Welcome to the Make-Ready, my new blog that will be very much like the old blog, only not on myspace and maybe featuring some pictures now and again.
Some of you may know that The Make-Ready (or the Make-Readys) is my latest choice for a band name. But, let's face it, I'm never going to actually name a band, and I don't really want to waste a cool name. So, here it is. For those who don't know (and I assume most people don't--those of us who are interested in printing presses are sort of few and far between), the make-ready refers to the process of preparing forms for printing by positioning plates for the most clear overall impression.
Um. But it also just sounds cool.
And it refers to process, which is sort of what a blog is, right? At least for me. It's a place for process--a place to try out ideas, to move, to adjust, to work out--resulting (in the best cases) in a clarification of ideas, positions, thoughts.
The list over at the side that I've titled "At the Ready" is just a fluctuating list of stuff that I currently think is cool. (Perhaps I should add the word "cool" to the list, since I seem to want to use it over and over here.) I'll try to keep it pretty up to date.
Yeah. So that's about it. Check back. Comment. Haunt. I'll probably keep writing regardless.
