“Do it anyway…”

Welp, frennz, I up and bought a web domain, and, from here on out, I shall be tinkering with my own website: ebougis.com. The goal is to host some original artwork (not mine!), music (mine!), and, more importantly, sustain a kind of research portal for my own more polished, academic writings. It’s a work in progress, and perhaps at some point I will decide all I need is a simple ol’ blog–but until then, we have lift-off at ebougis.com.

“Do It Anyway,” right? (Yes, frennz, Ben Folds Five most definitely still has it.)

I also want to re-open the invitation to any readers who might like to become contributors. You can be anonymous, or use a pen name, or go on as yourself. Wever. I just want the blog to be a big notepad.

I’ve also decided to add forums to the website. Here is the inaugural forum: What Keeps You Catholic?

Meanwhile, God willing, I can get some actual e-books and publishable articles into the light of day.

Oh and I’m also tinkering with making some YouTube videos, but I’d like to hear from my devoted readers about possible topics of interest. Or maybe you’d just like me to orate the Latin editions of Dr. Seuss books?

You might put your love and trust on the line
It’s risky, people love to tear that down
Let ’em try
Do it anyway
Risk it anyway

And if you’re paralyzed by a voice in your head
It’s the standing still that should be scaring you instead
Go on and
Do it anyway
Do it anyway

There will be times you might leap before you look
There’ll be times you’ll like the cover and that’s precisely why you’ll love the book
Do it anyway
Do it anyway

Tell me what I said I’d never do
Tell me what I said I’d never say
Read me off a list of the things I used to not like but now I think are ok

Call it surrender but you know that that’s a joke
And the punchline is you were actually never in control
But still, surrender anyway
