For starters, today is the sixth month anniversary of my website. Thank you for continuing to visit the blog, albeit silently, and read about my latest adventures and opinions.
I hope the domain change from masonbkerwick.weebly.com to the more user friendly masonplanet.com has not caused anyone too much trouble reaching the blog. I believe the website can still be accessed by entering the old domain, but I am not sure how long that will continue.
Is there anything else that should be changed as well? Please comment about what is working and what is not. Fortunately, this is an ever changing Web page, not a concrete slab, so updates can be easily implemented. Although if you would like the author to change, I recommend going to website that is not named after myself.
It is hard to believe, but it has been an entire year since I have posted any videos to YouTube. If anyone has forgotten why, please click here for details about my decision.
I figured since such a long amount of time has passed, it was time to create a new YouTube page. Hopefully, one with a more professional name than Martian34567. (Gosh, what a terrible page name! No wonder my videos attracted a limited audience.) To be honest, I created that account to be able to comment on videos, and later used it to launch Decorating with Mason.
To celebrate my new YouTube page, Mason Planet, I uploaded a new video this afternoon. For your convenience, I have attached it to this post. After watching, please subscribe to Mason Planet, as I hope to post more videos soon. Also, feel free to spread the word among your friends!
As many of you have probably read elsewhere, a few weeks ago President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder stated that the Justice Department would no longer defend the third act of DOMA in court. While this is not the end of the federal law, it is an important step towards equal rights. However, the resulting conversation has startled me for many reasons.
Instead of rambling about my personal beliefs, I will direct you to Henry Rollins new editorial for Vanity Fair.
Rollins has always been very vocal about his opinions, so his harsh language is not surprising. (If you do not believe me, watch this.)
I salute his efforts to increase tolerance and change. Whether we like it or not, our society will have to adapt to remain relevant. If nothing else, the increase in spending for marriage licenses, weddings and honeymoons could boost our fledgling economy.
