Whose Shake Is This began mainly as my cynical, tongue-in-cheek lampooning of the concept of blogging which, as I’ve recently stated, was all the rage back in 2001 when this online sadness diary first saw the great and terrible light of day on June 23, 2001. Since 2001, it’s evolved (some might say devolved) into something a bit different while retaining an eerie similarity to the original.

I moved Whose Shake Is This from Blogger to my own domain, themagicworld.org, and began using WordPress as a publisher, which I find to be far more affable and useful than I could have imagined.

As for content, and what it’s all about, well…Whose Shake Is This is a confounding mix of Anime, NASCAR and Soccer which are three of my great passions. I guess the most honest thing say is that it’s about what it’s about, and if you can make some crazy cuckoo cosmic connections between these divergent cultures, well then you can take the checkered flag and do a few burnouts and head straight to Victory Lane.


The Author

Fushigi Yuugi 01

I was going to hire someone to write a little bio piece on me, but he ran off with his down-payment of a case of beer and I haven’t heard from him since. I suppose I could get some up and coming NASCAR driver to interview me. It would be good publicity for him and it would get me off the hook that’s for sure.

The tags and categories and the writing speaks for itself I suppose. No need to embellish it any further or dig a deeper hole. I never let the facts get in the way of the truth.

For the curious, my wife and I have been together for more than 12 years and we met due to our mutual interest in Anime. In a way, we owe it all to Fushigi Yuugi. We live in Southwestern Wisconsin with our two dogs. She does not, however, appreciate or share my enthusiasm for NASCAR and Soccer.
