|I refuse to “categorize” this blog, reserving the right to talk a/b ANYTHING that’s of interest to me at the moment! As a matter of fact, it (this blog) IS all about me! I’m also open to suggestions and love comments and ideas from others. I keep it “G-rated” / “family-friendly”, though sometimes I may link to courser content with a warning to readers.
I migrated this blog from Livejournal jimpossible84.livejournal.com to here recently after having a lot of server down-time issues there.
Many blogs give you lots of narcissistic self-portraits, long whiny rants, silly, flowery photos of cute kittens, kitschy knickknacks, and silly teen-aged fashions; but with Wildstar84 you get all the cool stuff all the time including interesting personal stories about people, places, events and even sweet little lovable me and my busy, exciting life; thought-provoking political and religious commentary and satire, stunning photographs and images covering a wide variety of subjects, entertaining comic strips that’ll leave you ROFL, hot links to cool videos and great music, useful tech tips and links to some of the best of other blogs’ stories and articles as well as important news you can use right now! You can even comment anonymously and tell me how much I suck (or rock)! What more could you possibly ask for from a blog? And, if you do think of something, hey, just ask / tell me on my Formspring. There you can anonymously ask for and receive my inspiring wisdom and advice personally for free too! All things are possible w/Jimpossible! I also try to provide links to news and commentary that you usually WON’T get from the “mainstream” news (since that’s easily available elsewhere!)
If you have a question, ask me (on Formspring: http://www.formspring.me/wildstar84) – or just want to chat – drop me an email (turnerjw784 atsymblethingy yahoo dott com – incl. “wildstar84″ in subj & it won’t get marked as spam) or instant-msg me. BTW, this blog & formspring allow anonymous questions / comments, so don’t be shy!
I want to be your swell internet blogger who does all the really neat stuff you want a swell internet blogger to do. In fact this is probably the most swollen blog you’ll find, lol!
Derick Wildstar & Kim Possible
Blog name: “Wildstar“, aka “Kodai” – old anime character alter-ego (image) from high school days – we had very similar looks and personalities. “Jimpossible” – Old blog name from a nickname my kid & I mutually came up with for me after we had watched too many Kim Possible cartoons together back in the day!
Fav. quote / Bible verse: “For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Son that whosoever Believeth in Him should NOT perish, but have ETERNAL LIFE” John 3:16
Religion: I am a follower of Jesus Christ, would like everyone to KNOW Him & would like to share His love and salvation to any/all who is/are interested! How to have a Personal RELATIONSHIP with Him (God) – read more here!: http://www.chick.com/information/general/salvation.asp
Politics: “The best government is that which governs least”.
WARNING: We DO sometimes talk a/b politics AND religion here! Opposing views welcome – I promise I won’t flame you, but I WILL delete / ignore flaming, mean, profane or personal-attack comments and after being warned, you may be blocked!
