About

jennampi.gifI’ve been blogging since 2003, although the first iteration went under another name (“What’s the Rumpus”) and was hosted on Vanderbilt’s servers (and a university-owned website). I switched to this address and name sometime in 2005, I think. What has not changed is my lack of agenda for the blog. Initially, I used it as a place to put content I would have normally sent to friends via email. Now, I make a slightly greater effort to write about music, culture, art, networks and other topics that dovetail with my academic research interests. But there’s also a fair number of videos, not a small number of which involve a stupid human, stupid cat, or both. If you’ve arrived here by mistake, and really want to learn more about my academic research, please head to my main professional webpage. If you are one of the thousands of people that show up every month interested in pants that are both baggy and skinny, or beavers, allow me to tell you that you are not alone, and all of you are bad at using google. You might try bing.

Oh, quickly: I like the little story to which What is the What? is a punchline of sorts.
