Lani Kai: I've heard the expressions "springtime" and "summertime" and possibly "wintertime" but never "falltime" or "autumntime."
Lani Kai: Why is that?

DCLXXIV: Looking Back

© Colorburn
Lani Kai: Well, this blog appears to be slowly becoming what 99.9999% of all blogs out there become. That is, mostly forgotten.

Fun fact: Colorburn was first started on this day five years ago. Now, I don't mean to sound all wistful, but five years is kind of a long time, especially for a blog. A five-year-old blog is probably about 4,126 years old in human years, but somehow it's still limping along, managing to hold on to a small corner of my brain just enough to make me post something every now and then. Sure, I might only need one hand to be able to count the number of people that read this blog, but honestly, that doesn't really matter at this point. And nevermind that we get more visits from people Googling "kai greene nude pics," which apparently is not an uncommon search phrase. Someone landed here once with that, so I put it in the sidebar box cataloging the weird searches that bring people here, and that has acted as a sort of keyword spam that gets picked up by the Google crawler bot.

We were going to make this into a book. We didn't. It was supposed to bring us a stream of pocket change through sidebar ads. It didn't. But I look back, and that's okay.

Anyway, five years. In that time I've graduated from college, gone through numerous cameras (sold/traded them, not broken them), got a new job, and so on. DSLRs were still fairly uncommon when this blog started up, but now everyone has one, including ibleedgraphite although he quickly got bored with his. I've traveled quite a bit around the U.S. in the past five years and my tons of road trips have given me a solid 80,000+ miles on my car in that span. In fact the drive I made to San Luis Obispo to visit ibleedgraphite just a few weeks after this blog started up was the first time I ever went on a road trip without my family.

The past five years have seen many friends come and go. This blog, too, might one day see its last post. But I'm still good friends with ibleedgraphite and that means I don't have a reason to formally kill off the blog.

DCLXXVII: Problems

© Colorburn
Lani Kai: so, part of the problem is that I'm never online anymore after buying a tablet
Lani Kai: there's just no real reason to turn on the computer these days
Lani Kai: the other problem is that I haven't really taken any pictures since May
Lani Kai: and the last time ibleedgraphite took any pictures was probably in 2009.

DCLXXVI: These Hills May Be Alive

© Colorburn
ibleedgraphite: it is like the opening scene of The Sound of Music
Lani Kai: a scene which apparently does not exist on YouTube
ibleedgraphite: are you kidding?
ibleedgraphite: some of the Google Image results for "sound of music dvd cover" are highly irrelevant
Lani Kai: those are just some hills
ibleedgraphite: yes
ibleedgraphite: well, the opening sequence has a fly-in shot
ibleedgraphite: where the hills are steeper

DCLXXV: Shiny New Features

© Colorburn
Lani Kai: I need to stop forgetting about the blog
Lani Kai: did you know you can embed location tags in Blogger now?
ibleedgraphite: but aren't you always posting from home?
Lani Kai: well, usually
Lani Kai: but I thought it would be nice to tag the photo location
ibleedgraphite: can you tag the location no matter where you are?
Lani Kai: yes

DCLXXIV: The End Is Nigh

© Colorburn
Lani Kai: I forgot we have a blog
Lani Kai: in other news, the world is ending tomorrow
Lani Kai: that is, until it ends again next year
ibleedgraphite: I guess I should spend all my money tonight
ibleedgraphite: why am I even at work?
Lani Kai: you tell me
Lani Kai: I am not at work

Ed. note: The bloggers behind Colorburn will probably not be raptured, so service for nonbelievers will continue as usual, even if it means we have to do stuff like this.
