Hello. I wear this name: Gary J Shipley. I think the ‘J’ denotes self-loathing, or self-aggrandizement, or both; which I think I can apply to most things, which makes it meaningless and scarcely worth saying, which may or may not be an informative introduction to the things I might post. I live on the bottom of an island sandwiched between Ireland and France. Nothing I post will hinge on this. There will probably be mention of things philosophical, literary, filmic… By Fottrell’s reckoning, I am currently 86% swivel chair.
