My name is Mike Bigtime, and this blog is called Paperdubs. A cashier at Blockbuster thought it meant that I was rolling on twenty inch rims made of paper. That was not correct, but it is as good an explanation as any for the name of the blog. My name, or nickname as it were, was given to me many years ago and, unfortunately, lacks any interesting explanation, being a product of youth and an uncanny resemblance to an anthropomorphic canine cartoon criminal of the same name.
This blog has primarily been a repository for my thoughts on music or Taoism. While I will continue to explore those topics, as I restart the blog for the umpteenth time, I hope to broaden my scope somewhat. It is likely that science and skepticism, books, my new-found interest in minimalism, Robert E. Howard’s Conan, my attempts at self-improvement, tools that I enjoy using, and more will be subjects of posts at one time or another. I love discussion and will respond to the best of my ability to any comments or e-mails I receive.
