When I started the MB back in 2000, my original intent was to showcase my resume and minuscule design portfolio. I had just made the transition from print design to web design and thought the purchase of the domain name would motivate me to learn more about designing and maintaining websites. It did.
In 2002, the MB transitioned from a professional showcase to a personal one. I started posting about all manner of nonsense, because, in case you have not realized by now, I have a lot to say about a lot of shit. In 2002 there was no Facebook. No Twitter. No MySpace. No news feeds. It actually took some doing to track down links and write about them. I was happy to do this because my job was mind-numbing and management at the data slaughterhouse had no idea what the hell I was up to. Soon, links, emails and IMs started flooding in from the likes of Jake, Michael, DJ, Kaye, Monica, CH, Gay Joe and Mark. Boredom loves company? I was happy to be posting regularly as it fueled my passion for creativity in ways that my career was not.
Enter Broz Design in November 2008 and my posting to the MB fizzling out. Maybe its because I am fulfilled professionally? Or because I would rather hang out with my kid than waste my time posting about a guy that got fucked to death by a horse? Or maybe it is time to take the MB into a new direction? I go with the latter. I have always dreamed about writing the Great American Novel but am no closer to that goal than I was last year. My New Years resolution for 2010 is to start using the MB to focus more on actually writing a book and get some ideas out into the ether. It may not lead to anything other than me doing what I have been wanting to do for some time and that is fine. It is not like you want to read about a horse fucking a guy to death, anyway. Right?
You may recall my web alter egos Matt Brozovich, drummer for Pittsburgh’s speed metal outfit Scorn Of Earth and Matt Brozovich, the little league fireballer hailing from Channahon, Illinois. Today I learned that I have yet another web alter ego, Matt Brozovich, the competitive body builder with alarming hair and an even more alarming physique. While I advised my youngest doppelgaenger coming up through the baseball ranks to stay off the junk, sadly, I think my newest doppelgaenger has a penchant for injecting himself with steroids and assorted testosterones from the animal kingdom. Regardless, I wish bodybuilding Matt Brozovich nothing but success with the weights and the competing. The time may be nigh to start the Matt Brozovich Internet Society.
You may recall my web alter ego Matt Brozovich, drummer for Pittsburgh’s speed metal outfit Scorn Of Earth (formerly of Headcase and Our Dying Moment). Today I learned that I have another web alter ego, a little league fireballer that hails from Channahon, Illinois. My younger doppelgaenger has a thunderbolt for an arm and brings the hickory to the dish. On April 5 he had three hits including a grand slam and was the winning pitcher in a 9-1 victory over the Rotary Club. On May 9 he hit a three run blast in the 5-2 win over Pizza 4 U. You have a bright future, young Matt Brozovich. Stay off the junk, eat your vitamins and keep your nose clean.
I was required to take the Myers-Briggs Personality Test for an Organizational Management class in college. Upon completion of said test, the results were lost in the vast abyss that was my alcohol soaked brain. Now that my hardcore binge drinking days are behind me and I have gone respectable, I decided to take the test again. Here are the results. Feel free to call me Erwin Rommel, or Wustenfuchs if you prefer.
I periodically type Matt Brozovich into Google to see what pulls up on the list of search results (usually me or something related to me dominate the top five). Recently I discovered I have a web alter ego; a Matt Brozovich that hails from Murrysville, Pennsylvania, plays drums in a speed metal band called Headcase and likes to say things like “You are a homo.”
