AGONY SHORTHAND QUICK SEARCH…..Well, we’re getting toward the end of the year and nearing the one-year anniversary of this web site/blog, a vanity project I hit upon one early February morning and had up & ranting within hours. I think I’ve written at least as much stuff in total for this site as I did during my 7-year run of SUPERDOPE fanzine from 1991-98. At this point it’s becoming unmanageable to find a particular rant/opinion/review unless you choose to comb through the entire archives, month by month. Harnessing the power of “the Internet” and search technology made possible by “Google”, I’ve hit upon an ingenious way to find the Agony Shorthand posts most relevant to your life and what you might be in need of knowing at any given moment. Get this: all you need to do is go to Google or Yahoo and type in (“Agony Shorthand” AND “____”) and you’re nearly certain to find what you’re looking for. A nearly complete, unalphabetized list of the “____”s are listed below:
