Good things come to those who wait…?

Yeah, that’s right — I’m finally updating under my own username! Much thanks to Roo for helping me get posts here until now, but, as much as that help was appreciated, I’m definitely relieved that era is over.

Just to keep everyone in the loop as to the update schedule that was hinted at elsewhere, I agree that main site updates can be expected very soon and am also very happy to see that happening. BMEvideo is nearly ready to be udpated and should have new content within a day or two, and the main BME site should be flooded with experiences and images early in the week, if not sooner, depending on when a small number of technical issues that are barring that update can be resolved. I’ve had a chance to skim through some of the content that’ll be going up over the next weeks and I’m very excited and pleased about it — giddy, really — and I think you will be as well.

Roo and I will need to focus primarily on getting the main sites caught up, so we may be a little slow here on ModBlog over the first week, but I do have a few things I want to post later today. Let me prelude to them by posting a couple pictures from one of my favorite anthropological photo books, Africa Adorned. On the left is a Murle woman from Sudan with decorative facial scarification, and in the middle and on the right a Dinka man and woman, also from Sudan, with forehead scarification.


Anyway, stay tuned later today for a few brief posts.

  1. WOOT! Welcome back! I’m gonna get started on either making a story or taking some pics so I can (finally) have an IAM account. Shit I’ve been so lazy.

  2. Welcome back – been waiting for ball to get rolling and can’t wait for BME to start it’s updates!!

    And once more for good measure, YAY!!!

  4. These are beautiful images. One of the problems indigenous African tribes are having at the moment is the outlawing of scarification so everyone should cherish these kinds of images.

  5. Welcome back – at last we can have a vibrant ModBlog and you get to keep doing what you obviously need and love.

    Everybody wins :)

  6. Welcome back Shannon!
    I absolutely love the scarification piece on the left. It doesn’t really look like scarification, more like tiny tiny bead implants. Also the color of the scars isn’t that different from the natural skin tone..

  7. I’m so happy you’re finally able to come back, congratulations and welcome home! YAY!!!

  8. Welcome back dude!

    I’ve been waiting for things to get back to normal since you were rather forcibly removed…

    It’s a pity about bodytwo, but it proved that you can’t keep a good man down :)

    Welcome Home, Welcome Home :)

  9. Yay, you’ve got your site back!

    Oh gosh, I remember sitting down in the middle of the aisles just oooing and awwwing at the pictures in Africa Adorned…I think I’m finna buy the book.
