I also got pretty tired of dealing with all the pseudo-archaeological nuttiness. I was getting worn out playing whack-a-mole and life is just to short to keep spending energy discussing the same things over and over again. I stayed disengaged from the circus around Graham Hancock's series on Netflix. I watched one episode (the one featuring Serpent Mound) and it was just the same old woe-is-me whininess about academia with a bunch of nonsense assertions and illogical arguments sprinkled on top. The SAA finally woke up and responded with the classic "strongly worded letter," about ten years too late to have any effect. Our profession let this nonsense germinate by saying nothing all these years, and now we're shocked that Graham Hancock has an audience for his silliness? I'm glad some people are working the issue but I just don't have the motivation at the moment.
Over the past year I've put much of my creative energy into music. I re-learned guitar and worked on getting my songwriting chops back. I set out last January to produce an album's worth of material on vinyl by the end of 2022. The vinyl records are still in the works (ordered as of today) but I did succeed in getting the songs written, recorded, mixed, and mastered. If you want to follow that endeavor, I'll be blogging about it on the Rusted Rabbit website. You can find links to the music there also or go straight to my page on Bandcamp. There's a Facebook page also where I'll be posting stuff. The website and Facebook page are brand new so there's not much there yet, but I'm much more interested in building those up than I am in talking about giant skeletons at this point.
One of my blog readers once commented that I would be Buckaroo Bonzai if I was in a rock band. That day has come.
