In the beginning was 1HeckOfAGuy.com …
1HeckOfAGuy.com was a hodgepodge of essays, poetry, music, oddities, jokes, photos, videos, visual puns, and, of course, more. Then, I went on a Leonard Cohen jag until gradually the new content was 95% Cohencentric. In 2015, things began to slide, slide in all directions. 1HeckOfAGuy.com and its sibling site, DrHGuy.com had to be dismantled. DrHGuy.com is now inaccessible, 1HeckOfAGuy.com exists only as a single post referring visitors to Cohencentric.com, my site featuring Leonard Cohen and AllanShowalter.com, my site for everything else (i.e., the original hodgepodge minus Leonard Cohen).
My initial goal for AllanShowalter.com is the reposting of the best non-Cohencentric items from 1HeckOfAGuy.com. Stay tuned.
