Outline: 'ben, exposed'

'ben, exposed' is the section of benturner.com which I consider my favorite. It contains most of the topics you would expect from a personal homepage, but it goes much deeper and further. 'ben, exposed' has to be the most dynamic part of the site, since it must be updated with new articles, new writings, and new artwork, quite frequently. From this section, you'll find out more about Ben Turner than you ever wanted to know, but I'll be kind -- I won't tell you about my disgusting habits like some people on the Web do. Chewing toenails? Disgusting! I'll go about my cathartic experiences in a different manner.


my autobio

I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote my online autobiography, but I certainly said too much, and it'll all probably be interpreted incorrectly. Some people think I'm arrogant, some people think I'm hard to figure out, some people think I'm modest and sweet. People are a frigging pain, aren't they? Oh well, you figure it all out.


the soapbox

I had a great idea back in 1995. I decided I would create a page where I could write new articles every week about the most controversial issues in my life at that time. I guess I wasn't really doing much at the time I thought of the idea. Was probably watching a rerun of Sledgehammer or something. The Soapbox has, surprisingly, turned out extremely well, gaining praise from some of the other writers on the 'Net. Let me know how the articles strike you. Like a Daily Texan editorial or like a well-crafted poem by John Dryden?


my resume

Perhaps by now, you're thinking to yourself, "Man, I should hire this guy!" See if my skills meet your needs. Written up with stylesheets and available in several formats.


stuff you wish you had made

I've written a few things since I discovered I like writing. I even have some stuff from beforehand, but it consists of mainly boring drivel intended to be so technically sound that it would be impossible for the teacher to give me a bad grade on it. But these essays, poems, and pictures are better, I promise.


stuff I wish I had made

I've been inspired in life by many things, but I cannot place them on my site. I can, however, provide some of the essays and songs I've found in textual formats so you can see perhaps where I derive some of my motivation to do the things I do.


links elsewhere

Some sites on the 'Net truly make me think, feel, and stay up to frigging late hours at night. Usually those sites are personal, disclosing too much about the author's personality, designed in a beautiful and graceful manner. How could I use the 'Net knowing I didn't give these people credit for their role in my procrastination?


(dallas) music

Music is such an integral part of my life that you'd think I play an instrument. Well, I used to. Yeah, I didn't go into band or choir like all the other impressionable middle school kiddies. I played the violin. *ahem* But anyway, the music page gives viewers my rant on the music industry trends, and offers the largest compilation of Dallas band links anywhere on the 'Net. Got a small band? Advertise here.
