C'mon, tell me how important I am
Hesiod at Counterspin Central
wants to know how much you love him and how important he is to you and how you couldn't go on without him... or at least it sounds that way to me
Justin Timberlake's biggest fan
Wow. From Cry Me a River
. (permalink doesn't work, scroll down, you'll find it.) This is completely uncalled for. Seriously, I'm not even saying this for the purpose of defending Mac Diva, I just can't stand violent talk. Of any kind. This kind of discourse will get us nowhere:
She gives the strong, independent, real women a bad name. I'm sure her significant other beats her to a pulp and while she spends the day at work with sunglasses on, she tells everyone how much she loves him and how good he is to her. She's one of those women who end up dismemberd and found in a ditch.
She also.. ahh, forget it.. pointing out all the errors in her idiotic ramblings would take too much time.
Anyways.. "Anger in the Blogosphere
"* is the post on Mac-a-ro-nies that followed. Read it, it's good.
Full Disclosure: Mac Diva is entered in the aforementioned "Weblog Contest" on the Truth Laid Bear, and this is the post that was submitted. I'm linking to it against my better judgement-- It's just a good piece and it's relevant to what this blog is all about. So there.
Blogs for masochists
..seem to be pretty popular
. I think my favorite part is that she intentionally runs a blog where she announces "Serving the Blogosphere's needs for intolerance, profanity, and abuse since 2002. If you came here looking for sweetness and light, you've come to the wrong place. Flee now, while you still have your fingers!"
in the header, then seems disgusted by the same behavior in her readers.. Don't forget to check out the FAQ
for more snarkiness.
I went to The Truth Laid Bear site to read about the "New Blog Showcase", which apparently is a contest to see which new blog can get the most votes and/or links for it's blog.. Just what I like to see..* Scrolling through the Ecosystem
, which for those of you that have never been there, is a listing of the how great each blog is by the amount of links they get to them. This blog is listed as #1461, under the heading "slimy molluscs" (hence the title of this post you see..), which is oddly strange seeing as how I myself did not submit my blog. Or any of the other stuff I seem to be getting signed up for. Or comments on other blogs, or.. well, the list goes on and on. Anyways, these list, contests and such are precisely the type of things that promote the "whoring" of one's blog, which in turn will bring us the demise of blogdom as we know it.
* For the record, I was led there by not 1, not 2, but 3
bloggers emailing me trolling for hits to their blogs for this purpose, which leads me to believe that some people reading this blog are completely unclear on the concept altogether.. ugh, hope that doesn't make me sound too much like this
, wouldn't want to start any rumors....
Gone daddy gone..
Ok, so not quite yet. But trust me, there will be some partying done in the Eschaton household while pop's gone
, and I'm not talking about blogging, if you know what I mean...
In any event, hopefully this experience will convince "the farmer" to start his own blog..
