Who let the blogs out?
I wish it was cool to blog. I wish we could have cult followings and t-shirts and unauthorized biographys. I wish they did segments on us spitting on the paparazzi on those evening tabloid shows. I wish they went through our garbage and sold our gum wrappers on eBay.
But it isn't cool to blog. I mean, it isn't even unique to have a blog. Thanks to sites like blogger.com and myspace.com, everybody and their dog has a blog.
Something has to be done. I think we need to band together in militant little blog gangs and raid the other blog gangs. Maybe it can be Bloggers versus the Myspacers. I think we at blogger.com are clearly the more serious literary bloggers anyway. Let's go over to myspace.com and open up a major can of blogger whoopass. Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Let's go to work!
Ow! I just broke a nail on my keyboard. The rest of you go ahead. I've got your backs.
Power to the bloggers at blogger.com!
As long as it's not down for maintenance.
