Publishers Weekly Reviews Gonzo Marketing
"...frequent dead-end tangents" they say, and "hopeless self-indulgence." You know, that reminds me of a story. Except first, I need to explain a little about the goats I was raising in the Catskill mountains in 1971. I was doing a lot of acid back then too, and sometimes I would get the goats confused with the trees. Did you ever try to milk a tree? But wait... what was I just talking about?

Worst Photo of RB Ever
I have old driver's licenses with less scary pictures on them. This is embarrassing. When he saw this one, Doc said I looked like I belonged on money. And what's that fucking BUMP on my head? Don't bother with the text either -- Ford recently undid everything good I said about them. Assholes.

Another Gauntlet Thrown Down!
John Robb writes: "Celebrity blogmatch. Although I don't have celebrity in this particular community, I probably have as many major media quotes as any of the potential contenders (which should qualify me for entry). Anyone want to take me on? You pick the topic (within reason) and let the contest begin. This is great: online mind vs. online mind."
OK, now I'm going offline. Gotta stop this shit and get some sleep!

Appearing Now on a Radio Station Near You
Just spent an hour talking with Jesse Berst about Gonzo Marketing on BerstAlert Radio. You no doubt remember Jesse from ZDnet's AnchorDesk, which is rumored to have had something like two million subscribers during his tenure. It was a good conversation.
As of right now, I'm out of here until Sunday, then off to give a talk in DC next week (the base site is here -- what a dumbass use of frames!) Anyway, I probably won't be packing, so I may be invisible for awhile. Fear not, though. I'll still be fomenting plenty of mayhem. News at 11. Blog on...

Dave Blogs BlogMatch!
I didn't think he'd do it (see below), but I'll be damned: blogging's favorite badass teddybear came through!
Julian Bond's Celebrity Blogmatch. I'm not sure how it works, but if I say something about weblogs here, I guess it shows up over there. Is it based on RSS? Julian says not yet, but maybe sooon. Can his server handle the flow? Will his page rise to the top of Daypop? What do the opinions of two bloggers matter in this crazy world we live in? And will the wienerboys show up? So many questions. BTW, the correct motto is "It's even worse than it appears."To supply some needed (???) context (???), I wrote in an EGR send this morning:
By the way, don't forget to VOTE at the bottom of the page. While Winer did give his (increasingly papal) blessing to this page, I have a sneaking suspicion he's not going to mention it on his own blog. If he does, I'm fucked. Dave is the undisputed (until now) 800-pound gorilla of blogspace. If he sends over the 32 billion people who read scripting.com, I'm gonna take a fall. Please do what you can to prevent this unseemly eventuality. The tattered remnants of my reputation are at stake. Oh, and it goes without saying (almost), them what has bloggers should BLOG THIS MATCH!

The C.G. Jung Page
A cool review of Gonzo Marketing from an unsuspected source. Well... you probably weren't expecting it anyway.
"Jungian Analyst Wolfgang Giegerich said that the pursuit of profit is today's overarching myth, and Christopher Locke provides an extraordinarily insightful look at the world of marketing, profit-making, and profit-losing -- always with a keen sense of business in changing historical and psychological contexts. His writing is always lively and lucid, and he's sometimes so much fun to read -- and the current is so swift -- that it's possible to miss the deeply layered intelligence he brings to our time and place."Also, page down just a bit for some links to my twisted sister, Liz.

I love the fire. Go check out Shelley's "blogmother" picks.
"Within these things called weblogs there are gems of creativity and brilliance that take my breath away. There's writing that's so good that I feel gifted with the words.

Saltire introduces The Blogfathers
Steve MacLaughlin writes: "After some reflection and input by Chris Locke I've added another Blogfather to my original dynamic duo." The rogues gallery grafik of Samuel Pepys, Samuel Johnson and Ben Johnson must be seen to be appreciated. I suppose many will object (starting with myself) that the lineup is radically missing any Blogmothers. Taking candidates over here. Send in your nominations. One possible contender is Lady Murasaki, who predates the guys by quite a goodly span. Or perhaps, closer to the day of Steve's Big-Three Blogfathers, Jane Austen.

What Are Webheads?
Dave Winer writes: "Continuing the What Are Weblogs thread -- weblogs are relational writing, that's why it is so close, if you're serious about it, to academic writing. Almost everything on this page relates one thing to one or several other things. Academic writing is supposed to be that way, but it was hard work before the Web."
Four very key ideas. Let's go through them one by one.
