Double Dead Gonzo
People like to pretend that rock & roll has no literary merit. Shows what they know! Be sure not to miss the Extra Large Economy Size Grafik! Shit, I gotta get me a girl name of Shemane too! Is that cool or what? And get this... Amazon.com Sales Rank: 38. OK, fuck, that does it. Goodbye cruel world...

Hey, Wait a Minute!!!
I'm doing a slow burn over AKMA suggesting I'm priapic. At first I thought he meant peripatetic. Then I looked it up. I mean just because my homepage design was copied by this woman who calls herself Cynthia Plaster Caster is no reason to go getting all STUCK UP! Man of the cloth my ass! (btw, be sure to mouse over the various uh... menu items.)

More on the Imminent Halley-RB Transform
The proposed bidirectional lifeswap of Halley Suitt and RageBoy seems to be generating quite a lot of buzz in Blogaria today. For instance, Frank Paynter sends email...
I dunno... we my have run into the realm of FUQ (Frequently Unasked Questions). The body/life swap event that Halley and Chris are looking for can, to the best of my knowledge, only be accomplished as follows:

I am very proud to announce that I've been awarded the coveted Portnoy Chair at the prestigious University of Blogaria. Henceforth, I will be Professor of Priapic Ideation at that noble institution. However honored I am by this appointment, I want all my fans, underlings and groveling minions to know that fame has not gone to my head. A simple "Herr Professor Doktor" will do. (Hell, an even simpler Doctor would do, but that's a complaint no Portnoy Prof worth his salt would ever admit to.)

Halley Can Have It!
Halley Suitt writes: "Don't you know I'm a Chris Locke wannabe?!" All I can say is that I'm ready and willing to trade lives with anyone who can provide: a) the tech to accomplish the transfer and b) a little healing garden-variety BOREDOM for a change. So Halley, if you'd like to swap your monotonous at-home mommery for my hyperfascinating superexciting life -- for a day, a week, a year, however long you want -- just tell me this so I can get oriented: where do you keep the Pampers?

RB Raps About Blogging on Marketplace Radio
I talked about weblogs today on the Marketplace Morning Report. The whole rap is called out from the Marketplace homepage (at the moment). Or you can link direct to the RealAudio stream. Here are some notes I took before the taping, and edited a bit afterwards.
Weblogs, "blogs" to their many enthusiastic fans, what they are, 25 words or less, yada yada. People writing personal stuff. About love and loss and joy and death and sex and like that. Never been an outlet for us to say who we are. Just NEWS and ADVERTISING and POLITICS and MINDLESS ENTERTAINMENT a la (can I say this?) Disney. Not that I'm not a big fan of mindless entertainment myself, but there's never been a choice before, and now there is and people are coming to it by the millions just as business is wringing its hands that the Internet is a "failure," the fucking morons. (NOTE: don't say "fucking" morons.) Of course it's a failure! For ramming the same old shit down our throats. (NOTE: don't say... oh, fuck it.) Kids are talking to each other about Columbine and the recent rerun in Germany. About breakups and disappointments, small joys, big setbacks. About fucking. And shit. And fucking shit up. But more than that. Giving each other permission to be human. Passing along encouragement, support, and (if we can just not snicker for a second) hope. Plus lotsa laughs.

Keep Trying Meets Fuck It Give Up
Mike Sanders asks: "As I read the blogs I am wondering why there is such a disdain for the search for truth." I dunno, Mike, because it's so fucking incredibly crashingly boring? Your blog was well named. And don't try bringing the Jews and Arabs into it. Just another red-herring ploy to resurrect an obsolete and self-righteously judgmental moralism.
Take our collective coming full circle. What part of that is true? All of it? Selected bits in a manner of speaking? None? Can we have a little more relativism, please? Like about sex and death and joy and funny situations and making it through the goddam night so we can keep on telling each other our stories? Thanks. The truth can blow me.
