the sad short-term future of ˇ/blog

well, Marijke, (the soul of my research & development department,) will be alone in an office with a "dial-up" connection for the next three-to-four weeks, and tv is no longer permitted to spend work-time by the computer (Damn you, SARS!) and I've become busy myself, so my prediction is, in keeping with the trend toward minimalism adopted by bloggers at month ten (that may not exist anywhere but for in my own head,) May will be my shittiest month so far, at least, so far as my already limited blogger-output is concerned.

I urge all parties to come forward and lavish me with inspiring comments, even if they are shitty and retarded like these - and to generally feel free to chat amongst yourselves while I vanish from the face of this page for the next three to six weeks.

It kills me that I'm writing this when it should be effortless to not require any feedback and carry on cranking out crap day out and day in, but I'm fucked if I can find the time, energy, or wherewithal. Goddamn you, ˇblog-- I try so hard to make you a likable place and all you ever do is humiliate me with your blatant disregard for the difference between dashes, commas (and comas), periods, and those adorable semi-colons that try so hard to look natural, but actually, those semi-colons are kind of sweet. And so is your spelling. And sometimes, I gotta say, in the mornings, I go to you to see what you look like, to see if I might find something that puts me in a good mood, something that doesn't make me cringe, or feel sick to my stomach, and even though you mostly suck the bag, yblog, and you're impossible to spell, and you often don't make sense, and you generally always make me a little queasy, every once in a while you're just so cute that I keep coming back for more!

hey f-Y-t (workin' on a PC, don't know how to do funky characters yet -- damn PCs!), don't go unloading your hiatus on your trusty R&D dept. or your trusty mind-fuck dept. (that's tv, incidentally). we're still here. we're just movin' a little slow...
we may have stepped momentarily away from the y/blog comments screen, but we're still lurking in the background, waiting for the tidbits of information that you'll hold in your hand like fish for the dolphins at Marineland. we like fish.

you can take a break, y-with-an-umlaut, but don't let us down entirely. remember your peeps, man.

Thanks, Marijke. That's very inspiring. How can I even think of forgetting about my peeps?!

Posted by: ˇ on May 6, 2003 01:30 PM .

indeed, how can you forget your peeps?

Keep up fly shit muthafuckaaa quit bitchin'.

How about this: I'll bet you that you can't make a post a day for the remainder of the month. If I lose the bet, I promise a grand, stirring reward. For real.

Or, a competition: most posts, or alternatively most words, or maybe a more complicated judging system.

ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! ˇ! no go away!

All right D, you're on.

Posted by: ˇ on May 7, 2003 12:35 PM .

What's the competition then?

Posted by: D on May 7, 2003 03:10 PM .

Oh, I forgot to say. The competition is to see which of the two of us can look the most like a young George W. Bush.

You have until the end of the month to top my entry.

It's cruel that you should lay this harsh trip on me today. A few weeks ago, all of my Favourites were deleted from my browser profile and yours was one of the few sites with a URL I could remember. Now what? You really expect me to kill 32 empty hours/week clicking back and forth between my other two bookmarks ( and!?

I mean, COME ON!!

Posted by: The Albert Ross on May 7, 2003 05:32 PM .

Or perhaps I have a too unfair advantage in this contest, and we should go with your initial "one post a day" idea... I could probably do that, provided quality isn't an issue.

Do we at least get weekends off?

Posted by: ˇ on May 8, 2003 12:14 AM .

I think, should you take a weekend off, you must file two extra posts the next week.

Posted by: D on May 8, 2003 12:18 AM .

And Albert, might I suggest you add this to your list of bookmarks.

It's mind blowing stuff!

Posted by: ˇ on May 8, 2003 04:38 PM .

I concur. This is an awesome site.

Weird how spambots function as unconscious historians.

Look what this one's dredged up! The last great canyon in y/blog's history - almost a year ago.

Posted by: D on April 21, 2004 02:53 PM .

Just realized this point had been made a week ago on a different spam-resurrected page. Oh well.

I feel like I've been away from the blog world so long, and when I come back, it's a ghost town. A lot of my faves are on hiatus for one reason or another.

Not that I myself can think of anything to write about.

Posted by: D on April 21, 2004 02:57 PM .

I mean, why do we do it?

Posted by: D on April 21, 2004 02:57 PM .

It's a weird thing to do. There's something desperate about it.

Posted by: D on April 21, 2004 02:58 PM .

Or not. Probably not, unless you see something desperate in all human communication.

y, king, thediscourse, dong, tailors today, textism. aieeee!!
