Who the hell are you, anyway?


Dec 6, 2007
Take off your damn shoes when you come in.

    Tidied the place up a bit here.  Go away for two years and everything just kinda gets.... nasty.  So how about we get this going again?


    WHAT THE HELL MAN?  This a blog about you.  Well, its really a blog about us.  Which technically could mean me.  That doesn't discount that you could have the blog be about you.  It's just about you..... and us... and me... and that guy over there.  Yeah.  The one over there eating Pringles... BBQ wavy Pringles.

    So, good ol' Solender (Destroyer of the Sun - in my book) opened this place up to be a.... what does it say on the side there?  Oh yes... a social experiment in mass culture.  Unfortunately, this experiment's results only showed the increasing lethargic response of the author's who volunteered.  I'm no innocent party in this either.  I came on the day before the August 11th post in 2005.  If you take a quick look at all the authors who posted here, you will see that for some reason, my name is missing.

    You may ask why this is so (it was a cover up!  They're trying to erase me!!).  It's quite simple really (He told me that I could live if I typed what he told me to type!).  I just never got around to posting (I posted over 42 entries and each one was deleted!).  Part of my reason was that I had other blog things I was trying to do on my own that ultimately didn't work out due to my imperialistic ability to not continue things (Ok. So the stuff in parenthesis is not true.)

    What happened to the blog owner and other authors then?  Well, most of them were already collaborators with other BlogDrive bloggers like Lost Religion and Osmotic Maelstrom.  The creation of this blog took place around the same time that many of the bloggers that socialized on the Main Tagboard were forming co-authored blogs and exploring the world of having multiple authors.  So it made sense that many of these co-authored blogs would disappear into the dark corners of BlogDrive.  Blogs are like people.  They come and go.  Some leave an impression.  Some just ... seem to never have existed.

May they all rest in 0101000001000101010000010100001101000101
(that's binary for Peace).

    What if one of those blogs that have passed away, were to rise from the dead with new authors?

    I'm the Hideout-Ant, the Muffin Man, the Disco Inferno Warmth Wisher.  This is my post about a part of the history of this blog as well as a few other blogs on BlogDrive.  This is my bid to revitalize A Blog Of You

Breathe in the air don't be afraid to care

"Q: How many members of the Bush Administration are needed to change a light bulb?
A: Ten

1. One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed.
2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb needs to be changed.
3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the light bulb.
4. One to tell the nations of the world that they are either for changing the light bulb or for darkness.
5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Haliburton for the new light bulb.
6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor, standing on a step ladder under the banner: “Light Bulb Change Accomplished.”
7. One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting in detail how Bush was literally in the dark.
8. One to viciously smear # 7.
9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush has had a strong Light-bulb-changing policy all along.
10. And finally, one to confuse Americans about the difference between screwing a light bulb and screwing the country."

Hamdog!!!

 


"The dish, a specialty of Mulligan's, a suburban bar, is a hot dog wrapped by a beef patty that's deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions and served on a hoagie bun. Oh yeah, it's also topped with a fried egg and two fistfuls of fries." - Daniel Yee, AP



Jesus Christ that's some deep fried goodness right there!

Nine minutes of pure genius!

I have nine minutes left on this annoying i-cafe machine and I don't know if I have anmything to say.  I'm doing a little background study on a mass-media paper in preperation for further study next year.  So I'm on a bit of a "Mass-Culture Tip" at the moment.

This blog is an aspect of that.  I want to know "the Mass".  I want to see it's face and ask it a few personal questions.  And to this end I have started this project in an attempt to create a "Mass" - an impersonal aggragate of humanity, or at least the humanity represented by blogdrive users who can be arsed signing into this (currently totalling 4!).

That's what this is, or at least that is one small part of what this might be - I have other ideas about mass-politics in a poly-despotic situation, but the simplest reduction of my reasons are as I have just stated.

Hang on!  Why the hell am I explaining myself to you?  BAH - one minute left and I haven't done anything on Modmyth yet.  Screw you guys - I'm going home.

A Blog Of You

a social experiment
in mass culture


As the title suggests this is not a blog about me, I already have one of those and trust me - one is enough. This instead is quite literally a blog about You.

All of You.

What do I mean? How can this blog be about you, when I am quite clearly the one writing in it? What do I know about you and your intentions for this or any blog?

Good question! I'm so glad you asked. In truth I know nothing (or next to nothing) about you and what you might want to happen here in A Blog Of You.

How could I? I'm not You. So why don't You take control of this blog? It is about You after all.

And right there is the very heart of the idea - control of this blog is yours for the asking. All you have to do is click on the 'Contact Me' button below and I will give you total creative control. Write entries, redesign the layout, add links, pictures, scripts - do whatever you want because You are, for all intents and purposes, the lord and master of this blog.

But remember: power easily assumed - is just as easily seized.
