Hmm, so if a guy who doesn't blog walks into a room full of bloggers and says "What's up my bloggers?" and tries to give the "recognized blogger hand-gesture" (I believe in my youth this was called "fronting") -- will he be punched in the face? And if so, will others cheer it?

i think anne is wearing her negative-capability boots, sensing that's how other people think of the word "blogger" and maybe exaggerating just a little to match the tone of "dispicable," which is indeed ridiculous.

or maybe i'm just frontin.

I would fart near him and then sidle away slowly, blaming it on him.

If you look at my blog closely, and I'm not suggesting that this is a good idea, you will find that everything I write is channeled straight from Jesus himself.

How can this possibly be heinous?

I was drinking a Coke when I read what Charles wrote. Bad Charles! Bad!

Mike Perez says hello, by the way.

I would be interested to know what Jesus thinks of the word "blog."

Reb, your take reveals that I missed the sophisticated cultural sensitivity of the editor-guy who preferred not to use the word "blogger" in polite company. The Diarist didn't want to be Fronting /

blogland IS full of THUGS.

That editor-guy best not say "blog" -- I'll stick my foot up his ass.

But seriously Anne, I think you're right on top of the cultural sensitivity -- some are using the word "blog" as a slur -- and I find that both astonishing and fascinating and of course, stupid.

Reb,

I actually know said editor-guy (he sent me the same invite as AB to the "diary" maintained on [name of foundation]). He and I have been friends for a couple of years now. We share some similar personality traits, like caffeine-induced ADD and chain-smoking fiendness. One difference, if I am frail and wimpish, he is uber-frail and uber-wimpish. He asked me once (when I was an intern for a certain lit mag where he was poetry editor) to help his gf carry a box of submissions because it almost broke his back. You know what follows. So by "sticking your foot up his ass," you might end up with bone shards there. Just saying :p

I love the idea of being a thug. Bone shards in all my enemies asses!

I was really thinking about MD's bone shards ruining your shoes :p

Well, great. Now I officially have an industrial-sized crush on Loudon.

I've been trying to avoid it, given that she's the great and noble Yahweh Megaphone, but it's too much to resist.

Hail, Loudon! Hail!

Oh: and I would beat the snot out of that fronting, punk-ass wannabe with a quasi-metaphorical shoe. E-Side!

Oh, so we ARE talking about MD. I thought so.

Jesus says that the word blog, while being a bit ugly sounding, is just fine because he understands its etymological origins. He also said that blogging is NOT a verb and if hears one more person using it as a verb, he's gonna open up a can of smite on thine ass.

I wasn't talking about anyone in particular -- my pointy size 8.5 will make its home in any blog-fronter ass. I'm hardcore and shit.

Do the kids still say "hardcore"?

 
At 10:58 AM, Blogger François said...

No, not really. They say stuff like "pimp," "phat" and "tight" nowadays.

Loudon --

My Jesus is better than your Jesus.

Don't be so sure, Missy.
