From my email (Squathole@gmail.com)
“….I still keep an eye on [your former blog] waiting for your return so you can write some GOOD shit instead of the watered-down crap you’re doing now. Maybe if you got better at it I’d follow Obalesque but you’re just friggin lame any more and I doubt it. So rat off, [real name], and see if I give a shit.”
Gosh I hate to lose a reader and a fan, especially one as insightful and articulate as Hugh Bris, but look. The deal was, I take a new job where they pay me twice what I was getting and (it was strongly recommended) I stop blogging, at least by name. That’s the deal, Hugh, and I’m old and wise enough to know how to prioritize. I know which side of my bread to shit on.
Fact of the matter is I shouldn’t blog at all, just haunt other people’s in their comments section. Lord knows I do enough of that, too.
So here’s my offer, Hugh. Today, and maybe every Friday, I post: nothing. Just empty space, with the suggestion that YOU, Hugh (“yoo hoo!”) take over. Post whatever you like in the comments section like you own the place. Anything at all, with one exception: my name and the name of my old blog. Same deal for everybody.
It’s Open Mike Friday. Do your best.
PS That’s not my logo, and if anybody officially objects, I’ll remove it.
