In any case, I'm jealous. Apparently, I haven't "played the game" well enough, or at all, by neglecting to attend all of those blogger-heavy cocktail parties that everyone else goes to, the ones where everybody hangs out on, say, Greg F.'s balcony overlooking a municipal park or opera house or avant-garde candy store, arguing about the strengths and weaknesses of Blogger or Wordpress, or that the real problem with the world of film blogging isn't that it is being overrun by unwashed trolls in Battlestar Galactica gear, but rather that the dialectics of epistemology in regards to film as argument have been degraded to the point of incoherence by, I don't know, Fox, or somebody. And then Fox probably says, "But I made you guys potato salad!" And then Marilyn punches him in the teeth, and Rick spits in his face, and then everyone laughs. Because these are cruel people we're dealing with, and make no mistake.
So I'm too much of an outsider, is what I'm trying to say. But guess who doesn't care about that? That's right, me. The truth is, I can form my own blurbs without groveling to anyone. All I have to do is cull my comments, from the thousands of posts I've put up over the last decade, and stitch them together, because that's legal, and who's going to stop me? Ed Howard?? Don't make me laugh.
And culled my comments sections I have done, and I now lay before you a series of world-shattering blurbs that make everyone else's look like a bunch of dumb-ass garbage. See for yourself.
