MORE WEB SITES DISCOVERED
Speaking of A-listers, according to Steve Garfield I was demoted from B-list to C-list on Blogebrity. I was so depressed I didn't leave the house all day. Kidding! It's actually a pretty genius idea to make bloggers link to them, thus improving their chances of winning the Contagious Media Showdown. I intended to enter myself, but will have to reserve my secret idea for another day. (Side-note: I've personally met 25% of those A-listers - shouldn't I get some sort of "rabid blog-fan" award?)
Meanwhile, freeper wingnuts attempt George Lucas boycott. Good luck with that.
Cine-tastic filmmaker David Lowery (*waves*) made a lovely vlog-film reflecting on his life's Star Wars influence.
O'Reilly reports iTunes may soon support podcasts. Joy! With iTunes already supporting video, can videoblog support be far behind?
And finally, more good news to people with ears and brains: Map Reveals Wind Power Potential "could generate enough electricity to support the world's energy needs several times over." Can you imagine it? Also check out the Arcosanti urban experiment in Arizona.
Sorry I haven't been posting much, dear blogfans. How can someone so unemployed be so busy? And yet sleep so much? I'm doing Blogumentary things. I'm wheeling and dealing. Rex bought me a rusty nail at Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge. That's a full day in my book, but no - then I went to something called a "Battle Rap." Seriously. I saw some rappers "front" and get "served." I'll vlog about it soon.
And finally, if you've ever wanted to race around Paris in a sports car early one morning in 1976 (trust me - you have), here is your beautiful destiny:

DEAR WORLD: SLOW DOWN
Getting back from holiday, it seems the blogosphere is continuing to explode. The hotel elevator had CNN on so I caught constant glimpses of the tsunami disaster, but was otherwise blissfully ignorant of anything happening outside of a few Chicago streets. I'm sorry, but I must respectfully demand things stop happening for a day so I can catch up, and perhaps do some cleaning.
For example, the videoblogging group rapidfires messages at me like bullets in The Matrix. Only I'm not "The One" so the bullets leave holes and now I'm bleeding. Soon I will consult The Oracle and also sleep on his couch. (See Vloggercon, above.)
Dan Gillmor said farewell to his newspaper gig and started a new blog about grassroots journalism. [Blogumentary will be screening at the U of MN J-school next month and Dan is scheduled to speak.] He links to the new Pew report on the state of blogs. It seems this blog thing is catching on.
Lots of conferences coming up: Blog Business Summit, Northern Voice, O'Reilly Etech, and of course SXSW 2005. (Which reminds me, I need to send SXSW a Blogumentary DVD in hopes of a joint Film/Interactive screening.)
LOCAL NEWS: Whoa -- 89.3 FM snagged both Mark Wheat and Mary Lucia. With Thorn and Steve Nelson already at the helm, all they need now is Kevin Cole and Shawn Stewart to round out the old REV 105 gang.
LIFE EXPLOSION WOMEN
"This is the zero hour."
Go give Juliah a big cyberweb interhug. She's having a poopy week. Rejection letters and more. I know! Let's write her acceptance letters.
We, the blogosphere, are happy to accept your right to write and vent, and to not give up.
"So, wow, life is kinda annoying"
Ciri: There may not be a promise land, but there are dreams out there for the claiming.

I MAY NOT KNOW MUCH
But three things I'm sure of:
That just says it all, doesn't it? Cock knocker, Fucky fucktard, fuckity shitbag, ass clown clusterfuck. These words are a cool salve on my pysche right now. Especially when expressed on dishtowels and things, from the mind of receptionista.
I arrived at receptionista via "Angel of the Blogosphere" Tim, who has taken to audblogging entries from mystery blogs. Very cool meme, which I'd do now if it wasn't 4am.
One post Tim read was from Rudderless.org, who've been having reservations about blogging lately. You are not alone. Do not be tainted by reviews from strangers. What's important is when you touch someone with what you've written, like that Clash post Tim read. Well, who am I to say what's important? That's what's important to me though. My post about my musical history was gratifying on so many levels... remembering and sharing that part of myself, hearing back from my friends, watching these threads echo between common experiences, triggering new memories. Mmm-mm, that's one tasty-ass blog sandwich right there!
I get all kindsa Google traffic from Farenheit 9/11 trailer-seekers.
Behold: The trailer is live. I a'splode.
