i don't blog for quarters. i blog for the benjamins, baby
Dinah -"Well, I've given away $18 in voluntary micropayments via PayPal in the last two days and I've just gotten started. Judging by the reactions coming in to Derek, I think we've got a good chance to get this meme on the road.Yes, without banner ads. Because having banner ads would make you a dirty whore, but accepting quarters like a pan-handler makes you an artist.
If you visit a site and you like it, give them some money. Even a nickel is fine. Just a token of your appreciation. If we all do it, think of how many people can pay their hosting costs and keep giving us wonderful things to read and listen to and look at. Without ads. Say it together, without ads..."
No, really, this is a great idea. I can't wait for the Louvre to install little quarter boxes so I can support artists the next time I go there. What a great way to show people I care. Don't send thoughtful email, send spare change.
(Yeah, if this were old-skool webloglog, I'd carefully follow the bouncing meme, but I'm a tired, lazy bum these days.)

Derek on the refocusing of powazek.com -"But in the more fundamentalist definition, where a weblog is external links and commentary, powazek.com is not. Not anymore.You mean there was a time when it was external links and commentary?
I have made an internal decision to refocus this site on its original goal: to tell the people who care about the Powazek Productions (fray, kvetch, sfstories, and more) what's up with them, and me.""I am doing this because I want my site back. I feel that my conscious effort to be a weblogger has brought me too much annoyance and bile, taken too much time and energy away from my other projects, and interfered in my personal life and friendships. It hasn't been all bad, of course. Just bad enough to make we want to refocus on what brings me joy, instead of what doesn't."I'm just glad that derek is getting back to what he really enjoys in life: talking about himself."No, I am not doing this for attention or to cause a stir. No, I don't want to debate it."Interesting point. Discuss

self-referential humor is always funny
I love my uncle joey. After complaining about my lack of linky love for him in my glorious return last night, today he becomes proactive and posts something i could never resist linking to.

from bugger blogger - who's design could probably induce epelectic seizures - mission statement -"This site is here with the sole purpose of ridiculing those who think they have something of interest to say to the rest of humanity. I speak my mind. I am not kind, but that's OK. If I can cause one person I link to here to stop blogging, I will consider my time well spent."People are quitting left and right (see previous post because I'm too lazy to do another link and screw you for not scrolling down in the first place) already. Besides, if you actually "cause" someone to "quit" guaranteed they'll put up some big melodramatic angry quitting page, but then they'll just come back a few days later.
Encouraging people to quit is bad. If this guy actually succeeds - which of course he won't - what the hell would happen to webloglog? Think about my needs here for a second, geez.
But the real problem with bugger blogger is that, well, let's just look at a random entryEuro Blog: Lamers! "All you need is: . . . a blogger powered page . . . ". There is life Out There beyond Blogger!!!It's stupid. It's boring. The exclamation points don't make up for the fact that it's just not entertaining. At all. Oooh, a sentence or two of context-free, childish "insults" about some stupid blog nobody has ever heard of. Whoopeee dooo.
In fact, I tend to agree with the self-described boring as hell brig -"if you're going to devote a site to nasty commentary, you could at least do your research. this kind of thing makes me pine for the good ole days of bloat. at least sally knew her targets well enough to come up with some really *good* biting commentary"It's sad really, that even since psycho-mikey professed his love for "sally" she's disappeared.

ook ook theodesia is supposed to be a "clone" of benbrown -"So there you have it, I AM LIKE BENBROWN, BUT HIPPER, YOUNGER AND SEXIER!!"Oh yeah, like that's real difficult. I've known dead slugs hipper, younger, and sexier than benbrown. Also, if you're going to "clone" someone, maybe it'd be better to clone someone who isn't obsessed and in love with a girl from a videogame.

Remember kids, winners never give up and quit! And knowing is half the battle.
I can't even keep up with it all! weeebloggers quitting, bloggers semi-quitting because their blogmate is quitting. Hah, fake quitting is so three months ago. And then of course there's little ms. girlyhero who is just too cool for blogging now, but isn't quitting. I certainly mourn the loss. Where am I going to find another weblog that links to the loser who has the worst fucking mailing list on earth eighty million times a day? And where, for the love of god, am I ever going to find pictures like this anywhere else?
QUITTERS SECRETS REVEALED - if people put up a page that says they're quitting AND it includes an email address (or, even worse, a stats counter) it is a desperate cry for attention. DO NOT bother to email them. DO NOT encourage them. They will return in a week either way because they are whores for attention.
Also, I don't care what the big k and the rest of the world think, I take full credit for neighbor sex being the blog of the week. That's right, when you want new bad-ass pushing the envelope blogs, screw the pyra kiddies - read webloglog. Even though I never update.

still on vacation
webloglog is still on vacation, and will return to its semi-regular programming sometime next week, possibly. Mabye. No guarantees here.
However, in the mean time, take this update. Please.
Judge Graham's mission statement at the new Kill Your Blog -"Certain events in early June have made us decide that there is a need for a metablog like Kill Yr Blog, and the first judgement of KYB deals with those events. We have decided to act before the whole blog scene turns into Lord of the Flies."I get the distinct feeling the "blog scene" has turned into Lord of the Flies, and Graham is piggy."We don't care about all the inane blogs out there maintained by unprecocious teenagers. Neither do we care about dubious design cues or how a blogger pronounces riothero. Our concern is with those bloggers who have been indulging in disgraceful behaviour and who should know better."By act, he means start a weblog judging those who have the sheer audacity to do something indulgent and disgraceful, like in their first case, which revolves around the indulgent and disgraceful act of judging someone as a thief.
Geez, that's like ripping on how weblogs only link to other weblogs, on a weblog that only links to other weblogs... err, never mind.
Not that I have anything against Kill Your Weblog, anything that encourages and fans and sticks its nose into inter-blog squabbles I have to be in favor of, because it'll probably provide great webloglog fodder. And maybe, just maybe, if we're all lucky, it will "judge" webloglog. Which would be a riot.
(Although, to be fair, if I had been updating, guaranteed, I would have had quite a few things to say about the "divas" umm, extreme reactions to the froggity bloggity bs, and a link to this, and, also something like, umm, the digital divas have reached a collective new high - publically slandering a 13-year-old for being a "thief" and "stealing" the, admittedly genius and original, idea to join the word "blog" with "frog")
Bonus mini-update because I love you webloglog readers so very much - neighbor sex.
