ms. brightside

i'm slowly trying to make this a cooler site. you guys are great and everything, but i'd like a cooler following.

totally kidding.

it took me about an hour just to put in the damn links, so you better check them out. as for the RSS feed, i still can't understand fully why that's so cool amongst the tecchies of the world, but all the cool bloggies have the link, and i'm totally a cool blogstar.

tomorrow i am heading to Boston. i will be seeing The Killers and Interpol, along with a few other bands with my faux-British friend, Gina. it should be jolly good fun. maybe i'll end up at a male fireman's auction, like i did during my last visit to beantown. then again, i'm devastatingly broke, so that might kind of hinder things drastically.

*bright side*
i need some time out of this town.
i've been listening to too much Bright Eyes.

i'll be back, hopefully less tightly wound.

Oh yes. We've had the feed for quite a while, darling.

Enjoy your trip. Come back with some catchy britpop style melodies in your head. Oberst might be a genius. But he's damn depressing. and sometimes i want to slap him around a bit for being so squawky. but we both hate the president. so i'll let him be.

Yeah, he has that effect on me too. I was listening to him on my drive back from upstate and I almost drove off a cliff! only kidding, but seriously.

read your comment on Howie's site and thought i'll stick this on your site for general information. I suppose i'm an 'advertising whore' trying to address the issue of 'advertising whoredom'.

here goes...

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

Nice blog '__________'. I, too, have a blog; a very progressive one.
http://educationalvignette.blogspot.com/ "

I think 'Howie' is a 'bot' that goes around to other blogs and sticks the above in. Praisex the gal or guy's site and then sticks in his blog link. If you notice, the above quote does not pass any comments on the CONTENT of the blog. Shows how much of your blog he's actually read. The best one is where he left the above message on the following site of a self-acclaimed 'prostitute' who talks about nothing but sex. No problem with that except i wonder what he means by 'progressive'.

It's just a numbers game to botBloggers like these whose egos bloat up as the numbers climb. They ain't interested in what you have to say but just want you to come to their site and flatter their egos. We might as well just put up an empty website if that's all it is about. Let's not make this blog thing another way to make us insignificant by such bot-attitudes. We feel so insignificant out there in the world that we come in here to share our personalities. All of us want this untill the whole purpose goes down the chute as we all want people to visit us and make us feel good. If everyone thinks of themselves, then nobody will think about anyone else. Then the whole blogging thing is fu#ked. Bots like Howie live in all of us. Let's not turn this blog thing into a TRAF-FREAKING farce.

Maybe we can start a banner thing which goes something like,

"Have you been HOWIED? - NO to BLOGbots!"

or

"Have you been HOWIED? - YES to SINCERE Blogging!"

WHAT YOU PEOPLE THINK? SEND ME AN EMAIL AND LET ME KNOW! LET'S START A MOVEMENT TO GET THIS BLOGGING THING RIGHT! pleeese howie...don't be mad at meeee...just trying to make this space in cyberland a little bit sincere since the world out there is sooo full of crap.


IN HONOUR OF HOWIE,

I've started BOTBLOGGING.BLOGSPOT.COM

send in your ideas and experiences on how we can make BLOGWORLD a sincere and meaningful place to interact!

Thank you Howie, this wouldn't have been possible without u! smooch!
