Well, no. Of course not. But there have been a few interesting comments in the past few days that make me wonder. First off, this one doesn't make me wonder:
>So. You yet live.
I had to find out you had a blog from some dip**** dissing you on IMDb?
I'm so deeply hurt.
Well, well, well. The world of the internets is indeed small! You know you're famous when pisher finds you. Aloha, pisher!! And you can say dipshit on my blog. As for this IMDB thingy, you can diss people on IMDB? Are there boards or something? If that's the case, I would suspect that someone's dissing me over Millennium, chiefly because no other show I've been on went more than seven episodes. Well, that's highly disturbing for several reasons. The main reason is because shit, man... that show's been off the air for YEARS! Why are people still talking about it? Talk about having a lot of free time, not only to complain about me on some IMDB board but to send psychopaths -- and pisher -- to my blog. Now that's commitment!
Because of this, I wanted to explain something about the comments. They're moderated. What that means is, when you send in a comment it goes to me, and I can either accept or reject it. So far, I've accepted all comments... except for the most recent one, which is just a screed against me that obviously came from someone still posting and angry about Millennium even though the show's been off the air almost eight years. What's so lovely about it is that the guy is, of course, anonymous. Wow. SO brave. So angriest dog in the world dude, your comment has been rejected. Fuck off.
In the next comment, Mr. CrankyPants sez:
>Um--didn't The Riches pilot get good ratings? I vaguely remember reading that it did.
Irish Travellers with fakey southern accents, played by British actors?
More power to 'em, but I've met the real article, and this ain't it.
Seems like a good show, though.<
The pilot for The Riches DID do well. But I'm talking more about word of mouth, the way people go on about The Sopranos or Rome or The Shield. I wondered why nobody was talking about this show. And I'm sorry the show isn't accurate. Because really, that's what TeeVee's about -- accuracy. As we all know, there are really people with superpowers. There's an island in the middle of the ocean where weird experiments are taking place. And stars really can dance.
>Can I be excused to read a book, watch a classic movie, or walk my dog?<
Heh heh. You'll read my blog, but watching a good TeeVee show cuts into your high-and-mighty personal time? Now THAT'S rich! Of course you can read a book (no Harry Potter, please!) or watch a classic movie. Download The Amazing Mr. X for free (it's public domain) at archive.org. And you'd better walk your dog, or you'll be paying the price.
So. This is my blog, and I can say whatever I want. I don't surf the internets looking for mentions of myself, so if people are bashing me somewhere else, have at it. I know nothing. This is a personal choice that's been working for me so far. If you think I'm the Sanjaya of TeeVee, whatevs. At least that means I've got cool hair. Speaking of Sanjaya, I almost want to vote for him, to watch the entire American Idol machine collapse onto itself. I think some people (ten-year-old girls aside) are voting for him just because it's funny. You know, the way people voted for Bush. "Check it out, I'm gonna vote for the moron. It's okay. He'll never win." Good luck, Sanjaya! Keep the faith, dude!
np - The Mary Onettes, "R.U.N." Huh. Wicked cool band!
