My brother used to be a deejay, and he had a similar feeling, that he was just talking to himself in that little cinderblock room. So one day, as an experiment, he left off a bit of the morning farm report. Maybe the barrows, maybe the gilts, I don't remember.

Anyway, the irate phone calls he received were just the reassurance he needed that he was not alone in the world.

My reading of the big blogs is that many have plenty of non-political stuff in them. Matt Yglesias blogs about the NBA, LGM does movie reivews, and Tbogg posts cheesecake all the time (both kinds, yummy), not to mention Thursday Basset blogging. Susie Madrak gives regular astrological updates, tristero over at Digby's place blogs about all kinds of stuff, and for humor, you can't beat trex at Firedoglake.

And then there's Wolcott.

Gender and sex, gender and sex. Criminy, isn't there a place left where a guy can go without being nagged?

"You never pay attention to me... unless you want some."

"I'm as smart as you, pay me the same!"

"My butt doesn't look fat in this, right? RIGHT?!!!"

They'll never be satisfied, unless you buy them something. Or learn all that laborious stuff so they can have an occasional orgasm and claim theirs are better. Yeah, right.

Aristotle Onassis was quoted saying (I paraphrase, because remembering is hard) " What's so hard to understand about women? You take them shopping. You make love. Easy."


But, but...I thought you had to specialize if you wanted attention!

Which is why I don't get much; I'm (politely) a generalist, or (impolitely) a popinjay.
