The Week in Review
Baseball celebrated its centennial in 1969, This Recording will celebrate its own occasion in 2106. It will be a special moment and we can only assure you that we will secure Joyce Carol Oates for that event. She'll be cold and brittle, but it won't feel like that when you see her up close.
In between those hundred long years, we will only think about how blogging was at the beginning. First came Prodigy...then Instapundit. Andrew Sullivan showed up a little later, asking if we'd seen any bears. We referred him to the Prodigy chatroom. It was like that for awhile. You weren't there. You didn't know.
- Almie's two types of guys.
- The Bachelorette made a poor choice among other poor choices.
- We learned important things about the world's biodiversity.
People who don't know how to blog, or how to blog reliably, are intruding on my cyberspace all the time. They write these long essays with no pictures of supermodels in between. Am I supposed to read such drivel? I prefer to spend my time quietly analyzing why Gif Party makes me laugh harder than anything else in the world.
- Michael Cera brought you his mixtape of his favorites.
- Lauren explained (500) Days of Summer better than I ever could.
- Almie thought it was really great you had a boyfriend.
These "pros" don't know how to blog, so some of them podcast, and others of them run Mediate. This is the way of things, you can't get too caught up in it. If the world stays this way, it might work to get angry. But the internet consumes all its inefficiences way better than any other medium ever has.
- Georgia brought you the thrill of kissing her for the first time.
- Ellen Copperfield broke up with her boyfriend in a multitude of ways.
- Molly brought the horror of True Blood to your doorstep.
We return so often to the classics.
