The New Coke of Blogging & Random Thoughts
Jameel and I agree that Beta Blogger bears a strong resemblance to New Coke. It remains to be seen whether that description remains in place or if it is left behind in a trail of cyberspace dust. As I said over at his place, I apologize for crossing the streams. That could very well be the problem, who knows.
What we can say is that thus far there have been a number of bumps, squeaks and bruises left by the change. The most notable one took place earlier today in which many of us were unable to reach our blogs. Instead we received some sort of error message. Since I don’t read Klingon I am at a loss for what this message meant.
Perhaps it was a note from the hamster union calling upon all hamsters of character to go on strike. As soon as they stop spinning those wheels the whole freaking thing breaks down. Or maybe it was something else I don’t really know.
That is ok. I don’t get paid the big bucks to know these things. I get paid the big bucks to write posts of whimsy and will about this and that. In case you are curious I don’t know what that last sentence about whimsy and will means. It sounds like some sort of wacky radio show. Welcome to KWILL’s morning show with Whimsy and Will.
I need to get a haircut. The old Jewfro is starting to look pretty raggedy, rather Unabomberish. I figure I either cut it or open up a laboratory and become a mad scientist. Now there is a term that I don’t hear that often anymore, Mad Scientist. I rather fancy it, the term, not being a Mad Scientist. Of course there are certain benefits to being a Mad Scientist.
Mad Scientists don’t pay takes. Mad Scientists don’t worry about hitting the motorcyclists who split lanes. A good Mad Scientist would have some evil acid that they drop on the motorcyclist’s tires. That would teach them to the split the lanes. If I were a Mad Scientist I wouldn’t have to worry about so many little details, like what to have for dinner, how to pay tuition for my children’s schools etc.
I’d live in a big castle at the top of a hill and scream things like IT IS ALIVE! and then maniacal laughter would rain down upon the gentle valley below. It could be fun.
Ok geek time. If you could be a character on Star Trek or Lord Of The Rings which would you choose and why? Remember, you cannot be both. Orcs don’t carry Phasers and Kirk doesn’t have a magic ring. Besides, he didn’t really need one. On a side note it appears that old Willie is now making guest appearances on blogs.
Maybe I’ll look into having him over here again. There is nothing like listening to him sing Rocket Man.
