hamblog, now with less content

My one defense is that I am generating content elsewhere, especially for live audiences, which provides immediate and more satisfying feedback than toiling away on this bloggie, which I have no idea if you (yes you) are reading and/or enjoying, unless you comment on it, electronically or in person. Get it? Just this past weekend two more lurkers revealed themselves to me (yes, you and you) and mentioned they are hamblog devotees. That’s nice — now that I know!

I’m sorry, it’s really annoying when a blogger complains about a dearth of comments. My bad. I hate the phrase “my bad”. Sorry again.

Okay, it’s obvious that the nerves have manifested themselves as grunchiness*. Tonight is another night of me reading my personal, private, teenage diaries. This time I will take the audience on the journey of DD, the Boy on Whom I had a Crush for One Thousand, One Hundred and Seventy Nine Days. Most likely I won’t post these diary experiments here; to hear them, you’ll just have to come to LA or book me for your backyard barn show.

Also, the newest installment of Michael W. Dean’s podcast on which blab endlessly is up and online. MWD, DJ, and I discuss everything under the sun and crack up a lot. I’m surprised that people seem to enjoy the BeckyChat series; I guess it’s almost always fun to eavesdrop on others shooting the shit.

Podcasts, diaries, podcasts, diaries. Do I do anything else? Why yes, I:

  • Made pincushions
  • Bought tickets to see the Go-Gos
  • Completely neglected the YMCA
  • Went to San Francisco, again
  • Did some other stuff I am most definitely not sharing with you (yes you)

*Grunchiness: hybrid of grumpy, grouchy and grinchy, coined by the awesome Leepy Leepybo

And you know, of course, that when I condemn the noncommenters, I don’t mean you, you, you, or you.

    You asked for comments. You gets them. Since I have nothing substantial to say, I will L I N K T O my blog.

    Way to step up, former lurker and new friend Bosco! Biophysics REPRESENT!

    Yep, comments certainly add to the festivities.

    The point is to be getting your voice and creativity on in whatever forum you can. If it means migrating towards live forum stuff, then get yourself some SB gigs already for your pals up here! 🙂

    Okay, now back to avoiding work and feeling guilty about being SO way behind on my blog.

    That Michael Dean podcast was really fun!

  5. me on October 4, 2007 at 2:04 pm

    Yes! Yes!! This is excellent, keep going with the commenting! Regina, I think an SB gig might become a reality. I think it’s high time some good ole fashioned cringing came to the Central Coast. And Sam, thank you. Wait until episode three when I, bitten by the loquacious bug, go on and on about porn and strip clubs and feminism and.. zzzzzz

    Yeah, it gets lonely out here in the ol’ blogosphere (a word I hate to use) but there are readers here, lurking away, too lazy to post on their own blogs (www.fatbrain.ca). Keep writing!
