Shattered Dreams

Why do I bother blogging? What’s the point? How can I ever hope to live up to a line like this:

Come to think of it, that is pretty amazing. Instead of making jokes about how Keith Richards has no blood left in his body, or how Mick Jagger probably has Viagra injected directly into his veins, or how Ron Wood looks like one of those bodies that’s dug up by Dr. Michael Baden on HBO’s “Autopsy” show, shouldn’t we be admiring the fact that the Stones are still plugging away, when any of them could have fathered Julio Franco?
(On second thought … nahhhhhhhh.)


That was the great Bill Simmons writing on the fly while watching the Super Bowl. Do you know how long it took me to come up with, “…to watch four dried up old prunes prance their shriveled hides around the stage like escapees from a senior citizen rehab clinic.”?

Some have it, some don’t. Darn you Bill Simmons! Darn you to heck!

    I just found out that you have the ability to censor and filter my comments to your blog. Communist.Let me just state for the record how I feel about that. YOU LOW DOWN*filtered by Ando* Anyway I just needed to get that off my chest. -Peter

    I refrain from commenting on Blogs, because I’m not sure if there is a point.

    But today I’m bored and I’m here.

    Andy you need to not quote others in your blog, it makes us all see your short comings as a person and realize we don’t want to be your friend. I believe I speak for everyone when I say,” I used to like and respect you, but now that I see how insignificant you are I’ve decided not to call you or associate with you anymore.”

    You’re newest ex friend – Peter

    Peter, Peter, Peter…

    Blog commenting is essential to the health of the blogosphere. Not only are you boosting the confidence and self-esteem of the blogger, even with a negative comment, but you are further empowering them to use the word blogoshere.

    The mere fact that you took the time to comment, not once but twice, had the simultaneous effect of lifting my confidence to near record heights and then crushing any and all hopes I had for life long happiness spent with friends by pointing out, not only my literary shortcomings but personal inadequacies as well, thereby leaving me in the very spot where I began, self-esteem-wise. So, I guess you’re right. What’s the point?

    As for the censorship comment, LONG LIVE THE ILLUSTRIOUS LEADER OF THE MOTHERLAND!!!

    Speaking of the motherland. Communism is cool for card games. http://www.flyingbuffalo.com/nucwar.htm. We need find someone fool enough to buy this game online (I for one don’t have a visa with a balance high enough to feel comfortable buying anything from these people over the Internet) But I have a co-worker who tells me the game is a blast. I would love to get together and slam down the WMD card to my friends without the threat of nuclear winter. .. Anyway…yea communism.. Eh comrade?
