Imagine this blogger sitting in front of a CRT that will certainly soon be replaced by an LCD that is larger and more vivid, sitting here in a silk upholstered chair peckety pecking at the keyboard, and wondering about the ethics of all this.
Chris Locke, the Chief Blogging Officer, is my friend… he takes my calls. Now he’s tied up in some sick relationship with the US Army. I dunno…
I’m a pacifist, never mind the life style accoutrements like the rose pink Cadillac in the driveway and the basement room sparsely decorated with old Rolling Stone illustrations, a wing chair with stuffing coming from the seams, a little side table with an ashtray and a match blackened spoon.
I never said I was perfect, but trust me, I only take the gas guzzler to the track. Why am I blogging when I should be in bed? My temperature is down to normal today and I’m left with monstrous congestion and a sore throat and aching ribs from so much coughing.
Meanwhile I should be working on the Wisconsin Draft Counseling Network blog and instead I’m posting about how Uncle Sam reads Chris.
But I had the chance here to highlight some of the whacked out complexities of getting along in the world, so why not blog? I asked Chris for a free ride on HighBeam. Chris hooked me up. Now I’m telling you that you should go read him. You’re lucky actually. He’s only been CBOing it since November so what he has piled up there in the archives is something you can work you way through. This is the moderated Chris Locke, the business like CBO. For the non-worksafe stuff, the totally deranged and gonzoid over the top stuff, you have to go to the EGR blog. I’d recommend that you start with a few early issues of the ‘zine, Entropy Gradient Reversals, then read forward in the ‘blog from late 2023 to present. It’s a roller coaster and the graphics and design are worth flipping through the pages even if you’re an ADD case like me.
