Ceci n’est pas une affiche des pare-chocs

You’ve seen the bumper stickers, I’m sure: “I only listen to what the voices in my head tell me to do”? The bloggy e-version is “I only listen to what the emails tell me to do”: It’s a weird world. Best not ask. B- happy! day

So I just edited (8-something a.m., PST, way too early in the morning) the above entry to include a link to Doc Searle’s blog. It’s his birthday. First I felt like an idiot, putting that cake on my blog in the first place, since I don’t know Doc Searle at all, and now I feel like a churl for not writing a friendlier, less ironic caption, since D.S. mentions my der Raser suggestion as an alternative to Wutjunge on his blog. It is a strange world in blogland, and I think Plato Shrimp is really on to something with that name. Just what the hell is in the trunk of the car remains, of course, a mystery. Happy birthday Doc Searle.

Yes, we can get carried away in the lives of strangers. For better or for worse. Are these our intelligensia soap operas?

Well, I don’t know about intelligentsia as such. But it’s something having to do with a peculiar merging of “culture” and “market.” And if you know where the bridal registry to that particular little shindig is, you know something I don’t.
