I was reading random twitter posts one day and came across someone writing a political tweet, mentioning Democrats needing to be tarred and feathered (and joking that Obama was already tarred...). The tweet rubbed me the wrong way, and linked to a website.
|can't... resist.. correcting grammar...|
(go here if you want to see the post, the comment, and the rest)
It turns out the dude I insulted is not only a humorist (and there were dollops of sarcasm dripping from the post), but the guy is pretty famous. And good at what he does.
I start reading other bits and pieces from his site, and realize he blasts both sides fairly well. He's a really good cartoonist too. Overall, I like the site, since I dislike both parties on an almost-equal level.
...but I forgot about the hand grenade I had written, and moved on with my day.
|Did I just piss off a celebrity?|
Oh, but it gets better.
He blasts me, he blasts my blog, and now he's following me on twitter. And has paid for adspace to promote his site on my blog...
So what do I do? I ended up liking his site and his style, only to piss him off...
I ended up typing an apology email, and telling him I'd actually advertise his site instead of refunding his money. It's mainly because it's a good site and he's a good humorist, but also to eat a little crow on my end. I shouldn't have fired a shot across a stranger's bow like that.
|Holy fuck, what have I done?|
Lady Estrogen has a great thing going on with Jeremy London, and Q has Taylor Corley (sorry Jeremy, Taylor's hotter than you, so I'm more jealous of Q). Bloggers with celebrity followers seems to be the chic thing, so I want a celebrity of my own.
...and I doubt Anne Hathaway is going to happen for me, so I should just take a shot and be glad anyone remotely famous would like a goob like me.
So, Will Roberts, if you're still paying attention, your ad is up. Your site is awesome. And I'm sorry. Feel free to stick around and stalk me, if you like what you see...
