I had a surprise email email from Blogger overnight, reminding me I had a blog once. It was called Cheeseburger Gothic. Huh? I rashly followed the link and found the single entry I made on that site lo those many years ago. An emergency broadcast following the crash/death of… wait for it… Journalspace!
That sent a few memory shocks down the synapse network. Miss the Havsy v FKn SJS FkN MUppet cage fights.
I was lurking at the Blunt Instrument some time around then. Took me a good few months to muster up the courage to comment, if I remember rightly.
geez, a few years after but even a reference to children overboard.
And those old names of boylan, bondiboy, murph, flinthart. Makes me wonder how long i've been lurking around here.
Imagine the naivety of someone, not me, saying this before Twitter existed..."That Wordpress is just too fucking huge for my liking....and licking. I'll wear my poor fricken tongue out yelling at ev'ryone. Just TOO MANY."
Is the Mini-Burger wordpress blog dead, or just lies dreaming?
So funny. But yet I feel so old. 2006 was a really long time ago, these days.
It even has Spam comments!
This reminded me of the old AOL chat rooms yrs ago. Logging on with the old modem , checking out the rooms . Debate politics was all the rage and actually gave a glimpse into the future and how toxic social media would become later. The arguments got personal and nasty, personal info given out etc. seems mild now. Unfortunately
Ah the great crash of JSpace, bit of a shock at the time. 'There seems to be some movement at the JS station. It may not be completely dead.'.....bold prediction at the time JB! Oh well, a bit of evolution never hurt nobody.
