Here’s A Confusing Blog Post
Posted on 23. Jul, 2008 by The Gimcracker in Blogging
I got a pingback on my Katy Perry vs. Zooey Deschanel post from an indie music blog entitled Radio Exile. After reading the article, I was a little confused.
Why don’t you take a gander at the article and see for yourself? From what I’ve been able to gather the author is trying to refute the point that these two broads could be twins. If that is indeed the case, I figured he wouldn’t pit an almost identical picture of each woman next to each other. He did. I also expected him to give at least one shred of evidence supporting his hypothesis. He didn’t.
Why, I ask again, did he write this blog post? Is it just an excuse to express his stalker-esque love for the two broads? Why does he choose to refute my wonderful, light-hearted little nugget of a blog post?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy about the traffic it will bring me, and I’m honored that someone stumbled upon my article in Google (or whatever search engine he used). Plus, I love when people have different opinions than me – it makes for good discussions. I just think the content of the article is lacking a bit.
And who doesn’t like calling someone a “broad” every five years or so? It’s satisfying and holy. Broads.
Radio Exile, I’m sorry to say, but you are now labeled in the following category:
You aren’t allowed to write an article without any relevant points and then say in summary “I made concise points” and expect it to make your crooked logic straight. I’m not trying to be mean here, just be aware that if you mess with a pathetic bumbling monster of a disarrayed crappy blog like The Gimcrack Miscellany, it’s going to attempt a quiet, meaningless retaliation
Also, I noticed he wasn’t thrilled about The Dark Knight. I’m beginning to think maybe he just has a case of Alternative Complex. You know, the complex where you hate things that are trendy just because they’re trendy. It’s a guess – I could be way off.
One more time, in case you missed it:
* This is obviously all in fun. Check out Radio Exile, and if you like what they have to say drop them a line in the comments. Every blog likes moar comments!
Haha. You’re awesome.
Honestly, my whole post was meant in jest. I was in a funny mood and had a bunch of co-workers that were insisting the ladies in question were twins. To be an ass, I posted that piece in a dry, mocking fashion and was completely avoiding the larger topic, one that I brought up.
I never ACTUALLY say they WHY they don’t look alike. I just talk about other reasons they are different people.
Hehe, yeah I was bored at work and wanted an excuse to find a funny FAIL pic. Thanks for having a sense of humor
[...] They look totally identical, I was mocking myself and my usual tomfoolery. In fact, I hurt Brian at Gimcrack Miscellany with my “case of Alternative Complex. You know, the complex where you hate things that are [...]
Now do you believe me?
No, Jesse, I don’t believe you. There is a value in having a sense of humor and playing along with jokes. Seeing the back catalog of stuff I’ve done over four years, you would know:
1) Everything’s a joke to me.
2) F*ck anyone who can’t take a joke.
Brian here, I like this guy. He can take a joke.
I guess he read your rebuttal. He posted this on his site:
(Update: Because this is starting a bit of a backlash, I just want to put it out there that this was all in jest. They look totally identical, I was mocking myself and my usual tomfoolery. In fact, I hurt Brian at Gimcrack Miscellany with my “case of Alternative Complex. You know, the complex where you hate things that are trendy just because they’re trendy.” He should have just called me a jackass. That would have been more accurate.)
“Can’t we all just get along?”…NO
Also, I didn’t hate The Dark Knight, I was just far too dizzy from the crappy old IMAX screen they were projecting it on. We’re seeing it again this weekend.
What would the world be like without a little healthy dispute? If everyone in the world just got along, it would be a very boring world.
Yeah, I took your Twitter post about The Dark Knight and blew it out of proportion. Mah bad.
