Oui, J'aime blog!
In the beginning
There was darkness on the face of the deep
The links that keep it shinin'

L.A. BLOG PARTY: Well, since YOURS TRULY'S invitation got lost in the mail, we'll have to get our reports from various attendees. The always-reliable Tony Pierce has the pictures and a report. Layne has a few margarita-fueled words, Mickey Kaus, well, Kaus is talking about the House Immigration Reform Caucus and had five posts before noon. What, you guys couldn't pour a few more drinks down his throat? Hell, even former adult film gossip-monger Luke Ford has a report! Scott Rubush, Rand Simberg and Eugene Volokh got bupkus! Virginia Postrel, Emmanuelle Richard and Heather Havrilesky are silent as well, but I will cut them slack as they are much better looking than those other dirty yahoos. Welch is apparently either still asleep or Richard Riordan has already hired him to run Los Angeles.
VIVE LA FRANCE! Connect(i)cut says this is an "almost French-speaking Weblog at this moment." So bienvenue to my French friends! Well, except the humorless ticket wench at Gare Montparnasse who assured us that the TGV would not run late and that a layover of 40 minutes at Irún was plenty of time to make sure we caught the train to Madrid. May she always be routed through O'Hare!Thursday, April 18, 2002
MAIS WHEEEEE! Emmanuelle says: "Tony me soupçonnait d'être derrière le mystérieux blog a.beam, mais non, je n'y suis pour rien (et je donnerai cher pour savoir de qui il s'agit.)" Or, for you cretinous jackasses who don't speak the romantic language of Pétain, Hinault and Pierre-Henri Bunel, that means: "Tony took my soupcan and kicked the ass of the mysterious blog a.beam, but no, I am stuck in the pouring rain (and I don't share or save, so quit your ill agitation!)." Ah, the French! So poetic!Wednesday, April 17, 2002
SEND IN THE CLONES: The Sarge says he's "run out of shit to say" and is taking a break to sit in the sun and move. Ha! So he would have you believe! The truth is out there! And it knows he's already in line for the new Star Wars flick!
WISE BUY: No bids yet in the auction of Tony Pierce's wisdom tooth (Picture may be unsuitable for dinnertime viewing). C'mon, people!
INSERT DICK JOKE HERE: Yeesh. A few more circumcision posts, and Andrew Sullivan will officially be the right-wing Dan Savage!Tuesday, April 16, 2002
SCREED ON PAPER: Clay Waters says Lileks' "Notes from the Olive Garden" is in the new dead-tree version of the American Spectator.Monday, April 15, 2002
TOO MUCH TIME WITH GOOGLE: Here's an update on where some of our favorite personalities rank in the First Name Ego Google Derby:
MUCH ADO ABOUT BLOGGING: Great Shakespeare's ghost! Sullivan is even showing up in Wired now! Another publication Paul Krugman will have to put on his "too vile to read" list!
FUNNIEST MICHAEL MOORE CHEAP-SHOT OF THE WEEK: And it's only Monday! Tim Blair says Michael Moore "puts the 'hippo' in 'hypocrite'!"
DOES THIS MEAN KEN LAYNE HAS TO GET UP BEFORE NOON? Are Welch and Layne getting a real job?Sunday, April 14, 2002
