marc browns got me listening to crunk

because we have a deal with TVT records and you know me, i always do what the boss tells me to do, so here i be.

the Bloggies is holding their nominations for all the things that they do. last year if you recall, i won “best article or post about Blogging” which earned me a bunch of gifts that i never claimed and some paypal $$$ which was nice and noteriety but the best was it was announced in front of some of my friends at sxsw and that was cool.

but now because people are axing their readers to nominate them for things, people are looking back at the winners of last year. which means people are rediscovering the post that i wrote that won “how to blog“.

and even though that post is close to two years old now, when people read that thing they either quote a line or two that speaks to them or they’ll just copy the whole damn thing into their blog after saying “this is brilliant” or “i dont believe in all of this but its great.”

but one thing they forget to include most of the time is the part where i say that if youre going to steal from anyone you should steal from raymi cuz shes perfect.

that part is so true i wonder why people leave it out.

last year the busblog wasnt good enough to win any awards probably and thats fine with me. im not a huge fan of awards because it makes more people “losers” than winners.

blogging is such a personal, experimental, exhibitionistic whisper that people shouldnt ever feel bad for contributing to this social dialogue. which is why i dont like a-lists or b-lists either.

with that said, someone emailed me to tell me two things: that theyve dissolved the “best article or post about blogging” which means that my award is rare now, or something

but theyve added “Best Tagline of a Weblog

and this person said, tony, is there a better tagline in the whole blogosphere better than “nothing in here is true”?

of course not.

but im too proud to ask you, my readers, to nominate me for that award.

proud isnt the word. i dont know what the word is, really.

right now im not proud of anything. im tired. i have a long night ahead of me because my buddy Chris wants to take me to the Lakers Pistons game and if we get out early i want to go to Spaceland to see Rocket play (pictured, left, with cc deville).

and then i have to help the old lady with her lock. seems she doesnt know where to hide her key outside her door.

did i tell you i had to break into her house and lift her up because she had fallen out of her bed and couldnt lift herself up.

did i tell you that i saw old lady bush. and there was poop in the cat cage and she wanted me to put the cat in there and i said no.

did i tell you that she called me like ten times this weekend but fortunately i was not at home. fortunate for me because i was looking at young lady bush but sad for her because how fucked up must it be when you cant even lift yourself up into your own bed?

so because we live near one of the big sceintologey churches, and because at 92 years old the lady likes them and has read some of their books, and agrees with some of it, i said, why dont you call them up, im sure they wouldnt mind coming over in the middle of the night since theyre right up the street and awake at all hours.

and she said, no no, i want to have my life in order before i talk to them, also they charge for their courses.

and i said theyre a church, they shouldnt charge, and she said, yes but they do.

and i said perhaps they’ll give a few courses free if youre over 90 and live down the block.

and she sighed. and i said seems to me that they approach people all day who dont want to talk to them, seems to me that theyd love to talk to someone who does want to talk to them.

and she said good point.

but i dont think she called them up.

somebodys dad objected to one of my posts yesterday

the one about the twenty year old who had relations with me.

heres the deal with the busblog. i cant bother with your issues. i cant bother with your hangups or your hypocracy. i cant bother with your jealousies or the fact that you sired daughters and are in conflict that theyre gonna give it up.

trust me, every time i write something even halfway sexy someone has to say something, and sometimes that person is my mother, and you know what i tell my mother

sorry ma, i cant bother with your issues. the busblogs gotta roll on.

at the root of the dad objection was probably the fact that i was with such a young girl. who knows maybe i was the same age as this dude. maybe i was a little younger. heaven forbid i am older, but that could be the case too with kids having kids and all.

but if the busblog stands for one thing its the end of agism. just because two people are relatively the same age doesnt mean shit other than they grew up watching the same cartoons.

still over half of marriages end up in divorce so maybe people need to revist relationships and long term commitments.

because britney and kevin are pretty much the same age, does that mean that hes gonna be a good husband to her? or even a good boyfriend?

at 113 years old, trust me, i think i could be a better boyfriend to her. but instead of people saying lets look at all the things tony is, they would say lets look at the only thing that tony isnt: her age.

so fuck that, and fuck your issues. this is the busblog where nothing is true anyways. except the truth. and the truth is i havent made out with a girl my age in a very very long time. not since junior college.

do i have any problems with women my age? no. but i dont have problems with young women either, and i find it fascinating that so many other people do.

i also find it fascinating that because the dad remained anonymous in his negative comment, he could be charged with a federal crime

who knew the President didn’t like negative anonymous commentors as much as i do?

…although, it’s my bet that the new law will be struck down as clearly unconsitutional within a month – what is it about the Repubs and their issues with freedom of speech?

just another example of the elderly always wanting to control everything.
