First Period: International Affairs
Alright Readership, here we go. I was informed by 1/5 of youthat I need to get back to writing about snowboards or bikes or at least something funny, or I am going to lose my readers. The other four of them.
The fact of the matter is this has been a pretty crapchunk season for snowboarding. I’ve been bizzed, not getting out as much as I want and the weather has been garbage barge. Luckily I will be sneaking out to Whistler to catch “The Show” portion of the Telus Festival. And since I’m going solo, if anyone wants to meet up and toss down a couple turns or beers let me know. I need friends.
Second Period: History
Incase you missed that, I’m taking this show international. And yet I still get no high fives on the local. Is cool though. This thing never set out to be a Milwaukee blog. The origins of this entire rag was to blast shit about a core group of guys who all lived on the same wing in our dorm.
Somehow it got out of hand, people decided to read it and it’s given me an excuse to have more fun. It also gave me an excuse to have some stickers made. In fact it’s almost like I’ve got a street team. Check out this action from the Socal track racer man.
Shit gets raced. I’m like the USofA with the army racecar, except I’m still backing women’s reproductive rights. HUZZAH!
3rd Period: Social Studies
As I was saying, I’m not really looking to be some Milwaukee blogger. But this is some serious hackory: Check out the Shepard Express (print publication, old media) Best of Milwaukee Web Awards.
Scroll through the list and take note of the serious lack of Rumorator nods. I’m like Marty Scorsese, before The Departed, over here. I guess if I was going to knock off something Japanese for the cred at home, now would be the time.
And dig on this one:
Really I shouldn’t be so offended. Because if you look at the options for best art blog The first option is Art City, which is pretty much in direct competition to the Shepard Express. For real, the Shep Ex is suppose to be our alterative weekly, loaded with stuff to put you in the know. And who do they nominate for best Art Blog in the city? Not themselves. This would be like el rumorator just talking about how rad Shayboarder is. Fucking genius work.
4th Period: Government
At the risk of losing all my readers, you gotta see this:
It’s from Mr. PhilGarlic’s FlickrStream
It’s also worth checking out this one, from Dane 101.
That’s a lot of pissed off people, Scotty. Beware.
