The Revenge Of The Son Of The Bride Of The House Of The Return Of Ask Standing On The Shoulders Of Giant Midgets, Electric Boogaloo Takes Manhattan

>> Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Honestly. I just cannot think of a damned thing to blog about this week. It's hot outside, my feet hurt, the biggest thing going in American politics right now is Anthony Weiner's dong, I haven't seen a movie in forever, don't have any original insights into anything I've been listening to or reading lately, don't have time for games, I've been suffering terrifying writer's block that's produced 1,000 words of fiction in the past five days that I'm now on the verge of deleting, arrrrrrghuh--what in nine hells is a poor blogger to do?

He's going to resurrect a feature that's been reliable in the past for generating blog fodder. That's right, kiddies, it's The Revenge Of The Son Of The Bride Of The House Of The Return Of Ask Standing On The Shoulders Of Giant Midgets, Electric Boogaloo Takes Manhattan.

So, how's-about's-it? Anyone have any questions you're dying to ask me? Ask below in the comments thread of this post this week, and I'll try to answer or at least provide an amusing response in a near-future blog post. And if you don't have any questions... well, if you don't have any questions, I may be pretty fucked. Sorry.

So, ask me.

Please. I'm begging.

What are your thoughts on the story I link to below? Is the city being reasonable, or are we getting more and more Dickensian as time moves forward?

Political Question: If you had no choice but to choose from a republican or conservative for president, who would you choose, and why?

Nathan Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 2:04:00 PM EDT  

I'll just pass on the question that was asked of me...mere moments ago.

What the hell is wrong with you?

Under what circumstances would you vote for Sarah Palin for President?

:D

Why did I suddenly get thirty visits from your page alone today to my blog? Were you hitting refresh repeatedly?

Carol Elaine Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 11:37:00 PM EDT  

Nathan, were you talking to Janiece again? Or was it Anon GF?

Eric, why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?

As a scum-sucking lawyer do you believe it is your job to get all of your clients acquitted, or do you try to see that justice is done?

If you could move anywhere (that actually exists!), where would it be and why?

Phiala Thursday, June 9, 2011 at 2:06:00 PM EDT  

Here's another actual one, since I'm not sure I actually want to know what the hell is wrong with you, and certainly not with Nathan.

Your thoughts on the police search of the house with the anonymous tip of many bodies, the out-of-control news coverage, and the revelation that the tip came from a psychic?

Cursivearts took my question!!! Blogger stats showed 25 visits from your blog yesterday (Wednesday), and I was so flattered ::bats eyelashes seductively as only a 56 year-old woman with grey hair can::, but Sitemeter was tracking a little more sanely and quickly burst my egobubble by showing that there was no traffic from your blog that day. I'd say Blogger still has a glitch or two or 7,042 going on.

Why am I so immature?

Marvel comics is on its way to having a big movie franchise to tie in its other movie franchises when The Avengers comes out. Why do you think DC isn't doing the same with a Justice League movie?

What's your position of fan films of comic books etc. that are done well (e.g. Batman Dead End)? Should those people be given a shot at making a movie for reals?

Eric Thursday, June 9, 2011 at 5:22:00 PM EDT  

Jessica and Mrs. B: well, damn, I was hoping all those hits at CA meant that someone here was heading over and buying lots of awesome stuff from Jess. Instead, it apparently means there's some kind of issue with Blogger--quelle surprise.

I'd apologize if I had anything to do with it. An expression of sympathies, then?

David Thursday, June 9, 2011 at 11:05:00 PM EDT  

I think I'm going to continue to believe that all that traffic from your site to my blog really happened, no matter what reality says. Can't I have my own faith-based reality too? They're popular now, so I hear.

My question: Do you relax by doing something else or by doing nothing.

Alternately: What would you do if I sang out of tune?

SOTSOGM - Some comments please on yesterday's revelation that Newt's entire top-tier staff abandoned his campaign. I know that just made your lil' heart quicken a couple beats.

The shots from all the local stations lurking in his building's parking lot waiting for someone to show up at the now-vacated office were priceless!

Otherwise... let me know if you'd stand up and walk out on me...

Seth Friday, June 10, 2011 at 5:02:00 PM EDT  

Okay, I finally thought of a question. I'm going to assume you've heard something about the collapse of the legal job market, the explosion in the price of law school tuition, and the scammy tactics many law schools are using to inflate their post-grad employment rates. Given all that, if you were a young person contemplating law school today, do you think you would still do it?

(I am about to start at UCLA Law. I have some money from the GI Bill, so I'm not facing quite the terrifying debt load many of my classmates will be, but still....)

Shakespeare says, "Men have died and worms have eaten them, but not for love."

First, was it really Shakespeare? Second, is it true? And third, does the same apply to women?
