An example of what I mean by Internet Satire
Here is an example of Internet Satire that I wish to expand upon and build an Online Comedy Empire (our sluggishly evolving New Reformed Insane Blog Media Network) out of.
I don't want to run it though. I will likely turn this monstrosity over to Christian aka Green Idea Sleeps Furiously, a guy who writes casual pieces in a very similar manner (mixing Dada with Catch-22) to how I write fiction, from MySpace.
From The Toque of Canada.
"Saying No to Sex While Computing" [opening excerpt]
I'm a little offended when I get asked the question: "have you ever said 'no' to sex while at your computer?"
The question is much more complex than simply weighing a geeky hobby against an opportunity to get laid.
There are several factors involved in the computer/sex decision-making process, presuming that you have the opportunity to say "no", because you have a living, breathing sex partner.
There are times when you'll say no, and you'll have a good reason. A damned good one...you hope.
Maybe I just had sex, and maybe I will again after I check my email. It is really fair when you just finished an hour (let's be generous) of heavy humping, then on the way back from the toilet you stopped for a moment to reply to a couple of messages, when your wife comes in to ask you if you want to "do it again"?
If I was sitting around doing nothing except playing Freecell, well of course I'm not going to say 'no' when the opportunity presents itself...or herself in this case. I'd rather be doing it doggy-style than playing Solitaire Vegas-Style.
But if I was participating in the utlimate online Texas Hold'em tournament with the promise of a big payoff at the final table, I might have to temporarily postpone that game of strip poker with my spouse.
