farewell to blogging post

A "farewell to blogging" post at A David Gray Flog (Fan Blog).

http://zafuzoul.blogspot.com/2006/03/go-ahead.html

The "go ahead and laugh" title seems to be tilted out away from the central meaning implied, by the bizarre deleting of the original post, replaced by a long reverie of Crete.

From the intrusive "But since malfouka's asked,...(etc.)" this post slogs in an alienated obliteration, so profound and recurrent, as you click each "previous posts" pseudo-links in the list, they all navigate to the same content.

This blog was largely a failure.

I am putting it out of its misery.

See you around, doggie daddies.


But since malfouka's asked, I am posting this here writing for her.


There's a vapor-filled street and I am standing under the town's only street lamp. It's the night before Greek Orthodox Christmas in Crete. People are calling out "Christos etekhthi." Others answer "Alithos etekhthi." I call it a night and head to the house, up to the loft, where I'm spending the night.

There is also an example of a properly abandoned blog: Cluetrain Manifesto.
