There's nothing more useless than a blog that doesn't get updated for days. My biggest pet peeve. Nothing more infuritating than checking a site and seeing nothing new. For days.
Next, comes the apologetic post consisting of only an excuse of why there haven't been posts. Puh-leeze, like anyone gives a shit about how busy you are, how you were just mugged or that your great aunt passed away. Don't let your life get in the way of your blog. Just admit that you're fucking lazy.
When I was a kid, the comment that came up the most in my report cards: "Rachel is an intelligent and talented student but is not working up to her potential."
Lazy. That's right. I still got As...but for some reason I was deemed lazy. They could just tell.
The only thing worse than lazy on your report card are all those "tardy" marks. Tardy, tardy, tardy...because that word is sooooo weird.
But really, the only thing worse than waiting for blogs to post something...is waiting and waiting for these promised publications that are supposed to come out, supposed to be out right NOW, but they never come. Some we've been waiting on for months, even years. We wait by the door, with our noses pressed to the glass...here comes the UPS guy, Fed Ex...nothing.
Here's just a tiny bit of the list that we've been waiting on:
The Dr. Ikkaku Ochi Collection
Chris Ware (by Raeburn)
Creatures Of The Night
Horny Biker Sluts, the Collection
Acme Novelty Library 16
The Very Breast of Russ Meyers
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
How does this happen? Oh, a hundred reasons...lazy artists, constipated writers, alcoholism, broke publishers, agoraphobia, an obsession with Soul Calibur II...
All we can do about all this, is wait and hope. And read something else.
