Open Thread

(OR: "What would you blog about if you were an A-list blogger?")

Oh, I don't know. Maybe "FRIST!"

He he he he. I just can't get enough of my crazy humor!

Seriously Johnny. I see that there aren't too many ads on the site right now, so maybe it's time to whip up some new T-Shirts or something. Until the ads pick up, I'll be increasing my daily monetary contributions. I can't have you starving to death. You're my only source of hard news! What would I do without you?

I'd blog about other A-Listers all. the. time. What else is there?

If I were an A-List blogger like you Johnny, I'd get busy writing about the YearlyKos Convention you haven't attended yet. Be sure to mention how fabulous everyone thought you looked in your tux, how inspirational your keynote speech was to the political candidates in attendance and how the political mavens wept tears of joy over your brilliant campaign strategies. There's less than two weeks to go. Remember, this isn't about Kos and all the other B-List bloggers who will attend. This is all about you! Make a difference! Write that article, starting now!

Maybe it's time to beat up on the Mainstream Media again. I'll bet Chris Matthews has said something to offend you this week, right Johnny? Nothing like a good boycott to get those donations flowing in. And that was really successful activism of you, Johnny! I haven't watched that blasphemous show since you, my glorious leader, told me to stop watching.

Oh, I hear that Nancy Pelosi only recently discovered the existence of "curly fries" and that she's never had a face-lift. Hmmm, can we believe her? Maybe we could beat up on her and get her out of the leadership because she's so out of touch. You know, we can't have a GIRL running things.

Who told you that Johnny A-List wasn't invited to host a panel about A-List blogging and activism? It's all lies! Maybe we should have a "Yearly Aravosis" convention. Just don't do it in Las Vegas. People might gamble away all their money and not be able to fill the collection plate.

The "Yearly Aravosis" convention is an excellent suggestion, anonymous. Jimmy Buffett has his parrot-heads. We'd need something like that... of course, we already have our T-Shirts. Our media mascots, Anderson Cooper and Maureen Dowd will be appearing on the front of those. Free-Willy or Shamu will be prominently displayed on the back.

Too funny, someone put the link to this blog in the comments section at Americablog, but they were immediately removed. Johnnie's henchmen (no henchgirls allowed) were at work.

What would I post about? Let me take a look at what Atrios has pre-stolen today...

Max Cleland, the new SecTreas and flat wages. That's what I would be posting on.

you need to have more open threads, duh.

maybe some odd sentence to start them off. like "bring me your tired your huddeled your open threads".

or "thready heartbeat!"

and more links. LINKS links LINKSSSSess. With strange titles at the top of each grouping of sites like "In the No." or "Cooking with Thermal Nucular Energies"

and they should be unrelated enough that the viewers will never ever figure out why you put them there. Esoteric, you say to anyone who asks. If you don't know where you are, you don't belong there.

stay out, clubhouse MEMBERS only.

It IS a zero sum game, after all.

Johnny, you delightful creature you, might a humble reader suggest that you include more of your exquisite balladry. You truly transformed my life with "If There Were No Aravosisblog". I literally emptied my bank account into your exhalted coffers after a long night of sobbing with gratitude that I live on the same planet as such a lyric god.

Please, please continue to shine your dactylic light upon a lowly and craven creature such as myself...a mere girl.

No one has been banned from this thread. I'm losing faith in your armchair activism.

I was banned. I banned myself. I was disgusted by my belief system and decided I needed to be punished. So I came here, didn't post, and made sure I rebooted my modem to distance myself from that post I didn't make.

Sure, you could add 50 new t-shirt designs, but could you please make sure to use MS Comics Sans as the font? KTHNX.

Now Johnny A-list brilliantly touched on this but I felt it was necessary to bring it up again. This is an A-list blog, okay? Let me add that it's better to be a bit player in an A-list blog than it is to run your own damn b-list site.

How about some Orca Blogging since it's Hump Day? It's also the last day of the month so that makes today super duper special.

Look how they are spinning it at Americablog:

" Anonymous, the 'john blog' is a spoof by the right wing trolls! They created it right after the 'big girl' debacle.

ROFL! Kay obviously needs to get out more. Or is this how OrchidBoy is spinning this? As if wingnuts were clever enough to parody anything. Which is precisely why there's so much material there amidst the orchids to work with.
