I Wish I Could Use Photoshop
Just when you thought the blog scandal was over with when Pleasure Motors at Covered in Oil announced his retirement. I guess it's not, I have to comment once again. There are still bloggers commenting about the whole thing, and not just Canadian bloggers. What we have found is that even retards south of the boarder like to give their two cents on what is beginning to be old news. Just when I thought the article by Robin Brownlee did a pretty good job of explaining the Oilers side of the situation I come across this real gem of a post at ThePensBlog.
This piece of shit is loaded with hilarious irony and subtle tire pumping, covering everything from forgetting??? Brownlee's last name to a cute little picture of Kevin Lowe in some man on man action. (Steve Tambellini is our GM by the way, damn you wikianswers!!!) I have some insight on this verbal shit wagon that they posted. The funny part is these guys take shots at two professional media personalities in Robin Brownlee and Jason Gregor. Claiming that the facts on their blog are "researched to the best of our abilities." Damn you wikianswers you've failed me!!! They then go on to say "In the get-info-now world we live in, having an internet publication is vital." Life or death I guess? At least that's what they tell the hand full of advertisers located on the sides of their website. Paying rent at mom and dad's house gets expensive and I'll be damned if legitimate media is going to ruin that. You're writing a blog, you don't need any skill, education, or gramatical structure. (as you can plainly see here at jeanshorts and baggedmilk)
I'm not saying that blogging is not a great way to post and find information, but to say that print media is dying is presumptuous at best. I guess there will have to be some prerequisite for starting a blog if print media becomes dispersed like Crosby's playoff beard. I'm writing this from my living room, and unless MacT decides to open a chatroom for his post games I guess I'm fucked for getting some info. As far as print media being replaced by bloggers like me and the writing staff at thePensBlog, it's their wet dream. Nothing more than an idea conjured up by the writers aimed at their advertisers. More traffic = more money. I understand that, because we're living off welfare and pockets full of almonds that we stole from Safeway. (Click our Google Ad please, we're starving here)
I will ignore the obvious fact that thePensBlog staff spent some time and money on Uncle Visa searching for the best gay porn. (We can get you some free sites for a plug) Although, we're pretty liberal up here in Canada so if they ever decide to take that big step and marry the sweaty man they love I'm sure they can get the marriage license up here. I will also overlook the hilariously shitty merchandise they're whoring off. I guess little bro needed some extra credit for silkscreening in industrial arts class. Vital information so far right? I also won't comment on the rip on Jason Gregor either until they decide to post pictures of themselves on their website and let me compare their picture to Sloth from the Goonies. I am glad to know he found work though, times were tough through the 90s.
"Um yes Mr. MacTavish, baggedmilk here at jeanshorts and baggedmilk, just a quick comment about the power play..." Fuck that, he wouldn't give me a second look for an interview let alone grant me access to his players. You're a blogger with another mediocre job that bores you, that's why you do this, that's why you won't get up to date info and that's why we have print media. Journalists, be it print or radio, will be around forever while you and I continue to depend on people clicking ads on the side of the free blogs we started with Google. Just sit there and do what you do, try to decide which fruit feels more like a womans naynay.
To ThePensBlog just feel lucky that you have 13 Canadians and a handful of Russians giving you one of the best teams in the league to write about.
