...a perverted irish proverb for you.

How about:

Blogs alone moves the wheels of history. - Benito Mussolini

The future can be anything we want it to be, providing we have the faith and that we realize that peace, no less than war, required "blogs and sweat and tears.". - Charles F. Kettering

Focus:
What do you think of blogs and blog culture in general? Do you have one? Is it any good?

Also, if hypothetically if Duckula and I were to create a blog, what do you think it should be about? What content would you like to see, and what would keep you reading?

I have a blog (see signature). It's fantastic :icon_bigg I mainly talk about all the odd stuff that happens over here, and use it as a way to keep people I don't talk to every day up to date about what I'm getting up to (think uni friends).

I like blogs, but only if they are used for good, not evil. i.e. slating your "friends" rather than confronting them for real? Evil.

Your blog should be about... random studies you find, and your take on the conclusions. I'd love to know what Mad Duck and Jet Lee think of new findings, random statistics and the like. I'm sure that could be turned into something mildly entertaining.

But that would mean I'd have to read and stuff.

Nah, just listen to the news. "One in three women bladiebladiebla." Subject!

Hey, you're asking me to read your stuff... might as well put in some effort yourself :)

I'm not familiar with bladiebladiebla.
Is it private women stuff?

Leonie

Totally. Bladiebladiebla ranges from PMS to gynaecologist visits, from shaving your armpits to the ultimate flirt tips, from how to hide your granny knickers from boyfriends to finding the right bra model for you, from tampon tests to foundation application tools. You'd be horrified.

Maybe I should write your blog.

What makes you think I'm not qualified to write about the things above?

I told you it wasn't a bad subject! :icon_lol:

Please proceed, sir.

I'd be interested in hearing Cliff's and Sir Duckula's comments on that subject

I have a scary feeling their first blog post will be titled "Why Leonie's Suggestions Suck."

The best bra model for me is Josie Maran.

Don't eat spicy food before going to your OBGYN

Hide your ugly underwear by bouncing around topless

...what do you think?

I used to have a blog where I'd spill my emotions. Then after a year, I reread all that I wrote and realized how fucking embarrassing and pathetic I was.

I'd like to read an emo blog.

acliff

I don't believe that myself and duckula could write an emo blog. If we did, we would not be able to live with ourselves and jump in front of a train in shame. You would read about our emotional decline in the blog.

I could write an emo blog, I have plenty of emotions. Like hatred, anger, apathy and biscuits.

I feel biscuity some days.

You should write a blog about the history of women. It'd make me laugh at your point of view.

acliff

I might write something about how women always give bad suggestions. That would be a hoot.

Mandy
21-09-2006, 07:42 AM
And I'll write one about how men can't ever think of anything on their own.

Would you like me to write a list showing everyone how you are so totally totally wrong?

It involves things like fire, the wheel, telephones, electricity, the light bulb, the internet, google, the mobile phone, flight, central heating, air conditioning, and the nice swivel chair that I'm sitting on right now. Must I go on?

Leonie

Looking forward to your factual evidence, sir. Would make for an interesting read. It would also make Germaine Greer cry. Hurray.

Yes, but unlike women, men can't make something out of nothing.

Except burps and farts.

Back to the point, theres thoughts of something similar to 'ask duckula' where one can post a message or email which shall be responded to and posted on the blog.

Hey Ducks, the blog is created, get a wordpress account (I think you already have one?)

acliff

And it is live.

Add it to your favourites, read it every day.
It will make you laugh, cry and shudder with excitement.

Suggestions, suggested links would be most helpful.
Comments on the website please.

Well, normally when I make banners for people, they credit me. That's what I mean.

Thanks to Peter Faulk for having such a distinctive face, and for supplying countless hours of entertainment. Even more thanks to Mandy for the graphic, saving me countless hours dusting off photoshop.

Of course he used the English spelling of Peter Falk's name, you know, with an extra "u"... :kidding: Peter Falk's imdb entry (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000393/)

Sorry this didn't post last night, but the Internet "just went 'away'."
