  Blog Noir. An interplay of cultural references, snark, the occasional smutty joke, Dadaism, Mamaism, and a genuine outrage at the horrors of The Situation.

Double Jeopardy!

This post has become our weekly chance to honor commenting at it's finest and acknowledge the kind people who further the IMFB,S! cause by sending traffic our way. This week we have been given a unique opportunity to kill both zombies with one bullet, so to speak.

In the past, I have shown my penchant for slavery to popular demand in the awarding of this honor, and this week will once again defer to the keen judgment of our esteemed commentators. Let's listen in on what they had to say the past week:

This, from mistah charley, ph.d., is not the I Miss Fafblog Comment of the Week, Spot!:
My thanks to the June Taylor Dancers for bringing the Fafblog comments back, at least for now (though we should always remember that, as 'Cat Stevens' sang, "we're only dancing on this earth for a short while")

I have the honor of having the last Fafblog comment posted - as I write, at least - and in a bold and only apparently egotistical stroke of action, I would like to pro-actively nominate it as this week's Comment of the Week* (although admittedly it is not AT imissfafblogspot - but it is ABOUT imissfafblogspot) - it says, in part,

New pictures, stories, and fun at!
*If I am not for myself, who will be?

If I am for myself only, instead of promoting the good of the greater whole of I Miss Fafblog, Spot!, what am I?

If not now, when? Maybe next week?
Nor is this--- from bodiciah t rentlord III, who is always quick to chuck 'convention' to the dogs ---the I Miss Fafblog Comment of the Week, Spot!:
I second mistah charley's nomination, but only in the glory of it's complete original:

New pictures, stories, and fun at! Free!! Free!!!

[some assembly required]


I think the final three words the capture the crux of I Miss Fafblog, Spot. While the ingenious addition of an almost certainly poetically licensed, aesthetically awe inspiring, single dropped period following four blank lines is a beautiful example of minimalist wit.

Note: I do realize that the new vogue thing the kids are all doing nowadays is adding all the extra space at the bottom of their comments. That plays, really, pretty well inside the Haloscan thingy. However, in formatting blogger posts any extra space at all translates into miles and miles of scrolling on the published screen, which could mean carpal tunnel for our scroll wheel mouse using readership. We do not want that! [Carriage returns have been omitted where artistic intent is not compromised.]

While this is not exactly the I Miss Fafblog Comment of the Week, Spot! we might accurately name it, just this once, the I Miss Fafblog Fafblog! Comment of the Week, Spot! So without waiting any longer, here is mistah charley, ph.d. from the comments at the real Fafblog!:
New pictures, stories, and fun at! Free!! Free!!!

[some assembly required]

"Some assembly required," indeed. This line has great potential as a possible 'tag line' in lieu of "not a sanctioned source for Fafblog, Spot!" (Of course, you just can't be too careful these days... so maybe not.) The additional period as in-joke, but not one of those alienating in-jokes, is just plain heartwarming.

Anyway, do you see what I meant about the zombies? It is now a very simple thing to also thank mistah charley, ph.d. for sending traffic our way this week from [see above.] Thanks also to oldephartteintraining who includes us in his blogroll, and whose sage advice, "You might want to claim your blog on Technorati," has been heeded... as evidenced by our new shiny Technorati thingamabob in the right-hand column. Click on it to see stuff.

WE'RE NUMBER 361,014! WE'RE NUMBER 361,014!! WE'RE NUMBER 361,014!!! Join in the chant!

Enough of that. Well played, mistah charley, ph.d.!

Missing Fafblog picture of the week

Halcylon days.


"What did your mother and I tell you about watching the commercials?"

"That if they need commercials to sell it, it isn't worth buying."

"That's right kids, they're either selling you a price that's too high, or a need that isn't necessary, or a superiority that is superfluous."

Sumatran Rhino
Missing Fafblog! can be like the solitary life of the Sumatran rhinoceros. I Miss Fafblog, Spot!? A saltlick around which to congregate.
