I’d just like to publicly thank Tony for being a big bastard about Blog-A-Thon while my personal bastardness has been replaced by this sing-a-long nonsense. I’m ususally very skeptical about memes dressed up as events, but i think you need to ditch the cynic-tinged glasses for a moment to take a look at what’s really happening here. First of all, FryKitty did this last year and garnered only a little attention, yet decided to do it again because she thought it was a good cause. Secondly, some people took it upon themselves to pick a cause that’s very close to their own lives and hearts rather than something trendy or catchy. And, finally, you can’t very well call $17k+ in donations by a bunch of internet strangers a play for hits; i sponsored my friends and the people supporting dear causes, and not some of the big names who i could have been mooching hits off of for the entirety of this past month by sponsoring them. And, i’m not even touching the irony of some of the names you used as examples of your anti-whores. Plus, you seem to be disregarding the fun and adventure this had brought out in some blogs; do you honestly think i would have taken the time to seriously record any of these songs if it wasn’t for the ‘thon and my sponsors to motivate me? So, Tony, please have a heart. Or, at least have one the next time i go on a bitterness rampage to keep me in check. After all, the two of us bitter at the same time could ruin the mood of the entire server.
