Gtalk convo – A strange experiment: Blogging

me: My blog (that I share with Jake but he hasn’t ever posted to) got a link from a celebrity gossip blog today.

Megan: … what?

me: http://madblogz.com/showbiz/peter-jackson-perturbs-blogger/

Megan: is it because of your name?

me: Nope.

I haven’t written out my full name on there before

Megan: lol, awesome

me: My first link! Yay.

Megan: I’m like a proud parent.

except … you know … ew

me: All I did was react to something that someone else reacted to. The web is a silly place

his is proving to be an interesting experiment. I have never been the creator in this scenario, only the consumer (Tribtown doesn’t count)

Now I find that whenever I have an opinion, I want to write it out so people can look and say, “Who cares?”

But they’ll still look.

Peter Jackson perturbs blogger

And that blogger is me.

I just saw this tweet from Felicia Day:

“@NikkiFinke: RT @DeadlineNY: URGENT: Peter Jackson Negotiating To Direct ‘The Hobbit’ Films http://bit.ly/cnSzcQ”ooooo!

What the hell? A few years ago, Jackson wanted nothing to do with directing another Tolkein-inspired movie, and now he’s negotiating?

I have no doubt that, if this does come through, it will be full of excellence. The problem is that my spider-sense is tingling hard. It feels like Hollywood Bullshittery, a kind of bullshittery I have no taste for.

Yeah, I don’t want to taste that.
