BadFaggot, whose weblog I love, is selling many Monty Python episodes on VHS tapes. Although some episodes are missing, he reports that among the included Python segments will be the Spanish Inquisition.
I quickly clicked on Post A Comment so I could wittily add, "Why... I wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition..."
I had forgotten, although I was quickly reminded, that BadFaggot maintains his weblog courtesy of LiveJournal, and LiveJournal is a Fruity Little Club.
I hate LiveJournal!
For the most part, unless you're LiveJournal user, you can't post to a LiveJournal weblog. And some LiveJournal users even limit posts to people who they have deemed to be their LiveJournal "friends."
At times, I've considered just opening up a LiveJournal account so that I'd be able to post comments to LiveJournal weblogs, and have my sole entry in my LiveJournal be "Go here now."
But not. I'm not going to do that because... I don't want to join your fruity little club!
I hate LiveJournal.
Way back in the day, when I started SingleTails, for a while it seemed to me that I was the only leatherperson who was blogging. There were a lot of other homos who were blogging way back then, but I sometimes felt like I was treated as an interloper--the Cool Kids Table In The Cafeteria kind of thing--because I was kinky. And I was thrilledThrilledTHRILLED when I happened upon the previous incarnation of Forge Lives because it meant I wasn't the only one. And Forge devised this whole 100 Leather Bloggers thing, whereby if you were kinky and had a 'blog, you could put this little symbol thing on your front page so we would Know One Another, and the goal was to have as many as 100 kinky bloggers out there on the Internets. girlfag still has the 100 Bloggers thing on her excellent (Not LiveJournal) weblog. And when someone would send me email or post a comment along the lines of "Wow! Great blog! It's great to read someone kinky on the web" (yeah, this was a long time ago), I'd encourage them to start their own weblog, dangling the promise of the 100 Bloggers Project before them. Most of them went by the wayside after an initial "Well gosh, I'm not quite sure what to write here, but this is what I had for breakfast this morning..." kind of post, but many live on and thrive and I love to read them still.
And then along came LiveJournal. Sucking all that budding talent into their Fruity Little Club.
You all go off and enjoy yourselves. And it's not even like I won't ready your weblogs anymore. But since I can't post a comment, you'll never know whether or not I'm reading you or not, will you?
But let's be clear about one thing: I won't join your Fruity Little Club.
