A personal diary keeping people abreast of what I am working on writing-wise.

Friday, September 21, 2007


There are no words to describe this blog I just found. I think it's a humor blog, but of the sort of self-involved giggling variety that really is only funny to the person writing it, and oh, what a lonely funny it is.

Seriously, you just have to see it to believe it. I am having a gag reflect to linking directly, so if you must know, then just Google for the title "News from Earth X" and it will likely be the second item in your search. Note the author's surname with a little bit of irony, too.

The reason I bring it up is he chose to write this about me:

Jamie S Rich's Have you seen the Horizon Lately has been such a dismal failure, it hasn't stopped him from releasing the follow-up; Have You Seen Me Insert my Severely Small Penis inside that Missing Girl Yet. Set in Portugal, it tells the story of Jamie, St Francis of Assissi and Jesus Harry Christ on a road trip looking for illegal poon to penetrate. The first issue is probably going to be delayed.

I suppose it deserves some distinction for being the strangest thing that may have ever been written about me. It's actually the third paragraph in an eighteen paragraph screed posted a week ago that is like some kind of buckshot attack on the comic book industry that makes about as much sense in full as it does in this tiny part here. (And note, the grammar is all his.) It must be a taxing style to write in, because this fella has only managed to make 14 posts this year. They must have changed his meds in August, because he was on fire with 4 whole write-ups. One imagines that he enters some kind of trance-like state and the light pours out of him until he just can't make himself laugh anymore.

It's sad how genius so often goes unnoticed.

I didn't know you knew St. Francis of Assisi. Is he a cool guy?

Jamie S. Rich said...

Yeah, as long as you don't mind the smell of bird shit.

Awhuh? What a total loser. Yeah I said it! LOSER! Yeah that's how hard I am.

Wow, what banality! It's almost as if you've been sighted on the radar of some diluvian force of studied hipness - someone reads "The Onion" and thinks he/she can sink his/her teeth into and bloodily savage an undeserving target (which, as you're guessed, probably won't matter to anyone other than the writer).

I mean, what was written *is* funny... but in a "laughing *at*..." kind of way... :)
