SUNDRY COMMENTS.

it is of course true that the greatest thing about this blog is its interactive nature. i spent years scribbling furiously in books, in the hopes that someday someone might read my great and fascinating (har har) memoirs and have something (anything) to say about them. be affected in some way.
but i cannot fathom peoples' anonymous comments that have nothing to do with the postings at hand. i do appreciate the comment, inasmuch as it's an attempt to share something with me, but the complete irrelevance drives me batty. i must confess, blogging is the one pseudo-sequential thing i have in my life, if only via chronology and subject matter. gods know my conversational skills cannot boast the same talent. please respect this.
there are moments, of course, like the last 10 days, stuck inside my computer with no home phone, that i Truly appreciate my fellow addicts and this viable platform for expedient communication. but to those of you anonymous commenters out there who add vague comments about baked goods and good bands and such, please, i DO appreciate them, but there must be a more apt venue. like direct email. or (Gods forbid) in PERSON!?!?!
perhaps i'm being mean.
how 'bout we leave this particular posting as the SUNDRY COMMENTS post. i'll add a link at the side of my page later on, and all sundry comments can go here, for those of you for whom email is not (??) an option. if you are just looking for some sort of communicative attention, this is your ticket as well (although I must remind you this is Not human communication. all i am in these words is pixels on a screen.)
for those of you doing your own navel-gazing and might be misled into thinking that anonymous comments are the same as comunicating with me, my suggestion is starting your own blog by clicking expediently in the top left corner of this page. then email me the link.

I just want it to be known that I did NOT post the anonymous comment.
That post, is in my mind, pretty sketched out and veering toward malicious.
The reason I'm writing this at all is that I too am a fan of cat power and have been pushing upon friends the greatness of oddity that this band spews(although now, my connection to the band is stained) and I do not want my name associated by any of this.
I will give my computer to the police to prove this fact if need be.
hunt this prick down.

My appologies for the last sentance. I forgot to capitalize the H.

thank you for the clarification and the signature. i think i have a vague idea who commented here...and "um" is not your style, even as a joke.

steflenk said...

not to mention that the "um" comment is downright fucking twisted.

the initial comment was intended to be playful within the parameters of the post. i can tell you that ABSOLUTLY NOTHING UNKIND was meant to come across. i don't even know catpower, and i am also pretty shy about letting people see my body parts and guts. all the love.
