Another One Bites The Dust Is A Badass Jam And Hopefully Not a Running Theme Around Here

Ennui. I have it. Of the blog variety that is.

I don't think I'm alone, I've noticed it going around the blogosphere a bit. We're writing less, we're looking less. It's the dog days of Summer rearing their ugly heads. I'm actually okay with it, but I'm not going to pretend that one day, soon, you're going to show up here and find brilliance in writing.

Oh you might, in a month or two, but probably not right now. No, right now the best you can hope for is that I'll show up, punch the clock, drink a Diet Coke, fiddle with a paperclip, send a text message, take my lunch, screw around for another hour, think about checking the mail and then call it a day.

And, that, my friends? Is total bullshit. You should really expect more from me. You should pull me aside and get all up in my face, wave your finger around near my nose and say, "Look, asshole, get your ass in gear. Whip yourself into shape and give us something! Anything! Christ, it's freaking sad around here. You are fucking lazy! I've seen more action from a half salted slug."

You'd be right to do it. But, the problem is that I'd probably just shrug and say, "You're right." and then wander off like a dejected 14-year old boy that was just turned down for date to the dance.

I'm still here. I'm still around. I'm just asking for some lenience for the rest of this month. Hang with me, be my friend, enable my sad ass. I'll write when I can, when it comes from within, but I just can't handle all the GAWDDAMN pressure already. Jeez, get up off me, you freak!

Good news.

BoomTube is still in full force and will now be broadcast live every weekend.

Wait. Did you catch that right? Freaking A right you just did! You can now spend your Friday nights, with me. Look, the world just lost Michael Jackson, right? It's my turn to give back and spread this awesomosity out in full force. It's Human Nature. And I promise, it will be Off The Wall.

Gah, will I just fucking stop already?

Friday nights, 9 PM Central, 8 PM Mountain, 7 PM Pacific, 10 PM Eastern - you got that? You can find BoomTube right here. And just to make that easy for you, I'll put a button on my sidebar that you can just click on to tune in. You'll be able to chat with us (and amongst yourselves) live during the broadcast and if you can't make it, well you can watch anytime your little heart desires.

That? Is not grody by any means people.

Some of you may notice that is the time slot directly before the greatness that is known as Skankelodeon. That's right. BoomTube is a warm up act. Which means two hours of freaking fantastic every Friday, just for you. Which I cannot find the URL for right at the moment, but I promise I'll have a button for that too.

You might get something a little grody from that show.

Whew, this is getting exhausting. But don't go yet because I've got one more for you.

As some of you may know, my husband is a retired House DJ with 14 years of experience under his belt. He took a hiatus from spinning and playing around the country to do a little thing called starting a family. But now that he's used to us and maybe even a little sick us, he's ready to get back at it. He's heavily influenced by 80's Synth Pop and the Chicago and San Francisco House scenes. I know because I edited the bio.

So we've taken care of your Saturday nights too and you can find him and his radio show, Droppin' The Boom here. (Scroll to the bottom for the full scoop.) Midnight Central. You do the math on the other time zones. I gave you the formula earlier. And you know I'll be giving y'all a button for that as well.

Woah, I just laid a hurtin' on your world, didn't I?

My weekends are now complete. But I'm going to need to be reminded of this schedule repeatedly because I did not smoke all that pot for nothing and now my brain can't retain... what?

Deb said...

I'm all run over with the blog ennui, too. I think all the BlogHer foreplay is ironically killing my blogging buzz. Weekends are often a quaalude blur without the quaalude (usually), but I'm going to try to remember to drop in on this party.

I've got a super hard case of the summer apathy myownself. We're having a BBQ Friday, and that sounds like the perfect music to grill to!! I'll be sure to check in!

MommaKiss said...

if only I didn't strip on Friday nights, I'd be here.


The DJ scene seems to be a tight knit group - I'll check it out! If I'm off the pole, that is.

Seems to me this video stuff probably takes a lot of time and effort...don't be worrying about the blog. Live Boom Tube is sooooo worth it.

I'm just glad you used the word 'grody'.
That, my friend, is puttin' a hurtin' on my world more than anything.

flutter said...

hey asshole, get your sorry ass in gear, I expect more from you!

like usage of the word ennui, for example...

BusyDad said...

If I wagged my finger near your nose, I'd just end up poking your nose and saying "boooooop"

Because I am odd like that.

And evidently no help at all.

Cant wait..I have no idea how you fit all this activities into your life....geeezzzz.

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

Hold please...googling that SAT word...

–noun a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom: The endless lecture produced an unbearable ennui.

There for the rest of you 'tards out there (ahem Hooker!). But, I'm overjoyed to not be lonely on the weekends anymore. I can get off those dating chat rooms that are full of sad single parents and watch you drunken effers!!!

I know it and I've seen it going around. It's sad when all I can think to blog about is my lack of blog fodder or my ugly ass thumbs. But I can't write when there's nothing there. Then again, I hate it when i take myself too seriously and should just put a dumb youtube video or tell a joke or something.
