The Blogosphere Tends to Eat Itself

Driving back from Morro Bay this weekend I got a call from my friend Tim Archibald.

Archibald:"Dude you got to get back here. Your wife has gone off on APE. The blogs are on fire!"

Me: "That doesn't surprise me but I don't have time for all that drama. I am all about shooting these weird pictures no one seems to know what do with. I have fallen in love agin with the whole process and don't want to kill my buzz by looking at blogs."

Archibald: "No really. Its off the chain. Like the Chip Simons story mixed with Abu Gurab."

Me "Whatever."

So I turn up the latest Mexican Gangster rap band that I am into and look forward to a family trip to Target upon my return.
24 hours later I am knee deep into it. I am constantly checking who said what and chiming in and staying out and getting emails from all over the country and people I don't even know are calling me and...well you know.

The blogshere is like the mafia. I am Michael Corleone in Godfather 3: I keep trying to get out but they keep sucking me back in.

There was a lot of strange things being said but I don't think your wife was one of the out of line ones.
But I agree with you I think, your work is more important and defining of who you are than any blog.
Great work.
