This New American
My man SF, who figures into the story about the Whitney vs. Fugazi mashup, has a blog now. You can read This New American here (http://thisnewamerican.blogspot.com).
I'm not ready to take back all the nasty things I said about blogs and those who read them, but you could certainly be forgiven for reading TNA (no entendre intended). It's way more interesting than this, and SF doesn't subject you to advertising, shameless self promotion, and weeks on end without a post (at least not yet...). If anyone could take the "blah" out of blog, it would be SF.
SF gives his take on the aforementioned mashup here. My recollection of our ancient kerfuffle differs slightly. As I recall, the debate (such as it was) went something like, "But dude, Depeche Mode sucks." "Dude, Fugazi sucks." [mutual angry stares] Despite this and other equally mature and relevant fallings out, SF stuck around, cause that's how family do. Besides, now I make Depeche Mode mashups and SF goes to punk rock shows, so I guess we both got the last laugh. Speaking of family, even Monty showed up in this post. What's up, Monty? The blogosphere is a funny place -- you never know who's going to show up.
J, who also figures into the story, is now the future Mrs. SF. Congrats -- I could not be happier for them.
Lastly, I'm not sure who "This New American" refers to. SF's people, like mine, have been here for a minute. Maybe he will grace us with an explanation in a future post.
