On blogging (again) and Juggernaut

"I'm the Juggernaut bitch!"

I just had to get that out of the way folks, sorry about that.

Anyway, here's an excerpt from today's El Nuevo Día (the link of said newspaper's website being here):

Blogger ( es un buen comienzo. Este popluar servicio de Google nos lleva paso por paso, desde escoger un nombre para nuestro diario virtual, hasta varias herramientas que haran que nuestro blog sea visto y comentado por otras personas. Si se nos va la mente en blanco, fácil!, podemos dar una miradita a lo que otras personas han hecho. Trata de ser original, ya que es algo que buscan los blogentusiastas.

Por José Hernández Falcón

And the translation:

Blogger ( is a good start. This popular service from Google takes us step by step, from choosing a name for our virtual diary, to various tools so your blog can be seen and commented on by other people. If your mind goes blank, easy, just take a look at what other people have done. Try to be original, since this is something blog enthusiasts look for.

Now, I'm sure Mr. Hernández is a very fine, very respectable journalist of high calibur. But well, I just have to wonder now, about this line:

"Try to be original, since this is something blog enthusiasts look for."

So, looking at my three previous posts, I've finally figured it out, why no one's commented on my wonderful pieces of high-calibur writing. It's because I haven't been original enough. Jesus, this must be the millionth and one blog that deals with rants and music, of course! Silly me! I should've sat down and decided to take the road less taken. Why, my blog should be a photoblog...a photoblog of...fruits! That's it!

Alright now, this is now a photoblog about fruits.

I think the image speaks for itself. Admire the fruit. Become the fruit. The watermelon compels you to comment on its succulent flavor and its rosy complection the same way Jennifer Lopez would if you had her in a room to yourself.

Please. That's worse than a blog about rants and music.

Speaking of music, I think I'll waste some more space here listing my top ten bands.

1. The Flaming Lips
2. Bright Eyes
3. Bad Religion
4. The Ramones
5. Saosin
6. The Dresden Dolls
7. Nirvana
8. The Clash
9. New York Dolls
10. Green Day

It's an odd list, I think. I mean, look at my #1 and compare it to my #10. Then again, no one touches The Flaming Lips and their awesomeness. I'm dead serious, they are one of the best biker pirates you'll ever meet in this lifetime, mostly because there won't be any biker pirates in the next life. The biker pirate species will be extinct and dead and there won't be anyone around ready to wage war against the boring and the mundane. The same thing could be applied to The Dresden Dolls. I fully believe they've sparked a new movement, and it's called punk cabaret. But thirty years from now, it'll be just like the punk movement all over again, with some variation of Hot Topic selling punk cabaret merchandise at insane prices. Well, at least they still sell The Ramones T-Shirts.

So, you all expected a review on X-men 3, right? Too bad, but hey, I'm sure there are plenty of unoriginal blogs floating around that've already done the exact same thing.

I think Mr Hernandez is writing for three year olds. Or people who have never seen a computer.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to more fruit.
