You’ve GOT to be kidding, right?

I read this, I heard this, I laughed at the absurdity of this.

Best of lists will come and go.  This song should have never been a contender.

Meanwhile… check this out:

Explains a lot, don’t you think?

 

Oh, and read the comments.  AMRFP is there.  😉

What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

June 2, 2012

Hello, yeah it’s been a while.  Not much, how ’bout you? 

I’ve been neglectful and that is a downright, dirty shame.  No excuse, really, just left alone to my own devices.  Living life, you know,  workin’ and payin’ the bills.  Advantages of Mutual Respect and Fair Play has suffered, not because I haven’t been writing (because I have) but for the lack of anything meaningful to say to the blogosphere that is profound.

There are many avenues on the WWW that afford writers the opportunity to vent, create and critique as they choose and I have been caught up in several that have helped me produce a rather impressive portfolio, for which I am grateful.  And with that burgeoning sack of words I have decided to branch out into the publishing forums, you know… go LEGIT.   I realize that is setting me up for gross rejection and perilous scrutinizing, but I think I can handle it. 

But it is here on AMRFP that my life really turned and I regret not following through.  My fair BB has been encouraging me along and if not for this site, there would be no collaboration between us and really, the rest of my accomplishments (if any) will pale besides being with her.

Without going into all the gory details, suffice it to say that I will be making a more concentrated effort to earn the readership that I have acquired.  I have had hits on this site from all over the world which a short time ago would have been deemed impossible.  Being a writer today is a thrilling adventure and a humble undertaking.  You rise and fall by mere words alone.

I’ll be back to report on my progress in life, love and the pursuit of being published in bonafide print periodically, so check back in again from time to time.

It’s not over till it’s over…

peace.
