Reports Of Our Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

To even try to claim to be as epic as the one Samuel Langhorne Clemens, a.k.a., Mark Twain, in the title of a blog post may be a stretch, but it's still way too true. And I just drove through his hometown of Hannibal, Missouri, so that counts for something.

Perusing the internet this evening I came upon a post by newly christened blogger The Dolo, in a close to tirade against Ivy League Douchers and Sonia Sotamayor. No doubt, Dolo's ability to link a Supreme Court Nominee, skateboarding, and one of the best marketing campaigns out there together seamlessly is applaudable, and I gittally await further posts. That's not the rub.

This is the rub. Badger, this was no White Flag of Surrender, think of it more as one of those, ugh, real recognize real moments; rub your tummy and pat yourself on the head at the same time, smack yourself on the back and let's move on. Hopefully, the tone of this post equals the sarcasm of yours, and now we can vie for our respective roles in, to quote, “Crushing the Minneapolis skateboarding online market." If I have one suggestion, hire a copy editor over at Hardflip INC. In the meantime, en garde.

I'm going to have to back Munzy on this. He tolerated my copy editing his early Skateboard Mag contributions (post-production, of course) and it's good to see he's spreading the word. And I'm even down with morphing a word to accentuate a point (see gittally). Without good grammar, we have chaos. On a side note, is Glue Factory adding a high profile local talent to it's roster? Rumor is GF corporate HQ is working up a contract as I type (apparently involving chicken breasts as filming incentives???). Is a comment board the right place to announce news like this or do I need to send a twitter? Can you twitter from a land-line phone (note that it is cordless)?
