The Great XMAS Blogroll Induction Extravaganza – Day 3. Also, the Apocalypse.
A Note from Le Clown: Dear Carnies, today is the end of the world. I’m writing you these last words from work… that’s how much work ethic I have. My kids are home with my wife… that’s how clever I am. We’ve skipped on the last few meals, and opted to stop washing… well they haven’t washed, I did—I would like to look pretty when I meet the Maker… I fear I might have a great deal of explanation to do, but I might have a better chance going through Heaven’s doors if my teeth are sparkling clean. But this is not about the Apocalypse, nor is about White Baby Jesus and Mayan yummy chocolate… this post is about Society Red, and I’d like to thank him for allowing me to butt in on his thread, and apologize to him for hijacking his blogroll spotlight…. said Le Clown. HAHAHAHAHA! Sorry Jesus. I take it back. Mea Culpa.
That my induction into your blogroll occurs on the shortest day of the year, the beginning of winter, and the end of the world (according to Mayan calculations) has not gone unnoticed Le Clown. I assume you planned it this way because you know how much I hate the season of winter (and the end of the world) and that you intended to ease my entry into one or the other with this gesture of love…thank you.
When I got the email from Le Clown asking if I would consider being inducted into his blogroll I was honored, floored, and a little tingly. Honored because I’ve read the blogs in Le Clown’s blogroll and as expected, the blogs endorsed by Le Clown are outstanding; floored because the caliber of work within those blogs is both amazing and intimidating; and tingly because this is a virtual reach-around from the magnanimous master himself! Le Clown and his blog are a phenomenon; he and his cast of characters are some of the best people I’ve ever known. I’ve been a member of the Le Clown fan club for about six months and I can honestly say I’ve never felt closer to a crazy group of fuckers like I do to you.
The real eye-opener for me while meeting and hanging with Le Clown and his crew, is the process of realizing why I blog and what my blogging persona is. I started blogging to clear my head, like a laxative for my brain. What I realized a year later is that I love to write. I want to improve and find my voice. Many of you are funny as fuck(!), and when I read your work I nearly pee my pants laughing. Others write of life transitions and difficult situations and the bravery to face these things in a way that makes me want to reach out and hug you. All of you teach by example; your creativity and style and commitment to your work contribute to the positive evolution of everyone that reads you, and you make me want to be a better writer. I am honored to be inducted but I’m especially grateful to have this platform to say “thank you fuckers”, for all you do!
Thank you Le Clown, and a special thank you to Madame Weebles for stopping by my blog last July and serving as the portal that led me to the vortex, sucking me into this world.
Post Scriptum from Le Clown: Before you all die from a horrible death, during a full-house-end-of-the-world concert by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Nickelback, in the blazing heat of Hell, you might want to read a few posts from John the Apostle:
