cult of the snotnose dumbfuck

The Cult of the Amateur: How Today's Internet is Killing Our Culture is an important new book from Andrew Keen, whoever the fuck he is. Released two days ago -- just in time for the Pagan Acid Rituals of Summer Solstice -- Cult has all sorts of name personages in either a) a righteous snit or b) a feeding frenzy of hyper-competitive hagiographic over-blurbage. The Blog-O-Sphere is a-roil with hot debate. People are rending their garments and falling on their necks. Or subscribing maiden aunts to the Weekly Standard in advance of the heralded revolution in Taste, Values and God's Apple Pie. Huzzah!

Beauth is Trudy. Trudy Beauth.

Not really sure why I brought her into it. But hey, you simply must buy a copy of this book, and one for each of your underlings, non-degreed sex slaves and household pets! Andrew Keen is a keen observer. And a nifty guide to upper-class persnicketyness. Is your blog getting a bit stale with just hip-hop vids and random tit-shots? Well, here's your chance to second the opinions of your betters. Go for it!

There are no reviews on Amazon just yet, but I leaped at the chance to be first up. I hope they approve what I just submitted, as I think it represents a considered opinion from a loyal-opposition perspective. Well, sorta loyal. However, as we all know, life is not fair and the Man is ever vigilant in the defense of compliant and ne-plus-ultra-pliant vanilla civility (thnx and a tip-o-the-hat to Tim O'Reilly), so maybe my review will get spiked. If so, fuck you. But I did grab a screen shot before hitting the SAVE button. I don't want my tiny bit of dissenting efluvia to be lost amidst all the intelligent and well-reasoned conversation that is sure (as shit) to ensue.

So here ya go...

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
