Half Sigma’s weird self-nullifying announcement of an attempt to change net identities seems to have kicked off a larger trend of bloggers-going-crazy-at-end-of-year. Thus, next up we have Elliot Temple, David Deutsch’s biggest cheerleader for probably a decade, explaining ceremoniously that he has changed his mind about David Deutsch. Duly noted.
I have written some pretty dumb/weird stuff and gone off the rails on this or that momentary obsession, but I’m really not sure how I’m going to top this sort of thing. These guys are really setting the bar high.
RELATED? UPDATE: After much soul-searching and consultation with an internet anagram generator, I have decided to change my alias to (The) Crimson Reach. I’m trying to distance myself from the old persona. So please, effective immediately I request that the Internet cease all references to ‘Sonic Charmer’ and start called me (The) Crimson Reach. The blog will be much the same, only I will not mention parking-lot-related pet peeves of mine (such as IDIOT ASSHOLES who enter like a six- or ten-story parking garage and then drive 2.5mph trying to ‘follow someone to their space’ oblivious to the fact that (a) there are 10 cars behind them being delayed by this and (b) if they would just fucking drive up a few levels there would be free spaces galore. You fucking morons.) Accordingly, all parking-related comments will be deleted. In addition, in an unrelated but simultaneous change, I have ceremoniously changed my mind about (oh, let’s say) Oliver Willis (i.e. how stupid he is) and will start reading him religiously and praising his insights instead. I’m in the process of registering an official Oliver Willis fanclub domain as we speak. I’ll be moderating the Oliver Willis discussion forum.
UPDATE 2: Changed my mind. Changing back. Also, no Willis. And parking rants totally allowed.
UPDATE 3: By popular demand, (The) Crimson Reach is back!
UPDATE 4: Potential new blog title to go along with all these changes: Reach With Crimson Grip. Feedback welcome. Still focus-grouping it. Will let you know.
