Having nothing to say, no words but the words of others, I have to speak

the format though not 'original' highlighted an interaction of different layers quite well.

1) you the task master, would blog almost everyday, flipping through subjects in a mostly but not completely random fashion

2) you supplied many links throughout every post that clearly pointed arrows from your "ego" to the outside world... creating a nice flow and defused a lot of the self important elements that may have otherwise began to develop, and allowed for a lot to ponder as a 'viewer' or commenter.

3) the comments from regular 'personalities' allowed for there to be a familiarity, again not pointing back to you... but shared in a give and take way...

4) the comments by the anons allowed for a darkhorse element, chaos sort of. Never being able to pin a comment on to a specific persona.... pleasent or crude... or sometimes with a name attached... like finding a bottle in the water with a message.

5) you sometimes, and ofter exchanged with the comments... raised your persence but this time, as a commmenter... on behalf of the published post view (either as joker or straight debater)... integateing your idea not as the 'word', but as something worth debating... or even sidetracking completely to a differnt subject that was raised

Merci, Nick!

Mais tu pourrais continuer le principe du blog, différemment. C'est extrême, un arrêt brutal. Ton blog est nécessaire, il est tout à faut unique en son genre et donne des perspectives à beaucoup de gens. Tu pourrais peut-être trouver une formule différente; pas tous les jours? Avec des participations? Ou bien plusieurs blogs?

Enfin, c'est mon avis...

Merci encore,

Gilles

Your birthday exit

I've been coming here every day for 3 or 4 years.
I shall miss you and your brand of intelligence more than I can say. I shall miss you a lot.
Good luck with your new pursuits.
If only there were some one else like you, but there isn't.
You have upon occasion drawn me from deep depression
You are wonderful and contrary and a genuine icon.
I wonder that you are not more famous cuz your music is some of the best of the last 30 odd years.
All the best Mr Momus.
Keep on kicking !
