Battling Blogs

Some interesting back and forth between three local blogs (http://dave-lucas.blogspot.com/, http://albanyeye.blogspot.com/, and http://mohawkvalley.wordpress.com/) recently. They are yipping and snipping at each other and claiming that they are stealing each others' posts. Albany eye is the best of the lot and has some stuff worth stealing. The other two have got to be kidding. This one http://dave-lucas.blogspot.com/ has an entry today with the headline Rapestry. I know it's about music, but the headline is priceless. Of course any blog entry that starts with "Interesting Regis and Kelly Show this morning," should be blown up anyway. Interesting; yeah, if you're dead. Does anybody ever really watch crap like that?

Having said that, the post entitled "Walking Dead" on the above site is terrific. An inside look at local TV News. Sorry, I don't usually use Oxymorons. Local TV and news should never appear in the same sentence. In 30 minutes you get about 7 minutes of commercials, 2-3 minutes of banter and "Happy Talk", another 2 minutes or so of teasers and bumpers and other transitions, 2-3 minutes of sports and 3-4 minutes of the weathercaster stating and restating the forecast and playing with all the graphics. That leaves maybe 10 or 11 minutes for news. If it's the 11 pm, at least 5 minutes is the same stuff you heard at 6 pm, 5 pm and 5:30 pm. Give me radio and the newspapers any day.

Such drama! "Rapestry" combines Rap + History. I know it's lame, but I was up til 2am trying to resuscitate one of my computers, so that was the best I could do trying to think up a unique title for the post. I wasn't aware (and did not intend to be in) a three-way "battle" of any kind! OPT ME OUT, please! At least you liked the other post...

I essentially like your blog. A lot of work goes into it and there is some good stuff, though it's very busy. The headline caught my eye and the back and forth about Albany Eye with the Mohawk Valley blogger is quite entertaining.

I plan to keep reading.
