found in blogdom

found in pockets co-conspirator AMEN was interviewed by Radio Free Nation this week. RFN is a blog broadcast schemed into virtual reality by Marty Owings. Marty is a passionate broadcaster with a love for the often unnoticed side of the world. He leads a great interview that was sparked by his finding FIP on a random browse through the blogs of note and it turned him on enough to want to do an interview.

We had a chance to speak for a few minutes prior to the interview and Marty was quick to pick up on my anarchist philosophies and we had a great discussion about life, loves, and literature of the digital realm. check him out by clicking on the RFN logo. to hear the found in pockets interview, look for the Michael Franklin interview.

on being popular

the headlines all read
"This Blog Could Be Popular!"
and then it was so.

So SJ and I came up with a silly idea, at 3 a.m. here in the states and presumably at 3 a.m. down under as well, to create a blog that was about nothing. The Seinfeld of blogs. Taking scans or writing haiku about things in our pockets at the end of the day. It meant nothing more than a great goof.

Sure, a sociology student will see the great social commentary about class structure and proven so by the items we carry. The poli-sci people will all claim it to be relevant to our consumerist trends. The metaphysics assholes will tell us we have too much baggage on our physical plains and need to release this baggage in order to create order. Jane and I will tell you that haiku is funny, by it's nature, and silly pics of items in our pockets tends to show that we are inherently still that 6 year old that would pick up a piece of dog poo, if it was shaped funny enough, and put it into our pockets for mom to find on laundry day.

But, we have made the "Blogs of Note" and found ourselves to be popular now. Rad. Now, instead of soapboxing in a blog, because I have never read a blog where-in the writer uses a blog as a political soapbox, never, never ever, I will put a video of a great singer in the U.S.A. His name is david rovics.
