  • This blog is to share the information lost in our own minds. Yes, we are writers. But perhaps more important we are translators. When you learn how to cut through the BS and turn it into effective, compelling communication, you become invaluable.

Understanding Internet Archetypes Posted on Sep 08, 2010 at 09:31 PM
The Internet is a funny place to live, especially when you haven’t been fully introduced to its many citizens. I've decided to compile a list of some of the more interesting ones. Starting with... Troll Tagline: “LOL, I HaXX0red j00r w0rld” Favorite Beverage: Mountain Dew The internet is their soapbox, and they love nothing more than to prove that to you. If you write a post, you’re obviously wrong. If you comment on their work, they’ll tear into you for every comma splice or logical fallacy. They live and breaths the flame war, and just wish they didn’t get carpel tunnel every time they typed more than three sentences. They're smart, crafty and know just how to turn a perfectly functional internet community into a snarling, yapping pile of waste. Most of their favorite phrases include painful to read acronyms interspersed amongst grammatical unarguable, but excruciatingly pompous prose. They feed on the pain of others, and want nothing more than to shape the internet in their own image. Trolls are commonly found stalking the halls of forums. They drop their polemical phrases and skitter off to parts unknown to kindle another fire.

If Shaken, Will I Awaken? Posted on Apr 20, 2010 at 08:13 AM
Mother Earth is shakin and bakin, and I helped. Not directly, of course, but simply by being here along with you other six billion or so humanoids, among whom some feel compelled to tinker with Her vital organs. They explore, dig, drill and excavate, explode, pollute, contaminate, defile and burn, Her insides...gleeful disregard abounding... It seems she’s had enough. She starts with the quakes, tragic and logistic nightmares, seven now, then the Elyajolly volcano bakes all airline service in Europe by firing up the pink yin and yang of an Icelandic volcano which corrupts air traffic everywhere, and I’m guessing She’s just getting started. No myths here, you Sissies, Her arsenal’s bigger than yours and ours and She means business like no other, that is the troofus, Rufus. This revolution will be televised just as it has been up to now. It will be different, as you won't get 30 percent more laundry with your detergent, nor will you get 10 tacos for the price of five. Those kinds of perks and their pampering will not be televised, Nothing for it but to gird up our loins, put fire to a fatty and kiss the kids.
