It's Alive!

On (good/black) Friday, July 31, google killed gosporn and also my user account, no explanation except a link to the User Agreement. I sent an email requesting clarification, and no reply until Sunday evening, when the blog was just as inexplicably restored. I have several theories, in order of ridiculousness:

  • The Madonna Youtube video posted on 7/29 (now removed!) violated some stupid copyright law.
  • The aliens who secretly control google feared I was dangerously close to exposing their agenda, but then figured out I have no idea what I'm actually talking about.
  • Jesus was mad at me for comparing him to Dionysus.
  • Dionysus AKA Jesus AKA the Joker decided to have some fun.
  • It was just a glitch.

I think I'll do a backup.

Too fuckin' bizarre, Michael! Very happy to see the Forces of Light overcoming (no … no pun intended, LOL) the Forces of Blandness. Speaking of resuscitating the dead and/or Frankensteinian creations, ever here of DJ Lobsterdust before? Well then, get your dancin' shoes on!

A born singer/dancer my(s)elf,

I recently did a back up too. I often wonder if these words here are now forever. Do my great grand kids one day search out my comments on Gosporn to know me?

Sometimes I want to erase my entire virtual self. No back up, nothing. I wonder about the idea of "virtual community", is it real? Authentic? And I may need that kind of ego death one day. I guess we'll see.

glad your avatar wasn't forcibly taken from you.
take care.

Yes, very odd. I wasn't even too pissed off at google, almost please to see it gone, a new chapter, etc. So now I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do.

That old Blondie song had some line about people dancing "man to man" in it too.

Thanks everyone for the comments and the letters of concern, they are all much appreciated. Now... back to work!
