If at first you don't succeed: redefine success

April 5, 2004 at 2:05 AM -- just over SEVEN years ago -- the very first communique on Fratocrate's Excellence Through Mediocrity was submitted for your viewing discomfort. It took exactly 17 more minutes for post #2, resulting in one of the earliest references to microwaved banana peels ever on the internet. Pretty powerful stuff.

Since then, the blogosphere has devolved into a simulacrum of modern hollywood...creativity, personal voice, and discovery trumped by crass consumerism and derivative works.

The internet's petri dish has of course since moved to twitter, which has led to JHC's Corollary: "The length of an effective blog post shall be directly proportional to the amount of time it takes to find and procure a clip of Jenna Haze getting DP'ed." (tempted to provide a link). I don't know what's going to happen to our collective attention spans once the fiber starts rolling into our homes and LTE radiates rapidshared porn directly into our wrinkly balls.

I want a return to the good old days...to the long form from the amateurs and not just the new yorker. I want to check my referrer logs again to see who's morbid curiosity is piqued by my photoshop masterpieces. I want In The Crease to post "funny" comments again so that we can all laugh at him behind his back like the good old days.

I know, I know, too much to ask. In the meantime, peep an old friend of ETM, stacey dash, selling sex over a great Curren$y track (haven't been able to find it yet)


yours truly,
a resurrected JHC
