On Vox: Thanks a lot. I got a broken heart. That's all I got.

I thought I'd close out this thing with a couple of old Rank and File songs.  They kind of sum up the way I feel about this whole Vox coming to an end thing.

I'll miss you all and the quirky little community we made up.  I'll see you around the web, probably mostly at Wordpress, Tumblr, and Multiply.  I may even pony up the money to store MP3s at Wordpress.  Who knows what greatness or obscurity I shall achieve?  Stay tuned.

Don't act surprised when he tells you where you're going.

On this train the conductor wears black.

Well, they're shutting down BlogLines on October 1, too.

Let's check in with Jimi and see what he thinks.

On Vox: Farewell Donkey Wednesday

First, a donkey story from the Jamaica Gleaner.

Second.  Hey, SixApart!  Cee-Lo and I have a message for you:

 
Lately I've been thinking that maybe I'm over the internet.  I rarely feel the need to create a real blog post-- with sentences and thoughts and stuff.  Even Tumblr (which is more like hitting ping pong balls at the internet and seeing if anybody hits one back) has lost a bit of its luster.  I have been passing through a long valley of depression and I think that may be part of it, too.  I had even started a post about how I've reached the end of the internet and had nothing more to contribute. 

Even though I was ready to pull the plug on myself, I do not feel like being euthanized by SixApart. I do not go gentle into that good night.

Until I decide where I shall go I have staked out my moniker on all the free sites. Please friend me up.

I'm really rather flummoxed. Where to move my stuff?  Where to post things?  What about my hundreds of music files?  And what about the donkeys???

I just don't know.

My input to Vox has dwindled to nothing lately but I have still enjoyed dropping by the neighborhood page and catching up on you guys and your hijinx.  I hope to see you all around the nets.

Here's some new B&S.

If you aren't too offended by the f-word and the n-word you should definitely listen to this new Cee-lo.


And, it's a sing-along.  So there's that.

On Vox: Russian Donkey Recap Wednesday  
11:29am 18/08/2010
 
 
sixbucksamonkey

After the big media kerfluffle over the parasailing donkey, British tabloid The Sun stepped in and purchased the donkey for 70,000 roubles (£1,500 or  $2,346.75).  She is now ensconced in the Kremlin Horse Riding School where she receives four-star treatment.  You can see the story here.


Except…

 

According to The Guardian, Komsomolskaya Pravda says they got the wrong donkey.  The donkey getting the massages and organic carrots is Anpaka.  The donkey who went on the sky ride is Manya, and she is still at home by the Black Sea. 


I had hoped for a happy ending to this story, but instead we will have to settle for a Loretta Lynn song containing a mule analogy.

Now with extra baby cuteness!

I have a busy day lined up buy I thought you'd like to stare at this explosion of adorableness.  I know I do!

She's a 4-day old zedonk at the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in Lumpkin County, Ga.and she's making the rounds in the internet news today.

I was so upset by this story about a parasailing Russian donkey that I got agitated and forgot to post it yesterday.

The article is woefully light on details of the donkey's present whereabouts and well-being.

Those fucking Russians.  First with the dancing bears and now with this... Ima hafta slap some bitches.

When I saw this fabulous print by MikeOncley at Etsy I had to share it with my Vox peeps. 


Yeah, I drink the coffee at IHOP.
