On Being Merely Fairly Decent - Part 1

Click on this link to be whooshed to a Yahoo Group from which you can download a video of your host at this here weblog juggling seven balls. Barely.

That performance was, at the time, a personal record. That performance was, is, and will forever be light years and galaxies away from a world record.

Your humble host is a fairly decent juggler. He is certainly not the best in the world.

He is also not the person pictured in the jester costume at the right.

Egads, is that a woman?
That is unfortunate.

I would not even draw her a map of Palau.

Seems to be some top shelf poon in the juggling world.

Backdoor juggler indeed.

Now that Flamingo has enshrined the Blogs of Note and made himself the arbiter thereof, I thought I’d go about ranking the blog administrators and/or posters who frequent the main blogs. As with Tim’s rambling manifesto, I’ve taken liberties and ranked people in subjective fashion. For the most part, I’m ranking originality, creativity, humor, writing skill, posting frequency and occasionally just pure attractiveness (if you’re a female or just flat handsome like me). I also can’t rank everyone; I do work for a living. Without further adieu….
1. Garrett. The Innovator. Creative posts, proper grammar and can handle a pistol in a gun fight. Lacks the general malice and mens rea of Flamingo and he occasionally wears vests, but still able to mix it up when duty calls. The guy pulls in painfully boring links and makes them work. Daddy like.
2. Flamingo. The man has talent; add too much time on your hands and you have a deadly cocktail. Also a brutal antagonist. There’s a lot of hate in this little man. I pissed him off once and he created a whole blog devoted to pooping on me. I give Garrett the nod purely on originality and just raw goofiness.
3. Chuck Dawson/Omar. The man’s a machine. A rock-solid profile. His brawl with Drea’s hubby was art. Whoever he is, he’s got the skills. FD and I think The Poster from Purvis is all that and a bag of chips.
4. Crusher. Crusher’s profile and blog page are Allah-given talent. He tends to keep his posts short and that’s why I dinged him. But he’s had some precision-guided bunker-busters in the past. A huge player.
5. Erin. This chick can write like nobody’s business. A gentle creature as best I can tell, I’d rank her higher if she could dish out punishment and spew hate like Flamingo.
6. Crallspace. Good poster and a really solid blog page of his own. Lots of skills. A little too political for me, but I understand that’s what fluffs him up.
7. Velvet Fog. Needs to post a little more to be properly rated. But I like what I see when he pops in. Even though he once went after The Game, I still respect his skills.
8. Chris. A very, very entertaining blog of his own gives him solid props. Wish he posted a little more so I could rate him more accurately. But nothing not to like here.
9. Dongley Shlongford. I like the man, but he’s almost a one-trick pony with the Japanese calligraphy. Love his profile pic. Never seen a donkey with monster wood.
10. Hairy Prison Guard. Probably someone’s alter ego. One trick pony with the ‘its OK to cry’ card.
11. Bizzaro Garrett. Not sure who he is but he doesn’t add much to the mix. I do like that he’s out there causing Garrett grief, though.
12. Drea. Sorry you came in last. Cute girl though, and that counts for a lot in my book.

You are just bitter because it is hard to create adequate maps of polynesian island chains with a starters pistol...

I got whooshed to some stupid place that wanted me to sign in and give all sorts of personal information, Garrett. Did you sell out to The Man?

I am a big fan of Erin and Crall and check their sites with Pavlovian regularity.

I object to the ranking of the Blogs of Note - this is not a competition. You are missing the entire point of Blogs of Note; it isn't to appoint a champion, it is to entertain ----- me.

I also object to ranking "posters who frequent the main blogs." While I appreciate each of your comments, you people are like pigeons on our sculptures.

I also object to being ranked #2.

Sorry about that link - I didn't realize it would require you to be a Yahoo user to access the video.

Unfortunately for Backyard Juggler fans worldwide, I haven't any videos on line other than at that Yahoo group to date.

Stay tuned, though. I have a feeling there's a juggling website in my future.
