More internet surfing brings more results
Last night Jack kept us all entertained by posting on his blog a few negative comments from a fansite about himself, thus proving he reads the messageboards and setting off the nattering nabobs of negativity there who hang out and diss the person they are supposedly supporting. Now they are all sad because they no longer feel free to act themselves. I say the usual rule applies - if you want to say something you wouldn't say to somebody's face you really shouldn't ought to put it on the internet.
Having said that I might go back and shove a few of my own comments here down the memory hole.
It all started with this piece in gigwise, where the blogger felt it was incumbent upon him to order Jack to do things differently because "necessity calls for" it. You can see Jack paid him a visit too, in the comments section. No idea if it's really him but it has his style. The messageboards had a me-too! moment, posted the article and agreed with it. So Jack C&P'd it and put on his blog. It's gone now.
Then tonight as I was trawling the interwebs Jack himself popped up in a chatroom and chatted for an hour or so. He answered the question I asked him, which of course now means I won't wash my screen for a month. Suffice to say it probably wasn't what you'd think I'd ask. Someone asked him what brand of toothpaste he used and got a little bit of poetry in reply.

Then he talked about how weird bats were for a few minutes and left.
Luckily I happened to have a relevant picture to illustrate this strange moment.

I'll try to think of someone else to talk about next time. For instance one of my local Borders books has a signing by Karl Rove. I wonder what would happen if I turned up and was as threatening as the right wingers are being to democratic congresspersons? Ans: I would be arrested.
