Please find enclosed in this post a heartfelt plea to come with me on the playground to swing on the swings, slide down the slide, and kick the kickball around.
I want to have fun. I want YOU to have fun.
I have a nice game where you can have fun, but here's the kicker. The more people play, the more fun. The less people play, the less fun.
I have another blog, Who's In Charge Here?.
I've been trying to get people to visit there. It's not about amassing visits on my hit counter, it's not about generating ad revenue (not having ads is actually a severe handicap on ad revenue). It's about FUN. F-U-N.
This game is easy and hard at the same time. There is no wrong answer. But arriving at what you consider the right answer can require some effort and thinking on your part.
This is the blog in a nutshell:
Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.
A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"
After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.
Where else on the web are you going to be able to vote on Scandinavian death metal band Opeth:
The bootyliciously lovely group Peach Candy
And indie darlings Wilco
The answer is not one single goddamn other place. American Idol? NO WAY.
I sincerely thank all the people that have voted thus far on the bands I have highlighted. To everyone else -- won't you please come out and play?
