HIJACKED


I apologize if Jfro fans have missed me, my blog was hijacked by spammers. That is why I'm now available at badassjfro.net.  All I wanted to do was stop giving money to Godaddy because they suck. That will show me to be a good Internet citizen! I hope Google comes to its senses someday and drops them as a partner (they make it much easier to buy a Blogger site from Godaddy than the Lifehacker-approved Dreamhost.)

I guess $10-a-year hosting is pretty much all up to the end user except for actual hosting part. Of course, Godaddy had no incentive to tell me it didn't go through for some reason. Instead, they sold my site to a spammer who is trading on my Internet good name. I don't want to know what they'd want me to pay for my site back. Badassjfro.net is fine, except for having to make up new calling cards. If you have old links that go to the original ash966.blogspot.com, they probably still work.

Also, my Google Groups mailing list for the blog has apparently been borked for a year. Anyone have any idea why? (Sigh) Maybe I should switch to Wordpress.

Just say No Daddy to Go Daddy! What a stupid name for a web host anyway!

Well I certainly won't use them after they wronged my sweetie so grievously . . .

Oh the horror when I went through my link to try to read her words of wisdom and found myself at Bad Ass JFro Business Solutions.

It's wrong, wrong I tell you!

STILL HATING ON MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS

Jason had an insightful post on newspapers in the Internet Age on his blog wherein he suggested we donate to keep the watchdogs of the press going. In an aside, he mentioned subscriptions for music: To be honest, it's the same thing with music downloads. I've been screaming for monthly subscriptions for years now, and they're still not here. (At least not on the scale of an iTunes or Amazon.) Of course, I had to respond. Jason: I'm sorry to hear you've been screaming for years--you must be very hoarse. I believe the service you're looking for is called Rhapsody . I don't know what counts as "the same scale", but they have ads on TV. I don't know why anyone would pay $12.99/month to rent music, though. I want to own my music, I don't want some company to be able to take my access away or jack up the price at a whim. Rhapsody's main market must be people who don't own much music, have a lot of electronic devices but no interest

ONE DEGREE OF SIMPSONS SEPARATION

Well, I can finally say I talked to someone who's been made into a Simpsons character. The great comic artist Daniel Clowes was on the show, along with Alan Moore and Art Spiegelman . I once called Clowes on the phone when my friend Susan and I were visiting Chicago years ago. I didn't say much, I was just so surprised that he was in the phone book and actually picked up. I also saw him at the College of Comic Book Knowledge with Peter Bagge (the Hateball tour). I believe Joey Waronker was the drummer for R.E.M. when they were on the Simpsons , but they never showed the drummer's face. I think there was some contractual thing--he was never to be considered part of R.E.M., just someone who happened to be on stage while they were playing. He may have been on the Beck Futurama episode, but I'm not sure. Maybe my friend Hellbound can weigh in on this. Of course, I knew Joey from Macalester and Walt Mink , back when only a few of us were regulars at their house-basement

IS OUR LONG OBJECTIVIST NIGHTMARE FINALLY OVER?

Now that the most powerful and influential Randian of our time has somewhat repudiated his views , can we put Objectivism into the dustbin of history along with Communism? I mean, just because you thought that scene of a rebel architect ravishing a socialite on the top of a tall building was hot when you were 20, should you base your whole political belief system on it? Two Girls Fat and Thin was good, though.
