With a tinge of sadness

I was feeling a bit nostalgic and stopped at Acidman's blog this morning. If you have been around blogging for a very long time then you know about "Gut Rumbles".

I read some random entries. I wish I hadn't . Re-reading his posts with the benefit of knowing the future was bittersweet. Today, you can almost see the demons chewing away at his joie d.vivre.  I suppose, had he lived, Rob would have slowly abandoned regular posting at his blog and migrated his wit to the book of face. I imagine that is what has happened to so many of the great ones. That or they just got bored with doing this weird hobby for ten or fifteen years.

I think he might have helped keep blogging alive a bit longer.

FB for Acidman, sorry I don't see it. He would have been banned in record time. Most of the old Bloggers are doing Twitter for whatever reason. Then again some of my favorites are doing the dirt nap, sucks to get old.

Have never been, nor shall I ever be, on the book of face.
