One Hit Wonder

1. Sirippe Varalai! Seriously, he needs new themes outside of (a) mentioning his wife/kerala/regional stereoptypes often (b) Sree Shant/cant type aruvai jokes. He has written only one truly funny post.

2. Travails of any-Indian blogging male is that the longer/more frequently one attempts humor, the more labored/predictable one's humor/language usage becomes.

3. Factual error in that article. Kapil Dev retired in 1994. Late 90s he was a coach.

4. I am sceptical about long-term bloggers writing books because (a) see #2 above (b) they've exhausted most of their tricks in blogs, and (c) they lost their mojo.

No clue or comment on the first three points, but completely agree on the last.
Though I must ask this wrt #2 - Why just "male"? female bloggers fall through some divine tomato truck from the heavens eh?

We (and am humbly including me as a long-time(r) blogger) can be whatever, but akshayapaatram we ain't.

rads,

i am guessing #2 was a tongue and cheek reference to the "only funny post" that Sidin wrote called "travails of single south indian male"

I agree. Some of the "humor" blogs that I have been following have been losing their 'mojo' and they kind of follow a pattern , much like the bollywood formula.

Holds good for you also.

venkat,

you continue to make the most obvious and most mediocre observations on this blog. I think this is the 5th or 6th comment in from you saying that something i wrote applies to me also. like i would have never thought of it while writing the posts.

Not that I am surprised given my knowledge of your (lack of)intellect.

Venkat said...

You would have thought about it, but it doesn't seem to make you stop blogging. I visit your blog

1. to see if you can get more stupid than before

2. to get entertained by the jaalras in the comments section.


I think I have commented only twice or thrice before.

Hawkeye said...

you forgot #3

3. to leave dumb comments pointing out that my opinions and observations are based on my own experiences.

venkat,

adhaavdhu if anybody disagrees with you avangellam jalraa?

isn't this the oldest tactic by all trolls in the blog world ?

p.s: I am not offended. But how long will trolls keep trying this 'jaalra' stuff?

I don't know. I don't follow many blogs.


Hawkeye - Correction. Leaving comments pointing out that your opinions are just stupid interpretations of your experiences.

you mean to say you have somehow missed the millions of vitriolic comments this blog gets. wow! I was right to begin with. You categorise everybody who disagrees with you as jalraa.

btw: on the subject of mediocre and obvious

This comment

"Holds good for you also"

contradicts

" Leaving comments pointing out that your opinions are just stupid interpretations of your experiences."

if the interpretations are stupid then it does not hold good for hawkeye and vice versa! I think this is what you had missed all along.

p.s: I am 'famous blogger' and get same type comments in my blog hence the angst.

A: They suck.
B: You suck too.

At this point if A says B sucks, who sucks more?

Can I hug you?

Am sick of the ref to the missus, and the completely contrived sense of humour....
