Tron Legacy and local blogs I hate!!!



Seems to me I've been too nice to fellow bloggers as of late. I enjoy the snark directed my way because it's proof that you're thinking about me way more than I'm thinking about you . . . So, it's time to share a bit of the love/hate.

First . . .

I'd like to thank MySpyderWeb for single-handedly killing the Kansas City blogging community.

She started one of her many failed attempts at a blogging by stealing most of the links from my blogroll and in more than a year of sporadic posts has managed only to develop a critical mass of 6 PEOPLE AT A BLOGGER MEETUP!!!!

Amazing!!! One white women and about a dozen cliquish 30 and 40 somethings in Kansas City took the most powerful form of personal communication developed in a generation and have used it only to find drinking buddies and screw fat chicks . . . I guess that's cool but it's probably why facebook is so much more popular than people actually using the Internet to express a thought.

The sad fact of it all is that most newsies don't have to worry about competition from the Internet because most online denizens in Kansas City don't have anything to say.

It gets worse . . .

The D Rules on Twitter
. . . This douchebag has composed nearly 9,055 "tweets" (ugh) for only 230 followers. I have more than twice that many "followers" (ugh) checking out the TKC Twitter and it's just an afterthought. His efforts on the Internet really are the equivalent of a tree falling in the woods with no one to hear.

Even worser still . . .

In secret and like a coward The Hip Suburban White Guy (I know) talks smack about TKC . . . Which is kind of sad because he used to troll this blog a few years ago for about a half a year.

Check out his latest post, I'm calling it:

DIARY OF A DOUCHE BAG!!!

It has all the key elements of a douche missive . . . Older guy hitting on younger C-list white chick who probably has some kind of self-esteem issues. There are notes on the Fringe Festival and links to local places to eat. It's like a formula for you middle-class suburbanites who mistakenly think that voting for Obama makes everything right.

All of the Kansas City bloggers make the Internet worthless in this town.

They could do better . . . But they won't . . . These folks and anyone who reads them are simply the living embodiment of the fact that white privilege makes the world a horrible place.

On the bright side . . .

The trailer for "Tron Legacy" looks amazing. It's the kind of thing I'd like to share with my friends online if I had any.

The Tron Legacy/Micheal Jackson "Beat It" mashup is even better.

Again, this kind of stuff would be sweet to share with buddies I've made online but that kind of thing has been denied to me and most other minorities in the blogosphere because of the inherent racism of the local blogging clique and their refusal to deal with most minorities on the level of anything other than a mascot or a token . . . And that fact is why their bloggy club is mostly just a place for old guys to screw fat chicks . . . Which, again, sounds fun and I'm really just jealous I don't get invited more often.

Why don't you just call out Dan Ryan by name here?

The least you can do is do what WE do. When you troll other blogs for ideas, comment on THEIR blogs. Increase THEIR readership, not just yours!

It's the right thing to do! It's why I write responses HERE. Even my weird ideas make your blog more interesting. Now instead of ignoring all but your supporters, join the community instead of just trying to BE the community!

Dude! Thank you soooooo much for continuing to read my blog! It means so much to me! Hugs!!!!

You stupid bitch. You're obviously reading Tony too. Vain bloggers like you and Tony should really just fuck off and leave writing to those who have talent.

Fucking idiots all of you.

Radioman,

I don't think you know how blogs work. I wouldn't have visited Hip Suburban White Guy if Tony hadn't linked it. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess I'm not the only person who reads TKC on a regular basis and doesn't agree with everything Tony writes. Not everyone who clicks on that link is going to agree with Tony's assessment of it as the Diary of a Douchebag. Tony knows that. If there's one thing Tony can't be fairly accused of it's not promoting local bloggers.

Geez. You don't even know what "trolling" means in a blogging context.

And "cool post" comments are nice for the blogger to read, but they create a community of warm fuzzies, not ideas. I could go on in detail about the conflict illustrated by your response, but this is still a joke blog and you're kind of dumb.

Dude can I get a link off the word token?

MoxieMamaKC said...

Tsk, tsk, Tony...such nastiness! I agree with Sophia. You are one of, if not the biggest, promoters of local blogs. I freely admit to benefitting from your links to my page in regards to readership.

However, it's disappointing to see you tearing down bloggers in a way like this. If you have a beef with them, have it out with them, but don't diss the whole blog community.

A sad fact of the matter is that there doesn't seem to be a lot of minority bloggers in KC (or I've never run across many)and I'm not sure why.

How about putting together a list of your top 10 favorite minority bloggers in KC? Enlighten the rest of us "white people of priviledge"? I'm always looking for new and interesting voices. I know I'd read them and I think you would be surprised to see how many of us would be supportive of them.

Just a thought...

The only 'minority' blogger Tony respects is Alonzo masturbatory fantasy of a myspace page.

TKC never fails to smack the local KC bloggers into a frenzy of self defense on their own blogs. The blogs they pontificate on being 'real' and 'fair' when in real life they are much more biggoted and two-faced than TKC. It's that TKC has the balls to call things on how he see's it. If any of you dare replied to those he listed and their friends 'blog roll' your reply would be summarily deleted. They don't like any opinions different from their own.

Keep up the good work T.
