Re: From One Culturally Disgruntled Blogger to Another (An Appeal)

Well folks, I got a response, and it's good to know I'm not a copycat or plagiarizer. This is further proof that Chez Pazienza truly understands his fans as well as the media of blogging. Something CNN should have kept in mind before they fired him. Oh well, their loss. If you like what I'm about to start writing here, or if you're just fed up with pop culture in general, go to http://www.deusexmalcontent.com/.

From: Chez Pazienza
To: Me

Michael --

Trust me, there's no reason to shove any respect in my direction. Thanks very much for all the virtual genuflection -- kind words are always nice. That said, I think it's safe to assume that airing personal opinions on pop culture -- particularly on the internet -- isn't exactly my exclusive domain, so you don't have to worry about anyone comparing you to me or anyone else. You'd need years of drug use, an immolated career and about a dozen really bad relationships behind you before I'll start drawing major parallels between the two of us.

In other words, you don't need to get my approval -- but you've got it anyway. Go with God, my son.
