Obsessive Blogging: A Cautionary Tale Of Width and DepthPosted: October 21, 2013
As we watch the decline of Little Green Footballs, we realize the Diary Of Daedalus follows the same path by default. That doesn’t mean we are going to quit kicking a dead horse. As long as the Magical Jazzy Ponytail keeps posting teh stoopids, we’re gonna keep highlighting teh stoopids because it’s so easy and so much fun.
At the intersection of Vista del Sol and Camino del Encanto in Palos Verdes, California, a quiet seaside community with million dollar 1,400 sf. homes, awesome happened.
In 2000, a lone bicyclist turned left and rode downhill toward the shore. A stalker positioned at that exact intersection snapped at least two photos of our boy Charles Johnson. He was so proud of the pics that he posted them on LGF to proclaim to the world:
“I AM CHARLES, AND I AM A BICYCLIST!”
“This photo is from a training ride in Palos Verdes; just starting to lean into the turn, pressing that outside foot down hard on the pedal. Oh, and don’t send me email telling me to wear a helmet; I never ride without my helmet now.”
So The Galatron set up a tripod to capture The Galatron’s awesome as The Galatron pressed that outside foot down hard, eh? Meh. We don’t really care about your sensitive flannel ego, Charles, but what we’d like to know is how, in 10 years and 40,000 posts later, you went from that to this:
Rock on, brah. We love ya man, and keep pressing that outside foot down hard.
