Here… Drink Mine Instead!
I love Hawksrock Gunawan. He is sort of like my personal idol at the moment. Who else could take an event he knew next to nothing about, be annoyed with it even though he’s so over SL in general, show no regard for people he admittedly has on his ‘friend’s’ list, spout off some propaganda about hypocrisy (oh the irony!), lure people to his post through that ever-useful plurk as a marketing tool, get them to read, and then get like 30 days, tops, worth of free publicity from it with everybody singing his praises. I think this represents the best in megalomaniacal (I might have made that word up) self-aggrandizing (I might have made that word up too!) soapboxing genius I have seen in a while.
I have no doubt that hawks is a super nice sweet individual who wanted to do something for the blog-reading community. I am proud to have him on my friends list, though I’d be shocked to actually get an IM from him. I also am pretty sure that he knew that giving the people out there who read stuff something to go :O at was going to score him some great clicks. I hope he doesn’t expect there to be a Hawksrock Gunawan is the awesomest person in the universe day, but I do think he expected this gesture to gain some negative feedback, because I am of the opinion that whatever faults you wanna throw at Hawks he has proven time and again that he has big smarts and an even bigger spoon.
I am however just a little bit shocked and dismayed at how quickly our band of blog readers out there are ready to line up like ducks at the shooting gallery. They realized that if they tried to express a little involvement and levity and let’s say admitted they liked something everyone else did (HEAVEN FORBID) that they would quickly be banned from commenting on the Rev and miss out on all the free dramz. Hawks says dance, they dance like mofo’s. The same can be said of the quick rapid rise of Hawksrock Gunawan to take up Hawksrock Gunawan is the supreme god of the we’re-not-sheep-looket-satirez-i-has-it philanthropic association day, all because he took time to share his uninformed opinion? To my knowledge Hawks was pretty cool before this whole venture, but now that they scored drama he is EVERYWHERE! Lord knows we wanna make sure this becomes an annual event, and maybe even other people will take up the cause of appreciating our band of hard working-hound-your-gf-to-edit-your-vid-for-you, overuse flowery adjectives and hopefully remmy the little people bloggers out there. Isn’t it ironic, dontcha think?
