When The History Of Blogs Is Written

They'll probably mention Andrew Sullivan, Matt Yglesias, Daily Kos, Glenn Reynolds, Ezra Klein, Nick Denton, Mike Arrington, etc, etc. But FLG holds out hope that true students of the medium will recognize his contributions.

If those other bloggers are more akin to Chaplin, Hitchcock, Welles, Godard, Fellini, Scorsese, Kurosawa, you get the idea, then hopefully FLG will be something like Luis Buñuel. Some sort of surreal mélange of Plato, Alexander, pirates, object sex, what FLG is currently listening to, and vicious antipathy toward NATO that nobody full comprehends, that is often painful to watch, but totally awesome.

As evidence of FLG's tremendous influence, which like that of many great artists goes largely unappreciated here in the States but not in Europe, here is Maximum Leader pointing us to Nazi object sex.

One day I came across the line "War, trade and piracy an inseparable trinity" and instantly thought... FLG!
Then I wondered... does Mephisto dig Plato? (yes, I’m guessing) Aristotle? (no, guessing) Object sex? (Fuck yeah, not guessing).

Here’s my hanging chad that F&LG’s surreal mélange will be remembered as a great influence on all Eclectics.

"War, trade and piracy an inseparable trinity" - Mephistopheles (Goethe, Faust)

I'm not quite sure how to take that Mephistopheles reminds you of me.

No.

Mephistopheles, having his finger on the pneuma that drives humans, would have been a great blogger.

Well, okay... yes. (which in no way makes you unique)
