Magick River in the Malay Mail again!



The Malay Mail featured me on page 16 today in its "CyberSpot" section! The full article is no longer online, unfortunately - but the section quoting me I reproduce below...

The blogging has actually become a full-time unpaid job - the only reward being the number of new friends it has attracted, most of whom I have yet to meet, though a few have already visited or made plans to visit. Truth be told the blogging friends seem to be edging out the unblogging ones - who for some reason tend to be more rigid and stuck in old thought patterns and behavior loops. Which makes me seriously suspect that prolonged bombardment with stray electrons from the computer screen may cause strange mutations in the bloggers' brains - perhaps evolutionarily useful ones :-)

For 2009, a radical change of government will hopefully relieve us from dreary and repetitious BN-bashing. Most of us would like to take a break from political commentary - but we can only do that when our mission to liberate this country from moronism and tyranny is accomplished.

A blog that I recommend? Walski's MyAsylum is among the Most Intelligent, Literate & Technically Sophisticated Blogs on Planet Earth. And it's 100% Made-in-Malaysia!


[Thanks, Sheila Rahman, for the friendly plug! :-)]

Bro Antares

Woohoo! Great stuff. Can get your autograph-ah? :D My sincere felicitations to you for a well-deserved profile of you. You are truly a psychedelic and passionate blogger.

We were first stung by a certain ominous sting in anti-anwar ktemoc's blog from a certain long haired gypsy looking guy ( which we were to later find out ) leading us to aweringly dissect the mother of all rapes as described in harrowing ghostlike detail which should have nailed a certain pinky lips and his erstwhile cohorts to at least 49 years behind bars or death by hanging but alas which didn't and now understood where the impressive literary bazooka storytelling streak came from. Its no surprise at all that you will soon be featured again. Here's a well deserved pat on the back from yes , another bunch of mutated bloggers

I've been reading Magick River for quite sometime now.. :)

Congrats man! Yes, let's hope (quoting you) "this year will hopefully relieve us from dreary and repetitious BN-bashing. Most of us would like to take a break from political commentary."

Is it tiring to be churning out the same 'diarhea' religiously.

ps: I love MyAsylum!

Congratulations Antares. Good to know you were featured in Cyberspot.

This blogger has indeed "suffered prolonged bombardment with stray electrons from the computer screen" due to distrust of the MSM - in the US. Whether I am less rigid in my thoughts is left to be judged. :)

Cheers!
