[bloggage] 100 Posts For The Month of Blogtober

Posted in bloggage, blogtober, Samuel John Klein, ZehnKatzen on October 31, 2007 by Samuel John Klein Portlandiensis

1075. Yeah, Blogtober is a craptactularly bad word (as is craptactular, actually), but never mind that. A meme is a meme.

This month even I’m surprised at the number of posts I’ve come up with and things to talk about (and photos to share and general blog fun to have). It’s been a big month in quite a few other ways, blogwise, too. I think I’ve gotten more visitors in a single month than any other single month so far, and more participation too, not to mention at least a few new linkers who are so cool my teeth are hurting now.

Since I actually seem to have developed a readership, I find I’m really starting to focus on what moves me, and that seems to attract more readers. Design is fun. Maps are fun. Portland rocks (Seattle, you’ll just have to get over yourself for not getting StreetViewed by Google first. C’est la guerre, mon cher).

As a celebration of Blogtober (sorry, I can’t stop using that word. Shoot me, shoot me now), I’m sharing a new fave over at YouTube. Now, we all love talking cat videos. There’s a whole scad of them. I have here what I think everyone will agree is the last Talking Cat Video anyone will ever need:

I agree. Giamatti really deserved that nomination. And I’m not drinking any more merlot.

Ah, well, on to NaBloPoMo then.

[or_politik] No On 49’ers Can’t Hold Own In Debate

Posted in land_use, Oregon, or_politik on October 31, 2007 by Samuel John Klein Portlandiensis

1074. As Brian Hines notes here. Spanked ’em and sent ’em home without breaking a sweat.

And while you’re over at Hines Sight, read about why Measure 37 is bad policy and damaging to Oregon. If you’re really hung up on property rights, ask yourself why people like OIA, who loudly herald “personal property rights” and the much abused “will of the voter”, don’t seem to give a damn when neighbors property values and livability gets killed when a big development goes in where one shouldn’t go.

If they’d change their name to “Resenful Oregonians In Action To Get Ours And Keep It”, that’d be closer to the truth–but it doesn’t scan well.

I’m not crying for them. If they can’t lie to you on the debate stage, they’ll always have those risible commercials.
