Bazookaluca's Greatest Hits

According to an article in the New York Times, only 5% of blogs are kept up regularly.

I've managed to maintain this blog for nearly five years now.

So, take that, unfavorable statistical data!

What started on MySpace as nothing more than a place to jot down daily footnotes and random observations to an audience of a few friends, has grown a bit in scope and purpose over the years (if not in actual traffic.)

My very first entry was the track listing of a mix CD I had made that day.

Those were the days... no wit, no pics, no bothersome multimedia embeds; just plain and factual text—unadorned and austere.

Of course, that eventually got a bit boring, so I started writing about more pertinent topics, such as culturally insensitive Olive Garden commercials, ninja-themed game shows, and/or finding the worst MySpace band ever. You know, critical investigative journalism.

So, as a sort of half-assed retrospective, I dug up what I consider some of the finer moments of bazookaluca (what's been published on Blogger, anyway) to share with you. I also have links to these on the right, below the features menu, and will leave them up for a bit. I hope you'll take the time to read through them and leave a few words if you feel compelled. I always appreciate your comments.

Thanks for reading.
