The Pop Eye Is Five!

It was five years ago today (that's about 75 in blog years) that I thought to myself, "Hmmm, maybe other people out there would be interested in my nonsensical ramblings about unimportant shit." And I was right! For the most part, anyway.

I'm thinking that this blog will either be around at least five more years or I'll just decide to go out in a blaze of glory in about five days. Like it or not, I think the former is probably more likely. I'm too afraid that, on the day after I end my blog, something awesome will happen. Like, I don't know, all the ghosts of great musicians past return to Earth and rip Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha and The Biebs apart, Hellraiser style. And I just couldn't chance missing an opportunity to comment on that action.

Congratulations lady! I have been enjoying your pop culture missives and manifestos for a few years now, so thank you for sharing them and inspiring me as well. Keep it up!

Your post reminded me that my own blog just had its 6th birthday. Guess I better buy it some flowers and chocolates to make up for forgetting.

Happy Blog-a-versary!

Congratulations on 5 years!

I feel like a baby. I won't be 2 til October.

Oh you liar. You're worried Damon Albarn will take his shirt off and kill everyone within a fifty yard radius with his deathly white chest that casts a light brighter than the sun at noon, and you won't be there to write about it.

Awesome milestone! Congratulations. When the popcopalyse happens, you need to be there!

Heff said...

Congrats on 5 !

What REALLY cracks me up (and I've seen it more than once) is when some decides NOT to blog anymore, and THEY BLOG ABOUT THEIR DECISION !

"This will be my LAST POST. Really, I'm not kidding. I don't enjoy doing this anymore, etc, etc..."

Congratulations! I'm deeply in awe: I don't think I've even made it to a year yet!

I bow down before your awesomeness!

words...words...words... said...

Congratulations! Are you sending your blog to kindergarten?

Cormac Brown said...

Culturally-speaking, what would I ever do without you?

Seriously.

You always manage to put a smile on our faces and let's face it, you will be the lone thing keeping American Idol alive, with Simon gone and Ellen somehow not finding her niche on the show.

And we can only have our crotches burn once a month, but yours burns eternal...wait, that's not right. At any rate, as usual, other people say better than I do.

Well obviously you can never stop blogging, because you have a responsibility to your public. And we all know, if we didn't read it here, it never really happened.

Happy Blogoversary!

Soda and Candy said...

If it weren't for you, I wouldn't even know who this Lady Gahguh is.

Keep up the good work BeckEye!

PS - word ver: lurid - my favorite type of gossip!

congrats Beck! I think it's less what you write about than how you write about it, I know I wouldn't know who Lindsey Lohan was nor would I care if it wasn't delivered the way you do it. Carry on!

Gorilla Bananas said...

My blog is virtually the same age as yours. We are twins in a sense.

Scott said...

Congrats! I highly doubt I'll be making it that long.

Scope said...

Damn, Sam, Sorry I missed this post. Congrats on 5 years. I hoip you'll be around for another 5.

Billy said...

Holy crap. A 5-year-old blog practically makes you equivalent to The Old Grey Lady of newspapers. OK, maybe not quite, but that's still pretty awesome and worth a sincere congratulations. Here's to making it to six!

Sadako said...

Congrats!

Also love the Grease ref on your comments--the tell me about it, studs. Too cool for words. LOVE Grease myself and I actually recapped it on my blog not that long ago.

Sorry I'm late to the party BeckEye - happy anniversary! Love you long time. xo

BeckEye said...

Thanks to all of you for the blogoversary wishes! Even you, Veg. I'll let the Albarn-bashing slide this one time.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
