(Note to literalists: the Watched column presently contains only a smattering of 'warblogs' because the facilitator of the template-change--Dr. Menlo--is not very familiar with them, and will be adding more as they are sent to him. Also, this blog may contain areas of allusion, satire, subtext, context and possibly even a dash of the surreal: wannabe lit-crits beware.)

WARBLOGGER WATCH


Tuesday, April 30, 2002

 

The anti-warblogger network (axis?) of terror is widening. I introduce you to Roy Edroso, who bombs the competition with intelligence and wit over at Crank Watch. Here's some great mockery of that apple of every warblogger's eye, Captain Lileks:

"I hate to keep harping on Jim Lileks, here and at my own site, but I can't help it. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune columnist is in so many ways the perfect poster boy for the warbloggers--a well-spoken, suburban pop culture nerd who, when roused by liberals, becomes a truculent and incoherent jingo--that I feel a journalistic duty to stay on his case. With luck, and a few more mood swings, Lileks may turn out to be my GI Joe, or Gibson Girl--a character that becomes a symbol for the age that yielded him or her up, and his or her observer's fortune."

"A few days ago Lileks watched that 9/11 TV thing (on HDTV with surround sound, one supposes) and commented on the sound of the falling bodies at the World Trade Center: 'Who, having seen the bodies hit, could ever sleep again without hearing the sound? How many good men are going to eat the barrel in six years just to make the sound stop?'
That second sentence is classic Lileks--Xbox-addicted fanboy turns into Robert Mitchum, talks of eating the barrel! (Hands shaking, the rummy croaks, 'I was a good man once--did my part for the war, beat up Ted Rall--then I saw that TV show...' Runs his hands through his hair, screams: "I can't get it out of my head!") But the first sentence is, for us true fans, even more interesting: It fetches the image of Lileks, bedded down for the night, haunted by a self-generated serenade of watermelons striking concrete at high speed.
The resulting sleeplessness has had an effect, it seems. In a more recent web entry, Lileks states the following: 'It's been snowing for eleven hours - and the skies just lit up with a flash of lightning. Followed by, predictably, thunder. In a snowstorm. The flash gave me a sudden spasm of duckencoveritis before I realized it is highly unlikely anyone will nuke Minneapolis...' One pauses to wonder, does anyone else in Minneapolis over the age of five mistake thunderstorms for nuclear explosions?"

Yes!
- Eric A. Blair
