Johnny Lotsafriends [Jun. 5th, 2004|10:15 am]
Tony Grist
I was hippety-hopping around the LJ universe and I came across a man with 1,940 friends.

Staggers back in amazement. 1,940 friends! How come I don't have 1,940 friends?

I snouted around and found the answer. The reason I don't have 1,940 friends is because I don't write graphic novels.

Mind you (admire my eyes, they're as green as glass) most of those friends aren't real friends. They're people who have befriended him. His list of people he's befriended is no longer than mine.

Imagine if he did befriend all those 1,940 people back; he'd spend so much time keeping up with their 1,940 LJs that he'd never get to write his tasty little posts about drinking dead men's sperm and the like.

Each of his posts carries a nifty little copyright notice. He's afraid someone might steal them. What- even the one about how he's been updating his computer? Yes, even that one.

That wouldn't be Alan Moore, would it?

Um, no. Alan has a lot more hair that Johnny.

Hrm. Guess I don't know which Johnny.

Besides, now that I think about it, Mr. Moore would be more likely to have hundreds _minions_ than friends I think :-)

warren ellis?

his post about the tumor is hilarious.

the copyright notice, though, seems a bit overdone. it's a live journal. does any of this even count as real writing? it's just thoughts translated into ones and zeros and packed off to the internet, right?

i mean, unless it's copyrighted.

Re: warren ellis?

I couldn't possibly comment.

Like I said, I'm just terribly, terribly jealous.....

Re: warren ellis?

well perhaps you should write graphic novels. then you could have 1,940 friends too.

most of them would probably be geeks, though.

Re: warren ellis?

No problem. I love geeks.

Now I just need someone to draw the pictures.

Oh, and an agent and a publisher and some inspiration.

Hey, I've got an idea: why don't I just call the whole thing off?
