    Bloggers always seem to feel the need to put some cute little tag-line next to the title of their blogs. It stinks of pretense to me, especially in this case.

    Check out the "Categories" links on the left hand side. That is evidence enough for me.

    It's actually a built-in feature of the WordPress blogware, so most people probably just fill it in by default, thinking they have to or should.

    That's what I did. :shifty:

    Well you figured it out, didn't'cha? That shit's been up there for six months. C'mon. The blog even gives you ones you've used in the past and invites you to check them again!

    :shock:

    You're talking about the (continuing) categories snafu, right?

    I was just on about the tag-line under the blog title... :?

    (The post categories thing always seemed fairly intuitive to me. You have to be really fucking inept to screw it up the way he has. This is why I'm completely confident that I'm at least more intelligent than he is. :lol: )

    Tag-line all in lower case: that's another built-in feature of many (most?) WordPress styles, not a KJA-specific snafu. :)
    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

    Bah, yours is fine. At least it's humorous.

    What bugs me are the overly cutesy ones like Keith's. "I write, I make stuff up" or "a glimpse into my little world" and shit like that. :puke:

    Keith should try a colonoscopy so we don't have too :)

    (did any one clicky that pic I posted? Just in case someone wonders why I start about that)

    The best part is that Keith doesn't get how utterly STUPID his tag-line is.

    1. It's from a contemporary U.S. advertising campaign ("We work hard, so you don't have to"), showing, once again, that TheKevin has absolutely no imagination. That's why his books feature shopping malls on other planets; he is incapable of imagining anything that he hasn't already seen and is comfortable with.

    2. Wouldn't his readers WANT to adventure? Isn't that why they are reading speculative fiction in the first place? Isn't the entire concept of "adventure" an attractive one to most people?

    So here's Spanky telling his drones that they don't get to do this. He'll take care of it for them, so "they don't have to."

    Again, because he is a stupid, stupid man. Who has attracted exactly the type of idiot fans he deserves.

    I thought I'd heard that before, but couldn't google proof(yeah google failed me...)

    It's for a bathroom cleaner, believe it or not. Which sort of makes Keith's stealing the line even funnier ...

    If that douche hasn't already gotten around to writing some self-serving autobiography, he could totally call it ""Adventure Hard."

    Or...
