Join the PozIntern: The International Carnival of Pozitivities


Dear Mortals,

Recently the Spin Cycle had the signal honour of being the first contributing blog to the premier edition of the International Carnival of Pozitivities. ICP is a blog carnival, an event where one blog hosts a series of articles on a set topic. ICP was founded by Ron Hudson, a good friend of the Spin Cycle and one of our Preferred Perverts.

Now here's the thing. You think writing a blog like the Spin Cycle is easy? Not a bit of it. We go to great lengths to shove our righteous opinions down your ungrateful throats. Wit, grace and style are all on offer here and it's about time you lazy cunts started doing some work.

Oh yeah, it's easy for the members of the Spin Cycle Commentariat to post their pedestrian views on the utterly astounding efforts that your intrepid Bloggers undertake in this place. It's a whole different thing to produce and original piece of work in the way that myself, the Depraved Bucko, Red Ronnie the Socialist Sissy Fag and the Glorious Herman do.

The First ICP has been an enormous success. Ron Hudson has done amazing work and I am greatly honoured to have had one of my articles included in that august company.

So here's what you've gotta do. Visit the website for the International Carnival of Pozitivities and check out the requirements. Create a blog for yourself if you don't already have one and pen an article on AIDS. You don't have to be HIV positive to get your oar in the water on this one, so I don't want to hear any bitching from you spineless shits. You just have to be able to discourse on the subject of HIV. It affects ALL OF US, even the dumb fuck breeder filth who think they've gotten away with it.

Carnivals like ICP are a great opportunity for bloggers to expand their reading audience. Sure, you probably won't end up as successful as the Spin Cycle (10,000+ hits in the last 6 weeks so suck on that Meghan, you stupid slut) but you'll have done something worthwhile.

For a change.

IN SOLIDARITY

I assume, Mr. Matty the Damned, that you knew the letter was satire. Which, of course, makes your comment difficult to interpret. Given the bent of your page, I find it difficult to believe you didn't at least agree with some of the commentary on my page. With that said, maybe you just didn't like the manner in which my opinions were expressed. Fair enough.

Or maybe you just wanted me to look at your page. I did. You win. You have now even more eyeballs for the blog awarder givers to count. Oh, and I even liked the gonzo-fuck-you style.

I'll be recommending your page to a few friends who are likely to find it more stimulating than I do.

Mr Rideout,

That was satire? Normally satire contains one or more of the devices of wit. Irony is a neat one to try. You never know, you might be good at it.

Or maybe you just wanted me to look at your page. I did. You win. You have now even more eyeballs for the blog awarder givers to count. Oh, and I even liked the gonzo-fuck-you style.

Honey lots of people read this blog, you're not special. But it's gratifying to learn that I got under your skin, and I know I did otherwise you wouldn't have posted your prissy comment. I still think you're a self righteous twat. Just because Dubya gives you the irrits doesn't mean you're going win my approval, either. Gonzo? How cute, you're familiar with Hunter S. Thompson. It's so validating to have an intellectual type visit us.

I'll be recommending your page to a few friends who are likely to find it more stimulating than I do.

Ouch! I've been dissed in a back handed passive-aggressive manner! How ever will I cope?

Thanks, Matty, for the promo! ICP is still taking submissions for the August issue until the second of the month. I hope your readers will consider pitching in to keep us going.

Take care, my friend.

I found some of your ideas very exciting. And maybe you want to have a gay friend?
