lots of things

All five of you who stop by here each day may think I've forgotten about this website. Not true.

However in the almost 5 years I've had this here thing, I've never had even 1/100th of the attention all six of us (Aaron, Allah, Jeff, Noel, Steve and I) have had over at Huffington's Toast.

So for the near future, while we are getting noticed -- my attention will be focused there at HT. That's not to say Moxie will be more neglected than usual. You all know I ignore this website 4 out 7 days a week anyway. Nothing will change.

Humor and satire have a different market than news bloggers. That is something I've struggled with and is also why Huffington's Toast is so rewarding. The absurd is a hard sell and writing it makes getting noticed even tougher. This of course is ridiculous, because the key to happiness is being able to laugh at the world and ourselves. Maybe more on this in another post, I've digressed.

So here are some things to check out, besides the Toast.

- Marc Weisblott is blogging again!
- Andrew Breitbart wrote a great column for the Weekly Standard.
- Val Prieto is live blogging from the Cuba Nostalgia Convention this weekend.
- John at Powerline is excited (no pun intended) about the Miss Universe pageant, and has some pretty pictures posted for your enjoyment.
- Ann Althouse will go and see the new Star Wars movie AND blog about it, if someone pays her 500 dollars.
- Andrea Harris calls the Star Wars franchise "a frigging pseudo-religious cult for people too lazy and childish to deal with a real church." And her post just gets better from there.

So, as they say my VRWC friends -- until Monday...

UPDATE: I am damn proud of all five referrals I can offer to those I graciously choose to link. Do me a favor -- make a liberal die a little inside and ACTAULLY click on the links. We will all be better off.

Six I say! I will ALWAYS come to this site everyday (almost) as long as my sweey Moxie is the Hostess (with the mostess)

I heart U Moxie.

And in case you`re too you to understand plain english here`s a translation.

I come here all the time Mox. Ever since I first saw you on Dennis Miller's show. Loved seeing a beautiful woman prove me wrong. I just assumed you were a liberal and then...

No way I am here more than say...2 or 3 times a day.

This Liberal hopes your blog doesn't go away.

.......not only that, but as of this writing I havn't been back to the toast since you outed you. Nonetheless I am aware (somehow) that their hasn't been a new comment posted on M's super site in better than 24 hours. Is it possible to hijack a blog??? What about a lottery, the winner could fill in for M whilst she focuses on her new nom de' blog???

My mind is a small, small place and I'm afraid of suffocating.

Moxie, Come Back, make fun of someone here, on your own site. Give us a little Mama Chu, or, rip on Barbara Boxer's haircut, or something!

Posted by: tony at May 26, 2005 4:48 AM

I thinks Ms. Boxer is actually sporting Mama Chus' hair du. Somehow that's a comfort.
