Famous Things

Social Commentary, or Just a Dog's Opinion? - New York Times:
"Animal Crossing promotes piracy," declared xandertheblue at a LiveJournal site, directly above an image captured from the game in midplay (snipurl.com/xandertheblue).

It's neat when one of your friends gets mentioned in the New York Times. I think part of the attraction of blogging is that every now and then you see a name dropped and think, "Hey, I know that guy!"

The closest I ever got to the mainstream media was when I was writing for Ex-gay Watch (which is a fantastic blog, by the way, and highly reccomended) during the latter portions of the Zach story. Certain CNN shows and other MSM outlets were looking to pick up a little exgay action, and the blog got a fair amount of calls from reporters and other media folks.

Anyway, congrats to Xander for making the NYT.
