So the three people who read My Little Piebald (a weekly Popbitch-esque Irish gossip mailout) have noticed I was slagged in it this week. Matt from Dublin Streets who were also crapply slagged in it told me last night. What shit digs though. Everyone knows I'm a complete knob, so you think they (and by 'they', I mean that dude called John who is behind it) could have stuck the boot in proper.
My Little Piebald wasn't venomous enough. I'm so disappointed. Why can't haters up their game these days?
All they did was quoted something boring I wrote on my blog this week and called me a "Sunday Tribune nobody". Although, clearly I wasn't a 'Sunday Tribune nobody' in the past anytime John from My Little Piebald has called me to get gossip for his mailout. BURN!
Why didn't they talk about my endless self-promotion? The shameless bias and plugging of my club night on this blog (PS: thanks so much to everyone for coming down last night, such a great buzz! Details of the epic XXXmas party next week on the SoundCheck blog this afternoon.) My clear favoritism of certain Irish bands over others? Putting that fucking annoying 'sies' thing at the end of wordsies? Attesting that I'm a serious music critic while constantly exposing my taste for shit tunes? Occasionally linking my own articles on 'articles of the day' posts - WANKER! The shit blog design? Stealing mp3 links?
I mean, come on!
It's also stupid of MLP to slag what is essentially their target audience. MLP should come up with proper gossip instead of just throwing crap digs (so John, if you want that leaked George Hook email to Newstalk staff, the real story behind the East Wall murder, rumours about more venue closures, details on how much various bars are losing, or any other salacious gossip, just give me a buzz this afternoon.)
Of course, all that I'm doing by making this post is giving My Little Piebald publicity (fuck it: subscribe to it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org). Of course I know that, but I can never let people bitching at me go by because I'm an arrogant motherfucker with too much time on my hands. EVERYONE knows that.
