microecos: Hey dude.
Dr. Neil Patrick Kelley: ¿sup?
m.e.: been awhile!
me: no doubt. did that video though.
m.e.: whatcha been up to?
m.e.: big ups. and you had a kid right?
me: Yes! She’s a year old already.
m.e.: explains the slow down around here, I guess.
me: Oh. yeah. sorry. Have you seen my Tumblr?
m.e.: um. yeah. how much of that is “you”.
me: depends. sometimes I append lengthy comments to things there, so I “engage” with the “material” at least.
m.e.: I don’t think that’s how Tumblr works. Anyway with the theme you are using you can’t even see that stuff.
me: you’re probably right.
me: I was thinking though, now that I’ve got that out of the way I can start reblogging in earnest. I mean, resume blogging. Original stuff.
m.e.: well you’ve got the microecos.com domain so you need to do something with that.
me: Ugh. that sounds like so much work.
m.e.: love “Dust. Wind. Dude.” though. Classic shit.
m.e.: can I level with you?
me: of course!
m.e.: I don’t know. I’m not sure that I can get back to that, *level*. What do people even blog about NOW?
me: Shut up, you read 172 blogs religiously.
me: You know that blog, Ichthyosaurs: a day in the life?
m.e.: Love it.
me: I did this:
m.e.: Ease up on the distortion. Everyone knows you can’t sing. But you are stomping on your jokes there.
m.e.: “Nobody was really sure/If she was a stem-archosauromorph?”
m.e.: I like how you break the rhyme there. Very Sir A. L. Webster. But breviceps is still in Ichthyosaurus right?
me: I think I meant <i>jancieps</i>. Ugh. how did I pass?
m.e.: Generosity. I don’t think we’re in an html interface.
me: This seems indulgent.
yo: You’ve still got the 15 valid thalattosaur species to blog about right? Everyone’s waiting.
i: depends how you count, <i>Anshunsaurus</i> is a little volatile … ?<i>Blezingeria</i>
m.e.: Dude. Markup.
me: Dude. Marker’s Mark. RIP:
m.e.: Nobody will watch that. WordPress enforces a strict 1 video embed only policy. To preserve people’s sanity.
me: Good for them. ALL of them.
m.e.: I was going to title the one about the North American species: “North American Scum”
mi: I get it, they’re all so fragmentary. Agkistrognathus is pretty sick though, not nearly enough play in the liberal media.
m.e.: Whooping Cranes nearby. Maybe 10 klicks.
me: Private property. Can’t see them.
m.e.: Good for them. ALL of them.
me: Is the Marker video working now?
