Time™ Scrapes Bottom of Barrel

I used to care about who'd grace the cover of Time Magazine's Man (Person) of the Year issue. It used to be World 'Leaders' or people who accomplished something monumental... Occasionally it was bestowed upon some vague concept like "Endangered Earth" (1988) or a demographic like "American Broads" (1975) or "Cannon Fodder and Hippies" (1966). Now they finally got around to recognizing yours truly. Unfortunately, I've got plenty of company...

Steven F*nk
, for instance, this week's host, for starters.

I for one am not feeling that Disney® sh*t. Give me someone who cured a disease or something (starting with that f*cked up acronym that killed my mom), not some botard attention seeker on YouTube.

Stop by Funk-man of the Year's Serenade in Green blog. Give him some props, or better yet, who'd make a better choice? My second vote goes to this freak right here....

What an accomplishment. Really.

I'd vote for that freak. It takes a lot of courage and strength to do a Kate Bush impersonation (and do it well) And even though Kate Bush is on my favorite Christmas album, she makes Grace Jones look normal.

Great choices!

Here from Michele's today!

I think you have a glorious career ahead of you as an editor at Time.

I think their choice this year reflects how irrelevant the newsmagazine genre has become. The editors are so afraid of taking a stand that they end up taking none. Yawn.

Seriously. That is crap.
