New World Order

The times they are a-changin’ as Kevin Dillon sang on Entourage. As much as we try to cling to the past, we must sometimes set something we love free and then drink ourselves blind until we pass out in a gutter.

That is why I have said goodbye to ramblingsandrumblings.wordpress.com. I chose that blog address when I was a wee lass of 3- back in August, and felt that I had so much rambling rumblings to give to the world. Six seconds after I chose that name and purchased the upgrade to get rid of the wordpress part, I realized I fucking hated that blog name. You don’t ramble or rumble. Who do you think you are? Some banjo player on Prairie Home Companion? I thought angrily to myself, It would be more appropriate to call this the antiramblingsandrumblings.wordpress.com, you stupid jerk. . . awww, I didn’t mean it. Don’t turn away from me, you know I get mean when I drink mimosas.  I removed the sock puppet I use when I talk to myself and decided to live with the stoopid name.

Until today.

Today I was thinking how much I hate how my blog looks and hate how it talks back to me, and then storms out of the house dressed like a hussy. I wanted to make a change–for once in my life. Gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference, gonna make it right. (Too soon?)

So I figured out how to change my address, and incidentally figured out how to finally get rid of the wordpress in ramblingsandrumblings.com for a blissful 10 minutes. Best $25 I ever spent!

This blog will now be known as speaker7.wordpress.com. This is nearly as exciting as when Madonna renamed herself BulgingArmMonster or when the WB network changed its name to something I can’t remember.

I’ll take some questions.

From what I can gather no one cares. 

Is that a question?

No.

Oh.

Will having Howard Stern as a host on X-Factor make it watchable?

No.

Which Sex and the City character are you most like?

Howard Stern.

I see you added some drawings to the masthead. 

Yes. Thanks for noticing. Most of these comments have been off the mark.

Well my question is did your toddler son draw them? And if yes, does he have a developmental disability when it comes to drawing? 

I think we’ll stop the questions for now.

Welcome to the future everyone. For your viewing pleasure:

Also contains my dreams, youth and Oscar the Grouch.

    1. It worked for P Diddy or Puff Daddy or Puffy Diddly-doo, I’m not sure what the current incarnation is. I will always write about Matt Lauer especially when he wears glasses.

  1. Someday I will complete my blog redesign and add a blogroll. When I do, may I refer to your blog as “The Blog Formerly Known as Ramblings and Rumblings?” I like my blog title, but no one knows what it means and when you have to explain something…

    1. That would be fine. You can also use this symbol §. Means the same thing. I looked up logy and it means dull so maybe that’s why people don’t get it because your blog is the opposite of dull.

  2. Whatever you call yourself, I will follow in your dust. I promise. That’ll be me behind you, coughing.

    Picking a blog name is the hardest damn thing; picking my son’s name was a snap in comparison. (I fared less well with my blog and with one of my dogs whose name was Goliath, after the guardian angel dog Goliath of Davey and Goliath fame. Bad choice. Really bad choice.)

    Speaker7 is wonderful. But who are the other 6?

    1. Morgan left to spend more time boring people on his CNN show according to his boring press release that I was too bored to read. Thanks for the link. I had no idea the zombie apocalypse was coming so soon. I need to buy some beer.

    1. They said Speakers 1-6 were never to be used or mentioned. Who “they” are, I can’t say. They talk to me via speaker phone that incidentally is in the shape of a 7.

    1. Thank you. That’s the vibe I was going for. Ramblings and Rumblings just seemed too friendly like hey sit down with your guitar and jam with me for a few hours.

  3. I think this change is even better than when New Coke tasted like shit and they brought back Coca-Cola Classic and made more money than a bunch of billionaires could ever dream to make using a failed marketing plan. But maybe not quite as good as when Prince changed his name to an infertility symbol. In conclusion, I’m thrilled!

    The masthead is fantastic and I hope it can only mean that you will do more drawings going forward.

    Long live Speaker7.

    1. Do you think there’s a chance this change will make me a billion dollars? I’ve kind of always wanted to swim in a pool full of hundred dollar bills and I think if I had a billion of them, I could swing it.

      1. Yes, absolutely. You’ll make trillions if not gazillions or dandelions. And you’ve inspired me to finally change my masthead. The tagline anyway. The word “parenting” in there has especially grated on me since two seconds after I began my blog. I think I’ll just tweak it a tiny bit like, “When Soda and Pop Rocks Collide and Then Your Head Explodes and I Hate Taglines”.

  4. I think this might be the biggest mistake of your career. I liked numbling and ranglings and am thinking of using that name now if it’s okay with you. I don’t understand what Speaker 7 means and it makes me feel kind of scared. So I want the old masthead back please now.

  5. I think it’s funny you called this a “career”.

    As much as I pity your fear of the new world order, I cannot go back to the name of numbly ramblesfishhead. It is yours to have, and can be used as the title of your next bathroom book.

  6. I love the picture and caption. It made me audibly snort. My husband is sleeping near, so any audible noise is remarkable, since I attempt to keep this at a minimal during such a time.
