The Blogerati Files - Blamblog


This week in the Blogerati Files - Brett Lamb's "Blamblog"

Describe your blog in 10 words or less.
Sandwiches, Frogs & Dynamite.

Why did you start your blog? Blogiversary?
I birthed my blog on Thursday, March 14, 2002 because, like Christian Slater in Pump Up the Volume, I had something to say and neither the state, the church nor my high school principal were going to shut me up!

Has blogging changed you or enhanced a personality trait?
I've grown from pompous blowhard to insufferable bore ... a 26% improvement in less than four years.

Do you have a favourite post from your blog?
My first Canadian History Moment with Col. Thomas Talbot.

And the posts about the time I did alien autopsies as an art project with kids.

Who are your fav blogger(s)?
In person? The best bloggers to meet in-the-flesh are: Christie, Marc, and Maria, especially when she talks about her dating misadventures. They're genuine, bigger-than-life characters and even more entertaining in real life than on their blogs. My favourite blogs are on my blogroll.

Lose any friends or muck something up because of a post?
Kelly still talks to me despite the internet dating incident last fall.

What's happening in Toronto right now that the rest of us should be watching?
It's almost time to renew your subscription to Doc Soup, Hot Docs' monthly screening series. Many screenings sell out, so it's the best way to guarantee a seat and a great value.

Choose someone, living or dead, to write your biography. Why did you make that choice?
Elvis, Trudeau or Jesus Christ. Because they have the power.
