250 Posts: official notice

Prize distributionNooseToday, Mumbai,
October 14, 2006:

It's official. rearset's fledgling bog blog has just notched up its 250th post. The blog, officially titled, Large Motorcyclist Motorcyclist At Large was started on January 28, 2006. Or a date that appears to be phonetically similar to that day. Talking to the hacks media, rearset said, 'the flashes are blinding me, could you turn them off, please?' When asked specifically about the blog and why he started it, rearset said, 'Oh that. It was just a thing everyone was getting into, so I wanted to try it also. I guess as an impressionable adult, I did not try grass and drugs, when all my friends were either on them, or not. This has left me with a deep-seated psycho-social need to join mass movements.'

The blog was always intended as a place where rearset could rant and rave talk reasonably about motorcycle safety. More specifically, the lack of it in India. In time, rearset has discovered, that not many are interested. When asked repeatedly about this phenomena, rearset said, 'I'm disgustipated! I only see spikes in traffic when I post information on new bikes. It's a disgrace. [the rest of this rant quote was excised for brevity's sake]'

Commenting on future plans, rearset said, 'gimme another beer.' When NooseToday finally managed to get the drunk famous blogger to focus on the subject, rather than the alcohol, he said, 'You were asking about the long term? About the blog? Oh sorry. I intend to go out there and give a hundred and ten percent. My next target is to achieve 300 posts in the shortest possible time. Which could be anytime after the 299th post goes online.'

As rearset was being dragged to the door of the upmarket pub where this boring shindig media event was held, rearset signed out with a slurred, but still witty repartee, that is likely to appear as a Mantra at the blogs, a feature the blog is despised famous for, 'I want more beer,' a classic line yelled in sheer frustration by many famous people through the ages.

For those who are still blissfully unaware of the rearset's blog, remember, you are reading this at the blog.

Intersting it is to see then that the Blogger Archive still reports the no. of 2006 posts to be 242. So rearset where did you hide the other 8. Or are you playing Bajaj by calling a 143 cc a 150 cc bike.

rearset said...

Yes, there is some discrepancy. I checked. The score of public posts is indeed 242. 6 are hidden because they were being used earlier to generate the categories (labels in the new Beta Blogger) and 2 are employed as draft posts, which contain image links to stuff I uploaded but have not used...
