We Are in the Times

News Alert: Blogsnake swallows own tail! World to end soon.

In other words, remember our discussion about Naomi Wolf’s article about Gossip Girl? Well, the NY Times just ran a round-up of blog responses to said article, and we were included. In fact, quotes from us consumed half the word count and therefore we are the champions, we are the champions, no time for losers, etc.

Oh, wait, do you guys know that song? I’m old.

Special congrats to Lenny and Momgeek for being quoted. And thanks to you all for getting me mentioned as the novelist who “maintains a running conversation with teens on his blog.” I maintain nothing! You guys do 93% of the work in making this blog interesting. And that reminds me, I was really blown away by the depth and thoughtfulness of that comment thread.

Yay, you.

And if you just came here from that link in the Times, sorry if this has been kind of circular. But what did you expect? Content?

Dude, I’ve got books to write.

  1. The joys of having so much free time you can hav fun with the word ‘dude’.
    I think ‘random’ is a contagious word. It started in yr 6, and it’s become my word for everything. ANYTHING can be random, really. And I mean, REALLY.
    Ha, I’m aussie, but I say dude. Dude!
    Mate is just waaay too Aussie. :]

  2. There’s always citizenship papers to tear up, mate. They keep ’em hidden in a vault. Yours is dust now, missy. Niki’s, too. Dust, I tell you!

    Jess: Nothing is way too Aussie! Nothing!

    Niki: don’t you have wrinkles to remove?! Day to turn into night? You lazy bugger!

  9. I just stumbled across this website and I am a bit blown away. The comments I read were brilliant fun, insightful, creative. Conversations certainly rival some I have had with people at my University! Good on you guys and congrats on the NYT article. Teens get a bad rap in the media…prove them wrong!

  10. I know that song. We are the champions by queen. They rock out loud. I like Killer Queen (also by queen). And I’m only **. My age involves a 1 and a 3. I could be thirteen or thirty-one. You’ll never know. HEE HEE! Anyway as soon as my mom (or is it husband???) get home I’m going to beg her (or him) to get Specials for me!!!!!!LOVE your books Scott!

  11. Ok fine I’m 13. Did you guess? I hope I don’t have to beg my husband for books. And Queen still ROCKS OUT LOUD. Scott, your not old. Since Queen will always rock, maybe you’ll always be young. Hmmmm?
