Six Meat Buffet interviews the ghost of Klaus Nomi on his picks for the 2005 Weblog Awards…
PTH: So, Klaus. Dead, eh? What’s that like?
KN: I am not here to discuss the afterlife with you, blogger. I am here to discuss my preferences for the 2005 Weblog awards. And nothing more. This is what my manager said we would discuss and that is final. If you ask me any more questions unrelated to this topic, I will dissolve back into the otherworld. Understood?
PTH: Understood. Male counter-tenor apparitions sure are a touchy lot. A lot of our readers will probably be confused to (1) see your bizarre mug and (2) read your comments regarding blogs, which weren’t even around when you died more than twenty years ago. How did you become an authority on bloggery?
PTH: Geek poltergeist comedy is unbecoming, Klaus.
PTH: Okay, okay. Back to the awards. Who is your pick for best overall blog?
KN: This is an easy category. Little Green Footballs. For many reasons, none of which I will tell you about.
I do enjoy Michelle Malkin and Instapundit, but I don’t visit them nearly as often as I visit Charles’ place. I realize that I’m supposed to be raking him over the coals or something for the whole openpajamamedia thing, but I just don’t care about that whole story.
PTH: Interesting. On to the “new kids on the blog block”. Which blog is your pick for best new blog?
It’s non-stop hilarity over there. And when your afterlife is as tedious as mine is, you need the occasional pick-me-up.
PTH: I’m sorry to hear that your afterlife isn’t as exciting as your regular life was. But we must continue. Which blog is your pick for best group blog?
Though I don’t swing that way, there is something about all that estrogen gathered in the same place. It’s mammary central over there. I’m usually only a lurker when I visit the Cotillion – it’s much like when I was a youngster and would peek into the girls’ locker room through a crack in the wall. Except instead of pom-poms, these girls have computers.
PTH: How disturbing. Which blog is your pick for best humor/comics blog?
PTH: I doubt you have any real evidence to back up that rumor, but I suppose people should vote for Six Meat Buffet just to be safe. Next, which, in your opinion, is the best conservative blog?
I guess I’d have to go with The Jawa Report. The druid spirits that follow me in the afterlife kind of look like little Jawas, so that’s a good enough tiebreaker.
PTH: We’re running out of time for this interview, Klaus. Do you have any final recommendations to share with our readers?
PTH: Again, Klaus, thank you for your valuable time. Even though I don’t know why you only gave us 15 minutes, seeing as how you have all of eternity to schedule other appointments.
KN: Well, simply put, you’re not even worth 15 minutes. You should be thankful I gave you that much. And I can’t say it’s been a pleasure. Because it hasn’t. Been a pleasure. That is.
PTH: One last question. Your performance of “Total Eclipse of the Sun” on Urgh, A Music War was so emotionally moving that I found myself in tears by the end of the song. Was the robotic dance choreography something you worked on in advance, or simply a by-product of being moved spiritually by the music?
