So today Ex writes about Christopher Hitchens getting beaten up in Lebanon and all of a sudden he’s getting links from Gawker and Wonkette and shit, and everyone’s finally discovering how rad Abu Muqawama is. For instance, this IM I just received:
hey… have you ever haerd of this blog
i could go on
this hitch post is all over now
and i dont know what this thing is
i love the fact that Ex writes about Hitch and now everyone’s linking to AM like ‘this blog rules"
Well, I knew the band back when they were playing in people’s basements and gluing the covers to their own EPs. I have my own frigging nickname on Abu Muqawama. You see how much wasta I have? And if you read AM consistently, you’ll know what that means, too.
