O BLOG! my blog! our fearful creation is done!

3 Sep

Well, here we are. Week two.

All I am gonna say about this stuff I have seen about the gif fight and the “Down With Dull Blog Post Titles!” follows.

O BLOG! my blog! our fearful creation is done;
The site has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The first post is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady sidebar, the monitor grim and daring:
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of 404 errors
Where on the deck my Theme lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

O Blog! my blog! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills;
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Blog! Most beautiful blog!
This footer beneath your Welcome to the World
It is some dream that on the computer,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Blog does not answer, It’s frozen solid and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The site is anchor’d safe and sound, its creation closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;
Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
But I, with mournful tread,
On the screen my theme lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

That was a slight revision of some Walt Whitman you know.

I have no clue what made me make the are below. I was going to add some lines about ds106 being “sexier” than the rest. But then I thought better.
