I’m a loner, Dottie… a rebel…

In Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, where Pee-Wee heads out on a quest to find his bike, he comes across a slew of different people. Simone, the waitress of dreams. Mickey, the convicted convict. Large Marge, a truck driving ghost who just wants to be heard.

He was a loner and a rebel, he had a great imagination to have insane dreams about clowns and ate his breakfast with very large utensils. But he was persistant (I know you are but what am I), courageous (fleeing from Andy and the dinosaur bone), smart (he came up with the costume idea to fool the cops during the roadblock when the world was looking for Micky).

Now, since BMX riding is so 1980’s, I think that Pee-Wee Herman would be a blogger today.

Michael Keren, who has written “Blogosphere: The New Political Arena,” suggests individuals who bare their souls in blogs are isolated and lonely, living in a virtual reality instead of forming real relationships or helping to change the world.

“Bloggers think of themselves as rebels against mainstream society, but that rebellion is mostly confined to cyberspace, which makes blogging as melancholic and illusionary as Don Quixote tilting at windmills,” the author says.

  4. Hmm.. well last time I checked I was a real person. And as far as I know I spend as much time visiting with and chatting on the phone to real people as I do making friends through blogs.

    And if blogging makes me a rebel then whoo hooo, I finally found a way to be a rebel 😉

  5. I am a figment of my own imagination.
