We satirized Charlie, and the handful of others who followed similar paths, when we let Priscilla Houle-Eaton interrogate our compatriot Mr Caidagh.
PBH: Let me try a different approach. Mister Caidagh, I notice that several of your entries reference gay men. Are you gay yourself?
HC: No. I mean, not if you are referring to my sexual tastes and habits. If you revert 100 years and mean "gay" is the same as "happy," there are times in my day when I feel happy. But they have nothing to do with sexual desires aimed at sex with men.
PBH: So your constant references to gay men are not your way of seeking a mate or sex partner who is a gay man?
PBH: In my experience, bloggers use their blogs to find a mate.
PBH: When I say "mate" I don't mean someone to marry. I mean a sex partner.
PBH: So your blog is not designed to entice and court potential sex partners?
HC: Jesus. (laughing) You're serious here, aren't you?
PBH: Quite serious.
HC: Well excuse me for laughing at you. I think using a blog to find sex partners is a pathetic way to go about things.
PBH: So you've never used a blog for mate-finding?
HC: No. Maybe you have, but I haven't.
Since he failed to find his "partner" through flirtations he left here, little Charlie moved on, trying to impress us with new footholds in the e-publishing world. He began chirping in the 140char beakful quantity on Nervous Birds, and told everyone he was getting published everywhere for his massive exposes of the evils of capitalism. He was shaping himself up as the heir to Chomsky.
His biggest coup of his career has to be getting published by "Tom Feeley" at Eissy Aitch. In the classic little Charlie style, he wrings his hands until bloody with highly emotive fear-mongering and both eyes looking backward over both shoulders at all times, hearing footsteps behind him whenever he's awake, and while asleep his psyche entertains itself by taking metaphoric rides on darkly colored female horses who have minds of their own.
Poor little Charlie, reduced to masturbating in public like Pee Wee Herman.
