I aten’t dead

atentdead

It’s incredible how mortified you can feel when you have not blogged for days. Especially when the only “blog posts” you seem to be putting up are actually articles written for a newspaper (not that there is anything wrong with them). Soon you begin to worry that your status of blogger is in peril and that you will be joining the legions of false bloggers that have long settled among us in the ether. Far be it from J’accuse than to transform into another “blogtime” event… we aten’t dead… we’ve just been generally busy privately and busy bloggingly. Privately aten’t much of yer business but bloggingly you all know the score. The date approaches as inevitably as a fly approaches a pile of turds and we are almost (I DID say almost) ready with the new J’accuse look. The new site has already gone through three versions and I am rather happy with this last newspapery feel. So. To sum up. We aten’t dead. We are just temporarily otherwise occupied. Which is also good for those who normally suffer from the lash of J’accuse. Check out the new slate look here: www.jacquesrenezammit.com/jaccuse. Meanwhile no prizes for guessing which literary genius provided the inspiration for this blog post title.

  1. Fausto Majistral

    Do the words in red form some cryptic message?

  2. Do I look like Dan Brown?

    Nope. It’s just to confuse nitpicking bloggers :P Can you try commenting on the new blog please? Would hate to know that Fausto (or anyone) cannot use the comment facility!

  3. Hi – The new blog is a bit too busy I thought…but maybe we’re missing the cryptic bits that Fausto is musing over

  4. busy??

    you’re more enigmatic than Dan Brown!!!

    confusing maybe?

  5. I liked it but there’s a too much going on….too many sections (like The Guardian online)… maybe I have to get used to it though

  6. I found this statement/calculated outburst, or what you may, very thought provoking…I share its feelings as the economic nature of immigrants to our country seems to have taken over completely from true misery caused by hunger or repression. Where are our/the EUs ‘spy agencies’ to ensure that the trafficing of humans is not an activity ‘inspired’ by money and more? The poor and oppressed are always welcome, the rest are breaking laws. …just wanted to share. Good luck with your new project…seems to be coming on fine.

    Prime Minister Kevin Rudd – Australia

    Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday
    to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid
    to head off potential terror attacks..

    Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying
    he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:

    ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am
    tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some
    individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we
    have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘

    ‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials
    and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’

    ‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese,
    Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to
    become part of our society . Learn the language!’

    ‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right
    wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on
    Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly
    documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of
    our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another
    part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

    ‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is
    that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with
    us.’

    ‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you
    every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining,
    whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs,
    or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other
    great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

    ‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come
    here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’
