Good morning and welcome to J’accuse – la verite’ si je mens (the truth if I lie). If you are Maltese and you are reading this blog for the first time chances are that you have read one of Claire Bonello’s articles on FM or Manic. Thanks for making the effort and typing in the address of what is probably Malta’s most popular blog in your address bar. The last sentence contains an example of tongue-in cheek humour – something that is to be found in great supply in the posts on this blog.
I suggest a little walkthrough through this blog by clicking on previous postsin the section entitled “Hot of the Press” in the right column. To do the time travel thingy without the Delorean then go to the section entitled the “Bollagio” which is a not so smart reference to a vault in a famous film and which contains all the archives of J’accuse. You have material that goes back to 10th March 2005 which is when J’accuse first strated picking on politicians, haranguing columnists and being rude to all and sundry.
J’accuse is not the only blog I write. If you are well versed in Maltese take a look at Kinnie & Twistees a blog that is a bit about Malta and a bit about the rest of the world. In there you will find the series entitled “Folklor Urban ghas-Seklu 21” which has three installations (+ one interlude) entitled Karawett, Kafe’ and Kuluri’83 respectively. If on the other hand it’s spoofing of Vassalli Maltese that you are after then the chronicles of Gakbu Sfigho in Il Bollettino della Sfi*a are just for you. The Laughing Fit is a project aimed at propagating humour in its basest form. It began as an educational tool for those who keep missing the joke and developed into a collection of funny things suggested to me by readers of J’Accuse.
You may read more about me, my blogging and more on my homepage. Any comments you may have are welcome and may be added on this page by clicking on the word “Comments” at the beginning of this post just near the title.
You might like to know that I post every day or almost. That there are no rules as to the content except that nobody is spared. You might want to get to know every time something new is put up – in that case I suggest an “RSS reader” which is a thingy on the net that allows you to read posts from different blogs as soon as they are up. Nowadays with IE Explorer and always with Firefox you can click on the orange button in the address bar and add the particular blog to what is called your “RSS feed”. For a less complicated system just add J’Accuse to your favourites and come back again daily!
There are other blogs out there. Many. I have a short list of some at the end of the column on the right. Enjoy the browsing and please do come back.
Finally, a big thank you goes out to Claire for her double mention. I am flattered to be mentioned in the same article as Guze, Immanuel and Pierre. Not to mention Karl Schembri of course!
The idea of this blog is still evolving. It is basically there to “think so you don’t have to” as the great vblog philosopher says. We like to put it this way…
“this has been j’accuse… it was either cushion the entire planet… or just your brain.”
come again… if not, so long and thanks for the peep.
