This week’s Blawg Review is from The Inspired Solo, who, tacitly acknowledging that all the good jokes have been taken — having taken quite a few of them herself — wisely advises saving the inspiration for more important things, after all. Kind of the Blawg Review version of “the show about nothing”:
As with my last BR, I am once again eschewing the problematic notion of â€œthemes.â€ The problem with themed blawg reviews is mainly one of oneupsmanship â€” somebody gets clever with the Shakespeare, then the next guy has to go all Dante on you, and the next thing you know, weâ€™re struggling to get through an irreverently witty translation of Innocent the IIIâ€™s De miseria conditionis humanae and, really, who needs that? Right. We just want the good stuff from the blawgs.
So thatâ€™s my â€œthemeâ€ â€” such as it is: a simple message from The Inspired Solo to tap your inspiration when you really need it, and donâ€™t let the pressure to be creative, funny, clever, or â€” well, hell, anything, really â€” distract you from your true goal. Thatâ€™s real inspiration.
