Blogging is slightly addictive, but so is wanking.
It is like wishing you were a crash test dummy: "Let's go watch a demonstration and see if any Americans start shooting at us." After a while you realise that you really are going to these places because you know they will make great blog entries.
Incidentally, the pull-out section of the Guardian was edited today by the band Franz Ferdinand. I have heard of them so I am funky too.
