Josh Davis, aka Mr. Taza, appears to be reinventing himself. Like every other 20-something who watched David Karp happen, Mr. Taza seems to have dreams of becoming some kind of tech company “founder“. Thus, “Pippit” exists.
From what can be surmised, Pippit is some kind of iPhone app that may or may not basically be Instagram with a reblog feature or some kind of pinterest type app. “Oh Joy” is speculated to be involved somehow, and the Pippit twitter follow list seems to indicate something similar.
Just what New York needs – yet another guy trying to be a tech startup wannabe. Love Taza must be minting money if he can quit his job to play “founder”.
All you actual writers who contemplated burning down the internet after Jordan Reid‘s first book deal, please hand over your matches – Shillshackle Sham already has a second book coming out in 2015. After reminding everyone that she’s pregnant, Shilshackle announces “Well, now I have another big project due around that time, too.”
Coming from Running Press in Spring 2015: book No. 2, Carrying On. (The manuscript goes in at the end of the summer.)
Now, don’t you struggling real writers all feel that the money and years spent on education, building credibility, and honing talent were all worth it? Guess you should’ve started a blog instead, right?! Happy Hump Day!
The Thinking Housewife, where white Christian Americans go to vent their spleen about the horrible non-white non-Christian turn America is taking, just posted a charming rant from “Alan”. It seems “Alan” is angry because by golly gee willikers in his day St. Louis was full of white folks, and now those durned “blacks” have come in and ruined it – just like they ruin everything:
The degradation by blacks of what once was a peaceful, civilized neighborhood is a law of nature as predictable as day following night…the reason for that is that blacks will make a jungle out of any town, neighborhood, or city if they are permitted to do so. I have seen them do this to five neighborhoods in St. Louis where my friends and I lived, played, and roamed at leisure when we were children more than fifty years ago and without ever any concern for our security.
Yes…this guy is complaining that the neighborhood he knew in 1963 has changed. Seriously, are people really complaining that neighborhoods they haven’t even lived in for the past 40 years have changed? OMG, Peepaw, is that you?
Do you think, if we ask nicely, he will write a post about how he’d like to send all cellphones straight to tarnation because they are ruining kids minds with their disgruntled bird games? Maybe he will even hand out Werther’s candies as we sit at his knee!
