One more for the road 

Thanks to Mademoiselle Haggen for the inspiration:

"Call me TMFTML. Some years ago -- never mind how long precisely -- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at work, I thought I would mess about a little and skewer the media and journalism part of the world. It is a way I have of venting my spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before the New York Times Sunday Style section, and bringing up the uselessness of New York Magazine to everyone I meet; and especially whenever my hangovers get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately ordering another round, and methodically forget all about sobriety -- then, I account it high time to get blogging as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the Internet. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards New York media with me".
