Sexy Scobie Will Retweet Your Hate

Photo credit: JD Lasica - Robert Scoble and his wife Maryam

Robert Scoble, respected tech pundit, has rules about who he retweets. Important tech news? No. Lucid opinion on one of his comments? No, sir. Who does he retweet?

@Scobleizer I have an opinion about you! Do I get retweeted now? 😀 about 12 hours ago from TweetDeck

@XerxesQados no, to be retweeted you have to hate me. 🙂 about 12 hours ago from web in reply to XerxesQados

Having “haters” seems to be a popular topic on teh intartubes lately, and Scobie is known for staying on trend. Besides, everyone knows Scobalicious doesn’t get in twitter fights. He will not respond to your negativity!

Seems @Scobleizer has a lot of haters. I’ve never understood why. I wouldn’t even know, except he retweets them pretty frequently. about 12 hours ago from web

Who hates Scobie??? Who has time to actually HATE that guy? It would be like hating a beanbag. A beanbag with a twitter.  Anyway, Scobester doesn’t really care if you don’t like him. Your hate makes him stronger!

@dgentry everything interesting in life has haters, I’ve discovered. about 13 hours ago from web in reply to dgentry

Ding ding ding! There you go, once again if you have detractors then it means you are doing something right, or interesting, or original. Don’t you people feel ashamed of yourselves! You haters should go get lives and just let Scobie be great!

Internet Awaits Mary Rambin's New Site

Mary Rambin – mermaid, shopper, person who eats – is launching a new site tomorrow.

What will it be? My “sister”* has this to say about the new format:

Building out a website based on a blog (instead of it just being a blog) is a big step for me as an entrepreneur in the digital space.  On the new MTM, there will be less “lifecasting” posts, but the majority of the content will be based on our life experiences.  There is a difference.  In a magazine you have  a couple articles where the writers have actually used the products and services they are recommending.  Here, our experience will be the basis for reporting so people can see how it applies to their daily life.  The new contributors are educated, honest, and so much fun to work with.  I know my readers will benefit from the introduction.

Does this mean no more pics of Mary in Mexico?

Without Sklarge Mediaite Has Nothing To Say

Amidst rumors that Rachel Sklar, Editor-at-Sklarge, is leaving Mediate, the email newsletter has evidently gone into give-a-shit mode.

The subject of the Mediate email has said (no subject) for several days. Is this just an oversight, or something more sinister? Perhaps without the anal retentive tentacles of Sklarge beating the backs of the newsletter team this type of mistake is to be expected.

Either way they should probably fix that.  Or not. Whatever!

Sarah Lacy Does Not Talk Shit

Sarah Lacy, globetrotter, is preparing once again to offend her friends and possibly flee her smelly neighborhood – presumably for equally smelly locations:

ugh. that time of year again. ted insufferable-ness is starting. time to offend all my friends, turn off twitter or leave the country 6:58 PM Jan 29th from web

(you know, leave the country and actually report on challenges in the emerging world not sit in a room and talk with rich ppl abt them.) 6:59 PM Jan 29th from web

I hope she leaves the country again! It’s been weeks since we got a report on what other places smell like, or how they screw up visas.

Love Puppy Demands That You Love Her

Today I was instructed by my loving and adoring fans who are all jealous of me to check out yet another Park Slope Princess. Pigeon toed Love Puppy up there has some blog where she takes pictures of herself in shit she bought at goodwill and tells us how awse she is, and demands that you agree or gtfo.

I’ve seen the blog and I find it boring as all hell, frankly. I could give a liquid shit what Jessica is wearing. I don’t even care what *I* wear. I also find her whole “I am SO f**kING FASHION” attitude kind of offputting and just not my thing. So I’ve pretty much just ignored her.

Of course that’s not why I don’t care about her blog. Apparently the reason I don’t like Pigeon Toes’ blog is because I am…OMG GUESS! Guess, guys! You’ll never guess!

And I’ve come to this. Nasty comments stem from jealousy issues 99% of the time, especially on personal style/lifestyle websites and blogs. Its jealous of being in the second row at fashion week instead of the first, jealous of someone else’s budget, looks or popularity. Jealous of someone else’s skills or creativity.

Because if you’re not jealous of those things, why are you being so nasty? Also, why are you being anonymous?! If you have the bollocks to say shhh, why can’t you stand up behind it? (Trolls!)

That’s right, the final, defensive excuse for any negative reaction to your blog? Them bitches is jealous! If you are not ego fellating self-absorbed Brooklyn hipster blogstars, you are jealous. You are a jealous hater and you just want to be so so fabulous like the Brooklyn hipster blogstars. Just admit it!

Caroline McCarthy Needs A Witty Title Here

OMG BEARS McCarthy is a typical twitter user – she spent most of her night making attempts at funnies about the State Of The Union thing, and being just like whelmed about the iPad.

Now that we’ve gotten the iPad and State of the Union out of the way, I can just talk about the final season of Lost all the time. Right? 29 minutes ago from TweetDeck

Of COURSE she’s bored. Bears has some real news – something something BLAH BLAH…Bears needs apartment in SF!

The best lead I have on an SF apt sublet so far is in the Marina. I’m telling you this now so that you have 2 months to fine-tune the jokes. about 22 hours ago from TweetDeck

Hahahah! Bears needs to live near a steady supply of fish…cause she’s a bear…fish…yeah, I’m going to need those 2 months to think up jokes.

We have to find Bearsy a super sexy SF pad. Maybe something down in the smelly Mission district by Sarah Lacy!
