Weekend Werind: The Things I Feel

So, it seems my latest feature idea probably won't become a regular feature idea, seeing as how someone else had a similar idea first, he's had quite a few entries independently published under the shady umbrella of that idea, and I'm coming to the party a few years late and perhaps a few pesos short.

That's okay. We'll always have our one post together. Cherish it always.

Of course, it's not always the case that my latest bright idea is actually a gestated, mutated and adulterated version of something I've seen before out there on the interwebs.

Either that, or it's simply not always the case that I recognize that my bright idea may be standing on the broad, beefy shoulders of others. Take, for instance, my 'How I Feel About...' series, which -- to the best of my knowledge -- is reasonably unique in its scope, subject matter and silliness.

Maybe it jumped the shark when I puled in the orthodontists. I don't know.

(Also, its sassyness, though that's more for the alliterative satisfaction than from any actual sassitude. So far as you know.)

At any rate, I thought you might like to have a peek back at the last semi-successful (read: 'no lawsuits filed') semi-regular feature to grace these pages -- the aforementioned 'How I Feel About...' series. Observe, if you will, from oldly to newish:

December 13, 2005: How I Feel About... Pirates

January 25, 2006: How I Feel About... Pinatas

April 1, 2006: How I Feel About... Hippos

April 20, 2006: How I Feel About... Orthodontists

September 1, 2006: How I Feel About... Libraries

December 7, 2006: How I Feel About... Marshmallows

So that's how I feel about a half dozen things, at least. And an example of a feature that didn't crash and burn by the end of its first installment.

Second, maybe. Or third. Maybe it jumped the shark when I puled in the orthodontists. I don't know.

What I do know is that I'm overdue for another 'How I Feel About...' post very soon. And probably not on point for another 'Musical Memos' posts in the near future.

And, most important of all, this latest 'Weekend Werind' post is all wrapped up now, too. Don't need another idea for it for nearly another week.

Now that's my kind of feature, right there. Happy weekend, all!

Next time announce that you are doing a parody of those Musical Memos. That should cover the legal issues and really hack him off.

That's not a bad idea.

Though if it's the parody road I be taking, maybe I should shoot for fish in a bigger barrel.

Anybody know of a good way to legally knock off David Sedaris? Or maybe Neil Gaiman? Tongue-in-cheekly, of course.
