Keep Houston Press Free

Drenched In Blog: Blog Action Day

Today has been heralded as Blog Action Day, a day for blogs everywhere to raise awareness about the environment and how we can make subtle changes to positively affect it.

Pish-posh. I do protest, hippie.

See, I write about inept musicians and post video clips that have sometimes only a vague connection to the print put before it. No way I’m gonna stop that party train to reflect on how I don’t recycle my used PBR cans or throw used cigarette butts at children waiting for the school bus. I rarely bathe, so I guess I’m doing my part to conserve water. After I get drunk at shows, I puke in the grass outside the venue to conserve paper towels, thus saving a few trees. And when I get new music, I steal it so I don’t have to waste gas going to the record store. All my proceeds from today’s blog are going to help a nursing student that dances at Sugar’s on I-45 go to community college.

See, I’m a regular Al Gore. Give me a Nobel Peace Prize for being awesome. Today’s video is honor of the sun, which, according to Mr. Gore, will one day kill us all. – Craig Hlavaty

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
