Hipster Catholics, blogging at a time near the end of the world.

I don’t know who this Angelico character is, but has anyone noticed that his little intro line changes on a regular basis? Here’s his latest:

Fantastic. Surfing with Mel isn’t a commercial failure. It’s an underground smash.

    We were drinking pbr back when it was still uncool and posting on Godsbody.

      I hear PBR goes better than Heineken with nitrous oxide.

          • and now its time for another incongrous necrocomment.
            So I wrote a post for this blog, riffing on another site, about a certain author.
            Thoughts, Kollektiv? I dare say you all could have done it better! (I’m only going on my questionable memory of his novels. Finished the last one – Lancelot – not too long ago. Will get to his essays eventually.)

            Lastly, one question for Angelico… I have an ello invitation with your name on it burning a hole in my digital pocket. Just need an email address to send it to. (not sure excactly how to make this exchange happen, should you so desire it, while still preserving privacy what with all the spambots roving the Korrektiv comboxes) With it comes 10 invites of your own to disburse as you please. I guess the concept of a sleek minimalistic social network sans ads, that’s still small has something of an ur-hipster appeal to me right now, hence the post I’ve decided to grace with my comment 😉

              1) Your latest for Unpleasant Accents does justice to both a) The Toast‘s ‘How to Tell What Novel You’re In’ series, and b) Dr Percy’s body of work; I read it with great enjoyment this morning. Well done, sir.

              2) Thank you very much for the invitation to receive an invitation to Ello. I shall be pleased indeed — not to mention grateful — to take you up on that offer, give Ello a try, and join you in claiming a new chunk of cyberspace for Our Lord. At least until it gets too mainstream.

              One of the creepier privileges that full-fledged members of the Korrektiv Kollektiv enjoy is the ability to peep the addresses that you commenters type in the ‘Email’ blank of the comment form. If you’d be OK with my emailing you at the address you used to enter the above comment, let me know. In any case, thanks for the kind invite.

              And thanks for doing right by Uncle Walker at Unpleasant Accents!

      Do they read it in the original English?

      Still eager to hear Maureen Corrigan’s review on Fresh Air.
