Panic in Detroit!! (or blogland)

BDR has been evicted. Google hosting has banished him from the internets. He's in some sort of Catch-22 limbo. He has to log in to the Goggle, but it doesn't recognize either his email or his password. He's sought tech help, but it's been ineffectual.

I bet the poor bastard's panicking. Dude scours the interwebs daily and posts more-than-generous links to any number of shitty blogs like this one: Politics, Maryland/DC, Soccer, Literature, Poetry, Music. He posts his poetry and notebooks and aaarghocolyptic (sp?) musings for our delight and derision.

And, irony or irony, he loses his digital home on the same day his beloved (despised?) DC United ink a $300 million deal for a new home in Buzzard Point in SW DC. Do metaphors indeed abound? Is this some sort of digital performance art? If so, then bravo, my friend. BRAVO!

If not, I hope you get your place in the digitarium back. And your archives and links reader. And soon!

Good luck JMP!

[Dude, contact me if you want a place to post while you're trying to sort it all out. I might be able to figure out in Blooger how to anoint you as a guest poster here.]

UPDATE: You can get updates on his struggle here. Vanity's Graveyard. Yep, that sounds about right.

This has been very distressing for me. BLKDGRD is kind of my home base online. It just sucks. Godamn.

Thanks all for the Kind words. The one good benefit of all this.

Wow, to lose such an "aggregation" site is a blow. Good luck, BDR!
