I love old people, and I love old people’s blogs – especially when they talk about old people stuff.
I keep telling people that when I’m older I want to be harmonica-playing, sunglasses-wearing old man in a suit and a fedora, with gold teeth and lots of tattoos. A lot of the time they think I’m kidding, but most of the time I’m really not. I’m striving to be the stereotype, but that’s because I appreciate the stereotype for what it is. I want to be a wily, styling, thoughtful old guy. I’m not interested in the early-bird supper, I never will be, and I’m comfortable with that. I’m hoping it’ll make me more friends with young people than the average khaki sporting 65+ man. In fact, I’ll probably be saying at that age: “I love young people, and I love young people’s blogs.” 🙂
That’s why I appreciate it when Scoble talks about his mother passing away (as sad as the topic is), and also why I appreciate Dave Winer (as much as people keep telling me to drop him). I feel like, on occasion, I get really good morsels of old guy wisdom. And seeing as I’m planning on dishing it out, I had better be getting it from somewhere! So if you know any good old guy blogs, I’d love to hear about them. Peace.
