Blog Comedy, Blog Pop

As this article shows, many mainstream comedians like Artie Lange and Dane Cook are using the Internet yet on every blog on comedy I don't see their names.

Thus I propose the terms blog comedy and blog pop. Terms like "alternative" and "indie" carry connotations of exaggerated superiority; an implication that the listener is above the masses. Whereas I pretty much just listen to whatever's on the blogs. Seriously. I'm not digging record crates at Cake Shop trying to find the most alternative comedian ever. All they ever have there are Firesign Theater records.

Seriously, is there a comedy blog that discusses Artie Lange and ignores Eugene Mirman? Or a music blog that prefers Nickelback to TV on the Radio? Find me these two blogs. Your reward will be sent in your offshore account in gold chocolate coins.

Yeah--ever hear of CringeHumor.com?

Cringe humor isn't a blog but thank you for playing.
Actually there is Shecky.

Nevermind; Shecky is also a magazine. Blogs that aren't affiliated with publications rarely talk about artie lange.
