El Gringo Sexual

There's a guy at this place I work at some times who's an older gentleman who puts pseudo-latin music on the CD player while everyone is working. It's not Flamenco, but kind of bossa nova, with some jazz in it, sounds like New Age almost, Spanish-sounding, in other words semi-sexy music for very white people. After listening to CD after CD of this music, I've started to dub this guy "El Gringo Sexual: the last of the Latin Lovers" in my mind. Yes, my friends: El Gringo Sexual is on the scene mabo-ing and swinging to that Latin beat out to win your hearts and minds. Have no fear, El Gringo Sexual is town and everything will be smooth and sexy.

John,

I'm sorry to leave this as a comment on your blog; I had trouble finding private contact information. Feel free to delete after you've had a chance to read the message. You can reach me by e-mail at feedback@radgeek.com

So, the reason I'm writing is that it appears that the old anarchoblogs aggregator (http://anarchoblogs.protest.net/) has disappeared from the web; I've tried contacting rabble about it, and haven't gotten any response, but stuff he's written elsewhere seems to indicate that it's likely to remain disappeared into the indefinite future.

I'm writing because I'm making plans to restart Anarchoblogs, at the domain anarchoblogs.org, probably some time later this week if nothing comes up that would block it. I'm hoping to make it a lot like the old Anarchoblogs, but to add a few new features -- in particular, having not only a main page that aggregates everything, but also some more specific aggregators for particular communities (geographical, ideological, linguistic, organizational, or whatever --
seattle.anarchoblogs.org, ca.anarchoblogs.org, es.anarchoblogs.org, syndicalist.anarchoblogs.org, and the like).

Since you were a contributor on the old Anarchoblogs, I'd like to invite you to join the new project. Would you be interested in having your blog syndicated on the site? Let me know.

Cheers,
Charles Johnson

Sure, I'd like that. I had some readers that came here through Anarchoblogs that I've unfortunately lost. I wasn't sure what was going on with it.
