Gwillikers! Is commenter Gwill getting his own blog?
As the Chicago Now community has long known, there is a certain glow to getting zinged by gwill, the notorious blog commenter responsible for some of the finest gems in all of blog commentary. Observe.
On a naked bike ride
: "Whenever hipsters and perverts unite an angel gets its wings"
On a mob of angry lactating mothers
: "I support boobs. I support what boobs do. [...] I'm that warm blanket which embraces the boobs when they feel frightened after watching the Human Centipede."
On the sad state of graffiti in Chicago
: "This wasn't done by a gangbanger. This was done by a Christian zealot, reppin old-school Gnosticism. What clearly gives it away is the zealot converted the letter "u" to replace the vowels o and e, just as in ancient Aramaic"
But is he getting his own blog? YES! I think. There have been rumblings that he'll start after the launch of the new site June 30, but we have yet to see a working title or any hints at theme. My top guesses are pimpin', ballin' and discovering the subtext of lost languages.
Long live Gwill!
