something old, something new, something blogged, something blue

Many prehistoric cave paintings appear to depict weddings. Wedding sketch artists date back to antiquity, and wedding photographers have been around since the late 1600s. Thomas Edison was the first wedding videographer, choosing to record a ceremony to showcase his invention of the Betamax VCR format.

This Saturday, the evolution of nuptials-preservation will take its next logical step. Mme. Simpleton from Maximum Girly will be getting married. From the discreet platform provided by a rear pew and my tablet PC, I will be simulblogging it.

If you are getting married and want me to blog your wedding, e-mail me and we can discuss services and associated prices. While I've generally thought of "life coach" as being the entrepeneurial project that would draw me out of academia, I think "your wedding blogger" might be it instead.

All those Lascaux animals getting married?!!

jeremy said...

Not all, but many. This is well known.

Nice. But you will not win a computer at the Frontier Days Spelling Bee this year.

jeremy said...

OK, OK. I was so excited I rushed the post. Known spelling errors were corrected.

You're not planning to blog our wedding, are you? Well, maybe that won't be so bad but I am drawing the line at blogging the honeymoon!

Ann Althouse said...

Sorry, Jeremy. It's just that "nuptials" is on the list of most misspelled words. (And I know that being the kind of person who would say something like that is one of the many reasons I'm not married.)

what i'd like to see most is jeremy blogging his own wedding.

With a headset he could audio post it.

dorotha said...

that is a good idea, RWS. i was imagining him with his tablet stopping the ceremony ever few seconds to post something. or to upload a picture. jeremy would need a tolerant bride.

Nan the Fan,
You know I'm trying to get Jeremy to go your wedding as my plus one. Your excitement over wedding-blogging might have just made up his mind. Thank you (and miss you)!

I always thought I'd want my wedding webcast. I'm sure they include that in your finer Vegas Pirate Wedding package, right?

I am fully planning on a pirate wedding, if I ever get married. I can't wait to see the simulblog of the wedding!

If any of you need a real Pirate at your simulpodblogcast wedding....
let me know.

I've already had three broken engagements as a result of my insistence on a pirate wedding. One would be surprised at the number of supposedly liberal women who can't get past the idea of a groom with a parrot on his shoulder.

Nan: TOK and I are in negotiations about your wedding and its simulblogging possibilities.
