Before It's Gone -OR- When Talent Lays Down

What started as a stroke of genius has gone awry. D r i f t g l a s s has transformed his Award Winning blog into a snarky aggregator (like most/all of the "A-Listers"). His talent made it amazing but reduced his posts to a headline, a graphic, a link and fun with labels.

The only problem is that he's fabulous at this new form too and has drawn much attention. So why should he go back to the long form? Or toil long over a photoshop masterpiece? Why continue to open his veins and pour out the best damn writing in the blogosphere when he can accomplish the same objectives with a headline, graphic and a link?

The only reasons for him to end his "vacation" that I have are purely selfish. I want to read his words. I want to sense his pith and snark. I want to revel in the enormity of his talent and fully experience the width and breadth of his abilities.

The withdrawal symptoms are freakin' me out!

So please go and enjoy the genius at play, but please do encourage him to get back to work!
