Highway 61 stands in solidarity with our fellow Midwest bloggers. At first we were flattered to be be kept in the good company of so many other talented writers on BlogNetNews, but after repeated attempts of our own to contact the website administrator, we understand the frustration of our comrads. When it comes to making money by borrowing the work of others without their permission (or reimbursement), “this just ain’t right“.
So what exactly went wrong? Rebecca has one of the best explanations I’ve read:
“The site is using bloggers to make advertising revenue for itself. The site is taking the content of blogs without their authors’ consent, permission, or even awareness. The site is refusing to acknowledge the many requests by bloggers to have their blogs removed from the site. The site is using people’s registered trademarks against their will. The site is acting under the pretense that it creates community, when all it actually does is use bloggers in order to make a buck for itself. Heads up, Mastio and crew: angry bloggers united make a formidable foe indeed.”
Kids, there’s nothing more cool than being acknowledged by someone you like, but If someone uses your blog in a way or in place that makes you feel uncomfortable, “That’s NO GOOD.” It’s your body (of work), no one has the right to use it unless you want them to. So what do you do? First you say “NO!”, then you get out of there.

As a blogger I’ve learned a thing or two about…something writing related. You see, I’m not a creative writer so much as an ironic one. And that’s why I’m going to cut and paste this flier, which is making the rounds, from our new friend Ryan Miller who wants to help you help yourself:
I’m teaching a 7-week course for fiction and creative non-fiction writers (sorry, poets)… The idea is to provide a supportive and productive environment for writers to share their work and connect with others who are engaged in/struggling with the creative process. I hope to have more laughing than crying (though crying isn’t all bad) and to rouse some energy and motivation within the St. Louis writing community (Could such a thing exist?).
Time: Wednesdays, 7:30 to 9:30
Dates: April 9th to May 21st
Fee: $40 (no books to purchase—readings will be sent by email)
Location: The Gathering United Methodist Church* at 2105 McCausland Avenue in Maplewood
Ryan wants to promise us the class is strictly non-denominational, so we’re pretty sure that makes it Lent-friendly in this town. If you’re looking to join a group of around 10 other local writers looking to hone their craft, this could be your kind of gig. And if you’re looking for a little more creativity (besides going meta), could you tell me when you find anything?
I’m sure that many a loyal reader sees a null Highway 61 RSS and thinks, “Where’s Gabe?”
Well, I’m over here: www.fakeradioontheinternet.com
Hop over and enjoy some podcasts. We’re also listed in iTunes.
I’ll keep posting here, but only until 2007 ends. After that, I’ll be moving to Louisville to start a new job as a Public Radio reporter.
Fear not, loyal readers. I, Gabe, am still alive and well. I just haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been working hard the past couple of weeks, but I will return with more posts and a podcast soon.
As a college graduate, I have a job. I work at PubDef.
If you read the site, you’ll have noticed a mini-feud with KSDK. I don’t want to mix business and pleasure by posting shop talk here, but I think this opens the door to a pretty interesting topic. Click the link in this paragraph to read more.
We’re looking for contributors. Let us know if you’re interested by e-mailing us at hwy61revised @ gmail dot com.
You won’t get any money, but you will receive a wonderful pastiche of smugness and pretension.
Just a friendly reminder to those who do RSS that we’ve switched our feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/Highway61 . We suggest you make the switch as well, since this feed is designed to fit your reader.
For those of you who don’t, RSS is a great way to keep up with Highway 61; it’s Saint Louis on your schedule. Just turn it on, and it’ll let you know when we update, whenver you want to know. Your needn’t even view this site anymore (or course we like it when you do). It’s just that simple, real sydication that is.
