George RR Martin's "not a blog" where all he does is talk about the Hugo Awards, his lame arts cinema and the NFL, has fallen off the LJ Top 10. Can't imagine why.

I'm sure he turned off a lot of people (in all factions) by pretending not to take sides in the Hugo kerfuffle.

My "can't imagine why" was completely sarcastic. Nobody gives a shit about his opinion about the Hugos. Seriously, no one does. He's alienating people because of his absolute contempt for his fans and his sneering at people who expect him to finish the series. Fuck that guy.

Oh, I caught the sarcasm. And I agree, he's become quite the d!ck toward his fans. I have to disagree that nobody cared about his opinion, though. All during the runup to Sasquan, it was rather obvious that he was defending the status quo pro Tor while acting like a "sensible moderate" in the discussion, and a lot of the Puppy Kickers were pointing to him and screaming "See? SEE! George R.R. Martin agrees with us! You're all vile homophobic conservative unpersons working for Vox Day!"

I don't know anything about that, because I am particularly uninterested. The only thing I ever look at the Hugo nominees for is for what to read. I have refused to read anything about the "sad puppies" thing.

Probably a good thing for your emotional and mental stability. I was probably more involved than I should have been, but as a long-time supporter of Baen Books and a book reviewer at TheOtherMcCain.com, I didn't feel I could sit it out. Ah, well; at worst, it cost me $40 and some tsuris, but I got a nice stack of reading material out of it, to say nothing of a hoity-toity title and membership in the N3F. :)
