About Corey Lambert
Corey Lambert graduated from New York University with a degree in English quite some time ago. While the smoke clears on his future plans he moonlights as a gainfully employed former manny. He enjoys romantic comedy films, clothing with thumb holes and showering immediately after a haircut. He respectfully dislikes folding fitted sheets, Harry Caray impersonations and using the Oxford comma. A native of Michigan, Corey currently resides in San Francisco with his gay male partner, their two rescue dogs and George Clooney, his 11-inch MacBook Air.
About This Blog
Part journal, part scrapbook and part storage unit for swear words, this blog began in a tiny Brooklyn Heights one-bedroom in the fall of 2005 with a shoddily-written rant about a college literature course. In the years since, this cyber space has been used to stash v. many posts spanning a wide range of topics including French fry addiction, facial surgery and why it’s totally appropriate to get stinking drunk in any situation involving commercial air travel. Nearly every entry can be found in the Archive or by putting through its paces the search function.
But Like, Why
Kari Geltemeyer, the blogger behind karigee.com, was once asked why, in the age of “content” and “personal brands” and “social media”, she continues to keep a blog. Her answer was thus:
…the thing I like best about blogging is that it can be “useless.” There are no rules or expectations about what it has to be - I can post whatever I want, because it’s mine, and I don’t have any responsibility to provide people with a certain kind of content. It’s just whatever I’m thinking about on any given day.
Corey Lambert concurs.
