because cool kids are boring

Ben and Mena

without comments

I was going through some entries in an old blog I have, scrapping out posts of value for a new project that I hope launch soon, and came across this old chestnut.

Ben and Mena
by Steven Frank.

Released by in 2003, the song has been tagged as the first “Blogging Anthem”

Here are the lyrics. I’ve included a few hints for folks that may not get the jokes.

Blank page, nothin’ to say
Just pictures of my cats today
Thought about the war a bunch
Now let me tell you what I had for lunch

Boys all hate me, my girlfriend dumped me
They’re bombing Iraq, my oatmeal’s lumpy
Wi-Fi networks in Central Park
Funny Photoshops up on Fark

(Chorus)
I wanna be Ben, I wanna be Mena
If only for a moment or two
I wanna be Cory, I’ll even be Winer
If that’s what I gotta do

I wanna be Ben, I wanna be Mena
The master of my domain
So send me a ping, send me a trackback
I promise I won’t complain

Referers say no-one came today…

That perfect link I hope to find
Check MetaFilter for the 40th time
I left a comment, I hope you see
How this issue pertains to me

Semantic web, RSS, and e-mail
Single white guy seeks athletic female
I’m busy building the digital commons
Cook me up another bowl of ramen

(Alt. Chorus)
I wanna be Ben, I wanna be Mena
If only for a moment or two
I wanna be Haughey, I’ll even be Stile
If that’s what I gotta do

I wanna be Ben, I wanna be Mena
The master of my domain
So send me a ping, send me a trackback
I promise I won’t complain

Referers say no-one came today…

Not sure who Stile is. Anyone know?
