TV critic urges cranky old newspaper readers to check out his blog, podcast

Tim Goodman of the San Francisco Chronicle is my favorite television writer. He's funny, irreverent, and is obsessed with some of the same shows I am (Deadwood, Sopranos). In his Wednesday column, Goodman announced a new podcast to go along with his brilliant blog, The Bastard Machine. The column has a few priceless lines:
Don't be afraid of your computer. Don't be afraid to read 'blogs.' All they are, essentially, are poorly written first-person journal entries with no facts, mostly done by amateurs for free. I have one. It, too, is poorly written in the first person for free.
Also, don't fear these things called 'podcasts' -- it's just radio without all the listeners.
Speaking of cranky, Jon, your blog software is making me cranky. Every time I leave a comment, I click the "Remember personal info" box, but it never does remember me and I have to enter my information anew each time. (Yes, my browser allows cookies. The "remember me" setting at other blogs does, in fact remember me.)
