Microkhan by Brendan I. Koerner

Called Up to the Bigs

July 15th, 2010 · 5 Comments

Apologies for the dearth of posting both today and this week, but we have solid excuses: we’re still doing press for the Alcoholics Anonymous piece (as evidenced by the above clip from today’s The Brian Lehrer Show), and we’re saving our choicest cuts for next week’s guest stint over at Ta-Nehisi Coates’ blog. Yes, we’ve been called up from the blogosphere’s equivalent of Single A ball all the way to the majors. Hope you’ll follow us over there starting on Monday, and forgive our forthcoming dropping of the royal “we”—something about it just won’t vibe with Coates’ more intimate tone. For a week, then, we will not be khans, but rather simple farmers on the intellectual steppe, doing our best to fill incredibly massive shoes. Keep your fingers crossed that our nerves won’t get the better of us.

    Looking forward to it – I saw on TNC’s blog that you are going to be guest-posting. You’ll do splendidly.

  • Brendan I. Koerner

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. We’ll see how this goes–curious as to how the TNC crowd will react to our more esoteric interests. Guess we’ll find out soon enough…

    Dude, you’ll be fine. The last thread was about running shoes and how they related to Spiderman. Not exactly a common association.

    A well deserved call up to The Show. I hope the increased exposure brings lots of new readers to Chez Microkhan.

    Look forward to it as well — Viva esoterica! We (the royal we) shall endeavor to promote the cause of microkhan in these strange Atlantic lands.
