From the June 6, Kansas City Star article about blogging.

Greg Beck, 45

Kansas City


10-second bio: Beck, a former Westport bouncer (for 20 years) and manager of Big Dude's Music City (in the early '80s), is a logistics specialist for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Blogging since: November 2002. @#$%&*!: “I use bad language to express myself. I just write about whatever I happen to see.”

His audience: Locally, mostly musicians. But he has readers on every continent, including lots of women. “For not being very PC, I have a very diverse following.”

Not a fan: “My mother hates my blog. She doesn't read it.”

The beauty of blogging: “With me it's just more getting stuff out of my head. Some people scream and holler; I write.”

From his blog:

dread-heads & Martians

Monday after work I went up to the laundry mat to wash all my (stuff), and after putting everything in the washers I went outside to sit on the bench and people watch. Shortly after I sat down (my best friend) Michelle showed up to keep me company. Cause as you know, washing your underwear and (stuff) can be damn lonely work. We're sitting there and this dread-head cat walks up to us and asks us do we know where he can score some ecstasy. I tell the (guy) that since we don't do ecstasy we don't know where to buy it. And I don't know whether it was the combination of Michelle's stare or the bass in my voice, but he then declared that he doesn't do it either, he just wants to know who's selling it. He rambles off down the parking lot and we sit there talking as I watch him hit up everybody walking out of the liquor store.
