Sara, heads up: IRRITAINMENT should be in the glossary

I went looking for Casey Serin and his blog "I am facing foreclosure" is gone. Alas, I think, maybe.

But it led me to this article and a whole site about Casey started by Haterz: his readers who love to hate the man.

from the article:

The tension between Serin and his so-called haters has led to an unlikely situation: the very people who loathe him the most also rely on him for a daily source of entertainment.

The concept is sometimes called "irritainment," defined as: "Entertainment and media spectacles that are both annoying and compulsively watchable." (The O.J. Simpson trial in 1995 is the most famous example.)

    ah..but if you want all the gory details and the ever changing final posts to Galina on his blogs last day...

    go to caseypedia.com

    And you'll find links to various casey sites which are providing update.

    casey did a final podcast with some 'haterz' and apparently is now on skype.

    the saga never ends...

    weird, eh?
