Yes, one could say that header is a shameless steal from Apple Computers, and one would be absolutely, 100% correct. That's because when Hearsay was informed by its editors that it was being transplanted from the world of newsprint, where for 13 years (give or take a year or two), it held court in Metro Weekly's pages, and into the world of bits and bytes, Hearsay felt like it needed some kind of formal "techie" introduction.
Make no mistake, however: Hearsay is not a geek. It does not aspire to geekdom. It does not want to own an iPhone (but its friend and blogging compatriot, Sean "Boombox" Bugg, does -- and he loooooves it). Hearsay does not care to know the difference between HTML, PHP and PMS, unless one is talking about acronyms for those cute little pink tablets that Hearsay takes to make itself feel extra special. No, Hearsay aspires to one thing and one thing alone: Ferreting out the best D.C. GLBT Nightlife has to offer and ferrying you, Dear Reader, towards said Nightlife destinations. Toot toot! Hearsay will almost certainly find other purposes in blogdom as it ventures into this world wide webby wilderness, but that will come with time.
Fear not, Hearsay will still appear in Metro Weekly magazine from time to time. After all, that long hard work laying out the sizzling and sexy new look for the column must not go to waste. (Hearsay paid good money for its new logo, and Hearsay plans to get it used.) But you can (and should) check back here frequently for updates on D.C. life, D.C. loves, D.C. birthdays, D.C. boondoggles and boners, D.C. dupes and dopes. Hearsay will try to do justice to n its own Hearsay-ian kind of way. And for those of you brand spanking new to Hearsay, Hearsay just might post something here and there from its ancient archives, just to get you acclimated to the entity that is Hearsay.
