Meanwhile, this here blogger isn’t necessarily endorsing payola, but he would like all of you PR types and artists out there to know that other people of your ilk have gifted him with clothing and food because he has helped promote their wares, and what have you done for him lately.

Blogging: It still sits in the corner waiting for someone to give it free stuff! [GyantUnplugged via Ian]
