Hello — I’m Matthew Perry, the star of the NBC’s long-running hit sitcom Friends. And when Friends, the long-running hit sitcom on NBC that I starred in, came to an end, I wanted a way to stay in touch with my friends.
But we’re all so busy these days. Matt has his show on Thursday nights.
David joined a rec softball league. Lisa switched to an unlisted phone
number and apparently forgot to tell me. Courtney would rather hang out
with David Arquette than shoot the breeze with someone she worked with
for a decade. And Jennifer — I don’t even know what she’s up to these
How can busy stars like us stay in touch while jetting to the set of
our latest film or waiting for NBC to maybe offer us a sitcom after all
we’ve done for them? Letters are so impersonal. Postcards are so terse.
I don’t even know if they have telegrams any more.
Then, one day, I came across a clipping from the New York Times Circuits section about this emerging new trend called weblogs or blogs for short. Apparently, weblogs or
are Web pages where ordinary people can jot down their thoughts on just
about anything, which other people can read and then write — or post, for short — comments about what they think. And these weblogs or blogs cover just about anything — politics, sports, fashion, even poems about cats! Could there be any more blogs?
Yes… yes, there could. This blog!
