Steve Roggenbuck is News
Steve Roggenbuck is news. I have said this for literally years. Nobody believed me. After so many years of seeing Nebula Dog macros I am glad Steve has arrived. The New York Times, a rather reputable established newspaper has covered many famous members of alt lit. Bebe Zeva and Blake Butler are both beloved by all the news that’s fit to print. I wonder how the New York Times feels about Steve Roggenbuck. Seriously revealing pictures will be in the Style magazine. Readers will get a rare look at this internet phenomenon. As an added bonus, readers can also see Steve’s inner soul, his T-shirt he wears underneath his patented sweatshirt. Jack Gooding, you have been warned.
I am glad that Steve is making it. I do not believe Steve is faking it. From my few interactions with Steve I see a guy who is doing exactly what he wants. Steve Roggenbuck answers to no one but himself. Rarely will you meet anyone as principled as Steve. Even literal school principals lack the verve and downright gumption of Roggenbuck. No school teaches the way Steve does. Schools teach facts from a set of state or federal mandates. What Steve does is teach people how to listen and follow their muse. Muses generally aren’t taught in school. When I found my muse it came with heavy dollops of noise and distortion.
We need to learn to grow and interact with others. Normally work defines how we do that. Work supposedly defines who we are. If work does define who we are then perhaps Steve’s already figured out life. Perhaps life came to Steve in a trip and was like ‘Steve, travel around the country making others happy. Boost’ I am pleased with how Steve’s grown over the past year or so. Since last November Steve has been engaged in an almost non-stop thrill ride across this great country, the United States of America.
Really pleased to see Steve in the New York Times. I figure alt lit has expanded infinitely this year. A lot of that can be attributed to Steve’s non-stop support. While we boost him he boosts us even harder. If a boost is said in the woods and nobody hears it, does it boost anyone? I think it does. Squirrels get boosted and so do chipmunks, skunks, flowers, flora, etc. Trees are the most boosted of flora.
That’s where we see Roggenbuck in that picture. He is in his natural boosted habitat. Usually the Roggenbuck lives off of nuts and berries, better known as super-foods. The Roggenbuck mating season usually occurs in early to late spring. During that time the Roggenbuck grows antlers and clashes with other Roggenbucks to find suitable mating partners. You can hear the Roggenbuck mating call from literally miles away. It does a dance to convince its potential mate of its worthiness. Those who witness the Roggenbuck dance say it is truly ‘lief-changing’. That’s the miracle of the Roggenbuck migratory pattern. It travels from coast to coast. Poor Roggenbucks were nearly ‘hunted to extinction’ in the mid-50s. Thankfully the counter-culture of the late 60s and onwards helped the Roggenbucks increase their numbers. Flarf in particular helps bring countless Roggenbucks together.
Glad the New York Times sheds some light on this #rare creature. I am proud of Steve Roggenbuck for being the most famous Roggenbuck. Happy to know I am not alone in helping to bring attention to this rare boosted creature.
