I’m inspired by really cultivated online identities–the choosing of an online self. One of my favorite personas is the satirical Amazon reviewer, Mister Quickly. He was incredibly prolific during the early aughts, and IMHO, one of the great wits of our time.

This is his review of a flat-screen television: “This magnificent onyx rectangular viewing receptacle has vivacious crispness and doubles as a capable scrying medium during twilight.”
