Not too long ago in a blogosphere not too far away…
It is a period of civil strife after Stuck on the Palmetto blogger Rick destroyed his blog in the midst of a fierce battle with the Daily Pulp blog, leaving hundreds of loyal readers floating through cyberspace without a permanent docking space to wile away the office hours.
This act of self-destruction also left a young cyber knight named Alex without a permanent base to continue his “Vamos a Cuba” series, where he takes the title of a schoolbook that some right-wing Cuban Americans wanted banned and uses it to describe his own personal experiences about growing up on the communist island.
Some have speculated that Alex may cross over to the dark side and join the Babalunians at the Babalu Blog; for they are hellbent on dominating the blogosphere with their ever-growing empire of right-wing Cuban Americans marching to the beat of a cold war drum.
Meanwhile, Manuel A. Tellechua, who was cast away by the Babalunians when he refused to step into their goose-stepping conga line, has been taunting and chiding Alex about apparently not having a say in the demise of SOTP.
But as Tellechea stalks and taunts Alex through cyberspace, he himself has a highly skilled stalker who has the ability to transform himself into an almost clone-line duplication of Tellechea, giving the impression that there are many more Tellecheas floating around in cyberspace.
Tellechea’s main parodist goes by Manuel A. Chechechea and has the uncanny ability to imitate Tellechea’s pompous, high-brow writing style. Both Tellechea and Alex suggest that there may be more parodists out there.
As Tellechea continues taking jabs at Alex with Alex increasingly striking back, hundreds of cyber refugees are beginning to settle at Critical Miami. But many are still floating adrift, anxiously waiting to see if Alex launches his own blog.
Meanwhile, Alex has revealed that he has no respect for Critical Miami’s owner Alesh; something to do with a post Alesh once wrote about immigration. Like Alex, Alesh is an immigrant, but hails from the Czech Republic instead of Cuba. He asserts that he has no idea what Alex is talking about.
Tellechea has suggested that Alesh join forces with Steve Klotz from the “Klotz” as in “Blood” blog in order to form a rebel alliance against the evil Babalunians. Klotz said he would consider this, but Alesh has yet to publicly comment on this suggestion. And the fact that he refuses to maintain a blogroll suggests that he is fiercely independent and would not be open to the idea.
Throughout this time of turmoil, Alex has remained headstrong and has maintained his pride. Already having been offered a permanent spot on a South Florida blog, only to have the offer withdrawn 24 hours later, he asserts that he will not adjust his liberal politics for any blog.
As he and Tellechea duel it out on various comment sections throughout the blogosphere, it is becoming evident that the two Cuban Americans are closer than they admit. It is become clear that Tellechea has a certain affinity for the young cyber knight.
It is becoming clear that perhaps Alex is the son of Tellechea.
The saga continues
