Blawg Review, set up by the anonymous and mysterious Ed is an institution, a carnival of law bloggers with a different blawger hosting it each week.  This week Ed celebrated the 200th edition and wondered if the end was nigh?  I can’t see the death of Blawg Review imminent or otherwise.  It is a wonderful resource and while US centric to some extent, this is changing.  A number of bloggers from the UK, Canada, Australia and elsewhere have hosted.  I’ve enjoyed doing two:  #141 at the beginning of 2008 and #193 at the beginning of 2009 (The Lord of Misrule)

While children sleep in their beds and lawyers pore over their briefs and papers…. the Prince of Darkness himself will host Blawg Review on March 16th… the theme day of my favourite god, Bacchus.  Lawyers in the American mid-west ‘may’ tremble at the prospect after the Prince revealed himself in Blawg Review #666 last year – a truly astonishing peroration on no theme at all by the holder of the Tourette Chair of Legal Blogging at F%$chester University.   This year… who knows what GEEKLAWYER will do.   I cannot wait!

I interviewed Geeklawyer who likes to remain anonymous. This explains his Ninja outfit.  He has just been in Canada for a month, living high on the proceeds of fees from his grateful punters.

Watch the movie to see what he has to say about his forthcoming Blawg Review.

PS: Colin Samuels, author of the Infamy or Praise Blawg picked up his fourth Blawg Review of The Year title (in succession) for his excellent Blawg Review on the theme of The Ancient Mariner. His previous Blawg Reviews took Dante’s Inferno as the theme. I am pleased to say that Colin Samuels is now my co-author for the West London Man series of social satires modelled (loosely) on Hogarth’s Rake’s Progress.

It has been some time since I had The Queen over to Charon TV. Tonight she talks turkey about government and then talks about the cricket, Slumdog Millionaire and Sir Allen Stanford, the Texan Billionaire.

It would appear that Charon has interviewed Gordon Brown about President Obama….  (Hat Tip to @Joelrosenberg on twitter  for drawing my attention to the word *Obamagasm* !)

Charon: Today I am talking to Geeklawyer about his tax return and other matters.  Good morning Geeklawyer.  You have been doing your tax return for nearly eight months.  Are you going for a Pullitzer prize?

Geeklawyer (In a German accent): Good Morning Charon.  The life I live means I have to pay particular attention to my tax and other official papers.  My tax return is one of the most creative things I have ever done… a work of true genius .

Charon: You appear to have turned into a German.  Have you been watching too many war films on Dave?  Be that as it may,  tell me what else you have been up to.  Have you been on Twitter recently?

Geeklawyer: Ja!  I have been on Twitter night und day.  I am addicted.  I cannot help myself.  I wake, see the Twitter screen and I just have to go on.   I even Twitter from court.  Judge does not like it, but I told him  that  I am  typing a note of the proceedings for my records.

Charon: I’m sorry, Geeklawyer but I am having real difficulty understanding you…  are you sure turning yourself into a german is a great idea?

Geeklawyer: Ja!  It is a great idea.  I can charge clients even more because I also  have doctorate degree from internet and clients think I  know a lot more law than my competitors.  Also, when they ask me to repeat myself, it takes time and time is money!

Charon: Well   there we are.  Lawyers are feeling the pinch in these credit crunch times.  We all have to cope.  Thank you for coming on.  I wish you luck with  your new riches.

Geeklawyer: Did you say Reich?  No… I must have misheard you.  It may be the mead I have been drinking.

Charon: Well it is goodbye from me and it is goodbye from my mate Rommel.  Goodbye.  Auf Wiedersehen.

Well… here we are.  It is Christmas Day. I have opened the bottle of red wine from my Christmas stocking.  I tracked Santa’s progress across the globe courtesy of NORAD and Google Earth and now I am going to do what many people do….. possibly to excess?  Merry Christmas.
