The Appliance Blog is listed on a site called UtterlyBoring.com. I call it utterly fascinating. An appliance repairman in Springfield, Oregon provides a daily record of his house calls and repair jobs, complete with photos of odd-looking appliance components he has worked on. He updates it virtually every day. He only goes by his first name, Jake. You can’t e-mail Jake, as far as I can tell. He provides a link to an appliance store. You think, naturally, that this is where he works. You talk to the guys at the counter. “No, we don’t have anything to do with it but we know who he is. We’ll call him and ask if he wants to talk to you.” So I wait, hoping to hear from Jake the mystery repairman. This blog (http://www.applianceblog.com) is not self-promotion. Is it art?
