Meet Your Blarch Badness Contenders: Hillku

tvbnew.jpg

I think I speak for most of us here at Seattle Metblogs when I say that Hillku is one of our favorites. Shrouded in mystery, they appeared out of the blue and charmed us with their haiku poetry about Capitol Hill. Below is a Q&A I did via email with City and Final, the two gracious purveyors of Hillku.

(Note: Hillku is facing a tough Round 2 charm-off with Kirida; voting is still open [m-b].)

Q:
who are you really?
the mystery confounds me.
at least: girl or guy?

A:
Straight Obama girl,
Homo Hills boy. Politics
Won’t divide us, though.

Q:
we love your haiku
but want to know why you chose
it to blog the hill

A:
Attention span short.
Good to limit the amount –
Ooo, shiny objects.

Q:
not to be rude but
why don’t you like the tourney?
are you a hippy?

A:
CapHill named us top.
We made our friends vote so much
They won’t talk to us…

Q:
plans: do you want to
expand to other ‘hoods like
j and k of c. hill ‘blog?

A:
Wallingku does not
Have the same ring as Hillku.
Nor: Bellku, U-ku.

Q:
do you still count on
your fingers the number of
syllables? i do.

A:
One, two, three, four, five.
Yes, absofuckinlutely.
Sometimes toes as well.

Q:
finally (at last!)
what’s your favorite haiku
over the past year?

A:
City and Final
Love the Why You tagged Hillkus.
Why you make us pick?

Shameless plug for Ku:
