Do the syndication boogie

An odd new twist on syndication: Boogieplay, an RSS search engine that presents results as a checkerboard with 10 spaces. I don't know that the format works, but some entries do seem to jump out at you in this context, such as a rant on Gammatron from a search for the keyword RSS:

Hey, A-list uberblogger dickheads, if you're going to drop your RSS feed in the middle of the night and replace it with your snobby atom feed, that's fine, but how about a note in your RSS feed? Syndication is supposed to make things easier for me, so when I'm tracking 100+ feeds I'm not going to waste my time checking your site every day to see if you really didn't post, I'll just throw you on the junk heap. PLONK, PLONK!

Boogieplay appears to be snarfing up RSS feeds anywhere it finds them. The Drudge Retort feeds in this results page were only mentioned in one place on the Web: a Workbench entry last week.
