Getting My Own Blog, FuckWits...

Never let it be said that I'm not on the cutting edge of computer technology. Having no shame beating a seven year old dead horse, I've decided to get my own weblog. Hey, all the cool kids are trying it.
Okay, so here's where you come in. Getting started.
Which service should I use? (Blogger, MoveableType, LiveJournal, TypePad? I realize this is a bit like asking whether I should use PC, Mac or that other thing. I'm open to all suggestions. Is there any kind of stigma attached to which service you use? Are LiveJournal people looked down on? These are the kinds of things I need to know.)
My skill level: pitiful beginner, but willing to learn. I use a Mac at home and a PC a work. Hopefully, I'd be able to update my blog from either place. I have a Flickr account and I'd like to be able to use that, too.
I want something that is easy to use, cheap, wildly customizable, and comes over to my house and gives me backrubs. Is that asking too much?
