  1. hi raincoaster. just passing thru. nice blog.

    visit my blog at www. [edited, hahahaahaha].blogspot.com

    where my blood pressure level can be managed easier than wordpress blog.

  2. Also: forgot to mention I moved a huge ladder off my patio, no mean feat as my patio is surrounded by a 10 foot wall and I can’t get the ladder out my door, so over the wall it had to go. Was supposed to help a neighbor move, but she wasn’t home.

    In compensation, today I’ve read a vintage etiquette book, drunk a pint of beer, had a burger, and picked up the mail.

  3. Mmm. Still got this fuckin’ blog, eh? Does it get ya laid? Humph. When was the last time you had a really good pussy munch? Yikes! “Kubrick II” posts pretty soon. Keep checkin’ YouFuck’EmTube. That’s an insiders tip, Baby Cakes. (I can call you Baby Cakes, can’t I?) Oh, Christ, I love this new video. Stay Gold. – Atene

  4. I forgot to mention what I actually did today. That was the point of the post. I (finally) finished a new video. Yikes.

  5. @atatkk– FWIW
    Anita Bath and Diesel steered me to WorpDress, even though it’s not quite as user-friendly as Blogger. After my hair grew back I found I liked WP better. Once you get the hang of it (and it’s not that tough) there are more tweaks and options to mess with. WP kinda poo-poos advertising, though.

    Dunno about Tumblr. I’ve seen several bloggers complain about it and eventually move to another platform.

  6. Ooh. That’s a tough one. I may have spoken too soon.

    I guess I could always customize a theme and screw that up, or accidentally delete my blog after a few days. Or I could post something so offensive that even Tumblr would drop me. I could pull that last one off with ease.

    Hipsters drink PBR? Guess I’ve been out of the loop. Maybe if I got a betelnut smoke and a 6-pak of lemon jack or something it’d help to crash the blogging platform that I don’t want.

    Sounds like too much trouble for nothing, unless I get a sponsor.

  7. Oh, yeah. I’m alive. I just got offered some sort of video spot on a Comedy Central viral video show. The guy at Comedy Central said I was tough to find. He found me through my sister. Do my videos look choppy to you when you view them on my YouTube homepage using “Internet Explorer”? You can reply through YouTube or at my private email address. I trust ya. More details? View my message on my YouTube Channel. Thanks!

  8. That’s awesome, congratulations! Don’t forget the little people!

    Yes, IE does cause problems watching videos, particularly if your connection isn’t good. But there’s nothing wrong with your videos: it’s what he’s using to watch them that’s causing the problem.
