Britney’s Sex Tape and Post Odds

The Gambler

The deal is this, although Metro doesn’t know the deal. At one time he did, but that was at least six beers ago, and now he knows nothing other than what I tell him and that includes original additions to the Cthulhu Mythos, to which he furrows his brow and goes…uh…wait…hold on…and I hand him another beer and objections are quickly forgotten.

There was also an attempt by his wife to add aliens and various other restrictions to the blog posts, but they are hereby overruled.

Anyway, the deal is that after drinking beer throughout the viewing of Two Days in the Valley, Tapeheads, and Phil the Alien, we would blog, and we would go hit-to-hit on brand, spanking new posts.

And as you know I’m all about the hits.

Okay, 2:20 in the morning is not the best time to get hits, but there are worse.

Reading his post, which he finished at great apparent effort while I answered four comments and three questions in the technical help forum, googled the image of a loser, uploaded it to Photobucket, and worked on this post, it appears that he thinks the issue is simple coherence, which any fool knows a drunk can achieve simply by imitating Hemingway.

And so I ask you to evaluate Metro’s post either in light of total hits OR in light of its ability to evoke Hemingway.

He’s got some 80’s dreck music playing, so I’ve cranked up the Mylene Farmer Megamix. Thank god for YouTube; it’s impossible to find MP3’s in this world, but you can always find YouTubes.

And since I titled this post so specifically, we can be certain that it will draw at least a finite number of readers. Deluded, misguided readers, it is true. But readers nonetheless.

Howdy, y’all!

Operation Global Media Domination: Technorati: for when your life just isn’t random enough



This has gone far enough.

So I was teaching a blogging class on Saturday, and we were talking about blog promotion and linking and, naturally, I showed them Technorati. And, naturally, I checked this blog on Technorati.

As one does.

And it had gone up by a couple of hundred places, after having been dreadfully stagnant for a few weeks.

And there was much rejoicing.

And I happened to check it earlier today as well. Just because. I sometimes enjoy checking Technorati. It’s healthy. It’s what normal people do. It’s not obsessive at all.

And I had lost three thousand, two hundred places.

And there was a darkness over the face of the sun, and the gnashing of teeth.

And I happened to check Technorati again two hours later. It’s normal. It’s healthy. We covered this, okay?

And I had gone up four thousand, nine hundred places.

quiz: which Internet Celebrity are you?

Technosailor has designed a clever quiz to suss out your inner Internet Celebrity (via Matt). To be honest, only technology or marketing geeks, or those in close contact with them, will recognize these people. The tech geekosphere is largely a closed system, and it would upset the delicate equilibrium of the open-plan terrarium were we to tap on the glass too aggressively. Let’s face it: raincoaster should be a possible outcome, along with MadV, Mahir, Tionna, Pearl the Landlady, PeterPan, and the Chocolate Rain guy.

Nonetheless, if I have to be a geek, there are worse geeks to be. This one’s almost too nice, and so’s his wife. I’m not actually very much like Chris Pirillo, but I could easily see myself as his evil twin.

Chris Pirillo

You are most like Chris Pirillo!

You are most like Chris Pirillo. You dominate your brand and do quite well in marketing it. However, you go out of the way to place the focus on other people as much as possible as a decision on power and authority. You may have many followers, readers or fans but you rarely let this distract you from your mission and focus.
