Playing to the Masses

Thus far, having a blog has been pretty interesting. Perhaps the most difficult parts have been (1) finding the time to post, and (2) figuring out what to post. I have clearly surpassed my brother in (1). This is largely because Mr. J has a real job. It's okay though, our four readers are primarily my friends anyway. Mr. J informs me that his friends read, but I think he's making it up. If he's not making it up, that's just depressing. As it would mean that, not only is my younger brother cooler than me, all his friends are cooler than my internet-obsessed friends. There's only one solution to the "coolness" question, and that would be to get more people reading. Don't ask how the logic flowed there, just trust me on this.

Mark has suggested that more people would read if I had links to freakish things on the internet. Having googled "weird shit," I have come up with the following websites. The first one is http://www.drunkbastard.net/weirdshit.htm. This website largely has X-rated humor videos, including one very disturbing video of a penis singing soft rock. The second Google link is http://www.blowfish.com/catalog/videos/surreal.html. I'm not even sure what that is, I think it has something to do with porn. All I know is that the opening line is "Finally, a movie for electric chair fetishists!" Finally, we have this very unclear link http://feministing.com/archives/002026.html, which appears to be an article about left-handedness. Apparently, left-handedness has alot to do with being weird. Who knew?

All of this said, let's see if Mark's theory will hold true. Although, now that I think about it, I'm not sure if we want those electric chair fetishists reading. That's a little too weird, even for this internet-obsessed loser.

This post made my day! F*cking electric chair fetishists--they're so electrifying! The penis singing soft rock, however hits a little too close to home. I'm going to go sob in a corner now . . .

Hey babe,

You know, more people would have been reading your blog early on if you had actually given the address out, right? ;) Well, at least I know now and although it makes me miss you more I can get my Ms. J fix whenever I like despite the fact that you're 3000 long miles and a 3hr time difference away. Plus, it's great qual procrastination material (my second one is Nov 29--will call when it's over). :)

For a continually updated list of weird shit on the internet (lest you begin think the world is a normal place apart from the charmin folks), a good starting point is memepool.

Miss you girl,
Future Regular Reader #3 :)
