Sadly, I just needed to finish up some things around the house and I got sucked into True Blood, watching all of Season 2 in 2 days...so many boobs and orgies... But seriously why isn't real life like Bon Tempe, where everyone owns sexy underwear and wears it at all times? Such is the excitingness of my life.
Enough of the minutiae. There was a hell of a fight last week started by Smurfy and Wyddr and finished off by GW's own Tom Kirby of "3++ is the new Black" over whether or not blocking is a viabl tactic. Hint- it is. Things got so out of hand that a few days after Kirby posted his tactica, an article with a decidedly similar theme went up on BoLS. I e-mailed Kirby with the news right away and am slightly saddened that he didn't fly off the handle. I would have been a little butt hurt if somebody tried to steal my Internet thunder like that. It's also kind of sad that nobody noticed that my last few comments on BoLS have just been "fist!" Those of us in the know, IE me, will know that that isn't a typo, but an imperative sentence.
Keeping my promise to Kirby to make sure that the polls were rigged so that he couldn't possibly win, I snuck Footdar and a bunch of other things in there to dilute the votes. Then well-surprise- "Footdar" carried the polls with 30% of the 81 votes. Yeah you heard it right 81 votes...more on the shenanigans that led to that later. It should also be noted that Kirby's paltry 17% lost out to "You seriously think I've got the time to read that whole fucking post" with 24% of the vote. Yeah it was long. So long that it's partly responsible for me not blogging for a few days after that.... seriously that fucker drained me. Trying to edit that thread into a coherent dialogue was a pain in the ass to say the least.
So do I feel bad about stacking the deck against Kirby and Smurfy even though they were right? Hell no. If you answered yes, you clearly haven't been reading this blog. The only thing that I actually feel bad about is that "RIP Dennis Hopper" made a strong showing with 8% of the vote, but my only reference to him in the fight was a line from "Speed," the worst movie ever prior to "Bad Boys II" and "300." To make up for that fact here he is at his best in "Blue Velvet":
Now onto the "Brent?" bonus poll. I had a lot of choice things to say about Brent's campaign- dude seriously, everywhere I turned there was a link back here- but he kind of summed it up with this comment:
Deathtron...Well your time and patience paid off Brent, as you dominated the poll with 70% of the 80 votes. You also probably brought 2 new readers out this way, so thanks for that. So even though Brent won, the real winner is me and the people that will now be basking in my awesome radiance. No I'm not conceded, not in the least. Well at least I'm not calling myself an Internet celebrity, lol. One last thing- it's Dethtron, not Deathtron, Breant. Get it right!
I'm so glad that poll is closed, you have no idea.
It turned me into quite the little advertising whore.
