Blog at the Edge of Madness

Okay, okay, okay, get this.

Today, the new stuff starts happening over at Welltun Cares Reviews.  New post up, a week’s worth scheduled.  Good deal, right?

You betcha.

But guess what, guess what?

I’ve decided to redo the headers and change the main page.

Isn’t that fantastic?

But wait!  There’s more!

I’m nowhere near finished with next week’s review series!

I’ve had months to make a sizable buffer and I simply didn’t get it done!

It’s not all bad, of course.  I do have the Dark Crystal review almost finished (he he he) and I can throw that up if push comes to shove.  Still, I have Week Three looming.  The week where I rewatch The Night Evelyn Came From the Grave.

he he he.

he he he.

I don’t wanna watch that again.

I FEEL LIKE I’VE A TERM PAPER DO TOMORROW AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT FREAKING COURSE IT’S FOR!

I AM A DOUGLAS ADAMS QUOTE MADE MANIFEST!

If you think I’m overreacting now, you should see me when Life hands me a real problem. Yeesh.

KBRS (IV) – Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

Only four misfits stand against a newly awakened dragon.

I like Terry Pratchett’s stuff.  Maybe not everything is a hit with me, but for the most part I find walking away from a book I don’t regret reading it.

This particular one, an early novel, had the deck slightly stacked against it.  I’m more of a Rincewind/Granny Weatherwax sort of Discworld fan, and neither character is in evidence here.  However I laughed where I was supposed to and had it been my first exposure to the series I would have come back for more.

I know.  This is a lousy review.  Comedy books like this, though, are hard to describe without risking some of its charms.  If you like, say, Douglas Adams, or the other Discworld books, this will be a fun read.

Four Flies on the Sister Site Update

Obviously it won’t be this month.  Thus we plan for March. First real post on Sunday, March 1, with a full week of Cathy’s Curse (contain your excitement) followed in the next week by a Friday the 13th of some sort.  Or the Dark Crystal.  Whichever I finish.

I currently have a one week buffer, which means another hiatus soon after that. Unless I completely change my modus operandi that is.

In further news,this entire post was written via Kindle.  Why?  I just want to see what it felt like.

In sort it’s a combination of much easier and a lot more uncomfortable.  Probably won’t do it that often.

Not like anyone will notice or care of course…

KBRS (III) – Crooked Little Vein by Warren Ellis

A washed up detective with unusual luck finds himself on the trail of the Constitution of the United States.  The real one.

Four posts later and not the book I hinted at.  Didn’t even own it at the time.

My site in a nutshell.

A very vulgar, very funny detective yarn that I don’t think is quite as good as it thinks it is, but makes up for it in sheer weirdness.  I was comparing it to John Dies at the End, and while it doesn’t stack up (I’ve read JDatE at least six times already and still feel the need to read it again, while I don’t have the same compulsion here) I’m rather glad I got it.

Kind of envious of the writing, in fact.

Again, very vulgar in places.  If that’s a turn off, be warned.

Also.  Not sure if I appreciate having seen the words Godzilla and bukkake next to one another.

A Brief Word From Onknee Spambot

We haven’t looked into the spam file for a while.  Mainly because I haven’t gotten much amusement out of it.  But a couple three of them popped up today and I thought, what the hell.

Attached to A Little Cutie Next to My Official Doctor Who Hat was the following missive:

Right below it is a comment that isn’t a reworded copy of the first post in any way, shape, or form:

Even the commenters’ names are startling in their originality.  The former is from Mr. (or Ms.) i cant do my english essay examples gre while the latter is from Mr. (or Ms.) i cant do my english essay outline format

Maybe it’s just me, but I find that hilarious.

Then there’s the following, connected to The Ninth Year is the Least Important Year, Anyway.  It starts off will, frankly, decent advice:

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.  But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

More content would be good.  Because almost ten years of content doesn’t seem to be doing it.

(Naturally, not daily, but still.)

It goes off the rails at the end, thought.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.  Maybe you could space it out better?

 

 

For those who haven’t clicked the link, here’s a small picture of the post.

Content

This isn’t even chatty for me.  This is me silent and moody.

And no pictures.

At all.

This post has more in the way of images.

But otherwise good post from a totally real person named free bondage cams.

Seriously.  What is it about that post that says “bondage” to you?  Or really, this blog in general?

Spam continues to be a highlight of my blogging experience.  surpassed only by its deletion.  And actual on topic comments.

Please Don’t Torture the Sample Blog Pages

Forget the last set.  Check these out:

Here is the main page.
Here is the main page.
And here's a sample page.
And here’s a sample post.

While I think I might add a “Coming Soon” image to the list (or replace the “Also Playing”) I also think that’s about it for messing with site design.  That should be ready to go when I reboot.

Now what needs to be done is working on a buffer.  Meaning get enough old reviews up to snuff to keep content coming on the weekly while I work on new stuff as well.  Should I get enough new stuff in the hopper, I might enlarge the coverage, as it were, and burn through the old stuff.

Or I can go old-new-old-new.  Or old-old-new-old-old-new.  It’s whatever I want, really, right?

Right.

In any case, the first three or so olds (Cathy’s Curse, Night Evelyn Ruined My Life Oh God Why Did I Watch It, and Horror Express) will be like new, as I’m rewriting them with the more modern style in mind.  So there’s that.
