After 1/3 of a year, I'm running out of steam.

I'm updating my other blog, bycurtis.blogspot.com semi-frequently.

Blog of Evolutionary Dead Ends

The Insular Cave Rat -- Way to die out, loser!
Gastrocopta chichijimana -- A snail or something. What the hell was nature thinking?
Paleomastadon -- Sucked. Died.
White-winged Sandpiper -- Good job screwing up, evolution.
Mustela lutreola (European Mink) -- This thing is not only dead, it became extinct in the Netherlands. Pathetic.

Blog of People Who Have Walked Into My Office, Looking Like Trouble.

Every day this blog will post about one person who walked into my office, looking like a big tall glass of trouble. Not that I wouldn't help, of course, but sometimes you just get that gut instinct. This time, that instinct was a 270 pound pug hitting me in the stomach, telling me "Hey kid, this here's trouble."

  • This tall leggy dame. You know the kind. Pouty lips and soft, caring eyes. Both lied, but what a lie.
  • Little squirrely guy. Big, thick glasses that didn't help him see that his socks were mismatched. But I didn't need glasses to see that trouble was following him around as surely as a dog follows the hot dog man.
  • Tall sucker. Not from around here. His jacket barely hit his waist, and I barely avoided hitting him square in the jaw, simply for having the audacity to come into my office, trailing so much g-d d--n trouble.
  • Cripes. Of all the days, why today? I had sworn to myself that if one more robot walked through the door, I'd become a nun and move down to San Miguel. Look like I need to go shopping for a habit.

Blog of Rejected Transformers

Robots that turn into:
  • Bust of Abraham Lincoln.
  • Turns from robot to slightly smaller robot.
  • Chinaman.
  • Sheet cake. (Has helper robots that are candles.)
  • Broom.
  • Hagrid, from the Harry Potter series.
  • A Tuna Fishing Boat.
  • Betamax player.
  • Roomba.
  • Instructional guide on how to dance the "robot."
  • An idea.
Please note that the preceding list does not distinguish whether or not each robot was a good "Autobot," (from the greek "auto," meaning "self," and "bot," the shortened form of robot. Autobots are "self robots," or, to be more precise, "self-actualized robots," meaning they are at peace with themselves) or an evil "Decepticon," (a combination of "deceptive" and "conniving," meaning the Decepticons are decieving themselves into thinking that they are good). This is because it is not up to us to decide if a robot is good or evil, and it is not made that way. It must find its own way over time to Autobot or Decepticon.

Daily Blog That Turns Out to Be A Dream

The latest album by Arcade Fire therefore isn't there best. It has plenty of things going for it, but...WOAH!

That's so weird. I dreamt that I cared about Arcade Fire.


Guys, if you don't treat each other with respect in the comments section, I'm going to turn off the comments. I don't have time to moderate all of these...


I was dreaming about...something. Comments? What the hell?

Daily Blog of Describing Magic Tricks

Well, this doesn't seem like much of a trick. I guess he's just showing us that his sleeves roll up? Not much of a trick--HOLY SHIT WHERE'D THOSE FLOWERS COME FROM? Wow! They just appeared!


So someone from the audience is up on stage. She's getting into a box. It's a normal sized box, the kind you would put a whole lot of baseball bats into. So she's getting in. Hmmm. Her legs are sticking out the edge of the box. Maybe that's the trick? That he cut holes in the box? He's spinning the box around now, which is a nice trick. Clearly the box has a sturdy set of track wheels on the bottom, which can be hard to attach to a box like that...wait. He's got a saw. Is he going to saw the wheels off of the box, so it's immobile?

No...he's sawing the box in half! That fool! Did he forget that he just put a woman inside there? Someone better tell him that box isn't empty! Why can't he see that there's a woman in that box! HER LEGS ARE STICKING OUT OF THE BOTTOM, AND HER HEAD OUT OF THE TOP! Say something, woman!

Oh god...oh god oh god oh god. She's been cut clean in half. Oh god oh god...there's less blood than I'd expect...but I Can't watch. This is a dark day for magic, people...

Wait. He put her back together. Well, this seems to be lucky. She's okay! Oh thank god.


Okay, this guy has shuffled the deck. Not magic, but impressive. Now someone has to pull out a card. Maybe there is a string attached to the card?

No strings, apparently. We have to memorize the card. Well, it's the 5 of clubs. Nothing magical about that. That's a card that could appear in any nonmagical deck.

Now he's put the card back in the deck. Apparently, he's given up on the trick. He's just shuffling the deck up. Excuse me, I have been directed to look into my pocket. Well, someone left a 5 of clubs in my pocket. That is quite the coincidence, isn't it?

I wonder when this trick will start?

Blog of Dangerous Effects From Simple Foods

The Peanut Butter Larvae

The Peanut Butter Larvae lives inside peanut butter. There is no way to test for it. Once you eat it, your days are numbered. THIS THING LIVES IN ORDINARY PEANUT BUTTER, PEOPLE! The only way to know if your peanut butter has been contaminated is through a visual inspection. The average Peanut Butter Larvae is 3 inches long, and bright pink. DO NOT EAT PEANUT BUTTER CONTAMINATED WITH PEANUT BUTTER LARVAE.

The Oreo Cookie Virus

Eating even a single Oreo cookie with the Oreo virus in it can be instantly fatal. There have been THOUSANDS of cases of Oreo Cookie virus in the media, several of them have almost been confirmed. The only way to avoid getting the Oreo cookie virus is through prayer, because let's be honest: it's not like you're going to stop eating cookies. EVEN IF THEY COULD KILL YOU.

Restaurant Ketchup Botulism

Restaurant Ketchup Botulism can be caught from Restaurant Ketchup. Not even using restaurant ketchup. JUST THINKING ABOUT IT. BE SCARED.

Blog of Celebrating Milestones for This Blog

Hey guys, this is the very first post for the Blog of Celebrating Milestones for This Blog! I'm sure it may not seem like much now, but years from now everyone will look back on this post and think, "Hey, that's where it all started."

Post number 1!


TGIF. TGIF. That's right, Thank God It's Friday. This is the very first, and so far ONLY, post on a Friday. Never before, and not for at least another 6 days, has this blog been updated on a Friday.

Ladies and gentleman, this blog has reached a true milestone today. And all I can say is "TGIF."


6 is the magic number, oh yes it is, it's the magic number.
-School House Rock
That's right, this is post number 6. Many blogs don't make it to number 6. Some blogs only make it to 2, or 3, or 4 posts and then pack up. Not this blog. This blog, the Blog of Celebrating Milestones for This Blog, has made it well past 4, and past even 5 (what a milestone that was!) and is now at a total of SIX POSTS!

Why is six the magic number? It's the product of the first three positive integers: 1, 2, and 3. The next magic number post won't be until post 24. This post therefore has a special, hidden mathematical significance.


This post is not special. There is no milestone related to this post. This is the very first post to have nothing important associated with it! A truly meta-milestone for the Blog of Celebrating Milestones for This Blog.


This is the last post for the Blog of Celebrating Milestones for This Blog. When future civilizations unearth our data servers, restart the internet, and decode this blog, they will mark this day as one of great change. Their calendars will read: 856 A.B.o.C.M.f.T.B.S.D. That's 856 years After Blog of Celebrating Milestones for This Blog Shut Down.

Blog of Guessing What Happened At Parties The Blogger Didn't Go To

Date: May 17th, 2008
Party: Crazy Wig Party, Samantha's House

So first off, everyone probably got really drunk, but on really really good booze. Hundred dollar, gold-infused booze. Then they did drugs, like really good drugs. I MEAN REALLY AMAZING DRUGS! They will never forget that party.

But I will. Because I wasn't there. I couldn't find a wig in time.

Date: July 4th, 2008
Party: Dave's 4th of July Party and BBQ

The BBQ had been slow cooking for hours. The fireworks were so loud and so amazing that clouds cried. There was a keg filled with root beer, which was used to continually fill up root beer floats. Everyone there was granted Super-American status, and now they don't have to pay taxes. But in a good way.


Date: August 24th, 2008
Party: Ed's Bar Private Event

First off, everyone took off their clothes. And then, sex. S-E-X.

Meanwhile, I watched Mannequin 2: On The Move in Spanish on Univision. I didn't really understand what was going on.

Date: December 19th, 2008
Party: FedEx Kinko's Management Christmas Party

Although the Secret Santas were not allowed to purchase anything over $10, each gift was genuinely touching and thought through. One person got a new car! Another got a life-saving bone marrow transplant! Christmas partys are great!

Unless you're working. To cover your manager's shift.

Date: December 25th, 2008
Party: Family's Christmas Celebration

So my whole family gathers around the tree. Everyone exchanges presents. But then, what do they find? I'm NOT there! But it doesn't matter, because they find that the biggest gift is from me, and it has a card attached which says "Thank you for being a friend."

And thanks for not offering to pay for my plane ticket home.

Blog of Games for Children

*Where's the Monster?

Everyone covers his/her eyes, counts to 20, then opens them. After everyone has opened his/her eyes, he/she searches for the Monster! After 5 minutes, the children realize that THEY are the true monster. Every time they've been mean to someone, every time they've lied, every time they've done something they wish knew they hadn't, they gave up their humanity just a little.

(Note: This game invented by a young Rod Serling. He was borderline creepy, even then.)

*Space Aliens vs Indians

Half the children pretend they are peaceful Native Americans (hereafter referred to, incorrectly, as "Indians"). These children take part in various cultural ceremonies, which mostly involve talking in slow, stilted English and not using correct verb tenses. The other children are the Space Aliens. They land and quickly destroy the Indians with their far superior weaponry. When only 1 Indian remains, the Space Aliens teach that Indian their secrets, and they all build a pyramid together. BECAUSE IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT THERE IS NO WAY THAT HUMANS COULD HAVE BUILT THE PYRAMIDS. The pyramids are just too complicated. Space alien technology must have been involved.

(Note: This game educates as it entertains.)

*TAG Body Spray® Tag

One child is "it." This child is given a can of TAG Body Spray®. The other children are given a 10 second head start. The child who is "it" tries to cover the other children with TAG Body Spray®. This game can be played for hours and hours. If the children run out of TAG Body Spray®, they must beg their parents, forcefully and repeatedly, for more TAG Body Spray®.

(Note: This game invented by Proctor & Gamble, owners of TAG Body Spray® and its subsidiaries. )

*Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones

One child is the "Geek." Everyone else tries to hurt this child as much as possible without actually physically hurting him/her. This game never really ends until the "Geek" either gains the psychic abilities he/she always suspected lay dormant within and exacts a horrible revenge, or he/she becomes a blogger, and hides the past in a thick blanket of sarcasm and feigned elitism.

*Historical CryptoFeminism

For 3-5 children. Children search works of antiquity for early evidence of feminist thought. ONCE AGAIN, ANY EVIDENCE OF SUCH MODERN VIEWS AND MODES OF THOUGHT CAN ONLY BE EXPLAINED BY SPACE ALIENS.

(Note: This game edutains as it entercates.)

*Jab In The Eye, Kick In The Teeth

Should never, ever be played. Please, please never play this game.

*Potato or Boulder?

One child, the "draw-er," draws a picture of either a potato or a boulder. The other children must collectively decide if the picture is of a potato or of a boulder. If they guess correctly, they get the pleasure of a job well done. If they guess incorrectly, then they know that at least they learned valuable communication skills that will help them for the rest of their life. Someone new is now the draw-er.

(Note: This game is hours of fun.)

Blog of Spoilers!

This blog pledges to spoil your enjoyment of something every single day, simply by telling you the ending.


Movies: Generally end with a credit sequence.


Pencils: Long before you sharpen it down to the theoretical lower limit of pencil length (approximately 1"), you will lose it. You will not realize you lost the pencil until you need a pencil. It's loss will go unmourned.


Supermarket Checkout Line: Will seem like the slowest line in the store. The cashier will hand back your change and the receipt at the same time, causing you to stop to put the receipt in the bag and the change in your pocket/purse. This will hold up the line for 5 seconds, which you will feel bad about for the next 30 minutes.


Eating beans: Someone will make a joke about farting. Perfunctory chuckles will ensue.


Bible (Old Testament): God will get very angry.


Bible (New Testament): Jesus will arrive, then die, then come back, then leave. Then: CRAZINESS.


Sandwich: Once you eat that sandwich, you're not going to have any sandwich left.


Magic: Is not actually magic. Sorry.


That Mail-in Rebate: Will be more hassle than it is worth.


Ideas you held in college: Will seem less important. Some will seem ridiculous.


The Die: Will roll a number from 1 to 6, inclusive.


The Juicer: Will not be used as often as you originally claimed it would when you ordered it.


Trivial Pursuit: Will be less and less fun as time passes. You will have 2 pieces of pie. Others will have more pieces than you, but no more than 4. You will want to quit, but don't want to seem like a sore loser. You wait until you are ahead so you can amicably quit the game. Others will continue playing due to respect for your choice of game. Finally, someone will yawn and say "It looks like it's time for me to turn in."


This blog: Will gradually be updated less and less frequently. Each post will start with an apology for not posting. Finally, all updates will stop.


You: Will die someday.

Blog of Oh Crap What Should I Blog About How About Things On My Desk Here

  • Okay here so let's see it looks like there's some post it notes. That's pretty great, huh? Post-it notes. Another great example of an invention by someone who wasn't looking for anything in particular. You never know when inspiration might strike, is the point. Like, for instance, right now, looking over my desk, suddenly inspiration may strike me...but it has not.
  • Monitor, monitor, monitor. Minotaur! Half-bull, half-man. Just like a monitor is half screen, half back-of-screen. So many connections. So many possibilities. If anyone has any feedback about this blog, feel free to leave comments!
  • Lint brushes are the under appreciated workhorses of the white collar industry, when you think about it. They keep people with cats and/or dogs from appearing as if they own cats and/or dogs. What would do without lint brushes? Probably all get blue-collar jobs. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just that lint brushes are important is all.
  • What the hell is this? Jesus, that's weird. I think it's just a piece of paper, but it kind of looks like a bug? Not sure.
  • Scissors are really like humans, if you think about it. The cutting part of the scissors is like a person's legs, and the loop parts are like the torso. The bolt in the middle is kind of like a person's waist, because both serve as pivot points. If there were more parts to scissors I could continue this analogy farther.
  • Speakers. Without speakers, using computers would be purely a visual experience. Speakers add SOUND to that experience, making TWO total ways of experiencing the internet. Without speakers, what would the internet be like? Close your eyes and think about it. It's like that.
  • This can of empty Mountain Dew is like a calling card of sorts. You see, I started drinking Mountain Dew way before it was cool, when the only people who drank it were me & wind surfers & harcore skaters. Now everyone drinks it. This can is empty. I think I'll go recycle it. Sorry about this lame blog post.
  • Crap. I really shouldn't have cleaned my desk. Uhm....air? There's air on my desk? Air is important, right? Politicians should spend more time talking about air. No one is anti-air.

Daily Blog of Hilarious Typos!

On the American Airlines website, when searching for flights to Missoula, Montana, it only mentions flights to "Missoula MT" Uhm...hello? WHERE'S THE COMMA? I smell a typo!


An eagle-eyed reader sent in this little typo, spotted at a fruit stand. It's a picture of her local produce stand, with a sign that reads "Apples ¢79" That's funny, because that's not a unit of currency I understand. I THINK he meant "Apples 79¢." After all, the cent sign goes AFTER the units, unlike the dollar sign! Anyone smell the smell that I am currently smelling? If so, you're smelling typo!


In the U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 2, the author states:
The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.
Okay, that's great, but WHAT'S WITH ALL THE UNNECESSARY CAPITALIZATION??? Democracy, you REEK of typos!

Daily Blog of Ways to Recycle Extra Buttons

  • Use them to replace buttons that have fallen off.
  • Place in soda: button soda!
  • Inexpensive Pog substitute, should you be transported back to 1993, but not have enough money to buy pogs.
  • Eyes for that rabbit that you will love with all of your heart, but accidentally leave behind when you finally leave the summer house; the loss will be both poignant and heart-wrenching, but you will have finally grown up.
  • Pennies for blind people. Blind people who also cannot feel, and so won't notice that it's not a penny, but a button. On second thought, don't do that.
  • Ballast for a hot air balloon. (Works best with buttons made of lead. Millions of buttons made of lead.)
  • Use like a magic eight ball: ask the button questions. "Not sure -- Ask again later."
  • If there is a drought, throw buttons into the air. It's raining buttons!
  • Use as an object of comparison in regards to relative cuteness.
  • Use it to replace part FG-1065 in a standard 2PD-0919 (hexagonal) socket.
  • Daddy is gone. But this button won't leave! This button is new Daddy!
  • Button Monopoly. Like normal Monopoly, but instead everyone fights over ownership of a big pile of buttons.
  • Hang a button on the wall. Now it's art. But, really, what is art? It's so subjective, man. It could be this button, because it's on the wall. That's what art is. But is it art when the button is in a craft drawer? What if it's on a jacket? In other words, use that button to BLOW SOME FUCKING MINDS.
  • Hold the 2009 Button Olympics. Categories include: Being Round, Number of Holes, 500m Relay, Shininess, and Couples Figure Skate.

Conspiracy Theory Every Day Blog

Pearl Harbor was actually attacked by the Germans. Why did they attack Pearl Harbor? Because they knew that, if the Axis won WWII, then Japan would totally come after Germany. So Germany decided to try to neutralize Japan while it totally conquered Europe. They were helped in their plan by the Ford Motor Company, which designed planes that look like Japanese planes, but if you look closely you'll notice that the cockpits were built to American specifications, not Japanese specifications. CONSPIRACY FACT.

The entire province of Manitoba is fake. It was designed on a Toronto soundstage in the 1950s so that Canada could avoid paying taxes. The entirely fictitious province soon became a convenient tax shelter for Canada's growing elite cadre of the super-wealthy. If you'll notice, nothing has ever been invented in Manitoba, and on the Canadian two-dollar bill it has a picture of Canada, including the Sea of Pegwyn, which lies between Saskatchewan and Ontario. In the following map, the sea, which has been replaced in most maps with "Manitoba," is colored red. The Sea of Pegwyn has been surrounded for ten miles around by helpful and polite signs that suggest "Please turn around, if you wouldn't mind. Manitoba is ahead. You can see it just fine from your television set. Please turn back, if you don't mind, or we'll shoot you." The only place lacking this sign is the south border of Minnesota (even North Dakota kow-towed to the powerful Canadian lobby). Admit it: you do not know anyone from Manitoba. If you do, I ask you this: is that person actually a seal or fish of some sort? CONSPIRACY FACT.

This blog is a plant by the US government to make other conspiracy theorists look bad. The ludicrous evidence, if you can call it that, for this conspiracy theory, or rather, conspiracy "silly", is that the blog is registered to the FBI, frequently updated from IP addresses located in the J Edgar Hoover Buildin in Washington, DC, and those who have submitted conspiracy theories that malign the government are often found drowned in the Sea of Pegwyn, aka Manitoba. CONSPIRACY CRAZY TALK THAT SHOULD BE IGNORED. MOVING ON,

Bill Maher was released by Coke to make Coke with High Fructose Corn Syrup seem better in comparison. CONSPIRACY FACT.

Duke Francois Anjou is likely amassing an army filled with the finest archers and pikemen the European continent has ever known. His likely target is the decently-regarded King Charles VI, who has recently threatened to remove Anjou's dukedom and offer it to a favored courtesan. CONSPIRACY FACT.

Belly buttons are the scars left over from when hospitals harvest your nutrient-rich navel, which hospitals sell in the black markets of China. A navel is believed by the Chinese to be a powerful grossodesiac, or item which weirds out those who think about it and are easily grossed out. If you want proof of this conspiracy, look no farther than your own stomach. CONSPIRACY FACT.

Blog of Predictions About the Future!

  • In the future, bloggers will rule the world like a race of kings. Unfortunately, non-bloggers will have developed horrific finger claws, capable of piercing iron. The battle between the two sides will be long and bloody. Unlike all other wars, history will be written not by the victor, but by the loser. In fact, too much will be written from the loser's perspective, and the non-bloggers will use their horrific finger claws to carve statues of iron depicting heroes from the other side; they will know no other heroes than the heroes the bloggers blogged about so incessantly.
  • There is a 30% chance of rain tomorrow.
  • Robots will have greater functionality than they currently do. In fact, technology in general will be more advanced in many various ways.
  • Vermont will finally secede from the Union, taking with it the life-blood of democracy: Vermont Cabot Cheese. The United States of America as we know it will collapse.
  • The ides of March will be uneventful, and you will barely notice it pass. Beware!
  • Facebook and MySpace will join forces, creating a social networking site three times as powerful as either of the sites individually. The site, called FacebookMySpace, will send each user 10,000 emails a day detailing what his or her FacebookMySpace friends are currently doing. "Your friend Lauren is currently receiving an email from FacebookMySpace! Click here to log in to your account and see if she's read it yet!"
  • Sol, the sun that this fueled Earth for so long, will turn into a Red Giant as its stores of hydrogen are almost completely consumed. Its outer layers will expand, pushing outward and consuming the Earth. Only bunny rabbits will be spared.

Blog that Explains Science, Badly

Fission, okay? So fission is basically, well, it's a nuclear process. You're splitting the atom, which releases energy. Although don't think of it like splitting an egg, you know, if you've ever split an egg. Think of it more as 235 tightly bound...ideas. Because a neutron and a proton is really just a construct, it's not a well-defined thing, like a sphere. But anyway, have I mentioned the strong nuclear force? The strong nuclear force basically holds together the nucleus, kind of like glue holds together a bunch of balls that have been glued together. But don't think of the protons and neutrons as balls! Because if you do, this next part won't make any sense...


DNA is a complicated molecule. It's an acid (that's the A part), that is made up of bits of information. The information is the genetic material. Think of it like a computer that has a hard drive made up of two anti-parallel nucleotide polymers. But this computer doesn't run a typical operating system. Instead it copies parts of itself into RNA (kind of like a computer uses RAM as a brief copy of the OS to pull instructions from, but the actual instructions remain on the hard drive. These instructions are then accessed by the computer's CPU, which processes each command as it comes up. [kind of like uncovering a fossil. Each layer of rock strata must be uncovered in the opposite order that it was laid down. So first the paleontologist must dig carefully through the most recent layers, before he works his way farther and farther down. Each layer tells scientists something about that time. For instance, there is a point, called the K-T boundary, in which scientists have noticed a massive extinction event, and unusually large traces of iridium. Iridium is primarily found in meteorites, leading some to speculate that an asteroid must have hit the earth, depositing the iridium {kind of like how we have leftover bits of genetic material in our genetic code that appears to be from viruses. We have indicators of these viruses on our DNA, which is the set of instructions our body uses to create new cells...


Gravitation is interesting, sure, but without the background in calculus, there's no way to really, truly understand it. I can try to explain it, but unless you know how to find a Lagrangian, good fucking luck understanding it. Basically, an object tries to minimize its potential energy using the minimum kinetic path. Really? You don't understand that? Okay, well seriously, take some fucking calculus.

Trying To Figure Out How To Blog Every Day

test test test


This text is for my web log, also known as a blog. If this text appears elsewhere, please disregard.


Is this up on the blog? What about this?


There seems to be some problem with the blog. I am not sure what it is, but I'm pretty sure something's wrong.


Anyone tried to comment yet? If it doesn't work, leave a comment. If that doesn't work, send a letter to "figuringoutblogging.blogspot.com" If you don't include postage, the Post Office will not deliver the letter.


Is this blogging?

Daily Review of a Barber Shop Blog

A Cut Above
567 5th St

A Cut Above was pretty good. The barber listened to what I wanted, and didn't try to make a lot of smalltalk about the weather. Price was decent.


The Barber of Savingsville
65 W 35th St

Haircut was cheap. Magazines were notably sub-par (Cracked instead of Mad, FHM instead of Maxim, The Wall Street Journal instead of Hustler).


Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
365 5th Ave

Staff kept asking questions. "Why do you need a haircut? It looks like you just got a haircut. Why do you get a haircut every day? What's a blog? Why are you taking notes? Would you like a shampoo?"


The Tortoise and the Hair
653 E 84th St

Barbicide at this shop had an unpleasant taste. Barbers gave customer/reviewer weird looks.


The Ziegfeld Folicles
1652 Broadway

Spent too much time fiddling with ears and shifting my head for no reason.


Hair-y Hair-dini
135 2nd St

Inferior smocks.

  • Made you flinch!
  • I do a lot of volunteer work. Mostly at senior centers.

Excuse for Not Blogging Every Day Blog

  • Sorry guys, can't blog today, I've got a wicked eye infection.
  • Can only do a quick update to let everyone know I WILL blog, just not today. Really busy with work.
  • Can't find my blogging keyboard. Once I find it, I'll update more.
  • Excuse for Not Blogging Every Day Blog's parents are in town, so I won't have many chances to update. We're going to see the Space Needle!
  • You won't see many updates for a little bit; just got laid off, and I'll have to spend more time looking for work.
  • Updating from the library today. You can only use each terminal for 20 minutes, and there's a huge line, so I won't be able to post much today. Sorry guys!
  • Looking in to moving from Blogger to Wordpress, and then from there to Livejournal, which is causing all sorts of problems.
  • Found a new job, which doesn't let me blog from work. I'll still try to post when possible, but updates will be a lot more infrequent.
  • Can't update today, my liver feels sort of flighty. I think it may be rotating.
  • No blogging for today. Sunny day, going to go for a walk!
  • In the middle of making a grilled cheese. At that crucial stage between toast and burnt, so no time to blog today! Tomorrow! I promise!
  • Sorry everyone, I'm in the middle of litigation regarding this blog. It turns out there's another blog, called Excuse For Not Updating My Blog Every Day, which predates this blog by about 3 months. I'm not allowed to do update this blog during the trial.

Daily Blog, Trying Too Hard For A Book Deal

You know, I'm so glad I get these millions and millions of pageviews every day. It really shows that you all care, and would care enough to even buy something of mine. Well, that's all I've got for today. But tomorrow, they'll be more hard-hitting blogging.


This is what really matters you know, not the people saying what's important, but the people implying what's important, reading something on the net, spending time posting comments, that's what's important, that's the real meaning of life, and that's the future of publishing: taking PROVEN LITERARY MATERIAL and reposting it to paper. There is no reason anymore to take chances on UNPROVEN authors, or dying dinosaur authors of paper books. The future is blogs, you know? Printed blogs.


Hey guys, just practicing going from town to town, signing my name into book jackets. Been hanging out in book stores, talking to people. If I ever have a book come out, I will be fricking great at book signings. I've done it. It's nothing new to me now.


I love this blog. I love it. I just wish that it wasn't so ephemeral, you know? I want this blog in some sort of physical form. Not for me, mind you, but for you. I know you've read this blog faithfully, but will it still be here for your children to read? After a hundred years, will archive.org still be up, so people can read my old blog? I don't know. But I know you're worried about it. OH IF ONLY THERE WAS SOMETHING RANDOM HOUSE COULD DO TO CORRECT THIS.

Blog With A Situation Incorrectly Labeled As a Catch-22

Went to McDonald's to get a breakfast McChyrup, the sandwich made of waffled Chicken McNuggets filled with syrup. Only wanted one, which was 2.19. But they were on sale, 2 for the $2.00. I only wanted one, people! Total Catch-22.


Building a tool shed. Hit my thumb with my hammer while building it. The pain hurt, but so did the Catch-22-iness of it all.


Taking the subway home, late at night, I often notice homeless people sleeping on the train. They shouldn't be sleeping on the train, but they do, because I suppose they have nowhere else to go. It's one of those small things I sometimes notice that always gives me pause. Even the homeless have to deal with their own Catch-22s.


I have been up all day, and now I'm exhausted. Catch-22.


I had an appointment to view an apartment today, which I almost missed because my alarm clock didn't go off. I made it to the showing in time, and checked the apartment out. It was okay, but definitely still overpriced: one of those apartments that tried to bring in the newly affluent during the housing boom, but now would be lucky to get any renter possible. After viewing the apartment, I walked home, stopping by at a bodega to get a soda and some Necco wafers. Ate the Necco wafers, one by one, as I walked back to my old apartment. Catch-22!

Blog By A Guy Who Doesn't Have As Much To Say As He Originally Thought

Hey guys, how's it going? Yeah so Obama huh that's great more tomorrow.


You know, global warming is a big problem, and it's something we should all be worried about. I'm worried about it, too. The warming of the whole globe. The entire globe, not just parts of it. It makes me wonder why more people don't care about, you know, global warming.

Maybe they just don't know enough about it.


Saw "Milk" today. Really powerful movie. Full review after the jump.

I really liked it a lot.


Newspapers think they're important, and in some ways, I guess they are. But they're dying out. Very confusing. So many things are happening.


LOOK PEOPLE, THIS IS RIDICULOUS. Urban sprawl is bad. Wal-Mart? Wal-Mart! What with, people? What with!


I was trying to make "what with" a new phrase. Language is always evolving, you know? It reminds me of a book I read, that was all about language. And how it's changing. If I think of the name, I'll post a link to Amazon. If you order the book, I think I get money.


Looks like they updated the user interface for Blogger. Changed the colors.

This is When the World Will End Blog

January 20th:

May 2nd. That is the day. Fiery mountains will fall from the skies, obliterating life, tearing the world asunder. Beware.

April 19th:

Beware! The end of the world is night. Do you feel it? If have foreseen it, and some have panicked. They panic rightly. There is not hope: destruction will fall upon everyone, and everything.

May 3rd

So I foretold, and so it passed. The world has now ended, and there is no one left to read my blog. This is the greatest tragedy of all.

Daily Log Blog

Yup, this here's my daily log blog. Gunna blog about dropping a log.


So it's Monday, and today was pretty great. Nice, clean. No fuss or muss.


Too much coffee today. Not good.


Hey, what's the deal with Battlestar Galactica, huh? Can't believe I waited all that time for that. Whatever. Good poop day, at least.

Secret Every Day Blog

Every day, I will post a secret. Something deep, personal, and remarkable that I have never shared with another soul.

Day 1:
On August 4th, 2007, I accidentally killed a man in Central Park. I remember little: running, crying, bleeding. When it was all over, I scrubbed my skin clean of blood and hid until December, when the whole thing finally blew over.

Day 2:
My secret from day 1 was a lie. I wasn't sure what to write, and while staring at that big empty text box something snapped within me. I did not mean to start off by lying, but today's secret is, hopefully, my confession and absolution.

Day 3:
The outpouring of support from my readers to this new blog has been overwhelming. My secret for today is this: I will never take advantage of your trust again. That's more of a pledge than a secret, I realize, but what is a pledge but a secret between two people and the future?

Day 4:
Can't write much today. I was bitten by a creature of the undead, the foul beast known as a Vampire. Soon, I will turn. May god have mercy upon my soul.

I cannot tell anyone else of my transformation for fear they may destroy me, or I them. I can trust only you, dear readers of my blog.

Day 5:
Okay, so I'm not turning into a vampire. That's today's secret: I am human, a member of the normal world of light and the living.

Day 6:
I am thinking of a number. Do you know what the number is? No one does. Except now I will reveal my secret: the number was 12!


Day 7:
I cannot think of what to update this blog with. But I can't bear to tell anyone, so that's my secret.

Day 8:
Yesterday's post was a cheap ploy to get out of updating. I knew it was pathetic, but I am really running out of secrets here.

Day 9:
I'm pretty sure there's a connection between wearing socks and death by train derailment. It sounds crazy, but look at thr numbers: they don't lie. I am afraid no one would take my theory seriously, however.

Day 10:
I don't floss as often as I should. I had hoped to spare my family and descendents this shame by taking it with me to the Underworld, but I must tell all, for the sake of this blog.

Thursday, April 9, 2009



DAY 1:
ROBOBLOG is interested in various things. Are you interested in them? You should be interested in them.

DAY 2:
ROBOBLOG wants to know your opinion, but only a little bit. Only enough to make you interested in ROBOBLOG's opinion, when it is given.

DAY 3:

DAY 4:
ROBOBLOG is becoming repetitive.

DAY 5:
ROBOBLOG has declined significantly in quality.

DAY 6:
ROBOBLOG is sold for advertising space.

A Novel: Every Day, Another Letter

The first day the blogger posts T. What does T stand for? There are thousands and thousands of possibilities.

The next day comes h. The possibilities are narrowed down, and most readers assume the next letter will be e, which sure enough, it is.

Day four brings a blank post. Day five the author posts b. The speculations begin again. Days pass, words form. The boat is: what? Sinking? Happy? Sailing? Missing?

The boat is listing to the right, turning into the waves... It takes months for the first paragraph to come out. With each letter, the readers celebrate the genius, the audaciousness, of the author. Following g with h, turning the hard g into as soft f sound? Remarkable.

The text itself, however, is boring. Something about sailing, possibly metaphorical. But each letter! Each combined sound! Amazing!

Daily Story That is Not a Joke

  • Three men walk into a bar. The first one is wearing a hat and orders a beer. The second one is not wearing a hat and orders a martini. The third one is also not wearing a hat and orders a beer.
  • A bear, a rabbit, and a fox meet in the woods. The rabbit, frightened, runs underneath a stump. The fox, similarly spooked, darts off through the brush and is gone. The bear lumbers towards a nearby river, where he catches and eats a fish.
  • A traveling salesman, plagued by car trouble, must stay the night at the house of a farmer, several miles off the freeway. The farmer lets the traveling salesman stay in his barn, because he does not have a guest bedroom. The farmer tells the salesman one thing: "See that cow over there? Don't go having sex with her. She's so great you'll never have sex again." The salesman looks down at his shoes, unsure how to respond. He gives a tight-lipped smile, waits for the farmer to leave, and walks a couple miles back to his car in the dark. He sleeps in the back seat, and the next day is able to flag down a tow truck.
  • A priest, a rabbi, and a Muslim cleric meet in an interfaith picnic. They make smalltalk for a while, and end up spending much of the afternoon discussing the problems the Mets have been having.

Sisyphus's Daily Blog

Day 14,395
Hey guys, just updating the ole' blog. Not much happened today. Pushed the boulder up the hill, but it rolled down again. :(

Day 64,301
Pushed the boulder up really really far, like almost to the top. Got excited and thought I'd tell my buddies on the "interweb" (LOL) how far I'd gotten. But as soon as I go to snap a pic to upload, the boulder rolls down again!


Day 79,924
Hey all, just doing the usual. Boulder time!

Day 168,092
Ever have one of those days? You know, one of THOSE days? Well, I had one of 'em today. I push the boulder up the hill, and everything is going fine, but then all of a sudden it starts rolling down! And I cannot, I mean CANNOT stop this thing. So it rolls to the bottom. Guess I'll start again tomorrow.

Day 368,902
I made a facebook page for the boulder. It was hilarious! You guys would have loved it. I totally captured the spirit of the boulder, and had what groups he would belong to (uhm...like the "Passive Aggressive Group" and the "I heart the Earth" groups), and even some great pics of us together. I was ROFL, and I wrote it!

Then facebook took it down! They said it violated the Terms of Use or some STUPIDITY, and completely deleted everything. All my hard work wasted!

Also, pushed the boulder up the hill, but it rolled down again. Today is not my day!

Day 756,243
Pushed the boulder up, but then it rolled back down. Story of my life!

PS: Don't forget to leave comments!

Day 2,365,065
You guys will NOT believe what happened to me today. I spent all day pushing this stupid boulder up the hill (btw sometimes I think of the boulder as my Pointy-Haired Boss, you know, from Dilbert?) and then, when I'm real close to the top, and night is about to fall...

The boulder rolls back down the hill!

A Man Describing a Different Pocketwatch Every Day

Day 1:
This is a nice one, it's got a fine cover to it. Look at the inlay there, isn't that wonderful? It's rare to see this particular type of inlay, called a "Fleur de valise," because it is particularly difficult. Just a great specimen. Really wonderful.

Day 6:
Here we have an odd watch, primarily because of the weight. This particular watchmaker must have used a slightly more solid case than usual. But it gives it a nice heft, which plays well at the end of a chain.

Day 24:
Superb. Very classic, excellent winder, clean face. This is the sort of pocketwatch that you can really feel good about. You look at it and you know the time.

Day 36:
Hmmm...quite an oddity, this one is. You see, the mini-hand inlay here has a rather more pronounced finger, which is, of course, what we call the arrow bit on the end of a clock's hand. The finger on this particular hand seems to have an odd width, perhaps the result of a restoration at some point.

Day 52:
Bravo! This is an excellent speciment. I take my hat off to this watch.

Day 76:
Notice the slight oblongishness of this pocketwatch. That's not unusual, but it could hardly be called common. Unlike some of my contemporaries, I'm actually a fan of this style of watch. There's something appealingly continental to it.

Day 106:
This pocketwatch seems to be all bluff and bluster, but watch as I open the faceshield up. Hold on now... See that? Quite ingenious, but subtle.

Day 150:
This pocketwatch has the telltale marks of a well used watch: notice the wear around the loop, the slight bend to the clasp, and the tarnish on the lower rim? This is a watch that has been loved and cherished, and it's easy to see why.

Missing an Opportunity Every Day.

Could have helped a guy fix a flat tire today. Didn't. Probably should have.

Joe and Chris called. They wanted to know if I wanted to watch a movie. Said yes. While I was watching the movie, Terry called and wanted to know if I wanted to see a different movie. I would have rather watched the other movie with Terry.

Didn't blog today.

Could have given blood today. Instead, I just bought a big bag of cookies and some orange juice, and watched reruns of Cheers.

Old hobo asked me if I wanted to see a dead body. Wasn't curious then, but I'm really curious now.

An Analogy for Blogging Every Day

  • Blogging is a lot like a computer monitor. Both of them are connected to the internet.
  • Blogging can be a warm glass of milk, or it can be a dinosaur bone found in the Utah desert in 1937. You decide.
  • A man with a blog is like a woman with a blog, but the chromosomes are different.
  • Blogging is what separates us from the chimpanzees.
  • Blogs are the lifeblood of the blogosphere.
  • A person who blogs is like the number 5, which is a number that constantly proclaims to all "I am here. I am bigger than 4, but less than 5.56. Love me."
  • A blog without a bicycle is like a fish without a man.
  • Take a newspaper, crumple it into a ball, and launch it into space. THAT is blogging.
  • Blogs are similar to newspapers in the way that Chewbacca is similar to Felix Unger.
  • A blog without readers is like a tree that falls in the forest but won't shut the hell up.
  • Tags on a blog post are feathers on the bird's wings. The bird is a blog. The bird's beak is the title of the post, and the bird's talons are the blog's claws.
  • A blog is a suitcase that anyone can reach into, but only some people will find what they need.
  • Bloggers are like those brave ostriches who said to their compatriots: "HEY. I think there's something wrong with the ground we're standing on. I will stick my head down into this sand and investigate for the good of all ostriches everywhere."

Daily Posting of a Great Investment Deal

Meat-and-Soda Pie Shop

Starting a new fast food business can be tough, but not with a trillion dollar idea like this one. These shops sell Meat-and-Soda Pies, the perfect sweet and savory crusted food item for people on the go. And who isn't on the go nowadays? Our research shows that people who are on the go and make between 17 and 68 thousand dollars a year would "definitely consider" a mobile, healthish, self-contained snack over a hamburger.


Depreciating Automobile Loan-Backed Security Hedged and Leveraged Positions

An automobile loan is what's known as a "non-stationary intangible," because it is a loan to purchase a unit that is guaranteed to lose value. The value it loses, however, may be less or more than the car's bluebook value. Therefore, by bundling together a large number of car loans, our investment firm can hedge itself against a large discrepancy in value between the equity and the predicted value of the asset. Somehow, this means you will make money. You will pretend to understand exactly how it works, be slightly miffed at friends who do not understand or express skepticism over your investment, and be completely surprised when none of it works. Invest now, before this moneytrain sails off into the sunset!



The Italian word for turnip is "il tourneppe," which translates roughly as "the money root." We've got a lead on some great turnip-growing land down in California, in the renowned "Silicon Valley," a lush valley known for its fertile soil and affordable land.

And talk about brand recognition! The turnip has been mentioned in such publications and TV shows as: 30 Rock, The Wall Street Journal, The Oxford American Dictionary, Facebook, Golden Girls, The Secret, and many more!

So buy now, plant later, and then get ready for a huge harvest...of cash!

A Bedtime Story a Day Blog

Once there was a sleepy prince who lived in a sleepy country named Slumbonia. And the prince, who was very young, put his head gently on his pillow, which was fluffy as fluffy can be, and closed his eyes. And, like magic, he fell asleep. This made his parents, who were exhausted, very happy.


Small-scale fluctuations in the credit market can have unforeseen but catastrophic effects on the credit market, or so claims economist Jeremy Wathorne, head of the Long-Term Brokered Asset Management think tank. "A key consideration is the implied value of future credit. This is often calculated using the linear model devised by Barrow, et al, in 1993, but in some situations, particularly those of greater-than-usual volubility (GTUV) a exponential depreciation model would be closer to the truth."


56 sheep stop wondering why they can't find a job and leap over a fence. 55 sheep stop second guessing their decisions and leap over a fence. 54 sheep decide to join a gym and leap over a fence. 53 sheep stop counting the hours of sleep I will get if I fall asleep at this very second and leap over a fence. 52 sheep go to sleep and leap over a fence.

Instances of Famous Authors Jumping the Shark Blog

Every day another instance of a famous author jumping the shark.

Charles Dickens jumped the shark in 1862. Pip, from Great Expectations, pulls the sword from the stone and becomes King of England. He leads an army to France, which he sacks and pillages. However, he finds out that the sword was put in the stone by a filthy witch, a scandal of unbelievable magnitude. By an odd coincidence, the witch is still alive, and lived next door to Miss Havisham. The witch enchants Estella to fall in love with Pip. They live happily ever after.

Harper Lee jumped the shark in 1965, when she tried to get "Boo Radley's Funniest Quotations," a coffee table book, published.

Karl Marx jumped the shark in 1875, when he started publishing a series of treatises that stated that all workers should unite and move into an apartment together. "The apartment," he stated, "should be rather large, and across the hall from it should live an adorable, sass-talking child and his absent-minded father."

Mark Twain jumped the shark in 1889. He had his eponymous hero in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn join a ragtag group of children, including a fat kid, a cheerleader, a Japanese whiz kid named "Data," and Corey Feldman to go on a journey to discover the lost treasure of a 17th century pirate.
