Y'know, this has been a long time a-comin'. ABftS (both of 'em, as far as I can tell) and I have been cross-commenting on each other's blogs since around the time I started getting into blogging, especially once I really got into bloggin'.
I've hailed them before as greater writers than I, and this remains true - these dudes have a terrific writing style and unlike me they're actually talented enough shoopers (MS Paint style yo) to draw comics that get their point across.
And that point is fuckin' hilarious.
WIth a twisted sense of humor that rivals yours truly, they're also more dedicated than I am, able to focus themselves on one project at a time and get it done with record speed. Plus they got this whole drinkin'-buddy-bromosexuality goin' on that's right up there with Harold and Kumar.
Or me and Ace. Y'know what I mean.
Anyway, go check 'em out, they're the new featured link~! Let 'em know That Bastard sent ya for an additional 25% more shower.
By the by, didja know they've written two books that have sold quite well? Hell, they're both cheap enough for ME to wanna buy 'em...'cept you gotta have a Kindle to get the 99 cent price tag.

On A Capellas
So, I've got these a capella's I've done (singing without instruments, metronome, or any other device outside of me, myself, and I), but everytime I look at them or listen to them I frown. I've been told that I auto-correct depending on what everyone else is playing, and that's cool...but I find it meh when I don't have anything else to correct myself by.
Plus I'm currently in a wave of "I dislike my voice" again. You can usually tell when I'm like this when the uploads to my Youtube channel (/JDWForever, a super-old account) slow down to a crawl. It's why I do 'em in spurts of 50-100 at a time, y'know?
Anyway, I'm going to be doing a few duets with the lovely and talented model Vorel, who's own singing voice makes mine so humble it ain't even funny...but she's still deigned to sing with me. Maybe now I can auto-correct myself? We'll see.
If you wanna get on the list of people to view these (and the a capella's I've already done), lemme know - once I'm happy with my own and she gives me the go-ahead, they'll be released for public scrutiny.
In the meantime, if you want on that list (Yes, Shocky, I see your hand, sit down and stop fidgeting dammit I already have you on the list) hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org...
On second thought, ignore that - I have two a capellas up in the New Shiznits playlist set to public. Go find 'em, lemme know what you think.
Dude, how much content have I been putting out? Jesus.
You DO realize I have a handy-dandy tab up there on the top bar, right? You just click on it and you can check out the playlists I've assembled of my bullshit.
I'm currently in the process of uploading EVEN MORE stuff and screwing around with that "new shiznits" playlist, but hey you can also check out all my other playlists and hear my glorious golden voice screaming raucously into your ear.
What do you mean that doesn't sound very cool? Hey, fuck you buddy - plenty of people LIKE having me aurally rape them.
Oh Google Ads, you know me so well!
Oh. Oh baby. Is it bad that I can still be juvenile enough to see that on Google Ads and just suddenly burst out laughing?
Follower Woes...Yet Again!
So, here's what I"ve done:
>Advertised through Google AdWords
>Advertised through a blog that's more popular than I am (I'm still gonna do it again though - why not, right?)
>One interview, a pre-interview and two guest posts, once again blogs that are more popular than I am.
New followers gained?
Hmmmm. If I start recruiting directly from chat rooms, will Googles haet me? I'm at the point where it doesn't matter (did it ever? I don't suck up to anyone or anything godammit) so long as I get the numbers up. Don't get it twisted - I know it's at this point that some get discouraged from blogging and just fade away...but I've already put too much goddamned work into these things for me to simply settle down and bare throat.
Besides, a Writer must have an Audience. They're our beloved, our enemy, our love, our hated foe.
The songs and poems and stuff I write, how can I simply settle with a few dedicated followers (whom I'll never forget, regret, or NOT respond to, y'know?) when there ARE blogs out there who update only once a month with one or two blogs...yet I have eight that I update weekly.
I think that's what keeps me going, outside of you guys - my sheer hatred of blogs like that.
So anyway, the new angle is this: I'm gonna request EVERYONE who reads me to re-tweet my tweets, make a faecbawks share update thing whenever I do concerning my blog updates, and just generally whore for me.
Do YOUUUUUUU want to whore for me? Well, here's my info up to date:
FACEBOOK: : /ThatBastardFromBellingham (email@example.com)
Follow all eight blogs. Hit me up at these media places. Spread me around into the mouths of all your friends like a fucked up ecstasy rave.
In the very least, this seems like a more honorable way of advertising than, say, adding a "LOL HIT ME BACK ON MY WEBSITE PLEASE I NEED VIEWS AND STUFF AND FOLLOW ME OH GOD PLEASE" and my url link under it. Instead, I'm puttin' out the lines to see who wants to join my Ho Harem I MEAN PIMP TRAIN, PIMP TRAIN!
I MEAN, OH SHIT...UH...NEVERTHEFUCKMIND
Sincerely and slightly sweatily,
P.S. - To my followers who DO do such things as a "follow and comment back" and add their URL's to the bottom of the commentary, hey - I ain't got no hate for you. Trust me, if I did I would've deleted yer ass fast, quick and hard. I'm decisive like that.
On the other hand, hey if it works for you cool. I have no hate in my heart for anyone who employs such techniques, I'm just sayin' it ain't for me, y'know? Just doesn't feel right, and I never remember to do it anyway.
...so, care to be appreciated? :D
Also, you can still catch my text ad and I even plan on an upcoming image ad campaign alongside the text ad over at Zombies Everywhere (http://www.zombieseverywhere.org/), so yeah, there ya go.
Doin' big thangs, makin' big moves yo.
Personal blog filled with fun and frivolity aplenty~! Come get offended with the best of 'em. CURSE WORDS!
