Evil is Lurking in this Box!!!

This is flippin’ hilarious, and it has the advantage of only being one minute long. Stupid F’n Posts is the best homegrown YouTube project I’ve seen in a long time, and I’m hoping it catches on. You can find a few more of these videos on their channel.

The narrator-guy is played by my bro’-in-law, who some of you might recall is a filmmaker from New Orleans. He’s about to release a documentary, and I’m sure you’ll get to read all about it here.

Since that video is so short, here’s another!

I told you today’s post would be brief and strange, didn’t I?

Have a fabulous week.

Merry Christmas to All!


Given the attitude we’ve developed here lately, this seems appropriate for Christmas Eve-eve. Tim Burton’s original “Nightmare Before Christmas” poem, narrated by Sir Christopher Lee.

Happy Christmas!

Dept. of Humorous Oversights


I discovered last night that I can build lists in my WordPress reader. I asked the two WordPressbloggers I talk to most often if they knew this, and they did not. Posted on Facebook and someone else told me they noticed it after one of the upgrades a few months ago.

MONTHS! I’m kicking myself.

Every list I have on Facebook and Twitter is to keep up with bloggers. Soon I shall have lists for that here, too.

Those of you who have wondered over the last few months why you see so little of me despite your faithful likes and comments are in luck.

The reason you’ve seen so little of me is that even though I follow a relatively small number of blogs, most of you get lost in my reader. I don’t have a lot of time to spend with the reader, and gave up on it awhile ago as useless for keeping up with anyone. Well, now I can keep up. I can carefully and deliberately build a set of small-ish lists along these lines.

  1. Friendly bloggers I interact with on three networks.
  2. My closest Tweeps.
  3. Photobloggers to share on Facebook.
  4. #SundayBlogShare pals.
  5. Regular commenters who I should be giving more attention to, because comments are the gold standard of engagement to me.
  6. People who like almost everything we post, but we just never talk.
  7. Bloggers I had friendly conversations with and linked to in the beginning, but who fell off the radar as I moved into other networks and had less time to scan the reader.
  8. People I know from specific Facebook groups.

Then I can use those lists to see who is not on my Twitter and Facebook lists but should be. You get the idea, eh?

Do you you use the lists in the reader? And can anyone tell me when they were implemented? At one point I bookmarked 75 blogs because that was the only way I saw to keep up with them.

And now you know what I am going to do . . . . .

My New Blog is Turning into Something Cool!

Just Gene’O has a sweet About page, sharing buttons, and tweaked settings. It’s still not connected to the rest of the social media, but the further along I get with it, the more I like it. Once I get it going, it will be something new and different. I’m liking it, and having my own images to work with is helping immensely.

I'm giving myself an honorary Versatile Blogger award for this one, but not to worry, I'm not nominating anyone today ;-)

I’m giving myself an honorary Versatile Blogger Award for this one, but not to worry, I’m not nominating anyone today 😉

Just Gene’O expresses my personality in a way that’s different from the other blogs I’ve built. I’m eager to see where it goes. I want to connect it to every social media account I own and kick it off already, but I know better 🙂 Patience is required here. If you’re following Sourcerer but  are unaware of my new blog, you might want to check it out. Aside from a Tweeted link, it’s a WordPress-only phenomenon right now.

I’m doing this one right.
