Gallery fans praise you like they should

Jen Li praises you. She doesn't get how to take a picture bigger than a book of matches but she praises you!

Dan Brill praises you creepily in his car by the side of the road.

Christy Ramsey praises you full frontal

Stacy Frazer praises you full frontal and is too cheap to pay for heat in her house.

Eva Halloween praises something somehow. *laughs nervously* Good job!

Nobody ever asked me what the first flash mob was but if they did I might say it was this video.  Bunch of fools dancing in front of a movie theater.  Little Richard Dreyfuss looking dude flipping all around.  Spike Jonez directed it and it was nominated for a bunch of Best Video awards in 1999.  I guess if you invent the whole idea of a flash mob then you deserve a couple of awards.  Can you imagine if someone had gotten the idea to do a flash mob back around the turn of the century?  You get 50 people in Grand Central Station back then to all start doing the robot at the same time and people probably would have called the Army.

You could get away with anything back then.  Doctors could prescribe a punch in the face as a remedy and you could still make sausage out of snakes and people.  A flash mob would have been beyond their comprehension.  And doing the robot?  How is it that in all the thousands of years of humanity nobody thought of doing the robot until the 80s?  Seems highly unlikely.  I find it much more plausible that the few people who DID do the robot were made into kings and queens and then didn't tell anyone how they did it so it would stay a secret.  Don't believe me?  Go look at some heiroglyphics.  Everyone in them is doing the robot and their society went defunct.  Damn.  I'm all sciencey.

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on Smashwords.com) and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Six years and counting....

    Wait, wait, wait. You picked this over Rockafeller Skank? That song is clearly superior, and I’m STILL not tired of it.

      This was a tough decision. But the banner pic was a gimme for this one. I have a lot to consider!

    White people who can’t dance probably shouldn’t.

    For the record, ghosts are ALREADY DEAD and therefore do not pray. We just flit about purgatory and snicker at the dumb stuff you guys wish for.
