Return of the MKMOT (May 14, 2012)

Hey kids!

The name's Skeevy. Marv, if you'd like. You don't know me, but you do know CJ, and I know (one version of) CJ really, really, well. So what say we do each other a favor and employ the transitive property or some similar balogarithm and be friends? We don't have to be "besties" or anything, but we can at least tolerate each other, no? Because if there's one thing that this here balog is known for, it's tolerance. And not just because you all pound Zima so prodigiously.That's strictly coincidental.

I know it's hard to get used to new faces. Especially if you're Charla Nash!1!! But there's no need to fret. I suspect that we'll still see CJ. And maybe even IronMike. He's a busy guy, so I'm happy to help, but I want to publicly state that this will always be his baby. I know this, because it was left for me inside of a semen-stained boxing glove on my doorstep. Looking a bit malnourished, if I must say. So let's nurse her back to health, on the fruitful teats of our collective bitchtits.

Whether you're fearful of change or excited by it, the important thing here is that reports of the balog's death have been greatly exaggerated. It was just the balog's "friend" Mark, with another one of his distasteful pranks. To be honest, that guy is kind of a dick. He plays with rifles, and takes his shirt off in bars and stuff. Plus, he thinks Friends is funny. Could he be any more insufferable??? [raucous laugh track] But I digress.

I could spend all day trying to garner your approval with words, but I've got a better idea. I'm going to post a video that is both relevant and enjoyable. Below that, there will be a space. In this space, you are going to engage in all kinds of chatter, ranging from powerfully poignant to the epitome of tomfoolery. Much of it may even be in some way connected to that other site where we tend to bump into each other. Does that sound like something you might be interested in???

I hope so, because the thread is open, like the bar at any civilized wedding.

  2. Guy Who Obsesses Bizarrely Over Whether People Who Create Free Blogs Will Put Bows On Them As If That Is Something That Is Not Completely Fucking Retarded To Even Momentarily Care AboutMay 14, 2012 at 8:49 AM

    Great! Because if there's one thing I lacked for during this blog's outage, it was a place to talk to strangers on the internet.

    1. "Check it out, I'm gonna make fun of this dude who enjoys this blog."

      - Guy who knows the "Guy who...." meme popular on this site, read the last post and all its comments, then came back often enough to catch this post with no notice, and was so excited he posted the 2nd (and probably the first) comment

  3. Now that the balog is back, it's time we tackle the important issues facing us these days. I am, of course, talking about the DUAN vs. TUAN conundrum.

    Pros
    DUAN:
    -Everybody knows about it.
    -Unlimited character limits for drunken ramblings.
    -..and more!

    TUAN:
    -Drunken ramblings are slightly less embarrassing the next day.
    -Character limit maximizes efficiency.
    -..and more!

    Cons
    DUAN:
    -Clogs up your comment history with frivolous discussion.
    -Music threads that are too long can really slow things down on your computer/smartphone/tablet.
    -..and more!

    TUAN:
    -Can be difficult to follow discussions with multiple people.
    -It dominates your news feed to the point where it can be difficult to keep up with everything.
    -Non-Deadspin followers of yours have no idea what the hell is going on, and do not like their feed being overrun by your stupidity.
    -..and more!

    Who ya got?

    1. I do find myself torn as well.

      TUAN: I do have some folks following me - whom I highly respect the fact that they follow me - and I'd like to think they follow me because I can be substantially funny some of the time. I don't want to be annoying to these folks. I realize this weekend, with TUAN, a lot found it funny and possibly some were annoyed. I didn't get any direct feedback to the latter.

      That being said, I will limit my TUANing to not offend any of the people that follow me that don't give a shit. But, if we can TUAN to where it is legitimately funny for most, why not? TUAN wasn't necessarily meant to be an inside baseball thing, just a blatant rip off of DUAN meant to create an open discussion on Twitter. Which, is stupid, because Twitter is just one big open discussion anyways.

      Also, if you have a conversation on twitter addressing fellow DSers via @ symbol, if any of your followers are not following the person or people you are addressing, it will not show up on their feed. I'm not sure if you all are aware of that.

  4. No snark-

    That is a great fucking song, and I never would have taken the time to go back and realize it. Thanks for that.

  7. Hey, that umpire strike three call reminds me of a movie, but I just can't place it. But I bet that movie ump is unimpressed. 3 comments in a row!

    1. I guess the fire marshals told the ninj squad that capacity is maxed out over at #yousawamovieonce.

      Good Lord.

      It's really something to see. Rosey8810 didn't bother with the clip, just dropped the Enrico reference.

    3. Canned Poodle must have heard about #yousawamovieonce being overcrowded, and tried to catch the next flight to #hineyholeisland before that filled up as well.

    4. Gamboa's right. The ninja added an extension to #yousawamovieonce.
