D-190: Some Reader Feedback

Pride’s bold new web site design has the reader’s in an uproar; some love it, others not as much, but nearly everyone seemed to enjoy calling him names. Let’s take a minute to respond to some of the comments:

"I noticed the change in background FIRST!!!!"

Excellent work! The rest of you could learn a little something we military men call “Attention to Detail” from our friend MyNuttsLookLikeButts. Come on people! Get in the game!

"…I'm stoned…"

I agree, you are very likely stoned. I believe my rant on Harold and Kumar may have inadvertently turned up some hippies who were google searching for a fan site. Welcome godless hippies, all are appreciated here. Each uptick of the hits counter strokes my ego equally.

"I am embarrassed I know who did your website. He did a great job...even if he is gay and will sleep with a woman....poor guy."

I have already addressed this in the comments section of Potpourri, but it is worth taking another look at. Let’s start with the cryptic phrase “even if he is gay and will sleep with a woman....” What the fuck does that mean? Explain yourself.

"As much as I like the new 'snazzy' setup you got going on artistically here, and as inspiring as it is to see something new each day, I think you should maintain artistic rights on the main banner...the original one was classic -- I mean, it's on the T-shirt -- I vote to keep that as the main banner regardless of the changes to the rest of the interface..."

I actually addressed this issue with Mr. Pride, and he responded by deleting my T-shirt image all together – I realized I don’t know how to fix any of this shit, and subsequently decided not to fuck with Pride anymore. Artistic rights have been surrendered, and I don’t have time or money for any more litigation until the unfortunate fence incident is resolved.

By the way the site looks great and since I am a flamin' homo that is high praise."

It’s true, flaming homos do have great taste. I would also like to point out that I am not a fan of the “i-n-apostrophe” in place of the “i-n-g,” except in instances of dialogue, when your are trying to nail down a local dialect. It doesn’t save time, as hitting the “g” key is as easy as the apostrophe key, and I don’t see the nuance or other value added by doing so. But that’s just my opinion.

"I just read the story again, forwarded it to my lovely little jewbird and she said you're an awesome writer."

This has nothing to do with Pride’s redesign – but I like being called an “awesome writer,” and it probably wouldn’t kill any of you to complement me more often. Also, I thought it was necessary to point out that “jewbird” is a skinny, flightless bird originating in Brooklyn but are abundantly found all along the north shore of Long Island. Their natural predators include the GOP and most allergens.

"Make the paragraphs separate you faggy little artistic retard.

Otherwise, good job on the display of your gay little skill that captured your interest after cruising through the kid section of Myspace."

Yes, the text is a mess. Something needs to be done about this, as writing this post was difficult and time consuming with all the formatting issues. The insults seemed unnecessary, but funny.

Well, there you have it; the people have spoken, take it or leave it. While it seems opinion varies wildly, one thing is certain; my readers do not appear to be very smart.

Stop being such a sissy. You think you agree most with my suggestions because I was nice?

Think about it.

Also, I feel for the T-shirt losers who bought a t-shirt and now they're getting screwed. Your boy is pissing almost three people off. And counting!!

What I ment to say was " I am embarrassed I know who did your website. He did a great job...even if he is gay and will NEVER sleep with a woman....poor guy."

I got super trashed at the Fallon O-Club and wrote it when I got back.....stop judging.

@ "Mr. Pride" - Blasphemy that you would not appreciate the original banner design

MatthewGuba said...

on a side note -- is the aforementioned "Mr. Pride" an army guy, because the sailor figure in that new banner looks quite gay.

I didn't know if this was intentional, or subconscious or what...

...not that there's anything wrong with that
