Why?...Because I Can

So yesterday I bought a top of the line coffee maker for work and filled out the proper forms to get reimbursed. Everybody was pretty pleased with it. After work I went on a four and a half mile walk, took in the architecture and brainstormed a bit. Later at home, I watched a couple of my fave shows while documenting and dating future ideas for paintings, blog posts, and builds on my laptop. It was a pretty productive day all in all.

Did you ever see those blogs where the writer posts some kind of lurid nude pic that has absolutely nothing to do with their post? Like maybe they’re writing about something cute their kid did the other day while posting a pic of themselves spread eagle across a cheap motel bed. Or maybe they’re writing about their goings on during the day while posting a picture of a blonde getting reamed in the ass by two guys. Often times what they have to say isn’t particularly intelligent but people still come back for more because of the pictures. Weird, isn’t it?

And some deem themselves too popular to comment back to their public. What kind of human interaction is that? Granted, its everyone’s own prerogative to blog the way that they want, but sometimes you just have to wonder what their motives are. Does it do good for their ego to take in so many comments and offer nothing in return? Its like they dump on Blogland five times a day with unoriginal jokes and questions they already know the answers to for the sole purpose of generating comments. (Gasp!…Oh snap! No you didn’t, girlfriend!) So forget good writing…just fill Blogland with mindless dribble, accompany it with disjointed nude pics having nothing to do with anything and just watch the comments roll in.

I’ve seen it work well elsewhere. Lets see what happens here.

And what got your panties in a twist?

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

just doing my part to shake up the corperate conformists. My panties aren't in a bunch...my mood is actually very light. This wouldn't be the first time I've done something like this, so its pretty well expected of me. Just about every post I do, I'm exposing the seedy underbelly of all of us on here (including me) in one way or another...its just I don't always make it so apparent.

WELL! I've taken to filling blogland with mindless dribble because I got tired of sharing all my good writing and not getting any feedback. Apparently the masses love the mindless...Or maybe I'm just not popular enough to get feedback on it. OY I don't know. Maybe you have a clue...

tee hee


AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/6/2006 6:01 pm:
You are absolutely right...the masses do love the mindless. Why do you think Britney Speares, Paris Hilton, Thomas Kinkaid, Anne Geddes and The Gap are so popular? Good writing doesn't nessesarily bring in the readers. Boy do I know that. But I believe in staying true to your particular vision and blog with integrity. It takes awhile and you may never make it to the top doing that, but what you will get is a small corps of dedicated readers who adore your vision and to me...that is much more important.

I like everything you write. You don't have to put a nude pic up for me to read your blogs.


AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/6/2006 6:12 pm:
Thank you, dear. I value your continious support. Rest assured that I was being cynical and (beside this one post) I will not resort to mindless dribble and senseless nudity just to score a few more comments. Nudity that makes good sense...now thats a whole other story!

AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/6/2006 9:46 pm:
heh! senseless nudity? you? And I do like your jokes. As you write well and answer your comments, you were not my target audience. No need to change what you're doing. Actually, I had no one in particular in mind when I wrote this. its just something I've noticed a lot.

yes, that must strain the lower back...but assuredly I wouldn't know. I am one who answers every comment so yes, too many comments is too hard to manage. I always told myself that if I get to a point where I can't answer every comment it is time to leave. But many very popular bloggers do indeed answer all their comments so it seems to be more of a question of personal style. Pleased to meetcha as well. I found you through oddgirl and your alien probe post. It was funny stuff. Welcome here.

What's wrong with Thomas Kincade? He's The Master of Light(tm), you know.

I mean, I thought that was Vermeer in the 17th Century, but apparently not, as he never copyrighted the title. Although if ever the phrase "prior art" could be applied, then I think this would be the most suitable application.

By the way, I'm guilty of failing to reply to comments at my blog. All I can say in my defense is that if I did, then I would be expected to write another post and I'm still trapped in the Catch 22 of then feeling forced to write some vast magnum opus (even when I'm not, and most people prefer shorter posts anyway).

Did that even make any sense? No? Well, bugger.


AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/9/2006 12:43 pm:
ahhhh...after months of quietly stalking my blog, you chose the one and only post that I include a pic of a giant cock to comment. Is it any coincidence? Eh, no worries...I would have commented, too if somebody else posted this. If you enjoy safe, homoginyzed art that makes no waves and looks good in any dentist waiting room, then there is nothing wrong with Thomas Kinkaid.

While you may be guilty of not responding to your comments, you are at least a good writer from what I've seen. Just write that magnum opus and whatever else is in mind. People will read it. Not as many as say a short post asking a simple question, but people will read it and appreciate it anyway. Did that make any sense? No? Well, bugger.

I still fill my blog with my writings even if no one looks or comments... I can't bring myself to lower my standards.

If my boobs were bigger I'd be a BBW!


AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/9/2006 3:34 pm:
awesome for you! I'm the same way. with the exception of this post, I do not bring myself to lower my standards. Come back anytime to see what i mean.

Ok, what gets me is the bloggers who have a post about , oh..I don't know..Mom dying or their best friend's college date , and there is a shaved beaver shot right next to the post.

Or someone wishing that their friend's kid "feels better soon", and gives tips on how to set up a humidifier.

Laugh, I thought I'd die!

LET'S GO METS!!!

see...thats exactly what I'm talking about here! You've seen it and I've seen it. You understand the cynicism of this post. Not everyone did. Thanks for stopping by.

AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/10/2006 8:38 am:
...and furthermore...just so everyone knows, I'm definately not opposed to the nude pics. Boy do I ever love 'em...its just when they're used arbitrarily to call attention to their post for unrelated matters. There is a good place and a good use for them and sometimes not. Thanks for coming back around. its been awhile.

I totally agree. And those peeps know who they are..you post on their blog because one feels sorry for them. Then they thank you but when they get lots of responses, they kinda forget you, and stay with the top bloggers only. Sad lot indeed. I'm thinking of shutting down my blog...it is not interesting anymore to do so.

AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/11/2006 10:46 pm:
many very good writers end up leaving. They just can't compete with the midless dribble and the popular clicks. If you do leave may you seek happiness and productivity on the outside. I know I long for the day where I can move on to something better and not look back. Thanks for stopping by.

My dribble is filled with mindless posts Ok shoot me


AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/12/2006 7:28 pm:
I wouldn't know. In spite of your compelling photo, I have not yet ventured out to your blog to check it out. Does that make me crazy not to have checked you out yet? Some may think so.

Just my mindless dribble here, I respond to every single one of my comments, b/c I feel is someone takes the time to make a comment on either my mindles dribble or some of the stuff I work long and hard on then they deserve a response. And I don't think I have ever posted nudity on my blog.


AtomicArtist0 replies on 6/12/2006 7:35 pm:
you're a good man, cru. I too respond to all my coments as I feel that if they took the time to let me know how I'd doing, then I should do the same. This post marks the first and only time so far that i've posted a nude pic...and sadly, its not even of me...sigh. and they say all men are created equal.

guess it does make you wonder about blog pictures... I try and have something relevant to the article/story/joke but it's not always possible... so no picture works for me... as for mindless drivel... enough said...


AtomicArtist0 replies on 7/15/2006 9:29 am:
glad you found this post. It really showcases my odd humor and what I think. Sometimes no picture is good. Words say it all.
