…oing-oing-oing…

Remember how the richly demented Foghorn Leghorn used torment that stupid dog in such a pleasing variety of ways? He’d paddle the dog’s ass with a paddle. He’d hammer him with pies to the face. The dumbass mutt would get so frustrated, he’d run out the end of its leash time and time again. Good times, those larynx busting yanks back to reality. Good times.

You get a sense of such blood boiling frustration when you check out our old neighborhood. I think most of you by now have wandered in to the SJ blogs to witness more seething attempts to control the tempo. I’ve been by myself, because it still amuses me to no end to see the leash pulled taut and then hear that boing-oing-oing-oing of infuriation. You can see the vein rising in the administrator’s temple. You can see the jaw muscles clenching as more efforts are exerted to keep unruly mobs on topics.

I think it’s ironic that we’ve had no real bickering over here since we discovered there is no one to censor us. The misbehaving child will eventually stop screaming if no adults step in to scold him. It’s probably deep in a psychological way. And while there is something to be lamented about the lack of true whining around here, at least there is also no shadow of removal for any of us, no matter how bad our behavior.

And so in the spirit of Foghorn Leghorn, I’ve taken to collecting spleeny pleas and admonishments from our old alma mater. And bear in mind that I like most of the people over there quite a lot. And not just because they amuse me.

I sure wish somebody would post some useful information on where to find the location of our mystery photo so more people could enter our contest. That IS the intent of this particular blog. I was hoping this would not turn into another outlet for people looking for a place to bitch and moan. We can’t please everyone all the time.

Unless you want to see this blog, and every other blog here disappear from this site…please try to respect fellow bloggers. No name calling.

Bickering between yourselves just doesn’t do much other than show how childish supposed adults can be.

And people, please try to stick to the topics. I’ve received so many emails about this constant bickering on the blogs that we are real close to shutting it down. We want a forum where people can freely exchange ideas and opinions, not insults.

Hee hee. Boing-oing-oing-oing. Free drinks for anyone who can fool He Who Will Not Be Named into stopping by.

    Well, sheesh Marky Mark. I don’t give a whizz if they get off topic. I just don’t want some dipshit who’s been blocked twice to get my blog shut down. I’m just tryin’ keep the peace, like any other hippy’s offspring would. 🙂

  2. Linda said,

    Hi Christine — sure we all saw you tryin’ to keep the peace with threats of physical violence. That’ll bring them on in droves, I’d think. 🙂

    Keep up the good work over there, if they let you. And it’s nice to see you over here too.

  3. Linda said,

    And by the way, HHWNBN, are you scared to blog with us? We’re wa-a-ait-ing.

    You know, Christine is at least posting new stuff on her blog, unlike Nick. She is trying and on her first blog, Dan was an asshat to her, right off the bat. That fat bastard just sits on his fat ass all day throwing insults while he waits for his state check to come in so he can bum a ride to Hannaford for more donuts. Piece of shit. I wish I worked for the phone company or adelphia. I would disconnect that useless bastards internet connection. He probably sits around all day looking a child pornography, whacking off with one hand and stuffing his face with the other. Gross bastard should replace the donut in his hand with a bar of soap. I wish the spineless bastard would come over here, but he is spineless and unless he can try to censor what other people are saying, he will stay away. No suggest removal buttons over here.

    And Eric, well, he outright lied on his post, saying that no one was complaining about “this unknown blogger.” He is full of shit. I haven’t been posting, but I have been reading and whenever Dan posted something mean and hateful, I would suggest removal and remind Eric of the new policy. Seems the new “kinder and gentler” policy only applies to former Lost Sole bloggers. Eric, if you are listening, bite me ! You suck as an administrator and are too stubborn to accept any help, another thing I offered before Street Talk was pulled. You are obviously an egomaniac who thinks you are overworked and overstressed. You can stop your whining about not being able to monitor it all, I am surprised if you don’t need help monitoring wiping your own ass.

    Once StreetTalk was taken off the SJ website, I left. I had no reason to go over there and no desire to read HWWNBN useless and degrading comments. I have no time to waste on that piece of useless blob of flesh. I believe his problem is the fact that he can’t stand himself and he reflects the image of himself onto others, thus thinking that THEY are a piece of useless blob of flesh and not him.

    As for the rest of us Lost Soles – I am PROUD to be part of this blog. And if asshat EVER finds this place…. man, my blood pressure is rising just THINKING about what I’d like to say/do to him!

  6. K2 said,

    I actually understand where Christine’s be-nice-you-assholes blog is coming from. Fact is, the SJ wants it both ways: they want blogs, ’cause they’re all the rage, but they want Utopian blogs, which, this just in, don’t exist. Especially political blogs, which I’ve pretty much begrudgingly bailed on.

    Maybe LaFlamme (great column today, by the way) can set me straight, but to me, it seems like the conservative ownership of the SJ is the one thinking the blogs will help their bottom line, so Eric is their point man. I dunno, I just don’t think Eric is out to get anybody. I just think he’s in a tough spot — he just can’t win. If it’s a free-for-all, the Costellos panties get bunched up, and Eric’s the one who has to hear their shit.

    I already preached my let’s-not-get-too-ugly angle many, many moons ago. I also changed my approach to the blogs, and it’s paid off. I’ve only received three death threats from Weasel in the last few months, where as before, I could actually see the laser pointer from his assault rifle on my heart. Thank goodness the man drinks too much coffee and can’t keep steady aim.

  7. Linda said,

    Oh yes, Slick, I totally agree with K2 about today’s column. It’s always a good laugh when you tell us about your mail.

  8. AO said,

    HWWNBN is too chicken to post in here. He’s reading this blog everyday, that’s for sure but, he doesn’t have the balls to post.

  9. jarheaddoc said,

    What the heck is HWWNBN?

  10. AO said,

    He Who Will Not Be Named. It’s Dan. I think it was Fred who gave him that nickname back in the old blog.

  11. jarheaddoc said,

    Sorry, I guess I should have paid more attention to the last sentence of the blog! I just got back from the lake, from FINALLY getting up the courage to put the damn outboard motor in the water, so I’m a little clusterfucked today. Well, a lot CF’d, actually.

    Dan does not have the courage to take us on. Dan is a chicken turd. I could go on and on…… but I won’t….

  12. Daniel said,

    Apparently I’m not the only Daniel. At least, I hope not from what I hear.

    As for staying on topic? Topics are for those who haven’t had their attention span destroyed by years of television, movies, and video games.

  13. Linda said,

    Daniel! No, of course, not you, you are welcome here any time. Nice to see you. Been away gaming, right?

    jd, so? did it go? the motor?

  14. LaFlamme said,

    There his is! Daniel! Get him!

  15. Linda said,

    Leave Daniel alone, you bully. I suspect he’s been at Gen Con, is that right Daniel? and he probably can’t see straight yet. Let him rest up and he can probably take you any time, Slick.

  16. LaFlamme said,

    Great. I’ve got yet another nickname. I was just getting adjusted to Flamer.

  17. AO said,

    I think Flamer suits you perfectly. Especially while you’re sipping on a Cosmo.

  18. LaFlamme said,

    You big thilly.

  19. Linda said,

    AO, he practically gave himself the Slick moniker. Nobody MADE him put it in the paper.

  20. jarheaddoc said,

    Can we someone how work Ace into mark’s complete nickname? And Beatrice, too.

  21. Linda said,

    He’ll be like a prince of the royal family — 18 names long.

  22. K2 said,

    I think Cum Jockey and Pillow Biter are already taken. Damn.

  23. AO said,

    Who they taken by, K2? You? 🙂

  24. Bobbie said,

    AO,
    It wasn’t Fred that gave The Fat Bastard the name of HWWNBN because I did. I was looking for a good name for him late one night after he made one too many shitty remarks on the old blog. Figured that name would work because both characters are vile, evil and full of hot air. See what an overtired mind, too much Mountain Dew and too many vics will come up with?

  25. K2 said,

    No, I’m Batch Master K.

  26. AO said,

    Bitch Maste K? What does that mean?

  27. Linda said,

    OK guys what language should we speak in tonight? 🙂

  28. AO said,

    English is the only language I understand. Again, a problem with my keyboard. I meant to say bitch MASTER. Sheesh.

  29. AO said,

    Then, again, the problem could be my eye. Stye’s suck!

  30. Linda said,

    I’m at home tonight (sounds vaguely Edwardian) but when I’m at my mother’s, I have to suffer with the keyboard from hell. One of these days I’ll buy her a new one since about a third of the keys just don’t go. So I sympathize with keyboard trouble AO

  31. jarheaddoc said,

    It’s called a hordeolum, AO. sounds really, really nasty, but it’s a proper medical term.

  32. AO said,

    No problem with my keyboard, Linda. It’s just my fingers! Or, too much box wine!! LOL!

  33. Linda said,

    Ha !! box of wine, bag of beer. Where’s Gil when you need a haiku?

  34. AO said,

    Ha. I don’t know! Gil, where are you?? But, seriously, no boxed wine for me.A night with MT and Flammer was more than enough for me. And, I only drank two beers outta my “bag o’ beer”.

  35. Sulu said,

    I’m new in town, where’s the gay bar?

  36. AO said,

    I don’t know. Ask Flamer.

  37. Herb said,

    Fastbreaks. Just ask K2.

  38. "The Weasel" said,

    SCRAMBLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. AO said,

    Someday Weasel, you’ll have to clue me in on that one.

  40. Linda said,

    It’s really tame on our corner of the internet, especially for a night with a full moon.

  41. Linda said,

    The main thing that’s pissing me off today is the fact that Exxon Mobil made fucking $10.4 billion fucking dollars last quarter. I know it’s a bit abstract, but it just — you know, just sucks.

  42. Sulu said,

    My gay-dar still works, found it and took a quick look around.
    It is a quiet night, for a full moon. Maybe this weekend will be better?
