How Did You Get Here? #3

Following on from previous lists here and here, another list of search terms people used to arrive here.  I’m a tiny bit intrigued at the weird and wonderful digital conduits through the internet that facilitate these random visits. Here’s the latest batch of wonderful word combinations, exactly as they were typed, in no particular order, that have been typed into a search engine which then cause an algorithm to point this way… search engines with no shit can being tased keep you awake the warden off holes be alert not alarmed fridge magnet meaning of deliberate billionares are narcissist sociopath promoted sociopathic … Continue reading How Did You Get Here? #3

Changing Direction

Taking cues from my readers and other blogs I follow and interactions on other social media things, it’s time to dedicate some effort to ‘crystallizing’ the aim, intent, and … the SOUL, I guess … of this here Shit Web-Log. It’s time to go the full retard FULL SATIRE.  I’ll probably have to look that up on urban wiktionary or something so I know what I’m supposed to be doing… Why didn’t I do this to begin with? Maybe because I was trying to be all serious, and all things to all people, and maybe I thought I couldn’t pull … Continue reading Changing Direction

Social Media Rules OK

The first rule of social media is: ‘Don’t talk about the rules of social media.’ I’ve been meaning to post something, somewhere, about the ‘rules’ (more like a common-sense philosophy) that I have developed for myself in the world of social media.  When I first started dabbling in SM, on the reviled and adored (by some) facebook platform, it was clear that the interaction framework is self-evident – people post status updates or links and it is entirely up to each user what they ‘like’, ‘share’, or comment on. Before starting to use Twitter (which initially baffled me.  It just … Continue reading Social Media Rules OK

Guest Post: “Answer the Damn Question!”: Australian Man Invents New Game Show That Saves The World

Originally posted on The Big Blog of All the Shit I Know:
Do not adjust the horizontal or the vertical. You are about to enter a realm of radical televisory entertainment presented by AsGrayAsGray. Enjoy at your own foul-smelling peril.  You’ve been slimed. Almost every time I see or hear a politician in an interview, I can be heard screaming “Answer the damn question!” Same goes for business leaders, bureaucrats, CEO’s, media ‘personalities’, company spokespersons, and all the other time-wasters and obfuscators who refuse to participate in any variety of ‘plain talking’. Seems everyone is too scared to just simply speak the truth.… Continue reading Guest Post: “Answer the Damn Question!”: Australian Man Invents New Game Show That Saves The World

Holes In My Global Reach

PREAMBLE: This is meaningless.  Hit your Back button now to avoid. So, I’ve been doing this web-log thing on WordPress for a little while (just under 2 years, in fact), and a cursory bit of analysis reveals where I’m failing in my pursuit of global domination.  There are whole chunks of the world where I have no reach.  I mean, check out all the white-space on that map above… (please ignore the oceans, which are also white – they don’t count.)  Why has no-one from Greenland visited my blog?  Why no Mongolian, Kazakhstani, or Congolese visitors? I have some work … Continue reading Holes In My Global Reach

How Did You Get Here? #2

As stated previously here, it’s always, well, ‘interesting’ to see what search terms people use to land them here at the World’s Shittiest Web-Log.  Here’s the latest batch of wonderful things, in no particular order, that have been typed into a search engine which then cause an algorithm to spit out this web address… tony abbott captain kirk monk sociopathy i hate australians isis is shit if nauru gets invaded who will come to help them australia fucking astrolia focking f 35 is crap most narcissistic billionaire how did this corruption ang fraud impact negatively in the country including tax? … Continue reading How Did You Get Here? #2

How Did You Get Here?

A scan of the search terms used on Google and other search engines that have landed people here on my Shit web-log is an interesting exercise.  I guess it says something about something.  Pretty obvious, really…  and reassuring that, even though I put zero effort into SEO, the googles still work for me… Here’s a list of some of the most used, as well as a few of the more intriguing ones: 2027 martin luther king jr ave america is fucked american fucked asylum seeker hate rant asylum seekers war casualties persuasive australian industry can get fucked       … Continue reading How Did You Get Here?

Not dead. Thinking.

No.  I am not dead.  At least not yet. I’m just thinking.  Doing a lot of thinking. There is so much Shit that needs to be stopped, and I’m supposed to be writing about it, but it’s all getting me down.  In fact, right now, there is a veritable cavalcade of Shit that I should probably be pouncing all over, in order to then complain about it in this forum right here.  But, alas, I am adrift in the sea of all the Shit, perplexed by its sheer numerousness.  I know, that is not a word. Relax, dear Reader.  I … Continue reading Not dead. Thinking.

Social Media ‘Plagiarism’ – a long and aimless rant

Sometimes I can get a little bit precious.  Like now. I’m not the most active blogger or social media user in the place, and I often wonder what some other people are doing with the rest of their lives since they appear to be on Twitter or facebook almost constantly, but I see that it is something they are committing themselves to, for better or worse, and they are sometimes able to post some great original stuff, funny stuff, of-the-moment stuff, stuff that makes me think “oh, you are quick”. On a couple of occasions I have found myself in … Continue reading Social Media ‘Plagiarism’ – a long and aimless rant

The Bleeding Obvious

My own worst enemy, when it comes to simply ‘getting on with it’. This web-log thing that you are reading right now (apologies for that), is supposed to be my avenue to get stuff out there, but I am forever stopping myself from actually doing that. The idea was to just pour words onto the screen, review, edit, refine, and press ‘Publish’. You should see the amount of draft posts that I have amassed (but I wouldn’t put you through that agony…). A growing list of unfinished, barely started, nonsensical word-globules, most with no future. I blame my brain, or … Continue reading The Bleeding Obvious
