You leave me hanging at 449? I can understand going to 450 or as far as 452 before inching back to below the milestone mark but just hanging at 449 mocks me and all I do.
I asked for your pity once. I will never do so again.
If I had any power over you, Internet (blessed be his webs and tubes) I would use it to make your life uncomfortable. But I am just a small greedy cog in an immense machine so why bless me with what is my DUE, right?
You forget Internet. I know all about you and your buddy, the computer.
I was there when you were a pathetic green screen with only OREGON TRAIL to play on it. I was there when your 'masters' chess program was so ridiculously easy to beat I often left ending the game to others because you bored me so.
I lived with dial-up and the remarkably slow speed of porn downloads in those days.
I would leave music and comics to download over the weekend and sometimes I would be rewarded come Monday morning - sometimes not.
But I survived all those 'beta' times and now have the world at my fingertips at faster than light speeds. I can create a body of work that I can be proud of. I have made many friends and extended myself and my 'brand' further than I ever thought I could.
Isn't that worth ONE MORE FUCKING FOLLOWER!!! Why can't I be in the 450 Club? I already had patches and jackets made.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
