DLD 03/28/09: Is this thing on? 98

Post author: salb918

As long as we’ve got a new blog, we might as well get the action started. Vince Shlomi, of ShamWOW! fame, has been arrested on charges of felony aggravated battery:

According to Shlomi, 44, on Feb. 7 he met a prostitute named Sasha Harris at a nightclub and pre-paid her $1,000 for “straight sex.” When they returned to his $750-a-night hotel room (those infomercials really pay well), the couple began kissing when Harris suddenly bit Shlomi’s tongue and “would not let go.”

OK, let’s get this thing going! I imagine it will take a while for us to find our rhythm, but we’re all friends here and it’s my sincere hope that any disagreement you might have with me will not worsen my incipient cannibalism.

    Someone stole this link from me that I posted last night in the AN dld. Possibly poppy, who replied earlier. Since I can no longer trust any of you, this will be my final post at freekraut.

    The nesting looks ridiculous after a point.

    I turned off the avatars; looks like that doesn’t really save any space. I’ll turn them back on for now.

    I think this current (as of 9:20 pm) template (“Contempt” … any Godard fans in the house? Where is xbx?) strikes the best balance between clean fp layout, customizable header, automated authorship posting, and readable/flexible nesting. Plus, the template simply doesn’t accept avatars. I vote for sticking with this one for a while.

    This community just isn’t what it used to be. This morning, there were constructive and insightful conversations. Now, it’s just a bunch of n00bs, idiots, and 12-year-olds. {Sigh}

    (You guys let me know if you need any technical assistance. First complaint: Nobody has an 800 pixel monitor anymore!)

    I just wanted to say that I’m above all this partisan bickering.

    Hunh. WP’s threading technology is … questionable.

    Am I here?

    WP kinda sucks. We could all invade AthleticsClubhouse.com (I’m an admin there)

    Tigers place Dontrelle Willis on the DL with an anxiety disorder.

    Willis said the diagnosis came after follow-up blood tests showed something of concern. Doctors told him that the condition is treatable and that they’ll start him on a regimen.

    “This is not depression,” Willis said. “This is something totally different. This is something where they saw something in my blood that they didn’t like. “I’m not crazy, though my teammates might think that I’m crazy.”

    Is this for real, a la Grienke? Or is this a novel cover for acute suckitis?

    So, in the event that sal linked to … what i want to know is this: did she demand “Shlomi the money!”?

  15. xbhaskarx Mar 29,2009 3:35 pm

  16. xbhaskarx Mar 29,2009 3:36 pm

    How come I can’t post new comments here?

    Hi all, I’m using my FARK.com name since doctorK was already taken (bastard).

    Here’s some linkage:

    Vasetomies are surging in popularity due to the poor economy. All I can say is, “Operation, operation, snip and tie, snip and tie”.

    Okay, THIS comment will appear at the bottom of the page, hopefully.

    Hello 2009. You don’t know me yet as I’ve just started posting on another A’s related site but I wanted to warn you about something. On January 20, 2017 Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States…I know what you’re thinking, how can that be and do we have flying cars in 2017? Now, I know you just got President Obama into office and you’re likely still filled with hope. The good news is he does a good job and he’s a successful President. The bad news is the country in many places is still racist, sexist, and locked in the past so the next guy we put in the Oval Office is a morbidly obese bigoted moron with a bird’s nest on his head. I wish I could tell you this was a joke and in a few years when I come to http://www.freekraut.net…yes, I know it’s still http://www.freekraut.com right now but someone got pissed about something so we moved…you’ll find out that most of my posts are pretty silly but this post…this post is a warning. Starting in 2017 things are going to get really bad…oh, and the A’s really suck. Well, okay…good luck and all that.

    Future Bed

    But seriously, folks...

      This a good warning.

      Also the site turns out great but it will frequently be “stopped” because it’s so…popular…yeah, that’s the ticket.

      • nevermoor nevermoor Jun 2,2017 2:16 pm || Up

        Yeah, I’m very open to suggestions on new hosts. Otherwise I need to keep improving the coding and/or bump up to $25/month (and pass the hat around again).

          Who are you using now

          And I have to say: mikev is one of my favorite people on here -slusser.

          Thanks, and go As.

            GearHost. Which was great when we switched to it but now seems to not give us the resources we need (at least with my inefficient code)
