Ah, My Adoring Public!

Blogging has its share of ups and downs, moments of crowning achievement followed by a sinking pit of despair.

(No, I'm not talking about my Storm Raven. I like it anyway.)

It doesn't matter! All of it is made worthwhile by you, my adoring public!

Stelek has ZombYs who faithfully post.  Fritz has a loyal readership who email him questions for consideration.  Bell of Lost Souls has a staff of dedicated authors toiling away.  Jawaballs has me.

It doesn't matter, because I have you.   I bask in the warm glow of your appreciation.

Such as this, posted just yesterday by a loving reader, taking the time out of his day to drop this gem on a past topic...

That movie was the shit!!! One of my all time favs. Don't listen to this schmegma tasting faggot. Go and buy the movie and book. Thats right....both of em because they are genious. To Brent- You are a fucking douche. Please god go jump off a building and try and land on some minorities with the same thoughts as you. Eat shit and die.

Ah, the love!  It makes it all worthwhile!

Before you go, Practical John, I wanted to point out that you misspelled genius.  Also smegma.  That's pretty hard to do with a spell-checker, don't you think?  You should always capitalize 'God' and your ellipses doesn't require a period.  You need an apostrophe for the contraction 'that is.'  The myriad other errors I'll chalk up to your unique, personal style of expression.  Thanks for stopping by!

Ha! The fact that someone freaked out over Starship Troopers enough to write that is just priceless... wow, thanks for making my day. What a time to be alive, eh?

Brent...I do adore you...

I'm watching you...even now...

Black Matt said...

what can I really say, it makes everything worth while! right?

b.smoove said...

Starship Troopers? all that was in defense of Starship Troppers?
The mind boggles.

...and to be fair, that film was absolutely dreadful.

Anonymous said...

Ah but Starship Troopers 3 kicked major Nid (?!) butt.

Oh and God is only capitalized when you are talking about the Christian God. In all other instances (unless at the head of a sentence), ala the Greek god Dionysus or the Indian god Shiva it is lower case.

Fleahost said...

He was talking about the Christian God. Nowhere in his post did he come anywhere close to a coherent thought. Everyone who has read it is now dumber. I award him no points and may God have mercy on his soul.

Herr Fernseher said...

I can see how this comment turned into a post--each time I come across it, it gets funnier. Somehow I now have it in my head that PracticalJohn has a handlebar moustache, a mullet, and would be a lot of fun to watch Starship Troopers with, provided we had copious amounts of beer, which is a given in the case of Practical John. He also seems like the kind of guy who actually would eat shit right before dying if someone asked him to, whereas most of us would probably prefer to skip straight to the death.

Thanks for the laugh, "schmegma [sic]" -breath. :D If you ever find out which minorities this guy hates, let us know; should be good for another laugh. Gotta love the haters! Otherwise the terrorist have one! I mean won!

Brent said...

The whole thing absolutely slays me, it really does. I seriously giggle like a kid every time I read it.

I agree with Mr. TV, er... Herr Fernseher - PracticalJohn would make Starship Trooper a fantastic movie experience.

He'd squeeze the shit out of that Natty Light during the communal shower scene, shooting foam straight into the air, exclaiming, "Check out them shit-eating grins! god damn!"

I'm going to get a ton of mileage off this comment, I promise you that.

Mercer said...

lol and what brought on this sugar rush fit then Brent from Practical John who lacks grammar and spelling abilities.

The_King_Elessar said...

LOL. Hate mail, and being trolled, are funny.

Mofreaka said...

While I do not agree with everything FanaticalJohn said I cant help but think that the movie itself was decent at the least. No it wasnt an award winner but a decent time killer, but then again, I liked Judge Dread and I put The Usual Suspects at the top of my movie list!

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Don't feed the trolls!

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
