Greetings and hostilities

I rarely click through other sites' blog listings, but once in awhile, on a slow afternoon when I'm antsy, I'll get on a blog I like, go down the line, and click through anything unfamiliar.

I've recently been updating our own slate of links. Here are a few introductions:
Businger's Truth to Power: Sports Edition. You recall "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" from the South Park movie. This is like that, only instead of being about the famed figure skater, it's dedicated to disgraced basketball coach Bob Knight. Here is a site filled with lies, damn lies and wholly fabricated statistics, accompanied by entertaining digressions and detours.

Drunk Brunch. She writes mostly about being drunk and/or horny. I once saw Flop give her a McDonald's cheeseburger, which prompted her, on her blog, to describe "the Cole Slaw boys" as "fun for the whole family." Fun indeed.

Cajun Boy in the City. Found via East Village Idiot, who appears to be scouting New York-centric blogs. I'm leery of "[blank] in the city" themes, but this site is well written and doesn't go for the easy shots.

Matt Sears Forever. Another one I found on East Village Idiot. Highly funny, LOL, etc.

Bee-Spot. A self-described "public school ho" in Oklahoma who likes getting drunk, eating food and gorging herself on pop culture. Rumor is that she's a reader of this site and was heartbroken that she's never been linked from here. Awwwwwww ...

Milk Was a Bad Choice. A group blog written by a collection of high-spirited young men who appear to be friends from high school. Like most high-spirited young men, they like sports, movies, music and pretty ladies all greased up. A post on this site inspired me to write a masterpiece.

All Butter is Mine
. Another goddamn Oklahoman. Throw Pissed & Petty into the mix and you start to think that Oklahoma in 2007 is to blogging what Seattle in 1990 was to guitars. Apparently, all Oklahomans love to blog. Combined with the preceding site, it's allowed me to create a dairy-themed blog collection. As Spinachdip (deceased) observed in the early days of our blog-courtship, you can never have enough blogs named after food that aren't about food. ABiM also happens to be well-written and amusing.

Copyranter. Much bigger than us. He doesn't need our links or sympathy. True, I hate all advertising, but he works in advertising and seems to hate it with more smarts and passion than I can summon.

Kissing Suzy Kolber. I showed up late to this party. It's a mega-blog about the NFL that receives thousands of links. I hate the NFL: college only. Here is a site so profane, well written and funny that its subject doesn't matter.
But it helps me segue to the next topic.

Civil War.

Brady Quinn being drafted to the NFL is no big deal for most people, but he happens to have been selected by the Cleveland Browns, which, for co-blogger Flop, is a very, very, very big deal.

In a matter of seconds, a player who we have long mocked and reviled for a team that we hate with a passion -- Flop loved him. Fuckwit hasn't even played yet, and Flop loves him.

At least it showed Flop's true colors. In a matter of weeks he'll be celebrating the president and raving about how cool American Idol is and abstaining from alcohol and doing everything else that is wrong and stupid and unholy.

Hence, my first and only foray into the dumbest internet fad ever:



I commissioned the following poll. Vote or Die, bitch.

For what it's worth, when I saw that photo ("No they be stealin mah bucket") on MGoBlog I was laughing uncontrollably. For like five minutes. And then again later when I would think of it. Funny shit.

I voted for poll choice A, even though I think B is more likely the truth. I am a long-time asshat.

in oklahoma, the internet is out only means of communicating with the outside world, hence the profusion of blogs. please help us.

also, if anyone would like to attend a wedding as bee-spot's date, please feel free to email her. she'll be running into the ex-mr. bee-spot with his trashy new 20 year old girlfriend. still being single herself, bee-spot would like a trashy new 20 year old boy on her arm to show off. must speak english and be willing to get shirtless at some point during the reception.

That sounds like Flop, except that he's 30 and has a tenuous grasp of English.

DrunkBrunch said...

Ooh, I'm touched by the shout-out - thanks! (Seriously, I'm touching myself now.)

She writes mostly about being drunk and/or horny.
Will you write my epitaph?

and you really don't want to see what's under his shirt. even if it is baby-smooth.

Flop was obviously wooed by Brady Quinn's monster pythons and dreamy looks. How do you think he won over the Irish fans?

Alex said...

apparently, my comment somehow didnt make it. anyway, thank you for the kind words. and as shain said, oklahoma is awesome. in norman you drink or smoke pot. thats about it. oh, college towns. i know, it's boring, but it's my life.

blythe said...
