Zounds!

OK, according to my SiteMeter, something here got linked at Fark.com; problem is, following the referrals, it apparently comes from a section of Fark that is for paying subscribers only, and I'm not. So, could someone drop a comment here to tell me what the deal is? I love traffic, but I love even more knowing why it's coming!

(I hope it's not someone laughing at my stupidity...I hate it when that happens....)

UPDATE: Well, according to what someone has helpfully posted in comments, I'm getting roasted over there for some reason. I wonder what the original catalyst was? Somebody sure hated something I wrote here! Anyhow, welcome aboard, FARKers who think I'm fat and fashion-challenged (guilty on both counts) and that I haven't left the basement (sorry, upstairs apartment, gainfully employed, married, child, et cetera). Feel free to look around the archives; having been blogging for five years, I hope it's not all crap. But you never know! At least it's free, right?

Somebody submitted it under the headline: "Do I really envy this guy's life, or does it make me want to shudder? I can't decide." Haven't read your blog so I have no idea what he's talking about. Comments on the submission follow (in reverse order):

Oh man, so which is classier: the overalls with the tie-dyed shirt or the overalls with the denim shirt? It's a tough call.

You? You should be jealous of him.

The rest of us are just lucky we're not you or him.

I can't read that crap, it hurts my rods n cones.

He's married.

I started reading his posts, and all I got from it was:
"Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blahdy blah-blah"

FarkinHostile: Did you see his picture?

It's crying for text to be photoshopped on it.

FarkinHostile: Did you see his picture?

Presumably the only time he's been out of the basement.

The site looks like it was made in the 90s. When I saw the guys hair I wanted to shudder.

2007-03-19 06:03:47 PM FarkinHostile [TotalFark]

Did you see his picture?

Shudder. For the hair alone, Shudder.

So you can't figure out your own feelings but we should be able to? Or are you just trying to get hits on your blog?

As Silvio would say on the Sopranos, "HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHH!"

Kelly Sedinger said...

Hmmmm. Well, thanks for clearing that up, I guess! Is that first commenter accusing me of trolling for hits? Didn't get that...I rarely visit Fark in the first place. And I don't get the "He can't afford five bucks" thing -- five bucks for what? Is that what a subscription to TotalFark costs? If so, not that I can't afford it, but that I don't choose to spend five bucks thusly. (I didn't even know TotalFark existed until I got linked.)

Oh well, that's still a lot of hits coming though, so hopefully there's someone from Fark who doesn't think I suck!

I suspect that the kinds of people who'd lurk on fark making rude comments about how random people look bear very little resemblance to Brad Pitt, so I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

Besides, don't they know you might come after them with an axe or a chainsaw?

All Things Jennifer said...

Oooh I especially like the handle "FarkinHostile"

Who needs to get a life? And why would you want to pay $5 for a message board of crap?

I think the blah, blah, blah part must have been words too large for "Stunn's" vocabulary.

Ah, don't feel too bad about it. The minions of Drew Curtis can be a testy bunch, and are quite quick to jump on the bandwagon making fun of anything they can. I doubt many of them have even heard of Yeats, much less Sailing to Byzantium, which is where I assume you got the name for your blog.

That being said, I can't make much of your blog either. But then again I'm a Republican, and I've been drinking.

Call me Paul said...

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Did you see the whole "streetlight" fiasco that came out of there a couple of weeks ago? It was linked pretty widely. Some people seemed to pee themselves laughing over that thread, but I didn't see any humour in it at all.

Those who laugh loudest at others are the most uncomfortable with themselves.

Who needs those FarkinIdiots anyways?! They've probably never strayed much from the beaten path of mediocrity...keep on keeping on!

Hi, Farkinhostile from Fark here.

Dude, don't take it personally. If you think what we said was bad, it was nothing. I personally have been called much, much worse. Snark is something we do to pass the time. I like that you admit your minor, silly faults, with no angry venom, that is a good thing. Shows strength of character.

So, happy to hear you have a fulfilling life. Keep it up.
