Color Me Bad


The Reviews Are In . . .

Some of my biggest fans are spam. These trolling algorithmically generated comments really know how to make a man feel good. It’s indecipherable flattery like the following that gives me the strength and inspiration to daily press on.

You know thus considerably relating to this subject, made me in my opinion consider it from a lot of varied angles. It’s like men and women are not involved until it is one thing to do with Girl Gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. At all times maintain it up!

– Touch Phone

That was really sweet. And, well said, I might add. Consider it maintained up, Touch Phone.

Getting people out of their comfort zone:

Normally I don’t read post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, very nice post.

– Hier Klicken

Still huge with Third Reich stenographers, apparently. This comment has been amazed me, too.

Appealing to mens’ interests:

You made some clear points there. I did a search on the subject and found most guys will go along with with your blog.

– SEO Software

You know you’re made when there exists polling data on your popularity among various demographics that even a software can locate. Wait. Why only most guys?

For some, I’m persistence paid off:

I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

– Beginners Guide to Forex Training

Manuals love me. They tend to know exactly what’s worth enough for them. And what’s not. They also remember what the internet was like than ever before.

For others, I’m a role model and resource:

I noticed you are tend to be frankly serious about this specific! We are wishing to generate our web site and you own helped me which includes fantastic facts.

– Official Jordy Nelson Jersey

I can’t believe the jersey of one of the guys on my fantasy football team is a regular here. Not to mention, a burgeoning web developer, apparently. (Nice work, jersey of Jordy Nelson!.)

This comment apparently spent years in R&D before submission. Plainly, the engineering paid off:

I actually wanted to develop a small note so as to appreciate you for these magnificent advice you are sharing at this website. My extensive internet search has finally been compensated with good quality concept to talk about with my contacts. I’d assume that we site visitors actually are very lucky to exist in a fantastic website with very many marvellous individuals with valuable tricks. I feel somewhat fortunate to have used your webpages and look forward to so many more brilliant times reading here. Thank you once more for a lot of things.

– Joline Silveria

Wait, I think that was just a neighbor. Regardless, it’s the highest sort of compliment to be credited with someone’s very existence inside a website and to finally be acknowledged as having valuable tricks. #Humbled.

I thought this last one was a little creepy until I saw the author. Makes total sense now, though:

Great tremendous issues here. I’m very satisfied to peer your article. Thanks a lot and i am having a look forward to touch you. Will you kindly drop me a mail?

– Fake Rolex Watches

Stop it! You make me blush. Of course, I’ll look forward to drop you a mail, you silly Fake Rolex Watches, you!


Don’t Be a Hater

Like my wife. She thought this was insignificant. My Tim Tebow song on the front page of the Houston Chronicle?? (It will be gone before you read this.) That’s big willie. The full article is here. That means I’m probably huge with Brian Cushing and the janitorial staff at the Houston Galleria food court. I was finally able to post a screen shot below. WordPress’ latest software update is apparently “updated” in such a way as to not allow me to easily upload any media. That’s pretty useful. So much for my ode to Kim Jong Il, which I recorded today. My kids have been humming it all afternoon. Pretty catchy.

Well, at least they labeled me a “Christian rapper” as soon as humanly possible to ensure readers would be able to formulate as many preconceived notions before not depressing the link. I also appreciate the implication that I’m Delilah-Late-Night-Dedications serenading the Denver QB, to whom I’ve “dedicated” the song. Wait, I should be grateful. No, I shouldn’t. Yes, I should. This just in: “Christian Rapper Argues with his Christian Id and Buddhist Super-ego Over Religious Labeling!”

Super, super thanks to Sketch the Journalist who made all of this happen and who has quietly and selflessly served rappers like myself in the press for years. (If you wrote the copy for the front page link, brother, please pretend the penultimate paragraph was a glitch in the WordPress matrix or something Plastic embedded as a prank, while I will proceed to spoon out my eye.) I can’t say thank you enough.
