another shameless plug
Posted by thatmikeykid 10 years ago
I liked Mini Fuzzytopia so much that I jumped on the bandwagon.  
 
Help out mikeytopia as well, if you like.  
 
Thanks!

I'm going to be published?
Posted by thatmikeykid 11 years ago
I don't recall who posted the link.. I think was in a journal.. to Smith Magazine's "six word essay contest"... but check out this email I just got:  
 
Dear Six-Word Memoirist,  
 
If you're getting this email, it means that your six-word memoir was hand-selected by the editors of SMITH Magazine as one of our very favorites. And while it's true that the iPod's already been awarded, there's a pretty awesome honorable mention situation we hope you'll be as excited about as we are.  
 
We got a book deal! And you know what, so did you! In 2008, HarperCollins will publish NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING: And Other Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. I'm writing to about 400 memoirists out of over 5,000 who submitted in hopes of including you guys in our book.  
 
And in the user-generated spirit of SMITH, we're illustrating the book by asking each of you to supply a photo of yourself, a photo you've taken, a doodle or drawing or collage or graphic or any other visual you feel represents your life story. The only rule is that it can't be someone else's copyright.  
 
In return, you'll get a copy of the book when it's all done, and the right to throw about the term "published author," if you don't already. Please write back right away and let me know if you're on board, or if you have any questions. We only have a few weeks to get the finished manuscript turned in, and we'd love to include you!  
 
Thanks,  
Rachel Fershleiser

heh! I don't even remember what I wrote.
Happy Holidays to all of my Linkbuddies

Thank you to all of my friends here at linkfilter.  
 
My life has been forever changed by the people here, and I'm sure that it will continue to as we move into the future.  
 
I can be overly sentimental sometimes, so I'm not going to write much more, to ensure that I don't say something silly... but all of you should know by now that I as a person and we as a family really appriciate what linkfilter is and what it has done for us.  
 
 
So there it is. Thanks. :)

tomorrow gets closer, a purple bulldozer  
is calling you on the phone.  
 
your lovelife preceeds you, your son in law feeds you  
injections of cortizone.

AB's new(er) LF Toolbar
Posted by thatmikeykid 11 years ago
Hey guys, AB has passed 'ownership' of the new toolbar he created (which is pretty darn sweet) over to me.  
 
I don't know I thing about programming these things, so aside from getting it hosted somewhere to download, I'm going to need someone or some people to maintain it.  
 
I'm in the process of making it public now. Anyone who'd like to help with this or with changes to it, please let me know.  
 
Thanks!
In which Mikey smites the company IT guy (yeah yeah I stole the format)
Posted by thatmikeykid 11 years ago
So. I come into work today. And for whatever reason, our IT guy has decided to completely destroy my profile on the computer.  
 
Why, you ask? Noone knows. New, required, flashy software? Not that I can see.  
 
Re-imaging the machine due to new corporate confguration? No.  
 
I have lost three year's worth of bookmarks, configurations, and whatever else I have yet to discover missing that I use every day.  
 
I have not been this angry in a really long time.  
 
We have all known he was an idiot from the start. His wife is the secretary to the CEO, wonder how he got the job? He barely speaks or understands english. It takes him three months to make a small system configuration change.  
 
I haven't felt like stabbing someone in the eye with a rusty screwdriver before. I guess this is what it feels like.  
 
IT guy, I now have it out for you.
What song best describes you?
Posted by thatmikeykid 11 years ago
I was just thinking about this, since I was plugging people's names into lyrics in the chatter...  
 
So.. What song best describes you?

it's really true that you don't know what you have until it's gone.  
 
let's try to keep this place here, okay?

figured this would be a better place
Posted by thatmikeykid 11 years ago
Old Yourfriend was trollin' around  
Linkfilter City like a big fark-ground  
when suddenly Deathburger burst from the chatter  
and hit Yourfriend with a comment spatter  
Yourfriend got pissed and turned real blue  
but didn't expect to get a saving roll from Hugh2d2  
who proceeded to open up his Dungeon Master's Guide  
when AB came out and stuck a tv-card in his side  
 
and he started beating up Mac123  
then they both got flattened by the a drunk Couchy  
but before they could do a New Comment Scan  
Lagbnaft rose up and lifted his hand  
and took a Bible out from under his hat  
and witnessed to Mikey (he was so proud of that)  
but he ran out of breath and he ran away  
because Substandard came to save the day  
 
this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Linkfilter Destiny  
good guys, bad guys, and spammers as far as the broswer can see  
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be  
this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Linkfilter Destiny  
 
Yourfriend took a bite out of Kassi42  
like Crataegus visiting Phil Donahue  
and then Glitch came back covered in p-p-udding  
but Shigpit jumped out and started to sing  
and MisyCarrot was injured, and trying to get steady  
when Deathburger came back, totally ready  
but suddenly his installation of Ubuntu crashed  
and while distracted he was kicked in the ass  
 
then he saw Yourfriend sneaking up from behind  
and he reached for his Otter which he just couldn't find  
'cause Thatmikeykid stole it and he made it his wife  
and Sandwoman13 was all full of strife  
then he jumped in the air and grabbed an Onley  
while Humandoing tried to get free  
from LowFlyingMule, but they posted the same link  
then they both got hit by a Potatono's kitchen sink  
 
this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Linkfilter Destiny  
good guys, bad guys, and spammers as far as the broswer can see  
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be  
this is the Ultimate Showdown...  
 
Champthom called out to his friend Metreiya  
down from the heavens descended Che Guevara  
who delivered a speech which brought us all to our knees  
and Schazzy was scratching, like he had fleas  
he then fell over on to the ground  
as Princess created works of art by the pound  
but Homepipe2 saw through his ink and pen guise  
and he snapped off his horn, which made him cross his eyes  
 
then Psycomike and lola_the_ice and  
"Monty Python and the Holy Grail"'s Black Knight and  
Linusmines and Leymaninnie and  
Cowboy Curtis and Jambi the Genie  
Beaglebot, rhe Adminotaur, Fuzzy Dave, and Horpy Spoondigger  
Lo Pan, Superman, every single boat rigger  
ampersand2001 and hammer of truth,  
Spock, The Rock, Doc Ock, and Scott Bluth  
all came out of no where lightning fast  
and they kicked Yourfriend in his fat troll ass  
it was the bloodiest battle the filter ever saw  
with lurkers looking on in total awe  
 
and the fight raged on for a century  
many reposts were claimed, but eventually  
the champion stood, the rest saw their better:  
BadBunny in a bloodstained sweater (and shades)  
 
this is the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Linkfilter Destiny  
good guys, bad guys, and spammers as far as the broswer can see  
and only one will survive, I wonder who it will be  
this is the Ultimate Showdown...  
this is the Ultimate Showdown...  
this is the Ultimate Showdown...  
this is the Ultimate Showdown...

We're gonna need a Montage....
Posted by thatmikeykid 11 years ago
Listen. (RA format)  
 
The day is approaching to give it your best  
You've got to reach your prime!  
That's when you need to put yourself to the test  
And show us the passage of time  
We're gonna need a montage (Montage)  
A sports-training montage (Montage)  
And just show a lot of things happenin' at once.  
Remind everyone of what's goin' on. (What's goin' on?)  
And with every shot, show a little improvement  
To show it won't take too long  
That's called a montage (Montage)  
Even Rocky had a montage (Montage)  
 
In any sport, if you want to go  
From just a beginner to a pro  
You'll need a montage (Montage)  
a simple little montage (Montage)  
 
Always fade out (Montage) into a montage (Montage)  
If you fade out it seems like a long time (Montage) has passed in a montage (Montage)

Adam Green - Carolina
Posted by thatmikeykid 11 years ago
Listen to it.  
 
Carolina, she's from Texas  
Red bricks drop from her vagina  
Oh, her lips taste just like sunk ships  
But her breasts taste just like breakfast  
There's her hand now on the cock sock  
Filled with white tears from the thrift store  
She's an eyesore in her red dress  
I'm the ghost of her deceased when she said  
 
Give us back our lives  
Leave him, Carolina  
Everything's just fine  
Refill my prescription  
Until next time  
I get so lost inside the rooms inside my mind  
 
California presidente  
Cogi mucho estoy cansado  
Dostoevsky, Fab Moretti  
Antiseptic, complimentary  
There's her hand now on the cock sock  
Filled with white tears from the thrift store  
She's an eyesore in her red dress  
I'm the ghost of her deceased when she said  
 
Give us back our lives  
Leave him, Carolina  
Everything's just fine  
Refill my prescription  
Until next time  
I get so lost inside the rooms inside my mind  
 
Goodnight Sweetheart  
Flying high on birth control  
She knows the pregnancy will show  
That she smells nice when you look twice  
Who's your boyfriend, Carolina?  
And it's goodnight sweetheart  
Flying high on birth control  
She knows rejections in her bones  
 
Carolina, she's from Texas  
Red bricks drop from her vagina  
Carolina  
Carolina  
Carolina
I'm Awe Inspiring!
