there’s only one word difference in new wave and new age

In the past couple months my priorities have been getting a bit more in line with reality.

For example, I'm actually living a life rather than obsessing about this website. I still enjoy reading here, and occasionally writing, but there might be stretches of whole days where I just don't bother checking stats to see who’s stopping by. Now, that is a huge change for me, considering at my worst I'd checked stats every hour or so. Another example of the change is that the annual Bloggy awards came and went this year without it ever occurring to me that I should nominate Bad Samaritan (or guilt other people into doing it for me).

Yet, every once in a while something will happen that will still wow me and make me take notice of things. Bad Samaritan, and specifically my do you take too many online quizzes quiz, were mentioned on the Maxim website (look on the bottom right of the page, under "Stupid Link"). It hasn't quite been the deluge of traffic I'd have wished for, but that is still pretty damn neat. If anyone gets the print mag, please let me know if the link shows up in there.

Maybe this will inspire me to finish the other quiz I had once thought about working on: “Should I put a gun in my mouth and paint the ceiling red?”

In the 3+ years I've run this site I've been mentioned in a men's magazine, been interviewed for an AP article, got incorporated in an elementary school lesson plan, and inspired an entire university to threaten my life. What next?!

PS: How have we all forgot to wish (m)Anna a happy birthday (late)?

Thanks. Damn, we're all Andy Warhol famous. Chuck's in the local paper, MG in Maxim. Wow.

Mentioning those awards reminded me of Antwon, who once used the phrase "That's our story and we're sticking to it" in connection with that. I love that line.

"got incorporated in an elementary school lesson plan"

You did what?

Oh yes, and happy birthday to Anna. And to Eviltom too, if he's out there.

High school (9th grade) lesson plan! I'd be a pretty cruel teacher to make ten year olds read Locke & Rousseau, let alone BS!!!

My new Maxim came yesterday. I'll check it for you tonight. That's some pretty cool digs MG.

Amy likes the pictures too. I am a lucky man. Their "found porn" feature is not to be missed. Damn funny stuff.
