The other day, I'm going through my Site Tracker and I find a link that leads me to this:
Linked Due to the Size of the Image
Uh, #1, I did visit from a referring link. Why on earth would I be typing URLs to a site I've never heard of before in my address bar? What, do you think people just do this randomly in hopes of finding something interesting? If I did, I get the feeling 3/4 times I'd end up at a porn site.
#2, why would you CARE if I found it by typing in the URL? Call me a cranky old cantankerous barracuda, but I really don't like being told how to surf the internet, thank you very much.
If this was all I had to report, this would be a very lame Site Tracking Adventure. So that's why that's not the end of it. Not at all indeed. Yesterday, I found this link in my referral reports:
Site Tracking Adventure #6, September 21, 2008
Kotaku once said that my site was pointless. If they saw that site, their heads would explode. Seriously. I couldn't make heads or tails of that site, and that page I linked is only the beginning.
#1. I can handle someone thinking my opinions on the NES game Athena are "foolish", but I'm especially happy that a picture of the game's boxart, a video of someone beating the first three levels, some unintelligible font, and a link to an article about ships being hijacked off Somalia explain exactly why they're foolish. Otherwise, I may have been in the dark for who knows how many years to come.
#2. Quote, "haha!! foolish mortal perceptions and opinions... ...but she's still a god". Okay. Who's still a god? Athena? Or me? Did I just get accused of being a west African pirate? And why would that make me a god? Well, I guess it would make sense... I mean, only a god would have the power to attack a ship halfway around the world from the confines of an Ohio apartment building.
#3. The rest of that site - Seriously, WTF?? No, really, what the hell?? It's gotta be one of those viral advertisement sites like those Levi's jeans ones from a few years back. That's the only thing that makes sense. Or doesn't...
Comments from the RAU Gallery:
|Nucleo: Well, I don't know if that site makes any less sense than things do around here on a daily basis, but I digress.|
|Lizaki: Oh, I see you guys discovered the results of my last experiment...
|Nucleo: Is that what that is? What kind of experiment were you administrating?|
|Lizaki: I hooked the spaghetti strainers up to a volunteer's head and they generated a website based on his deepest thoughts.
|Nucleo: Lemme guess... Christopher Paladin?|
|Lizaki: No, mine. Though I was watching the movie Congo while playing the video game based on it at the same time, so maybe that had some minor influence on the results.
|Christopher: Did someone say my name?
|Lizaki: Yeah, wanna help contribute to science, young man?|
|Lizaki: Geez, man, c'mon! Does it really take that long to decide? Yes or no?|
|Christopher: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were talking to me. I sometimes forget I'm a man. LOL.|
|Lizaki: Shit. Okay, here goes. Just put this on your head...|
|Nucleo: This should be interesting...|
|Lizaki: In a few moments the deepest, the most intricate thoughts of Christopher Paladin will be known to all!|
|Nucleo: ...What the... bloody hell is that?|
|Lizaki: Fuck if I know.|
|Robin: Allright, everyone! You know what time it is, right?|
|Lizaki: The moment everyone actually puts up with the rest of this piffle to see?|
|Robin: Yup. The little magic hat has drawn the name of a cool cat with a dry sense of humor that you may or may not get.|
|Christopher: You got Magic Dick from the J. Geils Band?!|
|Robin: Nope. Better than that. You know him from his cameo appearance in the Honen's Vacation sketch. Roll it, Gordon!|
