Biggest

Posted on Thursday, December 30th, 2004

Dave!As an "end-of-year" wrap up, I thought I'd expand upon the "End of Year Quiz" I took just a few days ago...

Biggest annoyance. Other than crappy lip-syncing music acts topping the charts and an over-abundance of stupid reality shows on television, I'd have to say my deaf neighbors. The apartment complex I live in is rented almost entirely to elderly people, most of which have horrible hearing problems. Rather than getting hearing aids, they would instead prefer to scream at each other at all hours, slam every door every time, play their televisions at full-volume, and say "WHAT WAS THAT?" over and over and over again. I moved here because I wanted peace and quite, but it ends up that these people are noisier than a 24-7 party at a frat house. Annoying doesn't even begin to cover it.

Biggest disappointment. Too many things stayed the same or got worse in 2004.

Biggest encouragement. In the past year, traffic to my blog has steadily increased. This has encouraged me to keep blogging, even when I've considered dropping it. I thought that my visitor counts were amazing at the beginning of the year, but it was nothing compared to how the year would end (in fact, it even graphs as nothing!)...

Stats 2004

Biggest shock. That would be a tie between President Bush actually winning re-election and the current crisis in Asia.

Biggest jerk. Whoever is responsible for canceling Wonderfalls at Fox Television.

Biggest bitch. With Martha in prison and Dr. Laura shoved to insignificance, I'm left choosing between f#@%ing freak Judge Judy, f#@%ing insane Anne Coulter, and - oh - wait a second... no need to go further, It's Ann Coulter alright. Somebody needs to slap that stupid bitch. Hard.

Biggest bastard. There's a number of jerks, idiots, and asshats that are in contention for this spot, and - oh - wait a second... I'm pretty sure it's got to be Ann Coulter. Somebody needs to slap that stupid bastard. Hard.

Biggest idiot. I tried to ma-- oh, who am I kidding... it's Ann Coulter again. Somebody needs to slap that stupid idiot. Hard.

Biggest fun. Finally hitting my 100th Hard Rock!

Biggest discovery. I picked up the DVD set for the first season of Roswell (which aired on WB and UPN before I had WB and UPN) simply because it was cheap. $14 for 22 hours of television? Sign me up! I had heard good buzz about it, but thought it was some kind of stupid teen angst show with lame sci-fi elements tossed in. Imagine my surprise to find that it's actually a really good series.

Biggest surprise. I managed to keep this blog going for the entire year! We'll see what 2005 will bring.

    One great find in 2004 was your blog. And if you gimme that chance, I’ll slap that bitch, bastard, idiot. ;) I’m going to RIDE MY MOTORCYCLE to a hockey game tonight. I know how to enjoy New Year’s Eve. I know, you wanna slap me. Hard.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one with “no love” for Ann Coulter. She is such a rude person. She thinks the one who can talk the most (even though she has nothing to say) wins…
    Hey stay with the blog. You are among ABC News’ People of the Year! Way to go!

  3. Dave2 says:

    Oooh… “GirlOnAGlide!” Another motorcyle blog to add to my RSS reader (we really should have our own online directory). And yes, you need to be slapped good an hard for torturing a fellow rider like that! My motorcycle has another three months in storage – sob!- so think of my pain every time you take your Electra Glide out on the road. :-)

    ABC News? Hey, no matter what you read, it wasn’t me, I didn’t do it, nobody can prove anything! Oh wait, you mean it wasn’t for stalking Elizabeth Hurley?!? Hmmm… forget I said anything! :-)

  4. Randy says:

    Don’t worry, you were not mentioned specifically…Just “The Blogger” in general. But you and your web-fans can check it out:

    And no, neither I or any family member works for ABC…
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

  5. Roswell is a great series (although it has it’s ups & downs).

    Stick with it if it gets slow it picks up again. The DVD soundtrack is different than the original shows. They couldn’t afford the licensing (they said they’d never release it for this very reason) but I’ve barely noticed the diff.

    There are good books based on the series too. But make sure you try the ones NOT by Melinda Metz, hers are the ones the series are based on (the Roswell High books) but the characters have different personalities/relationships and conflict with the TV series and make it confusing.

  6. Dave2 says:

    Loving Roswell. Brilliant television to be sure.

  7. Natalie says:

    Can you please tell me where I can find the listings of the songs that were played on the Wonderfalls series? Or can you tell me where I can find that information? On episode 13 the final song that was played is the one I would really like to know the name of.

    Regards,

    Natalie

  8. McCthulhu says:

    Ann Coulter has all the grace, wit and sophistication of a woman whose only party trick is blowing cum-bubbles.

  9. Dave2 says:

    If only she was that talented.
