well, now you've heard from the experts about posting vidoes... your public has demanded it, and now a bona-fide critic has.. as far as the graphics and such-- who the eff cares? aren't we all just really looking for something interesting to read and converse about?

Riverbottom Nightmare Band

Weird and boring....those two words don't even go together.

melanie

also, i just read the other comments -- what are they talking about w/ the 'celebrity gossip' rant? you don't really have celeb gossip on your site...

Riverbottom Nightmare Band

That was criticism for a different blog melanie.

melanie

oh--gotcha riverbed

Riverbottom Nightmare Band

I could do a review of that site. But I can't promise the word "snob" or the phrase "thinks their sh!t doesn't stink" wouldn't come up...

Good morning, fellow Saturday Early Commenters!

Stopping by to plant my ass on the No More Videos bandwagon and to agree with the rest of Melanie's comments-- I couldn't care less about a site's overall "look" unless it is so obnoxious that it diverts attention from the writing.

Now diverting attention from videos is another matter altogether...

melanie

leslie: agreed, and agreed.
methinks the writers of said blog would be pleased to see some anime at the top of the blog..i, however, would not.

I've said this before about the videos and I'll say it again... I cannot write five long, substantial, funny posts each week. I don't know many bloggers who do, actually. Everyone fills in for their lack of ideas with news items or those "Which color iPod are you?" quizzes or what have you.

I'm still amazed that if I posted nothing, people would be okay with it. But if I actually search out something (and I do search these videos out... I don't just grab random ones), everyone reacts like they've been violated.

lesliedotcom

It's only 'cause we luuurrrvvvveee you...

Or just appreciate a new opportunity to chat with each other via your comments space. :-)

melanie

not true-- it's not ok to not post anything. i'm just as pissed then, too.
ldc might be right-- it's a forum to chat w/ your visitors! :)

CRD

I guess I'm the only one that enjoys being violated every now and then.

Or at least understands that crazy, wacky or annoying things don't necessarily happen each and every day of your life.

But hey..the videos have a comment section too!

melanie

enjoys being violated???
who's the what now?

dvdguy

I'm glad he finally copped to it.

melanie

i'm feeling uncomfortable. i have to go take a shower

CRD

I stick up for you and this is the thanks I get.

Harumph! Harumph I say!!

Fine, "boooo" to videos!

good'n'plenty

you've been reviewed here too, check it out!

dvdguy

Now that's a much better review, not just because it's positive, but because it seems some time was put into it.

anonymousfriend

Eh...they probably can't afford therapy, so they created that site to work out their own feelings of inadequacy. What I can't fathom is why you would knowingly/willingly put yourself in the running for that type of criticism. I mean, if you know from the get-go that all they do is tear people apart under the guise of criticism, then why would you submit your blog and then argue with their assessment?

And no, I am not picking at you. It's a question.

dvdguy

Why did I do it? Simple... more traffic.

anonymousfriend

Soooo...you're a traffic whore AND an a-hole.

dvdguy

And proud of them both.

Random Girl

i loved Grandma's boy. it was hilarious!
