Oh, I forgot… it’s all about you, isn’t it?

One of these days I am going to learn that with people in the blog world, it’s all about them. We’re all here for your amusement.

Rather than deal with guilt over something you know is hurting your friends, you’ll take the easy way out and bury them. Sell them out even though you know damn well they once went to bat for you.

When some people try to do something nice, since it didn’t apply to you… rather than do something similar (since you’ve noticed a need for a different group), it’s just easier to piss in someone’s sandbox and walk away laughing, isn’t it?

I can go on and on about the self-centered bullshit in this community that makes me sick to my stomach, but I’m aggravated enough. Oh right, let me guess what your cop-out answer is going to be… you’re only human, right?

Fuck! No wonder why I choose not to get involved with people in real life…

If the shoe fits… wear that bitch.
Excuse me while I go puke in your honor.

No soup for you!

Ok… explain this to me like I’m a six year old.

Boycott-Hollywood – A site that has been set up *specifically* to target and punish celebrities for their “anti-war” statements, has been dealt a death blow by the William Morris Agency. The site is being closed down by dotster sometime within the next few days.

Get this… Boycott-Hollywood complaining that their “freedom of speech is being infringed on”, and this is unfair.

You really have to laugh at the irony of it all.

Payback for the Warbloggers?

“Not like I don’t enjoy the occasional once-a-decade ass kicking like every other red-blooded American, but any administration that starts to make the French look like they have a point is probably irredeemably fucked up.”
– Reverend Mykeru – War Whores –

Ah yes… in the past few weeks, Reverend Mykeru has quickly risen to fame as a champion to the people who thought going to war with Iraq was probably not the brightest idea.

It takes a certain level of hypocrisy to be a warblogger. And you have to pray everyone has a short memory when it’s over. You need to put pictures of the flaming twin towers next to Saddam Hussein (not that he had anything to do with 9/11), you need to cry when people de-link you for your views… and yet ban people from your site, and support boycotts of “Un-American Celebrities” for their views later.

Not really a divorce, more like a separation

A lot of wonderful people have written me about the last post, and I thank you all.

I’ve made a decision to distance myself from the community.

I’m not going anywhere, and neither are you. Your links are simply being moved to a new section, away from anyone that can hurt my friends because of something I may say. And you certainly don’t need the pressure of “what is *that guy* doing here?” in your comments.

You can’t quit… you’re fired!

I was brought to mind a funny little story about me a few years back.

I worked for a bank in Manhattan. Part of my job was hopping across town on a train and picking up a suitcase full of cancelled checks. To make a long story short I found myself once getting off the train…

… and forgetting to take the suitcase with me. Half a million dollars worth of returned checks on its way to the Bronx. Buh-bye.

Bored Stupid

Man… if I had one of those “I’m feeling…” buttons on my site, it would probably say “cheap & used” right now.

<~~~ Cool! Thanks DIZ!

How are you supposed to feel when you make amends with someone, you write nice stuff about them, they write nice stuff about you (well, more like USE YOU as a cheap tool to keep people from dropping out their project like flies in a mass exodus…) have these hundreds of people come here overnight to read my post…

….and then they read the next one, which looks like a “pig party”, and makes them look like a REAL asshole?

Eric Brooks, as played by Judd NelsonWould YOU remove all that nice stuff that you wrote about ME, and declare it a “useless rant”?????

*sigh* THE TRUTH: It’s not for everyone, y’know.

Yes… ignore me now. I’ll go away.
*SNORT* Oh Yeah, like *THAT’S* ever worked before!

*whistles*

So, how about them Yankees?

You’re not expecting me to talk about the shit hitting the fan tonight, are you?
Hey, I just made my peace. And I gave my word I was staying out of it.


On second thought… FUCK IT! I’m hearing a lot of lies and PR damage-control at Blogshares, and I’m sick of it.
Here is a copy of the page where my friends and I are CRUCIFIED at Blogshares. (I suspected my comment was going to be deleted, so I saved the page.) Maria was run off the web, because of me. She defended a friend, and he sicced trolls on all of us.

Sayed has no control over over the trolls??? BULLSHIT!
He has my name in big-ass letters, my URL on it and singles out every one commenting on my site as “nazis” and “doting supporters”. One of them was Maria, who didn’t agree with my remark, but said my frustration with the game “echoed her sentiment too”.

The very first response was one of his asshole friends suggesting “Perhaps blogs that link to him should suffer horrendous losses too.”

HEL-LOOOOO???????

The reviews are in…

This will bring me (and by osmosis, all of us) maximum exposure. Let’s face it. I’M A “PROBLEM ADULT”!!! I love a good spanking as much as the next guy, but I need positive reinforcement and encouragement every once in a while or I end up doing stuff. I mean, I would take a bullet for you guys… is asking for a couple of votes gonna kill yas? I mean, really. I’ve already spammed sent notifications to a few of you from NewGrounds.

Spread the word. Vote for me….
EricBrooks.Com® – Cuz I’d run over a kitten just to entertain you.™


Klondike Kate stopped by yesterday, to review the recent controversy for her Sunday bounce-a-thonfeature (Much like my “Newz & Gossip” section, except I don’t have the time to deal with petty details like “research” and “the facts”.) Here’s what she says:

“I understand you Eric, especially after I read hours and hours of your tar-and-feathering incident on many different sites. Curiosity finally won and bid me to take a gander at both the offended party’s site and your site to see what all the hoopla was about. (BTW? I had a lot of fun at your site. You have cool shit to give away, you embrace life with big sweaty arms…)”

Big sweaty arms???
*sniff sniff*
okay… well she says more…

“And what did I find? I think you are a smart-ass, just like me. You possess a wicked, irreverent wit which oozes out of every pore. You are a pestering pixie, a mischievous leprechaun, a spirited sprite. You thrive on danger as you skateboard down the railing, whizzing past our heads in a rush of air”

Wow. It’s like she’s known me all my life! :0)

So now, Kate has inspired me to find a way to lay tribute to all of my friends who have said nice things about me this week… without causing trouble.

“Hang in there E, we know you’ve offended lots of good folks… and we love you for it ” – Daphne, Villa Santiago

“Eric made a wiseass comment (uh, AS USUAL. Nothing new there, folks.)” – Angel A. Fish, KissMyFish.Net

“Eric is the kind of guy that prefers to use gasoline when putting out fires so they burn really bright before going away. Asinine, perhaps, but not racist.” – John, Linkworthy

“Eric may be a stupendously outspoken jackass, sure, but racist? Hardly. He’s an equal-opportunity misanthrope.” – Graham, Virulent Memes

“I myself have called Eric many, many names ;), but racist? Never even crossed my mind.” – Lee, of Dailee (in Faith’s comments)

“So that was the spirit the comment was intended in. I knew this instantly when I read it, because I know E very well. He is one of the finest people I have ever known. Period.” – Maria, Dayzed & Confused

There was more… and I’ll add them later.

(Past commentaries…)
“If Don Rickles were a web author, he might come up with something like this. Otherwise impossible to describe. Addictive, in a guilt-inducing fashion.” – Jeffrey Zeldman, Exit Gallery

“If an asteroid were to hit the earth, it would hit Eric Brooks’ House. It wouldn’t stop him or slow him down.” – Alan Herrell, Pixelview Interview

For reasons that completely elude me… YOU PEOPLE LOVE ME!!!!
(I think.)

I kinda rule the latest mess more of a “cultural” thing than a “racial” one… Americans get me. Australians get me. Canadians get me. Brazilians get me. Colombians get me. You guys rule!

Most of Europe (particularly parts of the the U.K.) never seem to understand where I’m coming from (ok, except Germany and the Netherlands… you guys FUCKING ROCK!!!).

Why is that? And did I leave out any of the other countries that appreciate mean-sprited pricks like me?
