I’m thinking of rebranding the site as something like “Cranky’s Cranktastic Site for Talking About Whatever the Hell He Feels Like.” I “might” link to the occasional YouTube vid (so long as it doesn’t take me too long to produce) and have a go at making a podcast no one will listen to, just for shits and giggles. Maybe just the giggles. I don’t need a big mess here.
Now usually I’m intensely interested in three or four disparate topics at a time over the course of a few days, weeks or even months or years. I research the hell out of them, talk about them with everyone I know, get all the juice out – then move the fuck on. It’s a great way to be, I reckon. You learn stuff. And it’s always easier to learn stuff when you’re interested in it. The opposite is also true. Probably why high school and uni were frequently a total waste of time. Boring teachers with no ability or drive to make the content interesting. That’s right; it’s everyone else’s fault I’m dumb.
Anyway, “Cranky’s Cranktastic Site for Talking About Whatever the Hell He Feels Like” seems like a nice meta title that would have been timely about four or five years ago. Better late than never eh.
And so it seems that after a year of sweating it out over this site – ie I literally just sweat in Phuket’s humid climate and did nothing to build the website – it actually has some kind of cash-value.
Cold Hard Cash
That is, according to this other site I just found out about. At the time of writing, siteprice.org estimates the value of crankycarrot.wordpress.blahblahblah at a value of $67. I assume that refers to US dollars, which means it’s worth even more in the Carrot’s native Aussie bucks.
So where do I cash in?
67 USD would be enough to buy me a 30 day visa extension and have 500 Baht left over for a sweet dinner for two at Pizza Company. Aroy, aroy!!
Hey random strangers,
I’m still alive.
As you can see from the density of my posts, blogging is highly unprofitable and barely rewarding distraction from everything else in life.
Here’s my interpretation of what it is to “lose face,” in Asian countries:
And now — if you’ll excuse me — I’d like to get back to this:
Attention all spammers!
Mr Carrot is now approving all generic, vaguely literate comments which are clearly just vague spammy kinds of things masquerading as compliments. Keep ’em coming fellas!
Hell, maybe I’ll even reply to a few. At least those bots took the time to write to poor, lonely Cranky. Sure it was only an automated, fragment of a nanosecond, but that’s more than the rest of you goddamned loafers.
I like how he “actually enjoyed reading it.” High praise indeed
Exactly how much time do you spend trawling the net for Ladyboy info?
There sure is …pervert
This was a comment that, I would just like to say, is a most definitely commenting about something truly comment-worthy. May I suggest you make another comment some time, commenting on the comment-worthy nature of commentary?
