Gut Rumbles

June 16, 2005

i've said it before...

... and I'm gonna say it again for the thick-headed among you. My comments are NOT a chat room, nor are they some kind of internet bulletin board. If you want to comment, go right ahead--- that's why have open comments.

But when I get a "witty" exchange between Misty and Ed, which has nothing to do with the post , my Cracker ass becomes chapped. I don't give a fuck if you two want to get together and giggle like a couple of teen-aged cherries over where to stay in London and what kind of airplane to ride--- but that is what email is for. Or maybe try a fucking cell phone call.

But keep that shit out of my comments. Do you possibly understand how rude you are being? If you want to play "tag" with each other, do it on your own bandwidth. DO NOT decide, "Let's go over the Acidman's comments and court like a couple of idiots."

Hi Misty, If the powers that be can kickstart the "Nimrod Project", that bloody ugly spy plane of yours, I might get to take another trip across the pond. London is a lot of fun, but damn, the accomdations suck!

Posted by Ed at June 16, 2005 08:28 AM

My heart now is throbbing.

Hi Ed, Sadly, I don't control the 'powers that be' yet, but I'm working on it ;) Where were you staying in London? Not all the accomodations here suck, I can assure you! I know some rather nice hotels :)

Posted by Misty at June 16, 2005 08:36 AM

Now my dick is getting hard.

I stayed in a Hilton outside of London. I don't remember where exactly. When it came time to iron my shirts, I discovered there were no steam holes in the iron. That was disaster number one. The plumbing was well... you know, English, but the beer was worth all the suffering!

Gotta run. Duty calls.

Posted by Ed at June 16, 2005 08:48 AM

Ed, A Hilton - say no more, I concur, they do suck! I can recommend far better places to stay round here, one of which being a public toilet in Balham. Yay for your comment about the beer here, but wtf do you mean by 'the plumbing was, you know, English'? what's wrong with the plumbing here?

I don't know anything about English plumbing, but I know self-absorbed people when I see them. Hell, I AM ONE, but I don't use someone's comments to display that fact.

Hi Misty, thanks for the tip. The sinks had two spiggots, one for hot, one for cold. I had never seen such an arrangement. Washing the hands was a bit like - too hot! - too cold! - too hot! - too cold! The lack of wash cloths was a bit disconcerting as well!

The Queen's English can be a bit tricky too. I once asked a bloke for directions at Piccadilly Circus, had him repeat them twice and was still clueless.

All said, I've been over there three times and had a blast!

Posted by Ed at June 16, 2005 11:03 AM

You want "clueless?" Look at this shit on my blog.

Ed, Right there with you on views on taps/faucets/spiggots whatever you want to call 'em. Not all places have such torturous devices in the washrooms, but too many do. As to lack of washcloths, again, you were in a Hilton - nuff said. Re: Queen's English and directions, are you sure you weren't talking to a member of 'our wonderful royal family?'* Nothing any of them say makes any sense, you'd have more success asking a lamp post for directions.


Posted by Misty at June 16, 2005 11:18 AM

Misty... you got one thing right. You're "right there" with Ed when it comes to being a flaming asshole.

Right you are Misty! Besides beer, you can get that wonderful libation known as Absinthe across the pond. I always bring back a bottle of Hills. I've heard that it's not the best brand, but hey, after the third shot it tastes great to me! Of course, the down side is waking up on the floor!

Posted by Ed at June 16, 2005 01:37 PM

I have one very simple question to ask: WHAT THE FUCK WAS ANY OF THAT SHIT doing in my comments on a post about making moonshine? I can tell you right now--- not a god-dam thing, and it surely did not entertain any readers to see that little tete-a-tete between two people who obviously have a great sex life awaiting them because they are so much alike.

I'm going to say it for the last time--- don't do this shit in my comments. I ain't running a goddam dating service here and I could give a lovely fuck about English plumbing. If you become worked-up talking to each other, get your own room. Stay out of mine.

Do that again, and I'll delete ever comment you ever make. Assholes.


Damn I thought you and misty would tete-a-tete, are you jealous now Rob?

(I'm happy you are that mad at me!)

Posted by: livey on June 16, 2005 02:34 PM

"Mad at you?" Hell, Livey, I don't even know who you are. Don't wanna know, either.

Posted by: Acidman on June 16, 2005 02:38 PM

Give 'em hell Rob ! I love it when you raise hell. It just tickles the got-damn shit out of me.

Posted by: assrot on June 16, 2005 02:48 PM

I may be sticking my hand into the fire here (you seem to be a little less tolerant today), but maybe its the result of sort of an "A-man withdrawal". Notice those comments were from early this morning, on your last post from 11:40 last night? It seems you keep very different hours than we 9 to 5ers, and lately its been difficult waiting for your first post of the day. Maybe you could blog more at night so we have something to consume when we get to work?

Ok - I admit it. I'm just trolling for more blog entries, for purely selfish reasons.

Posted by: Jane on June 16, 2005 02:54 PM

if you want to dictate how people post on your blog, you shouldn't have open comments. that's my opinion.

plenty of people keep coming back to blogs because of the other readers they meet there. whether you like it or not, a blog with open comments creates a forum for discussion. that discussion often wanders.

you're just pissed because they're not talking all about YOU.

Posted by: not-troll beth on June 16, 2005 02:57 PM

Ever wonder why your name is blue? It opens a new e-mail and you can send them back and forth as you please. I played tag with Alaska Kim last week. Her dad just happened to live in my hometown at one time. You didn't see any of our ten of so "conversations" on here. If Rob don't like what you do he can tell you to fuck off and then delete your ass.

Posted by: gravdigr on June 16, 2005 03:11 PM

NT Beth, You'd be right, IF the comments were on topic, but those two were wasting bandwith with stuff that should have been done in e-mail or chat room. The topic may wander a bit, but having a personal discussion/flirt fest in open comments is just plain RUDE.

And Jane? Most of us post when we get the right inspiration/information/when the mood strikes us. It's Rob's house, let him roam as he will within it, he has no responsibility to anyone but himself.

That has got to be one of the dumbest comments I've seen here yet LOL.
Of course it would be just too much to ask people to exert some actual self control.

Posted by: Chablis on June 16, 2005 03:20 PM

One last comment.
I'm sorry, I didn't know it wasn't the done thing. I'm new to blogging and comments and so.
I really enjoyed reading your blog, and was in the proccess of catching up on your previous posts, but obviously hadn't got to the warning about comments etc.
Not everybody has followed you blog all the way through.
Oh and btw, that was not flirting with Ed, simply an exchange of comments that did start from a comment about your fine moonshine.
YOU I emailed ;)
Again, sorry I caused any upset. At the end of the day, at least being flamed in public is better than not being noticed at all...

Anyone going to the Hall and Oates concert next week in Michigan. I've got an extra ticket.
Maybe we could get together before hand and talk about A-man.


'sarcsasm off'

Give em hell's your site.

Posted by: jimboy on June 16, 2005 03:35 PM

You don't walk into somebody's house and crap on the carpet. Have the same respect for comments; keep it within the tone and timbre of the post that was written.

Open comments have fuck-nothing to do with it. Respect does.

My balls itch.

Posted by: rightisright on June 16, 2005 03:49 PM

Thoroughly chastened, Rob! We did get a bit off topic. And yes I'm new and learning the ropes. I'll keep it cogent in the future!

Posted by: Ed on June 16, 2005 03:51 PM

LOL, Jane.

Acidman is just our little writer monkey.

Write, Acid, write. And mind you watch the clock.

Posted by: Trish on June 16, 2005 04:06 PM

Gravdigr is right -- I had a couple questions for him about where he lived, but I didn't play tag with him in Acidman's comments. That is just rude. If you want to comment about Acidman's post, great. But if you are going to be off-topic with a specific person, use email or one of them cell phones that you people are so fond of.

Posted by: Alaska Kim on June 16, 2005 05:09 PM

It's no good, I have to ask - Acidman, I know it was off topic as I said before, but how on earth can saying I could recommend a hotel that didn't suck and then a couple of comments about plumbing be construed in anyones mind as flirting? Ed, I'm sorry if you got the wrong idea, but all I was saying was not all of London was full of crap hotels with strange plumbing and full of people who can't understand americans. I would try and help anyone who wanted to visit here, by giving them advice, certainly doesn't mean that I'm about to leap into bed with them at the first opportunity! If anybody can tell me htf a conclusion that I am destined to have 'a great sex life' and a cosy little tete-a-tete with someone from that*, please please do! If trying to be friendly and helpful gets translated into self-absorbed and gagging for it in the States, then I certainly wouldn't want to visit...

*unless they really do get turned on by plumbing that is.

Posted by: Misty on June 16, 2005 05:37 PM

You don't want to know me? I'm crushed! Now I have the vapors and this time I am jumping off that bridge!

damn fickle wimman, er, man

Posted by: livey on June 16, 2005 05:48 PM

oops my first post was supposed to say I'm happy you AREN'T that mad at me.

now I'm jumping

Posted by: livey on June 16, 2005 06:18 PM I have to cancel my plans to meet up with all those guys here in your comment box! Party Pooper!

Posted by: Wendi on June 16, 2005 08:19 PM

Ed and Misty

Thanks for taking off some of the heat.

Smif loves creating controversy, all the while he seemingly complains. It is good for readership levels. Every time he responds or someone rolls two sixes in an argument against him, the comments take off, and he loves that.


Posted by: jb on June 16, 2005 09:23 PM

Just wondering: Is there anyone here who wasn't a newbie at some time? Lighten up, guys. Please.

Posted by: Indigo on June 16, 2005 11:22 PM

Y'all just try THIS some time: "You're coming to (wherever)? You need accomodations? I can give you a lot of really good information. Just email me at (wherever).

Good deed done. You don't need my comments for that.

Posted by: Acidman on June 16, 2005 11:22 PM

Hey, check and see if Ed and Misty are the same IP. Juliette over at Baldilocks had an Ed that had multiple personalities. :)

Posted by: Cythen on June 17, 2005 03:24 AM

Don't mind Acidbrain Misty, he just hasn't been laid in a really long time and the closest thing he has had to a date in awhile was Catfish coming over to help him make moonshine last night. You don't need to feel bad for upsetting the Hillbilly BlogNazi, he is not really all that intimidating. He just bitches to make sure you know he is in charge of HIS BLOG. Just picture Rob as Ernest T. Bass and his buddy Catfish as Otis and you'll soon get the picture of who is yelling at you. Ed, you're just a horny idiot with no rap with the ladies and should have known better.

Posted by: PJ on June 17, 2005 04:07 AM

Thanks PJ, As much as I object to being called 'clueless' and a 'flaming arsehole' I guess I shouldn't really get upset over a man who gets turned on by plumbing.
And to think I was considering flirting with HIM...
Ah well.

Posted by: Misty on June 17, 2005 05:05 AM

Damn! A little public flogging and I'm getting cudos from JB. What's the Blogosphere coming to? I had a bit of a sulk last night and talked with my buddy Jim Beam and my Dear Departed Mom. She says to me: "Ed, if you go into somebody's house and piss or shit on the floor, drunk or sober, you owe them an apology, and you clean up your own mess!"

She's right , of course, so, Aman please accept my humble apology, I should have known better.

On another note, in my neck of the southern woods, a gentleman does not insult a lady under any, but the most egregious cicumstances.

Had you insulted my Mother, Wife, or Daughter we would be dusting of our copies of "Code Duelo" and contacting our Seconds.

I had always hoped to share a drink with you and Cat on my next visit to Savannah, but after reading your post concerning the lovely Christina, I'm not sure I'd care to.

Regarding your post about the hostage situation, you should learn and practice the "hostage shot." There is a spot on the forehead approximately 1" X 2". A bullet in this area will sever the brain's contact with the spinal column, so the BG's finger won't twitch and your Loved One will be safe. I was taught this last month in my CHP class.

You should practice this at forty paces.

Posted by: Ed on June 17, 2005 08:48 AM

Since Ed doesn't want to drink with you and Catfish now Acidbrain, I guess I'll take his tin cup of shine. I may need to get Misty drunk and let her have her way with me.

Oops, sorry.......forgot the rules, NO FLIRTING ON HERE WITH MISTY!

Posted by: PJ on June 18, 2005 03:12 AM

PJ, Give me one good reason why I'd consider getting drunk and 'having my way with you' ;)

Damn, I was flirting there.. Bad Misty - no cookie!

Posted by: Misty on June 18, 2005 04:31 AM

Just one? That's too easy.

Posted by: PJ on June 19, 2005 03:12 AM

1. I definitely wouldn't be spending the whole evening with you just TALKING about plumbing. There cums a time to actually bring out the pipe.

2. If I complained about getting a crimp in my worm the night before, you can bet I would not be talking about making moonshine with my buddy Catfish.

Posted by: PJ on June 19, 2005 03:21 AM

3. Getting drunk and having your way with me just go hand in hand........they both will cure what ails ya babydoll.

OKAY..........NO MORE FLIRTING!!!........The Hillbilly BlogNazi will come down on us both like a ton of pricks, er I mean bricks....hee hee!

Posted by: PJ on June 19, 2005 03:31 AM

PJ, when I said 'one good reason' I did mean one that was up to getting ME going, that didn't even come close ;)

S**t, there I go again, I will now go and smack my own butt with a wet mackeral as a punishment...


Posted by: Misty on June 19, 2005 07:10 PM

You are a tough nut to crack Misty. I am guessing you are the type that wouldn't budge unless I had a ten-inch monster in my pants........Well, I hate to be discriminatory, but I ain't cuttin' two inches off for NOBODY!!!

Posted by: PJ on June 20, 2005 02:31 AM

LOL, You have no idea just how tough a nut to crack I am ;) ten-inch monsters? hmm, sounds interesting, but a man that can talk to me and capture my interest with his words, that would be getting somewhere...
