Gut Rumbles

gives me a problem

Ever since Christina started her blog, she's been doing this kind of shit. Maybe doing it once is a hoot, but over and over again (especially when the dancing monkeys all seem eager to participate) just gets OLD, in MY humble opinion. Who really gives a lovely fuck?

Besides, if Christina has so many wonderful ideas for story-lines, why doesn't she write the stories HERSELF, instead of holding a hoop and nodding approvingly as the dancing monkeys jump through? Who died and made HER Queen Bee?

Don't get me wrong here. If she can get you to do it, and if you're willing to be a dancing monkey, go right ahead. If being a member of a "club" makes you feel warm and fuzzy, then join with enthuiasm. It's your life and your blog, and I'm the last person on earth to tell you what to do with the combination of the two. Go forth, live long, and prosper.

But I can't get the picture of a dominatrix, dressed in black leather and chains, with cufflinks dangling from her garter and a whip in her hand, hissing, "DANCE, little monkey! DANCE for ME! BWHAHAHAHAHAAAA!"

I dance like a fucktard. It just ain't in my nature.

People tell me that I have "Mindless Minions" reading my blog. Hell, I can't hold a candle to Christina. The really sad part is--- I've read many a good blogger who actually sweated Christina's "deadlines" and dropped everything else they were doing to jump through that hoop on time.

Maybe I'm just envious of her organizational skills and her ability to manipulate people. Maybe. Maybe I believe that she thinks the sun rises and sets right square in the crack of her ass, too. Maybe. If I were holding her "diva" hoop, I might believe the same thing about myself, if I kept seeing people dancing monkeys willingly jump through it. It certainly appears to work.

Y'all have fun with that shit. And be sure to link Christina every time you jump through her hoop.


You calling me a dancing money, bitch? You're just jealous because I can out write your ass. I can out write everybody's ass.

And that would be MONKEY. Like the one with the cymbals, who also out writes most bloggers I know.

Christina is a lovely woman...I have a hard time swallowing this scenario of her thinking the sun sets on her ass....I enjoy all the writings her "clubs" have done...very talented people who might not otherwise have the courage to take on this kind of thing. Christina brings out the creativity in people and as my girl Martha Stewart says..."that's a good thing."

You are a complete prick. Leave Christina alone - she certainly doesn't care a wit about your bitterness.

And yes, I would know.

Posted by: sadie on June 17, 2005 03:52 AM

Divas UNIITE! Wait... y'all already did that.

And V-Man--- I'm not saying that you can't write. Can you SHOOT? We'll find out next weekend.

Posted by: Acidman on June 17, 2005 04:49 AM

Perhaps the people who choose to participate do so because the lady laid them an interesting challenge and they want to see what THEY can do?

Personally i think it's an interesting project and displays some great versatility in the people who write, and you just kinda like the view of Chrissy in the leather.

Posted by: silk on June 17, 2005 06:43 AM

Oh, I can shoot alright. Tons. Fortunately, they are blanks now.

Posted by: Velociman on June 17, 2005 08:12 AM

.. I'll write what I want... whenever I feel like it...

.. I like seeing the way people twist stories.. but jumping through hoops?... I don't see it that way... it's just entertainment... besides, I think everyone who participates is asked.. they could always decline..

Posted by: Eric on June 17, 2005 08:22 AM

Hey, want me to check to see if the "" domain is available? That way whenever you decide to be a whiny little pussy you can cross-post the stuff over there. Just let me know.

Posted by: zonker on June 17, 2005 08:45 AM

Who is Christina?

Posted by: GUYK on June 17, 2005 08:51 AM

Better yet, can I see her ass? Hard to decide if the sun sets on it when I haven't seen it.

Posted by: assrot on June 17, 2005 09:00 AM

"Can you SHOOT?"

"Oh, I can shoot alright. Tons. Fortunately, they are blanks now."

Praise be that wasn't a couple of n00bs passing that shit back and forth in the comments.

Fucktard is right.

What, precisely, are you trying to accomplish here? Are your complaints legitimate? No. Are they meant to puff up your already overinflated sense of self? Yes. (Talk about someone thinking the sun rises and sets right square in the crack of their ass!) What, exactly, is your deal? You're simply looking to bait people. You want a response. That's all you're interested in. Ever. As such, most people would call you a troll. But as far as being a blogger is concerned, well, you are the proverbial one-trick pony. What, exactly, do you create with your blog other than an echo chamber for your mindless minions? Chrissy creates. She fosters an environment where creativity is prized above all else. People respect that and want to participate. She manipulates no one. Where, exactly, on this here blog can we find that sort of activity? Hmmm? Point me to it! I'd love to see what you'd consider to be creative. Methinks you can't even take a creative dump first thing in the morning.

Get off your ass and do something productive, you self-righteous little prick and stop attacking bloggers who offer something you never could dream of giving up for the dissection of the masses. Go ahead. I dare you. Methinks you'll have less time for bitching, moaning and attacking bloggers who haven't done anything to deserve it.

Oh for GOD'S sake - I have kept my mouth shut long enough.

I honestly and truly think you have gone over the edge Rob. With all the blogs and writers out there, why must you go after her? I think she has done a great job in actually encouraging people to write more that what they might believe they are capable of writing. Manipulative? I highly doubt it. Organized? You bet your ass.

I've spoken to Christina many times and I am proud to call her my friend. She is a wonderful woman. You've met her - you know what she is like and just how nice she is too. I have no idea why you feel compelled to bash her or her ideas.

I am no dancing monkey nor am I a "Mindless Minion". I don't jump though hoops nor do I blog to please anyone but myself. I feel very sorry that you feel such a need to be nasty to someone who is just a very kind and sweet person.

I can't help but agree with are all acting like little trained all know Rob likes to stir up shit...thrives on the attention and conflict...and as soon as he puts his hoop...errr...entry out..there you go...just like the flying monkeys that lived in Oz....Rob...I love this keep showing how most people can affirm "Pavlov's Dog" experiment is the God's honest bell needed...just post something a little bit offensive, that makes some people realize they are true dumb asses and let the salivating begin!

Posted by: Kellie on June 17, 2005 09:40 AM

Excuse me Kellie...showing we are true dumb asses for disagreeing? What's truly ignorant is calling people names..people of whom you don't know.

Posted by: Sandy on June 17, 2005 09:54 AM

Huh. And here I thought some of us just enjoyed having an excuse to write sudden fiction. Especially when someone we genuinely like invites us.

But I guess you're right. Whining gets a lot more hits and comments. Doesn't it?

Posted by: Tanya on June 17, 2005 10:09 AM

ROFLMAO,, Rob let me know when you get the hooks out it looks like all these fish are in the boat.

Posted by: James Old Guy on June 17, 2005 10:32 AM

Ya'll all maybe pissed at my buddy, but at least, Rob speaks his mine. All of you should know Rob by now, if you don't want to hear what the acidman has to say, then click the motherfucker OFF, Cat

Posted by: catfish on June 17, 2005 10:37 AM

You just LOVE to start shit, don't you?

My favorite rebuttal:
What's truly ignorant is calling people names..people of whom you don't know.

Granted, I do hold a Bachelor's degree and it's for English, so I may be a little critical. However, for future reference, when denying that one is a dumbass, and stating information that the person in question does not know you: and therefore is not qualified to call you a dumbass. Please take note:
Using the phrase "people of whom you do not know" defies any logical grammatical rule or reasoning. Which, in turn, proves the statement that if one writes like a dumbass, and reasons like a dumbass, then yes, you've got it now, say it out loud: It's a dumbass! If at any time you would like to improve your status, to gain knowledge in hopes of better communicating when you disagree with someone, feel free to peruse this site:
WEBGRAMMAR and if this site is too much for you, please refrain from debating. This will be my last post on this subject, I have decided that it is not fair to have a battle of wits, with someone who came to the fight unarmed. Have a great day!

Posted by: Kellie on June 17, 2005 11:02 AM

Well if you gotta dig that deep in your bag of tricks to try and make me feel like a "dumbass" ...more power to you.....

Posted by: Sandy on June 17, 2005 11:55 AM

Damn -- you women are something else, especially the new-comers. Rob does this type of thing all the time, he starts crap and then sits back and watches the fireworks. You guys jump on it like stink on shit every time. He likes toying with you, and you are too predictable.

Heh. I love it here!

Posted by: Alaska Kim on June 17, 2005 12:00 PM

I just love being a bitch. It makes me feel like a woman. :-) Meoww

I know that there is Godwin's Law, which states that the first person to toss around the word 'nazi' automatically loses a flamewar.

I'm wondering if there is a similar law for those who can't find a better way to add to a debate without resorting to pointing out mild grammar or spelling mistakes? Or perhaps those who fall back on 'I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person' because they can't find anything intelligent to say? Really, it's the oldest retort in the book, people. Find some new material.

Posted by: Chablis on June 17, 2005 02:34 PM

Okay..I lose...damn, wonder how I'll sleep?

Posted by: Kellie on June 17, 2005 03:48 PM

Cat: I know he does it all the time. He just almost never does it to anyone I give a rat's ass about. :o)

Posted by: Tanya on June 17, 2005 04:27 PM

rob you are right a woman needs to know her
place and STAY THERE

Posted by: john on June 18, 2005 07:55 PM

Rob - Does this mean you're not going to Christina's meetup in Nawlins next month?
