Adventures in Web Design

March 5, 2012 by

I currently hold a salaried position as a webmaster/web designer, but I occasionally still take on free-lance jobs, mostly as a favor, but also when the client offers me a really lucrative deal based on the time needed to create the project. Most of these utilize my years of expertise rather than time-consuming grunt work. I make a good living now and I don’t really seek new work, but if something really advantageous comes along, I’m open to listen.

Which brings me to an unsolicited email I got today from someone who claims he was referred by one of my old clients:

3:37 PM (50 minutes ago)
to dw

I have a party who wishes to set up an active mineral and water dowsing website. He is a professional dowser, has written two books on the subject and has given many presentations on the subject.. He would start working this Spring assuming the new website garnered clients. He is very established in the business but desires a modern active website with a view towards clients in the Western and Central US. I estimate that the business, an LLC to be established, will not have income until August or September.

Are you, Mr. Web Designer/ Webmaster willing to take on the full responsibilities of design, implementation, along with site ranking management and wait until the Fall to get paid by the LLC?

My answer:

Tell your “party” to hold his dowser over this email and see which is my answer:

NO                            NO

Andrew Breitbart: a great man, a great loss

March 3, 2012 by

When I first saw the news of Andrew Breitbart’s death, upon opening my folder of “re-check all day” blogs and clicking the Big Journalism tab, I thought I misread it. Then, I thought maybe it was one of Mr. Breitbart’s jests, but my heart fell, knowing this would be much too serious a matter about which to joke, with a wife and young children involved.

Drudge didn’t have it right away, but other blogs did, and it began to sink in, and I felt an emptiness in the pit of my stomach. I knew immediately a great presence and leader had been taken from us, and the vicissitudes of the campaign season would be less easy to handle without Andrew to fight on our side.

Truly, a great and shining sword for the cause of conservatism in popular culture, the internet and social media has been forever sheathed.

Old Russian saying

March 2, 2012 by

“The truth is that the State is a conspiracy designed not only to exploit, but above all to corrupt its citizens.”

An old Russian (pre-Soviet) said it. It’s truer today, and in the USA more than anywhere.

David Frum and Matthew Yglesias are pieces of shit, not human beings

March 1, 2012 by

Well, David Frum (the turn-coat Kos asslicker who makes a living trashing the people who gave him his start) manages to write the most graceless piece possible about Andrew Breitbart’s death, but what can you expect.

He goes on to say Andrew wasn’t a racist. Some of his commenters give him props for that.

No, he just accuses Andrew of racist behaviour, then tries to modify it by saying he wasn’t an actual racist, he just talked like one. Fuck frum, if he wasn’t a useful idiot for the left, he wouldn’t have a job. As it is, they hold him to castigate conservatives as if he had some kind of moral weight. He doesn’t. He’s a douchebag and a pantload.

And Yglesias, did Breitbart ever come down to where you work and slap the cock out of your mouth? Matty’s panties are so bunched up he can probably ride them to orgasm. Fuck you asshole. Obviously Breitbart landed a few on your side, that’s why you hate him and gloat over his death. Well, there’s millions more where he came from, buddy. And we’re all going to bully your gay ass like you’re still a highschool Judy Garland fan with a pink-streaked mullet and a fringed leather jacket and fairy boots.

How do you tell an Italian blog? Dago wop wop wop wop wop…

February 20, 2012 by

I guess I’m just not getting it. Someone indirectly referred to Jeremy Lin (a basketball player, if you don’t know) as a “chink”.

If someone called me a “wop” or a “dago” (both sets of grandparents were of Italian descent and my paternal grandmother came over from Italy as a little girl) I’d just laugh at something so absurd. I wouldn’t try to get someone fired, I really wouldn’t. I almost feel as if we should be able to yell back and forth and call each other dago and wop and n-word and c-word and douchebag and asshole. Who gives a rat’s ass?

Tina Fey is a despicable, talentless hack, but the left loves her for demeaning Palin

February 20, 2012 by

What a load of bollocks. The left (and no one else) loves Fey because she caricatured Sarah Palin, and with big media assistance, helped push the narrative Palin was stupid and vapid, to the point low information voters actually thought things Fey said were actual Palin quotes (“I can see Russia from my house”).

Femifista rapes my vagina with stupid

February 18, 2012 by

This post raped my vagina with stupid, and if I feel raped, it must be real. I’m a woman and therefore I ride the ultimate and unimpeachable moral highhorse. My weapons are smug self-righteousness in one hand and condescension in the other.

I wonder if it counts as “rape” to have your brain sucked out or your body dismembered and taken out piece by piece because your very existence is inconvenient to your mother? That would seem more like rape than some petty indignity like a sonogram.

You fags are a bunch of retards.

February 14, 2012 by

This occurred to me when the Vince Vaughan controversy about saying electric cars were for fags (they are) and the gay lobby got their panties all twisted up in their butt-cracks, and not in a good way.

Homosexuals have pretty much settles on “gay” as a euphemism for men who like to suck cock, put their penis in another man’s asshole (tops), have another man put his penis in their asshole (bottoms), or do a little of both (versatile) and other ancillary acts like adoring Madonna.

Ok, that’s gay and that’s cool. The rest of us aren’t referring to that when we use the word “fag” (mostly)- they have decided they want to be called “gay”, and have co-opted the word and it can no longer be used in it’s original sense, it’s so associated with homosexuality (you can’t call it “faggotry”).

More mush from the Romney-RINO wimps

February 14, 2012 by

Malor, the supposed superior intellect over at AOSHQ, lectures us lesser mortals on our stupid, hypocritical, idiotic, deluded support for Santorum (just as he did Gingrich supporters before Santorum’s surge). Seems Santorum is less than perfect and doesn’t live up to malor’s high standards as a conservative (as romney presumably does).

Ho Hum. Haven’t we heard this all before. Pesky Tea Party and other conservative types just won’t get in line and settle for romney like good little sheep, and they must be chastised for it.

Another Crackhead bites the dust

February 12, 2012 by

Whitney and Winehouse a few months apart– I’m always sickened by the fact that millions of singers and musicians who are much more talented, disciplined and worthy never make it, while terrible people like Houston and Winehouse get it all handed to them on a silver platter, fame, wealth and stardom, and they piss it away basically because they can’t handle having all the money in the world with which to party.

It reminds me of the PBS special about cocaine where the monkey will keep pushing the button and doing more and more cocaine until it dies. RIP Whitney (Rest In Pipe)

I’ll remember her with a crackpipe in her mouth, or butchering the Nat’l Anthem by changing the melody and chord pattern (hey, she’s just improving on the original, and she’s a star, after all!).

I’m a firm believer in Karma, and while good people get diseases and are involved in accidents, most of the people who OD are bad people who deserve it. They caused a great deal of heartache, harm and pain to others in their life and nothing so becomes them in this world like the leaving of it.
