I hate your commercial, but your product is amazing!

Ha, I have a soft spot for the Head-On commercial with the black guy with the bugged out eyes and scary voice. I guess that’s what makes it so funny.

Okay, so I guess this is where I say that I’ve had a painfully uneventful week. I’m thinking Fucking Gorgeous is a flirt. And that sucks monkeys, but I’m not ruling anything out just yet. He’s on vacation this week (dammit, I don’t have my dose), so…psh. But that just gives me more time to prepare for bone-jumping. πŸ˜€

I finally started my volunteer job at the All Stars Project. It was amazing. One of the easiest jobs ever. I’m on house staff, and on Saturday, I was greeting. Despite popular belief, I’m not exactly the most outgoing person in the world, but it’s getting a little better (I have to work on the eye contact issue I have1). They fed and got the audience tipsy, then when the house opened for the play, we took up the rest of the food. They had some grilled chicken and that was freaking great. Then I added some ranch dressing…oh, so freaking good. It didn’t help that I didn’t eat a lot during the day, but I guess it was well worth it maybe?

The funniest thing happened today. It was a stereotypical blonde moment2 to end all blonde moments. My mom was replacing the batteries for the carbon monoxide alarm, and she tested it. It chirped, so she asked me why it was chirping. I told her that it chirps when you test it. Then she asks what the flashing red button means. I told her that it says to “move to fresh air”. So she says “then move it to fresh air”. While moving it to “fresh air” (yes, I actually did it, which probably helped the funny factor of it all), I told her that I think when they say to “move to fresh air”, they mean that we should move to fresh air. We were rolling after that one! You know what I don’t get though? They have “move to fresh air” on the alarm, thinking that people are actually going to wait a second to read what it says. I can imagine it…

*chirp chirp chirp*
“Oh shit, it’s the CO alarm! Let’s see what’s going on. Oh, it says move to fresh air. Okay, let’s move you to fresh–*chokes, keels over and dies*”

Killed by their own stupidity. Damn.

Plugwhoring time! My dearest Angel has given Alecia METAMORPHOSIS.NU. I want to welcome Alecia back to the blogging world because she disappeared for like 7 months and told her that I hope that she comes back eventually. This was like last week, lol. Oh how she works so quickly. So Alecia, my darling, welcome back.

New Project Alert! I’m still working on Antihero, and I’m most likely going to move the site to the CF domain. I’m not sure if I’m going to do the portfolio at DTM.org. I found the reason why I’m putting it off. I lost interest a long time ago. At least with Antihero, I’m actually working on a few things. Maybe I should explain the whole objective for Antihero.

Everyone and their momma have “you” content all over their sites. It’s brushes, icons, tutorials…stuff like that. The thing is that a lot of this stuff is overdone, and in a lot of cases, not done very well. So the objective for Antihero is to break that trend. It’s supposed to really emphasize original work. So basically, every on Antihero is supposed to be all original stuff–brushes, fonts, and even Windows skins. I’ve been working on the fonts and skins for a while. But the thing is that I want to finish at least 5 fonts and 2 skins before I actually open the site. I’m on one font and one skin. And I haven’t even touched the brushes yet. There will be no tutorials, and the fonts will not be lifted from other sites (a lot of them say to not redistribute anyway). So there it is.

Now for the new project. Since I’ve pretty much scrapped the portfolio (for now), I thought that I’d work on something else. This one might be up a lot quicker than even Antihero. I’m thinking of doing a review site. Yes, I know exactly what you’re going to say. I have experience doing reviews, since I was part of AGn Reviews for a while. I’m not going to be completely nasty. Now in order to start it off, I need a few guinea pigs. So if you want a review of your site from me, then email me (choiceofcinderel [at] aim.com).

I thought that Xposure was dead. Apparently some people are still getting emails, and I stopped a long time ago. Someone commented on my site clearly fishing for comments, and that’s not right. Reply to the blog with something of substance. I know that I lack substance in my blog sometimes, but…really. I should really go to that person’s site and say “oh, that sucks, cool site though” without reading a thing. I feel like 333 right now–half evil.

1: It turns out that I have this issue more with guys I have a crush on. So Fucking Gorgeous obviously has noticed it.
2: This line is not intended to offend any blondes. I’m sorry if I did, but stop being so damn sensitive! You’re not (all) dumb. πŸ˜€

  1. i have a lot of blonde moments. My friends STILL make fun of me of somethin that happened atleast 7 years ago. I was like 8 and I was watchin pocahontas. You know the part where she dives off the waterfall while signing just around the riverbed? Well I dived off with her but I was on my parents bed and my hands all pointed perfect went straight into the carpet and i almost shattered my wrists. Now thats an air head move. lol

  2. Oh yes, many tv commercials are bad but you end up buying the product anyway. Congrats on your job too, sometimes it’s hard if you meet those guys you like but think you’re having a lot of fun, you don’t have to impress them at all. I really like your idea for Antihero. I think that most of those “you” sections are just to catch more visitors but people know where to find brushes and such, so you will be successful if you keep on that idea.

  3. Why does that Head-On sound so familiar?? I swear… that images is so vaguely familiar… probably one of those “CHILDHOOD MEMORIES” Deja Vu things O_O

    Sounds like you had a good time with the All Stars. How else are you supposed to serve to the community and get some food while in it at the same time?? After all, you gotta HELP THAT COMMUNITY πŸ™‚

    HAHA! Killed by their own stupidity :P. Oh yeah, I wouldn’t say stupidity πŸ˜€ just a blonde coincidence that ended by death. Wait… that could be accounted for stupidity πŸ˜€

    Going for one of those maverick unique sites? πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see it. I swear, there ARE to many sites that offer blends, icons, all that same stuff. Annoying to see the SAME stuff over and over again. I wanna see something new. I wanna see you do that πŸ™‚

    Cool site :]

  4. Aww, I’m glad you’re starting your new job. It’ll be good for you and I know you love to do it.

    I forgot.. what was DTM supposed to be again? Hah, my memory is such crap. Lol.

    Anyway, Alecia is going to be MIA for the next week. The place she is staying at doesn’t have internet so she is won’t be on for awhile. It’s good to see her back in the fold though.

    Anyway, I’m off. I need to sleep… O___o

  5. Congrats on the new job! I’m glad it’s actually easy. I’m not a very outspoken person either πŸ™ AH, grill chicken. Damn. I miss eating it.

    LOL, okkk. I never had one before so I don’t know how to operate it, but it sounds funny =]

    Xposure’s not dead. They’res just A LOTTA dead sites. When I look in my xposure emails and get ready to start commenting, apparently all of the sites are dead πŸ™ YEAH, I hate it when people do that. I’ve never actually reported them before … cause they did comment and it seems too mean.

  6. Oh man, those Head-On commercials are nuts. And it seems like they show one, show a different commercial, and then show ANOTHER Head-On commercial. Congrats on your new job. It sounds interesting. πŸ™‚

  7. Hmm have never seen a Head-On commercial, probably to do with being on the wrong side of the Atlantic…

    I hate how loud the testing chirp of a carbon monoxide alarm is. Or maybe it’s just me, or my experience of just one carbon monoxide alarm that was most likely faulty.

    When I originally started getting my own domain(s) I thought I’d make brushes etc, but it didn’t take long, like you said, to realise that kind of thing is overdone. Massively. So I’ve never made brushes, layouts, textures, fonts…. etc. It means I have more time rambling on people’s blogs instead. πŸ™‚

    Review huh? Never had my site reviewed. Not sure I really want to either… well maybe once I’ve put more stuff on it. It’s er, lacking at the moment!

  8. I like ‘you’ content sites, actually, and while I agree that they’re a bit over done now, there isn’t an original idea on the internet these days so any site you go to’s been done to death already, lol.

    I’ve never seen the Head On commercial, I don’t even know what that is, lol.

  9. Yeah, I agree. They are so funny. “Head on-from the makers of active on” xD

    And on my site, I seperate the downloads and tutorials and the graphics. I think it makes it alot easier to navigate =/
    I dont have “site” on my navigation either

  10. Grilled chicken… gaaaah. Now I’m really hungry. πŸ™

    Oh, good luck with your Antihero project! I’ve always wanted to try making brushes but I stopped webdesigning for a while and right now I feel like I’m still getting the hang of it – which is weird because I’ve been back for a year. *sigh…
