A question about MOFB:→[More:] What is your opinion about the blog title? I just changed it to that from "Doohickie / He's just this guy..." Should I go back to what it was, or is the new title better?
I like it. Especially if you're gonna go in a new direction with your blog - the old one can not be found. One consideration might be that, on a FF tab, it says "Not Found" sSo I initially thought it was a 404 page.
In my mind it was like MonkeyButter pictured it.... I liked it.
But after I put it up there... not so sure.
As for "He's just this guy..." That's a quote (kind of) from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. When Galactic President Zaphod Beeblebrox is introduced, his "private brain car specialist" uses these words to describe him: "Vell, Zaphod's just zis guy, you know?"
So, from that I got "He's just this guy..." It's not supposed to be a general term, "a guy." It refers specifically to me. I'm just this guy.
Think of something better, though, and I'll consider it. Hitchhiker is kind of old news anyway.
The Little Chocolate Donuts thing, jan? That's a Saturday Night Live skit where John Belushi parodies Bruce Jenner's Wheaties commercial. But instead of selling Wheaties (which are supposed to be healthy), Belushi is advertising "Little Chocolate Donuts" while smoking a cigarette. Classic first generation Saturday Night Live that I tripped across a couple days ago.
