A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Flatulence
Have you ever heard of Robert Brockway? |
Yeah, me neither. But that could be a very temporary thing.
Since I can only count on some of you to read this far without getting distracted by something shiny on your desk, let me say to click that link and digg the article. If you don't have a digg account, please consider making one so you can participate. If you like the article, please share it with others and ask them to do the same.
Robert / gomijin has begun a mini-revolution. Atomfilms.com, best known for its short films, is hoping to make itself a more comedy driven website. As proof of concept, they fingered gomi as the typewriter monkey with the most potential and asked him to write the VERY funny entry on that link.
While I am very happy for him, I think we all know there isn't a solitary ounce of altruism in me, so here's why I pretend to give a shit. The success of this article has a very real bearing on me having the same opportunity. I've had some contact with the same editor Bob-o has been working with and it looks like there's a good chance for me to work there as well. If it works out it would mean, at a minimum, receiving invaluable exposure on a high profile site at a payrate that works out to better than minimum wage. My hopes range well beyond the minimum possible, but I'm trying to keep my excitement dialed down.
I know a lot of my activity around here lately has been pimping various things so I apologize for constantly pawing at you. What's more, this won't be the last time because should I get an article there I'll be back here begging for the same diggs I want tossed at Rob's masterwork. I can only say that I am quite unexpectedly getting recognition of my writing as a marketable commodity, something I've always dreamed about, and you can play a role in making it happen.
Not interested in making this little boy's dreams come true? Fine. Digg that article and I will SUCK YOUR FILTHY COCK. Lord only knows what I'll do for that next link.
