A LITTLE TIP WITH HTML

My new favorite blog, SomeBlogsAreBetterThanOther, could use the following html tip:

Please have your links open up into a new window. You can do this by following the following HTML coding guide:
(switch this symbol: "{" with "<" and "}" with ">")
{a href="http://website here.com" target="_blank"}words that you think are clever{/a}

Now, just so you know, i'm not giving your blog attention to get on your good graces. I could care less. Anything negative that you could say about me, i've already said/heard about 39thousand times over. Sure, you can be 39001, but I'm too easy of a target. If you saw me in person, you'd be surprised by the gigantic target on my forehead.

For example: When my brothers and I broke the fast after Yom Kippur, we laughed about how you said that the doorways of my apt weren't big enough for my ego. My brothers suggested I look into that. I agreed.

Best of luck with your blog. I hope you take my advice with the HTML coding. My brother was a better anti blogger than you.

PS - The new Good Charlotte record is really fucking good.

Oh come on - you do kinda have a big ego. But it's your shtick. So it's cool. I guess.

As for Good Charlotte...good lord. I didn't know you were a disaffected sophomore at Montclair High who's fed up with her parents' telling her what to do. Are you going to try some beer soon? Or maybe [gasp] some pot?

Love,
Jason Mulgrew

i didn't realize Good Charlotte and "really fucking good" could be used in a sentence together.

i read your blog at least once a day but now i think i just do it out of habit. i used to be interesting but now i just think you're annoying.

Ohh, but reading something that's so "angry" is ten times better than trying to get work done. Thank you for posting it. -epg.

I feel you on the new window thing - but I feel kind of ass-raped when people's blogs open new windows. Then again that register.com thing on the bottom of this blog is total ass-rapage.

If you use a modern browser like Firefox or Safari or Netscape 7, you can open links in new tabs - once you start doing that, you'll never go back.

I guess a blog commenting on blog-worthiness of blogs could be an interesting platform for commentary if said blog wasn't a self-congratulating cluster-fuck of useless, backbiting shit. But what do I know. I only write a useless, shitty blog myself.

And small comment on the free-for-all of negative comments: what gives? I do like how they're always anonymous though. I think that's pretty smart in a cowardly, pussified sort of way.

Anonymous said...

Hmmm....maybe if you got a new web host that when you clicked on YOUR links didn't keep the register.com half page banner and your web address. Maybe you could work on that.

Why is it I get the feeling this anti-blogger is just you or your friends having a good go at bloggers you don't like? (Start with yourselves, move on) This seems to be the latest trend - making up fake blogs that slag your own or mock them somehow. Craig the Boyfriend? A girl posing as a guy online? How brilliant! That's never been done! Have the balls to insult people directly at least - and I don't mean your readers.

Did I miss a memo? Craig is a girl? I thought it was Greg himself all along...

Sarah said...

i hate that fucking banner at the bottom of this blog as much as anyone. that's why when i check the blog i go to ultragrrrl.blogspot.com

that fucking thing is gonna die!!!!

The real irony here is that the only way that dude will get any trafic is when the blogs he "hates" link to him.

And Good Charlotte will never be anything but a no-talent bunch of whiny ass clowns who will be the first with their backs to the wall when the revolution comes.

the revolution????

you almost made mountain dew shoot out my nose!

yeah... raise up.

sarah,
seeing as though you have a respect for animals all over the world, and that you have and propagate a far-reaching and widely read blog, can you help me share this message with your animal friendly readers?

thanks.

I knew about this blog before Ultra posted, granted only a few days before, because somebody sent me a link. So people do read it. And it's about time somebody finally calls it like it is—most of these blogs completely suck and are self-congratulatory ego strokes. I look forward to more.

holmes said...

i will always find an allure to sarah until she lets me finally snort coke off her tits. that's all our friendship is about, anyways. coke. and tits. ;-)

the management said...

Wait, are Good Charlotte whiny-ass clowns or whiny ass clowns? If it's the latter, what's an "ass clown?" It sounds funny as hell, whatever it is.

Anonymous said...

you know, linking that guy/girl is just giving them the attention they sadly need/want. i hope they realize how lame it is to just sit around trashing people all day. some people are so sad.

Hehe, I also found it funny in the newyorkdoll bash, the use of "annoying-ass margins" ... ass margins are almost as funny as ass clowns :D

G3K said...

PS - The new Good Charlotte record is really fucking good.Sarah, I know we're not that well-acquainted... but this is seriously a huge schism in our blog-reading relationship. Or, um, the my-reading-of-your-blog relationship.

Think about it. GOOD fucking CHARLOTTE. How is this possible? Do you know them? Are you, like, good buds? Do you hang out with Joel, Benji & Hilary on weekends? Can't you at least rub off some of your hot-hipster self on them so they start writing good lyrics and stop dressing like wanna-be Juggalos?

I mean, I will admit that the totally unexpected breakdown in "Lifestyles..." was pretty sweet, at least on big speakers at that one girl's prom. (stop for wince at bad memories) And they've got hell of production behind them. But these guys fucking redefine the word inane.Their new album had better make my top-ten list or your credi(t)bility rating is going down hardcore. I swear you will have bill collectors at your door for your very sanity. Before your next post title is HILARY: THE GIRL REALLY CAN ROCK! I really have to urge you to stop this.

Much love,

G3K aka Sam

She works for Spin magazine. She's just trying to do her job: selling mainstream horseshit to scenesters.

Anonymous said...

She's not shitting about that Good Charlotte record--despite it's absolutely horrendous lead single and pretentious title, it's really, really fucking good. Before hearing it, I would have sucked a cock on the Golden Gate Bridge before listening to a GC record, but now it looks like I'll have to moisten my lips and blow.

For that Good Charlotte comment I will now call you Ultragirlie. Please retract and get the grrrl back.

Lets be honest, they are the worst band ever.

I'd be more impressed if people actually wrote their real names instead of posting and/or blogging anonymously.

Watch this:

See how easy that was?

who gives a fuck if people use their names? you don't fucking know me anyways and you never will. don't confuse this bs internet bantor for real human interaction. yea can call me "jesus" if it makes you feel better.

The facts are that you are a producer and he is nothing. He's no different than someone who trolls message boards all day long picking fights or spamming. Who cares what he has to say? It's all so he could stroke his own ego back and he should just be ignored. He doesn't have site stats up, he won't allow anonymous comments, won't tell his name, and you let this guy come into your house and insult you? he's a pussy. You are too for sucking him off after he rips you apart.

Better to be a "twatface" than a pussy who insults strangers on the internet.

Sarah, can you go back to using Haloscan for your comments? It's impossible to sign into Blogger, hence, making it really easy for this sort of anonymous asshattery in your Comment box.

ok raised by bees --why do you care if someone puts up a lame "fake" name instead of posting anonymously? again you don't know these people, and they don't know you. all of these postings are pretty anonymous in my mind. people are insulting you becasue you are annoying --don't give people reason to insult and they won't. these stupid comment boards are just a way for people to cut the crap and say what they really feel like saying. time to move on.

Anonymous said...

Why's Raised By Bees so weird about anonymous comments? Think about it: whether I write "Sara is an utter cunt" or "Sara is the greatest human ever" they both mean the same thing. Nothing at all. They're just words from a stranger about a stranger. Who cares what people who don't know you think about you? Is that REALLY your biggest problem? Grow up.

Anonymous said...

Wow, I think Sara/Raised by Bees just wishes there was an h on the end of her name, so she could be *just like* her fav grrrl.
Or maybe she wants to be the next to be slandered?

Laurent said...

Sarah--

Thanks for telling everyone about my previous anti-blog work. Now I have to apologize to a bunch of people. Why not also reveal my Social Security number and my credit card details while you're at it?

Yeah, I agree: Good Charlotte = Bad Music. I'll never forgive them for butchering an OMD song, even if it was OMD's worst.

Everyone else better lay off Sara Raised By Bees, too. I like her, even if she hates my guts.

"WWAAAAAHH :( don't be mean to my cyber friend sara raised by bees! :( "
i think it's so funny how this little blog clique gets so sensitive about comments about their little friends. are you guys all still in high-school? is blogging your source of importance?

Anonymous said...

you are right....posting your name means nothing in the internet world, because this is not real human interaction. which brings me to my point of why sarah and her blogger dork friends are so silly:

you use the internet to try and prove how cool you are. you can't do it in person...it just doesn't work (perhaps because you are not really cool and you certainly do not look cool).

did anyone here ever learn about interpersonal communication and how people use their "tapes" to make them seem how they want to be seen? sarah is a prime example of it. she says the same shit over and over again, trying to convince readers what a cool "indie rocker chick" that she is.

at one point, i thought she was a nice, smart girl...but now i realize that she is an uneducated wannabe, trying to be underground, when she is really living in a celebrity billboard, lava lamp, pepsi drinking, US Weekly reading, H&M/black eyeliner from the mall wearing world.

you know nothing about good music, surely nothing about good art, but you do know a bunch of names, just look how many friends you have on your friendster profile...oh my!

Laurent said...

If you don't like, then don't read it. Focus on your boring day job instead. Your boss pays you good money not to goof off. Stop reading blogs you hate and be productive.

Anonymous said...

whooooa anonymous cowboy. though there is some truth to what you've said --you've gone too far. it's just a blog man --the fact that sarah's blog has gotten under your skin so badly has made you the loser, not her. if you don't like it -don't read it. it is agreed that most bloggers are egomaniacs --but it's sad that it upsets you so much. and you can't diss on H&M, you clearly don't have much of a clue. all of us, including myself spend way too much time on the internet.

Sara without an H again:

First of all, I live in Philadelphia. I have a big giant life (and probably better social skills than many of you) outside the internet that I share with people who give a shit and most important, don't insult other people to make themselves look better. I'm old and tired and have very little patience these days.

Like many other blogs/websites/livejournals (some friends, others just writers I enjoy), I pass through here and comment when I feel like it. It's definitely not "cool" to live here (precisely why I like it so much) and no one cares about blogs around here, which is fine by me. My blog is merely an extension of my professional writing life that I do without any care for an editor or an audience, besides my ten friends who might read it. Most of the time, I write about my crappy record store job and the rudeness of the general public.

I don't know Ultra at all, or probably any of you. Therefore, I can't say that I actually hate any of you, except for the anonymous poster who pretended to post as me ("I hate you all"). Gee, how clever. Thanks for teaching me such a valuable lesson about daring to use my real name.

Because I write and promote for a living, I have no problem attaching my name to my opinions and being responsible (and sometimes irresponsible) for them. Even if you don't write for a living (a fairly thankless way to pay the rent, unless you're lucky enough to be Sarah), it's rather cowardly to write anonymously, especially taking on really easy targets like Sarah and SPIN magazine. I don't love SPIN either, but I sometimes stick up for my namesake with an "h" because I've been through some similar stuff, on a much smaller scale, of course. A lot of what I read here tastes very much like Philadelphia Haterade, and again, I just have to spit it out and right back at you.

The point is, I wonder if any of you could take that much scrutiny? Probably not. How many of you would write such vicious shit if we all knew who you were? How many of you would walk right up to Sarah and say it to her face? Or me, who you know nothing about? Very few, I'd imagine. Half of you are probably afraid of girls.

And Brother Lawrence, I can't hate you even if you are voting for Bush. (Okay, maybe I could ;) You seem to care for your sister a lot and strangely resemble one of my late '90s ex-boyfriends. He's not a Republican though.
