Gimcrack Spotted!

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging, Gimcrackery on 06. Feb, 2008 | 6 Comments

We are really exploding here at GimMisc Industries. Not only has our LOLheads™ division been diversifying with very rare images of Coach Belichick (I gave them all raises to $3.25 an hour – they still have to provide their own equipment, though), but our brand new marketing & advertising department has launched! So far, GimMisc [...]

Why Do Bloggers Brag?

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging, Theory & Philosophy on 15. Jan, 2008 | 18 Comments

This one’s going to get me into trouble. Maybe that means it’s a good post. Or maybe it means I shouldn’t write it. Too late. I already made that collage of blog logos. I have a question: why do some bloggers feel the need to brag about their lives? OK, now let me backpedal 20 [...]

How To (Re)Name Your Blog

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging on 02. Nov, 2007 | 15 Comments

Finally, after a day of waiting, B has unveiled its new name: The Gimcrack Miscellany You wish you would’ve thought of that, don’t you. Why am I not surprised. I have received a bit of resistance to the rename, and it’s because of the strong nostalgic ties we all have to the old B4 game, [...]

New Blog Title Coming Soon

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging on 01. Nov, 2007 | 8 Comments

WTF was I thinking? I don’t think I had planned on taking my blog seriously. Now i regret the name because it’s not descriptive enough. The trouble is, the title “B” permeates my blog, especially throughout my Berating system. I’m going to have to be pretty clever in naming my blog so as to stay [...]

Jonathan Wey is writing again. That’s all you need to know. Not since Dragons Buried on High have we been privileged with such an uninhibited glimpse into such a unique mind. He is a MUCH better writer than I (I’m talking LITS here) and you can tell that he meticulously prepares each and every post. [...]

A New Blogroll Link

Check out my coworker Brad’s blog. I’m hoping that somehow my wife will somehow accidentally stumble upon my blog, somehow come across this blog post somehow, somehow happen to click the link to Brad’s blog somehow, and somehow accidentally coincidentally scroll down and see the pictures of his beagle “Bella”, and then somehow want to [...]

My Brother Turned Into One of the Great Writers of Our Time

I have to admit, I was surprised by how well my bro logged his adventures with a window salesman. I know he speaks for all people, anywhere, ever, in the history of the world, who have ever dealt with any kind of salesman, ever created, when he describes the utter agony of dealing with this [...]

My Blog Exploded Into A Billion Pieces

Posted by The Gimcracker in Blogging on 05. Jun, 2007 | 8 Comments

But don’t worry, it’s back up now – minus a few of my most recent posts (namely the one about the seatbelt checkpoints). What happened? I host my own blog, which means my database is separate from the WordPress blog sea. So, if I lose my database I’m SOL. Guess what – I lost my [...]

In other words, thanks for the good word Arthur. Since the shout-out, my Technorati rating has skyrocketed to 2,042,882, and my authority has been boosted to 2! YES! If you don’t already, you should read Life In The Shadows. The dude has an English degree. Enough said. Plus he’s funny and humble and posts on [...]
