OK crisis averted, problem solved. I think I have a way for everyone to get happy and for no one to get hurt. (insert trumpet fanfare here)
Introducing the latest installment to the freakylinks family, the AMATEUR HOUR tag.
That's right. Finally the perfect place to put these anonymous e-mails of dogs barking backwards and trees that spontaneously form the face of Woodrow Wilson. E-mail them all to me and I'll put them up, the only difference is a little tag at the start of the article that informs the public that this item has not been tested by me with my patented "Derek-Barnes-Truth-Finder." I'll put it up but it gets a disclaimer.
Got a video of grandma barfing up pea soup and don't know if it's paranormal or just a case of indigestion? Well send it in and we'll let the group decide. Of course in order to get your stuff uploaded to the site you have to sign a form which gives me all rights to it. Funny how that works, ain't it?
Yes, yes, I know how happy this makes you all. We can all be one big happy dysfunctional family again. So if you haven't seen the first 2 files that caused all the uproar go over to our new little neighborhood here in freakyland and check 'em out.
In other exciting news on the home front, my friend Bently is flying me to LA for his wedding tomorrow. Ain't that nice of him? I told him that if I ever get married I'll return the favor. He just laughed and laughed at that. Guess he don't figure me as the marrying type.
Bently and I roomed together for a short while when we were young and were both convinced we were God's gift to the skateboard. Times changed, (read that as "We both got too old") and now he's a respectable something or other out in the city of angels.
I of course am a respectable something or other here on your computer screen. Ain't life a kick in the head?
