HOW I MADE MY MILLIONS

If you will direct your eyes to the right of the screen, you'll notice that there is a new opportunity for people to advertise on my blog. Now you might be thinking "why the fuck would you do this?" and i would like to reply with "why the fuck not?" It's kind of like when a movie has someone drinking from a coke can instead of a generic brand one.

So if you want people to read your blog or something, buy a cheap ad and your link will appear. Brian did it with his blog, as you can see if you click on his name.

Tackiness aside, Dan Marcus suggested I get a seeing eye mini horse. I should get one for my shih-tzu!

OK, i'm carbo loading for the 25 hour fast that's about to happen. Not only will I be fasting, but I'll also be away from all forms of communication. Crazy!

what a sellout

Raised By Bees said...

Sellout? I think it depends on what kind of ads she takes. If she's helping out teeny tiny bands get the word out about shows who can't afford publicists, I see no harm. I actually considered posting an ad for my no-profit booking agency here for that very reason.

If Sarah actually likes the stuff that gets advertised, what's the difference? Much of what's on here is glorified advertising for bands, and if not for Sarah, I wouldn't have discovered the Ooh La La's, who I like because of my preference for cool female singers/players. The thing is, in a lot of my favorite magazines like Bust or Venus, the ads are just as good as the articles. The "selling out" part is when the ads dictate content, which his happening in gray, insidious ways in places much bigger than Sarah's blog. I wonder how thin that line is at Sarah's place of employment...

can muslim's do the yum kippor and delete their sins?

those seeing eye animals are prone to illness... they catch colds then get a little horse
DOH

Laurent said...

That depends what you've done in Taksim Square. I don't think anyone can delete those sins after enough raki.
