ooh ooh ooh: first!
This reminds me of a book by William Makepeace Thackeray called The Book of Snobs. I think he defines "snob" as someone who admires mean things (which is kind of a crap definition), but he also has tons of different kind of snobs. Respectable snobs, city snobs, dining out snobs, literary snobs, country snobs, club snobs: they're all in there. So the real question is: what kind of snob is Joe? I would hyperlink the book, but I don't know how.And I guess it's pretty snobby to quote someone named William Makepeace Thackeray, isn't it?Yeah, I thought about it for a minute: it's definitely snobby. No need to poll it.
Adam, first of all, to creat a hyperlink, you type Without the Quotation marks) Type What You Want Us To See As The HyperlinkSecond, yes, you're right, anyone who knows so much about snobs is obviously the REAL snob here.
Okay, whoops, in trying to tell you how to create a hyperlink, I accidentally created a bum hyperlink. Let me try this again.type one of these types of brackets: <and then (without any space) type:a href="insert your web address here"and then (without any space) type one of these types of brackets:>and then type what you want to appear as your hyperlinkand then put this funal code: < / a >But without those spaces.And voila, you're done. (If this makes any sense whatsoever.) Adam, let's see you make a hyperlink in your next comment, because I want to know if I was able to teach you how to make one, or if I failed miserably.
make extra money now
HOWL! Great link right above this post! Heeeeeeee!
Scat I just saw Keith on TV!!!
i'm sleepy. but i'm glad joe's snobbery (heehehh, i love brutalizing the english language) has come to the forefront.cherio and nighty night.
good lord.snobbery is actually an english word documented in dictionaries.that's a first for me. using a word that i assume is wrong but is actually right.oh, and i vote for adam being a snob. because men who have that many degrees/majors/pieces of paper indicating they are smart... have got to be.joe, however is the original snob.wow, it's really fun to be this narcisstic (crossing my fingers that I spelt this wrong) before going to sleep.nightie night for realz.
i am so fucking excited that you taught to hyperlink on your blog! i've always wanted to know that. for a good time clicknow, how do you post pictures?i'm a little embarrassed to ask. be gentle with me.
oooh, and do another poll please! i love them so!
1. I giggled all night after seeing this poll. 2. I was not the one who voted for "I'm Joe Chandler and I'm too much of a snob for this poll"
OK, here goes: Joe.
are you an indie music snob?
The "A" in Adam stand for Amazing.
Okay, first of all, you guys are all so fucking cool. (2) ANONYMOUS: I love you. (And I really would like to make extra money now, so if you could tell me how that's really possibly through blogger, I'm all ears.)(3) Bonnie, I KNOW. Great link, right?(4) Christy, dammit! I missed Keith's episode!! Fuck. (5) Uma, your English skillz are improving! I'm proud of my Urp.(6) Aimie, very good job with posting your first hyperlink. I love that people are testing their hyperlink posting skillz. I also like using the letter "z" instead of the letter "s" whenever I can. Oh, and to answer your question, I don't know how one would post a picture in a comment (I don't think that's possible actually, other than the "profile" pictures you see in the top right corner of comments, and to do that you need to have an account with blogger, which is easy enough to set up) but when I'm posting pictures on my blog, I just hit the "post a picture" button. It's eazy cheezy.(7) Dear Joe Chandler, I didn't vote for "I'm Joe...(etc.)" either! There must be ANOTHER joe chandler in the house! (No--there can be no other Joe Chandler. The second I typed that, I realized it could not be so.) I'm glad my poll made you giggle. (Hmmm, that sentence sounds so wrong.)(8) Adam, I agree with Joe, you do stand for Amazing. That wikepedia page rules. (9) Angela, nize skillz with the hyperlinkz too! (Joe--you should clink on Angela's link, because it'll tell you if you really are a music snob or not and we can know once and for all) (clink on Angela's link sounds almost as bad as that laughing at my poll sentence)
Just to clarify I voted 'Yes' in this poll. I'm not the 2nd Joe Chandler.
I'm the 2nd Joe Chandler. That's just the answer that made me giggle the most.Sorry for any confusion.
And I'm not the only one.
This poll allows you to vote once every day, so who knows...maybe in a year from now, we'll come back to this poll and see that there are, like, 365 Joe Chandlers. (It's good to dream big.)
wow. adam. wow.
I agree with Uma.
If anybody that reads this blog ever becomes obscenely famous, please please please name your child "Makepeace". Or "Thackeray".
angela, i don't understand. please explain.
Urp, please refer to comment #3.
i knew i was going to look like a fool for asking that question. so much for my brief rise in intellect.oh and erp, i'm sad MAP finds us boring.
fuckity fuck fuck.....PAM PAM PAM
that makes me sad, too.
MAP doesn't really find us boring. She's just been really busy with work and when I asked her if she'd read my blog lately, she was like, "there's too many comments, I can't read through all of them," and then I was like, "you are SUCH a fucking punk-ass." And then she was like, "whatever, I have work to do," and then I was like, "get over yourself! Comment!" And then she did, basically because I forced her to, but she only skimmed our comments, she didn't really read them, and her calling them "boring" was just her being a punk-ass in the extreme.You know?
Urp, she's both PAM and MAP, it's all good!PAM = Punk-Ass MomandMAP = Mom-Ass Punk
Christy, don't be sad, read my comment explanation about PAM a couple of comments above.
I can't remember when or where it was, but BonBon coined PAM's second nickname as MAP a while back.
i'm still sad.
She still loves us. She will read our comments and love them. I will make her. Just later. Does that make you happy?
I don't know.It's just that PAM calling us boring feels kind of like Simon Cowell saying we should be singing in a hotel lounge by the highway.
It's even worse when Simon Cowell's your mom! What I mean is, imagine how I feel...because she didn't just call the comment thread boring, but she called the actual post boring as well.
Her comment just says, "I think this whole string of comments is really boring."I just thought of a room full of supermodels all throwing temper tantrums and pulling their hair out and crying demonic-like while making contorted faces,"tell me I'm PRETTY! tell me I'M PRETTY! TELL ME I'M PRETTY!"that is *so* who we are right now. we are great.
But SHE DIDN'T EVEN READ ANY OF THE COMMENTS, that's how much of a punk-ass she is. I had to tell her to scroll down and find the list of movies and to cut and paste that and fill it out. Seriously. She's just busy. We're not really boring. We ARE great.
Clink here to meet the other Joe Chandler
Oh my. I fucked up bigtime. Actually, what I really, honestly meant, was that Erik's blogpost about the movies bored me. But he's right, I just didn't have time to read and follow this whole train of thought because I was overwhelmed with work, so I impulsively dismissed the whole thing, not realizing that it would feel like I was dismissing the wonderful people who had written the comments.Erik was sweet to defend me and it's true, I do have a name to live up to. But is it worth all the angst I caused? Is it worth one second of self-doubt from people who should never be plagued with self-doubt? Nope.Please for give the PAM for her lack of sensitivity.I hope those who were taken aback by my earlier comment find this comment deeply boring. And I hope they will say so.PAM
Uma, that other Joe Chandler is in charge of a whole slew of Chandlers!
Hey PAM, "for give" should be one word.Love,your son
Also, to for give is even better than to forgive.It's especially better than to after give.PAM
Erik,You beat me by 16 seconds. Rats!PAM
That's funny, we're both editing your comment at the same time.
now that there is a new post i'd like to thank the blog for focusing on me for a 24 hour period. it stroked my ego to a ridiculous degree.
The blog says "you're welcome." And the blog would like to point out that 26 votes were cast in the "Is Joe Chandler a snob or not" poll, and while the poll will remain alive as long as the internet (and this blog) exists, the current results are: --13 people are essentially Beavis and Butthead and voted for "I just said poll"--2 people named Joe Chandler are too snobby to bother to vote--2 people named Joe Cahndler apparently don't want to rock any boats and are obstaining from the vote--2 people think that Joe Chandler is NOT a snob--and 7 people think that Joe Chandler is a snobTherefore, Joe Chandler is a snob.(results from the poll are not scientific and may be skewed by the fact that people could vote once every 24 hours) (however, the poll has only been active for about 26 hours, so I don't know how many people voted twice) (like I did)
PAM,Only if "by people who should never be plagued with self-doubt" you mean me.And I just have to say, I just got back from a very booze-oriented round of Tuesdays @ 9 and I have to say that however many people there might be who think Joe Chandler is a snob, there is at least always one more who wants to lay me when I'm drunk.(and Erik, please do not let it go unnoticed, I am commenting on your blog, while drunk, and backspacing as many times as necessary while doing so to be correct, before bed, which is many (if any of that makes any sense)xoxo
Oh and by the way PAM, you really just bored me to death. Put me to sleep. What have you.
Christy, I'm mad I wasn't at Tuesdays getting drunk with you. I wouldn't have wanted to lay you. Well, you DO kinda look like Michael J. Fox, so maybe I would have. Drunk commenting...is that the new drunk dialing?
Maybe it is the new drunk dialing.How am I still awake enough to be responding? This is taking much drunk backspacing effort.I missed you!!! The writing was so fucking bad (shhh). And the hitting on (me), too. Bad. I just told every guy what their name meant according to my bad date name cult, and they were all like, it's true. We know. (Adam and David)And I *do* fucking kind of look like Michael J. Fox. So maybe you would have.You have to admit though, for a drunk I'm a pretty fucking conscientious editor.
You saw the little "Booze and Blogging Don't Mix" part of my blog last week, no?Case. In. Point.
erik, i am going to have to respectfully discontinue reading your blog if you insist on constantly feeding joe chandler's ego. his head is big enough as it is.
Christy, I will be there next week!
(Bonnie, I don't think I've ever written a blog entry drunk, but now I kinda want to try it, even though I think you're probably right, boozin' and bloggin' don't mix.)
Marie, I want to keep you as a reader, so I will try not to talk about Joe Chandler on my blog for at least the next couple of days. And then we'll take it from there. Does that work?
They really don't mix. I swear I was mistyping letters at about a 10 to 1 rate with getting the actual letter on the first try. It was hard work.
deal. i can't stay mad at you, erik...
Marie, I'm glad that we got through that.
Heh heh...You said poll...And it made everyone giggle!
True story: When we were writing the breakdown for "The Masquerade" (which went out today--woo!), the director said, "he's really a punkass. Can we put that in the breakdown?"I could not STOP laughing.And how could I EVER begin to explain?Man, I'm lucky people find my weirdly self charming.
