Unfuckingbelievable. Who woulda thought this thing would last past the free trial at Blogharbor? Not me. Not my then-wife, but only (partially) because i never told her about it.
Now we’re a business and a media empire (as much as a blastocyst is a president or Justin Bieber
can spell is an insightful curator of the human condition).
And yet, I missed the anniversary. It began February 16, 2004.
Missing it may be because we had two weeks of, uh, revised domestic scheduling, leading to lots of IRL pursuits and frolics. And late hours of Warcrack. And time with my IRL children. And way too many carbs.
The very first post, as I recall, was “I need to sneeze.” [Ed.: Second, according to our fact checkers. We killed that long ago, but the first first one is still here, albeit redated.] We were Gene Simmons before Gene Simmons was Gene Simmons and before a Twitter(er) ever twatted.

That was on “Everybody and the Girl,” which I meant to call “Everybody and their dog” after some line in a movie. No, it was not intentionally porn, although we did repost porn for a little while.
Why porn? Because we could! Woo hoo intertubes!!!
Because that name was stupid, we renamed it Brain Farts on Acid. More accurate, except for the acid part. Then, I remembered a letter I got from before there was a site. One last name change and a pricey domain later and here we’ve been ever since.
