My fragile and child-like ego, forever insecure and paranoid, has an insatiable appetite for stuff like this. Although, I’m not sure that feeding it is a particularly wise move. It’s probably a lot like feeding gremlins after midnight. I’m cute and funny now, but just wait until I think I’m better than the rest of you. You have not yet learned the meaning of insufferable.
I’m not sure why so many people are linking to DM of the Rings all of a sudden. Has it gotten funnier recently? The sad truth is that I can’t tell. At the start I’ll have some little gem of an idea that makes me smile, but by the time I upload the final result I’ve re-arranged it a dozen times and worded the thing a hundred different ways. I’m just numb to it.
So I don’t know what the sudden interest in the thing is all about. I’ve gotten more links since Tuesday than I have in the past month. Go figure.
The other thing worth noting is that humorous video I posted the other day had almost 6,000 views this morning. If that number is correct, then it pretty much dwarfs the traffic I get here at Twenty-Sided. Crazy.
UPDATE: The next morning. Thirty thousand views. That’s just strange. It’s not like this video is sitting on the front page. Most of those 30k visits were from people digging around in search results and finding the thing more or less by accident.
