The Most Viewed Video Ever on YouTube

You know, I’m not sure what I would have guessed if someone had asked me what I thought the most viewed video ever on YouTube was going to be. However, this certainly wouldn’t have been it. The Evolution of Dance is funny, yes, but … I’m not sure if I would have stuck it out long enough to be entertained if I hadn’t known ahead of time it was the most watched thing on YouTube, ever:

I Sux, You Sux, All Sux dot Com!

What’s new, what’s new … well, OneMansBlog is getting close to John’s goal of 1,000 subscribers. The other John is still going strong an I may be able to beg, borrow or steal some of his mad design skillz. You gotta admire Tamar for sticking to her guns and sticking it to the man. Her posts are truly worth of this site, but I guess that’s not saying much :P

I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks the Sarah Silverman Show is just plain great. The industrious Mu has created a cool resource for Stumblers. I’ve become completely addicted to TreeHugger when I’m not on WebUrbanist. If you’re a blogger and you haven’t signed up for Romlet and/or Peopleized I’m telling you: you’re missing out!

I’ve been debating writing an intro-to-Digg article for Diggn00bs pointing out some of the veteran Diggers by ‘niche’ … think that could be an interesting read, but I’m sure to miss (an therefore piss off) some Digger or another. I’ve also been toying with writing a post about how this is the most important page on Believe it or not, that’s where the big decisions are made, which I’ll be sure to explain at some point ;) Speaking of Digg, Verge and I got a rather entertaining mention on TheDrillDown recently, though we still plan to hijack the show entirely soon.

Now for some strict entertainment. Here are some beautiful time lapse photographs and videos which should go niceley with a side of other cool art in motion. You can always count on the Best of Craiglist to provide things like the survival of the fittest M&Ms, just like you can always count on religious fanatics to barricade themselves in caves until the world ends. However, more than all of the above, you can rely on WallStreetFighter to provide you with a dose of crass offbeat humor.

Desperate for Cash? At Least You’re Not These Guys!

Man … over at DigitalPoint people are clamoring over fifty cents. How freaking weird is that? Here’s the link … it’s pretty hilarious but kind of sad. At the other extreme, the Digg effect supposedly cost DigitalPoint $100,000 … I find that rather hard to believe.

Crackheads on Halloween – No, For Real!

OK, so, while my housemates went out Christmas caroling as zombies (fairly hilarious!) I stayed at home to take care of some stuff and hand out candy. Well, exactly one person came to the door while I was home. Yes, as the headline suggests, it was a crackhead. A young guy in his early twenties wearing dark pants and a hoody (with the hood up) came up with a nondescript paper grocery bag. He said “trick or sweet” which made, of course, no sense. I was a little worried to turn my back on the door and grab the bag of Jolly Ranchers but I figured if I was going to die it might as well be under strange circumstances. Anyway, I threw in a handful, fairly speachless, and bid him a good evening. I wonder how many other people in the neighborhood he confused and entertained.

Linkalicious Love for Wednesdayz

Check out the incredible human slinky!

Possibly the only thing cooler than giants roaming the streets would be the tiny people sitting on the sidewalks … I think this could be a recipe for disaster!

I completely disagree with the assertion that Disassociated is crap, though fully appreciate the fact that the author of Disassociated himself was the one who said it! WallStreetFighter, however, IS crap … but it is incredibly entertaining, addictive and awesome crap! J/k much love to Shane!

I completely agree that the new Digg sux and concur with the many negative community reactions, and wish I had more time to spare for The Drill Down.

Up-and-coming social media, news and blogging sites of the week: Popupon, Peopleized, Picurls and Romlet. And for general lifehackery: LifeLearningToday.

Yes, these might be the coolest toilets I have ever seen. And yes, I am strange and also a fan of urban exploration pictures. Speaking of which, if you haven’t seen these I recommend checking out these sets of 7 Abandoned, Deserted, Underground and Underwater Wonders of the World.

Finally, thanks as always to Mike, Jeff and Kris who help keep this show and others on the road, not to mention John who is the (One) Man.

Heading to DC (and Amending my Blog Posts)

No, the above things aren’t actually related. Anyway, heading to DC for a bit of a break and such. Big deadlines coming up, stress building, etc… of course now I find out I might also have to do some work while there to stay caught up! Such is life. Rant. It may be time for another rant soon. Meanwhile, happy Wednesday!

The Reader’s Choice Awards – Restickified!

After six months, it seems like a good time to do a ‘best of’ post for this site. Diggin through my Google Analytics account I was actually surprised at what turned out to be some of my top content. Instead of trying to pick out what I think is the best stuff on here, I left it up to the numbers. Without further ado, here are the most popular posts from the last half-year on All Sux dot Com:

(7) Link lists have always been a crowd-pleaser, and are a great way to brain-dump cool stuff I find online.

(6) Apparently, a great deal of people approved of my suggestion that we use that horrible Chocolate Rain video in place of other forms of torture.

(5) Some semi-offtopic posts actually do pretty well, go figure. My comparison of three sites on which to write and make money was fairly popular.

(4) They say a pictures is worth a thousand words. Sadly, this picture turned out to represent thousands of lives.

(3) I admit I occassionally play fun little SEO (Search Engine Optimization) games, particularly if I want to outrank a scammy site (like or an article I disagree with. This was one of those cases.

(2) One of my personal favorites, this rant about Conservapedia was picked up by which almost crashed this site, sending thousands of hits per hour!

(1) Sometimes simplicity is the best policy. Believe it or not, coming in at over 15,000 views, this image which requires no explanation is the most-viewed content of all time on All Sux dot Com!

I think my biggest shock in looking all of these up was the fact that most of my old content, which I remember thinking ‘wow, that got a lot of hits!’ is near the top of the pile. I guess I’m getting used to all the additional traffic, and old posts which got hundreds of hits seem small by comparison. Now I barely notice unless a post hits at least 5K (not on this site, but on other sites I write for) … am I getting jaded?

Today’s Theme: Fun with Photography

I’d seen this before, but Stumbled Upon it again today: how to improve your photographs with classic art. I have to say the results are downright amazing and it’s a pretty simple Photoshop process. Speaking of photography, here are some tips for how to photograph a fireworks display. Keeping with the theme, sort of, here are some sad but gripping images from Chernobyl and photos of amazing photographic ‘illusions’ produced by chalked and painted sidewalk art. If I ever go idle forever, I really hope I do something like this with my domain!
