Very rarely on the blog do we do something fun for the sake of living. Day in and day out it may appear that we are consumed with our jobs, or games, or real life events, and one of the the little pieces that we miss in life is just having fun.
To bring some of that element back, while retaining my own sanity, I am going to start a new tradition where the week after Thanksgiving is called “Unofficial Screw You Week”.
How does it work? It’s simple. Is there a person or some website that pisses you off? Maybe a co-worker that you wish you could just knee in the groin because they are so annoying? Maybe you have a blog and you wish you could just disappear but you know you can’t because you depend on it for money, or whatever?
During this week, I am giving you permission to just vent. Maybe you got the guts to send an email to your best friend and tell them to stop hitting on your sister because it makes you sick. Maybe there is a youtube user on your list you gladly want to say “Screw off mate”.
Of course in reality, we know that if you were bold enough to do any of this for real, the consequences could be dire. If you were to do any of these tasks, we want to hear about it and your story and what you did.
You have one week to basically tell someone to screw off, and if you did it, we want to hear how it made you feel.
If you are unable to do it for personal reasons, you are more than welcomed to leave a comment and tell us here how it would make you feel if you could tell that one person how great it would be if you told them off in their face!
The event starts on Sunday, November 29th through end of day Saturday, December 5th. On Sunday December 6th, I will post a thread for you guys to tell us what you did in the “Screw You” week, or a summary of what users have done. If you are ashamed to post your story here, you can email it to me at versatileninja [at yahoo [dot] com and I will summarize it while keeping you anonymous.
Am I going to participate? Oh hell yes. Don’t I care its going to hurt my image? Not anymore. I have been through hell and back, and I am willing to tell someone off (in an appropriate manner of course). Let the screwing begin! (ah you sickos!)
If anyone is looking for an invite to this great site visit the link at the bottom of this post. It’ll link you to my google docs , which asks for your email, then I’ll send you an invite immediately. Join in on the fun at Lockerz to get Free prizes. See you on Lockerz.com!!
What exactly is Lockerz all about?
Lockerz is the place to go to buy the coolest stuff , watch exclusive video, discover new music, play the hottest games, hang out with your friends – and get rewarded for just about EVERYTHING you do on the site. One other thing you’ll love about Lockerz are PTZ (or “points”). PTZ are Lockerz’ currency that you earn whenever you buy, watch, play, share, invite friends, or even just show up on Lockerz. Redeem PTZ at the PTZ Place for great prizes such as computers to video games and all other electronics goodies.
So how exactly do you get points?
Well to get points or “PTZ” as lockerz likes to call them all you need to do is log in everyday for your daily 2 points and answer a “Daily” question. These questions are usually simple yes or no answers such as do you have a tatoo, or do you like rock and roll or rap music. It’s really quite simple to build up points quickly. I’ve been a member for around a month now and already have over 100 points which I can redeem for a video game or something else but more on that below.
After reading the lack of comments yesterday on the TiT post, I decided to ponder about my journey in search of the next TUG event. Wait, what is a TUG event? I know some of you guys have some sick minds out there, as I’m sure TUG could refer to a lot of things like a boat, tug of war, pulling on something, and etc. 🙂
My usage of TUG here is an acronym for The Under Ground, hence the next The Underground Event for writing here on the blog.
Yesterday I thought more about the “Life of a Pirate” series, and decided that it was too forward. There is a lot of good knowledge out there from honest people who are not pirates, and I did not want to proceed with the image that pirates are evil/good and that I should totally expose the pirate scene apart.
Plus, this blog is not meant as a forum for piracy either and I don’t want to be seen as that too. In efforts to maintain the clean blog image, I have decided to move onto something that I can live with.
Welcome to what could very well be the “STD Stories”, where STD is Versatile1 acronymn for “Savvy Tech Dude” (or Dudette depending on article content). I love puns, what can I say.
Breakdown of STD Stories:
- STD stories will try to be posted once a week, but not guaranteed. Expect it to appear out of nowhere, just like real life STDs. 🙂
- STD stories are real stories about technology and how it is twisted to fit into someone’s life for logical or illogical purposes.
- STD stories may dwell on underground material, but is not meant to be strictly related to it.
- STD stories are meant to be written by The Underground Staff, but the community is highly encouraged to contribute via posts or offline interviews with Versatile1.
- STD stories can either be fictional or truth, and the validity of the story is left up to the writer and for the audience to decide for themselves.
- STD stories are laid-back, and could be a story, but doesn’t have to be. A tutorial could be thought of as a “story” too in some regards.
I’m sure the list could go on and on. Does it sound exciting? It does to me. We’ll see. As time goes on, you will see what the flavor of articles is going to be. Good times!
