Waxing Philosophical about Browsings, Work, and Love

PoddedMeat StuffThe first and second weeks ratings are in for PoddedMeat. If it were two years ago, and it were the Mark and Darrell Show, I’d be absolutely elated – our numbers exceeded any ratings I’ve ever recieved on RantRadio, AKA, and the...

Major Personal/Professional Issues

Well, I’ll just come out and say it. I fired Darrell today. It’s been a mighty stressful week, things were tightly scheduled, and if all the cogs weren’t in exactly the right place, the whole structure (much like a jenga puzzle) would come tumbling...

Mark Lives

I just got a call from Mark. Apparently, south Florida is indeed a wasteland, as he was calling me from the only working pay phone he could find. He does have a little money and food for a couple days, but donations are still appreciated. Right now, he needs to find a...

I'm outta here folks

Well, guys, this is my last post until I get back from the Bahamas.  Next week is guest week… we’re going to have a host of great bloggers to come in and fill your week with Rizzny goodness.  All Blip tech support requests will be...

A little bit of everything before I get back to work

If you emailed me between about 4:00 PM and 5:30 PM yesterday, I need you to email me again, as I had a minor workstation crash that I spent the better part of the evening recovering from. In other news, I’m getting pretty excited about my upcoming...

Migratory patterns of soccerballs and spaceships.

Wow, I’m dragging butt today – so so so friggin’ tired.  I did indeed make it to the Serenity pre-screening two nights ago. I’ll post a bit of a review below.  I also figured out why my traffic has been kicking so much butt...

I'm doing my part: katrinalostandfound.org

Given that I’m pulling my hair out on this damn blip migration, I’m taking a break for a couple days to work on what’s turning out to be a community project called katrinalostandfound.org – it’s a public database of people displaced...

MTV Video Music Awards and AngryShirts

I’m off to South Beach now.  Apparently the parties are back on again, and we’re going to go cover them for Blip. Expect interviews, pictures, and video of the following people:Carmen Electra, Kanye West, Paris Hilton, Hillary Duff, Haylie Duff,...

Blip Kernel Update Notice

BlipMedia Profile Updates, and HTTP Uploads are temporarily suspended while we perform some necessary shifts in the way we update profiles.  The downtime is expected to last no longer than a few hours.  All files uploaded and changes made will be saved, but...

Am I Famous?

I don’t normally break character like this (by breaking character, I mean putting aside my school-bus sized ego), but I’ve got to ask this question of the masses who are now reading my blog and subscribing to my discussion group (and the few people who...

USA Statistics * Facts to Ponder

Hat tip to the Libertarian Party of Broward group list: Facts to Ponder:(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.* Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept...

BlipUpdate: Directory Service Now Available!

I’m going to send out an email to all the users once it’s fully functional, but I’ve got to turn in tonight – I’ve been doing what I’ve been doing too long to think right anymore. The upshot is this, though: everyone’s...

Snap Back to Reality

Alright… sorry about the long absence from the blog, guys.  I’ve had my head in code for about the last two weeks.  In defense of my lateness this week, I calculated that I’ve logged over 100 hours in the last five days getting the last...

Day Two of Out in Right Field

Thankfully, I mean, it was a close call, but thankfully I recovered the file after my computer crashed in the middle of recording this evening. You can download a copy of episode 2 of the new “Out in Right Field” here from the riz podcast stream. Due to...

Pundits are Idiots

When will the pundits of the left and the right stop calling Karl Rove things like “Bush’s Puppet-master” and start using proper names like, I don’t know, Deputy Chief of Staff? It’s annoying when I clearly know more about politics than...

So so sick

Horribly sick today.  Feels like Viral Pharyngitis, meaning I can’t do nothing about it except drink OJ and sleep it off. Suckage.  I’ve been sleeping for over 24 hours.  I think I’ll make a steaming pile of East Meets West. ...

Lack of updates: a comprehensive apology, and funny MADshow stuff

Rizzn is back, but not rested, itwould seem. There has been a distinct lack of updates around here at rizzn.com, and there’s good reasons for it.  Just so you aren’t left completely in the dark, I’ll take some time out to share with you, my...

Modern Political Liberalism – the new bigotry

[Rizzn’s Note: It’s getting bad in here.  By in here, I am referring to our country of America.  By getting bad, I refer to what I have taken to calling liberal bigotry. I’m not going to go into a great definition of liberal bigotry. ...

Mark and Darrell Show for this week

We’ve got a great MAD show planned this week.  It is estimated that we should at least very slightly exceed our usual garunteed 18% of MADshow goodness. Subjects for the show this week: What do you think of the big 10 rulez?Supreme Court is hearing a couple...

NewMedia News Discussion

By tomorrow, this article will be detailing the plans for the NewMedia News broadcast.  For now, go here and discuss our talking points from the show. Links from the MADshow from 10-10-2004. Breaking News: ABC in for a scandal of RatherGate proportions? See the...
