First and foremost, I used to play in a band about 10 years or so ago, which ended up falling apart under unfortunate circumstances. We used to think ourselves something of a metal band, based solely on the fact that our lead singer thought he was a member of Pantera, but I tried my best to add some jazz bass-lines and class it up a bit. I think if I had been my own person back then, and fully embraced the gay perversion inside me – I could have had a lot more fun with it all, but that didn’t happen. I moved too far away to make it to practices at the drop of a hat, and they gave me the boot. But I did make a few friends in the hardcore, metal, and even rock-a-billy scenes up here, so I don’t have much in the way of regrets (except maybe that I’m not still playing).
This is one of those blogs thats based on a true story, though. Granted, not the portion about the orgy (I wish) but rather the part about Google Ad-sense having decided to pull anything to do with my comic. I’m also to understand that this decision is beyond repeal at this point, and quite honestly, I’ve broken a lot of their “rules” when it comes to what kind of sites they’ll allow advertisements on. Now, I seem to recall some pretty raunchy links via Google-ads that I’ve seen on other sites in the past, but apparently they’ve tried to clean up their image? They linked me to one specific comic when telling me that I would no longer be allowed to run their ads on my site, which involved Rick and Drew looking at sex toys in a shop (the one with the cock-chucks)… Now – honestly, this is probably one of the most tame of the comics… Adult language? Sure… But it’s not even one of the ones where I link to pornography in the blog section! I mean, get your shit together, Google.
So, over the course of time that I was doing business and hosting advertisements for them, I had actually “earned” about fifteen bucks. However, due to their own policies – this is money that I will never see because they don’t pay out any money until you hit a hundred bucks, minimum. I know, I know – it’s not much and I should get over the idea that I’ve been running ads for them for free… but I am a pretty damn petty guy and I think that they’re semi-retarded for judging the content of a person’s site quite as harshly. Honestly, if people who like crude humor also want to go to one of the shitty gay singles sites that they listed on a regular basis, why would they put a restriction on that? It baffles the mind.
Oh well, though – I could likely panhandle more money on a street-corner in an hour then I would have made in a year working with Ad-sense, so *sour grapes* and fuck-ems to the lot.
In other news – storms are gay. The end.
