A Year Already?

By the way, today is officially the first anniversary of Slack LaLane. I just realized that.

On Wednesday, May 26, 2004, Donnie and I posted the following communique from my apartment:

Slack LaLane: Getting Started

Welcome to Slack LaLane. Brought to you by Minolta: From the mind of Minolta...aaand by Enterprise: We'll pick you up. Enterprise.

Thanks Roscoe.

Online Cake will not be served. I'm wearing this pointy hat right now.

Hey man- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Thanks for helping us all slack off and under-achieve for one full year and counting...

The strange thing is, my productivity has never been higher. I don't get it either.

Yes, thanks to everyone at Slack Lalane for aiding and abetting my procrastination, constipation and acculturation (big word that I just learned).

Can you please give a "thank you" speech a la Hilary Swank:

"I'd like to thank my publicist and best friend, Candy. You are my rock upon which I stand tall. My husband and B-List celebrity Chad. Without you, I'd probably be banging Ben Affleck by now, well, at least publicly. To my agent, Stan Lebowitz, you make the world turn and gets me paid...........blah blah blah"

Congrats!! My blog just past a year too. It's an important milestone.

Keep up the great work.

Congrats Ace...

Congratulations, sorry I missed the first half or so.

 
At 12:21 PM, Blogger jp said...

By the way, would it be ok to link you on my blog?

 
At 12:35 PM, Blogger Don Fiedler said...

Congratulations. Too bad I missed the second half or so.

Thanks everybody...the funny thing is, Donnie was the driving force behind this blog being started, and now he's dead. Unfortunate. Can I even joke about something like that?

On a serious note, I LOVE the fact that we've got a little community building here, and I want you guys to post comments as often as you feel like procrastinating at work. We started this to sound off on issues and nonsense, but now it's gotten to the point where I love to hear what some of you guys are thinkin' as well. In a sappy statement, let me just say that I genuinely look forward to posting every morning so you guys can respond. And I love the fact that I've made some new friends through this thing. You've all definitely made the last year of killing time on the Internet a fun experience. Keep it up, fellers.

JP, you sure can. You just have to sign a waiver saying "I like to sleep with llamas" and we're good to go.

As long as they're female llamas, I'm in.

you know how guys like renteria have a personal handshake/dance with every red sock? well ace, i think you need to have a virtual handshake with all of your regular commenters.

i think ours should be: typing "$^@", then pumping your chest with your right hand, and spinning around in your office chair). big ups to ya!

 
At 12:45 PM, Blogger ethan said...

i'd also like to pledge my support to the quotes in random places on the site, like the "nice prank, farva" below all the links.

 
At 12:51 PM, Blogger PaulNoonan said...

Happy birthday. If only I'd gotten here sooner. Alas.

And quoting Super Troopers is all good.

Why not go for a "Dude, Where's My Car?" reference and surprise JP by making him sleep with an Ostrich (other than the fact that it may be the stupidest movie ever made of course)?

 
At 12:58 PM, Blogger poophopanonymous22 said...

a supersized kudos bar is in order for this momentous occassion. first, i'd like to thank god for making all of this possible, along with al gore, for inventing the internets...

slack looooooooks like a monkeeeeyyyy, and he smells like one tooooooooooooooooo

$^@ spinaroooooooooooo

Along with Ethan's spectacular idea of having a handshake, you need a motto as well. Something like:

At Slack Lalane we understand that "ugliness" and "fatness" are genetic disorders, much like baldness or necrophilia, and it's only your fault if you don't hate yourself enough to do something about it.

 
At 1:24 PM, Blogger Ace Cowboy said...

Man you guys are fockin' cracking me up today...

Ethan, I'm in on the handshake thing. But isn't that like every ballplayer in the major leagues, not just Renteria?

Dude, Where's My Car? is a great stoner movie...no more, no less. I think about the "And, then" line every time I get a handjob from an Asian chick.

Matty, that slogan is hysterical...did you make that up? If so, market it. You can make millions somehow. I don't know how, but I like it and I have faith.

Our slogan would have to be an obscure movie line, like "Slack LaLane -- where giving a $500 tip to the housekeeper is inexcusable and innappropriate." Anyone?

Lastly, here are some stats for Year One:

42,755 unique visitors (although if you come once a day every day you count as 365 visitors).

327 avg. visitors per day

119,385 total page views. Pretty sure between me, AGU, poophop and Ethan we count for about 100K of that.

844 page views a day

This is probably a week or two for Mulgrew, but for me, I'll take it. It's been a year, some good, some bad, but it's been a year.

i still remember that glorious day when dear friend of slack, qlrm, told me about this here "blog". i was like, did u just swear at me dude?

there will be a 5 o'clock free crack giveaway today, correct?

Bottle Rocket:

Pointless act! You don't give a 500 dollar tip to the housekeeper! That's inappropriate! That's inexcusable! That, I don't forgive! What were you thinking? What were you thinking?

And no, I did not make that slogan up. That's a line from "Dodgeball". Which I saw for the first time last weekend, and have seen 4 times since then. That's the beauty of staying home from work sick with 4 DVD's in your library.

Happy Birthday Ace Cowboy.

I'm singing all breathy like Marilyn Monroe right now.

Yeah. It's not the same at 8 months pregnant. Oh well. Happy birthday, anyway.

 
At 3:55 PM, Blogger Ace Cowboy said...

Poophop, you must be workin too hard that story's about as old as the "Biggest Choke Ever" line. You're still loved, though.

Thanks Gypsy...I think 8 months pregnant is hot as shit. Well, it was when Mary-Louise Parker was 8 months pregnant. Unfortunately Billy C didn't feel the same way.

 
At 4:52 PM, Blogger TJ in OH said...

Well done, Acey Deucy. Don's "missed the second half" line up there gave me the giggles. You boys are the goods!

ace . . . at dinner, you should get the big piece of chicken.

 
At 10:29 AM, Blogger Ace Cowboy said...

Big thanks to everyone from Donnie and I...we enjoy you folks.
