Innovative concept of weblogs to QR code advertising

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, December 29, 2012,

18h UTC; SATURDAY, 29 DECEMBER 2012: When you get right down to it, Your Correspondent has thought of his online e-boutique, and the swag therein offered (as powered by, as a form of free advertising vis-a-vis this very blog by its purchasers and ultimate wearers. In other words, more than a mere fashion statement; think of such as being Teh Blogospheerez' answer to the shopping bags of Stew Leonard's and the signage and bumper stickers of Wall Drug Store.

To me, this holiday break again interrupts

18h UTC; THURSDAY, 27 DECEMBER 2012: For someone online like moi with an online mall--or, even more so, an online e-tailing presence with the likes of't you just hate it when you get spam e-mails of the Lads From Lagos school insisting that they'd like to see your catalogue of wholesale merchandise for their retail presence (or reasonable facsimilie thereof), and want ordering information posthaste?

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 21 DECEMBER 2012: As if the whole delusion about the Mayan Long Count Calendar's predicting the End of the World occuring later today wasn't awful enough to fear, one needs to consider that such may actually be a misinterpretation of the Mayan calendar cycle being exploited for weird and unwholesome ends, especially where the ignorant and less-sophisto are involved.

Kicking it up a notch (per Emeril Lagasse), Chinese security agencies have taken the paranoia ensuing to be a Cl...

Is a compromise you really know to love you?

18h UTC; TUESDAY, 18 DECEMBER 2012: With reports out of Washington suggesting a possible compromise with regards to the "fiscal cliff" preemption vis-a-vis who should be targeted for tax increases--House Speaker John Boehner suggesting that such be for those with incomes of $1 million or more; President Obama, those with incomes of $400,000 or more--has anybody considered where a better solution might be to just apply tax increases on both subpopulations, with those of $1 million+ logically p...

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 18 DECEMBER 2012: There can be no mistaking the fact that last Friday's Unfortunate Events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT are continuing to trigger feelings of empathetic shock, revulsion and outrage ... especially when Elmer Gantryites, in their Luscious Glory of playing the post hoc, ergo propter hoc card to oversimplify things in their narrowly-defined context, come into the equation by insisting, to take the example of former Arkansas Governor Mike Hucka...

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 15 DECEMBER 2012: Before beginning this particular post, readers, you may or may not be aware of Certain Unfortunate Events this morning (Appy Polly Loggies to Lemony Snickett) in Newtown, CT in the otherwise "morally superior" United States as saw the martyrdom of 28 people (20 of which were children) at an elementary school there, followed by the assailant taking The Other Way Out, as if seeing Death Before Dishonour to be glorious and at once patriotic.

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 14 DECEMBER 2012: Tell me the following isn't exactly doublethink in the strictest sense of the term: The notion conservative Zealotry and True Belief hath about the so-called "Taker" classes being expected to find work (but unlikely to) while concurrently insisting that maintaining tax cuts for the "Maker" such will magically translate into jobs creation spontaneous and wholehearted.

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 13 DECEMBER 2012: If it's anything to you, the Elmer Gantryites here in our presumably "morally superior" United States must be drooling lovingly(!!) over what may best be called an outbreak of fresh religio-political hysterics thanks to an emerging alliance (howbeit discreet) between the United Russia party of state President Vladimir Putin and certain elements within the Russian Orthodox Church as may be behind an ongoing pattern of "blasphemy" complaints such as prompted...

00h UTC; MONDAY, 10 DECEMBER 2012: “In every civilization there is a moronic underworld which cannot be civilized. It can be taught to read and write, but not to think, and it lives upon the level of its emotions and prejudices.”

Thus observed the legendary editor/publisher of the Emporia (KS) Gazette, by name of William Allen White (1868-1943), in seeking to explain the appeal of certain political candidates to a vulnerable and easily-influenced...

00h UTC; SUNDAY, 9 DECEMBER 2012: Call it a weakness on my part ... but whenever I hear any insturmental version of "The Colonel Bogey March" on radio, be it online or more conventional such, Your Correspondent can't help but chime in with one of two especially popular destructions thereof as were popular in our folly of youth on the schoolyard, as in "Hitler, he only has one ball" (you probably know the lyrics thereof) or, for that matter:

What makes an exciting insane blog?

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 8 NOVEMBER 2012: With "Tea Party"-influenced and -deluded politicos somehow thinking that breaking up trade unions in favour of "right-to-work" laws and policies as could lead to deskilling of Essential Industry will help reclaim prosperity for Our Dear Lovely Nation and lead to magic and spontaneous jobs creation, Your Correspondent is one to wonder if the conservative mindset towards trade unionism is actually one out of Afrikaner mindsets in South Africa leading to apart...

How to do this blog is insane?

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 7 DECEMBER 2012: Exactly a fortnight now before what some among especially the weird and unwholesome will insist is The End of the World (based, it turns out, on a misreading and interpretation of the Mayan calendar cycle), and the lunatics can expect to be drooling overtime in their Luscious Glory of anticipation over What Will Happen Next. Which, for all we know, may actually be a non sequiteur of the most commonplace order.

By now, you've heard where the Canadian unit of Pi...

But when you get right down to it, a recent review thereof in describing this blog as "insane and [having] way too much going on" is something of a Badge of Honour that Your...
