Possibly The Last Post

It's quite obvious that the blog is dying. From the highs we hit in May to August where our reader number inflated all the way up to the giddy heights of five to now, when I'm convinced only one of them is still alive. So before we go any further, let's thank dirtycowgirl for still being around, somewhat, but that being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if she got the hell out of this sinking ship now. It would be the sensible thing to do.

The year anniversary of the return to the blog has now past and the post planned for the occasion never turned into reality. Now there are three options for us. The first is to just quit and go away and pretend this sad excuse for a blog never existed. Maybe that would be best. The second is to leave the confines of the services of the Google gods and move away to emo-fuckhole Tumblr or the confusing as hell Wordpress. More and more people like those things. You don't need Google IDs to comment. Sounds good. The third is to continue to struggle with our lonely blog as we have for so long. We could start posting more. But without any comments and shit, what's in it for us? Why should we be motivated to continue?

The demise of this blog is not only due to the abandonment of 4 of our readers. I suppose we have to take blame as well. We’re lazy bastards. We’ve always been lazy bastards but we used to still spew out more garbage for our few minions. What’s happened to us, Bad Ideas?

I suppose the initial excitement of finding out our blog is being read somewhere around the world has died down. The fluttery happiness of finding a new follower has vanished and has been replaced with cold indifference. We both have studies to pretend to do. A site named 9gag has stolen both our souls and now we spend more time than a sensible person should not spend on anything other than scrubbing his privates after seeing a lady of the night in Bangkok, on this site. I write more than I should as I churn out shitty writing for a shitty paper, which by the way was something Bad Ideas convinced me to do. He…watches anime. Both of us are sad fucks and pathetic excuses for, well not for human beings, pathetic excuses for people our age.

We’re socially awkward losers. There’s no denying it. But that’s probably why we have a blog. The internet is the safe haven of losers like us. But now I return to the original question posed by this incessantly long post, what do we do about the blog? I don’t expect any comments and replies. The lack will be answer enough. But somehow, deep down, I’m hoping somebody will tell us to stay. But whether that will happen remains to be seen. And now, goodbye, perhaps for the last time.

That Guy

Oh and here’s a picture of Good Guy Greg. A meme. Something I found on 9gag.


  1. Please stay. I wait a long time between your posts that is how awesome this blog is. If you close it then where can I find strange and sarcastic stuff to read? I need you to stay you were one of the first blogs I followed...

    btw your other followers might be asleep or busy so wait a little longer.

  2. That Guy, the mark of a good blog for me, is that I'm willing to wait the long period between each posts. That's because the wtiting on this blog is both superior to other humour blogs and also bloody hilarious.

    I understand the being jaded part but just because people aren't commenting, doesn't mean they're not reading, ie fuckers like ME!

    It would be sad to see the end od Random Shit, it really would.

  3. stay damnit. just because you dont get comments doesnt mean noone appreciates what you do. They never say nice job and thank you to the garbage man, but they are always happy to see him show up. So stay here and keep moving the shit we call reality around and make us lol, even if some of us are too shy to say hi, we will still be sad to see you vanish, that is, until we forget who that that guy was :p

  4. I think you should stay - especially because I now feel kinda famous and special here.

    As the others have said, just because you don't post very often doesn't mean people will go away. They will just be happy when you do deliver a little gem of a post.

  5. I agree with everyone's previous posts. Give yourself some extra credit, people are reading! :)

  6. Well, I suppose it's to keep going.

    But no seriously, some interaction wouldn't hurt.

  7. I think maybe your followers are also lazy bastards.

    1. Which is why they're failures as bloggers. Like me. Notice how I took nearly a month to reply to your comment?
