    Thanks for the link.πŸ™‚

  2. chartreuse Says:

    Wait till Scott Karp learns about your site. He’s going to love it!

  3. Gabe Says:

    chartreuse, have you ever changed your mind?

    My advice: either stay small, or never shift your opinion on anything. Because when you’re a small blogger, changes of mind are just that. But when you’re bigger, playa haters will call it hypocrisy.

  4. range Says:

    I was surprised to learn that this add was actually run in Canada. My thoughts on it? Reminds me of Total Recall.

  5. chartreuse Says:

    I think the TechCrunch issue is a little more than changing your mind. He said a product sucked but after they started advertising he changed his tune. Suddenly the product got better.

    No one cares if someone changes their mind. The real question is why?

  6. Gabe Says:

    chartreuse: if you’re interested in “why”, a good place to look is the comments of the post you pointed to.

    BTW, you called changing your mind about ads “shenanigans”. I’m sorry, but even if the reasons are purely monetary, that’s a business decision, not shenanigans, and not hypocrisy. (And it’s totally cool with me that YOU changed your mind on ads.)


  7. Howard Lindzon is a handful. I almost had to use the mace on him. Still might have to.


  8. You don’t scare me.


  9. Hey chartreuse, thanks for the link!πŸ™‚ Wow! Sometimes issues really do have legs…

    Check out the update, Action: Boobs, Booze & Boycotts.

  10. Andy H Says:

    The Techcrunch and Betterthanbeer threads were more or less complete wastes of time. When did everyone become so catty and self-righteous? What a bunch of jerks, ALL OF EM!πŸ˜‰

  11. Brian Says:

    >>>Wow! Sometimes issues really do have legs…

    Yeah, and sometime ads have three tits, and yes such an ad is stupid, crass and creepy, but so are bullying, self rightious, thought police like you and your minions.

    If that political poet thinks Prince is a political correctness advocate, she’s seriously deluded.

    Have you actually read this blog?

    How did you like Hot Chick Weekend? Pretty empowering, no?

  12. Andy H Says:

    > How did you like Hot Chick Weekend? Pretty empowering, no?

    Got ‘er!


  13. Hey, I don’t care who reads my blog: morons, sexist pigs, or dweebs who get kicks out of harassing women. They tend to add fuel to the fire. I’m just amazed that one fat feminist with hair under her arms can see her blog stats multiply 100% in 24 hours. So again, thanks for the link.

  14. Brian Says:

    It was good link bait… gotta give her props for that, Andy.

  15. candice Says:

    That’s the thing about some “feminist” girls. They get offended so easily.

    I’ll take actual power over that “self-empowerment” “feminist” nonsense any day.

  16. Brian Says:

    You go Candice!


  17. In the printed May issue of The Straight here in Vancouver the same three boobied woman appeared. I looked and then kept turning the pages. Someone, however wrote a comment to them questionsing their motive and then asking when the blond guy with three dicks would apear.

    I agree with range that it reminds me of Total Recall. What the wonders of and oxygen depleted Marsian atmosphere and photshop can do.πŸ˜‰


  18. Uh, Candice, Sister…empowerment is actual power.

  19. Adam Kalsey Says:

    So who’s *Brien* Kalsey? Long lost cousin of mine, perhaps? Thanks for the link anyway.

  20. chartreuse Says:

    Adam,
    I just love that cousin of yours! His blog rocks!

    [sorry for the typo. I’m an idiot. But I got it right everywhere else!]
