It’s been a good run so far with FFI, and although we have a few slow-downs recently, we’re still growing every day.

If you are a reader of one little blog, casual or otherwise, you most likely won’t understand the title of this entry, and that’s a-ok. If you’re an author, most likely you won’t either, but you should and shame on you.

This date, August 13 2011, was when over one-thousand collective brains got to see the beauty that is Fisch Fail Inc. It was also the day that I noticed our blog was becoming something of a big deal. Honestly until that point I mostly blogged for no one, except for maybe myself and Mr. Fail, but afterward I began doing it for a lil ones… I mean the readers.

Seriously though; you guys have gotten us to new heights, and for that I am thankful.

A lot of crap has gone down recently (more on that later) so the blog has gotten somewhat neglected as of late, but hopefully that will change and more posts will be on their way.

Here’s to getting 1000000 views before the end of the year!


Welcome, don’t forget to share this blog with your friends and subscribe for the latest in entertainment. And if you use StumbleUpon, go ahead and give us a thumbs up, would ya? Thanks!

Fisch Fail, INC, is still a baby, still growing, still something…infant

If we were a human baby, we would be learning to speak, and maybe eat something that didn’t have the consistency of baby food. But fuck, we’ve already moved on to tacos and alcohol… Says something about us!

Anyway, yesterday we hit a random milestone… 20,000 views (and damnit, I was going to make sure I got to make this announcement!).

So, it took us nearly a year and a half to get our first 10,000… It took us 6 months, to get our second.

Lets try and beat that record (for us) even quicker.

Tell everyone about FFI, let’s do it!

 

 

 

With Our Blood, Sweat, and Tears

Short post today, and something I found interesting.

STEAMPUNK!

Yep it’s one of them there topical posts, but with a little bit of a twist.

Now while I am writing this I am currently distracting myself with Plants v. Zombies as well, so bear with me.

I went to the mall today, and never in my life have I noticed the “mainstream-ness” of Steam punk. It’s not something like a big group of Victorian Era teeny-boppers were running around the scene (but I did see a Furry, but more on that later) or anything like that, and it’s not as if it were a cog-strewn wonderland either. It was… subtle…

So me, Weakening Elms (my lovely girlfriend, more on her in the Sleep Talking tag), and Bexhet (a good friend who should JOIN US!) were gallivanting through the mall and we go into a poppy-trendy women fashion store (thank Ms. Elms for that one) and she holds up a pair of earrings. Looking nice but nothing important to note, were two peacock-feathered coppery earrings she wanted. There was some sort of buy-one-get-one sale going on, so she decided to pick another. These were something to behold, in my opinion; a copper/bronze cuckoo-style clock top with chains leading to metal feathers. It was strange to see in such a store, and then I began to pay attention.

Small steam punk-ish watch parts dangled delicately upon keychains (Ms. Elms was enthralled by the “antiquish” look) and faux skeleton keys were hung from antique-looking necklaces. I immediately thought to myself “oh wow… if there were some sort of Cthulhu -themed necklace I would freak” and continue – now growing in interest – the look-around.

Then I saw the fucker…

Seriously… while not exactly Cthulhu… it was a detailed silver octopus with zirconium (or crystals, I dunno, I’m a guy) for suction cups.

Was I to be displeased and vow to never visit the mall again? …or bow to my corporate overlords and give up?

I quickly got over myself and onward we went.

Into another store…

…with more brass/bronze/copper flash mixed with Victorian elements mixed with Lovecraft-esque flair. What do, Internet? What… do?!?

Needless to say there was much to wonder about and many things to ponder, but honestly I know I will not fall into the Hipster-like quality of “I liked it before it be all mainstreamy” because steam punk was rather popular well before I took an interest.

So well and behold: steam punk is here, and apparently not going any-damn-where any-damn-time!

 

Beeeeeeep~

We’ve been busy as all get-out… but I assure you everyone (and I mean everyone!) will be creating a veritable storm of posts as soon a humanly possible. Thank Mr. Fail and Mr. Pie for keeping us going strong, and I can assure them both that they will not have to pull everyone’s weight.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.

 

We Are Gathered Here…

So I’m officially back, and happy to be as well.

Now for some seriousness…

RIP to every blog that will never be posted upon ever again…

I was recently stumbling and came across a Steampunk-esque blog that was wordpress-based created by a historian with Harvard cred. It was a cute blurb about linguistics and was entertaining, so I th0ught I may as well look to his main page.

…He gave up upon the blog on December of 2010…

It was so very unfortunate that the blog died before I could even begin to enjoy it’s content. I “liked” it, but did not real further than the Stumbled entry and the final one, due to the fact that it would be like reading about a wonderful person, getting into their imaginative work, wanting to read more of said work, but realizing their final work was their own epitaph.

Dear bloggers of the universe: someone out there loves your writing, no matter whom. Never give up until you cannot type another meaningful passage, because your biggest fan may not even know you have yet to exist.

Finally, I will not post a link to the dead blog, due to the fact that I do not wish the same disappointment upon anyone else.

 


So, it’s officially the one year anniversary of Fish Fail, INC. What can we do to mark this momentous occasion? Talk about what we always talk about… That’s right POOP!

Now this was mentioned a while back when I spoke of my first pooping experience. There really isn’t much to this story but it’s funny all the same.

When I was younger and living at my mom’s I had to poop and bad. This was a make or break kind of situation. I ran up the stairs, and past my mom entertaining guests in the kitchen. I run to the bathroom. My sister was in it at the time and I REALLY had to go.

So I run further down the hall to my mom’s bathroom. Here is where it gets funny. My mom has a small counter-top in front of the toilet. I forget this as I pull my pants down with urgency and sit down on the toilet with all the ferocity of a Creeper about to explode.

WHAM! I bang my head on the counter-top. Ignoring this I continue about my business, until I see blood on the floor. That’s right, I split my head open while pooping. I didn’t know if I should wipe my head or my ass. Eventually, after I’m done I go back to tell my mother what happened. She took me to the hospital, where I got eleven stitches.

Oh, and by the way… Your favourite Internet Sensation has returned!
