Howdy!

 

My name is Craig and I'm second-in-charge at A Bloggy Mess ( http://abloggymess.com/ ), a blog containing the uncensored thoughts and words of me and several of my friends. We write about whatever tickles our fancy, be it music, videogame, wrestling, art, sci-fi, or anything-related.

 

The main point of this blatant self-promotion is thus: we need more able-bodied hands to valiantly type onto their keyboards and form their coherent thoughts into entertaining paragraphs. Which we will then share with the world via Facebook and Twitter. Although we have existed online for just over a year, and have a decent fanbase/readership, we could really use some fresh blood to create interesting articles.

 

None of us who write for the site earn a dime from it - we just love to create and yammer about topics we enjoy. Currently, our site accepts no ads (or actual income, honestly), though that could change, and then we could discuss the possibility of payment. 

 

So if you would like to jump aboard with a gang of rowdy, nerdy idiots who like to ramble about Ric Flair, Guns N' Roses, Cosmos, Kool Moe Dee, and Godzilla - then step right up and fire off an email to Jason at abloggymess@gmail.com and let him know you're up for the challenge of a lifetime! Or something equivalent...

 

Check out the site for examples of what I'm talking about, and thanks for taking the time to read thru all this tripe.

And by the worst, he of course means the best...at being the worst.

Time for some site updates!

 

We're still hunting for a few good men/women to work up posts for our ever-so-slowly expanding blog. Get at us via abloggymess@gmail.com for more info!

 

Over the last few weeks, the site has been nicely active, mostly thanks to the surrounding hype from Guardians of the Galaxy. And how did we piggyback on said hype? With this (vaguely-related) post: http://abloggymess.c...014-i-am-groot/ and this even better (totally related) post right here: http://abloggymess.c...some-mix-vol-2/

 

Also, on the videogame front, I just wrapped up my annual Backlog Challenge. You game, you get a backlog. See how I handle my current overflowing pile. Check out Part 1 here: http://abloggymess.c...ge-2014-part-1/ and Part 2 over here: http://abloggymess.c...ge-2014-part-2/

 

Random posts that might be of interest:

 

I love Disney's The Black Hole (check out my avatar above), so I wrote a gif-filled post about it: http://abloggymess.c...the-black-hole/

 

Do you like PhotoShop Battles? Well, have I got one for ya - take our picture of a giant cat statue and MAKE IT BETTER! Win Internet fame! http://abloggymess.c...ant-cat-statue/

 

Sorry for the spammy, rambling post, but dammit, I worked hard on this shiz, and want eyeballs to peruse my wares! Check out whatever sounds interesting to you, and I promise - you MAY NOT regret it!

It's been a minute, but I'm back with some newer post updates, and some BIG NEWS!

 

Since I'm impatient as hell, here's the big news: we got us a new writer! And he's from the hallowed grounds of everybody's favorite website - this one! Going by the death-defying name/handle of CookieParty, he's already worked up two hot posts for you (and the rest of the world) to gaze upon in wonder. His first one was a Retro Review of a long-forgotten NES wonder: http://abloggymess.c...mbassy-mission/ . And his second post served as a gateway into the lawless, untamed Wild West that is...Fantasy Football. Read that one....here: http://abloggymess.c...ntasy-football/ . We welcome Cookie and all his vast expertise in wrestling, gaming, and whatnots to the Bloggy Mess fold!

 

Also of possible interest, we have some quick n' dirty reviews of some movies you've probably heard of (X-Men, Edge Of Tomorrow), and the vaguely-titled Videogames The Movie: http://abloggymess.c...tember-11-2014/

 

You asked for game reviews by 5-year-olds, and YOU GOT IT: http://abloggymess.c...ptember-4-2014/

 

Who doesn't love the Suikoden series? Nobody I care to associate with, that's who. Our resident Book Guru, Ken, drops knowledge on his favorite titles in the series: http://abloggymess.c...ughts-suikoden/

 

So there you have it: more stuff to read while on the john. You're welcome.

 

And if you'd like to join this hardy ship of fools and crank out literary perfection, drop us a line at: abloggymess@gmail.com for more info. Thanks for wasting precious seconds skimming over this post and promptly forgetting it existed! A WINNER IS YOU!

Time for yet another bi-weekly-ish update. No more bets, please!

 

What have we featured in the last 2 or so weeks? Um, well...HOW BOUT THIS??? One of our newest writers (and CAG's very own CookieParty) took a litle trip recently and ended up at a LIVE WRASSLIN' EVENT. Whoa, right? Check out his findings at this lovely link: http://abloggymess.c...eston-wv-91914/

 

In game-related news, we have two posts with slightly varying topics. One is about the true originators of 'table-top gaming': Board Games. Read that one here: http://abloggymess.c...ts-bored-games/ On the other hand, we have a three-way post containing the thoughts of three unpaid bloggers who just so happened to play the BIGGEST GAME IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW: a little indie title that goes by the name of Destiny: http://abloggymess.c...estiny-edition/

 

How 'bout a review of this season's most anticipated new TV show? BOOM: http://abloggymess.c...-review-gotham/

 

Like to read compilations of robot-driven spam? Who doesn't? Not I, says me. We actually have a monthly post compiling the 'best of the most useless' comments the site receives. It's called "Comment Spam." It's amazing: http://abloggymess.c...september-2014/

 

FREE ART: http://abloggymess.c...ht-free-images/

 

Musically, we're supposed to represent. We have two regular weekly posts containing tons o' tunes: Mixtape Monday and Friday Five. Both are, to put it bluntly, the best things ever.

 

A sample of recent Mixtapes include: one kinda about Bojack Horseman - http://abloggymess.c...a-million-911s/ , one about cable company oppression (and Spotify) - 

 http://abloggymess.c...t-2014-edition/ , and one featured a guest appearance by Marvel's The Watcher - http://abloggymess.c...5-2014-what-if/ .

 

On the Friday tip, we have one about rockin' chicks in...um, well, rock - http://abloggymess.c...women-who-rock/ , and another touching on Orange Is The New Black (and the Dead Milkmen) - http://abloggymess.c...19/friday-five/

 

Enough shop talk for now. See something that interests you? Click on it and read it! Right this second! You never know when the bombs are gonna drop, and do you wanna be 'left behind'? No, no you do not. And once again, wanna join up with the hottest gang of weirdos this side of...well, anything? Send me a PM and I'll put you on the road to fame and/or fortune.*

 

*Fame and/or fortune not guaranteed.

Update? Why not!

 

Just last week was Halloween (remember that?), and here on the Mess we had a full week of horror-themed excitement. We had two musical mixes: the typical Mixtape Monday (http://abloggymess.c...ty-soundtracks/), and the one-off Ebola-themed Mix (http://abloggymess.c...-to-our-demise/). On the scary tip, we had a Weird Wednesday chock full of well, weirdness (http://abloggymess.c...spooky-edition/), and a ghost-themed Friday Five (http://abloggymess.c...ng-friday-five/). For you gaming fans, we had two posts that might be up your alley this past week: a Minimal_Thoughts containing both The Evil Within and The Walking Dead Season 2 (http://abloggymess.c...loween-edition/), and a retroview of a truly terrifying NES non-classic (http://abloggymess.c...onster-returns/).

 

Also of potential interest: a review of the latest Godzilla reboot (http://abloggymess.c...-godzilla-2014/), a Must List containing the music of Must Band Sleater-Kinney (http://abloggymess.c...sleater-kinney/), and a Henry Rollins-approved playlist (http://abloggymess.c...proved-edition/).

 

Gaming-wise, if you somehow managed to miss all the hubbub about GameStop's Mystery Bag promotion, join one of our writers (and fellow CAG) in experiencing the joy (and pain) of such an awesome adventure (http://abloggymess.c...stery-grab-bag/).
