Prime time television is a cruel place. If a show scores below two million views consistently, you can expect it to be cut by the executives. Sometimes that happens to truly great shows that just happen to be competing with other already popular programs like American Idol or even the Superbowl. Nonetheless, while everyone else is watching Simon Cowell in his ill-fitting shirts, there are still those one million loyal viewers waiting to see what happens in their favourite (albeit unpopular) series.
Today, I’ll be sharing some of those shows that had great potential, but a bad time slot. With all the garbage on TV these days, it might be good to shed some light on some shows that were unique, well produced, or ahead of their time.

Recently I had a problem when I moved my blog from blog.fantikerz.com to fantikerz.com. I had far too many links on other sites that still looked like http://blog.fantikerz.com/?p=261, and wouldn’t redirect to the new blog’s location. I wouldn’t even know where to start if I had to change all of those.

I’ve always loved typography used as the focal point in motion graphic videos. I’ve even tried my hand at making them. Needless to say, I wasn’t successful due to the lack of patience on my part.

Sure, they’re cool, but take into account that each movement of text is scripted and perhaps you will understand the almost artistic beauty of these videos.

Everyone wants to relax once and a while and become entranced by the stupid humor that YouTube so graciously harbors. Once in a while, I come across an amusing video that should be much more popular than it currently is. In this post, I’ll share some of those videos with less than 300,000 views (at the time of posting) that will surely make you laugh or smile. No guarantees though.
Just a warning: these videos may be stupidly funny, so your self-pride may be at risk. It also might be a good idea to watch these when you’re alone, as some may be distasteful for the workplace.

I was trying to find a past email thread when one caught my eye, then another, and another. It seems that for every idiotic email I had gotten in the first part of the year, I replied with a sarcastic / zealous / humorous message. I’ve totally forgotten about some of these so I figured it may be fun to share.
The first one comes from a person who uses the alias Dorgles. It isn’t exactly hilarious, but it may serve a chuckle to a few.
