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.

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.

Sitting here waiting for my Steam items to download (Mirrors Edge and Assassin’s Creed, thanks for asking), I began to ponder the phrases, words, and actions that are my pet peeves. I now present them in a neat, alphabetized list that you may use as a reference when communicating with me.*
Just know that there’s not any particular reason for writing this, and you shouldn’t take anything seriously – unless you’re Anthony or George. There might even be some things that you agree with, but don’t be surprised if there isn’t. In all seriousness, this post is really self-centered and is mostly a joke.

It began as a good idea, and a month later the ball was rolling. Max, Alec, Cameron, and I were going to collaborate on combining their majorly active sites into one large one. Several hundred thousands of visits a month was the plan, and we actually reached those numbers it in the month of May. This would be a big venture for all of us, but soon things went sour and 3 months later the site was announced to be closing until further notice. Why, you ask?…
If you’re not aware of what EvilChicken is, you should go ahead and skip this entry. Things are going to get in-depth and it’ll be hard to understand at points if you weren’t there from the beginning.
Before I go on, I’d just like to preface this by saying that I’m not trying to shift any blame around, but instead outline the shortcomings and faults that led to the site’s demise. This should also serve as good reference material for anyone that wishes to start a large, community oriented site.
