Britney Spears 'In The Zone'
I know that it’s been a long time since I updated this hear site of mine and if you haven’t noticed, there are a few changes.
I’ve changed the title for one thing. Since I’m no longer an overnight jock these days (seriously unemployed at the moment), I’ve changed the name from Too Dangerous For Daylight to Wheeler’s Dog.
I’ve also grabbed a domain name for this here little mental masturbation and decided to turn it into a full blown website. So chances are good that you were redirected to wheelersdog.com without any problems.
I can’t really say that it wasn’t without problems on my end. Getting the domain name was easy, but trying to understand the computer geek jargon caused me a couple of sleepless nights. I was pulling out my hair and cussing like an Irish priest trying to figure that crap out. Oh sure, my site host and blogger made it all look so simple. But to me it was like trying to figure out how to perform triple by-pass surgery with a road map of Guam.
It was a very stressful week for me. I lost my part-time job at Majic 94.1 and I couldn’t grasp all that computer stuff. I had to watch lots of pornography and eat copious amounts of Food Lion’s Cheerwine sherbet just to take the edge off.
Eventually, I broke down and asked for the assistance of people that know what their doing. Jonathan Everett was cool enough to rifle the instructions and within an hour wheelersdog.com was up and running with perfect redirects.
The man is simply a miracle worker and if he bitches about helping with my every computer issue, he must be saving it all for his wife. So Jonny boy… Thank you so much! And when I go full-blown, I’ll be ringing your phone.
You’re probably wondering why I went with a domain instead of using the tried and true djeugene.blogspot.com… Or maybe you’re not. Either way, I wanted something easy to remember and easy to find. And it’ll look good on bumper stickers, t-shirts, and eventually a full wrap on my vehicle.
Perhaps you’re wondering where I got the name Wheeler’s Dog.
It’s a reference to my all-time favorite television show, Green Acres. I’ve gone to the trouble of finding it on YouTube so you won’t waste your time Googling the hell out of it. Be sure to watch it all for the full effect and a great scene with Mr. Haney.
There’s a Wheeler’s Dog logo that Rick Talbert (RIP brother) and I designed with my foray into mix tape trading back in the 1990’s. Eventually it will replace the picture of the Ford Galaxy 500 at the top now.
If you’re curious to see the other photographs that I snapped of that Galaxy, look ‘em up on my facebook page. They’re titled “Junkers”.
I haven’t updated since last September. I just didn’t have the urge to write anything with an hour drive to work and an hour drive back. Sure it’s an excuse, but it’s a good one. Now that I seemingly have plenty of time, I will update more frequently.
Thanks for checking in and if you’re a first time visitor, by all means, start reading from the beginning. Perhaps you’ll find something entertaining.
