this video makes me think this thought: i have a hard time discerning between "the white stripes" and "the black keys."

T.J. said...

http://iwl.me/

It won't let me enter pictures or youtubes though...me confused.

T.J. said...

I apparently write like this guy:
Chuck Palahniuk

After looking up who he is I can safely say this website is full of shit.

Whitney said...

Palahniuk wrote Fight Club. I can see that from you, Teej.

And Dave's last post was written like Nabokov. Nice.

T.J. said...

Most Teej posts are written by this esteemed gentleman:

Whitney said...

A post of mine from last year was supposedly written like James Joyce's works. I always found Joyce dreadfully boring. Eerily accurate, this site.

Dave said...

dammit-- i pasted in my graduation speech, hoping it would say vonnegut or hemingway or somebody cool . . . but apparently i write like margaret atwood.

Dave said...

mr. truck writes like dan brown.

T.J. said...

Angels and GreaseTrucks

Dave said...

i put in "dear ozzy." random idiots writes like raymond chandler, which was always a favorite of mine . . .

Igor said...

Teejay writes like Jack Torrance.

Igor said...

And Dave, your sentence of the day today was like Vonnegut. Too bad it was about Fitzgerald, even quoting a passage. Stupid site.

Dave said...

and greasetruck writes like douglas adams.

i'm going to grab a douglas adams' excerpt and see if douglas adams writes like douglas adams.

Dave said...

holy shit! i did two excerpts and douglas adams writes like douglas adams! i'm going to try someone else.

Igor said...

No kidding -- John 3:16 was apparently written in the style of Bram Stoker. Some web developer is fucking going to Hell.

Dave said...

stephen king writes like stephen king. weird.

Igor said...

Gettysburg Address? H.P. Lovecraft. This is amusing me.

Dave said...

i just grabbed thirty of my sentences and apparently i DO write like kurt vonnegut! except when i write for gheorghe . . . then i'm a much more sensitive "margaret atwood."

i wish they had a site where you put your picture in and it told you who you look like. last year at obft i was burt reynolds.

Dave said...

i can't believe they have h.p. lovecraft on there. i sent my kids to art camp today and i need a haircut desperately and this is how i'm spending my precious free time . . .

Igor said...

JFK's "Ask Not" speech? Dan Brown. Nice.

Lou Gehrig's farewell speech? Stephen King. This is retarded.

Dave said...

herman melville writes like h.p. lovecraft. that's some sort of an insult, i think.

Dave said...

thomas pynchon writes like arthur conan doyle.

Dave said...

arthur conan doyle writes like arthur conan doyle.

Squeaky said...

Damn site says I write like greasetruck.

Igor said...

Haircut? Don't you just shave your head in the summer? Oh, right, you're cultivating that Burt Reynolds look. Forgot about that.

You looked more like Super Mario.

T.J. said...

In communist Russia book writes you.

Igor said...

It says the lyrics of Rush are like Alfred, Lord Tennyson. And that they are taught to schoolchildren in England.

Igor said...

Teej, did you just lay some Yakov Smirnov on us? Fantastic.

Igor said...

Kurt Vonnegut writes like Thornton Mellon.

Dennis said...

Eff....i posted some text, and it just said, "Stop."

TR said...

Diane! Say hello to my nieces.

d-train said...

me right lik sun. in august tirns 2. he on dare. booshit.

T.J. said...

Have I mentioned before how in the bag I am for Michelle Beadle? Cause I am.

T.J. said...

Your son plays for Gary Williams?

mayhugh said...

I posted a demand letter (redacted of course) and I got some H.P. Lovecraft love as well. I thought it was more like T.S. Elliot.

And Sentence of Dave is straight Melville.

Michelle Beadle is awesome. She likes sports and she's easy on the eyes. There's got to be something really wrong with her somewhere.

T.J. said...

Tractor accident?

d-train said...

i'm kind of a cowherd guy myself...

T.J. said...

D-train, seriously, keep this up and I'm going to have to change the locks.

Igor said...

Maybe it's Lecky posing as D-Train? D-Train's never been this bad before. It's like Brien Taylor.

d-train said...

lecky...posing as d-train? i think not.
Raymond Chandler

Igor said...

Got curious as to whatever happened to Brien Taylor. It's not a Hollywood ending:

"After retiring, Taylor moved to Raleigh and worked as a UPS package handler and later a beer distributor. He had a brush with the law in January 2005, in Wake Forest where police charged Taylor with misdemeanor child abuse for allegedly leaving four of his children (ages from 2 to 11) alone for more than eight hours. He didn't show up for his court date and at one point there were four outstanding warrants for his arrest. By 2006 he had moved back home and was working as a bricklayer with his father. According to financial records filed in a child support application, he makes $909 per month. He is the father of five daughters. Taylor still lives with his parents, at the end of a street named after him, in a two-story brick and frame house that he built using his signing bonus."

d-train said...

thanks for the update on brien taylor. my wife & i were talking about him just the other day. as if.
about 3 yrs ago i was in augusta jo-jah. i was having a cold & tasty beverage at one of the town's finer establishments - hooter's. at the bar was none other than "the fridge", also having a co-co one after a day of laying bricks. he seemed pretty content i have to say. although if you can't be content at hooter's, where can ya be? hmmm? hmmm? danny?!

mayhugh said...

And I'd like Fox to throw out an "All Steinbrenner Episodes" Seinfeld Marathon.

Shlara said...

My sister will be at this show.
She looks like me with blonde hair.

Igor said...

You know we have utterly commandeered the comments when I read this and say, "What the fuck show is Shlara talking about??"

Dave said...

this has been addressed in the performance review.

rob said...

late to the party because i was traveling all day. i plugged in three separate samples and got dan brown each time. this is encouraging from a commercial perspective, but somewhat less so from a literary one. fucking large hadron collider.

Mark said...

I've been slammed with work this week. i feel like I've missed out on a week's worth of discussion here and it's only been two days.

I don't quite get the seemingly universal love for Michelle Beadle. I mean, she seems cool and I'd have a beer with her but she doesn't do it for me (physically) at all. Now, Linda Cohn...

T.J. said...

Shlara, your sister better not be the blonde in front of us playing tonsil hockey.

Opening act was OK...they were called Harlem or something. Let's put it this was - Harlem Nights was better.

Mark said...

Picturing TJ at this show is thoroughly enjoyable to me. Fish, sans water.

Oh, and I write like Stephen King. Bullshit, I say.

Mark said...

Or James Joyce.

rob said...

ichiro looking like he's partaken

rob said...

josh johnson, on the other hand

Marls said...

The level of shitsuckitude of this fox broadcast is so fucking high. McCarver is a douchie blowhard, but my god it is nothing compared to Buck. It is all sappy cliches and easy fluff. What makes it worse it that this fuck will be calling 50% of the big games between now and groundhog day.

rob said...

that comment: stephen king. i think it was the compound expletive.

Marls said...

It appears that rob and I both have commercial success in our future.

rob said...

kuo no!

rob said...

yeah, sorry.

Marls said...

Kuo vadis asshole?

T.J. said...

Dennis and I will be kidnaping this lead singer chick of Dead Weather...wowser. Forget Beadle.

Shlara said...

Depending on what I submit, I write like: Dan Brown, James Joyce and Stephen King.

Huh?

T.J. said...

Better than Dee Brown, Jim Joyce and Larry King.
