Azn Badger's Blog

What About the Lysine Contingency…?

Merry Christmas From The Azn Badger!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Like the tree?

Sadly, it’s an artificial one, as the Azn Badger’s mother has allergies to Christmas trees of the real variety.

Even so, I think it looks pretty snazzy.

Anyway, here’s some more photos of the Azn Badger’s Christmas decorations:

Behold, the mound of gifts!

Yo Frankie, Happy Birthday.

The Azn Badger would like to take this opportunity to wish a happy birthday to the uncannily pitch-perfect  apex of pimp, Frank Sinatra; who would have been 95 years old today and still able to bag more tail in a night than Charlie Sheen could hope to in a lifetime.

You’ve brought joy to no less than 3 generations of my family’s lineage, and for that you deserve a special post on this blog all to yourself.

Thanks Frankie, and happy birthday.

Gee Willikers Batman! 50,000 Hits!?

... It's better if you don't ask.

SUPER SPECIAL BROWNIE POINTS TO ANYONE THAT RECOGNIZES THE DUDE IN THE HELMET IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER!!!

Well folks, today the Azn Badger’s blog officially breached the 50,000 hit milestone.

For those that are keeping score at home, that’s a fuck-ton of hits.

Seriously man, I started this blog as a means of keeping myself busy while I was between jobs, but I never expected things to take off as much as they have.

That being said, it recently occurred to me that I’ve been writing this blog every day for over 200 days straight now; and yet I’m still going strong.

That’s a pretty impressive accomplishment in itself if you ask me.

Every time I have one of these milestone posts, I end up writing about what I feel I need to improve on, or what I need to change, or more often than not; how I’ll probably stop posting every day in the near future.

This time though, I’m gonna’ skip all that.

This time I’m just gonna’ say “thanks,” and go on doing what I’ve been doing for the past 50,000 hits.

So, with that I say thank you again to all who have been reading, and enjoy the communist Totoro celebratory image!

Here’s to 50,000 more hits in the near future!

Holy Schnikes! 25,000 Hits!

Quite possibly the finest image I've ever produced...

Greetings true believers!

Yesterday was the first day I invited a guest contributor to post on this blog.

Yesterday was also the first day my blog ever scored more than 450 hits.

Not only that, today the Azn Badger’s blog was fortunate to score over 3,000 hits.

… So am I to understand that my blog’s best days are the one’s in which the Azn Badger let’s someone else do the writing?

Ouch.

… Nah, I’m just Joshin’ yah’, I’m happy as a clam!

Thank you Mencius, for you contribution, and more importantly; your promotional efforts.

The success of this blog would be 3,000 something hits less without you.

Anyway, hope you like my Stallone/Ultimate Warrior mural.

I assure you, it was crafted with pure love.

Oh yeah, and Photoshop…

I’m not about to make any promises for what the future holds for this blog, (I learned my lesson about 15,000 hits ago…) however I will say that a potential podcast is definitely in the works, as well as maybe a stupid homemade action movie or 2!

That being said, thank you for your readership, expect more fun and insanity in the days to come.

Until tomorrow folks!

Excelsior!

Jimminy Christmas! 10,000 Hits!?

Holy fucking shit.

10, THOUSAND hits?

Wasn’t it less than a month and a half ago that we were celebrating the 5,000 hit milestone?

I don’t know what’s changed, but in the past week or so has been nothing but peak day after peak day.

For whatever reason, the hits have come flooding in as of late, and for that, I am truly thankful.

To all who have stopped by from time to time, thanks a bunch.

With 10,000 hits (and change) now firmly under my belt, I feel I’ve reached an important turning point in the progression of this blog/writing project of mine.

By that I mean, it may be time to expand and do more than just write articles everyday.

Some of my coworkers suggested, and in fact offered to participate in the production of a podcast.

I know what you’re thinking:

“A multimedia Azn Badger’s blog?¬† Surely you must be crazy…”

Gary Busey: A Man All About "Crazy."

I’ve never done a podcast before, but I am sincerely intrigued by the prospect of making one, so expect streaming audio goodness in the near future.

In addition to this, my brother, upon hearing that I’d reached 10,000 hits, was quite adamant about me investing in my own website.

His feeling is that, now that I have a proven audience, and some degree of presence on the internet, I should take advantage and create a formal hub for all of my work.

Doing so would allow me greater flexibility, and domain hostings aren’t all that expensive, so I think I’m actually gonna’ do it.

It’ll take some time to get it looking/working right, and it’ll probably be a pain in the ass for a month or 2, but in the end I think it will be a good investment.

Anyway, no apologies this time, ’cause frankly I think I’ve done pretty well for myself the past 5,000 hits.

Thanks again for reading!

See yah’ tomorrow.

“Well let me tell yah’ somethin’ Mean Jean! I just got 5,000 Hits, brother!”

Damn that was fast!

Seriously man, it feels like just yesterday we were celebrating the 2,500th hit on the Azn Badger’s blog…

Anyway, as is turning out to be the norm on these milestone posts, I’d like to take this opportunity to both thank and apologize to all who have read over the past few months.

As many of you are aware, I have recently re-joined the work force, a major change in my life that has served to severely limit the amount of time I have been able to devote to this blog.

Despite that, as you may have noticed, I’ve still managed to post EVERY DAY.

How’s that for dedication?

Anyway, on the apologetic side of things, really the only thing I feel I’ve let you guys down on was in my spamming of the Let’s Play videos.

I (kinda’) like making them, and I hope at least a few of were able to extract some form of entertainment from watching them, however I am fully aware of how long and tedious they can be.

As much as it was pretty obvious that I wanted to talk about Godzilla at length, I was very unhappy with how that Let’s Play went, so much so that I’ll probably stay away from doing Let’s Plays for awhile.

It’s kind of funny, those videos were supposed to be a time-saver for me, but in reality they ended up costing me more hours than sitting down and pounding out a written post.

Go figure.

KITTY.

In the past week or so, I’ve come to realize that movies and comics are easier for me to write about than videogames.

I love all 3 pretty much equally, however my writing is much more lucid when dealing with comics and movies.

I think part of the difficulty in writing about games for me, is the fact that most of the topics I choose to discuss are steeped in nostalgia.

Writing about things that happened 20 years ago can be difficult sometimes, so sue me.

What I mean to say is, don’t be surprised if, for a time, games kind of get shifted to background on this blog for awhile.

Anyway, thanks for all the views, keep reading!

I now leave you with the traditional celebratory Hokuto No Ken victory .gif:
