2007 has been a pretty good year for rubbercat.net and my other internet-related pursuits. Among the highlights:
If forecast projections are accurate (see attached charts), rubbercat.net should be able to make its first online acquisition sometime in the next fiscal year.
- I edited together a video, wonder years, and put it on YouTube. At one point it was #99 in the Top 100 comedy video for one day or something (I forgot what it was exactly and neglected to take a screenshot, so I have no proof). Somehow it made its way onto a now-defunct Wired blog.
- I made a page listing fake features of the Simpsons Movie DVD for my joke Simpsons site, which made the rounds through some corners of the Internet - mostly Simpsons and DVD message boards - including Frederator Studios Blog. It also made its way onto real movie site JoBlo, which thought it was real at first and then later posted a correction stating that even though the page had been "posted on a real SIMPSONS site," they had been had by an unfunny joke "that this dude thought would be hilarious."
- Somehow just having a Simpsons-related site makes you privy to the occasional e-mailed press release, which explains one I got from an NBC Universal PR Coordinator announcing the forthcoming Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios. Does that make me a member of the Fourth Estate?
- Since midyear, I've been a contributor to the Forum Fridays section of Something Awful. Basically, I read a message board about TV and then tell you what threads are worth checking out and make a few lame jokes. Even though it's not a widely-read section, being on the same webspace with people like internet funnyman Zack Parsons is humbling.
- My occasional Mallard Fillmore parody, Anthropomorphic Republican Duck, was rediscovered by SA forumgoers and it appears to have achieved its peak of popularity.
