Well here is Flashback Fridays Chapter 16, a weekly series of entertaining and fun flashbacks of blog posts I’ve written over the past 20 years of blogging. It’s surreal to consider that I’ve been blogging for 20 years.

Using the Wayback Machine to select a few old posts that we believe would be both interesting and humorous and to post them each week in this Flashback Fridays series. So, let’s take a look at what was going through my mind all those years ago.

When I was younger, I was such a nerd. Please use your discretion when reading these posts because I apparently used profanity a lot.

Let’s get to Flashback Fridays Chapter 16!

@ The Movies & American Idol Comment – Flashback Fridays Chapter 16

March 15th, 2005 by MacBros

Just finished watching the movie ‘Robots’ and have to say that I cannot resist a good CGI Animated movie. I liked the ending the best as it was pretty funny. But don’t get me wrong, the entire movie was good too. Can’t forget the part when the mother and father were making a baby. I’ll leave that for your minds to wonder. Once you see the movie you’ll laugh at that comment.

his wasn’t the best CG Movie I’ve seen but still gets a thumbs up. Take the kids out to this one. They’ll like it. I know one thing, I can’t wait for the DVD. I imagine that it will be full of extra features.

Now, my comment’s on American Idol tonight. What the f**k happened??!! Bo and Nadia are the only two contestants that have this show by the balls! As for the rest of the players, they may as well pack up and go the hell home. Their singing is sh*t.


Yup, the Robots movie wasn’t that bad. I remember posting these movie reviews and opinions and I would also include a homemade trailer that included the parts that I enjoyed. I did one on the movie 301 and the creators actually liked that post and linked to it from their official movie site.

As far as the American Idol shoot goes. Well, it is what it is right?

Neighbours From Hell AXED! – Flashback Fridays Chapter 16

March 16th, 2005 by MacBros

The demon child and its crack-hore mother are no longer going to be a problem after Tuesday. I called the landlord and he assured me that they are outta’ here on Tuesday


The landlord just asked me to cope with it for just a few more days, and I said,” Well I’ve put up with it this long, what’s another few days?” It’ll be nice to know that they’ll be gone in just a few short days, ahh yes, just a few – short – days.

I just pity the poor f**kers that end up having them as neighbours! Too bad for them, all I can say is f**k you,” and don’t come back now ya hear!” YEaaaa HAAAAA!!!!

PS: Don’t forget folks, Survivor is on tonight instead of Thursday!

Well, gotta jet.
c’ya l8r

It was so nice and quiet when that downstairs neighbour moved out. Sucks for the kid, but it wasn’t my kid and not my responsibility and I wasn’t about to suffer by losing sleep every night and having to do my job with lack of sleep. So don’t give me that, “But it’s a baby.” bullsh*t. I had a job that required me to be alert, and my job was at stake because the mother was a terrible parent.

Anyway, that’s why I’ll never live in another apartment again. Those days are behind me and I’ll never EVER live in a place like that again.

Unfortunately, although I’m not in an apartment and now living in a home with property, I still seem to have ended up with sh*tty neighbours who live too close to us and are absolute sh*t people. Garbage people have no respect or common sense. So now we’re trying to pay down bills so we can get a nice plot of land to put a house on and have NO neighbours around us. I’m just so sick of sh*tty people.

Survivor Palau – Flashback Fridays Chapter 16

March 16th, 2005 by MacBros

Bet cha’ didn’t see that coming!

Double tribal council and two voted out. The twist was that the people that won the challenge got to sit and eat while watching the losing team vote out another person after their tribal council. But twist two was that the winning team gave immunity to one of the other team members.

That screwed them up big time because the person that got the immunity was the one they were planning to vote out. It ended with a tie. I’ll leave the rest to the people that can’t watch it yet. Don’t wanna spoil it too much!

Ahh, f**k it. Angie and Willard are OUT!


LOL! Back then I would post my opinions about that night’s Survivor episode. Unlike now where I will post about it the day after so the entire coast would have the chance to watch it before seeing my spoilers.

Yes I am a Survivor fan, don’t judge me!

404 error? – Flashback Fridays Chapter 16

March 17th, 2005 by MacBros

You probably got one of those 404 error pages if you’ve tried to view the site between 10 am and 10:30 am (Atlantic Time). I had to do some defragmenting and cleaning of the hard drive. Puters have been acting badly and slowly.

I’m home sick today so I thought what better time to do this?

Seem to have caught some sorta stomach bug. Threw up a lot this morning and last night. I’ll spare you all the details, so I’ll leave it at that. I was just sick.

My f**ken attendance at work is going down the f**ken drain. The thing is I’m not calling in sick all the time it’s because of that f**ken b*tch downstairs that’s been the problem these past few months. But thank the gods that she’s outta here on Tuesday!

Well, I have a few things to do, besides making them trips to the bathroom to talk to the great white telephone.

If you haven’t been following the Flashback Friday posts, I used to run my own server to host my blog back then. I did this for a while before purchasing a hosting provider to host my WordPress CMS.

I ran an Apache server and created my own CM at the beginning of my blogging adventure. I later installed Movable Type on it when I found out about it.

The thing is, that server was also my personal desktop computer and after a bit, it would get slow and I would have to do some things like disk defragging, registry cleaning, Geeky words here, and stuff.

I remember that I would get sick a lot at that job. People who came in sick there weren’t very hygienic and everything they touch would become a petri dish of viruses. Even though I would be always washing my hands, I somehow would always catch the bug of the week there. Don’t miss that hell hole!

T.G.I.F.F !!! – Flashback Fridays Chapter 16

March 18th, 2005 by MacBros

Thank f**k it’s Friday!

What a day at work. Seems like everything that could go wrong, did just that – Went wrong! My computer freezes up, and losing sales because of this **ken policy we have to follow to protect the customer’s information, Go figure ey’

If people can’t verify their account we cannot continue, so the stupid idiots have to go fetch a wife or husband, or both (not going to go there). So they end up having to call back, f**king up my call-back ratio.

And then there are the dumbasses that don’t read their bills before going into a freaking panic and dialling the first phone number they see on their bill. Just to be told they have to call the f**ken company that is charging them! Then they have to call us to let us know what is going to happen. Affecting my call-back ratio even more!

And THEN there’s them a**holes that call in complaining about a f**ken 0.03 cent tax charge on their bill. Call BUSH!! Not me! And these are usually the bastards that are getting an $8.00 a month phone bill! If I was getting phone service for $8 f**ken dollars, I would keep my f**ken mouth shut in case I open somebody’s eyes up that may correct it and make it higher. F**ken tight-ass mother f**kers!

Like a co-worker said to me the other day. “They’ll b*tch about a rate increase of $4.00, but don’t have a problem buying 4 extra televisions for each of their rooms.” (well something like that anyway)
People complain about the dumbest things. Complain about more important things! Like the price of beer going up or something – geez!

I heard from a source from work about something that both pisses me off and makes me kinda happy. I can’t get into detail about it but there’s a client coming in that I think that we will enjoy working with. Without stepping on toes and getting people in trouble and having the sh*t hit the fan. All I can say is my fingers are crossed and hoping they’ll need a couple of vets on the program and come to me.


Just going to chill out tonight, play some ISketch and listen to some tunes

OH, that sh*t show of a company. I needed the job because of bills, and the need to eat and stuff. But I am so glad they went under. Garbage company run by garbage people. (No I wasn’t scamming people, LOL!) Not those types of garbage people.

Their sh*tty system failures affected our work and our job performance reviews and they never accounted for that in the end, so yeah, sh*tty company. Their customers were just as bad.

Unfortunately, the new company was another sh*ttier version of the last one. I just couldn’t catch a break.
