Well here is Flashback Fridays Chapter 7, 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 7!

Crazy Web Cam Acts!

December 18th, 2004 by MacBros

You may see me do strange things in my Sweat Pants Playing Jedi Wannabe.
Well, that’s it. I’m rehearsing for another one.
I’m going to try my luck at being a Staff user with a pistol. At least this way I can look as bad. Well, look anyway…
I’m just going through different ways I can look actually….
I’m going to incorporate the clone wars. I’ll be fighting myself.
I’m laughing already…
Stay tuned for that one.
It’ll be a long time doing this one so WAIT!!

LOL! This must have been another one of my drunken ideas for a new video. It’s apparent that this video never came to be. I can remember making Jedi Wannabe because I wanted to try out rotoscoping in Adobe Premier back then. Check it out… LOL! Be kind, this was a first attempt. Unfortunately, I saved it in the old FLV Format and no longer have the RAW data to redo it in a higher resolution. Not confident that I would want to though, heh heh.

Letter From Santa

December 21st, 2004 by MacBros

Dear Friend,

I have been watching you very closely to see if you have been good this year and since you have I will be telling my elves to make some goodies for me to leave under your tree at Christmas. I was going to bring you all gifts from the 12 days of Christmas, but we had a little problem.

The 12 fiddlers fiddling have all come down with VD from fiddling with the 10 ladies dancing, the 11 lords leaping have knocked up the 8 maids a-milking, and the 9 pipers piping have been arrested for doing weird things to the 7 swans a-swimming.

The 6 geese a-laying, 4 calling birds, 3 French hens, 2 turtle doves, and the Partridge in a pear tree have me up to my sled runners in bird sh*t.

On top of all this! Mrs. Claus is going through menopause, 8 of my reindeer are in heat, the elves have joined the gay liberation and some people who can’t read a calendar have scheduled Christmas for the 5th of January.

Maybe next year I will be able to get my sh*t together and bring you the things you want. This year I suggest you get your asses down to K-mart before everything is gone.


LOL! Surprisingly they’re bringing back K-Marts here in Canada after they shut them all down many years ago. Poor Santa though right? He’s in for a huge surprise when the ‘woke’ turn him into a trans-non-binary Drag Queen Elf the way things are headed these days.

MT Upgrade

December 21st, 2004 by MacBros

Just installed the new upgrade from Movable Type. (Version 3.14 Copyright? 2001-2004 Six Apart. All Rights Reserved. )
If you notice any problem commenting or anything let me know. This upgrade is to help from getting floods of comment spam.

Thank you.

OH! Wow! I completely forgot that I started off using Movable Type when I first started blogging. Do people even still use that CMS? Wow, I can’t even remember using it at all. My memory is fading it seems. I don’t know how long I used that platform before I switched over to WordPress permanently.

Wow! The things you completely forget about and when you are reminded, it completely blows your mind.

Merry F**ken’ Bah Ha!

December 23rd, 2004 by MacBros

Well, this is the last day of work as we’re off tomorrow because of the Holidays. Yup after today I have to dread the following three days. I cannot stand this time of year because it’s got way too commercial now. There should be an age limit for this event now. So if you are over 13 or 14 years old you’re told the hard facts that Santa doesn’t exist and the whole marketing strategy behind it all. There would be less depression in the world what with people jumping off bridges and all.

I just hate the fact that you’re pressured to spend your last buck on a materialistic object just to give it to somebody else. “Here you go honey, I bought you a new scarf and gloves. We’ll have to go hungry for the week because I’m broke now. But them gloves and that scarf will keep you warm because the heat is going to be shut off” PFFfffffffft!

I’m going to be Mr. Scrooge this year (Again) I’m actually paying my bills instead of all this x-mas crap. I live in a family of adults and I wish they would all agree that as far as passing around gifts go, you can forget it. I feel bad that I didn’t get anything, but under the circumstances, I just can’t afford it. Thanks to Pothead of a brother. (We won’t get into that).

So this is my Holiday Rant!
I hate Xmas! If you don’t like it, “F**k Off!”

Peace Out!

Err. wow! I do hate the commercialism of the holiday. I don’t mind the decorations we do around the home outside. But I do think that the idea of buying a grown-ass adult something that they can get for themselves any time of the year is silly. Me: “Here, I bought you this thing.” Them: “Oh, thanks. Now I don’t have to buy this thing.”

Leave it for the kids.

Damn! I’m Bored

December 23rd, 2004 by MacBros

Sitting here, looking off into space.. *sniff sniff*, what the f**c? Ooooooo, my socks stink! Blech! Just a sec….

Ahhh, there we go. Damn, that was terrible! Where was I? Oh yea, sitting here looking off into space… nothin’ to do and a beer in my hand. Off tomorrow, but can’t do too much because I’m broke. Just managed to get a few groceries and an 8-pack of beer. Yea! Beer is a Grogery item and is a necessity! Well, I think so anyway.

It was a warm day today, and they’re calling for a heavy-rainfall warning for this evening. ( Who are ‘THEY’ anyway? Just wondering ) The rain should melt all that white snow away, ( Note to self: Find out if snow falls in any other color but white ). I hate snow! I also hate rain too. But I hate cold even more. I hate when TV is boring, I hate people who stick their noses in other people’s business. I hate people that pick their noses, I hate people that pick other people’s noses even more. Where is this going? I don’t f**cen know…. Let’s continue shall we?

At work today we did absolutely jack sh*t! We made Christmas Cards for the other classes in the center (Yea I know it sounds immature doesn’t it?). I did the drawing on the front just so I wouldn’t have to present it. I didn’t think they wanted anything fancy so I quickly drew a bunch of Holley in each corner and a wreath in the center with, “Merry Christmas” in the center. Then I just sat on my ass playing with my laser pointer while the rest of the group made up some sh*tty poem to go on the inside.

Turns out the other groups went CRAZY and made these really creative cards. Damn I felt so cheap, (But hey it’s me, Mr. Scrooge remember!??) Anyway that’s about what we did today, and that made me remember my drawings and paintings I’ve done and don’t have on my website. So I’ll be adding them to the gallery later.

I mentioned playing with my laser pointer, now you dirty-minded folks can rest assured that I’m not going to start talking about my penis. The web page isn’t long enough for that topic. OH DID I JUST SAY THAT???!!! HA HA!

Anyway, it’s a real laser that I used to play with a cat that I used to have, he’d run all over the place and up the walls. I miss that cat, had a personality that I thought was kewel. I’ve been thinking about getting a kitten to keep me company since I can’t get a hot money bags beauty to move in. (Females need only apply)

Now you perverts out there don’t go thinking them strange and gross thoughts. The cat is just for a friend, I like cats. Plus I don’t think this place allows dogs and I don’t want to walk a mutt every f**cen night. A cat will take care of itself, aside from feeding itself.

Yall’ know how I feel about this weekend so I won’t go into that. (Hum Bug) So I’ll end up adding my pictures to my gallery and installing this game a guy from work gave me. cough copy cough cough. So I’ll leave you on your way.


Seems I blogged like the reader was in the same room as me. Didn’t really have a filter either it seems. I guess it takes about 20 years to mature enough to filter yourself a little bit. I try and be less of a potty mouth when writing these days. That’s not to say that I won’t say what’s on my mind though. I’m not one for sparing people’s feelings who don’t deserve it.

Flashback Fridays Chapter 7 Conclusion…
