Words and Numbers 109/ Bill rocks it, a failed experiment, odd bits
Posted on September 7, 2012
I tried an experiment on the last blog and then tried again. I wanted readers to listen to the same song by two different artists. I’d set up a place where they could vote for their favorite. I downloaded the music from Rhapsody and when the link was clicked it went to a Rhapsody site and a play button. The play button didn’t respond. I’m going to try again this time using Windows and Polldaddy, same two songs and same three choices. I left a third choice for people who disliked both versions.
I’m addicted to baseball. There were no games on tonight and I’m jonesing. The bats, Louisville Sluggers are attacking and I’m hearing Mel Allen announce another Yankee homer. It’ll be better tomorrow. Hope against hope for an afternoon game. What really made it worse was TruTV changed the Thursday schedule, no more Smoking Gun’s Dumbest whatevers, my look into people I really know mean well but get me laughing when the fail. They replaced the shows with Impractical Jokers, a show about four guys who get; one another to do stupid stuff. Can’t get into it.
Let’s try again: It’s fucking hopeless. I can’t get information. All I want to do is post audio links and a poll. This whole idea isn’t worth the frustration and anger. The blog is an extended disjointed dive into my brain that nobody reads or comments on. I’m talking to myself. I was an ass for thinking something I tried would work. This is the dumbest thing I’ve done. I need time off. I tried and failed. Again and again.
