I've been noticing images that I've captured on other sites, especially with the return of ANTM. Great! It's not as though I own the actual source material, and I take them for all to enjoy, anyway. Use them however you see fit. Re-post them. Photoshop them. Print them out and fold them into fans. But please -- and I can't believe that I have to post this reminder like some stern 1st grade teacher with a heart of copper -- don't forget to link here and credit my carpal-tunnel-afflicted, crumpled up hands. Seriously, bitches, how hard is it to hyperlink? Not hard at all. In fact, I've never done anything easier in my life. Seriously, my lungs are like, "Damn, we shoulda taken up hyperlinking because it's a breeze compared to breathing."
It's not even that it's a matter of respect; it's that not doing so is a matter of flagrant disrespect because it's so fucking easy. (And I'm mostly talking to you LiveJournal mutants -- I know your ways are different than us plain, ol' bloggers but politeness is universal.) While impoliteness drives me crazier than crushed cockroaches with still-twitching appendages (including -- and I'm self-inducing nausea here -- antennae) do, Winston is full-blown pissed. When I caught him up to speed on this issue, here's how he responded:
He eats cockroaches for breakfast.
I wish that weren't true. Really.
Anyway, I know that I could start to stamp my shots, but god, that sucks for everyone (including me). I don't want to have to do this . . .
. . . or even this easily cropped-out "fix". . .
And I don't think anyone wants me to have to do this . . .
So wise up, or there gonna be some uglay, uglay changes 'round here.
And now, since I'm always one to shoot myself in the foot for comic effect, here are more screen caps! Via email, ANTM fan Laura requested that I "include a still from ANTM of James St. James skipping down the street in his clown dress." She said "pretty please," and for that slice of politeness, here are five shots of James St. James skipping down the street in his clown dress. It isn't hard to win me over, guys.
And while I'm meta, check out how someone found fourfour last week (click the pop-up if you're having trouble reading the query field):
Covering Being Bobby Brown has turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving. This is where broken hearts go.
Finally, speaking of ganking other sites' images, I'ma do that right now. Check out who's hypothetically stealing my hypothetical heart away from Bre, single-paw-edly:
