Thoughts on House of Pain lyrics and the Sega Dreamcast that you may or may not find interesting, depending on how much you like rap and video games

"Trying to play me out like as if my name was Sega"

That's a line from House of Pain's 1992 hit, Jump Around. At the time, there were two big video game console companies, Sega and Nintendo. The choice to reference Sega instead of Nintendo might have been influenced by the edgier image that Sega had at the time with their console, the Genesis. It might also have something to do with finding a rhyme for the preceding line -- there's not that much that rhymes with Schwarzenegger. The next line, "but I ain't going out like like no punk bitch" was moving onto a different thought, but come 2001, it took on another meaning. Sega's system at the time, the Dreamcast, was struggling in its competition with the PlayStation 2, the GameCube, and the Xbox, so they announced that they were throwing in the towel. They ceased production and gave up the console business, deciding to stick to making software for other companies' systems. Sega, in the end, went out not unlike a punk bitch. Prophetic words from Everlast and House of Pain.

If you wanted to know what search terms and posts were most popular in 2006, this is the post for you

The top post of the year goes to the one about Ashlee Simpson with the Cheaper By the Dozen 2 one a distant second. People who went to the first one were probably just looking for before/after pictures of Ashlee, I'll be damned if I can figure out why people were searching for a smarmy looking picture of Steve Martin.

Least popular post goes to:

A list of things that people seem to find hilarious, but I either never did or have gotten sick of for various reasons. I was always pretty sure no one cared what I found funny, but now I know it for a fact.

Now here are the top eight search terms for last year. My comments to the people searching for those things follow.

1. minnie mouse porn -- Good god, this is the number one search term for my site, and I'm at the top of the list on google. I don't mind you searching for porn, but try to keep it to porn that might possibly exist.
2. diogenes club -- Sadly, I'm #4 on google for this one. #1-#3 actually talk about Diogenes Club, the cheaters.
3. will carlough -- I used to have #1 on google for this, now it's been usurped by my myspace page. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
4. margaret cho sucks -- My post about Margaret Cho sucking was on of the first ones I ever wrote, I'm not even sure why I was mad at her anymore.
5. at june 17 2005 -- What happened on June 17, 2005 and what's it got to do with me? Seriously.
6. green leotards -- People need their green leotards, I guess.
7. ashlee simpson -- I should probably just give people what they want and make this an Ashlee Simpson fan site.
8. karate jokes -- Man, I'm only #10 on google for this one. I've got to come up with some more karate jokes. Or I'll just type karate jokes a bunch of times here. Karate jokes are karate jokes and there was this one karate joke that was a karate joke. Karate jokes.

There are a lot of terms that only got a few people here that are worth noting:
why is wario mean to mario, 1 person -- Because Mario picked on him when they were younger. Mario started it, look it up if you don't believe me.
jason statham and hotels in kent he stays at, 2 people -- You are creepy and you have bad taste in people to stalk.
you are a idiot, 2 people -- No, you are a idiot.
fuck club, 3 people -- I wouldn't let you in, even if this were one. Which it might be, you'll never know.

Hoo. It was a heck of a year. More as it comes. Oh yeah, and karate jokes.

Mini Comment Roundup

A new commenter has set the new record for most comments in the smallest amount of time. So I wanted to do a special mini comment roundup for the Club's newest friend, Tony Suriani.

He started off at 01:28 AM commenting on the old praying for the pope post:

Hey Valentina, we have the same last name......Cool?!?!
Posted by: TONY SURIANI at January 5, 2007 01:28 AM

I won't include Valentina's comments here, you can read them for yourself, but they were basically an angry rant against Christianity, and I'm fairly certain Valentina hasn't and won't ever come back to check on people who commented after her. So I apologize, Tony. Hopefully you'll find some other way to find your long lost relative.

Two minutes later, Tony's back for more:

Might as well plug my buisness while im here:

Note the alternate capitalization of his name this time. At this point, Tony did what very few people who just drop into the site for a comment or two do, which is look at other posts. Three minutes later he commented on the post about Ford's obit in the Times:

Dont really understand that question, or sorry, comment.

Posted by: TONY SURIANI at January 5, 2007 01:33 AM

He may be replying to the original post, but I think he's replying to Eddie's comment about Ford having to fill Spiro's shoes. I usually don't explain other people's comments to people, but I'll make an exception just this once. You see Tony, Spiro Agnew was Ford's predecessor as Vice President. That's pretty much all you need to know. Also note that Tony's back to his all caps style on his name.

Two minutes later, he digs up this post about a dream I had in high school:

Oooffff, That was REALLY stupid.

Posted by: TONY SURIANI at January 5, 2007 01:35 AM

Ouch, Tony, it was just a dream I had in high school, cut me some slack. So, that's all from Tony for now. Hopefully he won't be like his cousin Valentina and come back and comment some more.
