10 years and 10,000+ posts old yesterday. The web creation of MetaFilter's own, quonsar and madamjujujive, Everlasting Blort, - a compendium of the web's weird underbelly, updated daily with links to the strange, absurd, bizarre, humorous.

Congrats!
The Presurfer also celebrated a 10 year anniversary this week.

Even as a regular web surfer of the weird with a jaded "seen-it-all" cynicism, the Blort continuously reminds me that there is always even weirder stuff out there to be sampled.

Had no idea blort or presurfer were from mefi's own; been going to both since long before I knew about the blue. Happy anniversaries!

nickyskye, thank you for this post. Ha, I was updating blort and noted quite a few visitors. So glad we cleaned the house! What a kick to get posted on mefi, thank you. And thanks for all the kind words and well wishes in thread. Can't think of anybody I would rather have at any birthday party than my mefi pals from whom I have gained so much. Cake and champagne all round!

quonsar told me he would be off to a wedding tonight - presumably not his own -- so he will be tickled when he is back. Blort is really his vision and his baby, he's just very generously let me be a squatter. And it it weren't for blort, I'd probably never have joined mefi, so full circle.

One of the best sites on the web, and source of at least a couple of my own posts at Metafilter. And mjjj is always worth reading here, and quonsar is really missed. Congratulations!

I'm gobsmacked that I didn't really know this existed. An mjjj MeFi post is pretty much required reading, as far as I'm concerned. Anyway, congrats to the two of you. Here's to years more blort!

never heard of this before but it's pretty outstanding.

Love the Blort. Happy Blortday!

You know what this is? This what boingboing.net might have been, if it had been a purer thing.

I pondered posting this last night when I first heard about it (Miss Cellania of Neatorama pointed to Presurfer's anniversary who pointed to Blort; MY internet has lots of fun names), but chickened out and just MetaChatted it.

So let me repeat for anyone who ignored me there: Ten continuous years on the Web is awesome (and I should know; I've had barely 5 active years in the almost 11 since I started blogging). HAPPY WEBBIRTHDAY!!!

Completing a ten-year stretch of "anything" in life is an accomplishment and something to be proud of. I hope the dynamic duo will be enjoying some well-earned satisfactions.

My compendium is also named Blort.

Completing a ten-year stretch of "anything" in life is an accomplishment and something to be proud of.

Especially when it's a ten-year stint in the joint for a string of bank robberies.

madamjujujive posts from the clink? My crush intensifies...

Much love to dear madamjujujive and quonsar! Thanks for many spit-upon monitors over the years!

I don't know what it means, but it's the greatest URL on the web. I like saying it, or just thinking about saying it. I've forgotten to read it though for about 5 years -- thanks for the reminder!

The images look like things that were on display in the art department of my high school. I hated that stuff.
posted by Yakuman at 4:05 AM on September 26, 2010


??? The images come from all over the internet. Icelandic landscapes, Japanese postcard art, a video about a 19th century robot, a 1960s blues singer, a make-your-own monster app, Richard Nixon family photos, etc., etc., ... all remind you of your high school art department? May I ask where you went to school? ;)

Wow, that is pretty darned excellent.

and this use of the quonsar tag didn't even lead to any bannination....

Cool site but I have to say I'm happy with quonsar over there not here. He was the reason I bailed from this place for a couple of years.

I just didn't want that rather ungracious remark to be the last comment in the thread. Hi again, q! Don't ever let 'em capitalize you!
