|Mr. Tito has gone mad!! He's
gone insane, he's going crazy!!
Well, no actually, this is just a new column by the maker of the Phat Daily Column. It's a brand new and uncensored column in which I will rip the hell out of anything and everything. If there's anything in the wrestling world that Mr. Tito doesn't especially like, then it becomes a prison to my mental wrath. I will also have a re-butal to e-mail. Watch what you say or you could end up on the Phat Choping Block. Now onto the Show!
|You like apples? How about some more apples? Welcome back to another unfortunate edition of BAD TITO. Lots of truth in these columns, as I bitch about what comes straight from my own thoughts and feelings. So if you ain't down with that, then suck it and stop reading. Take your computer, point it sideways...wait a second, I find myself imitating repeated phrases in the WWF. Oh, my bad.
A couple random thoughts this week: Looking around the net anymore, I continually see the same news, the same features, and the same reporters even on all of the pages? Why? Nothing original to accomplish in the internet world anymore. No new, but exclusive reporters anymore. Also, all news is stolen or miscredited, but everyone uses the same sources. So what new is there to accomplish?
That's what I was thinking. Looking at easily the most entertaining opinion site on the net, Wrestling Uncensored, I see that they have said there is nothing to accomplish anymore. Nothing new, nothing original. It's all been done, or has it? Each and everyday I churn out the columns, and I have had problems getting new original features. Features that made my column what it is today like the Monday Night Grades, Phat Statsİ, Factoids(which I keep forgetting about), and Ratings Analysis are features that seem to have stuck for my column. Sure, I'll throw an occasional feature on the PDC, but I can't do that often because I'll suffer burn out. Not that I'm whining, as I enjoy my column job, but I'm just stating, "what is there to accomplish?"
As for internet sites. I keep seeing "BRAND NEW WEB DESIGN!!!" everyweek on certain pages. For one, once you get used to how a site runs and operates, you are prone to work with their new design. Plus, those spanking new designs take a while to load if you haven't noticed. Webmasters really need to notice that fans don't really care as much about web design as they do about getting their news quickly. It's just funny when I go to one of those 'super design' sites, and I get to sit her staring at the screen wondering when the page will load. Simply retarded. Besides, what new innovative designs have there been? I sure as hell haven't seen anything that has impressed me.
As for news. Well, everyone is in the mood to steal news these days, whether it be hotline reports or news articles. Just read Bad Tito #3 for my take on the hotlines, but the news articles I really find it funny. I recently was told where to find them, and now I search for them all of the time for news. I just love how those news articles, once posted on LoP then find their way on to other sites. Of course, if we didn't post it, then others wouldn't have posted it, just like if a hotline caller didn't call a hotline, then many others don't get motivated to call the hotlines. Isn't that ironic?
As for reporters. Well, I continually see the same reporters everywhere. But hey, many of those reporters just post everywhere to get their site 'over'. It seems rather odd, but if you have a site that needs hits, it seems like the right thing to do, right? Whatever the case may be, those who post on many pages are what many refer to as Board Whores. Yes, that's what I said. They are on every board, providing the same news that you could find on another site with the same reporter! Of course, I do know the feeling. When I first began writing the columns, I posted for 7 sites. Then I realized that posting on too many boards wears columns out. You've seen it one place, then you don't need to see it everywhere else.
|I realized that, and I cut it down to 2 sites, Lords of Pain and Top-Rope. It has done wonders for my column by chopping down sites where I used to post at. I get a little more respect now, and if you need to read my column, you know where to find me. Others, who are very good reporters/columnists who still post on a lot of sites wonder why they don't get respect that they feel. Why? Because they board whore everywhere, thus, they get no respect because they overexpose what they do. I hope a few of those 'board whores' understand what I mean.
So what do I make of the internet these days? Well, I still think it's pretty strong as far as wrestling is concerned. Some people really bust their ass to provide you with wrestling knowledge. I think a bad problem was the boom of internet sites last year. Many sites came out, thus overexposing news. Everywhere you look, you see a wrestling newsboard! That's part of the problem, and there are many other things, like I said up top, like accomplishing something new. Oh well. I'll just continue to provide my news and views in my column, and I'll try to continue to keep it original as possible. But of course, I'll still have fun at doing it.
That's it for today's edition. Wow, no swearing for me today. Fuck! There, you happy now? I hope this edition of Bad Tito makes some sense to you, but if not, why not read it again? :)
Dangerous with an opinion,
Because too much internet politics is bad for your health.
