So I Was Going Through A Year Of Blog Emails

Yeah, I forgot to add the blog webmail app to my last two phones, so it’s been a while.

There were hundreds of unchecked emails, but only about twenty that I actually cared about. Those were the companies wanting me to write about their shit, or them wanting me to post something they wrote about their shit.

I responded to all of them except the eight that were absolutely a no go.

Of the twelve, one has responded back with affirmation of pure joy, but they were very good at not showing any emotion at all.

Coincidentally, they were the ones that I was most intrigued by. Mostly because of their offer. They were willing to give me a credit on their client’s website if I wrote about the product.

It is a site called Paperless Post.

They do e-cards and that sort of thing.

You can get simple.

Hey, if you’re going to drop a bomb on someone, make it a good one.

But why not go all out? They also have fancy shit.

As I looked around the site, I realised that I had absolutely no use for any of the products at the moment, but didn’t feel right about getting their hopes up and then saying I wasn’t interested.

You also can’t tell someone that you will write something for them and then take months, or most likely years, to actually get around to it. Especially when you command the attention of more than dozens of people.

So I have decided that I will let you all spend my credit frivolously.

That’s right.

Frivolously and with wanton abandon.

  1. Go to Paperless Post and pick out anything from their site, or I can pick something for you. (take a screenshot or get the name)
  2. Compose an email to birdman@changethetopic.com
  3. Send me the info and the email address you want the card sent to.
  4. Wait.
  5. Let me know what you thought of the lavish gift in a reply to the original email. Scale of 1-10 should be fine.
  6. At the end, we will tally up the site and collectively do a review.

They said the credit will be there within the next three days, so when it goes in, I will start the shitshowfestivities.

P.S. Bonus points for creativity.

I Wasn’t Very Responsible As A Young Adult

mindofbirdman

Apparently nobody told my aunt and uncle that back around 1999 or 2000, but it’s true. I didn’t really think very far ahead when it came to anything in those days.

I was reminded of this at my cousin’s fantastic wedding on the weekend.

We drank some beer and got to talking about the good old days, when talk came around to the time I took my cousin Addison for a ride around Lake Erie when I first started hauling cross-border freight.

Day 1

I think he was around nine or so, and had just finished school for the year. I had to pick up a load at the mine in Nephton, Ontario, and would be going relatively close to my aunt and uncle’s place on the way back. I gave them a call on my fancy Nokia phone. It was before the flip phones and it had that Snake game on it. You remember Snake, don’t you?

Wilfred Season 2 Bluray Giveaway

birdmandesk

Yep, Fox has said I could give a Bluray of Wilfred away to coincide with it’s release on DVD and Bluray later on in June. It’s open to people in Canada and the US, and they will ship it right to your door. If you have one. If not, it will come to wherever you tell them to send it.

When they got in contact with me I was all like, “I wonder what Wilfred is? Must be a mini-series about the life of Wilfred Brimley.” Then I remembered that he spells it “Wilford”. I looked it up on Wikipedia and thought it looked pretty cool, so I started watching season 1 online.

It’s fucking hilarious. Check out this 30 second clip. It doesn’t show the whole pelican scene, but you kind of get the gist. The dark humour is fantastic, and Frodo’s timing is bang on, as is that of Jason Gann, who plays Wilfred.

I seriously get short of breath, laughing at some of this show. It’s not for everyone, but if you don’t mind potty, drug, and sex humour, you should really enjoy this. I would watch season one while they are mailing this one to you. You’ll be happy you did.

Win a copy of WILFRED SEASON TWO
