Hey, now!

I've got 116 subscriptions in my feed reader. I just checked.

All kinds of good stuff. Seventy or so personal blogs. A bunch of sports sites, mostly baseball. Some stuff for politics. Some stuff for films. A bunch of beer review sites. There is even a site on there that only discusses the future of the newspaper business. Lots of different sites.

But there are two subscriptions that pop up that never fail to surprise me. Mostly because I forget they are in there some times. I have them filed under a folder called "Sex".

The first is the personal blog of porn star Joanna Angel. I don't believe I've ever seen one of her movies, but I could be wrong. She a cute little tattooed freak and she is funny and intelligent. I tend to look past her industry and focus on the extreme fun she is having with life on an everyday basis. Think what you will about porn, but she seems to have her priorities straight.

The second is from columnist, editor, sex chronicler and long-time crush Violet Blue. I think hers may have been the very first blog I habitually would read on the Web. I think she also recommended Joanna Angel's blog as well. She is smart and funny and cute as hell. And she's a tech geek so she's very cool.

The shock value comes from the fact that both of these blogs are often NSFW. I'll wake up and start scrolling through the new posts that popped up in my feed reader since the day before. Personal blog, personal blog, baseball post, beer post, personal blog, beer post, personal blog, personal blog, something about politics, etc...

When all of a sudden...wham! There's a pretty lady using a vegetable in an interesting way. Or wham! There's a video of a Japanese hardcore sex competition with all the naughty bits pixeled out. Or wham! Nekkid pics from the Gay Porn Awards. Stuff like that last one usually have me scrolling down faster than usual. And no. "Scrolling down" isn't a euphemism for anything masturbatory. Some of you might dig gay porn. I'm not hear to judge you. Well, I am here to judge some of you. You know who you are.

Anywho, it got me to wondering. Do we all have stuff like this on our feed readers? How about you? Do you have something that occasionally shocks you for a moment on your feed reader when it, um, pops up?

I mean, besides Adam's balls.

That is a very good question. My feed reader is mostly running blogs, yours of course, slyde.

But no nothing too risque or shocking on mine. Perhaps, I need to remedy that!!!

HAPPY HUMP DAY!!!

The only thing in my feedreader that shocks me is that Adam's blog is STILL there. Ba-da-bump. Thaank you, I'll be here all week folks.

Michelle - yeah, um, those beer blogs can be, um, interesting. :)

Faiqa - Whassamatta? Didn't agree with his stance on the sex appeal of pregnant women? Yeah, me neither.

Adam - hmmm, do I play? Of course I will. ;)

B.E. Earl said...

Adam - that's a good one, but the shock value wouldn't be apparent in the feed reader because all the NSFW pics are in the form of links.

Slyde said...

the only weird blog that i still read for SOME reason is this one....

New York City's Watchdog said...

I have a few... like the Glamour Photography Apprentice.

It's a shame you don't Twitter... there's a bunch of porn stars on there and they are fucking FUNNY as all hell.

i am the diva said...

i wish i had something more shocking.... maybe i should subscribe to more things...

Heff said...

Thanks a million for Adam's balls.

Besides Adam's nutsack peeking out from under a t-shirt, not much shocks me from my feed reader. Most of the 70 or so feeds I follow are more informative than anything.

Elise said...

I rarely feel shocked anymore... ~sigh~ xx

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - shocking!

Dawg - that's about the best reason I've heard to Twitter. Still not gonna do it though. ;)

Diva - hey your site has shocked on occasion, Rock Chick. ;)

Heff - it's the new Rick Roll.

Marty - most of my feeds are for fun. Different strokes, I guess.

Elise - it's out there. You just have to work it.
