Open your damn eyes!
I’ve been really troubled by something lately. It just seems to me that no one pays any attention to detail anymore. Everyone is having a fit, all because they don’t take the time to read. At first I was a little annoyed by the moaning, but I thought to myself “they’ll catch on sooner or later.” Boy was I wrong. Nearly a day goes by that I don’t hear something about it, and frankly I’m sick of it.
Everclearonline is not gone, never was gone in fact. Some people are too busy clicking the back button, or posting on the White Lightning comment board asking what has happened to actually see the answer is right under their noses. I’ve heard about how our society’s attention span is supposedly dwindling, and how everyone wants instant results, but I never really saw the truth in this until now.
I have to admit getting into the site, is a bit tricky at first. They have you looking at a simple page that looks very close to ones we’ve all seen countless times before. But, maybe you all should take a closer look.
There, how was that difficult? It was right there the whole time. I’ll bet you feel a little slow for not catching that in the first place? Well, maybe you should. Seriously, I know I’m not the only one who found the link, so it’s can’t be that hard. Then again, there haven’t been that many of us that have found the link. I guess if you don't see it that must mean you're just not a big enough fan to get in. Shag has probably put in some wicked flash program that scans your hard drive for all your Everclear files, or maybe he has a database of how many albums you actually own, or if Art knows your name he puts access to the site on your computer. I don’t know, I’ve never been into computers so I have no idea how it works. Bottom line, if you haven’t been to ECO lately you are really missing out.
I’m not sure if I’ll get in trouble for this or not, but I’ve decided to give you all an inside look at the new hardcore Everclear fan only Everclearonline.com. I haven’t been told by anyone that I can’t do it, so here you all go:
YAY! You are either reading my source code, have very good eyesight, or have done the smart thing and copied this text into some form of a text editor. Anyways, now that you've read my column and taken it all in, I'd like you to do me a favor and take a look at the logo for my column, The Twistinside...the one with the silly picture of me (it was the worst picture I could find). While you look at it, you should notice the words "the truth" appears in there a couple of times. But each time the word is twisted, or stretched. You got it? No? Let me explain. It was all a joke.
Yes ECO was really taken down and isn't coming back in the forseeable future...sorry.
And for the record...Shag! sucked as a webmaster. His bloated pompous ego, and "look at me" methods outweight his talent and creativity. Think I'm being harsh. Go look at his other major site, http://www.cheaptrick.com and tell me if the design/layout he used on there looks a little familiar? No self respecting webmaster would use the same exact design twice for two unrleated sites. That's just laziness and uninspired workmanship.
