Blog Bash Beeswax

So ever since I started this blog thing a week ago I've been getting angry emails and some grumpy comments for different reasons.

Like, people got mad at me for bashing Dark Knight. Like I'm some kind of wang who doesn't know how to watch a movie correctly. Like I wrote bad stuff about it just to be a jerk and peed on a masterpiece for fun. I wish I loved that movie. Believe me.

People got upset because I typed a really long post about how I screwed up going to the midnight showing. Telling me I write too much with too many words. It was a long story! What was I supposed to do!

When I typed this jokey thing about going out to dinner with a bunch of people I got accused of being a snob who judges people. I just sort of felt the whole thing was a goof. I don't think the person who gets their entree last is a "loser". I'm usually that guy! And it's not like I'm going out to 'dinner parties' all the time by the way. (I guess I typed it all vague like I go to them all the time because I didn't want to offend the people I recently went out with if they decide to read my blog. Apologies to them if I did. I wasn't talking about you.) And no, I'm not secretly rich btw.

Also people don't like this summer blog thing at all. They think the whole site is confusing now and they miss the daily stuff or whatever. Sorry bout that but I just need a little downtime to catch up and this helps.

So I just wanted to say apologies if I've offended you in some way by how I write or what I write or what I'm not doing or whatever. I just type stuff that comes into my head from the things I do and the stuff I see and how I see it. So there.

It's hard for me because I do want this to be a good vibes place and I guess I'll admit it gets to me when people get upset just by coming here. It really is just me sitting in my apartment with my dog so maybe I do go mental from time to time. And it has been all humid lately and I've been sweaty.

I'll try to be more open minded with fun and less "wordy" I guess. Maybe this post was too wordy too?

Good vibes to y'all!

ok bye!
tOdd

PS. Yes, I know the Ducky Duck site is all clunky this year!! It's not my fault and I don't know why it's all changed! I complained to them alot. But very much thanks to the people who joined the team!

I've said it before and I'll say one more effin' time. Tell em to get their own damn blog if they don't like what you write. Yes your Dark Knight review sucked, but its your damn review and your opinion. You work too hard (in a lazy kinda way) to listen to ppl complain about stuff thats noncomplaintworthy.

I probably provide half the traffic to your site just checking to see if you have posted new stuff. I want to make a living off creative blogging like you, but just one and I am tapped out for months. How do you make a living anyway? I havent given you any money (I did buy your book though). Freelancing must pay really well. I liked your Dark Knight review, I did not like the Hellboy review about Dark Knight though.

I agree (in spirit) with the poster that is sick of you apologizing for your website, or for apologizing for offending someone. ENOUGH! This is YOUR site, YOUR opinion, YOUR work, YOUR time and YOUR money to support it. Just say whatever the hell you feel about Dark Knight, chicks with poor math skills, drunk dicks or whatever. You owe NO ONE an explanation for your humor or your opinion. Hell I can't stand the constant Roscoe talk on your site. I also hate the time it takes to get new toons. But that's just to god-damned bad for me isn't it? No one forces me or any one else to visit this site. Post what you want as you see fit. The complainers are just a drop in the bucket in proportion to the huge volume of traffic your site sees. In short...F**K 'EM. No more apologies to thin-skinned whiners.

And seriously, who gets pissed off because someone else doesn't like a movie? Does that somehow detract from your experience? That is just pathetic.

I have been on your site for the past 3 years or so, and must say I also am kinda disappointed about what it has become. You used to be the witty cartoon creator that made me laugh even when my day may have not been positive. But I dunno, now I haven't seen one new cartoon in a good while. Your site has just become one of those blogs in a never ending sea of bloggieness. Is it possible that you can go back to what made your site good in the first place?

Todd, I've been coming to your site almost since you started it. It's great. Has it changed? Sure. Everything evolves. Do you post long blogs? Sure. But they aren't ridiculously long. Not like you are posting novels. If people don't have the attention span to finish one of your blogs that isn't your fault. You have something to say and if that takes more than one paragraph to convey then so be it. I'm not sure what people are expecting from your site but I'm never disappointed. Keep up the good work Todd. Maybe you'll weed some of the viewers out and be left with those that truly appreciate your site for what it is...entertainment.

I can certainly understand that you feel under attack. I don't get those attacky people but, whatever. Frankly I think your "long" discussions are usually funnier than your shorts (or your PJs for that matter). It gives you time to build momentum. I was laughing out loud at your attempt to go to the late night showing of THE movie. Um, and...isn't the point of movie reviews that there are differing opinions? If we all felt the same why bother. You, like all creative people have your highs and lows. The writings I don't like, I breeze over and the ones I do, I savor. What you do takes a lot of effort and I appreciate it. Thank you.

Hey Todd...
Look, what it comes down to, and the reason you have an audience with your website is that you're a funny guy. And people that don't have a sense of humor tend to be rude, stupid and obnoxious.
You have a great thing going, you're making a living being yourself on a website and doing rad tv freelance appearances!
I know it's not always possible, but try glossing over negative comments.
Your website is addicting. Keep doing exactly what you're doing, and don't apologize ever again.

Dear tOdd,

I agree with what the majority of people said: it is your blog/website, write whatever you want. Have faith! Bee positive! To those people who complain that you are too wordy; they are not going to get far in life if they can not read beyond the first few sentences of anything. No, being wordy is good. It explores your ability as a writer. Only by practice (at writing) will you grow. And I think you are a very good writer. You are an entertainer in so many areas: an animation cartoonist, a contest provider, a writer, a daily and weekly content provider, a photographer, an artist... you do it all, tOdd!

I wanted to share with you the four types of people who write to internet celebrities like Odd tOdd.


The detestable jerks:

These people are known as trolls. They only provide negative feedback to get an emotional rise out of you. This category of person can be wholly and completely ignored since you already know their shtick.


The jerk trying to be helpful:

This type of jerk provides mostly negative feedback like: "you should have done this" or "you should have done that." Basically they are trashing your site in the name of helpfulness. They lack imagination of their own to see why what you actually wrote is actually funny.


The indifferent jerk:

These people don't care what happens to you either way. They consider it all entertainment, good or bad. They are very unlikely to do anything, including email you.


The true fan:

These people enjoy your site the most, but probably write in the least. When you changed your format to the blog, they said nothing. Instead, all you got was negative feedback from the other jerks. Therefore you were tricked into thinking that no one liked your new site. But then the true fans come. They stick up for you. They encourage you to continue. They remind you why people like your site. They are the people who have written the highest percentage of posts on this blog entry. These are the people you are doing it for, tOdd, the people who love you!


Love,
~Z

I come to your site because it is funny... you don't take yourself too seriously, and you don't take life too seriously... screw those people who can't take a joke...

i thought the thing about the dinner party personalities was hilarious... most of us can recognize a verbal "caricature" when we see one... and i know that i have been a few of those people you described from time to time...

if my friend was the "no entree loser", i would totally laugh at him (with a Nelson quote from Simpsons... "ha-ha!")... in a friendly way, of course... and i would expect my friends to do the same to me.

Also... i haven't seen Dark Knight yet, but i did enjoy your thorough review... i can't believe people think your posts are too wordy!... it takes less than a minute or two to read your posts... it's not like you are writing a frickin' novel about everything... are people's attention spans that short these days?

ok, i admit that sometimes i am lazy and i don't feel like reading your whole movie review if it is a movie that i don't really care about... but in that case i will just read the 3 good things & 3 bad things part... so that is a really cool feature.

don't change a thing... it's your blog... i am glad that you are able to share it with us...

I would like to say I have been coming to your site for a good five years now, it has been my home page for most of those years. but...

Lately (within the last year or two) it has become more about YOU, which is coool... but what I'm saying is I miss Odd Todd, I miss the cartoon YOU, I think things like "whats happening" and "Roscoe Cam" have made things too personal. But please take these comments with a grain of salt, as everyone else has said it is YOUR site. But I think you also need to remember why you made the site in the first place... and maybe that reason has changed, which is sad to me.

Anyway Todd, Good vibes to you and Roscoe, I will continue to visit your site everyday until you shut it down.

Cheers from Nova Scotia!

Why would someone read something and then complain about it? Are they forced to read everything you write? Is there a draft here I am not aware of? If you don't want to read my comment, don't read it. If I don't want to read a post that looks like something I may not want to read, I won't read it. That said, I usually get a good laugh from your posts, Todd. And that is why I choose to read them. I say well done. To me your site is a highlight during dreary days of working.
PS. If you want my job you can have it. I'm about 3 minutes from walking out, changing into a blue robe and eating fudge stripes for about 6 months.

You are awesome. Sometimes people are goofy. And opinionated. And grumpy. YOU however, are freakin' hilarious, and I look forward to reading anything you write. You can write about phonebooks and make it interesting...(wait a minute, didn't you do that already??) I like the bloggy blog. There. Nice things said (and meant!)Keep up the good work, and remember for every grumpy person there are 10 more who love what you do for us!

It's absolutely the troof that Dark Knight was too long, sagged just about anytime Joker wasn't on the screen, and left way too many things up in the air. i love Maggie normally, but she only added "not Katie Holmes" to the experience. You mentioned the action was close-in and hard to track. That was even an improvement from the previous Batman, which seemed to use fist-mounted cameras. (Seriously, go back and watch the mountain ninjas get it on--shaky, blurry stuff.) Little details like the silly voiced car-destructo sequence are symptomatic of the whole thing. Not any sort of award winner.

I'm also with you on Hancock, which tried to mush together two ideas like fancy ice cream parlors do those creations on cold marble slabs. Unfortunately, they mushed up the flavors "sorta sorbet" and "forgettable fudge." And at the end, everyone's all happy and living normally again? Whaaaa? (Don't worry square western world, even the awesomest black superstar can't make off with your blonde ladies!)

Lest I sound like a negative Nancy, I hear the Bowery's New Museum is cool, so will bus down to check it out this weekend. Go NYC culture.

The Dark Knight review and the thing about the restaurant totally made my week, as it did many others I'm sure. Don't be guided by the people who don't get your humor Todd . . . they're idiots. If you cater to them, you'll end up with nothing but idiots as fans.

I agree with Vincent....people are idiots.

Nobody is forced to read any of this, but you will always have the "retard-blog-basher". This is the guy that leaves a shitty comment on your blog just for the sake of doing so. They leave shitty comments on every website that gives them that option.

I wouldn't apologize for the content you write.....I would just write a blog specifically about them and give 'em a return bashing. Let them know what a bunch of fucking idiots they are. Just be prepared for hate-mail.

I haven't seen the DARK KNIGHT yet, but I agree with Odd Todd....it SUCKED.

Aww, tOdd, we still love you, even the critic at the L.A. Times commented on how any critics who disliked Dark Knight got spammed. As for using Blogger, I don't understand why you don't just use it all the time (and have ads for that matter). Don't be a martyr! Make some money! (btw, your review of I Am Legend is still my favorite)
