1242 - ReDesign? You Don't Say...
Topic: Blog Servicing
Updated the visual styling of this old blog... working out the kinks, so expect several shifts in appearance until I find a style that works.

1239 - Epilogue
Topic: Blog Servicing

Back in April 2010, I made a post announcing that I would be retiring the original DTM Blog in favor of the Twisted Blog of DTM, which started up several months prior. While there have been a couple posts made since then with broken promises of adding a proper epilogue, I've since deleted them since nothing came of the plans I had for closing out something that has been part of my life for five long years.

So rather than end with a bang, this blog goes out with a whimper...

Not that it means anything, but it's really sad that something that's kept me relatively sane for a good chunk of my life isn't going to get a proper closure. On the other hand, though, it's not going away anytime soon and I can at least look back at some of my earlier thoughts from the time. It might be worth looking into one of these days.

For the few people who somehow followed this blog, thanks for sticking around. And for those just reading this, hopefully you'll be able to keep an open mind on the various ramblings of a man who has been on both ends of the emotional depression meter. And I hope you follow along to the Twisted Blog, where things aren't any better.

It's been a great ride. Thanks for coming along.

Dave
a.k.a. DTM666

Come visit Twisted Blog of DTM

1232 - What The F--?!!!
Topic: Blog Servicing

You may have noticed that I've been posting links here and there rather than the usual Clickie. I'm not going to lie. The blogging software seems to have some kind of glitch where the linking window won't pop up or will pop up empty. While I could just post the link and mess around with the HTML code, I don't really feel like doing that. If the function is there, I should be able to use it without hassle.

It bears mentioning that it could something from my end, but I've tried the same thing on some other computer (located elsewhere) and I get the same fucking problem. 

I really don't want to start bashing Tripod because of this, but this has been happening for at least a couple months. It is getting frustrating when I have to go to FRONTPAGE or the like to write my formatted post and then paste it to the blogging software hoping everything works without a hitch.

Some commented if this blog's going away as a result. That's not going to happen. As much as I complain, I've stuck through worse periods and a little inconvenience isn't going to hinder my efforts or cause me to go away.

However, it is going to slow down posting on this blog... along with the rest of the shit that's going on in my life at the moment.

I'll be going now.

1227 - See?
Topic: Blog Servicing

Yesterday saw three movie reviews posted. Today saw a couple blog posts made and perhaps a couple more reviews of any kind coming soon. And sometime this week, I'll probably be posting a Fanfiction RePost session along with a couple other things.

So yeah, I haven't dumped this blog yet. If anything, I'm building material here to post on the OTHER new blog. While the Twisted Blog is something I want to build into something major, this is still my baby. Even moreso than the Webstation/Twisted Realms site these days.

Later.

1184 - Official Name Change
Topic: Blog Servicing

For clarity purposes, DTM Blog is now presently known as DTM Blog Classic while DTM's Twisted Blog of Randomness will be known as The Twisted Blog of DTM... provided I get around to changing the name any time soon.

Again, more details to come...

1183 - Sorry, kid. I'm breaking up with you for something sweeter...
Topic: Blog Servicing

I started a new affair yesterday during a dry period.

And with that, I'm "proud" to introduce the new DTM's Blog of Randomness, which is my all-new, leaner blog at Blogspot. Unofficially, it's called DTM Blog II: The Wrath of Crohn, but decided with the much happier, more ambiguous Blog of Randomness! Hooray!

What does this mean for DTM Blog?

Absolutely nothing, because there's no rule saying I can't have more than one blog.

But that doesn't answer my question, asshack!

Watch your mouth, boy! All will be explained in the coming weeks.

Maybe...

*Updates will still made to THIS blog, but I also have another blog for leaner purposes... like I said, more details to come as soon as I straighten them out.

1152 - Been sick for the past couple days...
Topic: Blog Servicing
Nasty little stomach virus has kept me incapacitated for the better part of a week... so bad I had to miss two days of work which pisses me off to no end, but I'm starting to feel a little better. A trip to the hospital has shown that I'm not suffering from any ulcers, faulty appendices, kidney stones, or any of that fun stuff. I still have to go back for a CT scan, but you know... I'm not going to jinx it. Bye.

1150 - FIVE YEARS AGO...
Topic: Blog Servicing

On Canada Day 2004, I debuted two new things; the then-new version of the DTM Webstation site called "Webstation Black". Which didn't last long.

Also on that day, I posted my first blog post ever, beginning a strange and interesting journey along the way that has resulted in a flucuating mind and really, really, REALLY nothing to show for it.

So as of today, DTM Blog is five years old. And unlike Wrestlemania's recent anniversary festivities, my math is accurate. I started in 2004 and we're in 2009. Hence, fifth anniversary.

As to whether I have anything special planned?

Not really, but some neat stuff is going to get done here, I assure you.

In the meantime, enjoy your Canada Day, kids. I know I will.

1149 - Can't be bothered right now
Topic: Blog Servicing

I'm having developmental problems with the blog. Apparently, when I click on one of the topic lists, no entries show up. I'd try and figure out the problem, but I'm too damn sick now. If anyone else has this same problem, let me know and I'll try and find out what's going on.

Later.

1142 - Funny, I thought I had a post here...

Hmm... I had written this post on something, but it's not here. I don't know why.

1104 - Post missing
Topic: Blog Servicing

I had written a nice post yesterday about the Irate Gamer's latest episode (half a review of the SNES Aladdin game and half cheesy variety show), but alas the post didn't upload. Rather than repost the whole spiel, I'll just say this:

Mr. Bores, your production is fairly impressive by YouTube standards, but your actual reviewing skills leave much to be desired. It seems obvious to me that this show of yours is becoming more and more gimmicky each time (and to be fair, some could say the same about AVGN). Your NEO episodes are fairly close to the review style that is respectable, so try applying that type of effort into your original show and I'll be happy. Thanks.

1088 - No Spider-Man in 2008 review?
Topic: Blog Servicing

More of an addendum to the 2008 in Review piece I wrote a couple weeks back...

HTML clipboardSome people have been wondering about where Spider-Man's whole year would fit; after all, he fell victim to lobotomization via the ridiculously insulting One More Day storyline and probably would have been a prime candidate to be this year's loser. The fact is that I want to give Spider-Man a break; while the storyline in particular has killed the character in my eyes (there is no possible way you can try and convince me that Spider-Man would make a deal with the fucking devil - no fucking way), I really don't feel like kicking him while he's down. Besides, I had already listed a wrestling disaster as a loser last year and felt it was a tad unfair. So let's cut him some slack... for now.

1067 - New Quick Links on the sidebar
Topic: Blog Servicing

For those interested in my Mega-Reviews, I've left a link on the side bar so you can reach the main list and work from there instead of having to search through hundreds of random posts that buries it down the road. As more of these features become the norm, I'll be posting them on the side as well. It's not much at the moment, but it's a start.

1058 - Changed the title again...
Topic: Blog Servicing
Subtitle of the Blog has changed, based on a line from a recent trailer. Smart people who guess the line gets a cookie.

1006 - Planned updates
Topic: Blog Servicing

A couple quick reviews have been written - mostly some older games, but classic games. They'll be posted within the next couple weeks, although they might be available on GameFAQS some time earlier than that. Click here for my page there.

Now back in May, I started an NES Retrospect feature on the Blog. As expected, it was supposed to last the month, but was quickly abandoned. I'm working on finishing off the series and hoping to post some entries within the next month. Bare with me.

975 Down... 25 to go in one week.
Topic: Blog Servicing

So here's the deal. The countdown to 1000 begins and it's going to be a rushed affair. The idea is for this blog to hit quadruple digit posts before my birthday. Simple affair, right?

Here's the catch. My birthday's this coming Friday.

Neat-o, eh?

So expect a flurry of random posts... starting now.

960 - Stupid me... a "lost" milestone of the blog
Topic: Blog Servicing

It's stupid of me not to notice, but... as of July 1, 2008, this blog is currently in its fifth year of operation. So in essence, a milestone (as insignificant as it may be) has been reached.

Now to reach 1000 posts...

That is all.

901 - New Look from another pre-set template
Topic: Blog Servicing
This one's actually not that bad. If I can figure out how to change the banner and stuff, I might actually stick with this one.
