My birthday gifts. The links.
by Thom Kiraly
So, in an earlier post I mentioned a plan I had to post some links previously posted on my Facebook Wall. But first, some background.
I think that congratulations on Facebook are somewhat shallow. A friend of mine proved this last year when, just a short time after his actual birthday, he changed his birthday date to a shortly upcoming date and getting a bunch of people writing congratulations to him. For this reason I requested that people not only write the standard phrases on my wall this year, but instead post links to the strangest, weirdest, most fucked up stuff they could find online. I wasn’t going for gross, disgusting or horrifying, just strange, unusual. Some folks delivered, others… well, this post is not about them.
So here are the links posted on my wall. A great big thanks to everyone who made my birthday a bit stranger and scarier. I’ll definitely do something similar next year.
I’ll start out with the plain links and move on to the embedded videos in my next post. Enjoy. Oh, also: Ill advised viewers should make sure to be discrete… or something.
