Chances Are You Are Not Reading This Post

Let’s play a game…

Image Google any/all of the following:

What do certain pictures on the first line of the first page have in common? Do you see it?

[Answer: On the first line of the top page, beneath at least one image you’ll read: Yes, that is the street url of The Bar None.]

Today i broke the 500 page view mark for the first time, and i broke it handily. [Right now i’m at 575 and there are still 2 hours left…i may go right through 600.]

Obviously, the reason for my sudden success is found in the game we just played. Gazillion of drunk guys are coming here. At least they’re drunk, right? And i thank them for patronizing me with all of the usual fervor i give the regulars here. Thank you for choosing my humble hole in the wall to look around. Come back anytime.

So now i’m famous and getting tons of page hits just because i brought some hotties into the Bar None. What am i going to do with my newfound celebrityhoodness? Am i going to continue looking up photos you could find yourself with five minutes and a firm grasp on your mouse? Am i gonna hang girlie posters in every corner of every post just to get a rise out of my hit box?

You betcha.

Nah, just kidding. This blog isn’t about trying to be popular. The Bar None is where the kids who were never popular come to be themselves. A Community of Exiles. The Land of the Banished. As Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character, Lester Bangs, says in Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous: “The only currency in this bankrupt world is what you tell someone else when you’re uncool.”

i feel kinda like the kid who’s suddenly popular because he brought his uncle’s Playboy to school. Or the slow guy at the bar everybody likes because his sister is a hot stripper.

And you know what? i’m ok with that. At least the people are coming.  Hopefully, one or two of them will stumble upon another post after they stumble upon Megan Fox’s boobs. Of the 584 hits i’ve received now, maybe one or two of you will click on About: The Bar None or The Bar None Archives and look up a post that sounds intriguing. And maybe you’ll leave a comment and the next time you come back, you’ll find more titties but you’ll also see what else we have on tap.

Either way, thank you for coming.
