Ok, I have had some people say that Killer Notebooks has "too much violence" on the site. I said, "I don't think there is enough." but I designed a new logo so I need some votes on which one I should use.
LOL screw the Fruity Pebbles! I love the fiber carbon one (third option) though. Besides, who can say its violent? It's just a freaking knife for crying out loud. If they want to complain, tell them to go into their kitchen and throw out their kitchen knifes first lol.
Yea! It's responses like that I copy and paste to the people who whine. have to go on a little rant here, I am warning you because you probably don't want to read it.
I got one email, "The blood on your logo is too much for my wife that I am buying this sytem for. I would buy it if you finance me though." Um, ok, I am not a bank, if they won't give you a credit card there is probably a reason for that.
Then I have this guy, "You better change your logo that is so obviously a cold steel tanto before you get sued. "Ok, thanks for the concern, but first of all they aren't Tanto's, they are Tai Pan daggers, second of all, "Are you buying a computer right now? because if not I have 35 emails an hour to answer."
My other favorite, "I am a 50 something that uses a MAC and there are probably a lot of people like me that have money but are turned off by the thread of violence apparent in your web site with the swords and people popping out of comuters shooting. I think you should have a whole 'nother site for guys like me who have money and would buy if I wasn't using a MAC." Ok, you know the demographic group I absolutely despise? BABY BOOMERS! These guys think their so freaking smart, and you know what, THEY'RE NOT! You are the largest segment of the U.S. populace and all you idiots are doing the same thing at the same time so it drives the economy!
This goes part and parcel with the joke, "How many republicans does it take to screw in a lightbulb? NONE, they just leave it for their kids to do."
The last person I am going to take advice from is a baby boomer because guess what? We're different generations, what worked for you isnt going to work for our generation... you burned it all up already!
We can't buy a house for $35 grand and turn around and sell it for 250k ten years later, we can't put our money in the stock market in 1992 and have it go up 1550% by 2000, we don't have the luxury of funding our wars and budget defecits and pet projects with Social Security money because you guys stole it all already!
For a generation that sat back and let the infrastructure of this country erode to what it is today as they got fat, having not built a single refinery in 20 years, having not researched 1 freaking alternative fuel because hey, lets power the whole Earth on dinosur guts the whole time... thats never gonna run out, who let the Nuclear power plants just age with band aid after band aid put on them, whos morals and values are so defunct that we had the Enron and Worldcom and Arthur Anderson debacles and then come and tell me how I should run my violent ass web site?
Oh no sir. You can hand me a husk of a country to try to get by with, but don't tell me I can't have a blood drippin' logo pal! What are you worried that it is 1 pint less you get to suck out of our generation and the economy?
