Thank You!

Hi all,
I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone for visiting the site. I hit 30,000 visitors yesterday after about 11 months of running the site and I thought it was worthwhile to take a second to reflect back to last December when I started this thing. It all originally began as a combination of ideas based on a couple of friends of mine. The McBoozo character came about from a drunken night with friends, one of which happened to be eating McDonald's fries late at night in a drunken stupor. He was stumbling around in a t-shirt dripping ketchup on himself and his girlfriend made the comment that his drunken alter-ego was as McBoozo the Clown. For whatever reason the comment stuck in my head and I started thinking how funny it would be to draw a drunken clown. The overall look of McBoozo closely resembles my buddy and the idea of a clown with a beard sounded even funnier yet to me. So anyway, I made a couple sketches and the character of McBoozo was brought to life.

Now for the second part of the equation...I had another friend that would write poems about his drunken adventures and I would write ones back on occasion. Somewhere along the way I had to idea to merge the McBoozo character along with the drunken poetry and start a website for our friends to enjoy. If you look back through the archives the first few months of posts pretty much consisted of some of the poetry from around that time. As life progressed and the drunken adventures became more spread out I started posting random interesting things that I came across on the 'net just to keep the site updated. The last couple of months I have really been posting more music downloads than anything else just because that's what I've been spending a lot of my time doing.

I hope everyone has been enjoying the site and will continue to do so. I'll keep posting more of the music that I'm listening to along with anything else that intrigues me. One of these days I'll get around to posting some more poetry along with a wealth of artwork that's been stashed away as I've been working on some remodeling at home since April. As always if anyone has suggestions go ahead and leave'em in the comments. If you've got some music that you think everyone would enjoy you're more than welcome to forward links or leave'em in the comments as well.

Thanks again for supporting the site! (now buy a t-shirt or something)
