“What if…”, the birth of a great idea or so I say myself…



As I was checking the labels of my "Merc’s hit list" (that is my archives then, don’t worry no red laser target sights pointed at your heads as you read this, could happen tomorrow though you never know, lol) the other day, I felt that something was lacking. I enjoyed the originality of the labels and it did provide a quite wide breadth of topic areas and favourite past times but something was definitely missing. I needed a new category for those times when I am seriously in the mood to have fun and be that little bit extra creative letting my imagination run wild. This is something that I do a lot more in my greek blog which uses my knack for innovative story telling significantly more, compared to this one which is more about what makes me feel good and roar with laughter. After all, the audience is different and a lot of greek people wouldn’t “get” the excess wackiness of the humour displayed in this blog (this does mean you are a bit nuts yourselves for browsing this blog you know….oh well, no one is perfect,heh). Regardless, I needed something, some new category of posts, that would let me cut even more loose (is that even humanly possible I wonder…) with any topic I fancy, while being a little bit more creative in the process (it is all about imagination with me baby and let me tell you I am not referring to my ever so often wet dreams about Eva Mendes and me in an abandoned island… oooppsss busted, lol).

So what to do, what to do, after a total thinking time of about two minutes (I kid you not… well maybe I am… I am DP after all, lol) I came up with what I would call, a great idea. Personally, I know I have a good idea when at the moment I conceive it, it makes me crack a subtle smile (something like the Ben Affleck trademark smirk that is taken for acting in the
US, lol). So, what was it then that made me all warm and fuzzy inside ? (Nope, it wasn't my newfound Coca Cola Zero addiction, after all that one is just melting my insides one day at a time no biggie, ha,ha,ha). The name of the game is “What if…”. Part of the inspiration of it came from some Marvel Comics book that used to exist years ago under the same name. The concept of those comic books was to show what would have happened if an earth shattering event in the Marvel Universe hadn’t go the mainstream way that every Marvel fan knows but had followed an alternative route and ended up totally different than expected. These were single shot issues that were full of innovation and their creators were free from the restraints of comic book continuity (I guess for "Lost" fans a “what if…” story would be if Hurley had been gay and Jack and Sawyer were fighting for his affection instead of macho overdosing over Kate’s freckles… I think you get the juice of the concept by now, lol).

So that is that then, I officially baptize this new idea into the DP insanity pool and let it enter the realm of my blogging archives. If I manage to make at least one of you wet your pants with laughτer I will be in Merc heaven … (ok, ok I know you are a tough audience and all but thinking about reverting to diapers is not too unrealistic an option, just give me some time, lol). Ok, I know I am raising the bar too high and probably I am going to eat dirt and a lot of virtual tomatoes for my stupid mumblings but come to think of it… nothing new there, LOL!!!

Till next time, DP out!

I come back to tell u exactly what I like about your blog and u in general. Well, I started blogging few weeks ago in order to monetize it. Looking around, it doesn't seem an easy job. Not that I'm quiting but...hmm...we'll see. U don't care about traffic and aggressive advertising. U like to write and u know how to express your thoughts. Great! U don't sound like embittered existentialist philosopher. U are full of life, funny and smart.
Wish u well and God bless.

OK, I am officially blushing, good thing my mask is red then. (You know I got a macho rep to maintain here and all, lol yeah right...).

I'll visit your blog soon (if your blog survives the visit is a different matter altogether ha,ha,ha)

Take care!

haha, like usual, your eccentric sense of humor prevails through your writing. I like your new labels, it's refreshing!

Deadpoolite said...

Better psychiatrists than you have tried to analyse the core of my eccentrical sense of humour and thus my insanity. To no avail... they ended up where I was supposed to be going if you catch my drift,lol.

Glad you like the quirky labels' names. I hope I can do the "What if..." concept justice. Oh, man I am going to have a blast with it once I start writing I just know it...

When that will be is a different matter altogether...

Oh my gosh, I'm still chuckling over that post. I always appreciate how you draw parallels to pop culture references (i.e. a more gay version of Lost) and personal experience (i.e. what you and Eva Mendes do on the island stays on the island...)

@itelli

Well, Deadpool was created by Fabian Nicieza so not much chance for him being in the J-club as well:)

Funny thing is I always thought you were going to think of me when you see pics of people in straitjackets...hmmm...Oh well,here is hoping I can rectify that in the future:)

Talk to ya soon!

Mmm... I commented a few days ago but can't see my comment... weird...

Deadpoolite said...

@zhu

I am sure there is no worldwide conspiracy against you just yet:)

Heh, had to tease ya girl!

I guess sometimes this blog cant handle the extreme coolness that all its readers showcase with their comments (it can barely contain its writer's wackiness after all...lol), so once in a while some comments are lost in oblivion.

Dont worry about it there is always the next post for commenting:)

Have a great month Zhu!
