I recently came across a network called Stumbleupon.com. I figured "hmm, maybe I should post some of my blog posts up there." After a while, I posted .... a lot.
The website for APM did not go down .... though we had about seven THOUSAND newcomers ....
If you are one, welcome.
Anyway. we've had to rewrite the top ten most viewed blogs blogs of A Pius Man. Apparently, people really like comic books, theology, and blowing stuff up.
#1 Sex, DC Comics, and ... wtf? This should not come as a surprise to anyone. This was a hit within the week it was posted, and shot up, and stayed up ever since. Written in the wake of the initial DC reboots, this blog took a look at how DC treated two of their best female characters .... badly.
#2 Disasters to Marvel At: A Comic Discussion. Before DC comics had ever earned my ire, Marvel had done a great job at annoying me, by turning their entire world into a giant hamster wheel, where there is a lot of running, and no one goes ANYWHERE
#3 Mr Phelps, You Are Disavowed… No one likes poor Fred Phelps, founded of the Westboro Baptist Church, probably incest master, definite cult leader, and all-round narcissistic little prick.
#4 Evil Religions 2: Baby-raping Catholic Priests. Part of my Evil Religions series (the title was ironic) I took a look at everyone's favorite cliche -- namely, "Oh look, a priest on television. Who does he rape/ maim/ assault /kill?"
#5 The Pirate King, a Story of Sean A.P. Ryan. One of my stories about the infamous mercenary Sean Ryan, a man who doesn't exactly look like the heroic type, and may be too crazy to be a bad guy. Basically, a Somali pirate picked the WRONG ship.
#6 Snarky theology 3: Evolution, Creationists, and other irritants. Also part of the Evil religions series ... Sort of. Some people like to complain about evolution. That it proves or disproves EVERYTHING about religion. If you really, really think that way, well, I think you're a flaming idiot. Here's why.
#7 Scott Murphy's Notebook: Spytech This was a complete shock to me. Honestly. I tossed together some fun facts I've collected over the years, and compiled them. Before, NO ONE had read this blog. Now ... well, what a difference a post on Stumbleupon can make.
#8 Snarky Theology 5: The Passion, Jews, and Good Friday. I wrote this the week before Easter. Too many people watched Mel Gibson's The Passion, and I wanted to look at a few things.
#9 Snarky Theology 2: FAQs about Lent. Again, another "why are people reading this one?" post.
#10 The flame war is postponed .... After the Japan Earthquake, some little twit online made a comment that went viral. I decided someone should smack her down. I did.
Anyway, so, again, if you're new, welcome. Take a look around. We have a nice introduction column on the right. And, before you left, please click on a sponsor or two. We have some interesting ones, and, we need the cash.
