Don’t Stop Believin’ and The Week in Review…

This week I fell into a depressive slump but I’m not really sure why. I’ve decided to combat these feelings of crapulance with chocolate and 80s power ballads, which seems to be doing the trick, but I’m now running out of uplifting tracks to listen to. I need inspiration. So please tell me what your favourite (or most hated) 80s power ballad is in the comments section. I will appreciate it forever. The best suggestion wins an amazing* prize!

*It probably won’t be amazing. Don’t get your hopes up**

**But don’t let that put you off, either.

I didn’t do a week in review last week, so this week’s a double-whammy.

spam of the week

I honestly can’t decide which of these is the weirdest…

Love it . I have been looking for something like this . Good info I will be back for information related to juicing and recipes.

Unquestionably consider that which you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the internet the easiest factor to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while other people think about issues that they just don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing with no need side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

You know thus significantly when it comes to this topic, produced me in my opinion imagine it from a lot of various angles. Its like women and men aren’t involved except it is something to do with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always handle it up!

Hi my family member! I wish to say that this article is amazing, great written and come with approximately all significant infos. I’d like to peer extra posts like this .

Googles of the Week

I’ve noticed a bit of a running theme in my blog search engine stats this week:

If I look at p0rn on my phone, what happens?         

I have been eating a Snickers bar every day             

And there goes the last f**k I gave                                

How to watch p0rn on my new phone                       

Why can we eat excessive amount of food sometimes?       

If you look at p0rn on your phone can it pop up in the phone company     

Consume an excessive amount of food in one day        

I eat one Snickers every day how do I stop                           

Neighbours can hear me eating                                            

Blog of the week

This week I contemplated figuring out how to use Google+ but The Oatmeal’s State of the Web Spring 2012 made me change my mind.

It’s Friday the 13th. Feeling superstitious? Consult Nick Bryan’s Friday the 13th Diagram

And finally… Not a blog, but writing this week’s post about Jack Donaghy involved watching a lot of 30 Rock clips on YouTube. There’s a whole channel dedicated to The Best of Liz Lemon.

And that’s all for this week. Don’t forget to recommend your favourite mood-elevating 80s power ballad in the comments section…

      Oh yes. That’s going on a playlist… Thanks Stoo, I knew I could count on you…

    Run With Us is my go-to 80s power ballad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usFFKNRB2z8

      Oh! Excellent choice! I totally forgot about this song… Always found it weird that it played over the closing credits for the cartoon ‘The Raccoons’

    You know, this porn on your phone thing could be turning into a vicious (or virtuous, I’m not judging) circle. Every time you mention that someone found your blog by searching for that phrase, you increase the number of appearances of that phrase on the blog, thus increasing the chances that it’ll show up next time someone Googles that phrase. It’s an SEO perfect storm.

    • Jo and the Novelist July 13, 2012 at 9:05 pm Reply

      Yes, I have taken this into consideration, which is why the ‘o’ I’ve used here is actually a cleverly disguised ’0′… Take that, Googlers!

    Also, “can it pop up in the phone company” is an amusing phrase in the context.

    • Jo and the Novelist July 13, 2012 at 9:05 pm Reply

      Ha! Yeah, I thought so too… Where’s your 80s power ballad? I’m sure you’ve got one or two classics up your sleeve…

  5. Suniverse July 13, 2012 at 11:28 pm Reply

    You can’t go wrong with Guns and Roses.

    Or Skid Row.

    Or Bon Jovi.

    I kick ASS at power ballads. We should sing them together.

    • Jo and the Novelist July 14, 2012 at 5:36 pm Reply

      We *should* sing them together. I have the Power Ballads Singstar game. Can we do this via Skype?! That would rock… LITERALLY.

    I’m not huge on the power ballads. Do Genesis count? Can I have Throwing It All Away or No Soon Of Mine?

    • Jo and the Novelist July 14, 2012 at 5:37 pm Reply

      Genesis counts, but I would reject Phil Collins as a solo act.

    I don’t think this is eighties so it’s immediately disqualified, but what the hell…

    • Jo and the Novelist July 15, 2012 at 12:25 pm Reply

      A Singstar classic. Good choice.
