its so funny how people sometimes accuse me of doing things for hits when if they would simply look at my stats, which are totally public, they would see that just like most blogs, the traffic is pretty steady and reliable.
and then you come across situations like today when people are looking for the bottomless pictures of Fall Out Boy bassist and heartthrob Pete Wentz nude.
and people know that Pete posts tons of pictures, mostly personal pictures, of himself and his life and his band and all of that on Buzznet, and i guess because i have mentioned him a few times on this blog the busblog comes up when people search for "pete wentz nude."
as if ive ever posted pics of any dude nude, or chick for that matter.
sometimes you might see a nipple or lord help us a breast but if i put a weiner on here id never hear the end of it.
so for those of you who are looking for this fine fellows phallice, yes i have seen the pictures, yes i have the pictures, but no theyre not on buzznet and theyre definately not on the busblog.
buzznet tries to uphold a PG-13 lifestyle. meaning, and i know its not fair, but female frontal nudity is ok, but male bottomlessness is not ok. its ok if you put it in a private gallery, but its not ok if its just out there.
under a clandestine tattoo.
with lots of hair all around it.
so yeah, if i was a hit whore id have that picture up and id say "there it is kids, a bass players peen, arent i the best!"
i know thats what some of the gossip blogs do and sure enough their readers say, "yup youre the best, omg i love you, omg if you werent gay id omg have your babies, gahhhh."
what i really dont understand is how those blogs can keep the pictures up after pete writes something like this on the official Fall Out Boy blog
Wednesday, March 8, 2006 i mean really, bro didnt mean to have those out there, FOB is already in the top ten, theyve graduated from playing the Wiltern like they did in October to headlining the Sports Arena when they come back here next month, just like theres no reason for me to try to get bs hits, theres no reason for him to literally expose himself for... more exposure.
this just in.
so as some of you obviously know someone hacked into my sidekick and took pictures off of it. this was very upsetting and a total invasion of privacy. i can't explain to you how it feels. whats even more absurd to me is that anyone would care to see a couple of racy pictures of some shitty, dirty boy. after feeling badly about this for about 24 hours, i am now ready to get back to laughing.
its been a tough couple of weeks for me lately. the only good thing about times of adversity is that you realize who your real friends and fans are- and the rest go away- which in my mind is an ok thing. i just wanted to take the time to thank the people who continually stand by my side- a special thanks to absolutepunk.net and mikey way for being amazing.
the moral of the story: if you really dont want pictures of yourself to end up on the internet. dont take the pictures.
now please return to the shittalking at whatever messageboard you are at.
OMG! gaah. i forgot the most important part- how the fuck did santino not win? santino > pete wentz - for sure- thought i could have understood if daniel won, but her? blah.
now you can really go back.

so if he doesnt want the pics out there, throw the guy a bone and respect his wishes.
i know its easy for me to say because he obviously gets Buzznet lots of hits, but there are many ways that we could exploit that relationship and we dont, theres tons of ways for us to even capitalize on the FOB popularity but we dont, mostly because it's not Fall Out Boy via their management via their label on Buzznet, its the user Pete doing exactly what the user Matt and the user Wil and the user Tony do on Buzznet, take pics and have people comment on them.
one thing ive learned from this though is after Paris and now Pete, who really wants to have a Sidekick any more? clearly theyre far too easy to hack into.
