As of right now there are over 17 million posts on this website. We're actually really close to 18 million now that I look at it. We like to talk, a lot. And while not all of them are gems ... there are some pretty hilarious and well said things on the website during the week. Today, I want to try out a new column where I highlight the "best posts of the week." There is absolutely no way I am going to be able to go through every single post on a weekly basis; however, with the help of staff - we've worked on compiling our favorites that we've seen. Now that the feature is in place, we'll hopefully do a better job making note of these when we see them throughout the week. And while I'd love to basically just make this RepliesWithGifs' posts over and over again - I'm going to try and be more diverse. If you click on the little arrow thingy next to the username, you'll be able to go see the post in the thread it originated in ... context, sometimes, helps.
I constantly do this with Saves The Day. At least once a month, I'll take one week and indulge in their discography. If it was possible, I'd grind their discography up and shoot it directly into my blood stream
It's actually derived from the word "gib" which was a type of creature from Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles. This creature spoke in a garbled language similar and was the largest creature in the land (gib = big spelled backwards). It got widespread use when Shakespeare referenced it as a way that Banquo spoke after seeing the witches in Macbeth.
"And Banquo, form a specific thought he could not;
for gibberish engulfed and his mind began to rot."
none of that was true but i am bored and decided to make up a story and i hope you believed it
You're thinking this is amazing right now, right? Now highlight Anton's full post with your mouse.
Last year we wrote and recorded an album, did two full uk runs, and a 46 date US headliner in a four month period. Yeah we dropped off a tour that turned out drawing a maximum 100 kids a night last october. Boo hoo. Life goes on.
