Come closer, now, and whisper your MOST EVIL PLANS

My silly blog is now one year old, meaning it doesn’t just crawl anymore.

No. It can (a) get to its feet by grabbing the couch, (b) chase teh kitteh all over the living room, (c) scribble all over the first page of any book with a red pen and (d) make sarcastic faces at really bad movies.

So thank you, dear reader, for faithfully reading posts, writing insanely witty comments and talking smack to me on the Twitter.

I never expected this little blog to have 4,300 hits in a day (Saturday), 11,000 followers on the Twitter or 100,000-whatever hits in its first year of life.

You did NOT expect that. Little Godzilla.

Did you expect that? NO. Me neither.

My expectations were rather low. This blog-like substance was born out of fun, and to try out a bunch of things on WordPress and the Twitter.

What should happen next, in Year Two?

You tell me. I’m taking requests.

Inch on a little closer to me and whisper, softly, your most evil of evil plans.

  • What over-rated novel deserves to have Page 1 ripped apart by a red pen of doom?
  • Which movies or TV shows needs to be put on the table and dissected to see how it works so beautifully, or doesn’t work at all?
  • What insane music videos need to be shown to the world, with the lyrics translated into English?
  • Or should we just go all-in with zombies, zombies and, just for variety, more zombies?
evolution of zombies

Everything goes better with zombies.

Vote in the little poll below, or post your idea in the comment section. And thanks again.


This is Guy Bergstrom the writer, not the Guy Bergstrom in Stockholm or the guy in Minnesota who sells real estate or whatever. Separate guys. Kthxbai.

  1. Your blog should be about ME!


    Not one hand raised? Dang it. Foiled again.
    Okay, fine. Zombies then.

    (Keep up the good work, Guy. I love your blog.)


  2. Happy first anniversary to the Red Pen! It’s brought much well-needed doom over the last year, to more than just my own work!

    As for what Year Two will hold, I was a bit sad there was no poll option for taking your machete to Michael Bay movies. Ah, well, at least I can keep coming back for your truisms about writing, publicity, and the value (and occasional lack thereof) of the Internet and all it has to offer.


  3. I’m partial to that cat who says no-no-no. And savaging writers who make a lot of money. And zombies never let you down. And as a recent Survivor player said, just before being voted out, “Some cookies would be nice.”


  4. Happy birthday and congratulations! Keep up the great work! But don’t forget about the Undead (not just zombies and all their “Brains…!” trash talk…). :-]


  5. I tried to tick all the boxes but it wouldn’t let me!! Then it wouldn’t let me leave all this message in the box next to other!!
    A gazillion congratulations to you and your awesome blog, long may it continue!! :D
