Folks, the time is finally here at DJF to turn and face the strange. I have been asked to refrain from posting for the next twenty-four hours– give or take– as we begin the process of moving the blog over to theScore.com. Many of you likely have seen this coming, what with the lack of ads on a blog being run by someone being paid to hang out in palatial Score Towers and, seemingly, do nothing else. And that’s kind of a thing I’d like to stress here. DJF has actually been my full time job in anticipation of this move for some time now. So, before anyone goes pissing and moaning about selling out, or shit like my potentially no longer being able to say “pissing and moaning” or “shit,” keep in mind that we actually sold out a while back, and all it’s done is allow me to pump out more and more, and hopefully better, content every day.
Well… every weekday. But we’re hoping our typically-quiet weekends are going to change too, as things keep getting bigger and better here. Yes, there will be a new look, which may take some getting used to. And some of the bells and whistles and the esoteric charm of the right sidebar may be temporarily muted. And I’m pretty sure the comments are going to be different– which… OK, actually that does kind of suck. But the archive will still be there, the comments since we moved to Disqus should still be there, and that’s not all…
The 2012 MLB season will mark the long-overdue return of our entirely Jays-specific DJF Podcast, which comes in addition to live Getting Blanked webcasts each Monday to Thursday, and the Getting Blanked Podcast on Fridays. We’ve recently added Scott Lewis– aka @TheScottLewis– to the team, which is only going to enhance our creative output when it comes to videos, Photoshops, and, in general, good shit. Not to mention the aforementioned podcasts and daily videos.
You’ll also– if you’re good and eat all your vegetables– perhaps even see occasional appearances from Parkes and Drew over here– y’know, when they write any kind of rosterbatory piece about the Jays’ twenty-fifth man that they deem a little too obscure for the wider MLB-net they cast over at Getting Blanked. And if we can ever find Bergkamp and the Chairman, them too. Why not?
I’m curious to see how it all works out, myself. But rather than simply disappear until I see you on the other side, tomorrow you’ll still be able to find me on Twitter, not to mention our fancy-looking Facebook page, which is already functioning as the new home of our Smokin’ Polls (Thames vs. Snider– who ya got?).
If you have any questions or any issues once the site is redeployed, you can ask them on Twitter, on Facebook, or you can email me. If possible, include the operating system and browser you’re using. I’m not anticipating any issues– DrunkJaysFans.com will still work, as will our RSS feeds and any of the emails, auto-tweets and whatever else is generated by them. But if something does come up, it’s now in theScore’s interest to make it right real quick, and no longer up to my lazy ass– thank fuck.
Thank you all for your continuing readership and commenting. You make the site what it is– and I don’t expect that’s going to change just because things like the font are going to look slightly different.
So… there’s that. I guess that’s the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuatin’ it-self, down through the generations, westward the wagons, across the sands a time until– aw, look at me, I’m ramblin’ again. Wal, uh hope you folks enjoyed yourselves.
