#1000*

This is the 1,000th post on The-ISB.com, and as such, I am celebrating in the only appropriate fashion:

Batman kicking a super-intelligent gorilla in the face.

 

 

Thanks, Phil. And if anyone’s wondering, of the last thousand, this is still my favorite.

 

*: If you count ISB Classic, it’s post #1,794 of the entire ISB.

  1. Congratulations, Sims. You are the tossed car battery in the collapsed chest of my daily internet reading schedule.

  2. If I remember my katakana, that Gorilla is saying “GAH!” Which is what I say when I think of you, Chris.

    Or it might be “GYAH!” which is what I say when I think about myself.

  3. So, did Chris return the wayward daughter of Beyonce Knowles to her home. And having no further concern, he and his companions sought adventure in the West.

    Many wars and feuds did Chris fight. Honor and fear were heaped upon his name and, in time, he became a king by his own hand…

    And this story shall also be told.

  4. Chris, happy 1000th post! I don’t use the phrase “pyrrhic victory” often, but brother, I only hope your sanity can hold out for another 1000!

  5. Chris, I’m concerned that with 1000 posts that your blog may have too much continuity for a newcomer to follow. I recommend starting over with post 1 at a new site.

    Of course 206 posts from then you can go back to the old numbering for the bump in sales.

  6. Mazal Tov sir. Here is to the next thousand. My favorite blog, hands down. Big ups indeed.

  7. your blog may have too much continuity for a newcomer to follow

    Indeed, I didn’t even know there was an alternate blog universe where Chris’ older posts took place. Today’s crossover between ISB-1 and ISB-2 was just confusing!

  8. I don’t know, Just Some Guy. Maybe just a expansive limited series of posts that resolve in a soft reboot. Maybe Chris makes a deal with the devil or something.

  9. “your blog may have too much continuity for a newcomer to follow. I recommend starting over with post 1 at a new site.”

    Just think about the possibilities Chris. You could simply recycle all the same posts you did, tweaking them slightly to make them “current” and “edgy.” Eventually, you can pull a Loeb and dump a steaming pile of crap on the whole site and then re-boot again…and again…and again…

    So long as we keep getting scintallating reviews of Anita Blake and Tarot, its all good.

    Congrats on the 1,000th!

  10. Bonus Hilarity: I went back and checked and, counting ISB Classic, your overall 1000th post devolved into an insane hate-fest when you wished us all a Happy Thanksgiving! I don’t know why I find that really funny, but, God help me, I do.

  11. I don’t know, Just Some Guy. Maybe just a expansive limited series of posts that resolve in a soft reboot. Maybe Chris makes a deal with the devil or something.

    But Chris has already made a deal with Comics Alliance!
