Links of the Week (Remix) May 9th

linkoftheweek Links of the Week (Remix) May 9thSo in tribute to a certain blog who’s traditionally known for their “Friday Five” series and who’s very hit or miss these days I’m going to attempt to cut down on the amount of links that I force feed my loyal readers. Some reason you keep coming back and that’s pretty cool, so thanks. The certain blog will be left nameless to protect the identity of the parties involved. UPDATE: Looks like the charged blogger gave us a “Friday Five” so I humbly took one on the face there.

I really hope everyone has been following D.W.’s Super Villian week! So far I’ve learned that I’m The Blackberry-er so watch out. If you have missed the series check out the other villians like Down-With-The-Kids Man, The Sour PussThe Ok-ing Avenger, and New Media Douchebag. I think we all know someone who falls into one of these categories.

It’s still a hilarious video!

So in tribute to the “Friday Five” series let me introduce my special”TGIF Lucky 7“, now with less noise!

    I wonder if the same would would be true of e-mail open tracking (as inaccurate as it already is, anyhow, due to default image blocking). Tracking images are usually placed near the bottom, though they are tiny in size…
