R.I.P. Matt Said, Jay Said

Jay: Yo Matt! 
Matt: Yes?
Jay: Where the hell is Matt Said, Jay Said?
Matt: Let’s do away with it.
Jay: MSJS is a blogging institution though!
Matt: Nothing lasts forever man.
Jay: Very true.
Matt: We need to shake things up.
Jay: You know, this would be a good time to…
Matt: No it wouldn’t.
Jay: You don’t even know what I was going to say
Matt: You were going to say it’s time to do away with the blog.
Jay: Nooooooooooooooooo
Matt: Oh really? What WERE you going to say?
Jay: We should do away with the blog.
Matt: I KNEW IT!
Jay: Damn.

Matt: Instead of doing away with it we can blog less.
Jay: Well, as it is we only REALLY blog twice a week each.
Matt: We can go to ONCE!
Jay: Brilliant!
Matt: IKR?
Jay: What replaces MSJS?
Matt: A show promo.
Jay: That’s what MSJS is though.
Matt: No, just a straight forward show promo. No frills.
Jay: Oh, just play it straight with folks?
Matt: Exactly!
Jay: What else?
Matt: Keep the PotW on Sundays and show review on Monday.
Jay: Not much effort there.
Matt: Then REAL blog post on Tuesday and Thursday.
Jay: I think we can handle that.
Matt: I would hope so.

Jay: Hell, we can just copy and paste the show promo from the BTR page!
Matt: Brilliant!
Jay: Damn, this is looking good.
Matt: Just tack a pic of a hot babe on there for those cheap hits and you’re done!
Jay: Make it like a celebrity endorsement for the show!
Matt: Oh yeah! Kate Upton says “Listen to IWS Radio!”
Jay: Then put it in the title for even MORE cheap hits!
Matt: OMG!
Jay: What?
Matt: Our marketing brilliance takes my breath away sometimes.
Jay: We ARE shockingly brilliant sometimes.
Matt: Totally by accident too.
Jay: That’s what makes it so great.
Matt: And nobody ever expects it either!
Jay: They underestimate us!
Matt: It’s our secret weapon.
Jay: Let’s keep it that way, okay?
Matt: Oh we are! Don’t worry.
Jay: We don’t even have to try!
Matt: Thank God!
Jay: So this is our final MSJS
Matt: Yeah, kinda sad.
Jay: Maybe one of us can do a special MSJS sometime.
Matt: Sure! It doesn’t have to die completely.
Jay: Right! Okay, we’re talking self-censoring and shit, right?
Matt: Well ….

Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets are a great place to express one’s ideas and thoughts, however…Do people go too far sometimes?  Do they over share?  Are people sometimes a bit too open about their private lives or disdain for others over the tubes of the internets?  Should some people, maybe even you, exercise some self-censorship prior to throwing your thoughts out there for the world to see?

So many questions about self-censorship to answer but Jay, Matt, and the IWS Radio team will tackle and answer them all as they delve into the topic of whether, when, and why we may or may not put a ball gag on our mouths and/or typing fingers.  Will hilarity ensue, or will it be censored as they yuk it up while taking your calls?

Jay: That’s on “Social Media, Self-Censorship and YOU” on IWS Radio Sunday at Noon ET!

I hate change.

RiP favourite blog posts EVER. I'll remember you always!!!

Matt-Man: I would love to do Kate Upton. I mean the Kate Upton show! Sorry.


I'm With Stupid said...

Jamie: Sorry Jamie. Change is part of life though. Also, making the blog less effort is important. hahaha


Mike said...

Why do I suddenly feel like saluting?

I'm With Stupid said...

Mike: I'm not saluting, but I am standing at attention.


Katy Anders said...

Does it depress you sometimes to think that your blog reach would quadruple overnight if you just posted pictures of naked women?

I think about that with mine.

I know: You wouldn't ever go for a cheap gimmick like, oh, I don't know, posting a picture of a scantily-clad Kate Upton with a flag in her mouth, but... it is something to think about.

My chances of stopping by are probably about the same if you drop MSJS, and probably only go up a little if you post more pics of Kate Upton.

Katy: Your blog is very superior to most blogs out there. Blogging is effort though. Time and effort and no real payoff. At least it works out that way for me.
