How awesome is Kickstarter?


By web gangsta | Published:

Kickstarter is awesome. Where else can you go when you have an absolutely crazy idea and need to raise some quick capital in order to implement said idea?

Web Watch has a dozen or so ideas that are just waiting for the right time to get them Kickstarted.  That will help pay us back for any of the projects that we have contributed to that may never see the light of day.

But for every singular Kickstarter success, there’s at least one or two (or dozen) more that should never, ever get funded.

Top Places NOT to take a Selfie


By web gangsta | Published:

How many of you have taken a selfie?

(Web Watch will be kind to you: a “selfie” is a self-portrait taken with your digital camera or cellphone. Sometimes done in a mirror, sometimes just done with your arm outstretched as far as it can go.  Remember when cameras had timers, and you’d set your timer and run back into the camera shot?  Yeah, same thing – but for the digital age.)

More interestingly – what prompts you to take a selfie in the first place?

The Awkward Years Project


By web gangsta | Published:

Believe it or not, everybody growing up had at least one awkward moment that lives on in ancient photos stored in albums or shoeboxes hidden under a pile of clothes in the back of a closet.

If you think that everyone in school was absolutely perfect at everything – sports, tests, popularity – then your memory of high school is much fuzzier than everyone else’s has been.  THE BREAKFAST CLUB did sum it up perfectly in that everyone in school was, at one time or another “a brain, an athlete, a basketcase, a princess”… and maybe a little bit of a criminal.

Some kids are spoiled rotten. For them, Christmas Sucks


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch loves to participate in any gift-receiving holiday.  Christmas, Easter, Hanukah, Arbor Day – you name it, if we’re pretty much guaranteed of getting a gift, we’ll embrace whatever holiday traditions we need to.

Yeah, getting too much stuff is never boring.   And as we’ve said previously, we had all our holiday shopping done in just a few hours, but we may have missed getting the Ultimate Christmas Gift for those we were handing out presents to.

Of course, if you followed the OFFICIAL WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE RULES, then you know that sometimes you may be the one who brought The Most Coveted Gift Of The Year, or have been left with a zonk.

Pictures of Couples Who Dress Alike, but aren’t twins. (Don’t be these people)


By web gangsta | Published:

It’s almost Halloween time, and that time of year when spouses everwhere dread those two awful words:

“Couples’ Costume”

You never want to be THAT couple at a Halloween party, where your costume depends on your spouse to be around in order to complete the picture.  You don’t want to be dressed as an electric plug, and not have your outlet nearby – if you know what we mean.

How to write a comment on the Internet (It’s “Online Commenting Etiquette 101”)


By web gangsta | Published:

Commenting (whether it be on a blog, a Facebook page, or via Tweet) is a fine art.

Some people get it right, and are effective in rallying other readers behind their cause.  Others are looked at as Internet trolls, people who have absolutely nothing to add to the conversation.

Look, it’s really easy — we get it, the Internet is an anonymous cesspool of interaction, allowing anyone with a screen and a keyboard to shout out whatever they feel like, at any time they’d like.  The First Amendment does protect those folks in saying whatever they want, but the First Amendment doesn’t guarantee that they can say it wherever they can.  That’s why the DELETE and BAN buttons were invented.
