Happy birthday, Jake!!!

Mar 2, 09:45 AM · from the mouth of Tyler

Hooray for Jake!!

Hope you have a super fantastic birthday, my friend. You can take a sigh of relief in knowing that soon, spring will be here, the snow will melt, the days will get longer, and happiness will be restored to all the land. Or something. And, St. Patrick’s Day is soon, too! So, I’d say you’ve got a pretty good birthday.

I’m posting this here, sadly unsure of whether anyone will see it. I’ve been suspecting the demise of GoofyGuys for a while now, but it’s a painful reality that’s becoming more and more apparent. You’ve served us well for many years, Goof. I’m not ready to say goodbye, but I may be in the minority. I definitely prefer it to Facebook for interacting with you guys, because Facebook is just so big and noisy. This is more private and exclusive to us. But that may not be enough of a reason. Plus, I suspect you’ve been silently funding it’s hosting all these years, Jake, and we all appreciate it. It wouldn’t be fair to you to keep paying for it if we don’t use it. So I’ll let you decide what should become of it.

But that’s enough Goofy morbidity for now. A birthday is a time to celebrate, and celebrate you should. Have a beer, relax, and look forward to a magical trip to the Bahamas in a few short weeks.

    I second the birthday wishes! And I add to it a link to another version of the video I posted on Facebook. Sorry, by the way, for the crappy quality of that. It was early and I was in a hurry and afraid I would forget about this later in the day. Anyhow:

    I also second the sentiments about the future of Goofyguys. While we’re reading it and using it RIGHT NOW, is it worth it to keep it up? I admit to being lazy about posting, and that puts me in the TOP half of the original users. John is a distant memory, Bryan is a slave to Verizon/Veronica/World of Warcraft, Jim and Sarah work like crazy and never check unless prodded. So maybe it’s time to at least talk about a format change, if not a full-blown takedown. More thoughts?

    Love that video, Andy!

    Here’s another I thought you guys would enjoy. Made me think of Andy’s stop-motion Lego project from way back!

    Thanks guys.

    Well I can try to post a little more. I just haven’t had much to post about. I switched hosts not too long ago and it’s even cheaper now to keep this up. Basically I’ve always had a hosting account that allows for multiple sites. And between Brian and I we have like ten sites. So no worries on that front.

    Holy crap that was some crazy Lego/Star Wars goodness.

    Yes… though I think the busy excuse is more for Jimmy… I check Facebook and Email like a hawk. I think the reason I don’t check this much is because it only updates every few weeks or every few months it seems. I think that’s why I don’t keep it up in my usual “spread” of tabs in my browser. Hmmm…
