Filler Content Friday – Volume 8: Anderson Cooper Without Eyes

Tom CashFiller Content Friday, HumorLeave a Comment

I have a habit for creating gimmick Tumblr accounts and then realizing that I’d spread the joke too thin in the first week, or that the amount of work versus the payoff was too low, and then abandoning them.  Of these, Anderson Cooper Without Eyes was my most successful and long-lived attempt.  It gathered several hundred followers in the first three weeks and got me more fan/hate/WTF mail than anything else I’ve done, in terms of humor.

But there’s only so many times that you can Photoshop a man’s striking blue eyes off of his handsome face before you start asking yourself what you’re doing with your life.

reaction-amused

Somebody emailed me and told me they loved the blog. This my reaction.

reaction-bemused

I think I used this as a response to somebody telling me that I should kill myself.

reaction-disgust

Somebody sent me an email telling me that my blog was their new fetish. This was my response.

reaction-enraged

Somebody told me they were going to report my blog or try to get it deleted or something. I forget what I was going for here, but I think the implication was that I was going to pluck out their eyes and steal them away, and make them part of my eyeless legion.

reaction-lol

Somebody told me that this was their favorite blog. I was pleased.

response-0001

This was a response to an email I got in which I was told that the subject matter of the blog gave the reader nightmares.

response-0002-husbandos

Another response to a read mail. This one was sent to me by an angry woman (I think) who was furious that I was disfiguring her “husbandos” on a daily basis. I think “husbandos” is the hetero female equivalent of “mai waifu”.
