Introducing Jiffy the intern

January 14, 2010 Newbs No Comments

Newbs here, I just wanted to let you, the readership, know that Shufflingdead is bringing on a new writer. He’s Jiffy the Intern, and he’s going to be helping me out with all the news stories I haven’t had time to post.

You’ll see news posts by Jiffy popping up regularly over the next few weeks. When he’s finished his job and I no longer have use for him, he’ll be summarily executed and then fired for being dead.

Jiffy’s a good kid, so don’t be too hard on him.

The Shufflingdead train to success

December 17, 2009 Newbs No Comments

Until now, only phases 1-5 of “The New and Thrilling Shufflingdead.com” project were known. They were:

Phase 1: Finish porting site over to WordPress
Phase 2: Update at least minimally
Phase 3: Promote site
Phase 4: Expand the Shufflingdead empire
Phase 5: Increase quality

Phase 5, I feel, has gone superbly. The “News” section of the site was introduced under this phase, and with it came an endless march of stories that I’ve had fun writing, and which I suspect have been fun for the Shufflingdead readership.

And now, it is my pleasure to introduce Phases 6 through 8 of the project:

Brannigan 2009 Speech

November 26, 2009 Newbs No Comments

Each year at my birthday, known as The Brannigan, I perform a special speech. This is the speech from Brannigan 2009.

Welcome to Brannigan 2009, Brannigan 6. It’s now time for the annual speech

Good evening. In less than an hour young adults from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest celebration in the history of mankind.

Mankind… That… word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interests.

Perhaps it’s fate that today is in the month of November, and you will once again be fighting for our birthdays. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We’re partying for our right to live. To exist.

And should we win the day, the month of November will no longer be known as Wes and Newbs’ birthday, but as the month when the world declared in one voice, “We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!” We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive!

Today we celebrate our Birthday.

Next Level Blogging

November 8, 2009 Newbs No Comments

Today is missing Shufflingdead’s traditional Sunday video. That likely shocks and offends you, and I’m sorry. Still, effort is being applied to the site today. To begin with, I have uncovered a number of updates which didn’t previously have proper homes on the site, and as such didn’t come over with the move to WordPress. I’ve now restored:

Three open letters:
Amy Lee
William Shatner

Two blog posts:
On Blogging and Minish Cap
Minish Cap: Complete

And one Word of the Week:

These old updates eventually spawned the Blogs and Things of the Week sections, which have both become integral parts of Shufflingdead.com. In looking over these early attempts at creating small, less structured updates to the site, I became inspired. I’ve decided to start a new blog here at Shufflingdead, called The Dungeon’s Boss, the first update of which will be viewable later today.
