I think it makes sense as a way to differentiate the OH from other sites that offer the same information in a much blander way. Worth developing further, IMO.

Wait!... those were supposed to actually be informative and newsworthy articles?
I thought I was the reading the inane ramblings of someone who was drunk,drugged and or insane.

I've seen this place going forward for so long I guess I worry about it crashing into flames for all the wrong reasons i.e. self-destruction.


That would actually be entertaining to see. :twisted:

I think they understand sarcasm, and would probably laugh. Marc Silvestri was retweeting my article calling him a socialist the other day. The industry gets it.


They get that he's a socialist! :lol:

I barely paid attention to the articles before. Now I read all the funny ones. I think it's a winning strategy. The Outhouse will never beat the major comic news sites in "standard" news, so why not make its mark as the "funny" comic news source?

clearly some can't, i had to actually go to another site today to make sure the robinson he-man story was true... then there are some articles where its nothing but making fun of stuff (the Glee/Archie one) and doesn't actually give any information about the creative team.

I say keep doing it. Generate a more unique spin but most importantly a truthful one on all those news items on comics and related stuff.

People go to Jon Stewart for politics. Let folks come here for comics and stuff. We snark, luv it or leave it. We are fans of all ages here.

I think you need to separate the press release from the snark with a POV section from each of the articles. It's funny to read a thanoscoper article once in a while but for fucks sake, everything bringing the same brand of humor gets old really fast.

And yet Jon Stewart is still on the air... Seth Rogan still makes movies...

Because they obviously write for the OH and cater to the same audience for that comparison.
