Hail! Hail, Threedonia!!
How to use threedonia.com:
It’s a web-site. That’s about all you need to know. Well, wait, maybe some tips on what’s unique to threedonia, to enhance your reading enjoyment.
1. If you don’t use an rss feed, get one and put this site on it. If you don’t know what that means, google rss and learn about them. This site is updated often. It’s a random, chaotic little corner of the world wide web and you’re bound to miss plenty if you just check in from time to time. Put us on your rss feed and you’ll know when things pop and you won’t miss out.
B) Your proprietors are Charles Foster Kane, Floyd R. Turbo and Rufus T. Firefly. If you want to learn more about us click on our name page headings. Chuck, Floyd and Rufus are brilliant and can easily provide enough interesting, fascinating commentary to fill your days and nights but we like to spread the joy around. We’re humble that way. Brilliant yet humble. So, you’ll notice some regular features from some other folks; JohnFN, trzupr, Eric Porvaznik, Wankette and Outlaw13. We invited them here because we like to read their stuff and we know you will too.
c. Don’t just lurk, comment! Chuck, Floyd and I do this for fun and it’s no fun if we’re not hearing from you. Also, most of you are as brilliant, or more brilliant than us. We need your insight! Don’t keep it to yourself. Comment, debate, argue, agree, laugh, type those annoying emoticon things… Whatever, just participate. There is no “I” in “threedonia.” Well, I guess there is, but still there’s no “threedonia.com” without you.
iv) If you need to reach us you’ll find our e-mail addresses on those name page headings discussed in #2. You’re probably wondering what kind of painty-waist sissy-men are we that we insist on using these goofy aliases? Well, first of all, you don’t really know for sure that these aren’t our real names, but let’s just assume you’re right. Well, then, why does Superman go by Clark Kent? Batman as Bruce Wayne? Spiderman as Peter Parker? Rey Misterio as Oscar Gutierrez Rubio? Sometimes, when you have extraordinary talent an alias is necessary as cover to blend with regular folks. Yes, we’re not like you. We have almost nothing in common with you, yet we’re fascinated by your mortal lives and get a small thrill from mingling with you and learning about your daily goings on. And if you think Clark Kent or Peter Parker are painty-waists, well you can take that up with them. O.K., that Toby McGuire guy seems a little light in the loafers and Brandon Routh isn’t very manly… Well maybe you’ve got a point…
Please give us suggestions on how to improve the site. What do you want more of? Less of? What works? What doesn’t? This is a dynamic, organic, literary experiment and we are constantly tweaking it to try to make it better. Let us know what you think. Don’t just do something, sit there!
And about the name… for the uninitiated there were originally three of us and playing off of Rufus T. Firefly being the leader of Freedonia in the movie Duck Soup. Three — threedonia… get it? OK that and Freedonia.com cost like a million dollars at GoDaddy to register and none of us wanted to part with 5% of our vast wealth.
