Dear Readership

I Hereby Announce the Unthinkable --> Closure of IOYC.


Word life. (Also, how ill is that Plane!?) It's time for me to Retire from the world of Web Page Journalism in order to make a New Project so secret and fucking intense that it would make most people explode to think about it. Imagine forcing a Child or Animal to think about it - so Sadistic.

I feel pretty guilt-ridden, 1. right before the Whale Festival and 2. how are Scoops going to be uncovered now. But I simply can't do both, I would be making shit Journalism that would be disrespectful to the Truth of Facts. Basically like punching Jesus in the Testicular Sac (on the Cross).


Yup. It's probably just going to be a new Dark Ages in which so many fucked things happen. Oh well! I might come back in an Explosive Development if everything turns into a massive piece of shit. I feel that there are so many Stories on here though, enough to just look back --> 'Remember when some shit about Concrete etc'.

I would like to thank all of the Internet and Readership for being interested and pumped to read of a non-stop factual barrage, and in particular a number of Great Journalists, Fine Individuals of Friendship, you know who you are (HOW?? --> PSYCHIC). It's been a rewarding initiative in so many ways! You are all welcome in the Windmill any time, if you bring food and shit.

Don't just fucking turn up empty handed. Look what happened to Slipknot.

'Nuff Respect to the Projects I'm Ghost One Love'

Just before the Whale Festival!!! NOOO you cant deprive us of that, we were relying on you bring back all the goss/news/stories/photo's of nataniel (is he real?). You must persevere!

Whats the real reason for this closure! There has to be one, especially after such sucsess and recognition! Has someone blackmailed you? Did someone chop off your hands? Manpulating girlfriend who hates your blog? Asshole Boss who hates your freelance journalism? Whyyyyy?

There's one, and only one excuse I would accept.

Only one reason that would be suitable.

Holla IOYC!

Your timely resignation is just another example of your magnificent comedic timing!

I will download your entire blog. And print it out. And show it to people who can't afford a computer.

Sad, sad day. It's clear that if the entire internet was represented by a 70s cop movie (which it is), IOYC would be the do-it-his-own-way/doesn't-play-by-the-book hero that viewers would try to imitate when they went back to their desk jobs/schoolyards the next morning. Also probably possessing a distinctive hairstyle (NOT CONFIRMED).

I thought this might happen, no one can keep amazing factual barrages going forever, we've got to learn to stand on our own investigative feet.

Thanks for everything Black Wind, Fire and Earth, you've given us the skills and inspiration to live and learn.....

..either that, or you've left Earth because of Erosion..thanks a bunch! (Sarcasm).

A very very sad day.

I only starting reading your facts about a month ago.

This site is pure comedy gold and will not be forgotten.

Please don't close it down

Please don't. This blog is the single greatest thing about the internet. In fact, it might even be why the internet was designed. And there's some stiff competition (university degrees by email, for example).

The genius of Hotdogs notwithstanding, this is tuly a sad day/week, yet I think BT might be on to something...

When does the book come out, IOYC? And might I suggest the title "I'M ON YOUR COFFEE TABLE"?

Fucken fuck fuck bollocks bullshit shit. That's what it is. I don't even like the effing internet except for some stuff on it. Fuck this, I'm going up the road not across the street this time.

This is truly like being punched in the Testicular Sac (on the Cross).

It is tempting/ would be very funny to smite you, but alas that would also not ===> you being on my computer.

So long, you're on my computer (in Heaven)

And we never managed to unmask you! This is tragic. How will we recognise your work in future projects? Cunningly placed in-jokes about safes perhaps?

Say it isn't so.
Please say this is just another of your journalistic concepts, perhaps investigating the mourning process of your readership.

Hey - hi. I just had a look at this Web Page and it's turned into so many Messages of Despair / Holla / WTF?!. I tell you what ---> That's nice.

But I fear some of your Comprehension Skills are a bit fucked! I'm making a new Project, it says so clearly, in English. It's not like I want to Quit Journalism, but I can't make two Dope Projects at once. I'm simply too focussed.


In answer to some other Questions, 'he owes us an Explanation' etc:

1. It is NOT because of the Probst. I am so over my (TOTALLY legitimate) fear of that dude. Thanks, Therapists!

2. I would take on Nataniel in a 1:1 ratio. I've got that dude so sussed out. [Except still pretty baffling!?!]

3. My hairstyle is best described as 'HOLY SHIT --> PROFESSIONALISM'

4. LOL unmasked etc. Like KISS!

5. "I'M ON YOUR COFFEE TABLE" --> Holy Shit. That could be just about the Illest Publication of Just In Time For Christmas ever, if there was a Publisher willing to take on that shit. Is there one big enough among you, etc. Think of all the Vested Interests who would stop at nothing to see that book BANNED (eg Tangram Association - Bring It On Motherfuckers!!!)

6. It's pretty fucked but also quite Ill to put a Child in a Maze (for life??)

7. Lumbar Supports.

Kind Regards,

Hello meathead. You say fuck a lot, and that's all.
You're leaving? This is good news; one less load of pap. Internet tripe.
You're not a journalist, you're a dope. A cut out, a stereotype. A no-talent bum.
