12 Months of Ass Whuppin'

Alabama Ass Whuppin's One Year Anniversary.

It all started with a trip to Palau. From there it became a forum for me to discuss politics, religion, music and most importantly The Drive-by Truckers. And for someone with a short attention span it has been an almost daily committment and ,well, I'm kinda proud of that.

I've cyber-met and met-met a ton of great people through Alabamaasswhuppin'. The beautiful and famous Ms. Jenn Bryant, MattR, marklynn, olwiggum Corey and the rest at Ninebullets, Alec from One of These Days, Mark G., Jayne, Tony, Jay from Bama, Mark M., Roel, MaddyC, Ernie, Kyle, and a ton of other folks through the DBT yahoo group.

Bluegal and Alablwag, the folks from New West, Sloan from Southern Shelter, Largehearted Boy, Townser from TheLeftisRight, commentors from across the U.S. and around the globe. Just a butt load of really, really cool, kind, funny folks. Really, I've been very, very lucky not to of had the trolls, flamers and jackasses that seem to plague other sites. Just some really great community minded folks. I'm very lucky. Sorry if I forgot to mention some folks above. I'm sure I'll be adding to the list as the day progresses.

I'm real proud of my DBT Picture Tours and Week in Reviews. Click on those links to see the archives.

I'm also proud of some of the political rantings expressed. I've refined my political commentary from "Fuck Bush" to "Motherfuck Shrub". Wow! I'm amazed at how far I've come as a political pundit.

Thanks to everyone who has visited (almost 18,000 unique individuals since November, 2005).
