I managed to evade The Man and The Good Taste Police long enough to last one more year. It’s amazing to think that I have been writing this blog for six years. Sure, it’s little more than a hate-filled rant against Hollywood, but it still takes some effort on my part to churn out all this drivel. I don’t really know how long I’ll be writing this blog. As long as Michael Bay is making movies, though, I’ll try my best to be here to watch shit so you don’t have to. Once again, let me thank all of you who drop by and read the blog and leave comments. Awesomely Shitty wouldn’t be half as much fun without you. So, until next year, here’s a happy (shitty) anniversary to me.

Apparently, summertime is awards season. Awards season for Awesomely Shitty. That’s right, fuckos, I got not one, but two blogging awards. Hells yeah! I rule! Ahem. Okay, sure they were given to me by regular visitors, but it still counts. It’s not like the Academy is made up of anything but peers, anyway. I just count myself fortunate that so many people read my blog and don’t want to murder me. It’s amazing, really.
The Liebster Award
The Liebster Award is given to a blogger who has less than 200 followers. Liebster in German means “beloved, favorite, dearest.” The goal of the Liebster Award is the help new or growing blogs connect with other bloggers. It’s a good way for readers to discover new blogs. I was given this award from Sidekick Reviews. It’s a great blog that I highly recommend checking out. I appreciate the award, thanks a lot.
The rules for Liebster Award recipients:
- List 11 random facts about yourself.
- Answer the questions that were asked of you (by the blogger that nominated you)
- Nominate 11 other blogs for the Liebster Award and include a link to their blogs.
- Notify the bloggers of their award.
- Ask the award winners 11 questions to answer once they accept the award.
Here are the random facts: Continue reading ‘It’s Time to Honor Myself’
Well, it’s happened, folks. I’ve wasted five perfectly good years of my life working on this blog. I’d like to thank those of you who drop by and leave comments and/or hate messages on a regular basis. You know who you are. Without you, trashing shitty movies and anime wouldn’t be half as much fun.
To celebrate the big day, Mrs. Brik and I decided to go to Hawaii. We stayed at a luxurious private beach, drank the finest champagne, snorkeled off the coast, and ate the flesh of endangered species. I may or may not have participated in hunting humans for sport. Hey, you only turn five once, right? Might as well live it up.
As a treat for all of you, I have put links to the most popular posts of all time from the last five years. If you have already seen these, now is your chance to relive the magic. If you haven’t, please enjoy.

Let’s see if The Man allows me to go another year.
As you can see, the logo at the top of the page has changed once again. It’s the fourth banner featured at Awesomely Shitty. This stunning artwork was brought to you by Chaz the Silencer, the same genius who created the site’s second banner. He’s obviously a rock star, a sex god, and a pillar of humanity. Be sure to check out his blog to pay the man some respect. I really like this logo for a few reasons. First, the colors are fantastic. Second, it is unique and funny. And third, it features an example of something awesome and something shitty (with the shitty thing getting destroyed): Conan the Barbarian and Lucky Star. Well, I hope you like it, too, because you’ll be looking at it for at least a year. Hopefully, Awesomely Shitty will continue to be your go-to place for the worst reviews on the Internet in 2013!
Four years already, huh? That’s a long time filled with a lot of insults. If this blog was a four year old human, it would be able to do a lot of stuff by now, including:
- Cooperates with other children –> there is a blog roll on the side of the page
- Talks about interests and disinterests –> that much is obvious
- Can’t tell the difference between real and make-believe –> that would explain my unadulterated rage
- Knows basic rules of grammar such as “he” or “she” –> in light of the “irregardless” post, I’d say this is a yes
- Can sing a song or poem such as “Wheels on the bus” –> at least this involves singing
- Tells stories –> such as the Tale of the iPhone
- Can say first and last name –> you mean “Awesomely” and “Shitty”, right?
- Knows the names of some colors and numbers –> as long as they are black, white, red, orange, and blue – and let’s just forget the whole numbers thing
- Understands the idea of counting –> Transformers 1, Transformers 2, Transformers 3, etc.
- Uses scissors –> but only to cut out pictures of Michael F. Assbender and put them on my wall
- Plays board or card games –> do drinking games count?
- Hops and stands on one foot for two seconds –> too lazy to try
- Catches a bounced ball –> too lazy to try
- Can pour own drinks –> for the aforementioned drinking games
Wow, it’s just like this blog is a real person! So, happy (shitty) four year anniversary to me! Until next time, amigos (fuckos).
I’m not someone who is really into awards. Usually, they are just an excuse for people to congratulate themselves, and serve as nothing more than an ego boost for the fragile and simple-minded. However, I am really into promoting myself. I’ll do it in any number of grotesque and degrading manners. So, if I have to talk about awards in order to self-promote, then so be it.
I recently joined the Large Association of Movie Blogs (AKA largeassmovieblogs lol) as a means to get my hate filled messages out to the masses. They are doing an annual award for the members of the association. I figured, hey why not try and get nominated for something? After all, this is the best/worst blog on the internet. I should at least be eligible for most offensive blog, right?
While I think you should nominate me for everything, I probably have the best shot at the following: Funniest Writer (look no further than the hipster post), Best Ratings System (all the other writers use stars, letter grades, or no rating at all – my system of Awesome – Good – Average – Bad – Shitty clearly is way more imaginative), Best Running Feature (Classically Shitty or Four Horsemen of the Filmmaking Apocalypse), and Best Movie Reviewer (who else will honestly stick it to Hollywood time and time again?).
So, if I’ve ever made you laugh (or more likely get super angry), then head on over to The Lamb and nominate me. Nominate me for whatever you want. The poll is a link near the bottom of the page. If not, go to hell. That is all.
Everybody hates it when their favorite website changes. Whether it’s the background, the header, the formatting, or an entirely new theme. Change throws people into panic and rage. Fortunately, Awesomely Shitty is no one’s favorite website, so I don’t think anyone will mind if I change the logo. Many thanks go out to myself for the fantastic design this year. Feel free to leave your comments about how much I ruined the website by changing the logo. Or don’t.
After writing this blog solo for three and a half years, it looks like a newcomer is stepping up to the plate to lend me a hand. Mrs. Brik is going to be contributing some posts every so often. Having a woman around should class this joint up a bit, don’t you think? But don’t let her gender fool you. She’s every bit as sarcastic as me, and hates pretty much everything, too. We are really a match made in heaven. On second thought, she’s even more hardcore than I am. If you thought I hated everything, well, her cynicism puts me to shame. I look like Pollyanna in comparison. Anyway, expect a post from Mrs. Brik soon, and enjoy.
Well, I finally decided to join Twitter. Don’t ask me why, I have no clue. Like all my endeavors, it most likely occurred in a drunken haze. As I mentioned before, Twitter is Facebook’s younger, mentally challenged cousin. At least now I can post random shit nobody cares about with more frequency. So, for the three of you out there that read this site, you can now read a few updates in the interim between my regular blog posts. As this site happens to be the best/worst blog on the internet, I hope that @awesomelyshitty can be best/worst Twitter feed on the internet. Click here to check it out. I normally would think of this as selling out, but then again, I don’t get paid.
Another year has come and gone, and people keep on telling me what an idiot I am for trashing their favorite shows in my 20 Shittiest Anime of the Decade post. Let’s face facts, people. If you really think that Kanon was something more than a decroded piece of crap then you should just accept that our taste in anime is incompatible. I like stuff that’s good, and you like shit. Of course, shit being popular is what keep the world economy going, and also what fuels the fire for my outrage, which in turn keeps this blog going. Also, I’ve paradoxically been accused of being a hipster, which means that some people failed to read my post on Fake Indie Movies. Overall, it has been a good year. I got a new logo, tons of great spam, and I completed my expose on the 4 Horsemen of the Film-Making Apocalypse. I can’t ask for much more than that. So, until the day that the world comes to its senses and stops endorsing shitty entertainment, I’ll keep posting reviews of things I hate (and sometimes love). After all, this is the best/worst blog on the Internet. Happy (shitty) three year anniversary, Awesomely Shitty!
