Happy New Fiscal Cliff Year! Still with me so far?

Tuesday 1 January 2013, 12.01am HKT


12.01am local time, 10°C (50°F), chilly and breezy

DING! Ding! Ding!

Once a year, this comes out to remind peep’l just who (and what) is behind the unfunny hilarity of this blog.

Rest assured you won’t be bothered with this stuff until the same time next year. (Intervening shameless self-faggotry excepted.)

This year’s version contains some new material not in the original.

Recap of stories for October

Thursday 22 November 2012, 1.04pm HKT


Summary of posts and site updates for October 2012.

It is embarrassing to say the least that The Naked Listener could only manage to pen a paltry three posts for October, seriously down from his batting average of 20 post a month.

It is only by the grace of two guest writers who took up the slack that this blog continues to exist for your reading pleasure and sardonic hilarity.

The Naked Listener definitely deserves to have his knuckles rapped.

Ninety-nine percent of us spend 99% of our waking hours trying to make 99% more moolah just to make ends meet. The remaining 1% of us spend 99% of the waking hours actually looking for more ways of making more moolah. [FULL STORY]

THE STORIES

Social sins to avoid for fun and profit | 01-03 Sept 2012

Part 1 | Part 2

RULES of social intercourse change constantly. Go on, sabotage your money-earning, career-advancing capabilities. Boy and girls, I give you the common social gaffes online and in real life.

Eleven years | 11 Sept 2012

“I can forgive but I cannot forget.”

My small sacrifice | 12 Sept 2012

Some people think that I would never trim it off. A few of the more offensive types disapproves of my hairstyle. Right now, that attitude means dick to me. Now, I can truthfully say I don’t approve of theirs.

______________________________

Future vibes, future hypes | 16 Sept 2012

Let’s talk about the stuff we see, hear or read in public that give off strong future vibes. I love how it feels to see someone using crazy future technology that gets the job done right beside technology that doesn’t get the same job done.

‘We are Wall Street’: No, you’re a walnut

| 19 Sept 2012

This famous Internet meme of a Wall Street guy’s retort needs answering back, now that Quantitative Easing 3 (‘QE3′) is in the offing and our world looks set to completely implode on itself.

Knickers in a twist: Americano in China | 21-25 Sept 2012

Part 1 | Part 2

We make wrong choices now and move on in the hope that the experience should help us make better decisions later. The axiom falls apart if the wrong choice should lead to results that are very hard to fix.
