The Most Terrifying Bird In The World

Posted on 1 June 2021, this garnered a surprising rank of 1/NR/58. That’s a hella score for barely one year since posting it AND THE BIRD IS PURE AWESOME.

This year it occurred to me that I might add one more category – AUDIO.
For several years I’ve been posting .mp3 files of rare (and not so rare) recordings, along with a few oddities. The most popular this year was a stunner; I found a recording of an agitated penguin and slowed it way down.

Thanks for all your visits, comments, favorites and linkys, and I wish you all the best.

The .Gif Friday Post No.133 – Needlepoint Dog is Awesome!

“Needlepoint Dog” is a new entry in the Tacky Raccoons Blogoversary Hit Parade, with a score of 1/nr/19. We posted it on 25 June 2010 just days after it appeared at the source. Within 5 days of posting, it spiked, then went relatively dormant traffic-wise until February of this year and it’s been in the No. 1 slot for 6 months straight.

Not only is the concept great, the animation of the reverse side is even better. Congrats!

Although Tacky Raccoons doesn’t attract a lot of comments, we appreciate the “likes” and those who “follow” us. Now let’s talk Twitter. We’ve had an account for several years as an experiment to see how many followers we could get with the stated intent of providing absolutely no content and about 30 people played along. This is going to change.

Starting today, anyone who follows @BunkStrutts will get automatic notifications of new posts, perhaps some occasional inane snark from me, and all in fun. We’ll see where it goes, and if it clogs up my email inbox with too many Tweet notifications, I’ll deal with it. (There’s a button on the upper right sidebar to beam you over to Twitterville, too. You don’t need to sign up to Twitter to read it. We’ve done the same with FaceBook, even though I don’t use it much).

Wish you all the best,

Bunk
