A minimalist masterpiece.
In between emailing cults, writing about dangerous virgins, pestering activists and harassing strangers on the internet about the validity of the satanic rituals they published online sometimes you just have to sit back and admire the beauty in simplicity.
Which leads us to: Crouton.Net
Go on – go visit it- I’ll wait. It won’t take long for you to understand the concept of the website.
Pretty cool, huh?
Crouton.Net is just that. A fuckin’ crouton. Just drifting in a sea of nothingness. It sort of moves if you drag on it? I even focused in on the poorly animated. I am not a crouton expert but I can confidently state that I have seen better looking croutons.
So… not much is known about the site. I think I traced it back to December 2010? That was its earliest appearance. It has remained unchanged since. No one seems to know who made it or is taking any responsibility for it. Just a strange website being paid for for the past eleven years for reasons far beyond my imagination.

I’d love to hear from you.
A few house keeping notes I wanted to document here to my very, very few regular readers. In the past three weeks this blog has had more views/reads/comments/likes and just about everything else than all of last year and I appreciate anyone and everyone that has taken time out of their day to read my stupid ramblings. It’s really cool to connect with real writers that actually know what they’re doing as well. I love emails and encourage you to reach out even if it’s just to shoot the breeze.
Secondly, speaking of emails – for anyone that remembers my entry about Forgotten Languages (Language of the Vampyr) I had ended the entry with a bit of a shot in the dark – asking the “leader” of Forgotten Languages to email if he/she ever read this. Assuming it would go completely unnoticed. But it did not. Ayndryl did read the post and reach out to me. They were a very good sport about the post and enjoyed and I think that was super cool. Now I’m just waiting for them to email me the cipher used to decode their brilliant coded languages. *Wink Wink*
Let’s see – anything else? I wanted to post a cheeky entry because the next two “official” ones are uncharacteristically dark with language and themes. I’m happy with how they came out and not everything can be light hearted jokes but a good balance never hurt anybody. And you got to click on a crouton for a couple minutes while you were supposed to be working. So there’s that.
I’ll leave you with an old favorite- that reminds me of my early twenties drinking too much, doing drugs at dead end jobs and embracing my personal poverty with a sense of humor. It also would surprise you how quickly I can think of a song that has a crouton reference in its lyrics. I am much more accomplished at music than blogging. Which still doesn’t say much about my creative career. Lol.
For those of you out there reading this – have a good weekend. I shall be working overtime listening to podcasts on the cold war. Until then.
