Worth1000 Photoshop is the gold standard: Worth1000 Writing is the horseshit standard
Worth1000 has built a stellar reputation with its very challenging Photoshop contests and artists that rise to the challenge. Their stuff has been the fodder for countless internet hoaxes, its so real it fools experts.
However, they also dabble in “text” contests, which are writing contests. They might have been worth a C in a highschool creative writing class. If you are a serious writer, be warned, you’re wasting your time unless you want to put in a long time investment of sucking up and submitting stories for no other result than to get slapped down and put in your place.
New members are slapped down hard, with very low scores by special admins with high “karma”- this allows them to sandbag writers they don’t want to win and overrule the greater membership. If you have 200 karma (which all admins do) that means your 6 out of 10 vote counts 200 times. Its very hard to overcome a block of moderators voting en masse, since only a couple thousand votes are cast in text contests, which are much less popular than Photoshop contests.
Fake docweasels on the net
We were recently apprised of the fact that there is someone purporting to be associated with the site using the name “docweasel” and they’ve even jacked one of our avatars: docweasel facebook faker.
There’s a MySpace docweasel as well, but that’s not us either. Also, a Fark docweasel as well as comments on several other blogs attributed to docweasel, some even linking back here.
Spring is here
Spring is here. Time to hang out around the old apple tree for late munching the left over winter apples, tart from the cold weather just past, or walking to spring training in the brisk afternoon breeze, blowing away the last of winter’s chill wind and blowing in the cheers of the fans from the cheap seats.
docweasel on Worth 1000
docweasel’s first foray into one the notorious Worth 1000 Photoshop contests is an old image that didn’t follow the guidelines, broke the rules and wasn’t even a Photoshop of what it was supposed to be, but still beat nearly 2/3rds of the Worth 1000 veterans who contributed. We didn’t even use Photoshop, with all its bells and whistles and macros and filters, instead using a nearly 10 year old version of Paintshop Pro. Imagine if we’d tried!
Fuck Mohammed in the ass, fuck islamic terrorists and their supporters and enablers
EXCELLENT collection of art depicting the prophet muhammed, mohammed, whatever, and in the most insulting way possible. More of this please. We need to all stand together, print, post and publicize as much as this as possible, making things like last week’s South Park unnotable, and therefore unthreatenable.
Beautifying the internet one site at a time: Mere Rhetoric
Or TV Jesus, as it appears he has on a hoopskirt.
Someone sent me this with other inspirational pics in one of those stupid fwd: all mails, apparently unironicly.
Out front is the Native American version of the Virgin Mary, or Gestates with Hymen, as she is known in their culture.
We’re still working on it, tune in later for a better joke
Sometimes an image is so resonant, so perfectly calibrated and executed that it becomes immediately “viral”. This is one. And being so, it’s got the left scared shitless. So, being effective, it’s of course being labeled racist, as any effective attack on Obama ends up being so described.
Some assholes don’t get it. Obama is the Joker. He wants to tear it all down. He wants to destroy America. He hates America, as it is currently comprised. He detests white people and their culture and their supposed hegemony over the country. He wants a repressive, controlling central authority to take over every facet of the economy and your life. He detests liberty, he wants to repeal the 2nd Amendment and he wants to socialize, if not outright communize, the country.
Oh Goody! WordPress launches yet another crappy little theme!

Goodbye ’08 Backstage Weasels

song association::Only a Fool Would Say That
“Put down that gun, begone, there’s no one to fire upon — If she’s holding it high, she’s telling a lie — Only a fool would say that”
Last year teamdwf was hard at work designing new backstage passes for the docweaslband’s 2008 late summer tour. Here’s a selection of some of the best, submitted by team members g, Kim, d and stig.
Passes are listed by name and a song from the dwb playlist that corresponds to the inspiration for the design.
You can click on them for hi-rez versions you can print out, laminate, and use to bully your way into the VIP sections of the dwb Party Winnebago, which serves as the backstage for the county fair and harvest festival stops on the tour. See you in Davenport, Iowa, in a month!
Rejected PopOnThePop.com logos
We do a lot of design work, and sometimes the client’s execrable taste causes them to reject some perfectly lovely designs. Poponthepop.com commissioned the teamdwf design team to devise some nifty logos, with the only instruction being use a pop bottle and some bubbles, and this is what we came up with, completely from scratch.
Get Evilly Beet
How many times have you been ready for your bi-monthly foray out of your Mom’s basement, but you didn’t have that perfect T-shirt for dressing up to go to the video arcade?
Or how about that formal T-shirt, the respectable looking one that screams “This guy is innocent of all charges! She looked 17!” you need for court dates and parole hearings?
The one that tells passers-by “I heart reading celebutard blogs that tell me the very latest dumbshit thing BritBrit has done!”
The kind of teeshirt that will get you noticed by all the hot women down at the laundromat, and the envy of all the guys at the titty-bar.
You’ve been praying to Jeebus your entire life for a teeshirt that embiggening, with that kind of chick-magnet, prison-avoiding, life-affirming, penis-enhancing, monkey-proof power that could make you as awesome IRL as your internet persona is.
Well Skippy, your prayers have finally been answered.
