Bloggaday 344 – The Third Great Trigady pt 1
By David “Tom-ish” Dysart
The time has come yet again for another clipshow, this time the last for Bloggaday: Year 1. There’s still a few more regular posts coming, but The Third Great Trigady is going to fill most of the remaining year. Each of these posts contain some of the best of the last third of the Bloggaday, and my new comments add up to the 500-word word count.
Enjoy a look back at the last 100 posts. Until next time…
“Chuck: Everybody is all freaked out about nuclear power plants when we have a giant ball of death fire floating above us that is on fire and continues to flame on through nuclear power, throwing radiation at us, slamming and crushing our weakening magnetic field without mervy”
Bloggaday 246 was pretty decent. I was a bit torn about who to give which role as the character definitely has Tom-ish elements. I think it’s worth a read though, so you can just follow the link above the quote.
“Tom: You mean The Second Great Trigady?
Chuck: Yes, yes, yes. The awesome rekindling of the magic that is the Bloggaday. Seriously, can we just get this over with?
Tom: URL in Monday to find out which one, if any, of these are able to snag and SotW victory.”
SotW 21 fell in among the Second Great Trigady, but it still put on a pretty solid show in my opinion. It looks like this was during Chuck’s bout with depression, which amused me slightly.
“Tom: Don’t worry. It’s like riding a bike. Just start going and you’ll finish in no time. Especially since you haven’t done it in a while.
Chuck: Noo, no, no, no.
Tom: Oooo. Did you get that part where he was 25 the first time he did it?
Tom: Oh, oh, oh. What about how he cried after the first time he did it.
Paul: No, I was a bit slow starting up.
Tom: And join us Wednesday for the conclusion. Have a great Muesday, everyone.
Chuck: Wait, what?
Tom: Monday and Tuesday. You know, since we won’t see them until Wednesday.
Chuck: You are a moron. A fu-“
The first 200 words of SotW 22 sounded like Tom was trying to get Chuck to… well, if you read it, you’ll get the picture. It was actually just to get Chuck out of his depression and give an intro to the show.
“Tom: Hello, folks. I hope you had a great MUESDAY. I know I did.
Chuck: Really? Again with the Mues-
Tom: Yes, Chuck, I had a fantastic Muesday. I dare say… it was the best Muesday of my life. Did you have a bad Muesday? Is that why you have such a bitter hatred of Muesday? If that’s all it is, then it’s just a simple matter of restructuring your operant conditioning.
Chuck: Well, what are they?
Tom: Since you asked, I’ll beat around the bush a little.”
BAM! I went all psychologist on you all for SotW 22 pt 2. And then I followed that “beating around the bush” thing into a “Chuck’s wife” joke, but you’ll have to read the Bloggaday for that one. Don’t worry, there’s a whole other plot point surprise you read it.
“After digging through megabytes of code and interpreting social relevance, he had to pair each one with a corresponding song.
Bite by Bite, he had to construct a baseline for Bloggaday Newcomers. Survivors of The Second Great Trigady would also need something, something to reminisce about… before the second Trigaday ended and left in its wake an interwebbal void that would scar the tubes for generations to come.
By the end, he had chosen six Bloggadays that would guide the Bloggaday Readers in their path for enlightertainnment.”
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this Bloggaday. If you are at all curious about the bit that ends every blog post I do, then this a must-read for you. Also, that thing changes for each Trigady.
“Alright, enough of that nonsense. Here’s a little basic forwonwon.”
259 was a continuation from the last post. It not only describes the Post Up though, but also the Bloggaday in general. Again, if you’re curious, it’s a good read. If not, then I would pass on it.
“The feud started years ago. The two competitors met in grade school when they first clashed heads. During the annual fair on campus, the rivalry was born. David, the Bloggaday Author, was defeated and humiliated. After that day, it would be quite some time before the two would pit their skills yet again, but that day came…
Again, they went head to head, and the beloved Bloggaday Author was thwarted again. With object failure, he left the patch, a defeated man.
And so starts my story of triumph.

260 is actually one of my favorite Bloggadays me thinks. I enjoyed writing and reading it. SO I suppose it would be recommended Bloggaday reading.
“WOOHOO! In yo face rock walls everywhere.
So… the end???”
Not a terribly good post, but I can assure you, this was neither an end for rock climbing nor an end for rock climbing posts. I know, that latter one is a bit depressing, huh?
“Clouds dimmed the valley, but the sky made no promise of rain. Sharing the view of the impotent cover,”
My first FU, wait, perhaps I should define that. FU stands for “Fiction Untitled.” I suppose that could be taken another way though. I enjoyed this bit of fiction, but this post only contained a thumbnail of it.
“Tom: Yes… Maybe… Eventually… Definitely… We’ll get to them.
Tom: This is a written blog. You don’t have to do the air quotes, Chuck. I’m sure Paul can figure it out.”
SotW 23 was weird. I often spin off into tangents, but this SotW series was unusually long. Also though, I announce the Song of the Week on the first post. That almost always gets saved for the last post of a multi-post week.
“Tom: Well, to build what little suspense we can, we’ll be telling our fine, brilliant, fantastic Bloggaday Reader opening parenthesis ess closing parenthesis about why SotW 23 was so late, an upcoming week of fiction, and the Tom Standard that we teased yesterday.
Chuck: Well, The Second Grea- What the hell are you doing?
Tom: Reading. Go ahead.
Tom: Really? Again with the air quotes? Jeeze. It’s not like I would pay more attention to your talking if I wasn’t reading. When you pause, I’ll just agree with you, and if there’s a lul, I’ll just assume you’re done and take over. It’s not exactly brain surgery.
Tom: Mhmm, Chuck. I couldn’t agree with you more.
Tom: Oh, a Tom Standar-
Chuck: I wasn’t done, Tom! I was telling you you don’t do anything here and you should just quit!
Tom: I swear, I’m going to have a cliché intervention for you one day. I already talked about it with your wife last night.”
SotW 23 part 2 ended with a punch line, a Tom Standard actually, but you’ll just have to read the original Bloggaday to find out what it was… ^.^
“Tom: And it’s awesome. It’s a kick square to the balls.
Tom: Mhmm, that’s right.`
Tom: That’s right, Chuck.`
` Read yesterday’s Bloggaday for this run-on joke. (http://tiny.cc/Bloggaday264)”
The whole “kick to the balls” thing in SotW 23 part 3 is in reference to the Naruto manga where the Uchiha brothers, Sasuke and Itachi, finally have fisticuffs.
“Tom: Oh, that’s right. A Tom Standard is… It’s like when I say I sleep with your wife or call you a douc-
“Tom: Oh, well when your wife rolls, she likes having a posse, and when we stop down because she’s feeling a little chafed, we have to talk about something.”
“Tom: Alright, I’LL get ahold of him. Call douchebag…
Phone: Calling: Chuck Der”
“Tom: You are a sad little man.”
“Tom: And the cliché douche bag’s own unoriginal terminology.”
“Tom: Just a little prank virus that involved a photoshopped version of your wife in a situation that will probably land me in jail if someone under the age of 18 happens to have your email address. ”
“Tom: And remember, you heard it here first, Bloggaday Readers. “F**K YOU” all the way!”
“Tom: I kid because I love…
Tom: Your wife…”
“Tom: Yeah, but from my own disdain for you, not because David asked me too.””
Tom’s explanation of a “Tom Standard” gets cut off in SotW 23 part 4, but showing is always better, so the end of the post has several examples of “Tom Standards.”

New to the Bloggaday? These are the essential posts to see
158 – Boxer V Brief – Short, concise joke machine and a DYNAMIC ENTRANCE! to my favorite Bloggadays of the Second Trigaday
159 – A Phthalates-filled Sbarro Breadstick – This was just a funny Bloggaday despite the essence being something no one will get unless the look up what a phthalate is
174 – FNtCCA,aToTbDD– While I think it’s clear I rarely EDIT the Bloggaday, this train-of-thought post shows how much I have to FILTER it…
183 – SotW 13 – This one had it all. Pretty much every bit that’s been a major player in the SotW made its way into this one, so it’s a good one to try.
134 – SotW 5 – This particular Song of the Week featured the characters a bit truer to their original concept. After a while, I started liking Tom too much and changed him a bit which caused changes to Chuck.
227 – PWND: TSHBRotCCPS pt16 was some solid fiction content. Plus, that was probably some of the finest Final Thought I’ve ever thought up.
Close the screen, the awesome’s getting out
