If I was a NASCAR automobile…

Paul Smith, Timex, Pampers, Browns, Carters, Avent, Medela, Suave, Ivory, Crest, Phillips, American Crew, Crest, Banana Republic, Gap, Clarks, Eddie Bauer, Maytag, Yami, Stouffers, Quaker Oats, Typepad.
MINI Cooper, Apple, Chevron.
Starbucks, Samsung, Microsoft, Yahoo, Typepad, Google, Odwalla, Labtec, Fellowes, Speedo, Prentice Hall, Logitech, IBM, Plantronics.
MINI Cooper, Samsung, Coke, Apple.
Subaru, Bob, Asics, Adidas, Nike, Polar, Zenith, Maytag, TiVo, Graco, Maclaren, Skip Hop, Apple, Yahoo, Typepad, Canon, Bissel, Asko, Nintendo, DirecTV, Timex, Crest, Sealy, Pampers, Scholastic

See, this is precisely why I don’t need to sell ads on my blog. Or maybe it’s a better argument for why I should. It was a bit nauseating to track the brands in chronological order and I’m sure there are many others I didn’t include. These are many of the brands I encounter on a fairly regular basis. So if I was a hot rod and was to plaster myself with ads representing my hobbies, interests, and trappings… the above list is a decent start.
If you don’t want to hear me sounding all fatherly, it would behoove you to avoid this video clip shot a couple weeks ago by a monkey. Warning: this video won’t load for all any users. This weekend I vow to bring videos to the masses. It’s my goal for Q3. I really do love goals, they keep me motivated and stuff.  EDIT – apparently I really need to work on the video thing because I can’t view it at work on my IBM computer.  I blame the fact I have an upgraded version of Mac software on my home computer and the parity between the Canadian and American dollars.  Damn you Canucks!

  1. Do you think I could get paid if I made a coat with the logos of sponsors on it and wore it everyday?

  2. Airam says:

    I had no choice but to avoid the clip since it wouldn’t load up.
    I wonder if it’s one I already watched …
    Oh and you forgot to put Blogger. Because you know I’m selfish and all. I love that you added Scholastic to the list …

  3. Amanda says:

    Interesting idea to track all the brands you come across….

  4. tori says:

    The clip isn’t working for me and now I am sad.
    I love this brand tracking thing. I would probably never have the patience to try to remember everything, but it is cool to read when other people do it.

  5. armalicious says:

    Pampers. Ha. Would your uniform say “Havret” on the back?
    Will check out the vid later this afternoon at home.
    Q3 goals? Um…you do realize that Q3 ends in a week, right? And weren’t you supposed to read some kind of book and do a report or some shit? Or was that for Q2? And why do I know your quarterly goals? Am I your boss or something? Hmmmm…now that’s a concept. Stop working and blog more. There you go…new Q3 goal.

  6. brookem says:

    goals are really swell. and tps reports. and i love that you said q3.
    ooffff. k, need coffee. immediately.

  7. patches says:

    I skimmed over your list, and we all know skimming gets me in sooo much trouble…and I read Tampax instead of Timex, and I started thinking WTF? Does Egan suffer from nosebleeds?
    Then I reread. Whoops!

  9. patches says:

    Crap double post

  10. Amy says:

    You could always tattoo logos all over your body. I hear some companies pay people to do that.
    The video didn’t work for me either…strange, I usually can see quicktime movies.

  11. justrun says:

    Wow, my racecar would be one busy-looking car, too.
    I’ll have to check out the video at home… good to have goals, yo!
    Oh yeah, and I’ve been meaning to say thanks for visiting the archives. It’s so easy to forget what’s in there.

  12. armalicious says:

    Egan does use Tampax…funny that he left it off.

  13. meno says:

    Tazo, Kashi, REI, Levis, New Balance, Top Foods, Audi, Trader Joes, Heinz, Dicks, Robert Mondavi, MD Formulations, Oil of Olay, Tivoli, Red Robin, Uwajimayas, IBM.
    and so on. I’m going to look into some sponsorships for myself.

  14. churlita says:

    I can’t wait for the videos for the masses.

  15. Sandra says:

    Would I be a really wimpy driver if I had a “Lifetime” logo on my car? 😉

  16. liv says:

    You bitch. You’ve got an Asko?
    = new level of respect for La Famille Lessinges

  17. We are SO overly inundated with ads.

  18. Eunice says:

    That’s funny, because on the first day of my marketing class, we had to name every brand we encountered that day from the time we woke up. It’s crazy to think of how many brands we come into contact with on a regular basis.
    Coming live to you from my HP.

  19. armalicious says:

    Nice edit. I don’t know what you’re doing and why it’s not working, either. You know I have a mac and upgraded QT, so theoretically it should work for me, but it’s not. But I do think something is up with QT videos because the last few times I’ve tried to upload to youtube, the audio & video sync was off, so last night I exported to a different extension and that helped a bit.
    I don’t even know what the fuck I just typed.

  20. armalicious says:

    You need to stop working.

  21. armalicious says:

    Cinnamon rolls are ready to bake in the morning. To keep with your brand theme, I used Pillsbury flour, and Fleschmann’s yeast, C&H Sugar, and a few other things I can’t remember off the top of my head. McCormick’s cinnamon.

  22. Pants says:

    IF you were a hot rod?

  23. Tall Chick says:

    Are you hitting on me?
    And ditto to Pants.
    if you were a NASCAR automobile, I’m pretty sure you’d commit autocide.

  24. Tall Chick says:

    Bow to the mistress of all puns, cuz that was pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

  25. Tall Chick says:

    Not that I’m insinuating you’re sterile, by any means!

  26. Tall Chick says:

    You’re gonna go look it up now, aren’t you?

  27. Tall Chick says:

    I can save you the trouble.

  28. Tall Chick says:

    But I’d rather soend my time filling your box with joy.

  29. Tall Chick says:

    This is how you remind me of what I really am.

  30. Tall Chick says:

    So, where’s the next contestant?

  31. Tall Chick says:

    Far Away, I’ll bet.

  32. Tall Chick says:

    Thanks for filling my box today, by the way. It was a nice surprise after a long and busy day.
    Are we having fun yet?

  33. Tall Chick says:

    Too Bad
    I am!
    Tori, your ball!

  34. egan says:

    You scared them all Candace!

  35. Tall Chick says:

    Tori’s not scared by anyone multiply commenting. I have proof at my blog.

  36. Tall Chick says:

    um, yeah, you’re up by 8
    make that 7

  37. Tall Chick says:

    Are you still offended by your hyperdrive status?

  38. Tall Chick says:

    This one time at band camp. . .

  39. Tall Chick says:

    Damn type-pad and it’s stupid robot paranoia

  40. Tall Chick says:

    I mean its
    not it’s

  41. Tall Chick says:

    it’s stupid that it’s thinking I’m a robot and putting up its verification thinggy

  42. Tall Chick says:

    There’s a wooden cheese wheel case in my living room.

  43. Tall Chick says:

    And a quillow in my rear entry

  44. Tall Chick says:

    which sounds slightly uncomfortable

  45. armalicious says:

    You kinda deserved this one, Efo…

  46. Pants says:

    Holy crap, Tall Chick is making my stalker skills look TERRIBLE!

  47. Pants says:

    My mother has apparently been reading Dooce. Thought you’d like to know.

  48. Pants says:

    I have a crush on a customer at work.

  49. Pants says:

    The air in Utah is so dry it looks like I’m wearing a peel-off face mask.

  50. Pants says:

    My friend Sarah said to tell you thank you for introducing yourself.

  51. Pants says:

    I LOVE my new MacBook!

  52. Pants says:

    I suppose I’ll leave your blog be for a little while and come back in twenty or thirty seconds to bomb you with more comments.

  53. Tall Chick says:

    Go Pants!!!
    I came here expecting Warp Speed posting, and — aw who am I kidding? I wasn’t really.
    Maybe if you email me enough or leave enough French messages on my phone. . .

  54. tori says:

    Oh, I didn’t know we were playing this! Sorry! I’ll try to keep on top of my blog stalking next time!
    (and I read all the comments leading up to mine…don’t I get an award for that?)

  55. Tall Chick says:

    There is still a wooden cheese wheel case in my living room. A guy at the gorcery store gave it to Fishy. I’m not sure what he’s going to use it for. Legos, probably.

  56. Tall Chick says:

    I can has cheezburger?

  57. ChickyBabe says:

    Couldn’t get the clip to load. Glad Quicktime wasn’t on the list.

  59. cindra says:

    i am sick of name brands. and sick of name dropping. i just try to buy everything non-name brand lately. ‘cept for electronics of course, cos my Mac is my lifeline to the rest of you in blogland.
    i hope by tomorrow there is a video that i can actually access! argh!
    hope your week-end is good.

  60. armalicious says:

    Why don’t you ever visit my blog anymore? Do you hate me?

  61. armalicious says:

    So is this how it’s gonna be? No blogging for you during the weekend or something?

  62. armalicious says:

    sonofabitch! Typepad’s new comment feature shit really sucks. It’s slowing me down, yo!

  63. armalicious says:

    You know what I was just thinking? I’m betting after that 300 comment fiasco last month that TypePad had to come up with something for it’s servers.
    Or not…but it’s fun to think that our shenanegans may have caused this new annoyance.

  64. armalicious says:

    I’m bored, Monkey Boy.
    So bored that I watched NFL today.

  65. furiousball says:

    The parity between the dollars is one thing, but the Habs do have national healthcare. I covet that. I’m willing to eat back bacon and listen to Bryan Adams for better health care coverage…ok maybe not the Bryan Adams…how about a mullet and constantly talk about Gordie Howe? Allegiance to Don Cherry?

  66. brandy says:

    Whoa. I missed an Tall Chick/Armalicious commenting bonanza, I feel sad. But, I have to say that I love, love, love that Anna has such sweet socks. I had no idea they made them that small. (that’s what she said). Have a good monday dude.

  67. brandy says:

    Where did my comment go?

  68. egan says:

    Brandy – they put comments on two pages now if they surpass 50. Sucks to be popular. Sucks to have to respond to 30+ commenters. Maybe I will only comment back to you. Think anyone will notice? If I put up a new post, nobody will notice… I guarantee it.

  69. brandy says:

    Ahhh eganalicious, the burden you have to carry being the most popular man in the blogosphere. How do you manage? As for the comments, I’ve noticed I’ve gotten really bad at replying. If you are in the first 10 comments, I respond quickly, after that, I fall apart like a train wreck. As for a new post, I can guarantee everyone will notice. Hey wait, why don’t you put a recipe and see if you can get at least 40 comments. Oh wait, did that already.

  70. brandy says:

    And can I just say, that you don’t have to respond to my last comment? There. Now you have one less (two less, I won’t make you respond to this one either) to reply to. I worry about you getting carpal tunnel.

  71. egan says:

    Brandy – my wrist muscles are in great shape and don’t ask why. Just take my word on it. I love typing, it’s a hobby of mine. I remember the recipe thing all too well. I may have lost a few readers with that stunt, but oh well. At least I got you to love me even more than KC. That’s what really matters most.
    I hear you on the first ten comments thing. It gets really hard to maintain when they explode. Mainly when a certain blogger comments over and over, that does me in.

  72. armalicious says:

    You disappoint me…

  73. egan says:

    Armalicious – yeah, I guess Candace is disappointed in me too. I’ve been demoted on her blog, labeled as in the “dog house”. How kind of her. Perhaps I will type up something new later today. Your comments above were quite lovely. Blogging on the weekend is much tougher than before as I’m busy chilling with the family.
    Not sure about the Typepad thing. My guess is the pages load faster if they restrict the comments to 50 per page and that’s why they probably made the change. You watched the NFL? Where’s your blog? I spent 5 minutes guessing a new URL, but no dice.

  74. armalicious says:

    Awww, you know I kid. You spend all the time in the world with your family. And being in the dog house is sometimes a good thing, isn’t it? No? Oh.
    You really spent 5 minutes guessing, eh? Interesting. It’s similar to previous ones, yet completely different. Something I’ve never used before.

  75. egan says:

    Armalicious – I know you kid and that’s all good. I tried many many times using various names associated with your existence. Being in the dog house can be a good thing? My family says hi.

  76. egan says:

    Tall Chick – you’re too good at this game and you’ve roped in Pants and Armalicious too. Awesomeness. You love talking about your/my box. You’re quite naughty.

  77. Tall Chick says:

    You’re against multiples?
    And hey, YOU wanted out of Hyperdrive, so out you went.
    Manda – I hate the new 50 per page, too. Talk about slowing things down. Meh.

  78. tori says:

    “my wrist muscles are in great shape and don’t ask why”
    That is exactly why I always read every single comment here. Hope you had a great weekend! (that last sentence was not related to the quote above…I wasn’t trying to imply anything at all).

  79. egan says:

    Tall Chick – I didn’t want to be put in the Dog House. You might as well as me to lick my balls or some crazy shit. I’m not a happy blogger Candace. I spend all this time commenting on your blog and you put me in the dog house? Lame.
    Tori – you weren’t supposed to read that. You’re implying stuff? Ha, I love it. The weekend was good and I plan on updating my blog very soon. I have to find a firefighter.

  80. brookem says:

    thank you for your assistance today finding my fireman.
    he was NOT in aisle five. ugh.

  81. Tall Chick says:

    So by boycott, do you mean you want to leve the sidebar, or???

  82. Scott says:

    So I have been reading some blogs for like a year and I keep coming across your ‘mug’ in the comments sections. Figured it was time that I stopped by. Great blog!!

  83. egan says:

    Brookem – that’s my job, helping people via the internet. Aisle five is where you find the chocolate sauce.
    Tall Chick – ha, you do what you got to do woman. I like the current label.
    Scott – hey, hello and welcome to my blog. I see you on Celeste’s blog all the time. How goes it?
