The Slap Bet: 10 Days of Austin City Limits Coverage

Share/Bookmark
Posted by admin On September - 16 - 2008

~Z.T.~ Andy- I challenge you to a slap bet. That’s right, a slap bet.

The bet is we must each write one preview article a day leading up to ACL. We’ve got 10 days. Any day you don’t post, a slap is acquired. If you go two days without posting, you are owed three additional slaps. I pray it doesn’t get to three consecutive days.

It’s meant to be inspirational. Our readers will know they can expect two articles a day and if they don’t they’re gonna hear about the slaps.
I phoned Mr. Shore yesterday evening to propose said slap bet and he denied my inaugural request. Well, sir. You’ve been challenged publicly. Will you step up and accept? Or will I just dominate you in my festival preview coverage, It’s up to you.

I also propose that our readers will be allowed to slap us. All we need now is a slap bet commissioner. Who wants it?

    Zack has been informed that if he slaps me, it will be the last thing he ever does.

    Andy has been informed that the slap commissioner will frown upon that very much. Also, refusing a slap bet is pretty pretty pretty pretty weak.

    I think that if Andy doesn’t take the slap bet he’s a straight up punk, a little girl even. And under those circumstances I wouldnt want to read his little girl, punk posts anyway.

  4. Teibs Said,

    what say you Andy? Can you handle a slap bet? You’ve been better about posting than I have lately…and my internet is currently out at home. The odds are in your favor.

    Obviously Cristina is not a regular reader. Otherwise she would remember that Zack lost all of his rock cred when he ranked Simon & Garfunkel higher than Aerosmith for bands he would rather play as on Guitar Hero. I love Paul Simon as much as the next guy, but his guitar work is nothing compared to Joe Perry.

  6. Shore Said,

    There will be no slap bet, no matter how much you get your friends to talk trash to me on the internet. I’ve got flamed on here before, and I’m sure this won’t be the last time. Whenever I feel down about these internet meanies, I’ll just remember that I have a fan club of homophobic, Canadian, Catholic school boys.

  7. Teibs Said,

    That Simon and Garfunkel thing was such a grasp at straws by you right there. Aww I lost all my rock cred forever. Wahh. Not buying it. All i’m saying is…let’s preview the pants off this festival. it’s the first one in a month and a half and we don’t have one after it for months.

    Fact: he who declines a bet of slap has a wide vagina.

  8. Cristina Said,

    Would you rather have a fan club of homophobic, Canadian, Catholic school boys or the respect of people who occasionally read your blog?

    Take the bet. If only to educate people like me, people who don't understand why ranking Simon & Garfunkel higher than Aerosmith is such a big deal.

    Do it for us. And because you dont want people to think you have a wide vagina.

  9. Shore Said,

    I never said I wouldn’t do the coverage. I’m just sorry that Zack needs the fear of me slapping him to get him to post on the blog nowadays. There will be no slap bet, and I hope Zack can maintain his motivation towards this blog without it.

  10. Cristina Said,

    In that case… I’ll check back frequently for updates. Looking forward to the excellent Austin City Limits coverage to come.

  11. Teibs Said,

    well, it was partly fear of the ten year anniversary of you slapping me, but mostly I wanted our readers to know they’d get two a days.

    And I was hoping I’d have some kind of bender going from friday to sunday and have to post from my iphone behind a starbucks and barely get a post in…don’t you see the potential for slapping me silly?

    SLAP. BET. SLAP. BET. SLAP. BET.

  12. Shore Said,

    Is your next move to throw a tantrum? More name calling? Grow up, or at least stop trying to pull me down to your level.

    C’mon, Andy. Don’t be a pussy!
