Congratulations, Ace
— rdbrewer

It's the tenth anniversary of Ace of Spades HQ. Ace's first post consisted of two words, "First post." It was on December 30, 2003. Very soon after that, he came up with the Dowd-O-Matic (which still works) and The Definitive D&D Guide to the Democratic Presidential Candidates, which, if I recall correctly, was his first post to be linked by some bigger sites. So, within the first few weeks he was already gaining notoriety.

Ace was looking for ideas about best posts. Part of the problem with that is there are so many. Just pick a random week over the last ten years, and one can find several outstanding posts. The archives are in the right sidebar, way down near the bottom. Scroll down, pick a date, and take a look. A lot of good stuff there.

From December 30, 2003:

THE DONKEY

Just a little Poe-parody we here at Ace of Spades HQ wrote. Be aware, the poem contains flagrant potty-mouth.

The Donkey


Once upon a midnight gloaming, my mouth agape and whitely foaming,

my frantic mind e'er roaming, roaming o'er outrages of liberal lore,

I gave my dork a playful slapping, setting my balls slowly flapping, but suddenly there came a tapping,

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -

Only this, and nothing more.'


Ah, distinctly I remember, as the calender thinned e'er closer to November,

tugging at my flacid member, trying to forget the anguish Bush v. Gore,

But still I awaited new elections; - and vigorously I stroked my erections,

To fancies suiting my predilections -

dreams of Bush's eviction, thoughs of Cheney's Halliburton conviction,

the proof of quagmire prediction, and avenging the crucifixion of sainted Martyr Albert Alphonse Gore -

But all this was madness; dreams only and only dreams

and surely nothing more.

And so in thought, my schlong palm-wrought, the pulsing urgency of my cock demanded more

But my jacking had to be stopped; just as I was recalling a a feel I once copped

off Eleanor Mondale, in nineteen eighty-four;

And so having paused my bishop-beating, I stood there anxiously repeating

`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -

Just a guy from NARAL entreating entrance at my chamber door;-

Let me with my visions of the Daughters Gore.'


And so the pulsings of my cock grew stronger; and my weiner grew still longer,

but even now more urgently came the tapping at my door,

`Please!' I cried in frustration, `You're ruining my masturbation,

How can I continue stroking while you;re so insistently poking,

And so insistently poking, poking at my chamber door,

Thou hath spoilt my chicken-choking!' - here I opened wide the door; -

Darkness there, and nothing more.


Of that darkness deeply drinking, my dinky winky, e'er shrinking,

Thinking, thinking thoughts I'd scarcely dared to dream before--

But the silence was oppressive, and the Patriot Act so repressive,

And the only signal there expressive was the whispered word, `'04!'

This I whispered back, and an echo chanted back the word, `'04!'

Stiff I was, stiff like Albert Gore.

Back into the chamber turning, my choad within me burning,

Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.

`Surely,' said I, `surely something at my window chants;

Let me tuck my wiener into my pants, and with dork pant-sheathed let me this mystery explore -

Let give my prick a rest and this mystery explore; -

Let me venture, venture out beyond the safety of my door.


I stepped fearfully into the night, clutching throat and warding fright,

and then I smelled something foul, as foul as anything I'd smelled before.

For in the gloaming was something rank, filling my nose with a bestial stank,

and there a shadowy figure of imposing girth, sniggering with malicious mirth,

Surely it could not be--

husky huckster Michael Moore??!

Open here I flung the shutter, raging like a Earth-First nutter,

In there stepped a strange donkey, draped in a campaign poster for Al Gore.

Not the least obeisance made he; not an instant stopped or stayed he;

But, without a word in passing, his butthole venting and gassing, he crapped a load of crap upon my chamber door -

Crapped upon my Restoration Hardware chamber door -

Crapped, and shat, and nothing more.


Then this wicked ass began beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,

By the lunatic grin and crazy countenance it wore,

`Though thy droppings be upon my door, thou,' I said, `art sure not crass.

wild-eyed and lunatic ass wand'ring in from some Berkeley or Massachusetts shore -

Tell me what hath driven you from darkling domains to take a dump upon my modest door!'

Quoth the donkey, `Wait till 04.'


Much I marvelled this strange ass to hear discourse so plainly,

Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;

For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being

Ever yet was blessed with seeing talking jackass poop upon his chamber door -

crapping and shitting on the Mother Jones magazines lying near my chamber door,

shitting on the collected works of Cornell West on a shelf along my floor,

With such message as `Wait till '04.'


But the donkey, sitting lonely on the stoop, having now pooped out a stinky poop,

Spake just this command, as if his soul in this demand he did outpour.

Nothing further then he uttered - nor his tail he even fluttered -

Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have shat my door before -

On the morrow the ass will leave me, as my hopes have flown with Al Gore.'

Then the ass said, `Wait till 04.'


Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,

`Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,

Caught beneath our fascist chimp master, reeling from economic disaster,

Followed fast and followed faster till his brayings one burden bore -

Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore

Of 'Wait Till '04.'


Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed by the donkey's anal censer,

the stink of donkey-floppings whisping o'er the bust of Howard Dean standing by my chamber door.

`Ass,' I cried, `by thy words thou hath pained me - by these poopstains hath thou stained me!

'Away, Strange Ass, away and bray no more, dismaying me with memories of Al Gore!

'I pray thee mercy and stop, stop reminding me of that Tennessean bore!'

Quoth the donkey, `Wait till 04.'


`Be that word our sign of parting, ass or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting, as the ass began loudly farting -

`Stop rubbing your ass all over my chamber door!

'Leave no brown loaf as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!

'Leave my loneliness unbroken! - stop crapping all over my floor!

'Take thy ass away from this place, and stop reminding me of Al Gore!'

Quoth the donkey, `Wait till 04.'


And that donkey, never flitting, still is sitting, still is shitting,

On the "Save the Whales" welcome mat lying by my chamber door;

O Cursed Ass! What mischief hath thou arranged, my fragile psyche thou hath ill deranged,

'from my mind hath thou all sense estranged, filling me with false hope that all might be changed,

'changed-- do not tempt me with fancies strange, that the fascist chimp might yet be exchanged

'for President Albert Alphonse Gore!'

And yet the evil ass still is sitting, his dirty ass ever shitting,

shitting o'er the crystal unicorns arranged upon my floor;

And dares me yet to dream, dream of taking the White House once more, of Borking judges on the Senate floor,

of paying unwed mothers, cutting the military like we've never cut before,

legalizing pot, hugging trees, and giving heroin needles to the poor,

My mind has become unhinged; I've joined the political fringe!

Just you all wait -- wait till 04!

Here's to the next ten years, Ace.

Posted by: Tami at December 30, 2013 10:54 AM (bCEmE) Well, I can say that the facts as presented by opposing counsel are notable for the exclusion of the following relevant events (list of events). Additionally, opposing counsel fails to advise the court that the entire context of the matter at issue is (full statement of thingy [ thingy being the technical term ]). Party X respectfully submits that the position advocated by opposing counsel is lacking support in either the facts or law. Or, you know, lying fuckwit. You know, the D&D list of candidates may have been what got me to this hive of scum and villainy. Otherwise, I have no idea how I fell into the Sarlacc's mouth.

70 tl;dr (somebody had to say it) To choose to act is to commit oneself to a course, with all its unpredictable consequences. A project, especially as it involves others, becomes a thing in itself, which grows beyond its originators. I sometimes wonder whether Ace had any idea at the outset what forces and personalities his HQ would involve. Hope Ace has no (significant) regets, and the bennies always outweigh the hassles.

I can't remember how I found the HQ.  I think Insty might have linked or mentioned Ace, but the details - like my waistline - are distant memories.  Lurked a long time, only posted occasionally (under another nic), met the Head Ewok at a Boston meetup, then went back to lurking until coming on board with movie stories a little while after Vic began his morning roundup.

 

If I could treat you all to a round of your favorite beverage, I would.  Failing that, let me thank Ace, the cobs and all of you for giving me news and laughs for all these years.

 

Live long and prosper, Ace.

Wow.  Amazing.  I still remember linking through NRO to that D-and-D post. 

LONG LIVE THE AOSHQ!! 

As much as I love the retro-tech feel of the place, maybe some time in the next ten years, the AoSHQ blogging software will be updated to include a functioning comments section with features that were already obsolete in 2006.  Like social media links, or being able to post images, or quoting, or standard typographic characters like ampersands. 

See you all in the camps!

187 On the keyboard issue for your smartphone, get a stylus and turn off predictive typing/auto-correct. Those two things will vastly improve your posting via a smartphone.

You know that criticizing him is anti-semitic now, right? http://tinyurl.com/mjtuacq Obamacare 'Pajama Boy' Controversy Wrapped in Anti-Semitism Right Wing Anger at 'Jewish' Star of Viral Health Care Ad In fact, Pajama Boy stands at a centuries-old nexus of anti-Semitism and misogyny. As scholars including Sander Gilman and Daniel Boyarin have shown, Jewish men have been accused of being unmanly for hundreds of years – including by other Jews, such as the early Zionists, whose muscular Judaism was a direct response to diaspora Jewish emasculation. This is an old, old motif. The Jew is the Other is the Effeminate is the Liberal. He is the urbanite, the parasite, the usurer, the lawyer. His effeminacy corrupts the Volk or the Heartland or the real American values. He wouldn’t know how to drive a pick-up truck if it was on cruise control. And he definitely votes for Obama.

The Cylons themselves celebrate a monotheistic religion with a deity similar to the God of the Abrahamic religions.

And that counts none of the failures on the state exchanges or the ~5 million who have lost their insurance. Any numbers they trumpet are whistles past the graveyard.

358 Just saw a blurb on FNC that the regime is "concerned" about the numbers for Ocare aren't up to expectations. 2014 is gonna be a bitch. That would be a major concern, yes. And the thing is, people ARE going to realize (if they haven't already) that it will probably be cheaper to pay for services out of pocket and pay the penalty tax next year rather than actually pay for insurance. And, with guaranteed issue and no ability to restrict for pre-existing conditions, if you *do* get diagnosed with something big, no problem- get insurance then.

364 The radio said that they'd signed up over a million now for the Federal exchange, but the goal was three. It also doesn't count the ones who were "signed up" via the Exchange but for Medicaid. So that number is probably closer to 200,000. And probably less than that.

427 Posted by: Bitter Clinger and All That (Unexpurgated Edition) at December 30, 2013 12:19 PM (LSDdO) It's worse than that. The combination of Guaranteed Issue and the ban on Pre-Ex clauses/riders is a nuclear bomb to the healthcare industry (not just insurance- everybody). One of the primary ways insurance companies protect themselves is by rejecting people who are too costly to insure. Yes, it sucks for those people, but you have no "right" to something someone else must produce or provide. In the cases where they can't reject people, or where someone isn't so sick that a profit can't be made, but does have some major disease that skews the numbers, they use Pre-Ex clauses. "Yes, we'll cover you, but we won't cover anything regarding condition X for 12 months." By removing both of those- so now insurance companies MUST accept you regardless of health AND they can't avoid paying for a condition you had prior to obtaining insurance- you gut the insurance companies' ability to make profits. Especially with premiums as high as they are, so even more people are going to play that game. Here's the thing. Health care ain't free. The vast majority (something like 85+% last I heard) of medical bills are paid by insurance companies. Coupled with the fact that "self pay" accounts are *actually* paid at something on the order of 5%*, you can see where the insurance companies going under could nuke the entire industry- it simply won't make enough money to continue operating. (Insert suggestion of Single Payer ploy here). *- That's a rough number that came from a reimbursement specialist hired to talk to our company while I was at a claims clearinghouse. The number is old, but I can't imagine it has changed significantly. It was literally so bad that their agency recommended doctors & hospitals simply write-off any "self pay" accounts- they lost more money pursuing them than they ever recovered.

Well, crippling in the sense of "causes me to stroke out in rage dealing with random retards". Ask my friends about the time I nearly started clobbering folks with a reproduction Greek helmet. Good times, good times. Now if there's an anime room for me to wander into and emerge only for sustenance and hygiene, then I can cope...

437 *sics a daggit on an eBay seller*

$4 for the 1978 Battlestar Galactica Marvel comic is okay.  $10 in shipping?!?  From Michigan?  Frak that, talk about feldergarp.

438 How can mocking a douche for being a douche be anti-Semitic when the mock-er does not even know (or care) that the mock-ee is Jewish? Ah, but you see, you only mocked him because your Jew-dar pinged. Otherwise there is nothing mock-worth about Pajama boy. And your protestations to the contrary only prove your guilt. Star chamber jurisprudence.

439 The mailman just delivered a used copy of "The wind in the willows"- a favorite childhood book I lost with 102 Hamilton. May not even read it- just glance thru it.

For old time's sake.

See 'ya around, Alice Pauline R....

441 Crap. Gotta go write eye-watering property tax, vehicle tax, and estimated state income tax checks. Those alone will consume 15% of our income.

445 Ace: Whatever they're paying you for ads?

They're not paying you enough.

Time to run up a report on the blog stats and renegotiate that contract.

You have all the prime demographic groups during the run of the day.

446 Merovign, well it does advertise itself as 'better than life' but I think only Zaphod got to cruise in the only perfectly working box where it showed him to be the most important person ever.

Willow it does seem that way.  Alas.

Brother Cavil the anime contingent is pretty light at Pensacon, its more geared towards science fiction and fantasy.

449 So we might actually get a NEW movie out of the new timeline? Instead of just a re-imagining of an old one?

Posted by: AllenG (DedicatedTenther) Ah, F It. at December 30, 2013 12:28 PM (PYAXX)

I actually think Benedict's character could have been a new supersoldier-type villain; did not have to rehash Kahn to get the same effect. Would have been a better film. Plus now Kahn apparently has magic blood of amazingness, which he didn't have before, ugh. JJ peed the bed, then skipped off to new franchise. Love first reboot movie but good riddance. #geekrantoff

452 The first of the new ST movies was *okay* but seriously flawed, I would agree the second one wasted even more opportunities. Even with a Jerry Lewis clone as Captain Kirk. James Tiberius "Spaz" Kirk. They could have "re-imagined" Khan and not have done The Obvious with him, he could have rescued his fellows and left to found a new world, either to become enemy or ally in the future - clear that he helped Kirk not to help Kirk but himself. They just had their Massive Effects and Combat Scene planned and that was it.

455 I love masturbation poems. This is right up there with Roses are red and so is my dick. This is the first stop of my morning internet and is checked and read often throughout the day. Here's to many more years before you sell to Salem.

456 As for BSG; sure let's have Starbuck appear as a female lesbian who then gets an addadictomy but it's a botch job and (s)he(it) can then go fuck themselves.

457 Congratulations on ten years, Ace. This place is the best, and I'm hoping the next ten years are even better than the last.

461 To Ace and all the co-blogers: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND A JOB WELL DONE! HERE'S TO THE NEXT TEN YEARS! SALUTE! **Down's a Grey Goose martini straight up with 4 blue cheese stuffed olives. Slowly eats the olives while searching for the potato skins and the cheese fries**

462 Congrats, Ace. AoSphq has done more to win over people to the conservative cause than a million "Republican" David Brookses.

463 Congrats, Ace! I don't post here very often, but I read every day. About five years ago, after several years of bouncing between a few different blogs, I finally realized that this place is my true home. Here's to another ten years!

Posted by: holygoat at December 30, 2013 09:27 AM (vAiDn)

464 Congratulations Ace. You've lasted longer than a lot of the others that burned out. Wishing you at least another decade of good times, older whiskey, younger women, more money.

469 Happy blog anniversary, Ace (a day late, sue me, I was busy).  Thanks for making the blogiverse (whatever we're calling it) better.   I actually quit blogging when I did (in 2008?) because there was no way I could possibly measure up to this place, and by the time I quit I was spending more time here than my own moronblog anyway.  This really is the best thing on the internet, the "best page in the universe" (sorry not sorry Maddox).  And thanks for not quitting like so many of us have done over the years!  (:
