Search Diving on “Live” for Fun, Amusement and Mild Pleasure
What’s the least likely place you would go to find something? Your old girlfriend’s apartment? A landfill? Utah? Actually, it’s not any of those. The least likely place you would go is obviously page 87 of Live Search. Which of course is why you should go there.
So let’s get right to it. I will choose a random keyword phrase, and by random, I mean the first thing that pops into my head. pink earmuffs. Oh wow, that’s embarrassing, but search I must.
Huh, I found a website called Feministing. So what’s this feministing all about?
Young women are rarely given the opportunity to speak on their own behalf on issues that affect their lives and futures. Feministing provides a platform for us to comment, analyze and influence.
Okay, what’s next? Thinking, thinking, thinking… How about purple dinosaur poop! This should be good.
First off, I can’t believe there are 87+ search results for purple dinosaur poop, but I digress and must reveal my findings. I found Library Thing Beta. what is Library Thing you ask? Well, let me tell you:
LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere — even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth.
Apparently, Live found this without the use of poop, because there was no poop to be found on this page.
One more and then we’ll call it an entry. I’m going to think back to a distant memory from when I was a kid. Lizard head in ice cream. Don’t ask…
An interesting result — Gumby and Pokey in the 80s Cartoons. I guess that result makes about enough sense to me as it did having a lizard head my ice cream when I was in fifth grade. The page is a giant collection of Gumby stories, I think.
Decades after the original shorts were created, Art Clokey started this updated take on Gumby. Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo get a farm and their own band. Gumby gets a little sister and a grandmother. More and more of the important characters actually look like humans. The Blockheads appear more frequently, giving them official recurring villain status. They don’t quite have the outrageously bizzarre appeal of the earlier cartoons, but it’s still Gumby at heart. Let’s watch.
And by “Let’s watch,” the author must mean let’s read hundreds of short story plots of Gumby. If you’re brave enough to read through all of them, your prize is the link at the bottom of the page to buy Gumby swag.
