I'm going to admit that I am really going to miss TonyBigCharles.com.
Sure, it had a lot of immature comments and pretty much was just a self serving website for the express purpose of making fun of one person but there were some good redeeming things about it - well at least one, for me.
The thing is, following the chronicles of TBC is kind of mind numbing. At first you think it's a big joke and then you come around and realize that it is not actually a joke. This is all real and it is the life of Tony. After you come to that realization you start digging for info from some of the older websites that he has blogged on and you see the exact same patterns emerge. Tony is a circle, his life follows the exact same pattern over and over whether you are talking about poker, VBJ or women. There is a pattern to everything he does and try as hard as he might (and no matter how much you root for the guy) that pattern doesn't appear to have a breaking point. It's a perfect circle and there is no derailing it.
The last while I've come to love TonyBigCharles.com because it was a well written summary of whatever Tony happened to be posting on his own blog. It was creative, it was funny and most of all it summed everything up in a manner that I could really get behind.
I pretty much never looked at the comments because they really weren't worth my time. It was the same thing as taking 30 14 year old kids and letting them create their own government where KKK and anal rape jokes were not only funny, they were law!
So, I read tbc.com for the articles and then I'd read Tony's actual blog for the comments and interactions.
In fact, it now appears as though TBC's blog might end up going to a thing of the past as well since he's experimenting with a forum of sorts. Who knows what the future holds.
I can tell you I'm looking forward to the meet up in June/July as it's going to be a lot of fun putting faces to the handles.
