First off, thanks to my friends, family, and all you cool geeks that made it out to SDCC 2013. You all deserve a round of applause.
Go ahead, I’ll wait.
I was wondering whether you’d be interested in selling advertising space on Ss-Burnout.com? The advertisement would be unobtrusive and we can pay you an annual upfront payment for the advertising space.
Uh-huh. Unobtrusive ads? Annual upfront payment? Riiiiight.
We can also provide guest blog posts from industry experts in many cases.
I’m allergic to buzzwords. There’s a few here already.
I am from Media Discovery, a new media agency headquartered in the UK. We plan out and acquire advertising space on major websites and portals, as well as smaller niche sites. I personally deal with our smaller publishers, increasing brand awareness and share of voice for the major brands that our group works with.
Crikey. More buzzwords. Major brands? Like who?
We’d love to work with your site. If you have any questions or would like further information, please do not hesitate to email me directly.
If you ask me, this whole thing sounds hokey and weird. Any of our readers have any experience with this dude, or this company?
Edit 4/4/13 – It seems that I’m not the only one that’s been contacted by this company. For those of you that found this page via google, I highly recommend looking at the comments below. They’ve posted some good stuff.
Edit 9/2/13 – Wow. You guys are still at it? Well, for those of you that are new to this saga, scroll through the comments. Now it’s a debate of keeping your blog’s integrity over selling out.
In this run of Strawberry Scented Burnout, Jay Bautizo is an ex-SEAL leading a group of Spec-OPS operators from around the world in a mission to protect the geek world from those that would fuck it up. Oh, and bad people. Because bad people suck.
Jay Bautizo - Jay is the leader of Team Strawberry, the international spec-OPS squad dedicated to protecting the geek universe and fucking up bad guys. He’s a hardcore otaku and an ex-Navy SEAL. When people give otaku a hard time, he’s usually the first to speak up against it. He can’t keep his powerlevel hidden, it’s over 9000.
Justin Amador - Justin is a suave ladies man, or he’d like to think so. An ex-Delta Force sniper, he spent some time with the FBI HRT doing hostage rescues and investigations. He knows how to get the job done. Justin likes to keep his geek powerlevel hidden, because he thinks it would “kill his image”. Whatever that means.
Sandra Kumagawa - Sandra is a half-British/Japanese agent from the British SIS. Her work ethic is impeccable, and she serves as Team Strawberry’s technology and intelligence officer. She hails from Manchester City, and is a huge soccer fan. She’s clear, concise, and to the point, but she’s still kind of shy around guys. However, get a couple pints in her, and another “chavvy” side comes out. Don’t speak ill of Manchester United when she’s within earshot.
Lee Mina (Western Reckoning: Mina Lee) – Mina was Jay’s taekwondo student. After going back to Korea, she joined the ROK Army’s 707th “White Tiger” spec ops squad. She also received a 4th degree black belt in Taekwondo, outranking her former instructor. Mina serves as the squad’s explosives expert and is very energetic, brash, impulsive, and loud. She’s got her eyes set on a certain guy, and she won’t stop until she’s got her claws dug into him.
Want to see how this will all turn out? Chapter 1 is being worked on as we speak! Stay tuned!
There comes a time for growth, there comes a time for change, and there comes a time to completely smack the world over the head with something no one saw coming. You guys have been the loyal faithful and the dedicated followers. It’s high time that WE (Team Mixed Nuts) return the love and provide you guys with an outlet like none other. Tomorrow- the first issue of our side project- Strawberry Scented burnout: Tae Kwon Do, will be featured in the brand new issue of the Korea Daily! these are exciting times for the team. Be sure to pick up your copy! Consider yourself well read. Be excited my brethren.

I just woke up from a scrumptious nap and I remembered that some of you readers have been asking for some more stuff that’s “Strawberry Scented Burnout” related. My bad. Here’s a piece from our very own Baltimore Beast, JINXHAND.
So WordPress is acting really funny right now. Not quite sure what’s going on, but here’s some of the photo’s from our first meetup at Tea N More. Serious.
Jenn’s probably gonna kill me for posting this. Oh well. I had a good run.
When “Strawberry Scented Burnout” had its second run, I contacted a local artist who just happened to be Ferris’ friends from college. She’s also one of the bloggers for rhythmemotion.net. Her name’s Mylene, and she’s one of the dopest artists I’ve ever met.
Originally, I planned on getting some t-shirts printed with her designs, but the fashion division of our crew said that it was too…”convention-y” and “hypebeast”. Either way, they’re still cute pictures.
Sooo….like what you see?
The artists wanted to get their stuff warmed up, so I told ‘em to draw Jenny in 15 minutes. Here’s how it turned out.
