The Unblinking Ear Podcast: Firsties!!

Last night as I was unsuccessfully battling another bout of Sunday night insomnia, I clicked over to the Onion AV Club's TV Club's review of last night's Adult Swim lineup (which was pretty awesome, by the way.) As I finished reading the article I noticed that there were zero comments.

I could have posted first! Oh glory of glories! Oh frabjous day!

Well, probably not as in the time it took me to actually, you know, read the article, I'm sure some lonely soul skipped right down to the end to get the first comment in. Still, I was weirdly tempted. Perhaps I identify with the firsties. Perhaps I too have a hole in my soul I need to fill by anonymously and needlessly irritating others.

Question: When a website starts getting firsts on their comments section does that mean the website is officially successful? Subquestion: Is success in the new millennium defined by people who have absolutely nothing to say?

I have yet to get a first on this blog. So the first person to do that will be the first first. That's like extra first.
