I think I belong in the Funny Farm!

Saturday, July 9, 2011 12:15 PM

Okay, I've now ridden UNTAMED 93 times and the coaster's been open less than a month.

According to the ride ops, I now hold the record for most rides in a season (93) and most rides in a day (60). I think they, my friends and myself are beinging to question my sanity. I almost want to get an UNTAMED tatoo, but that would be crossing the line for me.

Yet, at the same time, I can't get enough of this coaster! Im my mind, it is the best thing Canobie has done for the park in years!

Am I normal by coaster junkie standards or just plain nuts?

Help me!!!

As long as you're not an attention whore about it, I wouldn't worry about it.

You're pretty normal by most standards of any kind of fan. The FlowRider lifeguards at Kalahari knew who I was by the end of the summer in 08 because I would spend 90% of my visits there at the FlowRider. I had a nickname from the 05 maXair crew, and all the following crews through 2009 pretty much knew me and my penchant for the ride.

Like Jeff said, don't make it a big deal yourself (let the ride ops make it a big deal, they like to have fun with stuff like that), and enjoy the ride.

D'oh!

My mind has evidently already arrived back in Florida for vacation a month ahead of the rest of me.

I try not to be an attetion whore about it.

To tell the truth, I'm slightly embarresed by it.

The other guests look in shock when they ride ops tell them.

Sadly, I've throught aboyt changing my screen naqme here to "Mr. Untamed."

Slightly embarrassed enough to start two topics on the subject within a couple of hours.

I LOLed at Jeff's ironic post.

Personally, Untamed looks like crap.

I like how Jeff's signature makes it very clear that he is in charge of CoasterBuzz. No attention whoring there;)

Yep. The reason I put that in my sig is so people know that they don't have to take everything I say so seriously all of the time, because I sure don't.

I usually put a link to whatever music I am working on at the time. Right now, I don't have any music that I want to promote. I'm working on some new stuff, but it's not quite ready to be heard yet (and probably sucks anyways ;) ). The Give Kids The World fundraiser is the most important thing that I am working on right now anyways, and it's way more parallel with the subject of this site.

But enough about me. has anyone checked out this awesome coaster photo website called Coasterimage.com ? I forget where I heard about it, but it has some really good pictures.

If I were allowed to attention whore my signature any more than it is, I would. There'd be glitter and sparkles and fire and explosions and dancing girls.

It'd be the best animated GIF ever.

It was a horrible movie made with Chevy Chase in 1988. I watched it 2 times and stayed awake both times. Can I add that to my Track Record?
