Welcome all!

Welcome to Dave Littler’s Tall Blog of Strength! An entertainment blog about entertaining things for the purposes of entertaining people!

There’s a good many reasons why you might be here, and a good many things to see now that you are. For your ease, your convenience, your entertainment and possibly even education, I have prepared for you this small menu of “greatest hits”, so as to aid you in your perusal of my many offerings from over the course of the years during which I have maintained this blog.

First, and perhaps most popularly, is my groundbreaking “The World’s Most Terrifying Penises” series, which documents the wonders and horrors of some of the most outlandish examples of reproductive excess in the animal kingdom. This includes both video-style and text-and-picture-fashion posts, both of which are maximally excellent.

Second, my body painting work; designs and painting by me (and a variety of assistants), modelling by a number of talented models and professional photographers.

Third, my Newdog15 re-writes, in which I take the tawdry straw of japanese “hentai” pornography and spin of it the purest of comedy gold.

Fourth, my currently-ongoing ridiculous comedy pulp adventure story, “The Curse of the Rhino King”, presented both as a read-and-comprehend text-format adventure and astonishing audio-rama radio-play versions for your convenience and enjoyment.

Fifth, my thoughts on religion, with a particular emphasis on my own personal atheism and well-reasoned (I should think!) opposition to the christianity which has so plagued our western world in recent millennia.

Sixth, the bizarrely-popular saga of Vince, the Parasite King; the real-life drama of my nightmarish experiences with one of the world’s most obnoxious room-mates, which serves as a sort of cautionary tale.

There are many other buried treasures in my many years of blogging, the most obviously-entertaining of which can be found among my comedy offerings.

I hope that you find my works to be both satisfying and pleasing, and that if you should wish to friend me or comment on any of it, you should do precisely that.

I get the idea, but there must be some better way to do it. You could make it a click-through so the next entry is visible without scrolling, at least?

I'll see if I can devise a way, but I must admit I'm having difficulty conceiving of one.

It seems to me that a single push of the "page down" key on your leyboard ought to be sufficient for the task, and no more onerous than a single mouse click.

*You* having trouble coming up with a creative solution to a little design problem? That's not the Dave I know!

On my laptop page-down requires holding down the Function key and pressing the down arrow, and it takes two of those to get to the actual text of the most recent entry, a move that also makes that entry's title disappear — so seeing both title and body text takes finer manipulations.

The point isn't that it's genuinely hard work to see the second entry. It's just that seeing a huge block of the same old text each time I load up your blog, forever, seems inelegant and pointless.

There must be some good way to add a highly visible and easily recognized "New here?" link to this entry, or to a page with the same content, somewhere at the top. This guy, for example, has a small collection of highly visible customized links at the very top of his Livejournal:

Oh, WELL! I could do THAT easily enough. The thing is, I know that people are almost indescribably lazy, and if I put up a "New here? Click here!" Entry up top, nobody - NOBODY - will ever, ever, ever click that link. It will be like unto a shrine dedicated to the concepts of laziness, apathy and incuriosity, undisturbed and pristine for all the ages to come.

No, if I want people to see such text, I need to put it front and centre, where they cannot help but read it.
