I'm A Creampuff: Liakos Takes A Hiatus

| | Comments (26)

Hey, kids. Starting this little website with Rob has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Honestly. It has opened up all kinds of opportunities for me, both personally and professionally, that I never thought I'd have. I count our loyal and ever growing base of readers and collaborators as one of my greatest achievements. I was always a writer but thanks to Walkoff Walk, I can actually tell people that it's what I do.

However, it's a time consuming and draining enterprise. You wouldn't know it by looking at some of the stuff I turn in, but it's true. At the moment, I've reached a point where other parts of my life need the attention that I've devoted to WoW, so I'm taking a bit of a break.

We're gonna call it a hiatus because I'm definitely not quitting. I'll still pop up in the comments and I'll be at The Heist. Most importantly, at some point I'll probably just come back. And before you ask, this wasn't something that I came up with in an altered state at Bonnaroo. It's been building for a little while.

Telling you how much work the site takes must make me look like a real bum for putting it all on Rob. But I am absolutely sure the site will stay solid and even thrive without me around for a little while. Not a shred of doubt. I mean, you'll all still be reading, right? Okay, good.

So stay with me on the ol' Twitter, and I'll see you all again a little ways down the road. Same WoW channel.

Stay gold, Cat Shirt.

Kris, good luck with your new dinner. You're opening a dinner, right? From what I understand all Greeks own dinners.

Seriously, good luck. WoW won't be same without you and your cat shirts.

THAT CARD SHOULD SAY TRAITOR

just kidding. Good luck, and the first high life is on me in Philly

What's up Creampuff - Guys that got busy.

What will CHIPPER do? You can't have FRUITCAKE without CATSHIRT.

Good luck. Come back soon.

Also, what about the Podcats (meow)?

Nah, we totally understand. You have Sensitive Fingers Syndrome and all this typing takes away from the time you must soak your hands in Palmolive.

Look how cute you used to be!

What happened?

Daddy's leaving?! *sob*

Good luck, Kris. May the Treadmill'd Shrimp bless you and keep you well 'til your return.

I hope the guy that lit the candle for Nate McLouth does the same for Kris.

Really?! You have better things to do?! Horseshit.

@UU - Oh, I can do that. I've got my bass nearby.

*aimlessly strums* jagoff...jagoff...jagoff...

@Ed, quick post it on youtube.

Question: With Kris on hiatus who is Clooney?

@UU what happens when you subtract zero from something? Clooney stays Clooney son.

@UU, I'd totally post it if I had a youtube account... or a camera...

and it seems to me
you blogged your life
like a cat shirt in the wind

never knowing
where to walk to
when the shrimp ran in

Nice mullet, kid.

And thanks everyone.

this wasn't something that I came up with in an altered state at Bonnaroo.

Yeah. That was the herp. Damn liquid acid.

GOOD NOW THAT YOU ARE FREE YOU
CAN FEEL THE NEED TO COM HELPYOU OLD FREND TODD

PULL THIS GIANT STUMP OUT OF HIS FRONT YARD IT'S MAKING THE WHOLE PLACE LOOK SHITT

BEST, TODD

-TODD JONES

I will wear my catshirt today in light of this news. Good luck/job.

If you are taking a break, can I have Beckett and Halladay?

Don't leave for too long. We all like you.

AW HELL NAW I MEAN OF ALL THE LAME BRAIN IDEAS THAT IVE EVER READ THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE TIP OF THE SILO. CATSHIRT REMEMBER WHEN YOU INTERVIEWED OL'CHIP AND I COULD SEE IT IN YOUR EYES THAT YOUR EYES WERENT ON THE PRIZE AND I TOLD YOU TO STAY TRUE BLUE AND BE THE MAN THAT EVERYBODY THINKS YOU WANT TO BE? AND YOU TOLD ME THAT YOU WERE IN IT TO WIN IT AND THAT YOU WERE GONNA BLOW THROUGH THIS WEBSITE LIKE A TWISTER THROUGH A JUNKYARD WELL NOW THAT IS ALL GONE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TURNED IN YOUR PLAYERS CLUB MEMBERSHIP TO THE PLAYERS CLUB.

I ALWAYS JOSHED ON YOU ABOUT HOW YOU NEEDED TO LEARN ABOUT HOW TO BE A COOL DUDE BUT I NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD BAIL ON ME LIKE DIME STORE FISHIN LINE. BUT I GUESS EVERY CAT SHOWS HIS TAIL AND SOMETIMES THE TAIL LOOKS LIKE A PIGS EAR OR SO THEY SAY.

IN THE END I GUESS WE SHOULD ALL SIT BACK AND BE THANKFUL THAT FRUITBAT IS STILL AROUND BUT COME ON THATS LIKE BEING THANKFUL THAT THE FOX DIDNT EAT ALL THE HENS I MEAN WERE STILL GONNA LOSE SOME EGGS NO MATTER HOW YOU SLICE THE BEEF. ANYWAY THANKS FOR WHATEVER IT IS YOU THINK YOU DID FOR THIS WEBPAGE AND IF YOU EVER NEED SOME HELP IN THE GRAND OLD GAME OF LIFE YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME.

Legal: not actually Chipper Jones. May contain colloquialisms.

Hey Kris, remember when you were wasted, thought that big group of people on the subway were speaking Creole when it was just Spanish, then hopped out at some random stop in Brooklyn even though your phone died and I had said you could crash at my place?

That was fun.

NOTE: to temporarily replace Kris, we're hiring Bobby Valentine as interim WoW editor in charge of posting retarded baseball videos.

This is an outrage. Just now, when the national media is finished reporting on Rinku and Dinesh, we need Kris Liakos most!

I kid. Good luck. But if Jesse Spector asks me to replace you in his player pick pool, I'm totally doing it.

So... do I have to make a shrine for Lloyd the Barber now instead?
