adam bates, the best of.

Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Blogspot, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, MySpace have all taken up bits of my being, pieces of my persona, slices of my self. These are links to & quotes from myself throughout the ages, every internet joke I've ever made that I think is good enough to share again. Adam Bates: an idiot through the years, a reflection, a perspective; enjoy.

Hey there lonely heart! Did you know you can kiss your own arm & hands & stuff? Call up your Mom & tell her you just found someone special! For your health.

Man I love video games. In unrelated news being unemployed sure does give me a load of free time.

December 15, 2015 ·

This year I went from selling my blood at a biomat to selling my soul to a capitalist. Souls pay out better.

December 7, 2015 · 

I get mad at people for not being nice.

September 21, 2015 · 

Death is imaginary, as is life, haha!

September 9, 2015 · 

My advice to everyone reading this is buy $20 underwear. You may think, "Why would I need such luxury?" but after a frivolous purchase with my first paycheck, I now find myself feeling so sexy, more confident and just loving the whole wide world. Your privates deserve better; this is how to become a better person.

Are you allowed to live in Portland if you're not cute? Based on my past few experiences, I've been intimidated by everybody's body. I'm scared if I get a place there, a realtor will size me up and say those scary & final words, "NOT. CUTE. ENOUGH." Anyway, I know for a fact that you're not allowed to be over 33, so gotta go soon.

May 24, 2015 · 

Opinions are like vomit. Stop vomiting all over me.

If I had a job I could buy nice clothes for interviews so I could get a job.

November 18, 2014 · 

I want to do improv, so I could learn to be funny, so I could write good screenplays, so I could move to LA to work in TV, so I could meet my heroes, so I could find out they're human and mean and feel better about myself. I want to do improv to feel better about myself.

October 16, 2014 · 

I just submitted as part of a job application that I can carry 75 pounds at least 100 feet, which would be the easiest thing in the world to disprove. Take a look at me, Adam the stick insect. My limbs are twigs.

September 7, 2014 · 

I gave a Portland-bound man $12 for gas and he swore he would have given me a hug if he were wearing a shirt.

August 17, 2014 · 

My mother uses Facebook more than I do.

July 24, 2014 · 

Hey old people, don't just say "I remember when you were a wee lad." I HEARD IT BEFORE. ALL THE TALL JOKES. ALL OF THEM. Be here now. Say something like, "I knew you were the kind of baby to grow up and wear v-necks." It's specific, lets me know you know me, and is humorous, not just some 50-year old having a quiet existential crisis.

July 18, 2014 · 

For those of you who only know me through my internet posts, you may think I'm just some hilarious, angsty white dude. But I'm also, like, two other things.

June 27, 2014 · 

What did the father dice say to his children he hated?


June 16, 2014 · 

We're all made of star dust. The fact that smart people already know this and aren't dancing in the streets is crazy.

June 5, 2014 · 

Congratulations! Matter can be neither created nor destroyed, and you're made of it: you're immortal, bud!

June 4, 2014 ·

March 26, 2014 · 

Did my doctor just tell me I'm acutely asthmatic or was he hitting on me?

February 3, 2014 · 

Wait, so is it too late for me to be a child prodigy?

January 27, 2014 · 

I'm going to grow a beard. If you're a pretty woman, please avoid seeing me these next couple of months.

January 25, 2014 · 

Do you guys ever wake up in the middle of the night and suddenly remember you have a website? Hahaha! Me too.

January 21, 2014 · 

It's official. I have three back hairs. I'm a man now.

Bonjour. My name is Adam and my namesake is the guy who mythologically ruined humanity for everyone.

November 30, 2013 · 

Back in 2005, I had no idea that my username for LITERALLY EVERYTHING would be the email I chose when I was ten. Now I'm forever stuck with as what I use to log into Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, Hulu, Blizzard, PSN, xBox Live and, oddly enough, even my bank account.

October 11, 2013 · 

If I were in the olden days, I wouldn't own slaves. Not necessarily for moral reasons; my family was dirt poor back then.

August 30, 2013 · 

John Jacob Jingleheimerschmitt stole my name, you guys.

August 27, 2013 ·

August 16, 2013 · 

Here's a trick to getting ladies: be a genuinely good person and stop trying to learn lady-getting tricks, ya creep!

August 15, 2013 · 

I'm working on a screenplay for a baseball movie. It's called Umpire Strikes Back.

August 4, 2013 · 

Can't spell father without fat. Also, can't spell mother without moth, so, you know, take it with a grain of salt.

June 9, 2013 · 

I love negotiating with hotel showers between the molten lava and frozen river settings. I also love sarcasm.

January 24, 2013 · 

Do any of you guys ever stop to wonder if we waste so much time documenting so we'll have a good past and worrying so we'll have a good future that we miss the fleeting beauty of the present? Yeah. Me neither; usually too busy documenting or worrying.

January 6, 2013 · 

I swear, the past two days I've been knee-deep in music, and neck-deep in knee.

(2016 add to premise: imagine if you stayed in regular contact with everyone on your phone.)

September 12, 2012 · 

So I finally decided to bite and get a free Xbox from one of those flashvertisements on many a crappy website. While taking a survey and after being redirected at least three times, (each website sketchier than the last) I was told to do the same thing on twenty more websites. Long story short: I didn't get an Xbox and I 'safely removed hardware'. My computer tower is now made of wood and powered by gerbils.

Also, the only cookies I get are from my mom.

I’m a sucker for “oh, we only spent 5 million dollars on this” indie films.

If I had a nickel for every time I prepped an apology for being late and the other person was later, I’d have a big useless pile of change.

Dolly is a good name for a llama.

In my old age I’m going to have stress lines in my forehead for being too expressive with my eyebrows.

Wait, men use Pinterest? Men can use Pinterest?

I may be uninformed about current politics, but I am brave enough to have an opinion.

Why beat yourself up when you can beat up your friends?
