SOB

Weird and a bit freaky, but awesome. I have to share what landed in my inbox today.

In response to the Local Super Hero posting below, I received an anonymous email this afternoon which simply contained the image shown below with the following text:

"A hero walks among us - summerofbrad.wordpress.com."

I'm not completely sure what to make of this or who is responsible—a clearly fictitious gmail account was used to transmit what you see here (sort of reminded me of Scorpio in Dirty Harry, only without the bad intent).

Without doubt, the Summer of Brad moniker has taken a life of its own. Where will this take us? I'll be following closely, bemused and entertained.

  1. Anonymous email?

    In any case, I love that SOB.

  2. Yes - anonymous. That's what's weird about the whole thing.

  3. I've placed my guess in a sealed envelope.

  4. Awesome ... how can ya not love that SOB! I'm guessing that Jens himself found out about SOB and just had to make sure it/he was properly recognized. What a selfless guy!

    That is my response.

    And it's actually not porn. Rare celebrity photos. I hope the summerman enjoys the first pic on that page.

  6. This is a little creepy. I always thought having a secret admirer would be kind of cool, but now I'm not so sure...

  7. I've been thinking about this. It has got to be Chris. He's obviously got the time, the poster & creative skills, loves to hype stuff. He keeps pointing the finger at me, but that alone makes me suspicious. Pure genius really.

  8. The "style" is very very familiar to me and I also have a guess. That font "twentyeleven" in particular gives me deja vu -- but I haven't fully made the connection yet to be 100% certain. Chris would have been on the short-list but I don't think it's Chris. I would peg him as a co-conspirator though.

  9. Yes, Chris would have to be high on the list of suspects. Don't be fooled by his mild-mannered and bespectacled exterior. He's a bad boy at heart.

  10. Oh I've never been fooled KK. ;-) I dont think he was the artist thou. If I'm wrong about that I'll happily agree to buy you all a round. Maybe he commissioned the artist however. ?? He does love the man more than anyone else.

  12. @ Kim - Yes, evidently "he does love the man more than anyone else". This holds true even if he isn't the one who commissioned the SOB site.

    @ Thomas - I saw that one. I love her more than anyone else.
