You Must Be This Creative To Go On This Ride

April 21, 2012


Well, one thing is clear – there are a lot of theme parks options out there that people aren’t taking advantage of.  People without the imagination and vision of The Byronic Fans.

(Side note:  Whadya think… “Byronic Fans”… catchy?  Stupid?  Demeaning?  I’m tired of writing “Readers of The Byronic Man,”  and this is shorter.  Also by giving readers a collective name, I’m one step closer to my dream of creating a cult of me.)

These rooftop rides in Las Vegas could safely be called "Place I Would Never Go In A Bajillion Years Land".

Anyway, there were some great ideas for theme parks, as per last Sunday’s Weekly Question of the Week.  I highly recommend revisiting the page and looking at some of the specific rides people included or suggested.  These were not only great touches, they’ll give you a better sense of what you’re voting for.  And which one will it be?  Which one will we be building?  Which one will I be taking to investors and saying “Billions of readers support the building of this theme park”?

That’s where you come in. Take a moment to vote for the finalists, to visit this week’s winner and Blogger of the Week (below). Then rest up!  Tomorrow’s another Weekly Question of the Week, and you’re going to need your wits about you for this one!

Last week you were looking at your favorite mash-ups of classical literature, and pop-culture/supernatural.  Which one did you want to see?

You voted for “Honey, I Shrunk The Last of the Mohicans” submitted by Jules, over at Go Guilty Pleasures! Well done, Jules!  Those movie rights are as good as sold.  Until then, you’re my Blogger of the Week, with all the glory and attention that brings with it.


About The Byronic Man

Recently voted "The Best Humor Site in America That I, Personally, Write," The Byronic Man is sometimes fiction, but sometimes autobiography. And sometimes cultural criticism. Oh, and occasionally reviews. Okay, it's all those different things, but always humorous. Except on the occasions that it's not. Ah, geez. Look, it's a lot of things, okay? You might like it, is the point.

    Somehow, byronic fans reminded of death eaters.


  2. Life With The Top Down Says:

    Hahahahaha! This line just made me spit my coffee..I hope you don’t have us drinking Kool-aid. “I’m one step closer to my dream of creating a cult of me.” Now that is a goal!


  3. every record tells a story Says:

    Byronikers? Byronicals? Byronators? Byleivers?


  4. k8edid Says:

    Just remember that is not a very big leap from Byronic Fans to Byronic Fanatics or Byromaniacs….


  5. She's a Maineiac Says:

    For some reason I’m kinda partial to Byromaniacs.

    Congrats Jules! (again) Is there anything you haven’t won lately? You are taking over the world! Can I be your sidekick?


  6. 1pointperspective Says:

    Congrats Jules! I knew my entry wouldn’t win, but it was an honor just to be in the competition. I’m not going to waste my breath begging people to vote for me this week, since I had to promise Brad and Angelina I’d stop bothering them (I think their exact words were “cease and desist” whatever that means!).

    As for the name of us followers how about Byronicult, or the super hi-tech sounding “Byronix 2.1” ?


  7. becomingcliche Says:

    I want to see Elvis impersonators manning every ride.


  8. susielindau Says:

    Thanks for including Unsinkable Molly Brown Land in this weeks competition! I’ll have to get back to the presses and print up some campaign posters.

    I have secretly always wanted to join a cult. Thanks Byronic Man for making my dream come true!


  9. gojulesgo Says:

    Oh, sweet, sweet victory! I did not realize you would taste exactly like a Reese’s peanut butter cup martini. I should have known.

    I cannot wait for my sidebar debut. And I will work on names for your cult-members-to-be. They might not be short enough (the names, not the cult members). Like Byronic Maniacs. You could just be sexist and call us your Byronic Men.


  10. Soma Mukherjee Says:

    Yay to the Byronic Man’s Cult 🙂


  11. tedstrutz Says:

    Byronic Fans… hmmm… Needs to be catchier I think. Byronic Brood?

    So happy I switched my vote last week. Congrats Jules! My voting tends to be swayed by hot chicks. I’m liking Mollyland this week.


  12. tedstrutz Says:

    Oh, I just read the other comments. I guess ‘Byronic Brood’ seems a little tame compared to the flashier suggestions. While I was going for content, I now realize, for ‘a legend in his own mind’… ‘Cult’ has to be the one!


  13. Walter Says:

    Okay I’ve been remiss in reading but can Army Land include any army from any era? Right now I have a cast on one arm and a limp, all I need is a fife and bandage around my head and I’m good for the Civil War. I’ve got investors.


  14. benzeknees Says:

    I’d like to be known as a Byromaniac! It has a nice ring to it with just a touch of the bizarre!


  15. skippingstones Says:

    Congratulations, Jules – well done!

    I particularly like Byromaniacs; we can be Byromaniacs, Byromaniacs on the floor, dancing like we’ve never danced before. I’ve always wanted to be in a cult, too, but one that doesn’t sell anything or grow anything or sing anything or live together or wear funny clothes or shave their heads or expect me to share my money or follow any rules or attend meeting or acknowledge other members in public. So, yeah, other than that, I’m totally in.


  16. Elyse Says:

    I suggest BryoNics.


  17. rambling jill Says:

    Byronians unite!


  18. Michelle Gillies Says:

    I would be proud to be called a “Byromaniac”. That will probably be the coolest thing I will ever be called in my lifetime.
    Peace now and go with Bryroman.


  19. Alison Armstrong Says:

    Someone from definitely is getting at least a bit of inspiration from your blog (do you remember the film music one I pointed out?) … here’s another… World’s strangest theme parks (photo gallery)
    It isn’t a direct rip this time, but you clearly have a fan who is a journo.
