The Impulsive Buy Turns Six!!!

Today is The Impulsive Buy’s sixth birthday.

I thought about shutting down TIB forever today because ending it on 8/9/10 at 11:12 am seemed pretty cool. But it shall live on since I just spent a few hundred dollars to renew TIB’s hosting fees for another two years. It shall also live on because even though I’ve written over 700 reviews, I still enjoy eating stuff I shouldn’t and then writing about it.

Each review I’ve created is like one of my illegitimate children. The companies provide the products and I fertilize it with my creativitity and ability to put words together. Soon after that happens, a new review is brought out into the world. Just like the illegitimate children of NBA players, the reviews I’ve written are all a little different, but you can tell who the father is. Yes, I’ve knocked up my fair share of companies over the years, and I’ll keep doing it as long as they’re willing to put out…products.

Or until I die from their products.

Thankfully, over the past few years it hasn’t been just me knocking up companies and spawning illegitimate reviews. TIB has had a number of wonderful reviewers contributing their thoughts on products that I either couldn’t get my hands on or was too scared to try. So I’d like to thank former and current reviewers Ace, Reprobate, Kayla, Stacey and Kelley for helping TIB become what it is today.

Finally, I would like to thank all of you — the readers of this quasi-product review blog.

Without you folks, TIB wouldn’t be where it’s at today, which I’m sure is somewhere towards the bottom of the Top 1,000,000 websites on the internet list. We’re way below YouTube and any porn website, but I’m pretty sure we’re slightly ahead of a Tumblr page that shows nothing but pictures of turtle asses. I truly appreciate you taking the time to stop by this small parcel of the World Wide Web to read product reviews that contain either profanity, fart jokes, slightly obscure geeky references, sexual innuendo, celebrity drug use/alcoholism/promiscuity references or a Brach’s pick-a-mix of any of the things I just listed.

Once again, thank you for reading The Impulsive Buy

  1. *sniffle* It feels like you turned 5 just the other day. Time sure flies when you’re eating junk food! <3

  2. Congrats TIB! I first discovered you years ago when looking for reviews on the Bodygroom man-groomer. I was hooked after reading that absolutely hilarious review (I also went out and bought one). Keep up the awesomeness!

  3. Happy Birthday, TIB/Marvo. Here’s to six more years of inappropriate comparisons between food and prostitutes, or celebrities…or, celebrity prostitutes…or prostitute celebrities. Now, look what you did, I have to run out for a Big Mac and a hooker. Later! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Happy 6th birthday to the best quasi-review blog on the internets. You have given me an undefined* amount of entertainment of the years.

    One love.

    * PPPPPPPPPeepeepeeepeepeeS – I define it as a whole heck of a lot.

  5. When you’re walkin’ down the isle
    and you get that sneaky smile
    you’re having an impulsive buy
    when you see a new flavor of doritos
    and another one of cheetos
    you’re having an impulsive buy
    when instead of mozzarella you buy a mini umbrella
    you’ve just had an impulsive buy
    and when you’re right at the cashier
    and can’t resist buying beeeeer
    you’re haviiing and impulsive buyyyyy!

  6. Six years, that’s amazing. I’m proud to be a part of the team, and fully expect to die one day from one of the products I review. That’s right, I read the fine print, and I STILL signed the contract!

    Anyways, a very happy birthday to The Impulsive Buy.

  7. Wow!! Six years! AWESOME Love this site. Got me through my pregnancy. Craved everything you reviewed. Of course, the cravings happened AFTER I read the review. ๐Ÿ™‚ My daughter is happy and healthy, though she does have a hankering for candy… Here’s to another six years!

  8. Awesome!

    Can’t live with TIB. Whenever I see a new product out I immediately check TIB and it’s always there!

    Thanks a lot!

  9. 6 is such a great age – you start school (kindergarten doesn’t count – anyone can sit in a circle, take a nap and eat paste – I’m talking first grade, baby!). You hang out with all those second graders your mama warned you about. You learn how to chug…mainly chocolate milk, but it’s only a matter of time to beer and hard liquor. Anyhoo, happy birthday TIB!

  10. Dear Sexy Knickers,

    Congratulations on keeping the site going for 6 years. Thanks also for spending a couple hundred dollars to make sure it stays online a few more. It’s very generous and selfless of you to spend your time, money, and mental energy eating food that might clog your arteries, induce a diabetic coma, cause a caffeine crash, an in general abuse your body and mind in gross and unnatural ways all for the benefit of us, the unknown masses. You’re a saint. Though, I suspect you might be using your dear readers and this site as a smoke screen, an excuse to get occasional free food swag and eat all sorts of fatty sugarey yummy goodness you couldn’t justify eating on your own. So really it’s not altruistic so much as self serving. You selfish bastard.

    Miss Hot Pants

    P.S. – If I win, could you please tell me how to unlock my hidden potential in bed cause I think that would be swell. Thanks.

  11. Congratulations Marvo (and other writers of TIB, of course!), The Impulsive Buy is still going strong, six years in, and although to know that I’ve been reading this for 6 years now makes me kinda wish I had done something more productive with my time, I still look forward to many more awesome reviews.

    Reading TIB has introduced me to multitudes of products (Popchips for example, they’re delicious!) over the years, and whenever I see a tweet saying there’s a new review, I can’t wait to read it.

    Keep up the fantastic work,
    NobleArc, The Lazy Canadian

    P.S. Is it odd that I have TIB’s birthday as a calendar event on my iPhone? >.>

    P.P.S. I just wanted to overuse PS/PPS/PPPS/PPPPS like my favourite review blog writer. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Happy birthday TIB, even though I’ve only been reading for 3 years and hardly comment, unless there’s a chance on free goodies ๐Ÿ˜›

    May you try many more products, and live to review them on this site ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I may be a little late, but Happy Birthday! I’ve been following this blog for about two years and it’s helped me step outside my comfort zone and try new foods. Of course, none of that food is good for me, but whatever. I’ve only got one life, right? Might as well eat all the heart-attack inducing junk I want!
