Here We Go Again - I Hate Crocs Dot Com on CBC Radio's Day 6


It is happening again.

Crocs have returned from the dead, and with them comes renewed interest in I Hate Crocs Dot Com, this ancient website.

I (Vincenzo) was recently interviewed for CBC's Radio's Day 6 about Crocs. Take a listen over here.

I thought about updating this generic Blogger template here on the old I Hate Crocs Dot Com, but ultimately decided against it. This website should exist unchanged, as it has existed for over a decade. It will stand as a monument to the internet as it used to be, before social media took over everything. Enjoy the archives of hatemail and videos of Crocs destruction.

What am I doing these days? Thanks for asking. Well, I've been writing, and performing magic. I performed on the CW's hit show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us. I also wrote a short story collection called Peril & Exploit and Other Mysterious Tales. You can read the first story in the collection for free right here. If you like magic (and even if you don't), you can come to my virtual magic show, Magic From the Twilight Lodge from anywhere in the world here.

Keep in touch on the various social platforms or my website. I'm SavourTheSea on Instagram and Twitter.

Regarding Crocs, I still dislike the look of them, though I scarcely think about them anymore. It continues to be surprising to me that Crocs are making a comeback. And as I say in the Day 6 interview, I think this is the first time Crocs are becoming fashionable. They're expensive and being worn by celebrities. It's a fascinating and unexpected swerve. 

Anyway, I hope you're well. Before you write me a hatemail, let me just preempt some of the usual stuff:

1. I hate you. I have to wear Crocs because of my food condition.

I wish you good health and happiness. I have no quarrel with you. I just don't like the way the shoe looks. My father also wears Crocs. The tagline at the top of the site is hyperbole. I don't truly wish to eliminate you.

2. I hate you. Why would you spend your time on such a stupid opinion?

I wish you good health and happiness. I started this website with Kate Leth when we were in high school because we hated Crocs and we thought it would be funny. We spent very little time on it then and I have spent fewer than ten minutes on it in the entire past decade.

3. I hate you. For some other reason.

May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you live your life with ease.

If you'd like to get in touch for any other reason, please do. I'd be glad to hear from you.
