Don't judge me. Ok fine, judge me. I'm sitting around in my pajamas posting cat videos. AT LEAST I GOT OUT OF BED, DAMMIT.
Little dark this time! Welcome to my gloomy kitchen. Also I realize that I yapped for over three minutes again. SUE ME. Actually, don't. I won't have the money to pay you and that crackerjack lawyer of yours if I lose.
Also, I know that in the video I said that I'd add links to who else was talking about my previous Facebook question, but I did a crappy job of bookmarking them and sort of lost interest after my tenth glass of wine. Kidding! Sort of. Want to help?
So I was about to sit down yesterday and write a long diatribe about some of my lingering social networking questions, but then I thought, oh what the hell- I'd rather just say it out loud. I know I rambled a little too long (what can I say? I'm a yapper). I'll shoot for no more than 90 seconds next time, and maybe use Seesmic so you guys can comment with video? Thanks in advance for your participation! Oh, and I already know that my nose looks like it's made of silly putty, but I also have an excellent sense of smell, so there.
Just wanted to share a really fun episode of popSiren I did recently from majestic Treasure Island in San Francisco. The popSiren team rarely gets outside of the studio on a regular basis, but after the fun we had this time around, we're considering a lot more of it. I think the fresh air does a body good. What do YOU think? I want your feedback!
You know your brain is made of Jarlsberg when your mom calls you up to tell you how much she likes your new show, popSiren, and you realize that you were so busy that you neglected to mention anything about it, to anyone, ever. Sorry Mom.
So I'm mentioning it now! I'd love for you to watch my new show, popSiren! New episodes come out every Thursday at 3 pm Eastern, 12 pm Pacific. If you like what you see, you can subscribe here (click the subscription options tab for a bunch of choices) and automatically receive the show each week.
Show ideas, suggestions, criticisms, praise, and light to moderate hate mail should go to firstname.lastname@example.org. Just kidding about the hate mail. Don't need no hateration or holleration
in this dancery. But feedback is most appreciated.
It's good to be back! Check us out:
I also spit out a mouthful of Kombucha watching this just now. Thumbs up.
Bizarrely, I just noticed they're featured in a Google ad on this page. Am I behind or something? I was hoping I'd discovered them.
You go ahead and fight me on this one if you like, but George Michael's "Freedom '90" is one of the Best Songs Ever Made. The interesting thing is that he released it before most of his fans knew he was gay (yes, I know he was 1/2 of Wham!, but come on, I was eight), and it still took me about a decade to realize the song was his coming-out-of-the-closet anthem.
I can't believe this video is 18 YEARS OLD.
Has anyone else noticed a surge in usage of The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" in film soundtracks over the last few years? Maybe it's just a case of standard probability. I've been stuck inside with The Cruel, Cruel Cold for three days now, and I've watched roughly 1,700 On Demand movies. I guess I was bound to hear it a few times.
Where I've come across it, in case you're wondering:
I should add that in my mucus-laden opinion, "Gimme Shelter" is the best Rolling Stones song ever recorded, so I'm not complaining. Just bored out of my skull and noticing the little things.
Because it goes nicely with my currently feverish state, here's "Gimme Shelter" dubbed over the ending scene of "Taxi Driver". Though Martin Scorcese obviously loves the song and has used it in several of his movies, it wasn't originally featured in this one. Works nicely though, doesn't it? Oh, and don't watch if you're under 17. And if you do, it's only ketchup.
