I just saw this video on TV as a Mountain Dew Commercial. I feel like YouTube has been infiltrated. Run, save yourself.

HELP STALLONE

We just watched a commercial for Sylvester Stallone's "Rocky Balboa" here in my room (It's the Video Game Awards and apparently we are watching them here. I know, crazy. But Erin Kiskis worked at X Fire over the summer, and I worked at G4, so pretty much we're huge nerds and we are all about video games?). I THINK SYLVESTER STALLONE NEEDS TO STOP MAKING MOVIES.

I LOOKED AT IMDB AND HE IS SLATED FOR A "RAMBO 4".

I have nothing against Stallone. But I think we need to stay away from the sequels. HE IS 60, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. SIXTY. I don't think sixty is OLD, but it's old for Rambo.

COME TO MY WINDOW!

So I guess now I am going to reflect on blogs in general. I think blogging is somewhat amazing. For me, it is like keeping a journal. Only it easier than an actual journal because
1) your sister can't break into it (private entries, at least), and
2) it's an amazing archive of your life.

Unfortunately I pretty much stopped blogging last year. When I look back at old blogs from high school I feel dumb. I made some really retarded entries. I like to think that I've "matured" since high school, but the sad truth is I'll probably look back on this year's (few) entries and think I was just as retarded, if not more.

GO MARIO GO!!!

blog, mario, blog like you've never blogged before.

A YOUTUBE ADVENTURE with lots of fun links

I would like to make a statement about how much I love YouTube.

David sent me a link to some horrible waterpolo music video which made me want to barf. It was hardcore serbian rab or something, but the fact that David thinks it's cool is what's really barf-worthy. I like waterpolo, but I make it a personal point to not let David think he is cool.

If you are interested in seeing some almost-naked men clawing at eachother while 3 other white guys spit lyrics into the camera, be my guest.

Anyhow, pissed off that David might think he was cool; maybe even cooler than me, I searched YouTube in hopes to find some cool music video where horses jumped big things or something. I had no luck finding such video (minus 1 for YouTube), even though I found a TON of awful horse music videos like this one. So i sent that to David.

FOX NEWS ON FACEBOOK

Uh.

Did anyone know that this is a link on facebook?

"Check out the latest news, hot video and celebrity gossip in the FOX News Group!"

...yeah. There's a FOX News Group. I learned this when I clicked on "What's next?" on my homepage after playing a really nifty procrastinating game. This isn't a student-created group. It is definately a souped-up facebook page that FOX News creates and maintains, like a webpage.

While it's pretty obvious that FOX is paying Facebook for this slot, I'm a little...turned off by it, I suppose. Can anyone advertise on Facebook? And if any news group is going to create a group, WHY FOX?! I'm sorry but I forget who is working on social networking for her thesis--have you come across this? If you haven't, you should definitely check it out.

WHERE ARE THE CHEETOS?!

Did I really never post THIS when we were talking about video games??! I couldn't have missed such an opportunity to share joy. I don't really remember anything anymore.

Take a break and watch it. The sound is off and it drives me nuts, but it's pretty much the best thing since He-Man said HEY! WHAT'S GOIN ON!

AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH

When I talked about my thesis in class (independent film distribution, david lynch etc), I believe somebody mentioned something about "An Inconvenient Truth" getting dropped by a certain production/dist company (Disney?). I can't find anything about this. I'd really love a link to an article, or at least a little more information to help aid my search?

Thanks a lot.

Sincerely

HOW DO I QUOTE WIKIPEDIA

Alright, I'm going to ask this again:

HOW DO I QUOTE WIKIPEDIA?

It's a legit source. I want to quote it.

One time I thought I was smart and then I decided that no, I was obviously dumb for thinking that.

Question:
How do I quote Wikipedia in my paper? Can I do that? Can I just say "according to wikipedia" blah or should I include some sort of footnote and treat it like a real encyclopedia article?

In other news I envy my rabbit, who has no idea how to write or even speak english but gets along just fine without having to deal with the travesties of academia. Right now he is napping with his head on a newspaper article, which he has no idea how to read and probably doesn't even understand or interpret as "newspaper"; more likely he is more invested in its chewing qualities. Most of my library books smell bad, but at this point I'd rather eat them than read them. So...in the vein of a David Lynch movie or Kafka narrative, I'd like to turn into a rabbit.
