All I Can Say.

How can our blog exist in a post-Avatar world? i.e. one in which technology has destroyed art, and everything we joke about on this blog comes true? My only reaction is to post this, as a willful statement of being behind-the-times.

The More Fucked-Up They Are, The More Like You They Are, The More You're Gonna Get Along With Them

Party in the U.S.A.

I wouldn't actually call this bunch an "angry mob," but I really like how he handles all this.

We should find an intelligent conservative and let him or her join our blog.

Deez Nutz

Here are the works of fiction that I submitted for my grad school applications. I figured it was weird that not many people have seen much of the stuff I've written in the past two years or so, as I'm like "banking" on it to get me into an MFA program. I haven't posted anything online in a while because I feel like it would be kind of a drag to be posting prose on Facebook all the time and thereby sort of psychically pressuring people to read them and tell me how great they thought it all was. At the same time I would seem kind of insane if I went around talking about how I'm trying to go to school for "Creative Writing" without publicly evidencing that I have any business doing so. And besides, now that I've sent all this stuff in already, I don't need anyone to read it for me or anything. I hope you enjoy it, though.

On the keeping "real" of "shit"

I just read an email correspondence between David Eggers and the Harvard Advocate from back in 2000. It's a little long but goood. Maybe you've already seen it, if not check it out when you have a little time.

Crumar Mainman

donald petersen

" Apparently, one of the keyboards being used here is a model known as the Crumar Mainman, a synth of such rarity that enthusiasts quite literally ejaculate at the thought of being near one. Sticky excretions aside, this is top stuff, chilled and rather abstract yet still dance music through and through.
i guess i will never see a crumar mainman. "

(Excerpt found on some super geeked out super exclusive messageboard seemingly dedicated to the orgasmic tendencies of free form jazz and of course the internet. Background music provided by Crunchholdoh©.)

AP Wacky News: Nothing Is Sacred (Is this really what Brian Eno wants?)

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A Maryland groom has created an viral story storm after he interrupted his wedding last month to update his Facebook and Twitter accounts from the altar.

Dana Hanna, who works for a pet website, also posted a short video of the ceremony on the Internet. It showed him reaching into his pocket for his phone as the minister was about to pronounce the couple husband and wife.

The video has had more than 350,000 views.

"Oh, Dana is updating his relationship status on Facebook," the minister said as the audience at the wedding laughed.

After Hanna finished twittering he continued the ceremony.

"As I was saying, I now pronounce you husband and wife. It's now official on Facebook. It's official in my book. Dana you may kiss your bride."

Hanna, who lists his profession on the networking site LinkedIn as chief architect at Next Day Pets, described his reaction to the ceremony on his YouTube account the day after the ceremony.

"I surprised not only my guests, but also Tracy (his wife) by pulling out my phone and posting on Facebook and Twitter from the altar during out wedding," he said.

Though users have sent marriage proposals over the micro-blogging site Twitter, interrupting a wedding ceremony to update social networking site Facebook and send out a Tweet on Twitter about it appears to be a first.

"I had her phone ready in my pocket, so when she asked for it I could hand it to her. No one knew about this except the minister and myself." he said on YouTube.

The Twitter post, which has garnered Hanna instant online fame, is still up on his account.

"Standing at the altar with @TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride. #weddingday 1:48 PM Nov 21st from Twittelator."

Yesterday, apparently overwhelmed by media attention, Hanna posted a new comment on his Twitter account.

"To all the criticizers of my video out there questioning my sanity: You don't get it. I was having fun at MY wedding! Loosen up, have fun!"

His new bride, apparently also surprised at the viral storm her husband launched, also posted on her Twitter account.

"Can't sleep, very anxious about this new fame. What will become of it?" she asked.
