I’m pwnt. Sorta. I’ve been quite busy at work so I haven’t really had a lot of extra time to focus on my personal blog. Watch out, cause I’ve dedicated some time this weekend to catch up on it.
In my daily grind, I work very closely with current events, such as celebrity news and other major news — but not in publishing or editing (thank god!), but rather the community management aspect of it. For example, cleaning up the distasteful commentary from visitors, and helping make for a positive user experience. At times, I find it necessary to vent simply because of the fact I get wrapped up in the drama, and I also maintain equality in my moderation so, y’know. That said, here is my response to various news topics:
- Paris Hilton goes to jail — gets out — and goes back again. It needs not to be said that she is no better than everyone else in society, quite possibly worse. Her life is a party and it’s time she exhibits some responsibility for her crimes. I’m not sure if she is mentally capable of understanding her actions, I mean she has the same exact facial expression (sans, bawling), as if she was deserving to not be imprisoned. I’m so terribly sorry she has to go back to her detention center — be grateful it isn’t an overcrowded Maricopa Co. (The worst prison system in Arizona) prison. Seriously though, I hope she takes this moment to analyze her life and see if the party is over and to pursue a more mature role in life. My solution: Have her parents cut her off from money, cars, real estate and make PR about their disdain of their irresponsible daughter.
- ‘Jack’ Charged with MO Teen’s Death. No, she wasn’t abducted because of her short-shorts or physique. No, it’s not the liberals’ fault. No, it’s not Bush’s fault. No, it’s not MySpace’s fault. It was done by an individual who has yet to release the motive in the murder — so let’s just wait until more details unfold before we jump to conclusions.
- School Denies Diplomas Because of Cheers. You’ve got to be kidding me. This teaches our children that red tape and bureaucracy will ultimately determine their path in life. I don’t care if some document tells me that I can’t celebrate my graduation until you say so. In my experience, cheers, screaming, air horns and other forms of outdoor-expression is common while someone is speaking. While it is disrespectful, it does not warrant denying someone their diploma. I hope these people don’t make it to my Jury…
That’s all the news I’ll dish on for now.
I also have been
playing researching Facebook and it’s many qualities (and limitations) as a social network. I was thinking of making a “Facebook Vs. MySpace” chart, but in all honesty, you can’t compare social networks this way because of the varying dynamics that can’t be explained in a spreadsheet. Sure, I can put down the numbers like monetization, users, and growth but who really cares about that? You can check out my Facebook profile, additionally, you can visit my updated MySpace profile, if you’re interested.
Earlier this week, I went to the Fall Out Boy concert. It was fun and I was happily delighted to be blasted with watts and watts of bass from Paul Wall, too. I admit, that it was was odd to have Paul Wall at an Emo concert, but it looked like everyone had a good time. I waited in the pouring rain to get in and I snapped 240+ pictures like an overzealous photographer. All in all Sarah and I had fun. She blogged about it, without me suggesting it. Yay!
Just to test if anyone of my family actually reads my blog, I’d like to confess that I’ve smoked cigarettes even though I know it is completely antithetical for me to do so. Personally, I enjoy Djarium Blacks and despise American cig’s. I know they are a waste of money, bad for you, and will kill you. Sometimes, we all need a little poison to end off a long day. Snarkily, there you have it. I’m not lying, though I do feel eerily guilty. :: Innocent grin ::
On a related thought — I haven’t gotten piss-ass Irish (yes, I know I’m Italian) drunk in a long time. Damn, I crave some Irish Car-Bombs, Jaeger-Bomb, and Vodka. You know you are a real drunk when you start planning your future vacation around which bars you will be going to. Haha, I kid. 😉
Thanks for making it this far in this entry. Will you be kind enough to share your thoughts in the comments below?
