Writer's Block: The Evolution of My Internet

How has the Internet evolved to meet your needs since you started using it?


The coolest thing about the internet is the way it is self-fixing. No thanks to magic, just sheer magnitude. A glitch in a program? Someone will probably patch it before you get to it. Firefox for example is open-source software that's totally ace. And the way companies keep trying to up the way we relate to each other socially - look at Google Wave! I'm pro-internet, I'm pro-connection, Hell, I'm even pro-twitter. This is all good stuff. Good, good stuff. I'm totally happy to be alive now and I don't think it makes me a geek to admit as much.

After running into some issues, Lillix are back and they put their new song "Dance Alone" up for free download on their website.

I'm not president of the Lillix fanclub, but their second album Inside the Hollow was so damn catchy, and they're giving shit away for free so why not help them with some publicity. (If relevance is brought into question, I guess I could say they're that band that did that "What I Like About You" cover that was everywhere a few years ago.)

Avril Lavigne Goes Shopping in Beverly Hills; Wears Something Other than Abbey Dawn

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Stepping out for a retail romp, Avril Lavigne was spotted shopping with a friend at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills on Saturday (July 18).
The 24-year-old Canadian singer looked a little larger in the tummy than usual, already leading to rumors of a baby on the way.

Tbh, I just wanted to hear what the ONTD fashion police thought of the look. I don't think she looks pregnant, personally. Also, her fans are totally celebrating the fact that the pink streak in her hair is gone, lol.

These are for people who like Paramore-style stuff; I don't listen to anything hardcore. These are indie bands/artists that need a lot of support, so buy it if you like it. I know Letters to Cleo don't fit that definition, but they are doing a spring tour, hence the reason I felt the need to upload their stuff.


a writing rant...

I've been so busy beta'ing and writing my original fic that I've completely forgotten about those few days I wrote fanfic myself (from 03-06, apparently). So, this morning, I wake up to some really in-depth reviews from someone who read my stories. She was totally dissecting them and I was embarrassed because I *know* they're shit, and I know I can write better than that, but I've yet to muster the will to go back and edit them or to even just delete them because, hello, I'm a nostalgic whore. I dunno.

I'm always happy for reviews, don't get me wrong, and I'm totally fine with constructive criticism, which this was. It was more like... she was looking at a picture of me in high school and giving me fashion advice, but I'm like, Hey, I don't even own those jeans anymore!

I dunno... I dunno...
