So, I may have to exercise a little more Facebook blocking. Someone I knew in a previous life has an association with someone else I knew in a previous life and the latter tends to say things in comments like, “It’s also National Intercourse Day!” Bleah. Look, I’m all for celebrating sexuality but given that you caused the dissolution of two marriages and at least one family with small children in your celebration of intercourse, perhaps you could show a little respect by not being so cavalier in your love of love. This kind of thing always reminds me of that scene in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof where Brick tells the incessantly annoying Sister-Woman that some people aren’t “so loud about their love.” I mean digging it and doing it well are one thing. Screaming about it in a rather crass way on a social networking site is altogether different. If you manage to find a creative, poetic way to do it, like this lady here, perhaps I’ll take you seriously. Wait…no I won’t. You blew that chance years ago. Block. I shall never speak of you again. But I suspect you may always remember me. (I stole that from Ever After.)
Anyway, I have mostly music today but there are a few things of interest…
This is fascinating. On the one hand, I get the argument that if you put something out over the internet your privacy expectation necessarily changes. However, if Twitter’s terms of service state that you own your content in perpetuity then, well, hide the bottle under the seat man. This one doesn’t have an easy answer. Puzzles are compelling. The internet is just a wealth of changing opinions.
Private boards? I’m in. I have vision board ideas I’ve been exploring but I’d rather keep it for my eyes only. So, hello Pinterest. It’s a pleasure to meet you.
An interesting piece of conversation with the Coach about Obama’s strategy in officially coming out in support of gay marriage:
Coach: So, just to recap
There was an overwhelming vote in a swing state that barely went for Obama last time
The next day, Obama comes out on the losing side of that issue
Which is a reversal of an earlier claim
And removes a line of attack he was using against his opponent
But yeah…this guy knows how to campaign
He’s the best at it
me: you’re talking sense
that doesn’t fly
logical trains of progression are too hard
Okay then, musica para mi amigos!
Great new stuff:
One of the best covers ever (in my silly opinion):
We spontaneously broke out singing this at a party Saturday. Does it up the cool points at all if I say there were shots of tequila involved?
Am currently dancing to this. Our piece starts at the 1:47 mark. Lots of turns and floor work. My knees are bruised. Love.
Two of the most beautiful things in the world: piano and the Russian language spoken by a native.
