I've come to the conclusion that Twitter can make the best of us sound like uninteresting a*sholes, not to mention the rest of us humans. As with LiveJournal, it makes me wonder if people continue to follow me because they don't want to offend me.
As for Google+, there's a reason why I don't like using Facebook. Pinning everything to one online identity? Unless there's a way to lock things down so that I'm the only one with access, no thanks.
I also realized that my mom uses Facebook a lot more than I do. She's asked my brother if one of his friends has one. She asked our badminton couch if he had one. She asks a lot of random people she knows if they have a Facebook, while I'm pretty much still in the MSN era of things. Sometimes e-mail if I don't like you. People ask 'do you have a Facebook' all the time, when the question is actually 'can I add you on Facebook'. Why can't people just say what they mean? Life would be a lot simpler.
So basically, I don't like Google+ and Facebook, and I think Google is evil. I mean, who says they're not evil unless they actually are? It's not a bad thing, being kind of evil, but it's still evil.
I watched The Social Network for a homework assignment. There were seven movies to chose from, but this was the only movie I wanted to watch but never did. We had to write either an essay on our feelings or a poem for the assignment. I chose to write the poem because I only had a few hours, but I used all the time I had to finish it anyway. At first I thought the movie was exciting and interesting, but I wasn't thinking too deeply into it. Then I wrote that poem and suddenly there was a lot of emotions invested into the process and also, self-loathing, but that's another matter entirely.( In which I try to talk about the movie but fail because my thoughts grew too complicated and I gave up midway. )
ComicCon gave us news on Avatar: Legend of Korra, which is being called The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra, wtf that makes no f*cking sense you idiots. I'm blaming the blue furries, because the avatar is the focus of the series, the last airbender was Aang and he's not even the last airbender anymore so how do you call a series that unless they're calling the next series Legend of Korra: The Next Avatar, which would be even more stupid. URGH. But aside from the title, OMG SO EXCITED. It's beautiful and I want to kill anyone who thinks girls have to have girly figures to be girls because Korra is awesome and female
and no one gets to take our female adventure series main character away.
I'm supposed to be writing but my notes for this one sort of looks like this for now: A and B somewhere. B finds out. Shit happens. C visits A. A and C have fun. C talks to B. A and B talk some more. I don't even remember what I was thinking when I wrote most of that, so I might not follow it at all, but damn. Stepping back, it's so easy to find everything I write so boring.
LJ has been gone the past few days, and it's just as distracting as it is when it's alive and well. I also read Watchmen during, and I have thoughts on that too, but mostly just that it was a heavy read. I'm not used to the American format for comics, and it took me a long while to finally be able to tell who's who. Once I could tell what was going on, it got much easier, and it's a very different experience from other medias, so I might be trying this sometime again. All in all a positive experience.
