Day late! Family is in town! Exhausted, but hooray!
1. Who likes new computer backgrounds?
I know I do! In any case, I’d highly suggest the Neon Rings wallpaper with built-in widgets that just got some coverage over at Lifehacker. Pretty rainbow colors, a dark energy-saving background and shiny things that move? Bestillmyheart…
2. M4M, 22, Wants Hawt Web 3.0 Action
Hey Twitterers (Tweeps?)! Are you obsessed with finding filth for free online? Love checking out which grad student’s trolling for sex in your college library (coughcoughBobstcough)? Purposely stare at people on the street, hoping they’ll post something on Missed Connections about you? Then come follow bestCL! A good buddy of mine started this with one simple goal: to spotlight the freakiest Craigslist ads o’ the day. Suggestions welcome! (And yes, I just blogged about Twitter about C’list. Meta-bluh.)
3. Röyksopp Destroys Los Angeles… With Music!
Well, with magic Space Invaders-shaped lights.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
I just can’t stop listening to their newest album, “Junior.” Goddamn, Scandinavians are the best.
Back from Seattle and ready to weather out the last two months of my undergraduate career! Now, what have you kiddos been up to on the Internets?
1. Sen. Chuck Schumer says “I do” to gay weddings.
Sure, in the journalism world, he’s often laughed at. But right now, Chucky Boy is my hero!
It’s time. Equality is something that has always been a hallmark of America, and no group should be deprived of it. New York, which has always been at the forefront on issues of equality, is appropriately poised to take a lead on this issue.
2. NYU gets Hill-Dawg for Commencement!
Speaking of awesome NY senators, Schumer’s former counterpart, Hillary Rodham Clinton is speaking at my Commencement in May! She’ll be joined by playwright John Patrick Shanley and White House journalist (/ “The Daily Show” regular) Helen Thomas.
3. Graham gabs with Yoko.
My good friend Graham from Future Shipwreck just interviewed Mrs. John Lennon herself, Yoko Ono for The Advocate. I only hope to be that awesome when I’m 76!
4. Emiliana Torrini hits YouTube with a li’l “droon-diggah-diggah-doondoon”
Some peppy music for your Monday afternoon enjoyment. I had “Me And Armini” on repeat for the whole Seattle trip. Here’s what’ll happen when you listen to Emiliana: You’ll bounce along to her perky beats, feel a little embarassed, then realize “Oh what the hell” and just bounce even higher.
