If anyone knows a central-Oklahoma college student who needs to pick up some Humanities credit, send them my way! Current Mood: chipper

|My long-neglected Journal...
It was only when a co-worker asked me this morning about the strange quotes that shows up in her friends' list that I realized all my Facebook and Twitter status updates show up here on LiveJournal when I'm not even thinking about it. I mean, I set it up that way on purpose, afraid to let go of this journal, but also deluding myself into thinking that 140 characters could hold any import here as they do in those other environs.
Nope, they're two completely different beasts, and become increasingly confusing when I'm trying to balance the many comments I receive for these entries over on Facebook, versus the one or two that show up here. And the truth I have to face is, my priorities have changed. I no longer want to spend a half-hour to 45 min. each day typing up entries to commemorate that day's thoughts. And as the idea of sharing communal experiences with other friends here still appeals to me, we mutually peeking into each other's daily routines and landmarks, the truth is also that 90% of those people aren't doing that anymore either, as they too have made the migration.
I'll certainly continue to keep up with my friends and communities list here as I have the past six years, but for me and most of the other people that've moved on, all the real fun has been over at Facebook the past year and a half; it's just too easy to share there.
I'm sure I'll repurpose this blog at some point. Who knows? The new social media sites may eventually turn people back from brevity to more insightful journal entries. But I like to think that what you can sum up in those delicious little bit-size entries more frequently throughout the day speaks volumes more about your state of experience in the moment than a carefully orchestrated and proofed journal you know will be read by scores of other eyes. And having the option over there of creating and posting longer "Notes" when you feel like it, as well as easily sharing so much music, video, and pictures makes it a no-brainer. We shall watch and see... Current Mood: chipper

So all of you operas better step aside

So in light of the mainstream debate over the recent Force-choke interrogation scene:
1) It's certainly less harsh than slaughtering Tusken families and young children. This is future-Vader we're talking here!
2) It's on late; impressionable kids are in bed by 9 PM.
3) It's the highest-rated show in Cartoon Network history. Don't only give them some slack, but give us a lot more of these darkside meanderings!
