The news is doubled with the news that the FBI is more clearly going to oversee the investigation into the shooting of Chris Brown. All of this points to the people in charge recognizing that what the Ferguson police did last night was wrong, and I’m sure that everyone’s hard work to get live footage out there and spread across social media played an active part in that.
If you and I are buds, because then you probably have the means to talk to me, and you’re feeling down I’m always here to at least listen. Even if I have nothing to say, I’ve done this before and I’ll do it again. I know what it’s like to not have anyone hear you out and no one should have to feel that way. It blows. But I’m a stupidly loyal friend.
This is the original list from that song post I was just tagged in. This is the results I got when I did it on my computer. Check out the previous post to see what it was on my Zune, which is a better representation of what I actually listen to.
1. The Specials - Do the Dog 2. Super Mario Sunshine - Final Battle 3. A weird Japanese CD of children’s songs - Hibari ひばり 4. Simian - Stress-Goldfinger 5. Rayman Soundtrack - Land of Music 3 6. Myst 3: Exhile Soundtrack - Saavedro’s Theme 7. The Toasters - If You Love Me 8. Gorillaz - To Binge 9. Kate Ryan - Scream For More 10. Lucky Stiff (studio cast recording) - Speaking French 11. Steve Winwood - Higher Love 12. Aretha Franklin - Think 13. Myst 4: Revelations Soundtrack - Dream 14. Scott Pilgrim Movie Soundtrack - Love (Bonus Track) 15. The Producers (Original Broadway Cast) - Haben Sie Gehört Das Deutsches Band 16. Yoko Kanno - we’re the great 17. Savage Garden - The Animal Song 18. Gwen Stefani - The Real Thing 19. Myst I Soundtrack - Selenitic Mystgate 20. Frank Sinatra - Moonlight Serenade
Welp, that went pretty much as I thought it would: the rules as they are just showcase your music collection, not what music you actually listen to. I mean, like 25% of the songs came from video games and another 50% are songs I haven’t listened to in a long time. Not a good representation of what I’m listening to these days at all. But oh well. I guess if I’ve tagged you, you can make the executive rule change to be allowed 5 skips. I mean, I had to skip like the little sound bytes or sound effect files about 3 times.
1. Young Love - Discotech 2. Journey - Mother, Father 3. Sugar Ray - She’s Different 4. The Bird and the Bee - My Fair Lady 5. chromeo - Since You Were Gone 6. Panty and Stocking Soundtrack - Fly Away 7. Coraline Soundtrack - Reunion 8. Dr. Steel - Land Of The Lost 9. Michael Jackson - I Just Can’t Stop Loving You 10. They Might Be Giants - Brookllyn (in situ) 11. Raymond Scott - Backwards Overload 12. Kaskade - I Remember (Strobelite Edition) 13. Polysics - Walky Talky 14. Gorillaz - Broken 15. Dave Matthews Band - Say Goodbye 16. P.O.D. - Mark My Words 17. Gwen Stefani - The Real Thing 18. Starbomb - Mega Marital Problems 19. The Benjamin Gate - Lay It Down 20. Eiffel 65 - Now Is Forever
Ok, that’s much better. This is actually the second list I’ve made. The first one I made using the media player on my computer, and the results I came up with were all not very representative of what I listen to because I was shuffling through every sound file on my computer. This list was populated by shuffling all on my Zune, which I believe has created a much more representative list. Not enough ska on there, but I have a lot of music on my player. I’ll be posting the original list after this post, but I wanted this to be, like, the official response to being tagged. I recommend using your portable media player and not just your computer to make a better list.
Communicate: Talk about things, the good and bad. Build trusts. Be honest. Be faithful. Be there for one another. Make time for one another. Leave the past to the past, which include ex’s. Know that having arguments are normal. Know that you won’t always be happy. Don’t expect change. Appreciate the flaws. Appreciate each other. Become best friends. Lastly, love each other unconditionally.
Funny, someone asked me this in Japanese the other day after seeing it written out.
Uh, I think the easiest way to explain it is, think “ninja-bat” but then put a k before the a. So it’s like “ninj-ka-bat.” I picked the name because I figured there already was a cadet named ninja-bat (there is) and I wanted it to be original. Turns out it is pretty original, as I can always find it when I need to sign up for something.
Ugh, I’ve just said my name so much that it looped around and did that “it sounds weird to say your own name” thing. Ninjkabat. I am the Ninjkabat. bloooerg.
Anyway, remember, also, that ninjkabat is actually my third ninja name. When ninja come of age we finally get to pick our own name, but because “of age” is around 12 or 13, everyone invariably picks something stupid that they regret almost immediately and end up taking another name. Three or four is the average before we decide on something that we can use our whole lives, and baring something unforseen, like, my face being revealed or everyone I know turning on me or needing to fake my own death, I’m pretty sure this name will stick with me.
Is this still a thing people do, or has it generally been acknowledged as pure attention-whoring these days? Regardless, the rain has cancelled my plans for today, so I’ll be around all day if you have any serious, burning questions to ask me (or silly ones. Whatevs). I’m not afraid to admit I just want attention.
Fire is the oldest meme, given to mortals by Promemetheus
Fire actually is one of the oldest memes.
In academic settings, a meme is a unit of cultural knowledge that can be passed on among members of the species. So, knowledge of how to make fire is a meme, your grandmother’s recipe for sweet potato pie is a meme, a working cultural knowledge of a tale like Star Wars is a meme. Most things are memes: anything really that isn’t instinct is one.
It’s interesting, because for the internet usage it actually used to be pretty close: a meme was one inside joke and encompassed any media that referred to that joke. Nowadays I hear people referring to a single picture as a meme and not the repeated joke elements within that picture as a meme. Like “look at all these memes I made,” and I say “but they’re all based around the same meme - the same inside joke. Why’d you use the plural?”
does anyone else accidentally stare at a boys penis when hes wearing pants
me but it’s never an accident
DO GIRLS REALLY DO THIS
yep, I’m just like, how can you hide a penis there? like where does it go?
it’s not even in a sexual way, i’m just like, how does it fit in there? is it uncomfortable?
You see, guys pants are made with this in mind, and if they’re at all worth wearing will have plenty of room for everything. It’s why I didn’t understand the skinny jeans fad: it seemed the point of that was so that there wouldn’t be room which would make it look bigger. We appreciate the concern, but the only time we fret is when we get a no reason boner, which can crowd things up down there.
