The Social Network

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross OST for The Social Network.

Free five track sampler! I have no interest at all in seeing the movie (considering my feelings for Facebook in general), but hey, free Reznor!

Cruise Ship 'Rocked'



So, back in 2006 I went a cruise. It was with friends, almost free, and ports of call were in Mayan territory, so I was fantastically happy. First port of call we went and saw ruins, and figured the second day would be a relaxing day at the beach (also known as I hide under a giant umbrella and get drunk day). The next morning we were woken by ship-wide announcements that the port trip was cancelled due to gale force winds. We spent the day rocking from one end to the other in a way that my mother known at the time, her hands would have been white from wringing them together. Despite common sense, perhaps due to the nature of the rocking; my night previously; or maybe because I knew I did not have to drive anywhere, I chose the option of getting smashed. It was a wise decision as the drunk people walked with the boat's rocking rather than against it, and yet I see a clip like this and just shudder. If we were already at gale force winds, and the worst we suffered was outside access locked down and a few chairs lost, imagine what kind of winds and sea they are facing knocking over forklifts.

There is a limit

Ok, so, I get it, you are a Christian. You became born-again, you now believe. It is incredibly important to you in every single way.

Do you really need to make every single Facebook post about how God or the Word makes you stronger and how everyone else has problems because they just don't believe enough or say God Bless every time they post?

I get having things you believe in. I'm the poster child for a lot of stuff, and I thrust my beliefs upon people I know rather than letting them choose. It is a concession for living in any manner not as a hermit. Perhaps it is my own fault, for not being religious. Perhaps I need to expand my own perspective out to also include things I find either tacky or distasteful. But in any case, it is wearing, and another reason I rarely log onto places like Facebook.

(And on a side note, the recycling bin is 20 feet away. Consider it free exercise, rather than making me bust you for paper and water bottles.)
