Thanks for the Feedback?

Dear Readers,

     I apologize for this blog being late. I have been dealing with other problems this past week Anyways, I have been an YouTube user and viewer going on four years now. And I couldn’t help noticing a few problems with it.

Youtube-logo    For starters,I have grown tired of the in-fighting on the YouTube video comments pages. You see after watching an episode of Foamy the Squirrel about forums and how they have become so dumb down to where you can not even voice your own opinion, I have realized he is right. Just the other day, I decided to watched a video by Taylor Swift and all I saw were comments made by others to silence someone’s opinion. True, these people shouldn’t be watching the video if they hate it so much. Yet at the same time, they should be able to voice their opinion without the someone biting their head off. I feel people forget at times that the internet was also made to express your opinion and not a popularity contest for the next top celebrity.

   The next thing that bothers me is those schleps that try to correct you on your opinion and think they did you a real favor. This happened to me when I watched that new music video, “Co-dependent” on YouTube, I made a comment about how the song reminded me of “Independent” by Destiny’s child. Then, someone with their so-called, infinite wisdom had to correct me. I,mean, I can admit to being wrong. But, I do not think or feel I need the help of some know-it-all jerk who lives only to correct others on their knowledge of pop culture. And plus isn’t YouTube already trash? Who cares if you get something wrong? And if you are going to do any kind of correcting,then you are better off picking on the people who make comments with all the words misspelled.

Now for the final annoyances created by YouTube, the comments where someone decided to remark on how many people disliked the video. At times this kind of remark can be funny. But, sometimes it’s almost as lame as when someone says “your mom” when someone else has said something they did not like.

Well, I have to go now. I have to go and take care of some comment someone made about my comment on some else about Taylor Swift’s new music video.

Peace Out,

Cyndro

Hamlet: Reinvented

  Last Wednesday evening, I watched an new adaptation of Hamlet on OETA. I have always enjoyed Shakespeare’s Hamlet. I enjoy the part where Hamlet speaks to Yorick,the jester, and when he speaks with his father for the first time. He learns how Claudius killed his father and became king.

Now aside from the acts that are normally shown in the play, what made this adaption different was the contemporary view and style. In some parts, we see the actors through the view of security cameras and characters in modern everyday clothing. Do you remember how Hamlet slowly descends into madness, this is accented even more with the use of mirrors on the floor and a regular free standing one. They go into more detail with this at the end of the movie. Now, my favorite part is when they have Hamlet take a security camera and smashing it to the ground, then says “Now, I am alone.”  This shows how Hamlet has disconnected from the rule of his so-called step-uncle/father. Now, he knows that Uncle did the deed of killing his father and will probably do the same to him.

Well, I must go. Until then parting is such sweet sorrow.

How to become a full-fledged Goth Girl in a year!!!

I,myself, have been a emerging Goth for a year now. In that past year, I have joined a social networking site on Ning. The people were nice and taught me more about being a Goth. Some of it was something I already knew. But, it reassured me as what we, Goths, are about. It felt nice to know I am not the only one who wishes to stay a Goth. Very detailed GwenThough, I feel I can do better than as Goth. I do understand my limits and what I know what will happen if I do not follow the rules. I decide to help me achieve my newer status as Goth. I decided that I will make a list of resolutions that will help me better gothic and loving choices. So, here are my new year’s resolutions:

1. Read books on the Gothic Tradition

2. write in Journal and more poems

3. Draw and do photography

4. Visit the library once a week

5. Find a club that will host a poetry night and audition

6. Find some new Goth bands and listen to music

7. Find a job to cover for these expenses

8. Find some new light/dark clothing for summer.

9. Go to more Dungeons and Dragons meetings

10. Thank Mom for all she does.

What does it mean to be Goth?

What does it mean to be Goth to me? It means having your own sense of style and you can fit in with people who share the same interest as you do. It kind of releases you to dress a certain way that most people would not dress. The nice thing is no one really cares if you wear what you wear. Especially nowadays with women wearing black nail polish. Even though some goths seem to be off putting, we are really nice people. I can be a nice goth as well and a nasty one,too. Not all of us listen to heavy metal, we can be into music like punk-rock and some rap. So, to me, being goth means to be able to explore the unknown world and become part of a close,rocking, social group. I am not saying become a goth,but I am trying to inform you on how we real goths are like.
