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

Radio Static

Dear Readers,

Do you remember along ago when I discussed to you the stay out of my face Shareenaminor subtleties between Taylor Swift and Skye Sweetnam. Well, I planned to do the same thing with Jesse McCartney and Justin Bieber. But, I felt another wrong must be righted before I could even begin talking about these two pop-singers. Now, just for fun. I’m going to let you to guess what it is. Did you say radio broadcasting? Then you are correct, dear sir or madam. Ever since I learned of that this device ever existed, I have enjoyed listening to music of singers/songwriters like Barenaked Ladies,Goo Goo Dolls, Green Day, and many others. I,mean, did I ever love dancing and singing along to music back then. Boy, one thing that everyone has to agree on about the nineties has to be the music. However, I have started to, like many others, notice the “More rock, less talk” motto being ignored by my favorite radio stations. It feels like I’m being constantly bombarded by either commercials or some idiotic joke made by a local early-morning DJ. I understand that the main point of these audio- peddle pushers is to make money and the radio-stations are dealing with the struggle between internet radio and keeping the attention of their fellow listeners. But, I personally feel the ads should be stripped off the airwaves and these Deejays should be fired without severance pay for their lame jokes and constant ramblings of stupidity. I could say the same about the vee-jays( music video jockeys usually found on VH1 and MTV doing the top twenty countdown), but that is an evil saved for another day. Another complaint that I have is the amount of music being played on the radio, I believe it has gone from being a whole hour of musical goodness to two songs per hour. And that is if you’re lucky. But most of the time, it’s like one song and it is by “America’s little sweetheart”, Taylor Swift. Please Folks, don’t get me wrong. I do think Taylor Swift is a great singer. But, it would be nice not to hear a song that was not a break-up or love song written by little miss American dream occasionally. At least there is one bright side to this radio static, around 7:00 pm central time our musical savior, John Tesh, is comes on. And music reigns supreme once again and commercials must take the back seat for the next five hours.

I also like how the John Tesh, the DJ, gives out important information rather than some idiotic joke an keeps the talk real brief so that way you can actually enjoy the music. I know there are some music stations that actually play music in the same manner. But, I can only stand to listen to just two songs and that is it. Anyways, I think I’m going to go and listen some Third Eye Blind for a while.

So, Cyndro saying peace-out and catch you later!

 

 

 

At first,you don’t succeed.

amazed rogueWell, it’s finally official. The season of fall has flown in and slapped our so-called, little, sleepy town right in the face. To be honest though, I love fall for the dewy, let’s go and get a cup of apple cider, sunshiny, days. I love riding to and from places and seeing the leaves. And of course like some people, I love that fall fever that comes with the anticipation of Halloween. So, it’s unfortunate that it must to come to a short end. It also has made me,like the other twelve months of this year, realize that I did not have the best year as I could have. So, I decided to make some early New Year’s resolutions The First thing I plan to have done before New Year’s Eve is have read the last Harry Potter Book. I like to read it before I see the movie. Second, I will try to avoid boredom by joining up with a group of some sort. I would be in complete rapture if it was poetry or even a movie club. Now, the third part is I want to write more letters and stay closer to my family. I also will try to blog more often. I really do enjoy it and it keeps active in the world. The fifth promise will be to make at least one podcasts and vid for my site for each month. Lastly and unfortunately, I must do what I can to get back to college. I wanted to start some math classes to help with my problems in math. In fact, I plan to start studying my Latin flashcards at 9pm.Well, Catch you next week!!!

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.
