I just finished watching Clash of the Titans on Netflix – the old one. The effects are actually pretty good I’d say. It’s one of those things where they didn’t have the tools at the time to make the film exactly as they intended, but they did alright. I’m curious to see the new one, I haven’t seen it yet, and I hadn’t seen this one since I was in Junior High.
It’s been a few months, and we’re almost at November – Pepper will be 6 months old!
So much has happened this year, the summer just zipped right by and Pepper got to be a healthy sized baby. It kind of sucks because there’s a ton of clothes that she never even wore, but oh well, I’d rather she get big and strong than be small.
A guy at Gamestop (yes, that Gamestop) asked me if we were feeding her steak. I laughed because she was once so small she couldn’t keep her body temperature, so bigger is better in my mind.
I’ve recently changed modes in Twitter, I’ve un-followed some celebrities and I’ve started to follow local Salt Lake people. So far I’ve drastically enjoyed it better and it helps keep me from feeling like I’m lost in a sea of people and faces. I still follow some big names, but I think tipping the Twitter scale to a more local approach (even when you don’t really know them) is novel.
I’ll tweet about this and some of the people who’ve been kind enough to follow-me-back (and I don’t think you necessarily *have-to* follow me back, it’s not like you actually know me, and even then, I’d have to respect you if you didn’t. I’ll try to be interesting, but at the end of the day, being interesting can be exhausting. Feel free to comment on that) will possibly read this post and be like, oh, so that’s why @Wudan07 follows me. Interesting. In my own way, I found only one or two of them independently, then as they RT or reply to each other I’ll go and read that other person’s tweets and possibly follow them.
I think what sets Twitter apart from other social network sites is that it doesn’t try to be ‘the last goddamned site you will ever go to’ and for that I would like to initiate a slow clap, that grows slowly in to grandiose applause.
Twitter still tries to be elusive, I think that may be by design, but I think the death of it is when your mom would start using it. Your mom won’t get the 160 character (140?) limit, or what a character is. She’ll go back to Facebook and post and re-post some crap about bags of monies or some tongue-in-cheek naughty where-do-you-like-to-put-your-purse-down tidbit.
The last thing I don’t like about Facebook is that it’s just not secure; it seems like it’s bad design and an attempt at technology lock-in that just seems like it’s not there; a better technology will come along and consume it.
