Shafted.org – is currently featuring an extended version of my last “crushing” comment.
All good things end.
My beautiful high school, the best in the state, home of liberal thought and a diverse student body. It’s been reduced to any other school you might randomly walk past on the street. Metal Detectors. Uniforms. Loss of AP classes. This was the best public school in the city and state for years running. It really makes me realize that i’m a different person now, since the place where i really grew up is nothing like i remember it already. There are students… there are seniors there right now who never got to have class with some of my favourite teachers. Faculty members who have passed away and were celebrated by their former students every year are now just names on the wind. And after the class of 2001 graduates, i don’t think anyone will know who i am. I’m just another random alumni who sometimes comes back to visit his teachers (since i won’t know any more students).
I think i might cry.
Um, i take that link back. Cute layout, no content. Like, with no content being even less than i have going for me here (: What’s with all these teeny bopper bastards and their tiny fonts! This font is small, but it’s not tiny! Damned teeny bopping bastards, trying to make me go blind. Err… i’m going to go develop some content now…
The blog directory is getting closer to the day i added this little nugget of joy to my site, which means soon i will rule the world. Errr… or something. Meanwhile, if you think i should start to allow line-breaks for paragrapahs as long as i still refrain from editting, let me know.
Well, that’s one sign of the times: the Geffen site doesn’t bother with formality, and instead just tells you up front that you’re gonna be hearing mostly about Interscope artists. The main page features an at once revealing and encourage roster of artists. Headlining are the inevitable Eminem, Jurassic 5 (cool group, boring live), U2 (well, at least they didn’t get dropped), and two groups i’ve never heard of. Then there is the second tier of “hip” artists, the ones i know including Enrique Iglesias, Sonic Youth, Mya, and No Doubt (whose new single i actually like). The bottom of the page is encouraging: Black Eyed Peas, Bloodhound Gang, Dre, and Beck. A big “Ewwwww” for having to look at AC radio king Sting, but huge bonus points for having a new Joan Osborn CD lined up!!! Go Joan!!!
