It has been brought to my attention…

…that a google image search for “voltaire goth” lists several images from my site on the first page.

Huh. $internet_popularity++

In unrelated news, I really wish I had gone with a more artistic career choice, or that at the very least I programmed for more creative endeavors. I miss having inspiration and aspirations, two things I may have lacked since moving to Ithaca.

In other unrelated news, I’m considering trying this whole ‘Twitter‘ thing (which I had previously been discounting as a silly fad). If that goes well, chances are you’ll hear more about it from me.

Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

In its entirety, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, the coolest thing since Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Firefly, or The Guild:

For the record, I’ve known about Dr. Steel for months. I think he’s cool, too, and the music is good to dance to. But Dr. Horrible has the better narrative and the music is good to sing-along to.

Word of the Day: Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia

The things I do when I should be working…

Ladies, he’s a keeper.

I don’t see why this guy needs a video dating service. Afterall, he’s very romantic and everything, as well. If I weren’t already taken, he would certainly have my interest! It seems like I’m just his type, too, as he so eloquently states, “I think it’s pretty hot that when a woman that is-is a goth, like I am”. Also, I like the same things like he does, such as carpools, museums, symphonies, and strip clubs.

The rickrollings will continue until morality improves.

Soon the Rickrolling phenom will become too mainstream, and I will be forced to stop liking it so much. Not really. Well, maybe, but it would probably be coincidental. I wouldn’t want the terrorists to win, afterall.

If you don’t know what they’re going on about with the actual news section of the video, here’s the story. It’s worth looking at even if you hate real news, as there’s some humorous photoshop mashup mockery submitted by readers.
