A trip to Vancouver

Friday

I got curious yesterday and I wish I wouldn't have.
First Jyl posted about knowing who Rebecca Black was and then I kept seeing Perez Hilton make reference to her and then she was trending on twitter......so curiosity got the best of me.  I finally youtubed her last night to see what the talk was all about.

Well, there is 3 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.

45 million hits?  I can see why.  It's like a train wreck watching her video/song and now what is even worse is that I have it stuck in my head. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Really.
It's like people are turning a little tooo much to the internet.  Supporting random junk and turning it into a sensation.  Putting their entire lives as status updates.
I think social media has done great things for people, don't get me wrong, but then there are the youtube videos and Ke$has out there that just wreck it.  Where'd the talent go? Why aren't there more Elton Johns?  Adeles? Oy.  Maybe I'm just getting picky in my old age.  But really, does anyone else think that Justin Bieber needs to hire a new stylist?  Is it really comfy walking around like a penguin? At least he got a haircut.

Well.  I'm glad I got that off my chest.  Normally, I'd have my students to enlighten me and I wouldn't have to waste my time googling.  I kinda miss my students come to think of it.
They keep me feeling young.
Well, at least I know that it is Saturday tomorrow and Sunday comes afterwards.
Thank you, Rebecca Black.

  4. I had iTunes playing as I was scanning FB and saw your link to this post with the title "Friday" and I burst out laughing because the song was playing on my iTunes. Yes, I downloaded it (I did NOT pay for it though). The lyrics are pathetic, but there's something about the tune that stays with you. Damn you, Rebecca Black!
