boring title, i know :P~

there’s a reason for it. “what should i do today?” that was the first thing that came into my head when i woke up. and the thought didn’t go away all day. i had some stuff to do, but i still had most of the day with nothing planned. which meant that i just browsed the internet and went through peoples blog’s. i ended up reading some fascinating stuff, and decided that i might as well post about it.

here’s a summary…

“Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico continue to spark news and opinion pieces all over the Web, but by far the strangest theme is the “end times” scenario. Based on prophecies in the Bible (and the Koran, and the “third secret of Fatima”—and “scientific” prophesies from ecologists), bloggers all over the world are discussing the signs that we are “entering the end of days.”

Micheal Moore’s Open Letter to W.

“Any idea where all our helicopters are? It’s Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot. Man, was that a drag.”

also a must read on the same blog: “Grandma’s 90th Birthday
another extremely interesting blog was “ente paralelo“. the most interesting post was about a college project the author is carrying out. “Each student can decide what would be the topic of the book.I choose fashion by location. I’m planning to include some serious essays about cultural identity through fashion, as I go to very distinct locations and take a series of minimum 30 people per location. I’m posting the images in my website while in college.”
i also ran across the postsecret blog, i was watching MTV a couple of days ago and saw a video which had used the idea. lots of people holding up postcards telling their secrets. nice video, but i wonder if “postsecret” was given any credit for the idea. correction. “Did The All-American Rejects Steal Your Images For Their Music Video? No. The band made a generous donation of $2,000 to the National Hopeline Network. They were given full permission to use PostSecrets in their MTV video.” I guess i stand corrected 😀
that’s it, since the postsecret blog doesn’t have a “next blog” tab, i’m going to call it a day and go to sleep now.
