Love Me Tender

Look what I found :). I made this video about three years ago and have had YouTube accounts deleted [thanks to that video of Elvis Costello on SNL I had up] and computers crash, and I haven't been able to find it. So...I came across it today online by googling myself and was able to download it and upload it again to dailymotion [since YouTube hates me]. It was great to see it again. It made me cry a know, in a good way.

"I'm Awesome, You're Awesome" the Ringtone phonezoo, you can create your own ringtones [for free btw], and I created this "I'm Awesome, You're Awesome" ringtone, because I'm retarded and I do shit like that.

I keep forgetting that once you create it, other people can then send it to their own phones. So...88 random people out there somewhere have my voice as their ringtone. Now, that's awesome...and also retarded.

Current TV

Current TV is an independent media company headed up by Al Gore that gives viewers the opportunity to create and submit their own content. I think this is a phenomenal step in the right direction for keeping people in the US aware of what's going on around them both inside and outside of their own country. It also gives talented people with something to say an outlet. One of the things I love about the time we're living in is that we all have the opportunity to make our voices heard. Plus, mainstream media is highly censored.

Aside from all this, though, the pods [3-7 minutes each] are really interesting, and as the name suggests, it keeps you up-to-date; it keeps you current. If we don't know what's going on around us, we may as well be dead...we certainly wouldn't be truly living. To live is being connected to the things and the people around you. With Current TV [the television station and the website], you have the opportunity to see, through someone else's lens, anything from young people now blogging in China, the mental health of US soldiers, and solar bath houses for tibetan buddhist nuns, to nipple ring removal via pliers by US airport security.

Look into it. Get addicted to it. Spread the word.

I mean...did you know this went on in San Fransisco to protest the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq? I didn't. I wasn't there, but that doesn't mean I don't wanna know about it.

Know what's going on in the world around you. Stay current.
