WHY I LOVE THE INTERNET [25]

WHY I LOVE THE INTERNET [19] 

Someone was able to upload a video of ALL 6 STARWARS films at the same time…sheer brilliance…utter genius…this is what the internet was made for!

CHRIS BROWN HAS BEEN KICKED OFF TWITTER!!!

haha this makes me laugh and cringe at the same time. Apparently he got into a heated/disgusting fight with a woman over tweets, to the point where the Twitter team finally had enough and just deleted his account. Awesome. 
He doesn’t deserve any attention, and the only negative thing to come from this is that his supporters are now hounding (and blaming) the woman he was arguing with. I can’t even link you to anything because of all the vulgar language. Just know that sometimes good things happen for no reason, like when a kitten smiles…a turtle flips itself over when it’s stuck on it’s back…and someone somewhere finds a way to shut Chris Brown up :)

WHY I LOVE THE INTERNET [4]
For my friend @beargen

It’s ironic to hear Henry Rollins, of all people, saying something like “listen to my words, even though you may want to rebel against them”
It speaks volumes when one of the most rebellious people of my generation is now the one telling those growing up that having a good head on their shoulders is the way to go…think about it.

Daily Thoughts…

I’m working on making that “Q&A” video that a lot of you sent me questions for - I PROMISE!!! The whole vlogging thing just isn’t jiving with me lately. I sit down in front of the camera, and suddenly I want to doanythingbut talk to it! But I’ve been keeping a list, updating it, and taking note of what I want to really talk about.

One thing that I want to cover before that is a Q that pops up on the regular; “why do you post so often”. For those of you new here, all of my social networks are tethered together, anchored to my Twitter account.
So, why do I “live” online? It’s like Donald Glover said on his Childish Gambino album “Camp”…if everyone knows everything about you, then no one can talk about you behind your back. I come from a history of rumors, with their roots stemming from a string of bad decisions on my part. One day I made the choice that I would live a positive life, and to clean up my reputation I started making every move public…so that if anyone ever felt like questioning my actions all they had to do was look online!

Sometimes it’s a headache, most of the time it’s fun! The fact that I’m a youth worker who studied technology’s effects on society is also huge. Do I make mistakes, yup, and when they go public it’s embarrassing. But to kid ourselves and think that just because someone doesn’t post something to Fbook it doesn’t mean they don’t struggle…is childish. I think that together we could use social networking to HELP each other live more positive/love-filled lives. Keeping each other accountable for our actions WITHOUT the harsh aftertaste of the “I told you so”.

Yup, so there’s that.

INSTAGRAM 3.0What do you guys think of all the changes? Not sure I’m a fan of the addition of a stalk-erm-map, and the interface is a little clunky but whatever.

I can’t believe I’ve taken 1000 photos with IG…
Honestly, I thought it was a joke at first and never thought I’d actually use it! Now I’m pretty sure 90% of my iPhone’s function is to provide me with Insta-nourishment.

Yup, this sums up the internet.

Turn your keyboard into a DaftPunk mixer!!!

I love finding gems like this online; it’s what the net was made for!

Me and @tylerkiros May Long 2012


For the past month SO MANY people kept mistaking me for Tyler on the Kiros poster for The Bunker concert. It got to the point where people were adding ME on Fbook thinking I was him (even his wife almost sent me a message ment for him…)
We decided that people are just focusing on the features, not how we actually look :P
Love you Ty! And all the boys in the band!

It’s been 6 years since I joined Facebook…
Now that timeline is a thing, I was able to go back and see just how many hours/days/years I’ve spent nurturing my presence online. Some would look at this and think “waste of time”, I see it as time well spent. I’ve had an internet outlet since Grade 9 (in the days of Geocities), and now using my connections through college and ministry, I’ve been able to take this hobby/interest and turn it into something of lasting value. To be able to reach out to people, learn alongside others, share information…and decline literally thousands of Farmville requests (yes I still get those). While I may have cursed Fbook’s birth from my little MySpace cave, I now fully embrace it as just another part of my life. The key is knowing when to type, and when to talk.
