This may or may not be a generational thing, but I’ve noticed how so many kids my age are lyric-obsessive. From the tattoos they get, to the Facebook statuses they make, to the homemade t-shirts for their favorite bands; the lyrics are front and center to what they share. Granted, I wasn’t around to observe my parents (or anyone their age) first hand, but they describe music as just that… music. It seems that those my age or around it appear so concerned with the singer is singing. Why is this?
Some bands can effectively take me back to the happy state-of-mind I was in when I first discovered them. Northstar is one of those bands.
I can only hope that in 1, 3, 5, whatever many years I’m still at my job, and I’m still getting that butterfly-like feeling when discussing the future of the product. Can’t express how exciting it is to be a part of something you really think will be a big, big deal.
1. Reference the eerily common way people found the video
2. Make fun of those who “disliked” the video
3. Actually be witty.
Unfortunately, 3 on it’s own rarely happens.
I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a personal blog. Typically people have three reasons to do this. They..
1. want to become a famous blogger/expert in a field,
2. think people will care about their opinion, or
3. desire some sort of medium to express their thoughts outside of Facebook statuses and tweets.
I fall under option 3, with hopes that option 2 will follow at some point. But really, I want some very stream-of-conscious like blog that aesthetically allows for short and long posts. My ideal design is a home page that looks like a calendar, with each day showing the number of posts, or “thoughts” (or whatever word I think is clever and witty enough when I get around to this), with the most recent post being linked at the top. A menu with limited options (Stream [this would be previews of all recent “thoughts” in a default Tumblr like look], About Me, Contact?) would be in their somewhere. Otherwise, it’s a very minimalistic, white background, basic looking blog that is based on time of post and tags used.
I need to learn HTML or something.
