LIFT: 10-14

Today on twitter I learned....

That rust can be cool!




DANGER Do not cross her


A cool videogame is copying Radiohead and doing a pay-what-you-want deal.  Their parent company is filing for bankruptcy.   A 90% claimed piracy rate.


Captain Lou Albano died.  And for the record he is Cindy Lauper's dad and not Super Mario!

aside: Twitter death hoaxes aren't cool, so choose your sources carefully and don't be afraid to do your own follow up research.  You are responsible for your own tweets people, don't RT something that is a hoax.


Leona Lewis got punched out.  She probably forgot who she was for a second.  And in that second neither she nor  I knew who she was.


Rush Limbaugh got dumped from the bidding group for the St Louis Rams.  HAHA!


These are the intersection of Creepy and Hot!   And very dangerous, both for the wearer and those who may see them.




And one of my favorite blogs got caught in the crossfire between the different swastikas.  It is also an ancient and Buddhist symbol, but in the West, it has been used for something so terrible that we have a hard time seeing it as anything else.


And if this Ebay/NHL widget isn't cool, then nothing is!!


Until Tomorrow!

Learned It From Twitter!

LIFT!!

So today I learned that Bloomberg wasted $2-$3MM buying BusinessWeek.  The magazine industry is dying guys, did you not get the memo?  I suppose the brand name has a value if done in an online form.  I am sure we are going to see some more of these type of deals in the near future as the publishing industry dies a slow painful death.

I also learned that Rihanna's new album drops on Nov 23rd!!  Beat that.  (Too soon?)

While American Idol LOSER  (they are all losers, but...) Adam Archeletta has a new music of XMAS tunes out.  Bing Crosby did them better, and straighter.

Nasa is using a song from McFly at the International Space station.  Can't wait until it meets Skylabs fate!



Wow, that was horrible.

American Soccer's future was in a car accident.  So much for Operation 2010!

And in more depressing news, the soundtrack to New Moon will be out on friday.

3 CD releases, people still buy these things?!!?

Don't worry, I won't always use and abuse the trending topics.
