According to the City of Boston website, these are the necessary precautions for staying safe online. WTF??

Hot on the heels (well, lukewarm) of A-ha’s Take on Me literal translation video comes this Total Eclipse of the Heart literal translation video. Personally, even without the literal translation this is one creepy as hell video. If anyone has any metaphorical translation for me, I’d like to hear it!
Incidentally, according to Tom Reynolds, the author of I Hate Myself and Want To Die (an utterly hilarious book about the 52 most depressing songs he knows), regarding Total Eclipse of the Heart:
The Welsh singer’s collaboration with Meat Loaf producer Jim Steinman still vanquishes all those who turn around to gaze into its bright eyes. Under Steinman’s direction, Tyler rasps her way through a million permutations of the phrase “every now and then, I get a little bit [insert neurosis here]” before losing it during the song’s demented chorus. Clocking in at over seven minutes, Total Eclipse is Wagner’s Ring Cycle without the funny hats; the equivalent of an opera company pelting you with copies of Anne Rice novels. You’re completely drained when it’s over and desperately in need of a shower to rinse off the raven droppings.
Yep. That’s pretty damned depressing right there.
Edit: I just found out that this video was shot in a Sanatarium, which might go a long way toward explaining things.
I’ve recently joined the ranks of the Xbox 360 owners, and I’ve discovered that my console actually has a voice of its own. Yes, it blogs about what and how I’ve been playing. Go check out what my Xbox 360 has been saying about me: Feeyaad’s Xbox 360 Blog. According to the console:
…and Feeyaad won’t admit this, but I had to force him to stop.
It had to force me to…wha..?? Hmmm…Sounds like a certain someone else I know ;) You can sign your Xbox 360 to blog about you by signing up your gamertag at 360Voice.gamerdna.com. Put your console’s blog URL in the comments. I’d be keen to read what yours has to say about YOU.
Do you know the Internet? The meme-y side of the ‘net? Greg Rutter has compiled a list of 99 things that you should have seen on the net by now. If you haven’t, then get cracking! How many of these can you say you’ve experienced so far? I think I can proudly (or not) say I’ve got most of em down. Personally, I think I’d have to add at least one more to make it an even 100: animutation.
So how well do you think you know your Internet acronyms? Take this little test to find out! I scored a paltry 24 out of 30. Can you do better?
