The Graduate Music

I just watched The Graduate and I must say that is an awesome movie.  Not to mention the music. Sadly the reason I watched it was because I saw the Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Costner movie, Rumour has it (watch isn’t very good, interesting, but not good) and found out that it was based on an older movie, the graduate which I was told was good.

I am now officially a Simon and Garfunkel fan especially for their lyrics.  I’m embarassed I wasn’t a fan before especially since I knew all about A hazy shade of winter (although I guess its because I do like the Bangles version better that I didn’t think of becoming a fan of theirs).

If you have not heard the Sounds of Silence and Mrs. Robinson listen to them now.

Seems the movie influence the lyrics of the Macarena with the line “I am not trying to seduce you.”

Twitter’s got power over you

April 14, 2009 at 8:17 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

According to an article Twitter is part of a move toward news that is too fast for people to process correctly.  Which means we’re not going to show the correct emotional response to things.  Also, it could make us have all seem like we have ADD with really short attention spans.  Could end up like John Mayer and get sucked into Twitter.  Heard he spends like 5 hrs a day on Twitter and that was a reason for Jennifer Aniston breaking up with him. 

Personally, I haven’t spent too much time on Twitter.  Facebook’s more of my thing and blogging too.  I don’t think people want to know every single part of my day.  Would you be interested in knowing what type of drink I have and when I drink it? The amazing thing is that it seems like senators and the like, basically people you wouldn’t think would Twitter, are the ones that think you would be interested in their drink choice. 

Some people do Twitter relevent information.  I mean there was a Twitter revolution in Moldova earlier this month.  I hadn’t even known that many people had computers there, not to mention Twitterers. Moldova is a small country that was part of the Soviet Union.  Because the Communist part won the election, the young people, the Twitterers, twittered and formed a revolution.  The government hadn’t expected the number of protesters that came out or the chaos that ensued. So the revolution was called the Twitter Revolution. 

Does Twitter have power over you or have you remained Twitter free?
