My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

Stop the noise!

I have decided that web sites with embedded audio should be stricken from the internets! They’re not cool, they’re not fun, they’re fucking annoying.  They’re especially bad if your computer is connected to 5.1 surround sound. Thanks to I don’t think my cat will be frequenting my room for some time. Apparently, she doesn’t like pop-up ads to scream at her at dawn, not that I don’t share her sentiment.

At the very least, the coders who invented embedded audio should burn in a car fire, or just have a really really bad headache for several days.

    hahah i wholeheartedly agree 🙂

    i just saw your episode of this american life, and i think you’re fantastic. we share tastes in a lot of stuff, actually, from what i can see. read the onion, tattoos are rad, cats are cool too. but i do hate chuck palanuck. haha sorrrreeeee. i’m a big Charles Bukowski fan myself. you would like him i think? i would hate to assume stuff like that because i dont even know you but Bukowski is really nihilistic and doesnt pull any punches when it comes to revealing the nitty-gritty side of life. which is resemblant of chuck palanuck, i think.

    woooooo i get carried away talking about books.

    Ha! I bet your Daisy isn’t named after a Palahniuk character… I’m definitely going to check out Bukowski, I need something new to read.

    Word, word, word. That goes double if you’re at work, and triple if you work in a library. Good grief, internet!
