echo elsewhere

I'm going to Boston!

Haven't been there in far too long. I, along with Maxxed Out Pop & The Queen Bee, will be a-visitin' Good Time Charlie. The trip is actually happening this weekend for QB's birthday which is July 25th and I feel it's sort of for my birthday (July 14th) as well.

If I had any spoons left, I'd tell you what sort of day I had. I'd also tell you what spoons have to do with it.

I'm fairly certain I'll tweet (link to the left), post to instagram (username: echoverse) and all that other happy social horseshit while hanging about in Bean Town.

Wish me luck!

They Took Scroogle Away!

I've been on a bit of a "regular Internet" hiatus for some time now. The last time I opened my laptop was March 18, 2012 to watch the "Talking Dead" online bonus segment according to my browser history (and information on

Throughout this period, I was not receiving or checking messages, posts, mentions, etc., etc. Instead, I sent notes to twitter on the "mobile Internet" through smartphone applications. (I know, I know, it's all the same Internet, but I still make a distinction between the various methods of connecting to it.)
If you check my Twitter timeline from 3/18 to April 5, 2012, you're likely to see "@GetGlue" a lot. I'm pretty sure, anyway...

Right before my accidental hiatus, I discovered something awful: They took Scroogle away! I know this is old news by now, but I was so upset. Actually, I still am upset. Scroogle delivered Google's search results minus the Big Brother factor, among other things.
RIP Scroogle. You're deeply missed.

I haven't had the chance to use it extensively, but so far, DuckDuckGo has been my replacement search engine.

Time for me to shut the notebook. Tomorrow I'm going to try to get a good look at what I may have missed while away. The Twitter tools I use all indicate interactions have taken place, though I haven't actually looked at them yet.

Until then,

P.S. I should acknowledge that today is the 18th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's suicide (not to be confused with the discovery of his body that happened on the 8th.)
In a tweet that made my stomach turn, someone said, "Kurt Cobain died a Justin Bieber ago." Using those two names in the same sentence... Icky, just icky. I'll look for the actual tweet tomorrow so I can give credit to whomever made my skin crawl...

"We're Ganna Party Like It's 1999."

Party we did. Actually we still are [partying]. Too much Micheal Jackson at this point. Trying to decide our dinner fate.

Dear NaBloPoMo,

When I signed up for it, I was incredibly sincere about my desire to participate in this project. Sadly, the end of February 1 is fast approaching and I am in horrible shape. Worse, I can't even remember what I was thinking, and therefore nothing about said situation can be done.

Basically, not a-one of you can possibly get a coherent statement out of me by the time the day is done. It's almost midnight.*

I'll try again tomorrow.


*Or is it?
