Giving It Up At Dorothy's Surrender

By VeroniqueChevalier, published on Sep 22, 2007

There is this little retail establishment in WeHo, on Santa Monica Blvd. just east of Crescent Heights, which has, at times, given me the sneaking suspicion that I might really be a drag queen trapped in a woman's body. (BTW, there is no truth to that MySpace rumor that I am a trannie, but it has made for a fun addition to the certain je ne sais quoi that is Veronique CheVALier, The "Weird VAL" of Cabaret, my performance persona). Anyway, the first time I walked into the gift emporium called Dorothy's Surrender, was to kill time whilst awaiting the first of many a futile blind, (or rather, Internet,... (more)

I Sing in the Shower. I could Probably Do It.

By Gary Schwind, published on Sep 6, 2007

...to life. I’d like to leave some sort of legacy, whether it’s some great tunes that people can listen to after I’m gone. Or just the memory of having met me and enjoyed a beer and a conversation with me. Around here, you meet so many people that are just focused on the wrong things. I like to think that I can see a little bit past those false idols and I’m living for something more than just the biggest TV on my block.

Candidates Finally Plug-In

By Chris Jones, published on Jul 16, 2007

...nation and the secret to capturing the youth vote that always pretends to be interested, but fails to show up on voting day is to become a part of their world. That doesn’t mean wearing a hat backwards and hanging with 50 Cent. That means getting your message out on iPods, cell phones, MySpace, YouTube, and the blogs. Believe it or not an 18 year old kid may think a video is funny and vote for that person based on that video alone while not actually knowing (or caring) what that person actually stand for. I’m certainly not suggesting that it’s appropriate or... (more)

No Privacy on the Net

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 12, 2007

...to be a representative of The Committee to Save Miss America. Regardless of who the scumbags are and whether or not Polumbo’s photographs violate the morality clause of the Miss America Pageant, Polumbo has learned a valuable lesson: nothing on the Internet is private. Sites such as MySpace and others provide a place for people to get together – virtually party rooms and share their crazy antics. Cell phone cameras and small digital cameras in general have made it impossible to “miss a shot” now. No more, “I wish I had a camera” moments. If you... (more)

The Bored Of Education

By Hunter Addams, published on Jul 2, 2007

...But who are these "real" people anyway? The masses? The everyday average D-Student who went nowhere and has no ambition to either? I don't think so. They're people with brains, thoughts and opinions. Not the under-achievers, because the thought of going online for any reason other than a MySpace hook-up and porn never enters their mind. Maybe thats where it comes from.. The mediocre students made it to the top because they were pretty enough to get on TV. With the help of the smart kids who became writers, editors and proofreaders, they had someone to cover-up their mistakes. Now the ... (more)

Not just Myspace, it's Everyone's Space

By C. Reagan, published on Jun 20, 2007

“Are you on Myspace?” has become the new “Can I have your number?” for legions of people from over the world. What started in November of 2003 as an innovative way to network, connect with old friends or meet new people has unquestionably had an colossal impact on it’s thousands of members and in turn, become a household name. I won’t bore you with specifics on how the site has become legendary with teens and twenty-some things. People log onto the site multiple times a day, altering their profiles, posting bulletins and searching for new friends while keeping tabs on their ever... (more)

Librescu Day

By Invisible African, published on Jun 16, 2007

...media, not satisfied with just obscuring the "who," "what" and "where" in its news coverage, goes to great lengths to avoid the "why" altogether. It may be just as well, then, that many kids come home from school in the afternoon only to get super glued to MTV, video games or websites like Myspace.com, since much of what's in the news would sooner confuse than educate them. Were that not sad enough, the education that does manage to seep into the minds of these would-be torchbearers of democracy is watered down to the point of irrelevancy. Not because teachers are stupid, evil or lazy... (more)

The Fire Worshippers

By Crowbar, published on Jun 3, 2007

...intestinal damage from pounds of undigested meat sitting in our body. Through our worship of fire, we travel in vehicles that worship fire, too. We travel to and fro, darting like busy bees off to do nothing really important other than get a grande latte and make sure no is looking for us on Myspace, all the while debating the truth about global warming, while the penguins surf on ice chunks in the latest Disney spectacular. We are fire worshippers, prone to live and die from the very element that we have turned into a God, prone to wipe out the very world we live in one fire at a time... (more)

Lessons to Learn in College

By Stephanie Michele, published on May 29, 2007

The following paragraph is posted on the University of Southern California’s website: “Special note to Employers: Recently the National Association of Colleges and Employers reported that a significant percentage of employers are using social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace to screen potential candidates. The USC Career Planning & Placement Center strongly discourages this process. As an employer participating in on-campus events, we expect you will provide a clear explanation of your selection process to potential candidates. If you consider the content of a Facebook or MySpace... (more)
