So, I have been wondering for awhile just how much my blog entertains others. I would like to think it does an adequate to excellent job at getting a giggle/chuckle/guffaw/insert other synonym for laughter here or there. The truth is, though, I don't even know how many people look at this thing! Also, nobody ever comments. Sad day. I have no idea where to take this blog next for a few reasons:

1) I don't know how many unique visitors I have. I don't really care what the number is. I just want to know what it is.
2)Nobody gives me feedback. Feedback is really important in cyberworld, but I would contest it is even MORE important in the blogosphere. In an effort to maintain some relevance, we bloggers need someone to encourage our efforts or tell us we suck. Right now, I'm thinking my product is blah. Just bland, stale and blah. Not a fun feeling for little me.
3) I don't know what type of original content I can actually come up with. I am a cyber packrat and I have internet ADD like nobody's business. This thing is different on a daily basis. I don't know if that's a narrow enough focus, in all honesty. (To me, it's not really a focus at all.)

At any rate, these are my challenges. I think I've gotta come up with a way to remedy #1 and #3, but you guys should be able to help me with #2. You can comment via the comments field on this blog OR any of the following:

PLEASE, please, please respond with suggestions or comments in general!

Currently chewing on: Creating my own website for my blog (so my readers don't have to submit to the whole Google thing just to comment on Blogger), focusing my blog on pop culture or social networking, renaming it to Cyber Packrat.

I'm White

Hokay, so, I have been noticing recently (and by recently, I mean the last 4 years of my life) how very white I am. WASP, actually. At any rate, there are a lot of white people in this country. Approximately 75% of the population is white. But I am whiter than many. A lot of white people identify with some sort of cultural history. Some white people are Jewish. Others are Irish. Many are German, Polish and even an Eastern European brand of white. Not me, though. I'm just... white. No strong cultural identifiers. No ancient messianic religions (besides Christianity, which actually isn't that ancient in comparison to Judaism. Plus, my family lineage isn't even speckled with Christianity. It's mostly just my immediate family). Just plain old WASP-y white. I'm okay with that for the most part except that now, I can't hold certain professions. Since I'm not black or Jewish or an alcoholic or addicted to drugs (What does that have to do with anything?), I can't be a comedian. I'm not rich (or Jewish), so I can't be a record producer. I'm not poor (or black) either, so I can't be a civil rights leader. Gosh darn. Since when did being white have so many limitations? I wonder what else I can think of that being white limits me from doing.

Murder Toilet

JFK and I were walking down Berkley tonight when we met some friendly folks who bedazzled us. In return, we gave them some vodka and watched their low-budge, high-class movie trailer for the upcoming feature film Murder Toilet. I find it perfect that among the search tags, the word "campy" was listed. This is better than the best classic horror film you've ever seen. Muchos love, neighbors. Please take a gander:

How perfect was that? Aren't you so pleased with yourself for watching it? I was.

So, now we know. This is what JT thinks of John Mayer:

Personally, I find this hilarious.
