Blogger Will Tear Us Apart

Just a quick note: Blogger - which is the thing I use to write such amazing dribble - was majorly screwed for the last few days. Because of that, comments to the site from last week along with a surely destined-for-greatness post of mine got erased. This is the saddest thing ever because your comments are my crack. They may all just be from one person - possibly my father - who simply keeps posting with different usernames, but I'm still totally cool with that. That's how pathetic and needy my Internet-based ego is.

Anyway, I don't want anyone out there thinking that I'm the one erasing comments. You'd have to call me way fatter names before I did that.

Here's something that will make us all feel better - Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode doing a cover of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" (Side-note: The person who says "No way!" near the beginning sounds exactly like how I imagine all Californian men sound like. And low and behold, this concert was in Los Angeles, thus confirming that all of the presumptions I have about large groups of people are always right):

Special thanks to Matt for posting that clip on his Facebook! I've since watched it a billion times.

And one other good thing to mention! xoJane is now live! It's the online magazine / community by Jane Pratt, the Lady Fantastico behind my favourite teen thing ever - Sassy Magazine! That mag was like John Hughes meets Riot Grrrrl. It was probably one of the first non-condescending things I read that was targeted to a girl my age, even though I'm pretty sure I totally deserved a full serving of condescension. I was quite the ignorant bitch, after all.

I therefore have big hopes for xoJane and so should you! Now let's all waste the afternoon on it together!

I loved Sassy too! Thanks for the tip on xoJane!

OMG-I remember that Sassy cover! I may even have it upstairs in my closet, where I kept all my issues, and moved them around the countryside for the past 15 years. I loved that magazine. Sigh, nostalgia for adolescence creeping in....

I fucking LOVED Sassy, but was too broke to have an actual subscription so I stalked the school library's magazine rack on the first of the month. Then the librarian at Shithole High decided Sassy was "too out there" and dropped it. I'm not ashamed to say that I cried.

I never read Sassy, but I DID read the now-defunct Jane magazine. So glad Jane Pratt has a mag again!
