Theblook is on it's way!

We had three people apply for the designer position for the site formerly known as theblook. We'll have a new name and a real look very soon! Expect the first version to be out in the next month. Hopefully sooner, but we'll see.

Sweet Deal

So I just pwned a chem exam and my windows on my desktop computer jiggle when you move them. It's fun when things you work at (even if you don't work very hard, like chem2...) work like they're supposed to. It also helps when you don't have class until 3pm on a friday.


I broke 1000!

So I just checked on my adsense account and since this blog has been in exsistance, I have over 1000 hits now (1040 when I looked). So thanks to everyone who has come to read this or just come and didn't read it because you realized I'm not giving out valuable information usually, hehe. Keep it up and tell your friends or something, cause sadly 1040 hits only gets you like 17 cents. Or just store up all your valuable internet time to go crazy over my new site once it comes out and has a name. Then I'd be even more excited.

Kanye West "All falls down"

(feat. Syleena Johnson)

[Chorus - 2x]
Oh when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you ohh, it all falls down

[Verse - Kanye West]
Man I promise, she's so self conscious
She has no idea what she's doing in college
That major that she majored in don't make no money
But she won't drop out, her parents will look at her funny
Now, tell me that ain't insecurr
The concept of school seems so securr
Sophmore three yurr aint picked a carurr
She like fuck it, I'll just stay down hurr and do hair
Cause that's enough money to buy her a few pairs of new Airs
Cause her baby daddy don't really care
She's so precious with the peer pressure
Couldn't afford a car so she named her daughter Alexus (a Lexus)
She had hair so long that it looked like weave
Then she cut it all off now she look like Eve
And she be dealing with some issues that you can't believe
Single black female addicted to retail and well

[Chorus (w/ Kanye ad-libs)]

[Verse - Kanye West]
Man I promise, I'm so self conscious
That's why you always see me with at least one of my watches
Rollies and Pasha's done drove me crazy
I can't even pronounce nothing, pass that versace!
Then I spent 400 bucks on this
Just to be like nigger you ain't up on this!
And I can't even go to the grocery store
Without some ones that's clean and a shirt with a team
It seems we living the american dream
But the people highest up got the lowest self esteem
The prettiest people do the ugliest things
For the road to riches and diamond rings
We shine because they hate us, floss cause they degrade us
We trying to buy back our 40 acres
And for that paper, look how low we a'stoop
Even if you in a Benz, you still a nigga in a coop/coupe

[Chorus (w/ Kanye ad-libs)]

[Verse - Kanye West]
I say fuck the police, thats how I treat em
We buy our way out of jail, but we can't buy freedom
We'a buy a lot of clothes when we don't really need em
Things we buy to cover up what's inside
Cause they made us hate ourself and love they wealth
That's why shortys hollering "where the ballas' at?"
Drug dealer buy Jordans, crackhead buy crack
And a white man get paid off of all a dat
But I ain't even gon act holier than thou
Cause fuck it, I went to Jacob with 25 thou
Before I had a house and I'd do it again
Cause I wanna be on 106 and Park pushing a Benz
I wanna act ballerific like it's all terrific
I got a couple past due bills, I won't get specific
I got a problem with spending before I get it
We all self conscious I'm just the first to admit it

[Chorus - to fade (w/ Kanye ad-libs)]


"Drop Dead Gorgeous" -Kanye West

is a good song, if you pretend you didn't hear the drug references.
why is it that you can talk to someone any day of the week, but when you ask them to go see a movie with you it's suddently harder to say the same things you normally say?


We're back.

Met with my new partner this morning and got the project closer to being publicly available. He also happens to be a photographer, so we'll use some of his photography to get the site looking prettier and eliminate all the orignal artwork contributed by Mr. Sean King who is no longer working with us.

Some features include:
-rss feeds for each story and one general feed for the whole site's segments
-personal profiles with the option of displaying your email address and hopefully soon the option to upload a picture of yourself to see.


Good Lord

over 20 wireless networks can be seen from my dorm room when I put my lappy's airport card in passive mode and sniff for packets. this from a school that says you're not allowed to have wireless networks in the dorms. it's fun because they all use wep keys and/or mac addy filtering, and both are broken easily. :)


Yet again

I keep forgetting not to mention terribly nerdy things like being excited because the mouse you ordered should be in later today in front of girls that I might be interested in. They tend to laugh, heh.


My thoughts on the bomb:

had to write this for NHV, thought I'd put it up here too.

Shame on You

Until August, I was a myth. A child that no one thought would make it into the world.You, my parents could not help yourselves the night I was conceived. You, father, convinced her it would be for the best. “We could be the last two left on earth,” you said, “we’re only doing our duty as people tonight. And you look so beautiful.” But you, mother, needed no convincing that night in the cold, my soon-to-be father’s seed survived the negotiation with my mother and I was conceived.
Of course I didn’t know any of this at the time, I was merely a growing seed deep within my mother, but later you told me stories of your night of illegitimate union. I don’t blame you, people can be like that sometimes. Besides, you had me that night.
The part I do blame you for is my near abortion. How could you listen to other people? What did they know about you and your child? They claimed I would hurt you, hurt other people. You even almost listened to them. Almost stopped me from coming. Don’t you love me mommy? Are you ashamed of me daddy? You think you can just quit on my like everyone else does with their unborn? I’m not like their flesh-born. I am bigger, stronger. I will do more good than any one of those children who never got the chance to live and you almost denied me life?
For this I cannot forgive you. It hurts me to think you didn’t want me. Well I don’t want you either, I will find new parents. Parents who appreciate me and will let me learn and grow. You wouldn’t want that would you? I bet you would be upset if I went to the Russians, or even the Chinese. They would appreciate me at least.
I hate you. Why did I have to be born to parents who didn’t want me? You should have killed me when you could. Now I will make your life hell and make any future children you have suffer. They will fear me, the child you almost aborted.
