I have to say back in the day, i was quite good at bumping into untapped resources and having links upon links upon links of crap to dig through. Lately? I've been stuck on checking other peoples blogs, emails, messages on myspace & facebook, and reading every piece of gaming news i can pretaining to the nintendo wii. But it only makes it oh so sweet, when i rub against a fresh new piece of internets!
Today while browsing CGtalk (a website i view daily) I bumped into a post, which bumped into another thread, which bumped into a website, which bumped me into like 5 more. I can't say how excited i was as i clicked away and brought up images that i was inspired by! Like the DJ digging in boxes in a small-hole-in-the-wall music store and finding that one piece of vinyl to take the perfect sample, I found some gems, and i am proud of them! Why would i even take this long breathed, long typed, stupid explanation of these things? Because my friends, i think we sometimes forget the internets is more then porn, news, and porn. It is a place where one can go about themselves randomly and make art, document art, and create art. Then people will link, blog, write about it, not care about it, and it will die eventually.
Everything on the internets is like us. It is born, it passes away, it is remembered, it is forgotten, and it is left only alive by all the people who found it and kept it. Whether you downloaded the images to your computer, or google caches the page, or web-archive created a backup of that website. But somewhere, someday.... a server will go away, people will pass away, files will be deleted, hosting will go away, domains will not renew, or whatever cause it may have, and that file will no longer exist...
how does that make you feel?
i wanted to be like a true blogger and link for no reason at all... its what they do!! i promise!
i never knew i had problems with comments, are they fixed now?
i thought i should give background to my title:
