Evidently while the actual shooting war was taking place at Westgate Mall in Nairobi, there was a simultaneous Twitter war. I saw some of the tweets from Kenya army and police. I didn't realize that the terrorists were firing back with tweets of their own. I suppose it's the new normal. It was only a couple of weeks ago or so that I read a speculation about whether or not Twitter would have been helpful during the 911 attacks. Assuming it could keep up with the feed, it certainly would have cut down on the missing persons scares...
We just saw Oblivion. Crikey, that was slow, stupid, and lame. I fell asleep and now feel remarkably refreshed, so there's that.
But DH is perhaps a tad miffed. He may suspect that my attention span of the moment is only fit for a three minute music video. But he would be wrong. I've already watched the Arcade Fire "Reflektor" and the David Lynch "Clown Crazy Time" videos several times, and they're like a whole seven minutes long. Each. So who has the short attention span now?
A person could truly become annoyed with iTunes. Yet again they fail to follow through with, well, anything really. The David Lynch video is supposedly in their catalogue but they gave me the "we don't know why the transaction failed" message when I tried to buy it. Probably because it's butchered, as it's several seconds shorter than the original, and maybe Lynch made them stop selling it.
While I'm on the topic of bitching about iTunes, I may as well add that they wouldn't sell the Miles Kane albums at all because...wait for it...I'm not in the UK. I fixed that one when I remembered Miles has his own website. And it does have a USA button so there.
Well, so does David Lynch have his own website and obviously he's an American to begin with but for some reason he doesn't have that music video for sale on it.
I just don't understand why iTunes thinks my tastes are particularly unusual. These are not rare and little known guys, ya know? I mean, David Lynch?
