Look, I'm famous!



I decided to drop a class before even going to it today. It was out of principle. I don't take 18 hours a semester... any semester. Even if some of my classes are Film or Italian classes, I'm just not in enough of a hurry to finish college that I want to take that many hours. So, I had a break around lunchtime. I ate some chicken and still had time, so I made my way one of the computer labs in the Social Science Building. I was checking some stuff when it popped in my head to check my hit counter. I noticed that already a few dozen people had checked my blog this morning (and my blog, as you can tell, is not very popular). I went to find out where they were coming from and found this:

I've never experienced anything like this before. It's fun.

In case you are confused as to what this is... A Freakwater fan from a Wilco forum stumbled across my blog and decided to share it with the rest of the forum. I registered (good thing I'm a fan of Wilco!) to add my two cents and over the course of the day, the thread has turned into one of the funniest things I've ever seen on the internet.

  1. i liked it as long as it revolved around our texting that night. i wanted to create my own account, but i would prefer to talk to these ppl in person...unless i was at a freakwater concert, in which case, i would text them and use up my non-unlimited texts

  2. but then again...it would mean bringing my cell phone into the concert instead of leaving it in the car so as not to forget to turn off the ringer (like anyone would have heard it)

  3. Haha it's funny to see people get so bent out of shape about it. I for one, saw the humor in it, and just finished a satisfyingly mean rant about idiot people. After reading bits and pieces of the forum...it confirms things. Seriously.

  4. False?! Hmmm. Well, I am a very strict critic. Maybe when I watch it again down the road, I'll rate it even higher!
