Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water.
Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup;
You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle;
You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot.
Now water can flow or it can crash.
Be water, my friend.
Here’s a video I stumbed upon today about the Protect IP Act which just opens up all these questions about the internet and censorship.
PROTECT-IP is the latest piece of legislation aiming to chip away at your online rights in the name of protecting the entertainment industry’s business model. They tried to ban the VCR and the 1st mp3 players. Now they want to break the internet. This is what the Protect IP Act is.
What do you think of this legislation?
I have been playing this song on repeat for the last couple of weeks – besides the fact it’s on the Twilight Soundtrack (barf) I just love it.
I love it because it is one of those songs you can just sing like you’re about to cry. I’d recommend this song for a long drive by the countryside alone so noone can see your facials when you sing it out loud when you’re driving. (Not that I actually do that *shifty eyes*).
Anyways I purchased the song on ITunes a few weeks back and I was anticipating what the music video would be like. Since it dropped today I wanted to share it on my blog as it is hot and fresh out the kitchen!
So here’s my video of the week by Hawaiian born Filipino singer, song writer and record producer Bruno Mars.
Enjoy and have a great weekend – perhaps a drive by the countryside isn’t too bad a suggestion after all.
Check out this awesome video created by The Gag Quartet which has 40 memes in one song.
I can’t even count all 40, can you?
What is a meme?
According to the Urban Dictionary it is:
1 : an idea, belief or belief system, or pattern of behavior that spreads throughout a culture either vertically by cultural inheritance (as by parents to children) or horizontally by cultural acquisition (as by peers, information media, and entertainment media)
If you want to know more about memes check out one of my favourite sites called Know Your Meme -a website dedicated to documenting Internet phenomena: viral videos, image macros, catchphrases, web celebs and more.
