No More LimeWire….Finally

17 Apr

LimeWire, a free peer-to-peer file sharing client program, is finally shut down. After years of illegal downloads by millions of people, and profit loss the government on October 26, 2010, has finally grew some balls and stopped it all together thanks to Judge Kimba Wood. Yes, I was guilty of downloading illegal music on to my computer, and yes it was very easy and very CHEAP, but I also have my favorite bands who I love to contribute and make them money by buying their albums and merchandise. In a way it is very annoying to have to buy every song you want off of iTunes , but I like it now because now all the bands and singers that you all love are making money for the music we love to hear because it magically makes you feel much better.

Now that LimWire is gone, the government needs to shut down all the sites that have just took LimWires position. Examples are Frostwire, Bearshare, music frost, and music oasis.

My Guest Blogger!

17 Apr

I really liked a lot of Nicole Long’s blogs so I am making her my guest blogger. Here is my favorite blog of hers, What makes them viral?! 

Viral videos pop up all over the place, from all different places, people, and scenarios.

They become viral so quickly because they are interesting and eye catching. They can be funny (most are), they can be cute, have pets or babies in them.

How it happens is once someone see’s a video they think is funny or cute and is good enough to watch again or show someone, they show a friend. And then that person shows another friend, and that person another. It goes on and on, and in a short period of time, until it is a viral video in like a week.

My favorite viral is “The Bed Intruder”. It is a video that was originally on the news. It was a guy who was talking to the camera crew in concern of his sister who was almost raped when she woke up to find a stranger in her room. It is a serious story, but luckily her brother heard her scream and came in there to scare the intruder out. The intruder left finger prints. Just watch…..

I love this “remix” because its hilarious how the brother is acting and it is very catchy. It made me want to watch the video over and over again. I also wanted to show every and anybody who was on or near a computer.

Another viral video that I like is “Charlie Bit Me”. It is a video that just shows two little kids, who are obviously brothers, sitting in a chair and the little brother keeps bitting the older brother. It is so cute.

 I wanted to show everyone this video because of how adorable it is. All of my girl friends liked it and even guys. :)
