Do something nice - even if nobody is watching [Sep. 11th, 2005|08:58 pm]
[Current Mood |If its not PMS I'm doomed]
[Current Music |shining over you]

I really dislike most uber-patriotic songs - in fact, it was during Desert Storm era - the 5 millionth time that I heard "My Baby is American made" ~ I vowed to never listen to Top 40 radio again
Nothing personal against the Oak Ridge Boys, they just played the song over & over & over & AHHHHHHHH!!!
~~~ I replaced Top 40 Radio with Ntl Public Radio ~~~ Then it was during 9/11/2001 era - the 5 millionth time I heard the word "terrorist" and "anthrax" I vowed to stop listening to NPR at work...

What to replace it with? I was just starting to get seriously interested in Japanese music & I hoped that passively hearing Japanese would help my language ability.. *hahahha-as if*

I found the message & images in this video extremely poignant, because this is a video done for Japanese audiences, living in Japan -

^-^ Thanks to lauraorganasolo for the 12Gatsu screencaps (In mangled order because I wasn't paying attn ^^;;)

One of my dearest friends in real life (and online) is a Newyorker and at the time of the attacks all I could think of was her.
Not too long before, we had been chilling in her room. You could see the twin towers from her room's window.
My family begged me to not fly to NY at that time, but I flew anyway...
In my life I've taken many planes, many times... but that one trip... I won't forget that easily. Not because of what could have happened to me, but because of what had already happened to the world as we knew it back then.

Hmmm... yeah, funny, I was hanging out on my sister's fire escape Saturday night, and I couldn't help but notice the two towers of light that had replaced twin towers (I guess they did that as an anniversary thing). You could see them shining in the sky throughout the whole city. It was nice.

This picture, btw, is not the twin towers... just so no one misinterprets it as that o_O;;;

News/media/radio sucks, though :\ They exaggerate so much, and make everything way too overly dramatic.

Among their magazines, I don't see that listed. They can special order a magazine if you have the 5 digit magazine code. >.< I couldn't find it on their site though - http://www.popteen.net/qa/index.html

Does her website say what other magazines she will be featured in? Just my 2 yen, I say you'd be better off buying a more 'artsy' mag - like R+R or CD Data, etc. Maybe it's just all the pink
