Lover’s Requiem, the debut album of California sextet I Am Ghost has been described as, “A rock opera for goth kids,” by frontman Steve Juliano. While lacking spoken dialogue and an apparently coherent story, Lover’s Requiem is a concept album that fits Juliano’s description quite accurately.
Back in June, Martin posted an excellent article on learning languages that covered most of the bases for getting started on the path to fluency. I’d definitely recommend reading through it if you’re interested in learning a new language, or want to improve one you’re currently learning. Once you’ve gotten those down, it’s time to actually start conversing with people. While there are plenty of apps and websites out there that are specifically dedicated to helping you do this, I’d like to offer up Omegle as a valid option for learning languages as well. Read More →
When’s the last time you heard one of your friends freaking out because they “like, totally blanked, man” on a term paper? Maybe you yourself have forgotten to do important things in the past, only to spend the next few days in a depressed state of utter despondency… Read More →

First off: Happy Thanksgiving! Hopefully you’re chilling with your family right now and catching up. Maybe you’re horrifying them with your newfound political expertise and presenting your obvious solution for fixing all the world’s problems that you came up with while napping in Political Science 101. Either way, I hope you’re enjoying the break. Read More →
Desktop clients and mobile apps make up a large percentage of the avenues that people use to access Twitter, but the actual Twitter website is still a fine way to use the service. Even though I love HootSuite to death, there are times that I just like to use the actual website.
Congress is currently debating a bill that could potentially destroy the internet as we know it.
The Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) is a bill that is allegedly aimed at preventing non-legit sites from streaming copyrighted material. However, the bill is problematic and could give rise to a wave of censorship similar to how China does things. I don’t know about you, but I’m not willing to let this happen. Read More →
