Today we feature some a band that sounds like a gun but doesn’t really sound like a gun. It is M83, and I think you will enjoy these sounds today while you work.

And you can sound really cool when people ask you what you have been listening to lately by just responding with M83, the band not the gun…or something like that.

Enjoy

The last time we did a Question(s) for You it was 3 months ago (found here). It has been a really long time since I have asked you some questions on this blog. Well I am happy to say that Question(s) for You is back and better then ever (TBD).

So you can answer them all or the ones you like. 

These are Question(s) for You:

1) SEC, BIG 10, BIG 12 or PAC 12? Which are you?

2) Would you rather the time spring forward or fall back?

3) Words with Friends or Hangin with Friends, which would you rather play?

I think we could all list out thousands of reasons why we love twitter.
I live where I live because of twitter.
I have the job I have because of twitter.
I have the friends I have because of twitter.
I date the girl I date because of twitter

You get the point.

But there is one side of twitter that we see everyday but don’t necessarily like to talk about. It is the side that allows us to see into others lives.

You might be wondering, isn’t that the point of twitter? Yes, it is, but to a certain limit. You see, 5 years ago I did not call up 80 of my closest friends and tell them that I got a new job. I didn’t call everyone in motorola razor address book and tell them who I was hanging out. My network was not at my fingertips. The only thing I could control was myself.

That changes things. It changes things because now a days you can be anyone you want through social media. You can give people access to your life, create a persona, or put the best you forward. Before, you couldn’t control what others saw. You had to have dignity, honor, respect and integrity. That wasn’t earned through a ReTweet and it wasn’t earned through having blog readers. It was simple earned by your actions.

Twitter is great, but when it turns into a broadcasting tool for yourself it turns bad.
