I got a bit distracted today. I got a Flickr account (I already have a photobucket one) and have mostly been playing around with it today. I might have to post some new photos up here, but idunno. I'm keeping photobucket around for pics from my cell-phone and maybe some over-flow if I post too much to Flickr. Anybody have thoughts on how the two sites compare? Generally, I've heard photobucket is better for doing things quick and dirty where Flickr is 'more professional'.

On a similar note... Does anybody here use Twitter? I don't understand the appeal. It seems to me to be a way for people with ADD to annoy their friends over a distance mixed with a forum for celebrities to make announcements. Neither of these really appeal to me, but I've never used Twitter. Am I missing something?

Finally, the week in review would've been up an hour or so ago, but I got distracted listening to music. I notice that most people here seem to like 70s/80s rock. Is that true?

I have really eclectic taste. Today, I've been listening to rap mostly. Some old school(-ish), namely Big L (Put it on and Da Graveyard), and some new(-ish) rap, namely Dizzee Rascal (love those grimy beats, like I Luv U.

Yesterday, I was listening to Garbage all day. I miss the 90s. They had much better music. When the fuck are they going to come back. The 80s came back a little before the millennium. But where are the all 90s stations.

This has nothing to do with anything, but you never need an excuse for the Buzzcocks. Any punk fans on here?

I've never used Flickr. Just Photobucket. Don't use Twitter either and don't plan on it...sounds pretty gay to me. If you are into music, check out LastFM. I'm holly75 on there

oops... I done fucked up. If you're seeing this, could you post a quick blog.... Maybe "What was your worst sexual experience" or even just a "Wanna fuck?" I promise I'll say "yes" if you do. I just need a buffer so I can toss the week review up. Thx.

Hi: I use flickr exclusively for many reasons. I like the way you can organize in collections, set or not. There are millions of people ranging from professional to family shutterbugs. Most of the pros will offer tips/techniques... they've helped me improve quickly. The Creative Commons is a great place to find royalty free images for various purposes as well as for blogs and historical imagery. There's also the ability to blog as well. Also like the "explore" area and all of the different groups you can join.

I haven't used photobucket, but I'll check it out. Sometimes we find we prefer one site to another just because it's the first one we use. It doesn't matter as long as it meets your needs.

Twitter is used by all kinds of people. It's another social networking tool that helps build relationships with like minded people or just keep in quick touch with family and friends. There are junkies just like here... it's something to do! It's a younger, sleeker version of Facebook, Linkedin, etc.

Thanks for the info. I guess what I really wonder about Twitter is, how long are the Tweets? Is it usually like one random sentence (like facebook status updates) or is there enough room so that people could get a full thought out?
