Just another manic Monday…

18 Sep

Well, it’s Monday. It’s raining. And a lot of stuff has happened in the world of social media this past week, so it’s time for a MONDAY MID-DAY MASH-UP. A complete mash-up of this weeks past events (well, at least the ones I care about).

First up on my list: The iphone 5 was released.. and subsequently not bought by me. Congrats to Apple for making another version of an already expensive device and placing an even larger price tag on the new one. The only justification I can make for this frivolous release is that I may now be able to afford the iphone 4S (wishful thinking).

It’s official. PSY’s release of the song “Gangam Style” has officially gotten on my last nerve. Aside from completely blowing up YouTube, he performed at the VMA’s, Saturday Night Live, and The Today Show. Seriously???? Aside from not knowing the lyrics other than the token “oppan gangam style” (not even sure if that’s what he says), the whole song is just down right annoying. And here I am giving recognition to it… It’s a vicious cycle.

Another thing that really ANNOYS me: the NHL Lockout. I’m not saying that this is the worst thing to happen to me since McAllister’s closed on the strip, but hockey is the only sport I actually like… and this kind of sucks. I don’t even think this will be like the NBA lockout, either. I think this one will be for the whole year, just like in 2004…. I hate football.

Speaking of football… The much anticipated Gator loss ended up leaving many Vol fans eating their words, and perhaps losing a lot of bets. The Gator’s chomped us in the second half, making it the 7th year in a row that they have crushed Volunteer spirits, hopes, and dreams. So naturally, I have been seeing a lot of blame on Dooley. If it were up to Knoxville, the Vols would have a rotating coaching staff that would switch every time we lose. As I stated earlier though, I hate football, so my opinion on the matter is invalid.

In other news, today was my first day of my internship with the Knoxville Ice Bears (at least the SPHL has it together). I got to freshen up on my InDesign skills and made flyers for the upcoming season. I am told that I will also be able to help out with their social media campaign, which just works perfectly with the class I am having to write this blog for (490 Social Media). It’s all coming full circle!

Oh, and for those of you keeping track, my Klout score is now a 26. I need to set a higher goal for myself… Eh, maybe next week. Until next time!

Here is a HILARIOUS skit of Seth McFarlane’s impression of Ryan Lochte… Couldn’t upload the real video due to copyright infringement, but you need to click the link.
