Shunning Facebook, and living to tell about it

Tyson Balcomb quit Facebook after a chance encounter on an elevator. He found himself standing next to a woman he had never met, yet through Facebook he knew what her older brother looked like, that she was from a tiny island off the coast of Washington and that she had recently visited the Space Needle in Seattle.

"I knew all these things about her, but I’d never even talked to her," said Mr. Balcomb, a pre-med student in Oregon who had some real-life friends in common with the woman. "At that point I thought, maybe this is a little unhealthy."

As Facebook prepares for a much-anticipated public offering, the company is eager to show off its momentum by building on its huge membership: more than 800 million active users around the world, Facebook says, and roughly 200 million in the United States, or two-thirds of the population.

But the company is running into a roadblock in this country. Some people, even on the younger end of the age spectrum, just refuse to participate, including people who have given it a try.

One of Facebook’s main selling points is that it builds closer ties among friends and colleagues. But some who steer clear of the site say it can have the opposite effect of making them feel more, not less, alienated.

"I wasn’t calling my friends anymore," said Ashleigh Elser, 24, who is in graduate school in Charlottesville, Va. "I was just seeing their pictures and updates and felt like that was really connecting to them."

To be sure, the Facebook-free life has its disadvantages in an era when people announce all kinds of major life milestones on the Web. Ms. Elser has missed engagements and pictures of new-born babies. But none of that hurt as much as the gap she said her Facebook account had created between her and her closest friends. So she shut it down.

Many of the holdouts mention concerns about privacy. Those who study social networking say this issue boils down to trust. Amanda Lenhart, who directs research on teenagers, children and families at the Pew Internet and American Life Project, said that people who use Facebook tend to have "a general sense of trust in others and trust in institutions." She added: "Some people make the decision not to use it because they are afraid of what might happen."

Ms. Lenhart noted that about 16 percent of Americans don’t have cellphones. "There will always be holdouts," she said.

Facebook executives say they don’t expect everyone in the country to sign up. Instead they are working on ways to keep current users on the site longer, which gives the company more chances to show them ads. And the company’s biggest growth is now in places like Asia and Latin America, where there might actually be people who have not yet heard of Facebook.

"Our goal is to offer people a meaningful, fun and free way to connect with their friends, and we hope that’s appealing to a broad audience," said Jonathan Thaw, a Facebook spokesman.

But the figures on growth in this country are stark. The number of Americans who visited Facebook grew 10 percent in the year that ended in October -- down from 56 percent growth over the previous year, according to comScore, which tracks Internet traffic.

Ray Valdes, an analyst at Gartner, said this slowdown was not a make-or-break issue ahead of the company’s public offering, which could come in the spring. What does matter, he said, is Facebook’s ability to keep its millions of current users entertained and coming back.

"They’re likely more worried about the novelty factor wearing off," Mr. Valdes said. "That’s a continual problem that they’re solving, and there are no permanent solutions."

Erika Gable, 29, who lives in Brooklyn and does public relations for restaurants, never understood the appeal of Facebook in the first place. She says the daily chatter that flows through the site " updates about bad hair days and pictures from dinner" is virtual clutter she doesn’t need in her life.

"If I want to see my fifth cousin’s second baby, I’ll call them," she said with a laugh.

Ms. Gable is not a Luddite. She has an iPhone and sometimes uses Twitter. But when it comes to creating a profile on the world’s biggest social network, her tolerance reaches its limits.

"I remember having MySpace for a bit and always feeling so weird about seeing other people’s stuff all the time," she said. "I’m not into it."

Will Brennan, a 26-year-old Brooklyn resident, said he had "heard too many horror stories" about the privacy pitfalls of Facebook. But he said friends are not always sympathetic to his anti-social-media stance.

"I get asked to sign up at least twice a month," said Mr. Brennan. "I get harangued for ruining their plans by not being on Facebook."

And whether there is haranguing involved or not, the rebels say their no-Facebook status tends to be a hot topic of conversation -- much as a decision not to own a television might have been in an earlier media era.

"People always raise an eyebrow," said Chris Munns, 29, who works as a systems administrator in New York. "But my life has gone on just fine without it. I’m not a shut-in. I have friends and quite an enjoyable life in Manhattan, so I can’t say it makes me feel like I’m missing out on life at all."

But the peer pressure is only going to increase. Susan Etlinger, an analyst at the Altimeter Group, said society was adopting new behaviors and expectations in response to the near-ubiquity of Facebook and other social networks.

"People may start to ask the question that, if you aren’t on social channels, why not? Are you hiding something?" she said. "The norms are shifting."

This kind of thinking cuts both ways for the Facebook holdouts. Mr. Munns said his dating life had benefited from his lack of an online dossier: "They haven’t had a chance to dig up your entire life on Facebook before you meet."

But Ms. Gable said such background checks were the one thing she needed Facebook for.

"If I have a crush on a guy, I’ll make my friends look him up for me," Ms. Gable said. "But that’s as far as it goes."
********

I'm lucky if I log on once a week to check my Facebook page, but considering how I have a crapload of "friends" on there that are mere acquaintances, it's kind of ridiculous. Also, I tend to get left out of goings-on at work because of it, leaving me to feel....well, alienated. I really try not to let it bother me (considering a lot of that Facebook stuff is between the younger workers), but I'm sorry. I don't live my life on a website, and if people really want to get a hold of me, they can call me. I do have a cellphone, after all. I'm definitely one of those people who feel more alienated by seeing everyone else's status updates and fun goings-on broadcast on there knowing that once again, I've been left out.


********
By the way, I'm sending out Christmas cards and I need addresses from [livejournal.com profile] wonkylibrarian (I don't know if I have a new address for you guys yet) and [livejournal.com profile] iamfiction. If anyone else wants a Christmas card and I may have no address yet, hit me up! (Just email it to me at hbh127@yahoo.com)

Oh, one more thing. Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! :D
hollybrooke: (THE POWER)
It looks like I have some new friends on here! Welcome! Nice to meet you, and thanks for adding me!
hollybrooke: (BUNNY LOVE)
Okay, so one of the main reasons why I went offline for the last couple of months was to prove a point. And that point is I DON'T WANT TO LIVE MY ENTIRE LIFE ONLINE. If you are all that interested in getting a hold of me, you should not have to wait for a status message on freaking Facebook of all places. If you want to get a hold of me, CALL ME. I do have a phone, you know.

I honestly feel like I have no REAL friends left anymore.



(BTW, Happy Easter for those of you who celebrate it.)
hollybrooke: (Jem and Pizzazz "Bitch please!")
And it's Facebook-related, too. And I found out about it about a month ago, but still....I've got to get this off of my chest.

Now, I knew Tina and Jacob were engaged for a long while. And that they were planning on getting married once she got her nursing certification and degree out of the way. Granted, I hadn't really spoken to Tina in a while, but she and I are still friends on Facebook.

So could someone please explain to me why I had to find out they finally got married through fucking FACEBOOK?!!!!

No announcement or anything! No invitation to a wedding! All I did was see "Davis" after her maiden name and I was all, "WTF?! They finally got married?! How come I feel like I'm the last to know?!" What a BITCH, I tell you. What kind of a friend is that? Really! I just.....URGH, this makes me more angry than it should. It's pretty sad that you have to find out that your friend got married through FACEBOOK.

I really need to get a hold of Justice and see if at least she was informed. I just.....AAAARGH.
hollybrooke: (Default)
To all of my new LJ friends who've I've added....welcome! Nice to meet you! :D
hollybrooke: (Default)
Okay, a proper update post (aka "the randomness of it all!"), which I haven't done in a while.

Saturday night was the Fester Memorial Show at the Art Theater, and I had to go, of course. And I don't know...I mean, I enjoyed myself, but not as much as I would've liked to have. I don't know if it's because of the lack of Fester, if it's just because I'm not used to the new-ish cast members with Help Me Mommy, or....if I'm truly over Rocky Horror. It's kind of sad. I feel like a big chapter of my life is drawing to a close.

But something eventful did happen Saturday night. It was the first time I had exchanged words with Zero since the blowout. And only because he was taking tickets that night.

I don't have Fester to defend me anymore in all of that, but frankly...I don't care. I've come to terms with it. I think I've finally reached the point of forgiveness to him and to be able to let it go. "To err is human, to forgive is divine."



LOL, see?! I'm sure Fester would've appreciated that humor in that!

*tangent* So I don't even know if I'm going with Dish Network. Mainly because when they called up to verify my information and to schedule an installation date, they mentioned something about a $125 installation fee. I flat-out told the guy, "Uh-uh! That wasn't included when I saw my final order on the website! The final bill said the $99 installation fee would be waived as part of the promo."

I really don't know if Dish will be worth the hassle of getting signed up. If it'll be like that, I'll just continue making the payments for DirecTV as it is. Even if $60 a month is kind of high for a loyal customer since 2004. I can afford it. I'll be scrimping and saving, but I can afford it.

*tangent* I've been working nine straight days. Today's my one day off this week. I can't complain too much, considering the last few days I've been pulling expired pasta sauces and pastas from the shelves when business gets slow. Yeah, it seems like I'd be bored to death doing that, but for one thing, it gets me away from the register (and keeps me from going stir-crazy). For another thing, I'm just anal-retentive enough to focus on something like that. And for another thing, at least it gets me more out in the store to help customers find stuff that they can't locate. See? I do like to help people! Just not at the register! Ha-ha!

But to the cranky lady yesterday who was annoyed that we had no more corned beef left? Uhm, you honestly thought we'd have some available when you come in on St. Patrick's Day at 6 PM? People in St. John/Cedar Lake/Lowell LOVE their corned beef, lady. You should've been here the day that sale started.

*semi-tangent* Yesterday, I ran into Mrs. Cole, one of my old kindergarten teachers, while I was at work. Man, she was a little old lady when I was in kindergarten; I can't imagine how old she is now! But she's still active, and it always tickles me that she remembered me before I remembered her. :)

*tangent* Later on today, I went out to crush some aluminum pop cans in the garage. I cut up my right middle finger pretty badly on a flimsy aluminum can, for crying out loud. (Those things are deceptively sharp!) It was bleeding pretty badly, so I had to run from the garage with my right hand held above my head, middle finger up in the air for everyone to see, into the house to fix it up. The Band-Aids I have are these dinky little ones that would barely stick without bandage tape, and I still made a bloody mess out of it. So I had to run back up to Walgreens for the bandages you can put over your fingertip.

I have no idea how long I'll have to keep it bandaged up till it's healed. I'm going to change it before I go to bed tonight, though. But like the subject line says, it's HARD to type with a bandaged-up finger!

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] raven_rising!


And belated birthday wishes to Dan, even though he doesn't read this (anymore). His birthday and his dad's and his brother's all fell within a day or two of each other's, and I forgot which one his fell on. And now I feel bad because I should've called him or something. (I could probably send him an e-card...)
hollybrooke: (Domo-Kun!)
Today is [livejournal.com profile] iamfiction's birthday. Happy birthday, Nichole!
hollybrooke: (Like a Virgin)
The two guaranteed words that can get me out to see "Help Me Mommy!"/Rocky Horror at the Art?

80s Night.

SOOOO much fun. I got, like, totally dressed up to the max, man. Crimped my hair and everything. I wish I had a picture.

Dance party. Dance, dance, dance! I discovered that Kevin is not really big on dancing, but I have to give him an A for effort.

Karly was there! Excellent! Then the even BIGGER surprise....SHAWN was there! It was like a Pink Invaders' homecoming of sorts! (Kevin told me Wally was there last week, and I was PISSED that I missed it!)

Didn't get home until 3:30 AM-ish. Had to be at work by 10 AM today. Still really exhausted. I feel it all over in my body. My head, my back, my feet, my legs....Alicia let me go home a little early, which was good. :) (See? She's not ALWAYS a meanie.)



I am setting a date for my "thing": end of April, the 25th. Codename "Ride the Bride." Planning on losing 25 pounds by April 25th so I look good.

*tangent* Today is Christina's birthday. Next week is Justice's. I reeeeeeally need to get a hold of both of them and catch up. I hate being out of touch with friends.


*tangent* And I just felt the need to post this:



I need to see this movie again. I bought the actual graphic novel and I'm totally engrossed in it.
hollybrooke: (pooh hungry)
To all the new (and new-ish) peeps that are new friends....welcome, and thanks for reading!



I got locked out of my own bathroom this morning, can you believe it?! It locks from the inside, and I guess the locking mechanism got messed up. The door's hinges are on the inside of the bathroom, so I wasn't able to just take the door off the hinges. And I don't really have a window in the bathroom, so it's not like I'm able to just go outside and crawl in through the window to fix it. (I do have a skylight, though...) So I had to pry some of the trim around the doorway and jam a flat-head screwdriver inside to push the lock back. It took a while to do, but I got in, and I was able to get a shower and pee and brush my teeth.

I have taken the doorknob off the door as a precaution, and now I'll have to pick up a new (working) one from the local hardware store to make sure this doesn't happen again!

hollybrooke: (Frank didn't make Rocky for Janet)
First of all...in the Rocky Horror spirit, and because Fester had it on his blog, I'm helping spread the word about the remake. If you hate the idea of a Rocky Horror remake as much as I do, sign the petition:

Stop The Rocky Horror Remake!



Second of all...okay, this is probably going to sound very immature. It hurts when you have a rift/falling out with someone who used to be your friend, and friends that you shared before take their side. I know I said that Top 8 positions don't really matter with me; hell, I don't care where I am on someone's list, but sometimes, MySpace choices say a lot. I don't know why I even bother with MySpace; it's just so juvenile and immature. This is just another reason why I chose not to rejoin cast.

And as I'm typing this out right now...yeah, I realize how immature I'm sounding, but IT STILL HURTS!! It hurts because I really did enjoy being in cast, and this whole ordeal just ruined it for me. All it would take to end this is a simple apology from him, face to face, but he more than likely doesn't think he did anything wrong. I hate when people can't admit that they might have screwed up or wronged someone (like Mom, for example) and just can't apologize.

Kevin has been to the first few shows for "Help Me Mommy", and you know, that's fine with me (as long as certain individuals don't start bad-mouthing me because "Oh, Holly's lost her spirit, she's blowing us off, we're not good enough for her anymore," blah blah blah. I cam imagine all the smack that's being said about me in my absence. I'm a paranoid bitch like that.) Kevin's got friends that he's still on good terms with in the new-ish cast, especially Fester. And I know he's telling me all of the fun stuff that happens to try to get me to at least come out to a show and have fun like I did before. But I told him it's going to be a while before I cave and just decide to go. It wasn't so bad to go see Midnight Madness a few months ago, but this is different because there are friends of mine in the new-ish cast and probably think I just need to get over it, and yeah, I know I do, but it's HARD. It's just hard for me to let go of a grudge...especially when they gave you the shaft for an ex-girlfriend not once, but twice, and called you a "fucking psycho bitch" in the end.
hollybrooke: (truly outrageous)
"Tequila and Salt"

This should probably be taped to your bathroom mirror where one could read it everyday. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.

1 . There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3 . The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4 . A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
5 . Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6 . You mean the world to someone.
7. You are special and unique.
8 Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look.
11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.

So...........If you are a loving friend, send this to everyone, including the one that sent it to you. If you get it back, then they really do love you.

And always remember....when life hands you lemons, ask for tequila and salt, and call me over!
hollybrooke: (Bret Michaels!)
So Monday, I went up to the Dunes with Paul, Hillary, Michael and Cookie. We stuck around on the beach for about an hour and played with their dog in the water. And I've been thinking that I might take Bo up to the Dunes on Friday if no one wants to go see The Simpsons Movie with me, since Friday's my one REAL day off. Afterwards, we hung around the house, played some Wii and ate some pizza (and I threw off my diet...whoopie) while some other friends of Paul and Hillary's came around to hang out. I had never met them before, and Cookie assumed I knew them from high school. I think she forgot that I know Paul, Michael and Hillary through Dan.

I asked them if they've heard much from Dan lately, and Paul really hasn't heard much from him, either. (So it's not just me, I guess.) I know times have been rough on Dan and Becky since they had to move back in with his parents, and he hasn't been to the last few PPVs. (Well, I wasn't at the last couple, mainly due to the money situation.) I asked if they had heard from Brandon as well, and I guess not. Paul complained that he doesn't see Brandon online anymore since Monica had that baby, and who knows if Brandon is even that baby's daddy?

Let's face it. According to the gang, Monica is a psycho bitch who is playing Brandon for a major chump, which sucks. Besides, Cookie really didn't want Monica around the house if Brandon was going to bring her with. And it didn't matter because he had no gas money to drop on by. And maybe it's just as well because I know how Brandon feels about me (he's another one of those guys who has an unrequited crush on me), and unfortunately, those feelings aren't reciprocated. I like him okay as a friend and nothing more. He needs to really get his shit together for me to consider him as anything more than a friend. (Sorry if that sounds really blunt, but I'm a picky bitch, and that's how the meatball bounces.)



*tangent* Today, I work a 12:30 to 8:30 shift. Whee, fun.

*tangent* HOLY SHIT, guess who sent me a friend invite on MySpace?! *points to LJ icon* THE HOTNESS!!!!!

I am soooooo kicking my own ass for not auditioning for "Rock of Love."
hollybrooke: (bret seems like a nice boy)
I'm worn out. I've worked the midnight shift at Strack's for the last three nights. I can handle a fourth one, I suppose. It's starting to take its toll on me, though.

As of tomorrow, Mom and Dad are taking a trip down to good ol' Alabama to visit Grandma Cozie. Mom bitched and complained about it, and she really doesn't want to go. (Too bad!) But the only motivating factor for her to go is to visit with Uncle Glen (who I guess isn't doing too well) and Aunt Roberta. And in agreement with Mom, that's the only thing I'll miss about not going with. I just flat out refuse to go down to visit Cosette anymore. It's obvious she doesn't give a shit about me, and I'm tired of going down to visit and hear her grieving over J.R. After all the crap at Aunt Ruth's funeral last year, I'm done with her. (My excuse for Dad was that I just started work, and it wouldn't be a good idea for me to take time off NOW.)

So...it's just going to be me and Hunter (and Bo) to ourselves for the week. Good. A week without Mom. She's driving us CRAZY! I was contemplating dropping down to Bloomington to visit Justice this week, but I can't spare the time in between work and orientation for Purdue Cal.

Paul and Hillary are in the area, and I need to call Paul sometime today to see about hanging out with them and the gang tomorrow, since tomorrow's a free day. I may have to see if Gramma Julie can puppy-sit Bo, while I'm at it. And I really, really want to. I want to see how far along Hillary is with her pregnancy and I want to rub her belly. *awwww*

As of today, I weigh 148 lbs. I dropped five pounds last week. Let's see how much I drop this week if I keep up with the diet and exercise. So far, I'm doing well.

Next week, Jani Lane from Warrant is doing a show down in Demotte. I'm thinking I might go check it out. I want to see if he stayed on track after Celeb Fit Club.
hollybrooke: (hobbes' glee)
I have written a paper for my Shakespeare class, and I've given it one of the stupidest/most clever titles I could think of:

"Hamlet Fails At Life."

Because seriously? He did. If he had just turned the other cheek, not listened to what his dad's ghost told him to do, and let Claudius be, karma would've eventually bit Claudius in the ass. In the end, because Hamlet was so hell-bent on revenge on Claudius, everyone frickin' died. And it didn't matter because it still wouldn't bring back Hamlet's father.

Hamlet was an emo bitch, and revenge is just a waste of time. And he fails at life.

We start up King Lear today. (YEAH!)

In other news, I STILL hate work. Yesterday was Jessica's last day. :( But one of the most unexpected people came in to sign up for a membership yesterday.

MISSY!!!!!!!

I hadn't talked to her since we graduated high school! It wasn't like we quit talking to each other; we just fell out of touch. So we exchanged numbers and all and caught up for a little bit. It was good seeing her again. :)
hollybrooke: (dentist my ass hermey reads porn!)
I was looking through some old LJ entried from 2003 till now, concerning all of the problems I had way back then. And it occured to me that some of the people who really stuck by my side through the last two years I don't give enough credit.

Yeah, mainly to Boojie. Thanks for the kind words and patience, man. *big hugs*

Also...and it's weird for me to admit to it, but especially after reading all of those posts, it has occured to me that my bustup with Zero was a long time coming, and had been building up for a while. I probably should've ended my friendship with him ages ago before letting it build up and get as bad as it did. I let him use me, I fell victim to his mindgames, and worst of all, I encouraged his behavior. I don't know how I fooled myself into thinking he was such a good friend when in reality, he really wasn't. I'm not blaming this all on him, but I can't believe I was just such a fool to keep denying it for as long as I did.

If he wants to keep continuing to blame me for pushing him away and all of that shit, let him. Maybe I did push him away, but I got tired of him treating me like crap. I don't regret one damn bit of it. I should've learned my lesson sooner.

Whatever. It'll all come to bite him in the ass someday.

Did I learn anything from all of this? Yes, I did. But it's in the form of a longer, more detailed response that I need to really think about.

a reprive!

I just walked four stories up to my professional writing class in Hawthorn Hall to find out that class is cancelled this week. Why--I have no clue. Maybe Prof. Baig wants us to get a jumpstart on our final projects?

I'm just pissed that I had to walk four flights of stairs--in heels--to find this out. *lol* Oh well.

I have to get started on final projects for three of my four classes. In my philosophy class, I'm supposed to write a paper on one of the topics we discussed in class and support my stance on it. Earlier today (after class ended), one of my classmates and I were discussing what we were going to do for our papers. She plans on doing hers on euthanasia, and I told her I was probably doing mine on the connection between body and soul (defining a human being, what we discussed in the last week), and the conversation just drifted to what motivated us for our choices. A lot of my motivation is stemming from seeing what my mom has to deal with on a day-to-day basis with her MS, and how she's never going to get better and how it affects her mentally. It was just weird...I was able to bond with someone I barely knew, someone I just sit next to everyday in that class and randomly chit-chat with. I guess that's part of the friend-making process. :)

For my professional writing class, our professor's giving us one of three options. We can either do a formal report with empirical research, we can do a position paper, or we can do a grant proposal. I'm probably going to do a position paper on why we should do away with the "No Student Left Behind" act.

And for that stupid stupid political science class, I have to do a book report on this boring book that I chose to read. Ugh. I hate that class. Tomorrow, I have that midterm for my earth science lab, and in two weeks I have my midterm for the lecture portion of the class. So I have my work cut out for me.
hollybrooke: (cunt)
...with tomorrow being the last night the Crossroads is going to be open, and the last night for Rocky Horror in Northwest Indiana.

Was watching "Attack of the Show!" this morning on G4. According to the ticker across the screen, 20th Century Fox wants to go ahead with plans to remake The Rocky Horror Picture Show. AND they've already approached Marilyn Manson to play Frank.

Not happy at all with this. There should be no reason to remake a movie that audiences are still going to see at midnight on weekends.

....Tomorrow's the last show. Very mixed feelings about it. For one thing, Shawn's pretty much put himself in the financial hole just so the Northwest Indiana area can have their Rocky Horror experience, and only a truly dedicated person would do that. And Fester's right. If I had never been involved in cast the way I've been, I would've never met the people and friends that matter to me, like Tim and Fester and Boojie and Sammi and Brian and P-Christina. I wouldn't have been able to take that trip to New York and experience more that life has to offer. I would have just been Miss Bubble Girl (that I've turned myself into for the last few months with school and all) with virtually no friends. I think the most important lesson I've learned from the whole experience is that trusting people and opening yourself up to others is the biggest risk you can take.

Having said a lot of this stuff, I don't regret ever having been involved.
hollybrooke: (minx over jem?  WTF?)
My feelings/thoughts on the "Flavor of Love" season finale:

I never cared for New York one bit. In my opinion, she's fugly, she has a rotten self-absorbed personality that just grated on other people's nerves, she's a gold-digging attention whore, and she comes off as an obsessed Flava Flav groupie. But I don't blame her for her smackdown of Flav in the end when he didn't choose her.

But really, why did Flav bring her back into the competition? And did she really buy into it one bit? She should have listened to her mother, to be honest. Flav didn't choose her last time; did she really think she was going to get chosen in the end the second time around? She honestly thought he was going to choose her, and I guess you have to have that blind hope. I think Flav kept New York around because she put out for him; you'd have to for that sort of fame and recognition.

I never undertstood Flav's logic one damn bit on the show. He's just looking for a girl he could kick it with...but he eliminated Goldie last season, who honestly wasn't looking for anything serious. (Just like Flav!) And that pissed me off.

The way Flava Flav treated New York reminded me of someone else. *Heh.* And Flav deserved to be told off like that. YEEEEEAH BOYYYEEEEEE!!!
