I am the least technologically intuitive person I know. I'm pretty sure I've inherited this trait from my elderly, immigrant mother who still orders me to "pick-em up the phone" when leaving a voice mail, and (I'm almost certain) believes the internet is some kind of door you can knock on to find my brother when he's not answering his phone ("my neighbor having internet, he find him").
Despite the fact that it takes every ounce of capability just to get this blog working, I have noticed a few favorable trends in the area of technology. Here I present to you, The Greatest (recent) Advancements In Technology, according to me.
More specifically, reality television. What I'm trying to say is, Hell's Kitchen. From the cliffhangers just before the commercial breaks (AGHHHHHH!!!!!!!) to the "what do you think Ramsey's gonna be wearing at service tonight?" buzz all over the internet (?), everything about this show makes it the most intense 45 minutes of my life, every week (<--- I'm just gonna go ahead and call bullshit on this statement right now as we all know I'm not tuning in to any shows each week, but rather watching 6 episodes in a row at midnight until I've completed the entire series in 4, determined days). I think if I could "up" the intensity factor in one area of the show however, it would have to be in the kitchen when everyone is cooking. He seems kind of pissy sometimes but come on Ramsey, this is reality television! You're competing with the likes of the YouTube exclusive, KTown for fucks sake; for the most part it's Snoresville up in that kitchen! Basically, I need to see Gordon Ramsey pour soupy risotto into an envelope and mail that shit to another time zone ("GET OUT!!") or I'm just going to have to assume that he's only slightly irritated.
More specifically, KTOWN!!!!!!! Oh my GGGGGod, I cannot even express with words how much I fucking love this fucking show. It's like Jersey Shore...with Asians! That's actually a tagline for the show, "like Jersey Shore, with Asians." Ahhh, I don't even know where to start. OK, it's about a group of sexy Korean friends and their sexy antics, all of which take place in LA's Koreatown. There's the slutty one, the badass (me), the sweet one, the funny one (also me), and then a bunch of other dudes that I can't remember because they all just look like Bruce Lee anyway, am I right guys? (I am now stomping around the room pulling my eyes into (slantier) slants and talking in bucktooth voice)
This trailer really does not even do the show justice, it is SO much better when you actually watch all 20 episodes in a row, trust me.
And I know a lot of people think I'm making fun of the show when I tell them about it but I swear on my dead Korean grandparents ashes or whatever happened to them that I LOVE THIS SHOW!
3. Sad-face emoticon :(
Sad-face emoticon immediately adds adorability points to any text message, no matter what the content. It can turn a statement like:
I have diarrhea and it got in my hair.
I have diarrhea and it got in my hair :(
(.....d'awwww, youuu! I can identify with this statement, and I empathize with you.)
Pics of dogs being cute, cats being cute, funny signs, and penis graffiti! I'm just excited to have one more thing to direct my attention to and become unhealthily obsessed with, I'm always looking for more of that stuff. I will inevitably hit one of my self-conscious "I've exposed too much of myself, I can't believe I commented on that way more funny and talented writer's photo and expected a response, I'm deleting all my social networks and fucking hiding in my apartment forever, fuck the internet I'll just put out zines, yes that's the ticket, ZINES!!!" moods, and not upload a pic for a whole 2 days but until then, follow me here @thankyourodserling!!

It's a ton of frozen yogurt and toppings.
.....I feel like I really lost steam on this one.
I'm actually just really excited to post this right now because I just want everyone to watch KTown.
