Yes, Smutty has been #Eastwooding. Smutty is ashamed to admit it, but after reading the Huffington Post, he had to jump into the #Eastwooding fray.
Eastwooding is not just a momentary fad, Smutty declares that Eastwooding will become a lifestyle choice. Seniors of the world rejoice, your moment to shine has been delivered by Dirty Harry himself.
The sheer volume of Facebook and Twitter communications ensures that this trend will be with us for a long time to come. Every time you see an empty chair, you will smile fondly in remembrance of this shared American experience.
In case you have been in a Tibet monastery for the past few days, Smutty is graciously posting the video of the speech heard around the world which birthed “Eastwooding”.
We all know how popular cat videos are on the Internet. And there are countless feline blogs available to please the most discriminating reader.
Now Smutty is pleased to announce that your cat can Tweet you all day as you are away from home. Yes, for just a few dollars and a little effort, you can build a cat toy that allows your furry loved one to send you Tweets of joy and happiness. If this doesn’t make your day, I don’t know what will.
Smutty, however will continue to Tweet the old fashioned way, with a touchscreen tablet.
Smutty likes to blog. After all, humans don’t understand cat-speak so I have to write it down to be heard.
But Smutty is a little confused about all the different Social Media activities going on. Facebook, Twitter, Empire Avenue, Google+. It seems just as one gets popular, another comes along. Then you connect them so the same information is going to the same people you were connected to on the last site.
It seems that maybe all of the sites should get together so you can just make one big post and everyone would get a big update together. Maybe this would be too much for humans. Maybe they should get back to basics, just sniff each other and move on.
Smutty loves the article by Paul Carr outlining how the Internet enables those who act without thinking to circulate harmful and untruthful stories or, in some cases profilerate scams.
For instance, in May when the world apparently ended, as many as 2,000 people signed up for a service to take care of their pets AFTER the end of the world. They each paid $850.00 for this privilege.
Correct me if my feline brain has it wrong, but if the world ends, won’t pets be gone also? And how about the people who were paid to watch the pets, won’t they be dead? So, how will they fill the contract when they and the pets are dead?
An ounce of research can prevent a pound of useless re-tweeting and blogging.
Yawn… nap time.
