"Total Eclipse of the Heart" has a pretty messed up video for something that sounds like a love song on the surface: http://www.youtube.com/das_cap...
You could easily re-dub the video with a horror film soundtrack. - Brian Johns
The literal version points out how little sense it makes: https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Neal Krummell
that's awesome. - Brian Johns
I like the Hurra Torpedo version: https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Stephen Mack
That's the version I usually think of but I wanted to see the original version and - wow! I thought it was a fake video at first. - Brian Johns
Yeah, it's something. Neal's is hilarious. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Brian Williams addresses this whole thing where Jimmy Fallon makes him rap. And it's hilarious. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Hello from Pacific Grove, version 2
I'm looking for a company to host my email with my personal domain. IMAP required. I don' tmind paying a little for a decent service. Suggestions?
Hmm. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Run your own server? - Todd Hoff
I've heard good things about https://www.fastmail.fm for a long time. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
being "hosted" so I don't have to run my own server is absolutely the #1 requirement for this. - Brian Johns
Godaddy, google - Ubikindred
So far, pobox.com is looking the strongest. - Brian Johns
I can recommend NOT using Bluehost.com. We seem to have lots of mail issues with them. - Ken Gidley
So, um google apps? - Steve and 4 other people
Meanwhile, in LA: http://www.cnn.com/2014...

I just learned today that Joan Rivers is still alive.
How lucky for you to be oblivious all this time. :) - Tamara J. B.
She's going strong at age 80. Her career actually improved -- high-grossing comedy tours -- after the 2010 documentary about her, "A Piece of Work" and her Celebrity Apprentice win in 2009. - Stephen Mack
I think she might be touring over here soon... - Heleninstitches #teamff
I remember the first time my parents took us camping in Tahoe (along with my mom's brother's family) back in the 1980s. One of the nights, I was watching the younger kids and my cousins while the parents hit the casinos. Joan Rivers was playing at the Caesar's Palace, and my mom wanted to see her, but my dad thought the tickets were too expensive. My mom decided to play the slots, and... more... - Stephen Mack
Great story, Stephen! - Tamara J. B.
Her face will live forever. - Julian
Well, I only learned about her still being alive due to her recent comments about Lena Dunham's weight. I wonder what this will do to her career. - Brian Johns
Cal Poly and Mercer could meet in the Elite 8 round.
So, how about that Mercer Basketball??? Looking good for Cal Poly tonight! :-)
Go California! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Sorry, but Cal didn't make it this year. - Brian Johns
I wonder how many people are rooting for the wrong Cal Poly? :D - Victor Ganata
Sparky: The state in general. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
"SLO! SLO! SLOOO! SLOOOO! SLOOOOOOOOOO! SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" - Victor Ganata
Cal Poly currently leads Texas Southern 32-24 in their first March Madness appearance ever. :-)

Did some phone tech support for the parents about bookmarks getting lost in Firefox and I realized that I haven't used bookmarks in years. RSS killed bookmarks for me and ever since Google Reader went away I've been getting by with the auto-complete on the URL field and just not caring anymore.
Congrats to the Cal Poly Men's Basketball team on making March Madness for the first time ever! I was happy to shoot your game at Stanford earlier this year: http://www.flickr.com/photos...
How far can the 12-19 underdog go? - Brian Johns
Dayton -- unless they beat Texas Southern or North Carolina Central. - Julian
That's my assumption too. This isn't something Cal Poly fans have ever had to deal with. - Brian Johns
Hello FFriends - I have been Busy for the last couple months but I think I'm back. What did I miss?
We had punch and pie - Johnny from iPhone
We got attacked by Anonymous which turned out to be a whacko spammer who misunderstood someone removing spam for censorship. - Johnny from iPhone
I missed punch and pie??? - Brian Johns
I'm not going to try to catch up on 2.5 months of missed entries. - Brian Johns
Some great stuff here: http://friendfeed.com/summary... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Your car got busted into here at work? Damn! - Brian Johns
Yeah. :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Punch and pie are the not the only entrees you missed. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I'm due in July. :-D - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I, like, did stuff. - Melly
there was a fight over who likes cilantro/avocados/pie-v-cake and who doesn't. you know, usual stuff. - Marie
Dreamt of electric sheep. Is that normal? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I have time to read blogs again so the loss of Google Reader is just now hitting me. What RSS or blog reader do y'all recommend?
i've really enjoyed feedly. the interface design is nice and clean, easy on my eyes. - Marie
I've been using The Old Reader but I'm also pondering Digg. - Amit Patel
Feedly. - Louis Gray
Newsblur. - Akiva
Feedly with Mr Reader for a mobile client. - Technodad
Thanks everyone. I'll poke around some of these this weekend. - Brian Johns
The only problem I have with feedly is that it makes it too easy to skip over less interesting posts. That's also the biggest advantage of feedly. - walt crawford
look up 'old reader' it's just like google reader - tom digenti
I went to a football game last night and took some pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos...
AJ Batac keeps my Flickr feed lookin' good.
:) - AJ Batac
Wow - cruising AJ's blog is a mix: A funny holiday video (which I reshared) followed by a video of an execution. (no, I'm not stalking you!) - Brian Johns
This is my favorite photography video today: http://vimeo.com/81847258
I met an introvert today. He didn't want to talk though, which depressed me, so I had to listen to Call Me Maybe a few times to cheer myself up.
All extroverts need to read this and live it. - Jim #teamFFrank
I think MoTO and I would get along in real life.

Stephen Mack: Have you seen this? Celebrities Die 2.7182 at a time. http://ssp.impulsetrain.com/2013-06...
The math used is above my pay grade but it appears to not define celebrities, and the "clustering" definition isn't intuitive. I prefer my analysis! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I know some of my FFriends like knitting and some FFriends like running. So we have this: Kintting while running a marathon: http://www.newser.com/story...
I love this man already. I must recruit him to my team. (that was one of my lines all weekend. "You're awesome! Which team are you on? Would you be interested in relocating to Team Solano?" :D) - Hookuh Tinypants
What?! That's crazy! Haha! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Who here has used 23andme for genetic testing? What are the ramifications (if any) of using completely fake information to register?
There's a whole 23andme group here on FF. I used my real name so it's hard for me to anticipate what would have happened had I not. As far as the 23andme site, you can use a username so that people at large don't see your real name unless you choose to reveal it to them. http://friendfeed.com/23andme - Spidra Webster
I'm happy that they allow you to control what shows up on the website but I'm also interested in remaining completely anonymous to them behind the scenes. - Brian Johns
And thanks for the pointer to the group! - Brian Johns
Huh. Turns out I was already subscribed to the group. :-) - Brian Johns
Yeah, I really can't predict what would happen if you did that. I suppose there's the chance they'd be able to figure it out anyway if you didn't also get your parents, siblings, cousins to submit to 23andme anonymously as well. - Spidra Webster
I was telling my parents about the general concept this weekend and my dad thought "Why would anyone ever consent to that sort of potential privacy breach or personal intrusion?" So I think he would be a hard sell, which is too bad because as an older person with an established medical history he's probably got less "privacy" to lose than any of the rest of the family. - Brian Johns
For me, I think I trusted a bit. I felt what I got in benefit outweighed the risk. There might be more labs offering services now than then so maybe there's a place that offers what people feel are better privacy protections. But I felt that both the medical information and genealogical information would be worth it for me. (BTW, Family Tree DNA offers both med and genealogical results so if you like their approach any better...) - Spidra Webster
I've used 23andme but I haven't gotten my results back yet. I'll admit that the privacy thing scared me a little but not enough to deter me. I can't see the harm in providing false identity information as you'll still get the results of your DNA if you used a different name and address. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Hey Internet: I heard you live videos of cats and dogs doing cute things: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013...
I only got 10/20 right. (or wrong) - Brian Johns
IKEA or death? I choose... IKEA. But I had to think about it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
14! - Melly
15/20 and I don't know death metal at all. I do love IKEA stuff though. - Andrew C (✔)
Both mr 13 and I got 12 right. - Joe
Remember Jon Udell's Heavy Metal Umlaut screencast? http://jonudell.net/udell... (Good grief. 2005? It's that old? I feel a little ancient now.) - bentley
You scored 14 out of 20! Congrats you are... Kvlt. You know that Furkantig means “square” in Swedish to describe the candles that you have on your altar. And above it? The raddest picture of Euronymous ever. Seriously, you scare children and their parents alike, all while wowing them with your design sense. - Just another Bubba
I thought it said "Ike or Death" and thought "Better choose Ike." I'd rather have Ike right now, he wouldn't put up with this shit. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
17/20 though I can't say I know anything, I was just clicking randomly - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I liked this article about what the Tea Party wants from the shutdown: http://www.marketwatch.com/story...
