Trying to keep it positive, but it’s been a very discouraging week. Aside from a deluge of ugly stories in the news, I’ve reached out to the Google+ help forums again without a great deal of success. There’s been some empathy, which is nice, but there have been some ugly responses as well.Those in the middle have been of the “Google’s actual policy is slightly more stringent than their published policy would have you believe.” (thank you +Kamal Tailor)
Honestly, I can accept that, although it would be really nice if the published policy matched the effective policy.
Anyway, I miss my friends on that site. There were 500 or so people following me and many of them were people I’d met through that site. The community was easily the best part of that site, but that will fail if they insist on “real” names, and that’s unfortunate.
Ok, back to positive stuff!
I don’t know if you’re familiar with the music of Parry Gripp, but if you’re not, you should be. He create songs that are like hypercaffeinated They Might Be Giants snippets and some of them are pure genius and very dangerously catchy.
So, for positivity week, I present these three Parry Gripp selections:
This Is The Best Burrito I’ve Ever Eaten:
Baby Monkey (Going Backwards On A Pig):
Little Octopus Climbing Over A Rock:
If those don’t get you humming, I don’t know what will. Literally. I have no clue.
