I think we bonded today :’).
This is my go-to recipe for Ramen because it’s quick, easy, has tons of veggies in it, and potentially has protein in it as well. And that’s a good thing if you’re a poor vegetarian.
Start by cutting up your veggies (You can use frozen veggies as well, but fresh taste better)
Yeah… I have a food blog too… But this is seriously how I’ve been making my Ramen for so long, and I want to share it with people because everyone I make it for seems to like it.
Okay so I know all of you are super pissed that the new U2 album was downloaded to your iTunes if you have one. I always see constant posts of people being angry that it was there, saying that they didn’t want it and that it was disturbing their perfect iTunes library of songs they wanted.
Now I need you to hold the fuck up and listen to why U2 and Apple decided to do this.
During the Apple live stream conference, the rock band U2 made a surprise entrance which was awesome to everyone watching. They performed their new single ‘The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)’, which was dedicated to the Ramones frontman. The Ramones was one of the first bands that the members of U2 had seen in concert and they claimed that it was life changing. After their performance, CEO Tim Cook and Bono (U2’s frontman) discussed a scripted conversation in front of the audience. Tim Cook expressed that congratulated them on their song and said, “Wasn’t that the most incredible single you’ve ever heard? We would love a whole album of that.” To which Bono replied with, “The question is now, how do we get it to as many people as possible, because that is all what our band is about. I do believe you have over half a billion subscribers to iTunes, so could you get this to them?”
"If we gave it away for free." Was Cooks response. Then it was in the music store, ready to be downloaded by users.
U2 just wanted to promote themselves and show people who they were. Like how many artists do they want to promote themselves and their work. they want to get their name out there. This was a marketing strategy that hey decided to use to get their music out to the public and Apple agreed to it. They meant no harm in any way but all they got was negative responses. They just wanted people to give them a chance. But apparently people couldn’t do that.
People didn’t want to take the time to download something and give it a listen before dismissing it right away. And if you actually listened to it, it was a pretty good album. U2 knew that people would get this music for free anyway, but downloading it illegally. So they just gave it to everyone for free legally. I don’t know about you, but I love free stuff and free music is amazing.
And don’t say it was Apple invading your privacy cause it’s not. Apple didn’t go through your library, it was something Apple put out like an automatic update.
If an artist like Beyonce did this, everyone would be flipping their shit calling her a queen and thanking everyone that she did this. Everyone would be ecstatic because you got a free surprise album from her. Just because U2 is a band that people have never heard about, everyone dismissed it as trash.
Do people understand that they are being mean and rude about this? Do people realize that this band consists of people who have feelings? Do they realize that this band was trying to do something nice?
These comments are rude and they are in response to a kind action. U2 is spreading their music and spreading their love. This is like giving someone a gift and watching them throw it in the garbage right in front of you without opening it. That sounds like a pretty dick move thing to do.
So that’s my rant on this whole U2 free album thing. Rea and I were discussing the topic and why people are so angry so I decided to make a post about it and bring our opinion about it to people.
Just, quit being so rude.

West, West, it’s finally happening!!!
Don’t be silly. What else do you think I’d be this excited about? Look at what Kara’s reading!
You get excited about everyth… oh. OH. Is it really???? Is it?!?!?!?
Yes! It is! :D
Okay, Tumblr, this is important. East and I first appeared in a book called ‘The Illuminated Heart’, which was published as an ebook last summer. Thea’s been working for a really long time to make it into a paperback and… and… East. aosdifaosfdng
I KNOW askjafhsdoifh. Tumblr, the paperback is gOING TO BE A THING. A REAL LIVE THING. WEST AND I ARE FINALLY GOING TO BE IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD. *flails*
East, I… I can’t believe this is finally happening. After so long.
Tell them what day.
You tell them. I just. I can’t.
weRE GOING TO BE REAL ON SEPTEMBER 16TH, TUMBLR! ON TUESDAY! :D
*wipes tears* It’s really happening, East. I… I’m so happy.
Me too, West. Me too. And I am going to be refreshing Thea’s website every two seconds so I can catch every single blog post she posts until it’s finally Launch Day.
September 16th. Wow. Just. Wow. Only three more days. Just. Wow. I think I’ll join you on her site. Just… wow.
Okay, I was not expecting East and West to get this emotional over all this. Even as much as they’re my creations, they still surprise me.
And, really, why wouldn’t they be this emotional? Imagine if you were a self-aware fictional character and you just found out that, after a year of waiting, your story was finally going to be in print. You’d be emotional, too.
I mean, I’m the author and I’m emotional about it. This’ll be my first paperback! I just… yeah. What they said. September 16th can’t come soon enough. :D
Do any of my Calgary friends know how to French braid? I have a mighty need to see what my hair looks like braided before I cut it…
