I am a huge book nerd. I pretty much read everything I can get my hands on, so of course I have read the Game of Thrones series. It was totally awesome, and I have recently been enjoying the HBO version as well. That said, I was pretty excited when I saw these Drinking glasses with the house crests on them.

Alright, I know I have been neglecting my blog for a while now, but I am back. Had to deal with actual RL issues. Anyhow, to get back into the swing of things, here is a remix of the Matrix lobby scene, by Matt Mulholland. I pretty much am a fan of all things Matrix, and besides that, his one-man sound effects are awesomesauce.

Since I spent most of last week playing 'LEGO Star Wars' on the PS3, I figured that I would share the LEGO love, so here you go. It's the Oscar-nominees for best picture movie posters, with LEGO people :)

We have all heard that companies and colleges will occasionally check an applicants facebook before hiring/enrolling them. Well, now there is proof that it has, in fact, become commonplace. A recent Kaplan study found that admissions departments at 80% of top colleges “visited potential students’ online profiles during their recruiting process. One blogger wrote:
"I doubt that hordes of students frequently lose scholarships or have an admission reneg’d for something that they innocently put up on Facebook. BUT what actually happens is much worse. Indiscreet social media postings can make your interviewer (or the admissions officer) prejudiced against you without realizing it. And that’s scary and worrisome because a large chunk of admissions decisions are really close calls. They are based on “fit” and “feel” – it’s not just what you’ve shown you can do, but the potential people think you have.".
So, if you are planning on applying for school, or for a job... make sure you lock up your privacy settings on all social media sites. It's hard enough to get ahead in the world without the disadvantage of your interviewer having seen photos of you doing keg stands in the nude at last weekends party.
