Walk on the Wild Side/LJ/Life/LJ

If you want to watch and listen to a video of Lou Reed doing a rather different version of "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" with Moby, you will click here. I found it via Neil Gaiman's blog's lj feed.

I've been very busy lately, both at work and otherwise and have not found time to make a proper journalley post to LJ. I've also been tired and had a cold or something. But all is OK.

There is much drama going around about changes to LJ. In my opinion, asking people to either pay or view ads in order to use a website is a perfectly reasonable request for a company to make. (I know they may not be handling communication of the changes very well, and there are other unrelated problems, but that seems to be the top one on everyone's list.) They're not forcing anyone to pay, or forcing anyone to view ads - you just have to pick one or the other. And they're letting people who already have free accounts keep them, so no one can say "I've been on LJ forever and now they're doing this to me". It only effects new accounts, and not in any horrible/unusual way. So, big deal.

EDIT: This provided some explanation to me of what is bothering people about the lj changes: http://brad.livejournal.com/2368071.html
Basically, if some interesting people choose not to blog on LJ because they don't want to pay or see ads, this will make LJ less of a cool place.

It's the lack of decent communication that I'm upset about, not the ads/no ads kerfuffle, so not strike for me.

They're making changes? (I am captain oblivious!!!) :)

I think the changes that the Russians will bring will generally make LJ less fun. If they make it bad enough, I will leave, and that will make me sad. But LJ has to pay the bills too.

I personally think that all the innovative Russians are already working for Google.
