Is Uffie still 'bloggable content'?
I didn't read about 'why' Uffie was naked and her boyfriendArtBro was doodling her, but it seemed bloggable. But then I got all sad cuz I don't want my blog to be aligned with n00dz+electro any more. Kinda want to make it more like a 'communal room where bros turn on lava lamps and listen to AnCo/incubus.'

I remember back in 2k7/k8, Uffie would always 'show off her nips' and it would be s000 bloggable. Kinda ashamed of who I was back then. I thought it was funnie that I kept blggng about her, even though she has only really made like 2.5 songs. It was a 'funnie joke' since she just kinda parties and pretends 2 be a musician. but now I actually hold my altcelebs and musicians accountable for progressive our art economy.
In 2k9, now that we are closer to bringing authentic art/artists to the mainstream, I will no longer honor memes like this. It's time to 'grow up' and put Ed Banger behind us, yall. U have 2 realize that when u go to a Justice concert, u r perpetuating consumerist bullshit. It's just the next trend that pokemones/mexicAlts are going to worship. (not sure if ppl already stopped following Ed Banger memes+artists in 2k5)
Yall need to worship that it is 'okay to like music' for any reason, but it is also 'okay to resent music that u used 2 allegedly like and shun that era of ur life, completely invalidating who U were during that time.'
We need to grow up.
We need to come up with a global rubric for what constitutes 'art.'
We need international blogging guidelines for 'what memes are bloggable.'
We need viral containment standards.
We need to look in the mirror
and realize that we will not last forever (our lives')
and do more to chill hard
without thinking about
why we like what we like
and follow what we follow.
(do yall know what female artists will be big in 2k9? Maybe that girl who wrote that song about how she's not gonna write u a love song (u say I only hear what I want 2)?)
What should HRO be about in 2k9? what gimmicks can yall see emerging?
