Songs Newly Heard Which I Like – Sha La La (Makes Me Happy) by Al Green


This second entry in 2014 for songs I heard for the first time that I like a lot is Sha La La (Makes Me Happy) by Al Green.

Why do I like it? Just the groove it has, I would say. Appropriate with it being a 70s song from 1974. And that’s about it, to be honest. But it was groovy enough for me to add it to my list. 🙂

I hope you like it, too!

Analysis of a Sample Favourite Characters Correlation Survey, Part 1

A few weeks ago, I shared a fun short survey with regards to people’s favourite fictional characters to see if there were demographic trends. It was for me to learn the capabilities of Google Forms, with a survey that would have some meaning to hopefully generate interest for doing something on a larger scale in the future. Most of those who answered would have been associated with Halifax (Nova Scotia) based Facebook groups of geek/nerd interest like Hal-Con (our local “comic-con”), Anime-at-Large and Jules Verne Phantastical Society (JVPS, steampunk), but they were definitely not the only ones. Thanks to all those who did it, and shared it, including Michael McCluskey (aka Fat Apollo).

Tagging Your Friends as Being Most Wanted by the FBI (FaceBook Inc.)

The faces used in this Facebook tagging meme are those on the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Most Wanted List as of Sep 23 2009. The link takes you to the page, but the material won’t likely be the same because it is a page that has to be kept up to date to the day.

The meme is meant to be fun, turned on its head as a joke, even if I know this isn’t everybody’s sense of humour. FBI stands for Facebook Inc. here, the company name with the common usage of FB as an abbreviation for Facebook. Most Wanted also doesn’t necessarily mean bad. You can be wanted for any reasons. I’ve once handed in a designer resume where I portrayed myself as being a “Wanted” character… and I got a great job for years from it!

I haven’t put any descriptions with the fugitives cause I don’t really think I need to. Just go with the flow and think of it as “tag your friends as terrorists”. Tag people who maybe look like someone, or has an expression like them or something. But please, use responsibly. Don’t be doing this to people you don’t like. It says tag your friends, not people you don’t like!

Bad taste? Maybe. But I’ll tell you one thing, I’ll bet there are a lot more people doing Facebook tagging than visiting the FBI Most Wanted List. It’s a way to get the images out there. The FBI should have created this in the golden days when Facebook tagging memes were hot in the winter of early 2009. Oh, well.

Here’s how to get this Facebook picture meme:

  • Click on the picture to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!

p.s. Thanks to the FBI for making the pictures all the same size as blocks so I could assemble this meme rather quickly. Nice to see they’re organized.
