So I Guess I'll Start Reviewing Things Now

I don't really have much to talk about now, so I figure I'll start writing reviews about things 'n' stuff. Stay tuned, everybody!

Evil Subway

I'm writing a short story about a subway that eats people. It's complicated. Here's a little snippet of it:

Exactly 17.485 kilometres away, there was a small, lonely apartment. There was a dirty window at one end, which was covered by a thin, tattered curtain. At the other end, there was a small desk, which was surrounded by cascade of many different types of tools, some of which were literally encrusted with dust from years of a lack of use. On the desk there was a grey rotary phone, and a sea of papers. Leaning on that sea of papers was a weathered plumber by the name of Warren. Warren was resting after a long morning of repairs. This small apartment was his sanctuary; it was not clean, or otherwise comfortable by any means, but it was his. Nobody else could enter, so everything here was his, even the seemingly infinite layers of dust.
Warren sighed, then sat up. He stared at the window. He stood up, walked to it, then moved the curtain to the side, pouring light into the room. Somehow it seemed to make everything a bit less dead. He then walked over to his couch and sat down, making a large cloud of dust erupt from the surface of the cushion. He leaned forward, and switched on his TV set, which displayed the face of a reporter at a crime scene on the side of a road somewhere. The reporter discussed the atrocities of the situation, while lights blinked on and off in the background. Meanwhile, a flashy banner displayed news that wasn't good enough to actually get a segment on their show. Warren switched off the TV, then walked over to a door, and opened it. Inside, there was an extremely small bathroom. He stepped inside, then closed the door.

This isn't the final version. If you complain, I'll kill you.

Oh God! Not Gifboom!

In case, you haven't heard, Gifboom is like a photo sharing site, but you take movies and turn them into gifs. That's terrible! I don't want .gifs to go back into style! They really give me a bad vibe because I hated it back when sites were covered in stupid spinning buttons and stuff. I think anyone else who's seen that era of web design can agree.
All I can say, is that I really hope that this is just a passing fad, because if it catches on, I might have to throw away my Wi-Fi router. And that's a pretty big sacrifice because it means giving up Myst Online and YouTube, y'know?
