  • Shutting Down Xanga.

    The Mayans were right! Xanga is going to shutdown! EVERYBODY PANIC!

    GOD! Only 200 thread sheets?!

    When I said in my previous post that Xanga is on the demise, I didn't think they would take me TOO seriously. I mean, come on, guys, calm down here. Let's not act too irrational. Where are all the Malaysians going to live now? THINK OF THEM, DAMN IT!

    My hair...feels so soft.

    In the unfortunate event that the community miraculously doesn't come up with $60,000 in 6 weeks (sounds like a fishy spam letter don't it?), I do want to keep in touch with many of you. I've made so many friends here, including many close friendships. So I'd like to extend the offer to contact me through Facebook. www.facebook.com/cakalusa (please include your username in the message) or Twitter: www.twitter.com/cakalusa

  • 11 Things I've Learned On Xanga.

    Ah yes, the good ol' days.

    Member Since: 5/30/2002

    2002. TWO. THOUSAND. TWO.

    Geezus, I'm old. Today marks my 11th year owning this Xanga account. It was created the year after 9/11 happened, and when the US (of 'MURICA!) started the war in Iraq. I remember my first post vividly; and the irony of it all. And with time comes experience, and many eProps that I'll never use (stupid, worthless eProps!). So here are...

    11 Things I've Learned About Xanga Over the Years.
    1. If you don't show your face in your profile picture, you've got something to hide; you're probably ugly.
    2. Everyone here is an attention whore to an extent.
    3. It's very cliquey on Xanga. I thought I escaped all of that after high school. I was wrong.
    4. Xanga spell check isn't always akkurate.

      https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/561979_800212416317_1182135737_n.jpg

      In 2001, the iPhone didn't even exist!


    5. Xanga has more porn than your father's secret stash in the attic.
    6. The ratio of good writers to mediocre is 1:1000; they are real treasures. You think you write well, but you don't. Just because someone left a positive comment on what an "amazing" poet you are should not get to your head.
    7. Same applies for photographers.

    8. You should always save your work (ctrl+c posts). Nothing is safe!
    9. Xanga is on the decline. Its last breath.
    10. Pulse was the original Twitter.
    11. You will meet some wonderful people here, some have even gone through marriage.
    What have you learned from Xanga?

    The BRF aka "Bitchy Resting Face."

    There's the unibrow, the infamous lazy eye, and even the pedosmile. But today, I've been informed I've a "Bitchy Resting Face." For reasons unbeknownst to me all these years, someone finally had the courage to let me know.

    What is it precisely? If you think a person looks cranky, they may just be suffering from an affliction called "bitchy resting face."

    Here are other examples of BRP:

    Featured on Funny or Die explores the phenomena of “Bitchy Resting Face,” a “disorder that affects millions of women every day” that makes them look bitchy even when they’re really not.

    Ladies and gentlemen who have "Bitchy Resting Faces", tell me about your stories. I can’t be the only one who goes through this on a regular basis, right? I ain't even mad (about anything)!

  • The Cockblock

    https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/58146_804894673037_977790916_n.jpg
    Bros 4 lyfe!

    If there's one rule in the Manly Brocode of Codiness™  that every guy should follow, it's to never cockblock. Even if you're Dwyane Wade, you don't cockblock me.

    This past weekend was spent celebrating a friend's birthday along with mine. It was a marathon of day drinking and eating, starting around noon. The night approached as we found ourselves in a nightclub. We made our way downstairs where these two female promoters came up to me and asked if I wanted free drinks. Who'd ever decline a free drink from strangers? Plus, I love the taste of roofies, especially from the ladies. So I agreed. They handed me a bunch of beers and we parted ways.

    Me, @mkazama, and friends getting tipsy.

    More drinks, more dancing (to awkward dubstub music), and more mingling. I spot a duo of girls sitting in the couch a few feet away. Every time I looked over, they would as well. I didn't think much of it, until they both came up to me and began flirting. One of them asked where I was from (she happens to live in a neighboring town), what I was celebrating, and other boring "let's-chat-but-what-I-really-wanna-know-is-if-you're-going-to-bang-me" questions. A few minutes of chatting later, she pulls out her phone; usually, it's a can of pepper spray. In my head, I was thinking "Yes, here's my chance. The door's wide open for you, Chris!"

    https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/540133_800816665397_352246653_n.jpg
    Yes! Drunk text me! Text me like one of your French girls!

    Instead, I feel a tap on my shoulder. It was one of my friends who showed up late to the party. We exchanged words, talked about a few things; each of my sentences getting shorter. My friend didn't get the hint. He kept talking. I could slowly see the girls next to me losing interest and looking at their phones. "Fack!" Before I could end the conversation with my friend, the girls quickly said goodbye and left to get more drinks.

    He inadvertently cockblocked me.

    I was ready to strangle my friend with my hands and eagle talon feet. But he didn't know, I can't hate him for it. However, his invite to my next birthday event will "mysteriously" get lost in the mail somehow.
