I've been Bitched!

Imagine my surprise to find out that Etsy Bitch liked one of my comments enough to quote it on their front page! Yes, I have been bitched about! The Etsy Bitch blog says what we all want to say about Etsy and have not been able to out of fear. These ladies and one guy are ballsy and let Etsy have it in the chops. If you haven't read it yet I highly recommend it and offer up this link.

This is the link to the comment: Quotable Quotes

I also found out I can use this cute graphic if I want too. Isn't it adorable? It is for people who have been banned or muted in the forums. I was muted by Danielle when she was running riot in the forums and was unmuted by Matt himself and given an apology. He is a seriously nice guy and what a headache Etsy must be giving him.

Too cool huh?

A Cause To Sing About

One of my favourite bands has ceased to exist, technically. I have adored The Actual ever since I heard them play at Warp Tour in San Diego 2005. They were old school and had a sound that I loved. I played the demo CD I got at the concert until they released their In Stitches CD. I loved all the songs and waited for more. But there wasn't anymore. They disbanded at the end of 2007 and the members have all moved on. I just found out though that there is a new group, Max and the Marginalized with the same sound as The Actual, since it seems to be the lead singer that started it. They have a political message and all their songs are free for download. What a cool concept! I am a political kind of gal so this type of music is right up my alley, can we say Midnight Oil? So here is a the widget to their site. Enjoy!
