New RSS Feed, New Forum

So the entire last week was spent migrating webhosts which explains all the downtime and stuff (I'm new to all that technobabble, so, apologies). As a result, though, the site has undergone a few backend upgrades, with a brand-spanking-new design in the works that should be up in the next week or so!

Anyway, to the point: THE RSS FEED URL HAS CHANGED. As far as I know, this is important. As I've been told to do through tutorials I've read, I set up a 301 redirection at the location of the old feed, but I'm not sure how that works really, so uh. The new address is HTTP://WWW.cheerupemokid.com/FEED and will be permanent for the most part. For those who don't know what the hell this is, think of it as a bookmark that alerts you when the website has been updated. I think. Anyway, that's important, I guess, so, please update your bookmarks!

Also, the Cheer Up, Emo Kid Forum is up at http://forum.cheerupemokid.com. Feel free to sign up and start some discussion because I'm pretty tired of talking to myself.

In other news, you should definitely watch The Watchmen movie if you haven't already. I mean, people either love it or hate it apparently, but either way, it's something to talk about! Unless you don't have friends, then that's just kind of sad.

I'd write more but I already posted up my Rihanna rant so here's some sugary goodness for the day.

Oh, and in case you've been wondering, that goofy-looking dude on the left is the guy behind LoveIsAStory, which has some pretty good music, as well as a sweet cover of Imogen Heap's "Hide & Seek", or the song that everyone would be familiar with more as the song in that SNL Skit, "Dear Sister." Mmmm, what you say? Mmm, that you only meant well? Well, of course you did. That one! That one.

This guy was jerking it when his mom suddenly called him on Skype, which was apparently set on aut0-answer, with the webcam set to auto-start. [via boredatwork.com, via ubersite.com]

Is this real? Watchmen was made into a Saturday morning cartoon at one point? Oh dear god. [via todaysbigthing.com, via youtube.com]

This is Frank in real life. [via fmylife.com]

And I'm spent. Be sure to check out the forums, I don't think I'm gonna be posting links up here anymore since it's up.

Strip Reschedule

So I've been a bit busy lately with a lot of things and naturally am completely and infallibly inept at managing my time correctly, but the excuse I want to use is that the workload at school is getting a bit heavier on top of a few other things. We're still alive, though, but I'll have to reschedule the updates for now from the regular Monday, Wednesday and Friday routine to Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, designed to work around my class & homework schedule. We'll see how long that holds up, I guess. In the meantime, some stuff.

If you've never heard of The Boondocks, it's one of the few strips that appear in newspapers that's actually funny. Funny enough to have an animated series made that's even funnier. It's kind of old now, though, and I haven't seen or heard of any new episodes as of late (and I don't know how to read, so scratch keeping up with the newspaper comic) but it's definitely worth a watch.

Someone aired part of a porno to Comcast subscribers in Tucson, Arizona during the superbowl. Epic win.

The obligatory cute kitten video oh my god they're fucking adorable I want one oh dear give me a kitten please.

One side of me says, baww, that's adorable. The other side says, bitch, you dumb. What do you think?
