Welcome to this week’s Friday Open Thread! A place for friendship. A place for photos. A place for gifs and stories about your date or not-date or work or week or cat/dog or life.
I haven’t hosted this internet party in a few months and, like Carmen last week, have just returned from visiting the place my girlfriend lives (Los Angeles) for two months to the place that I live (Montreal) and am coping mostly by workaholism and reading everything I can get my hands on and listening to The 1975.
I’ve also been playing a lot of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood because it’s just like being in Los Angeles, sort of.
I have also been going for walks! Mostly because I do not have air conditioning and it’s been nice out and anything is better than being inside. Look at this epic tree-lined sidewalk.
Being home also means I have all this time that I have recently been using for making out but that I can now use for catching up on ’90s pop culture, which is why tonight, I’m watching Spice World, a movie I only failed to see when it came out because my parents were so worn out on nine-year-old me insisting we listen to Spice every minute of every day that they somehow forgot to tell me it existed.
SO! Which Spice Girl was your favorite or least favorite? Do you think Spice World‘s critical reception, by which I mean it’s 3.2 rating on imbd, is deserved or a travesty? If you are not spending your Friday being 17 years late to this party, how is your week going? What are you reading or who are you doing or where are you going — or emphatically not going — later? Show me your pictures and gifs and ill- or brilliantly conceived poetry about what you’ve been up to and what you’re doing right this second and anything else you want!
How To Post A Photo In The Comments:
1. Find a photo!This is the easy part. Find a photo on the web, right click (on a Mac, control+click), hit “Copy Image URL” and then…
2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code, and use a DIRECT LINK to the image. Your image link should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or .CallMeWhateverYouWant even. I don’t care, but it should be an image suffix!
How To Post A Video In The Comments, Too:
1. Find a video on YouTube or Vimeo or WHATEVER and click “embed.” Copy that code, but first make sure it’s for 640px wide or less. If your player is too large, it will not display properly.
2. Copy the code and paste it directly into your comment.
3. Go forth and jam.
