Wow. No wonder that record companies had no clue what to do about sales.
Users on both Facebook and Instagram are being told they need to provide government-issued identification in order to access their accounts, which have been otherwise locked down. This is reportedly an official effort by the social media pair — Facebook is Instagram’s parent company — against accounts they suspect of terms of service violations. Further, some users who went to this quite suspicious trouble (in the age of identity theft and information trading, being told to send a photo of your ID for a Facebook account doesn’t immediately ring true) didn’t even have their type of ID accepted. Rather, they were instructed to provide further documentation — anything from a copy of a work or school ID, to a copy of a birth certificate. (Photo from Talking Points Memo) source
Seems a little excessive for social media, no?
WHAT HAPPENED TO FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM JUST BEING FUN?!
Caption from LIFE. Goats on the rooftops clatter about and often butt and wrestle each other for the best positions on the ridges. Schweitzer imported a basic herd from Europe some years ago. Its playful descendants still flourish and are allowed to run freely through the village streets and orchard. See more photos here.
The roof is full of goats!

If I Had a Boat//Lyle Lovett//Pontiac
People are blogging a song called If I Had a Boat all over my dashboard.
And all it does is make me think of a song I heard on a children’s compilation years ago that I LOVED: If I Had a Boat by Lyle Lovett. It’s probably the only Lyle Lovett song I know, but it’s so pretty and so idealistic. Listen to it and try not to sing along by the end.
If I had a boat
I’d go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I’d ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat
LOVE this song.
Let’s try another contest.
Go to Find the Starlight and follow along.
Click here to see how you can help (you do not need to offer help there to enter, but you may want to see what is there).
At 9:00 p.m. EST on January 15th, two of the people who do so will be selected at random to receive an Alchemy Starter Set.
I don’t enjoy these methods. But this is the future of information we have reached. And these are the roads we must travel through it.
Good luck, kittens.
If you aren’t following “findthestarlight” — stop what you’re doing and do so immediately.
Huh. How ‘bout that.
Oh, TLJ, they just started another Tumblr about you…
