I intentionally avoided posting content on the site yesterday, because i figured, eh, it's all just going to be people complaining about Valentine's Day anyway, I'm not going to try and compete with the allure of that!
Adrian is aware of the problem, some setting on our new server isn't happy so the server gets overwhelmed after a while.
If the site doesn't load for you, just drop me an e-mail at:
Hmm, I guess I'm a bit surprised how it seems more difficult to find lesbian youth content than it is to find gay boys.
On Google, YouTube, and other places, the search terms "young lesbian," "lesbian teen," and such find me more porn than real articles, blogs, podcasts, etc.
Wow, not really finding my groove here out in the suburbs. Oddly enough, though, the stuff I'm not finding time to do is the stuff I thought would be the majority of my time (watching DVDs, seeing movies, etc.).
Trying to get ramped up here with the new Oasis Magazine launch.
Back in Pennsylvania now for the holidays, so yesterday I went through the old Oasis Magazine archives, removing nearly 1,000 articles that don't need to be imported (mainly the old news, and the letter from the editors, etc). Then, I will be adding the old celebrity interviews and profiles manually (since they require layout, due to the photos and all), and sending the rest off to Adrian to import. All the old celebrity interviews and profiles should be posted this week, and then I can focus all my efforts on writing more of the regular content for the magazine.
Today's the day, Oasis is 11 years old.
Thanks to everyone who comes here and makes the site what it is. I don't know that I had any clue what I was starting back in 1995, but I'm certainly glad of what it became.
This will certainly be a birthday that is celebrated in a big way here, hopefully you'll know what I'm talking about within the week. Soon, though.
Hey everyone, just want to welcome you to the new site. There's still more to come very soon, but this was one big step that needed to happen before the rest can fall into place. Post here if you find any technical issues, etc., so we can fix them. And, if you have any questions about the new site, ask here as well.
Someone new is on MySpace, more details to come later... but its URL is:
Went early last night to get in line for the MySpace BlackCarpet screening of "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan." I got there at around 6:30p, for an event with doors opening at 9, and the movie supposedly starting at 10p. But I'm a huge Borat fan, so it seemed a good way to see the movie more than a month before it hits theaters.
Seems like school (or something) has stirred up a lot of angst on the site lately. People upset at the behavior of friends, reactions of their peers, problems with their parents, and so on...
I just finished (like 10 minutes ago) reading the book "Inspiration" by Wayne Dyer, and found it to be profoundly moving and resonant. In the book, he referenced a parable about carrots, eggs, and coffee that made me think of Oasis and how people react and get so riled up by their interactions with people. A quick Google search spared me from having to type it in. It's definitely worth thinking about...
Can anyone else successfully add YouTube content? Roll call... may need Adrian to enable some permissions or something...
from now on (or until adrian tells me this is a security risk), you can now copy the "Embed" url from YouTube and paste it directly into your Oasis post, so people can watch YouTube content without having to leave Oasis...
It is going to get strange around here...
Went to see it last night in SF...
Always amusing, and it isn't the first time this has happened, but I decided to search on Camille Paglia's opinions on a specific topic and the first link AND the answer to the question I had was found in Oasis:
Worth a read, as I still find her fascinating... and
