here's my secret.

I used to really like PostSecret. What a cool idea: Random people from all over the country make a neat little postcard with their deepest, darkest secret on it, and then it gets posted on the Internet. (Which I guess is something that would only be considered "cool" in an age where people who do shit like this are named "Person of the Year" by Time Magazine. WTF??)

But now I just think it's kind of self-indulgent. Another way to anonymously whine about your miserable life, in a place where you KNOW thousands of people are going to see it. Here's one from this past Sunday's posting:

Come on. Not only is this SAME EXACT secret posted every single week, it describes at least 90% of the general population (and probably 100% of the population that actually reads PostSecret.) I also love the ones that say, "I thought sending my secret to you would make me feel better.

It didn't."

It just reeks of italicized 14-year-old MySpace angst. Love. It.

In other news, the new Harry Potter book has a title. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows." No release date in sight. I don't think J.K. Rowling is even finished writing it. Pre-ordering is available at Borders, though. It'd be hilarious if it ended up being the book version of the PS3...a 700-page Harry Potter tome, available to 1,027 lucky readers with $600 to spare.
