YouTube Preview Image I recently dug this song by Kate Miller-Heidke called "Are You Fucking Kidding Me?" up on the iTunes Store. I thought the song a rather genious and timely reflection of relationships in an era where Facebook is a primary method used when keeping in touch with friends (and old flames). I especially like the resolution of the song - "Click ignore"...sometimes it's best for us to for-go the urge to stalk the ones we once cared about to preserve our sanity. Enjoy! And if you like it don't forget to buy the song on iTunes.

Lyrics for Are You Fucking Kidding Me?

They say every one should have their heart broken least once
That that is how you grow emotionally
Well, I have been misused by many, many, many men,
but nothing can compare to how you treated me
At times it really felt as though the pain was here to stay
And though it's many years ago, I feel it to this day

And now you wanna be my friend on Facebook...
Are you fucking kidding me?

All the memories are flooding back to me now
All the ways you stole the light from my eyes
I traveled so far just to get away from you!
Till this mornings friend request surprise

At times it really felt as though I'd never smile again
You narcissistic ass hole, oh you nasty nasty man

And now you wanna be my friend on Facebook...
Are you fucking kidding?

I don't wanna know what kind of cocktail you are
Or which member of The Beatles or which 1950's movie star
I don't give a toss if you're a ninja or a pirate,
I'd suspect you'd be a pirate but I don't wanna verify it
And I don't give a shit what your stripper name is
Or if your Kitty had a litter

Look, just follow me on twitter
I don't care about your family tree
and I certainly don't want you poking me!

And now you wanna be my friend on Facebook...
Oh you fucking fucking fuck.

Click, ignore....

I love New York for many reasons: the fast pace, the crazy people, the way everything has a charming layer of grime on it, the skyline at night, and the fact that getting anywhere in this city, even though it might take awhile requires minimal attention on my behalf. So as I was walking out of my subway stop this evening at Eastern Parkway - Brooklyn Museum I was delighted to see a valentine's day poem posted on the wall written to MTA.

Given the immense challenge of shuttling 8 million people, I think most of the time the MTA does a pretty good job. It seems whoever wrote this valentine feels the same way. This little valentine brightened my day. To whoever wrote this valentine, you are awesome!

I'm an iPhone developer so I spend a good percentage of my time each day touching, playing with, and creating cool stuff for that shiny little device. While the amount of time I spend using an iPhone each day is probably greater than the average iPhone user, I don't think I'm alone when I say "my phone is a very personal piece of technology". I think that a device which spends an increasing amount of time by our sides should be something that reflects the person who is using it.

Smashing Magazine recently posted an article with links to a great collection of iPhone Wallpapers...that is after all the first thing we see when we press the home button to wake the phone up from sleep. :-) Of the collection one website stood out: Poolga. Poolga does what a lot of wallpaper sites fail to do, provide quality wallpapers that are well designed and inspiring. Of course all wallpapers are 320x480 so if you own a T-Mobile G1 or plan on purchasing a Palm Pre (which actually looks pretty cool) don't worry you can pimp your device too. ;-)
