How to be Cool on the Internet.....in 4 Easy Steps


So
QATFYG :
What is cool ? And in an age so wired, how does one obtain a status of cool on the internet?

I tossed a few questions to our resident expert on Cool……..Mari from Norway, who gets nearly 200 people a day asking to be her friend. She gives us the spill on what you have to do to be cool.

Q: What is cool?
A: People who talk to everyone. some people are really
arrogant, they often restrict their privacy settings so people from for example asia can't contact them.. or no one over 30, etc.
ok, i understand they're just not interested, or afraid of perverts.. but if you want to be liked, you have to at least try to like everyone else ^^ and be nice, of course.

Step 1: Be nice, friendly, outgoing, and most importantly……….never be afraid.

Q: What are the things that people do or say that really make you never want to speak to them again?
A: It's not really the things they say, because i don't take everything seriously from people on the internet.If i did that, i'd be gone a loong time ago :P

Step 2: Never take things too seriously. Cool is not hot. It is not cold. It is cool.

Q: Can you tell from the start if someone is a creep?
A: hmm, pretty often, yeah. can't explain how i do that, i just get the feeling.

Step 3: Impressions and vibes are everything. Make sure you make the lasting first impression. After all it does last a lifetime.

Mari also offers the tip:

Add a warning to your profile.
“I'll hate you if you viewed my profile without leaving me a message, comment or anything! you don't wanna risk being hated, do you?
I don't usually bite :D”

Step 4: Be strong and commanding, but most importantly…..be inviting.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i
