Where To Find J~ On The Web

I’m one of those people who has sites all over the place for assorted purposes. Some are used regularly, others are forgotten, but at one time or another I’ve probably joined most of the big sites for at least a little while.

Knowing that a good number of you all out there on the Internets are members of assorted sites and like to find other people on those sites, I’m gonna share with the world a list of places you can find me on the web. Social networking at its finest.

http://www.myspace.com/sloopyster – I use this mainly to keep in touch with friends new and old who can’t find me through other means. A lot of old high school folks are on here as well as family. I don’t use it as much as I used to.

http://www.myspace.com/kenneyboy – this is my musical side. It’s a little underwhelming, but it’s a presence.

http://vcu.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25508638 – I just keep this around to keep in touch with folks at the radio station and school in general. I’ve found myself visiting it more and more but I just haven’t been hooked like so many others.

http://www.livejournal.com/lifeofjason – The personal supplement to J’s Notes, really. Nothing too spectacular, but it’s the way I keep in touch with my internet based friends.

http://www.last.fm/user/jasonkenney/ – What I was listening to last time I was hooked up to the internet while listening to muzak.

http://www.writerscafe.org/profile/kenneyjs/ – This is a neat little site where you can read and share stories and have folks review and rate and all that jazz. Sort of a MySpace for writin’. I haven’t written anything worth posting as of late, but there’s stuff to read there if you’re bored.

http://ficlets.com/authors/kenneyboy – Ficlets is another writing site but it works with smaller stories and promotes a round-robin type of storytelling. You toss up a small story and others can write sequels or prequels to it. Or you can write off of someone else’s work. And so on. I hit this once in a while, whenever I feel inspired but don’t have the drive for a full story.

Non-Social Networking (not that it’s anti-social)
Artifice Comics – What can I say, I’m a dork. And as a dork I write comic based fiction. Yes. Superhero stories. In particular one called Bush43 about a guy wearing a George W. Bush mask kicking bad guys in the jimmy in Austrailia. The series as it is is done now but I might revisit the idea in the very near future.

WVCW.org – VCU’s independent student radio station. I’m the General Manager and also host a show with Bryan on Wednesday nights at 8. We haven’t named the show yet. Despite being on the air for three weeks now. Ah well.

So if you happen to be a member of any of these sites (or join up after seeing me there), shoot me a friend/buddy/whatevertheycallit request and you can be part of the ever expanding Network Of J~. Granted, the last two sites you can’t “join” or anything, but check there they are if you’re interested. See ya around the web.

Live On WVCW Tonight

Tonight from 8-9 (maybe 10) pm catch the still nameless radio show featuring myself and Bryan With A Y on WVCW (RealPlayer required or anything else that’ll play a .ram file). I have no clue what we’re going to be talking about or playing music wise. So come enjoy the spur of the moment greatness that is college radio!

C’mon, what else are you doing on a Wednesday night?

CBS: Group Plans To Picket Va. Tech Funerals


The families of those killed in the Virginia Tech massacre may not be able to grieve in peace at the funerals of those they lost. An anti-gay religious group known for protesting at the funerals of American soldiers killed in Iraq is planning on appearing at services for those killed on Monday as well.

The Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), which is not affiliated with any national Baptist organization, announced plans to protest at victims’ funerals only hours after 32 people were killed in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. They also may protest at other events on the Virginia Tech campus.

The organization, founded and led by Fred Phelps, believes the United States has condemned itself to destruction by accepting homosexuality and other “sins of the flesh.” Phelps’ daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, said the Virginia Tech teachers and students who died on Monday brought their fate upon themselves by not being true Christians.

As horrible as these people are, I don’t see what signing an electronic petition is going to do to stop them.

BB: Why the shootings mean that we must support my politics

Via Boing Boing, replace “bombings” with “shootings” and you get the gist of it:

Many people will use this terrible tragedy as an excuse to put through a political agenda other than my own. This tawdry abuse of human suffering for political gain sickens me to the core of my being. Those people who have different political views from me ought to be ashamed of themselves for thinking of cheap partisan point-scoring at a time like this. In any case, what this tragedy really shows us is that, so far from putting into practice political views other than my own, it is precisely my political agenda which ought to be advanced.

Not only are my political views vindicated by this terrible tragedy, but also the status of my profession. Furthermore, it is only in the context of a national and international tragedy like this that we are reminded of the very special status of my hobby, and its particular claim to legislative protection. My religious and spiritual views also have much to teach us about the appropriate reaction to these truly terrible events.

People are going to take this tragedy and relate to it in terms they understand, whether those are personal or political or other. Everyone is going to have their own take and approach and either push it on others or take offense to how others approach it. But ultimately 99% of these people are simply trying to cope with something that is just too much to comprehend, especially with the even so close at hand. Just keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers.

VCU Tuition To Increase 5%

For the 2007-2008 year instate VCU students can expect to pay around 5% more compared to the previous year:

Tuition and fees for full-time, undergraduate Virginia students was set at $6,196, an increase of $377. Out-of-state students will pay $18,740, an increase of $1,124.

Which isn’t too bad compared to UVA’s 8.3% increase or Tech’s 10% jump. Still ends up being cheaper to school, live and dine at Tech, but for those who do their living and eating elsewhere, VCU’s tuition is the best rate.
