Two things that have been eating up my e-life lately:

1. Plurk
Plurk is a crazy version of Twitter. It’s a bit confusing at first but once you get the hang of it, you’ll find yourself using it more than you do Twitter (whose Fail Whale is getting a bit exasperating). The more you plurk and the more you respond to other people’s plurks (there’s a threading feature, so it’s like one big chatroom/message board in there), the more karm you get. As your karma goes up, you get more emoticons and more abilities (you can change your timeline name and your username). I really suck at explaining things, so come join the fun here (yes, that’s my referral link, plz use).

2. Popmundo

Popmundo is an online roleplaying game and community where the players strive for fame in a virtual music industry. The game is played in real time and the game keeps on going even when you’re not logged on.

Popmundo is not a traditional video game with animated graphics and sound. It’s more of a imaginative management game and playful community where you log on a couple of times a week to work on your career.

You never play against the computer. All characters you encounter in the game are played by real people across the globe.

Ever since I uninstalled Sims 2 from my laptop (I need more RAM!), I’ve been looking for a game to satisfy my God complex. Popmundo isn’t exactly like that and it’s not really as fun, but it keeps me entertained. Since the game is in real time, it’s a bit slow and fame isn’t instant (I entered the game 23 days ago and my character Ayanna Wishart is a bottom-dwelling nobody from New York City)— it actually requires “hard work”.

Also, I want a viewsonic monitor.
