I feel, I feel, I feel like a morning star
A friend over on LiveJournal writes
I just spent a little time on the We Feel Fine page. Someone (or more likely a group of someones) is studying the “feelings” of people who write blogs by scanning LiveJournal, MySpace and Blogger every ten minutes for “I feel” or “feeling,” then producing the results. You can search by country, city, gender, date, and you can also find some of their conclusions, like “angriest cities.” Try the “murmer” display, for little snippets that appear on the screen: “I feel like a slug, but at least I got some good thinking done” “I feel like noone reads this.” It is a little addictive, but it’s also a touch sad, I find – I’m not sure why. Little whisps of anonymous feelings drifting across the screen.
What can one say? It took me back 25 years to our church youth group in Melmoth, Zululand, with Sister Charity, CHN, teaching the kids a song:
Shoo, fly, don’t bother me
I belong to somebody
I feel, I feel, i feel like a morning star.
