Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 14, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, whether that ‘beholder’ is another person or some narcissistic selfie-shooter staring in a mirror makes little difference. And beauty in art is also a matter for each individual, something which often cannot be explained to other people since it is such a personal matter. Comparing Constable, for […]

Twitter: Opening The Floodgates For Spam

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 13, 2015 in Internet |

There was a time when I was dismayed Twitter only allowed followers to send personal or direct messages.

Well, That Accelerated Quickly…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 5, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It seems to me, reading through thousands of different Twitter posts during quiet moments, that there are those who talk and those who just shout.

Apparently, according to People Magazine in the United States, Louis Tomlinson is about to do something no other man has managed to do before – unless you count Adam donating a rib or Arnold Schwarzenegger’s film roles – and give birth to a baby. Not only that but he is also the father of this […]

Andrew Kacsynski, a researcher for Buzzfeed Politics, has spent some time carefully researching all the times that Scott Walker, Governor of Wisconsin, tweeted about having a haircut.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 29, 2015 in Internet |

The saying Timing Is Everything has had its day. Now, with the fast-moving, interactive, shallow-concentration days of the Internet and social media, placement is everything.
