Hit or Miss

Real-World Weblogs.

Kind of. Two members of the New Orleans cast of THE REAL WORLD, Matt (who uses the “[email protected]” contraction that I used to have on my website) and Julie (I wonder what BYU thinks of her having a website. Are Mormons allowed to use the internet?), use Scribble to run the journals on their websites.

Thanks for the URLs on the Real World weblogs! Jeez, Matt’s commentary on each episode is going to add a whole new dimension. Nearly half of the group have webpages this time- previously I only knew of Joe Patone who had one WHILE his show was running. Judd Winnick has a pretty good one now, but it was started years after his series. Julie seems to have undergone some changes in the course of filming- the person that comes across in the first few RW episodes doesn’t seem like the same person who inhabits her webpage!

How do you find this stuff? Serendipity? You seem to just have a knack for finding such esoteric material! Crazy…

At any rate, to answer you question about Julie… Yes. Mormons are allowed to use the internet. Mormons aren’t Amish… I’m Mormon, and I use the internet (and although that statement is just chuck-full of logical errors, you get the idea). There’s even an official web site for the Church.

Of course, your question may have just been a witty commentary on Julie’s naiveness: which seems to be the only part of her character that the folks over at MTV want to examine. It’s a shame, really. I imagine that she’s a much more complex and engaging person than the TV show portrays.

End of sermon. =)

Now either you’ve got one helluva text parser that formatted the link, or you were kind enough to edit the text for me… either way: pretty cool.

If it’s the latter and not the former, is there something I should be doing to properly format any links I might include? Should I just surround the reference text in a standard anchor tag?

Thanks!
