You all knew that a Facebook Ranting Tantrum was inevitable, so why prolong it anymore? I might as well just get it over and done with.

I opened up my email today to see that I had received a message from The Mormon Tabernacle Choir telling me to "Become a fan of the choir on Facebook!" I immediately shouted, "NO!" just to show the Mormon Tabernacle Choir that I am indeed my own boss, and I will not be giving in to those types of demands. (Take THAT! Your mind-tricks won't work on me, MoTab.)

Seriously, though, Facebook is getting a little out of control. It's a collision of far too many worlds. It's just so interesting that I can be a fan of these people:

And at the same time be a fan of this guy:

It's just plain weird!! Anyone remember the good old days when Facebook was an exclusive club for college students only? I mean, you had to have a college email address that was recognized by the "powers that be" in order to be approved. (In fact, the first time I tried to sign up with my UVSC email address, it wasn't recognized, so I wasn't allowed in.)

Now, I'm not saying that was how Facebook was supposed to say, but now it's a little strange to have everyone on it, from Grandpa Joe to Tiny Tim, and to have fan groups honoring people from President Monson to Marilyn Manson.


End of Facebook Ranting Tantrum.

(I'm sorry, but it's your fault for getting me started on this tantrum, MoTab.)
