Sorry about the bad old cellphone pics. I was at a Big Lots a few years ago browsing through the candle aisle when I came across this “Fresh Cut Grass” scented candles. I do not like the smell of fresh cut grass at all, but was curious to know if it really smelled like fresh cut grass. I took a whiff and was pretty mortified because it smelled like dirt and grass with maybe some wax.
The title field and the big Post Editing Area are fixed in place, but you can reposition all the other boxes using drag and drop. You can also minimize or expand them by clicking the title bar of each box. Use the Screen Options tab to unhide more boxes (Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Custom Fields, Discussion, Slug, Author) or to choose a 1- or 2-column layout for this screen.
Title – Enter a title for your post. After you enter a title, you’ll see the permalink below, which you can edit.
Post editor – Enter the text for your post. There are two modes of editing: Visual and Text. Choose the mode by clicking on the appropriate tab. Visual mode gives you a WYSIWYG editor. Click the last icon in the row to get a second row of controls. The Text mode allows you to enter HTML along with your post text. Line breaks will be converted to paragraphs automatically. You can insert media files by clicking the icons above the post editor and following the directions. You can go to the distraction-free writing screen via the Fullscreen icon in Visual mode (second to last in the top row) or the Fullscreen button in Text mode (last in the row). Once there, you can make buttons visible by hovering over the top area. Exit Fullscreen back to the regular post editor.
Keyboard users: When you’re working in the visual editor, you can use Alt + F10 to access the toolbar.
You can upload and insert media (images, audio, documents, etc.) by clicking the Add Media button. You can select from the images and files already uploaded to the Media Library, or upload new media to add to your page or post. To create an image gallery, select the images to add and click the “Create a new gallery” button.
You can also embed media from many popular websites including Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and others by pasting the media URL on its own line into the content of your post/page. Please refer to the Codex to learn more about embeds.
Several boxes on this screen contain settings for how your content will be published, including:
Publish – You can set the terms of publishing your post in the Publish box. For Status, Visibility, and Publish (immediately), click on the Edit link to reveal more options. Visibility includes options for password-protecting a post or making it stay at the top of your blog indefinitely (sticky). Publish (immediately) allows you to set a future or past date and time, so you can schedule a post to be published in the future or backdate a post.
Format – Post Formats designate how your theme will display a specific post. For example, you could have a standard blog post with a title and paragraphs, or a short aside that omits the title and contains a short text blurb. Please refer to the Codex for descriptions of each post format. Your theme could enable all or some of 10 possible formats.
Featured Image – This allows you to associate an image with your post without inserting it. This is usually useful only if your theme makes use of the featured image as a post thumbnail on the home page, a custom header, etc.
Send Trackbacks – Trackbacks are a way to notify legacy blog systems that you’ve linked to them. Enter the URL(s) you want to send trackbacks. If you link to other WordPress sites they’ll be notified automatically using pingbacks, and this field is unnecessary.
Discussion – You can turn comments and pings on or off, and if there are comments on the post, you can see them here and moderate them.
A few years ago when I went to an American dollar store, I came across these dissolving mint paper-like strips, (like Listerine’s). I was curious where it was made from and it turns out that it was made from Japan. Being a fan of nifty Japanese candies, stationary and technologies, I had to try them.
When I was young, it confused me to hear things like “I want to eat Chinese.” because I never said “I want to eat Americans.” It got even stranger hearing people say “I smell Chinese” and it made me wonder if I smelled like “Asian.”
II didn’t have a good camera on me, so the pic doesn’t look so good.?Friend of mine visited from Hawaii, so we decided to get together at a Spanish restaurant that happened to sell “Warm Octopus Salad.”
She really isn’t, but Park Ji Yoon’s song is titled that way, and she dresses both like a man and a woman, in a bizarre music video that sounds as catchy and bizarre as it looks. It just makes me think that zombies should be popping out any moment and dancing all funky.
This is officially the most bizarre commercial I have ever seen. I can’t remember how I came across this Axe deodorant Commercial.. I think it was a Facebook ad. Words really can’t describe it. But this is not the only one they made.
So I came across this bizarre article a few months ago about a Reverend Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church who claims and preaches “God Hates Lady Gaga.” There is an active anti-Lady Gaga movement going on.
You’ve probably heard by now of the volcano Iceland, (that nobody can really pronounce), that erupted a few weeks ago and held up the airlines. Ever wonder what Icelandic music sounds like The Icelandic language and music sounds very unique, but very awesome.
“Rejected – Best Oscar Award Winner Movie” This is officially one of the most bizarre animated cartoon clips I have ever seen in my life. My friend in our college years introduced it to us. It really doesn’t make any sense, but it’s oddly hilarious.
The first time I heard this “Olio” by The Rapture was on Yahoo Music’s “Sweaty Indie Dance Party” station. I thought it was a very unusual song, with high pitched vocals that’s dramatically bizarre, but I really liked it.
The first time I heard of Lady Gaga was before she became really famous and went viral all over the radio and the media. She made a bizarre performance in Vietnam during the Miss Universe 2008 pagaent for her song “Let’s Dance.” The above clip shows the swimsuit competition portion of the pageant, where the contestants dance, then do the cat walk in between the song. Very creative.
