When I was in ninth grade, my social studies teacher told us that, one day, we would be able to personalize our news, so we would only receive information on topics we cared about. This was when I was 14, in 1991, before the widespread use of the internet (at least for me).

With all the self-righteousness of a well-read liberal bitch, I raised my hand and told my teacher that his suggestion was horrifying, and anyone who filtered their information was socially irresponsible and unforgivably ignorant.

Nineteen years later, I get a text message whenever Rancid's store has new merch, and every time the bass player from The Used tweets a picture of his dog.
