As I said the other day, it’s been quite some time since I’ve had any fake profiles of myself pop up anywhere… until recently. I think it’s a pretty safe assumption that it’s because a certain band I know recently put out their new album and are back in the spotlight and on the road.
Unfortunately, this isn’t like the MySpace days where I was put on an internal verified list and it was only a matter of one phone call/text/IM for me to get fake profiles of myself, my best friend, etc. deleted shortly after I made the call.
Facebook is a little trickier.
So, if you haven’t already, please help report this FAKE profile of me: http://on.fb.me/e9zTIW. If you wish to report them as “Fake Profile: Impersonating Me or Someone I know” and want to attach my public profile to the report, here is the URL to my REAL public FB page: http://www.facebook.com/TheSarahDope.
For those that have been asking, yes, I do have a private page (URL: sarahdope)— one that I strictly keep to close friends and coworkers only. Although Facebook nowadays does not allow new accounts to put “Dope” in their name, if someone somehow figure out a way around that with my picture… it’s not me.
While I’m on the topic of fake accounts, there are a couple fake accounts of my best friend running around (one of which is currently using a photo of us from Hawaii two years ago) here and here. Feel free to report those as “Fake Profile: Impersonating a Public Figure or Celebrity.”
Someone tried telling me that “imitation is the best form of flattery.” It’s one thing to want to be like me… but it’s a whole different story to create fake profiles of me and pretend to actually be me. Completely different… and creepy as hell.
so i've been wanting to see hawaii for a long time, but then i went into cyberstalking mode and was watching videos on your youtube and your videos about your trip to hawaii pushed me over the edge. i'm now planning a trip to hawaii with my friend (as of twelve hours ago. so this is in the baby stages). was there anything you did or saw there that you would recommend to someone else going there?
Nice!!! So far, I can only speak for Oahu, as that is the only island I have ever been on thus far (but that may change this year).
If you’re into touristy stuff, go to Honolulu and Waikiki… but if you’re like me and aren’t really into the overly touristy areas, I HIGHLY recommend the North Shore of Oahu. Parts of it can be a LITTLE touristy, but not overwhelmingly annoying, but it’s not entirely dead, either. Wonderful locals, and it’s absolutely gorgeous out there.
FOOD: You can find some great food spots in Haleiwa. Jameson’s has these killer cajun wings that I constantly crave. Matsumoto’s is the popular shaved ice place, but there are a couple of other shaved iced spots there that are just as good with less of a line (I usually order strawberry flavored shaved ice with red beans and condensed sweet milk on top). There’s a really good burger place there (I forgot the name of it), too… and Cholo’s is really tasty Mexican food. Then, of course, you can find shrimp trucks scattered all throughout Kahuku. Giovanni’s is the most popular one, but they’re all delicious.
SNORKELING: I highly suggest Shark’s Cove (during high tide) and Three Tables.
OTHER: Visit the Waimea Falls. This is where they shot part of LOST (if you’re into that show). It’s quite the hike (but great exercise) through the park to get the waterfall, but once you’re there you can kick back for a bit and even swim through it if you’d like. They provide floats if you need ‘em. At the Ranch, you can go on a horseback tour (or ATV and I think there’s also a Hummer tour) to go through different movie/TV show locations like Jurassic Park, LOST, 50 First Dates, etc. They’ll also show you Mr. Miyagi’s house.
BEACHES: Sunset, Turtle Bay, Waimea (you can also jump off of this cliff rock thing that everyone does)… and there’s another one that’s really popular for surfing, but I forgot the name of it. :(
I hope this helps, and don’t hesitate to ask me anything else! I’ll try to help as much as I can. :)
So on Tuesday we had a 24-hour live stream for the new First Strike DLC that came out on Xbox for Call of Duty: Black Ops. Treyarch’s game design director, David Vonderhaar (aka Vahn) came in to hang out and answer some questions. Here are the handful of questions Hutch gathered to ask him… and somewhere in there, according to Vahn, I make $100,000/hr. in consulting fees. This may or may not be true.
