  36.   <guid></guid><description>hey there... i have been busy with my education or whatever so do not be suprised if the website is down for multiple days. i cant tell when that happens until someone says something to me! the server just crashes randomly. it is a simple solution thankfully; rebooting. but no i have not died or abandoned my amazing website. just wait for the summer where i will make much more progress. vidcandy is coming this year!!! i will focus on perfecting this place and the small things for a while. also make sure to change the encoding of a video if you want to upload it and actually view it on an old computer. i suggest programs like ffmpeg! thats it for now folks. im suprised a person or two actually cares about this place</description><pubDate>Wed, 31 Jan 2024 00:13:43 -0500</pubDate></item><item>
  37.   <title>The macarena</title>

  39.   <guid></guid><description>I attempted to do the macarena yesterday, only to realize that I forgot how to do the dance. It has been years since I have needed it but I thought that it would be like riding a bike and just come back to me. Now I simply miss my macarena-ing days and hope that I can remember the dance soon (I refuse to look it up). For now I only know how to do the cotton eye joe, which I did nonstop for an hour yesterday. A nice exercise, I must say.</description><pubDate>Fri, 08 Dec 2023 08:33:30 -0500</pubDate></item><item>
