10 shots of tequila – you’ll be right out again, no worries about hangover pains.
Or there’s the less fun but more practical, think about what the next year could and will bring and your goals for yourself and your loved ones. And how much time you’re wasting farting around with half-baked, shoot-from-the-lip opinions instead of actually achieving something meaningful in your life. That’ll sober you up.
Me, I’m just kicking back, with a mixture of both. I’m an angry person right now.
I’m upset that people get away with so much garbage and call themselves “a blogger” which used to mean “a writer” but it’s a new buzz word that somehow brings magical powers of pursuasion. And the good quality, thinking, writers get lumped in with the impolitical, political, reactionary, hate-filled, or just plain, uninformed, people of this world who want to share their pain.
Under the title of “a blogger.”
As far as I can tell, the good that blogs do (and there is good) is outweighed by the sheer weight of misinformation, stupidity and hate that exists because of it. Is there any doubt that blogs are the main engine that accelerates devisiveness, and rather than allowing people to find common ground and further inform people, instead it allows people merely to find “proof” of their positions and stick with them?
“No one” changes their mind on the Internet, because to do so would be to lose face, would be to prove you may not know everything. Trying to find truth in the blogs is like the search for the Holy Grail.
Anger in response to challenge is the overriding emotion in blogistan, blogtopia, in the blogosphere.
It’s old. It’s tiring to fight against, to drown, to struggle to breath under such a wave of misinformation masquerading as meaning. It achieves nothing but knocking in another I-Beam for the ever-growing house of hatred. This rather than love – or even merely understanding.
God, do I really want to accept that this building hatred is human nature in all its glory?
Anyone who wants to should blog. Absolutely. But by giving yourself the name “blogger,” that’s doesn’t mean you know shit or are suddenly a better person. You are the same person with the same weaknesses and the same strengths.
You call yourself a blogger, but you’re all about quantity over quality.
Except, who knew a free society meant stealing everything not nailed down. If you know a better way to steal music, video, news and pictures, you are suddenly elevated in the eyes of people who simultaneously, allegedly follow the Ten Commandments and /or the virtues of other religious tracts in their “real” life.
Of course, it could just be the alcohol talking. Can anyone forgive me?Powered by Sidelines
