I've been cruising blogs, writing stuff here and leaving messages on other blogs for about 6-8 month and frankly, I still don't get a lot of it.
I read a lot of political blogs. While I don't agree with some of what I read, they're mostly all informational with some homespun humor or analogies thrown in now and again.
Sometimes I stumble onto non-political informational blogs. . . blogs about farming, raising possums, model airplanes, cooking or space travel . . . stuff. These are sometimes very informative and at other times boring and of little value. They are, nonetheless, the creation of someone interested in something outside themselves that interests them and most likely others. Most of the time, they reflect some degree of creativity and harmless interest on the part of their author. That's always a plus for a human being in my book.
The blogs I don't get, and the ones that make the least amount of sense to me are the ones that deal with nothing but or mostly about a person's personal life. WTF? Who cares about reading a step by step description about the last time you took a shit and what color it was. What would possibly make you think anyone does? How sick you are or how drunk you got last night is of no interest to me or anyone else with any degree of intellect. But wait, those blogs seem to be the ones that get the most attention. "I woke up this morning with a gigantic knot on my head and a sore ass and I don't remember what happened to me last night" seems to get rave reviews from readers, while "A concise and deliberate withdrawal of troops with a comprehensive plan of succession is mandated in Iraq" goes unnoticed.
Wow! You're posting to an internet page how sick you are. Snot is drizzling out of your nose and you keep shitting yourself. That only proves you're an idiot with a poorly created sphincter. Shut the fuck up.
Let's face it: America has been gumped. Stupidity and ignorance is valued. We have become lulled into being entertained by the mundane and the uncreative.
Sure, no one should care if some unaccomplished bozo in middle America has shit that floats of sinks, but alas, many do. What my mother said, the boss or my wife did, my son's acne problems or my girl friend's menstrual condition should go unnoticed to the outside world, but alas, all those conditions of life seem to have very interested fans in the world of blogging. Seems the more personal and graphic a blogger gets about very intimate personal conditions, the greater the fan base.
Same goes for those who give blow by blow details of their small pitiful circle of friends. Ya know, the personal interactions of some bumpkin in Milwaukee and their moronic sounding friends in Waukegan really ought not be of interest to anyone outside that sorry little circle. But again, such boring, insignificant goings on seem to garner great interest. Obviously, there is a lot of vicarious living going on here in the world of blogging.
Now I realize that many of these great thinkers have nothing else to contribute and perhaps, it's god therapy for them to review their pitiful lives by putting down on a web page, but hey, why don't you try journaling. One of these days someone is going to find out who you are and maybe even know you and it will be revealed to the world what a gigantic wanker you truly are.
Oh, and one more thing:
WTF?! You're doing it on a fucking phone. Why don't you just use the god damn thing and quit looking like you're playing some dumb video game (we'll cover them in another post). What the fuck is the matter with you people? If anyone ever "text messaged" me on my cell phone and I somehow stumbled upon it, I would hunt them down and shove their fucking tiny little keyboard equiped phone up their ignorant ass. Then I would take their index fingers and stick them up their nose so far they could scratch the back of their eyeballs and tell them "text message that you fucking weenie punk."
Yea, that's what I'd do! Fuckin eh.
Oh dear, did I say "fuck" again. Sorry Rick. I hope you're alright.
