Oh here’s a meta-moment for you. I’m thinking about blogs: I’m writing my thoughts about this on my blog. In doing so, I’m creating a new category called ‘Truth Diary’. That’s sort of in opposition to my ‘Liar’s Digest’ and while I think I’ll be waxing philosophic here, it’s not quite ‘Newman Logic’ because this will reveal truths about an individual rather than muse about Life, The Universe and Everything. And by the way if you have a fundamental truth about yourself you want to reveal in blog form contact me.
I remember back when the blogosphere was the next big thing. Back before the Huffington Post, Perez Hilton and Stuff White People Like they talked about this revolution: people would be sharing themselves with the world, their lives would be broadcast and then scrutinized and the most popular blogs would be the most honest ones. That didn’t seem to happen.
Don’t miss it! Today only, the criminal underworld is having a garage sale: a market on the shores of the Black Sea. Setting aside their differences, members of the Yakuza, Triads, United Nations, Hell’s Angels, Russian and Italian mobs etc have put aside their differences to bring you this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Need spare pieces for a kneecap? Look no further. We’ve got everything you need, such as Sun Tzu’s lesser known work: the ‘Art of the Drive by’. If you’re in need of cash, all of our vendors can spot you: prime plus 1000.
Jimmy here: sorry I didn’t return your text/email/call/tit flash in the club, but I was busy getting laid i.e. winning. I might get back to you later, if I need a booty call when my girlfriend’s out of town. She’s a model, so she goes out of town a lot which means that you might be winning sometime soon. Keep in mind though, that I have an epic contact list. Don’t worry, it’s not organized alphabetically, it’s ordered by the magnitude of what I imagine you can do with your lips.
Of course, making out with your girl friend can only help your case. But don’t think it settles matters: there’s all kinds of trampy ways for hot girls to get my attention. And really, that’s what I’m all about, getting attention: if you give me the right amount and I’m drunk enough, things will naturally progress from there.
Based on my personal observation of human interaction these days, pessimism is running rampant. It seems to me that a great many people blame ‘the world’ for their current circumstances, presupposing that their current circumstances are bad and comparing the situations of poorly defined others who have ‘better’ lives and/or the imagining of another era (that never existed) in which things would be ‘better’.
I’ve never really understood this idea of blaming everyone else for not ‘getting ahead’. It seems to me that if you were to give up on a goal because it’s too hard to achieve due to the obstacles ‘others’ have placed in your path, then you’ve traded a difficult task for an insurmountable one: how is whining about it going to change the world around you to suit your needs? Isn’t it easier to circumvent the obstacles in your path rather than to point at them hoping that someone will remove them for you? In addition to that, it is necessary sometimes to acknowledge that an obstacle cannot be removed or a goal cannot be reached and move on to something else.
