As I sit here writing an article for the first time in months, I realize the truth of the matter is between the daily ho-hum routine of my life I’ve just become bored with pretty much everything and when I am in that state it’s hard to find something to write about. It’s not really that I’m out of ideas as much as the fact that everything is used up and we live in a world where creativity might actually be dead in most regards.
I’ve said it before in other articles and I will say it again, the Internet becoming so mainstream ruined pretty much everything. It’s difficult to come up with good ideas because they all get used up rather quickly by somebody else. Thanks to things like Twitter, it feels like a fastest finger, beat-the-buzzer round to be the first to say something before 28 of the people you are following chime in with the exact same thing. The winner gets “quoted” (we know this now as Re-Tweeted) by the people following them, and that’s pretty much that. The problem is that at some point, everyone became exactly the same on the Internet so no viewpoint is really unique or different anymore. Whereas it used to be the exception to be the insensitive shock-value prick, it’s now the rule. Every single person on the Internet seems to be trying to out-asshole everybody else. The problem with that is that the hole in our asses produces “shit,” and thus everything is of a shitty half-ass quality. I kind of liked it better when I was the ONLY person who had the gimmick of being a rude, insensitive, smartass – mainly because it’s not so much an Internet “gimmick” in an attempt to get followers, or hit-rate or E-Fame – I’m actually that outspoken in the real world.
I was a motherfuckin’ Jedi Master of being a dickhead. I had my own fuckin’ Padawan and everything.
Now everybody is EXACTLY like Johnny Landin and I. Thanks Internet, you ruined it.
Above: Friday Night.
Of course the Internet didn’t just kill creativity by becoming so mainstream but it also ruined social interaction turning us into a bunch of hermit crab/turtle people living inside the giant shells we call our room or our house and rarely ever interacting with people because we’re too busy posting on Twitter, texting people, or generally not interacting in the real world in any form or fashion.
These two idiots, for example, are texting each other even though they are right next to each other. This is because we’re getting to the point people don’t even know how to speak to each other properly unless it’s in 140 characters or less. It’s getting to the point “meeting people” becomes a foreign concept. I’ve known certain people on a personal level for several years that seem to have no intention of taking the opportunity to meet me in person and act like it’s the most foreign concept they’ve ever heard of. Meeting people? Absolutely preposterous!
Eventually it will get to the point we don’t even actually have sex and wear the stupid virtual reality headsets from the movie Demolition Man when we want to have an orgasm. No thank you. I absolutely hated the Virtual Boy. I don’t want to have to use one to get off.
Speaking of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and others action icons, gone are the days of the “action hero,” or the guy who saves the day. There are no Supermen in this world because everybody is intended to be a shade of deep gray, which I referenced in an earlier article – Bad is Good, and Good is Obsolete.
Okay, maybe Superman’s a bad example because he’s always been a dick and we simply didn’t notice. However it cannot be denied that the more you do the right thing the more you are hated for doing so because you’re a pushover, pussy, and a doormat. Society has deemed that people like this should be stepped on and walked all over until the point they become an “Internet Asshole” and steal my fucking gimmick. The only way you can be manly is by being a dick but of course manliness in general is completely discouraged because of the sensationalism of Man-Boys such as Justin Beiber and One Direction.
This is what women are supposed to be attracted to in 2012? That seems to be what the Internet tells us as there isn’t at least 12 times a day that evil thing known as Twitter isn’t filled with trending topics talking about sexing these Man-Boys up. Sadly it does somewhat make sense based on my earlier comments about the Internet. If you spend all your time living in the digital world, one of two things is going to happen – you’re either going to become fat and sloth-like or you’re going to become skinny, malnourished, and unable to so much as lift a bag of groceries without help. I bet these kids sit down when they urinate too. When did this become a sex symbol to the point chicks are doing shit like THIS?
…And the worst part of this photo is the fact that it’s not even shocking anymore because things like this are posted 500,000 times a day to the point that most of us are completely desensitized to pretty much anything and everything. Many of you not only didn’t flinch, but couldn’t even find it amusing in a shock value way and probably reacted along the lines of “it is what it is" because shit like this is now considered normal behavior. I caught my sister doing the same thing two days ago.” If that is your reaction, you’re already dead inside and your sister should probably receive psychiatric counseling. We live in a world where sending someone a drawing of a woman being fucked by a loaf of bread is normal behavior.
Thank you for that Marion. It’s as if I didn’t hate life enough already before this picture was sent to me. The worst part is nothing we seem to do can break the cycle at all – everything is used up to the point that even Hollywood wants to make sure we are fully aware the world is out of ideas, creativity, originality, or anything that involves not being a drone.
Do we seriously live in a world where the best thing that we can come up with creatively is to make a movie based on a fucking board game? How did this happen? Why did this happen? The answer is the fact that everything is used up. If they’re not making half-assed movies based on concepts that have no business being turned into movies, they’re making remakes of movies that have no business being remade.
I don’t even hate Collin Farrell but was there a need to remake Total Recall? Life has gone into reruns and it’s pathetic . And it’s to the point if you ever come up with anything new or original or interesting, it’s given sequel after sequel after sequel to the point that it’s not even remotely enjoyable anymore. Videogames have also seemingly jumped the shark as we get the same rehash title year after year after year and the brainwashed drones buy every version like sheep:
SERIOUSLY WHY THE FUCK ARE ALL OF YOU BUYING THE EXACT SAME VIDEOGAME EVERY FUCKING YEAR? And you won’t even play it with friends at home because once again actually leaving your house is considered something you only do when you need groceries or toilet paper, so once again you’ll sit at home… on your ass – and do absolutely NOTHING. So I ask you – what happened to our world? What happened to our society? Has it really gotten to the point that experiencing the world, or trying something new, or doing ANYTHING at all is BAD?
Fuck it, I could go out but nobody is out there, kind of like something out of I Am Legend where Will Smith is the last man on earth, so I think I’m going to stay inside and masturbate to pictures of Kaitlyn.
I feel better now. Actually, no, I feel lonely and miserable. Maybe I’ll go jerk off while wearing a Virtual Boy after all.
