Things that I hate/love/am guilty of myself.
Here is a list of things that I think about that either bug me or enthuse me or both or worse.
People who are flaky. You know the type. They'll make plans with you and then drop them at the last minute. Or not even notify you if they aren't going to show up. Flaky people bug the shit out of me, but I also realize that I am not immune to flakiness. In fact, I am worse than the apple pies at McDonald's. I don't want to be flaky but I think it's just a symptom of our time. Everybody is pretty selfish, but we need to be right? I don't know, who cares?
Television is really annoying. Unless I'm watching rap videos. But, it starts sucking again if the videos are on MTV and words like "wet," "trigger," "tipsy" (are you fucking kidding me? tipsy!?), and "trees" get blanked out. Also, the product censorship on MTV is irritating when it obscures t-shirt designs and makes the song "Vans" so bleeped out one would think it's the dirtiest, most obscene song ever. "Man, I'm from B-town and all my %^&* get like, Man, we be sportin *^£@% and we throw away *^$%£. If you wanna get right, stop buyin those *&@£%. Get some new **%$$ *&££$ and you'll bet you look icey." Like, what is this song about when you blank out the subject matter? Are they talking about coke? Hookers? Huh???
I guess this is why the internet is so great. Any music video you could ever imagine is on youtube. Uh-huh.
Which brings me to the internet. Isn't it so bizarre? I love it, but I get weirded out when I think about it too much. Information and access. Who is looking at my shit? Even if something is designated "private," it's still hackable. The idea of someone reading my e-mails bugs me out so bad. Another funny/weird/amazing/awful thing is the plethora of myspace refernces prevalent in non-internet culture. I watched several music videos in the past week which gave a nod to the myspace universe (adding/editing friends, looking at other people's profiles, sending messages). Just watch that Bow Wow/Chris Brown video "Shorty Like Mine" and also Pharrell's "That Girl." There are few others that I've seen for which I can't remember the exact artists, but it's so weirdo. Myspace is so huge.
Christmas. I just hate Christmas. People go so nuts over it, and go into debt in order to buy tons of bullshit. This is such a sophomoric and ranty attitude, I know, which is why I don't "protest" against Christmas and just let it happen around me, but I don't like the holiday so I don't celebrate. I will make you a card, probably, that says that you're my friend and I appreciate you, but I will not spend money on useless junk.
I think I had a dream that I ate meat last night. It was really gross. And then I smelled pork as I rode my bike up 11th street (Porky&Porkie). It smelled what I thought burning humans would smell like. I almost wretched. Eating pigs is like eating the family dog. But whatever, do what you want. I'm not going to say anything.
Who the fuck is this paging me at 5:46 in the morning, crack of dawnin, now I'm yawning
