Ug, Reading more about censorship
Its always really funny to read about how people think that US attempts at censorship are terrible. I mean I don’t like the attempts at it, but you’d think we’re the worst country out there or something. Reading about Initial UN conventions on Censorship, and maybe the journal I’m reading is biased (I don’t feel like it is) But damn, I’m happy I don’t...
Things that bother me
When people are sensationalist, even for something that I am on their side for. All you’re doing is weakening the argument. I was looking at the #CISPA tag, and seriously, some people are ridiculous: CISPA passed! Are you going to let the gov’t stomp all over you? Don’t wait for Auschwitz to come. The time is now. A death camp is not the same as surveillance. Its a violation...
Sometimes the Republican Party confuses me so much
Its understood already that for the most part, The Democratic Party is all big government, trying to increase the power of the federal. Great, and I was supposed to be able to depend on the Republican party to counteract that with defending my liberties. Sadly, it seems that even though regulation of arms is an issue of liberty, regulation of the internet, even at the expense of non-malicious...
One day I'll reflect on the days I'm living now
And laugh about how I was so worried. How so much that I thought was important wasn’t, and that there is a lot past what I’m seeing. Waiting for that day.
I’m going to sleep. Even though I have finals next week, I feel particularly artsy and want to make a shit ton of things. I actually wrote down the fucking sequence in which my damn May Day mini-doc will go, so I can actually start working on it. It’ll probably be out in May, can’t figure out exactly how I want to go about releasing it, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get...
Talking to myself
Me: hi, this is new
Cynic: not really, you pull this a lot, attempting to express yourself in different mediums, different spins, but in the end it's never honest. You lie, mostly to yourself hiding behind these things
Me: can you shut up for a bit? We like to lie to ourselves. We have to lie to ourselves. We can't always say that honesty always works. Because that's what hope, belief, love and other things rely on. You lie enough about something, it'll come true. Sometimes lying is right, and living in a world where black and white says this is right and this is wrong doesn't work.
Cynic: what about your little list of things you would and wouldn't do. Those are lines aren't they? You make your own blacks and whites
Me: I do. I'm a hypocrite, I'm not always honest, I don't have any particular redeeming thing to say that I'm at least this, or you gotta give me that I'm that. I'm inconsistent. I realize that.
Cynic: Now what?
Me: Well I'm just checking to see that you're done. Because I'm aware of my flaws. I know them everyday. And I dwell on them. I want to keep myself honest about a lot of them, the ones that I think are really problematic. I know for example that I'm a coward.
Coward: You're practical
Arrogance: No, you're a coward. If you have something to say, then your'e supposed to say it.
Cynic: Thats not what you always say.
Arrogance: I know thats not what I always say. But I shouldn't be a coward. I shouldn't fear these things that really don't mean anything. There is no life and death situation. Even if a lot of the time I think that there are things more important than that.
Cynic: more important than life and death?

Things that don't make sense
1. I’m still awake 2. I’m waking up early 3. I’m watching useless youtube videos when I promised myself I wouldn’t just for today 4. Apparently I get 2.7 MB down and .68 MB up on my wifi, but my faux 4g gets me 4.88 MB down and 2.49 MB up 5. I’m testing my internet speeds at 2:44 AM 6. I’m going to go to sleep now 7. the point above me...
The Casual Vacancy
So I’m sort of scouring the internet, because I’ve been off of it for three days now, reading everything. I thought hey, if I don’t see something important/news worthy I’ll hear about it from someone. Apparently not? GUYS, JK ROWLING ANNOUNCED DATE, TITLE, AND STORYLINE OF HER NEW BOOK* and like no one said anything about it. if this was 2010 or w/e, people would have...
I have to stop that. Less thinking, more just doing. Thank you HIMYM for teaching me what I’m supposed to be doing in life. Now just how to stop thinking without getting intoxicated…
Some people just do it wrong
And I’m one of those people it seems.
Dear Instagram Users:
So a bomb dropped this week because Android users can now use fancy filters and Instagram like their iOS friends. People are also getting really cocky about it too. I actually saw people stating that now Instagram has gone to shit because the common android user can use it. Um, get over yourselves. Instagram in general isn’t my favorite service because all it is is a fancy filter. and a...
There is an angelic voice singing next door
Should I go find out whose making it?
Does anyone want to go on a Tech-Fast with me?
Ok, So apparently I use up a lot of my time with the internet and stuff. I don’t think I should live without it, but I think I’ve gotten to the point to where its messing with a lot of things, and I don’t like it. So although I technically can’t completely let go of everything, due to school work/possible emergencies, I’m having a system set up for me to start on...
