Away I went to begin a new series of long winded commentaries, this time focusing on positivity and growth!
As it turns out, for all that my attitude has improved to where I try to maintain a positive outlook, my demeanor is still dour and, frankly, I have more fun speaking in this voice. If I am not having fun with the writing, how can I expect you to have fun with the reading?
And so I return to the wild tundras of my youth and, more importantly, I return to "Sometimes I Think..."
This picture has nothing to do with anything other than my wanting to have some sort of icon to flash about when I announced having a new post up.
I think the goal this time around is to be thought provoking, engaging and, above all, entertaining. I
still want this to be a forum of sorts so please, share your thoughts and comments. Pretty much anything goes and on the posts where I decide there are rules, I will let you know what they are. (You will see what I mean when I post the next one. Hopefully it will garner some manner of reaction.)
Just a reminder for any returning readers, and a warning for any late comers: My blog, my opinions. I don't represent any other individuals or organizations. I am here as a means of performance so if you don't care for something I have to say, feel free to get the fuck out. Or better yet, say so. Use reason to persuade me. Call me a douchebag and go off and pout in a corner somewhere. I don't give a shit. Just do something!
When it comes right down to it, I do have thoughts and opinions and if I have chosen to share them here, it is because I think they have merit and are worth sharing. If you disagree with me, by all means, attempt to sway me to your point of view. I am not a fickle man but if I am wrong or misinformed, you have a duty to bring it to my attention and the attention of everyone else who may be here nodding their heads in agreement with me. For fuck's sake, do something, say something... Just get off your ass and have a bloody damned thought.
Initially, I had intended this post to be a simple announcement of my intention to return to posting on this blog. As it turns out I actually have a few things to say so if you are still here, keep reading.
I am tired of this bullshit, passive aggressive nonsense. Facebook, (which I secretly loathe and use primarily as a means to announce when I am making a post here in an effort to gather an audience,) is full of people posting about their favorite political candidate and why the opposing personality is the wrong choice. (And I don't give a fuck if that last sentence was a run-on or that this one began with a conjunction. (School House Rocks FTW!)) More to the point, it is full of idiots following along without checking for themselves and without doing the research to make an informed decision of their own. people just swallowing whatever they are told and parroting it back. It is as if whoever has the loudest voice is the one who will be believed!
Actually, maybe there is something to that after all...
What I mean is, remember when I said before that anything goes? I lied. keep your political views to yourself and off my comments unless they are expressly invited. That shit makes me angry and I have put a lot of work into not being angry all the time.
I don't give a shit if you are a democrat or a republican. I don' think there has been a good choice in my lifetime and I despair of there ever being one. Of course I think one evil is the lesser of the choices available to me but that is my lookout and if I have to leave the country because shit has gone just too damned far, that is my concern as well. There will be NO politics on this blog. Unless I change my mind and then, may whatever gods you pray to have mercy on your soul. There will, however, be plenty of discussion on philosophy and possibly even spiritualism or religion.
If I misspell something, let me know so I can correct it. If my grammar is off, blow it out your ass. I will speak here the way I damned well want to speak to make my voice show as I intend for it to. Deal with it.
I don't want to say anymore here right now so I am not going to. I will be back soon with an attempt to breath some thought into some of you. Watch for it!
(Traditionally I have ended these posts with some kind of a quote. I haven't decided yet whether to resume that practice so for now, we can consider this a place holder.)
