Or so it seems. I haven’t written on here for some time. The pressure of my consistently longer, more complex (well not that complex) posts weigh heavy on my shoulders. Indeed, the pressure to come up with some worthwhile contemplation that didn’t yet again involve rallying against conformity and work and blah blah blah has become a formidable challenge. Having a blog is an exercise in who you are or what you really think - if you wish to treat it so. Therefore do I think the only thing I’ve got to say is about rebelling against the norm? I hope not. I don’t know what I think about anything. I don’t think you’re ever meant to know what you think. If you did, there wouldn’t be much point in anything.
Still, a pretentious thought did occur that I might change the name of this blog to ‘That Would be an Existential Matter’ - Take that philosophy. Over 2000 years of modern thought shat upon by a rambling twat who resents his cushy job. In your face Socrates. Up yours Plato. What the fuck are you looking at Nietzsche? (No, I can’t think of any other philosophers). Anyway, that idea’s been shelved as the current name still fits and let’s face it, this blog is disappearing up it’s own arse already. I mean, compare this early post to this post a few months ago. I feel a little narcissistic referencing my own blog, but the mere act of having a blog is partly an exercise in having a toss in front of a mirror. As it were.
Still (I’m about to do it again) after this muse a few years ago, I think I’ve kinda found a purpose for this site. Let what I think spew forth in an unregulated stream of consciousness onto thy blog. Or something. Edited and censored for public consumption of course. Which in a way defeats the object. Which leads me to think there is no purpose. In fact, I’d like some comments from people who do have blogs to tell me why. Is this gonna happen? Is anyone gonna read this far down? Of course not!
I don’t even know what I’m talking about really so I’ll wrap this post up… Ok, noticing that passing off mere links as a substitute for blog posts is somehow becoming acceptable, (why write anything when you can just direct everyone to someone else’s efforts eh? This is the literary equivalent of pointing at books in the library and taking credit for them) I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon. “It’s an update” you think whilst posting a link to a story about a pigeon living in a lady’s hat. Well two can play at that unsubstantial and lazy game sunshine. Here’s my
two cents two pigeons in their respective hats:
