I am a Los Angeles-based twentysomething. I have a profession, and I have a secret life in music, and this blog isn't about any of that. I like Blogger because I can't read what you're thinking.

Man, daytime television is fucking de-press-ing. I felt like a total loser. I also felt like the kid who can't play basketball because he broke his leg and is obligated to still attend games. I really do not like missing work, and not because I'm a workaholic (I'm not), it's because I don't like being behind on anything. And also because adults are fucking babies who need babysitters.

Everyone's got a boner about Patton Oswalt's diatribe on how the internet's tainted true geekery. Its backbone is, "No modern geekery is true because everyone consumes anything they want at light speed, making them faux otakus."

The internet has become a holy grail of inspiration to those who use it (not abuse it) wisely. And I'd also argue there are tons of people who consume internet goods at the same pacing and salivation as those who got mail-ordered junk in the '90s. Simply pigeonholing all internet users as crass consumers and fast disposers is lazy. Patton comes off as a whiny old man who's mad that the Establishment has successfully ultra-capitalized on all the things he and his best friends used to be early adopters of.

THIS.


Sometimes, Family Guy just nails it.
