Texts, instant messages, Facebook posts and e-mails. Inherently cold methods of communication. Because of this, tone is often lost. I have never understood why people fly off the handle over these things because I thought that was well known. When you tell a friend, via text, that you think a television show is not worth your time, and they take it as a personal attack -- there is something wrong with that. This is not an isolated incident, either. Makes me wonder the true value of such things. The "where r u?" bullshit is just that. Expressing anything beyond that, however, leads to people thinking you are questioning their intelligence because you said The Event looked like a waste of your time. What is the use? Answer: There is none. (I was tempted to save the texts to reprint here, but I did not like the idea of them clogging up space on my phone and possibly breeding more nonsense.)
Woke up with more back pain, which has been going on Friday. Most likely going to doctor next Monday and seeing what, if anything else, needs to be done. Can't imagine what he'll say, but I'm willing to listen.
Saw a Boyd Rice video this weekend. His hands wouldn't stop shaking. Makes me wonder.
The controversy of the mosque and the "holy site" of Ground Zero seems ridiculous. Isn't there a strip club close by? How does that honor the memories of those killed in 9/11? I'm not into religion, but I have no problem with people putting up churches, mosques, Satanic ritual sites ... no problem with any of it. I can see the other side of this, too. Just seems to me that they are being kind of hypocritical.
People. Yes, Mr. Rice, I sometimes agree with you.
