Get Ready for Hypocrisy

9 April, 2005 (20:44) | Random

So all day long, I’ve been contemplating bitching about the internet. And admittedly, I probably break some of these internet idioms, so feel free to point out my hypocrisy to me, since I need to work on this stuff too. That being said, I highly recommend that none of you read this, as it’s a mass of angry drivel that works better as a way for me to vent, then as something worth looking over.

  • I fucking hate self-important people who think they’re the know-all end-all of the internet. I can use Google too. Sure, I appreciate an amusing link or an interesting site you come across, BUT IT’S NOT YOUR SITE! Do not act as though you are solely responsible for it! Give credit where credit is due. It’s no different than citing a paper you write.
  • I’m a geek, and I bask lavishly in it. That being said, I’m so fucking sick of Lord of the Rings this, Anime that. Obscure knowledge is fantastic, but it’s NOT relevant to everything! Thanks for knowing WAY TOO MUCH SHIT about supremely crappy science fiction. Congratulations! You’re the #1 Angel fan in YOUR FUCKING HOUSE! Get over it. I do not need to hear how Terri Schiavo is just like that one Vampire on Buffy, or how the pope would’ve lived if he had drank from the bottle marked “Drink Me!” from Alice in Wonderland. I do not care that the black dude from 24 would be a better President than Bush, and I could give a crap if your MegaZord would’ve won the Iraq war overnight. Fandom has its place; FAR AWAY FROM ME!In fact, while we’re at it, let’s extend this to the real world too. I do not need to hear about how the gay black guy was so, like stereotyped on The Real World when discussing the way the media discriminates against African-Americans. MTV is not the fucking media. It’s crap. Stop watching it. I do not want to hear about how you’re going through the same thing as that skinny bitch on the OC when we’re discussing the psychological impacts of Hitchcock’s Rope. Jesus.
  • Everybody and their sister has bitched about this one, but I’m sick of fucking Emo. I’m sick of people who listen to shoegazer claiming they’re punk. I’m sick of crappy whiny poetry. I’m sick of “popular” kids listing geek Emo shit in their interests. BE FUCKING ORIGINAL. There are 8 Billion people on Earth, and at least 200 Million with internet access. If you don’t realize you repeating the same fucking shit as everyone else, you’ve got some serious tunnel vision. I know you aren’t going to have everything you say be original since almost everything has been done before, but at least try and not look like the other half a million people exactly like you. The least you can do is provide a solid explanation. If you say “I love Rainbow Brite” and can’t explain why, why you talked about it, or why it’s cool, then you’ve got verbal fucking diarrhea. Anything you say or believe, you should be able to explain the importance of. If you can’t, don’t say it.
  • i hate when people type everything in lower case and never capitalize. even when starting a new sentence they neglect it. and yes, i know that you, , do it because it’s become second nature due to your job, but the rest of you have no fucking excuse (that section was in all caps except i’m not using capitals. as its been said elsewhere:

    Capitalization is the difference between helping your uncle jack off a horse and helping your uncle Jack off a horse.

  • while were at it i hate people who leave out punctuation grammar inflection and any other linguistic conventions that allow us to understand each other while writing its a pain in the ass to try and punctuate as you go because of how wrong people usually get it also you are not faulkner split up your sentences and don’t let one reach the same length as the mountain in guatamala i think its called xuaxutahun that reaches from slightly below sea level in a valley to way up high above where birds can fly and i know this because i once climbed up and could watch the birds flying below me but it was hard to breathe so i didn’t and then we came back down KNOCK IT THE FUCK OFF!

It’s not anything more than common idiocy with a touch of geek added in. And, while we’re at it, knock it off with those fucking net abbreviations. It’s not 4, it’s for. It’s not U, it’s you. You merely look like a dumbass trying to type like this.
  • This week, I went on a posting rampage for no apparent reason. Still, I only posted five entries in the last seven days and only once did I post twice in a day. Posting five times in one day if you have nothing substantial to say does not make you loved. It pisses me off. One recap a day, I can understand, even if nothing substantial adds on, but more than that, and you better have a good reason for posting, be it because it’s amusing, because you have something to discuss, or because something major happened. I know we all think we’re interesting because mankind is inherently narcissistic, even those who are self-loathing. If you’re willing to sit there and bad-mouth yourself, it’s because you think it’s interesting. It may well be, THE FIRST TIME!
  • I’m sick of people who make icons from real life, complete with friends, significant others, and statements that don’t apply on the internet. Perhaps it’s just me in my anger, but the internet is made mostly of horny single people, and we don’t need it rubbed in that you found someone. This is the same logic behind the idea that I don’t want to see you slobbering over your boy or girl while riding the bus, sitting in the park, or wandering through the library. A mention here or there, fine, but good god, show some respect for the single.

And I’m spent.

But, just for good measure, bitch bitch bitch, moan moan moan, whine whine whine.

  • Actually, you wouldn’t capitalize the uncle if it’s preceded by “my.” If you helped Uncle Jack off a horse, bully for you; you would have also helped Uncle jack off the horse, in the proper capitalization scheme, if not for the designation of him being your uncle.

  • OH NO! who told you about me and my *uncle jack*???

    i thought no one knew!

    eeeee!!!

    (and i was going to use capital letters, but… why deny my natural laziness?)

  • Cause when you work hard and make the effort, everyone’s a winner!

    At least that’s what my fortune said last time I had Chinese food.

  • I think the multiple-posts thing may very well apply to me. Terribly sorry. I get bored, and I use my journal as a place for me to express random things when I’m, say, at work, and not talking to anyone on a real level. I guess I can do a filter so you don’t need to see it all, but I think I’d just assume tell you to not real it and quit being a bitch. πŸ˜‰

    The fandom thing cracked me up, actually. I have some friends like that, and I’d LOVE to strangle them sometimes.

    The grammar/capitalization thing could sometimes refer to me. I have those “Fuck it” moments where i type like this and just don’t give a… actually, I’m still typing apostrophes, and I think I still use some punctuation. Hmm. Memo me when you see me do otherwise, eh?

    Emo kids make me cry. XD I like some punk, and it ranges from shitty emo to ridiculously “shove the motherfucking flag up your goddamn ass” type songs, though I haven’t had much to do with punk in several years. Also, I love punk fashion, but can’t pull it off. I dress like I work in an office, sadly… with my high school left over clothes (e.g., baggy guy cargo pants and spaghetti straps. I will never give up on spaghetti straps, though. I’ll be, like, 80 and wearing them.. and it’ll be GROSS).

    I’d like to have an icon with a picture of me, but yeah, icons with like… boyfriends/girlfriends? Ew.. .I don’t even know if I’ve seen anyone do that.

    Personally, I’d be happy if ten of my 15 icons were various pictures of TV/movie characters being sexy (Like my Johnny Depp icon from Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas that says SEXY, my Inuyasha “Eat your heart out” icon, and the one pictures above. Yeah. I like those.)

    Do you have a problem with <3333? Because I do that way too much. (E.g… this entry = <3333!)

  • I can’t believe you have the balls to rant in your own damn journal. How dare you?!?!

    Okay, so I don’t care really because I don’t think I do that stuff. But if I do, point it out and I’ll desist. :o)

    Also, I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but I have no idea what emo even is. Ah well, maybe I’m better off.

    Anyway, generally the things you griped about are pretty annoying and I can relate. But the killer for me was:
    Capitalization is the difference between helping your uncle jack off a horse and helping your uncle Jack off a horse. *priceless* ;o)

  • Despite my misgivings about Wikipedia being completely unregulated, I turn to them to provied you an explanation of Emo. Emo, which finds its roots in the word “emotion,” has come to mean any angsty, whiny, emotional music, artwork, or poetry that resonates with 14-year-olds who are too lazy to tie their own shoes, but blame their parents and society for not giving them freedom and happiness. In addition, Emo has incorporated a speicific style of dress, which inculdes fat-rimmed glasses, tight clothing, studded collars, belts and bracelets, spiked hair/pigtails, and a variety of other trendy Hot-Topic items. Emo, which is becoming trendy at an alarming rate, no longer applies solely to punk. Bands such as the incredibly awful and whiney Dashboard Confessional, not-quite-ska Good Charlotte, and even the indy rock Death Cab for Cutie qualify as Emo under this new dictatorship.

    To sum up what Emo is, it’s calling uncool things cool and wallowing in your own misery.

    This site is a good primer to a late-90s definition of Emo, where punk was still involved at least a little. Here is an Emo quiz. Sadly, LiveJournal has become a nest for those whiny-ass bstards.

    As for the Capitalization line, it’s not a Benny Original. likes to take credit for it, but I saw it on Bash.org long before he became enamoured with it. Whether or not that’s its origin, I doubt I’ll ever know.

  • No, no problem with <33333. It's a little annoying, but it doesn't show up enough to cause severe or even mild anger in me.

  • Wow, I got a crash course in all things emo.

    Actually, I’ve seen these kids everywhere, I just didn’t know what they called themselves. I live near a high school and I see the cute little dudes in the extremely form-fitting plaid pants, black t-shirts, black eyeliner, dyed-black half-hawk hair, with their little studded bracelets and big-ass black boots and I actually laugh and shake my head. I also love those boys who wear fifties style black jeans, ala “Grease”, with the duckass hair and everything.

    It’s cute that they think they’re so badass. Oh well, they’ll grow up and laugh at themselves someday. Or least we can hope so…

  • in regards to your rant on Capitalizations, i am opposed to unnecessary capitalizations. Like at the beginning of each sentence, or the pronoun I. when it conveys meaning i’m all for it. i’m sure Jack would agree. but when it is superfluous, why should i bother?

  • I believe rules and conventions are designed with flexibility in mind. If someone truly doesn’t want or need to capitalize, that’s their perogative. I do, however, believe that not capitalizing is annoying as all hell. Therefore, it’s a preference, not a requirement.

    As to your point about necessity, it can be argued that capitalization is necessary. We rarely read entire words or paragraphs, instead skimming over them and gaining meaning by context. Capitalization provides points of note: the start of a sentence, a proper name, acronyms, etc. In many ways, it’s another form of punctuation, which you can see I’m adament about as well.
