People come up to me all the time and ask “Why blog? Everyone knows newspapers are the future.” Despite the truth of that statement, I feel that I can reach a broader audience by posting my thoughts, ideas, and ramblings on something called the Internet.
My goal is simple, to get you to think. Whether you agree or disagree is irrelevant. Half of the things I say I don’t truly believe. It’s good to argue for the other side on many issues though, to get in a frame of mind that your enemy may have. I like arguing and above that I like to win my arguments, even when they’re not true. In a past life I think I was a lawyer and a politician. A “Lawyetician” as they’re known today. In this life however I am neither of them. I don’t vote and I’ve only seen three episodes of Law & Order. That still doesn’t mean I am invaluable to society.
Simply put, my mission with this blog is to speak truths, expose lies, and point out how absurd society can be. We’re all bigots, snobs, and self-righteous. If it isn’t an issue that has touched us closely, we could careless. We’re all guilty of it and that’s what makes this world great, or horrible. I haven’t decided yet. Maybe with the help of this blog I will come to a conclusion.
The most important reason of all for starting this is to clear my head. Sometimes I have trouble writing more important things such as screenplays about talking fecal matter or novels about writers of screenplays about talking fecal matter. It’s a place for me to vent until I can afford therapy. It’s a place where you can look and waste a few moments of your day on. If I’m lucky, maybe I’ll convince you to come back. If not, I’m proud that I’m wasting space on the Internet. Eventually all of that will run out and I will be partly to blame. For that, I feel humbled to be a part of destroying the most powerful device ever created.
