Look, I’m not saying I’m right all the time. Truth is, I’m not.
Hate is a very strong word to use, but it’s a strangely accurate term that describes how I feel about the absolute fucking stupidity that I see every day. I wake up in the morning, realize how disappointed I am that I actually didn’t die in my sleep, and proceed to check whatever notifications are waiting on my phone. Sometimes, it’s news alerts for local traffic conditions; other times it’s BREAKING NEWS about something over which there are no fucks to be given. Normally it’s these lack of fucks to be given that set me off.
After having worked with the public for nearly a decade and having enduring enough of their blatant ignorance, I decided to put together a concept of a blog site just for a fun little side project. Maybe if I grew the audience, I could throw some advertisements on there and make a few bucks from it, but honestly, I never really had the drive to finish the site. I was doing the free WordPress site but just gave up.
Then, some shit happened in my life that isn’t worth describing on this page and I decided to go all-in with the site. I bought the dotcom and just sat on it for well over a year, with no real intention of doing anything with it because I didn’t think I’d have the audience. So much for that all-in mentality…
I work an office job and sit at a desk all day, so up until recently, I streamed the Opie and Anthony show on SiriusXM to my phone and listened to 4 hours of that nonsense every day. On other occasions, I’d listen to some podcasts that were relevant to my interests, like Penn Jillette’s “Penn’s Sunday School” or “The Imaginary Friends Show Podcast.” The Opie and Anthony show had its own podcast as well that I’d stream to listen to some older bits that were still very amusing. Podcasting seems easy enough… I have the voice for it, the logic and quick thinking abilities, the research skills, etc., so fuck it… why not? Oh, wait… because everyone is doing it.
(By the way, I know Ant was fired from SiriusXM, which is why I stopped listening. I fully support the boys but I can’t support a shit company like SiriusXM for their disastrous business practices.)
I already had the Twitter and Facebook accounts active and trolled quite a bit on the Tweety… even got myself blocked by that dumbass Robert Zimmerman, Jr. Apparently, calling him an asshole was too much for his delicate little ears. Go tell your bro to come at me. Pussy.
I saw enough blatant exercising of idiocy on Twitter that weren’t able to receive a response in 140 characters or less and since TwitLonger sucks, I knew it was time to get serious with the site. I dumped a TON of money into some podcasting hardware and audio software and finally got everything working to a point that made me quite satisfied, so I set up all of the hosting through my site provider and brought myself online in the beginning of August 2014. The war had officially begun.
So why? What’s the point?
Because the shit that I stand for is actually some seriously important shit that society in general needs to understand. There are a couple of branches of society that need to be throat punched because of their ignorance and inability to understand common logic. Not common sense, but common LOGIC. There are so many times when I read a news article or quick little blurb that just makes me facepalm so hard that I end up with the adult equivalent of shaken baby syndrome. The lack of any ability to see reason and logic is just astounding.
So… if nothing else, this is just a feeble attempt at trying to spread some logic and critical independent thinking ability to society. If you can’t see or follow that logic, fine… be that lemming who follows your beloved leaders off that cliff. I’ll help push.
Finally, there is a lighter side to me and my cause. I do try to bring comedic relief and entertainment to your eyes and ears, even if that comedic relief is at my own expense. Sometimes the humor is crude and uncalled for, other times it’s topical and will even keep me laughing for an awkwardly long amount of time. Either way, you laughed at my dumb ass, and my job is done.
