Blogs are so fucking pointless.

Really, the only reason that someone would decide to sit down in front of his computer and start to rant about his life on a daily basis and then expect thousands of internet users to read it is extreme selfishness. Not only is that person self-centered and egotistical, but they probably also have delusions of greatness, firmly believing that they posses some sort of inherent literary talent which lays dormant just beneath the surface, just waiting to be discovered. Book deals, magazine profiles and your face on billboards all across the world is what every person who starts a blog semi-expects, whether they admit to it or not.

Instead of being weighed down with selfdoubt and apprehension - two things that would keep these pencildicks from posting their whiny emo-like "i-hurt-myself-today-to-see-if-i-still-feel" posts - they insist of bogging down the Internet with their inconsequential, vain and futile posts which nobody's going to read anyway, except for people who will leave a comment in the hopes of getting a visitor at their own blog (this generally being known as the "I'll only listen to what you have to say in order to get to speak myself" phenomenon).

Blogs and pornography are the two main reasons (also, there's online chess and cybersex) why the Internet has become another window into a world of social deprivation instead of an important intellectual tool in the field of masscommunication. Some people will say that MSN messenger, e-mail and Skype are as important in their day-to-day life as say, oxygen, and some will say that the Internet is the only way for people behind the Great Wall of China or Cuba to communicate with the rest of the globe and thusly avoiding censorship. Now, this would all be fine and well, if it weren't for the simple fact that MSN messenger, e-mails and Skype are only used by people to promote their goddamned blogs! If a chinese person behind the great wall sends an e-mail to any random person living on the western hemisphere begging him for uncensored news about the regime that holds his country in a iron-grip, the most likely answer will be "yeah yeah, sure, but you know what? Maybe you should take a peek at my blog, I just wrote about the evils of totalitarianism as well as cultural and philosophical opression, maybe you could give me some feedback on that...?".

Bloggers are people who live out some sort of fetishlike semi-exhibitionistic masturbatory fantasy in which all eyes are focused solely on them.





And that's why I love blogs.
