|| Damn we've had this thing for days and I'm just getting to it. Had to admit that I was kinda hesitent to do this,and at first I thought it was a pretty lame idea. But then someone in the band , I forget who, said " the fans might want to know a little about you." To which I replied "what fans???" Granted, OK, we do have a few fans 99.9% of whom are kinda obligated to be so cause thier friends or family(hehehe). Which is greatly appreciated when there is no one in the bar and the sound of crickets is deafening in between songs.
Oh, by the way my spelling & grammar sucks so bear with me or fuck-off, I think I will be able to get my point across .
So back to my hesitation about starting a journal/blog what ever the fuck a blog is. Well I've seen a couple of blogs in my time and it seems that most of them are pretty typical. EXAMPLE: I'm in love with so & so or my life is so terrible that I'm going to kill myself or something to that effect (sob,sob,sob). It seems these people have instead of choosing to writing in a private journal for some sort of theraputic effect have chosen to broadcast thier feeling on the net in what I constrew to be a pathetic attempt @ sympathy. Now don't get me wrong I know that this is not the case for a great number of people, but come on. I know that life has its ups and downs but if you think you got it bad and need some reassurance that it's not as bad as you think, do me a favor will yah?
**My strategy is particularly aimed at those whom are living in the US***
Follow these 4 simple steps
1) Stop for just a minute putting down your favorite coffee related beverage.
2) Observe what is going on around you, either globaly or locally and I promiss you it won't be long before you see someone who has worse than you.
3) Shut the FUCK-UP and quit your bitching.
4) Do something proactive to change your situation, just don't bitch and expect someone to fix it for you.
We have it so good in the US!!! It's fucking unbelievable, and I'm thankful for that every day. I mean US citizens throw away so much useable food and supplies that even our homeless have it easy compared to alot of other people in many different countries.Don't get me wrong Mother Nature doesn't give a fuck were you are from she just does her thing, but, it's just that in the US there is a lot more, if any, things to scavange for food or shelter from the elements. Ok so I've ripped into pop culture brats, and to one degree they are not to blame. Being brought up with so much abundance at both their finger tips as well as my own (bet you didn't think I was going to include myself and just cop-out like my life is so fucking rough) has a tendancy to rid one of any sense of appreciation for things. TRANSLATION- If you are handed everything in life and don't have to struggle or work for it you are left with no frame of reference of just how good or easy you have it and thus to some degree all of MY bitching is not your fault, and in fact, I'm really the asshole here. I mean no one gets to choose thier socio/economic background prior to birth, do they?
