As promised in yesterday’s Facebook post, I’m here to share from a treasure trove of forgotten goodies I found the other day…
Since my Blog Empire has not been a success as a Blog Empire, it is becoming more like an electronic scrapbook that I’m compiling for no one in particular, which may be found one day by an electronic archaeologist and cause much delight.
I know everyone is swept away in the clutter of their own lives, the wonder of their own treasure troves. Maybe some of you are solving your own mysteries! But most likely, you are busy finding money by selling your time. Or raising children–the biggest creative project anyone can undertake. Even more big than an undertaker’s undertaking. Hi-yaaaah!
So I am no longer sad that I am a failure as a Blog Emperor, and that you are an audience of busy busy asses. I was sad about it for awhile.
Right now I am sad about 2 things: Twitter & Xmas.
I had to abandon Twitter (maybe temporary, maybe forever). It was a once-beloved place where I could chat amongst my favorite celebrities whilst being ignored by them at the same time. I could pretend to be famous. I could shout & shout & shout into the void of the internet and everyone & no one would hear.
But none of that was benefitting my Blog Empire, as it was supposed to. And Tweeting began to stress me out. I didn’t do it right, for one thing. Tweeting is a very outdoor, mobile thing. There’s nothing interesting about tweeting from your house every morning at the same time. That is more of a Facebook thing.
It was all too immediate. Even following people like Amanda[Palmer] & Gerard[Way] was too much. They are good, fun Tweeters (unlike Kate Moennig or Mink Stole >: [ ) But it stressed me out for some reason. I started to feel inadequate & jealous, of their fame, of their social ease, of their talent!!! And I'm not usually a jealous person. I felt a lot of "peer pressure" there, which is odd to feel at 45.
So…Twitter…off the list for the time being…as is….XMAS!!!
For me now, Xmas is a celebration of friends and time. We end up seeing more of our friends at this time of year & that is always nice. And the Moonchild has vacation time & that is always nice. What more does it need to be? Driving? No. Flying? No. Buying? No. Lying to kids? No. Proselytizing? No. Jesusing around? No.
Bourbon Balls? YES!
Eating crab legs? Yes.
Shooting things? Yes.
So, archaeologists, enjoy this art. Next time I will have more colorful stuff from the 90′s & 00s.
