I've realized that during my recent neglect of my LiveJournal, I wrote several entries in my MySpace blog. Therefore, to compensate for my lack of entries, I shall post them in here as well, for no better reason than to revive my poor, poor LJ.
MySpace Entry Numero Uno:
So I have recently received several invitations to join MySpace groups that are focused on being a so-called "MySpace Hottie". Personally, I don't feel very comfortable accepting such invitations. Aside from my reservations of being labeled as such, my main argument against them is the simple fact that a group based on being physically attractive leaves nothing to be discussed. For example, I am a member of several (alright, more than several) Green Day groups on MySpace. In these groups, the members talk about Green Day. I am also a member of several politically-oriented groups on the site. In these groups, the members discuss politics and current events (I am aware these points are obvious, now pipe down because I am getting to the real point). The fact of the matter is, being in a group that glorifies appearance leaves nothing to discuss but... well, how "hot" each member finds themselves and/or the other members of such an exclusive group. I imagine a board discussion proceeding as such:
Hottie1: Like, oh my God, I looked in the mirror and it TOTALLY reminded me of how freaking HOTT I am!
Hottie2: OMG You are so right Hottie1, you are FUCKING HOTT! Almost as hot as I am!!
Hottie 3: Um, wutever biotches. I am like, so much hotter than the two of you COMBINED. I'm the hottest fucking member of this whole group!... Kisses!
And, so on...
Therefore, it is with deep regret that I decline your invitation, MySpace Hotties, as I cannot rationalize participating in such discussions. Also, because I'm like, wayyy too hott for your groups anyway.
MySpace Entry Numero Dos:
Every time I begin to think that humanity may not be so bad after all, someone comes along and throws my whole sense of contentment out the window. I happened to check my MySpace homepage and noticed a bulletin that read, "Are you pro-choice?" Vaguely interested (which I very rarely am by MySpace bulletins), I decided to see what it had to say. To my great disappointment, the message of the bulletin was "fucking remove me" (how eloquent!) followed by 3 cartoon images of what can only be described as conservative propaganda. Outraged, not by her political opinion but by her complete and utter ignorance, I sent a reply:
"Alright then, I will. I would not want to be friends with someone who is so blatantly disrespectful of other peoples' opinions."
Her response?... "Peace the fuck out. <3"
(Aww, she sent me a heart! How sweet... about as nice as her vocabulary.)
My friends, I do not want you to take from this post that I am opposed to people being pro-life. You are who you are, and if that is what you believe then so be it. My only contention is that if I am respectful of your views, then it is only right for you to be respectful of mine. You do not have to agree with me and I do not have to agree with you (because frankly, I do not). However, if you want people to be open to your side of an argument, issuing such an ignorant and pathetic statement is not the way to do so.
So yeah, that's it for now... next time I won't cheat and I will write real updates, I promise.
