The surprisingly large turnout of sheer freakouts brought out by the Great Last.fm Outage of 2013 has had me kinda pondering... I don't think many people recognize just how many of us "First World"ers are rife with psychological complexes due to dissociative, reality-distancing technology and this little whacked out, hormonally raging, stunted social system of ours pretty much impels us to act out, abstracting everything for survival, or else retreat inside ourselves, severing the bridge between dreams and mediocre reality. Of course I'm only really talking about myself, as societal problems are ALWAYS actually MY problems with society. I'm as far from an activist as you can get and I only ever really do "take action" if there is a super-obvious call for it right in front of me... Otherwise, I just sit back and observe the construct.
ANYway, what has provoked me to leave this already-too-long post is the way that a lot of people reacted to having a slightly altered music-scrobbling record for the "torturously" long period of a whole day :-P I don't mean to be offensive, but seriously, some of you who may be reading this should lighten up a little. Be open to change and embrace our unavoidable master chⒶos. I am saying this as one of you. I too torture myself, banging against the boundaries of obsession. Recognizing that point where you start to turn on your own best interest is a subtle art that can only ever be more refined by our human perception.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on my blather ^__^
