Hello everyone, Sorry I’ve not blogged for a while but I find it hard to concentrate. I’m actually in the process of writing some interesting blogs, but bear with me, they may take a while, if I rush them they will be short and not thought out properly (Shut up laughing, my posts are always thought out!). Anyway, it’s a year on the 24th of September that I wrote and posted my first blog ever! I thought it was only fitting to make a note of this. Surprisingly enough it didn’t get any comments, it not being full of Big brother and stories about how I got “Absolutely rat arsed da uva night!” being the main reason why.
So on this anniversary I thought I would share with you some of the reasons I chose to blog. Firstly it was the amount of hypocrisy, lies and corruption by religious leaders, politicians and businessmen that I read about in the newspapers and saw on TV that got me going. It was also the fact the media never offered any solutions or real reason as to why this happened. In most cases it was pure human nature and political correctness that was the answer. What also made me do it was the amount of non entities, celebs and other rubbish that were given precedent on the front page of many news papers and the top story on the TV news! It goes something like this: [*Big ben chimes*] “This is News at 10, I’m Trevor MacDonald. David Beckham got a new hair cut today!” And on that bombshell Sir Trev creams his y-fronts and so do the rest of the uneducated sheepish masses! If it wasn’t that thick plank is was some other intellectually challenged celeb. Even when they had politicians interviewed, they seldom put the real questions to them and even when they did they didn’t get a straight answer. So I discussed the idea with my dad, the only other sane person I knew, it seemed, and we agreed that the only place you could have the kind of free speech exposing the corruption and lies – religious, political or other – was on the net. He also said that you wont have much chance of opening people’s eyes because they just don’t care or wont want to see or read it. He was right to a degree. I didn’t actually get the net and a computer till after my dad had died sadly, otherwise you would have had even worse attacks on almost everything, just without the swearing! No wait, you’d probably get more! HAHA.
My dad was partly responsible for my political and social awareness, indirectly though, he didn’t sit me down and tell me all about it, he wasn’t that type of dad. He would see something on the TV and point it out in a sarcastic and funny way, and I would understand. I don’t mean understand as in a parent telling their child about religion or any other kind of ideology, and the child accepting it as the truth. In fact we clashed on many things political and not. There’s also something else we used to do, whoever got the newspaper first would underline or circle the most important headlines in the paper. They were usually the stories tucked away in the corners, just under the pictures of Beckham and the rest of the assholes. These were and are the stories that deserved the front page and the most attention, yet they were stuck on page nine and given ten lines if they were lucky! These are the things I liked to post about. Though you wouldn’t be able to tell recently as I’ve been ill and just don’t really watched the TV or read the papers anymore.
When I first started blogging my spelling was bad and so was my grammar, in fact it’s still not that good! Besides this slight handicap I blogged anyway, it didn’t matter anyway, over half the spacers wrote in short text language anyway and wouldn’t understand full English if their lives depended on it. I expected to make very little friends, if any at all!… because of my views on religion and politics. After seeing some of the spaces I expected no response as a lot of them were bare and just had pictures posted. Those that did just spoke about how pissed they got! So there was me expecting nothing and about to pack it in when Nicky came along. She was a Catholic and she commented on my Religion post! What was more strange was she agreed.. even as a Catholic! She became my first space friend! Cheers Nicky. The second commenter was Dave, he left a great comment and came back many times with many intelligent comments (Don’t go getting a big head now, Dave haha). Robin was third I think, he came to me after I went to his space because of the politics, I didn’t leave a comment though. The reason why was he was new Labour, he sort of supported them and I don’t really go looking for trouble or arguments on people’s blogs, so I left it. He came to mine and we got on ever since!
Since then I’ve met some great and funny people on here, and even got some on messenger. These are people I never thought I would ever be friends with. For instance, “Angry Mandy” hahaha (You know you like that name) she’s a Jehovah’s Witness of sorts, and she’s got the most twisted sense of humour of my friends on here! I talk to Chris about how the country’s going down the toilet, debate with Pete about many things, he’s the only full-time political blogger on here actually! I’ve met many more, too many to mention but you know I like you all. In fact, I’ve only ever had one person on here I never got on with, and he was a BNP nazi brain-dead wanker! Yes Mosh YOU! and I still maintain you’re a sad bigoted lieing nazi bastard! Just thought I’d put that out there, just in case he happens to pass by me again.
I’ve noticed a pattern to my blogs though, most of the answers to them is Human nature. Besides this annoying spoiler I will continue to blog, just for the benefit of teaching others and teaching and learning myself. There’s one slight difference though, I come on here to educate and be educated as well as let off steam, they were basically my aimz, now I know there’s more interesting people on here than I first thought. So… in the quest for solutions, truth, answers and people with half a brain… warp factor five Sulu!
