Text Expansion #1: Everyone Is Full of Shit

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 3, 2014, 3:05 AM
Hey guys and dolls! 

WELCOME TO THE FIRST EVER TEXT EXPANSION!

So this is a brand new thing I'm doing where I write an in-depth exploration of a specific topic in a sort of article format. Then you guys read it and feel free to sound off what you think in the comments. This is kind of my way of getting my thoughts in writing and sharing them in a (hopefully) friendly environment and then starting a discussion with you guys based on it. This will be a way for us to sort of analyse the world and maybe make some sense of things here on the interwebs (because we all know how good the internet is at making sense of things). Note that future Text Expansion articles will not have any foreword like this one. This one is special. Oh.

Without any further ado, let's kick this thing off and see how it fares. :noes:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So for my first article that exercises the mind and maybe will help us better understand this crazy, crap-filled world we live in, I've decided that the topic here will be a fairly simple one. Namely, the fact that this wonderful life we live is just as much lovely and full of rainbow-vomiting awesome as it is full of absolute shit.

Now please don't get me wrong outright - I'm not saying life sucks and this isn't a goth-y emo-y article about how life is only sadness and pain and suffering as we all shamble slowly to our inevitable deaths. I have a healthy mixture of disrespect and pity for people that DO feel that way, and I want to make it abundantly clear that I LOVE life and I feel life has a right to be loved. However, there are many things (mainly, people) in our lives that can sometimes be full of shit. It's just a fact of life, and I think as human beings that are on the internet, mostly young and with their whole lives ahead of them, that it's probably a good time for us to face up to that right now. I mean, it's obvious that you can't go skipping through life joyfully thinking everything and everyone is being entirely honest and reasonable and NOT expect to get your hopes and dreams shat on at least once (and that's if you're lucky). In fact, that's probably how we all found out that pretty much everyone and everything is at least a little full of shit. But there are some people, and in general, 'things' (though I hate using that word here) that have the capacity to be a bit more full of shit than others. And that brings us to our first offender...


Politicians

Okay, let's be fair...everyone probably already has a good idea that these guys are full of it.  No matter what side of the political coin you happen to fall on, you can at least admit that there's something wrong with pretty much everyone in this demographic. The reason is simple: politicians want to be voted into some position of influence, and so they will often lie, cheat, swindle and do probably anything in their power in an ultimate attempt to gain votes and reach the position of influence they're seeking. Not a whole lot to it, to be frank. Politicians get to where they are with a common and completely acceptable amount of bullshit. And if you know what to spot, it's quite easy to pick apart sometimes. I mean, Stephen Colbert can fill an entire half hour timeslot with playing conflicting statements from the same political asshole just to make that point clear. So I think we're all mostly on board with this one.


Mass Media

Alright, alright, this one's pretty obvious too. But for those who aren't familiar with the news stations, talk shows, and other shitty programming that molests the television line-ups these days, the state and condition of television is predictably full of shit. The thing (there's that word again) that most sticks out to me though are the news stations, and NO, I'm not just talking about Fox News. In a desperate attempt to gain ratings and get people to watch, news channels specifically pick not only the bits of so-called news they WANT to show us, but if they're crafty, they'll even determine how you'll FEEL about what your hearing about. And that is bullshit. Plus, half of the deplorable crap that these stations consider "news-worthy" is almost cringe-inducing. And besides all that, they won't just cover some story once, all half-ass and shit...they'll cover that bitch A MILLION FUCKING TIMES OVER if they think you'll stick around for it. Is that what "providing headline news" is supposed to entail? Because I think after the first twelve times, we all get the fucking picture. The only news you're giving us on the thirteenth time around is that you have nothing else you feel like talking about and you are a whore for ratings.

Trends

Now we get a tad personal. Trends are bullshit because they have the tendency to turn people into androids. Originality is pretty much dead by now, and if not completely dead yet, it's at least largely frowned upon and usually avoided. And why wouldn't it be? Originality means standing out, being different and thus "weird", and it can usually guarantee you a seat on the one-way train to Not-Having-A-Clique-To-Belong-To Land (ah, how I know hat train well).

Let's make something clear: there's a WORLD of difference between supporting or doing something you actually love and meeting up with a group of individuals that feel the same because of it, and supporting or doing something just to get people to like you. The first one of those is an obvious good thing. You like a certain band. Hey, I like that same band! Let's be friends since we have that thing in common. The end. That's how finding a group of friends or your first online buddy (;)) happens most of the time. On the other hand, though, being a fan of something because it's cool is no way to gain real friends, and just generally a bad idea.

And don't think it's just LIKING something that makes you cool - there are plenty of fandoms that work in the opposite just as well. Take My Little Pony  for example, because I know true fans and true haters of it and I know they can both understand that they don't apply here and that they totally know this is true of this particular fandom. MLP is just as cool to be liked as it is to be hated. Both communities on either side are equally as loud and equally as passionate, and I'd be willing to bet a large majority of you out there may have a strong opinion on MLP even if you haven't seen or experienced a single bit of the show itself. That's because we've made it cool to both love and hate the shit out of it to the point that it is hated and loved even without someone having to actually sit down and try it out. YES, there are some true lovers and true haters of things out there, even for popular things, as true "bronies" and "pegasisters" will attest to. But I think things are getting a bit twisted when we're pining for friends and seeking fandoms to stalk to meet that end and to find a place to fit in.

Teachers

Ah, teachers. Come on, guys. There are GREAT teachers out there, teachers that have a passion for what they do and a love of children and a thirst to fill young heads with all of the knowledge they can in order to help them become better prepared for the years that lie ahead (which, in the case of most of these young people, involve part-time jobs, getting married too soon, and working shitty low-paying jobs for all eternity). There ARE teachers that are simply AWESOME. And then there's the other 90%. Let's be completely frank here, I have college professors on this list too, but they aren't full of shit in the same way most teachers are.

My lovely mother went to college to be a teacher and taught for several years after receiving her diploma in various high schools around upstate New York. And one of the things she learned from that was that her passion and love for teaching and for her students was not a trait that was shared among her colleagues. A trait that WAS shared among her colleagues, however, almost completely across the board and uniform? Summers off from work. Now that may seem silly, going into a profession just to get entire chunks of time off. But trust me, it's not as crazy as it sounds. And when you have people teaching just because of the time off and the weekends pretty much freed up, you get a group of people who are teaching that may not actually LIKE to teach, or may not even like kids to begin with. It's kind of insane to think about, but I'm sure those of you who went to a public school can probably envision some of these very teachers now. Hell, I had a teacher that would literally just copy verbatim from the book for the class and put the words on a Power Point and would just flick through the slides without elaborating on a single thing other than reading each word on the slide aloud like we were a class of 10th grade illiterates. It was clear this teacher didn't like teaching, and really clear he didn't like kids. And then he was caught embezzling from our graduating class. True fucking story. So that just further proves my point. Some teachers are worth listening to. Others are full of shit. And lucky for us, they're pretty easy to spot once you know what to look for.

College Professors

Anyone who has gone to college for one day of one semester knows this. It is literally like a plague. Earlier I mentioned that professors from a college were not full of shit in the same way teacher from a grade school are. Let me let you in on a personal example.

Once upon a time, there was an art student who went to art school. The student took an art class with an art professor. And when the student did the first assignment, the professor told the student that their assignment was all wrong and wouldn't receive full credit because the professor didn't like the student’s creative style. Largely this was because the professor, being an artist himself, had a specific style and he wanted his students to emulate HIS style. You know, because pride-stoke. He is the professor, so by title alone, he is better than you at everything and especially at the thing he’s trying to teach you. But the problem is, this professor doesn't know how to properly teach. All he knows how to do is tell you to do the assignment exactly as he would.

I've told college-going friends of mine that college work isn't about creativity, or ingenuity, or intelligence, or any of that. Nine times out of ten, college work is about sucking the professor’s dick and making them feel good. You treat the professor like the god or goddess they are convinced that they are, and you’ll get a good grade. Obviously, there are exceptions as with any of these categories, and yes, I've met plenty of great professors who are truly gifted teachers and love the subject they teach. But most of them – dicksuck. Man it’s annoying.

Also one last quick note: I had a professor once that required all of his students to purchase a book for his class or else they would immediately fail. What book, you ask? Why, the only one he had ever gotten published, of course.

Dicksuck.


Parents

No, it can’t be! Not our lovely doting parents! They are the very creatures that spawned and raised us into the mediocre piles of disappointment most of us are today. How could parents EVER be full of shit?

Clearly you have not looked hard enough if you are seriously asking that. Here’s the thing, right? Parents have expectations, and hopes, and goals, and aspirations, just like anyone else. And it’s usually impossible NOT to have those things for your own children. I am not a parent, mind you, but I see it a lot in the young parents I am surrounded by. They have a kid that’s only a month or two old and they’re already dressing them a specific way and treating them in a specific manner according to what they project the child’s personality will be like once they've, ya know, actually fucking developed one. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s the only way to behave with a child. We can’t all just have a normal or neutral upbringing because what the fuck is a normal? What the fuck is a neutral? So we do what we can. Little boys are given trucks and cars, and sports and the color blue and dinosaurs to play with. Little girls are put in dresses and given stuffed animals and flowers and dollies and pink shit. (Editor’s note: I know nothing about girls.) These are called gender roles, and they are habitually reinforced into every generation of youth. But what happens when the child gets old enough to deny them, or even better, completely refuse to follow them?

Picture if you will, a mom who loves girly things and pink and all that crap I mention from before. Imagine she is an uber girly-girl of the highest degree. Then imagine she has her first child and, to her utter delight, it is a baby girl. She showers this infant in pink shit and girly stuff, ecstatic that she has her own little girl to raise in the girliest way possible. She talks in long spurts about how her baby girl will be a dancer, just like her mother was. She will talk about how flowers and Minnie Mouse are TOTALLY her little girl’s favorite things. She will dress her baby up in the most outlandishly frilly dresses and shit just because she KNOWS her baby is a total girly-girl girl just like her mommy. But what if that baby girl grows up and quickly discovers the awesomeness that is Hot Wheels? What if, as she ages, she becomes more attached to catching snakes in the backyard and playing baseball and stuff like that, and it turns out she doesn’t want to have anything to do with dancing and the color pink in general?

Parents do this projecting shit because when they have a baby, that baby is a reflection of them. It is a mirror, and often it’s hard to remember that, at some point in this kid’s life, they are going to have their own thoughts, feelings, and opinions that may not always reflect the parents so precisely. They are their own entity, at the end of the day – they are their own person with their own identity. And shoving certain behaviors, thoughts, feelings and so on down a child’s throat is absolutely bullshit. You see this a lot with fathers who have sons that come out of the closet and declare that they are something other than straight. This can be really hard on a father with a more closed mind because to them, their son is a representation of them. So if their son is not straight, they then can take that personally (in a weird sort of way).

I feel like one of the worst examples of parents being full of shit (besides disowning their children for something like being anything other than perfectly straight) is the shit-spewing shitfest that goes on at child pageants. Dear GOD. Talk about a group of people trying desperately to live vicariously through their own hellspawn. Yes, some of the kids really like doing pageants for some reason. But most of them are really obviously being forced into it because it’s what the PARENTS want for them. The parents don’t care what the child wants, even going so far as to say things like “Oh, she just loves pageants!” as she’s throwing a fit in the corner after having her makeup applied a bit too hastily. I mean, maybe I shouldn’t judge, but Jesus Kite-Surfing Christ, it just comes off as MESSED UP.

So yeah. Parents are full of shit. What could possibly be next?

Ourselves

Yep. You’re full of shit. I’m full of shit. All of us are, in our own way. That’s what makes this one so difficult to pin down, exactly. But while you were reading all the stuff above and either disagreeing or agreeing with the points I’ve argued, you yourself have been sitting all the while, bullshitting in your own special sort of way.

We actually HAVE to be full of shit, evolutionarily speaking. We need to find our own nirvana in this hectic world of cable and internet customer service hellholes and heating bills and the scary shit we see on the news (which as I’ve mentioned may actually be hysteria over nothing). So we have our own way of being full of shit in order to make life more comfortable. It’s more of a cost of living sort of thing at this point. And no one does it in quite the same way, but everyone does it. And whether you like to hear it or not, you’re about to: every single human being is, at the end of the day, only really worried about themselves. THAT ain’t no bullshit, that’s pure fact. Pay REALLY CLOSE ATTENTION next time you’re talking to someone, just having a friendly chat. How often does the person you’re talking to try to avert the conversation to be about them in some way? How often do YOU pop in and avert the conversation to be about you? I think you’ll be surprised.

I’ll leave this section with this: I was once given a very special, if not completely cynical, shred of wisdom. The act of mourning the loss of a loved one, no matter who that loved one is, is a completely selfish emotion. Because at the end of the day, you aren’t sad that the person who passed will never be able to see another Christmas or birthday, or live to watch another episode of their favorite show, or even live to see their grandchildren get married someday. No, you’re sad because YOU won’t get to see them ever again. It’s not about them, it’s about YOU. Still think you’re not full of shit? Bad news, my friend…we ALL are.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

So that’s my first Text Expansion. A heavy subject to cover, but I feel like even though it’s a bit pessimistic sounding, it has a place somewhere. Stick around for more Text Expansion articles in the future. I’m working on articles dealing with things that I learned at my job as a haunted house actor, as well as some pieces about video games. Let me know what you think and PLEASE feel free to weigh in (respectfully, of course), with your opinion, experiences, or whatever, in the comment section below. Much love! :meow:

Mortimer "Morty" McCullery {scribbilus insanicus}: An awkward and immature creature believed to be the product of a social disruption implosion in 1992. It has an interest in dressing strangely, playing acoustic guitar, and using various instruments to create bizarre markings on paper it calls 'pics'. It preys upon Instant Ramen, pizza, chicken, sandwiches, and excessive amounts of junk food, especially candy. It tends to drink massive quantities of Mountain Dew, milkshakes of all flavors, and liquefied rainbow sherbert. Nothing much seems to irritate this creature beyond rationality, although it can get slightly stressed if you take it's pencil. It also has a strange fascination with brains and may actually be a zombie. This has yet to be verified as no one will get close enough to investigate often for fear that insanity and weirdness is catching.

Interests

Art Trades

:star: Art trades are OPEN :star:

Personal Rules for Art Trades:

:bulletgreen: PLEASE OFFER ART TRADES VIA NOTE AND INCLUDE WHAT YOU'D LIKE.
:bulletblack: I don't drawr nudity or slashy yuri/yaoi.
:bulletgreen: I do cartoons, doodle dumps, and one-page comics ONLY, no comic strips because they tend to take a REALLY long time to do.
:bulletblack: If you want yourself to be in it, please give me a description in the note you send.

NOTE:
I used to do requests for free, no art, money or points in return, but it's gotten to the point where I can't justify doing spur of the moment requests with no form of payment for just acquaintances. I still do gifts spontaneously for friends, but art trades are it now so I can adjust my focus on my personal portfolio. So if you want me to make something for you, I expect a piece of art that is equal to what I am drawring you (colored, same amount of figures, etc.) in return. No biggie. But once again, please note me for information and to submit or offer an art trade.

Thanks! :meow:
