I am so unimpressed with myself right now. I have ten tons of work to do…a meeting to discuss the first bit of my dissertation, an essay to do some research for, a sadly neglected etsy shop to update, and a recapitulative seminar to revise for tomorrow morning.
But what am I doing? I’m drifting across the internet, visiting Twitter and Facebook and YouTube and WordPress. Ah, WordPress. The place I come to talk about things that don’t matter much to people who don’t know me at all. What would I do without internet therapy?
This was originally going to be one of my typical long, ranty posts full of unnecessary self-disclosure, complaints and platitudinizing but you know what?
I wrote it all out.
I read it.
I read it again.
And I decided that I did not need to be putting all of that temporary misery out there for permanent on the internet. I’ve done my share of that. It’s out of my system. It’s done, It’s gone.
Like I said, what would I do without internet therapy?
Today’s song title/blog title has nothing to do with the topic, but I did want to shout out this kick–ass cover of Adele’s Rolling In the Deep by Swedish band Dirty Loops. Adele, for me, is a big meh in the musical landscape and Rolling the Deep is the meh-iest of all her tunes. Don’t get me wrong–I can see why people love her and that song. I just don’t feel the same way.
This cover by Dirty Loops, does what all the best covers do and makes this song a keeper for me.
With that said, I’ll ask a few questions to end today’s post.
What happens when you realize that you’re doing too much with too little?
What happens when you realize, on the path to becoming a better person, that you also need better people?
Tricky questions, I suppose. Hit the comments if you have any ideas.
Yeah, so I’ve got a video blog.
Thing the first; Remember the soul singing wannabe whose Blair Witch-style video I posted about back in July? Well, apparently, she’s read my(and several other people’s) blog wondering what her deal is…and her response is…um…interesting…(Warning; extremely bad language…)
Well Alrighty Then.
Thing the second; I haven’t written a blog for quite a while now. There’s a few reasons why.
Number one; I forgot the password and hadn’t bothered e-mailing for a new one yet, figuring that sooner or later, I’d remember the old one. Lo and behold, I did. Unfortunately, it’s later rather than sooner.
Reason number two; I’ve moved, and don’t have internet access where I’m living now.
Reason number three; general malaise. Life is pretty good, I just haven’t been feeling that great. I’ve had an extended case of the blues that occasionally deepens to a nice navy hue that makes it difficult to see past my own nose, never mind the route to the computer.
In any case, I’m sorta back blogging regularly again now. I just don’t have much that’s coherent to say.
Moving on…I’ve been really into strong visual images and ideas lately. While most of my creative energy is expressing in the forms of word and sound lately, I have a deep appreciation for the visual as well. And to me, this music video is one of the best mixtures of the three…
