Eighty-Four (84)

There’s a lot of talk out there. A lot of noise. A lot of non-sensical bullshit being spewed by pseudo-intellects (or worse) attempting to disguise their opinions as facts. If that’s you, knock that shit off.

Don’t confuse your strong feelings or personal certainty about some things as facts. Have the balls to admit that YOUR opinions (of course) aren’t everyone else’s facts. What’s worse is many-a-slanted diatribe are often offered up with little style, and full of equally little substance.

Having a compelling point-of-view, combined with quality writing AND speaking, is seemingly a lost art in our text/technology and self-centered/social media-driven world. You must have substantive reasons for people to pay attention to you other than just getting your attention in the first place. You must offer value. Value in the eye of the beholder. We all must.

So, have your opinions, state them often, but understand the difference between what you want to be true, what you wish to be true, with what IS truly fucking true. Not everyone will love you, and that’s actually a good thing. But instead of just being a tool for sport, offer up your valid and valuable idea-toolbox for others to pick and choose, and choose to use positively in their lives.

Stay tuned-in…

The Loud Talker

loud_talker

Ah yes, the “loud-talker” in public… you know who I’m talking about… hopefully it’s not you.

This is an interesting breed of apparently oblivious (though not always), self-indulgent gems who make it their mission to ensure EVERYONE within earshot can hear every bullshit detail of their entire fucking conversation whether welcomed or not.

These self-centered fucks don’t give two shits about anyone else around them, nor about how their intrusive, light-belligerent behavior is negatively affecting others. You see, most people are too nice to say anything to these ass-hats because in a civilized society, most just don’t do that out of respect.

Most of us prefer to avoid making a scene, and being perceived as a dick… because most NORMAL people aren’t acting like impetuous attention-whores, and HAVE respect for others’ in public.

What I love most about these obnoxious, often obfuscating types, is their blaring self-delusion that people, (often even those in their immediate company), actually give two fucks about the…

“900-page-book-they-just read-in-one-day, while-staying-up-to-3:30-in-morning, doing-laundry, flustered-by-the-fact-that-they-just-can’t-seem-to-find-a-job-to-save-their-fucking-life…”

I’m sorry, what was that? I couldn’t tune you out, nor ignore you even from the other side of the goddamn room because you’re talking so fucking LOUD… Here’s a tip: how about a nice warm glass of shut-the-hell-up, before I come over there an shut your pie hole up for you… word to the wise.

Stay tuned-in…
