I will punch you right through that sign. [Aug. 25th, 2011|12:29 pm]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry


YOU EXIST. BE AS SELF INDULGENT AS YOU CAN. DON'T THINK TOO MUCH. BAD SITUATIONS ARE EASY TO CHANGE AND IF THIS ISN'T TRUE FOR YOU, DON'T GET LOSER GERMS ON THIS SIGN. MY EVERY THOUGHT IS SO DEEP. IF YOU ARE YOUNG, ATTRACTIVE AND PRIVILEGED, LOVE IS EASY. NO FATTIES, NO OLDSTERS, NO HOBOS. NOTHING IS COMPLICATED WHEN YOU CAN BUY WHAT YOU WANT. DIFFERENT TYPE SIZES CAN MAKE APHORISMS PROFOUND. EAT RAINBOWS, SHIT STARS. ASK THE NEXT PERSON YOU SEE HOW DESPERATE THEY ARE, AND SHARE YOUR DESIRE TO HUNT THEM FOR SPORT. TRAVEL OFTEN; TOURISM IS AN ADEQUATE SUBSTITUTE FOR DEPTH. IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY, IT'S PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU MISSED YOUR CHANCE AT AWESOME. LIFE IS BEING BORN ON THIRD BASE AND ACTING LIKE HITTING A TRIPLE IS SIMPLE. HANG ON TO THOSE DREAMS, IT MAKES IT EASIER TO SELL YOU. LIFE IS SHORT AND BRUTAL IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LIVE A WINSOME CLICHE. WELCOME TO HELL.

EAT RAINBOWS, SHIT STARS.

This must be made into a slogan for something. I don't care what.

EDIT: If you don't mind, I'm going to re-post this on my journal shortly, with your (cited) commentary and some of my own.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

"OFTEN, TOURISM IS AN ADEQUATE SUBSTITUTE FOR DEPTH."

Can I send your text to graphic designer friends and see if anyone wants to make it into a sign of its own?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Yes, oh please yes. I'd love to have a photo and circulate it as widely as this has throughout the tumblrverse.

It's circulating on tumblr, which I've come to view as the dumber, naked livejournal.

Tumblr is for sixteen-year-olds, on the cusp of maybe, just maybe, not being complete self-absorbed dirtbag teenage fuckheads. But there's no hope for most. Most of the undergrads I saw had kept up the mood.

I had an excellent impression of tumblr because I came through it via some high quality blogs. Then I discovered the a design gives a deceptive polish to much meme-sharing and a surprising amount of undress.

I think LJ had a self-absorbed teen phase, but it occured before tech made shiny digital exhibitionism so easy and fun. An awkward text oriented site makes even the beautiful people seem more substantial.

Remember when Elyse Sewell had an LJ with witty prose as well as pretty photos? Hell, remember Elyse Sewell?

UPDATE FOR NEW VISITORS: I've got endless scorn for that Holstee crap, but I appreciate tumblr. It's awesome and Livejournal is just as full of feels, flaws and stupid aphorisms by people of all ages. When LJ users grumble and mock, deep down we identify...and envy due to LJ's declining userbase. As many say, "Wait, Livejournal is still a thing?"

That sign makes me long to bunch up my arthritic little old lady fist and punch someone in the snoot.

Which is okay because according to the sign-maker my contempt for pampered asshats is beautiful.
