Piss + Vinegar.

For every person that posts a supportive comment on here, I'd wager there are about 20 people who think I'm so full of shit I'm not worth the trouble, 20 people who agree but don't want to join in for whatever reason, and 20 people who don't have the slightest clue what I'm talking about.

A few posts back I talked about how I really wanted to find the beauty in the hearts of people, now clearly I have given up.

I gave up because I don't think it's there.

I think people are all fucked from the get go, and the thing that fools us is how well we all disguise it.

I get accused of being holier-than-thou every now and then, but fuck it. It's my blog, therefore, my opinion, not yours.

Besides, last time I looked, I was still human, so I'm as guilty of all of this as I say you are.

As i have said before- Given a long enough time line, and enough information, none of us would like any others of us.

So what's the point of anything?

I really don't know.

And I've stopped caring.

This is...you know who the fuck this is.

I fall under the catergory of "20 people who agree but don't want to join in for whatever reason." The whatever reason is my internet timidness.

There is beauty in people, it just sucks that you have to go through tons before you come across one, kinda like the lottery. It makes wanting to cut interaction with your fellow humankind to a mininum, but if you allow for the apathy to consume you, you might miss out. Ew, cliche saying. Sorry, I know, it hurt me a little, too.

So what do you really want?

I cannot fathom for the life of me why some people expect you to post their opinions on your blog.

Jay said...

I post my opinion everywhere, mostly because I'm in love with myself. I don't have beauty in me, but I am cocky as hell; your holier than thouness has nothing on me.

Psst, it's me! said...

Mara chases after Knifey as he's sprinting around the corner away from humanity. She lunges and catches his back leg. His elbow smacks the concrete. Mara has him pinned for approximately 6.8 seconds before he'll be able to shake her off. He looks back and gives Mara the "WTF" look.

Not all people suck entirely, my friend. The majority, yeah, I'll give you that. But some of us only suck in certain lighting. That's as good as we'll ever get. Since it's easy to acknowledge we're all sort of AFU (I just love acronyms), what's the harm in choosing to associate with the best of the people who suck, accepting that they suck on occasion, knowing we suck a little ourselves from time to time?

It's a hell of a lot easier, even enjoyable, to deal with the people who are only slightly fucked up. But, my oh my, the people you've dealt with crossed over the "slightly" line about 2 miles ago.

And Mara just realized that Knifey escaped the grasp she had on his ankle about 20 seconds ago. Oh, well. She tried.

Most people suck. It's just the reality of today's society and forced consumerism (esp. in the US). It makes the good people that you meet all that much worth hanging on to. I think that many people have something about them that makes them good but it only gets to come out in once in a while because of the generally suckiness of society. Hang in there knifey, there will be people that you find that will touch your heart and make you realize that there are very, very good people out there (like Kitten!) and they'll show you that your quest isn't completely pointless. You just have to realize that we're all human and no matter how good a person is, there will be moments of absolute selfishness, stupidity or bitchiness (esp. if said person is female and PMSing ;)
Have a good day knifey! Purrs and headbutts for you

Don't give up and think its not there bub. There IS beauty in the hearts of people - certainly not all of the people, all of the time, and not even some of the people some of the time... but as has been said, there are a few good eggs out there.... and they're worth seeking out, waiting for, and holding on to.

The world is not totally fucked. (only partially) Don't give up on everything.


Kitten said...

I *heart* you, Knifey.

bou said...

knifey...the one thing I've embraced is the beauty in all humans...people have never failed to surprise me and that is f-ing amazing...you could say I'm naive and I don't see the evil, but that is not true...I choose to see the common thread that makes us all human...
and, if you do choose to hurt me, be needlessly mean, suck or overall toxic...I see it as YP not MP...my world is solely mine...I think I project this because anyone that has ever tried to tear me down has given up very quickly after noticing me walking away, laughing, and on to the next adventure...

retarius said...

humans are pretty stupid, and you have to go out of your way to see the worth in the majority of them. you have the morons who think they are smarter and better than everyone, and the rest of us who know it (of course, we might be the morons, so it all balances out)

and let me add a shamelss spam-like plug for AFROCAT

You've Got What I Need... said...

Remember the cuddly chickens, K? Now, whose warm ribs are they going to le cluck up to if you're all Hulked out?

Fucked yes, people are fucked. That's how the system works. At times, this is quite nice, but at others... well, it's not so nice.

You're nice.


Nice and cuddly. What a combo, eh?

I've met some bad people and some people who I didn't give much thought to until they surprised the hell out of me by being amazing. Nobody is going to be all good. Some people are evil pricks, But there is beauty out there - sometimes it's so damn ephemeral. Sometimes it blazes out when you need it. I refuse to accept that people are all screwed up, but we're products of our environment and upbringing. I look at my son and I see so much beauty.Guess I'm trying to say (ineptly)that most of us are complex. I've never met anyone who was beautiful all the time but lots of people are surprising and wonderful quite often. Usually you find the beauty when you need it the most.

I don't think that was inept at all Adie...
I like this "Sometimes it blazes out when you need it.".

Blazing out is something I could use some of right now.

Thanks for stopping by.
