Hahaha 100 words would be far too long
Advertising agencies sold products by exploiting people’s insecurities. “Buy this product or no one will fuck you”, they said. “Buy this product or you’ll never be accepted”. The people in charge made a lot of money this way, and they spent that money on stuff they didn’t need, out of fear that no one would fuck them, or they’d never be accepted. It would be nicer if adverts told us not to bother with society’s narrow parameters of beauty, since we’re just energy as old as the universe, forged in the furnaces of stars. But stars don’t buy anti-wrinkle cream.
Now taking requests/subjects/prompts for 100-word writings.
Beyond excited to see Boyhood. Richard Linklater is a genius.
If you haven’t seen Kanye West perform I would highly recommend it. Probably the closest thing I’ll ever have to a religious experience.
I have a scholar’s love of silence and solitude. To sit and pass hour after hour in idle chatter with a roomful of strangers is to me the worst sort of torment.
In creating human beings the universe made its greatest error – it became self-aware. And self-awareness comes all too often in tandem with self-destruction.
I like to think I’m a little more optimistic about the human condition now. It comes and goes, I suppose.
Not sure how many people will recognise that that was a joke. Or if it’s even funny. These are the fears that keep me up at night.
The internet has raised a generation of insecure egoists. We must stop measuring our self-worth via ‘likes’ and ‘retweets’. It’s pathetic. Like/reblog this post if you agree with me.
