Theyre changing us...into what?
Its 136am, and i want to blog, but just can't think of what. i hate this feeling. ive been sitting in front of this screen for a while now, and ive come up with nothing. so ive just decided to do some free association writing. you know, typing whatever comes to mind. Everyone here is sleeping. Tonight i am off, yet even still I play the part of nightkeeper. The dog is snoring. as if thats important, but he sounds as though hes sleeping quite well. well that makes one of us. I never have been a good sleeper. my mind is always racing, thinking. I just saw a commercial for Chantrix, a new medicine designed to help one quit smoking. I found it quite disturbing.In it, there is a man who talks about how his family has smoked for at least 3 generations,and he is so glad he broke the cycle. since I am a smoker, this caught my attention, because I want so dseperately to quit. And I even considered getting a presciption. But as i watched more, (I still wanna quit, but not using their meds), The part came where they talked about the side effects of using Chantrix. Strangely vivid dreams(which I already have enough of), suicidal actions or thoughts, agaitation or uncharacteristic mood swings, skin irritations and problems that could become fatal, and if ur on head meds talk to ur doctor first because this could affect the effects of your meds, and i swear the list of hazards went on for like 30 seconds, which is long in TV time. And it got me thinking about all of the other wonder drugs that are created to change our lives. i mean, i see commercials for so many different drugs that are supposed to make us feel better, think better, fuck better, and be better. Then late at night when they think no ones watching, u see that commercial with the seedy greasy lawyer asking you, "If you or a loved one has suffered blah blah or blah from the use of this med, you may be entiled to..."And it got me thinking, sometimes the primary issue, is less painful that the meds it makes to fix it. just like there is a new med to curb the amount of periods a woman has, so much that she may only have 4 a year. now i dont know about you, but tha seems really unnatural. the menstrual cycle is a natural part of a womans life. to have these (remember im a guy), i would think would show a healthy system. It all depends on the particular persons body i suppose. But it just seems really strange to me that a pill is used to subvert what occurs in nature. It seems as thought there is a med to cure everthing that makes us human. You get sad,theres a pill for that. u get gas, theres a pill for that. Want less periods so u can fuck more? theres a pill for that. wanna fuck more? Guess what? got one for that. not big enuff, theres a pill for that. ( which as a man ill tell u. It dont matter how big it is, if u dont know how to work it, it dont mean..."dick"! lol!) There is a pill to fix and control every aspect of our lives as if being human is a sickness. Emotions have become symptoms...And ppl cant understand why pill popping has become a serious addiction. ppl are scared to be human anymore because they tell us its wrong. Its wrong to be sad its, wrong to be 2 glad, its wrong to be small, its wrong to be HUMAN. what are they really trying to do 2 us? And during this whole time, we stand there and take it up the ass with no vaseline. Nobody stands up for anything anymore, unless its ignorant, brash and unhealthy. we hold no one in positions of power accountable for anything. we just bend over and take it, and dont even get a phone call afterwards. when is this gonna end/ whats it gonna take? This is a world where we cheer the bad guy and shit on the good guy.(see:nice guys finish last). Well Im not gonna force my mind tonight to come up with anything clever, so i will end this blog here. Ive got new videos of my show to upload to youtube, so farewell for now my friends, and remember: keep that third eye open, and dont enter 1408. Goodnight.
