WTF? Where Did February Go?

Maybe it is true, the older you get the faster time seems to fly by. Or maybe it's just that February is a short month and I'm lazy when it comes to blogging.

I used to have angst and drama and a laundry list of items to bitch about but life is smooth sailing lately. Hell, life has been smooth sailing for months now. Every day is the same but different all at the same time. I realize that may not make much sense but it's the only way I can describe it.

As the weather warms up and spring eventually arrives and then turns into summer I can see myself hardly blogging at all. It's not that I don't want to it's just that sometimes you can't put moments into words and up on a screen in front of you. Or maybe I'm just not that great of a writer. I've mentioned before how I fear talking about the future too much. There are certain items that are definite to me and there are others that I have no idea if they will come to fruition. I do not care for uncertainty but I know that many things are out of my control and I just have to go with the flow. What I do know is that at this moment I am happy and that is what matters most.

Happiness and contentment tend to make for a boring blog, this I know. People (including myself) love to read about pain and anger and ranting. I just don't have it in me right now. The only frustration in my life at the moment is learning how to drive stick. Thomas, God bless his very very patient soul, agreed to put his car's transmission in serious danger and teach me. In 12 years of driving I've never had to really and truly think about what I'm doing when it comes to driving. You just get in and go right? Yea, not so much with the stick. There's the pushing of the clutch, and changing gears, and down-shifting, and trying my absolute best not to kill the damn car. It's gonna take a lot of practice and possibly one of those neck brace thingies. And maybe a new transmission too.

Rolls Royce, baby

I've seen a lot of really nice cars in my neighborhood but this Rolls Royce was NICE. Hell, I was nervous just driving behind him.

This house is on fire, not for sale

Oh the irony. Houses for sale? Yea, only if you wanna buy ashes and some concrete posts.

Officially best friends

And this is where we all say, "Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww".

The Internet IS Serious Business

If ever you think that when you upload, comment, blog, or even surf the internet you are annonymous or hidden you are wrong. Very very wrong.

Over the weekend a teenaged boy recorded himself picking up the family cat Dusty and then slamming him against a shower wall, repeatedly punching and slapping the cat, and then spraying the cat with water in the shower. He uploaded the video to YouTube and within HOURS the video had been seen by thousands. A message board caught wind and not long after personal information about this boy had been found, confirmed, and posted everywhere. People, the interwebz was seriously SRSLY pissed off.

You can find anything and everything on the web. From the funniest of funny to the sickest and most foul you could ever imagine, it's all in one place - the internet. However, post a video of yourself beating up a defenseless cat and posting it for the world to see is beyond almost anyone's belief. We, as human beings, cannot tolerate such senseless acts and most of us just can't stomach to watch. I am one of those people. I have seen screen shots from the vid and that alone is almost too much for me to take.

Thanks to the efforts of many this kid and his brother, who allegedly filmed the henious act, have been reported to every major news source, local police department, PETA, ASPCA, Humane Society, etc. The cat has been removed from the home and the teenage boys are now facing criminal charges.

All of which took place in a matter of HOURS.

Record yourself playing Guitar Hero, ranting about politics, playing pranks on your friends, or whatever else you can think of. Upload it to YouTube and try to score some e-fame. However, do not fuck with animals and put it out for the world to see. Society as a whole may be royally screwed up in many ways but shit like this will not be tolerated. Kenny Glenn is the new example of how the internet truly is serious business.
