At A Medium Paceon Friday, November 10, 2006 at 7:57 pm
People always talk about the same nonsense. Just for once I’d like to rant about something without having to think of what people will say about it, or an interesting point, or some huge sweeping statement for people to quote later. I mean I could spend my time blathering on about why I feel inadequate because I never seem to follow through with my good ideas, or why the world is run by people in the ‘know’, or why I bother and writing rants when I’m clearly not the kind of guy that even cares enough to write rants regularly.
Not many of you would be surprised by this fact, but I have been setting my Internet Explorer homepage to Megatokyo for something like 6 years now. Every 2-3 days you can rely of Fred, Dom, Seraphim or some other guest blogging on about various things that concern them. Honestly,… I’m in awe of those guys because I can rarely keep a cognitive sentence going out loud, except if its one based on me hating something. Those guys seem to be able to take something like a football game and a fly swatter and make the two inter-relate in a way that’s entertaining and makes you think. I mean those guys get a helluv mail not only about the comic itself, but also about the rants they write and ‘why they should ‘*insert nonsense demand here*’…
Fred has this awesome insane chimp approach to typing out something that I can never seem to replicate, I on the other hand have a more stoned gorilla approach. Maybe all that writing ability is just a talent I haven’t learnt, maybe its because they feel the duty to inform their loyal readers more regularly, maybe their replying to the oceans of emails they receive, or maybe they just feel more passionately about things than I do. Maybe this comic might one-day manage to escape the gravity-well that is my own head, but until then you’ll have to be satisfied with my progress this far.
