it is with much pride (well, actually mostly apathy) that I now declare this year, the official "YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE"..
why do I say this?
well.. it's probably just me..
but, so far this year.. most of my time has been mindlessly spent doing the following..
mindlessly working non-stop additions / supplements / tweaks / corrections to a mindnumbing educational CD-ROM project.. that's dragged on for months beyond it's used-by-date..
mindlessly watching seemingly nonstop 24 hour CNN / BBC world footage of troops crawling over IRAQ, endless news conferences with various government and military leaders.. rambling endless statistics, platitudes and other mindnumbing shrapnel of meaningless propaganda soundbytes..
mindlessly killing hours on end, playing mindnumbing computer games, to somehow get away from the other mindnumbingness..
mindlessly downing tonnes of beer, at mindless (yet cheerfully distractive) live music gigs, with other seemingly mindless individuals escaping to the weekend from THEIR mindless weekday jobs.. killing time.. killing braincells..
I remembered reading a while back, that with the current worldwide overconsumption of coffee and other caffeinated products.. there'll soon be a shortage of coffee.. and either (a) the prices will skyrocket (b) they'll dilute everything..
now I suspect it's already happenin'..
coz, these caffeine hits I'm takin'.. ain't doing shit..
barely able to lift a raised finger to give a shit..
perhaps all the vitamins have been boiled out've life, as filtered thru the media, thru the apathy of civilized life..
when you no longer seem to have the power to actually inact change in the world..
care factor zero..
when there's a lot to get angry about, but nothing to be inspired by..
care factor zero..
year of the zombie..
yip yip YAY!
