-precursor- i didn't know where else to post this but in a&m-

so a few days ago i called it quits on FB. call it anger, animosity, or just tired of the platform itself....there's been so many reasons for A LOT of ppl to avoid it altogether but for me it was just lack of empathy from my so-called "friends". & they're all a mix of highschool ppl, guys i travelled with, FNB people, guys i partied with or met in jail... some complete strangers: attached to me cuz of their significant others... So an odd mix of individuals...

But when a sniper (later recognized as a woman off her meds with an airsoft rifle) was taking pot shots at runners in downtown San Diego & i posted about it, the lack of "are you okay?" or even an "oh shit! thats hella close to your pad" literally pissed me off to the degree of being done with facebook. maybe ppl were offline you say, or just busy with their lives & for that i digress but even 12 hours AFTER still no concern i bagged the account and said "no more".

So what has become of us as a society that can't so much as reach out via phone or email after a violent attack as this??

Don't know where I'm going with this but felt it should be shared....
Stay off FB & spend time on squattheplanet instead. I've felt more connection here than anyother platform... And FUCK mark fuckerberg too!!

Facebook is to human connection what televangelism is to spirituality. I've been held up at gunpoint by more honest individuals...

Just quit FB too. It's a total time-waster.

thats how Matt makes his money. Snitching to the police about the where abouts and goings ons of all you hoboes. So just thank matt when you get woken up by the pigs at 2 in the morning sleeping under that bridge and getting asked what you're doing there.

There is a good book on the subject called "filling the void:emotion, capitalism and social media". I took it at a library, so y'all can check it out too. It pretty much breaks down on how Facebook and co operates.
It's all about money for big corporations. They set up their algorithms based on solely that interest. No-one cares that people don't see your posts. And it is true, they don't see you posts in their feed. Even if it's your suicidal note. It is really nothing personal, altho a lot of people, myself included, tend take it that way. It is how Facebook operates. If you care about amount of followers there are ways to do it, I mean, there is a profeasion called social media marketing advicer, because people hire those to get followers. It is all business and capitalism. No wonder it is a turn off for people who aren't into that. I also hope fpr squat the planet to never turn into that ditection. Even tho, I'm sure making $ of the web must be tempting

Funny, back then it was just a funny feeling...

Guess I just wasn't a joiner...

Now it seems like prophesy.

Cheers!

Goocho only follows me! Lol.
The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"
going crazy..
i dont get people. i am heartbroken, society disappointed and road sick for the last few months.. i need help..
Happy 40th birthday, jonestown massacre.

You ever just look at a word and it freaks you out because it's spelled right but you start thinking on some meta shit how does this noise mean this concept? 'Smooth' freaks me out right now.
