This LIFE is semi-retired.

Hi! I'm updating this space to tell you guys that this second, seemingly, kinda, sort of unsuccessful attempt at deeply documenting my thoughts I call a blog will now be semi-retired. Facebook status updates and tweeting are a lot easier these days to blab about things like my views on life, society, and current events. Blogging, however, takes a little bit of thought. Heck, even THIS pinned post takes a while to be typed too.

The NARNIA division, however, I shall try and actively live it up; where I'll say good or crappy things about films, TV series, music, video games, events, or literature I have read... if this lazy-leech thing ever comes off of my brain, that is. 'Till then.


You are douche bags, dear brain and social media.

Hi. An epiphany just struck me (well, not REALLY an epiphany per se, I just REALLY wanna write something here). So, there's these things called Facebook and Twitter (and many other equally unsuccessful ripoffs of the mentioned social media giants), right? At first, I think it's kinda cool and all for these social media sites to encourage people to not be afraid on spurting whatever it is than runs through their train of thoughts. That said, it is also a bad thing to do.

You may not know this, but our brain can be a big ass douche bag sometimes. Why do you think in actions films the bad guys are always depicted as being super-intelligent and are always given the trait of stylishness? Because it's what they THINK is the right thing to do; they don't FEEL any of that could have serious repercussions. While the good guys? They don't really THINK if any of their dangerous acts of valour might backfire him to the point that he could endanger his own life, but in his heart, he FEELS that it is the only and right thing to do in order to protect his loved ones... which in turn makes him THINK of the best ways possible to save himself, his beloved, and many others who needs to be saved. What happens then? The good guy always wins and the bad guys, despite their elaborate plans to execute bad deeds which are always full-proof in their eyes, are backfired big time in the end. Did any of these things ever occured to you when you watch these films, other than using it as mere escapism? 

Interesting enough, when you watch films that features highly cool and impossible feats that the hero performs, coupled with mesmerising visual effects and tough guy talk, or even a film in a fantasy setting where none of that will never ever exist or happen in the real world, you'll probably got sucked into these films so immensely, that you FORGOT you are actually in the real world, just so that you can FEEL indestructable and able to pull of crazy stunts that you can never do in real life. See how related these things are?

Just make sure both your brain and your heart are always on the same page. Just make sure that both of these organs debate against each other inside of you before you go all apeshit in that virtual, unrealistic world we call the Internet; or in this context, the so-called social media. The world is a vast place, despite the fact that the Internet made it smaller. Which also means that freaks can easily pull off some crazy things to you personally, or just mess with everyone on one fell swoop by being that douche bag who likes to posts fabricated or totally made up facts that isn't even true in the first place, or that douche bag who always argue or provoke a heated thread of conversations just to feed his own sick pleasure of watching the society falls apart just because of some pettily stupid comments or remarks, or that douche bag who just think that it's fine to let go of his pathetically lame alter ego trapped inside for good reasons who goes around embarassing himself instead.

P/S: Social media is also responsible for me to get confused where should I channel my inner artistry without worrying about its exclusivity. Should I just post on my personal blog, or on a team blog I administer, or just post it up on the social media, or put it up in printed form? Fuck you for confusing me, Internet.
