So, I haven't blogged in awhile... Mainly because I haven't felt like it. Wait. That's not true. I have felt like blogging on a few occasions but I ended up not blogging. Why? I guess I've been feeling a general aversion to the internet. Well, ok, at first I thought it was an aversion to the computer as a whole because I wasn't writing. I wasn't writing because I accidentally deleted something without saving and it pissed me off so much I just shut down on that project. So, I thought I was avoiding my computer out of writer's block. Like a fuck you to the PC. Fuck you Word. Even though it was my fault. Human error. So, to get myself out of my rut and back on the stupid PC, I re-installed Sims 2. I figured, I'll build a few houses, make some families, screw 'em all up, kill 'em off, and feel better about myself and the computer thus back to writing.

But then I wrote a short.  I didn't mean to. It just happened. Like a film short. Or, well, will actually end up being a digital short. But still I wrote something, damn it. So, it wasn't the computer or writer's block. It was the internet I was avoiding! Ah ha!

But why?

I dunno... I guess I suddenly felt overwhelmed by all the new social networking sites because you have to be on the latest site or you're just not with it, man. MySpace is so yesterday it makes bell bottoms look trendy. So, ok, once I figured out MySpace I had to go join Facebook and learn a new interface. Argh! But then, OMG, don't forget LinkedIn the Facebook for adults. And so on and so forth... It's like, for crying out loud can't we just leave it at one?

Nevermind having to keep up with the latest internet attraction so I have something to talk about at parties. What's the latest wicked YouTube? Who's the newest web phenom? What's the latest political hubbub or blooper?

God, I just can't keep up!

(Because I just don't care.)

I'm so bored with the internet. I feel like that commercial where the dude is surfing the web and he comes to a pop up that says YOU HAVE REACHED THE END OF THE INTERNET GO BACK. That's how I feel.

And now I've run out of words... How do I cure myself of the internet repulsion? Or do I want to cure myself? It's not like I haven't been on interesting adventures (like the Blackstar Canyon demon task force) or worked on fun projects (like PG Porn). It's not like I have nothing to say (cause Lord knows I cannot get my inner monologue to ever shut up). I guess I'm just going through a phase... So, if I don't reply to a message or email right away, don't take it personally. I'm just not that into the internet right now.

Update: With the advent of Twitter and Tumblr, everything changed, obviously...
