I’m supposed to be writing my essay right now but I really need to rant before I can do anything sensible. It feels very strange to be ranting to this faceless, bodyless, mindless entity that is THE INTERNET but I can’t find any of my friends and I’d prefer not to get the reputation as Wellingtons crazy ranter.
Its so ironic that I’m writing this thing on my phone but it needs to come out somehow.
This began in my head as a rant against the apple company because they have declared my iPod hazardous material and dangerous to open because it needs a new battery and they just want me to buy a new one. But I can’t buy a new one because they are absurdly expe sive and the dead one I own isn’t even new, which is probably why its dead. So now I dont have any of my music which is a huge factor in keeping me sane and that just sucks. So I was mad at corporate trickery that makes us consume more. But then I realized that I cannot blame someone for making me do anything especially being dependent on my iPod. (Ew, even my phone recognizes the brand name) that’s my fault. I bought it, I subscribe to their shit. So now I’m mad at myself for not having music, being a stupid ass pawn of the corporate scheme of consumption, not being better at the mandolin or replacing iPod(ew) batteries, being dependent on that system, falling into the trap of being irrationally mad at the system and wanting to take it out in places that are not at fault (like the women at the store) and most of all posting it all on a stupid blog that does not even know how to spell. Who the Fuck wants to post their innermost thoughts on a blog that follows the stupid fashion of lazy 21st century teenagers?
