Unnamed by How Peculiar.

Although this poem may be a little dark, but I love it because it’s the simplicity of the poem that justifies and creates an impact. It may not be polished and dusted like those sort of poems out there, but it’s creative art – art can be anything so long as it’s justified.

In the event of an event, I do say, keep an eye on an eye and pray

for the end of a beginning and a pause of the occurring, keep calm

whilst the sound of swift missiles and stealthy bombs explode near

you.

Keep your chin up as black rain falls upon you and burns through

your beautiful, delicate skin.

You needn’t worry in a world like this,

because it’s only the start of a conclusion

and the end of a deep red abyss.

Foamy Squirrel : Auto Correct

Ah, I’m waiting for the time where I’m going to be told off for ranting too much – and that’s fine, because I will debate back and hope we come to a mutual understanding. But today, and possibly tomorrow, I feel like getting my writer hands on.

In relation to my debate about mainstream music brainwashing our generation; our views of what is morally right and wrong, to the likes and imbalance of negativity and positivity; the one true element that thrives in these rants is how we are dependent on certain things, such as technology. In Foamy’s rant [above], he addresses how we’ve become so complacent with auto-correct; machines and programs that simply spell the word correctly for us, instead of attempting to spell it out for ourselves [that’s how I learn/t how to spell things], rather than physically getting a dictionary to look the word up. Yet, the internet has opened doors for us so we don’t have to physically flip pages to find the correct spelling. I do in fact like to have a dictionary and a thesaurus on me [pocket ones] wherever I go – because internet is not always readily available on the serve. People may think that’s embarrassing and degrading, but I like to think that I can still read and use books! Give a person who’s only used auto-correct and Google search for spelling and grammar, and they will complain it’s taking too long to find the page. Most likely lines to be said would be: “I wish there was a search box” or “I wish books had ctrl+f” [which is the find shortcut], or simply “I can’t be bothered”.

AND… PEOPLE DO NOT PROOF READ!! I sometimes don’t, and that is why I get someone else to read my work, just in case. But most of the time, I try to proof read my work – I say it out loud – I don’t care. I may miss something, but that’s normal. I’m not perfect, I too make mistakes, but I try to address and improve these, whether with someone or with books; I still have the ability to read and write to some extent of correctness.

Foamy Squirrel : You’re Too Negative

Foamy addresses the issue with people who have a problem with the ever-mass of negative thinking, including his way of enlightening the unseen and unconscious in a satirical way. I enjoy this entertaining, satirical cartoon. Some people will frown and screw their noses up at this, simply because it’s a cartoon. Well, so is Family Guy, American Dad, The Simpsons, Beavis and Butthead, South Park, Superjail!, and so on. These are just the few examples of satirical cartoons. I was watching Foamy Squirrel once, and an on-looker asked “Why the f*ck are you watching cartoons?”, I turned around to him and said “Simply because he is explaining the issue with people like you; how ignorant you are, and how you lack any genuineness”. He scowled a little and hovered away. However, I was marked from that day on, and ended up getting into a fight with this bloke.

Returning to Foamy’s rant, he’s highlighting those people who plug their ears up and ignore the negative hell around them. They’d rather create this illusion that everything is simply fine and unreal. Of course, there is a vivid amount of naivety floating about in the waters of reality; while those who take a realistic view, tend to be one extreme on either end of the spectrum [that’s your irrational superegos].But, there are those who hold a realistic view that is balanced. There always has to be a balance of negativity and positivity. That’s the one thing we cannot tame: balance.

I stand with Foamy’s rant, because people out there do fail to address the negative and positive properly, and realistically. Furthermore, I understand how he feels toward the people who constantly email him, complaining he’s too negative. Sure, if he offends the beliefs of the audience, hadn’t it been their choice to watch his videos? Like he says, “Too negative? Where the f*ck have you been for 10 years?” Surely those who have been following Foamy for 10 years, would know by now that he does not address the likes of your desires in a sparkly way. It annoys me too, because Foamy has the balls to rant about such things – he isn’t afraid to – and it’s up to the viewer to actually watch it. Some of these people are obviously internet trolls and have nothing better to do. They live a sad and lonely life, only to find pleasure by wanking themselves off to the misery of others – to which I like to point out, is extremely sick. I pity those sort of people, because they will forever hold their grey hairs and rotting joys of hurting and annoying people for the rest of their lives. Again, are probably people who have no respect for others, and only take what they are given for granted. Spoilt? Perhaps. But definitely have an embedded mental malformation. Perhaps loaded with money? Well good for them. They obviously hadn’t earned it in a worth-while way.

So, to conclude, yes, like Foamy, I too don’t understand why people trudge out of their way to only watch something that offends them, knowingly they’ve read the description – if not, had been too lazy to get off their fat arse and read it – and had to email a complaint, because he’s “too negative”. Well, if they had the balls, would they have addressed these real-time issues? Obviously not, because they had to email the creator who is only representing those who do share, find and understand what he is integrating into our naive minds. Sometimes I disagree with Foamy’s views, but I try to take a balanced view of what he says, there, I understand what he means, thus broadening my understanding of the world. But because he’s blunt, people clearly have a problem with straight-forward answers, and fail to see the world in a realistic light.
