Self Speak: A Blog about a Blog

Has anyone thought of making a blog about a blog? 

Of course, there have been reviews about movies, fantasies, novels, novelties, music, musicals, CDs, commentaries, etc. But, in the sheer criticizing nature of our humanity, be it disagreeable (see i'm doing it), fallacious, malicious, extravagant, horrifying, experiential, uneducated or simply thoughless, we spatter, spill, eject or release words agreeing or refuting another's thoughts within the highly congested social network. 

It might suggest that we are always in an argumentative mood whenever we see a message in print shooting bulleted tomatoes at our favorite films tortured by his words of dissatisfaction. 

Or, his thoughts about Neverland is indeed a non-existence since he believes wholeheartedly that fantasy is never a reality. 

Or, he tries (at least) to make you believe that Santa Claus will indeed come to town this Christmas even though his fake beard (very obvious) has never been washed in twenty years in his profile photo. 

Some even wage fights in an online game somewhere (over the rainbow) in this internet universe. They haven't even thought publicizing their match-ups through different social network site advertisements (with all the interactive mouse click glory). I'm sure if they did on YouTube, they would rouse even the sleepy of its subscribers to witness the brutal exchange of home videos, white-wall-backgrounded self video speeches, and copy-and-paste video creations with the topic revolving around the "Best Kids Show in the World: Sesame Street vs. Batibot vs. The Ellen DeGeneres Show".

Good thing, the most structured of it all, which had started from a blog, was the one made by the always dancing John Chu (director of Step UP series) to actually make a dance-off between the Obamanators and the McCainiacs. The winner would place "The White House" name at stake changing it to "The Hood". You guess what happened...

The Internet made it even more convenient for the keyboard tapping, "what does this button do" mentality obsessed society to paste instant replies to go on further with the highly "symbolic" conversations. They would make something like this :)...a dancing banana... :(..., etcetera. Better try doing the Morse Code to elevate the rungs of your social network commenting career ladder. If you could do that, you are a rocket scientist.
Some even claim blogs as their own. It's like being a Grade 6 child with this little Gundam toy made painstakingly in a week by his Grade 2 brother. Grade 6 claimed he made it. Won the school championship. End of story. Respect the "copy"right, or the "being copied" rights.           
Some people might say that we have been given this degree of freedom to express ourselves to the point of snatching photos here and there like picking apples from Egypt (if there indeed are apples there). Cutting pictures to the max and pasting them in animation websites, photo simulation programs and the most dreaded (lightning) Photoshop (erasing large zits, loading 12%, 3 hours left). Many place stencilled messages right on the face signifying supreme hate and fascination. 

Internet = large spray paint arena = canvass = scrapbook = peeping toms = catwalk = the Fibonacci number

Seriously speaking , blogs are portals for everyone to enter. Be careful of what you place inside (especially your not-so-good-moment pictures and NBI records) in every social networking site. It is through every account that people believe you sputter your identity. It is who you are in the different places in the world. Believe me. You have a virtual person inside this digital, articificial universe. Converse properly. 

Don't speak when your mouth is full.
