I’ve been getting a lot of “feedback” from both anon’s and registered users of Tumblr. Some of it in agreement, some of it constructively critical/thoughts to chew on, and some of it just hate speech. But I am reveling in it. I’m not even going to lie. Even the haters of the Tumblr world/internet (who send quite lovely messages about “us liberals” being all the same and obnoxious [I’m making it more polite and censored than most of it is]) are making me positively giddy. Not with judgment, although it would be easy to find myself in that boat. Yes, some of it is rage resulting from uninformed opinions that are blindly formed based on political party affiliation, upbringing, popular opinion, homophobia, racial/gender privilege, etcetera. But, seeing people care, even if they’re absolutely wrong or ridiculous or rude or even hypocritical, makes me happy. Why? Because this fricken world is full of so much apathy that sometimes it just completely overwhelms me and makes me sick.
I’ve been real apathetic about this blog lately. I’ve sort of been in a “book hangover”, courtesy of Camus, Cioran, Kafka, Orwell, and Malcom X. But rest assured, I have been drawing, and keeping up with the Torres-Ampersand project. But, I’ve been failing to post and I know it. I’ll get back on it after this week. I say that in seriousness, as I have the un-erasable internet here to hold me accountable.
