Stuffing birds

I've erased what I was going to write at least 5 times now. There's something I want to say but I'm not sure I can make it sound interesting enough. To be quite honest, it's not interesting, and therefore doesn't need to sound interesting.
I wish I could write about something interesting. But the only thing I really know is myself and what I know, and trust me I don't know that much.
But I do want to address something. This is the state of being-thyselfism. Or that's what I shall call it.


I'm going to tell you a little secret. No one cares who you are. Now, it sounds much more depressing than it really is. No one cares if I like indie or if I like rap, no one cares if I like pink or if I like black. So I guess what I'm getting at is you might as well keep it simple, that way you don't need to keep track of your lies.
Though lies are sometimes all you can do. Lie. Like this amazing book by Mr Stephen Fry

Whom I, by the way, adore.
I'm not sure where we'd all be without lies. No more politics. No more religion. No more... doubt.
But there would be so much more cruelty. Imagine all those nasty thoughts inside your head, they're all out in the open. Imagine how many people are going to be hurt.
Imagine no politics. In a sense politics are kind of like religion. It's a system greater than yourself put there by people "greater than yourself" to keep you in order. To give you the illusion of choice, of freedom, of care. To give you rules to follow, guidelines that you compete for like schoolkids compete for grades. Who's the most pure, who hasn't strayed. Your criminal record is like your purity rings, or whatever it is they wear- you're clean and pure and innocent.
Not that I'm saying go do criminal things, go go go, because that's not at all what I'm saying.
I don't know what I'm saying.
I guess what I'm saying is it's not a contest, and that it's a lie. But it might be something we need. Talking about government and politics here, not religion, for that's something I find completely useless and purely harmful for all living forms of... life.
Anyway, go and do whatever you like. That's the best.

/end random tangent


  1. The liar is a fantastic book. It confused me thoguh the first time, as it wasn't in chronological order. I tried rearanging it in a time base ordered, but realised when I had finished that it's never meant to be read in a chronological order, but the order it's in simply makes more sense.

    If you're interested in lying, there's a movie called "the invention of lying". It's a comedy, and it parodies the world you more or less describe. check it out :3

  2. yeah i've seen it :D i love ricky gervais, haha
