Why am I not surprised? Honestly, in my mind I’ve always had this impending sense of doom, like the world is already so overpopulated, disconnected, selfish and apocalypse-worthy.
So much of our culture is about sacrificing what was, and what could be, for what we can get now. Disposable people, disposable products, disposable world.
Maybe it all isn’t so bad. I’m having a great time in life right now! Been dating and enjoying the process of writing book #2, every time Sons of Anarchy comes on when I’m cuddling with a girl they always want sex! I think it’s the violence that turns them on.
Radiation in the ocean? Hey, as long as the beer is cold and the boobs perky, that’s someone else’s problem.
Now I’m waking up at 5 AM instead of going to bed. Had a very odd dream about an erotic encounter in a Canadian Tire.
I just got a 5-star review of my novel posted up on Amazon.ca:
“This book is the ‘Requiem for a Dream’ version of today’s ‘Romantic-Comedy’. The author vividly brings you into the life of a young man named Dylen, who lives in a dark world full of sex, booze and drugs. He is on a conquest to find love, while filling the empty void with vapid, shallow, yet gorgeous, ‘pod girls’. This book spins you through the routine of today’s young singles, while giving you insight into the conscious dilemma people now face when it comes to dating and love in the 21st century. Dylen is a narcissistic, egomaniac but somehow has you rooting for him to find love in the end. I couldn’t put this book down!”
…folllowed by a testamonial from a reader I happened to run into while sauced up in Gastown. Hopefully she posts hers up soon!
Some people might ask, “but Jason, do you need such a big office space?”
The answer is yes!
You could wear a potato sack as clothing, most of us do not. External expressions often mimic internal thoughts about oneself, in this case, the open-loft concept I live in allows me to constantly change things around, put up art, and adapt to whatever creative mindset I’m in at the time. My latest changes were to open the curtains and shed light on this space, right around the time I built this blog to shine a light on myself.
