Holy toledo!!! Look at this shit!! I finally got my shit together (for the moment) and managed to write a post on Friday. If you follow the blog often you’d may have noticed my Friday post gradually disappeared over the last few months. I wish I could say that I just haven’t had time to write it but that would be a total fucking lie. I have just been a lazy shit and not written one. I also keep going back and forth on the idea of branching out and writing about all topics instead of just the Film Industry. This too has been something that if you follow the site you may have noticed I’ve written about numerous times. However today I decided that I’m just going to commit. The Friday Post from here on out will not be connected to the Film Industry. I mean it may in some ways but for the most part they will be post just like this one. Random as FUCK!!! They will all be under the F.I.F (Fuck it Friday) submenu till further notice. Alright let’s get into this shall we?
Oh FaceBook, you’re such an odd medium and tool for people. Personally I’m still a newb to all these social media platforms. I’ve only existed in the social realm for a little over 2 years. I can’t even imagine what it must be like for people who have been on these things for 10 plus years. That’s 10 years of your life that you have voluntarily shared with the world. That’s insane. I mean think about the time before FB. There was no platform to share all your experiences and life with all of your family simultaneously. Unfortunately I think I may have missed out on all the fun-loving caring sharing that was going on when this thing first started and that I see all the time on that new FB commercial. I came in once all the negative terrible trolling and bullshit started polluting in it seems. I wish I could say that when I scroll through my feed of family and friends all I see is THEIR photos, videos, personal thoughts, messages, things they created…be it a poem, a song, a painting..you know things that are personal to them and that they want to share with others, but it’s not. All day long all I do is scroll through a sea of stuff they all shared from somewhere else. Everyone just constantly linking shit ALL DAY LONG. Remember back in the day when you would hear some news and immediately jumped on the phone to call everyone you’ve ever known to tell them about it? No you don’t because we didn’t do that. If we heard some news we’d probably call the people we regularly talk to in our day-to-day lives but in no way are we yelling it from the top of the rooftop for everyone you ever met to hear. That’s what I envision people doing when they post all this shit. News Videos clips, Food Recipes, Political Propaganda, Religious Propaganda, Inspirational Quotes…SO. MANY. QUOTES. Who the hell is all this inspiration inspiring? Has anyone ever really read one of these couple of line inspirational post and changed their lives because of it. I’m not trying to shit on the people who write these things. I have definitely found some good ones and shared them but I know some people whose entire feed is like this. And it’s a bit weird to see certain people who I know personally post some of this stuff because I know damn well they don’t believe or practice any of these positive messages they are pedaling. I call people out too and not in the comments section or on FB. I either call or txt them. Here’s a great example. My mother who I love with all my heart and daily thank in my head for my existence the other day shared this post:
I immediately called her shortly after she posted this to address this because she has never ONCE done any of these things. EVER!! The first one is easily the funniest ones because my mom, grandmother (her mom), dad & sister have all on multiple occasions locked the door behind me when I would step outside to get the mail or to walk the dog when I’ve come to visit. Here’s proof:
I told my mom I was just going to walk the dog and then she locked the door and jumped in the shower and I sat here for about 10 minutes. I know some may argue that maybe she was speaking about when she was a kid, maybe she was speaking about those “good ole days” that everyone keeps going on about but that no one can pin point exactly when “the good ole days” were but as I mentioned my grandmother lives with them back home and my mom is a carbon copy of my grandmother. I never understood my moms irrational fear of leaving the door unlocked until my grandmother moved in with us. My sister now is following down the same path. As soon as anyone steps outside she rushes to lock the door because she fears bad people are going to rush in and pillage and plunder. The keys in the ignition thing is just ridiculous in every way. Why in the Fuck would anyone leave the car running to waste gas. I don’t even understand this one moving on. Sleep with your window open. Once again I had to call bullshit on this one as well. I grew up in Miami Florida everyone. No one and I repeat NO ONE opens their windows unless their AC is busted, they don’t have an AC or they live at or near the beach. Miami is hot and humid and just really not window opening weather.
So getting back to my point why do people post shit like this? Is it because they just have developed this mental routine that they need to post something daily..hourly so they just scour all the groups they belong to and other social platforms and share share share. I honestly don’t even think most the people watch, read or listen to the crap they link to. They just want to share it with everyone in case someone else out there cares. The shit is seriously just out of control. Here’s one more hilarious example before I wrap this up. I had a family member a few weeks ago pedaling around this photo:
A picture of non other than muthafuckin’ Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi who she obviously didn’t look at just read the words and hit that share button to show her Jesus pride. I know, I know you may be saying “it’s just an honest mistake” but when one of my other family members tried to correct her and tell her that this was in fact Ewan McGregor she said “NO that’s Jesus, didn’t you read the caption”. SMH.
I was going to attempt to share more than one of my pet peeves in this post but as one can tell that didn’t quite work out because once I start going I can’t stop and now here we are 1000 plus words in which is what I like to keep these to because I know you have things to do. So I’ll definitely be revisiting this topic again soon. However just to wrap this one up let me say that I just wish people on my feed and in general would post more about themselves and stuff that they do or are involved with instead just linking and sharing all this stuff that we all already see or will see at some point because any viral news, videos, pictures or whatever that goes on the internet is always seen by everyone eventually.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out The Fuck It Friday Post here at We’re Not Rolling. I hope you enjoyed the read and I look forward to many more of these random topic posts. Have a fantastic 3 day weekend!
