The moral of this weekend is…

Nothing much going on this weekend but I will be away from the ol’ keyboard. Plus, my final set of work finally materialised, so I will be busy once again and regretfully won’t have much time to put into the blog. Still working on a few things.

In the meantime, check out this video. Sadly I couldn’t get this mash-up on YouTube, but the Free Hugs Project rally attendances are quite interesting to see. There’s a few of them scattered around YouTube but they’re mostly depressing Trump rally videos.

Definitely worth a look if you want to regain a little bit of faith in humanity.

Of course, some study of the U.S. political process will probably then show you how tragically unlikely it is anything sane is going to happen in this election, so this will be the only restoration of faith that’s going to happen in the foreseeable future. But oh well. Nice while it lasted.

Sorry about that.

 

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    Christ man thank you for this. Doesn’t that just fucking say it all? Well, doesn’t it just.

        Not to beat a dead horse, but I was thinking obviously these Trump supporters would defend themselves by saying something along the lines of “well, we’re pretty angry at the way things are right now in America. Sorry ”

        Of course as you know, we Bernie supporters are pretty fucking angry too. But we direct that anger at a corrupt system, and corrupt ideologies, not at people we don’t know who have different skin pigmentation. And never in person to someone who is being friendly at the moment. That was just gross and racist, to quote Mister Affleck in quite apropos fashion.
