Give nothing

Day 82. 46 pages, 19,379 words.

Yesterday, I ran into this amusing website and video. Take a watch, it’s well worth it.

I’m not really sure just what the submit-your-own videos are meant to achieve, but it was a fun idea so I made a video. I doubt it will end up on the site, but whatever. I want to do more than just blog and Facebook angrily about bigots (but less than go out and punch them!), so this is something.

Will it make me stop sniggering or grinning at (or even making) dumb racist jokes, under certain circumstances?

I don’t know. Probably not, but it’s given me some cause to think.

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.
