and Julius, regarding your first point of contention: were you not aware of someecards.com before they became a popular "share" on Facebook? because they've been around for years and almost always feature a period scene (whether it be the image of a 1950s nuclear family or something from the French Renaissance period or whenever) along with a modern observation. it's the juxtaposition between the two that is supposed to make it funny, i think...but when less funny people began making their own memes in that style, it lost a lot of its charm.


No, I had no idea. Thanks for straightening me out. I still think those memes should die a horrible death though. :lol:

maybe you should step away from the computer for a bit, Jules :lol:


Sometimes I posted about love, a food for thought piece, politics, monsanto (and to call you out a bit, Jules, you responded to one of my posts quite a while back, with undefended arguments in support of gmos - and I posted numerous sites and documentaries to argue the opposite. You said you didn't want to watch them. so if you call someone out, you should watch what they've watched and have a debate about it, don't expect cliff notes - we're not here to do your research for you, baller :tongue: ).


Can't argue with needing to step away from the computer! See, I have no actual life so I require FB to validate what a brilliantly funny person I am every day. :grin:

As for the documentaries. . . "Here, go watch this 2-hour video that could easily be explained in 5 content-heavy sentences" will just never be the right answer for me.

I never get pissed off about Facebook because I pretty much don't read people's posts in the first place. If I get something in my newsfeed and it makes me feel aggravated/annoyed/anything negative I immediately hide it and it's done a pretty good job of remembering what I hate :lol:

When I repeatedly find myself hiding stuff from people, and it's usually stuff from people I barely know or don't know at all in person, I oftentimes unsubscribe from them entirely. Mostly what I do on Facebook is keep in touch with people I've actually hung out and enjoy spending time with in person. There are occasional people that I am "friends" with I might have met through someone or just met online but if I find that I am not talking to them often or getting anything out of it I'm pretty likely to unfriend. The only other thing is contacts that might be part of my network when I start doing stuff professionally within the music business and they are most likely to stay in place even if I don't get a chance to talk to them often.

It's for that reason I'll probably never have more than about 200 friends maximum, once I get beyond that I usually start deleting people. :dunno:

OK, and do you realize that re-posting things from sites such as "Being Liberal" completely destroys your credibility with everyone who you are trying to convince about your point of view? I got news for you, that stuff is called "propaganda." Look it up. Nobody who doesn't already share your rigid views is going to pay any mind to it.


Wow.. somebody is cranky today! :lol:

Throwing out degrading insults to sum up the debate...all over my newsfeed this morning and, to me, quite surprising. I wouldn't high five anyone over an insult but see the point that some are just seeking that.
I am appreciating the very few thoughtful summations.

Interesting as I went through my friend list the other day, I axed about 7 people. Even though I don't "talk" to everyone all the time they are still important to me. Between high school, town, here, the music scene currently and from back when, etc. I'm over 400... I think.

this. i think they just like hearing themselves talk and getting high fives from those who agree with them. then again, i feel the same way about most posts about Monsanto, vegetarianism, bacon, and a lot of other things.

Me: Ok, what do you want to watch when it's your turn to pick?
Aidan: The Walking Dead
Me: Um, NO! Nice try though.
Aidan: Dammit.

Deep breaths. . . and they're off! I'm really big on content, and really down on hyperbole. The media is bad enough as it is but facebook is really driving it home for me. I don't even care if I agree with the sentiment, which I often do, it's the presentation of it that irks me irrationally beyond belief.

My apologies to all of you who shared this one recently. . . but I'm going to use you as an example. This meme from the Grateful Dead Tour page was the perfect illustration:

OK, so I totally agree with the words. But what is with the mommy and daddy and child with a newspaper looking all old school like a perfect family from the 1950s. Am I missing something or is that total hyperbole? Is it funny in some way and I'm just missing the humor?

end of part 1.

So apparently Aidan has been getting up early in the a.m and watching the walking dead on the sly

I confronted him, and said "Why did you stop watching this episode halfway thru? was it too scary?" (love that netflix lets me look at recently watched and it's in order and timestamped)

he said "no. the Korean guy and that girl were gonna have sex and THAT'S DISGUSTING! so I turned it off and played Sonic the Hedgehog instead"
