A Tall Hot Glass of Shut the F*** Up.

November 9th, 2009 → 4 Comments

The images in today’s blog showed up when I google image searched for “nothing.”

After a few conversations this weekend among friends, I realize how important it is to take a break from hustling so feverishly. Especially from social networking sites. I know, I know, blogging is good marketing.

I mean, I know that keeping up your tweets is all part of how we show that we’re here and important.

But dude, I’m tired now of living life, then reporting on it, so as to keep people interested in purchasing me as a cultural commodity. And not all things need to go said. And people won’t totally forget me if I stop blogging and updating FB right? At least for a week or two? I mean, will I not be able to make a living if my “pixels get old”?

I was reading in an article in the Huffington Post how to get your free time back. It recommended getting off of Facebook.

I’m going to take break from Facebook and blogging as I take a moment for some inner dialogue.

I also need to study my lines for the four different shows I have this weekend. I need to get situated in what I care about again.

There are four shows this week I’d like to plug. They are listed below…. If you want to know what’s on my mind, come to the shows instead!

    I think I agree with you. I am weening myself off facebook & more or less constant email checking.

    This post is brilliant. I love all of the different ways to say "nothing".

    I'm one of the few Facebook holdouts. Life without facebook.com is like paying cash or walking into an actual library and checking out an actual book.

    All that's missing is a sundial and smoke signals.
