“To see and listen to the wicked is already the beginning of wickedness.”
Please discontinue following links to:
FOX News face palms, tabloid-driven click bait, endless internet ‘quizzes’ (i.e., Which Kardashian Are You?) all of which destroy your day’s allotment of time (as well as your brain cells).
Also: Any news item related to Sarah Palin’s community access TV show, the latest spew of logorrhea from Rush Limbaugh’s anal blow hole, nonsensical declarations from the GOP related to same sex marriage or Mexicans, etc.
All of this stuff is bad for you.
It makes you feel shitty about life and only serves to goad the creators of this content to MAKE MORE OF IT.
Realize what is happening to publishing, on every level. Advertising dollars are tough to land, and if you’re a ‘content creator’, you secure ad money by framing the most carnival culture-driven content you can concoct and then present it to the monkeys trawling FB’s gated community.
Contemplate this truth from Annie Dillard, and then get your shit together!
“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
