The Big Switch

I know, I know, BlackBerry for life.  I was the same way, and always said I would never give in to the evils of the iPhone.  Things done changed.

Two weeks ago, I’m sitting in my office when Meghan (my girlfriend) walks in.  I was confused because very rarely does she venture down to the “trap”.  I was on a call, but once I was done she pulls this little black box out of her purse and puts it on my desk.  She apparently went out that afternoon and bought his & hers iPhones.

Fuck, I was ecstatic and confused all at the same time.  What am I going to say to all my fellow BlackBerry comrads, and all the people I preached the gospel to?  Am I some sort of smart phone Uncle Tom?  I must confess, I am thoroughly impressed and this device has now become the biggest distraction in my life.  I can catch a fucking Twitter and blog from this thing.  All aboard the loser cruiser.  I am officially now “that” asshole.

Where you been at…

Posted in Uncategorized by acidsquid on September 28, 2009

So, I have been sleeping on this blog shit for a minute.  I’ve been through a couple, dumped a Blogspot a while back to start gettin’ with WordPress as it seemed to be what al the mature kids were doin’.

It’s been a long cold summer.  Lazy afternoons spent sipping coffee or beers in the backyard, hanging with the neighborhood crew, searching for that next “something”.  Shit has gone stagnant for me; I used to be on the prowl on a regular basis looking to get my hands dirty and put in that work hopin’ to turn something out.

Regardless, this summer was the summer of death and well…Twitter.  While Twitter has proven to be a fun outlet for our virtual mind spray, it also turned out to be the quickest way to spread the word of death.  It came across like some sort of grim reaper sweeping through our social networking mediums in the form of a “fail”.  While making mass amounts of new aquaintences you couldn’t help but, in some small way share in the feelings of loss they felt at the hand of what was to be dubbed…The Summer of Death.

Seasons have since changed, and we get into hybernation phase, where in hopes of all the loss and contemplation everyone will re-evaluate what they are fully capable of.  

Assholes of the world unite, create, and make something big happen.

A word from the editor.

And with that, I leave you this.
