I find it to be completely and totally worthless that I have to go to sleep.  What a waste of time.  The worse part about it is that you are forced to go to sleep because if you don’t you will die.  Wouldn’t it be great if sleeping was an option?  You could decide what to do with those 4-10 hours that you waste sweating in bed.  How much could we accomplish if we didn’t have to sleep?

I was driving to work today enjoying my QT doughnut and coffee when all of a sudden the ass-clown driving the car in front of me slammed on their breaks.  Since I have the reflexes of a Jedi I didn’t spill or drop anything, but I did become overwhelmed by a Hulk-like rage.  I decided to do the mature thing, so I passed them screaming and cursing while flicking them the bird only to find out that it was one of the most dangerous people to have behind a wheel: the elderly.

I hate old people that drive especially the really old drivers.  I hate their giant sunglasses, huge cars, and general disregard for safety and the speed limit.  I generally don’t have a lot of road rage, but you get me behind a 70 year old doing 25 in a 45, and I will lose my f-ing mind.  It is at those moments in time that I begin to have fantasies about mounting machine guns to the hood of my car, and I promise that I don’t really want to shoot at other cars with said machine guns (yes I do).  All of these dark fantasies could be stopped by having old people removed from the roads.

Why is it that I got my license 14 years ago, and not once have I ever had to retest?  What other operated vehicle on Earth is not backed by a program that requires constant testing and retesting?  I can’t buy alcohol on Sunday in my state, but if I fought in the Civil War I can still drive my car without anyone batting an eye.  Get drunk on Sunday: Hell No!  Drive as crazy as I want: Hell Yes!

Now I don’t hate old people in general.  I love hanging out with my Grandma, and hearing her tell stories of busting caps in hater’s asses.  I just don’t like her driving.  If I had to make a choice between getting punched in the dick or riding in the car with Grandma then I would need some ice.

If by chance you are an old person who has stumbled your way onto the internet after randomly pressing buttons on “that damn machine”, and you have found your way to my site I welcome you.  I also will tell you to toss your keys in the toilet, and spend the last glory days of your life off the road.  Cars move to fast these days, so leave the driving to the kids.  You and your wrinkled old friends can save public transportation by just taking the subway, train, or bus.  Who else has nothing to do all day but wait on these things besides you and your friends?  Do us all the favor and stay off the roads.

I was browsing through the news today when I came across this gem.  I must admit that I am not quite sure how I feel about this.  On one hand I am not shocked that the jury came out so hard against her since stealing is stealing.  However, I wonder how many members of the jury or people they know download music illegally?  I would bet that it is much higher then one would think.

What I do know for sure is that the Recording Industry Association of America’s (RIAA) pursuit of these lawsuits and settlements are beyond stupid, and it will only lead to the further demise of their ability to sell music.  The cat is out of the bag for their industry, and all of the lawsuits in the world will not get it back in the bag.

It amuses me to walk into a Walmart or Target and find CDs selling for the same amount of money as they did 10 years ago.  Is it due to the cost of all of the theft, or is it simply greed?  I find it hard to believe that in a world where Chinese industrial might has driven down the cost of making everything that the price of a CD has stayed so flat.  That being said I can only assume that the price has stayed the same due to a dying profit stream being artificially frozen to maintain profits in a declining market.

Everyone I know steals music.  The scary thing for the RIAA is that NO ONE THINKS IT IS WRONG.  It has become what you do when you want to get that new album or hear that new song.  ITunes is a great business model, but I think that the price points are still too high.  The future is not CD’s or lawsuits.  The future is an organic sales model and 360 degree contracts that generate profit from more sources then just the physical version of the music.  It creates a deeper commitment between the artist and the company, and when done correctly can make music exciting again.

Everything dies and fades away.  Companies and products burn bright and fade like shooting stars.  The truly great ones realize ways to capture the fire and to ensure that it continues to burn.  I am reminded of companies like Kodak who saw the market changing and decided to embrace the change.  I am also reminded of companies like Sony who innovated with the Walkman only to realize too late that the world wanted digital and not physical.  If you do not believe me when I say that the current way of selling music is dead, then I ask you to try and remember the last time you couldn’t wait to buy a new album.

This is my first post on this blog. I intend to try and write as often as I can on it. I intend for it to be a place where I can share my thoughts free of the chains our society places on our thoughts. We have been taught to never ask question’s and to not express our true feelings. I plan on saying what I am thinking, and hearing back from others. I will never censure anything that anyone leaves here as long as it is constructive. I look forward to rattling the cage with all of you.Rebel Against The Wall’s Other’s Have Placed Before You
