Archive for the ‘Hate Mondays’ Category

Been a long time since I’ve written one of these, but today would be as good as any. Today marks the day when my (now ex) girlfriend moved out of our place after a month and a half of awkwardly living together. Things did not go so well or so smoothly, but I don’t regret what has happened. I gained my full independence that day and haven’t looked back.

A lot has changed in those 365 days. I’m not going to lie and say it’s been all totally awesome, as with everything there are ups and downs. What matters is how you handle the ups and downs and ride out any potential bullshit, or that’s at least how I feel business should get done. Really there wasn’t much I could do but go forward.

To look at some positives, I’ve been way more social with my life. Hell even done some things I never imagined I would ever do or be doing. I got to meet my first floor neighbours and they’re hella cool peoples who I party with on the occasion. I’ve made great new friends and dated some awesome people. Hell, I did some pretty cool things with my artistic aspirations and taken things in other directions.

The time living alone has also given me some perspective on who I am as a person and the kind of things I want to do and get done moving forward or every day.

I guess I can’t be a hater on today. I am still a bit sad, but that’s the nature of the incident. There’s no point holding a grudge or ill feelings it’s done and done. I was unable to change things when it happened nor can I change what happened now.

So as much as this is a Hate Monday, for today I put the hate away and think back on the good that’s happened to me instead.

There’s a bit of a conflict on this Hate Monday. I mean I have to say I hate about 99.5% of all tumblr. sites I come across and on a whole I find the idea of tumblr. repulsive and irritating. FYI for those who don’t know what tumblr. is:

Tumblr, sometimes styled as tumblr., is a microblogging platform that allows users to post text, images, videos, links, quotes and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can follow other users, or choose to make their tumblelog private. The service emphasizes ease of use.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, the internet has been experiencing a sever rash of hacking incidents. That’s not to say that the internet isn’t being hacked or breached in some capacity everyday somewhere for some reason, but this is beginning to be come excessive. And if anyone hates something in excess it’s the government.

Now this is could be something where there actually isn’t more hacks being done, but a case where they’re being reported with more frequency due to the high-profile targets being hit. Yet either way, it’s still doesn’t help when the hacking groups step up their game and actively announce their intentions, have a live twitter feed, post press releases about their activities as well as video updates and shit. You know who else sort of does that shit? Terrorist groups.

Congrats Anon, LulzSec, Anti-Sec, ect. Your efforts only seek to fuck over the better (and good) hackers, petty hackers and will force many governments hands on the following:

  • Heavier Internet security Laws
  • A form of Digital Terrorism legislation with guidelines for prosecution
  • Erosion of Net Neutrality
  • Increased internet monitoring
  • Decreased freedoms an liberties on the internet (A China like internet in the West)
  • Mass suspicion

Congrats dip-shits. You are single-handedly ruining the internet of tomorrow with shitty pranks today. You’re dumb ass activities act as a justification of bills like C-51 in Canada which is this massive Crime bill and legislation that had little provisions in it which outline things like Internet Service providers obligation to store all the e-mails people send out for the sole purpose of the government using them for investigations and accessing them without a warrant. Awesome. Welcome back 1984.

Realistically, this shit needs to stop. It’s not as if you’re fighting for any great cause. And given that this is the internet, anyone and everyone typically just makes claims they are someone else anonymously so it’s a fair call to say that when the next big hack has some serious implications and does a lot of damage, all done in your hacking groups name, have fun like Anon did trying to disprove it was your people who dun fucked up.

Hacking can be a good form of getting some internet awareness out there on the net to important issues or things which are factually wrong, but the levels it’s being taken to for the past few months is more of an indication that this is all being done without considerations for the ramifications or consideration for the consequences or the future of things to come. Stop being narrow sighted. Stop ruining the internet for everyone.

So I figured if I was going to be hating on things on a regular Monday basis, I might as well make some effort to justify my actions and not just be a boring old hater. A lot of people hate because they find it fun and their bored. Some hate to make someone feel miserable and awful on the inside. Some hate because that’s all they know. I’m going to hate because I want to see some change in people.

There’s a lot of apathy that happens in society and it’s something I’ve talked about in the past here and to people I know. Everyone carries a ‘I don’t really care’ attitude and that’s bullshit. It’s ignorant to live a life where you have to wait until something happens to you before you give a shit (see the UBB internet problems, last Federal Election in Canada). I want to be a tool for change and I’m not going to wait around and take the passive path to change. I want to shove my opinion in your face and prove how much of a dumb ass you are, or how stupid that idea is or why you’re wrong and doing it wrong.

I’m far from the first to be doing this. If you asked me who inspires me to take on this silly crusade of social change I would have to point to a gent who’s a world-class hater; The Great Maddox.

Maddox is the king of hatin’ and I don’t want to challenge that crown or step on his toes. What I take from him is the don’ give a shit attitude and say what I feel and think without being inhibited by how people are going to react. No one should feel they have to be self censured about speaking their minds. And I welcome people to disagree with me about what I’m saying. If you have a problem or if you feel I am wrong, leave a comment and say so. Nothing changes without discussion. Perhaps there’s something I didn’t consider or something you could have been misinformed on.

Let me cast the first stone and say I hate bloggers who are too god damn lazy to get writing and listen to the little hater with in them. Don’t be stupid, stupid and remember that you can only make hater-aid when you start adding hate. Else you have shitty water and who wants shitty water?

Hate on peeps, it’s Monday.
