5 reasons why life today is better

In Myself, The Grinder on November 6, 2010 at 6:24 pm

 

 

Going through seemingly unfair but mandatory woes can incline someone to evaluate their life, environment and situations. In this miserable state , I have decided to do an inevitably incomplete list…..

Why is life better today?

1. WAR

The threat of nuclear attack actually subjects the world to an increased state of security. If one country or power decides to wage war on the world they would risk ending humanity as well as being flattened. With the developments in nano and bio technology, the superpowers (slowly shifting) are approaching invincibility when it comes to army units (soon to be self-repairing ultra-armoured Robots) thus making the only resolutions to a threat either diplomatic peace or all-over annihilation. Fractional troop loss and subsequent surrender may soon be a thing of the past. If a world war was waged today, the richest humans on earth would, if they could, all get in space-bound vessels and disappear, leaving all us plebs to burn on a flaming earth; hell.

2. BOOTY

In “the good old days”, long dresses were the norm, to see a peng gyal rolling down to town in jeggings and a belly top would result in a crowd and a few heart attacks. Ass is everywhere, as are boobies. Wheras in the bad old days you would of had to have payed alot (money or freedom) to see a posterior , now you can go to the streets and check some out for free.

3. INTERNET

 

Freedom can be good and bad, here online (unless you live in China), theft is easy, communication is simplified and opinions aren’t repressed (all good and bad). The Net, fortunately, presents more positives than negatives, this is ease, theres nothing like being able to swiflty determine whether or not your favourite ex is single and/or pregnant……

Go and steal that new movie now.

4. MEDICINE

                                                                                    

Who wants to be hopelessly ill? Regardless of certain problems regarding distribution and pricing we (in the evil west) are altogether healthier, living longer and safer lives than ever before. Many ailments that before would have slowly killed are now merely speed bumps on the winding road of life. Well, for some…

5. MUSIC

Imagine searching through all the possible music outlets and being unable to find any dubstep, heavy metal or soka. Imagine no, rap, indie or electronica. Today you can listen to whatever you like (no, not T.I), variety is the spice of life and the cupboard is brimming with bottles. Even if you’re someone who wants to ignore modern music and roll to some 50’s swing or a classical sonata, its easily done and you can do it when, where and how you want…….

Although there are many cons to modern life, the truth is, disregarding financial standards, the disgusting and archaic economical system of the world and saturation of everything, we (in “first” world countries) have never had it so good.

  Good luck

Why did I sell my videogames?

This my first article and I have started this website thing on an Android smartphone, so be nice please………

I love playing games, the quirkier and more unusual the better. While many would put down Modern Warfare, the Sims or WoW as their favourite game, I simply can’t say I have one, having played and clocked so many with the aid of educated taste and videogame reviews. I somehow know when a title is a good game, a bad game or just a clone game so I’ve never spent money on something not worthy of it. I have many favourites but only a few of them are popular. All this is just dandy, except I don’t play games……..

People say to me when I tell them how I sold all the hard and soft wares that were in the game room:”You musta been soo broke, damn bruv…you needed money for smoke or somethin’ man”, Naaa not me… yeah I was broke, I had just resigned from a job in Satans shoe cupboard, but I never need a draw. Neither was it so I could buy another gadget (although I am writing these posts on a Motorola Milestone). I had a SNES, an N64, a Dreamcast (the legend), a GameCube, a Crystal Xbox 1, a Neo Geo and a Wii, all with many games, peripherals and accesories. All gone now………

I had to do it. My priorities were plentiful and disorganised, study was play and me-time was wii-time. I don’t like reminding myself of the final payout sum, I like to think i’d have given them away for free if there were poor kids in front of me, but for what was there, many classics (real ones) and mild rares (japanese carts, silent hill psx, street fighter 2 turbo snes cart, beyond good and evil, rocket robot on wheels, no mercy and zeldas ngc master quest disc) the meagre price was like a bang to my bass drum of a heart, kicking me into a different groove (sorry).

“I had to free myself from my unhealthy gaming habit, so I got rid of absolutely everything”

Recently videogaming has grown to be a very fragmented and diluted scene with the “casual invasion” or should i say “casual invitation” taking place in the early noughties and companies playing it safe, forced to either make a big meal of a product or a simple snack for quick consumption by the randomly intrigued casual consumer; a battered middleground with rare appearances from polished, ambitious, ingenious, ground-breaking new games that take risks and new IPs that arent so focused on “room for improvement” that they can feel “just right” on the first time for a digital piece of art in its own right. My life was spent on living virtual lives, occasionally more aesthetically pleasing than the real world, but endlessly more restrictive and rigid than controlling yourself on Earth…………………

After all, I did the right thing, I made a compromise for the greater need (me). My boy says (the shallowest, most unprophetic anti-pragmatic baboon I know) “you want a lot, you gotta give a lot to get it” or something longer but to the same implication, although he has followed that principle disappointingly selectively, he’s right you know………….
