I watched IDIOCRACY when it first came out and thought it was ok. While I thought parts were funny, it felt over the top. Lately, I've come to change my opinion.
I'm not the kind of person that starts hating on something once it becomes popular. Everybody hates Myspace now because everyone is on it. I love Myspace because everyone is on. It's help create a second income for me by letting more people know how to get their hands on my sketchbook, art, etc. But there is a new thing happening that I can't figure out and it makes me believe that IDIOCRACY is here in a big way.
TWITTER. Are you fucking kidding me. People hang around on a site updating people on what they're doing. Well, I guess that's the intent of the site, but it seems that it's becoming somewhat of a forum/chat room thing. We've become so retarded that we've forgotten that we created things for that...FORUMS and CHAT ROOMS. Are you fucking kidding me.
I recently read about battle on twitter by fully grown men. I'm paraphrasing here, but it read something like this:
manchild01: You did stupid stuff, you are a stupid head!
iWouldKillmyselfifIcouldfindawebsitethatdiditforme69: you are stupider head...burn!
manchild01: Your head are totally more stupider than mine so burn that burnded face head.
iwouldkillmyselfificouldfindawebsitethatdiditforme69: Your head is the stupiderest head of all the stupidheads in the stupid world.
manchild01: You are being so childish, I'm done with this
manchild01: oh yeah...you're a stupid head...bye.
Seriously, I wish that was far off but it's not. I will state here, I will never be on Twitter. I can't bring myself to swallow that pill. No offense to those who choose to do it, I just don't quite understand it.
By the way, this is another piece done on my Cintiq. Still loving the shit out of it.
