Are you serious?

Seriously. Are you serious?

Why?

The world is a fucked up, nonsensical, phantasmagorical maelstrom of crazy shit.

That comes to an end.

Kaput!

Everyone and everything.

Undone.

YOU—You can’t do anything to stop the psychotic blender-on-high of sentiments and desires and pointless, petty spite all grinding, mincing and pulverizing ALL OF US—together in one massive gooey barrel of yuck. Can you? No!

So, why be serious? Seriously.

  1. Damn near Shakespearean, Mole. But here’s the catch: if everyone took this to heart and suddenly stopped taking stupid shit so goddamn seriously, what in the hell would you and I have to laugh at? There is no bigger form of parody than self-importance.

  2. What, you mean we aren’t going to assemble a properly diverse herd, all holding hands, teaching the world to sing as one? Wow. All I can say to that is “dammit”. Cause it was such a pretty picture…

  3. I’m very oversensitive and serious though I love to make fun of everything. It’s probably best to laugh more at ourselves and our lives on the micro scale of our own little sphere. But the world is so appallingly fucked up, so filled with suffering, hate, and unimaginable crimes, that it almost feels like a sin not to be serious about it.

    1. “It’s probably best to laugh more at ourselves and our lives on the micro scale of our own little sphere. ” There ya go. Because this – “that it almost feels like a sin not to be serious about it.” isn’t going to change anything except bum you out. No reason to feel guilty when it’s all out of your control.

      1. Yeah you’re right. It’s so hard for me not to seek it out bc I feel like if other people are going through it, I can’t shut my eyes. Catholic guilt. It’s in my DNA. Gotta stay off of Google for a while I guess.

  4. Ha! Touche.
    I often find myself taking things too seriously. It grinds my gears when I am told to just drop it. Why? Because against all odds, against my true self, I want to be an optimist. I want to believe that Earth can be our Idyll.
