Think Different?

I regret to inform you, the readers, that I am writing this blog on an apple. Yes, it seems not only were there no computers around, but no papers either so, I am writing this on an apple. Luckily it is a green apple so the writing is easy to see. Now it is only a matter of time before I come across a computer and can properly type this up so as to convey it to you.

I regret to inform you, the readers, that I am writing this blog on an apple computer. Yes, it seems not only were there no pc's around, but no bananas either because I would sooner transfer this message from an apple to a banana than from one apple to another. At least the banana peel wont crash if I try to read it.

Yes it seems that my co-op placement operates entirely on Macs, and I must hand it to them, they are good at making me look like I have never used a computer before. But I realized something about Macs too. Remember when Hitler tried to kill all of the Jews and, in turn, everyone else until nobody but the Germans was left? Yea, sound familiar doesn't it.

Yes it seems our friendly neighborhood apple store is nothing more than a concentration camp for competing electronics brands. Apple computers and hardware all together is 1st party, pure bread, apple electronics. No conflict and no fuss. Everything fits together so seamlessly and with out hesitation because they all have the same maker. No room for Jew-, sorry, MICROSOFT brand keyboards, oh no. that just won’t do.

now, I'm not saying by ANY means that Steve jobs is a racist or some kind of reincarnation of Hitler...though...I should look that up. All I'm saying is that in a world as diverse as ours there should me MANY brands of computer, mp3 player, and cell phone. I mean, look how far and high apples reputation has climbed in such little time. It used to take DECADES for companies to earn the trust of the people and NOW we are willing to get attached to anything that lets us touch their screen. I for one won’t stand for it.

Yes it seems Alex has come to another crossroads in his life. He must, AGAIN, purchase an mp3 player. This time, though, he's going for the big leagues. 120 Gigabyte hard-drive at LEAST. Of course Ipod is the first thing that comes to mind, and also LEAVES my mind. I refuse to suckle at the dried out tit of Steve jobs. Up until now it was between the ipod and the zune ONLY because they were the only two that could even compare to one another, but I’ve decided against the ipod for a riskier approach. Say what you will but I want to stand out from the crowd. I can think. I NOTICE that there is an IPOD section and an MP3 section at the store. WHY!?! THIS IS SEGREGATION ALL OVER AGAIN! No, I think ill chance it with the zune. Everywhere I turn there are people forgiving and compromising for apple electronics. Who could stay mad at such a nice, clean, white mp3 player or computer? But I want everyone to know that in the future, if apples slogan becomes "WHITE POWER" I called it!

FUCK titles

I had an ENTIRE fuckin blog ready about how i was at work and i opened a box full of mirrors and tripped out cause i thought i was IN the box or something, and it was pretty good too. But looking over it, its just not me. I couldnt help but think to myself, "FUCK alex, YOUVE LOST IT!"
Gone are the days of yogurt cups and centapides, now i am tied down with friends, girlfriends, and "emoooootions". What the hell happened? i used to be a loser too! HONEST! I used to be able to talk about nothing and keep people happy all day. BUT NO! Im not funny anymore, now i have REAL things to talk about. NOW i am "GRACED" with the oppurtunity to talk about how one of my BEST friends is never going to talk to me again. and WHY?!? BECAUSE I decided to, INSTEAD of STAYING IN THE SAFE CONFINES of my room, up and LEAVE at 6 in the morning TO BE SPONTANEOUS and BUS IT UP TO A FUCKING TOWN IVE NEVER EVEN BEEN TO! WELL FUCK! NEVER AGAIN. i was WAY funnier before i grew faith in the world and i liked it. My anger and bitterness kept me warm. But NOW i have "FRIEDNS". NOW i can see the BEAUTIFUL side of the world. I mean HERES a person who i could COUNT on calling me everynight just to talk with and vent to. BEST friend I ever had, and what do I DO? i FUCK IT UP LIKE ITS A KID WHO LEARNED THE ALPHABET BACKWARDS!
Dont get me wrong, this isnt without its life lesson, but in the end, NO lesson is worth what i lost. I would GLADLY cut off my pinky finger just to prove a POINT to this person. But decapitation isnt always enough. No, i could hurl myself into a combine harvester and STILL not make things better. So what do i do? i LIVE with it. i LIVE with a scar that will never heal. Like IM prometheus and THEYRE THOUGHT is the eagle that comes down and feasts on my liver EVERY DAY. SO there. Maybe a piece of funny alex died or maybe the world just got a little darker itself. Its like the comedian said, "Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the Comedian is the only thing that makes sense." and i agree. Fuck taking things seriously and screw getting attached. Now all i need to do is figure out what to do with these two CN Tower tickets...
