the Grumpy Young Man Line... yeah Darling People it's been some time but here i am, Still... for-better-or-worse not much difference than when last our paths crossed; no need to break what ain't fixed... >mm-hmm< ...presently conducting business & Living The Dream discreetly... Sotto Voce... opting for Active Anonymity over Panoramic Pretention... all the while creating as much Artistic Output as time allows, Minimal Pageantry... steering clear of the Distracting Dazzle... avoiding Adolescent Artifice... don't get me wrong; still drinking 'til dawn & chatting up more Chewables than i did at Fifteen, just probably not with you or anyone who can either confirm or deny my activity... matter of fact, my reocurrence here is moreso for reasons of Imposed Necessity --that, & persistent badgering beset upon me from all sides at every turn-- than any genuine personal interest to continue publicly trumpeting my own validity... so i involuntarily offer here only as much Proof Of Life as necessary, and leave it to you to change the channel... back by unpopular demand, Thank You Very Much... but boy-oh-boy how attention spans have become embarrassingly limited, Oui? ...the world's collective vision ever narrowing, even amongst such barrage... consequently people with very little to offer are afforded very much attention, best if it's selling something; Charmin Two-Ply anyone?... pass the popcorn... so much information, so little content... every day, all day, you know the drill... feeding a SuperPreterNatural urge, perhaps, to divulge too much, requiring the same in return... all continue to indulge eachothers running commentaries amongst themselves, regardless of whomever may be participating or even paying attention... "i, the people"... >bang a gong< ...those proverbial 15-minutes of fame are only worth about 15-seconds these days, adjusted for Deflation... this web-wide-world; we, the fattened & over-fed masses... here be provided a few more seconds for ye... >burp< ...this is by no means an insult to any heavy users among us; yes i do include myself, but only poiltely, you understand... these inner worlds we create for our own pleasure are often more entertaining than any outer worldly offerings, thus the attraction... Uber World, man; like, pump up the Cyan and our skies remain Blue... personally, i'd rather pull the plug, if not cut the electricity altogether... ...meanwhile, no care to impose myself on you but the Site is here if you care to visit from time to time... look at the pretty pictures but pay no mind to the man behind the curtain... and unless-or-until i suddenly lose all grasp of my own sensibilities, don't expect me to be your facebook friend... nor can i foresee caring to tweet-or-be-tweeted of every burp or bowel movement, or... ...next time we meet please do buy me a few Drinks, a Blue Cheeseburger maybe, and tell me All-About-Everything in the pleasure of eachothers company... physical interaction please; crowded rooms just me and you; random noise, blood, sweat, tears... >i'll be Nice< ...friends are already aware of course of my outright aversion to talking on telephones, so... for providing a favorable alternative, i cheer the invention of E-communication... for putting that technology in my pocket, i reluctantly own a Cellphone though i seldom carry it, rarely use its phone functions, all registered under names unknown... and for having become such a necessity, here I AM again on small screens near you...
