Curbside Rants - by Zach Medearis of Outer Minds
Yeah I get it, you have a camera. You like to capture the souls of all those empty sacks of flesh doing inane things at inane places.
With your momentary image prison you kidnapped the spirit of an instant, all the while forgetting to exist in the meaningless shudder-click of the universe’s being.
I get it. You were documenting your boring and unimportant life barfs. I totally get it. You took these unflattering and invasive-poor quality stills to hang up in the creative diarrhea shelf of your computer’s hard-drive. Force those pictures into the eye-holes of all of your friends and show them how totally creative of a snow-flake you really are.
Totally get it.
This whole “living in the flesh thing with all its beauty and never-ending sights thing”, sucks dick. The whole “eyeball to brain” way of living is such a fucking drag.
Man… fuck those eyeball things. Being bogged down with the minutia of looking at something then processing it thoughtfully and having a unique and beautiful way of interpreting the image is such bullshit.
I get it, you got a camera.
