The Darkest Spot

Colours: when the eye is the darkest spot, wrapped in darkness on a sunny day.
Last year it’s been Lizard Squad, this year it’s Phantom Squad – this kind of scum that’s penetrating gamer’s networks won’t die out. And after the one or another arrest new leagues of script kiddies, eager to pass their tests of courage, emerging from the dust. Who knows, maybe they are just collecting street credibility for further criminal activities in the future. Your parents are certainly proud of you, kids!

We're Trapped

At the end of the day, we’re trapped. You may be one of the good ones or a social disease instead: in the middle of life we are surrounded by death. And it can happen anytime. It might happen now. And what happens after that is depending on your belief system.
We have found many ways to ignore this simple truth. We are seeing meaning in the midst of the chaos called life, our concept of love isn’t just based on hormones and reproduction. And even if these concepts are too difficult for us, we still have entertainment.
Entertainment is our weakest weapon against the cruelty of life. But it’s the most successful we have. The promise of entertainment is the quietness of mind. Is to make us sleepy. Because we want it.
The sleep of reason is bearing monsters, they say. But if entertainment is making us sleepy in order to prevent us from fearing the cruelty of our existence, then I’d say entertainment is a friendly monster. And (apart from comedies) porn is the friendliest of them all, reducing our brain activity to zero.
Yes, we could see it this way.
But maybe it’s not that evil. At least I was able to meditate on this with the support of a bit of porn. The question itself remains, though: how can we go on with our life when everything around us is falling apart? It’s the question of theodicy for many years, and of course this silly blog can’t give you an answer. Not really.

Defend Our Porn!

Once again, a country starts banning all traffic from Tumblr (among others), and this time it’s Indonesia. As always, religious reasons are pleaded. But porn is not Satan, and porn wasn’t made for atheists only: the real reason why countries block pornographic sites (including other sources of pornographic art, like film, literature, photography and others) is the subversive nature of porn. Societies that are restricted to the maximum amount possible, including the total suppression of women, have absolutely no valid reason to ban porn for ‘philantropic’ or ‘religious’ reasons. It’s all about mind control and suppression. Keeping people dumb not only from pictures with naked people but from science and literature, too. At least some requests from Indonesia are dropping by even at this very website: I hope it’s somebody who tries to keep an independent mind. Continue reading
