Strangers Among Us  
A generation has grown up without knowledge of true solace. Electronic boxes buzz in their ears with the voices of their friends, always available. Always. Their dramas are immediate and acute, their romances as fleeting and delicate as damselflies. Their stories are plotwise dance music; scene-to-scene, they bounce through wafer-thin dialogs...little conversations are they. What blindly heaving dinosaurs we must seem to them. We're not blind, but their sight has passed into the ultraviolet, where only insects with multi-faceted eyes can tell the flowers apart.
Current Mood: chipperchipper
Current Music: Joanna Newsom / Only Skin - sonique

I hadn't seen 2L shopping sites, but I guess it was inevitable. I made a passable Harley there in my day, which could have made some coin. I'm not above exploiting society for my own gains. I'm just not fast enough to keep up with it. In most senses, no one is. Bill Gates got ahead in money, but he's not a beloved net celebrity or the king of online art. Perhaps I'm the future most critically acclaimed net author. I doubt it, but I'd consider that better than being a hated OS billionaire. Wait, what am I saying?
