Don't Laugh, God Complex

I started Don't Laugh, People years ago, before I ever moved to a blogging platform. It was on forums, but I did not call it "Don't Laugh, People" at the time; it was know simply as "Why You're Bitches." The idea then was to chastise the way of thinking that was crippling society and humanity, sports and news, schools and careers. The themes have followed. In a sense, looking at my blog posts... it's just me bitching about why others are bitches.

I thought upon a time that was a fair way to grab attention. Do unto others so they can see how cheap and petty their way of life/everything really is. I suppose it works in many circumstances, but much the same as a great hero has to learn not to kill to avoid becoming the villain, I too have realized I need a different approach. I could not figure out how, nor could I devote the time and capacity to research it.

I used to think "the truth" was enough. But "being neutral" is difficult when you're "spewing truth." One man's "truth" is another man's "bullshit" and that will always be *fact (*not truth). "Being neutral" has become "being subjective" in the minds of today's world--the ones who care. The apathetic just brush it all off. But I can not become apathetic. Not when there are viewpoints like the ones expressed on Don't Laugh, People by Allan Graye. Not when there are social injustices against all peoples every single moment of our existence. Even the privileged are treated like pariah by those who are *fortunate (*apathetic) enough to live life without concern.

I have not truly written for Don't Laugh, People for a while. I have drafts I start both on the platform and in Word documents. I save and close them, promising myself to finish them tomorrow. But tomorrow becomes 27 days ago in the blink of an eye. It is not an issue with will, desire, wanting, needing, or responsibility--I want to write. Even when I rant away on Twitter and get it all out of my system, I still want to bring it here for permanence. But I want Don't Laugh, People to transcend my shitty subjective neutrality of "the truth" and represent something more concrete, more fluid, more undeniable. It's my God Complex; grandiose delusions--I want Don't Laugh, People to be God. Not God the infinitely religious contemporary. Not God the warmonger. Just God, one-with-all *creation (*creativity).

I want to write. I want to entertain. I want to inspire. Educate. Motivate. Engage. Inform. Change. My writing is not unique. I am not the best writer on Don't Laugh, People, in my family, among my friends, on Blogger, on Tumblr, on Twitter, on WordPress. The only way I see myself being unique is that I have a direction I don't think others have. I do not have an endgame. I have a means to an end leading to a new beginning. I don't have an outline, I have a one-day-at-a-time (or 27 yesterdays) journey. My desire to change society is not to mold it into a vision of my own, but rather of our collective ideas.

I believe we can all coexist. Not the shitty religious symbolic bumper sticker type of coexist. The type of coexisting that only happens when humanity realizes our differences are our similarities. Our weaknesses are our strengths. As cliche as it all sounds, it's fact. Not truth. Truth is that a weakness can never be a strength. Fact is that a weakness can be manipulated into a strength.

So I ask that you forgive my inactivity. Forgive my upcoming inactivity. I will not promise activity again. But I will promise that there are goals here on Don't Laugh, People and those goals are to share more and more. More creativity. More *God (*no religion).

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
