i feel you...

but yeah there's much more to life then all that!
what you're talking about is city life, going out with friends and consuming stuff...
how about creating stuff?
educate yr self so you can creat!
play an instrument
work your body
grow mushrooms and other cool plants
paint/digitally manipulate images
write a song/poem/book

consuming is boring real satisfaction lays in creation
nothing beats a home cooked meal (except a sheffs meal but even that often is less satisfactory)

don't shoot yr self just yet there are other stuff out there that you've failed to realize yet...




no, I already did all that stuff.  I'm still bored as hell. 

but keep on thinking you're enlightened there.  thats a great attitude.  see where that gets you.




hummm... maybe you SHOULD kill your self then  :confused:

I'm getting so close to the point where nothingness seems more desirable than the sludge that is everyday existence, it isn't even funny.

Funny, I was just thinking about this exact same topic earlier today.  I'm pretty impressed...you listed all of it.  The main thing I was thinking about with American culture was the radio and the internet.  All the modern music on the radio just seems so...souless...and...manufactured.  It's just a quick musical fix instead of the elaborate journey's I go on when I listen to older musicians like Floyd and Yes.  I don't watch much TV and I've given up on seeing movie's in theatres.  99.9 percent of them suck.  I'd rather watch a movie at home then go out and see one, because at least then I can get high and even if the movie sucks, hey, at least I'll still be high. 

I have no social life either.  Part of the reason is because I'm being reclusive and solitary.  The other half is that there is a trend of meeting people who are either weirded out by me, or I simply have nothing in common with them and its hard to communicate at the same level.  I don't see the point in going to clubs anymore, although I did when I was younger.  Everytime I do go to a club, it's like everyone there is the same.  It's rare that I find someone that I actually click with. 

Fortunately, I'm one of those people who like hanging out in nature.  HOWEVER, I never do it, because I live in the city and Texas-style nature is really brutal during the summer.  I don't think it's fun to get heat stroke just because I want a walk.  (I'm very sensitive to the heat) If I lived somewhere cooler and more serene I'd be out playing in the mud every single freaking day. 

Really, the only thing that makes me truly satisfied nowadays is writing my book.  So I've contented myself with that.  And the knowledge that one day I will be outta Texas.  I'd trade three feet of snow for 100 degree temperatures anyday.  At least you can PLAY in snow! 

Hope you find something to make life more satisfying, Doc!  :heart:

yeah.... I actually have quite a few aquaintances but I secretly hate all of them... and I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual... You know, you go out to clubs and there are always these tightly knit cliques... but the truth is that most of those people are only hanging out with eachother for fear of being alone and having to face their own thoughts (OOOOooohhh... wouldn't that be scary?)

the truth is that everyone is miserable and people who claim they aren't are just faking so they can judge you and make you feel even worse. bastards.

give it a few years and you'll be singing a different tune

life gets worn out like an old porno.

its exciting at first but then the novelty wears off and you can't get it up to the same old whore getting fucked by some sleezy hollywood asshole anymore.

damn, I'm so dark and edgy

Haha, man..I understand what you said 100%, and it scares me cause this is some negative shit.

And you really don't sound too bummed out. If someone is really upset, it's not funny. But this thread is gold, lol.

to be expected when you consume consume consume... it doesn't really matter what it is anymore really. The fun is in the things that can't be priced.
Being a consumer is tedious and boring. Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat jerkoff Sleep, Work Eat Jerkoff Jerkoff again Sleep, Work Jerkoff, until ya just say fuckit and shoot yourself but only after one more...

haha, i just reread this and i'm officialy crazy... i'm just gonna leave it alone for a comical... post

Poor Doc, so jaded. How long has it been since you walked out into the wilderness alone and spent the night on 7 grams of shrooms?

I promise you will not find nature boring. :grin: :heart:
