Yeah. Some days this is me. Social media is where time goes to die. It’s an illusion of interest and activity. In reality, it’s cat pics and Over the Hedge memes.
The Hedge memes are fine, but everything else…
Hammy! Trump! In the octagon!
Trump doesn’t stand a chance.
As an introvert, Twitter/Facebook/this blog have increased my social engagement with the world. This is a good thing. On the other hand, it’s not the same as one on one personal interaction. The difference is give and take. Listening and talking with the benefit of expression and body language, both of which temper dialogue. There’s no shrugs, no eye rolls, no sneers or giggles online. And emojis don’t count. So, enjoy both, but be sure and occasionally seek out someone to talk to. Not at. To.
Behold FFN News #2. Produced by me and the fine folks at Ralph Smyth Entertainment. My role is mainly to stay out their way. Which I do quite well.
I think this episode is a big improvement over #1. The kittens were so much more cooperative this time. We gave in to their demands for private liter boxes and hemp yarn.
If you like it, please share. Far and wide.
But mostly wide.
Yes, the dead horse I will not stop beating is making its network premiere on ABC tonight and I’ll be telling you way more than you need to know about how this piece of tasty sausage was made.
Lucky for you, I had little to do with it other than stay the hell out of DreamWorks way.
My purpose this evening is to try to pull a few more viewers so we can prove to Jeffrey Katzenberg that Hedge deserves some more attention. Like a TV series, or a film strip, or maybe a few commemorative sporks.
It’s not likely to happen, but you never know.
