General / My book!!!!!
« on: January 09, 2018, 06:34:52 AM »
I know I've talked about my book here. I decided to go for it and launch it but I need a LOT of preorders and follows to get it to happen!

I would so appreciate you checking it out, reading the sample chapters and engaging with it, sharing and following, and if you can, pre-ordering it. Thank you so much!!

Isn't it kind f weird how the stuff about Chris came out right before this started happening on a huge scale? I feel like it shows how movements are kind of inevitable or something...like growing out of the wave of society and not spurred by one individual. I don't know

Blake, I think that's a really courageous and important reflection to have done and to share. You might like Marc Maron's latest wtf episode

I studied it in grad school! One of my major research projects was on post structuralism and the southern California punk scene.
It is definitely dense. Even after being immersed in the jargon I struggled reading a lot of it. I would recommend Disidentifications by Jose Esteban Munoz if you haven't seen it yet! There's a great collection of essays I'll have to find tomorrow too.

I know the basics of behavioral analysis but not enough to see the overlap so I'd definitely be interested in seeing your take!

Yeah! I heard an interview on npr with a woman who wrote a book called bored and brilliant or something like that. About how much we lose by never being bored. It was really interesting.

What a dream job for you, haha.
I love that you have a flip phone.
But yeah I can see why that would be frustrating.

What is your work? That's pretty intense too that they rely so heavily on it. It makes sense though. The client I'm working with now uses slack and it just feels kind of redundant when we could be doing everything through messenger.

And did anyone you didn't tell notice you quit?
It kind of scares me how huge it has gotten. Like when I'm in periods of being super sucked in it's almost like my brain lives in Facebook haha. It's awful.

This gave me the push to uninstall again and I think I'll stay off it all this weekend. Then I think I'll do what I keep intending to do and only use it at night for a set period of time to check in, promote what I need to, and then sign off.

I do leave messenger on though since it's how I actually communicate with a lot of people.

I think about it all the time. I couldn't quit outright because I use it for my business. I do often uninstall for several days to a week at a time and it usually feels really good, like there's just more SPACE.
I keep getting sucked back in though.
Whenever I take long breaks I realize that no one even notices I'm not active. It reinforces how shallow those interactions really are. It's not about real interaction at ALL. It's just about repeated dopamine hits from little bells and whistles disguised as socializing. It's really bizarre. I also think it has totally destroyed our ability to actually feel emotions about any world happening that doesn't directly involve us for more than 30 seconds.
Time for another Facebook break haha.
It is definitely a withdrawal process but it does feel so good after a couple days to realize you can just have thoughts and experiences and not share them.

I'm sending you all my best thoughts. I so hope everything goes well in a couple weeks. I'm sure it's really hard to stay positive around her. You're doing great. Do you have anyone you can talk to? <3

I canceled my Bandcamp order since it looked like it disappeared from the site. I liked the sample tracks that were up but don't really think I could listen to it now
