Hello

"Fellow Americans, It is with the utmost pride and sincerity that I present this blog as a living testament and recollection of history in the making during our generation.

Allow me to re-introduce myself, My name is ... " - SC



Hello,

Technically, hello again. I started a blog before, 2 years ago actually, right here, didn't go anywhere with it obviously.

I'll be honest, my efforts were inspired by my friend chris. He started a blog recently and I like it. My friend Vinson also has one that is good.

Anyway, here I am. I'll tell you this too, I love life. Specifically, I love living it. Do you know why? (Of course you don't.. don't you hate this types of literary style..). The patterns. I love noticing patterns about myself based on 22 and three-fourths years of empirical evidence. Here is what I mean...

I am a neo-status quo hater. I hate on things that are new and are liked by the majority of the population with their inception. Evidence:

early 90's - I really hated on broccoli. Not to say that broccoli was new or anything at that point but it was new to me. My mom loved it and I hated it. She tried to feed it to me but no, I wouldn't have it. It was judged as healthy by all, so I didn't want any part of it. Now? I love it, would eat it raw or steamed and everything in between.

Middle school - Jnco's. How can you not hate on them, they looked wack and the people that wore them were wack (see Jablon). But, in the back of my mind, I thought they were kind of cool, and so I bought a pair. The hate was over. I looked so fly...

North Faces - this natural hatred was brought upon the conflagration of jews that wore them at Horace Mann. I've got nothing against jews, but a lot of things against Japs. But still, I kind of liked them (North Faces, not japs), and so, in college, I bought myself a North Face. Sell out? Maybe..

College - I would not pay any mind to the American Office when it came out. I was certain it would suck because the British Office was pure gold. Of course, time passed, my hatred subsided, and I watched Season 1, 2 and half of 3 in under two weeks to get caught up a couple of months ago.

Kanye - Too popular to quickly. I didn't buy college dropout, hated his jesus love song and thought he was too cocky. Then, as time passed, I listened to Late Registration, and the love began...

Bluetooth head set - I would make fun of my friend Andrew Friedman non stop for talking on his bluetooth head piece. It was just too annoying to look at. Why not just raise your palm to your ear and deal with it. Not to mention the countless times I thought strangers were starting a conversation with me. Anyway, after 3 NYC traffic violations for talking on my cellular in my whip, I decided to give Bluetooth a chance with an impulse purchase at Costco. I guess you can say it paid off..

Wii - Semi-hate given to this Nintendo console. One word though: incredible. Wiincredible? Fantastwiic? Unbewiivable.

And so, naturally, I hated on bloggers. How could you not though? My conception of a blogger is a sticky-fingered loser who is self-centered and a tad arrogant. I guess when I realized I was self-centered and a tad arrogant, I knew it was time to start one.

So, welcome and enjoy.

You clearly need to add the first season of LOST now to this list of reformed hating
