Vacant Statements

Do not grimace, dear friend, nor frown, nor sigh with disgust! What can one say when there is nothing to be said? Then again, even nothing is something, sometimes, isn’t it?

Therein lie the beauty and horror of words, at least those of which our preferred language is comprised. One may freely link them together, without purpose or intent, and should one see fit to read those words, however mystified we may be at his choice, well, who are we to judge?

Over the Lazy Dog

After all this time what more can be said, really? Well, I think we shall discover (though might be loathe to admit) that we’ve barely scratched the surface. Discourse such as this need never reach a sensible conclusion.

And why should it? What kind of world do we live in where people can’t write, and read, posts about topics of interest to them, or posts about no topic whatsoever? What sort of tyrant would insist that every written piece elucidate certain aspects of this or that, or offer commentary on such and such current event, or “make sense”?

That’s not the world we built together, my friends, and will continue building, because as long as you keep reading this insufferable prose I shall keep writing it.

Tyrants be damned.

We Don’t Need Words to Understand Each Other

Well hello there! Isn’t this a pleasant surprise? After our last encounter I naturally assumed you’d moved on to more fulfilling pursuits, but I can’t tell you how pleased I am that you decided to return. As always, my innate sense of decorum precludes me from speculating on your reasons for doing so, considering the frustratingly hollow nature of a post such as this one. To do so would be as futile as the very post itself, for as we both know, you are still reading it. Why concern ourselves with your motivations, knowing that neither of us will ever discover them?

I can say with some degree of pride that, unlike last time, the purpose (such as it is) of this particular piece of mind-numbing drivel is not merely to provide myself with superficial optical comfort, but rather to ascertain whether or not Facebook Notes will properly import my blog entries. As you know, I would never be so callous as to fill this space with mere placeholder text, though I’m sure we’d both agree that a few paragraphs of “lorem ipsum” would be equally enlightening, perhaps even more so.

However worthless the above text may be, and no matter how much agony you must have experienced while reading it, the fact is, we are communicating. In the end, what does it matter what is said? What difference does it make whether I type this word or that one, when it is clear that you will read whatever words appear before your eyes, as you are right now?

Obviously, we don’t need words to understand each other.

Saying Nothing But Telling You Everything

Once you get past the surface residue, penetrate the upper layers, through the mantle, and into the core of the issue, so to speak, I’m not really saying anything at all. “Why am I reading this?”, you might ask, but that is a question only you can answer. I am, however, able to explain why I, Mattdude, persist in regurgitating this meaningless gibberish which, for reasons unknown, you continue reading.

My purpose, dear readers, in generating this vapid prose is a simple one. Being somewhat (malignantly?) narcissistic, I enjoy frequently visiting my own web pages. Sometimes I’ll even Google myself, and then click the links back to my own site! Lol, I know, it’s fucked up but whatever. Anyway, I’ve grown tired of looking at that horrible “serious” photo below. I considered updating it with a “happy” photo, but to be honest I think it would be even more irritating.

To conclude, I’ve composed this text and included the attached picture as a means of driving down previous content, so that I may enjoy a more pleasant web experience. The content of this post, while meaningless, is from the heart (though off the top of my head) and not some canned bogus copy like lorem ipsum text.

If you’ve read this far you may be feeling slightly unfulfilled right now, dissappointed, possibly even empty inside, but I hope you will take some comfort in the fact that I very truly and honestly appreciate your devotion!
