Almost, I'm not from New Orleans you see… Check the album embedded, perfect OST for a movie or TV series adapted from the novel. >>271668
OP here, that is an amazing quote from Cioran, describes me perfectly. As for the other 2 images, that can be the case for some wizards, but I don't see any of those things described in there as goals, such as, getting a (wage)slave job, as there's not much difference between slavery in the Ottoman Empire times and modern wageslaving besides the absence of physical punishment nowadays, I don't feel alone because there is no one I can relate to, and there never was, not only in my immediate environment, but on the internet as well, as Jung put it: "As a child I felt lonely, and I still feel like that, because I see and point to things that others do not seem to see and don't even want to see them. Loneliness isn't about not having anyone around but it is about not being able to communicate the things one thinks are important, or to having to shut up about certain points of view that others find unproper".
The lifestyle I have managed to more or less pursue (not fully, due to monetary constraints) makes me quite content and cheery, it's only due to the predatory plutocratic covert penal colony that is set up for anyone but the top 0.01% oligarchs that sometimes I feel frustrated as I have to do deal with so many unnecessary time-wasting activities (any kind of job, including white collar ones)to get the proper funds for said lifestyle.
As for obtaining degrees and credentials, that is something I'd like to have if it actually had a good benefit/cost ratio, but time will tell. If I get a proper source of income without them, there would be no point in getting them.
As for a S.O., I try not to rush things, and if it doesn't happens and I end up alone, that wouldn't change my life in any way, not even in a modest way because I've been on my own for the vast majority of my life, besides, there are many alternatives out there (for emotional comfort), moderate dependence liability opiates such as kratom, high dependence opites such as oxycodone, high dependence GABAergics such as benzos and GHB, highly effective and inexpensive older antidepressants, stimulants… and even chatty pseudo-sentient androids in the medium term future. With these, alongside the internet and digital media that helps from parasocial interactions, humans do not need each other anymore for emotional self-regulation at all.
I don't mind what my family thinks of how I lead my life, as long as that doesn't interfere with me getting money out of them, as for reaching milestones and getting anyone to recognize them I don't see the point, I've been isolated for half a decade and partially isolated for more than a decade, so, those are nothing but vestigial self-regulatory needs.
I'm 29 and I'm not addicted to any substance and I'm not depressed or even sad, I also don't have anything I regret for.
Basically all I need is proper funds without having to interact with people for more than 10 hours per week. So… yeah. It's tricky. In the meantime I need to deal with hostile co-workers in a wageslave job.
>"What if some wizards created a shared identity to shitpost & create an alternate reality game?"
What do you mean by this? I don't see how this is relevant to the topic of the thread. Care to elaborate?>>271658
"…another hassle judge experienced was making sure his futuristic movie actually seemed like it was said in the future, which meant choosing wardrobe that could be plausible 500 years from now, one day the production's costume designer brought in some clunky footwear that was made of plastic, Judge thought look at these stupid plastic shoes you'd have to be an idiot to wear them he was wary of using them in the film out of concern they could actually become popular by the time it was released, but he was assured that could never happen, cut to two years later and Crocs were everywhere. Another time judge wasn't far off from reality was when he shot two minutes of just a bare butt for the movie within a movie, titled simply "Ass", the crew went to a reform school and used 250 students for a scene where a packed movie theater audience can't stop laughing at this quote-unquote film, Judge assumed he would have to direct the crowd since a movie featuring just a flatulent butt surely wouldn't make any sense without context, to his surprise and dismay the audience all started laughing without direction and couldn't stop, Judge turned to his director of photography and pondered why they were even bothering to make Idiocracy when they could just release this…"
"That's only part of the story, when Judge sat down to write this movie, he exaggerated to such extremes that he never thought they would actually come true, at least in his lifetime, when asked
about this in a recent interview he commented: "I'm no prophet, I was off by about 490 years." There have been countless videos made comparing a certain political leader's speeches to those by president Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, Fox even shut down the possibility of Terry Crews reprising his role as president Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho for a series of fake campaign ads before the 2016 U.S. election, the studio feared the comedic videos would be viewed by some as attack ads, even the movie's jokes that seemed outrageous like the secretary of state being sponsored by Carl's Jr. "I'm a secretary of state brought to you by Carl's Jr" practically became prophecy when the actual CEO of Carl's Jr. was nominated to become the United States Secretary of labor. But it's not just political aspects that have made Idiocracy so relevant, its depiction of a society reliant on pictures for communication mimics the growing obsession with emojis, the film shows a world where curse words are no longer taboo but used as powerful marketing tools, which seems familiar… much like the movie's omnipresent fluid "Brawndo", that we would actually come to see COVID testing sites shamelessly sponsored by big name stores and drink companies, even a show like "Ow My Balls" or "Clash Between Phallic Monster Trucks" don't seem like they would be that out of place on one of today's countless cable channels and streaming services, corporate mega mergers like the movies ATT Time Warner Taco Bell have practically become reality look no further than Disney's acquisitions of giant brands like Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel and Idiocracy's owner 20th Century Fox…"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPCHh-ipJ5U
