Frantic Thoughts Ep. 70 - No Internet!!!!!!!

Post by FranticSociety » Sat Oct 06, 2018 2:09 am

Imagine a world where there was no internet. It would be weird. I kinda talk about that but mostly I go into a bunch of other topics because I can't ever stay focused. Some call it a.d.d. or a.d.h.d. but I just call it insanity. Maybe insanity is a bit harsh of a word, but honestly I cannot even focus for 2 minutes tonight. You know what else is pretty harsh? Vodka. I rarely drink hard liquor, and that shit is probably the worst. It's like a cleaner for your insides. Like i'm drinking pine sol or lysol... one of the "sols" but way, way worse. I tend to avoid things like that. It's not really worth it to take shots and not feel anything then instantly feel sick. It can be a bummer. Yeah... anyway I should quit typing because I really don't know where this is going. I had a good time with this episode. Episode... that's such a weird word to say. Ep. Is. ode... I dunno. it's just like any other word, you say it enough and it starts to sound weird or odd. Seriously try it with ANY word... Fork Fork Fork Fork Fork Fork... starts to sound like I made up a word. Man I just realized I didn't talk about the Good Place coming back. That show is forking awesome. The premise is a lady passes away and goes to heaven, but she kinda sucks. Like a lot. she's a bad person. like real bad. and yeah it goes from there, but gets a lot weirder over time. worth the watch for sure. Uhm... oh yeah this is a PODCAST DESCRIPTION. I rant for 30 minutes about stuff. I hope you like it. The podcast main logo is by @BBshelbo on twitter, she's a great artist go check out her stuff. The music is from the scott pilgrim ost, it's rad. You should listen to it. Also, mario 64 theme at the beginning because I like it.
Thanks for listening.

Big shout out to Mars Colony!

Imagining a world without the internet isn't that hard for me because I didn't have access to the internet at home until I was 16. I suspect I'd enjoy reading and listening and playing with as much frequency as I did then. Mainly I would miss out on the fact that the internet has allowed me to meet some great friends, like the people in this club. But I suspect I still would have joined clubs in the forms that they existed before, and participated at conventions and conferences. I have noticed that no longer having notifications for Twitter and Instagram has greatly reduced my anxiety, and I really only go to this website, Gmail, my bank and bill payment, YouTube, and Amazon on a regular basis anyway.

I love Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Glad you were able to pick up that Blu-Ray and enjoy it again.

The movie I'm totally psyched for is Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse. I love the Miles Morales books and Spider-Gwen books. The art style is absolutely amazing.

I had internet since I was about 9 with AOL and I've been on it a lot ever since. I guess I just got really used to it.

It's glorious, I never knew I wanted it until I saw the trailers and now that's the main movie I'm looking forward to!
