(html) theme blocked (blip)

During my frequent random LJ searches, I am surprised by the large number of journals with sophisticated, professional looking layouts displaying intricate backgrounds, moods themes, icons or artwork but for some reason have no more depth to the posts contained therein than “I hate my parents”, “school sucks”, “I’m hungover”, “sup bitches”, “this journal is dead, I have a new one…” etc.

OK, granted most of those LJers are wondering what life is like beyond puberty. Still the fixation most of them have for Buffy, LOTR, Star Wars, Anime or whatever youth cult movement has their attention for the moment is tempered by the thought that if all this happened back in the ’70s we would be having to face “Smokey and the Bandit” or “Saturday Night Fever”(and Star Wars of course) themed journals. Gack!


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
