Ho-hum

  1. If I had myself videoed on a busy day I might look like this too, minus the car, best friend, and lover: http://www.adbusters.org/media/flash/slow_down_week/
  2. Tom Hodgkinson expounds the evils of Facebook: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2008/jan/14/facebook
  3. He says: “Doesn’t it rather disconnect us, since instead of doing something enjoyable such as talking and eating and dancing and drinking with my friends, I am merely sending them little ungrammatical notes and amusing photos in cyberspace, while chained to my desk?”
  4. And “Facebook appeals to a kind of vanity and self-importance in us, too. If I put up a flattering picture of myself with a list of my favourite things, I can construct an artificial representation of who I am in order to get sex or approval.”
  5. Slightly sorry that I’m still using it. Am too exhibitionistic and bored.
  6. Heard of Benrik yet? Found it yesterday when I was supposed to be doing sodding assignment. http://www.benrik.co.uk/content/
  7. “Benrik’s mission is to introduce a welcome element of branded anarchy into our predictable lives. Benrik’s books are thus instruction manuals for warped living.”
  8. And “This Diary Will Change Your Life is a recipe for permanent revolution in people’s imaginations, encouraging them to reinvent themselves every day of their lives. It has spawned a worldwide cult and is now in its fifth year.
  9. They’re the epitome of inanity and promote careless abandon for the world and its stifling rules. LOVE IT.
  10. Activities it encourages its followers to do include “Befriend A Customer Care Person”, “Watch Someone Sleep” or “Discipline Other People’s Children”. A group of lunatics follow these tasks religiously and blog about them here. Horribly distracting. I’ve just added its Facebook application.

日子

今天天气好得不得了! 感恩。。。

这几天我都赋闲在家,当“陪读姐姐”。 妹子要考该死的A水准了,我能支持就支持。

我已下定决心不要去代课了。专心读书比较好吧。时间可以自由浪费分配,有空读读闲书,翻翻报纸,也挺自在。

在读英国作家 Tom Hodgkinson 的 How to Be Free ,很有趣。 很幽默,却不失真实性。 很多点子(把电视机丢掉、把手表丢掉)如果真的有勇气实践的话,说不定真的会带来自由。

对我这个天下第一大懒人来说,这本书似乎肯定了我的懒,终于有人写出我的心境,真是欣慰非常。。。作者认为,要自由, 就要与世无争,就不要被金钱束缚,就要选择自己的生活方式,不向这个世界妥协。他坚信,在现代社会里,得到自由,还是有可能的,只是在于你选择的生存+ 生活方式。 hmm…

Tom 的网上杂志 The Idler 宗旨: The intention of the magazine is to return dignity to the art of loafing, to make idling into something to aspire towards rather than reject.

对对!慵懒无罪,安逸有理!!

好了,我得忙那该死的功课了。
