I recently noticed that I’ve been saying the word solid a lot; as a substitute for excellent or enjoyable. I have absolutely no idea where I picked up this new linguistic quirk or for just how long I’ve been using it.
Now I wonder how long it will take for people I spend time with to start using it in the same way. Word viruses are fun.
Is there a direct correlation between being ignorant and dismissive of social change and world events and… having a love of AFL?
Rebecca Maddern is taking over hosting duties on the AFL Footy Show. While most people would react to this news with a shrug of their shoulders and move on with their lives this news has caused a great many people to lose their minds. Upon hearing the news that Gary Lyon would be replaced, by a woman no less, many people took to the usual social media outlets to vent their rage.
“ I feel like me and Taylor might have sex / I made that bitch famous ”
Kanye West did another thing. And I don’t think it’s a big deal. Turns out that I’m more a fan of music and Rock & Roll than I am a fan of being easily offended; because I have no issue with this lyric. Perhaps it’s time to hand in my SJW card.
The painful discovery of missing person Jill Meagher’s body has awoken a wide variety of emotions in people all across the country; as such I’ve seen a lot of people use facebook/twitter/news forums/IRL to share their feelings about the horribly distressing conclusion to the Jill Meagher disappearance.
For those unaware of the crime I’m about to discuss, Jill Meagher disappeared while walking home from a night out with friends in Melbourne, Australia. This link provides an outline of the crime to this point. I’m going to attempt to express my feelings about this in my usual poorly structured and rambling way. These are simply my thoughts and I mean not to offend.
For me, this incident stirs up many different thoughts about many different facets of the event.
