Huh.

So color me not too impressed. This kid is the worst kind of immature drama addict and I doubt that it will serve him well after he moves on up to the big city or whatever.

So, since this is the only Britney thread on the blue (thank God, btw), I'll just make a comment.

I think she looked good! The performance sucked, granted. But she looked good, she had a little meat on her. It was nice to see someone on MTV that doesn't look like they spend 5 hours a day working out.

(Actually, when you consider that she's had two kids she looks better than just good.)

You know when you were really really young and still liked beef-a-roni and like everything you did was such a big deal because you were the oldest or the youngest or the most 'sensitive' and the more tortured you life was the more everyone seemed to pay attention to you and you would write the most heart-wrending soul-searching Pulitzer worthy poetry about the ineffability of your existence in some picture perfect suburb and then like your friends would encourage you to read it at the local coffee house and your mom would gush even more and at one point the school paper would publish some of your more emo writings?

Is this the "I'm gay and live in small town Kansas where no one can understand meeeeeeeeee...so I have to cry about it on youtube" guy?

I don't believe that kid is even gay. I would say it's an schtick designed to drive pageviews for his ad revenue...but he posts for free on youtube. If he was really gay and wanted to get out of a stifling and hostile environment...why hasn't he moved to San Fran or LA yet? There are plenty of communities around the country that would accept him readily, yet he apparently shows no interest in finding one of them. Actually, given how over the top and UNBELIEVABLY annoying he is, he may not make it there either. Can you be too flaming for San Fran? Or is it just his intolerable playing the victim personality?

On basis of the britney videos alone, I didn't care for him. But reading the salon piece, watching his better videos: I like him. He's creating his own, bizarre, fabulous world, and more power to him.

And I'm seconding distaste at the bizarre string of "lol looks like a girl" comments. I'm torn between suspecting those commenters just really don't get it, or they do but felt like being dicks anyway.

No, this is still MetaFilter. I still don't care if boys wear skirts or if girl can grow a beard or any variation of ambiguity therein - in fact I support it - I really just thought he was a she. I'm allowed to be confused and surprised occasionally.

That said - I don't think that eyeliner comes off. I think it's permanent.

People are dying. Of hunger, war, neglect, cruelty, sadness, confusion, loneliness, love. People are dying for no good reason, people are dying because there's nothing else for them to do. Most of those left are not left alive, only surviving, grapsing for anything they can get, and those with the greatest grasp and the hungriest reach are are grabbing on to the Earth itself and ripping it apart to fill a hole in themselves they cannot name and which only grows bigger each time they put something in it.

There are enough nuclear weapons in the world to destroy us all multiple times. Between the time I started writing this and the time I end this sentence, another species will most likely have gone extinct. It is entirely conceivable that my grandchildren will die in water riots.

And how will we do a thing about it? Most of us are too scared to have real conversations with the woman behind the convenience store counter, when what is needed is at the very least for us to stop, step out of the burned house of our own loneliness and routine, look eachother in the eyes, and scream, weep, laugh, sing, shout, chant, kiss, embrace, remember, and dance our way to the legislatures, the bank headquarters, the recruitment depots, the power stations, make it all stop, and then decide how to begin again.

And you. Here you are. Crying on the Internet about a wealthy phantasm you will never meet. The planet is dying, giving of its body to provide the resources you need to weep for the benefit millions over the silicon and pixel image of society's own fear of and boredom with itself.

I know you are not the cause, you are a symptom, you are afflicted just like the rest of us. I want to have sympathy for you. I do. I want to blame your progenitors for warping your youthful passion in to idolatry and fervent apathy. I want to blame those who came before and told you lies. But then I would have to blame those who came before them. And those before them. And back and back and so on, until choice, autonomy, agency, freedom - choice - is out of the picture. So I won't. I'm sorry. I'm sorry you're damaged, and I'm sorry Britney makes you sad. But it's time to wake up now. Please. It won't be long before you're just dead weight and the only true sympathy would be to deprive you of the phantasy which feeds you and just let you starve. So please. It's time to wake up. Alright honey?

I just don't buy his emotional authenticity. His overdramaticized gestures made it look like he was obviously acting, and his overly defensive response to those accusing him of faking it only make it look more surreal.

However, I'm not even sure if he's aware that he's acting. Does that make his emotions real? Or has he lost himself in his own façade?

The main difference between Kantian synthetic a priori and Reichenbach’s axioms of coordination is that according to Kant synthetic a priori principles are necessarily valid and unrevisable, while Reichenbach acknowledged that axioms of coordination are subjected to modifications with the evolution of scientific knowledge. For instance, Euclidean geometry is a priori relatively to Newtonian mechanics, while it is an empirical false theory in general relativity. Synthetic a priori knowledge, in Kantian philosophy, has two main features: first, it is necessarily and universally valid; second, it is constitutive of the object of knowledge (transcendental in Kantian terminology). Reichenbach accepted the presence, in scientific theories, of a priori principles which are constitutive of the empirical objects, but he denied that these principles are unrevisable.

Embarrassingly enough, except for the part about a picture-perfect suburb (I grew up on the wrong side of the tracks), yeah.

But this was before the age of the Internet and the age of emo, so I didn't have any real opportunity to humiliate myself outside a very limited circle of acquaintances, teachers, and high school counselors.

In retrospect, I'm glad.

Yeah? He's fucking 19 years old. At that age I was ingesting as many intoxicants as I could get my hands on. Somewhere in there I got a job with PIRG. But mostly I was concerned about getting as fucked up as possible, all the time, unless I really had to go out and earn some money, mostly to make possible more of the same. I dunno ... Sure, he's a bit dramatic, but so are most teenagers. And he's certainly no more self-absorbed than most bloggers, just a bit young, but also without comfortable place for his true self to exist; he should probably try to move. He'll learn lessons along the way, most likely. He'll be fine. He may even one day be as serious-minded and full of existential angst as you. One can hope, right?
