I spend a lot of time and energy trying not to be like everyone else. Actually it's not very hard, I'm kind of weird, but I do take pride in trying to do unique things and not be a cliche.
Well, so much for that. I'm a guy in a band with tattoos who wears all black, (the occasional flannel) has liberal tendencies and lives right next to New York City. My girlfriend is cute, I wear canvas skate shoes and read Howard Zinn and Chuck Klosterman. Check, check and check on the cliche meter. At least most people with my lot don't obsessively watch the NJ Nets and stand up for Van Hagar any chance they get. Those might be the two most "unique" qualities I possess at this point. But I digress, I should just start getting more comfortable with being like most other people in my situation.
Anyway, this was all leading up to the fact that I think this shit is cliche. Anyone with a computer, fingers and half an opinion have decided to unleash their brain diarrhea on people all the time now. I suppose my ego, or boredom, has lead me to the computer today with the perception that my opinion is remotely interesting. And because of Gaslight, some people might actually read it. Or it'll just add to my cliche status. Then I'll hate myself a little more, and sleep 15 minutes less a night than I already do, hence the name of the blog.
Even though it's 4 in the afternoon, fuck, I'm already a cliche Internet liar....
