RELEASEthe CRAIKEN

*WARNING* this may be overly long for general audiences,may contain elements of "scream of consciousness blather and..you've been warned馃樂 I haven't even actually writing anything in aeons,to boot




Context is everything. As I was going about my daily ablutions and firing up the coffee,I fired up the youtube and saw this pithy piece of wisdom

By bringing the world together, social media is tearing it apart.-Naval
And that was on a chess video,but I digest
This might be scream of consciousness but who was this Naval,and was it a battleship,an innie or an outie? Turned out he was neither but someone on Twitter
He continued," It's the people using it and not the social media itself"
NO KIDDING,BRAINIAC



OK,that last bit was rude,and I'm nott interested in social media

" I wasn't knocking it or putting it down..I didn't mean Social Media as a person or the users as a thing"

I'm more interested in my own 40 acres of bliss ,"anonymous social media" Similar Worlds,the little league of the genre. You know the white college bound guys going,you be like......!!!!!!

There seems sometimes to be a generational gulf wider than Lazarus and the rich man,or the Grand Canyon,in particular someone posting something to the "boomer"s,the older generation were unfair,interested in The Rona but not Climate Change馃拞

Now in this corner,the seasoned but clueless geezers that all think alike,like Donald Trump,Robert Mueller..Joni Mitchell who wrote Woodstock but avows to never being interested in all that "hippie stuff",or Magic Johnson who did neither

Micheal Jordan,Bill Murray,Samuel L. Jackson...all think alike on this or anything else馃榾 gotcha I never believed in this alphabet soup of time..or people,or music, think History I will be unkind to the 20th century and 21st Centurians just as we are to the more problametic parts of the medieval times

But that wasn't really my point...?!!!! I just thought that in the brief time between ,oh,Thanksgiving,which has passed in Canada ( French: Action de gr芒ce) to Christmas,Kwanza Hanuka or Festivus(the holiday for the rest of us) we release not the Kraken but the Craik-en,that term that started out meaning Whazzup,whats the buzz but gradually evolved into fun,revelry
we can do this!
