Living the Life of the Dude / Re: Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?
« Last post by meekon5 on Today at 11:38:38 AM »
I had a mobile whilst I was doing a union job at University and needed to be 24-7 contactable.

I then managed about ten years without one until I went to a recruitment agency (about ten years ago) and they refused to register me if I didn't have a mobile.

Unfortunately had one ever since.

My family get annoyed with me because I do things like turn it off, or leave it one room and don't jump to answer it when it rings.

...You get to a certain age and all the great actors (rock stars, personalities) in your life begin to die off around you.

Not to mention family and friends.  There was a line in the fourth Indiana Jones movie, uttered while Indy was lamenting the loss of both his father and one of his close friends and associate, that really stuck with me:  "We seem to have reached the age when life stops giving us things and starts taking them away."  Now, I don't believe there's a specific age at which this happens to everyone, but I do believe this realization comes to most people at some point in their lives (providing they live long enough, that is).  I've passed that age myself, so I thought this single line of dialogue was rather profound.

My first cell phone was forced on me a little over a decade ago, but the circumstances at the time made it a necessity.  I'm now on my third cell phone (the former models having been replaced only when they became unusable, not simply because the newest shiny thing was available), I've successfully managed to avoid the pitfalls and anti-social behavior associated with such devices, and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future.  That said, I've had a near-pathological hatred of telephones of any type for as long as I can remember and consider them to be a necessary evil, so that might have something to do with my utter indifference towards them.  ;D

If they can afford to help out a Dude without breaking the bank I don't see the harm. Especially when you consider travel, time, food, beverages, and the price of bowling. Sadly, the world as it is, makes the adage of time is money ring with a Big L and Walterish truth, but when you think about it without Walter and the menagerie of other characters of the big L to contrast the Dude how would you know what was truly Dudely. As long as you don't become nihilistic and have your girlfriend cut off her big toe and remember even the Dude knew when to say F@#$ the money man! you should be okay.

Go check out / JesusIsStoned

These guys are the definition of Dudeism, they don't give a fuck, are smart, philosophical, and chill.

Even their last show poster abided, with an image of The Dude himself.

Totally need to check them out.

Oh, and their name? Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars
I just saw this on the BBC website. It's a shame.

You get to a certain age and all the great actors (rock stars, personalities) in your life begin to die off around you.

The greats, man; they can't be replaced. :(

For example, my special lady is currently taking this way too far...

She, on the other hand, will not put the bloody thing down. If we're watching a film, she will now generally spend 75% of the time looking at Facebook and half glancing at the screen...

When I go out with someone I actually tell them they are not allowed to use their phone unless someone is dying.

We are all slaves.

Slaves to the machines.

Apple and the other mobile phone companies (Nokia, Samsung, etc) artificially created a need and we all bought into it.

We are all now psychologically dependent on technology we have no real need for.

Try remembering some obscure fact without googling it.

At a friends wedding the table I sat at someone banned the use of mobile phones and insisted we actually talk to each other without google etc.

Try it.
