I am currently trying to raise funds so that my sister and I can make a movie we have been working on together for years. So we started an indiegogo campaign, and are working on starting a few more campaigns as well. Now, I knew that we weren’t to get our goal overnight, but I am really starting to get pissed that we have raised practically nothing because our so called “friends” keep scrolling past the links and ignoring our pleas for help. But I’m not surprised. It is so much easier to ignore something on a social media site than to ignore it when it presented before you in reality. I am so fucking sick and tired of trying to use social media to reach out to our peers and getting absolutely NOTHING back in return. I support all of my friends’ endeavors, but I am starting to realize that it doesn’t matter how hard you try to accomplish something, you always have to rely on unreliable people and therefore will always get fucked over. I have used my twitter, my facebook, my imgur, my linkedin, and now I am here bitching about it. It just goes to show that no matter what, if you are not posting nude pics or sucking on a cock or blasting a celebrity no one is going to care about you in social media. In a world where being told what to do is much easier than taking initiative and figuring things out, it is increasingly apparent that the next generation wants nothing to do with creative projects or art, they just want notoriety and fame and fuck everybody else. I hate seeing people succeed when they have not a single creative pulse in their veins, and the real talented artists have to struggle for the rest of their lives. The public as a whole has been brainwashed and only buys into what’s popular, as it has been for decades, but it is becoming increasingly narrowed to the point where being stupid is cool, or being gay is the thing to do because everyone else is doing it (never mind the fact that this not a choice, it is how people live). Thinking for ourselves has become an ancient practice and I am saddened and terrified at the idea of having to watch the next generation take over and destroy everything we ever held sacred. Congratulations guys; we are royally fucked and nobody gives a shit enough to do anything about it.
