It is irritating that I find it necessary to step-aside from myself and my actions to be ‘the narrator’, for a moment, so that I might just get a point across to a few people who probably already understand what I do and why.
Culturally, everything, by default, moves toward the moderate; toward that which is safe, digestible to the largest possible audience and doesn’t serve any purpose but to generate revenue while wasting your time.
I spend my time making an attempt at entertaining myself, first and foremost. This usually encompasses a few elements that attempt to, as much as is possible, distort convention so that, by contrast, convention “sticks out like a sore thumb”. The easiest way to accomplish this is to simply go against the moderate & homogenized background noise by being absurd, hyperbolic and/or confrontational/contrary.
Can you honestly name the last time that something truly surprised you?
The rudderless boat of cultural moderation (shaped by everything from over-sensitivity, to again, revenue generation) will always end us up dead center. Dead center is flatly boring and not a place that is worth occupying for anyone aside form those that lack the intellect to know the difference.
I hope I have made myself as unclear as possible.
