My Thoughts Exactly and Maybe Some Words If I Get Around To Writing Them


Before I left, I knew coming back would be difficult.
Feels good to be home.
NoNamesLeftToUse - My Thoughts Exactly.png

There was nothing left in the tank.

I was outta gas.

That's the last thing I remember.

  • Didn't want to sit around and bitch about being tired.
  • Didn't want the reflection of how I was feeling to be plastered all over my efforts once finished.

I'm human. I worked my ass off. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired so I took a break before I broke.

Now I'm all full of piss and vinegar again!

That's a good thing where I come from!

But who the hell is this Justin guy and why is he trying to hog all the spotlight!

This was supposed to be my big moment.

I've been away for four months. I take a break every year, because life. Everyone knows that. It's my thing.

Again — much like the last break — I was nowhere near an internet connection, for quite awhile. One does not need the internet to simply live life for a few months. Water and bananas, man. That's all you need. Beer, steak, sex? Ya! That too, but not always in that order.

So anyway...

Where was I?

Not here!

And you noticed! And you missed me! And I missed you, too.

Usually it takes quite a few consecutive days of thinking: okay, self. Today is the day you get your ass back on there and do something for those people who dig your style.

The planets aligned, or some shit like that. Finally, I'm back home again. Finally getting my daily dose of wifi fumes straight to the noggin again. Getting some good wholesome brainwash again, like the old days. Getting caught up on the happenings of this world. Feeling scared, again. The sky is falling, or whatever, like usual, again, like it always was, so that's nothing new, and I'm sure those behind freaking me the fuck out are proud of themselves. A job well done.

I wasn't even aware of what's happening in China right now up until a couple of weeks ago. The world could have ended and I'd be that dumbass last human alive dude, wandering around, wondering where everyone is and why nobody ever texts me back anymore.

Three weeks ago, a Corona was still a beer from Mexico, to me. Now it's something completely different and I'm not even sure what I'm going to drink this summer if nothing changes.

But that's neither here nor there.

On a serious note: I truly hope us humans come out on top. I got sick, I'm feeling better. Everyone else deserves that as well.

So anyway. When it was finally time to come here and begin snooping around, I must say, I was impressed with what I saw. A variety on the trending page and not much complaining taking center stage. Feeling confident the time was right, I began working on some art for a post. In case you missed it, that art thing should still be near the top of the post, where I left it. Something I hadn't done in many moons, finally finished, and it felt good to be back at work doing something I enjoy, most days.

Then this Justin guy shows up outta nowhere and buys Ned, or whatever.

And everyone freaked the fuck out!

Maybe this is a bad time, I thought.

I thought I was just in time but instead, it's Justin time.

I saw the whole thing go down.

Within seconds I counted 1000038 posts about it because I had nothing better to do that day. I saw the panic. I read the classic I quit! posts and thought goddammit I'm home!

Some things never change and I'm fine with that. When it comes to humanity on the internet, this place is as real as it gets. Nothing compares to it and I don't think I'd want it any other way. Please don't feel ashamed if you were experiencing a few uncontrollable emotions. That's life and I'd be full of shit if I claimed to have taken it like a champ.

I ripped down all my Ned posters.

Smashed my set of Ned mugs.

Poured gas all over the Valentine I made for Ned. Burned it then snorted the ashes.

After sixteen hours of trying to find out where this mofo lives, so I could pay him a little visit, but failing because I suck at Google maps, I decided to call off the search and move on to bigger and better things, like Justin.

I've met quite a few Justins in my day. Usually some good people, those Justins.

I had no clue what an "AMA" was at the time, but like everyone else, I was looking forward to hearing this.

I showed up to the party a little late and noticed something like 156 views on the counter above the video. Started shaking. How can I compete with this, I thought. This guy must be a huge celebrity on Dlive and now wants to take over Steemit or something. No more votes for ole @NoNamesLeftToUse The Writer/Artist Himself, I guess...

Conquered my fears first.

Then I hit the play button.

Justin on the left. That name I vowed to never say again, the heartbreaker himself with the hair and everything on the right.

I covered that part of the screen with a cat so I didn't have to look at it.

It was now time to get down to brass tacks and meet Justin for the first time.

I saw the finger touch the nose. I saw the finger linger. It moved some more. Then I saw the finger move away from the nose. I saw the eyes inspecting the finger. I could see his thoughts. He spent about two seconds looking at that booger and I thought: If this man puts that booger in his mouth, my career here is over!

I'm not sure if anyone else saw what I saw but for me, it felt like slow motion.

I'm so glad he didn't eat the goddamn thing.

How does one even compete with content like that?

Anyway.

It feels good to be back and it's nice to meet you, Justin. I'm sure we'll get along just fine.

I'll be out and about. I'm not sure if I'll be producing new stuff on the daily here right out of the gates; need to settle in first. When I left four months ago the community was focused on adjusting to a few changes. Some drama was taking center stage, like now. When this stuff happens, it becomes difficult to sit down, produce some art, have some fun, and expect people to actually pay attention to it after spending twelve straight hours debating in circles. This could be bad timing for me to start up Season Five, but I'm here, so I guess I'll just keep moving forward and hoping for the best.

It's really nice to see you all again.

Have a nice day.

Feeling good. Good enough anyway. Life always throws a curveball my way. The drama will always be there. I might look away though, rather than facing it. We'll see how things go I guess. I'd prefer things to be calm but these things aren't up to me.

16.02.2020 15:26

Just have some fun and take part where you want to turn your attention toward. It isn't bad to let the drama take a backseat of course, but that is hard in the attention economy at times. When you are ready for discord, you know where to find me off-chain :)

Welcomed back. I also used a 'justin' pun. U must of learned from ur PM. Actually I recommended your blog to someone I really respect as a person and a writer. He pointed out that you didn't post in a couple months. But he enjoyed what you posted. He has since passed.
Anyway, welcome back!

Thanks and thanks again! Much of that stuff stands the test of time. It's tough leaving, knowing full well some folks consider old stuff irrelevant combined with the internet's short attention span. Gotta do what you gotta do though.

Jist checked the timing, you left 2 days before the justin re-election and you returned 2 days after the justin buy out. It's just2 convenient.

AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEE, I just checked my fuckin' feed and I didn't expect to see your name out there. It's great to have you back, you should read some more and you'll laugh at the clowns who just bought Steemit, you'll have a good time

16.02.2020 15:02

For the most part, I'll be staying out of the politics. I just want to have some fun. If they're clowns, whatever. Hopefully they can laugh at me too.

Nice to see you back, and I’m a bit inspired to also take a break from Internet. Although right now so much is happening here I would have a hard time staying away hehe. So during this time do you hide out in the forest, go camping, or live in a bunker ? Or do you simple turn off your internet connection ?

16.02.2020 15:08
0

I go away, I come home. Even with a connection available, if I've decided to "detox" from this stuff, that decision is set in stone, until I'm ready to be addicted again. Maybe I'll write a few posts about my experiences as of late but I'm sure you know by now, I rarely speak of my life here. Good to see you again!

16.02.2020 15:30
0

I think we all need to detox once in a while. These days so many are completely consumed by technology, that we miss the big picture of what life is about.
Alright, I’ve decided the the only way for me to stop is to break my phone. If you don’t hear back you know it worked. Okay here we go I’m gonna throw it on the floor...

Damn nothing happened. I should never have gotten a Nokia ..

Folks a bit younger than I don't even know life without it exists. It's easier to quit than cigs but as you can see, I've relapsed.

Do those Nokias still bounce? That was always one of my favorite features.

I didn't miss you but I'm very glad your back. I would have been happier if it were @surfermarley coming back, but you are a decent enough 'comebackkid' replacement.
I think you were trying to sneak back in under the cloak of Tron but was spotted.....
And that's my comment. Until the next moment in time and space our narrow paths cross, Take care of yourself.

I didn't miss you either. To be honest, I forgot you existed, until now. Thanks for the reminder. Zing! Just messing with you.

I wonder if she'll ever come back. I'm sure that make a lot of folks happy.

There are a lot of great posters who have sadly drifted or suddenly gone. A bit sad but just life I guess. Looking forward to a post about how you managed with no internet though. I couldn't imagine it!

You definitely did not leave , because your Showcase Sunday is keeping you alive even though you are not around. I came to know about it few days back , so you already set up a brand that takes care of your presence, even though you are not around.

I didn't know that you take longer breaks so I was panicking and thinking that this was the end of the world!!! Can you see me panicking and running around aimlessly? That's what I did. For four months. So it's good to have you back. I can now stop.

If this man puts that booger in his mouth, my career here is over!
I'm not sure if anyone else saw what I saw but for me, it felt like slow motion.

I did and had to stop watching it before I found out because it was too exiting for me. Good to know that he didn't.

Nice to have you back!

16.02.2020 15:40

Running around aimlessly is apparently quite healthy, I hear. I can totally see it and might sell this idea now so I can afford even longer breaks, and help even more people. Hmmm.... I appear to be speaking out of my ass again. I should get that checked.

Nice to see you!

16.02.2020 16:12

Running around aimlessly is apparently quite healthy, I hear.

You are absolutely correct. Your ass is fine. But then again people should get their asses checked more often. To whom, I don't know, perhaps to the neighbor or some random guy on the streets. Tell me how did it go when you're done.

Fucking @neds hair maintenance costs finally got the best of him and he had to peace the FO... after grabbing the money and running of course. Oh well, good for him. However, I never thought he was a bad guy, kind of how nobody really hates god even though his creation is all twisted and messed up. Glad to see you're back though after an extended leave of absence. Now I can heal the abscess in my heart. Phew.

16.02.2020 15:48

What I wrote up there is just jokes. Ned is just some dude, living a life somewhere, combing that hair. Someday he'll lose that hair though. Then he'll come crawling back...

It's usually about 3-5 months. There will probably a short two or three week break in a little while. People should eventually see the pattern. I can't announce these things. Can't schedule it. Happens when it happens. I dropped quite a few hints before I left though. A few knew it was coming. So now I'm back.

Good to see you again!

That dude has a sense of humor. You'll be fine. Comedy sells out stadiums and that dude likes money. He might see all this, have an epiphany, then begin to see a little more of the potential in his purchase. Or it might go right over his head, meaning he's just another Ned.

I have a lot of catching up to do. Nobody blew up my phone, as they say, this time around, so that's cool. I guess I'm much like a television series. Season Five already... time flies.

What do they say about fine pieces of literature? They're nutrition for the soul? Brain? I'm not sure but that's what I felt once I finished reading this - as if I'd just eaten a very satisfying meal.

The future is always uncertain. That's life. Some folks enjoy pretending they can predict outcomes. Worry is usually another way people trick themselves into thinking they can predict the future. Sometimes that worry leads to more problems than the actual problems folks are worrying about. Isn't the mind a fun place to live in?

Yes, @NoNamesLeftToUsedefinitely a change that for those of us who suffered with the Internet signal we didn't know when we read the post about it, they changed our landlord and we didn't even realize it, so all we have left to do is to ask for more users with enough voting power and why not add another currency to the rewards, thanks and happiness always

"....more users with enough voting power." For years I've been saying this place needs far more invested content consumers. That's where the money is, in the entertainment industry, always. Of course, it becomes difficult to attract those billions upon billions of dollars if there's nothing here for the general consumer to enjoy. Paying consumers could easily outpace the inflation rate here, create strong demand for the token, provided they have an incentive to spend money. Anywhere else, people will donate money to content creators. Here they can spend 20 bucks and vote forever, supporting their favorites, as they do anywhere else. When they spend that 20 anywhere else, it's gone forever. The consumers must spend another 20 in order to continue supporting their favorite creators. Throwing that money away, everywhere else. The consumer gets a far better deal, here. They just don't know that yet, and the general consumers out there won't be too interested in supporting our constant barrage of internal posts that don't mean much to a general audience outside, looking in. I think I've become bored with yelling at the clouds about this simple problem though.

Twas a good break indeed. Quite a few lazy days that didn't require much thought happened. Some things I was putting off got put on. Caught up on some sleep. Normal people things.

I gotta say, I'm really impressed with you folks here today. I'm feeling welcome. My mind sometimes doesn't allow that...

16.02.2020 20:56

I was only saying to my brother last week where the hell nonames was and then here you are. I said your name three times in a row so...yeah, I conjured you like Beetlejuice. 😊

It's good to have a break...It can get a bit much sometimes. I haven't had one myself yet, maybe one day though.

16.02.2020 21:00
0

Yeah that whole saying the name thing is great and I save a lot of money since the phone companies haven't figured out a way to collect and charge us for telepathy, yet.

The break for me is necessary. Can't do this without it. One can't live forever spending hundreds of hours on artwork, plus writing, plus chillin in the comments, plus living a life, constantly running on little to no sleep. I'm unstoppable when I get into the groove but it kills me to death every single time.

Hahaha, along a couple of other lines, this one made me laugh out loud. Cats looking at me kind of disturbed. But thanks for that. 😁👍

Steem, kinda like that song, not the Anastasia reference, though I can relate to that. The one with those singing birds about 'Hotel California'.

You know that line: "You can check out, any time you like, but you can never leave."

Holey macaroni said the politically correct, never.

Does China still have vagina? I've been out of the loop for so long and require a refresher course. I'm sure Google has the answer and I can't wait to search these terms and have this information added to my profile so when I'm an old ass man, I can be reminded by some stranger doing "random social audits" about everything I ever cared about for my entire life. Damn that sentence was fresh as fuck.

Welcome back @nonamelefttouse, but to @ned and @justin, whose weird post this week has set the community wagging with so many unanswered questions!

Hey! Your style of combining prose and poetry is unique, a hybrid genre needed to be adopted by all literary enthusiasts!

Welcome, again and again!!

16.02.2020 23:57

One question was answered for me though, personally, without asking. I can tell that Justin dude at least has a sense of humor. They both joked about the random compliments on their feeds. Ned basically did the same joke about someone saying he's amazing or some shit like that shortly after but his delivery was off and he forgot raise his voice and sound sarcastic intentionally. For someone who doesn't speak English as a first language, Justin did a good job with that joke. I know some folks took those little quips seriously but I could sense the humor there. I'm sitting here analyzing humor at a time when things are tense, which is kind of lame, but whatever. That's how I am I guess. Oh! I also ramble in my responses sometimes as well. What's up with that?

We all need a break, glad your feeling better and the gas tank is full again. You didn't miss too much, drama, rage quits, trolls... as per usual but that's not out of the norm around here.

The booger thing...eww but hilarious :)

I always come back. Breaks for me are common and I always go POOF like that. Was there drama while I was gone? Honestly, on the surface at the quick glance, once I was back and looking around, things seemed tranquil. Guess you gotta dig for the good dirt...

Boogers are like opinions. Everyone has one. That's how that old saying goes, right? Something like that.

Welcome back to the machine @nonameslefttouse! You picked a great time for Episode V, because why not make a grand entrance while everyone is all stirred up? Twitterpated... and all those other good words describing... yeah...

You can pretty much always rely on Steemlandia to serve up a steeming pile of drah-mah. Which can be useful fodder for creativity...

So anyway, good to have you back!

You're right about that drama being creative fuel. Perfect environment for a humorist or two, provided we can laugh at ourselves, which is quite healthy and always a good sign of confidence.

17.02.2020 01:54

The joys of attempting humor. Made you laugh. Made quite a few laugh, apparently. This is good, especially when one truly doesn't know if something they did is funny, until the people laugh. Then the people expect to always get a laugh and the humorist must be on at all times.... which leads to chaos within the mind of the humorist and he goes nuckin futs! Hence, the breaks. Break. The word has more than one meaning within this context. See if you can find them all!

Anyway. It's been a long day here for me. Probably a good time to get some rest. I enjoyed the humor in your post. Thanks for that.

Every time I've announced the fact I need a rest, I end up sticking around for weeks or months after. I find it's best to just go, see where it takes me, then return when there's no reason to be away. Can't schedule a return date because what if I don't make it back in time or something comes up. This mysterious approach of mine seems to be the only way to get it right. It'll take a little while though before I can get back into the daily grind and have something new every day. That's the next step though.

I saw the mention dude. I've read nearly all the messages and mentions I received since being away. It would be easy to allow the kindness and praise I receive here go straight to the head, inflating it beyond all known stress limits. I would have blown up a long time ago though, had I allowed that to happen. One of the first things I had to learn here after showing up so many years ago was how to take a genuine compliment. Years later I'm still confused and can't figure out what the hell it is that I do "right" to impress you folks and get a reaction like this or the kind words while I'm here or away. A simple "thank you" is all I can ever seem to come up with in response and it never feels like enough but it's all I have. The simple words take the place of a feeling I can't describe.

So much uncertainty and confusion happening around here lately, yet my face is still feeling the impact of the smile that first started while I was sitting here writing the jokes and continued on throughout the day as I sat here experiencing this reaction from everyone. Those muscles hadn't been used in a long time. Still stiff. ...And that's just me being real with you.
