Anguished Repose began as a result of my constant tortured state internet awareness, which I experienced, back in 2010.
There was nowhere, no PLACE, I could go to on the internet that wasn’t filled with talks of political diatribes, reiterated a thousand times over, or boring ruminations (often lewd) of what the newest Public Celebrity Interest was up to.
Didn’t care about any of it then. Still don’t…NOW.
To say I was anguished with all the utter lack of “interesting” the internet had to offer then, was putting it mildly. I was going mad!
In an attempt to coral what was left of my sanity, thankfully, an epiphany struck: “If I can’t find anything intellectually enjoyable on the internet, other than the same mind-numbing of ‘why-should-I-care’ and ‘what-me-not’s'? I’ll just have to create it myself.”
Here? I want to first make you laugh. Then, if I’m lucky? Make you think.
Even if it’s just for a second.
I want to introduce you to new and interesting things, by tying topics together you would never have searched out in the first place, because never doubt it…
Never mind that no one else on the internet ties daily news articles together, but rather reports on topics one boring, stand alone article at a time?
There is a connection. ALL things that exist, and are connected and in ways that boggle the mind.
Or? There could simply be a connection because my mind is just broken-twisted enough to find one.
One just has to take the time needed to draw those interesting connections.
Here, thanks to my anguished repose response to the internet?
I have the time, I have the desire and the need to set it aside, and pull it all together…
Just for you.
Stay, read awhile and most importantly?
