Why won’t you like me….


The more time I spend exploring social media the more I realise what a total shit place it is.  I do realise the irony of complaining about social media on a social media platform but life is full of such contradictions so get over it.    Over the past few months I have been spending a lot of time on YouTube and it is fascinating, in the same way that a trainwreck has a morbid attraction, to see the lengths that wannabe YouTubers ape the more successful tubers (Is that the correct collective noun – not sure?) .  In a way we are living in a Charlie Brooker nightmare world where likes mean money and to lose followers is almost cause for suicide.

I have no magic solution to this strange world we have all created but it does get my mind off the unfolding cluster SNAFU of the anointing of Boris Johnson – what world is he living in and more to the point why in heaven’s name do people believe a world that comes out of his mouth?

Anyway, here is a photograph of the sunrise on the summer solstice – not Stonehenge but close enough.

    I quite like the sound of ‘an ape of Youtubers’… evokes the imitation antics nicely!
    With you on the Bo-Jo front. Ugh.
