    Well done on avoiding Twitter.

    Less well done on thinking that means you're a more valuable person as a result. Tit.

    Aaron,

    Well done typifying fastfude.

    Less well done with the pseudo-socialist put down.
    Oh and stop trying to be Shepard Fairey, that kinda got old after the Obama posters.

    In other news where does the whole "this thread delivers" thing come from? Totally missed that boat but I saw it a few times in that post with the guy trying to recruit for his christian band.

    Not sure, T Entertainment always writes it when a thread gets really rowdy, usually after the first post of "Nazi!". I think it's hilarious but I'm not altogether sure why...

    How on earth am I trying to be Shepard Fairey?!

    Oh, and I think your initial statement was more typical of Fastfude than mine.

    Far be it from me to point out that you could use Twitter to promote your blog. I know, I know, I'm one step away from speaking in tongues.

    Get off the bandwagon, he's been doing this since 1989, long before graffiti became 'cool' and financially viable and Joe Public started making such pictures in order to borrow some credibility.

    Calling someone a tit for not using twitter is amazing. More of this sort of thing. Twitter is really important for people full of their own importance.

    Christ, you really are a tit aren't you? You don't think I actually did that myself? Pretending it was my own style? It's a daft internet joke.

    Are you professionally dense, or is it pure natural talent?

    I didn't call him a tit for not using twitter. I don't give a fuck if he uses it or not. I called him a tit for acting like he was 'above' twitter. I've read his blog. He really isn't.
  12. avatar albrechtspencil
    Haha, either way you've a bit too much time on your hands, and you seem to be taking this quite personally.

    Here's some excerpts from your twitter:

    "New peeve. The printed on 'sticker' on Blu-Ray discs that declare that its playable on PS3s. So? Are PS3 users so retarded they don't know?"

    "Very pleased with myself after fixing my borked speaker. Now I have very loud stereo around my computer."

    "Heading to bed after a MayDay spent entirely in front of the telly. Best day in ages."

    Compelling stuff, maybe its time to take a break from your computer with the very loud stereo, turn off your iPhone and go outside for a bit. You never know, might make you less angry.

    Calmer'n you dude.

    Seriously though, that's your argument? You think my Twitter updates are inane (and you're right, a lot of them are) so therefore Twitter itself is beneath contempt?

    NAZI! (just for Deestroyer there).

    You're deliberately ignoring the two-way conversation that Twitter can be, presumably to try and make the point that its just people firing off random bollocks about what they're doing. However, like most users, I think you'll find that the vast majority of traffic is people replying to each other and interacting. Like a web-forum... And if you do follow the link to my Twitter page that's exactly what you'll find - my interactions with other users, a lot of whom I don't know in reality, some that I do, and some that I've actually met as a direct result of Twitter.

    Of course, I could equally post the contents of some nutter's blog, claim all blogs are therefore shit and sit back pleased with myself, not paying attention as giant fucking buses drive through the holes in my logic.

    Here it seems you think Ron's Twitter posts are inane, so you go on fastfude to complain about them.

    My advice for the future would be to wise the fucking bap. :lol:
  16. avatar Chi-Lite
    Ha, class.

    Ron, you're getting even better at this Fastfude pass-remark-ability than myself.

    No, wait...I think i've just caught up.

    Can I once again state that we're all wankers. Absolutely everybody who's ever posted anything on this forum. Wankers.

    I suppose the ones who just come here to read are alright though. Or are they?

    Well...are yous?
  17. avatar albrechtspencil
    OK, fair enough, I accept that twitter can be a conversation type thing but hey I was only making my original point to direct people to the blog, not to start some sort of twitter bashing war. But then you called me a tit and I gladly sunk to your level.

    If you want to use twitter that's fine with me, the point I was making is that I don't like my digital existence to start taking precedence over my actual life so I don't like the constant 'always online' aspect that twitter provides. I think it takes away the focus from actual real human interaction, like when people go to parties and update their online status like three times and only take pictures so they can post them on facebook.

    In essence once you have to justify everything you do in the real world by posting about it in the digital world I think you are letting social networking take over your life. I know you might not share my qualms about living an 'always online' life but I think some people do and that's how I was trying to create interest.

    Oh and Anto, pulling the irony card on the internet? Ridiculous, I thought you would've been a subscriber to the post-modern 'irony is dead' philosophy anyway.

    Ah Ha! That's very enlightening, thank you very much. Although it kind of implies T Entertainment is somewhat of a sexual deviant that gets off on our collective rickety arguing.

    T Entertainment?
