In response to Tim Barrus’ “Eating Shit”

The recommend button is an addiction that confirms and validates you as a member of this particular magazine candycane. The whole like button paradigm feeds off our need to be among the herd. Moving toward the slaughterhouse where we will have nails driven into our brains and they will chop us up and sell us in the meat cooler at Walmart.

Well-said, Tim. You deliver like a sage, but with a crazy and raw energy.

You always hit the nail on the head.

I like your voice and appreciate your insights.

I’ve stopped checking stat. That brings me peace.

But I still recommend, though much less now, and never recommend any Big Girl. How would you be noticed without my recommend?

Please keep up as long as you can or are allowed to.
