Don't we all just love backlash?
No seriously, thought I'd share with you guys my mentality over creating this blog post of mine.
I woke up one morning with a sudden urge to create a blog entry about all the disgusting bloggers around, because it seems that recently there are so many of them?
What makes a disgusting blogger?
With the obvious exception of Maddox (and me!), disgusting bloggers, are, to me, either (1) pretending to be something they are not or (2) think way too highly of themselves (and not in a joking manner, either, like I do).
There are, of course, many other really ugly and gross people around blogging too, but as long as they know their place, I totally have no problems with them. =)
Some of you have asked me, "Why do you have to do this to all these innocent people? They didn't do anything to you!"
Well, look around you, people... Did I do anything to all those people who wrote all those mean stuff about me either? No sire, I didn't! And I tell you, people who write about me do it way worse... I guess I do deserve a bit of it. :D
So I thought to myself, what the fuck? Seems like it's a fair deal - I want fame, and I get criticism along with it, right?
Survive it, and I continue with my work. Can't take it? Stop blogging altogether, and change your url!
And surely you all concur, people on my list are all attention-seeking people wanting fame.
And so, if here and there some fuckers would write bad stuff about these people on the list, why not me? Why can't I? Just because I am a wee bit more famous?
Now that's not fair, is it? Afterall, my blog is a platform for my views, and I am free to write whatever I want on it.
These "victims", so called, are also free to rebuke whatever they want, if they so wish to.
Of course, the smart way out of this is to take the high road and act gracious about it instead of insulting me back (personally, I think, insulting me back would be so much more fun and creative), which will naturally get readers sympathizing with the underdog and making me seem like a bully.
DO I CARE THAT I AM CALLED A BULLY?
Not in the least bit! I'm already being deemed as bullying handicapped-toilet users, foreign workers, filipino rape "victims", why not disgusting bloggers to cap it all off?!
Please stop telling me whoever and whoever took it so graciously and therefore I suck. I DON'T CARE! I'm tired of being fake and PR and being the bigger person. I want to be the petty and smaller person! (childish, but blame Mike, he spoils me)
So anyway, as someone rightly commented, Maia did invite me to her album launch in September 2005. Then, I didn't know her well (I only met her once before, when she was still a singing teacher), but I'd say I sincerely liked her then.
Circumstances, and perhaps, people change, and when she was a star blogger with me, I started disliking her (or rather, her online self).
Once, she left a damn stupid and act-PC comment on my star blog, saying something sarcastic like I am very superficial since I judged some uncle in the airport in LA. I deleted that comment, and our relationship (so-called, the superficial one we used to have) soured.
The last thing I like to hear about myself is that I am being fake, and therefore I felt like I have the need to clarify.
I don't like all these 5 people's blog persona, and it is unlikely I will like them in real life either (I thought Celeste was absurd in real life but didn't dislike her, although her blog personality is like... barf), so I don't care if they dislike me (please do dislike me, I don't know what to do if you guys are nice to me, it totally throws me off course).
It is, however, inevitable that I will see some of these people in real life (Maia and probably Nicole, whom I don't mind), and I guess if I see them I'd just pretend not to see them?
Sigh, wish Singapore was not so small.
Somebody else said something about me being fired from, supposedly, various media, and therefore, I am the real sore loser here.
Just to clarify, I didn't actually get "fired" from Stomp. My 3 month contract ended, and it didn't get renewed. In this rein are also May and Choy, Jaymee Ong, etc. I don't know if they chose not to continue or not, but seeing that blogging once a week is not that tough, I'd say maybe they also didn't get their contract renewed.
It's no big deal - I didn't fit into their rigid child-safe blog criteria, and therefore, I can't do what I do best (write in-your-face blog entries), and so there is no point in keeping me.
Nothing wrong with that.
Speaking of retailiation, Steven Lim does it best, of course. =)
Honestly, that man's a classic. He says I am a chicken pie (mmm, delicious!) and also that I am horny, among other things. And he asks Wanbao to sue me!! =)
He also kept talking to Mike for a good part of the video, but Mike can't understand a single word he said because of *snigger snigger* his perfect English.
Mike's like, "What is this man raving about, man?"
(Gillian says that Girls Out Loud gave him a meagre amount for his part in the show, something like $20 to cover his cab fare or something)
