It’s time for me to take a bit of a break from the internet. Too much crap, both in the news and with many of the blogs that I stealthily visit to swipe stuff from. Therefore it’s time for a break. I’ll be back Thursday or Friday.

In the meantime, there’s lots of OLD ODD in OLD ODD in case you’ve missed any ODD.

Have fun.

    Rest, Recovery and Rum, not necessarily in that order.

    As much as I will miss your post in my morning routine, I understand. I’ve had to hit mute on more than one site recently including FB.

    I can understand to some degree how you feel and the need for that rest.
    Sometimes I think the internet has run its course for those who have been on it for a long time. I use to collect photos etc from the internet and put them in files for some use later and then when I started going through the hundreds of photos I realized ‘gheesh….they’re basically all the same”! So going through the world of others often gets repetitive and frustrating.
    But I think it’s not just the internet, but the world and life in general….it seems to be ‘getting to’ everyone. Life has changed (yet again) but not for the good. We live in a consumer, buy as much as you can and go into debt society. We have politicians who have become kings and queens instead of employees of the people. The rich get richer and the poor poorer while those in the middle are either disappearing or are thrown the occasional bone by the powerful to pacify them. Technology is destroying jobs. Commerce is so connected to everyone in the world that any blip has an effect on everyone else. The powerful, the wealthy, our leaders and those in authority have learned to lie and cheat even better than the past. People on the planet are starving and dying from disease and being slaughtered for one reason or another and yet the useless Kardashians and similar idols are more important. Depression is all around us….the news, the reality shows, the fake news, the inflated news for dramatic effect and of course more attention which translates to money. Hell, even the weather has been turned into another reality show!
    The world is a mess and unlike the past where the lies and corruptness and bullshit and thievery and hatred only had an effect on some people on the planet… now has a degrees of effect on all of us.
    Then with all the depression around us what do people do? Well for the most part they go out and buy happiness, a new car, new home, new cheap furniture (but it’s new!), clothing, and the list goes on and on and on and on.
    So Oddman I’m guessing roams the internet looking for flowers for his blog and he sees constant repetitiveness and the same bullshit and probably hate and anger and it’s like a huge grand piano of CrAp constantly bouncing on his head, that eventually gets to him. All kidding aside there is a chance that he has a case of PTBD (Post Dramatic Blog Disorder).

    Anyhow, y’all have a good evening. I’m off to do something dark but fulfilling.

      PTBD. That’s one I’ll have to remember. Never thought of it that way.

      There is an increasingly higher amount of repetition on the net. I am so tired of the 18-22 year old girls in a bikini bottom with an arm across their boobs hiding their nipples. It was done to death 5 years ago. Memes are bad and repeated constantly. Many pics from 3-5 years ago are being re-posted as new. I’ve even found a few that I made/did 5-6 years ago repeated on other blogs. LOL.

      Many blogs that I’ve followed over the years have disappeared. Their original content died with them. Even Russian and other eastern European blogs are now posting little original content. It’s sad. Original content is becoming difficult to find.

      It is taking more and more effort to post things that I find funny/odd/strange/etc. I could go with 40-55% semi-naked 18-24 year old girls in the daily post. InstaGram Babe of the Day. Croatian Babes of Yesteryear. Babes With Big Bad Booty Bikinis. How They Look Now. SHOCKING. Not happening on ODDMAN.

      A few sites that I visit have rather disturbing pics at times, but wonderful pics as well. I learned a long time ago not to see some things that I see posted. The world isn’t always happy and fun.

      We won’t get into politics. Regardless if you’re right or left wing in your politics, I am SICK of the hatred that both sides spew. We’re supposed to be adults yet 5 year old children behave better than their parents. I used to be a news junkie and now I seldom even read/watch the news. There’s very little reporting actually done today. Everything is an opinion piece. The days of reporting facts only is long, long gone. Too often we hear a discussion panel being asked, “What do you think…?” Who in the living fuck cares what they think. What is actually happening and tell me about it. I don’t want your fucking opinion on a news report. Facts are not opinions. Opinions are conjecture, on par with crystal ball gazing and reading goat entrails. That goes for both the right and left wing believers.

      The world is screwed up and it will not get any better. Belief is more important than fact. Following the herd is more important than discussion. Celebrity status showing T&A is more important than thought. Critical thought appears to have vanished. Ignorance is rewarded. Everyone wants their 15 seconds of YouTube fame. It’s all about, “LOOK AT ME.”

      I post some of those pics, but not nearly as many as I run across every day. The number of obviously staged, yet incredibly dangerous stunts astounds me. No ability to think about consequences. Even as a stupid teenager in the 70’s with lots of beer and good dope, I could recognize actual danger before I did something that could likely maim or kill me.

      So these are some of the reasons that I need a break every now and then. I enjoy, for most of the time, finding and compiling the posts. Sometimes though, the world does get to me, just like it does with everyone else.

      I’m back on Thursday with a message and return Friday with my regular postings. I try to see the sun as I go through each and every day. I hope that everyone else sees it too.
