The Nothing is Upon Us (a rant)

If the Chris Christie bridge story is front page news for ONE MORE DAY...I swear my head is going to explode. Whyyyyyy is this news?

It is about nothing. Absolutely nothing.

The only bright spot was Jon Stewart's mockery of it in his NeverEnding Story bit.

My spirits lifted a bit from Jon's comedy only be brought down again by this absurd sync of the new Bikini Bridge meme *extremely sad face*

Seriously, though, The NeverEnding Story is one of my favorite movies of all time.  And just like in the movie I feel that The Nothing is coming. No. It is here. It's upon us. I'm sick to the point of revulsion at society's elevation of non-worthy nothingness to some kind of wretched art form. 

I count myself among those of us that have an imagination, dreams, a spark of light inside us that conceives and conceptualizes and can create.  Yet, I don't want to anymore. I don't want to use my imagination to create one more speck of anything.  I don't want to fuel this ridiculous world anymore. I would almost rather see it get swallowed up by The Nothing. 

Except there is still ONE thing here that I love. Grrrrrr.

End rant.
