He's brilliant, the little bastard. My favourite bit is:
'Existentialism is my favourite branch of thought'
I'm gonna friend him.

"it is this pseudo-intellectualism which bugs the fuck out of me
i know that most people who spout nonsense about fashionable theorists are woefully misinformed"
i sort of hate him, but sort of utterly UTTERLY love him. he's like Nathan Barley version 2.0 - new and improved!
Or at least, I would if he wasn't staring at me like that.
he appears to have like-minded friends...Oh how I hope they all form a band. please, please, please form a band...
a tad harsh pigfoot...
I want to read this guys "writing"
I wouldn't be here now talking to you lot
how can he be so self-assured at 16? I smell the work of Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker, this is way too funny to be genuine - some of this is LITERALLY unbelievable. I thought I was pretentious at 16 just coz I listened to Mogwai. this kid is undoubtedly BArley's younger brother.
His profile notes seem, in the main, to make sense, and he appears to have a sense of humour.
the whole point is, he clearly is being utterly serious as opposed to having his tongue in his cheek.
looks a bit like the ho_fo.
and ultimately attension seekers.
or however it's spelt.
from blink 182.
of spending too much time with sarky an sophia. LULZ!
you just smell.
but she doesnt notice me
cos she's watching wrestling
creamin' over tough guys
listening to rap metal
turntables in her eyes
YEAH SHE'S THE GIRL ALL THE BAD GUYS WANT!
Bowling For Soup?
guntrip will get it
andru asthetik or something, now that profile was pretentious
How are we to take these people serious?
I had them in my top friends until yesterday. Dropped Louise for Agaskodo Teliverek. Hope she doesn't mind.
now that is scary enough to give anyone nightmares.
he is SUCH a ponce.
at least he's got rid of the overlay where he was his own top friend, 16 times over.
i could leave a message but you need to know personal details i.e friends/family, on this basis I presume he won't have many comments left for him coz I can't see him having many friends can you?
he looks even scary on this profile pic!
i'll sign off now

he may very well mean the american embrace, original 80s emotional hc types...*
I think... Basically not the shit british embrace.
*note, I may be completely wrong genre-wise here.
'the education system is biased against intelligent people
the government would rather we were unquestioning, law abiding, passive citizens
intellectual inquiry is discouraged at school
gcses are designed to this end'
This isn't pretentious. It's just true.
i was with him on that. but the he started spouting a load of horridly biggoted shite about private schools and i lost him.
&driving 4 by 4s? fine by me. &hating on jeremy clarkson..???
he quotes the whole of one of my favourite poems and bigs up the murder of
its just that he thought displaying them on myspace was the best way to air them that makes him pretentious.
have an unnecessarily pretentious air about them.
E.g. 'Existentialism is my favourite branch of thought'
Although I still love him. I'm glad he's engaging with his teen angst in an articulate way.
the pretentiousness lies in the fact that he thinks myspace is the best place to air his views, if that makes sense, whilst retaining some air of being too good for the website.
"I was going to keep this section short for a while.
however, as this website is a monument to narcissism
i shall describe myself,
extensively and tediously."
the first paragraph makes me go: pretentious twat.
then alot of it makes me go: um, yeah i guess...
then he goes off on a rant about hating people which makes me go: aww, i feel a bit sorry for him :''''(
and he does suggest sending people with eating disorders "to africa". twat.
I'd much rather meet someone like this than someone whose myspace says "Music: a bitta anything rly" and has left the books section blank
im not sure th lad has a sense of irony/humour. in fact im sure of it. i think that's why i love him so.
just a bit too defeatist for my liking
it usually says
"I don't read, got a tv lol!"
"can't beat harry potter lol!"
i enjoy my own company and find most people insufferable
I think i can be quite funny
i am intelligent and hate letting people down
i get easily attached to people, not places
if you earn my loyalty, its there for good
unless you break it
as far as trust is concerned i don't give second chances
i think i may be borderline depressed
but not to such an extent as to seriously affect my life or well being
i am often ill
i write, all the time
catharsis is my saviour
i can be very kind
but more often than not i'm grumpy and aloof
most people think im an arrogant, hideous dickhead
whilst this is untrue, i enjoy this reputation
it means i dont get approached
however, it also means i have to convince people im not on a daily basis
i often smile at strangers
i love making small talk with someone kind of an older generation, someone i dont know
i hate making small talk with people my age
i have mood swings
and my dreams affect the way i am all day
i sometimes have the most terrifiying nightmares
i have a rampant imagination
i would rather be in the background, unless im drunk or the conversation is engaging
i like having protracted debates with people
about inconsequential matters
generally i am not easily offended.
but there are a couple of things that really get to me
i'd quite like to be liked
but i dont go out of my way to make this happen
for other people, i see the bright side
for myself, the negative
i often have cripling anxiety about my future
i my be an alcoholic in later life
It's better to be as over the top and pretentious as him than absolutely boring. Complete twat, but also a genius that I want to be my best friend.
than to be that over the top and pretentious.
He says he hates how the education system favours the intelligent and yet he appears to be a member of the 'CRGS rocks!' group, CRGS being the local grammar school. sigh.
i go there. in fact, i'm a member of that group.
he is a member of the infamous Street light youths? in which case, adumcs, you are in luck, he has already formed a band.
ps. does crgs really rock?
or one similar.
does crgs really rock? hmm. it's mostly cunts really, but i have a good time.
sure, he's evidently a knob, but most of his views are quite good, it's mostly his way of expressing them.
If he wasn't a walking cliche
can agree on that. though being 'nice' = not rocking the boat, quite often.
On one hand though, I would look at him in a good light. He's got something to say, and he's prepared to say it. It beats the usual 'i love my mates, and i love going out and getting drunk' tedium.
But the thing is, he's only 16. I've got so many massive opinions on things I could put on my profile, about things like the war and stuff. I don't though, because I realise I'm still only a child and I'm probably misinformed or not totally clued up on most things. That's why I don't talk about them. I've still got infinite things to learn, so I'm in no position to give huge speeches on what things should be like.
Also, that kind of harsh tone he adopts to type it all out - its unattractive. People see it and think 'What a twat'. He wouldn't be like that in real life, because if he was, he'd have no friends. You've got to be a lot less insistent to blast your views at people. It puts them off you.
I used to be similar to a lesser extent, but I changed my MySpace to reflect me a bit more. There's nothing I love more than to talk about things like the war, but making such broad statements when you're 16 is never a good idea. Its why I do it on here. I'll probably never meet any of you, so it doesn't matter what I say to y'all. Also, there's the fact that most the stuff I come out with is provocative nonsense.
or if they're your real life friends anyway, why does it matter?
and learn that way.
that its the way he writes it that puts me off him. Although I do agree with most of his views, I find some of them contradictory, I think he still has a lot to learn, as do I. I think those blog type things are best kept brief, and if you do have beliefs you feel the need to share, myspace is probably the least effective medium to express them.
I hope he never paints.
...the bit about him hating organised religion, then HEROES : Jesus Christ.
jesus wasn't a fan of the church, by all accounts.
of the bastardisation of the church, but to say the founder of the Christian faith wasn't a fan of the church is slightly strange. I do agree with tommyroxx though, saying that the church is just an opression of the masses, but classing Jesus Christ, who's teachings are the basis of almost all of Christianity, is hypocritical. Then again, he does admit that he contradicts himself every day.
as one of your heroes, forgot to write that.
that's like blaming Marx for Stalin. He was the founder of the Christian *faith*; if any one person was the founder of the Christain *church*, it was St Paul.
not marx. or stalin.
but I did say faith. Maybe its not as contradictory as it first appeared to me, I can see what he means now, he agrees with the teachings of Jesus Christ, but doesnt agree with how his teachings have been twisted into an oligarchy expressing their power over the masses, threatening them into obedience with possible eternal damnation....hmmm...
may only mean he's read a bit of nietzsche
so this, again, is fair enough
but so far this bit is tickling me the most:
"i will come out and say it
i am a class warrior"
what a stupid prick.
that bit was somewhat less sound, thinking about it.
exactly what a "classwarrior" is?
where you go into your form, throw some stuff about and then hit the unpopular kid.
