I'm Keith. I'm 27. I'm Australian. I've never really been the kind of person who fits in, anywhere.
I tend to stand out, for better or worse. I tend not to care what most people think of me, except the people who encourage me to keep being me.
I'm the kind of guy who will quite happily walk down the street in a trenchcoat, top hat, vest, and tie, and not care about the weird looks I get.
I've got three piercings, and one tattoo. I'm looking to get more tattoos, but I'm not sure about more piercings.
I vent my frustrations, anxiety, and depression by writing what could be described as rock music inspired poetry, and frequently by just simply writing about them on this very blog.
I believe the world would be a better place, if we could each make an effort, at least once per day, to make someone else smile.

I’d just like to say how much I appreciate my girlfriend.
She puts up with all of my negatives, and helps me to accentuate the positives.
She’s fully understanding of the fact that I use this blog to help people, and that I can’t always tell her everything that people tell me here, because I’m sworn to secrecy.
She knows me better than pretty much anyone, including all of the bad stuff about me, and still loves me. And I feel the same toward her.
I feel like this is what a relationship is meant to be like.
I mean, if someone fights me, chances are, I did not agree to the fight, and therefore did not agree to any rules. If I’m forced into a fight on someone else’s terms, I will assume there is no rules.
I’m not going to lie. I was a little disappointed by this event.
I mean, honestly, all of the in-ring action was good, and entertaining… But some of the results were disappointing.
For what it’s worth, though, I believe this event was a kind of “throw away” event, not intended to make any serious changes. It was just intended to help put things in place for Summerslam. So, I guess it wasn’t too bad, with that in mind.
However, I’ve adopted a rule that if the person trying to draw me into an argument does any of the following, I will not allow myself to be drawn in:
-Typing like a 12 year old sending a text message. (If you can’t be bothered taking the time to articulate your point with, at least, close to correct spelling, it’s probably not worth your time, anyway)
-If I make multiple points, and you pick just one to attack, which relied on the others to make sense. (If you can’t read and comprehend multiple points at once, I feel bad for debating with you at all.)
-If you attempt to make it personal, and condescending. (If you want a debate, keep it about the debated subject, not about how I look, what my name is, etc. We’re not first grade students.)
-And finally: If you attempt to derail a debate into a racial, political, religious, gender, or sexuality issue where there is none. (For example, I knew a guy once who, any time he thought he was losing an argument, no matter what it was about, would try to insinuate that no-one would be arguing with him if he wasn’t asian. I mean, really, one time I saw him do that to someone who was simply telling him that driving without a license is a risk to the owner of the car, as much as it is to him.)
I recently gave some thought to the subject of why WWE’s main event scene seems very bland lately… And I’ve realised that it comes down to two factors.
Factor one: WWE is too hesitant to pull the trigger on moving any newer stars up to main event status. And with so many current and former top stars retiring or injured, this leads to a very limited number of people they trust to carry the WWE world championship.
Factor two: I’ve noticed a trend, however, that when WWE -does- push someone new into that main event scene, there’s always that very vocal part of the fanbase who simply reject that new person, for a variety of reasons, ranging from “It’s too fast/they haven’t earned it yet”, to “Their move-set is too limited”, all the way to “They’re friends with someone in power, so they’ve just used that to get ahead”.
Basically, though, I feel like something needs to change in the next 2 or 3 years… Because Cena and Orton can only carry the company so far. Cena’s probably only 1-2 injuries away from having his career ended, and Orton can’t carry it on his own, without an equal and opposite force to go against.
Edit: I forgot to mention, too, the other issue. Factor one and two are actually linked by a third option that sits somewhere in between the two. I’ve noticed that sometimes, WWE brings a guy right up to that point of crossing over into main event status, and lets them press against the glass ceiling for months, never pulling the trigger. Never letting them fully make it through the glass ceiling.
When this happens, it usually leads to the fans getting somewhat bored of the character, leading directly from factor one, to factor two.
Especially when they insist that they’re more intelligent than average because they avoid genetically modified fruits…
But they all live so far away.
Chances are, if you regularly read my posts, you’re one of those people, too.
If it was released as an “Axl Rose” album.
Axl’s new band made some excellent music on that album… but calling it Guns ‘n’ Roses still feels like a slap in the face.
But I think the most valuable lesson I’ve ever learned is that if you’re strange, there’s no point hiding it.
You’ll be lying to yourself and everyone around you, and worse than that… You probably won’t fool anyone except for the people who would like you for who you really are.
I mean, I honestly feel that I didn’t make any real friends, who truly accepted me, until after I stopped trying to be what everyone else wanted me to be.
Doesn’t mean that all their opinions are automatically wrong.
Even a stopped clock is right twice per day.
Nobody likes to have their privacy invaded. Even if it is done in the name of the law. Well, for some, especially if it’s done in the name of the law.
This leads to people inventing things that they can use to hide anything they don’t want being found, usually by disguising it as something “too personal” to search.
However, every time I see an invention like that, I think, “Well… this is just going to take a few people using it for illegal drugs or something, to lead to new laws being passed that make it regular procedure to search these…”.
So, in essence, sometimes, the people coming up with ways to try to preserve privacy, could quite easily be responsible for creating a need within the government to strip it away further.
I should make it clear, I don’t support random searches, or anything like that… I’ve been subjected to some myself, and didn’t appreciate it. But honestly, the more people act like they’re hiding something, the more reason cops will feel they have to search them.
it’s so cute when you talk to someone a lot and then you notice the little phrases that you use and the stupid little things you say slipping into their vocabulary more and more
My girlfriend seems to make terrible puns a lot these days. Almost every time, she’ll say to me straight afterward, “I’m turning into you!”
When they’re preceeded by an aura, so you know that from that moment your vision starts acting up, you’ve got less than an hour before it feels like someone’s trying to cave your head in with a sledgehammer from the inside… so you know it’s coming…
Or when they seem to come out of nowhere, so it feels like someone played baseball with your brain, and forgot to ask if they could borrow it first.
Either way, in my case, when they do happen, I tend to be pretty much useless to anyone and everyone for about 12 hours or so.
