Even I don't always agree with my opinion

No, I did not write this. In fact, once you read its content, you will realize there is a certain irony in that I “googled it”, found it on “youtube” and copied it while listening to my “itunes”. Furthermore, I find it interesting that as I write this now, the three words (google, youtube, and itunes) are all underlined in that squiggly red line that Microsoft Word loves to paint on our creative writing projects every now and then. I wonder how long it will be before spelling dictionaries recognize google as a verb and youtube and itunes as nouns?

I first heard this rant about a year ago, and have wanted it ever since. While I was able to find some blogs on the exact speech, I was unable to find the rant typed out from start to finish verbatim. Once you read it, you may also find the comedy in the idea that people, like me, are actually using it as a catalyst to blog. Let me just make sure I type in full sentences and spell out each word in full length.

I won’t say anymore. Hank says it all. And while some of my friends are now referring to me as the real Hank Moody, I can only be envious of speeches like this. May someday I be able to write a character as well as Tom Capinos (creator and writer of Californication).

Radio Host: Well, what’s your latest obsession?

Hank: Just the fact that people seem to be getting dumber and dumber. Ya know, I mean we have all this amazing technology and yet computers have turned into basically four-finger wank machines. The internet was supposed to set us free, democratize us, but, but all it’s really given us is Howard Dean’s aborted candidacy and twenty-four hour day access to kiddie-porn. Ya know, people, uh– they don’t, they don’t write anymore, they blog. Instead of talking, they text; no punctuation, no grammar. LOL this and LMFAO that. Ya know, it just seems to me that it’s just a bunch of stupid people pseudo-communicating with a bunch of other stupid people in a proto-language that resembles more what caveman used to speak than the King’s English.

Radio Host: Yet you’re part of the problem. I mean, you’re out there blogging with the best of them.

Hank: Hence my self-loathing.
