Electronic Friends

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 6, 2010, 10:20 PM

as i sit here listening to the tweets coming from outside my lil world i have to wonder…How did we get here???
Does anyone hang out with real people anymore?
do they still have physical contact?
actually make eye contact with each other?
have we lost the need for "tone of voice"?
I sit here everyday and watch words on a screen seem to interact with me.
But are they real people or are they generated answers from some super computer.
do thee answers i read have anything to do with the real person.
or are the answers just the right response for the pictures that are posted on there "pages,ports,sites,blogs,forums,links,rooms, threads,feeds…and so on "
Every morning i have to chose what way to greet the world Hmmm?
do I tweet
do i e-mail
do i go live in my stickam room
do i blog
do i bulletin
do i mass comment
do i poke
do i nudge
do i whisper~
or wink~ you know that little impersonal one click act
that just creeps girls out with no other real purpose

What will make the motionless pictures on my screen Happy today??
maybe today i won't say anything~~`
i'll read there "about me"
and we can have a moment bonding my font to there font
my type written words, to their words

i watch and read on as i see our words start to match
i know we must be getting to be close friends

cause we type the same letters in the same order
using the same buttons and post them in the same places on our screens

they even typed a smile to me =)      Wow there really starting to like me now
maybe i should type them i story~~ i think they will like to hear…oops read
maybe~~~  i'll be creative and add some color to my story add some better facts

god knows they are adding to their story, there is no way everyone was the greatest everything

It's kinda like that past life regression crap~
~how can everyone have been the king or queen in their past life

and no one be the maids or slaves???

does anyone out there know who i am, beside my wifes and my son?
does anyone know the REAL me?

not just the one in the pix on my page and the stories they have imagined go with those pix
what colors do i like??
what animals do i like ??
what ones do i live with??
what was the favorite one i have had in my life??
who do i miss??
who made me what i am ??
who influenced me to be the artist i am?
FUCK!! what's my name?
What's your real Name?

Interaction : is a kind of action that occurs as two or more objects have an effect upon one another. The idea of a two-way effect is essential in the concept of interaction, as opposed to a one-way causal effect.

Is anything we do really have a 2 way effect anymore??

we post and post but the motionless pix don't change their expressions
they just stare out coldly unwavered and unfazed,

Is there anyone in there???

New letters keep popping up on my screen~~ they must be in there.
well something must be there,
but IS IT THE REAL PERSON that was in the pix that went with the words I read??
or is it just ~~~ the story they told me, they are.
We've all meet someone online~~ Chatted with them for days~ weeks~ months~

but when we meet them in person ~
why do they always look like they don't know us

if this screen life is so great
why didn't they grab us?? and hug us hard like we really bonded ??
like we used to bond in REAL LIFE??
it's cause were just ~~~~electronic friends
