Ever wonder if your constant follower bitching is why you lose followers?
Of course I do, and to be fair (it’s about to get all seriousblog in here for a sec) I think about it a little every time I post anything. It’s because I have a tendency to get overly attached to people, so when someone unfollows me I worry that someone who I consider a friend (an actual friend with no “Internet” qualifiers) is forcibly disconnecting themselves from me and it makes me feel sad and stressed out (not the most attractive quality I admit, but I can’t help it. Not fishing for sympathy, just giving insight into why I do the things I do.)
That being said, I can understand how they can be irritating but I don’t think I bring it up very much and when I do I try to have a sense of humor about it. I always try to not take myself too seriously and to have a laugh about things, good or bad.
Or something like that. I dunno, I’m weird and stupid.
If you’re gonna go out during the night, please have the decency to stay out so I can light a candle and read or write a letter or something and NOT just for long enough to screw up my WiFi so I have to fiddle with it for 20 minutes to try to get it woking again.
If you can’t do this then please stay on so I can stare at my glowing computer screen all night like the stupid modern human that I am.
It’s part of my work at the gallery to promote some of the goings on there. And being the excellent volunteer worker that I am, I’m probably not going to do it. That being said, I think something cool is going on this weekend. It’s called XFest (I’m aware that, considering the name, one would assume it somehow has something to do with sex. It does not and I’m SORRY) It’s actually a big three day music festival starting tomorrow night. It’s described as such:
The format of the festival is simple and challenging: 15 visiting artists and 70 local artists perform. On Friday and Saturday evening there are 10 half-hour sets that include one visiting artist and three local artists. Performers include musicians, and visual and movement artists. Every set is an improvisation; the artists are playing together for the first time.
Fascinating no? It’s free (though a donation to the gallery would be great, as it’s non-profit) Now I know that the majority of the people who follow me aren’t local (I think only about 5 are) but I’ll be working there all day Saturday and It’d be pretty cool if someone from Tumblr came by to see me so I don’t die of boredom some of the cool stuff the gallery has going on.
