Thank God Facebook is censoring out disturbing News. If content is my alcohol then Facebook is one of my favorite bars. I go to get loaded relax, dull the senses and
enjoy. The last thing I want at my local bar is some guy with disturbing political
truth. What a buzz kill !! So censor away Facebook and make mine a double.
Recent stories of Facebook experimenting with filtering the tone of posts in a subscriber’s news feed to change their mood should come as no surprise to anyone. What we’ve forgotten is that Entertainment Media is there to alter our mood. Many people watch TV for pure sedation . To turn off from the “real world.” The internet is the same. Although infinitely more interactive, who can argue that they use Facebook to tune out the boring regular life around them. Where would we be without this “electronic alcohol.” Apparently in some sort of social media withdrawal. In the words of Abraham Cloud,
“There’s 51 reasons why you can’t do what you want.
You counted them up one day when your TV fell apart.
While your picture of peace was laying in pieces on the floor
You wondered what you’re really living for. ”
Suddenly our hero finds himself in a precarious position somewhere between a sea of sexy young girls in bikinis and another loathsome cubicle day. Smack dab between the joys of youth and the terror of aging. Tempted by the endless summer, tanned skin and ice cold beer but beckoned to the bland normality of “keeping it together.” Ultimately he boils it down to a struggle of Life and Death and decides that he has , “A little living left to do.” Here in the ultimate mid-life crisis drinking song , Abraham Cloud shows his Irish/Country roots. If you’re hoisting a cold one , I dare you not to sing along. Willie Nelson could have easily covered this song , maybe even Merle Haggard. Alex, the ultimate Cloud Archivist has done the perfect video for the perfect country swing summer song. Check it out , but don’t forget to dance. “Raise your glass to me, cause I’ll be quitting soon, ’til then, I got a little livin’ left to do “
