I have no idea what I am doing with this site.
I bought the domain name because there was a sale, and since I already was purchasing one for my wife’s business I thought… “Hmm this might be fun, so I made up the name “Bastard in Texas” saw that it was available, and went for it.
A few months later, I decided to start an internet radio station, and used the Call Letters “BITX” so I could use the site as a home base for it. That went fine for a bit, until June or July of 2019 when the station stopped for various reasons, and the site sat unmanned for months on end,
Then the new year hits and I am scrolling through social media, talking to my wife about various things and projects and it hits me…
I have no vision for this year. I have no outright projects I am working on, I am not being creative. It’s odd, for someone like me, who always has something up their sleeve. Soon, the option to renew this site will come up, and I have to ask myself if I want to keep this domain. The domain that hasn’t lived up to it’s potential through no fault of it’s own.
It would be easy I suppose, to just let the site go, to not pick up a project, to just let things rest and die, but to quote the best Rocky movie “I still got stuff in the basement”. So I decide to just blog and fix this site, see where it takes me.
I dunno. There’s a lot of shit going on and it bugs me I guess. Social Media is just an echo chamber for trolls and edgelords, social justice warriors and baby boomers who used to be hippies but are now closet racists.
There is a tribal mentality that everyone seems to have, and you either join and sign up to all their beliefs or get cast out, then those tribes fight among each other. There is no middle ground anymore. Antiheroes are the new heroes. Heroes have more dirt on them than the bad guys, and the “bad guys” are just the people who lost and didn’t get to write their version of history.
It’s an unending cycle.
And me, I am just some dude who hates authority in any form. Society drags itself to the lowest common denominator and we are OK with being bamboozled and taken for a ride as long as we don’t have to think about it.
I am the guy who roots for the underdog. I want the big bad wolf to be tried by a fair jury. I want someone to watch the watchmen and I want someone to fact check news….
I am the antagonist in your news feed. I didn’t join your tribe or their tribe. I am not the only one either, there are plenty of us who live that life. Vilified by the world, we’re just a bunch of bastards.
So I guess if you had to ask, that’s what I’ll be updating about. I’ll have to make major changes to the site since it still reflects the radio station, but no one has visited it in awhile, so if you are looking at this in the first few months of 2020, I apologize. I guess I will just write and update, and see what happens. An anti-lifestyle blog can be pretty liberating.
