I will miss u, 2k8

2k8: you were an extension of 2k7.
While u were not 2k7, u perpetuated what 2k7 brought us
and for that
we thank u/resent u/find u 2 b an inauthentic transition period
where what was once alternative
became
//////////mainstream/inauthentic.

It's kinda weird how there's nothing to blog about between Xmas and the New Year. It's like you really 'start to reflect' on the year behind u & the people in ur life. It makes memes seem cheap and meaningless. Can't wait til my 'daily routine' goes back 2 normal bc I value my sense of alternative normalcy. Kinda weird being at home, feeling a little bit vulnerable.

I've been thinking about a lot of important stuff.
Should I retire from blogging?
Should I make my blog less/more authentic?
Should I ever post an electro mp3 again?
Is my life different now that the new Animal Collective leaked?
What's next for HRO?
Is there n e thing left 2 blog about?
Should I be nervous about Barry Obama taking office?
What about the electro wars?
Are AZNs gonna survive 2k9?
Will n e 1 ever authentically 'get' me?
Will I ever find what I am 'looking for'?
Can I start a Fight Club and blow up credit card buildings?
Will I get drafted after Iran drops a nuclear bomb on Israel?
Will I ever 'recover' from my parents' divorce?
Will I ever become1 with humanity?
Will 2k9 be about anything else other than searching 4 an authentic way of life?
Will an increasing population of inauthentic alternative mainstreamers make my quest more difficult than ever?
If I had 2 go 2 war, would I rather have a set of flaming skulls or pistols?

2k8: u did ur best.
2k8: full of regrets?
2k8: no regrets?
2k8: the year I 'lost my virginity'?
2k8: the year HRO became the only friend who 'gets' me
2k9: a branding experiment
2k9: will I 'fall in love'?
2k9: I will become more/less dependent on the internet
2k9: the year I got 'a smart phone with a touch screen.'

This blog is me.
