So Pokemon Go, I’m not biased against the game or it’s players but I’m not part of the trend & here’s why.
……….Fucking cellphones. That’s it, fuck cellphones, fuck the NSA spying, we’ve become a cellphone reliant culture & it’s sickening.
Alright alright alright, I’ll elaborate here. Like I said, nothing against the people playing the game or the game itself, but fuck, I have such a love/hate relationship with technology. While I sit in my sister’s room typing this & my stories on Microsoft word & taking advantage of Google to help me around the corners of info or spelling, I don’t see the need to buy a smartphone & replacing said smartphone when a new one comes out. I ‘adopted’ (We’ll leave it at that) my older sister’s out of service smartphone & being a cellphone from 2011 or 2012, some apps work fine like the YouTube app & the Comixology app. I tried to download Pokemon Go & being a ‘ancient as your grandma’s ovaries’ cellphone the app is incompatible & the cellphone is (so it claims) up to date. So I can’t play Pokemon Go on this cellphone with no service, but I would have played with it just to keep me occupied & see what the kids are digging.
So what to do, buy a new cellphone? I don’t want to deal with fucking contracts, one second you’re holding that dank ass phone that can see through clothes, the next second AT&T or T-Mobile is charging you for the small shit because contracts are written so vaguely, they may as well would be saying “We’re going to kidnap you to partake in an experiment where we stitch your mouth onto another person’s butthole.” Not wanting to deal with contracts, this last resort for people who need to talk on the go, PREPAID PHONES!!!! The last cellphone I had was a prepaid Razor Motorolla flip phone by TracFone & I’ll tell ya, TracFone was SHIT from a ass’s (ass = DONKEH!) gaping ass!! They charge you for listening in on dropped messages, they charged you to access the phone store, they charged you to read texts & send text, charged for customer service & charged 20 dollars for 60 minutes. Fuck TracFone, I hope their CEO got hit by a Thomas the Tank Engine toy train!!
Do prepaid phones charge for using the internet? Does the internet work if you’re outside the wifi spot? Two questions I’ve been looking for when researching on a cellphone. Then it just dawned on me, should I even spend cash on a cellphone service? I got no close friends (Most my maid comrades are on the innernet!), who the hell am I going to talk to? Why do I really need a cellphone besides trying out some new apps? My two sisters have cellphones & I only get out to work or with parents who have cellphones. So to me my problems are as repeated, Cellphones are picky (especially Apple & Android sucks), they cost too damn much (& contracts are fucking evil), everyone has one (Not really providing a service) & would it be really worth it in the long run? I’m not opening my wallet for a new cellphone, despite feeling left out. That’s the thing with Pokemon, I’ve always been left out when it comes to the video games. By the time I got my first copy of Pokemon Yellow, everyone was playing Pokemon Sapphire & Ruby. This is yet another depressing rehash of my childhood. Will the trend even last? I kinda say no, because people are quick to change, especially in this fucking high speed (Move & don’t stop to smell the roses, then tweet rant about not smelling the roses & blaming cis-males for it) culture we live in, but also there’s so much untapped potential to keep Pokemon ripe, especially knowing there’s a wide assortment of Pokemon to catch & everyone’s hooked, kids & adults are hooked & so is the mainstream.
Even then, despite the praise of getting kids out & having them interact with other people, there’s always the stupid people that do stupid shit & of course the media is having a rodeo reporting the stupid people doing stupid shit because they’re stupid & we got a group of PC parents who decide it’s dangerous & they want to ban it because they’re too stupid to raise their stupid children who should have had a visit to the coat hanger doctor! Stupid people ruin shit & the mainstream media loves to paint the pictures they want everyone to see! There shouldn’t be a website or a blog telling people how to play an AR Game safely, that should be common knowledge!!!!
Of course the grown ass adults aren’t gonna get it, they’re acting the same way they did back in 1998 when the original Pokemon made it to the U.S.
“What’s a Pokemon?” says the generation that was raised off of both ‘Howdy Doody’ (That creepy as fuck vantrilaquist doll), Bozo The Clown (Mass murdering rape clown) & The Snorks (I have no idea what a Snork is). They’re pocket mosnters, yet they too are too stupid to understand what a pocket monster is. This is why we can’t have imaginative things anymore. Oh & can’t forget the “Them JAPS are controlling our youth!!” group.
1957 called, they don’t want their Xenophobia back, toss it in with the 80’s, he won’t mind.
Old people don’t get us young people, man. Well, some do & they took enough drugs in their youth to know a Tellitubbie is not a being or a representation of a species, but a way of viewing a species. The sun with the baby’s face is a metaphor for life incarnate!!!!!!
To end it, I’m happy to see people of all backgrounds uniting under a new common interest, despite not being part of it & wishing it was another card game. Seriously, it‘s been hella long since we had a card game that just hit big. I’m seeing a lot of social gatherings being set up by online friends & it’s pretty dank man. On my way to work I saw a group of kids at a park near a suburb as they chatted (Face to face talking) near the swing set. That’s something I haven’t seen in a damn long time. Just hope those gathering’s don’t turn to meat gridners or hope no one wakes up missing a kidney. Keep it PG & maybe raise it to an R when the kids are gone.
To all the players, don’t let the fucking assholes cramp your enjoyment. I’ve read a lot of political articles saying how they’re ‘Brainwashing’ people with this app. I gotta call bullshit. Sometimes us people gotta escape for a while before evaluating the real world. I tell you, these past days I’ve been fucking depressed mostly due to the real world bullshit that’s just happened recently (Some truck driver ran over a bunch of people in a celebration, the whole Donald Trump popularity) & this is something to take you out while listening to some music. Don’t let my predicament cramp your fun, also don’t let the fucking ‘I’m too mature for that’ cramp your fun either. I heard the same shit in middle school when I asked ‘friends’ about the new upcoming video games. They’d scoff & reply with “I don’t play video games anymore.” Well laaaaaa ddeeeeeee fucking daaaaa!! Good for you, you want a Russian cookie you hipster commie? And guess what, those folks grew up to be unimaginative idiots living a milktosed life acting happy. Keep on signing that check buddy boy & playing golf with the shit inlaws, I’ll be running over people in GTA.
It’s cool that the concept of an AR game is done perfectly & everyone is into it, but don’t let it get to your head & sadly there are too many stupid people doing stupid shit because they’re stupid. Dude left his job to be a professional Pokemon Go player……..I’m sure we’re all making that face Tommy Lee Jones always makes, especially in those Japanese commercials he’s been in with the white shiba inu.
Stupid people need to stop……just stop.
