For those of you looking for a gardening page, I’m sorry to surprise you. I am not a gardener, I don’t care about tulips or carrots planting, I am a subversive human, I am what you could call a troll, I am a specified organism that works to target a single item and linger in the soil for years, continually targeting that ideal, that object, that desire for life, until I move on to the next. I am much like a mycoherbicide, which is why I took the name for my own blog page. I am a hacker who sits in a dark room, staring at a glowing screen, and tackles some of the biggest companies in the world. At least in my own mind. You see, I’m just a guy, who really loves shows based on that one person who has the talent and capability to take down entire establishments.
Whether it’s on television, in the movies, I have always related to these characters, always wanted to be one myself. One who could monologue about all the ways that society is crashing down around us, how big corporations are ruining the world and commerce, and whatever else they target. I want to be that one outlier who is suspected by no one. Yet, instead, I’m the one on the couch, with the popcorn who enjoys watching, and wishing I could be more like that. Who had a life more interesting than the one I have. But I suppose that’s what the internet is for.
This blog gives me the means to talk about some of the things that I have on my own mind, to transform myself into someone else, someone heroic, someone like I see in my head and on the screen. That I could be the hero of my own made up story, taking on the giant machine by myself, just my skills and my keyboard in the darkest recesses of the internet. After all, what kind of angst filled teenager turned boring adult wouldn’t think that kind of life is awesome? You become the thorn in the side of the man just by being who you are.
I don’t know if many others out there think the way I do when it comes to these kinds of things, but I would like to think that I’m not the only one. Recently I started watching a show that is based solely off that concept, and I have to say, it has changed the entire way that I look at the world around me. Now of course, I’m not going to go out and try to topple some major corporate interest, but I do look around at the world with a different view, I don’t know how to explain it, but I feel like a different person walking in my own skin. Perhaps I could be getting too deep into this show, but perhaps something has finally awakened, allowing me to see things in a different light.
