Actually, I guess the technical term is, "yo duuuude."
Well maybe those days are over, but there's one thing for sure - Joi will have a drink - again. Maybe on New Year's Eve - maybe 20 years from now - but once an addict, always an addict. I mean that in a nice way.
We can try and intellectualize our way out of our problems, manipulating our actions and behavior to suit our health - mental, physcial or economic - but you'll always go back to being - just you.
I would beg to differ on this point Marc. Since I announced that I would stop drinking
, I've been contacted by a lot of people who have chosen to stop drinking and that was the end of that. I realize that it's quite difficult and you can't go back to NOT being addicted, but that doesn't mean you have to end up drinking again or that you don't have a choice.
Marc CanterSo as Joi dumbs down his persona, going for only the lowest denominator, he'll still pick his battles, stand his ground and make his point on all the right issues. But he'll be doing that less and less.
I'm not sure I'd use the phrase "dumb down"... I'm not dumbing myself down for my blog, just performing for a more public audience. It's not about "smart/dumb". In fact, I'd suggest that I'm having to be a lot smarter in some ways and am filtering crap that only my close friends would let me get a way with.
Anyway, I know you didn't mean any disrespect Marc. I just want to clarify my position on these two points.
