buying a new phone. feeling ‘depressed’. i think.

Hey y’ulle. Feeling a little weirded out. Think I’ve lost touch with how I really feel. When I feel something, I’m not sure I’m feeling it because of something inside me, or whether I am being influenced by external factors, such as a viral online marketing campaign. Doesn’t thousands of people singing a Beatles’ song all together make you feel depressed? The following video is NOT for sensitive viewers.


I’m about to buy a new phone, but when I contemplate my future holding an iPhone / BlackBerry / HTC, I don’t feel thrilled and elated, like I should. I feel empty and meaningless, like I’m just a small part of one massive augmented reality campaign brought to you buy KingSaatchilvyCB, sponsored by ExclusiveWorthBookwords.

The cycle of life (you might remember this from elementary school biology).

Wouldn’t really be surprised if ‘life as we know it’ is one big augmented reality campaign, brought to you by the Apple superbrand.

Guess the trick is to break out of ‘modern day emotional constraints’ by doing something meaningful, like going for a hike up the mountain, or ‘picking up the phone’ and talking to someone.  Maybe there are even more meaningful things to be done, like ‘imagining rocket-powered unicorns’ or ‘imagining water-melon boats’. I don’t really get this whole ‘imagining’ thing tho. Will maybe get my teenage brother to make a rocket-powered unicorn app for facebook for my phone, or something.

How wonderful life could be.

Truly spiffy.

How am I supposed to tell whether I really feel something or not?
Should I post how I feel in my SpaceBook status so as to get sympathy from those of my friends who are drawn to a victim? Or should I conceptualise an integrated campaign on twitter that will ‘generate buzz’ about user-generated emotions?


Wish I could upload emotions and share them with my friends. Not sure my online friends ‘get’ emotions though. Guess if my emotions fell into one of the following categories it would be fine: 1) Sober or 2) Wasted.

Will I really not feel better if I buy a phone that is more expensive than I can afford? Think I must be ‘depressed’. Guess I have identified an ’emotional niche’ that can be exploited for capital gains. Will open up my depression as a media space for ads to buy as soon as I can get out of bed. Will use the revenue I generate to buy my new phone. Hope I will be able to appreciate my new phone now that I’ve actually had to work for something in my life.

i’m trying to work through my issues with rejection at the moment. two jobs that i’ve been working on just got rejected by a client – for ‘circumstantial reasons’. you know, client had nothing against the ideas, but the one was a mission to produce and the other one was ‘too clever for the target audience’. that’s like breaking up with someone and telling them ‘you’re too good for my love. you deserve someone better’.

Apparently writing poetry can help alleviate feelings of isolation and depression. Writing poetry can also make you seem quite deep and connected to the truth of the human condition, which will translate into a vague sense of authenticity when people talk to you, which they will trust. People will say things behind your back like, I like that girl. She seems real.

now deep down i know that fear of rejection comes from low self esteem and feeling like i’m not worthy of love. does anyone know of any shortcuts / quick fixes to make yourself feel better about yourself?like get an art director to take pics of me and then photoshop them and upload them onto my Facebook so my frendz comment about how hot i am? or get a fish eye lens Lomo and take pics of myself and scan and upload them onto my Myspace so my frendz comment on how hot i am? maybe i should use my digicam to take pics of myself and upload them onto my Flickr so my frendz comment on how hot i am?

OMG LOL I look so bad here, was having the WoRsT hair day evaaar! Plus Ive put on sooo much weight you guys. Please promise me you WONT let me eat any more KFC Twisters, OK??! OMG I feel so fat.

***does anyone know of any other quick fixes for self-esteem issues?*** i have heard drinking alcohol helps, as does having sex with strangers. the problem with alcohol is that what you drink makes such a big statement about who you are and i’m not sure i can make big decisions while i’m low like this. and i think sex with strangers would be really awkward without alcohol.

rejection hurts y’ulle. you don’t know what it’s like being judged on the physical appearance of your ideas everyday. copywriting seems so glamourous but it can seriously damage you if you don’t have a tough skin.

also found on Notcot. Subzero is less than life. to quote the packaging of this mantlepiece masterpiece:

subzero came from a look at the psychology of populations. and well, myself….seemingly conscious, educated and caring, but completely paralyzed by the understanding of a lawless administration, various nations at war, a planet reaching boiling point, and it all seems out of control. Subzero does nothing; Less Than Nothing. He is depressed from his incapacity to affect anything. In the end it’s a call to arms really but for now he remains motionless, frustrated, mad, and simply bummed out.”
