I don't have to either. I just find that style of excessive despair and hand wringing ("I don't even enjoy the good films, woe is me") kind of tedious. It's like the guy suffers from a complete humour bypass. I'm not saying that people have to only have to talk about stuff that they enjoy all the time. I think he just might have forgotten that when culture is ridiculous, it's ripe for poking fun at.I like that guy (in small doses), I find him more interesting than the "Let's be positive, I swear to God i'm still young" guy.
I don't personally share the article's negativity nor it's despair but thankfully I don't have to relate to something to find it interesting. I like the writing; it's a good polemic against the madness of the world.
I also found the part where he was talking about the Irishman ("I'm going to tell Martin Scorsese what his own film was actually about") to put it mildly fucking ridiculous and exhibiting a huge lack of self awareness.
I would agree with him about Social Media, it's fucking horrible. Says man on internet board.
