Ben Weasel, once again, finds the right words.
I hate it.
I hate the site design, which looks like something you might expect from a cat-lover\’s Geocities page circa 1996.
I hate that almost half the profiles I visit (in a feeble attempt to feel like I\’m not adding total strangers as friends) crash my browser because yet another pitiful goof had to load up his page with stupid band and celebrity photos and videos that he mistakenly thinks make him look more interesting than he is.
I hate that so many of my friends, who ought to know better, have spent hours carefully crafting lists of their favorite movies and books and music, as if anybody does or ought to care that they hold John Fante, Fassbinder or the Pixies in high esteem.
I hate, most of all, that I\’m a part of it.
