Review: Feed

Posted on December 30, 2018  in Books

FeedFeed by M.T. Anderson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Feed was a really tough read for me. It starts out depressing and steadily gets more depressing. I get that it is supposed to be an extension of smartphones and the “People as products” business model of Facebook and Google, but that is really what is depressing about it. I am also not the type of person who needs a happy ending to a book, but when people die, I like there to be a reason for it, I like there to be meaningful in some way. Violets death did not change anything, it did not even change the main character in any way, he ultimately made the same bad choices at the end of the book that he was making at the beginning. While I found the slang language used by the teenagers to be kind of distracting, I do have to say though the descent into the pit of despair was subtle and well written.

Reddit made me laugh today

Posted on September 14, 2018  in Computers

I am not a huge Reddit person, but I do make a couple of stops there a week to look at the Cyberpunk subreddit and such. It always kills me when someone does something embarrassing. Here is a tip for posting pictures on the internet. If your picture includes portions of the place you live, please make a visual check of the area to make sure your sex toys are out of sight.
