A melancholy ballad, played in the park
Two weeks ago, a random person on the Internet found my website and decided to post an entry in his journal bashing me to no end. It was the first time I had ever felt such hatred towards me, even though I'm not sure if the guy was serious about it or not. Although I believe that I could probably cut him up and belittle him more than he did to me, I have decided to not retaliate. He's merely 1 of 6.5 billion people on this planet. Why would I waste my time on this person? There's no reason to. That's why I wasted my time making a video that touches upon this incident instead. If you like wasting time, poor acting, self-mockery, unexpected plot twists, parodies, cliched endings, and an underlying "Brokeback Mountain" theme, then this video is for you!
