My Dislikes

by Jeph Johnson

 

I would not call them hard limits but a shitload of stuff seemingly everyone else is really into I do not seem to find interest in:

 

  • I do not like most fantasy, action, anime, horror, superhero, war and sci-fi movies, and I have been punished for this by having an uncanny knack for having catastrophic computer and logistical problems with tech items.
  •  
  • I don't care for British humor like Monty Python, or British sci-fi like Dr. Who.
  •  
  • I despise Christianity. Hell, I despise religion!
  •  
  • I don't like the two party political system. My brand of political theory combines the social personal liberty of Libertarianism and the communal safety net of Socialism. Let people do what they want, except make more money than they could ever need! And, yes, I would indeed be a good person to decide how much everyone needs! Think Green Party (without the slut shaming) or Bernie Sanders' brand of Democratic Socialism.
  •  
  • Expensive name brands actually inspire me to look elsewhere.
  •  
  • Radiohead I just don't get. Thank goodness I get other sorts of head.
  •  
  • I am not fond of travelling. I have a lot of anxiety and am uncomfortable in environments I am unfamiliar with.
  •  
  • I don't enjoy or get the fascination of most video games. This is likely because they generally follow in the footsteps of the genres of movies I don't like. Now Madden was fun, but too time consuming. If video games patterned my tastes in movies (comedy, romance, documentaries, porn or quirky indies) I might be more inclined to participate.
  •  
  • I love music, but seldom find a rap song or opera I like. I especially hate gospel choirs and R&B derived from that style (think Aretha Franklin). I do not think this is due to my dislike of Christianity, for I was not fond of this genre when I was a Christian.
  •  
  • It isn't that I dislike books (unless it is a reference book), but find movies, documentaries and seminars are much easier for me to digest.
  •  
  • I like sports, but NASCAR bores me and it is tough for me to get enthused with hockey, lacrosse or soccer.
  •  
  • Bondage does not interest me insomuch as it just seems to be a delay or interruption from much more exciting kinky exploits. I also don't have the patience for it.
  •  
  • It's not that I dislike kids and pets, I just love the freedom to do stuff way more (and I'm allergic to cats)!
  •  
  • I don't get the obsession audiophiles have with vinyl. It has a "warmer" sound? Ok. It also has clicks and pops and is hard to store and ship. Gimme compact discs and MP3s over vinyl!
  •  
  • In addition to disliking name brands, I also have a diversion to impractical car fashion accessories. Give me instead a practical working vehicle!
  •  
  • Smoking cigarettes.
  •  
  • Drinking, drugs and getting "shitfaced".

WINGS OF LIBERTY!

WINGS OF LIBERTY!

 

Softly but gently surges my mind,

Into the un-riddled world of emotion;

Sets me gracefully with uncontrollable notion,

Afar, it drifts to my dreamy land of ecstasy!

 

Infancy made me quite sober and mild; though

I got groomed by, the compassionate hands of care!

Childhood swung me into the enviable wheel of motion,

And I could toddle around within my physical boundaries.

 

Boyhood gave me the unfurling freedom of thoughts,

But couldn’t ponder and fly into my infinite world of dreams;

Manhood provided me the wings of liberty that I could stretch; but

I just flew away breaking all moral shackles to reach unseen lands.

 

What I couldn’t experience in childhood and boyhood,

As a grown up man, I came to be aware of; but got spilled over.

A heavily laden life-package with quite a few likes but with too many dislikes;

What unfolds and emerges in mind after all this is; life’s last riddle of life after death

Author's Notes/Comments: 

We are born without our knowledge and the different stages of life make us do different things, knowingly or unknowingly (Birth, infancy, childhood, boyhood, manhood, dreams, likes, dislikes, mistakes etc.) and what worries man at the end is the the worry of life after death.
