Whom do you want to be

Postby Sprocket » Fri Nov 21, 2008 8:23 pm UTC

Maybe I've got intensely low self-esteem, and maybe I'm a gigantic dreamer...and maybe I'm actually kind of a cynic, because I don't beleive in heroes, but there are people whom I think are kind of ideal pure awesome in many ways, and I want to be these people.

I want to be Wayne Coyne from The Flamming Lips. I watched the documentary "Fearless Freaks" a few years ago, and OH my god is he an amazing dude. He is infinitely creative and endlessly energetic. He gets new ideas constantly and attacks them hard. More over, jesus christ the man is the genius behind The Flaming Lips! I mean, feck! I want to have energy and hope, amazing ideas, and complete faith in my ability to see my projects through to completion.

Who do you want to be?

I want to be Paul Johnstone, and no, there should be no way you know who that is unless you went to high-school with me.

You had to do it. Now I've got that song stuck in my head despite the fact I am listening to music. Muse and pokemon do not mix well.

I want to be someone who knows what they want to be.

Me. Seriously, im quite happy with life at the moment. But there are things i wish i could do that I know i have no chance of doing, and so I envy the people who do them. If that makes any sense.
Playing international rugby for the welsh would be a good start, I would love to be a winger. I had a dream last night that I scored the winning try aginst New Zealand in the game they lost today.

If I were to just be myself but more awesome that would be fantastic, but so far being me hasn't done me much good, so I figure it's time to try the ripe vessel.

I sort of feel like not being me would be like giving up the game halfway through. I can't win if it's not *me* who gets better, so just becoming someone else is both cheating and unhelpful.

Also, most folk I know of who are insanely admirable also work like a bitch, which I know I don't even *want* to do. But all that said, damn, Neil Gaiman is fucking awesome. I'd like to be more like him. Yo Yo Ma, also awesome. Love to be more like him. Jon Stewart? Bloody awesome. There's a long list, y'know?

Seriously, though, ideally, my life is actually working like a MMORPG, and as I gain more experience, I actually get relevant skills and become objectively better as a person. Progression of me, not progression of those awesome guys who I am not. I still hold out hope that when I am 35 I will abruptly become unspeakably cool. :P

I want to be the Doctor from Doctor Who.
Or at the very least have a working TaRDiS...
There was a young man from Trinity,
Who solved the square root of infinity.
While counting the digits,
He was seized by the fidgets,
Dropped science, and took up divinity.

I want to be Gandolf or Darth Vader depending on the level of technology around me. Since neither character fits the level of technology I find myself in right now.....I'm thinking myself only better at networking, by which I mean setting up and administrating computer networking. I have no desire to meet people.
