“My idols are dead and my enemies are in power.” — Paul Darling
The earliest origin for a variation on this quote can be found in Cazuza’s 1988 song of the name, “Ideologia,” where the quote in Portuguese is:
Meus herÃ³is morreram de overdoseâ€¨
Meus inimigos estÃ£o no poder
I think of this quote every time I deal with Internet drama. Right now, I’m dealing with Ted Chin, the photo stealer. Under the guise of IgersSF he has finally found my film instagram accounts and has blocked all of them from his account and the IgersSF account. Nevermind, like the president of the US, he is using that account for nefarious purposes. That doesn’t change the fact that he is still a photo stealer and a douchebag. I thought I could start using Instagram under the radar again, and just focus on film photography – a niche that he neither respects, nor cares about. He’s one of those douchebags that espouses the idea that it’s a waste of money and outdated.
On top of blocking Ted also does another super douchey thing with the IgersSF account where he follows my friends anytime they tag me. IT’S THE BIGGEST DOUCHEBAG SOCIAL MEDIA MOVE EVER. GO AHEAD, BUT I AM GOING DARK SOON AND YOU WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH ME IRL WHERE I CAN NEVER BE BLOCKED.
Anyway, if you’re reading this Ted, or one of your douchebag minions is reading this, you haven’t heard the last of me yet. You think blocking me is gonna do you good like Trump, but both of you are sorely wrong. I join an honored list of people silenced by both you and the Trump.
