Why Do I Have To Care About Films?

Are you tired of going to the cinema and hearing the intricate scripts that all screenwriters are currently obsessed with? They Came Together combines every romantic comedy you’ve ever seen and breaks down the dialogue to a precise formula. It’s basically the Scary Movie of romcoms! Next time your gal pals can’t decide on the perfect sappy romcom to watch while you guys share a chocolate fondue and have naked pillow fights, pull out this film and save the night!

Looking for a role model?

Obviously, none of us care about stuff. However, sometimes it’s easy for us apathetics to get side-tracked when we go through our life and start caring about the environment, our friends and family etc. Everyone makes mistakes, but we can’t allow our morals to fall to the wayside due to peer pressure! Next time you find yourself helping an elderly person cross the road or doing something ridiculous like showering; stop for a moment and listen to this song.

Ants or Dogs?

Hey apathetics!

Stopped caring about uni work? Start caring about whether you’re a dog or an ant person! I am apparently an ant person, which is ironic because I’m sitting on the ground outside my house while writing and maliciously flicking away ants that are attempting to climb the trunks that are my legs.

Happy quizzing <3!

Why do we care about the ASL bucket challenge?

Who cares about the ice bucket challenge?

Everyone. Or so it seems.

The ASL ice bucket challenge has taken the second world on storm. That meaning, the internet. From the far corners of twitter to the most narcissistic profiles on Facebook, there the ASL ice bucket challenge is, reminding us all that we live in a society where dropping money into the bucket held by the frail old lady with those big kind eyes outside your local Coles, well that just won’t cut it anymore. Now, to show that you really care about the world around you, you have to dump a bucket of ice on your head.

I’m not writing this to try and debate the benefits of the ice bucket challenge. Statistics have clearly shown it’s working. People have shared more than 1.2 million videos on Facebook between June 1 and August 13 and mentioned the phenomenon more than 2.2 million times on Twitter since July 29, according to those sites. Donations to the ASL Association have spiked. The association said it had received $13.3 million in donations since July 29, compared with $1.7 million during the same period last year. It said there were about 260,000 new donors.

So instead of quoting articles with fake statistics and condemning the practice, I simply want to ask this. Why is something like the ice bucket challenge what we need to actually make us care about things? And do we care about the cause, or do we care about the spectacle?

1 reason why we hate Buzzfeed

Lists take up my newsfeed on Facebook, the search results from Google and even articles and videos when people explain why they hate lists. I hate them just as much as you do, so I’m not going to list the reasons I hate Buzzfeed (I’m too apathetic), I’ll just let someone more intelligent and less-Gen-Y do it for me.

We encourage you to defy our blog’s ethics and list reasons why you agree or disagree with him.

The Top Eight Things On The Internet We Dont Care About

We hear you world. Posts and ‘social engagement’ happen in the form of lists and phrases like ‘you’ll never guess what happens next’. This is how you make people care, like, CLICK.

Well we’ve had enough. We’re sick of our attention being abused and manipulated for profit. And most of all, we ‘re sick of being made to care about everyone’s causeless content that distracts us from the important things in life.

Here’s out top ten edit on what we just don’t give a damn about. ‘Number 3 is a clincher!!’

8) Kim Kardashian

She’s rich and hot and married to a rapper but we’re just not getting it. Firstly, when was the last time anyone heard her speak? And second, Kim and Kanye just seem like the B grade version of Beyonce and Jay Z.

Side note: Why do all Lebanese girls think they look like her?

7) Your model Facebook page

You are a model when a brand pays you money to represent them. Promotional staff activities do not count and ‘photo shoots’ with your awkward friend that’s kind of in love with you DEFINATLEY don’t’. Stop asking me to like your ‘public figure’ page. I have enough cat memes also vying for my attention.

6) Were you are DJing this weekend

 We’ve never heard of that club and you’re on at 7pm and I don’t want $5 wet pussy shots. At 7pm, I plan to be drinking wine at a real venue with my real friends, not watching you DJ, kind sir who I don’t remember friend request approving.

5) Make money from home ads

 These aren’t actually real.

4) Horrible shark attack stories

Who is sending in photos of their loved ones moments before their death? And who is perpetuating grief as a form of entertainment? Our deepest condolences for shark attack victims and their families. We wont share your grief for engagement with our website about travel insurance.

3) New ways to get fit/ skinny

Teas, smoothies, ten day ‘body transformations’…there are two things that make you look like an underwear model in this world and they are diet and exercise. You know this. Don’t click on the article, it is bordered with six banner adds for Mercedes.

 2) The naked pictures of Jennifer Laurence and co

First of all Jennifer Laurance (and related) were  banging hot before the naked photos, so stop talking about it incessantly. This isn’t new. Second they’re also human beings and if you’re trolling the internet for these photos you’re no better than a twelve year old boy with a peep hole into a woman’s change room.

 1) The ASL ice bucket challenge

 *Cue roar of outrage* We’re not throwing fake facts at you about its success rate, we’re just disturbed by the concept. Call us old fashioned but what happened to selfless charity that engaged people without a novel, narcistic entertainment factor?

 Do yourself a favor today, click on what entertains you, not what monetizes you.
