‘Content’ is trash

I have a problem with the word ‘content’. It seems to be synonymous with trash, wasting time, filling your mind with useless info. Even if its useful, is it more useful than not having it?

People have been calling themselves content creators, this is what I’m trying to do with this site. Maybe all the great writers, musicians film directors were all content creators too – but I still hate the term.

I hate it because it piles together procrastination material like ‘how many mentos will fit in my ass?’ with high art like Tupac’s Me Against the World. It alarms me to everything being a product for my consumption, and by extension – all a giant waste of time.

What if you got to the end of your life and they showed you a pie chart of all the ways you’ve spent your time. A big chunk of that would entertainment / content, and I’m trying to keep mine low. So content, ew, yuck.
