All talk, no action

What topics do you like to discuss?

Daily Prompt

I have a lot of topics that I like to discuss but no one to do it with. I write a blog instead. It’s mostly talk and no action, but at least I get my thoughts down. Some things are important to me but don’t seem like that to others. If I had a pet, I would talk to it. Since I don’t, I speak to Mon Ami, my favourite toy monkey. Maybe it’s weird, but I like some weirdness, and I don’t care what people think. Certain things you can’t write in a blog. They are private. I also don’t want people to know about my sad infatuations. Talking or writing is food for the mind, and you need to take it out of your mind one way or another.

I like to discuss music, movies, photography, graphic design, blogging, sport etc. But I don’t talk politics or religion. Or private things. I might say other facts about me, but nothing intimate. It’s no one’s business but my own. For specific topics, I only have opinions and short answers. Other issues I could talk about for hours. A shame; not many people want to know what I have to say. I don’t like talking about things just to talk. What most people are talking about doesn’t interest me. I don’t like networking because there is no soul in them. I like deep conversations. Unfortunately, people who want to do that don’t exist in real life. Without the internet, there would be no one to share thoughts with. It’s a wide, wide world. Blogging is a great way to express yourself when you are an introvert like me. It’s no point explaining what an introvert is to people who don’t want to understand. But that is a topic for another day.

Top 7 songs with the word Nothing in the title

I had nothing to add to this post than having the top 5 songs with the word ‘Nothing’ in the title. These are not in order. It’s songs I’ve listened to.

  1. Nothing Compares to You by Sinéad O’Connor

It’s actually a song by Prince, but she made it famous. There are many other versions of this song.

2. Nothing else matters by Metallica

    I don’t usually listen to the kind of music they have. Especially when I was younger. A rock band can also make ballads like this.

    3. Nothing Less by Duran Duran

    It’s from their latest album ‘Future Past’ which was released in 2021.

    What am I? What am I gonna do tomorrow? Maybe there’ll be nothing less & nothing more.”

    4. Nothing breaks like a Heart by Mark Ronson feat. Miley Cyrus

    I usually don’t listen to Miley, but this song is magic.

    5. Money for Nothing by Dire Straits

    It was the first video shown on the MTV music channel in the 80s. It’s a typical video made then, but it still rocks to this day.

    6. I have nothing by Whitney Houston

    You know this song if you have seen the movie ‘Bodyguard’ with Whitney and Kevin Costner. Her voice was amazing.

    7. When you say nothing at all by Ronan Keating

    The song is another movie song. It’s from ‘Notting Hill’. Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. He used to be part of the Irish boyband ‘Boyzone‘ This was one of his first solo singles. It’s a cover version of a country song.


    Then there are songs like ‘Nothing’s gonna change my love for You’ by Glenn Medeiros and ‘Nothing’s gonna stop us now’ by Starship. But since the titles got the letter ‘S’ in the word, nothing, I didn’t put them on the list.

    This post has no anachronism in it

    This post has no anachronism in it because I’m a modern person. I don’t know if I understood the word right, though. Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t the movies ‘Back to the future’ and ‘Kate and Leopold‘ about that? There are characters in them that come from different times. Anyway, I belong in this time, but I yet don’t belong. Sometimes it feels like I’m the only one with sense. I always thought I was a misfit. I wasn’t a typical teenager. I liked staying at home. I didn’t want to spend time in a youth centre or hang around in shopping centres. I didn’t need to be there. People who don’t like staying home must have a reason for not wanting to be there. I have never had that problem. I have never understood getting drunk. I don’t even like alcohol and not forgetting throwing up. It’s ridiculous to drink so much you can barely walk. It’s embarrassing to watch. Drunk people are boring too. Trying to get a decent conversation with people like that.

    I was born at the right time. At least, that’s what I thought when I was younger. I’m not sure now. Sometimes I wish I could be younger, and sometimes older. I’m lucky to have experienced the world without computers and with computers. Kids today have no idea how things were in the past. Certain things were better then. We weren’t occupied with mobiles. You talked to people face to face. Parents trusted their kids. Even the music was better than it is today. Young people had respect for older people. Now parents are lost on how to raise their kids. Mental issues have increased, and so on. The list is endless.

    The good thing about the present is that things are more accessible. You can buy food without leaving your home. You can use different apps to do many things without queueing anywhere. I’m glad I am the age I am right now. For example, I’m not a novice when it comes to technology. Many seniors have trouble with that. Certain things are complicated for many different ages, like a job search. It has become a sci-fi project where you need to be perfect. People tell you how to answer questions in a job interview; if you answer incorrectly, you won’t get the job. Why are things made so complicated? It’s a competition where only the pretty and lucky ones get anything. Modern technology is one of the reasons to blame for the world’s problems.

    It’s good that I’m not a kid or a teenager. They need to see fake photos on social media, and they compare themselves to that. If you get bullied in school, they will also bully you online. There are a lot of expectations from other people. I don’t envy them. A lot of things seem to end up on social media. When I was young, we didn’t need computers and mobiles to feel alive. We lived for real then, and no one bothered what you did in your private life. There was pressure from other people, but they were people you knew. No stranger told you what to do and what to look like. The internet has made life easier, but it has also given more problems. But you can never go back, so you must live with what you have. You should think about the positive side of it all. That’s how you go by.
