Blogger's Block: Brainwave Desperately Needed

If you’ve noticed, I’m having a drought of posts that are, well, coherent. My posts are either half-baked attempts to be funny or just plain lame. I’m talking lameness up to the  point of being retarded. Yes, I’m always bragging that this here blog is “Your Daily Dose of Retard“, but you wouldn’t be reading REALLY retarded blogs, won’t you?

Wait, don’t answer that question. I honestly don’t know what I’ll do if you answer with “Why yes, I love to read REALLY retarded blogs. In fact, your blog is a great example.”

I don’t think I should be posting right now, because I know I’m just posting more lameness than what is legally allowed, but I just have to post this for sanity’s sake.

Thing is, I’ve been suffering from a bad case of Blogger’s Block lately. As in the “make you stop in the middle of writing and hate yourself and your ancestors for five generations straight for your worthless writing skills” type. I’ve been trying real hard to rack my brains for a really good topic, but the best I could come up with is that entry on Karaoke. And that painfully unfunny “I’m Back/HAX0R” post.

And don’t you tell me that it’s just a blog, and that I’ll get over it. You see, according to the picture of the creepy smiling guy on the right, Teh Internets is Serious Business. Indeed.

But really, if my writing is the only one that’s affected, I wouldn’t be too worried. But somehow my motor & comprehension skills all seem to have been flushed down the toilet. I’d often hear things wrong, and it has caused profound grief to those at the other end of the conversation:

FRIEND: Dude, it’s my birthday this Tuesday.
ME: Uh-huh.
FRIEND: The whole gang’s gonna be there, and…
ME: Hey, look!
FRIEND: …what?
ME: A piece of bread!
FRIEND: So?
ME: It’s a piece of bread! You don’t find that very often.
FRIEND: What in blazes are you talking about?!
ME: Bread is delicious!
FRIEND: Were you even listening to what I’ve been saying the last hour?
ME: Weren’t we talking about the societal and/or political implications of Frank Miller’s Batman stories from “The Dark Knight Returns” up until the upcoming “Holy Terror, Batman!”? And bread, too.
FRIEND: FRANK WHO? The implications of WHAT? And what the hell is with the bread?
ME: AND YOU TELL ME I’M THE ONE WHO’S NOT LISTENING!
FRIEND: …
ME: What?!
FRIEND: Dude, you seriously need to have your brain checked.

And as for my motor skills, I can live with myself for tripping over a rock or slipping on a wet floor. I’m a regular klutz, so those things don’t really bother me, not even in public. But tripping over my own shoelaces, while sitting… how do I live that down?!

I’ve been doing a little thinking how the hell did this happen to me, and this is what I found out:

  • I’m really dense. Seriously.
  • I’m addicted to blogging.
  • I’m spending too much time online and I don’t know what real life is.
  • Ironically, I haven’t been reading Uncyclopedia and Encyclopedia Dramatica lately, hence I ran out of ideas.
  • In case my boss reads this, I’m also working. Very hard. Really. Yessir, I don’t have time to blog!
  • Nothing funny has happened to me.
  • I ran out of jokes.
  • My neighbor’s Karaoke Party has fried my brain. Literally.

So far, the only plausible reason for my brain conking out is the Karaoke incident.

Oh, well, I have to empty my mind for a while and maybe I’ll get a really good idea one of these days.


Have you had Blogger’s Block? How do you deal with it? Can we switch brains? Got something to say? Just comment away!!!

  1. Don't worry. You'll be okay. Di ka pa mamamatay. xD

    Just spend some time away from the computer or teh internet for a few days. LOL. Read a good book or watch a movie. Do something er, fun. Or retarded. ~_~

  2. ie

    don't worry ade, that's normal. just chill. i'm sure you'll find something funny to write about. probably singing with your neighbors wouldn't hurt (that much) either. ha ha. :]

  3. I’m spending too much time online and I don’t know what real life is.

    Yeah.. that's my exactly my situation. It's as if nothing else matters more.

    I find that I tend to have the urge to blog on the way home from work.. like when I reflect about what happened that day along the bus journey. But since I don't have a computer to blog.. I make notes about my day.. so that when I'm back home with the computer, I'll remember what I wanted to blog about.

    And most of the time, I guess we need inspirations. When we read a new book, face some new experience or something, then you'll have the urge to write/blog about it.

    [Comment ID #738 Will Be Quoted Here]

    They'll be blogging about ME, that's for sure.

    [Comment ID #739 Will Be Quoted Here]

    Exactly. I now have a new aricle ready. Just wait for it. 😉

  5. When I get "blogger's block", I take a deap breath. Listen to good music and watch DVD. 😉

    Parang being an artist din yan eh. You need to let go for a while, relax, feel everything around you and boom! The inspiration comes in. 😉

  6. dre, kaya mo yan! ang golden rule dun sa karaoke party, join ka lang. dami mong pwedeng i-blog dun. pustahan tayo…

  7. hah! you're complaining about that karaoke…wait till you live in Tondo…that thing happens every night up to the wee hours of the morning 😛

    hmm, tripping over your own shoelaces while sitting…well i guess there's a first time for everything hehe…

  8. I suffer from that too. If your blog is lame, mine's worse.

  9. parang virus yan dre! ilan na din nasalubong ko na ganyan din…a little rest might be helpful!

  10. You’re not alone.. maski naman ako eh. Buti ka pa nga eh may sense magsulat.. yung blog ko, parang open diary ko na to eh although I have my own private diary na mas detailed ang pagkasulat. Di lahat sa blog sinusulat ko eh (of course I have my own private life)…

    Yung sa karaoke incident…may kumanta ba ng “My Way” pag may kumanta maghanda ka na lang ng bato, ibato mo sa kapitbahay mo!

  11. yen

    init lang ng katawan yan iligo m lang yan!!!

    wg m pilitin kng tlgang walang lumalabas na idea sa utak mo.. bka kelangn m ng magkaron ng life lolo.. aside from blogging noh!!!

  12. julsitos

    i meant stalker… not blogger… sige nga, post her number on your blog…hawhawhawhaw

  13. oh wow. all your entries are way funnier than jessica zafra. i guess all those excess damaged brain cells must have short-circuited the entire system. hehehehe… more updates on your blogger. wait, i dare you to post her number!!!!

  14. rob

    As in the “make you stop in the middle of writing and hate yourself and your ancestors for five generations straight for your worthless writing skills” type.

    i almost always have that kind of thinking. the thing with me is i don't stop. i just post away regardless of whatever's stopping me. just look at my posts. they're just my own brand of rubbish.

    i do wish you survive it. maybe you need a break or something. how about a vacation? that way, you could also get away from your neighbors. 😉

  15. maybe you're just imagining that you have blogger's block due to the summer heat. i mean this entry is still a fun read although not as entertaining as The Return of the Stalker. hehehe 😉

  16. apparently i'm not the only one whose brains have been fried by the intense summer heat. my recent post also carries the same theme, albeit it's more for the drama queens. yours is more refreshing. maybe having a tiny bean for brains produces such interesting posts. ten cheers to blogger's block!

  17. Jee

    Recent studies show that eating too many pasta will cause blogger's block *_*

  18. Holy chicken shit! Si Lucky may blog! Eeeeeee! [faints]

    E si Heart Evangelista meron kaya?! Tell me if there's one so I can just shoot myself on the temple!

  19. that's life… blogging is an art and, thoughts will not come on a regular basis. if you're already desperate and you want to get more traffic, i would suggest making yourself KNOWN, like lucky manzano (http://luckymanzano.blogspot.com) who writes the lamest posts and yet, he has a gang of obsessed dimwitted readers and visitors :b yeepeee!!!! si lucky may blog!!!

  20. For someone who has a writer's block that was a good entry. 😛 You're not alone. I don't know real life either. It's more fun here in the cyberworld anyway. I could sift through websites to find intersting stuff. I cannot do that in real life.

  21. dude you complain about having a blogger's block and here you are with a lengthy (and funny) post. who are you kidding? want to see lame? you visit my blog. oh, you do that pala. baka naman nahawa ka na sa akin? 😛

  22. stop thinking too much kase. 😀

  23. [Comment ID #715 Will Be Quoted Here]now that is a real inspiration!

    ade, you'd be back to normal once you find out you're really a retard…'jest kidding!

  24. D…dude, y-you're not alone!

    Seriously the terrible heat of the summer sun might be causing this mental drought that we're having right now. Even the TMB guys are having the same dillemma remember?

    Worse, my porn collection is missing! Where in this damn world am I gonna draw inspiration from?!
