The Power of Crap

Ok so this is going to be a very passionate and straight forward blog.

I make crap. I give it away. I don’t ask for anything in return. I especially don’t ask for you all to put me on a pedestal or treat me any differently than you do anyone else. I don’t like at least 50% of the people in OpenSim and I accept that they don’t like me either.

I am not your scapegoat. You can’t give me the power that some seem to just because my name is Linda Kellie. Be realistic. I am a sad excuse for a human actually. I am overweight and old and as you can see…. I don’t think very highly of myself. I have mental health issues. I don’t even hide my “crazy” well. That’s how much I suck. So open your eyes and see me the way I see me. Don’t use the words that I write as an excuse to do or not do anything. You have your own mind. Use it!

I’m going to blog.  I am going to write in G+ and I’m going to state my opinion. And you can be with me or against me…. I really don’t care. I don’t ask anyone to hold back on their opinion. In fact I encourage everyone to speak openly about what their views are. That’s how things in life keep their balance.

People think that I use my “power” and my “voice” to be destructive or to sway people. What they don’t get is that I have no power. None except what they give me. My voice is what I write. They don’t have to even read it.

I make crap. I make a lot of crap. That’s my claim to fame! And it’s stupid. It’s crap. It’s not even real crap. And that “fake crap” somehow has given me some sort of pretend power. I can’t have an opinion like anyone else and state it because it’s “OMG Linda Kellie just posted….. blah blah blah”.

I don’t care what you think. Stop caring about what I think. I’m a nobody and a somebody just the same as you. If you ask anyone that likes me but isn’t one of my few close friends they will say “She’s nice” and if you ask them why they think that they will say “Because she makes this stuff and gives it away free”. But that’s not what “nice” is. And I am not nice. OK, I am nice to those who have earned my trust and love. But …… I’m not generally nice. And just because I make crap and give it away is no reason for you to like me. That’s actually rather insane (and I thought i was the crazy one)

And most of my haters hate me because they put too much value on my words and give me too much power. They see my words as having strength and I am saying things they don’t like. They think I am “mean”. But stating my opinion isn’t “mean”. And they give me the power. I don’t take the power. I don’t pretend to be some great power vessel of wisdom. Why are they even listening to me…. they hate me. Why does anything I say matter to them? 

It matters because I make Crap and they think that crap gives me power.

So let me make this very very clear………….  CRAP IS NOT POWER! It’s simply “crap”

And it’s really ok to dislike me or even hate me and still like my crap. I’m fine with that.

    And as for your “I don’t think very highly of myself.” that’s the BPD cuz i’m the same way.
    Even though i personally dont like some of your cloths because im more into darker goth stuff, i still think your a wonderful person LK. I do however love your furnitures.

    Loved this crappy blog Linda! Personally I think you make great crap! (that sounds a little odd…… moving on)…… I do also believe you are a nice person. Maybe you don’t deal well with “not nice” people and smack them in the face to defend the one they are bullying, but that isn’t because you are not a nice person – it is because you ARE a nice person and you stand up for what you see as foul play (and tbh in OS there is a lot of that going on). If people treat you well, you are the kindest person. You go out of your way to help people.
    Sure, its not always advisable to get on your bad side 😛 (I know, I’ve been there and you KNOW I am as stubborn as you!)
    Bottom line is, I have a high regard for you – not because of the free “crap” you make (although I love to see your new creations and do not think they are crap at all) but because in you I have found the truest friend I have ever had.

      i second what jess said.
      Also Linda remember your a inspiration to others like me to make free crap for others.
      If it wasn’t for your free stuff from the past and present, there wouldnt be alot of free stuff in opensim from others too.
      We as residents, content creators AND GRID OWNERS, need to stop fighting each other and come together as 1 big peaceful community.

    Many wirlds were able to startup because if you and many worlds are diverse and interactive because of you – You becane famous and, with or without justice, somehow being famous made you a voice of reference – It may not be fair but fame brings it always – Anyway, being objective – I never saw anything bad or unfair coming from you, so REMAIN CALM AND LET’SSS KEEP MAKING OS A BETTER PLACE
