Matrix Hacks

Month: January 2019 (page 1 of 5)

There’s so much to do in life, but…

… I don’t want it.

You see, there’s so much to do for other people. For normal people.

Me, I’m not normal – a bit of a psychopath, a bit of a sociopath.

Antisocial behavior 100%.

You can build roads, and houses, and cars.

In this life you can build whatever you want.

There’s this abundance around, but most people live in scarcity, here in Lithuania.

You see, when there’s abundance. There’s already everything in this matrix, but matrix lacks only your creative efforts.

Let other people do stuff and you better make something beautiful for yourself, because there’s this abundance.

The Prikolist EP6

Sunku šiais laikais.

I hope you enjoyed.

Million ways to express love.

Sure you can express love in millions ways, but to receive love there’s only one way.

Ineffective.

Most of your work will be ineffective. Mine sure is. Making videos for 10 viewers, man this is inefficiency at its best.

Successful people say that your 20% actions count for 80% results.

So successful person would remove 80% of his actions.

But we aren’t successful people here. I know, if you read my blog – you’re far away from success. Success might even not come to your life.

Being successful is really hard.

People have time to read blogs and watch videos, but those videos and blogs aren’t yours, right?

This statement is so accurate that I don’t need to comment further.

Google won’t make you rich.

Writing a blog and depending only on Google traffic won’t do you any good.

I don’t know what kind of articles you have to write so that traffic from Google would pick up.

The problem with many bloggers, me included, is that we rely only on Google traffic. Most of my traffic comes from youtube.

You see – Google wants better posts, better videos.

But what if you could get that traffic elsewhere?

Relying on Google alone won’t make you rich.

I know this because my traffic after 300 posts is just 2 to 10 visitors – Google doesn’t want people to see my blog. If Google would want it, Google can make any blogger rich and famous.

Don’t rely on Google, if you’re a blogger.

You don’t need to write your blog 4 years to get the traffic, what you need to do is promote your blog to your social media following. If you have any followers.

Many experts say that at first you need to build up your social media following – only then you need start your blog, but whatever. I started my blog as my main point of communication.

If people want to find me they know where to find me.

Every artist wants recognition.

This is a fact.

I never seen an artist who doesn’t want his work to be noticed.

This is the age of writers, poets, painters – there’s probably more writers than there are readers.

Who reads anyway?

Don’t give up no matter what.

People Like Brian Tracy tell that you shouldn’t give up no matter what, but imho you should give up on things that are not working.

My blog isn’t working, my youtube isn’t working – I know I should give up, but I want to follow Brian Tracy steps and prove you that if you do the wrong thing – success won’t come.

To do the right thing and give market what it wants – is very hard.

The market doesn’t know what it wants.

People are holding a grudge on me. I know this for a fact because back in the day I had more views on my videos.

My videos are lame I know, but at least I have something to do.

My blog posts are lame as well but whatever man.

Some people can write couple of sentences while others have to write millions of words and nothing magical will happen.

Life is unfair and I know it for sure.

Do you have the time?

When people tell that they have no time. It means that they aren’t pursuing any goals.

Because if you have no time to pursue your goals, what are you doing with your time? Whose goals are your pursuing?

I’m a blogger. I find time to blog everyday because it’s my top priority.

If I hadn’t had time to blog – I would not be a blogger.

Do you have the time to pursue your goals? Or do you have no goals?

When you have no goals – you don’t need to have time.

You gotta do something.

When somebody doesn’t like the way you’re living – everybody will suggest you to do something. As if your life matters to somebody.

Everybody’s got suggestions on how to live.

But there are no rules to life.

If you don’t feel like doing something – then don’t do anything.

Some feel joy in doing things, while people like me feel joy in not doing things.

If your nature is to be lazy – be lazy.

Because being lazy is doing something.

To be sincere, nobody gives a shit about how do you live.

We spend so much time thinking about “what others do think?” but to be true I don’t think about you and I don’t care about you, just because there’s like 8 billion people on the planet, if I would think about every person – I wouldn’t have the time to think about myself.

Being yourself.

As if everyone else is taken.

The problem with being yourself is that you’re always yourself.

You just can’t be anybody else.

Doesn’t matter what the awkward situation – you’re being yourself.

You’re sure not being me.

Creative crisis.

Everytime I think of a new book. I can come up with a great title.

But when I actually sit down to write it – my stories end up with couple of thousands words – then I’m empty.

It’s easier to start a new novel than to finish an existing one.

This for me is a creative crisis.

Man I just don’t know how I wrote my first detective.

When it comes to writing long boring books – I’m empty.

It’s easier to write bullshit blog posts and pretend that I’m an awesome blogger.

Writing books is a hard task. It became extremely hard and I don’t believe that anyone can write a book. Sure anyone in theory, but not everyone practically.

It’s been since 2013 I last wrote something long. I just can’t and probably I don’t want it.

When there’s something good to write – it usually pops out by itself. You don’t have to force it. Fiction is hard, non fiction is harder. Bullshit blogging is easy.

I love blogging because it’s short and casual.

Personally I doubt I will ever write something long.

Permission to create shit.

When a young artist starts his long and disappointing journey to fame and glory, he might feel embarrassed by his first works.

That’s why I permit you to create shit. I know you don’t need permission but whatever man.

When you prohibit yourself from creating shit, you can’t just pop a masterpiece out of your ‘asshole’.

That said, like defecation sometimes it comes out just perfect because it comes out often.

The future of web writing.

Enough said. The future of web writing is going to be very sad.

Today people know how to read, but what we all read most of the time is garbage, garbage with no enduring value.

The posts about blogs, the posts about money – non of it has the enduring value.

When I read something. I want deep meaningful texts but to no surprise there are almost none in the surface of the web.

The future of writing is clickbait. Texts written in a way that delivers low or close to none value. Sure they’re good when you want to learn something.

But what if you want to read? Read a story, read some writers ramblings who wants to connect with the world.

Of course there are writers like me, who want to connect on a deeper level. But most nowaday writers want just a click on an ad. As if the text was just a place holder for the ad.

Everything could be much better.

If one starts a blog, it will take years if not decades for it to reach surface. Best writing is in the underground and it never sees the daylight.

Did you click on this post? I hope you did because the future of writing is very disappointing and I mean very.

The casual writer competes with pros who just want some clicks. When a new writer enters the writer sphere he most likely will be ignored by the majority.

History shows us that the best writers of the time were ignored by people and became famous only after their death. But now fame is rare, just because there’s this overload of information.

Sure it would be great to earn couple of cents from ads – but whatever man.

Today writers fulfil the search engine search query. This way they know that their texts will be seen by people. This way they know they’re fulfilling a demand.

Why write, if there’s no demand – right?

But there will never be a demand for the depths of your soul.

Some writers write to be discovered and some are discovered as writers.

The future of writing is very much dissapointing. When the AI becomes alive, there won’t be any need for writers, because the computer can generate best selling books in a couple of seconds.

But the computer, he has no soul, therefore human writing should be the most demanding skill you can have. Doesn’t matter if somebody reads it – they never do.

Good memories from GTA5.

Good, no comment.

Deluded generation.

These days everybody wants to be a celebrity with massive load of followers.

Everybody wants to be a singer, everybody wants to be a tv star, everybody wants to be a blogger, everybody wants to be somebody.

… and everyone wants to prove something.

Everybody’s pursuing cash, today everybody is a CEO even when their company doesn’t make profit.

Everybody’s a founder, everybody’s working hard.

Everybody wants the American dream, everybody wants some likes on food they just consumed.

Everybody’s deluded.

Or maybe I’m the one deluded, trying to prove a point with my blog.

But if I’m deluded, so must be everyone else is deluded because we are the same generation.

Just couldn’t do it.

I downloaded venom the movie and was thinking I should do movie reviews.

But watched 10 minutes of the movie and I realized – I can’t do it.

Sure I can do it, but I don’t want to.

I really don’t like watching movies because they take up so much time.

The web is full of reviews, why would the world want my review?

I don’t want to write the same things everybody else is writing.

Some ventures give no guarantees.

For example blogging. I’ve started my blog almost 3 months ago and the traffic it gets is ridiculous.

2 to 10 visits per day. This for a blogger is a ridiculous amount.

This blog has more than 300 posts and it gets a ridiculous amount of traffic.

The problem with blogs is that you have to market them. If for example I won’t market my blog – it will never be a success.

Blogging gives no guarantees to me, but I started this blog just as a diary. Why would I promote it? It doesn’t matter if i’ll promote.

If my articles are garbage, there’s no need to promote them because people will come and then bounce back.

To promote a blog – you have to write epic blog posts while, me, I write simple posts. As I told before – it’s a diary.

Seth told in his video.

That it doesn’t matter if anyone reads it, but if I will be persistent – some people will read it.

You know in this age, a book is written for one person, a blog is written for one person.

Blogging doesn’t give you any guarantees that you will be making money.

Sure it takes a lot of writing before your blog is successful.

It’s better to write one post and show it to 1000 people, than writing 1000 posts and showing them to one person.

In general I need at least 1000 views per day to earn 5$ with Google Ads.

As I told before I’m looking for things that are fun to do and blogging is one of them.

When I saw blogging I knew that I will be doing it sooner or later.

I wonder how my blog will turn out to be in 4 years, 8 years and 20 years.

If after 20 years of blogging I won’t make 400€ this means blogging is a really lame way to make money.

I don’t want to push out my content to people who don’t want to see it.

Organic growth is a long process when you don’t do seo and marketing.

There is no guarantees I will be making some cash. 🙂

What is love?

Love is probably not a feeling because most people mix love with lust.

Lust on the other hand is a feeling of high attraction.

While love is a complect of feelings such as responsibility and others.

Lust fades and love does not both are feelings of attraction.

The handshakes.

Rich people are doing handshakes while poor people don’t have anybody to do handshakes with.

Poor are getting poorer and rich are getting richer.

Nobody’s going to tell you where do you get your first apple to sell.

If you have an apple – you can do the handshake.

But if you don’t have an apple – nobody’s going to do handshakes with you.

Not typical results.

When you search up people who offer you the secrets of blogging, you may find guru’s who will charge you just so you could start a blog*

And their blog* is showing results that are not typical.

Man if I would pay money for blogging secrets – I sure don’t want typical results. I want results that aren’t typical.

Most guru’s will offer you the secrets, the same secrets that are online for free.

There’s an overload of information. And you have to be a dumbass to buy blogging secrets.

It’s easy with blogs. Write, Publish, Promote – easy as cake in theory, but there are countless of blog posts which offer you the ‘tools’ to make it online.

So what’s the secret? How is the majority of blogs not making cash?

The secret is that there’s an overload of information. The more information in written, spoken, visual style the less demand it has.

When something is oversupplied, like air – you can’t take cash for air, because it’s oversupplied. The same goes with water in some regions water is highly demanded while in other continents there’s oversupply of water. That’s why water costs nothing, just has the delivery cost.

There’s one million blog posts everyday, maybe even more. So your little blog is just a drop in the ocean. And there are companies that don’t want to show your blog in the search results.

If you see a tank.

You don’t want to be the hero. You don’t want fame after you’re dead.

When you see a tank – fucking run.

Run, bitch, run – fuck fame, fuck glory, fuck everything but safe your fucking life man. Nobody cares about dead one’s. At least I don’t.

A man is better alive than dead. Alive men can build stuff, think stuff and write stuff. Would you love me more, if I was dead?

If you see a tank – run.

My childhood’s movie

Ninja In The Dragon’s Den is a great movie for those who were born somewhat in 1988.

This is a great movie, couldn’t resist posting it on my blog.

Officially done thinking about ‘the matrix’

Today we had a chat with my acquaintance and he asked me to look up the definition for the ‘matrix’ and it appeared that there is a definition for this word.

matrix definition

So guys thanks for following me but I want to say that I need a new idea.

If there’s a matrix – now I have to hack it.

Big and scary web log posts.

Today I tuned into Seth’s blog and saw a big scary post.

The problem with long posts is that they are well written – that’s fine, but the problem is that they take so much time to read. Most posts should be like 100-300 words, then it’s fine to read.

Big and scary is what google wants. But short is way better. I liked Seth for his short posts, but now they sometimes get a bit big and scary.

I started blogging because I didn’t see web logs like mine – short musings about reality.

If you can’t pack your knowledge in few paragraphs, then you should think about writing that scary post.

Short and sweat and big and scary. As far as I looked I never really read big posts. I just skim through them.

I’m done.

Going to dental hygienist.

She’s going to remove tartar from my teeth.

My mother said it’s not painful, but it’s an unpleasant experience.

Personally I don’t know – going to find out on my own.

PS. Sometimes I think there is no god, because why would god give such a bad teeth to people and other animals? If there’s god – he must be cruel.

Paradox

Just wanted to share with my friends 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy.

The soviet country life.

Today I was at my grandmother’s house.

She kept talking about the soviet life. That there were no shoes. In fact there was nothing. That her father was in America to earn something and when he came back everything he earned was stolen.

I guess soviet life was way different than life in America. America is the country of cruel capitalism. Although I never was in America so I can’t tell anything.

Soviet life is scarcity while many Americans whom I see through the web tell that the world is abundant.

I guess scarcity and abundance depends on where you are living.

My grandmother tells that today she’s living like in heaven. I guess capitalism is good for her.

Can you imagine. She goes by with 250€ pension and she manages to go to Palanga, Lithuania.

She says that this resort fills her with life. I can’t argue with that.

She’s old and waiting for her death to come. She has no future. Old people have no future because they have already lived their life.

But on the other hand, when you look at old people you see that life itself isn’t something special. There’s no need to think about success.

When you’re young you’re hoping for success, but when you’re old there’s no need to hope for success.

Life in the soviet country was very scarce. It’s been 70 years ago and now we have everything. Soviet communism was garbage. You can’t inflict communism on people who don’t want it.

Capitalism is garbage too, but capitalism made all this progress. There was no major progress during the soviet union times. Sure you could get a flat for free, but there was no jeans and coca-cola.

In soviet union everybody had to work, now you can stay at home and do this blogging thing.

I’m done.

Is TV costing nothing?

Me talking about the television. How TV is costing you your life.

Out of patience.

The Indeed.com pissed me off.

Motivation and hype.

When I stumble on a motivational video – I always get hyped. I mean always.

Videos inflict their on vision on you. Every single motivational video wants you to exercise. As if you can’t be successful while being fat. This is just nonsense.

I know some people who are fat and have a lot of euros in their pocket. It’s not fat that prohibits you from being successful

Over the years I’ve tried most things online and I’ve failed miserably. Nothing worked. Before I started my vlogs, one of my acquaintances told me that I won’t make it with these kinds of videos and he was right. He knew that the market wants something better than I’m producing. Thanks Erikas but I had to try it out.

PS: By the way you don’t have the https:// protocol.

Anyway. I was stubborn to try if my videos will do good, but it appeared Erikas was right.

Motivation on the other hand can boost you for a day, or for one hour. So it’s better not to watch motivational videos. You don’t need this hype.

Because when you’re hyped – you don’t act normal. The sense of self gets boosted as if you could climb all the mountains and walk around the earth. But that’s self-deception.

If we are so great, why don’t we do everything that’s necessary without the motivational video? As if the motivational video is a necessary part of our lives.

Motivation is for weak people and we are weak people if we watch the motivational video. I got a bit stronger – I tune out motivational videos when I see them because I don’t want to get hyped ever again.

The hype is like nonsense and most of the time it’s out of context with your life.

You don’t have legs and someone puts a running motivational video, you then begin to dream that someday your legs will grow and you will be running in the field. That’s nonsense. I don’t want to discourage everybody, but it’s really a nonsense way of viewing your life.

I don’t like when cripples tell normal people how great they are. In fact, when a cripple is talking about these wonderful things it makes me laugh, because if you’re a cripple you know you can’t do mostly anything. Because you require assistance in most things. People without arms and limbs can’t wipe their own ass and they’re talking these big and great visions on how they can become anybody they want. Whatever man. Nobody likes the truth.

You can call me an asshole but what’s true stays true.

In fact, without assistance we all can do so little. Because you can’t make a hollywood movie alone. You can’t do a lot of things, when you think about it.

If you’re disabled like me – don’t watch motivational videos, because you’ll get all hyped. Hyped for better future, hyped for better outcome during your life.

If you’re a healthy individual, go ahead and watch all those motivational videos. You’ll get hyped and still won’t produce any outcome. Motivation is a huge market, better be on the motivators side than mine. I’m not producing any income, while motivators produce thousands a year if not millions.

I’m done.
