I don't see any "Misunderstanding" here, Apple
(Author's Note: If I totally misunderstood this little nugget of self-congratulatory rubbish from Apple, don't feel the need to point that out to me. I like my interpretation as is....)
"My whole family thinks I'm a morose, whiny little techno-addled loner. I mean, I guess I can't blame them- I'm constantly avoiding human interaction so I can spend time with my electronic buddy, and I make it very clear that I'd much rather watch something I just downloaded to my phone than to actually talk to any of them. Whenever I am forced to attend a family function, I walk around with my chin in my chest and a 'I'm a sullen, misunderstood artist type' look on my face, and I don't try to hide the fact that I'm totally addicted to that glowing thing that might as well be surgically attached to my hand. I have no sense of courtesy or respect or even gratitude because indulging in those emotions means I would have to stop being an isolated dickwad for a few minutes. Hell, I'm not even going to wash my hair now and then, because that's just not who I am.
But I'll show them- over the past week, while they were thinking I was just doing my usual 'fuck off and leave me alone carbon-based life forms, you are the assholes who need therapy, not me' bit, I was actually making a video that the whole family could share. That ought to shut them up for a while, and heck maybe it will even get me an upgrade on this lame-ass phone they got me on my birthday, six months ago.
And now that this whole sharing thing is over, maybe they'll leave me alone so I can back to posting pointless crap for my 369 friends on Facebook (367 of whom I've never met in person.) First thing I'm going to do is make a video about how painful it was to devote so damn much time to my idiot family. But we artists- we must suffer for our art, mustn't we?"
