i am the combined effort of everyone i've ever known.
(even that i stole)
but to a large extent i would argue that's true of everyone. nature vs nuture, i think the majority of us are nutured into our own opinions by the people we love, and the people we don't to be honest. songs i used to love of my own accord have been wrecked by shitty peoples liking of them. -oh no no no, i'm not lowering myself to his/her standards.- snob.
i think thats an issue i have where im trying so hard to break convention, my individualism becomes quite uniform. it's a shame really :) i'm living through a self convicted hedonism ("Isms" in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an "ism", they should believe in themself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles...I just believe in me."-ferris bueller).
and before i bore you to death this is isn't going to be a woe is me kind of thing. this is just me typing the contents of my brain into my computor screen.
