A Mad Case of eRep Fatigue

Day 1,936, 16:25 Published in Canada Canada by Quimbie Muffins


So I figured I should throw some content at my newspaper. I usually use and abuse it for political purposes. You know, say if I am running for PP or Congress or find myself in an unfortunate political pissing match. None of that stuff is going on right now. Nope, I am as apolitical as I have ever been. That doesn’t mean I won’t soon get the itch. I am a political beast. I can’t help myself, it’s in my bones. I just find myself in a political stasis. Hell I think most of eCanada’s political figures are in the same boat. We’re wiped, we’ve got a President that is generally well regarded and it there is a very good chance that we won’t have a Congress, yet again, this month.

So what’s a fella to do?

Ralph Kline has already written the great eCanadian Unity article: http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/the-argument-against-unity--2225520/1/20 (a fine read I might add).

Uncle Buck’s last 3 or 4 articles have been great entertainment: http://www.erepublik.com/en/newspaper/i-write-with-crayons--288673/1

And Shoi12 is your man if you need a foreign affairs fix: http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/the-end-of-something-but-what-russia-vs-poland-2225287/1/20

What is it that I can add then, when I am not politicking? Seriously, I’ve got nothing. I have views aplenty, on pretty much any and everything that goes on in eCanada, but does the reading public even care what Quimbie Muffins thinks about any and everything? My ego would like to think yes, but lately I am unsure.

Maybe I need a project? A cause? An enemy? Something... Generally when I get eRep fatigue I do something rash. I move to eSouth Africa, then eRussia, then help form a new party, leave that party, drastically switch my political allegiances, or pick on Clan Wolf. But I have done all that and truly, most of that stuff really didn’t help my personal brand.

What is all this then? A cry for help? The mad ranting of a bored and unengaged eCanadian? Words meant only to fill a void that has been my newspaper? All the above?

Anyway, there it is. That’s where my head is at. I am doing my best to behave. It would be very easy for me to launch into some sorta lulz campaign just to cure the monotony, but frankly I am tired of it all. Gimme something to do eCanada, Quimbie is losing the fire in his belly.

Thanks for reading,
Quimbie out!

I have had my fair share of horrible landlords, but none of them pretended to be omnipotent. Yikes...

Try taking a step back from eRep for a bit, go read a book?

You could always have an article series. Acacia's 30in30/60in60 interviews went very well while they lasted.

Quimbie Muffins
Quimbie Muffins Day 1,936, 18:53

An article series would require commitment, something I am not known for. As for a step back, it'll happen as soon as the weather improves and I start working more steadily.

Oh and where's my hyuu? Geesh.

Mary Chan
Mary Chan Day 1,936, 19:21

With that attitude/expectation, here's an -annu- ;P

Bah, it doesn't have to be a series. Could be an article or two, design a graphic or penguin comic, idk. Well you could always go look up some eRep/eCan history, maybe necropost some forum stuff lols.

All excellent suggestions Mary. I have been banging around the idea of producing some political satire, something along the lines of an eDaily Show, but do I have the chops...??? I am sure I will come up with something to keep me engaged.

1.Make a military unit dedicated to Resurrecting and protecting the interests of the Brolliance.
2.You could always have an article series.

Your two options Quimbie ^__^

Quimbie Muffins
Quimbie Muffins Day 1,936, 19:37

The first option requires gold which I do not have.

The second is doable, but I may need the help of some talented and funny writers to help me out.

I like reading everyone's opinion, goals for people in this game are so varied, and I like knowing who in here has the same interests as me ^ ^

I've researched the politics here when I first started and knew my political opinion wouldn't really count until I got older and absorbed some of the workings of the game.. I'm getting there, but I've still never believed in the ASGARD alliance, from knowing nothing about it, to knowing quite a bit now ^ ^ So out of political bordom, you wanted to oppose it with me.. could be fun I've notice the few times I've challenged some people about their motivations or ideals, they're either enlightening... or I find out whose just following the buffalo, either situation helps when forming political opinions Anyway..
Hope something happens soon to interest you.. I kind of understand why your bored
