What Is
Life In Fast Forward?
Welcome to the online home of me, some guy given the name John Cleveland Payne. In the grand scheme of life, I am just another guy with another blog. But to myself, and hopefully to all of you who actually read this, I am something a little more special. From a young age, I fell in love of the idea of ‘the message’ and medium in which you try to transmit.

Basically, everyone has a message to give to the world. Some are basic, some complex, some have the power to up lift and some are just out there to bring as many people down as possible. But everyone has a message, and most people have problems identifying their message. And the ones who get that far can seem to figure out how to get the world to listen.

Well, I have a message, and this is where I will get a chance to share it. Hopefully, you’ll get plenty of things to keep you motivated or inspired, provide knowledge and comfort, and just have a little fun. Apologies for the state of flux and state of seemingly confusing messages that you’ll get here for a while, as I am doing a lot of personal soul searching, and scrubbing of old ideas to take the best of the past to build a new beginning.

In 2007, I changed the name of blog from “The Mis-Adventures Of The Jazzy Cool One” to “Life In Fast Forward.” I began to tear down old blogs and newsletters and try to find places for them here. My goal is to take the focus off of me the person, and show the world the life I live and share with every human on the planet. I aspire to life at a very high standard, and instead of dealing with people who rather slow us down, I want to find ways to help people pick up there own pace. As you get to see an insight to the further adventures I hope to lead, hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride, and want to come along.

Your (Multiple) Online Home(s)

Let me start out by saying that I hate my Myspace page. Yes, I truly hate it, but I have to have one, because it’s the only way I have to communicate with many people. They don't call or email, by they update their Myspace page every few hours, letting the world know everything from there active descent into in the middle of a deep, dark depression, to the trivial passing of knowledge that they've just come out of a long tunnel on a train.

I must use my Myspace to get information too these people just as I must use the stupid thing to get information from them. And I have no proof that they actually look at my page or my bulletins, but somehow, they seem to know.

Hating my myspace page is just the tip of the ice berg. The real problem is that there are too many online tools and pages that house some sort of specialized information and creates a 'sense' of community. Social networking is more than a buzz word. It’s a way of life. But instead of being universal communication like the telephone, email or basic text messages, every site is its on animal, with its own language, and they do not play well together.

There are some tools that help to consolidate all the various sites’ information into one, but even that means joining another site with a new set of log in information to remember (assuming that you have a distinct password for every site...which I'm sure you do...right?).

Meanwhile, there are some sites and tools I enjoy. But I hate my myspace page. It has become one of my default online homes simply because ‘everybody’s doing it.’ Every body is on Myspace, although many have jumped ship to the Facebook…but that’s a whole other story.

I have a problem with not being in control, and having to post the same basic information to 20 or so different sites is an obvious streaking of control. But in order to keep up everyone who might find me, I have to literally be everywhere.

And I hate it. But I have a special hate in my heart for my Myspace page.
