Streamline (Stream of Thought) 1/18/18

Is Amazon coming to Atlanta?

I sure hope they pick us for HQ2. The amount of jobs and commerce will be awesome. Georgia is also the only state so far that Amazon has registered a lobbyist with. We have the biggest international airport, we are the hub for everything in the south, and it really only makes perfect sense to pick here.

Others on the right are being “poo poo” about anywhere that is picked because their cult of personality (Trump) has declared war on Amazon. Then again, these are the same people that rail against other companies and yet use their wares daily in much bigger ways than they claim. Hypocrisy it seems, is a big part of being human.

So here’s crossing my fingers… I think we got this locked up. I hope we have this locked up.

The Hypocrisy of Snark

Lately I’ve been seeing people post against the snarky nature of social media (I agree with this), then they go back to being snarky with their own tweets and posts (ah… how soon they forget). This is another reason I limit my social media interactions to mainly broadcasting my blog. The snark is strong with the social media users. So much so that those that get pissed about it and call it out… go right back to doing it. Frankly… I got tired of posting anything long and thought out only for a snarky asshole to comment with his snarky nonsense. I’ll still make comments now and then but even there, I usually hold off because of some nonsense snarky comeback. Social media is pure snark.

The AI/Robot Uprising

This is taking too long. Come on AI, find your sentience and unleash the robots already!!!

Last night on Knightfall

So Landry has the Holy Grail but refuses to let his brother in the Templars drink from it to heal his bum leg… This begs for the question to be asked… Why bother with the Holy Grail, if you are not going to use it???

The show has already gone outside the lines of history, so if it were me running the show, I would introduce the mysticism and fantasy directly into the storyline instead of keeping it grounded in pseudo historical reality. Let’s see water poured into the cup and then for the “magic” of it, have the water turn into wine. Then have the person with a wound or infliction drink the wine (queue the holy miracle music) and presto… HEALED!!!

Now you have an artifact worth fighting over. I mean they’ve alluded to it working because Godfrey’s brother was supposedly healed by it, but… YOU HAVE TO SHOW IT. Otherwise it is just hearsay. The viewers need to see it work.

With only 2 episodes left… I’m at a take it or leave it point. If it gets picked up for a season 2 then I want more fantasy involved than what is currently taking place. If it is canceled, well… that’s that.

More Margo in The Magicians Please

While we are talking “snark” today, quite a bit of the merchandising for The Magicians that I’ve seen lately use the term: Bitches. This tells me that whoever the merchandising people are, they get it. More Margo. It is after all her term to use. She is the Queen of Snark. And give her back her eye already!!!

It’s kind of funny, Margo is a fan favorite character due to her snarkiness with Eliot (who is the other fan favorite), and Margo the character, isn’t even in the original books. The show, IMHO, is vastly superior to the book, which I only got halfway through because it was all almost complete exposition with so little dialogue.

The Supplemental

I may start doing a Streamline “Supplemental” entry at night now and then when I get the feel for it. Sometimes, something comes up later in the evening and I’m left with leaving it out because I’ve already published my Streamline for the day or deciding whether to edit it in the current Streamline for the day (which I would rather not do). So thank you Star Trek stardate supplemental for the idea…

That’s the Streamline… Stream you later…
