Lost in Space (Netflix)

Binge it… Watch it… Check it out!!! Good stuff!!! I can’t wait until Season 2 hits!!!… which probably won’t be until 2019.

Fake News Has Been Around FOREVER

I was reading through some Spider-man comics and in Ultimate Spider-man, they complained about fake news in the 2000 – 2010 era, and then the original early issues of The Amazing Spider-man (60’s) illustrate how fake news is when pertaining to the paper. Moral of the story… Don’t trust the news period. Dig deeper and look behind the sensational reporting for the real story.

Speaking of News…

This whole Cohen/Hannity thing reeks of political strategy. The judge, a known liberal appointed by a liberal with a history of being liberal saw that she was sitting on a goldmine when she saw Hannity’s name. She knew that just by having the name made public, the late night talk show hosts and media would do the rest to associate Hannity with Trump and the other guy who paid off a woman, who were also this lawyer’s clients. And no surprise… last night’s late show liberal mouthpieces did just that. Earlier yesterday, before Hannity even said that he discussed real estate with Cohen, I speculated that it could even be real estate or really anything. However, the general public is what I consider the dumb masses. They only look at the surface of an issue and the political class know this. The general public is easy to manipulate. Once the media and talk shows get their news from the political class, it starts spreading the word, then the dumb masses will start doing the same. So regardless of if it was real estate or whatever… the left has already tied Hannity to the issue within the dumb masse’s minds.

The real kicker… The right keeps protecting the dumb masses that always go against them. It’s not smart to be pro-life and pro-population when the end result is more people against you. That the right refuses to see this… makes them just as dumb.

Speaking of the Right…

I’m getting sick of their anti-environment and anti-animal spiel. The left is bonkers but the right is just as bonkers. Just because the left champions keeping a clean environment and protecting animals, the right has to go to their corner and act like assholes to have an opposite opinion. Both sides do this shit, they can’t agree on anything because then that makes their team look like it is wavering. So sick of it…

The Social Media Purge

A bar called J.D. Wetherspoons has ditched all social media because they believe people are spending too much time on it. All correspondence with them can be had via their website (press releases and news) or in person and on site. THIS is the way things need to go. Here’s the thing… most social media is now bots tweeting, posting, and clogging up the streams. Who cares??? While I may still check social media on the web, I deleted all of it from my phone. I don’t want, nor need, to be in contact with those on Facebook, Twitter, or even G+ every hour, or every minute, of every day. No notification from any of those social media sites is ever imperative that it needs response NOW. Personally… I’d love to see more people take the first step and ditch social media on their phones.

Is it 2020 yet?

Are we even going to make it to 2020? I wake up today and His Royal Cult of Personality is sending 12 battleships toward Syria. As any long time reader knows, I was never a fan of Obama, but Trump is just damn reckless and unhinged. He has zero ability to lead and is a pathetic negotiator on the world front. And someone PLEASE!!! Take his Twitter access away!!!

Would you Pay to use Facebook without the Ads and Tracking?

That’s a headline I saw today and honestly… If they made their “Notes Feature” a full featured blogging experience that is accessible via mobile too, then I probably would pay for that and ditch my blogging site. Here’s the thing… Owning a domain and paying for my blog to be free, frees me from being under some corporate control. But the simple fact of the matter is that blogging here does not get the content here… out there. With no ads on my site, Google indexes it but refuses to share direct links to it. Not a lot of people use the WordPress Reader when compared to social media. Really, the only reason I don’t use FB as the blogging platform is because getting to “Notes” requires only using the web. If it was on mobile and if I knew that no ads would display with it, then I would probably just use that.

TOO MUCH CONTENT!!!!!!!!!

Lost in Space (Netflix) just hit today, Bosch S4 (Prime) hit yesterday, and I’m in the process of really enjoying a Suits (Prime) binge. I don’t have the time for all of this good stuff!!! I’ll probably pause Suits, start Lost in Space, hit some more Suits after that, and then binge on Bosch before getting back to Suits again. At least I think that is my plan… It could always change upon my whimsy.

It’s Friday the 13th

Insert obligatory Jason reference HERE

That’s all I have for today…
