AND…I’m ate daze late on the April Full Bidet.

(Translation: I am eight days late on April Fool’s Day)

To be fair tho, even I’ve not been over here in several weeks. No reason to be here really. Not till now anyway.

Q: Is it too much of a stretch to think that if we are killing and starving, that we can expect the same?

A: ???¿¿¿

Space seems like this enigmatic emptiness. but I don’t really don’t see much difference between space and the room that I’m currently sitting in; the ground below my feet; the lakes, rivers and oceans of air and water that surround us. We can walk/move, we can dig, we can swim, sometimes can even fly. So…what is space? Or would that be better worded as…

Q: When is space?

A: ¿?

I guess that depends on the size of your occupation force. May also depend on your objective(s) and/or intentions. Prolly all that, but certainly sum of it.

^how not to cut tree down part 2 of 3^


TonnetzTorus_Resize

It appears that knives are being cut out of the equation in certain parts of the world. I saw a Tweet last night where the mayor of London was quoted as saying something to the effect of “no one ever has a reason to ever carry a knife.”

O RLY?

Say that when you’ve just been in a car accident, the car is on fire, but your seatbelt is jammed/won’t unlock because the locking and/or release mechanism was damaged in the accident. Now all you have to do, is sit there and wait to burn to death. Or pray that emergency services shows up in time to cut your ass out.

So yeah…smart thinkin’.

Wait. What? Do we have a question from The Whatever However Hotline?!?!?!?

Q: Cade, What are those things under each and every video?

A: A milestone/milestones

Sometimes, vids may be removed from a particular host. They are removed for various reasons, but the fact that they are gone is likely what concerns us the most. There are also videos that may be available “here” but not “there”…depending on where you are.

When a video is removed on YouTube, sometimes the name of the video is removed as well. Not always, but sometimes. It depends on whether there is a copyright claim, or an account suspension, or video being deleted by the user, all kinds of crazy shit.

My adding the name of a particular video leaves me a marker of sorts. When I first started writing, I didn’t do that. As a result, a lot of videos have been removed, and I’ve no idea what they were. I may have an idea, but I forget things…so…yeah. /shrug

Anyway, I posted for a while on these whatchacallit forums, and one of the admins made a rule that all embedded videos needed to also include a hyperlink to the video. I took it a step further, and included the video name as well. But I also tended not to embed videos, just included a hyperlink, and no description. It added to the mystery a bit when a video was somehow related to what I was writing about, but it also gave the reader a choice as to whether or not to click on the link. It also helped build a rapport with the reader. Trust. When and if to trust me, when to trust yourself.

I dunno if it was right or wrong, but it was sometimes pretty fun to think about. Still is.

A: Yes. Sometimes, I am going to intentionally blindside the fuck out of you. But just keep in mind, that being on this end doesn’t make things any easier.

I’ve no answers.

^CHVRCHES – Leave A Trace^


I’ve not written much here at/for WordPress. But I’ve not saved any of it. Like, backups on my local computer…there are none.

Everything that I write for my own blog and for The LoL is backed up. Backed up in several places via several mediums actually. Much of the crap I wrote over at the Synchromysticism Forums was backed up too…but not all of it. It took me almost a year to repost all of the backup files/posts from my “If I said, “I AM a Synchro” thread over there, and I’m now thinking about what it would take to recreate a blog were it to be lost/destroyed.

Wait…I just got sidetracked via some news on Twitter.

You don’t know me because I’m new here.

But I’m new everywhere…so…yeah…I don’t know you either…so yeah.

I’ve no idea what that means either, so don’t sweat it.

Anyway, I’ve a pal who uses WordPress. They sometimes have issues with WordPress. When they alert me to the fact that they are having issues with WordPress? I feel kinda…helpless. I’m familiar with blogs and blogging, I’m familiar with computers and software, I’m familiar with technical support, I’m familiar with people…but I don’t…know….WordPress.

Odd that I’ve been writing articles for over a year now that have been published on WordPress. I dig rest.

So yeah…here I am…learning WordPress a bit. If my experience with technical support and software development has taught me anything, it’s taught me that rule number one in troubleshooting and/or bug hunting is…try and break it. Yep. Type characters into numeric fields, try and put decimals into integer fields, paste ridiculously long strings into text fields, and even longer text strings into memo fields…anything and everything crazy you can think of to do…do it. It’ll not only give you specific and local feedback as to your focus field(s), but it’ll also sometimes reveal things going on with forms, states, timers, and any/all processes that may be running in the background. If you’ve got some crazy looping or case routine running, and you do something wacky with a particular field, there’s no telling what your action(s) will reveal in the damnedest of places that you NEVER thought would EVER affect eachother.

I find this ironic considering the contextual nature of applications as well as the structured nature of the underlying architectures. If you baby something just to get a product out the door, you aren’t thinking about your end users and the chaotic nature of their lives. “Multi-Tasking” is multi-faceted, inside and out.

^Tribes – Shazfunk^


The only reason I’ve yet to really start to try and wreak havoc with the WordPress edit window, is because I’m trying to think more about my friend and how she uses it. Although not a programmer per se, she’s quite savvy. I would imagine she is more than “computer savvy” cept maybe still a shade timid about jumping off into the deep end and exploring the code window a shade more.

I also need to consider that I write articles that she posts on her blog. I write them and send them over in a plain-old text file, she then edits the living fuck out of my part, adds her own bits, then posts it. I know what I sent her, I know what I see. Rarely does she have to contact me with questions, and it’s even more rare that she has questions that are not directly content related…but it can and does happen.

So yeah…I’m not a complete newb to WordPress, just a complete n00b to this part of WordPress. That said, I’m not quite ready to start seeing how I can get the editor to misbehave. There are browser issues to consider, not to mention the fact that I am running what would be considered antiquated hardware that is running outdated and unsupported software. 10 year old computer.

Man. Can you imagine abandoning a 10 year old because you didn’t want to support them anymore? Too non-cost-effective. Too many constraints. Too much ineffective use of time. Too many demands.

I’m off track.

Let’s review us some WordPress blogs!!!

99PercentInvisible

https://99percentinvisible.org/


K…this fuck here has 19,612,078 followers. Which is weird, because when I first opened their page, WordPress was reporting that they had like 19,611,900 followers. Did they really gain 178 followers in like 10 minutes? I’ve been on WordPress for over a month now, only have 2 followers, and one of those followers is me. lolz…I’ve no idea how that happened, cause I certainly didn’t follow myself, and I’m afraid to use the admin tools to remove myself from the “followers” list, because I’m afraid it’ll ban me from using my own blog. lolz…technology is fucked. Anyway…

This blog’s byline reads…

The website of popular podcast 99% Invisible invites visitors to explore off-the-beaten-path topics in design, architecture, and technology.

Color me skeptical, but how fucking far “off the beaten path” can you be with almost 20 million followers? That’s creeping up on the entire population of the state in which I live.

Texas/Population

27.86 million (2016)

Not to mention that this state has some pretty impressive architectural and technology centers, as well as some pretty weird shit that not many have heard of here and there.

DAMN!!! The lil’ Statue of Liberty in Forney has been removed!!! FUCK!!! But yeah, there’s some weird shit in this state. But I’m wondering just how much weird shit you can actually get to in a podcast with 19+ million followers. You gotta remain topical, otherwise, no one will listen to your shit. Maybe the byline remains to keep the heart and soul of what was, all nested within the confines of what is.

Meh.

OK…so….something weird going on here.

I’m on the “discover” part of WordPress, and the very next “blogger” has 19,613,444 followers. Hmmmm. Not to mention that their “NASA: Visions Of The Future” link took me to some domain parking service. So…I looked at the date on this NASA link, and it’s from Feb 20th of 2016. Hmmmmm.


NASA: Visions Of The Future

A futuristic poster series for NASA, created by design firm Invisible Creature.

discover.wordpress.calm/2016/02/20/visions-of-the-future-nasa/


!!!!DO NOT CLICK THAT LINK!!!!

(DON’T COPY IT AND PASTE IT INTO YOUR ADDRESS BAR EITHER DUMBASS)

In fact, I’m not even going to make it a hyperlink, because some weird shit is afoot with that link. But I’m sure wordpress will auto-parse the URL, so I’m left in a quandary as to what to do. I’ll edit most of it and see if I can get any auto-formatting routines to skip it.

Anyway…the second time that I clicked on it from the “discover” page, I was redirected to some website called “loops” somethingoranother, and I would up at The Lowes website looking at “Ready Refill 2.88-Gallon Mixed Annuals Combinations” No shit…it freaked me out a bit, but not really. I guess the design firm “Invisible Creature” went missing or something.

Any way…it looks like there are “hosts” from WordPress that are supposed to be featuring/highlighting WordPress content, and THEY are the ones with all of the followers and not the bloggers themselves.

(Sorry 99 Percent Invisible. Dunno how many followers you have, but I’m 99% sure it’s prolly not 19+ million)

So yeah…really? February of 2016 is the best/freshest content there is? I only ask, because your link is dead. Well, it’s actually quite alive and lively. But if some WordPress newb clicked on that, they’d likely shit their pants. Especially if they somehow wind up at Lowe’s. They may not have a clue what Lowe’s even is.

Now that I’ve refreshed the WordPress “discover” page, this guide or whatever they are now has 19,613,757 followers. 313 new followers in like 15 minutes.

No wonder they’ve no time to update the “discover” page. Prolly busy as shit answer pm’s or whatever. Or…perhaps something else is afoot?

K…I may have figure out that there is some master “discover” account, and certain people show up under that for some reason. Anyway, I went back to the main “discover” page, and there was a box there that said something about growing your travel blog business, so, I clicked on it.

Right off the bat, we’ve an issue to tangle with. It looks like someone is getting interviewed by someone else, and the person being interviewed is reflecting on some shit from back in days of yore with respect to a travel blog they started.

At one point, the logo was a cat and I was posting about growing tomatoes.

WTF?!?!?!? Cats and tomatoes should provide a FUCKTON of content. Cats are weird as shit, and their ain’t much you can’t do with tomatoes.

But yeah, it’s tough finding your feet sometimes. Not all of us are cats being dropped while upside down nor bread covered in peanut-butter that is dropped right-side up.

  • Cats – Always land feet down
  • Peanut-buttered bread – Always lands peanut-butter side down.

I’ve no scientific fact to back that up, nor any other references to cite. It’s just what I’ve heard.

If I’ve no business being here, where am I supposed to go to not sell the shit I’m not selling?

This bullshit sounds more like an advertisement for WordPress and it’s partners than it sounds like a tutorial for helping startups. They make it sound as if it’s as easy as “just adding payment buttons” in order to open an online store. I get the feeling, it ain’t that easy.

Just yesterday and today, I was reading on Twitter, and there’s someone on there trying to figure out how to sell their shit online without going broke. I’m guessing that there is a hefty “buy-in” to sit down at the economic table. Gotta keep the riff-raff out so that the stakes remain high, so that the dividends in-turn remain high.

But yeah, it appears that you first have to upgrade to WordPress “premium” $ervice$, and then you can get access to even more fees you’ll need to pay.

Cool.

^Weird russian singer – Chum Drum Bedrum^


I’m starting to understand a bit more why RooBeeDoo uses some “unorthodox” techniques for formatting both her and our blog posts. This shit is difficult to read and follow without a fuckton of guidance and forethought as to how we write, and how what we write is eventually formatted. I say “we” there, because me and Roob seem to have similar writing styles with respect to the blog posts that we write. Now that I’ve come out of my shell a bit, and started to be a shade more wordy, along with me actually using WordPress a bit myself so that I can see how the editor works and what WordPress’s vision of what blogs and blogging is…yeah…some things are starting to make even more sense.

I’m not here to sing Blogger’s praises. It’s quirky and buggy as fuck, and especially when you try to get clever with it. It’s constantly adding superfluous spacing everyFUCKINGwhere, and seems to have a problem with both trimming and adding trailing spaces. I trust the Blogger editor as far as I can throw it, which is why I still backup everything that I write in text files on my local drive. I lose all of the formatting, but I wrote and formatted the shit, so should I ever need to, I’m quite confident in my abilities to get the formatting back to pretty close to what it was.

Blogger also doesn’t have much in the way of formatting tools. You get a coupla fonts that only have three sizes, and even if you go in and tinker with the HTML, your are going to get overridden by the visual editor.

I guess maybe at some point, I should attempt an entire Blogger post in the HTML editor and see if the two conflict in any way.

But yeah…thinking about it now, Blogger seems to be really fucking big on keeping everything away from everything else.

Methinks we've gotten obsessed with sanitary.

OH FUCK!!! THAT REMINDS ME!!!

3 Years - 8 Months - No Pain Meds = As of 2018.02.23

Anyway, there’s a bit about Heroin “addicts”, and it got me to thinking about the process of letting go that seems to hang the fuck on. Such as…”addicts”.

I read the bit about turning circles in the store, and everything you see reminds you of the someone you lost. I know that feeling. If I possessed some something that I’ve found to help make it better, I’d pass it along/share it…but I’ve found no such thing. Well, except time. Time helps a bit. But someone trying to “get over” the need to cry when you feel one coming on? I don’t think that helps. Not always anyway. You’ll just have to be your own best judge. I find that a combination of letting the tears fly and holding them back sometimes works, sometimes not.

Writing has helped me quite a bit. Helps me personally to avoid and confront at the same time. Allows me the time to ponder the concepts of both without really doing either. Makes facing one or the other a shade more identifiable when we unwittingly find ourselves in those grooves. I think what can be key tho, is remembering that you are still you, and they are still them. Wandering off to fight a proxy war is going to likely to result in proxy victims. Victims you’ll never know that you even victimized.

Not trying to imply that their aren’t just and good motivations, nor am I implying that you are without grievance nor cause. But you gotta sometimes question yourself…

Q: Where does your life stop, and theirs begin?

A: |?¿|¿?|??|¿¿|?|¿|

Just spend a lot of time thinking about bans and banning. Those who ban are happy to seek new crusades and new enemies when battles are won. But what about “the banned”? Are you really ready to lead a “join or die” crusade against the entire world?

You may have the entire world figured out, but some of us don’t have a clue.

When do the rest of us get to live our lives the best we can?
What happens when you die/move on?

What are the rest of us supposed to do?

Emulate you and your ruthless cause(s) that focus on just and only a single aspect of our lives that differs from yours?

Because I personally have my own thing against crusades and the crusaders that join them.

Do I need to lead a crusade against crusaders?

Should I volunteer to be the first convert and/or casualty?

I wonder how many causes there are for death?

That doesn’t sound so good…does it?

Causes…

…for…

…Death

Yeah…that don’t sound good at all. Almost sounds like some damn fool idealistic crusade. (nod to Obi Wan)

The only cause of death that I’m aware of…is death. If there’s one specific thing that leads to death, there are many.  My dad died of lung cancer, and it was Mesothelioma, but he was someone who smoked cigarettes, so the doctors were hesitant to diagnose it as such even though all the signs were there. Plus he had two previous heart attacks, one mild, one not so mild at all, and those were attributed to smoking even tho he had blocked arteries and had to get stints put in. I’m sure that was bad diet related. But to anyone who is operating under this “he shoulda lived healthier” crap, you didn’t know the man at all.

He spent his days covered in greases, and oils, and all fucking kinds of vile chemicals that would turn most people into mush on first contact. His hands were worn, scarred, beaten and caloused…like an old catcher’s mitt that was somehow made out of steel. No chance at all that the industrial sewing machines he worked on ever sewed a shirt or pair of pants or a dress or underwear or shoes or a coat that you eventually bought. No chance that you sleep on a mattress that was made on a machine that he repaired at some point. No chance that the fancy embroidery on your hat or jacket was made with a sewing machine that he spent hours tweaking so that the design and sewing would be flawless.

His father worked on industrial sewing machines too. In fact, he worked at a bra factory in WWII that converted to wartime production of parachutes and belts and bandoliers and shit like that. Chances are that my grandfather worked on sewing machines that sewed parachutes together that eventually dropped paratroopers into France on June 6 of 1944, and later into Holland on September 17th of 1944. Not to mention all of the parachutes that were sewn for God only knows who else. My grandfather didn’t smoke, but he did smoke cigars for a while. He quit eventually because he chose to quit. His wife smoked. So did 3 of their 4 children. One of those four children eventually grew up and got freaky with some lady that I call “mom”, and several months later…I appeared outta nowhere.

But that’s all irrelevant…right?

I wander. It reflects in my writing. But that’s how I personally deal with my own shortcomings in life. I could make analogies about letting the current carry me and swimming against it and shit like that, but it’s kinda all that…it just depends on when we encounter eachother as to what I am doing at the time.

What were you doing at the time we crossed paths?

Is there some cosmic coincidence in our meeting?

Or did you have an agenda from the get-go, and I wound up in your net.

Doesn’t matter to me how you qualify our meeting. I’ve seen both coincidence and destiny wrapped up in a confusing package that makes no sense whatsoever to anyone but me. I spend most of my days in my own skin. Most of my nights are spent in that same skin. So yeah, I kinda know me a little bit. If you want me to sum up my life and/or outlook on life in a sentence or two?

Go fuck yourself.

How’s that? Does that suit your purposes? Only others have ever tried to convince me that I am some kind of defect that doesn’t belong here. There’s shit lined up from here to Kingdom Come telling me how fucked up I am and what to do about it.

Q: How did you find the answer(s)/cure(s)?

A: ???!!!???

If you can find them, so can I. That said, maybe you were/are just the person I’ve been looking for. Not that I am looking for anything really, but you never know. Maybe it was destiny that we met. I’m not one to turn my nose up at chance when it appears.

^The Prodigy – Climbatize^


Just had a thought about….teamwork. Sharing. Support. It got me to thinking about the concepts of rising and lowering. Shining and dimming. As I pondered a bit more, it got me to thinking about identity. Associations. Associating. Goals.

Within the framework of a group, there will be many things both common and uncommon. The type and types of contrast necessary to make distinction(s). But I guess where all of this thinking made my mind wander to was leadership and success. Albeit, these thoughts of success came down to differences in opinion on what success is, to whom, and how these conclusions are arrived at.

If someone distinguishes themselves, and this someone “ascends” to positions that are categorized as being “above”, where does that leave the rest of the group? Meaning, if one is shining…are the others…dimming?

Q: According to whom?

A: ¿?¿ + ó¿ó + ?¿? = ¿|?

So yeah…I’m thinking about context(s), perspective(s), associating, relating and…….GRAVITY!!!

Gravitating might be a more appropriate word with respect to human groups and grouping, but I personally still believe that Newtonian law(s) are equally applicable to life and lifeforms, and that removing life from Newton’s work is likely why we fail. We are made up of the same shit that surrounds us…so…yeah…I don’t get it. (separation) That said, what I really got to pondering, is getting lost within a group, and perhaps some of the factors that can cause us to get lost.

EX: Tom is knowledgeable about everything, but not real good at anything. However, Tom is great with people, and can relate to just about anyone, with a few exceptions of course. Tom has his own ambitions and goals, and is both driven and hardworking. Tom eventually starts to climb his way through the ranks, much to “the pros'” and “the professionals'” chagrin, and before long, Tom appears to be living on Easy Street.

Tom buys a house, gets a new car, gets married, has some kids, wears nicer clothes, etc..

Q: Who likes Tom?

A: ???

Only you can answer this.

^twenty one pilots: Stressed Out [OFFICIAL VIDEO]^


Our good friend Tom. The guy who used to always be there for everyone…has abandoned us. He’s forgotten what it is like to be on the front lines. Forgotten what it is like to have everyone chewing on your ass to get shit done. Forgotten what it is like to be…abandoned. I mean…we hardly even see the guy anymore. What in the FUCK is he doing all the time? I only see him when he’s arriving for work, or leaving for work.

WHERE IN THE HELL DID TOM GO?!?!?!?!?

Meanwhile…back on Earth…

Cade is busy pondering this current WhateverInTheFuckItIs. And he would like to discuss the commonality of difference(s) via sameness(es).

What does that mean? Welp, if Tom always had dreams of buying his own house, maybe a new car, a family, and job that would provide all those things…

Q: Where did Tom go wrong?

A: I bet you’ve got a list. And if you didn’t then, you do now.

Such is the nature of relationships? Is that a premise written in stone? Or is that something that we ourselves make up as we go.

OK…so we’ve established that Tom is a good guy gone bad.

Q1: How is your relationship with your co-workers now?

A1: ???

Q2: How was your relationship with your co-workers prior to Tom turning into an asshole?

A2: ¿¿¿

Poor ol’ Tom. He’s on The Flight of Icarus…and doesn’t even know it.

Meh. He’ll get an education…and soon.

Heading back to my original thought(s), will get me back to my original thought, and that is commonality. Shared likes + Shared dislikes = Commonality?

I dunno, that seems more like a choice for you to make. But where I kinda arrived at, is your assumption that during your own personal time of “Getting To Know Tom”, it just took you a while to find out what a prick Tom really was. He seemed OK. But then, he revealed his true nature and true colors. A self-serving dickhead just like the rest of em’.

Q: What were your personal goals when Tom first appeared in your life?

A: Or have you long since given up on them?

You sure as shit appear to have given up on Tom…so…go figure. You may as well give up on everything else while you’re at it. Which reminds me, while you are in a giving mood…are you gonna eat that? 😛

I just got sidetracked by some fuck named Sir Henry Neville.

Got tread lightly here. Not that I’m not already neck-deep in the swamp or anything. But to be fair, I choose to be here/remain here…so…yeah. Something about alligators.

Which…that brings up a pretty good question for you “swamp drainer” types…

Q: What did The Swamp ever do to you?

A: Attract Alligators?

Welp…what attracted you? Lemme guess…The Swamp?

I guess that makes you an alligator too. Don’t it?

Me? I’m just passin’ thru. I’m more The Gingerbread Man. I guess I should be kinda…foxy…in these hostile territories…eh?

Anyway…”The House of Neville” appears to be big across yon pond.

Not sure what this…ern…diversion has to do with anything, but I have a pretty goddamn good idea.

Can’t blame people for looking for treasure. But, in our day and age, can you imagine the throbbing clusterfuck that would result in actually finding some treasure? I mean like, treasury treasure. I’ve already found treasure in my own personal life. Don’t have it anymore, but yeah…I kinda do.

Dunno if I’m unique in this regard, but if I wasn’t off-course, I wouldn’t know where I was. Wouldn’t know where I am going.

^The Prodigy – Speedway HD 720p^


I guess now that I’ve used WordPress a bit more like I personally would use it, I can see why WordPress might have a shade more appeal to certain sets of users. The interface is a shade more intuitive once you start to actually use the fucking thing. But then, it gets a shade…restrictive. Almost like…the entire time you use it…someone is watching your goofy ass. Every single thing is monitored. Everything you do is reviewed and acted upon in the right fucking NOW!!!

Instead of getting more comfortable with the edit window/editor, I find myself cringing a bit with every keystroke. Like…at any moment, the next keystroke could spell dezaster!!!

lolz…get it? Spell…dezaster?

Anyway, I find myself feeling more constricted. Like my shoulders are tensing and I cringe at every thought of pressing a key. I mean…I’ve no idea what in the fuck each keypress is going to do. Not to mention, that getting to the end of the editor window is irritating as FUCK when the goddamn edit box contents doesn’t scroll when you reach the end of the page. What’s up with that? Must be a browser/service discrepancy or something. I’m digrestlessing here.

Yesterday, when simultaneously writing those posts with RooBeeDoo, I somehow got into some fucking loop where every time I would hit the delete key, or highlight an object and then hit the backspace key, WordPress would kick me out of the editor window and take me back to the user area or whatever it’s called. This happened several times as I tried to figure out why WordPress was not adding images or videos to lines where I had centered the cursor/text, and then pasted in the text of a URL. I then discovered that…yeah…WordPress was adding the damn things…they just wouldn’t show up until you closed the edit window, then reopened the post for editing.

/me shrugs

Anyway, shit is going to get wonky as new features are added and/or old ones dropped. I can accept that. But then again, I’m a software developer who has quite a bit of experience on both sides of the fence. “End-users” are kinda like The Emperor in Star Wars. They  aren’t nearly as forgiving as Darth Vader is.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03vbi4crR64

^The Prodigy – The Heat (The Energy) HD 720p^


I also kinda don’t like some of the continuity issues. Like…

If I center some text…

…and then hit a hard return, the editor automatically resets the formatting to the default.

This kind of automation kinda makes sense, but not really. It certainly doesn’t make sense from an authorship point, when I am both writing and editing my writing at the same time.

Pro-Tip: Not all authors follow convention. Not all authors are hooked on standards.

  • Why can I not highlight a portion of and/or the entire contents of the edit window?
  • Why do you require me to go to the “HTML” portion of the edit window, and copy blocks from there?
  • What’s your beef with highlighting an embedded video? You fucks are the ones that is parsing every single URL to see if it’s embeddable.
  • Should I have worded the previous as “to see if it can be embedded?
  • If you are trying to sell me on the idea that I should switch from Blogger to WordPress, you may want to keep “sell” in mind considering your pricing matrix.
  • Starving artists…are…well…starving.

I want this shit to be readable, but I also want some flexibility to  relate to the reader what I am thinking. I deal in vaguery quite a bit since much of what I talk about is either abstract and/or an abstraction. Existential kinds of shit that leans heavily into ethics. This means I must avoid morality, legality, governmental and anything religious in nature. This further means that I’m always hip-fucking-deep in that bullshit.

But why wouldn’t I be?

It’s everywhere. Unavoidable. Not to mention that anywhere these things are not, is exactly where they want to be.

Under your skin. In it. Around it. Omipresent. Omniscient.

This get’s us back to…Tom. (and you)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLw07T0y8R8

^The Prodigy – Full Throttle HD 720p^


Just because everything is “this” to you, and may even sometimes appear to be “this” with others, doesn’t make it so. Not everyone is so narrow and single minded as you. 😉

But my thought is, that if you and a certain group appear to have common purpose, are you really being fair as to…erm…

…your secret agenda(s)?

Yeah. That stuff that is for you, you, you, and only…you. Like say…the position that Tom has wound up in. You wanted it, he got it. Where does that leave Tom?

You wanted Tom’s position then, and you want Tom’s position now. But you’ll never tell Tom that…will you? Anyway, I just wonder what consideration you’ve given to Tom and his position. If the roles had been reversed, would you be floating around in the stratosphere looking down upon all the people cussing you for being the elevated money-grubbing power-hungry shitbag that you are? Or would you be spending time milling around with the riff-raff and staying current with your peeps. Not to mention, what does this not only say about you and how you feel about your current station in life, but also how you feel about your co-workers. Your “more-equals”. Are they shitbags too?

Just thinking, that even tho we may have commonalities and/or common goals, that doesn’t make the totality of our being(s) the same. “It’s all about this” or “it’s all about that” completely ignores time(s) and change(s).

Sounds to me like “it’s all about determining what it’s all about, and then, going out and proving that you personally know what it’s all about, and others should know what it’s all about as well.”

That’s quite the paradigm.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhUdQ1FNDXQ

^The Prodigy Babys Got A Temper^


I’ve primarily been thinking about just and only a couple of people while writing this, and one in particular. Supposedly, they have put forth a theory, the redux being, “it’s all about sex.”

Every paradox is going to have a loop. Hence, it can’t be all about sex, because prior to, it was all about finding out what it’s all about. Even if you know “what ‘it’s’ all about”, you still gotta stop to start again. But that’s just my opinion.

That said, this is likely why the concept of “The Alpha and Omega” makes sense to me personally. A beginning and end that simultaneously co-exist within something else entirely.

  • Find the begging, and you simultaneously find the end.
  • Find the end, and you simultaneously find the beginning.
  • All of those co-exist in the same space and spaces.

But that raises the question…

Q: What about the middle?

A: Welcome to it.

I dunno. We walk right though beginnings and endings every moment of our life, and don’t give it a second thought. So what and where lies the controversy? Welp, if you are The Creator, seems to me that you’ll be wrestling with the concept of “is and is not” for the entirety of existence. You can add whatever name you want there in place of “The Creator”, but to me, the concept of “The Creator” is going to be dynamic.

EX: A door-to door salesman comes to your door. What did this person have for breakfast this morning? What did YOU have for breakfast this morning?

Who know what, and when. I mean, you wanted to talk about more existential types of stuff with a random stranger…right? And before you dismiss that thought out of hand, you might give some thought as to why doctors are so popular. I mean…doctors are strangers…right? But in the case of doctors, you are the stranger seeking out another stranger for something. Not unlike the door-to-door salesman that just appeared out of thin air, interrupting your breakfast trying to sell you something you may or may not need.

I wonder if we need doctors?

Well yeah…not now we don’t need them obviously…but we might.

Good thing they are there, and ready, and waiting…eh?

Must suck to be on a shelf tho.

I wonder if that shelf is…elevated.

Who put that shelf there?

Who put the shit that is resting on the shelf up there in the first place?

Weird.

^The Prodigy – Jericho^


I just found out…if you type within the edit box of the WordPress editor, and the text wanders off the page at the bottom to where you cannot see it, but you keep on typing anyway? Eventually after a hard-return or two, the page will scroll automatically to where you can see what you are typing again.

That said, I don’t think that most are as comfortable with typing blindly as I am. I only use three fingers and both thumbs to type, but I still can type pretty fucking fast and am quite accurate + very comfortable with the keyboard.

I guess years of working on and with computers will do that to a fella.

Same shit, different perspective(s). I’m also writing a post on my Blogger blog too, all while we are chatting on Twitter and talking about shit. I’ve no idea what of mine she’ll include in her post, and I’ll be including the entirety of her post, plus some other of her thoughts maybe if she wants. This should be interesting. 🙂

We’ve been talking about a lot of weird shit over the past week, and especially over the last few days. Last night/early this morning, I fucking FINALLY watched a video that someone named “Lite” passed along to me a coupla years ago, but I never watched. It’s an interesting video, and there’s much to think about with respect to the video’s contents. That said, it’s the contents of this video, and the experiments done, that has me personally thinking anywhere and everywhere EXCEPT…the contents of these experiments.

K…so…we’re back to me. She passed me the HTML of the first part of her post, I was able to add it here and see what she was writing/how she was formatting it.

I think it important to point out, that of the list of films that are listed for best picture, I’ve seen none of them, only ever heard of two of them, know the story behind one of them, and know who directed another film.

  • Dunkirk  – Have heard of the film, and know of the story behind it.
  • The Shape of Water – Have heard of it, and know that Guillermo Del Toro directed it.

Did you know that Sleeping Beauty’s name is actually Aurora? I didn’t.

From Goo Gale…

“Sleeping Beauty” is adapted from both the Charles Perrault and Brothers Grimm versions of the classic fairy tale. In Perrault, the princess’s name is Aurora; in Grimm, it’s Briar Rose. In the movie, she’s born Aurora but takes on Briar Rose as an alias during the years she spends hiding out from Maleficent.

I had no idea why I didn’t know that, but I didn’t. That said, I’ve also been in a recent habit of thinking of Snow White as Sleeping Beauty. I guess because of the poison apple and all that. But yeah, every time recently that I’ve seen an image of Snow White, I think of Sleeping Beauty instead of Snow White. But I’ll save that nonsense for my Blogger blog.

Now that we’ve part II done, and I’ve bopped over and wrote some shiznit over at my Blogger blog, I can now continue on here at WordPress.

I guess WordPress appears a little quirky to me, because it appears they are trying to automate anything an everything. My guess is, that any time the cursor moves, or anytime that a keypress or some other “on” event happens, they are monitoring the fuck out of what is transpiring.

I’ve noticed that the visual editor does not like hyperlinks where the text is not left-justified. If you center the text/cursor, and THEN insert the/a hyperlink? Whatever you just inserted appears, then disappears, leaving you with only the text. HOWEVER, if you close the editor window/close the post, and then go back into the edit window to edit that same post, the whatever now appears.

I found this out by inadvertently closing the editor window, and when I opened it back up, there were suddenly two iterations of the same video. :-/

I’ve also noticed that WordPress appears not to allow the changing of a font size to two different font sizes on the same line. Maybe that’s a “premium” feature or something.

Not real good at predicting. Just see what I see, same as you or anyone else. Predictive channels remove choice, and certainly reduce choices. We’re already loaded the fuck down with predictive leaders and the streams they originate from and the things they point to. Considering the nature of chance, I guess this is why we sometimes fail in our predictive nature(s).

EX: If you want to know who is going to win best picture.

Welp, wouldn’t that be better stated as “what” is going to win best picture? I mean, which one won with you? What was your favorite? Now explain to me why everyone else should share your opinion. I’ve not seen a one of those flicks, so how in the FUCK can I possibly have an opinion as to which will win?

That’s not where I was going.

Leaders point to which film will win best picture. You now take that information, fly to Vegas or visit your bookie, and lay your money down. So in fact, you wanted to know TWO things…not one.

Such is the nature of nesting and nested.

Such is the nature of embedding and embedded.

They aren’t always the same thing(s). Just depends on your focus(es).

I don’t blame her, and it’s actually not that big of a deal.

I dunno about Roob, but these things are much  more  difficult to write/assemble than it may appear. Lots of thinking and pondering go into these things, and most of them never get written.

WUT?!?!?!?

Yep. Most of these things never actually get written, and most of what actually gets written is only a portion of what accompanies the totality. Lots of information, and lots of data falling through the tumblers of time in order to produce what actually shakes out. It may not appear as such, and I cannot speak for anyone else, but the shit that I ponder tends to be pretty fucking heavy.

I can only imagine that others go through similar.

OK…so…what I thought I would do, is even tho I’ve no readership, I’d pop over here and bop around a little bit to see if the WordPress editor started fucking up for me too.

Ya see, it’s like this…I personally use Blogger currently. However, most of the blogs that I read? Yeah…WORDPRESS BLOGS!!! I hate to break it to you, but if WordPress blogs turn to shit because WordPress bloggers can’t write, edit and post their shit? YEAH!!! I can’t read!!! So if you fucks decide to play one side or the other, meaning choosing your blog users over your blog readership, welp, that can only lead me to believe that you’ve actually chosen neither of those, in favor of yourself/yourselves.

^Fight – Little Crazy^


I personally am still in the contemplative phase as to whether or not to switch to WordPress from Blogger. Me being the wordy fucker that I am, I could prolly do both. I do also have a fuckton of free-time currently, and my interests are non-commercial. I’m just trying to learn how to write/learn how to write better.

Communication(s) and communicating is key. Expressiveness and the ability to accurately express myself is also important. Music and images help me do that. They inspire me. However, were I unable to use these whenever I need them? Or if using them hampered my ability/abilities to write? Welp, say what you want, but I need what I need. Not that I am so narrow minded that I cannot go around, nor that I am somehow opposed to adversity, nor am I ungrateful for the tools available to me. But just because I try to be mindful of these things doesn’t mean that I always am mindful of these things. Not to mention that my being mindful of shit has precisely fuckall to do with anyone else.

Speaking of which, let me pop over to Twitter real quick, and see how my writing partner is doing.

^Knife Party ‘Boss Mode’^


OK…so…popped over to Twitter, and asked her how it was going via Twitter DM, and have heard nothing back yet. That said, when I posted in the link to that video/song above? I noticed the WordPress editor acting a shade…wonky.

Not that I think Twitter and WordPress are battling within my Chrome browser, and also within their own address spaces on my computer…but yeah…it’s exactly that.

For the time being, I have closed the tab running Twitter. That said, I’ve 7 other tabs open, not to mention another separate browser instance of Chrome. So the question becomes…

Q: How are online services dealing with the concept of multi-tasking, all while being so goddamn greedy?

A: ¿?¿¿??¿?

There are only so many hours in a day. In order to keep your numbers up, and consistent, you are going to have to learn to play well with others. Yes, I realize you likely do try and play well with others most of the time. But what about all of this profit based and growth based bullshit. How many metrics and/or dynamics are you prepared to pile on in order to make yourselves and your services more attractive? Cause I don’t care how big, fluffy and comfortable a pillow looks on a bed. If you launch that same pillow out of a cannon, that pillow is no longer fluffy, nor comfortable, and you likely wish now that it wasn’t so goddamn big.

What am I babbling about? Simple….would you rather be hit with 100 lbs of feathers, or 100 lbs of lead? Point being, knives cut. It’s what they do. The more dynamics you add to your metrics, the better likelyhood that they are eventually going to slice you in a way that you don’t like. Are you prepared to deal with that? But more than that, are you prepared to NOT deal with it. Yeah, are you prepared to take it on the chin? I mean, it was fine and dandy when “The Slugger” was slugging in ways that you like. Why is it unacceptable and even unfathomable to think that “The Slugger” will eventually land you in the seat of “the slugged”?

I’m gonna hop back on Twitter real quick and see if she’s responded. But before I do, the scrolling features do not seem to be working within the WordPress edit window, and whenever I insert a hyperlink to a video or image, the auto-tagging feature seems to be causing some grief to the edit window. Methinks that your auto-save timers are fucked up, and may be conflicting somehow with any of your scripts that are doing the backend HTML formatting, and this is somehow not translating well to be WYSIWYG editor upon refresh. Maybe your seekpoistion routines are fucking up. I’d suggest a gander at anything you are doing to find the cursor and or mouse position.

Just seems like something, or several things, are having trouble knowing where they are, where they were, and/or where they should be. /me shrugs

Gotta keep in mind, that someone who is good with a keyboard is likely not going to be using the mouse much, if at all. Once you master the arrow keys and a few hotkeys, the mouse becomes more of the tool it was intended to be. Like…should I mention that the entirety of this writing has been done while I’ll laying on my side in bed? Not trying to get anyone hot and bothered or anything, but I’ve been laying in bed, on my side, trying to help out my friend, by making this post, since she uses WordPress. I’ve been in computers long enough to know, that the best way that I can help her, is by getting in here and getting dirty, and trying to see what she is seeing, and by actually experiencing what she is experiencing. Or at least, as close as I can get.

I’ve not yet gone back to Twitter, but my phone just went off, so she appears to have messaged me…brb.

And yes, she is just about the only person on Earth/Terra that I talk to, so it’s a safe bet that she’s just messaged me on Twitter. 🙂

OK…so…it wasn’t her. It was actually some Welsh dude telling me some bullshit about Welsh profanity. (lolz…seriously)

Anyway, yeah, whenever I insert a video, the page/edit window appears to be scrolling to the previous video. I’ll keep writing and tinkering, and see what happens on the next one. Plus, my phone just dinged again…maybe it’s her.

^Revolting Cocks – Me So Horny^


FUCK!!! Still not her. It was someone answering a question I had asked about “witchy stuff” or whatever it’s called. I’m not big on names in certain contexts, but whatever, it wasn’t my friend that is having difficulty with WordPress.

OK…so…I inserted that RevCo song above, or, inserted the hyperlink into the edit window, and the edit window scrolled up to the previous video…the Manufacture video. But this time, it didn’t scroll as far as it had when I inserted the prior video. (RevCo = Do Ya Think I’m Sexy).

This time when the edit window scrolled, it was more towards the Manufacture video AND the picture below it, because I could see both when the insert and auto-formatting routines appeared to complete…whatever it is that they are doing.

I will say this also…whenever I use hotkeys for formatting…like CTRL+I for italics, or CTRL+B for bold, the edit window appears to have a schism of some kind. Or unkind. Whatever. Point being, there is definitely some battle going on with the visual and manual controls. Or,  maybe that’s secondary and the actual issue is elsewhere. Not that I’m a software developer or anything. Or at least, not anymore I’m not.

So…why wouldn’t I use software development tools to track a software related issue? Simple…how in the FUCK can you get to know your end-user(s), if you never use your own service like they do? Fuck the tools, gadgetry and brains…get your fucking hands dirty, and put yourself through the same grief your users are suffering through. To do any less, is to make you as useless and dumb as they are. You’ve tied your own hands. Smarten-up, by dumbing your smart-ass down. May even gain a little humility along the way. Those dumb-ass end users pay your salary. If you’ll burn one, you’ll burn them all. Just sayin’.

I don’t mind jumping through a few hoops for someone.

That’s just me tho.

Not like it’s gonna get me laid or anything…BUT…I might just be able to help someone out. That’s plenty enough “reward” for me most of the time.

And it is my writing that she’s editing. So…yeah…a shade of motivation exists there for me to help her out any way that I can. 😛

K…after I inserted that video above, the page seemed to go through SEVERAL refresh routines. I’m sure that there is all kinds of crazy implementations that are being used by WordPress. That irritaing-assed menu off to the right-hand side is going to cause me to break out into hives. Yeah…the “Post Settings” one.

I realize there is an “X” there for me to be able to close it, but why is it even there? More than that, if THAT is there, why isn’t there a goddamn save button to be found?

/me shrugs
