DC Streaming Service

DC Comics revealed they’ve created a streaming service for their content at https://dcuniverse.com.

Although I no longer buy the Big Two comics, I think this is a great evolutionary step for the publisher. WWE did it with their wrestling library content. CBS is doing a good job with it when they made Star Trek their exclusive content.

Machine Language

Some of my sites had a 403 forbidden error. I spent most of last night doing research on how to fix the issue. The blog that I read was complicated. Thankfully my hosting company was able to answer my questions IN PLAIN HUMAN ENGLISH!

I think coders type out complicated answers to solutions on purpose to flaunt their knowledge. I hope that when I become a coder, I remember to keep my answers simple and concise.

Good Day!

Today is a good day! I am feeling really positive. I don’t blog about that enough.
I got most of King-Web dismantled and reassigned. All that is left is to migrate Rose City.net and figure out some wacky login issues. I am ready to start experimenting with new CMS.

Big Deal…

So Trump is yet again caught in a lie. He’s a crap individual who surrounds himself with rotten people. No one is going to do anything about it. Why are the people who can do something extremely ineffectual? All they are doing is pointing fingers. This sucks.

Michelle Wolf

Michelle Wolf’s humor is not my cup of tea. She wasn’t my favorite person to listen to on the Daily Show. However, I’m not going to jump on the media bandwagon just because I don’t like her humor. She went to the White House Correspondents Dinner and told some harsh truths: The media create Donald Trump, the Democrats are ineffective and the Presidency is about lying liars who spend their time lying.

And oh boy, the news media is really trying hard to push the narrative that Ms. Wolf is a vulgar person who just says horrible things. I watched the 19 minutes C-Span roast she did. I think this comment may have made mainstream journalists upset:

“You guys are obsessed with Trump. Did you used to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him, but I think you love him. I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn’t sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric, but he has helped you.”

“He’s helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster, and now you’re profiting off of him. And if you’re gonna profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money because he doesn’t have any.”

Michelle Wolfe

True. The Media has overtly sensationalized everything. Like “Look, Trump is going mad again on Twitter! Let’s all look!” I mean… yeah, Trump’s Twitter feed is a joke. This is not a mature man but an old overgrown child who fail upwards.

Michelle Wolf may also under fire from CNN for this comment:

“We’ve got our friends at CNN here. Welcome guys, it’s great to have you. You guys love breaking news, and you did it, you broke it! Good work!”

CNN is the worst. It is not one of my trusted sources. To get any objective media concerning the U.S., I have to visit outside media outlets like the BBC or Al Jazeera. Heck… the subs on Reddit and my own Twitter feed is more reliable than CNN.

I think, in summary, that we cannot trust the news. Ms. Wolf, I believe, is under fire not for her comments about White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ eye makeup, but for her comments that the news media is the responsible for our political chaos. Amercian Journalism cannot be trusted to tell the truth.

New York Advice

When I was a teenager I worked at a Burger King in Connecticut. There was an older man who’d come in, Tom Paris. He was a retiree from New York. He would come in and spend his playing scratch off. I thought he was worth listening to because he was from New York and knew a lot of stuff.

One day he said, “The worst thing that can happen to someone is to be forgotten.” He talked on about how everyone should strive to be something. It made an impact on how I judged myself.

After a few decades, I’ve decided he was wrong. The worst thing that can happen to someone is being unhappy and not at peace.

Pandora’s Box

When I read articles like this, https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-42920554, it reinforces my belief that the collective humanity should not be connected. It is like the tower of Babel. However, it is too late and even if humanity wanted to it cannot change our interconnectivity.

Sometimes it is difficult to know that not everyone strives to be the best person they can be. Sometimes some people only live to behave like animals.
