Consider Exiting Social Media [SMExit]

Consider that it might be a good idea for *YOU* to receive psychotherapy simply because you watched someone get perforated yesterday.

Social Media May Not Be For You

The events of the past couple of days have prompted me to suggest to you that perhaps you shouldn’t be involved with social media.. At All.. And maybe you’d be better off and happier in your own little world where you don’t know anything that goes on in the rest of the world.

I started thinking about this yesterday.

Yesterday, I accidentally watched a video of a man being murdered where you can see that he isn’t dead yet, but he will be soon, and his chest is gushing blood from where the bullets perforated his body.

In fact, I should say I accidentally watched *MOST* of that video because I stopped watching it after I realized the person had filmed everything perfectly and I had already seen more than I had intended to. Continue reading “Consider Exiting Social Media [SMExit]”

Internet Blog-Influenced News Cycles

According to klout.com/BillCammack, I’m a “Broadcaster”.. To them, that means “You broadcast great content that spreads like wildfire. You are an essential information source in your industry. You have a large and diverse audience that values your content.”

I mention that because I’m glad they changed my category from “Pundit”. Pundits get on my last nerve. 😀

I didn’t have anything against pundits before a few months ago when I started following the Republican debates to see whether they were going to field a viable team to potentially defeat President Obama in 2012.

The problem I have with them now isn’t really their fault, but they have to deal with a new development in television broadcasting which I call “Internet Blog-Influenced News Cycles”. Continue reading “Internet Blog-Influenced News Cycles”

#NOBLOG Status (Plausible Deniability)

Back in 2008, I wrote the Guide To Dating The “Internet Famous”.

Fast-Forward to 2010, and “Things done got too far gone!” 😀

At this point, EVERYBODY has a smartphone, EVERYBODY is uploading media to the net and EVERYBODY’S business is in the streets.

Fortunately for all of us, Chrissie B. and Tim K.-S. co-created #NOBLOG status!!! >:D Continue reading “#NOBLOG Status (Plausible Deniability)”

Revisionist History

What I affectionately refer to as “Revisionist History” may actually be more accurately called Historical Revisionism. There are actually two types, one which has a positive connotation and implies that intelligent people took another look at the data that’s currently available to them and came up with a valid interpretation of that data that differs from what’s been widely accepted about that event up until now. The second type is when people decide they don’t like how the past looks and decide to reinterptet it for their own benefit. The latter is what I want to talk about right now.

Bill Skate NYC ep006 - Paul L. McDermott RinkTime goes forward… Not BACKWARD. Things happen and then they move from the present into the past. Once they’re in the past, there’s no way for you to affect them, being that nobody’s created a time machine yet. If you tell a story ONE WAY at the time, and then turn around and tell a DIFFERENT STORY later on.. Assuming you had your wits about you when you told the story the first time, you are attempting to revise history. Here’s an example:

Back in the day….. (right, Frank?) I used to hang out with this chick that had a boyfriend and she would lie to him all the time about what she had done or where she had been for the last several hours while she wasn’t answering her phone. I didn’t think anything of this becuase that’s what people do when they’re in a relationship and they don’t want to suffer the consequences of their SO knowing who they really are.. They lie. Fine. I get that. Continue reading “Revisionist History”

Dating is like Asians on Television

Asians In Manhattan

Please don’t ask me what’s going on in this picture. Thank you very much. Moving right along….. 😀

There are A LOT of Asians in Manhattan, NYC. However, if your “understanding” of Manhattan comes from watching television or films, you’d probably assume that there weren’t any at all.

I don’t know anything about the casting industry, but it pretty much seems that unless someone writes elements specifically attributed to Asians (and we all know what THOSE are) into a show, you’re not going to see any Asian brothaz headlining American films unless they blow up large, like Chow Yun-Fat.

I was actually expecting to see another one of my favorites, Tony Leung show up on the scene, but that’s not really the point I wanted to make. Continue reading “Dating is like Asians on Television”
