Here's an example of what I'm talking about;

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/personalfinance/is-kate-middleton-richer-than-meghan-markle/ar-AAuNJnC?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp

Do I really need to know this?

Is this really pertinent to everyday life?

How does this challenge us as a society?

I feel a princess Jane story coming on......

So, I click on the "Lifestyle" tab on my Yahoo homepage. I have no idea what it's about, but I'm thinking it deals with leisure stuff. Maybe a combination of the old socialite articles of whom the rich and famous are dating and what they're doing and what there is to do around the area.

But, no. It's mostly female stuff. I mean as of yesterday the first story was something about makeup, and as I scrolled down the list of articles it was essentially stories about breakups, marri ...More Read More

So, I'm getting really pissed off at click bait articles; i.e. the "thing-X that destroyed the internet" kind of bullsh_t headline that I so often read on my news feed.

And apparently the internet thinks I'm an African American woman with ties to India. I get ads for things Indian (and I don't mean native American) on my popup ads, articles and commercials featuring African Americans buying cars, shaving or whatever.... and just a host of stuff that doesn't pertain to me.

For the record, ...More Read More

I dumped MacAfee, as Blackbat pointed out, it was a spam magnet, and that period when I could only log onto one CSSource game server, I now blame on MacAfee.

I'm also going Chrome free as of five minutes ago. The last several weeks the browser has been hanging. It was supposed to be faster than MS Edge or Explorer, but doesn't have the horses to do much of anything anymore.

MS Edge is lightening fast .... of course, now that I've announced that here on this forum watch my luck with ...More Read More

I just finished off a 3v3 Forest Prison game for Age of Empires 2, running a mod that did not allow siege onagers to be used to clear forest tiles. For those of you not in the know, you can normally only clear forests with villagers chopping down trees, at which point you get the benefit of wood to use to build things or make certain kinds of troops.

Siege onagers, an upgraded catapult, can hurl extra large rocks that cut down said trees. And a Forest Prison map is where your entire town ...More Read More

So, I haven't seen the latest SW film, and I'm thinking I'm not going to.

Many reasons, I won't go into them all. Like I've said many times, I'm not a SW fan, and given the bad experience I had down in Los Angeles some months back and given that I understand what that was all about now, and given that person involved had Disney connections, I think I can safely say that I'm done with Star Wars.

Like with all things in life, you get tired of something and move on. Collecting bottle caps, ...More Read More

One of the reasons I quit film and video was the enormous amount of lying that went on everywhere. Whether it was actors saying their lines in front of the camera, telling tall tales between takes, or the production team lying to one another, hiding the drug use, and just kind of the whole culture of deception and ego regarding about who could be more deceitful and who was trying to convince others that their line of bullsh_t was actually real and happened to them. It really rubbed me raw.

A thought occurred to me when thinking about my last web log entry for this site, and that is the nation, as it stood when it was first founded, was rowdy but also had a kind of reserve to it.

When I think of fascist movements in Germany, Spain, Italy, and even the "modernized" Shogunate in 19th and 20th century Japan, I think of societies that either had a tradition of being conformist, or whose people existed out of fear of the overlord governments.

The US really isn't like that. So ...More Read More

One of my beefs with movies and mass media as a whole is that Hollywood really treats everyone as if we're all potential genocidal racists waiting to burst forth.

George Lucas first Star Wars film, to me, is a pretty good simple adventure story told in "outer space", so to speak. But, being a little older, a little wiser, having been exposed to a lot of psychology via parents, their friends, and the tribulations I went through over the last decade plus, I see Star Wars for the social psyc ...More Read More

Joe Haldeman was asked by Bantam Books way back in the 70's to pen a Star Trek novel.

http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/World_Without_End

So, a couple decades or more pass, and Ken Follett authors his book with the same title. When the film was being made I chided (with tongue in cheek) that there was no Kirk, no Spock and no U.S.S. Enterprise in Follett's book. How could he so blatantly write a Star Trek novel without including the main characters?

Well, when the IMDB forums were s ...More Read More
