In Moot Member Blogs Doris Day Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #543 New May 13th, 2019 07:44 PM
I'm told miss Doris Day passed away recently. I was not a big fan of hers, but she did come across as a kind of mainstay icon of white America. Idealized in many ways for her virginesque rolls in sex comedies that had everything but sex, just romantic tension.

I didn't like her singing, I thought most of the rolls she was in were two cards shy of being just vapid, and where I admire anyone who can express themselves with talent, I just couldn't get into her nor her films, though I saw quite ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs complaint filed Entry Tools Rate This Entry

The mother of all complaints fired off today to the feds. Posting and bragging about it will probably make things go wrong or get me into trouble somehow, as has so often in the past, but it's who I am, and I expect big things from this.

I'm way just too way angry to write. Everytime I try to relax on a game server, some POS affiliated with the family trolls my game, so I'm through doing sh!t for anyone save for current obligations.

Eh, an okay series with a lot of unnecessary "cinema verite" using shaky cam and otherwise faux documentary hand held shot crap. The very stuff I truly hate about today's media. And, in fact, the reason I turned off my TV, discontinued cable, and otherwise just tuned out of mass media altogether.

Ironically enough there's quite a few Star Trek references in it, more thematic and occasionally mentioned audibly, but otherwise they're there. Even so, given the stylings of the presentation I ...More Read More

Five games in a row trolled on Steam. I've filed more reports for what good it'll do.

In Moot Member Blogs Robert Howard revisted Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #538 New May 11th, 2019 09:15 AM
I've wondered why Robert Howard took his own life. After reading all the material out there, seeing "The Whole Wide World", understanding his eccentricities, and everything else about him, I think he simply couldn't take life's barbs anymore, and perhaps wanted to follow his mother into the "hereafter".

As a human being as well as an atheist, I find it simply tragic and, to put it in Spockanian English, "regrettable". He strikes me as a man who had seen a lot of injustice that came to hi ...More Read More

Part of the reason I've really turned against visual media is that there's a lot of cliché stuff, and there's a lot of self important presentations of media believing they were changing society by doing media with the right criteria of showing everyone getting along.

So what you get are visual offerings that are layered with multiple message inputs. And for those of us who already get and understand whatever message is being put forth in media, you get tired of it. It goes beyond being fo ...More Read More

  #536 New May 8th, 2019 07:46 AM
This show has everything I hate about today's media, and even though it's ten years old or so, to me, it's a fit example of why I trash today's films.

It's a diverse multi-sex interracial cast with a white guy as the team leader. Meh, if you're going to cast in the trend set by classic 1960's Star Trek, then make the people real. As it stands now each has hidden talents and excels in everything, as well as, to me at least, making it a point of using put downs to show how human, witty, clev ...More Read More

Apparently my mother's personal guard doesn't like my playing Age of Empires 2. I already fired off an official complaint to the DOJ's IC3, and they appear to be on top of the matter, though being harassed online in a game doesn't have top priority. What comes from that probably is of interest.

People harassing me are usually from Mexico, India or South America (Brazil).

In Moot Member Blogs Honor Harrington chemical bonds Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #534 New May 5th, 2019 07:18 PM
In the second Honor Harrington book the narrative describes that horror and shock that Harrington and her crew and compliment express as they witness "old fashioned welding" used by the religious decedents of colonists centuries before.

The book goes onto describe chemical welding and bonding as being more advanced.

Hmm.

Well, my material science instructor and chemistry professors might differ in that opinion, and any one of you readers of my blog, if you have any other insight, I w ...More Read More
