From The Eye — Berry v. Heh

Today, I received the following from those behind the Eye on Albuquerque blog in response to my piece “Walking with Richard Berry? Nope!”

——– Original Message ——–
Subject: Berry v. Heh
Date: Sat, 17 Aug 2013 07:52:56 -0600
From: The Eye on Albuquerque
To: Mike Blessing

Good Morning Sir,

We are completely disgusted with Berry. Yes, he has an “R” by his name but we all know he is the wolf in sheep clothing. He is more Obama than Nancy Pelosi. Berry is a complete embarrassment to any Republican.

Heh is a true conservative Republican. That is why we decided to support him.

Dinelli is pro-abortion and pro-everything that is against moral values.

Heh is the only choice we see in this race. Heh does not have a big war chest of money like Berry and Dinelli. Heh has to rely on a grassroots type campaign, social media and others getting the word out there…

We will continue to show how corrupt Berry and ALL of his Administration is when we have proof.

Thank you for your email.

Respectfully,
The Eye

[OKCupid] Not much commentary here?

Filed under: Administrivia, Life, Media, Networking, Social Life — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 12:40 AM (00:40)

Yeah, I probably should post here a bit more.

My main blog is where I post most things these days.

Most of what I write on other sites eventually ends up mirrored there, too.

Blogging at Medium?

Filed under: Administrivia, Networking — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 12:06 AM (00:06)

 

A few months ago, I heard about and registered with a new netowrking and blogging service called Medium, established by Evan Williams, one of the creators of Twitter. More recently, I received a “beta invite” from the site admins to start posting blog material there. So here’s my first go-round there (text copied below).

Giving Medium a Try

Time to kick the tires, take it for a spin.

At present, I’m blogging at WordPress. Recently I received an email invite to blog here.

So let’s see how it goes, OK?

My Medium site

I Write Like . . .

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 4:46 PM (16:46)

Current mood: pensive

I first found this site after reading through the random postings of friends there — J. Neil Schulman had posted a link to the I Write Like site.

After pasting the text of al-Qaeda At It Again?! Ha Ha, I found out that I write (type, actually) like Kurt Vonnegut.

I write like
Kurt Vonnegut

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!


Not really being a fan of Vonnegut, I tried again, to see where the algorithm would take me. Pasting in the text of Bring It On, Al-Qaeda!, I discovered that I write like Cory Doctorow

I write like
Cory Doctorow

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!


Trying a couple of other articles, the program came back with Doctorow again. Not sure if this is good or bad — Doctorow was recommended to me by one of my professors at CNM, but I haven’t had the chance to read ony of his stuff yet.

Albuquerque On The Cheap

Albuquerque On The Cheap
I signed up with this project started by Tom Knapp after he posted a link on his blog to St. Louis On The Cheap, a project he started featuring inexpensive travelers’ amenities in St. Louis, Missouri for attendees to the 2010 Libertarian Party National Convention.

Negative eProps?

Filed under: Blogging / Writing, Life — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:36 PM (20:36)

Current mood: cynical

Today, I saw this posting on Xanga’s “group blog” sub-site Mancouch.com titled “White Parents Need to Beat Their Kids.”

My comment in response was to question the propriety of Peters’ apparent double standard towards racism.

Then some asswipe posts an attempt at a reply

I hope you saw the video and realized that it’s a thing called comedy, words by Russell Peters.

But I’m digressing here. Apologies.

Sometimes just ignoring a stupid posting isn’t sufficient. Really bad ideas need to be stomped out. Bad ideas cry out to be stomped flat.

NO, I;m not calling for any sort of censorship here, whether it’s done by the site host or mandated in the halls of various legislative bodies. I’ll leave that idiocy for lesser minds.

Still, bad ideas need to be called on the carpet for what they are — memetic dead ends. Epistemological road washouts.

My Tao of Blogging

Filed under: Humor, Life, Philosophy, Reading — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 5:27 PM (17:27)

Current mood: cranky

How many different blog services are out there?! So far, I’m on Yahoo, but I haven’t used that one much at all because Yahoo! 360 sucks. Myspace [1] is my default one right now, and while I do have a LiveJournal one, I haven’t used it much. I do maintain a Yahoo email list as an email blog, which works really well for me.

Usually when I set one up, I leave the appearance settings alone — white background, black text, etc. I know that some may consider it “boring,” but so what? I was on dial-up[2] for what seems like forever, and all of the stuff that people think looks “hot” (I think it looks like shit) eats up download time like crazy for those of us on dial-up. Y’all know what I’m talking about — the multi-colored / graphic / backgrounds, the animated stuff, the videos that start playing as the page is loading, etc., etc.

Then there’s the morons who put up a page where the text is the same color as the backgrounds. That kind of stupidity deserves its own paragraph. What can I say about them that isn’t self-evident?

Other thoughts: I have NO sympathy for those that use “text lingo” in their blog posts and web pages, etc. I can put up with stuff like “lol” “ty” “how r u” “yw” in email messages (I’m guilty of that myself a bit!  and while chatting (especially in chat rooms), but for blogs and websites?! Give me a break!

I’m not at all impressed with those who swear all the time, especially those who drop “F-bombs” like a B-52 carpet-bombing North Vietnam. C’mon folks — the more you use profanity, the less effect it has each time you use it. Especially the word “fuck” (which I agree is extremely versatile).

The absolute worst are the people who TyPe LiKe ThIs — WhAt Is ThE FuCkInG PoInT of that?

Finally, would it really do any harm for all of these people to learn some modicum of spelling, grammar, or capitalization — you know, proper English? (ALL-CAPS and all-lower-case gets old in five minutes. PLEASE learn to use the [Shift] key. For me? Please?)


NOTES

  1. This was originally written in October, 2006 — I’ve since switched to blogging here.
  2. I was on dial-up from 1988 until the middle of 2005, and I never got close to 56K on Zianet — I was lucky to get 28.8K – usually I got 24-26K. Flashnet (since bought out by Prodigy, last I heard), NMIA and Qwest (before their internet service was taken over by MSN) were about the same. GRRRR. If you’re paying for 56K, then you should get 56K (or at least close to 56K). Prodigy and Compuserve were trash too, but that was the days before the web and inter-ISP email. Compuserve once changed the dialing number without telling me, and also changed my password without telling me. Nice job, people! Earthlink insisted that I use their proprietary browser and email client. Luckily, I had all of my bookmarks and email backed up. So far, I have no complaints about Comcast’s service — most of the problems I have there concern the wireless connection between this laptop and the router that’s connected to the cable modem.

What Was I Arrested For?

Filed under: Fun, Humor, Quizzes / Surveys — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:37 PM (15:37)

Current mood: amused

Ok, find out how you will be arrested, the Google way.

Go to Google, type “(your FIRST name) was arrested for” and see what you got sent to the slammer for. Remember to use the quotation marks! Stick your result below . . .

76. Mike was arrested for a lot of things — DWI, drugs, guns, B&E, rape, forgery, burglary, public indecency, burglary, theft, drunk & disorderly, traffic tickets, murder, grafitti, theft, trespassing, attempted assassination, political crimes. (Ten points for style (See Walter Jon Williams’ Divertimenti books for that reference!) to the person who guesses which of these comes closest to the truth.)

75. Katie was arrested for stealing bike tickets.

That isn’t the half of it. Seems that Katie has her bad side, too.

74. Miguel was arrested for playing traditional folk music. — Dammit, there go my chances of becoming president. 😛

73. “Charity was arrested for the bombing of the Egyptian embassy”…. AHAHAHA

72. “Beau was arrested for attempted murder, vehicular homicide, and man slaughter”

71. Michael was arrested for “Ulawfully restraining a girl, preforming a lewd act in a public restroom, corporate espionage, and Angel’s murder.” I been busy.

70. Tiffany was arrested for a felony unlawful mischief charge a couple of years ago. She and three others were charged. They spray painted graffiti on a bridge. lol….. you know me im such the little hoodlum..lol

69. Ryan was arrested for stealing underwear from the Black Flag store in January…

68. Jen was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer

67. Mike was arrested for his anti-fascist activities on at least two occasions.

666. Bob was arrested for stealing bundles of copper wire and bits of brass and aluminum from a scrap yard in October 1994, six months after his 18th birthday ….Sounds like something I would do.

65. Chris was arrested for trying to blackmail a state senator in Arizona

64. Arthur was arrested for “conspiring to violate the National Prohibition Act.”

63. Michelle was arrested for welfare fraud. (I keep telling you people Im broke!)

62. Chloe was arrested for plotting and meticulously carrying out the brutal slayings of 61 bored myspace bulletin abusers……………..dicks.

61. Googling Unk came up with nothing so I went with my real name. “Brianw as arrested for a first degree murder in January 1987.”

60. “Daniel was arrested for doing nothing more than standing on the sidewalk.” It was self-defense.

[ Numbers 1-59 snipped because I don’t have the patience to repost them here. — MWB ]

Cleaning out, updating, and a note of thanks

Filed under: Administrivia, Friends, Life — Tags: — mikewb1971 @ 6:20 PM (18:20)

Recently, I’ve been cleaning out my blog here, deleting the posts that aren’t relevant any more, have outdated information, that sort of thing. The ones that are still relevant will end up getting reposted, only this time, I’ll save the URL link, and create a TinyURL link for each one so I can refer to it and repost it in other forums as needed.

Anyway, in the middle of this, I’ve been chatting with someone special, someone I’ve come to care a good bit about in the last two years, and she made me realize that I do have a bit of a wild side, which is something thatI had never thought of until this weekend. (See these files and my Passion.com blog for details. You had better be over 18. So says government.)

I’m definitely game for seeing more of her, as she also helped me to realize that my political side is something of an outgrowth of some things that happened to me during my adolescence. I don’t know how to thank her for this, but look forward to doing my best.

Above, where it says “create a .. link,” it was supposed to have the link for the .. site — w w w (dot) t i n y u r l (dot) c o m (take out the spaces and replace the “(dot)” with “.” to have a working URL), as the Myspace system nukes redirect links created at .. — just like it nukes the pound sign in URLs (the “tic-tac-toe” symbol), and turns any link that does survive into a “msplinks.com” redirect — all to stop the spammers.

And it hasn’t worked in the slightest.

Fuckin’ A — it even removes the word t i n y u r l

Here it is again — just to piss ’em off —

w w w (dot) t i n y u r l (dot) c o m
