Expo, Springsteen, Surgery, Electric Avenue

Monday I went to a disability product expo. I mainly looked at standing wheelchairs, hopefully I will be trialing one within three months. I also saw a home automation system, but suddenly decided to build one myself! This has been on my to do list for years but I have never had the motivation to start. Also I have been working on other things such as building navigation, word prediction and PC accessibility software. The first two are very close to commercialization so I can fit in a small home automation project. Another company is ordering the equipment for me, so the process has started.

Tuesday I saw Bruce Springsteen, overrated, sorry! Actually not sorry. I know he's like David Bowie to some people, I assume. And people are just so mental for celebrities. I would have enjoyed the concert much more if each song didn't take ten minutes each with the same bits over and over again. I think that I enjoyed the food more. I think if he did your standard three minute songs the show would have been miles better. The last five songs were decent though.

Wednesday I had dental surgery and need to have more next month, inconvenient, slightly painful so far but hopefully it will be best in the short term. I never get morphine, I want morphine! I should get it as a reward. What is the point of an operation if you can't have some fun? I know health blah blah blah. Give me the morphine!

Saturday I went to the Electric Avenue festival, generally enjoyed it, wasn't drunk enough, then again when you occasionally get insomnia you appreciate having a reliable sleep much more. I kept waking up, but was OK. I forgot how stupid people are. One came up and started blathering and then said there was a bunch of weird people there. I thought "I KNOW", her saying that was really ironic. Headed to the other end. Manage to find another annoying person who kept asking my age, by the end I just said a different number to amuse myself. Ran away from her too. This other fucker was touching my bag, police moved him along. Someone wanted me to point to the letter Q for some reason, idiot! People spelt out my name, as if I didn't know how to spell it. Someone give me a TV show (sitcom) so I can make fun of these idiots.

Concert, Paralympics, Wildfires

Thursday I went to the B52's and Simple Minds concert, enjoyed both. Never heard of Simple Minds; quite a different type of music than the B52's but pleasantly surprised.

Saturday I went to the Paralympics Open Day. I wanted to enquire about covering them for 2020. Planning to go as disability media. Hopefully by that time I will be rich from technology and can afford to go! I may as well use my disability to travel by building technology and media businesses around it. Of course all disability all the time is not going to be sustainable for my interest. so I have other technology business interests and music projects.

Christchurch has had earthquakes, flooding and now massive wildfires. They're mostly away from the city so that's something. What I am wondering if this will increase in frequency due to global warming and what land changes can be made to counter this? For a city named "Christchurch" it does seem like God's dumping ground. I am an atheist, just making an observation. At minimum there should be an education campaign surrounding cigarettes butts etc.

Birthday, Sleeping, Orange Buffoon, Comedy

Thursday I went to a birthday, I would rank the place as "Technically Accessible". You practically have to do an obstacle course to get in. I didn't eat. I was on my tablet but engage in conversation.

I have mostly cured my sleeping problem; it's nothing like a month ago. Thinking of nothing throughout the day for a few seconds each helps. Also i listen to the majority of my news commentary shows at twice normal speaking rate in the morning and early afternoon. The downside is I listen to music much less. However I'm learning to create my own music so that's good.

I am in two minds about the Orange Buffoon. On one hand I find him hilarious. On the other, I'm sick of him. It's rare that I open Facebook without seeing a post about him. My YouTube news have half their stories about him. I'll be very glad when this fucker gets impeached or quits.

I have a new idea for comedy that I'm probably going to try but not for months since I need to finish and commercialize some products. In short it's about building a separate comedy brand without human performers.

Start of Auckland concerts

Friday I went to Auckland for a concert, supposed to be 4 bands but only 3 performed. I saw Liberty X, Atomic Kitten and B Witched. OK view despite being at the back. Atomic Kitten had a member missing so it happy had a fill in,. Technically not what i paid for but I had a great time. After seeing people with disabilities who did not have the ability to dance to music; I was grateful that I had the ability to move and dance. Another thing that was amazing was that I thought of a song earlier in the day that I didn't have in my playlist and it was the first song the DJ played.

Saturday I basically wrote five blogs and fire alarm went off, twice.

Sunday I went home. The internet sucked, I couldn't go on YouTube and apparently it expired today despite having to fill in a long form just to signup, this took an hour. Apparently I can't use the information again, fuck that!

Projects, Orange Baffoon, People Power, Social Enterprises

Having a three day weekend next week, working today.

I am now able to make a beat with my music production software. Need to learn more skills!

Programming wise I'm making more tools to automatically change programming code itself, it's important to get code up to standard and sometimes you have tens of thousands lines of code so automation is your friend, unless it takes your job.

People are worried that robots will take over. However something has already taken over; they're called corporations. Governments don't listen to regular people anymore, 90% percent of the time they listen to rich and corporations. The invasion is here and began decades ago. The orange baffoon will put this on steroids.

From now on I won't mention the US President by name; the entire point of his campaign was in part to get publicity. I won't feed this unless absolutely necessary. He is the orange baffoon from now on.

I talked last week on NP about people power, there's still some victories here and there. Maybe the answer is to start social enterprises in the big corporation's own fields to counter the corporations; they could even fund or buy politicians. I understand that this wouldn't be easy, and will take some dedicated people and funding to start. This could possibly be a good way people could regain some power.

I have ideas for social enterprises, though not in the way I just described. I am focusing on commercialization of existing products but could possibly start in that area eventually, one idea is fairly simple.

Music, Sleeping, Debates, Wheelchair, Trump

I purchased music creation software, I have no idea how to use music creation software! I'll learn and learned what some windows do. Unable to make a beat yet. The problem with YouTube tutorials is they don't use the default sounds so I probably need to download some packs in the tutorials. What a fuck around! Having no idea how to do things is not rare for me in work. Nobody taught me how to make websites or create Windows applications. I just did shit until I was successful. I expect music creation will be the same. I have said before I'm keen to produce for others rather than anything else.

Slept OK since Tuesday except Friday night. 4-5 hours instead of 2-1-0 regularly before then. I think thinking of nothing regularly helps, especially in bed. Not having stupid Facebook debates at night also helped.

If I dislike debating, and insulting people stop debates. Theoretically this gives me an incentive to insult people and I can quickly get back to programming instead of wasting time on pointless facebook debates. I don't do this, but there is certainly a perverse incentive there. I tend to avoid debates about Trump; there is no point; either that or I have started saying things just to confuse his supporters, just for my own entertainment really. I really need to avoid Facebook debates all together. I really don't have time to waste on people emotionally attached to their beliefs and can't objectively analyze; that's most people debating politics/religion.

I have started the process to get a new electric wheelchair; I am hoping for one that stands or reclines as changing positions occasionally will be better for my back.

Trump is officially president of the USA. See, I told you 2017 will be worse than 2016

Posting, Progressive News, Breaks

Posting today because I haven't slept for more than 2 hours since Saturday, slept for about 3-4 hours last night. Trying to think of nothing more. Not initially working, but maybe in time. Can go for longer periods without thinking of of anything.

What's on my mind lately? I am wondering what the psychological impact of getting news from progressive YouTube channels that frequently call people stupid, idiots, losers etc. If the 6PM news did this on a daily basis society would probably behave differently. I'll expand on this on my upcoming psychology blog. Perhaps some aspects of progressive media can be harmful even though they're right on the facts and issues. Calling people stupid is a shit way to reach them, this was my frustration at the NZ left after the 2014 election, some hauled insults and I was thinking if you want people on your side, don't do that!

Recently I've learnt taking breaks during the work day is a good thing. For every 54 minutes you should take 17 off to recharge your brain. I kind of already did this but would work an hour extra, sometimes two to make up time. I'll probably stop doing that, or just work for 8.5 hours instead of 9, there was a period last year which I worked 10. As a future employer the break information is good to know; and what employees do is not a concern, they can do whatever in private if necessary. I have come to the conclusion that many corporations are also stupid. Collectively they pay their workers fuck all which effects their local sales. Some risk their safety which can cost them productivity. Honestly I used to want a more right leaning business manager but if their ideas are stupid and cost me long term profits and employee productivity; their ideas can fuck off. My corporation will not be stupid.

TV, accessibility software, 2016, sleeping

UKTV is no longer showing New Tricks on weekdays, so I have decided to try and binge watch shows on the weekend. Starting with the last season of House. Next will be the latest seasons of Bones. CSI Cyber looked interesting, but apparently it's a terrible show. Might watch Braindead too, the only other current shows I like are Blacklist and Major Crimes. A few seasons of The Closer might be good to watch, maybe The Practice eventually. Episodes take 30 minutes at 1.5x speed so you can get through a full season in a weekend, one day if you're dedicated; I'm not! I am doing spare time projects while watching, I still don't have a brand name for my event listing software.

I am developing eye tracking software (on and off) though it has occurred to me there could be smaller and more unique accessibility products I can develop. If anyone has ideas I'd love to hear from you. I can do everything from PC accessibility software to building navigation systems.

I also want to do a blog dedicated to psychology and technology starting next month or whenever the fuck I get around to it. I need to resume my disability blogs, just have been busy on building navigation software so blogging has taken a back seat. Technology and psychology are my main interests, politics too but I already regularly blog about that, at least American politics though politics has become a soap opera and more recently an absolute shit show, still fun to blog about.

2016 was a good year, though boring in terms of trips, not drugs, though pretty fucking boring in that regard too. Only went overseas once, and to Australia. But scored, I think. Any trip I score is a good trip; again not drugs! I said I think, six months is too far away to remember random hookups off the top of my head. To the people I've banged, apparently you're not that memorable. Anyway I saw Madonna, Vengaboys, Joanne, Josh Groban, Nelly, and others. Vengaboys sucked. A year shouldn't be valued on how many celebrities died, it should be valued on how much sex you have, or if not that definitely not fucking celebrity deaths. A good indicator for me would be technological advances. I am pleased with my building navigation work and my event listing software, can't wait to market these more.

Only had 30 minutes sleep last night, apparently binge watching is bad when you have insomnia, this is my conclusion anyway. Will do my morning idea instead. Working today and perhaps will have a day off tomorrow, will write a NP blog then too.

Facebook, 2017, Sleeping

Can people stop posting death notices on Facebook? I couldn't care less about your thoughts about random dead celebrities. If I wanted to read obituaries constantly I'd read the newspaper. I can handle once every three months, but it has become an avalanche of death every four days. It's like Facebook has been taken over by the under taker. ObituaryBook! I like to read things that is unique and interesting. I have no desire to read the same thing over and over; that's just incredibly boring and the reason I avoid the news feed on holidays. Why do they call it the News Feed? People rambling about their lives is not news. I made a chicken salad, I don't give a fuck!

2017, this year is probably going to suck until I launch more products, then maybe I'll fuck off to Auckland! I haven't launched my music website; I'll do that this year; I've just been developing more features for it like DJ output for phones, venue specials and next is allowing goers to post pictures and YouTube videos of the event if enabled. Due to financial circumstances I am probably going to hold off on more creative projects and probably hold off my holiday planned for February. I'll probably do music creation in spare time starting February. I am not going to be as free until I make changes to ensure I can be. Next year is inconvenient but it's time for some changes. It's time to transition, not in a trans way.

Sleeping patterns continue to be questionable so I am working today and taking tomorrow off. I know it's technically holidays, but fuck holidays I have stuff to do.

Cathedral rant

Some people prefer Merry Christmas, some people prefer Happy Holidays, I prefer fuck it I'm getting drunk.

So random rant on the cathedral, it's Christmas! You're getting a Christmas themed rant! Religion has something to do with Christmas. I am not a fan of the Cathedral but respect many people in Christchurch want it rebuilt. I am not a traditionalist, tradition in the past has been used to justify slavery and homophobia. We have to defend traditional marriage. We can't let women vote because it's always been this way. The tradition argument is intellectually bankrupt. You only argue tradition when you don't have anything else. I am also hating on tradition because people use it to defend the Electoral College. You are a particularly stupid person if you use it in that case because at least with a cathedral I understand people have an emotional attachment to the building and the overall identity to Christchurch. I am however the least sentimental guy that you would ever meet. I would rather do a more modern futuristic building, sorry! The fact is spending millions of dollars on a building is not consistent with the teachings of Jesus; he said that you should give to the poor. You cannot argue that a flashy building is something that Jesus would want. You could argue for a reasonable building to help the community. The Cathedral was built at a time where religion was much more relevant, it's less so now. All signs point to religion fading. Again I endorse the popular view even though I strongly disagree with the popular view. I expect that the Cathedral will be rebuilt, eventually! They still haven't made final plans. Ludicrous!
