Concerts, Project ADHD, Mad Computer Scientist

 
Sunday I went to Auckland for a concert. Enjoyed Kelis and Ne-Yo. Saw a bit of Sean Paul, had to leave early because I had something else to do. There was only one really crap act who seemed to be getting off on telling the crowd what to do. I generally don't like acts doing this. "Put your hands up in the air" If I wanted to pay for someone to tell me what to do I'd hire a BDSM hooker. Yes I get it's concert culture blah blah blah, clearly not my thing. If I am paying you should be my puppet.

Monday I went home, short but good trip.

I think my project ADHD has hit crisis point. I want to do too many things. Just this week I resumed eye tracking development and researched how to build a SMS application. I have been talking about launching a music site for about a year, never get around to it. It's also tempting to presue similar faces technology and super resolution technology for video. Before that I am developing laughter analysis software to score jokes. I have a whole other line of entertainment software that I want to launch, same with ecommerce and building navigation software. I MAY have figured out the problem with my pitch shifting code so I can do singing synthesis/auto tune text to speech voices. I need people to sell! I occasionally inquire but it leads to nowhere. I'll try again in a few weeks.

I also want to do screenplays and music production, I'll try and spend a few hours a week after a wedding I'm DJing, need to spend my arts time on that, before that it was Brisbane. The reason I'm developing a SMS application is so I can use phones overseas.

There's a bunch of stuff I haven't mentioned. Perhaps I do too much. If I could monetize the building navigation and ecommerce products that would be a start. Some projects are small so although it feels like a crisis and overwhelming it may get better after a month or two.

I decided that I like the term Mad Computer Scientist. People are free to call me that. This is a play on the term Mad Scientists, a common thing in pop culture. If you're sensitive to mental health issues, I am also quick to anger so it works for that too.

Brisbane 2017

 

Tuesday I performed my final test before Brisbane. Had to delete some stuff, otherwise it went OK.

It has been suggested that I do more crowd funding to travel. I am not really comfortable taking people's money but I am not going to rule this out entirely. I want to proceed with screen productions and music, but traveling with comedy is also appealing. Some people have said that I should tighten my script. I think that I am already hillarious but also think that trying to optimize is a good idea if traveling internationally. I will try to do more experimenting at paying gigs. Some artists frown on this but also frown on not tightening. I will do things my way. As long as I stay hillarious to the audience that is really all that matters. Should I want to travel internationally I will try and pick up more local gigs.

Productions are the first priority. For years and years I have fantesized about hot guys, but also doing productions like sitcoms and legal shows. It's time for me to presue my dreams. Funding is an issue but I can start small, take things from there.

Thursday I went to Brisbane. I can do lots of blogging here. Fuck it's hot on the plane. Slept for two hours last night. Fucking insomia. My fault for working late.

Friday and Saturday I performed and also experienced some shows during those days. It went well. First time was the larger crowd. A man said he liked my comedy because it tells a story of what his mother must go through. Had some straight Vodkas, only about three. More international trips are appealing, funding is a problem. This one was fully funded. Thanks Access Arts Queensland!

Would it be narsissistic of me to view my comedy as a public service? I am narsissistic, so that's OK.

Sunday I went home. Didn't do about as much blogging as I would have like but as Tony Abbot says shit happens! Shit happened with my phone, couldn't get a SIM card, that was an utter bastard, must buy a new phone before my next trip overseas. Basically my phone is a dinosaur and some countries don't support 2G but the accessibility software for it closed down and I am not sure if the accessibility software will work because its serial number is tied to the model. Fuck that, that is a stupid fucking system. Fuck software developers that discontinue their software too. Maybe I can make my own software or find something else. Not being able to text locals is truly disabling. Otherwise good festival. Trying a margarita on flight home taste appears to linger. Good temporary effect.

Comedy, projects, politics

 
Performed 6 new minutes Wednesday, mostly went well, one dud line. I don't know if getting impatient for the crowd to stop laughing is a good sign or not? Have one more testing set, then hopefully two professional gigs. I may have something else that is going to require me to invent remote text to speech software so I can live speak at a remote location; I am looking forward to the project!

I was going to blog about the election but ended up doing it on my news blog last week. Some plans depend on which way it goes, ultimately I prefer left but I have plans to enact (a website to launch) if it goes right. Left would mean I can focus of other things instead of launching a site to do what the government refuses to do. Although the site would be easy but ultimately I have a zillion other projects and not having to do it would be easier.

This blog is a bit short. Oh hurry the fuck up Winston. For people that complain he has all the power you should have done more to increase your side instead of bitching after the fact. This system is shitty but is at least better than parties winning with only 33% of the vote. All eyes on Winston, he probably likes it this way. Stupid pundits should stop mentioning a blue green government is a possibility, you're in an utter fucking fantasy world! Their base would leave the greens and the party would die. How many MPs did the maori party and United Future get? Oh that's right 0! Act 1! All parties had multiple MPs at one stage. Greens would die quicker because their core base is anti national. Greens are not just an environmental party but a their base largely prefers socialism too. Did your TV job come with cocaine?

Comedy and blogging

 
Tuesday I performed stand up comedy, I was fantastic, as always. Well most of the time anyway. Enjoyed it, I always do but I have to have an objective to do gigs. Need to test new content for Brisbane. I may have some other stuff lined up beyond that. However I'm developing a line up of arts related software and that will remain my primarily focus when it comes to the arts, and learning music production. I also want to professionally write comedy, can never get success finding jobs. Maybe I will email more producers or whatever after Brisbane. I am considering crowd funding productions, again after Brisbane. Maybe I should do animations first to build a base. I don't know. I get ideas, and don't have the manpower to capitalize on them. Some I start and forget, some never make it out of the development phase. Some active projects I don't devote enough time to; I just have to automate more of my work. Hey at least I'm not a president too stupid to do anything productive with the power. I feel much better!

I have a Patreon page that basically hasn't been used for years since its inception. I am wondering if the Pateron model would work for a disability oriented production company, could be worth doing. I know that I want to start the organization after Brisbane, undecided on what form. Regarding monetizing my personal blog posts, would be a dream come true, but I am not sure how popular I am. I am lucky if I get two likes per post LOL. I would like to spend more time blogging, but there's probably more creative avenues that would be better use of my time. I am finding it hard to restrict myself to one Brain Blog a month; I could do two however maybe monthly ensures I don't run out of content. I have a post on weight and psychology next month. I wanted to do technology blogs, but I just keep posting about psychology. A problem I have is between blogging and spare time projects I have almost no time for anything else, like researching new porn. I would love it if I could do some blogging in work time; alternatively porn. No not as a performer, I would definitely write scenes though. Would need to research what people like. There's a joke by Jimmy Dore "I'm a wanker, I don't want to do a medical examination" Do people really like the extreme close ups? Let me know? Also let me know how I can be paid for blogging; thinking of connecting my main disability blog to Patreon, that might be a start. Will probably connect a comedy division to my disability production company and talent agency. Sounds like a plan.

Ariana Grande 2017

 
Tried another stand up wheelchair. No idea if I am going to get funding for it. The salesman has everything he needs to provide a quote. Hopefully I get it.

Never staying here again, practically a dump with shit access, both outside and the room. Slightly more privacy. YouTube doesn't work, facebook video does. Fuck that.

It's Friday as I am typing. Off to Auckland. Having Burger King at airport, just because I can, I like soft meat, easier to eat.

Sunday, back home. went to Ariana Grande Saturday. Music was pretty good, stage show was great at time. She pretty much just sang, which I know duh she's a singer but some singers also provide entertaining dialogue. I'd give the show a B. Does this count as a website review? Can I write off the trip as business? Probably not. I really need to start my music site so I can do that. I keep getting sidetracked with other projects. Latest is a DJ automation system. It's my first dual web and Windows project!

Now to do programming for three hours.

Music, comedy, 32

 
I don't feel like blogging; I have no idea how much I slept if at all. Let's say it was a rare time I got intoxicated. Although I did some work at the same time, for a DJ gig. Gives me experience in the field. I should note last night was totally sanctioned by my client, I don't have some horrible work ethic.

Fans of my comedy should note that I am probably going to resume stand up comedy in several weeks; got a probable overseas gig and need to test some new material.

I am now 32. I really should start to make changes to my life; though need an significant income stream first. Eh perhaps I'll continue to build up stuff and do that next year. I don't want to be a birthday grinch, but I am not enthused. Every year I want to do something big, but my business always seems to be not as successful as I would like to warrant it, possibly next year. I need to travel more. At least I have one probable overseas trip, one per year is the bare minimum that I want. Recently I that overseas accessibility is not good. So maybe I can do something with that. I already have two tourism related ventures, perhaps combine those with a few other things and who knows?

Little Mix 2017

 
After Auckland I went to the doctor and it turns out I have a chest infection, on antibiotics. With combined insomia due to hip pain all I could do is half sick days without much spare time programming projects. I didn't like it. I'm probably going to start my half holidays next week. I promised that I would do it for my month of birth.

The following Saturday I went to Auckland and again for a Little Mix concert. Weekend is turning out to be only slightly less crappy than last due to guys cancelling on me. I do enjoy getting rooms very high. On the 14th floor; I like the skyscrapper view. Room also has air conditioning. Stupid case sensitive Wifi password. Didn't work it out until the next morning. Would help if it didn't have a fUckedCode

Concert was good, would have been better if I wasn't on antibiotics and could drink. Found their music to be diverse, enjoyed it. A criticism was they weren't on for long, however nothing could be as bad as the Vengaboys who danced to other people's music half the time, they didn't even use their own voices for many songs. Personally I'd rather listen to a short amount of original music than have them do random covers to fill in time.

Monday I went home, not terribly happy about the 2pm flight, though I did get another two blogs done. 6 blogs in total I wrote.

Sugar Rios

 
Nothing noteworthy in the first week. Thursday the second week I went to Auckland for a Sugar Rios concert. Not feeling 100% so maybe just sticking to a segregated seat is worthwhile h. Almost didn't come.

Saturday now. Concert was good. Spent most of the first half in segregated seating but the music was kind of soft so I thought why not go down? They would only let me on the side for some strange reason; if people can't see me it's their problem, I just laugh when they crash into me and hope they're hot. Surprised the arena was so full a non English speaking band. Going home today.

Generally I avoid annoucing when I go away on facebook unless you I absolutely have to. This time It avoided posting for two days in order to stop an annoying daily notificaton. You've shared 107 days in a row and your friends are responding. Don't care. Fuck off. I'll always post one every 96 hours and almost daily. I appreciate the incentive to not post.

Was going to blog again next week but I think I am happy with a two week schedule for now.

Trial wheelchair, NdT, etc

 
Well insomnia continued for about a week then I was able to kick it, so far, it's Wednesday July as I am typing this... *opens email inbox* it's the 5th. Well I don't fucking know what the date is otherwise. Got a trial stand up wheelchair today, days off were adjusted to fit with this. For some reason I have leg pads, I hate them! They must incorrectly assume that I fling my legs out randomly. I don't! It's too restrictive, not getting one permanently. Just a chest strap will do for standing. Otherwise good apart from sharp parts. And things fall off randomly, hopefully they'll be secured if I get it permanently.

Last night I went to Neil deGrasse Tyson, enjoyed it, although the opening video kind of sucked and the topic frankly was a horrible fit for the rest of the evening; out of place. Let's criticize muslims for being anti science, because talking snakes in the Bible is totally science based and factual. Turkey is pushing for evolution not to be taught, so are legislators in Texas! Sure some parts of Islam are extremists, but the problem also exists in Christianity to a lesser extent. Right wing Christians have had some pretty crappy ideas too such as neoliberal economics, the Iraq invasion and oh not doing anything about climate change because God will save us; fuck off and fuck you. Neil didn't mention Islam, ridiculously out of place video. I'm blaming the Australian organization for that! Otherwise good show. Inspired to write about the myth of over population; he was answering a question about it and basically thinks that there's no such thing, which is basically what I declared on a Facebook post a few months ago. Smart man he is; most people who agree with me are. I also like the idea of science entertainers, will keep that in mind for upcoming talent agencies I run.

Today (Sunday now) I took the trial wheelchair around the block, not bad, just turns too fast in comparison to going straight, can be adjusted, good chair.

Bye for two weeks. Hopefully I will finally start my half holidays then! Having trouble bringing myself to not work full time, too much to do.

Insomnia, rich people

 
Insomnia is back, but getting better I think. Trying new things including avoiding looking at my screen at night while listening to music. Maybe programming for 10-11 hours a day is unsustainable. I usually just do half days for holidays, will finally take some in July. Even with increased spare time programming work, programming hours will reduce then, though probably only slightly.

Sunday update, yes I definitely think not frequently looking at my even dimmed computer screen during listening to music at night solves the problem, this explains why it seems to be random. Will do that going forward.

Mostly had a weekend instead of doing spare time programming projects, facebook is distracting, kind of annoyed! Hate wasting time on Facebook. Taking another break from this blog next week. Life is quiet and boring, have some concerts in July.

I don't really have a random rant this entry. On the subject of the Minister of disabilities saying she rather be on a boat than meet with disability groups. The whole thing felt very Orange Buffoonish on the cluelessness of the tweet. Perhaps she can be our ambassador to the US, she'll get along great with Orange Buffoon. He'd probably rather be out yachting than being president. To be honest I'd rather rich people just enjoy life than fuck things up in government. Give me 1 billion dollars. I'd probably just hibernate in a mansion with some hot guys, perhaps do some business and social enterprises. Not sure why I would want to be in government if I was rich; you don't have to be in government to influence policy. Give me 10 million dollars why on earth would I want a government job? That's just crazy to me, but I'm not an utter narcissist. If rich people just be rich and not try to fuck things up there probably wouldn't be so much hatred towards them. Her tweet was also unprofessional, if I met with advocacy groups and I do the last thing I would do would be to say that I would rather be somewhere else. How can they have confidence in you? Usually for out of town meetings I just find a quick hookup, now this on its face sounds bad but actually makes me really grateful for the weekend and the organization! You should certainly be engaged with anything you do, I don't continue with organizations if I feel my time is better spent elsewhere. I am finding it is better to create your own advocacy opportunities.

90s concert, agency automation

 
This is posted on Monday because had insomnia Friday and I like to work when I have it, I like to actually enjoy my time off.

Sunday two weeks ago now I went to a concert called I Love The 90s, I mistakenly thought it was more pop, whoops. It was geared towards hip hop and rap. I enjoyed Coolio's See You When I Get There, and Vanilla Ice put on a good stage show. No overly annoying people, a woman kept talking to me at first, couldn't understand what she was saying, I then moved up near the front, should of done it sooner. On entry I was called a \'trouble maker" for wanting to go on the floor instead of upstairs. That was a bit odd. Excuse me for just wanting to be one of the crowd.

Agency automation is coming along, creating a contact extractor for people that can't be fucked hunting down Email addresses/contact form on sites. Also creating booking facilities and a web contact manager, among other things.

Next blog in two weeks.

Music, Project, Shit, Auto tune

 
Probably should had this week off personal blog. Sunday night I have a concert, more names to add to my seen live list. There's about 80 at this point. Vengaboys were the worst, Anastacia was the best.

Spent last weekend improving my artist agency software, this weekend is no different. I suddenly want to launch a social enterprise that will combine a talent agency and production company, so I am creating software to automate as much work as possible, software will be for sale too, get in touch if you're interested! The social combines a few of my goals such as wanting to produce screen content, music and visibility of people with disabilities. If I automate as much administration work as possible the administrator can do more work that matters. Ultimately the goal is to get more people with disabilities in the public eye, on different TV shows, DJs, singers. Some content I want to produce myself; I'd need people to produce things for. I imagine much content production would be independent of myself. Another key point is to get it self funding so the work can continue without constantly asking for money. This requires me to be entrepreneural, I am ready to take up this challenge. This project will save thousands by having me build the software and most of the website for free. I'm not the best web designer so I don't know if to do that part.hopefully this project will run mostly by itself; I can dip in and out of it with artistic, consulting and technological contributions when appropriate. Other social enterprises may be added on too.

Time to see what shit I can type, not literal shit. I'd be extremely talented if I could produce shit with typing, I'd sell it for gardens, depending on output of course. Does human shit work for growing plants? If not never mind, If so why do we throw much of it out? The government should find a way to recycle it. Googled, it can be fertilizer. Change of subject. I have nothing. Nothing? The contents of Orange Buffon's head!

I was thinking about singing lessons vs auto tune, obviously not for me. Artists should do pure singing, but these days it's not really required. If it's good enough for Britney Spears and Cher, pure singing is preferred but if the situation is correct maybe an artist can be successful with auto tune alone.

I also find it bizarre they have singing competitions when artists lip sync and auto tune. But anything to avoid paying actors and writers, right? By the way hire me as a writer for your TV show. You'll be impressed bigly!

I'll be back next week, probably not the week after.

Projects, Budget, Music, Blogs

 
This is posted on Monday because got insomnia Saturday. Fuck Facebook! I should know better than to engage in the comments late at night. So worked six days, now have a four day week. Moving my half holidays back again, suddenly want to implement new features on my event listing software.

People have been posting about Budget 2017. I could have told you that they're still a neoliberal crapfest even without the announcement. The government is not going to make life better for me; I have to do that. I'd say that this is a spoiler for future years, but Bill English isn't really good at winning elections. Really, who's excited about Bill English? I doubt even his wife is. Uninteresting but not as extreme as Don Brash.

Finally completed another music production tutorial, turned out to be the last. Maybe I'll find more, or move to experimenting. I possibly have no idea what I'm doing but that's what experimenting is for.

I just decided to consider changing this blog to every two weeks or monthly. I struggle to find things to blog about, I end up just doing random rants. That is fun, but I hoped to do a psychology blog and only ended up with a single post since launching in February. Maybe the solution is to occasionally skip quiet weeks and do other blogs. See you next week. Well no, I am not seeing you right now. See you next week is a stupid thing to say. Rest assured I don't have cameras in your house. Partly because it's illegal, partly because you're not that interesting, partly because I don't know who you are. I don't have cameras in anybody's house, you're thinking of the CIA!

Projects, Stein, ideas, humanity

 
Perhaps I'll start my half holidays in June to sync with another concert. This pushes my creative projects back to July, can't be helped. Also preparing to start software to semi automate online promoting which is a big goal of mine.

Oh dear, I believe I just discovered the Alex Jones lite of the left and they're nut bars that attack TheYoungTurks for not covering Jil Stien enough. They live in fantasy world that think Stein would have won because of X or Y.

While I'm on the subject I've noticed not all people that defend smart ideas are smart people, some people doing so are not very bright. Smart ideas shouldn't need you to defend them, but if doing so please FFS do it in an intelligent way. I understand the urge to correct people. It's a matter of time, do you really want to spend time on people you assume are wrong? I have better things to do.

People complain that they're old. In my opinion it's not the time you have left but how you spend it. There's no reason why you can't do interesting things when you retire, well unless you have alzheimer's. Apart from that you don't have to travel to make life worthwhile; there's plenty of things you can learn on the web and from there you could do research, even do experiments. Many people see retirement as the end, but it doesn't have to be. You need not let your brain retire and play bridge. The problem with humanity is most people are stuck in repetitive jobs and instead of discovering and innovating. It is accepted by society that most people do work in this fashion. This is absurd. While I'm in tangent mode the progression of science would do better if scientists keep the profits from their inventions instead of selling things to corporations. If profits went to R&D instead of shareholders that would have some ground breaking ramifications. Finally on a similar but different note I was thinking that an Anti Hunger Industrial Complex would be a tremendous idea if done right. I am not sure if that would be workable. Though if organizations give up their million dollar executive salaries and funnel that money to political campaigns instead, that could actually work!

Green Day 2017

 
I worked another full week. Surprise surprise. Will probably work until at least Thursday.
Tonight I am going to Green Day. I go to a lot of concerts, very few I am super excited to go to. Been looking forward to this for months.

Green Day was good. At first they wouldn't let me in General Admission but they managed to be convinced. Couldn't get into the first row but 15 meters away, was still awesome. Briefly got further but decided to go back. I got a drum stick. Wouldn't have got that with stupid segregated seating.

Stupid hotel internet won't let me on YouTube. High speed internet but you can do fuck with it.

Home Monday, nothing special happened the rest of the trip. So fuck that, but Green Day was great!

Schedule, Zucky, Projects

 
This is posted on Monday because had insomnia Saturday and would rather work when tired than type blogs. I blame typing on Facebook late at night. Fuck Facebook.

Next entry will be posted on Monday too. Worked a few week and Wednesday is going to be my last full day for a month. This really just means I'm going to replace some work time with spare time projects.

Apparently Mark Zuckerburg is going to run for president. Fuck that idea. Another billionaire white guy, no thanks! I constantly complain about American politics, YouTube is the primary reason. I try to avoid TV news, and get my news from YouTube. Unfortunately all I know are American oriented shows. If there was a TheYoungTurks in New Zealand, I'd watch that. The only show I know is some crazy conspiracy show where they think everything is poisoning us and blah blah blah. Earthquakes are caused by a secret US weapon. Cloud Cuckoo Land type stuff. I don't like being limited to US commentary when it comes to YouTube. I don't have time to read blogs. Probably shouldn't have admitted that being a blogger. Well fuck! YouTube I can have in the background. Maybe I can create a Text To Speech application that automatically downloads blogs. Maybe I am fucking busy and should avoid new projects! Maybe I can do that particular project later.

Hehe if Zucky ran the US government the way he runs facebook. You'll get a letter for every stupid response to what you're commenting on (notifications), people would go door to door inviting people to events, you'll be automatically be assigned to groups by people that know you that you'll have to file paperwork to opt out of, they'll distribute funding to NGOs based on likes, the only news you'll get is the news they assume that you want to see,

I was going to blog about rich superhumans and whether it's a utopia or dystopia, maybe another time.

Finally I have a passion for TV writing and music production. I have never done much about them. Although I have been slowly learning music production, and have previously written a screenplay for a short film. I think I will more aggressively go after these after my half holiday. I think that I can devote one day a week to this, plus blogging. Apparently nobody writes for TV full time, in New Zealand so that definitely works. I probably can work on music at my own pace for personal stuff. I can probably cut down programming and delegate business management if necessary. I'll keep programming because I love creating technology but I'll consider a reduction in future, possibly just for periods when I have a significant creative project.

Bones, Life

 
Ran out of Bones episodes, not sure what to watch next. This isn't an invitation for suggestions. I have some idea but finding motivation to get it is the problem.

I was going to start my half day holidays May first but decided to postpone until 4th to progress my environmental controls and building navigation projects, it's possible I'll work the full week. Eye tracking project is further delayed; I'd rather make real progress on environmental controls. My main spare time project is creating hotel accessibility software and I'm probably going to do a restaurant version too. Fuck knows why I am doing these in my spare time. I really don't have a life outside of programming. I'm happily single without obligations and that's how I like it. I like the freedom. I can do what I like, do who I like... Except I spend most of the time programming, even outside of work hours. I generally enjoy programming, except the fucking eye tracking project. I also blog and hope to resume creative projects in June. Can't understand loneliness; I am too busy to be lonely! I just need someone to entertain me and leave. I also can't understand cuddling, I find it incredibly boring. Actually I randomly laugh when thoughts pop into my head, which is very strange for the guys I'm with. Again I find cuddling incredibly boring, my mind needs to be doing something. The only exception is winding down at night listening to music and only because I'm practically forced to if I don't want insomnia.

Comedy, Wellington

 
Insomia is back, hopefully temporarily. Went out to comedy shows Wednesday and Thursday. Possibly has something to do with trying to type thoughts afterward. Friday I also did some typing before bed. Won't be an issue next week. Also won't be posting my regular NP blog after this is posted.

Saturday I went to Welligton for a meeting. I thought the meeting was two days, was only Sunday! The bad: had two hours sleep, this time got up at 5AM. Also why the fuck don't they serve coffee on early morning flights? The good: had time to prepare and afterwards had an enjoyable evening.

Sunday was a nine hour long meeting. Long but rather enjoyable. Also enjoyed Pizza and chips at the airport before going home.

Comedy, Facebook, Concert

 
Wednesday I went to two comedy shows. I got an applause line even though I was not in the shows! I was supposed to see something Thursday but fucked up and turned up at the wrong venue! I am thinking of trying an inprov themed set next; just because I can.

If I haven't already said that I hate Facebook; let me state for the record that I hate Facebook! It's a stupid site. Its latest cluserfuck of a feature is people marking themselves safe after a disaster. Bitch, I don't want to bothered by Facebook asking me if I am safe from an event happening miles away from me. I am busy! If people are interested in my well being they can check my facebook feed; I usually post once every 24 hours at minimum, I am now just Facebooking out random shit at night as I think of them when I am listening to music. I also don't need twenty notifications telling me that my friends are safe when many are nowhere near the affected area. Ridiculous fucking feature. Can anyone really be considered safe with Orange Buffoon randomly bombing things?

Went to Blondie and Cyndi Laupa. Some random woman danced with me. She said \'this is the first dance, not the last", she never came back! Probably drunk. I went to see Cyndi but Blondie had better music to dance to. I was in the far away area I hate so much and they didn't even have big screens on, maybe I need to buy a telescope!

Next blog will be posted on a Monday.

Watching, projects

 
Friday: Watched a psychology lecture last night, got insomnia. Won't be doing that again. I will watch lectures in the weekend instead of a bunch of TV episodes. Fiction should be limited for me, why watch the idiot box when you can learn about the world? I don't care if I am out of touch. With humanity today, I don't want to be in touch with. Obviously hot guys excluded. I am fine being very in touch with hot guys. The rest of humanity can continue electing ridiculous people as their leader (including John Key) and continue being outraged at stupid shit on Facebook, has Justine landed yet? I must try to expand my scientific knowledge. I basically only watch 3 TV shows daily, and I watch these at minimum of 1.5X speed, few other soaps at 4X, mainly to check out the guys! I found a bunch of psychology lectures, will work my way through those, then medical and science. Maybe some sort of engineering would be good. I viewed several marketing themed talks at night, didn't caused insomnia. Maybe I was more engaged with psychology. I guess I will just have to listen to music at night to avoid getting insomnia.

Saturday now, decided to start releasing commercial business automation products. Yes, more projects! However finishing off current projects is the priority. At least with business automation products that will help me run the other businesses. I just had an accessibility rating idea, more fucking projects!

Crazy rant, projects

 
Random crazy rant time. "Good evening Thane" Fuck off! I don't want Facebook to greet me, ever! I keep hiding the post, it keeps coming back. It's not Facebook's job to greet me, it's Facebook's job to give me random annoying posts! I am going to check the API; perhaps I can do all comments and posts from my own platform. I have made an auto poster for Twitter, just have not gotten around to testing the technology, will do soon, then work on a Facebook version. "Good morning Thane!" Fuck off, you're just a website. Bit arrogant to assume I want a cherry greeting.

The organization in charge of my accommodation transfer have been suspended for six or nine months. Hopefully by then I will have several businesses up and can just arrange decent accommodation myself. I am FINALLY starting to market, although discovered building navigation systems have additional features, so implementing such functionality on mine, then will continue marketing and build a little hotel room service ordering system. Taking a month of half day holidays in May, there's a few spare time projects I want to complete.

Dentist, Adele

 
am in Auckland but only have 300MB of data. Fuck this. Adele concert is tomorrow. Apparently it is going to be raining. Fuck that.

Thursday I had a dentist appointment. I am sick of interruptions to programming time. April is not going to be as busy. Still going away and a few meetings. Doesn't look like I have more open homes and apparently I am no longer moving. I didn't want to move to another place in Christchurch. I may as well stay put until I decide when to move to another city.

Speaking of appointments I am creating reminder software to add on to the business software I am creating. My goal is to make a full business management system, to the extent it can be done. Plus I need a reminder system for myself.

Sunday I went home. Adele was good. Definitely in the top half of the concerts I have been to. Possibly top 10. Think Set Fire To The Rain was the song that I most enjoyed dancing to, although I doubt that's scientifically possible as water evaporates. I sound like Bones! The previous week had a better light show.

Sunday I went home. Pleased I was changed to a direct flight!

Yes I said I will be posting this on Monday. That is why I need a reminder system.

Dentist, Justin Bieber

 
Wednesday I had dental surgory. Inconvenient. Vomitting and a sleepless night was more inconvenient. Didn't get pain killer, but never needed them. Half the time I have taken Codine I didn't actually need it. It does seem to cure the occasional times when I can't stop swallowing air. So that's technically not phama abuse however I can't say that I care that occasionally I take something I don't really need. I figure it's OK if I only do that kind of thing every few months. Last surgory I only took Codine once, surgory two months ago, four times. I think that is pretty restrant. I really like to minimize frequent pill usage but one occasional to hell with it moment every few months is a possibility. As long as I keep the dosage at recommended levels I can't see the problem.

Saturday I went to Auckland and saw Justin Bieber. Why? I don't fucking know. I can say that the crowds were less unberable than the One Direction concert. They assigned a guy to help look after me, I didn't really need one, but he was a cute Asian, so OK! Didn't refuse. Concert was OK. Lights looked good in the night sky. Surprised how quick getting home was considering I couldn't leave early.

Crappy day Sunday, should have gone home.

Monday I went home. Missed my flight but got on the next one

Opinions to war

 
Nothing to write about so I will probably just ramble. I am convinced some people just comment on facebook because they like the sound of their fingers typing on their keyboard. I am bashing Facebook users again, what a surprise. I can't decide whether I want to hear other people's perspectives or not wanting to hear utter bullshit. I generally lean on the side of getting the views of others even if you think the views are moronic. You really don't know which of your friends are away in fantasy land until they post on facebook. I also can't decide whether it's worthwhile to know what people believe. For example if someone posts something completely stupid all that tells me is that person is detached from reality; my life really isn't better for knowing that. Objective facts and evidence are more worthwhile than people's beliefs. Unless you can back up your claims with evidence, I really can't say I am interested. On the other hand if you do not know what people believe you can't challenge them. Example people running away from the US because of Trump, all you're doing is ensuring there's more support for Buffoon. Of course, bounds of reason; Jews shouldn't have stayed and debated Hitler. All signs point to Orange Buffoon being temporary, the battle of his particular ideas can be won, but that is less likely if people leave the debate.

I personally would fuck off if I couldn't win the battle of ideas and if I was in danger because of it. There are people who would want to stay and defend their country, they're admirable. I couldn't even if I wanted to. Putting rocket launchers on my wheelchair is not feasible. Guess I could hack weapons, but I could do that from a tropical beach.

Only I could start at moaning about Facebook users and end up at winning wars with hacking.

The next two blog posts will be posted on Mondays

Music production, nerd tangents

 
I missed out on doing two music production lessons this past two weeks, did three lessons tonight. Turns out they pretty much repeated the same content with slight variations. Maybe I will do a 2 hour trance production tutorial after I finish my current batch of lessons.

Friday I had a meeting about mounting eye trackers.

I am suddenly interested in getting a gripper robot or two but that costs money. Probably 1K at least for two. I would be best waiting until I complete my environmental controls and launch some software. Robots could be useful; I could put them to work when I am not using them which would be most of the time. Saw a gripper robot when I caught the start of Big Bang Theory I should totally get one. Apparently the show has been renewed for 13 seasons. Seems people either love or hate it. It isn't must see TV but generally enjoy it on an international flight. Apparently geeks are fucked off because of stereotypes. Going off on a massive tangent. I am a proud geek and nerd, I'd rather be that than a stupid fucker incurious about the world. I don't get the appeal with Star Trek, Star Wars, comics etc. They can fuck off. I am more into crime drama; I need to download more Bones. What the hell happened to the Blacklist on TV3? Falling massively behind the US. Here's the thing about the Blacklist promos, every one of them is like the worst ever event in the series. This is somewhat ineffectual; if everything is the worst, it somewhat loses its impact.

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.
