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.

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!

Politics, Projects, Advocacy

 
So, my political theory! I have suddenly decided that policy does not matter for the most part. The key factor is likability. If people like your politician more on a personal level, he/she will probably win. There are exceptions; Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by the usual voting population of New Zealand; if everyone in New Zealand that usually votes, voted for Hillary Clinton, that was what she won by. Instead of the US exporting democracy, they should import it. The 2000 election is also not a good fit since George W Bush lost the popular vote. However even in swing states these people undeniably won the popular vote (except Florida 2000). It could be in blue states there's just more people emotionally attached to the Democrate Party and always vote for Democrates.

People say centrism is electable. I am not so sure. It could be the conservatives in the UK and US were just governing too long; people were sick of them and elected the centrists. Perhaps they didn't elect the socialists because they didn't like them on a personal level, also the effects from neoliberalism were not as bad back then. If a leftist had the X factor he/she could probably win. The problem with liberals and progressives is they are too weak and academic. In fact they are so weak they allow their parties to be taken over by right wingers. By contrast the Republicans cheat by Voter ID laws and districting and have power. I am not saying we should go that far, but definitely have a likable character with a popular message.

Who does the public dislike more Andrew Little or Bill English? I don't actually know. Andrew has a fair shot at becoming PM. now that publicity clown John Key has left the building.

Hosted videos are mostly integrated in my ecommerce and internet buildings software, but have decided that YouTube videos will also be useful. Going to do that next week.

Monday I went to an advocacy workshop. Why? I don't know this time. Perhaps I figured I may as well get the free training even though I have attended two or three similar events for advocacy, politics. I did enjoy the lamb for lunch. I did note a point that I brought up at the beginning they later spent an hour on; speaking the language of your audience and helping them with their goals. This is my default mode. Example helping companies realize increasing accessibility will help increase their profits, or if your request fits in with the small government model; you should point that out to the government agency. Overall it was quite a different workshop and did bring my attention to some unique points.

A few extra points. A tactic you can use to appear successful is specifically target goals that you can spin so it has incentives for the audience. This may be a cop out to do the easier stuff; but if your goal is having more achievements it can't hurt to be selective, but maybe you should mix it up too! Also if meeting in a group ensure members of your group don't go on about something utterly irrelevant rather than the thing that you are advocating for. I have had this happen to me in a meeting; I did not organize it. Careful who you invite!

John Key, Projects

 
I told you I was going to talk about politics on this blog this entry and now John Key has resigned. Coincidence? Probably.

Fuck it, I am taking credit.

I will rant about John Key this entry and move my political theory to next week.

I don't wish harm to John Key, but I certainly don't wish John Key well. Fuck John Key. He is a millionaire who is responsible for inflicting damage on this country through his policies. A lot of his policies such as trickle down economics and public private partnerships are anti evidence. Regarding TDE any competent economist will tell you the way to stimulate the economy is giving people money who are more likely to spend money; that is the middle class, not the rich. His education policies are based on ideological voodoo such as private public partnerships again and do not work based on all available international evidence. National standards cripple our education system. Everyone learns at their own pace and it is essential for educators to be allowed to be more creative. For people who say inequality also grew under Labour, and? If National was decent they'd reduce inequality. Same with house prices. Though no party will go to to the polls saying they'll reduce house prices. I could go on, but the purpose of this was to demonstrate that my dislike of John Key is based on rationality, I have no time to write a laundry list of crappy National party policies. For people that believe in the lesser evil paradox; National is the greater evil, though not if you're a right wing crazy. Key's only saving grace is he is not as batshit crazy as other people in his party. When you look at the growth of inequality internationally we're slap bang in the middle. He deserves some credit, but not much. Fuck John Key.

Also a politician resigned, people are \'triggered" over the fact people hate politicians. Go fucking figure. Welcome to humanity. Oh why are people picking on a powerful millionaire? Because he's a fuckwit! I bet if Halen Clark had resigned resigned the right wing would react similarly if not worse. By the way, women don't quit! Oh why don't you love us no more John Key?

Last week I implemented dual orbit and 360" photos to my Internet Buildings and ecommerce products. In the coming week I will probably add audio and video functions. Current spare time project is adding a DJ track name broadcast system to my events software.

Nelly, Work, Facebook, Politics

 
Wednesday I went to a Nelly concert. I was up the front; it was fun, enjoyed the support, maybe the DJ time needed shortening but otherwise it was a good concert.

I decided that I hate Windows programming, so will only do that one day a week. Will do web development, Virtual Reality and creative work the rest of my working week. Originally I wanted to finish off my virtual guide and Virtual Reality software, but I may as well keep developing so it is the best it can be, this platform can be helpful for people with blindness I am working on accessibility issues too! This weekend I'm setting up a new computer. Initial thoughts on Windows 10, meh. I do like how quiet the hardware is. I don't have to turn it off for speed listening.

Now that I am back to working full time; I'll spend less time on Facebook; I don't even like Facebook. It is full of food porn, chain posts, stupid people, stupid opinions, people that know fuck all about what they're talking about, correcting your uninformed opinion takes time and I really can't be fucked as I type super slow, people who constantly write half a page about their personal dramas. (at least I have the decency to do that in a blog) The only thing worse is relentlessly happy people; scientifically happiness levels naturally variate. If you're relentlessly happy you're probably putting on an act. I know that I go in the opposite direction as the Grumpy Cripple. Ewhores can also fuck off; I am sick of constantly declining pretty women, spamming fuckwitts should modify their bots to send pretty shirtless blond guys my way! I hate people that add me to groups automatically, do fuck off. I can't stand invites, again fuck off. I don't want to be invited to your professional event. Thank fuck you can block event invites from particular people. I can tolerate personal invites. I don't give a fuck about your Facebook page. I only invite very limited people to mine that I have determined would be interested. Though I have about a million LOL! I block all game invites and you know what's coming; fuck off. If you direct message me; have an intelligent point or fuck off; I don't have time to reply to random people saying hi. There are seven billion people on this planet; go and find someone else to chat to. I have to approve tags to prevent people tagging me in irrelevant crap. I avoid facebook on holidays; no interest in seeing MERRY CHRISTMAS a billion times. Same with celebrities dying; it is practically obituarybook! The only reason I don't deactivate my account is I do actually like people on there; I just hate most of their posts LOL! Also I will not copy and paste anything, you can fuck off.

I have formed a new theory on how to win in politics. I'll go into that next week. In short it's style, not policy that is the dominating factor. If the other side has a stronger personality, they will probably win. Policy appears to be somewhat irrelevant. Election data provided next week. The Trump victory fits this rule, kind of, if you disregard the fact he didn't win the popular vote. However he won the popular vote where in states it matters, so my theory (kind of) applies.

Half Holidays, Partying

 
My half holidays end at the conclusion of the month. I didn't achieve what I really wanted with spare time projects, but achieved various other things. I'll continue spare time projects on the weekends, I have less to do so that is good. Also will restructure my work week mid December. Perhaps I'll do more half days at the end of February as I have three Auckland concerts in the span of a month. Four Auckland concerts in total before June. Better get my NZ Gigs website up. Also working on software specific to artist managers. Yes, I have terrible project ADHD but at least some big ones should be completed soon.

Going to a family engagement party tonight (Saturday), had a meeting Monday; it's an open question which one will result in less drama. The meeting was quite entertaining.

Sunday, I have a weird hangover thing, it's not a hangover but I just feel like a zombie which can still function reasonably well. Night was good. Took family photos; luckily in such a state smiling was not the problem that it normally is. I have trouble smiling on command kind of like Chandler Bing. No drama, that was quite surprising.

Earthquakes, chaired a meeting

 
There were earthquakes again. Religious lunatics blame gays. Conspiracy lunatics blame HARRP. I'm going to be boring and scientific and blame fault lines; but feel free to blame Donald Trump. If there is a God he is probably not pleased at the election; then again if he all powerful, why would he allow things that displease him to exist? Then again, don't tell me I am not interested. The ground shook for about five minutes; I thought that it was never going to end or something horrific was about to happen. As it turned out, no. Well actually other parts of the country are kind of fucked. But at least our government is super efficient at fixing things; laugh along with me. We are still waiting for the government to fix half of Christchurch; good luck to the rest of you.

Oh, and for you idiots that think HARRP is causing earthquakes and they're going to unleash it on America, you've said it for 5 years, when the fuck is it going to happen? Is it like your Agenda 21 conspiracy which they shove everyone into hobbit homes which you've been going on about since 1993. Where are the hobbit homes? You people are idiots and have no connection to reality whatsoever. There is no man with a machine that intentionally creates earthquakes; that's not a thing! Batshit crazy!

Saturday I chaired a meeting through my own brilliance, not to brag. Fuck it! Yes I'm bragging. I cannot talk but now through technology I have created I have performed stand up comedy, speeches, participated in panel discussions and now have chaired a meeting. The first and last would be practically impossible without the software I created. I am brilliant!

Trump, Shapeshifter, Comedy

 
Wednesday I watched the US election on TheYoungTurks live stream. What the fuckidy fuck fuck. I literally just finished a 1600 word rant on the subject. I will say being interested in politics and psychology this will be very interesting. Trump - Because George W Bush wasn't incompetent enough!

Thursday I went and saw Shapeshifter. I was near the front. A person was really annoying at the end; Kept spelling out shapeshifter, the tipping point was when she asked "Remember". Like she was asking remember how to spell it. I need a sign telling people I'm not an idiot. After that I think I mentally said FUCK YOU and covered the letters. I don't need protection from dancers, I need protection from stupid people. Good time apart from that. As additional entertainment; I decided to guess what drugs people were on. Best night in ages.

Friday I performed comedy at the Bears Christchurch event. That was fun. I would possibly do it again, even if I continue to do comedy extremely rarely in Christchurch. I like comedy for traveling purposes, so maybe I'll continue with that model, or not, undecided. I like making people laugh more than I like being famous; perhaps after music projects I'll investigate how best to do this. Plus having fame hasn't ever resulted in hot groupies. So fuck it.

Fireworks, Projects

 
Had fucking open homes this weekend, both days. I am now at the fireworks, it's fucking freezing, hurry the fuck up. Don't know if live blogging is a good idea. Now I am stuck in traffic. Fuck traffic. I hate traffic. Always fuck off from my places quickly otherwise the traffic gods will shit on you. Took some tablet pictures, because why the fuck not? Some came out good by my standards which I admit are disastrously low. This has taken over an hour. Fuck this van, I need a tank, or fighter jet.

I can in fact get a reasonably cheap version of a music application to create Trance music, will do that later this month. I hopefully have what I need for singing sync. I'll just finish my concert listing site before starting new music projects. I have decided on a brand for my internet buildings software,. Literally called Internet Buildings. Exciting to be working in this space. Hopefully once I launch some of these I can finally move to Auckland.

Vengaboys, business

 
Friday I went to Auckland, again. Usually I love going, but it's inconvenient to be away from my main programming computer. I didn't have to wait as long for the fucking dog this time. I like my apartment but the traffic is probably going to be noisy at night. So fuck that.

Saturday I went to a Vengaboys concert. Absolutely the worst seats ever to start but later people carried me down two steps and it was pretty decent. It would have been helpful if they put me back after instead of me having to wander around until staff did it.. I liked the way it had a DJ and he also brought on two singers Joanne and Sonique. Someone gave me a set list from the stage. Someone else put glow in the dark bands around my neck. People like to decorate cripples LOL! I thought they needed more original songs instead of dancing to music by other artists; I could do that myself.

Sunday I went home.

Business wise, I'm going to finish exhibition/virtual reality software and also has integrate it into ecommerce software. I am simultaneously creating accounting software. Next year I will launch more accessibility software too. I am thinking of trying to create Trance music in the second half of November. Found software and tutorials. Hopefully I can just purchase a cheap version.

Interact Arts Festival 2016

 
Tuesday I went to Auckland, why the fuck do I have to wait for an explosive sniffing dog every fucking time I go? If I was going to bomb something I would have done it by now. Other airports don't do this. Stupid fucking policy. The internet fucking sucks in the apartment, I hate fucking ridiculous internet; it is an essential tool so you would think that would be reliable.

Tuesday I am at the Interact Arts Festival, performing comedy tomorrow. I really hope they are expecting a family friendly show; I don't really do that. Guess I will find out.

Thursday I performed at Interact Arts Festival. There was a smoke machine. I enjoyed that while performing. Couldn't see my audience but heard laughter.

Friday I went home.

I have thought of a great new feature for my communication software. When I have no text loaded I could have placeholder text saying something like DON'T READ SCREENS WITHOUT ASKING to prevent people from doing so. Rude!

Saturday I went out for lunch, inconvenient.

Comedy, music, plans, Trump

 
Sunday I performed comedy; perhaps I could have chosen a better set. Still got some laughs.

I must say I'm getting better at creating graphics for websites. I am learning new techniques. Useful if you're too cheap to pay designers, and I am. Although having fuck all income from websites is also a big factor. My current project is creating a music gig listing site, which was my ambition three years ago, but got side tracked with comedy. I've been working on the backend software on and off for two years; doing a site for Christchurch Comedy also helped. I'll get the new site up running within a month with any luck.

I have suddenly decided since I hate being a fame whore (no offense to regular whores) I'll probably just see about releasing music through other people; managing a band etc. Either that or just buy a club when I am rich from technology. Possibly both. Yeah, in case you haven't noticed, I don't actually have a direction in my life. I pretty much think of shit and do it. Keeps life interesting. Also it's a good idea to form projects around your interests. Although other people are better off being financially stable and having one interest project. I have about ten significant business and interest projects and hoping my best years are just around the corner.

Normal people aim to start a family, I'm too cheap and selfish to do that LOL. I would rather work on things that interest me and travel the world when I am successful. I have already done some traveling with comedy some having project ADHD is not a bad thing. Life continues to be interesting, soon I'll launch several major ecommerce and accessibility software projects. Hopefully a new stage of life will begin.

I just encountered a Trump supporter that claims Hillary is mentally defective. Seriously? Please do not make that argument if you're supporting Trump. You're in the glassyest of glass glass houses. It's like me complaining someone is too crippled for using a cane. I find Hillary Clinton somewhat delusional. I also find Donald Trump to be utterly batshit crazy who doesn't rule out nuking Europe, who would bring back torture "even if it doesn't work", who has self destructive tendencies (6 bankruptcies), who can't run casinos without bankrupting them, who is braindead on 90% of issues, who appears to randomly grope and/or kiss women without their consent, who is desperate to appear rich and successful at any cost even the presidency. The somewhat delusional one sounds OK in comparison. Emotional attachment to a political party or candidate rots brain cells. Trump and Clinton supporters are evidence of this. If you think that Trump is competent there's something very very wrong with you. Ditto if you think Clinton is not a corporatist war hawk. You're both detached from reality; especially Trump supporters. What the fuck is wrong with Trump supporters?
