Marking 13,000 Posts!…

Date: June 07, 2022

Unlike previous milestones of this nature, this post is not exactly post number 13,000…It’s probably a dozen past that mark.

It’s funny, because I had a gut feeling a little while [minutes, literally] ago…that I needed to check where my post count was at…and I found out I was about to blow right past the 13,000 count.

Don’t ask me…I’ve never been able to explain this weird “talent”…It trips me out.

Let’s charge on to 14,000, shall we?

Who Actually Controls Gas Prices?…

Date: June 07, 2022

“Gas prices are high again?!?”

A quibble over Ukraine “being a sovereign nation” aside…[because nations which rely on billions in yearly aid from other nations, and other nations funding/supplying their wars, are not honestly sovereign.]…

…Do remember what you’ve learned from this video, especially if you’re one of those uneducated weirdos who likes accusing the over worked, under paid person behind the counter, or even just the individual gas station itself, of personally being behind “the gouging of you”…

Gas stations in the U.S. follow a model far more like that of movie theaters in the U.S…

…They don’t make their personal profits, from what initially gets most people inside the store.

Profits from gas sales, to the immediate people selling it to the public, are very modest…Likely not even worthwhile, in their own right…You are forced to sell a lot of other things, in order to augment this business model.

So…next time anyone wants to make a snarky or nasty comment to the person behind the counter…a person who is making nothing additional during all of this…who is getting raped at the pumps just as bad as you…who is “gaining” nothing more than your nasty abuse…a person who’s likely spent days/weeks consoling, apologizing and empathizing with people, over these bullshit gas prices nobody can afford…Get A Fucking Clue…

Don’t be an asshole.

That business does not have to serve you…And the person behind the counter is not obliged to take your abuse.

Neil is putting into words my own process, as I journeyed to becoming a self accepting pedophile…

…There was no rationality, sanity or humanity in the constant public aggression…Till eventually, it just lost it’s integrity as I began to see completely through it…to recognize it’s gross failings, and ugly ulterior motives.

It falls flat and has no impact on me, today.

I see it all as utterly foolish babbling, from sad people who are lacking in humanity.

These aren’t people who know what they’re talking about…

…These are people who want a scapegoat, to take their daily aggression and frustrations out on.

Why Gen Z Doesn’t Care About Music…

“I discuss my theory as to why the GEN Z generation doesn’t care about music.”

So…it’s an overload of stimulation drowning out the music?

That’s possible.

I find the video game streamers boring…and never watch more than a few minutes of what they put out, if I bother watching any of their content at all.

Normally…I like well made video game reviews…and solid/fun commentary on the video game industry…maybe a bit of industry news, to keep up with what’s going on…

…But I cannot imagine setting here for hours, watching other people play most video games…That’s just torture…and I’d normally only do it, if I’m stuck on a particular game and I need to find out how to get beyond something.

Tutorials are good…but just watching someone play, for the sake of watching how they play?…No, Thank You!

There’s not enough great music put out broadly these days, to really get people to notice and bond with it.

…Most of it is just more generic and passable…but not something that “makes your spirit dance and soar”.

When I first started falling in love with music, I was probably nine or ten…and I had to get lucky, to happen across it again over the radio…I loved when I would finally hear it again.

So much about the finite nature of how we received and experienced music, made it mean more to us…made it more precious to us…because it wasn’t there at all times, with the mere push of a button.

Today…music feels like it’s delegated to background noise…At work, I often find myself turning it off.

I often function better, when it’s quiet…or more quiet…Sad, but true.

DEPP GATE Begins? Media Thinks You’re a BAD PERSON for Supporting Johnny!…

“If you support Johnny Depp, the media and Twitter activists literally think you’re “nazi adjacent” and have no problem telling you so. Will this latest media blitz kick off “Depp Gate” or “Johnny Gate?” Will the general public see this for what it actually is — activist journos attempting to gaslight and manipulate a large group of people by calling them mean names?”
