WordPress Meets Theme Edition

Last night was the 2nd WordPress gathering I have ever been too and more than likely the last. It wasn’t that awful it’s just as these meets are more geared towards people who use WordPress dot org than people like me who use dot com. Also I was the only blogger there. I did learn something about the editing tool that WordPress uses as for the Themes it is all common sense. Being on WordPress for 10 years I have learned a lot and I was thinking maybe I might see if I can host my own meet Blogging 101. I swear these meets are geared more towards those who make money off of people who use WordPress tools to make their own site than those like me who uses what is available and easy for those like us, who have no idea what a plug-in on WordPress actually does.

Originally I decided to go to these meets to make improvements to this blog and not feel like I wasted my time like in the last 2. In fact the only thing I did learn was some of the features of the Block Editor WordPress now uses so I can make my posts.

Unfair Censorship Online

Believe me when I say I have seen all sorts of videos on YouTube talk about their unfair censorship, Article 13 in the EU and so on. Me I am just a straight guy who likes looking at naked people occasionally. Why lie about that, when the truth is simpler and will explain some points of this article easier.

The other day I went to see how through the censorship was on some sites. In other words I went looking for porn, but since certain sexual acts actually makes me nauseous. I generally look for my porn in search engines. Why is simple I get to see what I want and avoid stuff frankly I don’t want to see.

So I started with YouTube, yes YouTube and here is why, I know like Dailymotion they have been cracking down on bare skin. I use to watch the Naked News on Dailymotion before sadly it was taken down for being too adult. I think the tits and seeing genitals of both sexes was too much for some. But it was a good newscast and I give them high marks for their coverage or lack of it depending on your view.

But getting back to YouTube did you know it is possible to find naked people? It sure is and it’s quite easy “If you know what your looking for”. It seems naked bodies are allowed in educational videos or those labeled as educational.

Like the following

See I am not joking naked people, and it gets better.

Yes even a Game Show where Nudity is apart of it also on YouTube

No funny links, no links to a site that have you know what streaming from them 100% YouTube and there is quite a bit I did not cover and can be easily found.

Now to what can not be found and like I said previously I use search engines. It seems Google and this is with Safesearch turned off, won’t allow adult sites and images to be shown. The same can be said of ixquick now Start Page dot Com.

On the other hand Bing and Yahoo those sites and images do cum up in such searches.

Why is this important when so many want to keep the internet clean. It also tells you which site will lead you to things that are currently borderline illegal, such as ROMS, videos of hard to find TV shows and films, even furry images which feature characters from projects such as Zootopia can be found.

Christmas Is Not About Religion

Christmas is not a religious event anymore it’s gone way too commerical for that. It’s all about the gifts and nothing else, I read something recently that said 47% of all gifts are returned to the store. But people will attempt to kill one another for what they think is the perfect gift. Not making a whole lot of money myself and Volunteering at the VA Hospital what I see are a lot of people that would be happy to get a scarf, or a bag filled with groceries. They are not going to fuss over something someone gave to them that they didn’t like. They are happy to get something, that someone is thinking about them and not being pushed under the rug like the people in Washington seem to be doing a lot these days. Go ahead celebrate the all mighty gift, at least I know by giving what I could to a needy Vet, that someone would be happy.

How Not to Make A YouTube Video

Before MFF I was encouraged to make video reports that would be posted to YouTube. I was told that they would be a great way to not only promote my blog but also myself.

You got to understand something I have seen 1,000s of videos. Quality ranging from high production value to absolutely crappy. That is how I see my own videos, sometimes my thoughts weren’t clear and don’t get me started about the video I made from my phone. I severally underestimated the sound pickup on my cell phone. Posting live video shots of the crowd and describing what I have seen and did would have made a great video. But to be honest I did not even think of it at the time.

I know me with my amateur skills the videos could have been way better. I am not trying to excuse myself but I am going through a lot of personal issues of late, that I rather not get into right now that left me distracted. You can see how much by the spotty coverage of MFF 2018 on this blog. Even the videos I made from my home, could have been way better. Everything from using a backdrop to a far better USB microphone, rather than one built-in to my laptop, not to forget the camera. Maybe I am being over critical but between now and when I post another video I am going to practice, practice, practice. I really want to make them something I am proud of rather than something I just did.

Did A Member of the Insane Clown Posse Goto MFF 2018?

Did Violent J of the Insane Clown Posse attend MFF 2018 as some reports have stated? The honest answer is….I don’t know. I know it looks as they did, but when you see reports coming from just 1 source and that same source has been accused of promoting a hoax in the past both on social media and YouTube. To me that source cannot be trusted, and when I was at MFF. I actually looked for them based upon the photos I saw online. For the record, I will not repost them, as I don’t want to be accused of promoting a hoax. Seriously even armed with a photo taken off the internet I could not find anyone who actually saw them, except for this 1 person who has been talking about this. I find it interesting that there isn’t a single photo of them taken at MFF. Really I invite you to look for yourself, I searched for 3 days and found none actually taken at MFF. In my opinion that the outside photo of Violent J in their fursuit wasn’t even taken in Rosemont, IL because the one standing nearby is dressed in a T-shirt. Let me tell you from someone who was actually there, IT WAS TOO FUCKIN’ COLD to wear a T-shirt. I wore a heavy coat, gloves and even a knit hat to MFF. Plus check the weather reports it didn’t even get out of the 30s F or single digits C, all during the con and it rained almost the full day on Saturday. There was snow on the ground Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and even parts on Sunday why aren’t they in that photo? Frankly, there are just too many questions to believe this report is real.

Unless I see a photo of them actually taken in Rosemont, IL as I know that town well. I will not believe that they were there.

Tumblr will ban all adult content on December 17th

The Verge recently did an article on how in 10 short days Tumblr will be banning all adult content. The article can be found here

So as a blogger I thought I throw in my thoughts about this. Even though I don’t post that much adult content, I can say that at least somewhere around 70% of all blogs are adult content sites. In search of material for this blog, I have seen just about everything and I include things that you will not find on Porn Hub and I am serious about this. Banning such content and making those posts private will either kill or cause about 70% of the blogs on Tumblr to move. The ones that aren’t being updated regularly will simply shut down.

If you think I am over exaggerating, just search the internet on your favorite search engine and type in adult blogs then look at the number of hits you get. The number is truly staggering, like any of my posts I ask you to check them out and see if I am right. This will just about kill Tumblr in my opinion.

Huffington Post Rudolph the Racist Reindeer (& heteronormative cisgender bigot) – Ben Shapiro Reacts

As time goes on more and more I consider myself a liberal and yes conservatives can be just as nutty as liberals. Like the one that wants to bring back public hanging and slavery for illegals. I am not making this up as this is far to easy to double check. I have watched Rudolph since I was a kid. I look at the story that he is rejected because he is different. Nothing more than in that other animated special, The Sissy Duckling. Rudolph is tame compared to others I could name. Look up A Wish for Wings That Work and tell me different. The world is crazy, and I know I am not the only one who believes this. Look we have a President who gave massive tax cuts to business and people are losing jobs, plus I am worried about my own healthcare. Tell an insurance company that you have a pre-existing condition, and watch them hang up the phone on you. Puerto Rico is part of the US and it gets ignored by Washington. I am a Liberal who believes everyone even illegals should be treated fairly. Also, that immigration in this country has been broken for decades and no elected official has the guts to fix this mess. Wherein Legals do get deported, usually without a good reason or warning. Also taking power away from an elected official only because your candidate lost is just plain wrong no matter which side of the aisle your on.
