Introduction

As of Jan 2015 I'm no longer "active" on G+ or most social media. Here and there I will post something that I think is of interest but I'm no longer sharing "myself" online. I will be deleting most of my online presences eventually. I am leaving my G+ account for posterity. I'm proud to have been a G+ user since 2011. My shares still will have comments locked to the public. Only people in my private circle will be allowed to interact with my shares. If you'd like to be in that circle just drop me a message and let me know.


====== MY SHARE SUBJECTS ======

I have a variety of diverse and odd interests that I am most likely to share here on G+. I don't separate my interests into circle groups so if you add me to your stream you may see some stuff that is ok with you and some stuff that is not. I am a multifaceted person and I see and appreciate all kinds of things in the world, some of which are wildly juxtaposed. My opinions on things can be brutal, bizarre, tannic, sick (as in awesomely epic), perverse, and darkly humorous but all of them reflect the reality of how I feel and are completely me.

====== THE SHORT OF IT ======

"You think I am wicked and immoral and selfish - so I am, according to your standards, but not according to my own. According to my own, I am singularly pure, uncontaminated, and high principled. You will laugh, but it is true. And you can laugh all your life, but it will still be true."  -Violet Keppel

The world disgusts me. People's willful ignorance disgusts me. People's selfishness disgusts me. There is nothing I can do and there is no other escape for me. I cannot "adjust" and pretend I don't see things that are clearly there. The world is upside down and backwards and I have no loyalty to such a place. Asking me to learn to adapt and accept things that are just fundamentally wrong is insane. I see too much and I have long since had enough. Even if I blinded myself it wouldn't stop me from being disgusted and tainted by the ignorance, selfishness, blindness, and negativity of the world ... it's an airborne virus ...

I once ate human flesh and I thought it was fucking delicious. I would pay someone for more right now ...

OMG I love the first Lawnmower Man back in the day .. it was WAY WAY ahead of itself :) 
A VR film company is rebooting the movie that taught many kids to fear the hell out of virtual reality. Jaunt announced that it’s developing a new series based on the 1992 cult classic The Lawnmower Man, only viewable with a virtual reality headset.

The secret is SHE'S AN IMMORTAL GODDESS OF EPICNESS that's the damn secret :) #HellYes #HaJiWon 
On January 22’s episode of MBC’s “Section TV,” actress Ha Ji Won shared her tips on how to maintain a youthful appearance. Known for her unchanging beauty, the 38-year-old actress was asked for her secret. She half- jokingly replied, “I think you have to be immature.” She clarified her answer by saying, “It’s important for women to avoid receiving stress. You age if you get stressed.” When asked if she doesn’t receive stress, Ha Ji Won replied, “...

On Piracy ...

“There are arguments for and against piracy, and I can totally see both sides, I really can, but it seems to be a generational split. My kids will NEVER know what it’s like to pay for music – but I will never let them download movies, we buy everything. It goes into the work and money spent making movies. I think if a hundred million people go see Avengers, then does [piracy] hurt? No. Because those people pay for tickets. But a movie like mine, it’s $500,000 – we sold it for less than that. It doesn’t mean go and steal Avengers, or does it? I’m not sure. I really think it’s a generational thing. We LOVED tapes and CDs. We loved the art, the liner notes, the photos. Kids today will NEVER know that. They just play it on YouTube, and the quality is terrible, so to them, they’re doing nothing wrong. I guess my argument is, mine was a small film, and if the investors on an indie film lose money, guys who did it strictly for the passion, that kind of sucks for everyone involved. Once you see Transformers 5 make $400 million, if you’re okay with it, download it." - Casey Tebo (Emmy-award winning director)

Today’s transition of power means the White House website is undergoing a few transitions of its own. We’re approaching two hours after Trump officially became our 45th President, and his transition to the White House has already led to change — to the official White House website. Gone are all mentions (sitewide) of climate change. Also …

Jen Brea, a brave woman who became ill with myalgic encephalomyelitis, a neurological disease that’s more commonly known as “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”, recounted her long, frustrating struggle to get herself properly diagnosed in a powerful TED Talk. Her quest for answers was an uphill struggle in that her doctor’s did not understand her profound symptoms, so they instead attributed her illness to a psychological disorder. This frustration of not knowing, lead Brea to become an outspoken advocate for invisible illnesses and autoimmune diseases, both of which are known to be either misdiagnosed or dismissed completely.

Was thinking about this the other day ... 
Proportional theory, telescopy, time pressure, and the reminiscence bump may each play a role.
