Apparently... from what I can tell... there is no way to make it landscape... because the stupid ass Moto X in landscape for some reason didn't make it landscape. And then there is now no way to make it cross over to Youtube easily.
TV is where it is at, and that's mostly thanks to shows like House of Cards leading the charge on alternate TV.
Pretty much every blockbuster movie this year has been a soulless affair. Outside of Chappie and Ex Machina (which both give you several things to think about), I haven't seen anything that transcends to a level where actual thought is required. Sure... Avengers was good but it wasn't something that required an ounce of thinking. As a matter of fact, I've decided that super hero flicks are no longer allowed on my "Best of" year end lists starting this year because they simply don't deserve to be labeled as "best of" anything. The same goes for big dinosaurs and anything Star Wars... they may be good but in the end they are mindless rides that offer up nothing new.
If you haven't watched the documentary on him, it is worth watching. I believe it is still on Netflix.
Very strange questions lately.
"Were you here? Were you there? Were you here? Do you have arthritis? Were you there?"
It was a "one of these things is not like the others" situation. ;-)
Oh... seriously? They only matter when a white devil is involved?
Ok, got it.... carry on...
Some of the toughest gun laws are in Chicago and yet violence is at an all time high. Proving gun restrictions are only keeping legal owners defenseless.
The race warlords won't show up because this was black on black or black on Spanish, or Spanish on black, or Spanish on Spanish crime... they need a white person in the mix for their 15 minutes of fame, glory, and race baiting to be effective. No whitey... then they don't care about black lives, Spanish lives, or any lives.
Let's not forget that Chicago is a Democrat controlled city too. This is what happens when the Democrats run things...
The truth can be hard to face.... but here it is...
- Cut down my Collections to 7 because honestly... too many collections is just too insane to deal with.
- Cut down the Collections I'm already following by "X" amount.... I lost count. Wow.... some people are doing a Collection for EVERY topic under the sun!!!!!
- Knocked out about half of my Communities because I had some needless crap in there... Even the Moto X one is gone now. I got tired of people whining for 5.1 and now they are whining because they got 5.1 and it sucks... Just a bunch of whining.
-Dropped several "company" profiles that I didn't really have any super interest in. Also, a number of the Google this and that (for Work, charities, etc....) that rarely post and then end up being something that has nothing to do with me.
So hopefully... What I will see now is what I want to see in my stream.
I need to rethink the way I post too... With the pictures in G+ separate from Photos and G+ pics count against you.... I'll probably do more linking for photos or maybe just less posting because the ease of cross posting has pretty much been torpedoed. I may just go back to blog for most things and then just shoot each post out to here from there.
Wow (Below).... using links to outside pics looks like shit!!!!!
