Has it really been almost a year and a half since I started this quest of going back to school?
Damn. Time flies when you’re studying and drinking.
Only this time around, I’m a bit older and a bit wiser, so I’m not drinking AS MUCH as I did when I first went to college about seven years ago. I had way too much fun back then. That’s actually one of the reasons why I went back.
Other then the student debt, I’m glad I went back. The field of study I’m in has a high hiring rate after graduation, one of the highest in the school.
There is also a lot of opportunities for self-employment in this field as well. Something I’m considering doing once I graduate, to help pay the loan bills.
I have to admit, it feels sort of strange to have, dare is say a, “Vision” of what I want to do after graduation. I usually just kind of go with the flow and see what happens. But having an idea of what I want to do in nine months is another good change.
Pass or Fail
So, how exactly did I do? What where my grades like? How about I show you:
Not bad, eh? Considering I never got any certificates or diplomas from college all those years ago. I barely went to class. And when I did, I was usually a few beers deep or stoned out of my mind, or both.
Oh well, you live and learn. And this year I certainly learned, a lot.
Here’s to the beginning of a fun and productive summer!
The vibe at the scene of the exhibit is one of fun, uncertainty, and tension. There were people chanting the annoying popular phrase, “He Will Not Divide Us!”, playing tambourines and other hippy instraments. And of course there were real life shitposters and trolls, as seen from their MAGA hats.
For the most part people were just shouting, chanting, and talking shit. Luckily it didn’t escalate. Cops were at the scene.
From his latest video on his periscope account we can see two people, one presumably a Trump supporter, the other a noticabely butthurt individual.
Two guys started chirping each other. Then a police man came over. This lead to the crowd erupting in a new chant of, “BLUE LIVES MATTER! BLUE LIVES MATTER!” A dig at the now defunct #BlackLivesMatter movement. That movement seemed to sort of disappear over night, strange eh?
I think Shia’s idea was stupid. To have people come up to a live stream and virtue signal to the masses. But what Shia doesn’t realise is that his passion for post-modern garbage has now created a new platform – giving people a free IRL Trolling Service.
It’s like a real life Twitter trolling thread came to life!
How much do you want to bet that this, “Exhibit” of his gets taken over by Trump supporters and is taken down within the first year…
…I sure hope so.
UPDATE: HAHA told you so!
Shia says good-bye-a to his precious, “art project”. FAIL!
Tinder is now available on Apple TV. Why you might ask? I thought the same thing.
I’m still trying to figure that one out. In the mean time, lets have some fun with these silly people.
Invite friends and family
Yes, because my friends and family don’t have anything to do with their time other then sit around while I ogle over woman I’ll never fuck.
put out the chips and dip
That’s actually a good idea. You have to remember to be a good host while sharing your Tinder experience with your loved ones. They need to keep their energy up while you arrange dates with single moms that ride horses and have a giant German Sheppard and their grandpa in their profile pic.
How else are you supposed to know she’s adventurous, is an animal lover, and loves her Papa? Ya, I couldn’t think of another way either.
We’ve combined all the joys of swiping with all the comforts of your home
Wrong! You missed one: swiping on the shitter. There’s nothing more joyous than dropping a huge deuce while reading yet another profile that says, “Not looking for hookups, I’m so over that!”
Hey, she seems like a keeper! (*plop*)
Next, here are some promotional ads that Tinder and Apple put together. And let me tell you, they sure are revealing.
She’s Not Good Enough for My Boy!
Hey Ma! Get the hell outta here so I can find a chubby 6 and get a handjob, on your couch, cuz I’m unemployed!
Now in the comfort of your own home (or your parents) you can find, “The One” on a TV, in all its 70inch HD-4K-3D glory.
Shut up Dad! Don’t you slut shame me!
Now you and your bff can look for bad boys to, “just take you” on that gross 1970s couch.
He’ll probably never call you again.
(PS – I’d be careful on that couch, your brother was using it the other day, eww.)
Um Mom, I could really use a Dad, you know, since I wasn’t raised with a father figu…..okay I’ll shut up.
(This year has been an eye opener for me, and I’m sure for some of you as well. I decided to test my unplugging to see if I can pierce the veil of mainstream culture by dissecting the bullshit that is promoted by its “Soldiers of the Narrative” i.e. Celebrities (or wanna be celebs). Oh, and to also have some fun! This is Part VII of The D Live Culture Series.)
As 2016 comes to an end, lets all look back and be grateful that our friends and family made it through another difficu….wait what?
Yes I’m white that’s correct. Why yes I’m a male.
I see. So I’m excluded from the conversation because of my gender and skin colour? Oh okay. Thanks for clearing that up.
Well, while I contemplate why I should hate myself and feel guilty for the fact I didn’t choose my parents, genes, environment, and especially the melanin on my epidermis, watch this video from The Representation Project. If you don’t, you’re a bigot:
And here I thought 2016 was the Year of the Monkey. Is that racist?
2016 Was The Year of Toxic Masculinity
2016 WAS A TUMULTUOUS YEAR….
I’ll fucking stop you right there, “Tumultuous”? You SOB’s made me have to google search what that word means. Right off the bat I can tell you suck. Nobody needs to use words like that, unless they want to sound smart. I’m a normal dude and I’ve NEVER said that stupid word. Although, I have to keep my cool. I should expect this from these people.
Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson is filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against network Chairmen and CEO Roger Ailes. More than two dozen other women said Ailes used his status to sexually harass his employees.
Bullshit. Roger looks like that fish dude from the Phantom Menace. NO WAY broads let him touch their hoo-ya.
Meesa REFUSE to believe it!
For the second time in two days a police killing of a black man…
“We got pulled over for a busted tail light and the pol-eece just killed my boyfriend – “fuck!””
A massacre in a gay night club, fifteen people were killed…
WHO AND WHAT IS TO BLAME FOR ALL OF THIS???!!!
“You know what they say about men with small hands?” – Marco Rubio
Yes, in fact I do. It means their cock is tiny. Oh Mark, you’re so funny.
“Aw you gotta see this guy, “Aw I dunno what I said ughhh I don’t REMEMBER!” -Donald J. Trump
“We are going to kick your rear-ends out of the White House!” – Chris Christie
Oh dear! He said “rear-ends”! What a horrible, disgusting person!
*Cue fainting-couch lady
“Get out of here! GET OUT!”
“You are a loser.”
“I would like to punch him in the face.”
“LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP!” – Donald J. Trump
“And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything…Grab them by the pussy.” – Donald. J Trump
I know it may be hard for some people to realise, but it was a different time back then. People courted each other differently.
When a man was interested in a lady he would saunter up to the gal and firmly, but gracefully, extend his arm and hand and then clasp her clam.
And if the woman was enticed by his grasping of her snatch, she would reciprocate by coiling her finger back into a nice closed-package and flick his prick with jarring force, and then skip into the bush expecting him to follow.
It’s was the dance-of-love for it’s time. A beautiful thing really.
“She doesn’t have the look. She doesn’t have the stamina.”
“She’s actually not strong enough to be President.” – Donald J. Trump
“I’m much richer than almost anybody.” – Donald J. Trump
“Don’t you think a man who has this kind of economic genius is a lot better for the United States than a woman….” (they cut it off right there) – Rudy Juliani
“Every woman lied. All of these liars will be sued.”
“I am going to instruct my Attorney General to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.” – Donald J. Trump
“When Mexico sends its people…they’re rapists…”
“You have inner cities that are more dangerous than some war zones.”
“BUILD THAT WALL! BUILD THAT WALL!” – Donald J. Trump
Nearly 900 incidents of hate were reported in the ten days following the election.
A throwback to the days of segregation.
Of course, we’re now back in the sixties. Because these couldn’t possibly be hoaxes. These days it’s nothing like it was back then. Man, these losers make my head hurt!
Wait, YOU did this?! I thought it was my fault because I had a penis. Now I’m confused.
“Also, give us your money.”
Phew – what a year!
A few things:
I would bet some of these quotes they used in the video were taken out of context. Just a hunch.
I’m not defending everything Trump and others said. I’m just not getting butt-hurt over it. In fact, I’m having fun with it. And you should too.
Feel free to have some fun in the comments below!
Unless you’re a white man. In that case, go fuck yourself.
The 27-year-old is an enthusiastic and unreserved homer, who spent the slog that was the 2013 season serving as the Blue Jays’ professional cheerleader inside the MLB Fan Cave.
As a kid she and her Dad would go on baseball road trips from their home in Campbellton, NB, and nothing would make eight-year-old April happier than stuffing her face with cotton candy while wailing her arms in the air as the wave rolled through her section.
But now even she has had enough. The wave, Whitzman says, has jumped the shark.
Oh, I would love to hear your reasoning for why this fun pass time has, “jumped the shark.”
Anti-wave activists can list a litany of reasons why the practice should be banned. It’s a sign of amateurishness and bad fandom; it’s annoying for the people who want to watch the game and it may even distract the players. Whitzman won’t name names, but she said that during her time in the MLB Fan Cave a handful of pros told her they couldn’t stand it.
But the biggest beef is that those conducting the wave tend to choose a pivotal moment in the game to steal the spotlight. “Timing is everything,” Whitzman says.
Anti-wave activists. Also known as party-poopers.
Lets look at their righteous reasons:
sign of amateurishness
Amateurishness – “a lack of the level of skill associated with an expert or professional”
First of all, nobody uses that word. Secondly, since when was going to a baseball or football game (or any sporting event for that matter) a skill one can be an expert of professional in?
Chill out. It’s just a game.
Being a fan is being part of a subculture. The fans you share a common team with and have companionship with makes being at the games even more fun. But hey, guess what, the people who do the wave are part of a subculture too.
And just like you can have a rival team, you can have rival sub cultures. The thing is, the other ‘team’ isn’t trying to get the other one silenced.
it’s annoying for the people who want to watch the game
Making a stink about people standing up and waving their arms and having a good time is no excuse to try and get it banned from stadiums.
If you’re there to just watch the game, how about, oh I don’t know, stay home and watch it!
Or, here’s a crazy idea, ignore them.
Feeling like you’re part of the game is way more fun. Try it out some time.
It’s like these people leave their special snowflake castles (their homes) then go out in the pubic and complain that their personal space isn’t as cozy.
Well hey guess what, life isn’t cozy. You get what you get and you don’t get upset.
it may even distract the players
If fans in the seats doing the wave distracts professional athletes during a game, then those professional athletes are no longer professional. Their skill set better be good enough to be able to play with distractions like that.
Have you ever been to a European football (soccer) match? There is no way a hastag like #KillTheWave would start.
Imagine if you were to complain to a Scot that he cannot say, “Ole ole ole ole!”
It would be pande-fucking-monium. Just be glad it’s not like that here in your precious fooseball game.
Also, when at a baseball game, I love when someone stands up and chirps the pitcher. It’s all part of the game.
But the biggest beef is that those conducting the wave tend to choose a pivotal moment in the game
THAT IS WHAT THE WAVE IS FOR!
To get up, get pumped up, and rally the troops to make a come back, or stay ahead.
Whitzman doesn’t want to be a killjoy. She says if there is a young kid in her row she’ll make an effort. But we aren’t teaching our children right if we encourage them to participate in the wave during an important part of the game, she says
So you’re recognizing you’re being a butt hurt buzzkill, but please, will someone think of the children!
Josh Murray, 33, leads a silent protest every time the wave rolls through his section at the Rogers Centre. He stays glued to his seat and hopes others follow suit. But he has had little success convincing others.
Josh, when was the last time you got laid? That long huh. Wow.
“I would be happy to never see The Wave again,” he said. “But short of public shaming the people who are doing it, I’m not sure what to do.”
You could take your limp wrist and try slapping those waving mother fuckers. But, then again, you’ve probably never been in a fight have you Josh. That’s why you shamming people is all you know.
Until then, she’ll continue to fight the good fight (EDIT: and Joshy boy will be right there with her, holding her purse).
The good fight, wow. You guys must have nothing important to spend your time with other then looking for things to complain about.
This isn’t a new phenomenon, it’s been around for a few years. But this is the first time I’ve heard about people trying to #KillTheWave.
I’ll be sure to post this to the hashtag for all those killjoys to see.
I did a little more hunting around and found that the common theme of these Anti-fun activists is: It’s Annoying
There’s that ‘muh feelz’ meme again. I’m starting to think The D Live Culture Series will have a never ending supply of things to write about.
(This year has been an eye opener for me. I decided to test my unplugging to see if I can pierce the veil of mainstream culture by dissecting the bullshit that is promoted by its “Soldiers of the Narrative” i.e. Celebrities. This is Part I of The D Live Culture Series.)
The featured image is from Jim Gaffigan’s new book, “Dad Is Fat.”
This is NOT a review of his book.
This is a post about a comedian who is blatantly virtue signalling to the masses. This isn’t new. But it sure is revealing.
These days a man can’t define his own masculinity without it being filtered through the good ol F.I. (feminine imperative).
I’ve got an email subscription to the BigThink blog. It’s like a science-meets-pop-culture info and news site. There’s usually some cool articles and videos on quantum mechanics, cosmology, and neuroscience.
But, of course, there is some blue pill bs that can be found throughout the site.
I received an email notification about BigThink’s newsletter, I opened it up on my phone, and looked for something cool to read.
And then I found this:
Did you watch that? It was brutal I know. A soft skin low-t man telling you how to be a man.
Lets have some fun with Jim, and dissect his lovely video.
Manhood is Defined by How Men Treat Women
The idea of being a man has changed so dramatically, right.
I’m with you so far Jim.
But particularly I think not just the responsibilities of being a father which has always been, not to get all Kahlil Gibran like these children are on loan to us and we’re supposed to make sure that we take care of them and we’re the stewards of these human beings. Male roles which is something my wife and I have written about in the show because the concept of a father today is dramatically different.
And why exactly is the ‘concept’ so different now?
Who said a Father’s responsibility has to change?
A Father’s responsibility is to provide for a child a competent male role model, which you mentioned, but that idea of Manhood, and male role models, must be defined by men. Full stop.
Vice versa, Womanhood should be defined by women.
I think it’s perspective on how we treat women, right. That is the beginning and the ending of it. We are animals. I start from that premise. And we choose to not behave like animals. And that’s, you know, a pretty guiding force through humanity whether it gets completely out of control or just panting like a dog when an attractive woman walks by.
The beginning and the end of it. Sure why not. You can end conversation and debate about Manhood right there, because there couldn’t possibly be any other definition, right?
You know, it was a guiding force for civilization, but we’re animals panting like a dog at attractive women. So, stop being all manly!
I even look at like pornography and all this stuff where it’s yeah, you know, it’s like look, I love naked women, I really do.
I see, virtue signalling to men now, “Hey I mean, I’m a dude so I like porn too.”
But I also know that I am a visual human being and I can’t, you know, consume images of naked women and not have that influence how I view other women. I mean that’s my personal opinion. It’s like my sexual desires are very valid and real but if I, you know, follow through on every sexual desire first of all I’d have a thousand children. No but I think then that’s not how you get – I wouldn’t feel very good. Do you know what I mean?
I think I know what you mean. You see an attractive woman, think about the dirty, nasty, and filthy things you want to do to her, and then would also like to do that to other women you find attractive. BUT, you seem to imply men should feel shame about it, because you, “wouldn’t feel very good” about, basically, fulfilling your biological imperative.
When I look at my young sons I think that look, I know that we love and like the normalization of porn and I’m not, you know, it’s like to each their own, right. But I don’t think that I want my sons consuming pornography.
I’m with Jim on this one, I also wouldn’t want my sons to consume too much porn either. However, should we “love” or even “like” the normalization of porn? Doesn’t that lead to rape culture (according to the feministas)?
That’s not a good thing to teach your sons Jim.
I want my sons to look at an advertisement and say that is a beautiful woman but she’s being objectified.
Jim, are you against women working?
What if she made the decision to use her body like that to provide an income for herself?
I think she has enough agency to make that decision. Or, was she helplessly convinced by male management to show off her goods?
I’m confused, we all love the normalization of porn but it’s objectifying to have a beautiful woman on an advertisement. Interesting, Jim.
And I do want even beyond that I personally think that in the United States we give credit and appreciate attractive people too much.
That’s exactly what an ugly person would say.
And so I think that I want to instill that, I mean I think a lot of parents who desperately want to have nerdy children. So I don’t know. I want my kids to be, my sons to be better men than me. But I think also, you know, it’s different paths to getting there.
Wanting your sons to be better men than you is admirable. But I still sense some shame coming from Jim.
He might feel he’s not the man his sons should turn out to be.
Also, I don’t want my kids to be nerdy, do you?
But culturally it’s interesting. I saw a clip of Match Game which was a game show when I was growing up from the mid-70s, 80s, I don’t know. And the beginning of the show it was just filled with the host more or less sexually harassing the female contestants. And it was not malicious and that man did not know he was doing it. And maybe those women didn’t feel icky. But from our standards today it was ridiculous.
Did you just say icky? Dammit Jim, can you at least try?
It wasn’t malicious, the men weren’t even “aware of what they were doing (i.e. harassing)”and the women weren’t bothered by it. So whats’s the problem?
I mean I also feel like to discredit everything I’ve said I also think that I don’t want us to get to the point where there isn’t passion, right.
He was barley aware of his cognitive dissonance.
I would bet he has no idea where that passion comes from, how that passion is supposed to be manifested, or even interpreted.
But he seems to know that passion is needed. But not the “icky” kind of course.
When I met my wife and we went on our first date I aggressively kissed her. Not in a monstrous way but even hearing myself describe it I don’t know if we could do that today. And I’m sure I could have because there’s a communication that’s unspoken when you’re courting someone. But courting like it’s the 1800s. Like you’re riding a horse to meet them. But there is something about – there’s rules but there’s also what’s so great about relationships is that tingling feeling when the chemistry that we can’t articulate works.
The fear of being direct with a women is rampant here in the West. Don’t be afraid. Make a move. If you’re not sure how, go here.
Hey, I’m no PUA, but I recognize when I should make a move and I don’t hesitate. You shouldn’t either. Women want an aggressively sexual man. Don’t believe the blue pill hype.
You have to be comfortable enough to make a move and potentially strike out. That’s how an attractive male is moulded. You listening Jim?
What do you guys think?
How were my observation skills?
Is there anything to add?
What are your thoughts on Manhood, Fatherhood, and Male Role Models?
