As you can see I have updated the theme of the blog and there is going to be a Frenetic Friday.
So my laptop died the other day and I had to replace the hard drive with a new one. I opted for a solid state drive and after I installed the drive and reinstalled the operating system I was doing my usual “Things to do after installing Xubu 16.04 LTS” when I noticed a caveat regarding solid state drives. It was a warning that solid state drives need a few extra tweaks to make it work well and long. So I have yet to do the tweaks because, well, I haven’t done this before and my natural inclination is to read about it five times and then do it around midnight.
So I am obsessing over the fine tuning, and since it is spring Mrs. Keachfan wants me to remove non-working hardware. Which everything in my little hacker heart screams no. So I will be busy this week and still try to get a few thing written.
Yeah I know I haven’t done a Frenetic Friday for awhile. I am going to get back into the swing of things now that I am not in a constant job search mode. Until then a little reminder.
Yes it’s true, at long last the first Frenetic Friday of the year.
So as regards to politics well frankly I am waiting until the old president leaves and the new president is sworn in before I start paying attention too much to all of this however, I do want to point you to this podcast by Mike Rowe. He’s the dirty jobs guy in case you didn’t know and he has a podcast called The Way I heard it with Mike Rowe. But I would especially point you to Episode 36 titled: “Oh Brother” it does put a few things in perspective. Give it a listen.
So have you’ve heard of Camille Pagilia right? She is famous or infamous for her critic of feminism but here in this video she points out that transgender mania is actually a sign of cultural collapse and points to history that shows this what happens before the culture ends.
Speaking of marriage let me introduce to the newest couple, I mean single, I mean couple, okay I am confused what is going on here? Erika Anderson stands on rooftop in Brooklyn and marries herself to herself. What? Yep it seems that the latest trend in marriage is not a same sex couple, not multiple partners (polygamy/polyamory), nope the latest trend is marrying yourself. Instead of two becoming one, the one is becoming one. And as Rebecca Traister, author of All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation says: “It’s not a legal process — you won’t get any tax breaks for marrying yourself. It’s more a “rebuke” of tradition.” No kidding. But it appears to be a semi lucrative business as “on the website I Married Me, you can buy a DIY marriage kit: For $50, you get a sterling silver ring, ceremony instructions, vows, and 24 “affirmation cards” to remind you of your vows over time. For $230, you can get the kit with a 14-karat gold ring.” <source>
BTW in 2013 in an blog post on the Pyromaniac’s Blog Frank Turk predicted this very thing based on the rise of same sex marriage. See here
Also a sad good by to one of the more articulate and erudite bloggers Frank Turk. He has decided to close shop and leave blogging and twitter. His farewell post is here: The End I owe much to Frank he along with Phil Johnson and Dan Phillips alway made me think deeper and clearer even if I didn’t agree with them. Farewell sir, God speed.
And good night to you all.
Well the only tune in my head isn’t, I just hear the voices with the interesting ideas. Tune in (see what I did there) next week for another earworm.
It is June 10th 2016 and this Frenetic Friday!
So first an important word from Mike Rowe:
Parents point your children to this.
“This is Emmy, mailing our letter to the prenatal specialist who didn’t want her to live. He repeatedly suggested we abort. He said her and our quality of life would be horrible.” Emmy’s mother Courtney Baker says, “He was so unbelievably wrong. I want to do something to advocate, but other than my letter to him, I don’t know what yet.”
Courtney Baker’s letter which you can read here talks about her love for her daughter Emmy and the how she had to deal with her doctor who kept pressuring her to abort saying that Emmy would affect their “quality of life”.
But as Courtney points out her child is perfect, Emmy isn’t a mistake and she enhances the quality of life not takes away from it. Not only her family but in thousands of other families too.
So have you heard of AB/DL? Well list this one under the downward spiral of moral degeneracy if we can call any thing degenerate any more. But I know you’re asking what is AB/DL? Well it is Adult Baby Diaper Lovers. Frankly I don’t know if I want to list this under Peter Pan syndrome or just plain lunacy. But there is a store in Illinois called Tykables that specialize in adult size diapers for adults that want to be babies. Yes I am well aware of the oxymoronic nature of that statement. But not only that at the store in their “nursery area’ is a giant crib, high chair, and rocking horse for people to take pictures of themselves no doubt while clad in the diaper. <source>
Now let us journey to the Great White North for a momentous court decision that just happened.
Most bestiality is legal, declares Canada’s Supreme Court
The Court left it up to Parliament to better define the term.
Oh and while I am at it over at VOX Alan Noble has written “Evangelicals like me can’t vote for Trump — or Clinton. Here’s what we can do instead.” If you don’t want to choose between two evils of equal value I suggest you read the article.
And no this isn’t a parody this is what a particular United Church of Christ put up on their Facebook page:
So keep in mind no matter what if you are white you are racist.
And now for some good news.
In South Korea Jung Gwang-il is working with a music studio, producer and a former singer of North Korean propaganda songs to create “stealth gospel music”. In Korea the only music allowed is songs praising the Kim family the hereditary dictators of North Korea. Jung Gwang-il is taking those songs and changing them so instead of praising the Kim family they praise Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Jung says: “It sounds exactly the same as what you would hear in North Korea, the same accompaniment, the same type of voice, but the names have all been changed, [The customs officials] aren’t going to sit there and listen to each song, because the music sounds the same to what they’re used to hearing,”
Although Jung Gwang-il says the stealth gospel music is not meant for proselytizing people but rather exposing them to new ideas let us hope and pray that hearing about Jesus causes the gospel to be heard once again in the hermit kingdom. <source>
Lastly a Ted Talk Parody
Good night folks.
So long story short I have been working long hours at my place of work and I am mind numbing tired. So rather than have a sub par post I am going to postpone Frenetic Friday for a week.
Well you may have noticed that there wasn’t a special Saturday. There is an old saying that deals with men and a sovereign God that goes man proposes and God disposes, (Homo proponit, sed Deus disponit), check out Proverbs 16:33.
So there were a number of things that happened, one of which was me getting an eye infection, loss of Wi-Fi, and just sheer procrastination. Now most of those have been addressed, I am still working on the procrastination business but it is being addressed.
So I apologize for not following through with my posting. I will strive to do better. I had a brother in the Lord encourage me just this morning to not lose the ground I’ve made but to keep going on to the end. Something we all need to be reminded of from time to time. So thanks for sticking with me.
So Frenetic Friday has gone so what happened? Well as near as I can figure between the actual website and my android app something was synchronized wrong. And when I tried to make it right it went wrong.
But not to fear there will be a new Frenetic Friday next Friday.
Well today I am not having a movie review here but later in the week there will be my review of the movie Fury starring Brad Pitt over on Credo Covenant. Look for the URL when it becomes available.
