Have you ever had one of those days in which the day itself did nothing but fuck with you?

That was my today.

Google’s Supermassive Black Hole

I had it confirmed to me this week while I was on the road something I suspected for awhile, that the Googitburo is screwing with my online presence that runs through it, including YouTube and GMail.  Some important e-mails I sent, were never received, some sent to me, I never got.

I have created a whole new profile, including a new GMail account and a new YouTube comment screen name.  Those of you who e-mail me regularly, I’ll provide you with the e-mail.  As for YT, for a long time, and until now, my YT video comments had the screen name “countenanceblog,” but now, they’ll be my Disqus name, “Question Diversity.”

If I still have trouble, then that’s how I’ll know that both Larry and Sergey have it out for me personally.





Need a Photoshop Savage

Since you’re reading the only St. Louis-based and at least partially-focused Alt-Right node, I think Countenance Blog needs its own flag.

I need a Photoshop savage to merge the designs of these two flags.  The first one, we all know.  The second is the flag of St. Louis.

I’d also be curious if anyone wants to mash up Kekistan and Confederate Battle.





Fidget Spinner

Countenance Blog is our society’s in general and the Alt-Right’s fidget spinner.  The Alt-Right is the Western world’s fidget spinner.

Alternatively, this medium is my fidget spinner.  Because this shit would drive me crazy if I wasn’t able to make fun of it.





20,000

Just to prove that consistency is A Thing, when I reached 10,000 posts on June 24, 2012, considering the blogging pace I was on, I estimated that I’d reach 20,000 posts in mid-June 2017.

I’m two weeks early.

It also means that my 2,000 post a year pace has been rather steady for quite a long time.

From time to time, I get the question about where is my tip jar, or where I can send a donation.  The answer is there is no tip jar, and don’t send donations.  This is and has always been purely a labor of love hate love for me.  It doesn’t take up much of my time — For one of many reasons, notice that few of my posts are ever that long.  Most of my posts are just one or two line tabloid-snark.  I’ve also never felt the pressure to blog just for the sake of blogging.  I’ll blog when I’m in the mood, and it’s just a matter of open text editor, type away, cut paste proofread publish.  I also have no desire to move into the YouTube/video sector.  One, I can’t afford to out myself like that, two, those of you who know me personally will agree when I say that the strength of my language and communication portfolio is way more the written word than the spoken word.  Oratorically, I am really heavy on my feet, and I need a script or at least an outline.

If there’s any disappointment from this milestone, it’s that, now that I’m finally able to devote all my professional energy to my startup as of the start of this week, aiming for a public debut (in as much as my startup is really intended for mass public consumption; I’ll fill in the blanks in due time) after the Fourth of July.  That may interfere with my blogging time, but once again, since it doesn’t take up much of my time, all it might do is make me do posts sooner or later than I would ordinarily.

Housekeeping:  May 2017 was a record traffic month for this medium.





The Breakfast of Chumpions

If you think I’ve been on a real roll and a tear lately, your eyes are not fooling your brain.

Because I have.  In most aspects of my life.

There’s a really simple explanation for it:

I recently swapped out my breakfast cereal for Kellogg’s Profundity Flakes.  A nutritious part of my snarky breakfast.

But I still almost always have a glass of Orenthal James.





The Week I Wish Had Not Been (But Was Anyway)

28 04 2017

I was thrice falsely accused of things this week:

(1) I was accused of being the secret identity behind a marginal YouTube personality; The accuser’s evidence was that our voices sound so much alike. In reality, this YouTuber’s voice is better than mine.

(2) I was accused of hoisting coffee from the company stockpile. It took a few days, but the colleague of mine who was actually doing it was caught red handed. I suppose the reason I was suspected is because I’m a bean head, and the stolen coffee is expensive and exotic.

(3) My landlord accused me of busting a lock to an apartment I don’t live in and at a time when I was on the road.

In better news, on the drive home from Kansas City, I stopped by the public library in Warrenton, because the public library district that serves Warren and Franklin Counties jointly is having a yuge bigly kick ass sale on books and what not, a buck for hardcovers and two for a buck for softs. I found some pretty good finds.

But, then? Tomorrow, the sky is going to open up, so no golf for Blogmeister tomorrow. If it’s going to rain as much as they say it will, then it might be a good idea for me to stay off the beaten paths, as many of them will become rivers. If it’s that bad, I just might have to figure out how long a cubit is.

If you have anything you want to accuse me of falsely, now is the time.
