My SJW video now in easily digestible increments

It has come to my attention that people are having some troubles watching my recently made video.  Besides the copyright strikes that I mentioned earlier making it unavailable to anyone on Youtube, people are also uncomfortable with the video's length of 1 hour and 22 minutes.  Hey, the movie All Dogs Go To Heaven was about that long and I don't recall too many people complaining (except for some movie critics, some parents that had to take their kids to it, some online personalities pointing out its flaws, and from artists who actually worked on the movie).
But yes I can understand the disgruntlement.  It's much easier and more delightful to watch animated dogs have a grand adventure for approximately 82 minutes than it is to watch me prattle on about my opinions in a cold basement for that same amount of time.  So here's what I've done.  I've divided my video up into its 14 individual segments and embedded them below.  That way you can watch one or two or three (or however many you can muster) at a time.  Then if you're ever tired, you can go rest for a bit and then start again where you left off.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

"Why did I even make this video so long in the first place?", you ask.  I just had  a lot to say.

Also, as an FYI, this{these} video{s} was meant to promote both of my books, as it is with pretty much everything on my blog since about 2010.  So, here's yet another link to those books on Amazon: Jesus Needs Help and Censor Monkeys Have No Class.

Now on to the video(s).  Enjoy!  If you've seen it/them already, feel free to enjoy again.

Steve Bannon is NOT a nazi.....

The notion of Steve Bannon being the second coming of Goebbels and thus spinning America and then the world into some nazi-like dystopia is at best a paranoid hypothesis presented by irrational children.  However, I do agree that Mr. Bannon is a problem and it would be best if he were not in the powerful position that he is in at this time.  I will use this blog post to explain that.

Steve Bannon's ultimate goal can be seen in a movie he created called Torchbearer.  I have embedded the trailer for it below:

I think this trailer might have started the rumour of Steve's affiliation with nazis.  He used a lot of old stock footage of Hitler and third reich marches in it.  So, if one was to just quickly glance at it, they could easily jump to the conclusion that "OMG Steve Bannon supports nazis! Run for your bomb shelters everyone!!!"  But you have to actually pay attention to the full trailer (and possibly even the full movie) to really see the agenda Bannon wants to push.  His opinion is that all the strife in today's world is caused by atheists turning their backs on God thus angering him and setting the apocalypse in motion.  The old nazi footage was simply used to conflate atheism with nazi activities.

That would explain why fellow Breitbart employee Milo Yiannopoulos gave a speech saying that "Catholics were right about everything.

It also explains why he's wants Trump to reunite 'church' with 'state'.  Everyone's afraid of this administration making the world return to the 1950's when they should be more concerned with a return to the 950's.  That church and state reunion is a huge mistake for several reasons.

1. That kind of thinking is what made the Medieval or Dark Ages so dark.  By incorporating the most dominant religion (that being catholicism at the time) with the government many innocent people were slaughtered for not showing allegiance to that religion and intellectual enlightenment was pretty much forbidden.  Galileo famously was put to death under this system for the crime of scientific discovery.  Thankfully, historical figures like Martin Luther and Leonardo Da Vinci lead a Renaissance and helped free the world of this suppressive way of life.

2. The founding fathers of the United States made sure to keep church and state separate for a very good reason.  The reason the US came to be in the first place was because the Quakers were being religiously persecuted in England.  They set sail for a better life and found a whole new continent full of indigenous and non-judgemental people with which they could live in harmony. (Of course many settlers that came afterwards would disrupt this harmony but that's a whole other blog post).  The clause about 'Freedom of Religion' means that every citizen is free to practice whatever religion they so choose and be free from persecution for it.  That separation of church and state is there to insure that no one religion dominates enough to impose itself on any other religion in the country, and that includes atheism.  Really, if church and state are reunited, there's potential for Muslims to dominate and thus impose sharia law which is what Donald Trump is trying to prevent and what the Muslim version of Sarah Palin, one Linda Sarsour, is fighting to implement.

So really, the worst or most problematic thing you can say about Steve Bannon is that he's the Preacher Monkey among my Censor Monkeys.

His desire to return to 'traditional values' could make him the Victorian Monkey as well.

Also, yes I know at the very top I said that Steve Bannon is not a nazi.  However, by rising to the position of Trump's advisor, he is obviously trying to infiltrate the US government to put his opinions into practice thus making him very much the Nazi Monkey.

But I will end this post by also saying that Breitbart "News" is not a 'nazi recruiting website' nor is it a news site.  It's simply an opinion site meant to amuse and/or horrify some for the amusement of others.  They're just on the opposite end of the same propagandist horseshoe that Buzzfeed is on.

No need to panic, folks.  All we have to do is remind Steve Bannon (an the Antifa while we're at it) about the constitution, keep him in check and then sit back to enjoy the ride.

My SJW video on Dailymotion

So apparently a lot of people are having trouble seeing my video on Youtube.  That's because of two copyright strikes.  One was for a rather long clip from a Quantum Leap episode.  I fully accept that one.  I thought I did a clever enough editing job on it that it could fall under fair use but I was mistaken.  The other strike took be completely by surprise.  It was for a clip of Frank Zappa reading his speech at the PMRC hearings.  The group that claim they own that clip called it a "song" which I found baffling.  Below is a screen shot I took of that copyright notice I got.

Oh well.  Hopefully Dailymotion will be more forgiving.  Anyway I've embedded both parts of my video below.  Enjoy!

My video about the SJW topic

This is the video that has occupied my time for the passed several months.  Of course, if I didn't have a full time job and I didn't take a trip to the Philippines to get married last December, I would've finished this 2 or 3 months ago.  So, because it took longer than I anticipated, in the video above I talk about Donald Trump's presidency as a "possible future" rather than a very real present.  However, I do think the rest of it still holds up.  Let me know either way in the comment section below.

Oh, if there are any toes I haven't stepped on with the blistering satire all throughout my video, let me know and I'll try to get around to stepping on them next time.

On this day.....

....the day of Donald Trump officially being sworn in as America's 45th president, I use one of my media outlets (this blog) to present to the world.............

.....the zombie version of Frank Zappa.  "Is there a connection?" you the hypothetical blog post reader is asking yourself.  What similarities could a zombified Frank Zappa and a very much alive Donald Trump have?  There's not a huge connection, but there are a few degrees of separation which I hope to reveal soon.  I'm shooting for before the end of this month.

But in the mean time, enjoy one of Frank's many great songs.  This one is appropriately titled Zombie Woof.

My Philippines wedding

On December 11, 2016 I got married to the loveliest lady and my best friend of all time, Janet Alaan.

It was a fun ceremony that I wish the entire world could have been there to witness.  Since that would be impossible without petroleum jelly and a shoehorn, the next best thing would be for me to post some pictures here and give a brief overview on the event.  There are some similarities to the basic wedding format most people are used to but in the Philippine wedding some things are uniquely their own.

  It starts with the groom walking down the aisle first to take his place in front of the alter.

Then here comes the bride accompanied by her own father.

While the two of us are at the alter, the pastor says some stuff about marriage.

Then we sit down while the pastor says more stuff about marriage.

Then we stand up again while he says more stuff about marriage.  That's always fun.

The bride and groom are once again seated so that the family and the pastor can bestow blessings upon them both.

They further emphasize that blessing by throwing flowers at us.  There's some in my hair and on my sleeve in this picture.

Next, the witness sign their names on the marriage license.

Then the bride and groom add their much needed signatures to the license.

And finally, they are married!!!

Family photos are taken immediately afterwards of course.

There's a funny story about this picture.  The little boy you see there thought I was Captain America.  His aunt tried to correct him saying "No no! He's from Canada."  But that little boy wouldn't hear it.  To him I was Captain America.  Okay!

Then it's the bride and groom's first dance together.

We danced to this song by the way.

While we're dancing, members of the family come up to us and pin money to our clothes.  My wife has since gathered up that money and put it into a bank account.  That's very smart of her.

Next the bride and groom do some schtick with the wedding cake.  Before the ceremony I had no idea we were supposed to feed it to each other.  Needless to say, I messed this part up.  DOH!

Then we do this thing where we lock arms and drink a glass of wine while the bride's teenage cousin photobombs us.  It's a sacred tradition that goes back before Magellan even.

Then speeches are given.  The bride's father(pictured) and mother and aunt all gave their speeches.  Then the groom and the bride got our opportunity to speak as well.


And finally the entire ceremony ends with a hearty feast.

The main component of the meal is the lechen baboy or 'roast pig'.  In the Philippines, a celebration is not complete without it.

Yeah! Then there was this little asshole.  I and my bride to be were just relaxing in front of our hotel enjoying our little electronic devices when this turkey starts getting all up in our faces.  If he's the hotel's manager then he really sucks at his job.  But if he's just some random turkey then he has no business being there and needs to go someplace where he'll be appreciated (like in a big plate stuffed with loads of soggy bread.  I know I shouldn't encourage cyberbullying or dog piling in any way but I don't care.  Everybody go find this creature's social media accounts and make his life hell.  Do it now.

And that was my wedding in the Philippines.  I'm sure fun was had by all who could attend.  Even though my Canadian family was unable to attend, I'm glad that I can give them all a great Christmas present: a new daughter-in-law/sister-in-law/aunt as well as a new grand daughter/niece/cousin!

A Preview of Something to Come

The passed few months I've been pre-occupied.  I've been working on a Youtube video that I hoped would be done by now.  However it's been taking me much longer than I thought it would.  Having a full time job taking up most of my time doesn't help either.  Plus there is now an event that will cause a further delay in the completion of my project: pretty soon I'll be flying to the Philippines to marry this lovely lady.

I have dropped a few subtle hints about what that Youtube video will contain in recent blog posts, such as:





As well as this Facebook status that, as you can see, only my mom noticed.

Besides all of that, my upcoming video will also contain a bit of this:

This is what I think the video's thumbnail would look like.  If you find this attractive or not, let me know.

I'm hoping to have this video done before the year is over.  I'll of course inform anyone interested when it is up and ready for viewing.  See y'all then.
