Google Killed Folder Organization

I’m pretty much done with Google. I’ve had it with the bullshit. Lollipop on Android is the most fucking ugly back-assed operating system I’ve ever seen. I’d rather put windows 3.0 on my phone. They killed Reader, forced us into G+, constantly fuck with things that are working and working well, only to replace them with shittier uglier versions.

I follow many different people on Youtube. Emphasis on PEOPLE. Not companies. PEOPLE. People have names. Joe Blow may have videos on home improvement.  While John Blow has videos on watercolor painting. Bongwater69 might have videos on hiking. The point is that you can’t tell content by the name. That is why organizing them into subject folders was the only way to figure out who did what. Now, I just see a list of names. I can’t go to the folder named Photography to find all photography related videos. Retarded. That is the only word for it.

Maybe, there is something else they are coming out with to replace it, but as of this rant, no, there is nothing. Quite frankly, with their track record of bad ideas and failures, I’m not holding my breath that if it is replaced it will be any good. G+ was and is a joke. All the things that went along with it are also beyond useless.

I’m currently shopping Windows phones, as the only fix to the shit pie that is lollipop, is to root my S4 (if you even can do that anymore) regardless, I shouldn’t have too.  Plenty of other options out there Google and most are as good, if not exceptionally better.

Me and My Hemorrhoid

Me and my hemorrhoid go back close to forty-eight hours. I never caught his name, it was my first time, and I guess I was a little nervous. I know he is a he, because a woman couldn’t be this much of a bastard.

We’ve been intimate pretty much since we met. Me poking, and he always rubbing, always touching, just to let me know he’s there. Like an older brother sticking his finger a millimeter in front of your face and repeating, “I’m not touching you! I’m not touching you!”

But he is touching me. Like a fever sore ground into hot salty sand and compressed until it becomes glass. He must have been a fighter or a war hero in a past life.

As with most relationships, it has started out hot and heavy, and I wonder how long we can keep this up. He is quite jealous and territorial. I can only hope it ends amicably.

Concept Artist – Sparth, New book Structura 3

Very cool book by Concept artist Sparth. He is the Art Director for HALO.  Not a huge fan of concept art in general, but because of it’s close relation to 3D visualization (the day job) I try to at least keep an eye on what is going on in that field. Also, since I finally got a PS4 and started playing Destiny, I’m warming up to more Sci-Fi art.

Check out the book here: Structura 3

Unreal Engine 4 is now FREE

You probably can’t see it, but I have a huge boner right now. You will too if you’re into this sort of thing. Unreal Engine 4 is now free to use. Still have to pay the man once you produce something, but this is great for those of us that want to tinker. If you don’t know what UE4 is that’s okay…

Unreal Engine 4 is a complete suite of game development tools made by game developers, for game developers. From 2D mobile games to console blockbusters and VR, Unreal Engine 4 gives you everything you need to start, ship, grow and stand out from the crowd. -UE4 Website

Baseball Players: Highly skilled Athletes…

Spring Training has just begun and so have the injuries. In no particular order, here are some of asinine injuries that have befallen these highly athletic specimens.

 

  • Blue Jay’s outfielder – Michael Sounders – stepped on a sprinkler head while taking fly-balls.
  • Phillies infielder – Chase Utley – sprained ankle stepping on a ground ball while taking ground ball practice.
  • Tampa Bay Rays reliever – Ronald Belisario – fractured shoulder getting out of a pool.
  • Arizona Diamond Backs Pitcher – Chris Sale – broken foot unloading his truck.
  • Pirates outfielder – Cory Hart – cut foot on a hot tub.

Now these are the stories the players have “told” their respective teams. Often times these early injuries are not really the whole story. One can only imagine how retarded the truth must be if these are the best explanations these players are selling.

Baseball is Back!

It’s been a long shitty winter. No sign of the weather letting up, but at least tomorrow marks the start of Spring Training games. Finally, it seems there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I always look forward to baseball season, but more so after particularly bad winters.

The calming sound of the announcers make the work day seem shorter, at least during the day games of the Spring. Getting out and seeing the sun, still very much in the sky, doesn’t hurt either.
