Right now Steve Jobs would be rolling in his grave over Iphone 11 and new Ipad designs…

I didn’t watch the latest Apple Event of the new Apple products but I’ve seen pictures of them and heard about them here and there. I would have to agree with most people that the new design of Iphone 11 is just horrible. I’m not a big fan of the two camera lenses and the camera light next to it trying to make it look like a triangle or whatever. The thing looks like it came from a sci-fi movie or something.

I would think that Steve Jobs would not have approved with Tim Cook’s work with Apple lately. The Iphone 11 makes me wish that Steve Jobs was still alive ’cause if he was, he would have done anything he could to make that awful design not happen. If Steve was here still, that design wouldn’t have happened at all and if he saw it himself, I can see Steve freakin’ out about it knowing how he was in the past. Steve’s temper tantrum was no secret and if you showed him something he didn’t like, he would have no problem expressing his anger about it. That’s how he always was back when he was alive. He was like that ’cause it was his way of creating the best products.

Steve’s goal with Apple products was that he wanted to help people with “personal computing”…. Tim Cook just wants to do things differently. All Tim Cook has been doing with Apple products lately is that he’s been making them in different sizes, different designs and different colors. Tim Cook just wants to make them look “cool” and try to make them catch people’s eyes but Steve never did things that way. Steve was all about the “personal computing” experience if you get what I mean. I’m with everyone that I don’t think he would have liked the Iphone11 design.

I also don’t think Steve would have approved of the Apple Card and the Apple+ streaming service either. Steve was always about “personal computing” and not about entertainment.

I used to never be a fan of Apple products in the past but I’ve had a change of heart when I got the Ipad and then I got an Ipod. I don’t have an Iphone yet but I would like to get one at some point. If I ever did get an Iphone from Apple, it would be an older version… I don’t think I’ll get the newer ones.

I’m not a fan of Tim Cook of the way he’s doing things lately. I’m also due for a new Ipad and I plan on buying a new Ipad next year but I won’t get one with a ten inch screen. I’m gonna go for the Ipad Mini, I think. Steve wouldn’t have approved of an Ipad with a 10 inch screen either, he’d be screaming his head off about that too. Apple getting worse under Tim Cook. Not a fan of that guy at all. Man, why did Steve had to pass on too early?

Why I like owning a large library of music…

I’m not afraid to say that I have a pretty huge music collection. Over the years of my life, I’ve collected CD’s for a pretty long time. I never really bought albums on cassette or vinyl in the earlier days, though. I just started collecting vinyl… my vinyl collection isn’t that big… it’s a small one for now but I’ll try to grow it when I can. Even though there are no record stores anymore, I still happen to buy music albums on physical CD every now and then. Nowadays, I just buy albums from Itunes ’cause I can’t think of any other places to buy music since record stores are a dying industry.

I have a pretty big collection of digital albums. Admittedly, I bought a lot of albums from Itunes and I’m not ashamed of it. I’m not one of those that will steal albums by pirating them ’cause I’m not that kind of guy. I don’t mind spending my money on artists and supporting them that way. I like to do it the right way, ya know?

I like owning a large library of music ’cause it can get kind of boring listening to the same things over and over. I like to support different music and bands/artists. I don’t buy all music out there, I only buy the stuff that I love. If the music grabs me then I’ll buy the album, that’s how I do it.

A lot of people won’t buy an album if they don’t like a few songs on it. Ya see, I don’t do it that way. I’m not very picky with songs on records. When I listen to records, I listen to it from start to finish like the way they’re supposed to be listening to. People in this generation don’t listen to music like that anymore. Nowadays, they only select songs they like on an album, put them on their Ipods and put them on shuffle. Nowadays, people are only listening to hit singles you hear on the radio on shuffle and they don’t listen to songs on albums that aren’t hits… in other words, they don’t listen to obscure stuff. I’m not the one that will say, “I don’t like this song and don’t like that one”. I just listen to it. Don’t complain and just put it on and enjoy. That’s how music is supposed to be listened to.

Sure, there are music I don’t like out there and when there’s music I don’t like out there, I won’t buy their music at all… lets say for example… I’m not a fan of bands like Halestorm and Nickelback. I stopped liking bands like Green Day, Godsmack and Bush… even though their earlier stuff are really good, I just don’t like the newer stuff they’ve been making.

I only buy albums from artists that I love.

What I’ll also do is that a lot of times, I’ll blind buy albums bands and artists that I never heard before ’cause I heard about them through music magazines or the internet. If I don’t like the album, I’ll get rid of it and if I like it I’ll keep it.

I try to buy the entire discography of bands and artists that I love like Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers, Metallica, Dream Theater, David Bowie, Slipknot, Slayer, Oasis (yes, I love Oasis), Opeth, etc. Those are some of the bands that I’m trying to collect all of their albums of… every album. I’ll collect every album of a band and artist that are my favorite.

I’m just a really huge music lover. You want to see a real music lover, look no further.

People like to criticize me for buying so much music albums but I don’t give a shit. It’s who I am. Even though I play the guitar and sing myself, I just like listening to music too. I like supporting others music. It’s what I do and what I’m about. Can’t live without it.

Purchased some more music from the Itunes store this morning…

So this morning I purchased some albums from the Itunes store… today I picked up:

Tool: “Fear Inoculum”, “Lateralus” and “10,000 Days”

Born of Osiris: “The Simulation”

Dream Theater: “Awake”

Dire Straits: “Communique”

Peter Frampton: “All Blues”

Yep, I got the new Tool album like I said I was gonna get and got their other two albums that I needed too.

I’m a huge Dream Theater fan and trying to collect all their albums. Only got a few left to go .

Born Of Osiris was a band that I’ve read about in Guitar World magazine and reading about them intrigued me so I picked up their new album “The Simulation” out of curiosity.

I’m just getting into Peter Frampton music so I picked up his new album, “All Blues”. Guitar World magazine had an interview with Frampton with him talking about this new album.

Yeah, I still like to read Guitar World magazine and that magazine helped spark my interests in bands and artists I’ve never heard before. Guitar World magazine got me interested in Dream Theater years ago ’cause they are always interviewing John Petrucci who is one of my favorite guitarists. Dream Theater is one of my favorite bands. I’m always listening to their albums. Been a fan of them for years. Never got to see Dream Theater live in concert but hopefully one day I get to.

Video: Criticizing women is not allowed…

I usually don’t post videos like this but I feel that this one is totally worth it. All you male readers, you should really check out this guy’s channel if you want to learn more about women ’cause this guy has good stuff on his channel. I’m addicted to his channel ’cause he has good content about women and the dating scene.

This guy is so correct that you can’t criticize women anymore in this day and age. If you do, you’ll get called a misogynist, a woman hater and you’ll get crucified for it. No matter what you say or even if the criticism is not even all that bad, you will get crucified no matter what. I know the feeling ’cause I’ve been there. I remember I used to criticize women on my blog for how they treat men in the dating scene and all that stuff and I got crucified for that a little bit. The reason we can’t criticize women anymore is ’cause of the feminist movement that’s been going on lately and also because of liberalism. The feminist movement and liberalism destroyed everything about being a man. It’s just sad and very scary to see all this.

Not only that women crucify men for criticizing women, there are even some men that do it too. Whenever other men see a guy criticizing women, they’ll usually try to play hero and defend women just to make women feel better.

I don’t hate women at all and I’ve been unfairly accused of that over the years of my life. We should have every right to be real about them, ya know? Not all women out there are goddesses and princesses. We should have every right to call out their bad behaviors, their attitudes and all that stuff. When you do, you better be ready for a backlash.

We can no longer talk about how horrible some women are in the dating scene. It’s just bullshit and unfair thanks to feminism that destroyed everything about being a man.

I’m still single for a pretty good reason ’cause some women out there can be evil. Not all of them but some. When it comes to dating and relationships, I’m only being careful with myself. I want a “good girl” in my life, ya know? Someone who will stay loyal and someone who actually cares. I’m looking for the love of my life. I’m not gonna be one of those men who has on and off relationships with the same woman. I’m not gonna be one those men who has different kids with different mothers like what seems to be going on nowadays. I’m not gonna be one of those who’ll get destroyed by women. I’m not gonna be one of those guys who’ll get used for sex, money and all that stuff.

This is a great video and should be watched by all men out there. You should check out this guy’s other Red Pill videos too ’cause it’s good stuff. I learn more about women ’cause of this guy.

Back home from my week vacation at Cape Cod… now back to reality…

Hey y’all, I’m back.

If you’re wondering where I’ve been for a whole week if anyone actually cares that is, I’ve been gone on vacation to Cape Cod. Just a little vacation with the family. I definitely had to go so I can get away from everything for a little while and that includes weightlifting and guitar playing. It’s good to get away from all that for a week. It was a great time with the family and all.

What did I do? Well, I did some sight seeing, went to the beach some, ate some sea food and did some shopping.

For shopping, I came home with some books ’cause there are always used local bookstores around Cape Cod, picked up a couple of music CD’s since there was an actual record store in Hyannis and picked up a couple of movies on BluRay.

What music CD’s and movies did I get on BluRay? For CD’s, I picked up the new Slipknot album “We Are Not Your Kind” and a couple of albums by Hall and Oates: “Change of Season” and “OOoooh Yeah”. I’m gonna start listening to Hall & Oates albums ’cause I’m really digging their stuff. As for movies on BluRay I picked up the new “Pet Sematary” remake and a horror film called “Mandy” with Nicolas Cage in the leading role.

I also went to the movie theaters at the Cape Cod mall and saw the new Tarantino film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” which was fucking awesome. Tarantino did it again and it’s another winner. I’ll have a full detailed review of that film in another post.

It was a good week for me. Now back to reality. Gonna get back to my 4 day a week routine at the gym this week starting with chest day tomorrow.

I love going on vacation and travelling once a year. It is a really good escape from reality and a good way to relax. Now back to posting on the blog ’cause I still have some loyal readers even though my blog isn’t popular anymore like it used to be. That’s okay. I only blog for myself anyways. Maybe I’ll have a rant on that in another post.

How to deal with online trolls and cyber bullying nowadays…

Hope I’m not the only one noticing that I believe that online trolls and cyber bullying online has become quite a problem nowadays and it’s getting a lot worse too. It’s like when you’re in a discussion or debate online like in social media, blogs, message boards, etc… and then suddenly you get personally attacked by someone out of the blue. You join in on the discussion or if you start a discussion and suddenly you get people saying mean things to you for no reason.

I’ve had this problem for a long ass time myself and I still go through it. Yep, you can betcha I still get trolls and cyberbullies attacking me even to this day. Some would think it’s your fault and you brought it upon yourself that you get these haters & cyberbullies but it’s not you at all. It’s just that a lot of people out there are nothing but assholes, ya know? When will people understand that people are just mean to you for no reason at all?

Why are some trolls mean to you for no reason? Why do you get all these nasty attacks? It’s simply because they are just like a bully in high school. They do it hoping to get a rise out of you. They want to try and get you upset just to amuse themselves. They have nothing better to do. They just think it’s funny and entertaining by picking on someone. Period. End of story. I’m also noticing that most of these trolls and cyberbullies are not really in happy in their lives and that’s probably another reason they do it.

It seems to me that you get attacked randomly just because you say things that people disagree with or if you say something wrong. They also do it ’cause they don’t like your views in politics, don’t like your taste in music or have a different opinion than them.

You just want to get into a fun and positive discussion but no matter how positive you are, you get attacked by some troll. Maybe that’s another reason they do it is ’cause they know how positive you are and they can’t stand it. It’s a proven fact that negative people can’t stand positive and happy people. It makes them crazy. When they see happy and positive people, they do all they can to bring them down to their level.

When I deal with trolls, I just ignore them completely nowadays. That’s how I’ve been dealing with them. If they say or do something about me that goes way out of line then I’ll do all I can to report them and try to get them banned but most of the time I just ignore them. If I feel the need to debate with them then I’ll just stick with my views and opinions and never back down. Stick to my guns no matter what they say ’cause they hate that.

Admittedly maybe some of the things I say is why I get haters and cyberbullies but everyone makes mistakes and we’re all human. Most of this are not yours or my fault.

Anyhow, when you’re getting attacked by people… most people do it anonymously anyways so don’t worry about it. People do it anonymously ’cause they don’t want you to find out who they really are just to save their own reputation and stuff. Many of them are cowards ’cause they do it anonymously.

Cyberbullying is a problem and it’s getting worse too. It used to bother me and upset me but not anymore. People just don’t understand that cyberbullies just want to make me look bad as much as possible most of the time. They are desperate. If you hear any nasty things about me said out there, don’t believe ’em ’cause most of it is bullshit.

I’m just a normal guy enjoying life, staying positive and am pretty happy. That’s all I am really. All I want to do is pretty much play my guitar and workout in the gym. I don’t care about the haters anymore. Life is really great.

Hope you all had a great and safe 4th of July yesterday…

I was meaning to post yesterday but was busy doing other things for July 4th. Hope you all had a great and safe July 4th yesterday.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, there’s going to be a lot of American leftist haters but you just gotta to ignore them and keep loving America ’cause they hate that. I’ll never stop loving America no matter what anyone says or thinks.

Ya know, it’s funny that when I show my support for Trump and help defend him, people always accuse me of going “political”. Um, excuse me… there is nothing political about loving your country and putting your country first! Lefties are the ones who get political with their bullshit.

Yeah, lefties are getting worse and they’re getting even more aggressive but ignore them and keep supporting Trump. I did watch some of the Trump July 4th party on TV… only watched some of the replay last night. I spent most of the day yesterday spending time with family mostly. Plus, I went to the gym early in the morning on July 4th for back day and did some heavy deadlifting so I wasn’t bored.

It was a great July 4th for me and hope you all had a good one too.
