David Bowie Was More Well-Read Than I

Below is a list of David Bowie's 100 favorite books from the current exhibit on his life in canada.  I highlighted the ones that I've also read, whether they are in my list of 100 favorites or not (although several are).

A couple things struck me about this list.  First, Bowie was really fucking well-read.  My respect for him grew.  Also, most of his reading list focus on the American experience, even though most of his life was in England.  If I were to make a similar list, it would probably include more British writers than his.  I'm surprised he picked As I Lay Dying for his Faulkner entry, my choice usually is Absalom,Absalom!  Although he seems to prefer southern novelists, his choice of books makes me wonder what he thought of us.  After reading Black Boy, he must have hated us, after reading Confederacy of Dunces, he must have pitied us.  Combined with Sweet Soul Music, and I'm coming to see Bowie had more of an interest in our peculiar institution than I ever knew.
Only a few of these books are about music or musicians.  I expected there would be more.  He clearly has a developed interest in cultural psychology, but none for cultural mythology (religion) and none at all for science fiction.

Despite his interest in acting, there are no plays and only one poem.  Not that many of his choices are novels.  I'm surprised two of his choices are collections of comics.  Although Bowie himself was an icon of the 60's and 70's, the only book really about that era is the Hitchens book on Kissinger.  He seems to have more of an interest in the 50's when he would have been a boy.

So, Just How Nuts Is Harrison??

Unable to get along with fucking anybody, and already having a pronounced tendency toward blackmail, Harrison recorded Fearlezz vaping on tinychat and sent it to her police insisting they arrest her for smoking marijuana. 

I've never known a grown man with such a penchant for blackmail.

Saving Private Ryan - Omaha Beach Scene (HDR - 4K - 5.1)

Why Everybody Hates CheChe143 Gothly

She's a stupid redneck

She's loud as fuck without being even a little interesting

She "online dated one of my friends without telling him she was married

When I confronted her with "she should have told him she was married" she invented this stupid clownhouse story

Did I mention she cheats on her husband?

She told everyone she "ran" Waterhead for years, when really it was her friend Bryton

She gets Dr34m Goodfellow to pay people so she can get into sims

She Tried to Dox Aubrey twice

She Threatened to spread demi's nudes

She doxed Nacho's entire family, including his mother

She flirts with weak losers like YzY so he'll take her side against Aubrey and her friends

Did I mention she uses secondlife to cheat on her husband?

She drives her child to school heavily under the influence

She attacks Dreams for being an addict and making bad choices when she's a MUCH WORSE addict who makes even worse choices.  At least Dreams doesn't use the internet to cheat on her husband

Cheche is super jealous of women who have more education, prettier, with more money, better men, a gorgeous home, a nice car that costs more than her entire net worth, a successful life, Has been through more passports than CheChe, since she was 3 months old, Traveled the world from a good home and doesn't have family members sitting in jail, and believes they somehow wants to BE her.

She voted for Trump for entirely racial reasons, without understand a single plank in his platform.

The Destruction of Britbong Part Seventy-two

So Britbong got banned from youtube again.  A couple of weeks ago I told him that I noticed he'd started to fuck with other streamers again, and if he didn't cut it out he'd soon lose his channel like he did all those other times.

Guess I was right.

Needlessly attacking other streamers seems to be the one thing both Youtube and Twitch take seriously.  You'd think after losing everything he worked to build six times for the same reason, Britbong would have figured that out by now.

  • Uses conspiracy theories like others use religion
  • Watches porn every day
  • Loves anime
  • Favors video games to sports
  • Suffers painful social anxiety

  • Can name more streamers than singers

The internet was supposed to help us, to expand our minds.  Has it really?

Montezuma is a couple of months YOUNGER than MrNoob

Aubrey cannot be a catfish if she never used fake photos like Harrison used to before Lucas Teatime found his real photos

The Clown house was created for and only existed during a party,  to which CheChe143 Gothly was not invited by popular demand

Secondlife Trolling videos were invented by Charlie Winsmore, all others followed his lead

JMAA Army Raids Really Britbong (MrBtfo) Raids

Britbong (MrBtfo) was originally banned from Twitch, and Hitbox and Youtube for "raiding"

His idea of raiding is to take as many of his adolescent, incel followers as he can and harass another streamer while they're streaming.  You can see why Twitch and Youtube took a dim view of this. 

Now that he's trying to re-create himself as MrBtfo (and cut down on the number of bans he gets) Britbong (MrBtfo) doesn't do raids anymore.   Yeah right!  He doesn't do then while he's streaming but he still very much conducts raids with his adolescent, incel followers.

JMAA used to be one of his most devoted followers.  We tried to warn him that Britbong (MrBtfo) almost always turns on his friends and followers, but JMAA didn't believe it.  He believes it now, as as Britbong (MrBtfo) is doing everything he can to destroy JMAA including harassing his workplace (sort of like what he did to Upraksi).

Their plan is to pretend to be JMAA followers and conduct these "raids" on whatever streamers they don't like, then report the real JMAA so that he gets blacklisted everywhere like Britbong (MrBtfo) is.

It's hard to tell if Britbong's efforts are actually having any effect.  JMAA's content has the sort of wild and loose style Britbong wishes he could get away with, so while he is catching some bans, most have been for things he actually did, not for Britbong's False Flag attacks.

Comments on Harrison's Arrest Report

The night Harrison's arrest appeared in his local newspaper, people from Secondlife posted the following comments:
Originally there were dozens and dozens more comments as nearly everyone from all the hubs got involved, but the next day the people who ran this small-town newspaper website saw they had more traffic than ever before and deleted most of the comments.  What you see below was considered lost for many years, until one enterprising soul admitted she saved some of it.

Britbong (MrBtfo) Begs Google For Help When He Can't Help Himself

Responding to recent changes in UK law, Google now allows UK citizens to petition for removal of websites from their search results, made in the UK, if they consider them slanderous.   Embarrassed by the content on these sites, Britbong (who is banned from Google's Youtube) is begging Google to hide the sites listed.  I'm not sure how effective it is, he's done this to my site but I still get about half my visitors from the UK.

Considering his history it's actually hilarious to see how of a snitch MrBtfo has become

Why Rocky (1976) is One Of The Greatest Movies Ever Made

The many sequels to the original Rocky pretty much ruined its reputation.  People forget the original film earned an amazing 10 Oscar nominations.  Try and forget what came after and consider the amazing achievement 1976's Rocky was.

Rocky, a 30 year old ex-boxer turned enforcer for a local loan shark, has no family, no friends, but he loves a girl named Adrian, locally believed to be retarded because she's so shy.

When his scheduled opponent breaks his hand, World Heavyweight Chamption Apollo Creed, decides to take on a nobody fighter as a novelty rather than canceling the planed match.

In this scene, Rocky accepted the offer to fight Apollo Creed, but he has no money, no representation, no training and no friends.  The only person in the world who believes in him is Adrianna (Adrien)  Unsure of himself and way out of shape, Rocky begins to train.  The music and the editing (both nominated for an oscar) emphasize his mood

Rocky's situation is desperate.  He knows there's no way he can face Creed in the ring the way he is.  The last time spoke to Micky (Burgess Meridith-nominated for an oscar) Micky called him a bum and a failure.  He's understandably surprised when Mickey shows up at his door.  This scene alone demonstrates why both Stalone and Meredith earned Best Actor Oscar nominations.  Again, Bill Conti's musical replaces pages of dialogue with a few simple notes.

Mickey saw something in Rocky and Rocky saw something in Mickey.  With mickey in his corner and  Adrian in his heart, Rocky's training changes.  This became one of the most famous sequences in movie history for its editing (which won Richard Halsey an oscar) While Avildsen and Halsey constructed the sequence they kept calling composer Conti, asking him to make his score a few seconds longer.  Released as a single titled "Gonna Fly Now" (which became a Top 40 hit), The finished score for this scene became Conti's most famous work.

The City of Philadelphia so loved this sequence, that they would keep the statue of Rocky (Made as a prop for for Rocky III and re-cast in actual bronze) beside the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where thousands of tourists each year take selfies.

Why I Hate The NRA

When I was a kid, I took the NRA gun safety course to help prepare for my BSA Marksmanship Badge (Now the Rifle Shooting Badge).

At the time, the NRA and the BSA had very similar goals and objectives.  Even though we laughed that the NRA was originally founded to teach Yankees to shoot straight (a true fact, look it up) the NRA was the place to go to learn gun safety, gun maintenance and good marksmanship. 

An NRA member (who I later found out was a close, close friend of my favorite cousin) gladly met me at the troop hut and ran me through the NRA Gun Safety Course as he had done for scores of scouts before me. 

Even though the slow take-over of the organization by Neo-Con political forces had begun 10 years earlier, the NRA, at the time, was still mainly a sporting organization and I was proudly a member, even though a kid.

A man named Wayne LaPierre joined the NRA in 1977, and slowly but very aggressively turned the NRA into a purely political organization.

Not long ago, I called both the Mississippi and the Louisiana NRA to see about setting up the gun safety course for my imaginary son working for his Rifle Shooting Badge, only to be told "we haven't done that in 20 years".

I'm a big believer in gun rights, but I'm also pretty adamant that anyone who has a gun know what the hell they're doing.  Next to an automobile, guns are the most dangerous thing most of us will ever use or touch.  We go through pretty rigorous testing to earn the right too use an automobile.  In some states you're even required by law to carry automotive insurance if you intend to drive, but to purchase and own ANY legal firearm, all you have to do is prove you're not a felon or be on a watch list as a nut-job. 

I'm told that currently Wayne LaPierre is under investigation for miss-use of NRA funds (including hundreds of thousands of dollars he charged the organization for his personal wardrobe) with Oliver North (of all people) leading the charge.

We desperately need an organization like the NRA was when I was a kid.  We don't need an NRA who funnels hundreds of millions of dollars into Neo-Con candidates and does NOTHING to promote safe and responsible gun ownership.  I hope they find Wayne LaPierre guilty and he goes to jail.  I hope the NRA, teetering on the brink of financial ruin, has to file bankruptcy and break up.

Maybe then we can have a reasonable (and much needed) national conversation about reasonable gun rights and a mechanism to teach a nation of gun-owners about gun safety.

What Really Happened To Dream's Dog?

By now, most of you have heard all sorts of stories about how Dreams' dog died.   Let me tell you what really happened.

Tens of thousands of years ago, some enterprising souls, somewhere in what we now call Russia, figured out a way to make wolves leave their own kind and take up with humans.

While an impressive accomplishment, over the years since we've used selective breeding to alter the physiognomy of the wolves to suit our purposes.  Some of the resulting puppies severely altered the wolves original body.

While most dog breeds are pretty healthy and amazing companions, toy dog breeds like Dreams' Pomeranian were created to be "cute" not "healthy".  Their skulls are flattened which gives them intense breathing problems, their bodies are shrunk to the point where their bones can be frail as paper as they age and their digestive systems are squashed to the point where they can't survive on a normal dog diet.  Despite their dwarf size and health, they retain the brain of a wolf which leads to pronounced emotional issues.

Nobody ever told Dreams toy breeds are inherently unhealthy and psychotic and no amount of effort and love and time put into keeping it healthy will make it stable.  Add to that, a veterinarian of questionable skill and ethics and Dreams was running head-long into a tragedy.

Take a lesson from what happened to Dreams.  Toy dog breeds border on cruelty.  Dogs were never meant to be that size or shape and even if you really do your best, there's a pretty good chance you'll end up in the same sad situation Dreams did.

Britbong (MrBtfo) Returns To Raiding?

In a recent tweet, Britbong (MrBtfo) apologizes to any streamers who have suffered a MrBtfo Raid, claiming he hasn't done any raids in the past three years and wasn't behind it.

First off, that's a blatant lie.  Britbong hasn't done any raids since he started his new MrBtfo Channel, but he was streaming them live not six months before.  In an effort to distance himself from his past behavior (to prevent getting banned again) Britbong (MrBtfo) told a lot of lies, this is just one more.

Britbong (MrBtfo) claims someone else is pretending to be him, conducting these new raids.  While possible, from what I'm hearing from their victims, these raids are fairly large, involving at least seven to ten people. I find it really hard to believe there would be an organized effort to discredit Britbong and neither myself or anyone I know would be invited or involved.

Raids were always one of the most popular parts of Britbong's streams.  That's why he did it so often, and kept returning to it after the Twitch ban for raiding.  I know for a fact that several long-time Britbong followers have been asking him to return to raiding, even if not on stream, for over a year now.

I also know for a fact that there is a separate Britbong discord, created specifically to organize activities that might sully his reputation, which would be a perfect place to organize these new raids.

At least three former Britbong supporters claim to have known about these new raids before being ejected from the group.  One claims to have participated in them before his ousting.

MrBtfo (Britbong)'s tweet about these new raids is highly suspicious as no one has come forward publicly to say they were a victim yet, so who is he responding to? Britbong is a creature of habit.  Raiding has been one of his favorite and most popular activities as long as I've known him.  It's the single reason he's banned from Twitch, Youtube and Hitbox.  He's also one of the most well known liars on the internet, so when  he says he wasn't involved in these new raids, there's a pretty good chance he was.

Ass you can see, JMAA and I discussed the idea and decided it wasn't worth the effort
I've known Britbong a long time, I know when he's lying, and he's lying.  Britbong loves raids, it helps him feel better when other streamers don't get banned like he does.

The Disposition of CheChe's Nudes

Obviously announcing the release of CheChe's nudes was just a bit of bait.  I'm sorry if you weren't smart enough to figure that out.  Like the sign says above, we don't do nudes here.

I must say though, as bait goes, it was wildly successful.  Not including Nacho CheChe threatened three different men with lawsuits if her nudes appeared here. 

One guy I hadn't met before and only contacted me to find out why CheChe was threatening him.  He'd only known her for two years and told me that he quit talking to her after hearing her husband and child in the background and no longer felt comfortable "doing things" with an obviously married woman.

We baited CheChe in lots of other ways to demonstrate to her how easy it would be for us to be as horrible as she.  Clearly Doxing Nacho's mom was pretty disgusting on CheChe's part, but that doesn't mean we'll stoop to her level, even though we could.

In the end, CheChe decided to dox Nacho's mom and make false reports on Aubrey purely out of jealousy.  Nacho and Poppin and Aubrey were having a lot of fun together and excluding CheChe and that drove her mad, so she got her friend to help her try and get revenge by doxing his family

World's Greatest Youtuber JMAA Joins New Team

after years of struggle, World's Greatest Youtuber, JMAA decided to become one of the good guys.

Horse Face Nude Video Coming Soon

Appearing on the campaign stage, get your dollar bills ready gentlemen, CheChe143 Gothly Fully Nude!

Surprisingly, after CheChe doxed Nacho's mom and dad because he prefers to play games with Aubrey than to do *anything* with Cheche, several of her other exes came through with some really incriminating stuff on her.  The Moral of the story is don't Dox Nacho's mom and don't tell lies about Aubrey.

Just to Set The Record Straight MrBTFO

Just to set the record straight Britbong

1) Britbong (MrBtfo) only started streaming Secondlife and GTA RP AFTER Charlie Winsmore had such remarkable success with it. 

2) Like Pyrocynical, VidoegameDunkey, ColossalIsCrazy and many others, Faceless and Sniping Soup were friends of and very friendly to Britbong (MrBtfo) only to have him turn on them after not picking up on his (not too) subtle hints that he wanted to collaborate or somehow talking youtube into reversing his (well deserved) ban.

Britbong (MrBtfo) has since taken down the tweet.  This was the second most reasonable thing he could have done since it's too late for the most reasonable thing which would be not to have made the damn thing in the first place.

I'm sure the damage is done though.  Once you drive a wedge into a friendship like this it tends to stay, particularly if it wasn't deserved  in the first place.

What I Hate about NCIS: New Orleans

The Accents:  Scott Bakula does a pretty good southern gentleman accent, it's not at all specific to New Orleans.  That's excusable though because a lot of educated southerners do lose the rationality in their voices, there should be someone on the series who sounds like they specifically come from New Orleans.  Somebody on the show should be a "yat".  It also really bothers me that nearly every black character in the show talks like a weatherman.  I realize portraying black characters can be dicey because it's a touchy subject, but none of these people sound like they've ever been to New Orleans.

Race:  While we're on the subject of black characters, where are they?   Sure they have CCH Pounder and the hacker in the wheelchair, but there should be a bunch more.  None of the plots or sub plots deal with issues of race either which isn't realistic.

Music:  One thing I appreciate about the show is they feature one or two genuine local NO performers in almost every episode, BUT the show's main theme "BOOM BOOM BOOM" is specific to Memphis not New Orleans.  If any piece of music could be said to represent Memphis or Delta Blues, Boom Boom Boom by John Lee Hooker is probably it. 

Katrina:  One thing the show gets right is the impact Katrina had on the city.  New Orleans may never fully recover from the storm.  They don't however address the many cultural changes the storm brought about, for instance: tens of thousands of Mexican workers immigrated to New Orleans after Katrina to fulfill the thousands of construction jobs that opened during the recover, and thousands of them decided they wanted to stay and became a significant part of the rich cultural heritage of New Orleans. 

Nobody is Religious:  I realize religion is a touchy subject for television, so they just ignore it, but that's not New Orleans.  In reality a rich tapestry of different religions are a integral part of the fabric of New Orleans and should be a part of these characters. 

Nobody Hunts or Fishes:  In reality, NCIS agents in New Orleans would spend more time with a line in the water or sitting in a duck blind.

The Writers Are From Los Angeles:  The literary heritage of New Orleans is one of the richest this country has to offer, but not a single writer on the show is from there.  To be fair, the writers they use have done considerable research into the city and the region, it's pretty clear they're not steeped in the city's heritage.

Britbong Vs JMAA


FEBRUARY 22, 2019

Credit: Killdeer

Sometimes, you don’t learn the dark side of someone you used to admire until you deeply learn from his personality and grow a critical mind out of his teachings. Many times a lot of people have told me “I do not take advice ever”, but a lot of times, some of these people don’t take their own advice at some extent.

You probably seen a shitwad of videos about “How to spot a sociopath” in listicle format that explain to you each and every trait of your typical sociopathic person. One of them is that they have such a superficial charm that you cannot figure he’s really such a neurotic behind the scenes of his mind. And it seems, that given the circumstances, I can now, since I cut ties with him, talk to you about one of those online sociopaths that, even then, have been giving out red flags since ages ago.

We’re talking about the man known as Dominic Vanner, AKA Britbong AKA MrBTFO.

I’ll start with the most recent stuff first.

As you may know, I’ve been disavowed by MrBTFO for “having grems in my Discord”, which by the way was a move on my part to branch off out of just being an extension of himself. Not only that, I decided to be straightforward with the guy, and in the nicest way possible, and most honest way possible, give him the best of advice I can give to him regarding my business and his business.

The guy, of course, didn’t take it so kindly and blocked me literally everywhere on social media, and banned me from his streams. Funnily enough, the guy was talking smack on his streams as if my whole paragraph of advice and good will was some sort of “Elliot Rodger Style Manifesto”, still treating me like dirt like he did since ages ago.

This is the same guy who didn’t even give a single solitary shit when I got banned on YouTube for the first time, when I was mass flagged by Deplorable (whom he made a moderator of his streams and Discord) and when anything else bad happened to me UNLESS I gave him donation money.

Granted I made my mistakes in the past, but I’d expect the man who most gives out advice to others to take his own advice and not be a hypersensitive pussbag.

Another one of the most recent kind of stuff that Dominic is blameful for is his recent endeavors against Godwinson, another youtuber who doesn’t easily suck it up for ecelebs (not even the Killstream faggots AFAIK). We’re talking about some youtuber who really know what this YouTube shit is all about, and it sounds like the kind of person I’d identify with at some point for being independent of “toesucking”.

Nonetheless, you guys gotta believe me that, before he actually deleted the messages out of damage control before I was able to screencap them or anything, he told me after I shown Godwinson’s Rewind 2018 video to him that he has flagged the video down for showing off a clip of MrBTFO getting yelled at by his mom (no joke).

So after I cut ties with the guy, I decided I could give out the scoop to Godwinson himself. To which, he replied in the YouTube comments confirming the situation:

So I decided I could ask for proof about this through Godwinson’s email of the YouTube Privacy Complaint message. I wasn’t disappointed.

It’s pretty ironic itself that MrBTFO is the one who complains about “stalkers flagging his videos and streams”, but whenever he is made fun of by someone with the superior IQ, he is free to flag someone. Sounds like a severe case of “thin skin” to me.

Also, you can possibly hear Godwinson’s take on this situation in a video he made, around the end part of the podcast:

Let’s neither forget that, when confronted about the subject on his stream, he lied saying he didn’t flag the video.

A QUICK EDIT OF THIS ARTICLE, there’s a mirror of the original Rewind video by GODWINSON, which is here:

Aside of that, I already said you can easily look up on guides on “how to spot sociopaths”, and it’s really funny, because if you see the main traits that sociopaths have, a lot of them at least match up with Britbong’s personality.

I have been hearing “banter” segments of his streams with him talking about how in his school days he had misconduct problems before adult age, and one of the traits of a sociopath is conduct problems before the age of 15.

But the biggest thing is his superficial charm and his egotistical bragging. His superficial charm in the sense that he makes himself appear like a good guy and a regular person, and you may know this also by the sociopathic shallow emotions he does on the stream webcam. He’s also an egotistical bragger in the sense that he constantly brags about “being an alpha male” or “looking gorgeous”, even as a joke, because joking about it just serves as an escape route to get away from looking like an actual sociopath, which, again, is a sociopathic move.

All I gotta say is, you gotta grow up, Britbong. I may still live with my parents, but I at least have a job and responsibilities and I’m not a complete NEET who’s been babysitted by his safe environment of a home. Just man up.

In the words of a famous engineer, “take it like a man, shorty”.

The Real Reason Why Britbongreturns Changed His Name To MrBtfo

In the chat of Keemstar's stream, Britbong demanded an apology or he will dox ColossalisCrazy
Keemstar ignores the threat and spells out all the ways he BTFO Britbong over and over for the last six months and how powerless Britbong is to do anything about it.  

The beating that followed this video was so brutal and so complete the Britbong began denying that he ever was Britbong and created the MRBTFO brand to distance himself from it.  

While back on Youtube (for the moment) Britbong (as MRBTFO) is so paranoid of kicking off another round of getting banned that he bans people who call him Britbong in chat and refuses to discuss politics during his "banter" hour for fear of earning a channel community standards strike.

Life At The Bottom: LC London Loves SLAquaman

The Greatest Victory of DJ Stefanos

Of all the dubious accolades earned by DJ Stefanos, the greatest stunt he pulled off so far was having grown people believing that somehow he's been hiding on Secondlife as a woman named Elise.

Apparently the theory started with Harrison Digfoot.  So far the only people who actually seem to believe it is Britbong, Harrison and Joe Liefstrum.  According to their story, Stefanos is in such terrible legal trouble that the only way he can use the internet is by pretending to be a woman...

you can't make this shit up.

The New Kings Of Secondlife Streaming

Streaming at the same time, both on youtube, The Bad Guys nearly double MrBtfo's viewers.

Something bad must have happened on Britbong (MrBTFO)'s stream tonight.  He ended it an hour early then logged in to scream about me somehow getting an "army of teenagers" to dislike his stream.  I don'pt know where he thinks I got an "army of teengers" or even how many dislikes he got but it really set him off.

Minkah Purple - Secondlife Living Relic

When Minkah Purple started hanging out in the info hubs a couple months ago, she challenged people to figure out who her original SL account was.  The results were predictable.  She got what she wished for and everyone was disappointed.

Minkah's most famous SL account was Xara Fiasco, a rainbow haired middle-aged woman, who likes music, but was never really very successful at it--except in Secondlife.

Xara is a  relic of a time when the world was still very optimistic about what Secondlife could do and would become.  The idea was that musicians and DJ's could make a lot of money performing in Secondlife.  There were tons of people who really thought they would spark a wave of internet busking that would take over the world.

To date, I've only heard of one person who ever supported themselves with music on Secondlife.  He began as a car salesman 13 years ago, playing Secondlife where he discovered he could be a DJ.  He started really devoting himself to it and became super popular (in secondlife terms) so eventually he quit his job selling cars and supported himself making music in Secondlife.  He attracted a lot of attention from journalists and industry writers who hailed him as the beginning of "something big!"

A year and a half later he was selling cars again and quit Secondlife for good.

Info Hubs Dying Even Faster Than Before

With voice off in Ungren and Nelsonia vacant, everybody has been meeting at Arapaima, but even it goes completely dead about 10:00 or 11:00 central time.  If Linden Lab is bringing new people in, they're doing a good job of keeping them away from the infohubs.

DanielFromSL Now DNSL

DanielfromSl has re-branded to DNSL.

Unlike some others who re-branded to try and keep from getting banned as much, Daniel changed his name because he doesn't want people to think of him just as a Secondlife troll, especially since he hasn't logged into SL for years.

Cigarette Filters Are Bullshit

In the 1960's when the US Surgeon General announced that cigarette smoking leads to many health diseases, including cancer, the tobacco industry responded by adding plastic based filters to their products to help deal with some of these health concerns (which they denied existed)

Like much of their marketing strategies, cigarette filters were bullshit.  They did nothing to make cigarettes less dangerous, they just made it easier for cigarette addicts to justify not quitting and maintain the fiction that cigarettes were somehow not poison.

Although cigarette smoking has reduced considerably since the 1960's, we now face a second health crisis steaming from cigarettes.  Cigarette filters now comprise the largest portion of non-bio-degradable plastic garbage in the world. In some situations, it could take centuries for cigarette filters to break down from its solid state.

While many of the plastic cigarette filters now polluting the world's oceans may be left over from the 1960's, Americans still contribute several tons of new cigarette filters to the world's pollution problem every day. 

There's a very simple solution to this.  Cigarette filters don't make cigarettes safer to consume.  If you simply can't quit smoking, go ahead and pick a filter-less brand.

Much of The Mexico Border Wall Already Built

One of the biggest points about Trump's (now infamous) border wall is that almost half of it already exists (mostly build and paid for by the states they're in) with Texas seemingly the big hold-out.

While there have been no horrific incidents involving these extant wall sections, there are literally scores of tunnels dug under them. 

So far, these (very expensive) wall sections haven't been terribly effective at resolving our many concerns about immigration from and through mexico.

Youtube's Broken System Locks Up Derrick's Channel

One of my favorite SL video makers, Derrick, had his channel disabled today from someone mass-reporting several of his videos.

The culprit seems to be someone he argued with in Discord and the whole affairs points out just how broken Youtube's system really is.

Some of these videos were over a year old.  One had already been hand-reviewed and reinstated.  There seems to be ways to trigger automated (non human) reviews of videos that almost always result in the video coming down.  The trick seems to be having more than one person filing the complaint

Human review seems to be the key to getting these things worked out.  The trusted flagger program once offered some help there, but youtube seems to be quietly retiring the program.  Getting in a decent network used to help in these situation, but with the mass demonetization of Youtube, most of these have gone out of business.

Derrick will continue working to get his channel back in good standing, but so far Youtube seems pretty clueless.

Lindens Know Us By Name

When Kopyboat got his napster Pelliot account suspended by Linden Lab, he wrote to ask why.  The responding linden addressed him as "Kopy" even though there was no information on the Napster Pelliot account to attach it to Kopy's original account.

What is Banter

By definition: banter is an exchange between two or more people. 

Ranting by yourself on youtube for an hour or more is just being lonely.

Help For MrBtfo

Last night, Britbong told me that Sam Hyde, DanielFromSL and some guy named Stiggs have all joined his discord to help build his new brand.  (I guess his new brand HELPIVEBEENBTFO hasn't been growing very quickly)

There may have been some alcohol involved because he kept saying he was talking to people in his discord, but when I checked his discord nobody was in any of the voice channels.

I'm not sure what the plan is.  Maybe Sam Hyde and DanielfromSL will make a bunch of tweets saying how great MrBTFO is without telling anybody that MrBTFO is really just Britbong trying not to get banned again. 

He's pretty serious about the re-brand.  Two of his former fans approached me recently to say that he not only banned them from Stream Chat But from Discord as well, simply because they called him "Britbong" and not "MRBtfo"

Voice Off At Ungren

In their never-ending battle against griefers and trolls, Linden Lab decided to turn voice off at Ungren, just like Ahern and Violet.

Ⓛℭ Jǒиesăliиi ΤăуℒǒŘ Ⓛσηdση (mademoisellecouture) Is An Idiot

In June, we convinced Elsie London this news report was about Aubrey... It's now January and she still believes it was actually AubreyXX

DO NOT Remind People that MRBTFO is just Britbongreturns In Disguise

Apparently calling MrBtfo Britbong during one of his streams can get you banned.

I can see why he'd want to distance himself from Britbongreturns, as Britbong was one of the few people to have ever been banned from Streamlabs.

** Reminder ** Strawberry cider is manufactured and marketed primarily for women and homosexuals.

Britbongreturns is MRBFTO's Deadname

Leslie's Friends Are Shit

My first thought when I saw Leslie's go-fund-me effort was whether or not I should personally do something to help her.  Despite her 12 year effort to destroy me, she's still a sick old lady sleeping in her car over Christmas because life is cruel and I had the means to help her.

After consulting with people I respect, both on and off the internet, I decided that it'd be best for me not to personally get involved, for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that Go-Fund-Me has a pretty horrible reputation.

I felt certain though, that her other friends would pick up the slack and someone would help Leslie.

I even made sure that they were aware of her situation by sending people like Ellen Frog, 007BJamesB, Harrison Digfoot, Michelita Cerao, MrKatie, and Talitha Larnia, the link to her story on Go-Fund-Me.  Since they were only too anxious to help her on Secondlife I felt sure they would help her in real-life.

Christmas came and went and no-one pledged even a single dime to Leslie's Go-Fund-me page.  They can't say they didn't know about it.   I made sure they knew about it, and yet I was the only one to even consider helping her.

Heartbroken, she's now taken her Go-Fund-Me page down.  Can you blame her?

I confronted Artemiss Luminos, Harrison Digfoot and Michelita Cerano about why they chose not to help Leslie in her time of dire need and they all said that they just didn't feel like it was their responsibility to do so.  Some friends huh?
