Impressions of Edits on TikTok, the Force Notwithstanding

IT is managing the utilization of PCs and broadcast communications to recover and store and transmit data.  Tonight my mom showed off to me that the National Post contained a spread about TikTok, the online network that is becoming omnipresent. I haven’t been on there long and I am appreciating getting to know it.

    It seems to me now that users have loved TikTok for editing videos, memes, with measures of adoration.  I have a suspicion of the young that they take for granted, often enough, anyway, the same tools with which they have been shown how to use and for who it is second nature.  That stuff is noteworthy and I am liberal about it.

    On YouTube, The Quartering is a built-up channel that finds news media about gaming.  It was with a lot of satisfaction, the other day, that The Quartering presented, with his usual aplomb, the news that PewDiePie commenced the decision to end his channel, subscribed to by ten million users.  Pretty astounding.

    Over ten years, PewDiePie became simply a significant player. I am certain PewDiePie endeavoured to find the right pace while displaying a level of beauty that elegantly flaunted insight.  He liked to emphasize some of the best of meme culture on the Internet.

    Nowadays, on TikTok, young people are using Lego to indicate “kid,” or, “Trekkie,” but most likely, “kid,” in the phenomenon.  For me, it’s a good indicator to move off, in a lot of cases, or rather not to click “like,” because of the Lego picture the TikTokker is showing off with.  I get disappointed by the weight Star Wars has.

    While extremely strong on YouTube, I don’t see as many good edits of the sequel trilogy of Star Wars compared to other popular material.  On TikTok, I may be looking away so often that I am not seeing the best edits, but I don’t understand metrics on TikTok, other than that there are likes on relevant videos.  I think it is an enormous co-mingling of the best and the brightest.

    I see huge amounts of cooperative TikTok and I see happiness and fulfilled videographers posting their two cents. I see negative sources on the Internet, but I try to maintain an unbiased perspective, as opposed to getting radicalized, as happens some of the time, about issues around which Internet clients typically assemble.

    Don’t disregard taking a look, on the off chance that you are difficult to please.  You could find yourself awed.  Besides, you’re free here to like, remark and additionally follow 🙂  I guess I prefer words, of a nature that a computer keyboard does indeed capitulate, but there is a lot of creativity on social media.

I started telephone sales work in the 2000s, but after the economy crashed, I started spinning my wheels. My family got involved when my dad, who during his career with the municipality managed a cemetery for many years, was able to swing a deal when he learned of a little cemetery that required better operations, in his opinion.

Taking Steps to Infuse Life With The Ingredient of Maturity

Toward the end of the year 2004, when I was twenty-seven, and sort of in the routine of a day-to-day lifestyle that worked for me, I happened to find myself listening to a public speaker who was talking about someone I took to be the famous philosopher of relationships, writer John Gray. The man proposing Gray’s books appeared certain about his suggestion.

That year, a lady with who I was likely getting a charge out of a sorry excuse for a tease, had quite recently given me Gray’s blockbuster, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. If you’re sensitive, you’ll have experienced coincidences of that same sum and substance. I chose to peruse Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, and I enjoyed it enough to get intrigued to discover what else Gray had.

At our library, I found Gray’s first book, What You Feel, You Can Heal. I saw John Gray wrote about surviving homelessness when he was in the springtime of life. He talked with individuals he met en route, asking himself what was genuinely upsetting these individuals. I know everyone has a hard road to walk, but I understand Gray thought he might be able to light the way for those struggling.

Gray thought of life experiences that he felt are universally true. He wrote in What You Feel, You Can Heal that when people reach their mid-thirties, it is time for them to get down to raising a dependent, whether an animal or a person. And come the age of 42, individuals are ready to experience what it’s like to be part of a community, people together more than the sum of their parts.

I was reading my favourite blog last night, the title Beauty Beyond Bones, and I saw she wrote she was just so tired of men who wouldn’t grow up. It didn’t sound like she was having the most splendid time at the moment. I am grateful to the Beauty Beyond Bones blog for its inspiration.

As she is confident in saying, God is good. Beauty Beyond Bones can be found here: https://beautybeyondbones.com/

She is also a Patreon creator. Look here: https://beautybeyondbones.com/support-bbb-on-patreon/

She only asks for a couple of dollars a month, and she draws on the resources she finds, for the purpose of ministry. She deserves the shout-out.

Far fewer than her, I have two hundred and fifty subscribers, and I don’t know if anyone among those will be available to offer her additional support, but I like reading her blog on Monday and Thursday evenings. She also does a Wednesday evening post, where she shares recipes, but I’m not such a talented kitchen hand.

Incongruously, I’ve got an interest in Star Wars. I like cinema, I think Star Wars is absorbing, but it crossed my mind that it might not be the kind of priority that’s too impressive for someone of my level.

I’ve written in my blog a bit about Disney, and about Star Wars, taking inspiration from others who find threads of that kind usable. and I’ve devoted time to experiencing Lucasfilm and their “Star Wars.” Maybe I should have slowed down how many times I turned the focus of my blog back to Star Wars, but, on the whole, I don’t think it changed the overall definition of the blog I’ve done. I enjoyed most aspects of the task–my dear mother reading my thoughts on the Star Wars movies, told me I must be an expert!

On the subject of Beauty Beyond Bones, last night that blog cast back what it’s like going into the 2020s. The author’s a beautiful young lady and I understand why a lot of men might not interest her. Her blog has forty-five thousand subscribers, and of course, she doesn’t need to be concerned unduly with undeserving men.

I like reading her because she’s Catholic, and she lives in the Big Apple, and she has a fantastic amount of charm with which to counter other bloggers who are interested in the conversation. But removing blogs from the equation, I thought of providence, you might say, and I wondered if there was a method I could use to satisfy that need for a community.

Maybe I should go back to reading something that addresses the matter, probably not John Gray any longer, but something that is geared to helping grown-ups get better. I don’t have a straight-up answer to the question, but even starting to reflect on this reminds me that I could ask something about it on Quora, for example, and see if I have the good fortune to attract a sensible response. I would like to change, in light of the number of years I’m racking up, but I do need a strategy to get there (somewhere better, ostensibly).

I usually make a go of Monday’s motivation, the trend. I like YouTube videos about motivation or strategies to make life improvements. Even better, when Monday evening arrives, the Beauty Beyond Bones blog goes live. It is a superb discussion.

Why Starting to Discover TikTok is the Key to Hillary 2016

I never like guarantees that web-based efficacy is a losing strategy. No, I don’t mean Marvel’s web-slinging hero, I mean laments that the Internet will fade away, with history.

I altered my Twitter profile yesterday, something I complete four times each year, quarterly.  My new bio jokes that I am a social media advocate, which isn’t funny in of itself but reflects the fact that I am a fan of Twitter, so it’s nice, I feel, to express such.

Sure there is real-life social media advocacy.  With each open door to the millions who are on social, I accept that being on social is a fundamental bravo. I have faith in it.

I am part of my father’s business.  It isn’t modern showcasing.  We have a Facebook page with a few dozen individuals, a couple of who I sporadically communicate with.  You can find Maple Lawn Cemetery on Facebook here: http://bitly.ws/7xKe

As luck would have it, my mom sent me an email this week with a connection to TikTok, which my sister and her significant other had got on.  I hadn’ t known the two of them were using TikTok.  My sister and her husband live in England, and the companionship I have of her is generally restricted to letters by email, which is decent; yet I figured she would like it that I pursued her on TikTok.

I began to find TikTok.

I do worry about privacy, which everybody should worry about, but it was clear from the first few videos I enjoyed that a new door had opened.  Could you call it the grassroots of the Internet?  I don’t know that is an exact description, yet that is the sort of impression I got from my first experiences with the app.

Remember Hillary 2016, when Cambridge Analytica was implicated in shady election returns in the race for the US Presidency?  Facebook accounts affected by Cambridge Analytica, the firm entrusted with concocting a system to influence US voters, were accused of enacting a naughty political plan.  When this came to light, it was a gigantic scandal.

Both a hit to the public impression of Facebook’s reliability and the validity of Donald Trump’s administration, I wonder today what was going on with TikTok four years ago.  It jumped out at me to check it out.

The initial release of TikTok, I read, was in September 2016.  TikTok is the Chinese application that was the most downloaded in the US, in October 2018, Wikipedia presently says.  Interested users downloaded TikTok more than 104 million times on Apple’s App store during the full first 50% of 2018, as indicated by information given to CNBC by Sensor Tower, situated in San Francisco.

TikTok outperformed Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram to turn into the world’s most downloaded iOS application for that timespan. Live-streaming was no longer the biggest thing going.  “The biggest trend in Chinese social media is dying, and another has already taken its place,” CNBC said.

TikTok surpassed Facebook, YouTube and Instagram to become the world’s most downloaded iOS app for that time, Sensor Tower data indicated.

The Internet in China is broadly edited, and because there is such an enormous number of TikTok users, it’s undeniable that there’s a question of whether calculated external pressures are contributing to control at TikTok.  At the point when you take a gander at the truth that the Cambridge Analytica embarrassment started to require that web-based media be inspected and controlled, it makes sense that TIkTok could by and by be under a similar kind or increasingly unavoidable restriction, superficially so that there aren’t similar issues to what happened at Facebook in 2016.

It’s clear that while on the surface TikTok is home to countless videos, it wouldn’t be shocking if governments unrooted censorship issues.  I think it would be awful if problems similar to the Cambridge Analytica meddling repeated on TikTok or anywhere else, with such nefarious difficulties leading to the regulation of social media everywhere.  We’ve already had the proposal of Article 13 in the EU beginning to promise severe limitations on the use of memes in social media, like on YouTube.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am sure you know what a meme is, a kind of visual remix on the Internet, where one signifier is translated under a magnifying glass to mean something new and different.  Like Inspector Clouseau’s cartoon caricature in the introduction to many of the Pink Panther films, Peter Sellers chasing that elusive cat.  While Article 13 isn’t making strident progress, if a scenario occurred where social media became more and more censored, it would be the beginning of the end to countless promising opportunities.

We could make it the norm to pursue goals of unity and brotherhood, while enjoying economic success, a possibility for the same good fortune had social media never taken shape, as on platforms Myspace and Friendster, with a more level playing field.  If the decade ahead sees social media get dead and buried, that’s some of the best opportunities on the Internet falling by the wayside.

I don’t care for control.  TikTok has altered my impression of Internet video beginning with a couple of them shot by my sister and her better half.  I thought I would write about it as I can see a change in my habits beginning now that I am seeing for myself what TikTok is like.

It is fun, intrigue notwithstanding.  A debt of gratitude is in order.You’re free to like, to pursue, or potentially to remark.  Have an incredible week!

Warning: You are Losing Money by Not Ranking on the First Page of Google

To further demonstrate the method to my madness, for one, the purpose of divining astrology, and also to honor my family, I make Sunday phone calls. It is part of my weekend routine each week.

“I got Disney+,” Josh told me, last week, on the phone. “Clara wants it for the children’s entertainment.” Clara is his nine-year-old daughter. “I’ve begun watching The Mandalorian,” Josh let me know.

Josh’s one-eighty impressed me. Here was a chance to watch The Mandalorian, in the company of family. It may not come to pass, but it was a shot.

Clara

“It’s good,” Josh said. “You know nothing about the content,” he added, as though to remind me of my shortcomings.

I was a shade subdued. I am not sure he knows I carry a blog, in addition to helping operate the cemetery. I write content, I tweet content, I post content to Facebook. All of this criticized in a few words?

“Fair enough,” I think, which is what I say when I am put on the defensive.

I think, by the word content, Josh hears business like an original on Netflix, a hit on Prime, or the launch of The Mandalorian. He doesn’t think of free content as anything at all. I don’t think he is on Twitter, or that he does Facebook, whatsoever.

I usually read that if you have a business of your own, you need to put a website at the center. And when you have a website, you need search engines to put you in the first few results, so customers find your website before they find your competitors’. That’s the construct of SEO, you might put it, usually executed with sophistication by professional bloggers.

As aforementioned, my dad and I direct the operation of a cemetery, which is different than the usual sort of entrepreneurial venture in 2019. I feel pleased that we have a Facebook page. It’s just short of eighty people. https://www.facebook.com/LouthUnited/

I enjoy Facebook, even after the armageddon when fake news on Facebook was exposed as having swayed the 2016 U.S. election. I admire the zeitgeist of Big Tech and hope it perseveres.

My dad and I never hired a consultant to evaluate our website. Dad gave me the responsibility of being a web designer, for which I had zero professional experience. Our niche is not the kind of thing that is required every day.

Our intention with Facebook, and with ipage, are to make ourselves available for a family desiring peace in the cemetery, and who would like to look further into that. We take neither costs from people on the Internet, nor donations, although, perhaps, in the case of the latter, we should. http://www.maplelawncemetery.org/24701.html

For regular businesses, that wish to be used by regular Internet customers, showing up via relevant

keywords on the first page of Google is a giant advantage. Customers want ready access to services, not something relegated several pages in.

I am not sure how many entrepreneurial folks see my blog, but if you are that kind of person, you should ask yourself how you’re doing with your SEO, on Google. I can see readily why most people consider it important. It can get real results.

I have a theory of SEO that provides consistent results, but nothing extraordinary. I wonder if I can anticipate changing methods of SEO ahead of the curve. Trying that, I feel like I am onto something.

I possess that sometimes elusive quality of willingness to change.

20 Problems I Have Seen and Resolved

Today is Kaite’s thirty-fifth chasing the hobbit. She is happily married, to a great guy, and they have hopping careers. She has been known to help clarify life, with thoughtful Christmas contributions.


One gift was a special design, on a coffee thermos, a Maple Lawn Cemetery logo, for the cemetery for who I’m a computer monkey. She is one of our “friendlies.”

Why When We Are Young We Heed What We’re About

Like most, I remember the years of maturity coming into adulthood, reaching your late teens, and then beginning your twenties, I remember experiences of those years more favorably than other times. I sometimes remember those years more favorably than, indeed, they may have been.

I remember one night, the summer of the year 2000 it could have been, that I decided a change of scenery would do me good. I sneaked off to Toronto for a night of bands and the like, being then a smidgen wilder then than I am today.

The night was unique, for different reasons, but wouldn’t you know that when the witching hour was upon me, I had begun to make friends with a couple of other young guys, cool to me for their moxie–would you say there’s a three-letter-word for that? The two young gents told me where we could get something to drink, to keep the night lively. For nothing too expensive, we could keep having a good time.

We were enjoying another band, where I’d never been, with a glass of moonshine and the two of them the same, until one of the boys told me, awfully, that some other patrons had brought a gun, and we should go. That unnerved me, unfortunately, so caution prevailed.

I bid the two a polite goodbye, leaving them with my number back home in the suburbs, this being only the year 2000 I recollect. It was my parents’ number, for a later time to summon me to meet again.

The last few remaining hours of the night I spent, sadly, like a derelict, waiting for the morning transit. What is memorable, though, I twenty years later is that of the times I made a commute like that, this night, the one I am recounting, and some other nights like that, are typical of what shape my favorite memories of that time in my life.

It’s a brief story–you might not believe it. However, I think I could recall, maybe, a thousand specific experiences from those years. It is interesting what people interpret as memorable. I wanted this morning to touch base with those folk I connect with on WordPress.

I hope your autumn is going great.

Why You Shouldn’t Watch Halloween Horror in Bed (Notwithstanding @DarkCorners3)

Today is the day that Canadians go to the ballot box. The results will become clear this evening, but the CBC cable news channel is having a great day as the sun stretches over the land.

I am not as interested in that as I am in enjoying these days before Halloween.

About last week, The Stupendous Wave said that Lucasfilm would air a trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker during Monday Night Football, but there was no such trailer. It was a rumor.

Geeks + Gamers discussed what happened with the spurious announcement, pointing out that Esquire picked up the story. Geeks + Gamers in truth remain skeptics of the possibility that the Skywalker Saga will get a satisfying resolution. They were none too happy with Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

CNET reported yesterday that the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer is airing tonight on ESPN. There have been three official trailers.

The first shows Kylo Ren descending upon Rey, from the sky. It is certainly a bit of fun.

More recently, we got the eerie D23 trailer to enjoy. Many of the moments in that one are edited together from earlier Star Wars movies.

As this month is October, certain film fans need to enjoy a horror film every night of the month, not an uncommon practice. Horror film devotees often have a custom of announcing a choice of horror film for each night of October.

It impresses me that these fans don`t begin dreaming of awful matters. I think I would begin to have nightmares, visually ingesting that much horror. All the same, I have been able to glean insights into what major horror film fans consider worthy.

There is a weekly horror film tweet by @DarkCorners3 who is known for the web-series Dark Corners Reviews. The gentleman has made many videos highlighting horror films. His channel is a library of both obscurities and classics.

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/7789792.Robin_Bailes

Earlier this month I made a reply to one of those weekly review tweets, that was not only brilliantly retweeted by @DarkCorners3 himself, but also by Hammer Horror Films (@FilmsHammer). So I looked again at Dark Corners Reviews.

I listened to his discussions of Peter Cushing, in the role of Dr. Frankenstein, in the 1960s and 70s, and F. W. Murnau, who directed the vampire film Nosferatu, in the 1920s. @DarkCorners3 has clear intelligence for such matters, elaborating on many details of those films that I wasn’t aware of.

I tried to again think of something to match the tone of the reviews of @DarkCorners3. The movie Thor occurred to me, the dark fantasy. Actress Natalie Portman is in the cast as scientist Jane Foster, as is actor Chris Hemsworth as Thor the Avenger.

“So is this how you normally look?“ Jane asks.

“More or less,“ counters Thor.

“It’s a good look!“ exclaims Jane.

Naturally, there was a sequel to Thor two years later, Thor: The Dark World.

Thor is a film that may spare you nightmares, so it could be perfect viewing this month, getting comfy under the sheets, for not feeling like you are dodging the custom of watching something too, too scary.

Thor isn’t a Hammer film, of course, but don`t be deterred, if you are fond of stories of defenders of Earth. Actress Natalie Portman fascinates. The film is also popular enough that there is a good chance you`ve seen it, but by going back to again enjoy the 2011 Marvel adaptation, you could do worse.
