Halloween party went to sh*t like the weather today

By the way yeah, my Halloween party on the 31st was canceled. Due to the cold weather, I was so busy getting things together at the last minute I did not watch the news reports for the weather. Also, I did not take care of the Blogger problem until now because I was too busy taking down decorations and eating leftover food and candy.

So now my fat ass has been figuring out ways to get rid of candy at work, friends and family places/houses. Also lugging these decorations back into storage, a bit at a time has been a pain in the ass too. Flashbacking to the blogger issue I finally got the password issue with Google taken care of, but now I am posting “happy Halloween” in November.

So, the last two weeks have been just about cleanup. But what else is new when dealing with Oak Park, IL? I will change various plans due to the weather being as cold as hell. And today’s weather is just bad, cold and not worth going out in. but at least I am getting this blog back on track.

Posting on blogger for Oak Park, IL

I am trying to catch up and post on the blogger version of this blog. However, Google is doing that crazy-ass thing where it wants me to add the blood type of my grandmother to my profile to even sign into the account. I refuse to do that or add my phone number because I figure Google is selling enough of my data to various companies, so I will just wait until I have time to get to a dedicated computer to finish that task.
Therefore, if you see this post on the blogger version of this blog it was a success. I just love how Google is taking away all the freebies they once were offering like some people won’t just leave out of principle.

Blogger issues for Oak Park, IL blog

I hate Facebook and Google. I tried to post last week’s postings on Blogger via Google and got the runaround. I need a verification code to get in the account, but it came like 4 days later. Therefore, today I am going back and logging in, and rushing to put those four posts on today for the only two people who read the blogger version of this blog.

Its almost as if Google/Blogger wants to meet Facebook in being outdated. I have had a lot of issues with Google, more than I have had with WordPress. And when it comes to Facebook, its just a mess and I have not been on it for a while. The worse part about it is that WordPress no longer works in conjunction with Facebook, therefore I have no real reason to check it. Making that program/app obsolete as well. I think that when it comes down to it, I keep the Blogger account just as a back up to the WordPress account.

Over obsessive, I guess.  Therefore, that is why these posts are late, and now you can see why posting anything on a blog can be a challenge. Creativity be damned coming up with new blogs all the time is hard but when you have technical issues added to it, one’s hatred for the technical becomes apparent. And the challenges mount and become evident to everyone.

“No face pics baby?” Riigghtt

Most people ask why I don’t show my face on social media as much, have an Instagram account or do livefeeds good questions, easy explanation: people are fucking crazy. Well it goes back to when I first started the blog and I started a twitter account for it to increase the avenues to speak of my “love” for this village. However when I started to discuss Hemingway some dude just came out and attacked me, now, to be fair, I think he was selling a book of something, so the dude needed heat or some shit. I simply ignored the asshole because he gave me the creeps.

All the articles or information I had on Hemingway was preexisting and can easily be found online all I did was merely put it together in a format for people to reference or read at their hearts delight in one place. This of course was all before the #metoo movement which the dude would have thought twice about exhibiting such behavior, however it was enough for me to just do the blog on WordPress and blogger and that’s it. Extending it more means more time to this project, and add to that I am not getting paid why bother overextending myself with some dude who wants to argue about facts is just silly.

Argue about facts, facts about Hemingway that have been previously established by authors and historians, to me it just seemed a bit “crazy pants” so I left that dude alone and left the blog stuff limited to just the platforms I have previously mentioned. I definitely do not like having stalkers or nutjobs that feel the need to argue about nothing and for no reason. That is just crazy as shit, and anyone who knows me knows I am only crazy when given a reason. LOL so that is the answer to that question.

Letting it all hang out in Oak Park, IL

I am not surprised that the majority of people rather trade their privacy for convenience, online. The article (see below) does not really surprise me at all in the age of everyone can be a star or show off how narcissistic they can be for free. I mean we are all guilty of posting some type of pictures of ourselves online it just matters to what extent. I have a Facebook, WordPress and blogger/google account but I do not add tons of pictures and often the pictures are after the fact of the event in question. So yes, I have been to Kentucky however I am not stupid enough to tell everyone on Facebook at the exact time I was there, saving my place from a possible break-in.
I really think that the majority of people are sheep and have a “follow the leader” mentality and post pictures and personal details online not because they are doing something important like telling family members of an upcoming wedding or funeral. But instead something mundane because their friends have done so (in the past) so they see no problem with their posts, the “everyone is doing it” argument. But if you have had your place broken in before or are naturally paranoid you veer away from giving the details of your life online. Just because it has not happened to you does not mean it cannot.
The notion of convenience is blurred with the need for acceptance or approval, when we really just need to think clearly and post or navigate online with caution. I do not see the residents of Oak Park, Il following suit, it is just not in their DNA to do so. There is a need for showmanship, a desire to put all on display, a requirement to be “out there” in front of the entire world. We all probably driven the one of the village’s many streets and glanced right into someone’s house window and saw everything they owned in that three second glance. This I would soundly bet is one of those people who believe it is okay to surrender their identity and privacy for the convenience of either the world wide web or for living in Oak Park, IL.
And of course, it is always okay until something bad happens then individuals get wary of “sharing” their personal facts online or with wide open windows. We should all have some type of security and privacy, and we should be entitled to it than either being some perv’s whacky fantasy or a huge corporation’s data victim. Do not sacrifice privacy for convenience or drapes for that open window “look” because in the end you may regret it and once it is out there for all to see it is most likely too late.
This is the article I mentioned above:

Oak Park, IL blog on Instagram? Nope

Someone asked me about Oak Park, Il blog on Instagram, so I should answer if the blog would ever be on there. Never say never but at this point it’s never. The Oak Park, IL blog is on WordPress, Blogger/Google, I have a Facebook account and a Twitter account (which I am barely on due to stalkers) since this is more about me giving the middle finger to Oak Park, IL than a business or me being obsessive. In other words, there is really no need for an Instagram account for Oak Park, IL LOL

I am not narcissistic nor do I feel I should give this village an avenue for more positive bullshit, that an Instagram account would espouse. In every publication or social media venue than Oak Park, IL has it’s all smiles and fake shit anyway, I know isn’t that what Instagram all about? But that is not what this is about at all. All I got to say is be glad there are actual amateur pictures of the shitty little village.

And if you wonder “Oh what you look like? all I see are photos that are adjusted in some way…” again I know how pervs are and also if wanted the attention I would hang with my friends and/or family, peeps. To me, the business here is about keeping it focused on Oak Park, IL the stuff that is usually not negatively associated with it. And remember Instagram is only for 24 hours! All these blogs I have written would before shit, I think the fucks in Oak Park, IL would love that! Therefore, Instagram + Oak Park, IL is a no go.

Instagram is down, yeah no thanks:

A Description of Instagram from the I-tunes store:

FUCK THAT

Oak Park, IL Blog wallpaper

I made a couple more wallpapers for the blog, just logo (text) wallpaper, keeping it plain and simple, but also giving the posts the needed “color” without worrying about taking pictures or hunting for images all day. I find that these simple wallpapers as help when I promote the blog on other sites.

This “branding” not only makes it easier for me to focus on content but also is a great lesson in marketing. I see why big corporations put their names everywhere because it lessens the need for spending money or time on graphics or anything to unnecessary or over the top. I know one of the things I have been critical of oak park, Il about is not focusing upon practical issues and solutions.

Therefore, these simple text wallpapers are the epitome of that belief and strategy. I must say although they will be simple I will add a sense of humor to them as well. Enjoy. https://plus.google.com/u/0/102222691833581930279/posts/jVBFAiJUH91

Oak Park, Il blog related: WordPress acting crazy??

Okay, what the hell? So, I read a blog post bout another writer that I follow who stated in one of their posts “WordPress shut down” which left me wondering. Mainly because the blog is like academic and I read it to help me with my school projects, you know free tips and downloads stuff like that. I “pm” him (private message) on fb asking what he meant about that. And he responded that WordPress shut DOWN his blog because the stated the automatic filtering program decided he had infringed on the terms of service.

Being an academic blog it made me wonder why it would do that? But the answer he gave me when he asked the same question was that WordPress could not tell him what happened in detail and what he could do in the future to prevent it! Then told him to just post “original content to ensure that a similar block does not happen again in the future”

Hence my question is: if he got the blog back up and the filter made a mistake, then whose fault is it really? How can WordPress trust the filtering system if it is making mistakes this? Who would put money into establishing a WordPress site or blog if it can all get taken away from you by a faulty program? If I was in school this blog being down would screw with my world, so what if he was an affiliate with a highly successful blog, would Word Press compensate him for the money lost by the site shut down?

All this makes me glad that I am not only on Word press but Google/Blogger. This dude is too but has told me he will “dump” all the articles he has written onto a Wix or Weebly site too. To ensure that if WordPress gets crazy once again the blog “lives” on. I was thinking of the same thing just take all my writings and dump it all at once on a Wix or Weebly account to further piss off the masses.

In any case, this is just FYI for all of you that have an account with WordPress, back that shit up on a Microsoft Word or text document so all the work you do on the internet is not lost forever to a stupid ass computer program and pure laziness.

Oak Park, IL blog: Contributor

I did mention my friend Sarah will be writing a contributing blog post that talks about all the hatred she has in her heart regarding Oka Park, IL it is still in the developmental stages but it will come soon she tells me. I also have another blogger that has reached out to me about their feeling about Oak Park, IL, so I will be working with them about posting those “wonderful” thoughts here as well. Ann has discussed a couple of subjects via email that she wanted to talk about, and since this is America, and blogs are here on Oak Park, Il are based on experiences with this shit hole, I am going ahead to see what she has to say.

Now that is not a definite but do not be surprised to see a “contributor” label on some of these posts very soon! It is true that not everyone loves, likes or even gives a shit about Oak Park, Il and why should they be silenced because it does not meet the conformist, fascist standards of Oak Park, IL? This little village can suck my ass and sell the rest of their properties to Sweden for all I care. Being the bastion of freedom that I am, I cannot wait to help give them a voice, and a place to talk about their shitty experiences with Oak Park, IL. Oh, and you can too just comment and everything and anything.

PS: I love Swedish pancakes so if Oak Park, Il sells their entire village to Sweden, I know that is not possible, but I would be pleased. I would be sooo happy to have Swedish pancakes with lingonberries everyday as long as I am here. Truly, try them, they are the shit.

Grammarly for Oak Park, IL blog

One of my fellow students told me to get a program called Grammarly to help with the Grammar issues I have with my papers and assignments for class. I was like “I am nearly done with my degree program damn it!” but besides the stupid “passive tone” warning that I usually get when writing this stuff for school it is a fine program better than the spell and grammar check in the Microsoft word program.

I am just stating this because as I go through the Word document that all my original posts for this blog is on, with the Grammarly program you may notice some changes. Meaning that it will sound/look less like how I talk in the posts and be closer to PROPER English! HAHA! So I know I can be ghetto, sometimes. Anyway I want to put that out there just in case, so y’all know you are not going crazy.

Also If you want to say anything crazy about Oak Park, IL or anything Oak Park, Il related stuff like Ernest Hemingway or Frank Lloyd Wright, I can edit it and post it here just do not be too crazy or racist-y and I will put that shit on here. I know most people do not want to go through the work of posting a blog and maintaining one. Writing a post is hard enough then trying to edit it, add appropriate pictures, adding the right tags all that stuff is a job in itself which I can do for you and state a “Collaborator” sign/graphic to it and the name that you want to be credited for the article. Just email me. I may ask a couple of questions but most likely if it is about Oak Park sucking I will put it out there.
