Random Stuff that Comes to Mind While Scrolling Facebook

AC/DC beats Metallica every time.

As far as dead rappers go, I never got into Tupac’s music, but I really like The Notorious B.I.G.

Whenever I need to use “effect” or “affect”, I have an argument with myself over which word is correct. Consulting a dictionary or thesaurus does not make it clear for me.

Glock makes fine pistols and I have no problem with Glocks, but if you wanted to know my favorite manufacturer, I would say Smith & Wesson.

In the Chevy Vs Ford war, I’ve had negative and positive experiences with both makes and I don’t think either is better than the other, but I’ve always felt a sort of loyality to Ford, maybe because my dad always had a Ford when I was growing up.

Mike Rowe is smarter than Donald Trump and Barack Obama combined.

A Bench

Finally got a bench on my front porch. This one isn’t really meant to be outside and the weather might destroy it in time, but I’ll just see how long it lasts. It’s used and already has some damage, so it’s no biggie.

 

After the Burn

I know some people are offended by my last blog entry. But a lot of people are sharing  stuff that gets under my skin. I try to ignore it, but sometimes it gets to me. I don’t expect anyone is going to stop sharing things I don’t like. I think it’s reasonable that I might respond in a way they don’t like. I shouldn’t have to sit quiet while others spout things that bother me.

That last entry is not directed at anyone in particular. I posted it on my website and crossposted it to Facebook and JAD. I want to get it out to as many people as possible. Even so,  I reckon some people are taking it personally. That’s understandable. I take a lot of their stuff personally, even when it’s not directed at me.

A Blank Wall

This is the back of my office. There used to be a small desk and an end table with a lamp on it. But it felt pretty crowded with that stuff in here, so I moved it all out a few weeks ago.  So, now there’s just a wall.

I want to hang a picture there. I’m thinking the picture would be five feet long and three feet high. But not just any picture. I want a picture that would give the impress that you’re looking out the window of a tall building (not necessarily a skyscraper) in an urban area. The view would be of the streets and buildings, even houses, restaurants and gas stations, things like that.

I guess I’m looking for a picture that would show more of a community/residential area and less of a downtown commercial area. And something that’s not really artistic, but just a simple view.

I haven’t found the right picture yet.

ETA
Maybe “urban” isn’t the right word for it, but I’m not sure “suburban” is either, or maybe it’s a combination of both, “urban” and “suburban”.
