Was "Oh my papá" as sung by Jim Nabors a song about the Pope?

I guess the real reason I haven't posted updates to my blog is because of my father falling ill with Covid. It began in January and Pop's been laid up in a care facility since then. We all do our part, my siblings and myself, to assist in his rocovery, but not from Covid as he conquered that weeks ago. He has an infected open wound on his foot that has him bedridden as the doctor has advised not to put any weight on it untll it heals. But the pain that courses through his legs seems to be what really has him laying in bed all day.

Another reason for not writing is technology. JotterPad is the app I've been using for most of my note taking habits.

Whenever I accumulate enough content, I'll usually copy and paste my text to an email application and email my entry to lj instead of using their mobile app. While technology has proved helpful in note taking on the go, composing on a virtual keypad can be arduous. I'm currently typing this entry with a manual typewriter. I plan to take a photo of it later and copy text onto my phone to paste it into JotterPad. JotterPad has templates and I want to try the two-column template. This template uses YAML, and JotterPad exports the finished 2-column page as PDF only.

The goal is to calculate column length this way. Before I discovered this YAML supported template, the way I was composing my 2-column entries was by using the word count feature in JotterPad and dividing by two. This technique was always trial and error. Give and take one or two lines of text to even out the
columns. I prefer creating two columns for my entries because of readability. I'll still be using the same html table code, but instead of copying and pasting the content I write using JotterPad (without tables), I'll be copying the text from the PDF document that JotterPad exports.

What a difference it is to be able to compose content on a manual typewriter rather than a smart phone! Next obstacle in this process will be font size as the columns are going to fluctuate if I can't figure out how to specify a fixed width font for the 2-column PDF version that JotterPad exports. Normally I would reserve the Royal Quiet De Luxe portable for my screenwriting entries, but I began exploring using JotterPad's Fountain feature to compose. I’m indifferent over posting scenes using Fountain output or scanning hard copy to jpg.

Although, the community writing prompt blog I moderate hasn't been tweaked to recognize the fountain html the way blanketsin.com has, using css stylesheet for tmtwngm is next on the todo list.

I'm excited to say that I received an SMS from none other than the Manhattan Madame and we exchanged dialog wherein I explained, in a nutshell, who the hell I am, to her! I don't know how much influence my vote has in a country that is battling voting poll corruption, but I asked her to run in 2024. Between Kamala Harris and Kristin Davis, or any other female candidate, my vote is for the Manhattan Madame.𓅱

My screenwriting question

  1. How to describe in screenwriting when the dialog of the next scene overdubs the current scene as a prelude causing "the audience" to register the audio as off synch. Normally, the synching of audio doesn't take more than a few seconds, The impact of which should have a result of abandoning the gravitas of previous scene with the situation at hand (present scene).
  2. how many tiktokers are you subscribed to and are they Capricorns?


How do you like your bacon? Crunchy, chewy?

Who can travel?
this maniac (Hsu Can Tran) who massacred a group of dancers... WTF?? At age seventy no less. Reminded me upon learning his name of a YouTube first amendment auditor, who's argument with a law enforcement officer detaining him about sitting in his vehicle behind the drivers seat (with the engine off) for not showing policeman his drivers license was that he hadn't broken any laws because he wasn't even driving the car. He kept saying "I'm traveling"

reminds me of that Baldwin boy weaseling out of a murder charge.Collapse )

There’s so many websites on the subject of screenwriting, some of them have begun parodying the writing-prompt-community-structured-blog. And if that's the case, then I may be in the crosshairs (referring to tmtwngm. Hmm? Let me try annd understand what I 'jest said. The above image is a Reddit group. It anppears to be well helmed, to the point of using a Nazi guard policing practice. There’s also a discord group linking themselves with r/writingcirclejerk. From the short while that I was permitted to lurk around before getting myself banned (possibly for an entire month), it seems the bunch overly eager grad students working on a thesis about AI in daily society. You know the type, unemployed scholarly know-it-alls. My first impression of r/writingcirclejerk was originally that of new tactic writing community blogge, a solution to all screenwriting websites out there. The disclaimers are overwhelming, I wish somebody could spend some online time lurking to figure it all out (And explain it to me.) but I’m now reluctant to seek guidance by their overly moderators. Are moderators like cyberspace cops?

I d do don’t remember when I downloaded this. Just like I don’t remember my iPads virtual keyboard having swipe capability.

I wonder if it’ll be difficult getting this app back on my phone if and when I decide to upgrade to the 15. Wow! What a jump, from 12 to 15.

The new camera application I'm still figuring out. It is called the Hipstamatic. I opted for this pin-hole camera among other flavors that the in-app purchase feature offers. It only shoots in black and white and although I’ve always been about conservation in memory size that a photograph uses, I really like the GPS metadata that it attaches to each photo. I’ve used BitCam for a rather long extent because of the small size files it generates but regretted not having that GPS feature.

That’s why discovering that this pin-hole camera app uses memory in the megabyte range as opposed to the kilobyte range has me pondering my lacking of identity. That I could cave so easily from one concept of shooting photos at anything and everything without worrying about size, to a camera app that consumes so much memory has me reeling over whether this characteristic in my assertiveness has something to do with identity disorders.

I was the one who was very decided in what I wanted to be as an adult cartoonist, but too embarrassed to announce it to the people that might have pointed me in that direction during my adolescent school years. So I majored in Commercial Art very decidedly. In other words, I wasn’t the college student who listed as a major and minor “undecided”. Thankfully I came to my senses on how much I despise commercials and dropped out of school halfway thru the curriculum.

In the back of my mind I'm thinking, I'll just utilize all the art stuff I learned for commercial art to try to get more followers, but livejournal only lets me send messages to livejournal members in text format.

While I brainstorm that idea, I'm using jotterpad to list procedures of digging up already established lj-ers with an interest in writing then adding those who qualify. Step two is to send a message to alert prospective screenwriters that they have a pending invitation that expires in about one months time.

I also add notes to their livejournal profile indicating that I have solicited their account because BS observes anti-spamming practices.

The commercial art skills I gained in school before dropping out will serve helpful.

Taboo topics that can get you killed

Realizing I’m in the minority because of my humble view on hot pink uniform reform for the LAPD, ‘no comment’ seems to be the only way to express my disapproval of all police. There’s bad cops, there’s green cops, that don’t know how to be cops, yet and there’s all cops uniformly dressing themselves intimidatingly.

A cop’s salary is nothing to sneeze at, and just like George Santos has become the poster child for lying on a one’s résumé to get ahead, we all understand how small fibs in police reports have divided a people’s trust. What I mean is, I use to fear cops whenever I’d see them while driving, but since George Floyd happened, I fear my own safety when I see a cop. I feel this way because of the lying factor each time a cop makes an arrest. A dark colored uniform will hide the facts of how an arrest was made, offering an policeman to abuse his power of immunity by simply omitting certain facts about the scuffle that may have taken place.

How much impact hot pink uniforms could make against corruption in such fibs would eliminate a sergeant’s involvement in the process of reviewing police reports if the officer handing in his report had stains on his uniform directly related to events left out in the report. In other words, I imagine that the whole reviewing process involves the same skepticism a policeman is trained to have when interviewing suspects and witnesses. So, a cop that returns to his precinct dirty from fighting would no doubt prognosticate anyone reading his report in anticipation of a fight scene.

I won’t even go into how many young and healthy people die as a result of what cops are trained to believe is less lethal tasing over shooting.

Truly a mystery, how people cannot see the juxtaposition between police officers and holocaust Kapos, for what is a policeman’s job if it isn’t regulating their own people. On top of all that, if cops are people too, then policemen should expect unkind words from citizens like ‘Have a bad day; find a bullet for your brain’ because, after all, those might make damn good lyrics for a new heavy metal song. Have I mentioned that metal is not dead? I know it isn’t mainstream, but a lot of that may have to do with the FCC. I mean I just recently started a SiriusXM subscription and can’t tell you how much I miss listening to DJs who have the same taste in music. So when I listen to lyrics that say I’m a creep, and I find myself singing Radiohead’s Creep in the shower, amidst other songs with stronger lyrics, I’m eventually going to identify with my inner creep. Or killer instinct and what have you. So for me , ‘have a bad day; find a bullet for your brain’ is really not so bad and I hope to hear it used in response to some of the tyrant videos recorded by first amendment auditor influencers. 🐑

That feel good feeling of the downfall of powerful entertainment industry movers and shakers

For what it's worth, I signed this online petition to make adjustments to IMDb's profile of Harvey Weinstein. I find retribution to be an even exchange for giver-upper syndrome contracted from rejection notices for my bad comic strip ideas, my bad Calligraphy, photos, freelance ventures. I can't even complete a full length feature film writing process long enough to seek an agent because of the negativity of being rejected.

So when somebody as powerful as Harvey Weinstein meets the end of his reign, I comb the Internet for pictures of dilapidated pictures of monsters like Harvey.

Here's the link

After googling "Harvey Weinstein mugshot" with zero results, I quora'd the question why. Is it a question of the gravity of the crime committed that factors into whether a mugshot appears online with booking number being held by the convict?
