Thoughts first. Statements second. Silly versus serious. The stupid and the bright. Whatever, bitch. It's my blog.

“If your boyfriend looks a lot like George R.R. Martin, YOU ARE TOO INTO GAME OF THRONES.”

Just heard that people are torrenting Netflix shows. Seriously? Get a job!

And now ESPN moves it back. This is so fucking stupid. Why pay to be able to cover this sport when there is such a thing as tennis channel that can do a better job? I’ll tell you. ESPN doesn’t care about tennis. They just care about the revenue dollars and force the folks that follow the sport to deal with subpar and disrespectful coverage.

So ESPN moves the ladies tennis final at the western and southern open so they could continue to show a game of the little league World Series, a bunch of kids who aren’t professional players and most likely won’t be professional players, and then shows commercials for said World Series while I’m watching the women’s final, where one of the greatest tennis players of all time, Serena Williams, is playing, a professional player with 15+ years in the tour. I’m not saying we shouldn’t show kids play but this is just to illustrate our country’s lack of priorities when it comes to sports. This is why kids get big dreams in their eyes and then live depressed lives, that these others kids are being made money on. At least the professional players know what they signed up for.

I fucking hate Disqus

I would plea with the internet to stop using it as it’s a clunky platform, but it’s too ingrained and has no competitor. Why do I hate it?

1. It never remembers me. I typically have to sign in to my twitter account, and then it passed me to my Disqus account to sign in, and I was just in a few days ago. What’s the point of having me sign in twice, especially if I’ve authorized the app MULTIPLE TIMES! If I’m signed into Twitter, that fact should pass through the API and that’s it!

2. It crashes constantly. Case in point, after suffering through the double log in to post my comment, the Disqus part of the page just started disappearing. I decided to refresh the page, and yeah, my bad for not copying the comment, but my comment was gone, and then I realized I was better off not participating in the discussion if it was going to be this difficult.

3. I have absolutely no reason to login to Disqus. I have no use for it. All I want to do is post a comment on an article I read on a blog I like. That’s it. What do I need to do in Disqus? I get email alerts anyway, and I’m going to want to go back to the article page, not to Disqus anyway.

So that’s it. I’m not using this garbage software anymore. I’d rather be silent.
