Blog Update And Coronavirus

I’ve been doing my best to pass on useful information regarding Coronavirus, as it’s the right thing to do (especially as fakestream media et al continues to lie). Also the situation is now obviously a pandemic, and a very serious situation.

I will try and keep up updates as and when I have time, but I do have a busy period ahead, that may prevent me from posting and answering comments etc, for a few weeks.

I have already shared many links for information sources, you can view all my Coronavirus posts here :

https://doncharisma.org/tag/coronavirus/

Thank you for following my blog, all the likes and comments – appreciated.

(Hopefully I’ll get back to more creative stuff later in the year.)

Hope you and your loved ones are safe.

Cheers

quote quotes wall, wall,art,graffiti,colors,quote, DON CHARISMA

Nietzsche – “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.”

Been browsing some of my fellow blogger’s blogs today, and I came across this quote. I think it’s worth passing on :

‘The one who answered himself the question: “Why live?” – Will be able to bear almost any answer to the question: “How to live?”‘

 

OR Sometimes expressed simply as:

 

‘He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.’

 

F. Nietzsche

I’m not widely read on Nietzsche, so don’t know “the most correct” of these quotes (suspect the first version), but the meaning is about the same.

Born To Be Wild – Steppenwolf (+Photos !)

(Experimental)

After some hours of trying to make a still photo slideshow with ffmpeg, I gave up. Some of the features are missing on the Windows version, would probably have been easier using Linux.

So I used the inbuilt video editor in Windows 10 to take a bunch of still photos, add music courtesy Steppenwolf. Then finally added my watermark of DonCharisma.org with ffmpeg.

So, long story short – it’s some photos I took, with music 🙂 Experimenting with a different format for presenting my photos – rather than a long page of photos.

Just The Two Of Us – Bill Withers – Valentines Day Special

Sorry it’s a bit late, I only just thought of it, I’m terrible with dates …

No idea if this is the best or even the right photo for this, but I like the bohemian thing going on with the guys just chillaxin’ playing games on their smartphones.

So for a “diversity is  our strength” valentines day, I made this :

(NSFW) Birds Of Prey – It’s A Garbage Movie – The Critical Drinker

The Critical Drinker turned up on my feed sometime ago. I find his reviews entertaining, and not pandering to minority political narrative. I seem to remember him saying he’s an bestselling author himself (although I never checked). He also seems to improve the more he drinks.

I’d say his reviews are for grown ups, he does use profanity, so maybe not full volume at work, hence – NSFW

*Yawn* … another female empowerment movie.

Something about going broke ? Dunno can’t quite remember that idiom.

Anyway …

(Nearly 500K views in 3 days, *WOW* not bad for indie media review) :

“Honey For Nothing” – Guest Blogger – UnionHomeStead.com

UnionHomeStead and I had some chats recently. I visited them on my “day off” and really liked their blog. Sorry I don’t know all your names, and it’s no worries, in these days where privacy is rare 🙂 (Google and FaceBook I’m looking at you)

They are Kiwis from New Zealand, running a smallholding, growing their own food and raising their own animals (and kids and children !). All as ethically as they can.

Some concerns where expressed to me, about being a guest blogged (presumably because of exposure to 39000 followers) – but I promise it’s really nothing to worry about. I’d say 99% of those following are nice people, or at least the ones that I’ve had the privilege to converse with. WordPress.com is much friendlier social network than Twitter etc., kinda why I”m still here.

Hopefully, my guest blogging UnionHomeStead.com will bring them some more followers and friends. They are nice people, feel free to pay them a visit, say I sent you.


Honey for Nothing…

Having been asked to guest by The Charismatic One is both incredibly flattering and hugely terrifying. What to write was the number one concern because here is where we confess to being *whisper* utterly, completely, totally disjointed from the world around us. Well, perhaps that is overstating things a tad. Way back when the Homestead was but a twinkle in two bright-eyed kids visage, we were rather proud of being up with the play and in the know. We had some pretty set ideas on ‘Right’ and ‘Wrong’ and we weren’t scared to scream ahem…speak them. In fairness, Maggie, Ron et al did give us plenty of fulminating fodder but we fumed with relish; waving our placards from our tiny piece of the planet. That is, right up until the little Homesteaders started along.

Intelligent Spam, Picking Best Photos And My Social Media Links

I remember I was quite offended at the time. It was fairly soon after I started my blog in 2014.

Thanks for following my blog. I suppose your blog is an intelligent kind of spam based on the wish of bloggers to let their ego develop on the net.

 

I have respect for your intelligence and wish you good luck.

 

(Kind thanks to drwilly of drwillylip.wordpress.com for a most excellent insult)

I came to realise, It’s actually a reasonable comment. A reasonable question to ask oneself. Sometimes criticism may seem harsh, but, it can be some of the best advice one will ever receive.

It’s a question I ask myself when I’m writing or sharing – is what I’m creating enriching people’s experience of life, or am I just creating “Intelligent Spam” ? Am I sharing something people wouldn’t normally see ? Am I distributing information which is interesting ? and so on.

Leak Humour And Country Flags (Water Filter Is Fixed BTW)

In response to my post about my leaky water filter (which is now fixed) – My friend and fellow blogger – who’s taking a break from blogging, and has been so kind in helping me, in my comments section, left me this comment today :

On a somewhat related note, when we first move into our house we started receiving calls all day from a waterproofing company who just would not take no for an answer. My wife, who worked night shift, got tired of the calls waking her up as she tried to sleep during the daytime.

 

Next time they called and asked if we had a problem with water leaking in the basement she responded, “Yes, we have a terrible problem. When it rains the water comes in and starts filling up the basement, but before it can get more than two feet deep it starts leaking out. Can they come out immediately and stop it? We just can’t get it deep enough to do any serious swimming.”

 

They never called back, but for a couple weeks afterwards she got nervous whenever someone came to the house, assured it was going to be the men in white coats coming to take her away.

As I said they he is taking a break from blogging, so please bear that in mind if visiting his blog (I’ve linked to, because I always cite sources with links if possible).

And, the “And” part :

I’ve been slowly adding the flags of the countries of my commenters on my sidebar (as I’m proud of my own flag, I assume others are too). Just added Spain, Australia, Canada and Denmark. If I missed anyone please leave a comment which flag you want to see and I’ll add it for you.

Archive Activism! Archive Every “News” Link You Post, Cross Platform

This guy has been posting some useful information regarding coronavirus – I just posted about UK imposing forced quarantine. The FT article I shared was behind a paywall.

So I picked it up from – http://archive.ph/

He also says that you can get articles from – https://archive.org/web/

As I understand it, I can share the article for “satire or discussion”, and guess what ? My posts have a comments section, ie a discussion, so I can re-post under copyright fair use rules.

Anyway – I’ll let “Styxhexenhammer666” explain more about “archive activism”, in order to hold the fakestream media to account :

Thailand Gunman Killed By Security Forces In Hours-Long Siege

I just heard about this. My condolences and deepest sympathy for the victims.

Reports suggest the shooter was a soldier who was having a land dispute with his CO. The CO was the first to be killed. The shooter then went on a killing spree, on the streets, then at a shopping mall. The shooter was eventually killed by the Thai security forces.

Thailand is now in mourning for the deceased. May the rest in peace.

Huawei – How To Pronounce ?

(That’s enough blogging for one day – time for some downtime)

No need to tell me the right answer, I’ve heard it on TV relating to UK 5G deal with Huawei.

But when I first saw the name on a phone in the phone shop … well … I tried to guess :

“Who are we”

“Who a wee”

“Who’re wee”

“Who way”

And then I’m joking with a friend, and I’m like

“Who the hell are we ?”

(It’s funnier if you try to pronounce it in English out loud)

Kind of ironic though, with the controversy surrounding the company, and then the UK government striking a deal with them, whilst the rest of the world don’t want to touch them with a barge pole.

Comments invited 🙂
