2010's Nostalgia

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Events, Life Nov 12 2017 · 61 views
2010s
:kaukau: When people eventually make a nostalgic period piece of this decade thirty years from now, how will they depict it? What will be some of the hall-marks? Here's what I predict (in no particular order):

1. The rise of Youtube as one of the most dominant mediums of information. Make sure to include references to Gangnam Style and PewDiePie.
2. Superhero movies. Lots and lots of superhero movies. As in holy freaking cow so many superhero movies. Four Avengers movies, a Justice League movie, two Spider-Man reboots, and several expanded universes.
3. STAR WARS resurgence.
4. Disney transcending to another dimension.
5. People stopped complaining about CGI.
6. Hand-drawn animated films made like unicorns.
7. Frozen. We just couldn't...let it go.
8. The epic conclusion of the Harry Potter series...and then its refusal to die.
9. Artsy directors began winning awards for using more long, unedited shots.
10. D-d-d-d-d-d-dubstep.
11. Memes practically becoming a second language.
12. Facebook becoming Big Brother.
13. Presidents (and even more powerful people, such as Ellen DeGeneres) having Twitter feeds.
14. The race make sure that we watch everything in 4K.
15. High-budget television shows with impressive long-form stories.
16. Fifty-dozen crime shows existing all at once.
17. The Big Bang Theory essentially being the only notable sitcom.
18. "YOLO," "bae," "snowflakes," "deplorables," "hashtag."
19. Instagram
20. Hipsters. Particularly young men who combine beards with glasses. Bowties are optional.
21. Taylor Swift switched from sweet country to edgy mainstream. And the subject matter of her most popular songs...well, do I really need to say it?
22. Dabbing
23. The 51st Superbowl (but only among serious football enthusiasts)
24. Schools started using laptops in their classrooms.
25. Low tolerance for bullying.
26. Every major song requiring a rap in the middle.
27. People s tarted experimenting with self-driving cars for the first time (although it won't be mainstream for another decade or two).
28. All of the baby boomers became old farts.
29. Vaping.
30. Instead of playing Dungeons and Dragons, those Stranger Things kids would have played Cloud games, CoD, and Skyrim, Minecraft, Five Nights at Freddy's, and Pokemon Go.
31. Siri
32. The U.S. female gymnasts won in the all-around and the individual twice in a row.
33. Michael Phelps finishing his career for the forgiveness of our sins. His peace he leaves us, his peace he gives us. Amen.

Once you get outside of culture and technology and look at world events, again in no particular order:

1. Canada elects really great hair
2. America elects really bad hair.
3. Tons of protests. Everywhere. By everyone.
4. LGBT rights.
5. Pope Francis.
6. Royal Weddings
7. North Korea goes bonkers.
8. Benjamin Netanyahu
9. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria
10. Osama bin Laden getting hammered.
11. ISIS
12. Brexit

Overall, I find this decade a bit more memorable than the 2000's. It should be pretty easy for future generations to build up a stereotype for 2010's atmosphere when making period pieces.

Silence Isn't Gold

Gracie Gold, Olympics, depression and 1 more...
:kaukau: Gracie Gold withdrew from the Grand Prix recently and announced that her reason for doing so was because she is struggling with depression and an eating disorder. There's a lot of drama going on in sports these days that I don't pay much attention to, but I do pay attention to this. It also breaks my heart that she's going through this, because I also struggle with depression as a disorder, and furthermore, I wanted more than anything to see her come back and succeed in the 2018 Olympics. I really wanted to see her rise to new levels. That's looking increasingly unlikely, but I admire her bravery to admit that she needs to help more than she needs a medal. God bless you, Grace.

Hurricane Nate, hurricane and 3 more...
:kaukau: Another possible hurricane coming our way. When people look back on 2017, this is hurricane season is going to be one of things that people remember. Some of the leftover water from the hurricanes has been making its way up to the Heartland, and it's been raining for over a week now, and there were flash flood alerts on my drive home.

In other news, Mexico continues to send help. Great neighbors, those guys.

Definition of Terrorism

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Events Oct 04 2017 · 71 views
Las Vegas
:kaukau: People kind of get passionate about this, but for me it's pretty simple. A terrorist is not the same as a murderer or a mass murderer. A terrorist is someone who causes great chaos and disruption in life specifically in order to cause terror. If someone kills a limited number of people (or destroys a building or other such public display of anarchy) in order to make a whole country afraid and panic just enough to go against its best interests, then it's terrorism. It must have the objective of psychologically intimidating a large group of people and provoking social unrest. If terror isn't a part of the motive, then it's just murder (or arson, if we're walking about destroying buildings). It's sort of like hate crimes, which aren't technically worse than normal crimes; it's just that the term hate-crime specifies motive.

I bring this up because people are calling the mass shooter in Las Vegas a terrorist, but I'm going to withhold the term until I know more about his motive, which is currently unknown, since word choice matters to me. However, I don't have an issue with others using the word, since given the scale of the crime, it's highly likely that he did want to instill fear in people and cause social unrest, the objectives of a terrorist. I only make these clarifications just in case I talk about these sorts of things at other people notice my word choice and try to read into it. There's nothing political to interpret about it. Until then, I will refer to him as "murderer" and "an evil man," which are less specific, but express an accurate sentiment.

If this man received any help in accomplishing what he did, I sincerely hope that the FBI can track down whoever assisted him and deliver justice for the people of Las Vegas.

Additionally, don't be afraid to go out in public spaces. If this person is indeed a terrorist, than he wins if you let your fear control you. And even if he didn't specifically want to scare you into locking yourself in home all day, you still shouldn't panic. The world didn't turn into a war-zone. I hate to bring up statistics, but it's very unlikely that you will die in a mass shooting. Worry instead about the everyday things that you worried about before, like getting good grades, or getting a promotion, or asking out that girl you like, or maintaining your diet. The dead should absolutely be mourned; just make sure that you live lives of hope in their wake.

:kaukau: I don't know you personally. I can't see into your hearts, and know whether you're good to your neighbors in your daily lives. Perhaps this storm has only brought the worst in you. Regardless, stop it. What you're doing is wrong, and disrespectful to all who have lost so much.

On a side note, I would like to wish my sister a happy birthday. Ironically, I had phone conversations with just about everyone else in the family but her. Man, I feel pretty bad about that. However, I think that I will be driving up to Minnesota next weekend to make it to her joint birthday party with cousins, so hopefully that will make up for it. Love you so much.

Harvey and Irma

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Events Sep 08 2017 · 58 views

:kaukau: Harvey and Irma Schluter have been married for 75 years. That's an insanely long time. I'll be lucky if I even live that long. He's now 104, and she's 92. They've seen just about everything during their lifetimes, and now they've got to see two of the most damaging hurricanes in history come back-to-back, sharing their names. Fortunately, they live in Washington, so they're not getting pelted over the head with any sort of irony at the moment.

Anyway, glad to see how seriously the state of Florida is taking evacuations. Very organized. Furthermore, Jose doesn't look like it's going to hit landfall, and Katia is shaping up to be pretty mild.

:kaukau: "I cannot stress this enough, do not ignore evacuation orders. Remember, we can rebuild your house, but we can't rebuild your life." - Governor Rick Scott

Harvey's death toll now stands at seventy. That's way too high. And I don't merely want fewer deaths, but no deaths at all. The only way to guarantee this is if everyone evacuates far enough in advance.
