The more I soak my dumb face in the development of this site, the more I get into …pretty much every single aspect of it. I was just fine with having a nice place to keep an online journal…now it’s getting noticed. A bunch of plugins failed when they bumped to v4…was that two weeks ago? Anyway, I fixed the problems but for some reason, I wanted to see if I could make it look a little cooler. I’ve been customizing the theme I settled on, testing a few scripts, a few days ago I started using cascading style and TODAY, I dug up a book my uncle gave me on Web Design – “WEB DESIGN IN A NUTSHELL” by Jennifer Niederst. It’s about 560 pages and I read every damn word. That’s just the kinda guy I am …there’s so many possibilities different things I can do with this technology I’ve buried myself up to the neck in it for months and I only just realized Ive hardly scratched the surface of what all the creative energy and traffic and readers could lead to. I can feel a synergy building. This is the most exposure I’ve ever had. I graduated at the top of journalism class, Cal Poly’s own 2003-2004 Outstanding Senior Broadcaster. I’d quit the Mustang Daily in 02, the editors only published my sports coverage, features and restaurant reviews…I turned in hard news all the time, covering every thing I could get my hands on…the students had a lot of problems with the community, The university was overcrowded and they were not just failing the students on parking and class availability…we had several women who’d been raped an murdered, a VERY disproportionate amount, The police were abusive and the fraternities (it was considered uncool-“paying for friends” is what we called it) were using GHB to rape women. One of those houses kept a bottle of “Faderade” in the fridge, which was, I suppose kept readily available? In case you unexpectedly need to rape someone? Just a sip was enough to turn someone into a corpse for 12 hours. One morning…one of them boys got up all hungover and dehydrated. He pounded the whole bottle. His roomate found him a few hours later when he woke up.
I had a line on everything going on, I wrote stories about all of it. Those editors would never publish my good stuff though…so I spent the last 2 of my 6 years at 93.1 KCPR. They let me cover whatever I wanted to. They even made me the News Director. I was there when riots broke out at our big Mardi Gras blowout…hidin in a friends garage from the police who rolling with those things that look like tanks…on bullhorns telling everyone to get the fuck out. Then they tear gassed the whole block and when I tried to run back to my studio I got shot by a bean-bag gun. By then I was interning at the local Clear Channel Affiliate I produced morning news and call screened the afternoon talk show. For the scandals they never published in the Daily, KCPR and KVEC let it all out….every monday they wanted to know sort of shit I got myself mixed up in…they encouraged it. Cuz that’s what I do. Whatever sorts of shit is going on? I get ALLLLLLLL mixed up in it. Maybe that’s why I cab still write a decent clip. I been mixed up in every sort of shit you can think of….and I got a lot to say about it.
There arent too many jobs in SoCal, or anywhere for writer/reporters/commentators….now I got this WordPress thing goin on. I’m not backing away from this growing readership that’s priceless to me. I want more—so I’m giving YOU more.

What we have today- is a temporal disconnect between “Web Design” “attracting visitors,” “Technical problems,” and “too complicated,” “no way I could learn to build a Web site….” THIS is why emerging technologies and tools attract motivated, successful artists but sadly, with that comes the morally bankrupt. Beware of those who now offer “Expert Web Development” and other assistance YOU DON”T NEED.
This is how to sell snake-oil in 2014….feed the fear of society. MY WORDS are as powerful as ever. They offer a means to the truth. Soon we will break down the online treachery that pervades all corners of the Net. You will see how it’s done from the inside and Domains, Servers and soon Actual Names of people who identify an emergent technology with a potential to give untold freedom of expression to the greatest number; human progress in its purest form—and use it for poorly planned and frequently profitless ethically malicious ways to make a few bucks.
To those who would seek to destroy a technology that provides not just an outlet, but a loyal readership I respect and am inspired by loyalty to not only write, but dive head-first into design….as the 4th Estate it will be ME who puts exposes who you are, what you do and how you do it. I can’t stop you, but you can’t stop me. I watch the cops, the criminals, the normies, the freaks. I watch the blithering fool on the corner and the million dollar housewife on Lexapro. I watch the watchers. There is no group, class, business, subject, theory or subject I don’t keep my eye on. You’ve caught the attention of an investigator, software engineer, hustler with not a shred of fear left in him.
“SEO Optimization Consultants” and “WordPress Solution Providers”are on notice…I got a story WIP list a mile long but the more they attack, the higher up they get. I’m here to help others… using WP to help your small business? I can help you….but I’m not tryin to take your money…I mean hey, maybe the trend continues for me and I get noticed by the right person…maybe somebody out there with a big site, magazine, station, podcast, vlog, youtube….maybe the next time the publishing/broadcast business opens up the books…it could be ME that gets straightened out you never know.
Meantime I got a nice big audience to cater to and artistically that’s all I ever wanted. So thank you dear reader you know how I feel…ahhhh fuck it….you’re the reason I write, you motivate me I’m starting to get my life back. Since 2011 I been laid off, my best friend has a brain aneurysm in a church, right in front of the alter, my fiance’ succumbs to cancer and then POW! I black out, I’m losin’ my mind, I end up in jail…I get hit by a car. I don’t even believe this shit as I’m writing I swear it MUST HAVE happened to someone else. NO WAY I survived all of that.
I can walk again. I got all my teeth fixed, I lost a bunch of weight. I makin some money, All up in the club…I’m lookin all smooth…..”I’m Barack Obama. I’m the president. I’m hittin’ that ass!” credit to Leon Black helpin me take today’s post out out with a pop That’s right. Cuz I gets mine!!!!
