After pointing out so eloquently that this writer was a “typical pretentious trumpet” (yes you read that correct dear reader, he think I’m a small-bore-earthworm-shooter!) Doug-E-Fresh would roll over in his grave. *Aaaaaaaaanywayz……*
A GS of his name revealed the commonly-named man had died in a freakish homo-erotic asphyxiation incident a few years back.1 For those who don’t know, I refer you to the TV show “Six Feet Under” starring Michael C. Hall. Whom this writer met (name drop alert) at a Ralphs near Hollywood & Highland. Myself and my lady-friend were absolutely starstruck.
Picture your fav TV show. Burn Notice, Mr. Robot, Better Call Saul, Big Little Lies, Orange is the new Black…..then picture yourself in line behind them at RALPHS. What do you say/do? Nothing? Well dear reader I could not. After he paid for his goods; I got his attention;
“Excuse m-m-m-me, Michael?”
“I just wanted to tell you [remember this is ca. 2006-7] that “Dexter” is BY FAR the most well-written, well directed and produced series on television right now. My friend and I wait with baited breathe for the debut of each and every next episode. We watch it live whenever it airs.”
[surprisingly, he said] “:You know, not many people take the time to come up to me and say that…I work hard at what I do, what you just said means a lot….thank you”
1 notice. The story about MCH is real; the death of B. Gainer is not. It is as Mr. T would have it “fake news” you want fake? Ill spooned it to you; but it will be appropriately labeled as Editorial.
That is all; I could use your help so plz visit a link below. Are you BG? Take the SoCal Pick Challenge for enemies of the publication. 1)Get AIDs 2)Die 3)there is no step 3; rat. 1&2 till complete; thank you and merci beaucoup. -

Mozilla is really making an easy task OVERLY difficult!…A minor security flaw… Forgive me, My custom tailored advertising script that caters to mobile devices specifically is failing …either no I buried it in an old post or it’s not working…0% coverage so is included below:
Mozilla is absolutely awful…. their forums lead to NO REAL ANSWERS——threads say “Solved!”
bullshit “SOLVED”!!! They always say how they’re the fastest and best and most thoroughly tested…there is NOBODY in the tech industry more full of shit than a Mozilla WebDev….one comment on the forums said he knows “lots of WebDevs who work for Mozilla but they tell people they are private consultants….trust me it’s not a badge of honor to say you design software fora company even worse than Microsoft!*
Need to determine if it’s possible on FF or if Chrome or IE can do it…I prefer chrome but I initially couldn’t open any example APIs if chrome was set to default. Internet Exploder didn’t even load…but several web searches indicate FF is the ONLY browser capable of running JDK and JTMP (click-to-play)
Ed’s note: I SO DON”T CARE NOW….Mozilla really is awful though!

Anyone or anything I trash publicly also has an equal opportunity for my praise.
One of the most elegant, moving cover-songs/videos ever made is no longer publicly available.
David Bowie licensed the song to Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield to create a music video while aboard the International Space Station.
Hadfield recorded the audio down here on earth before he was rocketed into space, where he spent most of his time….monitoring systems. ….he knew there’d be a lot of downtime.
Scientists/Astronauts are afforded a unique opportunity on the ISS, but also conduct long-range studies in zero-gravity. Frequently there are precious few people aboard the ISS and all of them are deeply enmeshed in mission critical systems, maintenance and research. It is said to be a “beautiful prison.” “desperately lonely.” …it’s also time for valueble research and a lot of thinking. Where else can you get a look at “the big picture” than from space? It’s a perspective we can understand, but never comprehend.
Hatfield turned downtime into value using cutting edge visualization of zero-gravity, time-lapse photography of orbits around the earth at nightfall and expert music performance/recording a cover of “Space Oddity” on acoustic guitar with small sound-bed’s from Bowies’ original track (like the count down 10….9…..8…..7….6…….) with a lilting, mournful piano and a balanced drum-kit....it is heartbreakingly beautiful.
The resulting combination of technical imaging and artistic expression was posted to YouTube. Views grew geometrically-with web-users sharing the video across Facebook, twitter, Google, and other platforms. …taken down just recently, it had over 22 million views.
Not exactly “Gangnam Style” but a remarkable success in North America for reminding us of the nostalgia of our shared past, and technical-audio-visual capabilities of our present. Hadfield’s expertise in engineering and music breathed life and energy into space exploration in a creative way.
This clip has the audio, and carefully altered video to keep it from the notice of Youtube….the author interlaced most of the video with b-roll from “Gravity”***(see my footer on security, fair use and legal protection you’re covered by IF you access relevant audio/visual HERE. I do NOT recommend searching for a pirated copy it may contain malware, or you could be flagged by your ISP, clients could put their server at risk. This site is the only safe place to hear the audio and view clips of the video please give it a listen before it gets pulled… Hadfied’s cover is gorgeous but the visual-component has only about 5% of the of the actual video, Bowie’s count-down intro is removed and replaced. It has 4000 views, but these and others like it will trend and get blocked soon so please enjoy, especially if you’ve never heard it….this may be your last chance— as for the complete, historic, viral inspirational video? we may never see it again. WATCH/LISTEN BEFORE THIS VIDEO IS PULLED. CHRIS HADFIELD IS NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO PERFORM THIS SONG UNLESS BOWIE MODIFIES THE LICENSE HE GAVE TO HADFIELD. THIS COULD BE YOUR LAST CHANCE TO EVER HEAR IT OR SEE VIDEO LOOSELY RELEVANT TO HIS PROJECT.
In Bowie’s original song, The beauty, isolation and concern for the safety of “Major Tom” by “Ground Control” highlighted the societal fascination and fear with space travel, the inherent beauty of NASA , and The Apollo Missions– it’s subsequent technology and massive contributions to education, machines and electronic of every kind. The microprocessor, digital technology, major progress in materials engineering and household products of all kinds
….by-products of technologies The Apollo Program required to put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the Moon.
By 2011, The Obama Administration retired the space exploration program indefinitely…with “hopes to restart it” at an unknown later time.
Even Nasa’s Blog expressed the sadness felt by a generation of scientists, inspired by the space program and given the case to sustain it forever by Carl Sagan.
This writer cried when that shuttle came down. Americans cannot get into space without “3rd-partyshuttle services” provided by constituent governments involved with the ISS. I thought about Carl’s hopes and dreams about our future. Carl is kind of spiritual father to me….he died in 1996. In 2011 I thought “Carl would be deeply saddened. Profoundly…” I knew the moment the last shuttle landed it would break his heart. It subsequently broke mine.
As of September 28th, 2014… Americans must “hitch a ride” from other nations in order to access space. There is still no discussion in the legislature or executive to even consider bringing it back.
Hadfield is Canadian, but was no less effected by the dawn of the 70s Space Age...when kids thought “science was cool” and if you asked any child of the 70s what he wanted to be he grew up, “I wanna be an Astronauts, just Like Neil Armstrong [or Buzz Aldrin]”
It was the first thing since that tragic day in mid-2011 to give me hope for the future of space exploration. We humans seek the unknown by nature, we learn…there is nothing left to see on the earth or the moon and robotic craft like Voyager I and II mapped most of the solar system…..but as of today there is still no official program to send humans to Mars, though it has been proven there could be an American station base ON Mars BY 2020 if the gov’t would fund it.
The administration said a shuttle progran is “too expensive” and “wasteful in a depressed economy” When in fact; sending 5-10 Americans to Mars to establish a functioning colony would show massive ROI across the American landscape. PBS artist Melody Sheep uses auto-tune to mix catchy beats with scientific/cultural media. His “case for Mars” sums it up better than my prose:
Bowie licensed “Space Oddity” to Hadfield for 1 year with options to renew. The reasons are unknown why Bowie cancelled the renewal. Perhaps it will appear as an iTunes/amazon download……perhaps he isn’t making the money he feels is deserved for his contribution to this viral project….and his timeless track that inspired it’s initiation.
As a human being though, he is harming the inspirational nature of Hadfield’s project, it’s ability and contribution to moving society away from war, terror and fear and back into innovation, creativity, exploration and peaceful solutions.
When Obama cited financial concerns” regarding space explorations, saying the “program is to be placed on hold indefinitely,” Noted Theoretical Physicist Neil Degrasse Tyson said on “Real-Time with Bill-Maher” avail: HBO/HBO-GO that “The defense department has spent $14-trillion since the Afghanistan-campaign began,” $14-trillion, if stacked in $100 bills beginning on the floor would reach from here to VENUS”” (!!!) The cost to maintain a small fleet of space shuttles, an adequate secure-base, ground control, systems maintenance and process validation, fuel etc….it could all be maintained at Vandenberg Air Force Base or Edwards Air Force Base in California…..or The Kennedy Space Center in Florida, or other staging/deployment zones w/in the US for less than 1 percent of what we spend to kill “brown people”
Afghanistan is where Lithium is mined. Lithium is needed in batteries, computers, medicine and all sorts of electronic and mechanical infrastructure. It’s a vital resource. I must also note that 90 percent of the opium is grown and harvested in and around Afghanistan. KBR has been wanting to build an oil pipeline running directly through Afghanistan—>That’s probably unrelated….KBR’s subsidiary Halliburton wouldn’t drain $1 trillion a year from taxpayers just to build a pipeline, would they? hmmmmmm…. Afghanistan has important, valuable natural resources….it would make far more sense to spend all those trillions on R&D – which would include a sustainable colony on Mars as opposed to military and military contractor work. After all…once those resources we need so bad are stripped clean, what would we do then? There are other sources of energy than Litium and oil, Likewise we have synthetic painkillers ever stronger that opiate derivatives. Getting back to research and creativity isn’t just the right thing to do, it a better business strategy.

Enjoy your Sunday! If you’ve taken and intertest in the first three installments of “The Cal Poly San Luis Obipo News Archive” I’ll be connecting with more sources and source material you won’t find in traditional media. My intent is to document the hard news stories that have been buried. Bring the stories back to life, show responsibility and respect for the families of the victims and remind the university that they may operate above the law inside their isolated system, they may also manipulate local law enforcement…but they do not operate above ME. UC Berkeley is in deep trouble for the same thing. Again, I’m not investigating my alma mater to grow this site. It’s the RIGHT THING TO DO and the surge in traffic is a by-product of that. -Tapper7.com – unfiltered truth since January 2014.
What makes this Web page legitimate? Should you trust what you read on this site?
NO!!!! Don’t trust any blog site. In general there are common themes in blogs that are yellow-flags(read but don’t trust), red-flags(main page offers the best product/service EVER at a LOW LOW price, and …blackhat blogs that will attempt to use scripting to take over your computer entirely. If it is a business website they will attempt to strip SSN, Bank routing numbers, credit card numbers, PINS and bleed you dry. There are poorly made attempts at this in the eastern world. There are people who can hack into your BANK (your bank is more more secure than any government agency)…they can still get in.
Don’t even bother…I have everything you need to know if you are seeking approval from Google Adsense, WHY I applied and a primer on responsible ad placement and usage from a professional journalists standpoint who is also brand new to “professional blogging” as opposed to my previous iterations of blogspot.com personal journals I that are still I keep only as archive material to be picked clean for your information and amusement at which time I will index them from the web myself.
There is a metric that gives you a little insight into legitimacy. tested:
****Tapper7.com rates slightly above average with search engines…it’s how most of you found the site. (thank you for going to page 3, 4 ,5 to find me unless you were looking for “Tapper” or “Tapper7” in which case it will be easier to bookmark it in some way, just take a sharpie and draw it on the drywall.
It has been tested for quality of design and multi-platform functionality by the me obsessively and by several 3rd parties at the client, server and at the reader (user) level. I’m uclear on how to properly state that I’m approved by the Google Adsense program and what it means about me, the site and you. I will try though. I could locate only a handful of requirements offered upon application from the company – and all 3rd party info is shameful attempts to bypass and ruin a system that is certain to become even more exclusive than it was….I should have waited …but im glad I did not, it could easily go on 100% lockdown at anytime now.
If yours is legit—submit it now.
Most blogs are not accepted into this program. They are dedicated to illegal downloads, pirating, compromising online security…..etc. The name and descriptors/categories and other tags do not match the content. Many sites function only as spam-bots. They index every site possible to back link to themselves, appear to have tons of traffic increase their search engine rank and try to scam advertisers or sell a worthless site whose real value is 0 or less than 0. This led to the recent “has verified owner actively posted content for over 6 months?”-TEST.
Malicious sites from China and India are flagged for this, but the rule applies to all domains now.
Here are some metrics Google used to audit this site:
Is documentation avail. proving author-ownership of the site?
Is there is easy to contact The Webmaster of Tapper7.com?
Is his name, address, email, age verifiable?
Does this site meet design standards?
Is the content and design w3c compliant?
Is the site growing? Does the site meet a minimum standard of audience size?
What is the ratio of new vistor/returning visitor?
how many pages do they visit?
how long do they stay?
Is it easy to navigate?
Is content structured by category? does content match these categories?
Is there a sub-index of tags for quick-access to other subjects in the posts?
Is it structured in abstraction layers making it easy to index?
Is a standard format used?
does the code he used indicate an working knowledge of communications via the Web?
Is the author’s really written by the stated author?
All of the above can be verified by a big-ass algorithm and processing power. In the spirit of being honest with my audience, I added a metatag to the site that IDs it as “Mature Content,” I deal with mature themes like violence, murder, rape, drugs, and I have a tendency to veer into jokes that are in poor taste, are offensive, contain racism or misogyny…everyone gets bashed EQUALLY. No one is safe from my jokes or my criticism. It’s all clearly labeled up front in my visible text and embedded so your browser can see it. Parents can set any browser to exclude my site because I tagged it as “Mature”—-Google will not approve “Adult” sites…by that they mean sites that publish pornography.. I didn’t look up any of these rules. I submitted my site for the highest level of validation available on the internet….it was approved by an extremely complex algorithm that everyone else claims to understand. I don’t understand it myself—-> but I can deduce most of what data it vacuums up, how it process the data and the parameters and probability of APPROVED vs. CHANGE & RESUBMIT. I don’t know how long it takes if you aren’t approved on the first try – I believe it is three months. (???) The probability of a random blog being approved is <1% or maybe zero. A completely legit site …probably better than mine in every way..will not violate the written rules, but nobody has the real algorithm – if they did it would be OBS w/in a week
Ethically I have a duty to tell you that I’ve enabled Google to post advertisements on this page and others. I clearly label every section that I allocated ad space to per SPJ code of ethics. ads are allegedly targeted to the demographics of what I post and who reads it. Most readers are educated, lower-middle to upper class, open-minded, interested in technology, always learning, tolerant and intelligent….w/o those qualities you wouldn’t “get” this site. 3rd parties I’ve allowed to post ads are carefully screened by Google…are they as legitimate? SHIT – BEATS ME! They are safe though. to be on my site…some of the pages load a tad slower, ill be ill be working on that to improve the experience for everyone associated with Taaper7.com.
In addition to class, readers predominately reside in LA/OC, the Bay Area, Chicago and New York. Without specifying company names- I noted a specific brand of a major American car company, a high-technology certification program located where many of you live, a brand new high-end-mobile phone, an expensdive men’s clothing line, a post-graduate software engineering certification, a master’s degree Accounting program and an MBA program. It confirms what I had always assumed was true of MOST readers.My target demographic.
