My Bitchute channel

After deciding to post some of my experiential videos online to see where it goes, I tried YouTube and Vimeo, getting no views after days and days; I tried Bitchute, and the views started almost immediately.

Trevor Dailey's Bitchute Channel

P.S. I would also like to recommend these Bitchute channels that I enjoy (in no particular order).

Computing Forever is a channel dedicated to talking about Technology & Social Commentaries. You'll find tech reviews, discussions about politics, future technology, gaming Top 10s, vlogs and criticisms of social justice, political correctness and hyper consumerism. I approach my content with a critical eye and a skeptical mind.

Never Give a Sucker an Even Break: Diner Scene

There is a joke made about high blood pressure in this film that may be confusing to audiences today. I do not know if I understand it completely, but I think I do get the joke: "high" means expensive, and "dough" means money.

I have not been able to determine what W.C. Fields says right after  he says, "Good morning, beautiful".

Comedy

Can you play bass guitar?

Sure, I can. It only has four strings, right? How hard can that be?

Come on! Would you wake up!

If you want me to wake up then you buy me a cup of coffee!

You don’t drink coffee!

I’ll start now!

Mail Puzzled Residents

The mail room in my apartment frequently has mail left out in the open by some residents who do not know what to do with mail they have received that is addressed correctly, but has someone else's name on it. This is common when a resident moves and does not make sure their mail is sent to their new address. From what I gather, some people seem to think that if they leave the mail out, the Canada Post carrier will take the mail back. This is not what will happen.    

Being the person I am, I went to the Canada Post website to learn what to do with mail that is delivered to a previous or unknown resident. Having too much spare time, I took the information I found, edited it slightly, and printed it. With the printed noticed and a stapler, I stapled the notice to the cork bulletin board in the mailroom. The instructions are very simple.

Mail is being sent to the wrong address. 
What can I do?

If you receive someone else’s mail, or if someone else receives yours, there are a few steps you can take to resolve the problem. 

What you can do:

If the letter is addressed correctly, but the recipient is not at your address:

Contact the sender. Inform them of the error so they can update their mailing information.

Cross out the address. Write 'Moved' or 'Unknown' and deposit the item into the Mail slot of the Canada Post Parcel Locker, or deposit the item into a Street Letter Box. 

If you include a forwarding address, it will require additional postage.

You might continue to receive a previous resident's mail until senders are notified of a move. 

Note: Canada Post is required by law to deliver mail to the address on the envelope. 

Mail continues to pile up in the mail room. A letter from the Government Of Canada, that likely contains personal information, is stuck on the board directly below my notice. 

Can these people who leave the mail out not read? Can they not follow simple instructions? Are people really this stupid?

Perhaps the answer to all of the above questions is 'yes'.

My First Comicon

The Forest City Comicon 2015 is in the books, and indications are it was a big success. There is no doubt in my mind that the attendance of the 2015 event surpassed the 2,300 people who attended the first annual 2014 event. This was my first time attending an event of this kind, and it was very fun and interesting. 

I attended as a volunteer photographer for one of the event organizers. It turned out to be a great chance to learn. The count on my photographs was around 800, and most of those did not turn out they way I wanted them to. There were many issues and problems, but I was able to take enough good photos. This is called learning by doing. 

The guests whom I heard speak, as I took photos, were all interesting even though I had never heard of these people before. It was a great time for me to learn, and I did come away knowing a few things about acting, and cosplay. I think I could have done it all again the next day, or I had enough fun to want to do it again the next day. I really liked seeing other people having so much fun together, and the creativity in the costumes, some were amazing.  

It is my hope that I will be able to return to the Forest City Comicon in 2016. I have a full year to practice my photography, and learn more about 'cons, and cosplay.

That Way Madness Goes This Way Madness Comes

Living Downtown, I have encountered so many mentally ill people that they all just blend into the background. They are just the "local colour". Never have I met one that I felt was dangerous, or one who was violent. One or two have been a little aggressive verbally, but nothing serious. Just recently, one mentally ill person has gotten my attention.

This person has been around for a while, but I never noticed him until I saw and heard him more. He frequently comes around my apartment building, and there are times when he does, that I step out onto my balcony, and I observe him across the street.

This young man looks like he could have been in a '80s Heavy Metal band. He has that similar look, long hair, and skinny. He has personal battles he fights everyday. He may have schizophrenia or psychosis, but I am not the one to say. 

My description of him in this state would be an actor randomly speaking lines from a variety of plays. It is mostly disjointed speech. He might see things, I am not certain. There are names of people he speaks. Sometimes he talks to them, sometimes he talks about them. Scraps of what I heard him say might be revealing who he is, or at least, who he was. He voice is always raspy when he is alone, but I have witnessed him speaking with a young woman once who seemingly knows him, and his voice is clear, strong, and pleasant sounding. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. 

His ramblings can go on for hours at a time, and he comes and goes as he pleases. I had thought about video recording him, but I changed my mind. I have decided just to listen from my balcony, observe from a distance, as this young man leaves his recordings in my memory.

In about one week, the Forest City Comicon 2015 will be here at the London Convention Centre. This is not very far from where I see this young man. At the London Convention Centre there will be thousands of comicon fans, many dressed in costumes as fictional characters. A world of make believe and fantasy these people can step into and out of at will. And there will be this young man who may have no control over being in reality or in a world that isn't real.

The Cat only grinned when it saw Alice. It looked good- natured, she thought: still it had VERY long claws and a great many teeth, so she felt that it ought to be treated with respect.

`Cheshire Puss,' she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. `Come, it's pleased so far,' thought Alice, and she went on. `Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'

`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.

`I don't much care where--' said Alice.

`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.

`--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.

`Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'

Alice felt that this could not be denied, so she tried another question. `What sort of people live about here?'

`In THAT direction,' the Cat said, waving its right paw round, `lives a Hatter: and in THAT direction,' waving the other paw, `lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad.'

`But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.

`Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

`How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

`You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'

Just Right Off Air (Temporarily?)

When I tuned into the radio station this week to listen to my favourite over-the-air radio broadcast, something seemed odd to me almost from the start. Just Right always begins with some audio clip to introduced the first topic of the show, but this "clip" went on for more than 5 minutes. It was then that confusion set in, and I tried to figure out why Just Right was not being broadcast, and why another radio broadcast had taken its place.

Later that day, I went to the Just Right website for an answer. To my surprise, and added confusion, the Just Right show that had not been broadcast on the radio was on the site available for download. I opened iTunes on my computer, and this latest episode of Just Right was downloaded via my Just Right iTunes subscription. Listening to the show, there was a vague explanation from show host, Bob Metz, regarding Just Right not being broadcast on 94.9 FM.

CHRW Radio, 94.9 FM, that is a radio station broadcast from Western University, has removed Just Right from its programming for "six weeks" pending a "review" of its "policy on spoken word shows". In Canada, we have an anti-freedom communist type of system that regulates all Canadian radio and television broadcasts under the authority of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), so I suspect the CRTC may be involved in this CHRW decision. Listen to Just Right #126, November 5, 2009, with CHRW Radio guests, Michael Brown and Alicks Girowski for more information on radio broadcasting and the CRTC. 

The full story has not come out yet, so I am hopeful that in the next six weeks I will learn more about this abrupt removal of Just Right from the CHRW Radio airwaves. Meanwhile, I am certain Just Right will carry on in podcast form.

UPDATE: Just Right has been suspended indefinately from CHRW 94.9 FM, but has moved to short-wave radio and online podcasts.

Just Right short-wave radio schedule:

WBCQ, 5130 KHz, Thursdays at 0100 UTC.

Channel 292, 6070 KHz, Thursdays at 2100 UTC.

Rediscovering My Old Garmin GPS Device

My old Garmin eTrex Legend Cx GPS device still works after owning it for a number of years. It would get turned on once in a while, but I didn't use it anymore having moved on to more modern GPS devices. That was until a couple of days ago when I took it out during my last photo walk.

At first, it took some time to acquire satellites, but once it did, it performed flawlessly. I had forgotten how easy it was to use. I have a optional detailed street map installed on it so it worked well around the city, but it is designed for hiking, hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities. I purchased it for its small size, portability, and optional street navigation because I needed a GPS device to help me navigate around the city when I worked a certain job.

A few of the good things about it is extremely rugged and weather proof. I think it can be submerged in water and still work, but I will need to confirm that before I try it. It fits well into my hand, and I find I am able to easily use it either with my right or left hand. The screen is not large by the standards of today, but I have no difficulty viewing the screen. Data can be transferred back and forth from a computer and the device. Because the unit is old, it contains many "points of interest" that no longer exist in the city, so I find it of interest in learning where thing used to be, like old businesses.

A few bad things about it are the black rubber band around the edge of the device that covers all the control buttons has terrible glue, and most of it has detached from the device. This is a design flaw of the all of the units I have learned. Map updates are do not exist, so I have to use an outdated street map. This isn't a real problem most of the time, but having an updated map is always a good idea. The base map that came with the unit is similar to a provincial road map, and will always be up to date as it will not change for many years. Connecting the device to the computer and getting everything I needed updated was a real problem. I had to download this and that from the Garmin website, and all I wanted to to was delete one of two maps from the device. I finally succeeded after about an hour of frustration.

Overall, I think my discontinued Garmin eTrek Legend Cx has been a great tool for what I have wanted it to do. If they were still made, I would buy another one if the one I have eventually wears out. I will continue to use it for years more.

Braces For My Teeth: Bottom Braces Installed

Today, my orthodontic braces were placed on my bottom teeth. Unlike the top teeth, this took less than one hour. Perhaps approximately 30 minutes. Two different people this time, one being the Doctor, and the other being an experienced hygienist. I think that made the difference.

A new hygienist, just out of school, was invited to watch some of the placements, examine and use my moulds as an educational tool, and ask questions. She called me "sir". I always laugh a little when most people call me that, especially people likely half my age. I don't know why, I just find it humorous to be called "sir" sometimes.

Eating is back to being somewhat of a problem again. My back teeth do not touch when I bite. This will improve in a week or two as my teeth start to move. More soft foods that I really do not like much.

The exciting part is my top teeth have moved noticeably in the past month, and that is what I had to wait for before the braces could be placed on my bottom teeth. I can feel and see the movement of my top teeth. It is slight, of course, but my teeth are very slowly moving into proper positions. The wire on the bottom of my teeth is the lightest, and from there, stronger wire will replace the light wire in time.

How long my treatment will be is uncertain at this time, but I expect it to be long. That is not a problem. I am looking forward to my new smile; not being afraid to smile. I can't say enough good things about the dentist and the staff, and the excellent treatment I have received.
