It's not about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

Nawlins napsters rant -- 5 April 2017



Today I discuss the rise of the strikeouts in the modern era amongst other random thoughts.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

By the way, this daily show, "The Baseball Show" is really awesome. I have been checking them out this year everyday. One of them has the interesting name of Lifshitz. Exactly. His first name is Ralph. He's from Massachusetts and is a really good analyst. His cohort Andy Singleton (from NYC) is equally awesome.

Anyway, check this out.

Nawlins Napsters Rant #3



Don't sleep on the Milwaukee Brewers this year y'all. Up and down the lineup -- and even on the bench. The pitching staff isn't all that bad either. Defense might be an issue however.

My new Baseball Rant



This is starting to get fun. I would like to add imported pictures, video, and stats to my comments, but that takes time. I got the skills and the software, but again, culling the various data and using the video software is time consuming. In general, assume 5 minutes of raw video takes 20 minutes of back ground work, depending upon the amount of addition. And the time it takes to process is not insignificant either, except that when you are processing you don't have to be engaged. The process is quicker once you set up templates, but you still have to cull and organize what you put in the placeholders.

But that is my eventual goal. For now, I am satisfied with the raw unedited video footage of myself mouthing off about baseball. My second love. :-)

By the way, Youtube has gotten a lot better with their upload user interface. OMG it used to be a pain as those of you who know will attest. Now, you just open the upload dialogue, drag and drop, and type in the words and preferences while the video uploads. The new video manager window is also now tremendously awesome and very easy to navigate. Thanks Youtube-Google.

Napster's Fantasy Baseball Rant

Alright y'all, I want to start making video's of me discussing baseball and fantasy baseball related topics. I will try to do this daily or at least a few times a week for the next 26 weeks. That is my goal.

Working yourself to death is soooooo cool


It does require a fairly dystopian strain of doublethink for a company to celebrate how hard and how constantly its employees must work to make a living, given that these companies are themselves setting the terms. And yet this type of faux-inspirational tale has been appearing more lately, both in corporate advertising and in the news. Fiverr, an online freelance marketplace that promotes itself as being for “the lean entrepreneur”—as its name suggests, services advertised on Fiverr can be purchased for as low as five dollars—recently attracted ire for an ad campaign called “In Doers We Trust.” One ad, prominently displayed on some New York City subway cars, features a woman staring at the camera with a look of blank determination. “You eat a coffee for lunch,” the ad proclaims. “You follow through on your follow through. Sleep deprivation is your drug of choice. You might be a doer.”

Fiverr, which had raised a hundred and ten million dollars in venture capital by November, 2015, has more about the “In Doers We Trust” campaign on its Web site. In one video, a peppy female voice-over urges “doers” to “always be available,” to think about beating “the trust-fund kids,” and to pitch themselves to everyone they see, including their dentist. A Fiverr press release about “In Doers We Trust” states, “The campaign positions Fiverr to seize today’s emerging zeitgeist of entrepreneurial flexibility, rapid experimentation, and doing more with less. It pushes against bureaucratic overthinking, analysis-paralysis, and excessive whiteboarding.” This is the jargon through which the essentially cannibalistic nature of the gig economy is dressed up as an aesthetic. No one wants to eat coffee for lunch or go on a bender of sleep deprivation—or answer a call from a client while having sex, as recommended in the video. It’s a stretch to feel cheerful at all about the Fiverr marketplace, perusing the thousands of listings of people who will record any song, make any happy-birthday video, or design any book cover for five dollars. I’d guess that plenty of the people who advertise services on Fiverr would accept some “whiteboarding” in exchange for employer-sponsored health insurance.

At the root of this is the American obsession with self-reliance, which makes it more acceptable to applaud an individual for working himself to death than to argue that an individual working himself to death is evidence of a flawed economic system. The contrast between the gig economy’s rhetoric (everyone is always connecting, having fun, and killing it!) and the conditions that allow it to exist (a lack of dependable employment that pays a living wage) makes this kink in our thinking especially clear. Human-interest stories about the beauty of some person standing up to the punishments of late capitalism are regular features in the news, too. I’ve come to detest the local-news set piece about the man who walks ten or eleven or twelve miles to work—a story that’s been filed from Oxford, Alabama; from Detroit, Michigan; from Plano, Texas. The story is always written as a tearjerker, with praise for the person’s uncomplaining attitude; a car is usually donated to the subject in the end. Never mentioned or even implied is the shamefulness of a job that doesn’t permit a worker to afford his own commute.

There’s a painful distance between the chipper narratives surrounding labor and success in America and the lived experience of workers.

Hail the psuedo-hero who genuflects to the chiseled and enhanced stereotype. Worshiping these survivors of the post New Deal working class is getting ludicrous.

Hello. Prostitutes and gang members are also "entrepreneurs" . If you don't perceive the aggregate health of the overall economic system, then you describe the deterioration as something that is beneficial to your own paradigm. Thus desperate people clinging to the erratic social system as best they deem or find possible, are called "entrepreneurs" rather than desperate survivors trying to make ends meet as best their individual lives can provide within their mindset or circumstances.
