Random Thoughts

Hey Bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog for some reason or another. And here lies yet another one of those posts where I find myself attempting to figure out what to blah blog about in order to post content on this blog whenever possible. Kind of like that blah bloggers block maybe. And so some of those random thoughts that I find scribbled on papers lying around that I wanted to get around to blaghing about were “Robot Nation”, the idea that everyone seems to have become on of those technology robots with the invention of all of those high tech gadgets floating around on the subways, trains and other modes of transportation where everyone seems to be fidgeting with at any given moment seemingly in a high tech robotic trance or daze. And “iPhones”, where everyone seems to be playing that Solitaire card game on the subway and maybe even on the computer at home as if in some sort of asolitaireadiction maybe, not sure. What’s that all about in the age on high tech, ten second attention span, gadget everything. And “Cops infiltrate Craigslist for stolen goods and anything over three thousand is a felony?”, So I heard someone say the other day. What’s that all about? And what is the origin of that word cop anyway? And then there was the thought “Homeowners insurance insures firearms.” Hugh? That one could be a whole another blog posting of ranting and raving for me, the idea that one can get paid for having a firearm in their home. Hugh again? And then yet another thought found scribbled down somewhere was “NYC MTA, that City of New York Transit Authority system that could also be known to me as the New York City Metropolitan Torture its passengers with transit officers everywhere Association, that seemingly faceless monster that seems to historically flood its system with more transit officers than passengers, arrests a musician for playing in the subway due to an open ticket for being on a bus somewhere. Hugh? What’s that all about? And how does this MTA compare to SEPTA, BART, and other transit systems throughout planet earth. If only all public transportation were free. No one is free when others are oppressed. And what if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State?

A Blog

It is a New Year on this day that I find my self blogging. It is a different Gregorian calendar year. Another year has passed and another is on it’s way in passing. And it is all a part of father time and that cycle of life of infinity and the order of the universe. You know, that yin, yang thing. And it has been quite a while since I have found myself blah blogging away on Blogger in this web 2.0 social media user generated content world of that internet land blogosphere with seemingly another gazillion bloggers as well. And sometimes as I have blah blogged in times past, I find myself wondering what to blahg about. And how do those other zillion other bloggers do it. How does one maintain a blog and not run out of content for it. Do I post one of those Craigslist “Intern Wanted” ads to help maintain this blog. Do I post on this blog once in a blue moon, or red moon. Do I visit a content for your blog website, and do those exist. Do I hire a million other people to contribute content. Do I recite the letters of the alphabet once a day. What do those other bloggers out there in bloggerworld do in answer of pondering this question. Is there an internet guru for this. And there is that question again, to blog or not to blog, that is the question. And is this one of those 50 Signs You’re A Blogaholic, the idea that I find myself scribbling some sort of random thought onto paper every so often with that phrase “I want to blog that before I forget..” in mind. And from reading that 50 signs you’re a blogaholic list, it looks like number 15 may just be this, the blogger notepad. And I once had great visions that I could blah blog my way to riches and quit those ten full time jobs that I find myself with sometimes, and now it seems as if instead of quitting those ten full time jobs, that instead I just may find myself looking for an eleventh full time job with Uncle Scam, I mean Sam and the economy seeming as if he wants to go out of business and have one of those everything must go sales lately. And so it is a different day and change has come, some sort of change. As the only thing constant is change and some stories do not end as you expect.

This Ode To Blogging

And for some reason I find myself posting that ode to blogging sometimes when I can not figure out what to blah blog about. And that seems like one of those timeless odes. And in other thoughts, I was watching Channel Thirteen the other day, that public broadcasting channel that seems to be the only educational channel to watch on television these days here in this Country in America. And there was a nature program on that was saying something about Australia has a drought problem, its ozone is the worst in the world and that no other continent burns as drastically as Australia. And does this say anything about global warming and helping to save planet mother earth. And among other things on this program, those palm cockatoo parrots seemed to be the most beautiful and intelligent birds. And in other thoughts again, here is that ode to blogging:

An Ode To Blogging(sung to the tune of “Mercedes Benz” by Janis Joplin)

Oh Google, won’t you give me a PageRank quickly?
My friends all have Adsense, but you banned me.
Blogged hard all my lifetime, trying to make money,
So Google, won’t you give me a PageRank quickly?

Oh Shoemoney , won’t give my blog a big plug?
I post every day, but never get Dugg.
I like how you’re bald, but don’t wear a rug,
So oh Shoemoney, won’t you give my blog a big plug?

Oh AGLOCO , won’t you give up your little green scam?
Your members flood my inbox with lots of spam.
You know that I’m not your biggest fan,
Oh AGLOCO, won’t you give up your little green scam?

Bloggers!
Oh Google, won’t you give me a PageRank quickly?
My friends all have Adsense, but you banned me.
Blogged hard all my lifetime, trying to make money,
So Google, won’t you give me a PageRank quickly?

Have a great blogging day.

A Blog Post

And after what seems like decades and centuries of blogging on this blog in that Internet web 2.0 social media user generated content era of technology and inventions, I find myself encountering what seems like blah blog bloggers writers block again as I ask myself, “What do I blah blog about today on this bloggers blog out there in the bloggersworld of a bazallion other blogs?” And sometimes it seems as if I could use one of those Internet gurus to help solve this debacle of finding and maintain content for this blog for some reason. And maybe I could consider hiring one of those Craigslist interns in the writers wanted section, or maybe I could ask a thousand other people to help me maintain this blog. Or maybe I could consult one of those online tutorials about “How to maintain your blog” somewhere out there in the internetland world. Is there a way to magically find content for this blog? And that seems like it could be one of those blogger guru internet questions to be answered to me. And what if I do not post on this blog again for blogger burnout or some other reason and it remains postless. And what’s the purpose or reason for having a blog again, I forget sometimes. And so I find myself posting one of these posts on this blog again on this day that really seems to be about blogging. Have a great blogging day.

The Day of Bastille

And I think I could be finding myself encountering that blah blog bloggers block again as I find myself running out of things to blah blog about again, as it seems as if it has been a while since I blahgged on this blog, maybe. And that question comes to mind again, to blog or not to blog, that is the question. And how do those other bloggers out there in bloggerland find things to write about. And what’s the purpose of having a blog again? Is it to rant and rave or write ones diary online or to ramble thoughts to the web. And what does that word blog mean anyway. And what if I am unable to blah blog on this blog all the time, could I hire a thousand other bloggers to help me maintain and blog on this blog. Maybe I should consider posting one of those ‘Bloggers wanted’ ads online for this blog, maybe. And in other thoughts, it’s another holiday coming up again soon, or some sort of unofficial non state mandated day to be observed called Bastille Day. And I blogged about that holiday before last year, as this blog seems as if it wants to repeat itself sometimes with the same holiday, different year, and I thought to repost that posting because hey, it’s less writing sometimes:

No one is free while others are oppressed. Did you know that July 14th is Bastille Day? Maybe you do. If you do not know it already, Bastille Day is a national French holiday whose anniversary is celebrated each year with festivities commemorating the storming of the Bastille prison in Paris, France in 1789 which marked the beginning of the French Revolution. This prison symbolizes freedom for all. There will be lots of Bastille day events and parties, food and fun here in America also. And if the thought does not scare you, break the silence and remember the psychiatric prisoners. Psychiatry Kills. Mad Pride celebrates the human rights of people considered different by our society. It may be celebrated anytime but is most often observed in the month of July, usually on or around July 14, Bastille Day. 2007 marks the 26th anniversary of psychiatric survivors using Bastille Day to celebrate Mad Pride. The tradition of using Bastille Day as Mad Pride Day was started in New York by the Mental Patients Liberation Alliance and has since spread around the world. When the Bastille was stormed, two prisoners with psychiatric labels being detained there for that reason were freed. Mad Pride celebrations have grown directly out of an historic but little known international social change movement led by psychiatric survivors and mental health consumers that began in about 1970. MindFreedom International is one of the groups in this movement. The name Mad Pride got its start in London when activists there saw a Gay Pride event and got madly inspired. Mad Pride is not only for psychiatric survivors, it is open to all, whether or not you have been labeled by the psychiatric, psych-cia-trick system. Mad Pride is really about Human Pride. Do not allow our very humanity to be done in by a corporate mental health (death) system that has gone out of control. Stigmatize yourself with pride, celebrate mad pride. To find out more about Mad Pride events in your area visit Mind Freedom. And what does this have to do with a No Police State? Happy Bastille Day.

Twitter

Hey Bloggers, oh gee. I have just found myself stumbling across yet another website to become addicted to in my blogaholicness of the seemingly never ending social media websites to visit. And as if MyBlogLog, YouTube, MySpace, SocialSpark aren’t enough to keep one busy in webaholicness already. And the list of social media websites out there in the webasphere goes on and on. And I came across Twitter from my Social Sparkaholicness, as they are one of the many bazillion and seemingly zillions of Twitter users. And so I wondered what Twitter was and is, as I see their website listed everywhere on the internet every so often. And now I have found out and I have found myself myself Twittering as npsgirl non stop, or at least until I stop, attempting to follow practically every user on their website for every name and noun I can think of in the universe and world for the past hour and this blogaholicness may go on till evermore or something like that, as their website seems never ending. Is this one of those 50 signs you’re a blogaholic? And Twitter is a free service that lets you keep in touch with people using the web, your phone, or IM. Join today to start receiving npsgirl’s and everyone else you can think of’s updates. Have a Great Twitter day.

Good Friday

Hey bloggers, gee, I took a look at the date of the last posting I did on this blog and it looks like it was a few days ago. And I try to attempt to blah blog away as much as I can in my blogaholicness, and then there is real life versus the virtual world. And then there is also that other blog I attempted to start last week, yet another one of those No Police State Girl blogs. And I wonder if maybe I should try and think up a different name for those blogs already. And it seems as if it is that page rank thing that sent me there to looking for another blog anyway. And when it seems as if the world is falling down around me, I still find myself blah blogging away. And yesterday in the world on that day, the Gregorian calendar, and the advertisements say this day yesterday, was Good Friday, or maybe God’s Friday. I am not exactly sure what Good Friday is all about, maybe Wikipedia has an answer for that, but I gather it is some sort of religious holiday having to do with God and and fasting that leads up to Easter. And it is holy week this week, where praise to God and Jesus and his crucifixion could be given, whoever God may be. And what the heck does Easter have to do with eggs and bunnies anyway. Is that a spring, multiply, reproduce and be fruitful thing. And then there is Passover, isn’t that another religious holiday a month away for God. I should watch that Ten Commandments movie again, it is really educational to watch when one is too lazy to read the bible. Have a great holy week.

Hey Bloggers

Hey bloggers, today this blog as well as the Internet blogosphere and those page rank updates or up downs make me wonder whether to blog or not to blog in the internet get rick quick blog your way to riches blogosphere. And so today’s postings are about to blog, on this blog again. And now on my other blog, that I got as an alternative to this blog, I am wondering whether to blog on that blog. And of course this all confuses me, as well as listening to the news of the economy going down the drain and the stock market going all over the place and the United states dollar falling all of the place, it makes me wonder about the recession, depression and is this all related.
