  2. Liking Nicki Minaj in the article make a false argument. Instagram is not getting rid of likes, they are getting rid of publicizing likes. Sequentially, people will click like but the count will not be visible to anyone but users. This will have a number of automatic effects, some sponsors will change their patterns or who they invest in. The inability of common epeople to view likes influences popularity online. I know this for sure, that likes leads likes. So, not publicizing them will influence the bots and other mechanisms. The stated goal of instagram is to depressure instagram, a website designed for nothing else but pressure. What is instagram/twitter, these are not websites of community or conversation or in depth community, these websites are all about rapid wild populairty. Based on gimmick or passion shots, that can not change by deleting likes and if anything will add pressure to have some visible form of acceptance in replace of likes https://www.elle.com/culture/celebrities/a29750920/nicki-minaj-instagram-boycot-remove-likes/

  4. I remember when the end of the Game Of Thrones T.V. show debate was dominated by talks of the t.v. show Daenarys Targaryen being < place word defined as a negative mental state > when she obliterated Kings Landing /Cerci after she had won the war. Many viewers, most from the usa, found the Khaleesi's actions unwarranted. I suggested they were not unwarranted. First, war is not about right or wrong or knowledge or lack of knowlege < innocence> , it is about survival. Tyrion's pleading is unwarrantedto Jon. And Jon's doubt is correct. In the end, Jon from the television show didn't kill Daenarys for the seven kingdom's he did it cause he didn't want any more part of the life of war that daenerys was on. He was selfish and in that broke all the honor he deemed he wanted in the book or t.v. show. No matter your stance to my position, another instance similar to daenerys occurred in the japanese animation Black CLover. Where Ligt, the leader of a group called, the eye of the midnight son, used his power to cover an entire human kingdom with deadly blades. HE was thwarted unlike daenerys but like daenerys his actions are based on past grievances. Yet, the reply to Ligt's actions by fans is not, he is < place the same word defined as a negative mental state for Daenerys > , but he must be stopped. Two key points, first Ligt is male, daenerys is female. Second, ligt failed while daenerys succeeded. But the question remain, barring fanbase size variance, do you consider Ligt similar to Daenery Targaryen?
  5. In honor of Coming To America 2 I wish to introduce the bootleg album cover to the first Sexual Chocolate Album entitled, The Comeback Of Sexual Chocolate. In honor of the album coming out, I offer the many fans of the group and its perennially poignant bandleader Randy Watson, an opportunity to guess the title to the nine tracks. Just copy and paste the text below and place your guesses, whether they are original or covers that is your guess I am not telling. The new Album is coming 2020... A bonus track is from Randy Watson a capella entitled: Thank you for the final words Reverend Brown The Comeback Of Sexual Chocolate 1. [track title] 2. [track title] 3. [track title] 4. [track title] 5. [track title] 6. [track title] 7. [track title] 8. [track title] 9. [track title]
  6. Black Solidarity Day 2019 Black Solidarity day was this past November 1st and nearest three day later, the questions in my mind are simple. What Black community do you want to look at you when you close your eyes for the last time? Can the Black community ,in the U.S.A., ,become solid and more solid while part of a multiculturally chaotic U.S.A.? What is the best example of Black collaborative art excluding music,collaborative defined as two or more Black artists working together?
  7. These photos prove to me a film about positive nazis need to occur, after you read my thoughts and see the photos, do you agree? while those who are jewish or those who fought in the war against nazi germany or their descendents have a personal negativity toward nazi germany. Not every moment in nazi germany for german people was some murder fest or prequel to hatred or anything like that The photos linked below are no other than photos in the southern states in the usa of white children enjoying a hanging. If anything they are better cause the encamped are not present while the glory in the south was to be photographed next to their carnage. when I see photos in the thread below, I think, the modern people en mass forgive the white populace in the american continent for its larger crimes against native americans or blacks while never allow forgiveness for german nazi's smaller crimes against fellow germans What separates this from http://goodizen.com/crowds-gathered-to-witness-the-hanging-of-henry-campbell-he-is-standing-in-the-center-wearing-a-dark-suit-in-lawrenceville-georgia-may-8-1908-505x620/ this https://twitter.com/McKayMSmith/status/1184965620804345856 ?
  8. Is DR Serikawa the special effect of The original Godzilla? Dr. Serikawa in the original godzilla is the special effect, a man of science who destroyed his own studies and died by his own science to not spread it
  9. what is the best representation of a native american warrior in a film? I like buck and the preacher, josie wales, apocalypto, or the white buffalo in the film world, but what is the best native american warrior in a film. I recall the geronimo tv special , but that wasn't a movie house film. Although, I liked the action. I was inspired to ask after seeing this article, native american veterans memorial article https://newsmaven.io/indiancountrytoday/news/video-breaking-ground-on-native-american-veterans-memorial-m4wfJf7RfkqBJlTAPVtqXg/?fbclid=IwAR0sgc51z9cgC4GukuwjLTLgSHNmhoW9I-vhWgfcSN_0jX4JfYxs-BkV01A
  10.

  12. Scorcese stated, MArvel movies are theme parks, not cinema? is scorcese correct? If I am honest, aside some others offline who stated this already, he is correct. I see the modern film industry as a two part creature. One part are films the other part are visual paloozas. MArvel movies or most superhero films are not based on quality but visual effects, in the same way the disney princess movies or live action disney remakes are visuals. the goal when people went to see the lion king wasn't to see a great film, it was to see the lion king in a greater visual spectrum. Same with aladdin or beauty and the beast. Do I personally, go to see any of these films... no. It will take a lot for me to see a film for special effects, but most movie house goers today go for visual effects, not story. they will judge something streamed/cable on story, even though game of thrones has now meant cable/streaming is in the special effects palooza mode for the most part in the future. The problem scorcese isn't admitting is parenting. Most parents in the near past and today, teach their kids the power of glitz. is it shiny! is the constant message. How many adults have i heard say, how does it look? how many people I have communicated with who had problems with a film/show or anything in media cause they felt the art was not glitzy enough. A person's imagination should be able to handle all levels of art. the fact that most statians , as statians drive media sales, are visually based, proves their bad rearing. But scorcese can't do anything about that. so he has to realize, that outside the usa is where quality can trump visuals in the viewership. https://collider.com/martin-scorsese-says-marvel-movies-are-theme-parks-not-cinema/?utm_campaign=collidersocial&utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitter
  13. What will the internet be without usa based firms? I thought about the internet and said to myself. What if I took out every usa based firm on the internet, what will it be? Comprehend, the data storage places for websites or webservices are global in nature, not located in one particular country, this is to provide the illusion of seamlessness. But anyway, if you take out, google/facebook/twitter/yahoo/tumblr/wordpress/instagram even though that is facebook/youtube even though that is google/microsoft one drive/microsoft bing/myspace... took out every single usa based or usa started online firm.. what will the internet be? This question came into my mind after I thought about a black woman I know who owns her own website in ghana, concerning womens sport. Her website made me consider the internet outside the usa, how strong is it? absent usa based websites, a huge vacuum will exists in the internet, as it is today. what say you?
  14. I like buck and the preacher, josie wales, or the white buffalo in the film world, but what is the best native american soldier film.
