TSO 2013

I admit that many don't like TSO aka (say it in rock star voice and manner The Trans-Siberian Orchestra they play over the top and have a story and those stereotypical Hair metal stuff but it is mostly fun... No idea how many or what photos to post it is kinda like a light show in photos they do so much amazing stuff and a lot goes on with them in crowd and that other stage and projections and they give a dollar of each ticket to a charity so......

Bandits Scrimmage

So I can admit I've been a little bit behind on (e:strip) but I'm all caught up now .... When I have nothing really blog worthy I forget to read over here .... There has been political stuff but just not enough for a blog .....

Now in Previous years The Bandits have had Scrimmages but they where either out of town or not open to public and have had what they call an Open Practice and then people who don't have them can get Season Tickets and they had an autograph thing... I skipped that and got my ticket for TSO in late December ....

Now this photo is after the game and the flag is before the game with the cranes and construction it kinda felt like I was in Toronto but haven't been there in ages now that I have the right ID I need to try and go to Canada been meaning to for some time......

I also like The Christmas Trees but the metal detectors wasn't fun anything with metal or magnetic stripes out.... Guess cause it was Pearl harbor day ????

I somewhere lost my way..... It was a standard 4 quarter game and the Bandettes danced before game and during what I think was a much shorter half time.... For the Bandits the Goalies switched so the goalie I don't know was at my end both times.... Bandits won and Saluted fans at the end it was a lot of fun ......

? Plans ahhhhh

So was looking forward to going to see bands and Burlesque 2 nights in row at Nietches but it didn't happen...... Leave work friday feeling fine and then the tired ness feels like more then that kinda an exhaustion so there was really no way to go out and hoped for tonight ..... But woke up tired it isn't fun and sleepy all day and both days I could even feel it in my legs .... So there was really no way to go out.... But I at least made sure I got a costume for the party.... So I'll have to be there and hope I can stay for a bit well more then that .... So sorry no bands and burlesque photos it would have been fun.... Full work week sometimes just takes me out and I think it with the commute really all ways has..... I did see that there is another Street art piece on elmwood.... Did enjoy watching stuff on DVR and TV though so not all bad.... So anyone who is out and about enjoying the holiday have fun like Prom of the dead.....

Twitterverse and will it effect companies ?

-I can admit that I wish I had more info before I write this blog but this is more about wondering
-Depending on what you count I'm on multiple blogging or call them Social Media sites and they aren't all the same
- I've seen plenty of websites that I can't figure out how they make money some of it is from Advertising and I've even seen an ad that I don't know if it is true but that claims if you have Google mail you get ad e-mail before your regular e-mail ?

I'm on Twitter and I think it is a lot of fun.... It is really made to post and sometimes people answer about things that are going on currently much more then facebook So fun to talk about shows that are on live and some people from some shows come on when it is on.... It still feels very new to me and I bet there is stuff I'm missing ...

I'm not sure how they make money though.... I know that on the left of the screen there is where it says what is trending and often the first one is one that it says is promoted so I assume said company pays for that but no idea if it is only one company at a time , if it is more then one what determines what one you see.....

I do follow companies off hand CocaColaBuffalo WWE Lays come to mind real quick . Now do companies pay for their official name and Page ..... The other factor is the @ vs. # . The At symbol is what puts something on a person's or companies page . The Number sign aka Hashtag makes it a topic .. Those aren't just for shows ... Yes it is searchable so say you like #TattooTuesday or #TittyTuesday #ThongThursday or even #BUFvsMIA you will get every post on that name the second one often has pictures along with the #Boobs one..

Now I mention that cause I don't pay a dime but I wonder if or how much companies pay to have a page... Or is there some other way they pay I have no idea.... But there is a built in part of twitter assuming it isn't the mobile version that it makes it at work that when use use the @ and start typing suggestions come up not all are companies but wonder if they pay for that or if it just uses a like what you are spelling ?

It also use to be that you had to know the # or just use your own or what ever .. But recently there was a change where it suggests them as you type them into a post... I wonder do companies pay so that the correct will be used.... As an example the NFL When the Bills play in Miami it would be #BUFvsMIA but if it was Dolphins in Buffalo #MIAvsBUF but some teams it isn't so well known so I wonder if someone pays for the suggestions but I have no idea.....

But the big thing with twitter and I don't know if they will change this but after @ and # numbers alone don't turn blue as topic unless followed by letters also punctuation ends both of them as an example say you wanted to say I bought this chocolate at walgreen's with a hashtag if you used it would end at the n and the place isn't walgreens ..... Now if you know or take the time to look up their page you can use the @ and put it on there page.......

Again I don't have all the details but Twitter went public .... So I assume this means they will want more advertising so stock prices will go up as they make more money......

So what I wonder is as and if Twitter gets bigger... How will company names change.. Say I'm coming out with a new soda or product of some kind.. I don't any thing like Coca-cola or M&M's ? I want a name that under the rules of twitter looks the same everywhere ? So I do wonder if it will have an effect I think it will ?

Columbus Day Skins

So Yesterday On my way to see Machete Kills (yeah it was fun by the way) I saw there is some more Street Art on Elmwood... But they have this thing like tells the Bus Drivers stuff and it was about the Parade Route ... I didn't know there was a columbus day parade or maybe I did but had no idea when and where.....

Now when I first think about Christopher Columbus I think oh you mean that guy who got lost and found land that no one knew about well except for the vikings .... Who came here and left maybe some stayed ?

Now there are people who will tell you all the bad things columbus did and why are we celebrating that... Those people have a point... But the flip side is if he didn't get lost maybe this country would have never happened... Yeah The Indians had their land taken ... But The point here is they lost .... They lost and yes the government used things like Buffalo Soldiers to hunt them ... I think most people think it is like how our country was founded... But it is more He was the Founder of the colony that uprose england ? I think it is ok to say yes all that evil stuff is ok cause it gives us this country we have today.....

But this brings up a couple of questions ?

-Some Indians have been protesting The Redskins .... Now to me the term isn't a put down it is about the fighting spirit like all the other Indian names but I can admit I have no idea how they came up with names like cowboys so if yeah get ride of them where does it stops Chiefs and change cowboys also ......

-I can also admit that I other then the Nation of its own and Non tax status I don't get how reservations work... I guess they like them they can sell smokes and gas and have gambling but what about people who don't have that.... Maybe that should be the concern not the football team protest ?

Now when writing a blog there isn't all ways a point sometimes it is just kinda a way to reflect a little bit... and I thought the Redskins would link in more directly it did in my mind at least ... I guess you could say that since the Indians where concurred and made deals aka treaties do they really have any reason to complain I don't think so..... That being said though maybe here is what we should do make it all the way... You don't want Indian names in sports fine change them all and no more having all your people live together no more reservations .... It is fine to have your culture and everyone should but you can't have it both ways ?
