    Let's talk about blackfishing

    Let's talk about blackfishing

    Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 18. New episode, new haircut. Today I chose to talk about blackfishing. A term that my auto-correct doesn't believe exist and it is correct. We can't just keep making up words to cover up what is straight up jealousy. And yes, the Jesy Nelson story inspired this episode.

    Git good or GTFO

    Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 17. About a day after publishing the last episode, I had a few issues around new git repositories directly connected to some identity politics that snuck into software development all the way to the team that manages a software most developers use thus breaking tools that have existed for decades.

    And yes I am wearing my 2018 Hacktoberfest bragging rights shirt here.

    Don't walk in parks at night

    Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 16. Twenty-four hours since the last one so today's episode is more of the real thing compared to the previous. Here I will briefly talk about the Sabina Nessa murder, what we know, how people can help and mostly what it reminds us all. Clue in the episode title.

    Return to Rumble ramblings

    Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 15. Eight months since the last one so today's episode is mostly a catch-up/warm-up episode so that I get back to podcasting in a more serious manner. It's probably one you could skip but it'll be cool if you check it out.

    Making women sports great again

    Making women sports great again

    Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 14. In today's episode, I will talk about that executive order the newest US president signed and why it can make women sports entertaining again by making them more manly. You can't make this up and I hope we will see some interesting developments out of this story. If they keep coming I'll keep recording. Even if they don't I'll find something else to ramble about until I can have guests again.

    Black lives matter

    Black lives matter

    Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 13. In today’s episode, we’re catching up. It’s been way too long since I published the last MD. Coming back on my recording schedule, it seems like episode 13 should have been about Kevin Hart. Looks like I wrote a draft and forgot about it. Him getting pulled off the Oscars, his new special, etc. However, this one may be more interesting for you to listen to as we tackle BLM. “Black lives matter”, a rallying cry to fight injustice especially against black people. Or so you’d think, however, black people seem to receive more abuse from BLM supporters than from the traditionally accepted racists with a different skin tone.

    Interestingly enough, for the first time ever, I received what one would call racist abuse if it came from a white person. However, one would not call it racist because black people did it. I finally joined the BLM’ coons club alongside the likes of Kanye West, Candace Owens, Terry Crews and others. Not the worst club to be a part of when you consider the members. I will obviously wear this as a badge of honour until I die, or at least until I forget this ever happened, whichever comes first.

    While it came from a place of hatred, these people inspired me not only to record a podcast months after the last one but also to a poem I recite at the end of the episode:

    Black lives matter unless you think for yourself, no diversity of thought it’s sus
    We have a dream where black, whites, latinos, chinese jump on our single think bus
    We will chastise and shame if you don’t look nor think nor behave exactly like us
    Making up a symbol to group a bunch of nothing, a gesture, any real help is surplus

    People worried about matching their coats with a BLM sign to look good
    Focusing their energy on getting attention rather than acting good
    Something wicked this way came, shrieked and ruined everyone’s mood
    Claiming to share a dream of equality while spitting where MLK stood

    We don’t know one another, have no idea what each went through
    Screaming, scratching away the hate seems so strong in you
    Looking for answers, becoming a victim, these lies tricked you
    This poison you drink, the poison you share, this will be the end of you

    You missed the tolerance lesson we all got from Lilo & Stitch
    Going around talking such a big game but no-show on the pitch
    You turn out to be the racist you claim to hate and that’s rich
    Look in the mirror, my hair and my thoughts are my own, bitch
