Slab City Saturday Movie Night

No, there isn’t a Movie Night in Slab City. Trust me, there are way better things to do here on a Saturday night- like music at The Range or dropping acid in the HoT Springs. But what I’m talking about is me in the Motorhome freshly showered off from the enormous pot-cloud that was 3 hours at The Range (but I had a f*cking blast though! The people and all the dogs were all so freaking nice! Oh, and there was a cat and a rabbit. Seriously.) and I’m watching Bad Grandpa with Johnny Knoxville. I thought it would be stupid. I’ve had it forever. But mediocre WiFi left me few choices. Anyway, this sh*t is HILARIOUS.  Some of it is a little predictable, but wow, some of it is just over the top funny sh*t. I give it 4.5 inches.

My turtles deserve this. 

So, it’s winter in California. My 2 girls have to stay in at least 70 degrees if they can’t warm themselves by hauling themselves out of the trough and onto their wooden deck to bask in the sun. And there isn’t enough sun or warmth this time of year. So, I dropped a 250 watt submersible heater in there to keep it about 72 degrees.

Well now there’s no garden to water either (so no recycling their water to water the plants). That means their water gets dirty. So I am going to put this filter in with them to keep the water from getting stagnant and to keep it clean.

Very un-treehugger of me, I know. Normally I like using as much of their unfiltered water as I can to water the garden and then replace it with fresh, clean water. 3 birds 1 stone: recycle nutrient rich water to fertilize plants; bucketing out water keeps the water from getting stagnant; and finally, the water is perpetualy clean by replacing dirty water (to go to the garden) for clean water. Win-Win-Win. But Winters are not a win for this hippie, lol.

I can’t complain, it’s only $24 on Amazon.

@Apple #AppleMusic limits?!?

I was made aware this morning of a limitation of Apple Music regarding Family Sharing. If an individual is in one “Family” he/she can only switch to another “Family” 2 times in a 6 month period. So, if your girlfriend dumps you and removes you from her Family Share, you have to wait the remainder of the 6 months from when you started to join another “Family”. Wow. That blows. #AppleSometimesSucks

(this actually blows. wait 200 days to sign up for #AppleMusic? Bl*ws. next they are gonna raise their prices on their MacBook Pros… oh, wait…)

 

Huge @Apple fan, but…

The new MacBook Pro’s announced yesterday are #amazing. I can’t say enough about the innovative steps forward they have made. But…

“Industry Standard” USB-C ports are just that. Why is Apple calling them “Thunderbolt 3”? They are USB-C. Apple did have a hand in creating this new standard, but don’t put the Thunderbolt moniker on USB-C. It’s USB-C.

Secondly, Apple went on and on about replacing the industry standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 with Lightning headphones. That’s well enough. But then why do the new MacBook Pro’s have 3.5mm headphone jacks?? Shouldn’t they at LEAST have Lightning output so you can use your Apple Headphones with them? And going back to the iPhone 7… why didn’t they JUST make USB-C charging ports/headphones? Just as small, versatile and just as digital. Now going back to MacBook Pro- so if they had done that (USB-C headphone/charger combo) with the iPhone 7, we’d have no 3.5mm jack in this new laptop. We’d be able to plug our USB-C headphones (from our iPhone 7) into our brand new, expensive 2016 MacBook Pro. Theres over $200 worth of adapters we’ll need if we want to keep our existing peripherals now anyway, but now we’ll have to be taking off/putting on the headphone adapter we got with our iPhone 7’s to go from Lightning to 3.5mm. (It’s the only adapter that comes free, and that’s with the purchase of the iPhone 7).

Apple always innovates. But sometimes they f*ck up. This was a f*ck up. If 3.5mm headphone jacks take up more space and are analog and everything about Lightning is better, why didn’t they just put a lightning port in this new MacBook Pro? Oh… wait… I wanted USB-C headphones, I forgot. Thanks Apple. Now I’m just chasing my tail. I think there are a lot of other people getting dizzy too.
