“RANTS against TUMBLR” by JTK.CA

“RANTS against TUMBLR” by http://JTK.CA

Tumblr exclaims, “Cover up those naughty bits! Where do you think you are? Tumblr?” ::: Tumblr is the Doctor McCoy of social media. “I’m dead, Jim.” ::: Tumblr is the new NANNY STATE! Goodbye Freedom. πŸ˜±πŸ˜ πŸ˜­πŸ’” ::: When will Tumblr realize they just banned Tumblr! Morons! ::: R.I.P. TUMBLR. Fuck Censorship! You were a beacon of hope for free expression. Good-bye, you censorious bastards! ::: Tumblr? Female-presenting nipples my ass! Oops! You probably ban asses now too! πŸ€ͺ ::: Until a few days ago when the Tumblr porn ban was announced, the term “female-presenting nipples” had never been seen before. Ridiculous term! And ridiculous policy! ::: Rest in Pieces, Tumblr! Or should I say, Crumblr? Thanks for killing our dreams in your selfish suicidal jump off of a politically correct bridge! ::: I often dont feel RAGE, but Tumblr was my favourite freedom platform! Damn its new chains! ::: Tumblr becomes CRUMBLR. So sad to see free expression commit suicide. Censorship is EVIL! I’m staying NAKED whether you like it or not! FREEDOM WILL PREVAIL! ::: Crap! Why doesn’t Tumblr learn from Googles Blogger. They tried that but had a huge outcry from creators and backed off. As long as you designate your work in your settings as NSFW or Adult, whats the problem? We’re grown-ups. We can make our own decisions, you censorious bastards! 🀬😑 ::: I have two sites that will be destroyed by this new policy! I cant believe Tumblr, of all places, has gone down the censorship rabbit hole! This sucks and must be stopped!

PLEASE, EVERYONE SIGN THIS PETITION!

CN Tower, please return to these ORIGINAL POD NAMES.

For me, CN Tower / La Tour CN is my favourite and most infuriating #MandelaEffect. I was growing up and the CN Tower was building upward in the mid-1970's. I was obsessed, knew all its statistics and have travelled up it eleven times. And every one of those times, the biggest pod was called the Sky Pod and the higher smaller pod was called the Space Deck! Then sometime in the late 1980's or in the 1990's, mysteriously, the Space Deck became SkyPod, and what I always knew as Sky Pod became . . . well . . . NOTHING . . . or, sometimes Main Pod, Tower Sphere, or LookOut. I'm a CN Towerholic and always have been, but I always feel joy and fury simultaneously when looking at it and having to do a double-take. My inner child says, Sky Pod. The CN Tower says nothing. My inner child says, Space Deck, and the CN Tower says, Space What? This is SkyPod. And I say, "LIARS!" To prove my point that the large one is Sky Pod and the smaller higher one is Space Deck, attached is a scan of my own piece of 1985 CN Tower memorabilia! Plus, it makes the most sense for the lower pod to be SkyPod and the higher pod to be SpaceDeck, since Space is higher than Sky. -- Jonathan Tad Ketchen (SpaceDeck Space Cadet)


The song “Sound of a Woman” by @Kiesza is dream-enhancing sonic perfection!

“WAVERLEY PARK is my PLANETARIUM” by JTK.CA ::: I often do my superzoom moon and planets photography in Guelph, Ontario’s Waverley Park, within walking distance from my place. I used my 63 times optical zoom SONY DSC-H400 digital camera for these shots. The close-up shots of JUPITER WITH 4 JOVIAN MOONS and EARTH’S MOON were shot at the full 63 times optical zoom, which will still likely be shrunken by the time it reaches you, here on social media.

“GREAT SERMON, DAD! BUT . . . (The perils of raising a free thinking son)” by JTK.CA

“GREAT SERMON, DAD! BUT . . . (The perils of raising a free-thinking son)” by http://JTK.CA

Dad (http://RevDavidKetchen.tumblr.com) raised a free thinker. I remember after one of his sermons, I said, “Great sermon, Dad. But, you said at one point, ‘It may not be how we live, but it’s what we believe.’” Then I continued, “If it’s not how we live, maybe we need to ask ourselves if it really is what we believe.” Dad said, “Good point.” — Jonathan Tad Ketchen (http://JTK.CA)

“TEMPTATION IS LIKE A SCAB. YOU HAVE TO LEARN NOT TO PICK AT IT.” by JTK.CA

“TEMPTATION IS LIKE A SCAB. YOU HAVE TO LEARN NOT TO PICK AT IT.” by http://JTK.CA

Dont you rush the healing.
Perfection is appealing.
That scab
s there for a reason.
It only lasts a season.

Slowly watch the magic
Undoing the tragic.
The scab will fall away

On healings final day.
 
Temptation is like a scab.
You have to learn not to pick at it.

"MENTAL FLOTSAM" ::: © JTK.CA

"MENTAL FLOTSAM"
by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I may look normal to you, but I am disabled. I have an invisible disability, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), invisible that is, unless you're paying close attention to things like my obsessive checking of the table, chairs, and under them, when I leave a restaurant, to make sure I've not left anything behind. The cannister of moist towelettes that accompanies me everywhere is probably a dead giveaway too.

I used to also be tormented a lot by obsessive thoughts repeating themselves over and over again, however, I've come up with a technique that "usually" helps me conquer them. You know the floaters that you notice every once in a while, in the middle of your visual field, just sort of floating around without a care in the world, not realizing those little debris flotsam are annoying the heck out of you? Well, I keep my obsessive mental ramblings from getting me down by saying, "It's just MENTAL FLOTSAM," and going about my day. It really helps me, and I hope it helps you too, whether or not you have OCD. Next time you can't get that song out of your head, just remind yourself that, like those floaters on your eye, that song obstructing your other thoughts is "just mental flotsam." Then, with the attitude adjustment, the song may leave you alone, because you've refused to let it torture you. It's like James 4:7 (KJV) says, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (http://bible.cc/james/4-7.htm)

“X MARKS THE SPOT” by JTK.CA ::: Named for INDIANA JONES movie moments, in which first, Indy tells his students, “X never marks the spot!” followed later in the movie by his incredulous line, “X marks the spot,” when he finds something of great importance under a giant Roman numeral X marking on the floor. The lines are from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” — definitely the best Indy movie, in my book.

“TAD’S ASYMMETRICAL SPARKLY RORSCHACH TESTS” by JTK.CA ::: These are detailed scans of minor portions of the sparkly colour stickers on one of my no name Rubik’s Cube knock-offs. I think it was branded “Magic Cube” decades ago when I bought it. When choosing what parts to turn into future colour patterns for my graphic desgining, I have titled each one with how my brain saw it. Enjoy.

“FLARP: My Superhero Alter Ego” by JTK.CA

“FLARP: My Superhero Alter Ego” by JTK.CA

In the early 1980’s, at a junior high school costume dance, I dressed up as my superhero alter ego named FLARP. Flarp wore a blue Adidas® jogging suit with yellow stripes down the sides; a green bath towel for a cape; a neon orange hunting cap; and a toy machine gun with sound effects. Obviously (with the toy gun) it was a different era. I aimed my toy machine gun at three girls, shot them with the machine gun sound effect, and they proceeded to dance with me. FLARP was luckier with the ladies than I’ve ever been as myself.

Several years later, my brother Mike gave me a Whoopee Cushion for Christmas or my Birthday. The reason was that it was branded with the name “FLARP!®” Cool coincidental naming! Perhaps I’ll replace my alter ego Flarp's now-politically-incorrect toy machine gun with FLARP!® Self-Inflating Whoopee Cushions and FLARP!® Noise Putty, both made by Ja-Ru, Inc. However, since I’m also a nude model, they’d probably want nothing to do with me. I’ve also thought I could replace the toy machine gun with harmless, tiny Valentine pillows I’d throw at people, symbolizing a superhero who just wants to fill the world with love. I’m crazy; just go with it.

The Censorship of Free Speech Platform Gab sets a Dangerous Precedent

“THIRD OPINION” ::: © The Rev. David R. Ketchen (JTK.CA’s Dad)

Tad’s Note: This is written by my dad. Enjoy!

The Rev. David R. Ketchen
(JTK.CA’s Dad)


“THIRD OPINION” ::: © The Rev. David R. Ketchen (JTK.CA’s Dad)

Some seventy-plus years ago, in the little village of Drayton, Ontario, Canada, long before there was a summer festival, and the Festival Theatre was still the Town Hall – a young woman, recently married, got up early, fixed breakfast for her husband and saw him off to work. She hurried through her household chores, put on her winter coat, and trudged through the snow to visit the family doctor. She was pretty sure she knew what he would tell her, so she was not surprised when, after a lengthy examination, he sat her down and said, “You’re pregnant.” However, she was surprised at the worried look on his face as he said, sadly, “Because of the peculiar anomalies of your pelvic structure, you can never bear children, and if you try to have this baby, both you and the baby will die. The only option for us is to operate and take the baby now. (This was long before the days of easy abortions). She said, “I’d like a second opinion.” He said, “Who would you like to see?” She asked, “Who would you recommend?” He responded, “I think you should go to K-W Hospital (now Grand River Hospital in Kitchener).” So, later that week, her husband borrowed a car, and they drove the thirty miles to Kitchener where she was examined by a team of specialists who unanimously concurred with the first doctor’s opinion. It was a quiet drive home. What was there to say?

The next morning, she walked across the park by the cenotaph to visit her husband’s mother. She was a cheery and chubby woman. “Well Jeanie,” she asked, “What did they tell you in Kitchener?” When she told her the sad news, her mother-in-law said, “Nonsense! Go on up to Moorfield and see Dr. Jim McQuibban.” Well known and loved throughout the area, he had established his medical practice years before, in Alma, Ontario, with his brother George. After George left medicine to become the Liberal MPP (Member of Provincial Parliament), Dr. Jim soldiered on alone. Patients came from as far away as Elmira. Dr. George died suddenly of a massive heart attack in his Toronto hotel room at the age of 50. Both were active elders in the Presbyterian Church. George was widely known as a lover of birds, and he had an extensive collection of rare birds. (Presumably, they were all Presbyterians too).

Jeanie got a friend to drive her to Moorfield, and Dr. Jim McQuibban examined her at length. She told him what the other doctors had said, and he smiled gently and said, “Don’t worry, Dear. I’ll get your baby for you,” and he did. Mind you, it was touch and go, and Jeanie almost died. Afterwards, Dr. Jim said, “Don’t ever try to have any more!”

There are a lot of people that I want to meet when I get to Heaven. One of the first has to be Dr. Jim McQuibban, because I owe him – big time, I owe him! You see, that woman was my mother, and I was that baby, and I almost didn’t get to be here.

– Copyright © 2009 The Rev. David R. Ketchen

Tad’s Note: Like Dad, I wouldn't be here without Dr. Jim McQuibban either, or my brothers, or my nephews and nieces. A lot of people owe him "big time"!
