Starbucks App And The Young

1 Jun

I was watching a couple of “Tweeners”(Boy & Girl), with their Frappucini at the Order Pickup Station at Starbucks on Queens Blvd & Union Tpke. Tweeners are those between the ages of 10 to 12, just below 13.

To think that one used to go to an Ice Cream Parlor or wait for the Ice Cream Truck, tells one how times have changed. Now, an app on a Smartphone is used in a transaction.

To think that I used to think that Two Way Radios were the cool thing in the 1960s.
But, Nextel never really caught on the way Boost Mobile did, and that jammed the system.
Hence the Smartphone, which is a Mobile Computer on a Telephone.
And Text Messaging is still big.

So much for playing Dick Tracy!

I GOT HBO(But No Television).

17 Apr

I’ve Got HBO!
But I don’t own a Big Screen Television. Thirty Years Ago, if I didn’t own a Colour TV, for me to brag that I have HBO, would be a Ticket to “The Funny FARM.”

But, now Smartphones are our communications centres. And they can do what a big box computer can do. I neither need a Television nor Radio, but I do have The Web.

Hence, I can watch “Seinfeld” on Hulu or “Sesame Street” on HBO, without Cable or Satellite, ditto Major League Baseball.

Yadda, Yadda!

“K of C Queens County Free Throw Basketball Championship Round III” on YouTube

8 Mar

This was Live Streaming Telecast of The Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Round III from Elmhurst, Queens, NY.

What amazes me are those people who tell me that everything should be on You Tube. Are these People somewhat Daft? In 2011, new audiences were found, not only in the USA & Canada, but in Nations where You Tube is blocked. Vimeo and Dailymotion took over in those places. Imagine having Competition Viewers in Iran. The Competitions on Dailymotion & Vimeo had viewers there. You Tube was blacked out in Iran & China.
And Vimeo as well as Dailymotion were watched in The USA.
As for the You Tube Only Crowd, especially the Crowers In Queens Neighborhoods, did any of you even bother to WATCH?

The Gospels Over 3 Days

7 Mar

First Friday was Novus Ordo, as was Saturday, which is called Saturday of Our Lady. Today is the 1st Sunday. It is also the Fourth Sunday In Lent, called Laetere Sunday, which is a Lenten Sunday of Joy. It means that Easter(Pesach) is Nigh. And I was at St. Agnes on E43rd Street in Midtown Manhattan.
Friday, March 4th at 8:00AM & The Mass Celebrant was the Most Reverend Paul Sanchez, aided by the Pastor Emeritus of St. Vincent Ferrer Parish in Brooklyn, Monsignor Fursey O’Toole, Irish Born.
The Gospel was the Greatest Commandments, both of which summarize the 10 Commandments. As Jesus said “Thou Shalt Love The Lord Thy God, With All Thy Heart, With All Thy Soul, With All Thy Mind & With All Thy Strength. The Second Great Commandment is “Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbour as Thyself.” An Example of “Love Thy Neighbour” was given at The 12:05PM Mass by Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Administrator, Fr Frank Passenant & it was an Excellent Example. We don’t always look at Our Parents as Neighbours, but they are the Neighbours closest to you. Hey, They’re Neighbours by Blood. Pray For Them, both Living & Dead.
First Saturday at the 12:05PM Mass was offered by Fr Frank Passenant. This is the Story in The Gospel of The Pharisee & The Publican. The Pharisees were the Learned Religious Men. They were The Priestly Class of Judaism. But, they were NOT always known for their Humility. Everything was OUTWARD, but not always INTERIOR.
Publican is a Nice Name for The Most Hated of Roman Officials, namely The Tax Collector. Many of these Men were conmen, often taking more than what was due. For the Tax Collector was one who often lived like a Fat Cat. For he was a Private Contractor for the Roman Empire, who often took Liberties beyond what was due. And One of The Original 12 Apostles, Matthew, was originally a Tax Collector. He was also one of The 4 Evangelists in The Writing of The Gospels.
In this Gospel, The Pharisee is, in his Prayer to The Lord, bragging about how good he is, while degrading others such as Publicans. This guy was there to be seen, like close to The Sanctuary, practically telling The Lord that his “Excrement doesn’t have a foul odor.”
What A Schmuck!
Meanwhile, The Sinful Publican, barely able to raise his eyes Heavenward, who was all the way in the rear of The Temple, actually recognized the fact that he was a Sinner, & begged The Lord in this manner, “Lord, Be Merciful To Me For I Am A Sinner.”
The Publican received God’s Mercy. The Pharisee only got the Admiration of Man.
For Today on Lautare Sunday, as this is the Sunday indicating, that The Joy of Easter is Near, hence Vestments in the Bright Colour of Pink, Today’s Gospel for The Tridentine Latin Mass is The Miracle of The Loaves Of Bread & Fish. It was only 5 Loaves of Bread and 2 Fish, yet there was enough left over to fill 12 Baskets. There were 5,000 Men who were fed. This was The Miracle of The Loaves & Fish, and Jesus Multiplied the Loaves & Fish. No one left hungry.
Three Days, Four Masses & The Good News, The Gospel Of The Lord Jesus Christ!

Laus Tibi Christe!

A Traditional Webcast Of K of C Free Throw On A Nontraditional Home-Dailymotion

2 Mar

With Over 4K Views & still getting views, the 2011 Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship, is still a Success on Dailymotion. This is all while people are uploading K of C Free Throw Basketball Videos to You Tube. On You Tube, these videos are being utterly ignored.

Presenting The 2016 Coverage from Chaminade Boys High School in Mineola, NY, the 2016 Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Long Island Championship Final. It will be webcast on delay from Mineola, on Dailymotion.
You heard me. It will NOT be on You Tube. People around the World actually paid attention to the 2011 Coverage on Dailymotion. It rarely heads there. In fact it went there 5 Years Ago and people are still stopping by to view segments. This is NOT the case with You Tube. It looks as if K of C Free Throw Basketball Championship Coverage Producers are like Lemmings, following other Producers off the You Tube Cliff. Imagine producing this thing Live & at the end, only 1 Viewer was recorded in The Republic of Ireland, no doubt drinking Rather Strong Tea. You Tube Live is NO WAY to carry the Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship. I did a You Tube Live Streaming Telecast of The Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Round III from Cathedral Prep Seminary High School in Elmhurst, Queens, NY and ONLY 1 Viewer was recorded in The Republic of Ireland. I am NOT wasting valuable coverage by using Google’s Vastly Overused & Overrated You Tube to do this.

What was interesting was THAT in 5 Minutes 48 Seconds, the Post Competition Coverage on Streamago gained 27 LIVE Viewers and 5 more on Replay.

But for something as Big as the Long Island Championship Round, Coverage will be on Dailymotion. The Video is better & the Service is not overwhelmed with K of C Free Throw Basketball Championship Producers. And there are no idiotic comments. Quality reigns Supreme on Dailymotion.

I cannot say the same for You Tube.
