I’m a Dangerous Comic

https://digitalcitizen.ca/tag/humour/I recently heard Jamie Foxx on a Tim Ferriss show episode from 2015, indirectly describe a “dangerous” comic as a comic who makes jokes that are highly questionable in taste, at least among the general public, if not any audience. The moment I heard that, I realized that’s exactly the kind of comic I was when I did amateur stand-up, and still is now but not as a stand-up because conservative Nova Scotia just can’t handle that kind of stuff! That’s even when I’m obeying the unspoken rule of subject matter hierarchy for what and whom you can make jokes about. Continue reading

A Nickname Jersey Policy Suggestion

The National Basketball Association (NBA) had its first Nickname Game last night (Fri Jan 10 2014) between the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets. It is a great marketing tool, with controversy in fan reaction and no clear future for direction. I thought I’d suggest options for a policy that might be used for nickname jerseys, not just in the NBA but also in other professional sports leagues.

The Decentralized Model of Blogging and Eight Good Blogging Rules

When someone starts a blog, one of the first and/or big question they have to answer is What is your blog going to be about?

For a lot of people, that’s a fairly narrow answer, like football, Transformers, the environment, etc.¬†Even “everything about” a topic, like Twilight, isn’t all that broad. A blog on a theme becomes a focal point for something and aim to bring readers to them on that topic, like a a city in a state, where other blogs on the same topic are other cities, and each post is a new building in its city. Readers looking for something else would go elsewhere, like to another state or city.

For me, it was different. I chose to have a blog about pretty much anything and everything.

So why did I do this and how was I going to make it “succeed”?

Soccer and Rugby Fans Facebook Friends Tagging Challenge

I created these tagging challenges for fans of North American, English and Aussie rules rubgy, or people who know lots of those fans. The tagging challenges can be done on Facebook, MySpace, LiveJournal or other platforms where you can tag people on pictures.

The idea is to see how diverse is the group of soccer/rugby fans you know, and how does that compare to your fellow soccer/rugby loving friends. It’s no fun if everybody supported the team you supported, you know!

  • Pick a Facebook tagging meme of your choice based on the leagues below: Major League Soccer (MLS), Rugby Super League (RSL) and National Rugby League (NRL).
  • Tag one person you know whose favourite team is represented by the team logo. It has to be that person’s favourite team as you can’t tag a person twice on the same photo.
  • How many teams can you tag? And how does this compare to your friends who might have done this same challenge?

Here’s how to get these graphics for your tagging fun:

  • Click on a picture below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!

Fancy yourself quite the social sports fan, or this isn’t your sport? Try the same Facebook tagging challenges for:
