Opinion: Def Noodles, the wasted YouTube Commentary Channel…

Def Noodles, if you don’t know about his videos or his content. I hate to break it too you, but your not missing out on anything. The guy behind it all is a man named Dennis Feitosa. A man who is supposed to give you Satirical News on his YouTube Channel. However, that falls flat and isn’t what it seems.

This man is supposed to be a comedian. Nevertheless, it is hard to believe this man ever met a true heckler. Since, everyone who comments or says anything negative on social media gets blocked. Even just association with critical voices is a reason for the comedian to block. If there was a dictatorial comedian. Def Noodles is the character to fit this definition.

Def Noodles could easily need the sort of praise and hand-rubs that dictators gets from their yes-men. He needs the playful interactions like them. Have a 100 people for his every joke and his every move. Surely those cat-ears needs to be appreciated. News read from a Minecraft-house is such a good platform to begin with. It is pure genius. Just like his “irrelevant news”.

He is so slanderous and doesn’t care about research. I think he doesn’t care, as long as he throws a few creators, influencers and tik-toker’s under the bus. Heck, he will drive over them with pallet-cleansers and use the pickle-ice-cream joke to the death of them. That is the sort of man he is. Yes, he is repetitive and we are not even talking about the inflamed-thumbnail on nearly every video has.

Def Noodles could need a team behind him. Since, he clearly cannot even read hashtags and study the things he retweets. As long as they are targeting popular online creators. It is fine and dandy. Especially, if those people have other scandals and he monetize this as well. That is what he does and he pushes it every single day.

It is like he wants to go after all the commentaries on YouTube. He just wants to cancel them, because one fella started to brutally destroy his “show” a few years back. Kavos who had a review-show on his YouTube channel and speaking his peace. That hurt his pride and he could never let it go. That is why everytime someone else has done the same. He has either tried to find something on them or blocked them. Now, his the biggest blocker on Twitter and the blocking tab he has must be longer than voter rolls in China.

Let’s just be clear. For a commentator himself and comedian. He got no spine. Dennis needs to grow some balls. As long as he attacks other online and uses his platform without verified information. Sooner or later he will get into trouble. Hell, someone might find some dirt him themselves. Not only the ill-advised representation of fellow creators or influencers. He might make a wedge and suddenly stumble upon someone with a huge platform and money to bury him.

It is just a matter of time before a case of slander and defamation hits the fan. He cannot continue to say and publish narratives, which isn’t true. No matter if his wearing cat-ears or not. Def Noodles cannot get away with slander, which is destroying people careers and especially asking sponsors to stop associating with other YouTuber’s without any serious proof to the alleged allegations. That is why at some point. Some of the stuff he does will haunt him and someone can point a finger at him.

A man like that should be careful. However, click-bait and the platform of a half-million subscribers make it seem like a good investment of your time. Having over 83 million views since 13th October 2018 is a good achievement. Nevertheless, if that is built on a lie and of slander. It is really a sad way to go out. Building up your own platform and then destroy it. Just because you couldn’t keep your head cool and try to verify the stories your telling. That is really a tragic way of living not only life, but your “reporting”.

Def Noodles could use his platform for good. Instead his so into his own games. That his soon outplaying himself. It is just a matter of time. At some point someone will say: “how dare you speak of me and my family in this way” and they will find some remedies to settle it. Sooner or later, he might get strikes and get demonetized.

What I can say… I used to watch his videos until a few months ago. When my wife spotted the obvious of how repetitive and non-funny he was. Because, during quarantine and such. Videos like him started to pop-up on my YouTube feed. Therefore, I started to watch. Now, I have quit and I don’t regret it.

So my last remark is… that I wish him all the best as a content creator. However, he should be careful. It is always nice to check and research sources. Especially, when you have so many eyes watching and you have questionable actions done in the past. I have deleted and begged forgiveness when I have posted fake things and been in the wrong. That is what a person does and take responsibility for the mistake and the lack of research. As you get caught up in the hype and publish without thinking. I have done that during elections and campaigns, when they have manufactured letters and statements. Therefore, I know the issues and is cautious of doing it now.

That is something Def Noodles should do as well. However, I don’t think he has the heart or the will power to do that. He just want the click-bait and the internet outrage to drive his stats. So, that he get more ad-revenue on his channel. Peace.

Opinion: UCC goes only after Bobi Wine Friendly Youtube Channels …

The Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) wrote a letter to Google INC on the 9th December 2020, as they stated that several accounts was breaching Ugandan Law through the Youtube Platform. These accounts, channels and media houses that is targeted just happening to be People Power and Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine friendly ones. They are not going after anyone who has made accounts praising the President or the NRM. No, they are just targeting a selective 14 channels on Youtube and Facebook. It is very intentional.

That the UCC does this isn’t shocking nor surprising. This is the same UCC who has blocked opposition from appearing on radio broadcasts and blocked people from wearing red berets on TV shows. This government entity is working as the good servant for the Presidency and his vision. The UCC is a slave to the President and all of his actions. If they weren’t that. It wouldn’t have acted like this. Muffling the free speech and using the law to suppress alternative media. If the UCC cared about that. They would have targeted these actions differently, alas they do it now in midst of campaigning. As they know no other follows the opposition and particularly Bobi Wine like these media outlets.

These fourteen in question is: TMO Online, Fred Lumbuye, Trending Channel UG, Uganda Yaffe, Uganda News Update, Ghetto TV, Busesa Media Update, Uganda Empya, Map Mediya TV, KK Tv, Ekyooto TV, Namungo Media, Jil Muwonge 2 and Bobi Wine 2021.

These 14 entities are on Youtube and these channels have to follow Terms of Services. These channels have to follow laws and the jurisdiction to the Youtube and Google. These entities are following the usage and rightfully so. They are putting out content, because of the ability to do so. If they are putting out content that is deemed illegal or unfit for Google/Youtube. The company can strike them, they can suspend and they can delete it. This is being done on a regular and they can also get demonetized as well… which means that the entities or channels can loose ad revenue, if Youtube deem it unfriendly and make it unprofitable content. That is also something they do to their creators. Therefore, the UCC is sending a warning and possibly making this possible for these channels.

However, the UCC doesn’t have a direct connection or control here. The Google/Youtube enterprise is following laws and statutes from elsewhere. Therefore, the question is in another dominion. Meaning, this can only be a plea by the UC to shut these down or suspend them. However, the UCC doesn’t deliver anything substantial. Other than some nice wordings in a long letter, but no direct proof of the allegations. They are not proving which videos or clips that is horrific or “hate speech”. That is why this is very fruitless.

The UCC is acting as the mouthpiece of the President. He only wants UBC, UBC lite versions out there and New Vision outlets. Which only spew out his propaganda. The President only wants his words and his “victories”. The man doesn’t want other things out and that is undermining his standing in the public. As people are getting news, views and perspective outside his controlled media space. This is why the UCC is going after these 14 Youtube Channels.

The UCC wouldn’t do this, if they wasn’t interested to prove their loyalty. These channels are only targeted because they dare to make content, which is friendly to the main opponent Bobi Wine. If they weren’t they wouldn’t be in trouble or hit like this. Peace.

USA: FEC Chairman Lee Goodman resignation letter to President Trump (07.02.2018)

Opinion: Silencing people for profits; Thank you Social Media Corporations for your Self-Censorship!

thank-you-for-smoking

“Senator Finistirre is still fighting for his causes:

Interviewer: What do you say to the people who claim you are destroying cinema classics?

Senator Finistirre: mmm, no. All we’re doing is using digital technology to tastefully update movies of the past… by removing cigarette” (Thank You For Smoking, 2005)

Today the madness is clear, it is vindicated as the Youtube and their affiliates have censored and taken away advertisement monies from their channels and direct videos added on their page. If they are not up to standard fitting certain advertisement companies and their agents who pick videos fitting the standards of the companies that need to sell their products. Surely the chocolate industry doesn’t want to connect to the videos addressing the Syrian violence. As much as Political inspired videos who are steering a conversation is not something to connect H&M to. Still, the conversation made by certain by these videos broadens the perspective and also adds to genuine interest for otherwise intelligent debate.

If we just want water-downed sexed out headline whores of Donald Trump, than the Colgate and Nike can use the ratings to spike their sales, but that does not extend the democracy or the discussion we might need.

The reality today is that the giant corporations are really steering the conversation with their decisions. In the recent days and also earlier this year Facebook also showed their true colours. As they have actually taken away pictures of the Vietnam War Photo as the Aftenposten in Norway have written about the Iconic Photo. This been taken down because the little girl is naked on the photo and that is disturbing for the Internet Service and the Social Media.

Facebook have before also even deleted WikiLeaks Democratic Party E-Mail leaks post on their page. Just the same has happen on Twitter as the sensitive picture of the Vietnam War for them as well. The Mark Zuckerberg really suck; to be frank Suckingberg is the proper name for now. Zuckerburg and Facebook! Facebook owns Youtube who has been addressed already for their clearance and political motivated advertisement ban on the videos.  I am sure they have deleted pictures on Instagram as they own that to, because the Gram can’t handle certain political MEME’s.

That all of these Social Media and Video Provider are their own businesses; they are free to do as they please, but still worrying as they are common networks for sharing information in the modern world. It is a reason why some become members to Facebook just to get invited to certain parties and social events as they are not sent through slow-mail and not even E-Mail. With this common knowledge the internet providers and Social Media power of Facebook and Youtube, can either be investor and advertisement friendly or like they are becoming a Censorship haven for Political Correctness and not for conversation. Because if an Iconic Photo from the Vietnam War becomes an issue and if videos with cursing and discussing not so humble topics; than the Youtube and Facebook can become the innocent little cry-baby that will not change discourse, but trade their soul to Kelloggs.

zuckerberg-kenya

Is that what Zukerberg want to do to M-Pesa as well, so it can become PC and act as tool for technical monopoly and control the internet companies? We can question that because it is interesting that the photos of old have to shade because of nudity. That is similar to the quote I started this piece with. Thank You For Smoking is social political satire, but it is happing in front of our eyes as entertainment usually mirroring the reality. That is what is happening now and the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other media are doing it. They just don’t know it.

They are doubled edged swords who cut themselves in the tail while suiting their suitors just like dictators pays of their media houses and their loyal elites to cling to power. The same ways does Facebook, Youtube and Twitter to fit the programme of H&M, Nestle and Unilever. That proves the capacity of indulgent media who trades their justice for a buck. Trade of their own freedoms to fit the marginalized boards and owner of multi-national corporations instead of the world citizens; than we can do two things!

First, we can buckle under and cry havoc over the misfortune of the corporate misgivings, the Zukerberg’s who wants to friends with Corporate buddies instead of us, the people. Or we can stop using their social medias and create own. That if we want it free, just as the other portefolios of the past of information has gone from being government censorship into the public. With the public and commons decisions the Media Houses and Entertainment companies had for instance accept that the people we’re taping music on cassettes instead of buying Hank Williams at the Gas Stations for long car-trips to the coast. I am sure they felt the same with the VHS where we captured and taped the magnificent stories of Lassie and Walt Disney Corporations; even if the Disney Corporation felt insulted as they didn’t earn enough cents on the dollar on The Great Mouse Detective (1986).

With this in mind, the people can as number two still use it, but sanction the companies that are behind the insulting censorships, meaning the corporations who are dropping advertisements on Facebook, Youtube and elsewhere. Because if their hit for inability to give the people ability to converse and to share their thoughts. The censorship show the access of free speech and trust between corporations and people are dwindling.

vintage-life-magazine-1968-july-12-starving-children-biafra-war-mexico-diners-e8c4f00148368d82f763446ffe23dfc1

The Media Houses have already been compromised by less budgets and less adverts as the Internet and free content on places like Social Media are stealing funding. As the tabloid click-based fuelled non-questionable content are spreading like wildfire.  Instead of the pictures like the back-in-day photo of Vietnam War who actually once upon the time changed discourse. That should say something about Political Correctness, the Advertisement friendly environment of Social Media and disillusioned Zuckerberg’s who in quests of getting dollars have forgotten a key aspect of the people. The people share their opinions, their pictures. Not all make sense to add like pornography or nude children per say. The reality is that the Vietnam War pictures showed the cruelty and massive assault on the fellow human beings. Would the same corporation have trouble with starving kids of Biafra as they wasn’t nude, but we’re describing malnutrition and adverse civil-war in Nigeria in the 1960s? A piece of me saying that wouldn’t care, would you?

This will not stop here as the giant corporations and their partly ownership of the Social Media will not stop here. Not now and not in the near future as the Ads and paid sponsorship of the corporations owning the Social Media need the fuel of money from the giant multi-national corporations and their standards. They want to be on the right side of them; so they can be feed and earn their money. Still, that does not mean we got to accept this blatant disregard for the past and for the present. There are difference between child-porn and iconic pictures. Something the Facebook should have ability to do and be able to correct. If not then they are not serious shop and having hired the right personnel to look over the content added on the page. A wise-guy like Zuckerberg should have the capacity to see that, but he is excusing himself with poor words of non-sense. Time to man up and kiss the ring. If not, than he wouldn’t know what hit. The worst that would happen would be dozen of using suspending their use and spot using the Social Media and Corporations owned by Facebook. If we did they surely would know why the sanctions against the conversation… against the truth and against freedom of speech. Something that is worthy fights and we the commoners always have fought the battle to be able to speak without fear and with censorship from our master. Now it is just digitally and not directly on paper. Otherwise it is the same ways as in the past. The elite, the rich want us to be silenced and they want to earn on us without being questioned. We the people shouldn’t accept that. Peace.

Worrying signs of devalued ballot value in the American Democracy as their to many disfranchised voters, PACs holds on campaign funds and the Corporate Media hold on message sent to the Citizens.

American Primary

Just as the Primaries in the United States are winding down and getting closer to the Conventions of the Democratic Party and the Republic Party. The main candidates and Presidential Candidates have soon been selected and gotten picked through the mixed of ballots and the caucuses differing how the Primary Elections in the states was done.

I am not an American and can only see it as an outsider and with the view as an outsider has. To listen to the American TV reporters on FOX, MCNBC and NBC makes a European shake. The TYT is some positive, but still shows the fragmented media landscape that have been created in United States. As the grand corporate media is loyal to a certain party or a certain candidate; much like the state media houses are for their ruling parties in LDC. So the FOX channel follows and hates anything from the Democratic Party even if the person initially acts and votes similar to the Republic Party. That is the irony. The same with certain “liberal” media who follows the Democratic Party by any means and blackballs the Republican by any means.

donald-trump-make-america-great

As the Progressive and the liberal are supposed to be on the Democratic side, and the conservative side is on the Republic side. The Parties have big sides and the range of political spectrum could initial be based into four parties as the suction between all the areas and range should be concern as the Presidential candidate cannot be like a Tea-Party General and at the same time be affiliated with the establishment when it comes to certain policies. That means of actions from a Tea-Party member should be different then the Conservative party member!

Bernie BS Slogan

The Same is in the Democratic Party the establishment of the this party is more moderate and clear-faced close to the conservative establishment of the Republican. The Moderate in the party believes for instance in the sense like lax-taxation and the government institutions as small-corporate friendly environment for the 1 % instead of 99 %. While the Progressive are more on the line of Bernie Sanders and wants the taxation on the rich corporation and have labor right for the workers. So the Sanders line is far from the moderate part of his party. Still they both belong to the Democratic Party. That is what initially makes the American a rare venue of political discourse.

The Political discourse and the view on political aspects are in view concoction of corporate media, losing old papers who was the ones setting the agenda and is now not as big as before and the new media as TYT, Huffington Post and Buzzfeed changes how the political news get spread and questioned. As the radios and local broadcasters do not have the only venue and the corporate media is not the only place. Even live feeds on Youtube gives the voters more access to other sources then the ones supported by the giant multinationals who wants to decide and continue in the same level as of recent as it is profitable to keep it that way.

Ads PACs

The other thing that is special about the American Politics are the level of money that the candidates needs to raise, the amount of adverts in the media and how much they matter; that together with the presence how the Super-PACs matters in the campaigns for either senators, representatives and also Presidential Candidates. PAC stands for Public Action Committee (PAC) where they pool funds and collectively works to enhance a campaign for a certain candidate or political idea. They are not supposed to be directly connected with a Candidate up-for nomination or for a State Senator who needs ads and commercial space for their “Message”. The PAC can run to donors and financial beneficiaries that will give to the PAC as a calculation on how they can be “puppets” or necessary persons to get the legislation that the corporations who funds the PAC need. So the business has the opportunity to “own” candidates and nominations instead of the ones that are there in public confidence. That is something that make the American system lacking democratic values as the cash cows and the cash hungry campaigning endorse the idea of corporations funded candidates instead of the party funded and the people funded through this PACs. Therefore the American democracy is very corporate.

The American media that are connected to certain Political Parties and even endorse certain candidates are embedded with the ones that give highest ratings and can keep the legislation in positive favor of the stakeholders and owners of the corporate media. Not the ones that are there for the middle-America or the middle-class, working-class or any other class then the owners of the Multinational corporations or Wall-Marts of America instead citizens.

US Dollar Campaign

That is why I am little skeptical to the American Democracy. The value of the vote is less there as the system is built around the corporations and the money train. As of now it is. The ones with wealth, the ability to gain amounts of funds and collect delegates in the inner-party elections get to be the Presidential Candidate for their party. The Positive is the political range in the Democratic and Republican parties as the public can find their different candidate inside their parties.

So as an outsider I am worried and does not like with what I talked about when it comes to democratic values that the money fueled and cash registered American democracy is supposed to be the greatest and the one to aspire to. That in mind as the American Government condemns and explains their values whenever a foreign government holds an election and they are a “stakeholder” in it or support the government there.

bushgore Front Page

Certainly with the values of respecting the ballot and having systems that certainly transparent and securing the vote. As the American Government have had the hanging chad and the electronic malfunction of Florida that helped George W. Bush into power in 2000. That is not the only one issue coming with the ballots loss of value in recent times. Not the delegate system of primaries. I will speak about the election laws.

The Election laws are made to make it harder to register as voter, shorter time and if your felon or former-felon in certain states is impossible to become a voter again. We know that their groups of people who have become disfranchised by the directives and laws. Certainly this deficiency and also fear for ghost-voters make it harder to get voter-ID then getting license at the DMV in some states. If it is easier to get license to ride their Buick in Texas then getting to vote, then there something missing. Certainly something missing in the so-called democratic state in question; I just mentioned Texas the laws might be worse in Utah for all I know.

The main subject is the voters and the ballot should get respect. The Delegate in convention should follow the voters as much as the votes follow the registered ones in the tally; so the ones with the most votes in Indiana should become the Indiana Senator or Representative in Congress and Capitol Hill. That is the same if they are independent, Democratic or Republican.

But why does this matter, it is a principal. That in a democracy the votes should equally matter and the voice of the men and woman who are parts of the civic duty does it in good-faith of dropping their vote and delivering a just change or keeping status quo after their own fate in the government system and picking the right candidate to do so. If the candidate fails in their tenure or term, then the voter can through ballot pick somebody else and change guards of the democracy.

Corporation Election

The issues with election laws that disenfranchise people, when the corporations of the media spreads certain message and ideas swallows the minds and the grand idea of the free speech and level playing-field together with the monies used and needed to campaign. Gives the race and campaigning for the Presidency and the Senators’/Representatives addicted to the donors and funders of their campaigns instead of the confidence of their citizens.

And if that is the way and the corporate policy of the American Dream, if that is the vision that the forefathers of the American Democracy wanted for their American Centaury and the American ideals. That cannot be what the men and woman who fought against the British and wanted to be free nation for the settlers. As they wanted to be free to build their own nation in the vision of their citizens not in the vision of GM, Doritos, AIG, Warner Brothers, AT&T and American Express. I don’t believe that the American Government and the citizens who picks the ones that votes for the ones that represent them; that it was built for the corporate citizens for the corporations and to serve the Limited Liability Company (LLC). I thought the American Government and the ideals of their democratic values was built for the citizens and not to fit the corporate agenda and their needed heads-up to get their bills through congress either by lobby-money or PACs to secure the right Candidates in the Senate. Peace.

(Youtube – Speech) President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe speech at the state visit in South Africa – 8th April 2015

Worth looking and listening to. From the industrialization of diamond industry to the spirit if Cecil John Rhodes and so on!

Robert Mugabe actually said: “We grow for those who want to smoke it!”.

Robert Mugabe said: “We want peaceful elections”. He disscussed the intervention in DRC from the Southern Africa standpoint. This with the fear from the  power struggle of Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda in the DRC.

He even said: “As a real dicatator! Yes A dictator who had cut the troath of Ian Smith”. Which he didn’t do. He (Ian Smith) died a natural death.

And so much of more, that you should listen to and get enlighten, and get the vision of President Mugabe today.

Enjoy!

Leiefilm – Død eller bare i nytt format?

I min tidlige ungdom var drømmen om å leie DVD på torvet den store tingen. Rett på siden av leiebutikken var fast-food plassen hvor vi alle, eller nesten alle kjøpte en pita. Det var tider. Hvor Cameron Diaz var søt og Vin Diesel spilte i andre filmer enn Fast & the Furious. Eminem var jevnlig på topp lista sammen med andre pop ynglinger. Techno ble stilt av rånerne i gamle Opel Ascona eller en sliten 240. Alle kjenner det igjen. Nesten alle! Jeg lukter wonderbaumen. Wonderbaumen og den rølpete livsstilen.

I disse tidene leide man filmen. På den lokale utleie butikken. I samme tiden begynte Napster å ta. Ingen hadde tenkt på Ipod eller Itunes. Ingen måtte ha svindyre høretelefoner eller smart telefon. Du hadde en liten Nokia 3210 eller kjempe stor Motorola.

Hvorfor skriver jeg dette. Fordi jeg bare tenker. Hvordan det har forandret seg. Tidligere var det billigere for meg og deg å leie filmen. Ta den med hjem i max 3 dager for en nette sum av ca 25 -50 kr pr film. For så levere den. Billigere og lettere enn å eie den selv. Du kikket ikke en gang på trailere utenom hvis du hadde sett en lignende film på kino og den kom i forkant sammen med Solo reklamen.

Nå, bombanderes du med trailere. Samtidig som du nesten alle enten er med i en eller annen streame ordning. Eller leier filmer via Get-Boxen. Noe som og er en revolusjon. Som har forandret hverdagen til meg og deg.

Tidligere gikk vi mann av huse etter råd fra han bak disken. Råd om hvis vi likte den filmen med Ben Stiller, ville vi like den med Vince Vaughn? Eller burde vi se den nye Jim Carrey filmen?

Nå blir vi propagandisert av streametjenesten, YouTube etc. Hvis du likte denne, vil du ikke like denne? De er jo blitt #Hasjtagget så du må jo denne siden du søkte på det  samme når du så forrige videoklipp! Du leide en Miramax film, da vil du naturligvis se en Kevin Smith film!

Så verden forandrer seg. Tidligere gikk vi på videoleie butikken for å se om vi fant god underholdning. I dag gjør vi det både på streamingtjenester, på tv, på Ipaden, via Get-Boxen og via nettbutikker. Vi handler filmer på CDON og lurer på hvorfor Platekompaniet forsatt eksisterer. Jo, det og Spaceworld eksisterer fordi: Bestemor handler julegaverog bursdagsgaver til overpris til sine slektninger. Nå generaliserer jeg, men det er viss fakta bak det. Man går ikke lenger inn 7eleven for å leie film, selv om de tilbyr det. Fleste av handler heller ikke film der. Vi går der for å handle ekstport brus og smågodt før vi stikker på kino. For å se om Leonardo DeCaprio har funnet en ny måte å dø på.. På kino selvsagt!

Leiefilm og Videobutikken er snart på gamle måten borte eller på siste verset. HMV i England har lagt ned over 100 videoutleie butikker bare i fjor alene, Blockbuster har gjort det samme de siste årene. Vet ikke om  tilstanden i Norge. Men min hjemby har ingen rene leiebutikker igjen. Kristiansand har en og den er delt med Pizzabageren. Det sier sitt.

Ha en streamet framtid og måtte vi alle få se bedre filmer en Battleship. Vel møtt!
