Kill one and they will hunt you.

Kill a few and they will fear you.

Kill thousands and they will worship you.

Track Who Views Your Facebook Page Now

There are still no apps, plug-ins, programs, tools, websites or anything else that will show you who has viewed your Facebook page. Security requirements and technology do not currently support any kind of visitor identification features. At best, I think using IP (Internet Protocol) logging and location verification, users could see house/company the computer visiting is located, but for seeing specific users you would need cookies, ideally engineered by Facebook but that would raise a whole host of controversy and as of Facebook going public they need to keep their reputation better than ever so the likelihood of an intrusive tracking cookie is smaller than before.

However, if I learn of anyway to see who views your Facebook profile I will share with you guys. So stay tuned and subscribe.

Brainwashed by Radio

I've been listening to the radio lately, no stations in particular just flipping around. And I've noticed certain stations only air a limited playlist over hours of air time. Im talking about a variety of five unique songs over hours. To me this is very strange because there must be millions of songs available in the world, after taking into account the music that would appeal to a given region, or legal issues or any number of reasons there are still many songs to select from. Not to mention the playlist from last month, then the month before, and so on and so forth.

There must be a logical reason for why such a small selection of music is played, its not like people watch the same movie three times a week and I cant imagine a limited playlist would draw more listeners, it would probably turn listeners away because it's the same thing over and over.

So who would stand to gain the most from just a few songs flooding the airwaves?

Then I remembered the Mere-exposure effect, this is a psychological phenomenon by which people tend to develop a preference for things merely because they are familiar with them. In social psychology, this effect is sometimes called the familiarity principle. The effect has been demonstrated with many kinds of things, including words, Chinese characters, paintings, pictures of faces, geometric figures, and sounds. In studies of interpersonal attraction, the more often a person is seen by someone, the more pleasing and likeable that person appears to be.

Now what does this all mean to me? Select radio stations are being funded by; music labels, producers, companies, or whoever in order to coerce average people into liking certain songs/artists. That it comes down to is radio broadcasters being payed to play select music so the radio music is being used as one long commercial. Which creates money for whoever actually owns the royalties on the music, just because an artist is on the cover, they didn't need to write, record or do anything to create the media.

Danica Talos

Golly...Danica Talos...Golly

Why did her character have to die at the end of the Blade movie? What is it about her character that is just so cool. The eyes, the fangs, the attitude, the leadership, the hole dang package. Bravo, to be honest I was displeased that she died at the end but I had to happen, her being a vamp and everything, but part of me was hoping she would have a miraculous change of heart or something, join Blade and the humans and she would be given an antidote so she could live on. 

One as a human, because we're all humans after all.

And I have to comment on Danica's brother (blonde guy in suit) and the big guy (the big guy) they were cool. They all made a great dynamical team that I enjoyed following, like villains that you care about. With individual personalities that exceeded classical boundaries.

Blade Trinity

So I just watched Blade:Trinity. About me, I enjoy the vampire genre, movies, television, games, etc. Its good fun and like zombies you can kill tons of'em and never have to worry about someone taking it personally. Well unless you work in the goth store that sells Count Chocula and Dracula lunch boxes, then if Dracula enters its not a good day.

So ya, I think it was a cool movie. I don't know what happened to Wesley Snipes though, he acts like a sociopath in the movies especially in this one when he's in jail and looking around like the walls are talking to him or something, but thats just part of his vampire hybrid persona I suppose. I heard he went to jail in real life for something. I've also heard other celebrities like Paris Hilton I think went to jail for a day for something a regular person would be in for a few months, I wonder if Mr. Snipes got a lightened sentence due to his celebrity. Does fame make people do crazy things, or does the media glorify the story when an idol has a run in with the law? I think it is both.

Anyways, so the movie, I was entertained. Lots of cool slow motion combat scenes and skulls smashing and vamp staking. **Spoiler Alert** It's too bad Dracula dies at the end though. Why is it that every time Dracula is portrayed in a movie or book or what ever that he has to die? He is generally thousands of years old and yet he gets killed in every debut. Well there hasn't been any story with Dracula as the hero, he is always the antagonist. Perhaps the anime "Hellsing" the main character and hero is a very powerful vampire that protects humans against the undead evils. But I am unaware of him ever being referred to as Dracula, but to be honest I've never seen more than bits and pieces of the series in all my years.

So back to the movie, lots of fighting, some story tying everything together, more fighting, some funnies and a happy ending just as all modern stories must end.
