For My Daughter’s Future

I openly oppose what Donald Trump has been doing. If you understand why, then we probably have similar opinions. If you don’t understand why, then you need to step back and examine the consequences of his actions. 

Why do I oppose him, but I’m not actually American? What the US does in many cases can have effects all around the world, especially the environmental issues. This has me worried for my daughter’s future. Still don’t understand? I’m not sure if you ever will. It doesn’t need to be explained. It seems like common sense to me. 

That’s all I’m going to write about this on this blog, unless something especially disturbing happens. I will continue to see what happens.

What’s Going on Inside My Head

Here’s what I’ve been thinking about recently:

  • My daughter read her first book by herself. This is actually pretty exciting for me.
  • I worry about the future of science in the US.
  • Climate change is real. Stop trying to hide it.
  • I wonder which team will draft me when I finish this season in the OHL in NHL 17 in Be a Pro mode.
  • This had me laughing my ass off.
  • Tomorrow is my daughter’s 5th birthday. This weekend will be the first time that we have a birthday party for her and invited friends. I wonder how it’ll go.
  • What should I watch on Netflix?
  • I loved the school group that came through at work yesterday. Amazing kids.
  • I miss Japan.

What have you been thinking about recently?

2016, What the Hell?

I think this tweet says it all:

Sorry about the language. It just seems like this year won’t stop.

Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Prince, Gordie Howe, Muhammad Ali, Arnold Palmer, and John Glenn just to name a few. And now Carrie Fisher.

And that’s not all. The refugee crisis, Brexit, Trump add on to the things that have so many people upset.

But really, Carrie Fisher?

Can we just have 2017 already?

Starting a New Science YouTube Channel! The Jay Dee Show 7

The biggest news of the week is the fact that I’m planning on starting a new science YouTube channel. I’m excited about it. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about starting a YouTube channel before. But first of all, let’s check out my main channel.

On the silly side of things, I did a Mad Libs video. I made a short story and asked readers to submit words for it. Here is the result.

And then I talked about the fantasy books I’m looking forward to in 2017.

Interested in books from Angola? Well, here are a few you can check out!

I then reviewed another episode of Star Trek. In this one, I did some acting with questionable results.

Back to Japan and a visit to the famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo.

On Friday, it was my weekly book review video. This time, it was Dune, by Frank Herbert.

And earlier today, I talked about what I found difficult about writing fiction.

Now, on to my vlog channel. I talked a lot about a new channel I want to start, and like I said, it’s something I’m excited about.

The first video of the week was one that I’d recorded on election night.

And then I talked about the Trump presidency in a very cynical video.

My sister got a new car, but someone couldn’t keep a secret. That’s my daughter.

It was my mom’s birthday, and we had a couple days of fun, including a movie and some games.

And then, the big news. I was considering doing science videos on the vlog channel. I talked about how enthusiastic I felt about it.

But it turns out I decided to create an entirely new channel for science!

And to make some high quality videos, I need a new video editing software. I decided on Filmora.

Doing some research in how to improve my videos, I talked about YouTube Analytics, as well as a memorable trip to Arby’s.

So, that’s all for this week. I hope you enjoyed the videos you chose to watch. Let me know which videos you enjoyed the most. Thanks for watching!

Really, Americans?


Congratulations, United States, you’re about to elect a mysoginistic, racist, anti-science, anti-vaccine, climate change denier as President. He’s also a guy who thinks only of himself, will erode the educational, scientific, and medical systems of the United States. Markets around the world are already dropping. 

Wow. Well, good luck. 

From Andorra to Space! The Jay Dee Show 3

Another week, another group of video to share with you. In the past week, there were fewer videos, but partly because of my anniversary. Things should return to normal in the next week, though! This week, we looked at another country, Star Trek, and more. In my main channel, there were 6 videos.

First up is the return of the Library Book Hauls with my daughter. She continues to be silly.

Also returning is The Star Trek Project with episode 5.

Moving on to the Read the World Project, we take a look at literature from Andorra.

And then it’s the final video in the From East to West series about our move from Japan to Canada.

Then it’s a Retro Book Review. I take a look at Excelsior by George Sirois.

And finally, we go back to #16 of Authors Answer with a look at some online writing resources.

Then going on to my vlog channel, I posted 4 videos, though two should be coming tomorrow.

Up first, we got to watch some guy riding on the hood of a car in a parking lot. That day, there was some silliness going on.

And then I talked about doing search engine optimization and show you how I make hot chocolate.

Monday was our fifth anniversary, so my wife, daughter, and I went to Plate International Buffet, a great restaurant in Edmonton.

And last, we watched the Presidential Debate on TV, and I considered a drinking game.

And that’s all for this week! If you have any comments, please leave them below. And of course, please subscribe to my channels!

A New Trump Drinking Game

Tonight, I watched the debate. During the debate, my family and I became a bit frustrated/amused by Donald Trump and his answers. You see, he has a problem. Any time he’s asked a question, he likes to change the subject and talk about something related or completely different. So, here is my thought:

Every time Donald Trump doesn’t answer a question with the actual answer, take a drink. If he actually directly answers the question, don’t drink anything. See how quickly you become drunk.

It’s too bad there isn’t another debate so this can be done. However, if anyone has recorded the debate, they can try this drinking game. If you haven’t seen the debate, but plan to, why not keep a score? You don’t have to drink, but see how many times you’d have to drink.

Anyone have another drinking game idea for the debates?
