A blowout great year for my Google Domains Blogger page, and a quick look forward to the new year.

By
December 31, 2019


A quick overview of my year, here on iPigeon.institute, on Google Blogger, and looking forward, as it's New Year's Eve, today, in sunny Los Angeles, CA, USA.
It's been a graciously fortunate year,  and a growth-driven looking forward to future readership interactions and perhaps monetization of my Google Blogger and Google Domains sites,  with iPigeon.institute being the main publication site.  


This month has shown itself to have been my strongest month yet,  readership-wise. I feel like I've perhaps broken in to a new demographic for having placed a calculated marketing effort on craigslist, one week.  craigslist still proves to be a powerful medium for establishing localizable and targeted marketing promotions efforts. 

A look at the yearly readership stats.  I'm excited to see readership showing strong upward momentum on my publishing efforts.  Thank you,  everyone who's read,  commented,  and contributed in one way or another, to my blogging!

    What will I be doing for this New Year's? Probably nothing much,  aside from collecting recyclables,  heading through Echo Park,  maybe look at the light installment at Grand Park,  DTLA (there is a well-attended New Year's Eve party at Grand Park, traditionally).

    ... 🤔 say hi to familiar faces (hopefully). I did come across one of my Facebook friends earlier,  on Skid Row. He'd been wanting to hang out. A fortunate sign; this serendipitous chance interaction.  



    I'm excited for this upcoming month's expense budget and devices list update of a new 2019 iPad,

    Indianapolis. Current location of my 128 GB Gold iPad (7th Generation) 2019 version. Slated to arrive in-store on the 8th of January. Hooray! Design| work in style,  with plenty of storage. [I couldn't quite afford the iPad Air 3, latest model,  with my credit card program fees,  with First Premier Bank] ($49 program fee and $125 annual card fee for the first year). (They are offering me a total of $500 credit,  though,  and it's nice to have a credit card).


    a couple of small credit accounts, and a new home at a place just up and around the corner from my apartment and first site of iPigeon.institute (that location is hereby closed).

    The new place offers food - a much welcome and appreciated amenity.  I've established some good face-to-face friends with the local RV  (recreational vehicle) parkers, nearby the local "pit."

    Here's some photos of the local pit - for locals.

    Finding a date on Thanksgiving weekend in Los Angeles, CA.

    Everybody goes through it.

    Well, okay. Maybe not everyone, but it seems like it's a commonly recurrent theme, whereas the chances of actually finding a workable spot or locale to find a date in from amidst the various street scenes, here in Los Angeles, are many, while it's become woefully obvious to me that many people I know, personally, have let their dating game wither at the cusp of middle-young adulthood - (It seems to me, that this age-era in life features several sorts of people who are still latching on to their youth, in terms of relating to people; that's why I'd still include the disclaimer of youthfulness here).

    A person ought to know, by Thanksgiving's Eve, of what they intend to do and where to go, out here in Silicon City (Los Angeles). So what are the major options? Let me run through my memories, as a homeless person, of Thanksgiving holidays past. 

          Hmmm...

    First of all, don't go to the beach. That would be the equivalent of having a Wikipedia romp on a topic subject of something of viable academic merit. It's going to be raining, and people at the beach are typically formed of cliques and groups of people. Being a loner amongst such vast amounts of people walking by leaves little room or opportunity for sparking a conversation through some organic and viable means. I've spent several to many Thanksgiving holidays out in Venice, as a beach bum, and the older I get, the less tolerant I am for hanging out with random bums; many of them had turned homosexual, at this age, and with me commonly dressing myself like a woman, I find that here and there, I'd simply have opened up an uncomfortable can of worms, in regards to discovering that some guy is now interested in me for unexpected reasons. I really do intend not to be cast-typed and set off for another year as an HIV risk, for the sake of a night of shameless pleasure and lingering regrets. As if. 

           Second of all,

    Don't start checking craigslist for a date. It's lost the Long Term Relationships section, as far as personals, while the remaining one dating section, out of the formerly four sections dating lists is Missed Connections, which has turned succinctly in to a vast trawl of guys in search of someone to smoke meth with and become sexually active, without much long-standing potential to boost one's public status persona. I've known these kinds of people. They do the most inordinate sorts of things to a person, post-date night, as far as aftershocks. There's no... none at all, to little, (just some) chance of securing any type of viable romance on a chance encounter over craigslist. 

          Third, 

    Downtown LA will likely be banging, except that it's going to rain on Thanksgiving Day,

     and the street scene  / bum population out there is largely guys who are leaning some-to-big-lots creepy. Whereas I wouldn't just outright disrespect a person's hard-life circumstances, it ends up amounting to that I myself become targeted and mobbed (sometimes) by some strange and unsociable demographic of people out in downtown LA. Regardless, the most common scenario is to not find a date on an outing in DTLA, at least for a guy like myself, who doesn't go and hit the bar scene. I'm covering the {actual} streets and sidewalks "street scenes" localities of Los Angeles where somebody with a budget as lean as mine could viably find something fun and worthwhile to do, considering that scraping up a date off the street could conceivably happen here, although with vastly short-term prospects.




           Lastly,

    Echo Park is one of the richest cultural nightlife hot spots, running along Sunset Boulevard, near Chinatown. The streets are vibrant with bar and restaurant patrons spilling out in to the streets, a fair amount of homeless people, and miles of this sort of thing, at that. 

    I'll keep this blog updated with what becomes of my Thanksgiving Holiday weekend, hopefully with some positive news!

    How to pick a service provider (or not) for purchasing a new iPhone 11 Pro Max | or a 2019 model iPad (Pro, or other version iPad OS device).

    I stopped in to The Grove in the trendy and entertainment-industry luxe and plush young lifestyle Los Angeles locale around Park La Brea and the Miracle Mile Wilshire District and LACMA | Tar Pits. 


    The thing that really had me awestruck about the outing was my encounter with the iPhone 11 Pro “Max,” which I hadn’t been aware of, prior to showing up at the Apple Store, in and of itself. It seemed to have slipped my awareness in the course of reveling in news about iPad OS for having purchased a 6th generation iPad ver. 7,5 (2018), myself, last month. 


    The difference between the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone 11 Pro is the screen size; 6.5 in. versus 5.9 with the iPhone 11 Pro. Since I had side-by-side options between the related iPhone models at the table featuring these latest release devices, I checked out the iPhone 11 Pro Max version, just to dream a bit and to check out the much-touted three-component high-end camera-trois view-frame compositing with the new “Pro” model high(er)-resolution display [whereas I had been left (previously) thinking that “Pro” would have been good enough, let alone a Pro Max version - now, an even larger display. 

    The functional screen-compositing foray of feature-newish-ness, as for what can be said about the Camera app “quick take” of a user experience inquiry that I had on the device is that it could be likened to the earlier days of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 days, back in the turn of the millenium, on the PowerPC Mac G5s, of which the $1500 video card upgrade was the top-of-the-line upgrade of the pro-series Apple desktops, back then. The higher-end Quadro FX video cards were well-known for their increased pipeline floating-dot ray-tracing of independent objects, and more resolutely independent disparate object lighting and vector-tracing | shading, such that could be represented by the old fireworks screensaver or benchmarking video card system performance tester apps. The higher end graphics cards rendered the fireworks and the after-effects of the flares burning out, beams of flares shooting out, independently, and as designed, by the fireworks manufacturers, imaginably. Such is the feature benefit seen in the triple camera component of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

    While it’s an exciting and compelling tool, undoubtedly; I imagine that finding a sound and rational basis for utilizing the iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max version might seem scant, yet the introduction of the ARkit features, as represented by the Reality Composer app, which is a latest release from Apple for iOS and iPad OS devices, securing a user-basis founded on augmented reality, Physical Internet of Things displays and exhibitions (Geo-Info-Spatial | GIS entries), iBeacons (which still have much to be discovered for the casual mobile device user and proximity-marketing outgoing-explorer consumer, having been introduced to the public in Apple’s 2013 WWDC talks).

    More and more apps are allowing for world-map entries of augmented reality placements and contributions to an at-large or social-networked set of included participants. 

    That being said, it’s a touchy subject to go it as the top-tier buyer-in of a high-end Apple device; I, for one, had formerly been graced with a lease offer from my local Sprint store, yet I’d come to discover that I had ubiquitously strange encounters with strangers, as a backpacking outdoors-regular in my downtown urban metropolitan neighborhood locales and parks. Long story short, I’d been followed by people who were inevitably out for robbing me of my Apple devices, impossible as it is, regardless, to try and crack an owned Apple device, anyhow. 

    Later on, with a month-to-month agreement with T-Mobile, I’d found myself somewhat forgetful, (it had seemed), yet also questionable (as it was, by my account, remembered) - there was some questionable basis on that I had paid for my monthly unlimited services, whereas obviously I would - it’s my iPad unlimited data high-speed access account due each month. The lesson from that one is - make sure that the payment occurs in reasonable accommodation to the coming and passing of payments received (monthly, as it were), in order to not get the device (yet again), stolen from me, as that strange people had been interested in me, with an iPad user outdoorsy identity | persona.

    AT&T or Verizon? I can’t say, for myself, personally, but my stringent belief is that a significantly large proportion of user basis for these devices is welfare-bound, or some other debacle of user-crisis existentialism founded over the purchase and indulgence in; (of) a high-end Apple mobile user device life-lived client | persona “vertical pipelines” new- (no) “next” era user-base basis. 

    If it could be afforded, buy it free and clear from Apple, or from one of the participating retail giants that are competing for those small, hard-earned margins-sales buyers who won’t, or don’t cause problems, or renege their valuation basis. 

    I’ll be sure to cover more of the intricate essential elaborate user-lifestyle accomplishments that could be had by adopting an iOS device in to life lived, at hand, in this day and age.

    Attempting to capture the miniature J’acque-ielle-uffalope on photograph after a cock-tarded start to a banger trading day (update to come).

    The latest cocq-tard’ed kitsch thing of the moment is a nuclear watershed fuzz closet scrum-bwix*stchkies^~£<_>^ hard-tack pigeon-biscuit (hard-timin’) folio, of some future-generations AI-tech cloud-print materials-ulterior quantum-“heres-and-nows” scala-sorts of risk-assessment data exhibits visualizations, of that I now have the means to capture such creatures-almoste, like an aspiration to become a vegan, yet be graced with a valid, yet urban, and authentic finery’s establishment of a long-bespoken cultural underpinning to surmise its indisputable, humble offering. 


    The Jack-a-luffalope, in standard American minds, becomes delineated by its visual form as the lowest and least most common denominator - both base and treble are ostensible cultivar aspirations of the Indo-European-Germanic-Classically Latin etymologies and evolutionary possibilities - it could either have been printed in to a beetle (potato-affined; “potato beetle,” as I’ve discovered, or it could have become a meaty bold ranges and tundras work-bison, with many more evolutions and interventions in play. 

    The jackrabbit is the ostensible Adonis youthful breadwinner in this one of many bits and scattered scrummy pieces of all sorts of stuff in the scrum - closet: for technical analysis and scholarly delimination of “from out of a trash-dive closet,” - I still haven’t cleaned up, fully, but I’d assert that I gathered valuables, from the dumpsters, etc., and that many people were simply not raised quite as well as I was, and it’s upsetting the higher ups and potential institutional entity chippers of whatever small cultural means that they might see towards my beneficiary unto myself, for picking up pennies, etc. hmmm...

    Anyways, I’ll follow up on my pidginHub.app blog of transliterative creoles-vested niches of publication, about some of the more integrated discrete forms that come to light in the greater socioeconomic forays (chaotically-macro), yet within he scale of one day of (commonly) modern-day trauma, as it had come to be known, the integral formative entities that I’ve dug up, in a day of meted-research and development aux-relevànce on market bangers this week, and of today... 

    I’ll leave it at that.

    A cool new tech project - the self-lighting lightbulb apparatus.

    I came across this video on YouTube, after eyeing over some Fox Video news clips. 

    It shows how someone can come up with a self-lighting lightbulb apparatus using simple technology - some wires, a loose speaker, a spark plug, and a lightbulb.

    Thanks, Share Tech, for sharing this with us!

    Is KISS playing tonight in DTLA?

    Someone supposed of as Gene Silmons asked who the "social worker of the year was,"

    It seemed to have developed in to an unsober lashing out at the law; I suppose with untold amounts of lives disparaged - here; it would be mine (perhapd others are offended as well).

    The man did notably sing about pidgy bwipp this and that... For a long refrain. 

    He spoke about the fires in Downtown Los Angeles yedterday morning. About many depraved things on account of me not doung even more than I podsibly could have done about anything; whereas I tried to be q bit sociable, regardless og my solitude. 

    Latest post.

      This flock of pigeons hadn't always lived here, which is curious, because I could trace back to days of pigeon-feeding that I'd do...
