Today’s offering for the Blackcat Book Club is another novel by Stephen King. This time it’s the follow-up novel to The Shining.
Today I review one of the worst movies ever made. ‘Nuff said.
Starting today, I think I’m gonna jump on the bandwagon as far as doing some Throwback Thursday posts on the blog. And what I plan to do is to post some videos from early in my YouTube career that I did not initially post to the blog when I first uploaded the video to YouTube. It’s an opportunity for newcomers to see my earlier work and might offer some nostalgia to longtime viewers as well.
For my first Throwback Thursday video, I am posting the first of two surviving videos from when I first attempted to do news videos back in 2009. It was to be a news segment that I called “The Black Cat Weekly” where I told the news basically like normal Internet people tell it: Report the news then follow it up with snarky remarks. I had done five videos in all but unfortunately my venture into news proved to be unpopular and I took down all except for two videos.
Among some of the stories I talked about in the video included a Tunisian woman made an outrageous claim that she was pregnant with twelve kids just to get on television that was ultimately proven to be a hoax as well as a piece on the Pan Am Flight 103 bomber being released from prison on account of the fact that he was dying and so on.
But the one story that actually ended up becoming the main story of the video was a local story I did on a gay teen who sued Mohawk School District (it has since merged with the Ilion School District) because the faculty there did not do enough to protect him from bullies. In the wake of the story, my video got circulated and there were other videos made about this topic. I even got a comment from the kid thanking me for getting his story out. I originally did the story simply because it was news and gay rights is a pretty important topic these days. But when you get comments like that, it makes you realize that you made a difference. And that’s a good thing. He won his suit against Mohawk and changed schools.
So anyway, hope you enjoy the video and next Thursday I will be posting the other surviving Black Cat Weekly video.
In the meantime the links to the stories I used are here:

For today’s vlog, which is based on a project I did for Voice and Diction class, we’ve got a little hard-hitting story for you, because today we are going to ask the question: Why do American men go for foreign women for lasting relationships? I am sure the answer will shock you immensely.
If you have been involved in the dating game in America, you will almost certainly have heard the terms, “Nice guys finish last,” “All girls want jerks,” and “Girls only want the nice guys when they’ve already wasted the best years of their lives with bad boys and when they’ve hit their late 20’s and 30’s and their looks are gone and they have five kids with five different men” and so on and so forth. And the dating game in today’s society is clearly stacked against men especially those in their early 20’s. Women in their early 20’s have their pick from any guy as long as they’re exciting, good-looking, rich, and basically an all-around jerk because women like a challenge as they try to reform the bad boy and failing horribly. Then after they’ve gone through the roller coaster ride with every bad boy they can find, then they say that they want to settle down and marry the nice guy.
However, they don’t marry the nice guy for love. They do it because they want a provider and a savior for her and whatever kids she may have as a result of her past. And if that doesn’t work, there is a thing called no-fault divorces where the woman takes the guy to court and takes half his earnings and anything else she takes goes for child support, even if the child is not his to begin with.
And in the end, the women who have routinely rejected and ignored the nice guys while they were in their prime now ask the question: “Where have all the good guys gone?” Well, I’ll tell you where they’ve gone. For those who haven’t given in to a life of forced loneliness or given up and taken one of these bad women, they’ve gone to Russia, Ukraine, the Philippines, Asia, South America… You see a pattern emerging here? That’s right, folks. Men have decided to leave the US to find foreign women for lasting relationships and marriage.
Now what is the attraction between American men and foreign women? Well, according to a blog site I came across called LovedByHer.com, the reasons why men go for foreign women are mainly based on their exotic beauty, intelligence, class, dedication to family, loyalty to their spouses and their desire to look their best for their mates. That along with the fact that in many of the countries that American men are flocking to, the ratio of eligible women to men is significantly higher due to wars and civil unrest. And foreign women do not care about wealth and they don’t care if the men are American or not.
My experiences with foreign women who have come to America have been fairly good. I found that I can relate to them a lot more than I can American women. In fact, I brought up a story about how I almost went out with a Ukrainian woman who was part of a subcontract group that did maintenance at my job during my early days there. I’m not sure what happened to her because I haven’t seen her in years, but my experiences with her have been positive.
And a lot of the Ukrainian women that have contacted me on the Internet, most recently on a dating site I discovered called Anastasiadate.com, I got more letters from women on that site (many of whom are from Ukraine) than I ever have from an American woman on okcupid.com and the many other dating sites I belong to. It’s refreshing that the only problem I have to encounter on that site (apart from the usual fees for certain services and you know how I feel about that) is who to reply to first because they’re all so beautiful, very sincere and of all the women that have ever messaged me on the Internet, they have the best pickup lines I have ever heard.
The fact that American men, most notably nice guys who have been rejected repeatedly by American women are finding true love with foreign women is causing American women to freak out. They start saying that “Oh, you can’t get with foreign women. They only want to use you so they can get a green card;” “Oh, they’re gold diggers;” and “You’re just looking in the wrong places. You should date us regardless of our past.” As far as to whether American women are right or not, that while there are some foreign women who actually are out to scam men to get a green card, that population is decidedly minor. The truth is that American women will say just about anything to prevent their alleged “future disposable providers” from leaving to go to another country to find true love somewhere else. The truth is the reason that American men are leaving the country is because American women let us go with their rejection of us for being too nice, treating women with respect and other good traits that American women find reprehensible in good guys that they don’t find reprehensible in jerks. And now American women have to live with it.
So in conclusion, as long as American men can find happiness and not limit it to America then more power to them. In fact, I think I might jump on the bandwagon and get a foreign girl myself. Sorry, American ladies. That’s the way it is. See what you reduced us to?
