Is anybody else embarrassed by how computer illiterate they are?? Or is it just me.
I honestly cannot believe how something that you know, 10 year olds can operate, such as posting videos to their YouTube channels I find so challenging? Like seriously, what is wrong with my brain. It really shakes my confidence to the core. It seems like it is such a straightforward simple thing to do: Make a video, post video to existing YouTube channel. But somehow it is not. I had to wait until Craig and Brianna came over for dinner so that Craig could save the day. Which he so effortlessly and gallantly did; “just like that” no stress, no freaking out, just figured out why our video was posting to the wrong YouTube account.
If it weren’t for him being so clever at figuring all that out, combined with Dominique who uploaded it iMovie, then edited it, she even added music, animation, and titles; she’s a genius; I would still be attached to my laptop trying to sort that out. But she did the tough bit, and as it turns out my portion of our project is the easiest part of the entire process. Show up and talk. Hand over the video to her so that she can do all the crafty, techy stuff, and then I’m meant to simply post the video to my already existing YouTube channel, Shantelle Bisson, which I hope you’re all subscribed to, because the first video EVER of our new YouTube “show” Talk That Talk is NOW LIVE. Our first hot topic is Sending Nudes, and D*#k pics…are they a YES or are they a NO. Watch to find out which one of us thinks what’s okay and what isn’t. Fingers crossed that I remember all that Craig taught me so that posting next week isn’t so challenging. Tech Gods help me please.
In closing I just want to say that there is a second thing that is causing me to hmmm all over the place today, and that is how is it that the our city council here in Toronto have seen one of their brilliant schemes and dreams finally come to fruition. King Street is officially closed to the driving public. WOW. WOW. WOW. Good one guys. I for one can assure you that I will never set foot west of Avenue/University Road again. Well at least I won’t be seen there for the next twelve months while they circle jerk themselves into traffic chaos with this pilot project.
For the life of me I don’t understand why they simply didn’t make Queen Street a one way East bound and King Street a one way running West??? Why, oh why they thought closing a major downtown artery, that is the hub of our financial and theatre district was a good idea I will never, ever understand.
Best of luck to all the people who now have no choice but to get caught up in that extra downtown traffic gridlock five days a week while they go into work to make money to pay their bills and live their lives. I guess one thing is for sure they’ll all be spending a whole lot more of their lives in their cars, idling, creating emissions, and polluting the planet. Such a well thought out idea city planners, bravo one and all. Insert eye roll here.
So the TTC riders are for it, the shop owners are not. The cyclists are for it, but the drivers are not. Taxis are allowed to drive on King Street between 10pm-5am but Uber drivers are not. I swear, I hope I’m wrong but I predict a lot of independent restaurant owners and shop owners are going to be going out of business during this pilot project. Because TTC riders are going from point A-point B, as are cyclists; are COMMUTING they’re not jumping off to go have lunch, dinner, shop or go to the theater. I guess only time will tell what the actual fall out of this attempt to expedite TTC travel while fucking with every single driver on the road as they do it.
May the traffic Gods be with all of you who must be downtown to earn your livings. Buckle up, you’re all in for a much longer daily commute my friends, which I for one, am so sorry about.
