So What's Up With That ?

I'm officially starting a  New Reinventing the Ordinary Segment.
What's Up With That?
Yeah ... there's a few things I need you to explain to me.


1.   Instagram

 I don't get it.   Am I missing something?   I bought an expensive camera ...
that I couldn't afford ...  to create better photographs
 Now everybody's "insta-gramming."
 Seriously ... do y'all think most Instagram pics look that good


 Maybe my eyes are bad ... well yes ... my eyes are bad ... but help me out.
What is the Instagram appeal?
Why am I working so hard figuring out all those buttons on my Nikon?




2.  Comic Sans Haters
What's all the broo-ha-ha?   (Okay I know that's not how you actually spell that word.)
 Some people can actually be insulted or disgusted if you use a certain font.
I'm not naming any names ... but someone whose name rhymes with "SPY" told me ...
"Absolutely never use comic sans!".
 How can a font evoke such emotion?  It's not like the letters are dripping with blood or anything.



3.  Font Police ... ALL CAPS

And while we're on the font-ish type subject ... why can't I type in  ALL CAPS?
 I'M NOT ANGRY.  WHO MADE THAT RULE UP?
MAYBE MY CAP LOCK BUTTON IS STUCK.
MAYBE IT'S EASIER FOR ME TO READ.
YEAH ... DID YA EVER THINK ABOUT THAT
 I TOLD YOU MY EYES WERE BAD.
 (For those with short memory on this ... see #1)

 Who makes up these "Font Rules"?




4.  Google +
What's the deal with Google + ?  
What are  "photos from my circles"  ...   why can't I rearrange my albums?
 Just when I figure out how one thing works ... they go and upgrade or downgrade or whatever.
Are you guys ... my friends ...  gonna be there in March 
...  do I have to go back and find you all again?
 Will you still come back to me?  
I don't get it.
Aaaarg ... what do I have to do
 Next you're going to tell me Facebook's gonna change ... that'll never happen.



5. Picnik

 Ok ... just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water ...
Picnik is ending?    What's up with that??? 
 So where are my pictures going?  Where will I edit my photos ?
 (Not that they ever need editing.)
Ok ... does Google just own everything?  
Ah never mind ... Picnik drives me crazy sometimes anyway.

___________________________________

Now don't get me wrong.  I'm not trying to insult anyone who uses ... 
endorses ... or loves these items.

I genuinely don't get it!
Really ... you can't be that surprised.   I am over 30 ... darn it!


I'm reaching out to the my blog-reading public. 
 Can you help me out?

There.  Now I feel better.  I've vented ...  and now I feel better.
This is real therapy.  I'm going to make this a regular feature.
Maybe on Thursdays ... that's it ...
Therapy Thursdays.


You got answers?  Let me have em ... be nice   :)

Instagram is for the iPhone, so I believe that people are using it because so many people have an iPhone now. I know I use it because it takes the pictures from my phone and automatically uploads them to any social network of my choice. I think people use it because it's easier then taking a picture and then uploading it every time? I don't know...it's just one less step.
The only thing worse then the font police is the grammar police.
And I am a little sad about piknic only because it made things so much easier to make "blog buttons". Boooo

SOOOOOO FUNNNY (ooops ALL CAPS) ツ

you really have a gift - I smiled all the way through. By the way, I found you doing a google search for "what's up sith that" nice job with your - well I won't use the three letters beginning with SE ..........and ending with O - (I don't want you to think I'm spammer trolling for those three little letters) You ranked quite nicely in google images and were the only words with ummph.

Anyway I used your picture in my post today - of course with a source link. If you want me to remove it let me know.
