Maybe Daily Episode 22: Now that’s just bad storytelling

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 22. In today’s episode we delve into a story I came across which feels oddly representative of the current youth. It has all the hallmarks of terrible storytelling.

The story does serve to make some parallels to real life and how we behave as a society. This is not a rant episode despite the ranty tone at times. I’m just saying words, if some words hurt you it feels like it’s a “you” problem.

Maybe Daily Episode 21: Faker than Victor Newman

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 21. It’s pretty much a coming of age episode, the first legal one. At least in the US where our hero of the day Victor Newman is from. And yet he is fake, like so many narratives getting pushed upon us but let’s take things lightly. No reason not to chill. See nonsense? Point at it, laugh, then move on. Makes life so much easier. And no this isn’t the message of this episode so you still have to listen.

Maybe Daily Episode 20: A short Londoner rant

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 20. Not quite publishing daily but still better than a half-year gap as the last episode came out last week. In this one, I’m ranting about a letter I received from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, mostly because the only thing I trust from it is that we will pay more taxes.

I also mention trying to hold my swearing a bit to prepare a live radio appearance which happened later that evening. The show is called “Censorship Sucks Roundtable Radio Show” from February 9th, 2022. I don’t have the archive of the episode yet but will share it on the website when I get it.

That being said I hope you enjoy this episode and check out my first ever radio appearance.

Maybe Daily Episode 19: Likewise Brightstar, likewise

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 19. Months passed so this one starts with a tiny life update before jumping in between Likewise’s cheeks. Likewise, formerly known as Brightstar is an insurance company providing phone insurance among other things. They serve as providers for Barclays, Vodafone and Natwest among others.

The story is crazy and drives the rant through the whole episode so I won’t spoil it here considering I went without a script. But don’t you always go without script JD? I hear you say. Well, yes but this one does that even harder. No notes, just nigh raw unfiltered ranting. Hope you’ll appreciate it and hope to see you soon.

Maybe Daily Episode 17: Git good or GTFO

Welcome to Maybe Daily episode 17. About a day after publishing the last episode, I had a few issues around new git repositories directly connected to some identity politics that snuck into software development all the way to the team that manages a software most developers use thus breaking tools that have existed for decades.

And yes I am wearing my 2018 Hacktoberfest bragging rights shirt here.

Maybe Daily Episode 14: Making women sports great again

Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 14. In today’s episode, I will talk about that executive order the newest US president signed and why it can make women sports entertaining again by making them more manly. You can’t make this up and I hope we will see some interesting developments out of this story. If they keep coming I’ll keep recording. Even if they don’t I’ll find something else to ramble about until I can have guests again.

Maybe Daily Episode 13: Black lives matter

Welcome back to Maybe Daily episode 13. In today’s episode, we’re catching up. It’s been way too long since I published the last MD. Coming back on my recording schedule, it seems like episode 13 should have been about Kevin Hart. Looks like I wrote a draft and forgot about it. Him getting pulled off the Oscars, his new special, etc. However, this one may be more interesting for you to listen to as we tackle BLM. “Black lives matter”, a rallying cry to fight injustice especially against black people. Or so you’d think, however, black people seem to receive more abuse from BLM supporters than from the traditionally accepted racists with a different skin tone.

Interestingly enough, for the first time ever, I received what one would call racist abuse if it came from a white person. However, one would not call it racist because black people did it. I finally joined the BLM’ coons club alongside the likes of Kanye West, Candace Owens, Terry Crews and others. Not the worst club to be a part of when you consider the members. I will obviously wear this as a badge of honour until I die, or at least until I forget this ever happened, whichever comes first.

While it came from a place of hatred, these people inspired me not only to record a podcast months after the last one but also to a poem I recite at the end of the episode:

Black lives matter unless you think for yourself, no diversity of thought it’s sus
We have a dream where black, whites, latinos, chinese jump on our single think bus
We will chastise and shame if you don’t look nor think nor behave exactly like us
Making up a symbol to group a bunch of nothing, a gesture, any real help is surplus

People worried about matching their coats with a BLM sign to look good
Focusing their energy on getting attention rather than acting good
Something wicked this way came, shrieked and ruined everyone’s mood
Claiming to share a dream of equality while spitting where MLK stood

We don’t know one another, have no idea what each went through
Screaming, scratching away the hate seems so strong in you
Looking for answers, becoming a victim, these lies tricked you
This poison you drink, the poison you share, this will be the end of you

You missed the tolerance lesson we all got from Lilo & Stitch
Going around talking such a big game but no-show on the pitch
You turn out to be the racist you claim to hate and that’s rich
Look in the mirror, my hair and my thoughts are my own, bitch
