For What Is Worth

Posted by ridor9th on June 24, 2009

I have produced a couple of entries on another blogsite.

Here are the links:

So It Really Happened

Perez Deserves It?  Wrong.

I’ll phase this out in favor of this new blogsite.  And you should.

Oh, by the way, you can find me on twitter.com/ridor9th.  I’m always there.  I’m still nasty as usual.

Plus, there is always vlogging on my youtube.com profile.

Posted by ridor9th on May 25, 2009

I’m appalled that Jeanette Johnson of The Deaf Edge, also known as DeafPundit recorded and saved the video clip of a certian individual whom showed her friends mooning at Barry Sewell.

Here is my vlog response to Jeanette Johnson’s antics.

House, Nick Jonas & DVTV Crap

Posted by ridor9th on April 29, 2009

Golly, I saw House MD on Fox TV last Monday.  God, it was awful show.  The one-hour long program was such a torture!  Heck, the Army can use it as a tool to torture Talibans out in Pakistan these days!

The actor that acted as the Deaf wrestler — what is his name?!  He reminded me of Matt Damon and he’s fucking cute!  I know, I know he’s probably straight but who cares?  I just wanted to know his name!

As for the doctor who ordered his staff to borgize the deaf wrestler when the deaf wrestler made it clear that he does not want the implants in the first place was appalling and terrifying.

And god!  The fucking writers used the deaf patient’s mother to interpret!  What the fuck were the fucking writers thinking about?!

These writers should be exterminated at once!

And in the end, the mother literally forced her son to accept the implants.

After all, the tale ends with him being assimilated.  Just like the Borg Queen insisted all along.

Oh, guess what?  Last night, I had a bizarre dream but it was pretty good one, though — ever heard of Jonas Brothers?  I frequently see them on PerezHilton.com and Disney Channel — I’m not a fan of Jonas Brothers mainly because I don’t give a shit about music, really.  But I admitted that I have an eye candy — I do enjoy looking at people — especially if they’re attractive.

I cringe at the boys below 21 — mainly because they have so much to learn to reach the level where I am right now.  So often I’d dismiss the ones below 21 — they literally waste my time.

But I always thought Nick Jonas is attractive.

Then for the first time in a long time, I had Nick Jonas in my dream.  He and I had a date where we went out to dine at a local pizzeria just to chat.  And in my dream, I was surprised to see Nick conversing in ASL.   We talked about things in life and bullshit like that.

Then someone woke me up at that point.  I started to wonder about Nick Jonas’ age so I googled it — he’s 16!  Ack!  Get out of here!

But the best part?  I wondered why Nick signed to me in my dream.  After reading Nick Jonas’ background — I was stunned to learn that his mother was a former sign language teacher in Dallas.

Oy!

Oh, yeah, I have twitter account.  Find me over there if you dare.

On other hand, the drama continues on DVTV — Tayler Mayer must be proud of himself for allowing the pea-brained fool in Barry Sewell to attack, bash and twist people’s comments on DVTV.  But at least there is something good out of this — more and more people are starting to see the true colors of Barry Sewell and his cohorts.

Oh, gawd.  Don’t get me started on this about HarleyLady or whatever her name is.  She is practically ordering others to submit to her whims.  HarleyLady, here’s a quick fact:  You’re hideous thing to look at on DVTV!

Cheers,

I’ll Scream Later

Posted by ridor9th on April 24, 2009

I went to a local bookstore to skim the latest book by Marlee matlin.  No, I did not buy the book but yes, I finished reading it in 2 hours at the bookstore.

Boy, Matlin is one big drama queen.  I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Among some interesting information:

She was molested by a neighborhood female babysitter.  Female! She was taken advantage by a teacher at a local high school who also cheated on his wife as well.

William Hurt and she frequently engaged in physical confrontations — that was one lame-assed and tiresome tale throughout the book.  I’m like, “Just.  Fucking.  Dump.  Him.  Already!”

Just like Deaf people needs to dump the fucktard Barry Sewell.

I’m surprised that Marlee Matlin chose not to mention the birthday fiasco caused by Terrylene whom barged in Matlin’s surprise party to blast her for not inviting her in the first place.  Actually, it was Ken Elks who organized the party but he neglected to include Terrylene who in the process blamed Matlin.  This is one of several infamous rumors in Los Angeles that I heard of.

I thought Marlee was an outstanding actress from day one.  So when William Hurt took a swipe at her that she needs to go to NYU to study in acting few hours after she won the Oscars.  Ouch!  That was pathetic of Hurt to do that.

Yes, it is true that I absolutely hated Matlin’s selection of a dress which she wore to pick up the Best Actress Award — it was hideous and she eventually landed on the Worst Dressed List.  Next time, dump the glasses, Marlee!

It was quite touching to read about Marlee’s relationship with Henry Winkler.  It appears that Henry kinda became Marlee’s surrogate father when she lived in Los Angeles.  The sight of him tumbling down the stairs in his underwear must be something else to see!  Lucky her.

Did you know that when Marlee and Richard Dean Anderson chatted, he asked her to sit with him under the dining table, just to chat with her?!  That’s pretty unique and cool, is it?!

The book is truly charming.  But there is always buts, right?

For years, I always felt that Marlee’s so-called best friend, manager and interpreter, Jack Jason, himself CODA has manipulated, controlled and steered Marlee’s life around the world.  There was something about Jack Jason that my guts was warning me from day one.  For years, my guts said that Jack Jason is not exactly the professional interpreter — he’s in to control her life completely.

After reading the book, I’m convinced that yes, Jack Jason is controlling Marlee from day one.  My guts said that Jack Jason has supplied Marlee with one-sided view of things within Hollywood and Deaf Community.  And after reading the book, it was confirmed.

You know how it goes with the CODAs, they tend to take over and control the situations out of their bad habits with their parents and it was evident that Marlee gathered the majority of information about Deaf people through Jack Jason.

What Marlee needs to do is to phase Jack Jason out of her life or minimize Jack’s manipulations, at least.

Oh, when Marlee was interviewed on CBS’ Early Morning or whatever — did you see this African-American anchorwoman telling Jack Jason that Marlee does not need to know about what she said to the viewers regarding the next topic when they shall cover after returning from the commercials?  Robin Roberts, the African-American anchorwoman, was telling Jack Jason that Marlee does not need to know what she was going to speak to the viewers about the next segment!  Don’t you get it, folks?

I’m surprised that Marlee did not get offend by that and there was no uproar from Deaf people all over the country about what this anchorwoman said to Marlee.

I guess, we were too busy watching Barry Sewell attacking Ella Mae Lentz repeatedly, eh?

Shameful.

What of Luke Adams?

Posted by ridor9th on April 21, 2009

I’m not a fan of The Amazing Race. Once in a while, whenever I get bored, I watch it.  But since it comes at the same time with The Family Guy — I tend to watch the Griffiths over The Amazing Race.

Since Gay Boy Ritchie has disappeared off the map from BRAVO’s Janice Dickinson’s Modelling Agency and Marlee Matlin is promoting her book, I’ll Scream Later — having Deaf people on tube is still scarce these days.  So it was refreshing to see Luke Adams and Margaret Adams competing on a reality-based TV show, The Amazing Race.

Luke is Deaf and graduated from Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind in Colorado Springs, Colorado — Colorado Springs is the hotbed of religious fanaticism, just take a good look at Ted Haggard and James Dobson, really but I digress.

Luke’s mother, Margaret Adams, is hearing.  She really cannot sign very well.  But she basically signs and voice at the same time which made me cringe to no end.

Luke expresses his desire to be a “role model” for others which I disagreed.  He is not even a good role model to start with, really.  He’s one incredibly spoiled brat on the show but he’s one of the most entertaining and competitive person on the show.

The Amazing Race has challenges and obstacles which each group gets to complete the tasks — sometimes, there are options where you use it to your advantages by derailing other contestants.  I was informed that in the last four seasons, no groups has used the blind u-turn trick on others.  No one did until Luke did.  Luke-Margie (Some coined them as Lu-gie, though, on some message boards!) was the first group that used the blind u-turn trick which derailed another group into being eliminated.

My reaction?  Good for Luke and Margie — they are not in to make friends.  They are in to win $1,000,000.00!  Use your fucking common sense!!  There is no time to befriend and pant like a dog — it is dog eat dog world!

However, there are scenes where Luke tricked others by saying that a gorilla was signing — prompted the hearing contestants trying to figure out what the gorilla was trying to say.  It was so funny.  Not only that, there was a scene in Episode 9 which Luke and an African-American contestant, Jen collided at the clue box.  Jen attempted to push her hands over Luke’s left shoulder which prompted Luke to elbow her to give him space.

Jen backed off but she signed, “Bitch!” at Luke which surprised me completely.

That bitch is appalling, is it?  Luke apparently did not see what Jen said but Margie told Luke in the car that Jen was signing the word.  Needless to say, Luke was incensed.

Lakisha & Jen conspired to piss Luke off and to make him look bad in front of everyone else on CBS and they managed to do that nicely as there was another clue box which Luke crashed into Jen’s back and it was so dramatic.

Later, the Host of The Amazing Race, Phil tried to sort the physical confrontation between Lakisha/Jen & Luke/Margie — When Jen spoke her side of the story, Luke listened.  When Luke started to sign, Jen snickered — it was obvious that this bitch was sneering at Luke all along which prompted Luke to walk away and signed, “You bitch!” at Jen/Lakisha.

Luke is right — Jen and Lakisha are bitches.

The preview of the Episode 10 appears to show that Jen & Lakisha may be eliminated because there is an obstacle that requires them to swim — and one of these bitches are deathly terrified of water.

I hope they get eliminated in the next episode — or better yet, I hope they drown!

However, it is distressing to note that there are many threads on CBS.com’s The Amazing Race message boards which was created against Luke Adams.  They called him spoiled, immature, childish, evil, sinister, slut to name few.  It is quite amazing.

And Luke still wants to be a role model?  Nah, I don’t think so, honey!

But the positive thing about Lu-gie is that I wanted them to win $1 million.  I still wanted them to win.  There are only 4 groups left and Lu-gie are still in it.

What do you think of Luke, Margie and the whole fiasco on The Amazing Race?  I hate to say that this show is much better than CBS’ Survivor which one Deaf contestant, Christy Smith, appeared briefly.

Interlude: Cavaliers 83, Lady Volunteers 82

Posted by ridor9th on November 18, 2008

abouttime

Finally, the monkey is off my back!

No. 16 Virginia Cavaliers has exorcised the demons by beating No. 5 Tennessee Lady Volunteers on its home court in Knoxville, Tennessee, 83-82.

Never mind the fact that the Lady Volunteers are inexperienced with six freshmen and 4 sophomores.  The Cavaliers also missed 3 experienced players whom did not suit up for various reasons.  Not only that, the Cavaliers relied heavily on 4 freshmen as well.

In the last 5 trips to Knoxville, the Cavaliers were 0-5.  But not this time, Virginia’s Monica Wright had 35 points and was virtually unstoppable as she willed the team to shock the Lady Volunteers in front of more than 11,000 spectators.  It was Tennessee’s 19th home loss since 1987 and Virginia officially joined the elite club whom has beaten Tennessee in Knoxville:  Auburn, Stanford, Connecticut, Texas, Florida, Duke, Louisiana State and Louisiana Tech.

Way to go, Cavaliers!

Now I can sleep in peace, folks!

Cheers,

5: What’s Up With HOVRS’ MVP?

Posted by ridor9th on November 17, 2008

After GoAmerica swallowed HOVRS and Verizon TRS, they did not stop as they went on their way to purchase two major interpreting agencies in Washington, DC area in an attempt to control the interpreters from working for other VRS companies.

Yes, HOVRS bought Sign Language Associates (SLA) and Visual Language Interpreting (VLI).  To me, it is a brilliant strategic move on GoAmerica’s part in an attempt to control and suffocate the competitors from getting more interpreters to work for their companies.  For your information, SLA has offices in Denver, Tampa, Richmond (Va) and Frederick (Md) as well.

However, HOVRS has been drumming up the beat about its so-called Mobile Video Phone also known as MVP at many functions including DeafNation Expos and ASLExpo for the last couple of years.

I think the lingering question on everyone’s mind is:  When?

HOVRS has claimed that its MVP is better than Viable’s VPAD and VPAD Plus, CSDVRS’ The Z and so on.  But none of us has yet to *see* the equipment out in full force.

HOVRS has dispatched the employees to woo Deaf customers all over the place — cyberspace and in person to talk about MVP.  They went on to trash Viable of their VPADs repeatedly.

Yes, Viable VPAD is not perfect.  But that is why they named the Viable VPAD as Beta version — the original purpose of Beta version is to give the VPADs to the customers so that Viable could hear the feedbacks to weed and fix the glitches that may come with the VPAD itself.

Listen carefully — Viable VPAD was designed and funded by whom?  Deaf people.  Then they gave it to the customers to test and play around and throw feedbacks to Viable in order to enhance the 2nd part:  Viable VPAD Plus.

Makes sense, right?

HOVRS has yet to release MVP in the last couple of years.  They already talked about how good it is — how better it is than VPAD — how it will trumpets VPAD and The Z — and they had NOT gotten around to release the damned piece in the first place!

Don’t you think it is audacity of HOVRS to trash Viable repeatedly at events about its product when they had not released its own god-damned MVP in the first place?

It was supposed to release about two years ago, then it got delayed.  Then delayed.  The last time I heard was that they planned to release it in 2009.

Perhaps, they found many glitches in this particular product that they had to delay the release of MVP all along?

But that does not stop them from traashing VRS companies’ products repeatedly — especially with Viable VPAD and Viable VPAD Plus.  HOVRS may deny the allegations that they trash-talked about Viable VPAD but one can view this particular video where HOVRS’ Jonathan Hughes has talked about how MVP is better than VPAD starting at 5:34.

Frankly, let’s face the reality here:  Viable 2, HOVRS 0.

Viable, is small VRS company run of, by and for Deaf people, has already released not one but two products:  VPAD and VPAD Plus.  VPAD, as expected, went through the trial period where they received enormous feedbacks from the customers and in the process, they have upgraded the VPAD.  So far, it has improved and satisfied the customers in the process.

VPAD Plus is the 2nd product that includes the wifi service and browser as well.

Again, both products were designed and funded by whom?  Deaf individuals.

As for HOVRS’ MVP, which is owned by GoAmerica with millions of dollars in profits?  The MVP was not designed by Deaf people.  In fact, they collected the feedbacks and turned to a contractor to design and manufacture — I heard it was LeadTek Corporation — which, as of today, is still fixing the glitches which has been delaying the product from day one.

What alarmed me the most lately is the antics that HOVRS has been doing to the customers — they are telling the customers that if they wanted free MVP, they need to register for HOVRS on its website and to make sure that they use HOVRS in to be ranked on some list in order to get the MVP.

This is shrewd move on HOVRS’ part in an attempt to rack the minutes to make money off from FCC.  I received several emails and VP calls from Deaf friends who said that they were contacted by HOVRS employees telling them that they need to register and start calling HOVRS in order to be “ranked” on the HOVRS’ list in order to get MVP!

I personally suspected the main reason why the HOVRS is doing this is to rack up the minutes in order to get the funds from FCC in order to compensate the company that is correcting the glitches with MVP which they are dealing with so far.

But there is no proof as of now.  It is all about speculations.  The whole thing is that people who lives in glass houses should not throw stones.  You see, HOVRS trashed Viable’s products and they had no product to start with.

Get this picture?  Tsk, tsk!

Cheers,

7: What Really Happened On DeafVIDEO.TV

Posted by ridor9th on October 29, 2008

Boy, this entry is going to be long.

It shall contain a vlog, several email correspondences between me and Tayler Mayer and my thoughts on the subject.

I got banned from DeafVIDEO.TV without a warning.  Which is quite interesting and surprising. It is fine with me as of now. In fact, I do not regard DeafVIDEO.TV as an important venue to check on a daily basis.  It is a hysterical place to check whenever I’m bored.

Why?

It is an open secret that DeafVIDEO.TV (also known as DVTV) seems to attract the fringe of the Deaf Communities at large.  They seem to attract the ones that wants to talk about stuff that nobody really cared about.  Talk about Christianity, Deaf jokes, ghosts and all that trash that is not going to stimulate your mind.

The fringe of the Deaf Communities — by that, I mean the truly bad and horrible vloggers at its best trying to grab some kind of attention by touching on issues that they do not know enough (except for few ones like IronGal27, LChaim2007, DeafRedBear, DeafOIC, JonLenois — they are the ones that made me giggle, snicker and laugh out loud!) to a point where I cringe at their attempts to discuss. Why?  Because they often fucked it up.

It is always amusing to see people fingerspelling “LOL” instead of going “ha ha” with their facial expressions, really!

There are several vloggers on DVTV whom are there to go after deaf-related organizations in an attempt to run them into ground — many of you knew Barry Sewell (on DVTV, he used the pseudo-name as DRHocokan).  He is the same man who went after Deaf Bilingual Coalition (DBC) in an attempt to hijack the organization to meet his own expectations. When I disagreed with Barry, you cannot believe the numbers of emails, IMs and vlog responses on DVTV whom people has attacked me from the time I started to disagree with Barry Sewell!  Unfortunately, many of them are removed after my profile was banned.

There was an incident where I made a compliment to a certain vlogger that I thought he was cute and too bad, he was straight.  Nothing bad, really.  Barry Sewell seized this moment as to accuse me of sexual harassment.  What the fuck is that?

The more information I got from people about Barry Sewell is quite interesting.  He is Mormon.  That explains everything else.  I also learned that he married a 17 years old girl when he was in late 20s or early 30s.  And that he completely ruled his family with an ironfist which explained why you do not see his wife at all via the vlogs.  I also got information regarding the failed investments which Barry was alleged to swindle the thousands of dollars from his Deaf friends.

It was true enough that Barry nearly destroyed the InterTribal Deaf Council (IDC), the organization that serves the Deaf Natives across the United States.  In fact, it was so bad that several officers of the IDC including Judy Stout (She was fantastic when she introduced the Utes to bless the athletes during the opening ceremony of Winter Deaflympics in Salt Lake City) has abruptly resigned.

Why abruptly resigned?

Barry has attempted to get these fine people to be fired from their employment by writing letters to their employment.  He did the same with several DBC leaders last summer, I believe.

Barry also got the Department of Justice involved with the IDC to force the organization to open their records to Barry Sewell. First IDC, second DBC and third NAD?  That appears to be the case.

Which brings me to the subject on DVTV.  There was this haggardly woman who vlogged about NAD & CI — I do not know her full name but her DVTV name is HarleyGirl248.  Trust me, she is nowhere close to be viewed as a girl.

On her couple of DVTV vlogs, she derided the NAD for not doing “enough”.  It turns out that she indicated that she has not been a member of NAD for more than 30 years. Wait a minute!  She is complaining and yet, she is not a member?  There is a famous phrase:  People who lives in glass houses should not throw stones.

Needless to say, I defended the NAD on her vlog by responding back and forth.  Soon hereafter, HarleyGirl248 made a vlog indicating that she won’t open and view my vlog responses because of my “reputation”, not because what I can provide the different views — that is when I started to ridicule her as HarleyHag from that point on.

Needless to say, HH was not happy.  I guess the truth hurts.  I mean, look at her.  Eew!  Her face and body reeks of bitter, demeanor and exhausted of hate-consumed from day one, it appears to be like that. Afterwards, I learned that HarleyGirl248 is a member of the so-called group called the Signing Circle which collaborated with Barry Sewell and his cohorts in an attempts to destroy Deaf Bilingual Coalition and yes, the NAD.

The members of the SC apparently wrote emails to Tayler Mayer to complain of my name-calling upon this haggardly woman which led me to be banned from DVTV without a warning. When I learned that my profile has been rescinded, I was baffled.

I emailed Tayler Mayer mainly because I considered (and still do!) him as a friend.  The very first email that I wrote reads:

what’s going on? i cant find my ridor9th profile on deafvideo.tv what’s going on?

I also thought why don’t we also talk about this over the videophone so I fired the 2nd email:

vp me at xxx xxx xxxx now!

No response from Tayler at all.  So I fired the third email:

I am getting lots of emails and IMs asking about what’s going on?  Please RESPOND.

Still no response from Tayler at all. So I fired the fourth email:

something is wrong. why did you remove all of my profile and comments on ALL dvtv without notifying me — not even with a warning or so.

Finally, after fourth email, Tayler responded with a brief paragraph that reads:

U signed the pact. I don’t owe u an email. I’m deeply disappointed and think that u need to take a longer break from the internet. Its not healthy for you.

I was appalled by his tone. I responded back:

What? What does it has to do with the pact? I’m confused as of now. Please at least, talk. I’m clueless at what you said … I was not cyberbulling anyone else in particular. I did not stalk, harass or bully anyone else. What did I do?

After thinking about what Tayler said to me in his brief paragraph, I fired another one to clarify:

Tayler:I feel that you took things out of context. What did I do that contradicts the pact? I hadn’t stalked, harassed nor attacked anyone else in particular. All I did is to criticize Eric LeFors for hiding behind the Xians’ beliefs to attack the Proposition #8. Your one paragraph response is quite offensive and demeaning. What is your justification in doing this?

You see, I thought the whole thing was that Tayler rescinded the profile is because on one of my vlogs which I blasted Eric LeFors for supporting the ban on gay marriage to preserve the marriage for heterosexuals. I was the one who pointed out that it was well known out there that Eric cheated on his wife at Gallaudet and in Florida as well. How hypocritical of him to attack gays when he is no better with himself, right? Briefly, Tayler responded to notify that the comments about Eric LeFors has nothing to do with the fact that I was banned. It has to do with HarleyGirl248. He also left a comment to me:

I see no reason to. I’m sorry. Curious did ur doctor say u could return to the internet or are you going behind the doctor’s back? I honestly think its not good for you at this point. You’ve gone through tremendously difficult times. I don’t entirely blame you but from what I’ve seen, I believe u need more time to focus on yourself. One way or other, u are not welcome at dvtv at the time being.

In the next response, I explained about my doctor situation which I think the readers has no business to snoop in. But from that point on, Tayler never responded after I emailed him to complain about people viciously slandering my name on DVTV — someone accused me of being a hacker, an abuser in a domestic violence (?!) et al. Here are my emails that I pleaded Tayler to do something which he never responded at all.

Yeah, whatever. I’ll wait for your response. But you need to warn or something. I was flooded with emails and IMs and I was stunned. Obviously, our viewpoints of cyberbulling pact is different and it is not right that you sacked my profile like that.What Eric LeFors did was wrong, simply put. I pointed out that what he did was hypocritical. Simply put.

***

my therapist has agreed that it’s OK about a month ago. I just wish you communicated with me earlier. i’m baffled at the way you reacted.

***

bgmaron8 is calling me asshole, he has slandered me. you tolerated that. what’s that?

***

are u pals with Barry Sewell? have you realized that Barry Sewell was the culprit that caused several organizations to crash and burn? I learned that you had been communicating with a lot of people about me but very few with me to talk about this fiasco? Listen, Tayler, I’m not upset. I’m just concerned about this. There are lots of misinformation on DVTV about myself that I feel the need to defend myself. Especially with RAD fiasco. You need to acknowledge that this was simply a process that has not been finalized and I feel that you did not give me a chance to know the rules thoroughly. It is not fair. ricky

***

u kept on emailing others and they forwarded the msgs to me… and you dont answer my emails? what’s going on?

***

hey now people are assuming that I hacked in people’s accounts to force them to reinstate me back online. I dont approve of this — how can you allow people to tarnish me with false accusations? Your silence speaks louder, Tayler!

As you can see, Tayler never responded at all.  I will leave you with this for you to decide on your own.  There was never any due process at all.  Just that I learned that Barry Sewell and his cohorts were the ones who organized and emailed to complain against me in order to drive me out of DVTV.

It is true that I signed the Cyberbulling Pact with the understanding that I shall not stalk, harass and offend people on incessant manner.  I do not email, IM, send the messages anonymously via Youtube/blogging/vlogging incessantly. It is not my style to do so — but I do insult or offend people at times when they attempted to turn the tables on me.  Just like HarleyGirl248 who attempted to indicate that she refused to open and view my vlog response simply because she heard about me, rather than to see what I have to say about her criticizing the NAD.

There were instances that DVTV’s vloggers has engaged in cyber-harassment upon me — Daniel of Minnesota (His DVTV’s name is Letsgofly08) is currently a student at NTID/RIT whom has disparaged my decesased father’s name on DVTV which offended me to no end.  I kept on getting 6 similiar emails via YouTube.com from Daniel of Minnesota that contains the derogatory terms repeatedly.

I got this emails from bgmaron8 of Florida:

you are full of low white trailer trash guy .  Did you know that I knew where you live so beware!  you are so fucking sicko.  Why can’t you accept to move on without DVTV. You already banned. you are reputation for troublemaker.  so last word, fuck off!

From LifeIsShortZZ whom I have no idea who s/he is:

No, you are fucking dumbass, Ricky Retard. Philatino is damn right! Tayler banned you is bec Lchaim whined. She also got u banned. Now, she acts like she didn’t! LOL U ARE SOO BLIND! Again, you are fucking dumbass, Ricky Fatty Retard. So, be whining and ask shemale ‘whyyyyyy sobbbbing! u fake bitch’..that’s right..tell her, idiotically.
Hey stop being bitching “why why me banned” Duh u are DONE. Like boss (tayler) fired u. so, u can’t get job back! bye bye faggot. Now, I cheer drinkin beer!

Needless to say, I got more than 10 comments from LifeIsShortZZ which I shall not repeat.

There are comments by DeafSweetMind, ASLHood and DeadOIC who kept on leaving derogatory and offensive comments on my blog, youtube.com profile and others as well.

What do I do about it?  Of course, I ignore and at times, defend myself when needed.  But did I ever complain to Tayler whenever someone offends me on DVTV?  No, not at all.  Why?  Because I was hoping for DVTV to reach the same success as did the YouTube — that means what?  Everything can be recorded whether if you like it or not.

But too bad, there are many crybabies and low “fow!” functional among Deaf vloggers and viewers that carried the same mentality from deaf residential schools where they try to rule each other’s lives as much as can be.

Just look at that haggardly woman and Barry Sewell — they attempt to rule people by deceiving them with misinformation and when someone refused to bow before these fools, the same group sicced their group to bombard Tayler Mayer with emails to complain about this, that and there.

That’s how it works over there at DeafVIDEO.TV. Let’s face the truth:  Deaf people has been always marginalized for years as a minority and wanted to be pampered in the long run.  Which is why DVTV and Tayler often pandered and treated them like children.  Which is why DVTV is often viewed as a place of children to play around even for Deaf adults.

I did have several conversations with friends from Gallaudet, asking them why they do not vlog over there?  Their response?  “Look at who’s who over there!  Self-explanatory.”

True, true!  That, that!

At least, I’ll stick with deafcore.com where it holds no-barred vlogs for any Deaf vloggers/viewers.  It is a place where Deaf people can cuss, debate and vlog about anything else.

I still adore Tayler Mayer even if we differ on the definitions of cyberbulling.  I do think he’s hot!  I do think he’s charming fellow.  His wife is lucky to have him.  He’d keep me busy 24/7/365 if he was mine, really!  It’s just that I was surprised with his lack of communication and that it is inevitable we shall spar from time to time — knowing that we have our own opinions.

For what is worth, I’ll attach the vlog on this entry later tonight or in the morning.  I’m still learning how to attach to the wordpress — so sue me!

Fire away with your thoughts on this subject.

Cheers,

Update: Dad is quite a fighter.  He emerged from coma and is alert.  He attempted to remove the tubes by himself.  Had to restrain him from doing that.  He kept on pointing at the bathroom door repeatedly.  The nurses repeatedly told him to pee into the bedpan/tube-whatever-it-is, he seems to be determined to walk and pee on his own.

Initially, we thought the prognosis seems not to be good.  In fact, they warned us that he could have a stroke or brain damage.  But it appears that he is not afflicted with it which is good news.

Thanks for the emails, vlogs and comments as well as someone making a vlog about Dad on deafvideo.tv.  I told Dad about this and he was quite surprised to receive the support from all over the country.  You don’t know how many VP calls we had to endure in the last 48 hours.

Update II: My father, Billy C. Taylor, Senior, has died this morning at 10:16 AM EST at the age of 72.  We are quite devastated about it.  And since the death was preventable, the hospital will regret the day they stalled in providing the interpreters for four days prior to the heart attack.  Of course, I’ll make sure that the hospital pays for its sins.
