My Best Posts of 2015

I kinda missed the boat a little bit by not doing this last month or earlier this month. Here are the Top 3 Posts from Shiny Red Button Media from 2015. Better late than never I suppose.

1. A Trump Presidency

Race relations will go down the toilet. Let’s not kid ourselves here. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” mantra really means “Make America White Again.” The legacy of white supremacy will be allowed free rein to continue. The white nationalists will get what they want in getting rid of brown and black people that they don’t like.

2. Non Sports Watchers Have No Soul

The more I think about it, “I don’t watch sports” is the new “I don’t watch TV” of the 21st century.

I am inherently mistrustful of people who don’t watch sports.

Look, I’m not saying that people have to worship sweaty men in uniform or live vicariously through them. Watching sports isn’t necessary the pathway towards Basic Broness orBasic Bitchiness. But, in conjunction with constructive hobbies, watching sports can be a great way to unwind and bond with others.

3. Kill Your Darlings

I don’t want to name names, but I have found that I have had to do this in the past year with one of my favorite bloggers. His blog posts and insights about psychology, dynamics in life and popular culture in general, were things that I gained a lot from. He drew out his arguments very fluidly, and wasn’t afraid to break up his synopsis into several parts to fully drive home all that he had to say. He wasn’t afraid to talk about tough and blunt truths on just about any topic.

But as of late, I found that he has started to come off as pretentious, and out of touch. Like as if he’s above the fray of everyone else and their beliefs. The same blogger that instilled in me the ability to see things in nuance in many areas of life and pop culture, judges people relentlessly on Twitter and his recent writings.
