It finally struck me. Blacklist coverage is like Las Vegas. It’s a casino. They lure you in with the hope that a randomly assigned reader or two will give you a high score or two that makes the service worthwhile. You’re rolling the dice. A few may get lucky. Maybe you get an 8,9, or elusive 10 on your first try. Or maybe you fork out for 2, or 3, 4, 5 reviews. The likelihood of it is slim but it happens enough, at least for someone who isn’t you that you keep coming back. submitted by
But what it’s not is a coverage service. You get twitter limited characters that can’t possibly give you any useful or valuable insight. Sometimes the reviews are fair and sometimes they’re not. But even for the “bargain” you pay for blacklist “coverage” you overpay.
Here’s my most recent coverage for a submission I made. It’s a period film about a sports legend who won 11 consecutive PGA tournaments in 1945.
Strengths: “We all love an underdog, and despite being white in a time when that was a massive advantage and living near a golf course, Byron has to struggle.”
What? Who is this vetted reader with a year of coverage experience? I understand subjectivity but professional coverage also demands a certain degree of objectivity. What other useful nuggets did this woke aspiring screenwriter submit?
Weaknesses: “The characters don’t interrogate their gender archetypes...” (what? Did I just submit this to a gender study class at UCLA?)
But this is my favorite. “The extreme racism of the era is whitewashed from the character journeys and dialog.”
I guess for this reader every film needs to be about racism.
This reader reads for the blacklist.
I could roll the dice a few more times at the blacklist casino in hopes for more, but why bother? At the blacklist the house always wins. And how could they not with dealers like this?

2017 has been an interesting year for financial technology and the cyber world in general. Media campaigns and general industry momentum have brought the concept of crypto currency systems into the mainstream with surges in Ethereum and Bitcoin caused partially by waves of Chinese trying to get their wealth out of the country and bail on the communist system for better lives in other countries. The wall Street Journal, The New York Times and all of the major intelligence think tanks have articulated the global efforts of the Chinese government to contain this mass financial exodus sometimes using rather brutal and unethically coercive methods to slow the wave down and have rich expats return with their money and a new sense of loyalty. submitted by
Whatever the cause of the explosion in crypto currency and blockchain technologies being explored outside of the dark net world of drug transactions, hacker hardware and antiestablishment sentiment; the momentum and media hype is a great thing for the creators in Tech that are waiting for the opportunity to destroy entire species of dinosaurs unless the monopolistic type leverage of the banking establishment continues to prevent progress. The fact that its 2017 and people are waiting days for wires to go through when you could run a more secure system using biometrics and data verification algorithms to wire cash or other tokened assets over a secured blockchain system in a minute is ridiculous. The sad thing is that none of these technologies are expensive anymore so there isn’t an excuse. Certain smart phones have had advanced biometric technologies for years thanks to innovations from the defense and security sector that have trickled down to the private sector. When I was on the floor at the AUSA conference in 2013 they had retina scanners that could hit dozens of targets for identifications from over 40 yards away and the technology was on the floor for everyone without a clearance that paid their 50 dollars to see. From the vetted channels of data I’ve gathered from people working on security in Las Vegas advanced biometric technology consistently scans top Casinos and can identify blacklisted individuals in minutes that are put on larger private databases for other Casinos in the network. The fact that Banks aren’t operating with better security protocols and technologies publicly shows how little creativity is being infused in every aspect of consumer banking technology.
Other than regulations, nothing should prevent someone from starting a service that offers tokens for any asset you want backed up on some kind of ledger or database to prevent cyber-attacks that has nothing to do with the banks. You could lock down centers to pick up Cash or Gold secured by the greatest biometric technologies and security systems designed by the best and brightest from the intelligence community that are tired of dealing with politics and getting paid on a GS scale with such high IQ’s, wisdom, street smarts and technological knowledge that is 20 years ahead of the game in analytics and security capabilities.
Although we have begun to see the power of banking and general financial automation in the establishment, I strongly believe that the next Steve Jobs and Elon Musk’s of the Fintech world will rise from grassroots operations of unconventional and practical brilliance. In 5 years you should have AI that analyzes a combined data flow from your credit card spending, cyber behavioral profile and complete financial network that allows the free market to come to you in a way that is engineered to a designer economic lifestyle which evolves to your choosing with sceptic security measures installed. Current API’s that structure applications such as Mint are offering incredibly high speed and extensive account confirmation technology that is decades ahead of corporate cash management systems in speed and in regards to consumer behavioral reports for clients. Currently in Europe a regulation called PSD2 (which goes live in 2018) that ends the banks monopoly on user data could lead to the start of a revolution in consumer data analytics and cash management that will allow those with the best application and systems designs to emerge from the garages into the consumer space.
In conclusion the ability for a Fintech boom revolving around blockchain technologies, advanced biometrics, token systems and integrated consumer behavioral analytics could pop off at any time. The technologies are in play and have been established for so long in the shadows of the defense and security industrial complex that they will inevitably come to the consumer in some kind of revolutionary fashion soon.
Quote of the Day
The past revolutions show us only too well: “the red flag can be waved against the red flag” until the freikorps arrive.
— Theorie Communiste
Word of the Day Top-Down
— Denoting a system in which actions are initiated at the top of a hierarchy. One might think the opposite to be "bottom-up," but this still assumes an "up"; many grass-roots initiatives make this error, attempting to exert leverage through political channels rather than developing the power to achieve their goal autonomously. Better simply to topple pyramids than to attempt to defy gravity. 1553
— Francois Rabelais dies, Paris France. His last will states:
"I have nothing. I owe much. I leave the rest to the poor." 1626
— Death of Francis Bacon, statesman/philosopher. 1754
— New Old World: Letter from Indian slave trader to South Carolina Governor J. Glenn asking for permission to use one group of Indians to fight another:
"We want no pay, only what we can take & plunder, & what slaves we take to be our own." 1802
— Elias Lönnrot lives (1802 - 1884). Collector of folklore, linguist, medical doctor, professor in Finnish philology. Compiler of the Finnish national epic Kalevala for which he traveled among the Lapps, the Estonians & the Finnish for about 10 years interviewing & writing down their stories, poems & songs.
He also compiled a Finnish-Swedish dictionary & began the first magazine in Finnish, Mehiläinen
(The Bee). Not enough: he also wrote & arranged psalms. 1821
— Charles Baudelaire lives (1821-1867), Paris.
One of the great 19th century French poets, who formed with Stéphane Mallarmé & Paul Verlaine the so-called Decadents. His translations of Edgar Allan Poe made Poe better known in France than the US. He became addicted to opium & hashish, & contracted syphilis, which proved lethal, while in law school.
When his Les Fleur du Mal
appeared in 1857 all — author, publisher, & printer — are prosecuted & found guilty of obscenity & blasphemy.
After a lecture tour in Belgium he became seriously ill & died in Paris in his mother's arms.
"Genius is childhood recaptured." 1834

Jotuni was influenced by postnaturalism & impressionism, expressed in her choice of form: short stories, fragments of prose, impressions & dialog. She often shows society from a woman's point of view, as in her major novel, Huojuva Talo
— France: During this month, début de la parution, à Paris, sous la direction de Jean Grave, de la deuxième série de l'organe anarchiste Le Révolté
— France: Hunger revolt in Lyons. 1898
— US: American Renaissance man Paul Robeson lives, Princeton, New Jersey. Football star, actor, singer, black liberation fighter.
During the Cold War, Robeson was not allowed to leave the Land of the Free & the Blacklist virtually destroyed his career. (Oddly, seemingly the same rightwingers who deny the Holocaust ever happened also deny existence of the Blacklist.)

"They sell a little image of us in the markets of Mexico, with a bowie knife in one side of the girdle, & a Colt's revolver in the other, a huge loaf of bread in the left hand, & a slave whip in the right. That is America!"
— Wendell Phillips 1915
— US: Frank Abarno & Carmine Carbone, members of the Italian anarchist Gruppo Gaetano Bresci, accused of planting bombs in St. Patrick's Cathedral & the Church of St. Alphonsus on the five year anniversary (October 13, 1914) of the execution of Francisco Ferrer, are today sentenced to 6 to 12 years in prison. 1917

automobiles more so they're all different sexes

America free Tom Mooney
America save the Spanish Loyalists
America Sacco & Vanzetti must not die...
— Allen Ginsberg 1928

The stream would have no song."

— Colombia: If they do not kill him, Jorge Eliécer Gaitán will be president.
Buy him, they cannot. To what temptation will he succumb who despises the pleasures, who is single, who eats little, drinks nothing & refuses anesthesia to remove a tooth?
The poor & ragged ones adore him, flock to hear him speak. They say when Gaitán speaks it breaks the fog in Bogota.
The arrogant caudillo, tidbit statue face, speaks the naked language of the oligarchy, sitting on the knees of the imperialistic ventriloquist — an oligarchy without its own life, its own words, mouthing agrarian reform & other truths that end a lie.
— ¡Lo mataron! ¡Lo mataron! —
In the street, three shots. Time has run out, Gaitán is left unemployed... Jorge Eliécer Gaitán is assassinated. Listening, earthquake noises, a human avalanche comes to him above. From suburbs & hills, advances a whirlwind, a hurricane of the pain & wrath comes sweeping the city, breaking show windows, upsetting street cars, setting afire buildings...
