Return Of The Centrist

Greetings and salutations all. Let me reintroduce myself. I am Timothy S Purvis and from now on I will be posting blogs the first Friday of every month. I’ve been making random posts on here since 2012 but nothing has been consistent. Well, I’ve decided to change that. 

What you will find here are my thoughts on current events, topics, concerns, ravings, etc etc. I’ve been busy writing ideas down about what I want to get into and I’m eager to get started. Well, I’ve already gotten started haven’t I!  But my first post in this new era will be March 3rd 2017 and it should be a good one! But be forewarned, these posts might get a little long from here on out. 

Every so often, not on those first Fridays, I may post video links here and there to my animations I post up on youtube just because. I do enjoy doing those videos when I have the chance. So if you happen to have been a reader before with my other posts (which dumbly enough I neglected to tag. Doh!) then there’s more coming! If you’re new, then sit back and get ready for some unfettered thought processes. 

Thanks for reading and I look forward to posting for you!

Sincerely, 

Timothy Scott Purvis aka iCentrist

Open Enrollment Needs To End

So I’ve been trying for the last two and a half months to get ahold of somebody through my company’s insurance provider. Nobody would answer the phone (their directory menu was utter crap allowing no way to talk to an actual person), I couldn’t enroll online through the system because it didn’t “recognize my information”, and when I finally did get ahold of an operator they treated me like some slithering beast because I’d missed the deadline. “Well you should have enrolled, sir. The deadline has already expired.”

Then I decide, fuck it, I’ll sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Health Care programs. Ha Ha. Nope. Nothing affordable about that. The cheapest I could get per month  was 138 bucks and let me tell you I can’t afford that. I don’t make the most money out there. I work for retail. And the whole process of trying to find insurance has left me sour and cynical. I remember years ago just calling a provider and getting hooked up. Now you have to jump through so many hoops it just leaves you feeling like a circus chimp ready to rip off someone’s face.

What really pisses me off, though, is the fact you have to wait an ENTIRE year just to enroll for health insurance. Why? You don’t have to wait a year for car insurance. You don’t have to wait a year for home insurance. Why do you have to wait a year for health insurance? Shouldn’t you be able to purchase it at any point when you’re ready?  It’s fucking ridiculous.

We should all demand of our representatives that they put in measures into the system, or something, that opens up the availability of insurance all throughout the year and not just at some designated point at the end of the year where maybe not everybody is in a position to sign up. It would certainly make life easier. Also, if I can’t afford health insurance, what on God’s green Earth makes these idiots think I can afford the penalty for not having it?

Open Enrollment and this overpriced system needs to end. Those of us on the bottom, us sorry little dregs of society, can’t take the crap anymore.

Still Here and Still Moving Forward

 

 

Here it is, the end of the year. Moving towards the christmas season. In just a few weeks, it’ll be 2017. So what have I done this year? Well I did manage the first episode of my new animation series Silent Cloud Return to Offender:

And there are a myriad of animated commercials I posted to my youtube page that will, in the future, make it into the beginnings of the remaining Silent Cloud episodes. There will be six all together btw.

I’ve also been developing the scripts for two new RPG Maker VX Ace games. One is shorter than the other and that one will probably be release to steam first. Though neither will see the light of day this coming year. Or maybe even the next given how long it takes to make these things. Then there are the scripts to a season 3 of my Star Cloud series-a series that, with regards to the first two seasons, I’ve been converting into HD with the majority of those episodes successfully finished. Though I still have episodes 4 and 5 of season 1 to complete. Season 2 was easy as the animation was already fairly stable and I only had to adjust it on the most minimal of levels with new music plugged in just to make it that much more original.

Then I go to manage my facebook page for my Star Cloud/Cosmic Fantasies endeavors and am reminded, once more, that I still have a personal .com account of Cosmic Fantasies to which this blog exists to keep it in play. And yet I’m rarely on here. Why? Because I don’t have a lot to say. I wish I did. But I don’t. I’m not the kind of person who feels the need to constantly be in the spotlight, on the internets, in the public eye just so that I can tell the world just what is on my mind on said particular day. I’m only doing this now because…well, I wanted to post SOMETHING since I haven’t been on in so long. Maybe I’ll do something once a month? On the first? Sure. If I can remember. If I have something to say. So let me get my thoughts out on this year then.

This year…hasn’t sucked as much as other people want to say it has. Everyone around me is looking forward to the new year. Hoping for a better tomorrow than there was a today. Yet, for me, it’s just the present. Sure, we had a presidential election where voters, sick of Washington as it is, voted for a narcissistic lunatic with the truthfulness of a sociopath on a murder rampage. Obviously, I didn’t vote for he who shall not be named. And I do hope he’ll be honest with his supporters and do what he said he’d do. However, I doubt it. He’ll be a Washington insider in no time and, given who he is, won’t show any remorse about it, only say that “I never said that” when all video evidence demonstrates elsewise.

There were some good movies that came out. I liked Batman V Superman (not sure why so many thought it was so horrible but people seem hard to please anymore), and Ghostbusters was good (but it faced a similar backlash as BvS), and Doctor Strange was wonderful (and the public thought so too), and entertainment in general was pretty good. So yeah it wasn’t a retched year. It had problems, but so does every year.

What will next year bring? Well, hopefully, I’ll be able to be as active on Youtube as a I planned this last year. I don’t think I’m going to try to be this ultra popular channel though. Especially since Youtube as altered its mechanics yet again by putting the focus on watch minutes rewarding content makers who have the time to post thirty plus minutes of videos per day, every day, for however long eternity lasts. Yeah, I’m just going to post what amuses me.

So check out my Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/caeliclord and check out my facebook page www.facebook.com.  And maybe I’ll write some more on here.

Happy New Years.

What Am I Doing With My Life?!

Ha! No, I’m good actually. I keep forgetting I have a freaking blog here. Oy. Anyhow, since my last post, a rant really on censorship in the country and on companies denying us all what we really want, I’ve been busy build my first video game in RPG Maker VX Ace (I’ll post a link below if you’re interested on seeing a vlog I published on youtube that has footage for it in it) and I’ve been busy working on my new novel. Well, it’s a novel I wrote several years ago and just haven’t felt like going back to it to refurbish into publishable form given how much work there is left to do on the book. But, I’m making some headway on both of those. The novel I’m working on is called Left of Midnight and is a sci-fi story set in World War II on a deserted island. It starts out somewhat cliche’, which is the intent, and then manifests into something rather out there. I hope it’s a good story and I’ve had some positive feedback on it so far.

I also have an animation project on the back burner which has the scripts written for it and some filming already done on it, though there is still much, much more to do. Not sure WHEN that’ll see the light of day. I’m trying to get myself into a position where I can do these things at home and be profitable and not have to go back to the grind of retail work. I have a degree in graphic design and the only jobs I can get are in the service industry. Sucks. Now, I want more. I want to accomplish what is in my heart to accomplish. I’ve written so many stories over the years, and done so many animations, yet nothing has ever brought me a cent. Which isn’t why I’ve done it, but it would be nice so that I can do those things AND still pay the bills. Also, I might get a little more house cleaning done. This apartment is a mess. Will the wife and son lift a finger to help? Nooooooppppeee. But c’est la vie.

Anyhow, that’s it for now. Thought I’d post something while I remembered this was here. Get something useful for my 18 bucks a year. Maybe. Here’s some links for ya all:

To watch my vlog featuring footage from my game (Actual gameplay footage starts at the 4:30 mark):

Btw, I have to take down that youtube link on my website. When Youtube upgraded, they took away your ability to build a display box featuring your videos. Bastards. They’re bot’s a bastard too.

Thanks for reading, if any of you did, and don’t worry, I will be back!

South Park Episode 201 Uncensored

So, a few years back episode 201 was censored by Comedy Central and drew a lot of press. Apparently, someone has managed to download an uncensored version of 201 through the South Park servers. Good job anonymous source. Too often lately, the corporations have been trying to supersede the government. It’s like they want to become the all encompassing force controlling the public. And with Citizens United, they came ever closer to this goal. I’m sure Comedy Central was more watching out for their employees than anything, it is certainly a convenient test tool for how much information that they can keep from public viewage.  Here’s a link to the uncensored episode of 201:

http://www.theconservativevoices.com/media/cat/political/south-park-episode-201-uncensored-r665

Or you can try watching it here:

Youtube won’t even allow it to become remotely viewable though clips of Kyle’s speech have made it up.  It’s a sad state of affairs in the nation today when creators are not allowed to make their views known out of fear or out of opportunity. Who can say. But if we value our freedoms as much as we claim we do, such as sending our troops off to fight for other nations’ freedoms but being unwilling to fight for those same freedoms at home, then we must challenge any move by a government or organization or corporation that takes steps to silence voice even under the ideal of ‘protecting’ people. For it is a truth known by too many these days that there are many out there who will use this as an excuse to create more violence.

We shouldn’t use violence against violence for it only creates more violence. However, we should stand loud and proud in our proclamations that these things cannot be allowed to flourish. That the first amendment guarantees creators’ rights, and citizen rights, to freedom of speech. A subject that has been capitalized upon a lot lately but not necessarily by beneficial sources but rather by those who would suppress our freedoms in the name of their bottom line.

Spread the word that we will not be the pawns of terrorists or of tyrannical forces looking out for only their own self interests. Watch the videos above and pressure Comedy Central to release this episode unaltered. Let them prove they believe that we all have the right to freedom of expression free from an oppressive hand of an ostensible benevolent protector and/or malevolent forces desiring a return to control of the few.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Protest statement

Almost 5 years ago, the creators of South Park lambasted the hypocrisy of our nation and the order portrayed within. At the time, and indeed still an issue we grapple with, there was fallout over the proper handling of materials related to worldwide religions. Particularly Islam wherein certain members bent on terrorist activities have warped the perception of the muslim world. Truly, though, all faiths, beliefs, and ideologies spawn an extremist element. Afterall, the middle ages gave us the Christian crusades. And our own culture has spawned militant groups that harbor such terrorists as Timothy McVeigh, the Westboro church, the Zodiac killer, the Unibomber, and the Columbine shooters: to name but a few of the long list of extremists in modern times. And of course in times past any that spoke against Christianity met a swift end at the end of the gallows, or died slowly through disemboweling.

So here we are centuries later at war with ideologues desperately trying to spread their own interpretation of their religious beliefs. Which is at odds with a nation that has historically defended the rights of the layman. The right to freedom of speech, the right to the pursuit of happiness-free from the yoke of tyranny and oppression, a government formed to protect the people, stay out of their personal affairs, and ensure a stable democratic republic.

Enter the age of the corporation. Entities that are not concerned with personal freedoms but personal profit. Who indeed circumvent the democratic process at every opportunity via lobbyists and PACS aimed at generating false information and bringing in funds for the extremely wealthy. Willing to push by the wayside the creative processes of the individual and bypass all the liberties provided by a government over two centuries.

Herein lays the hypocrisy. We value our freedoms so much we send our sons and daughters overseas to fight for a cause we refuse to defend at home. When the hand of oppression rears its head we stray from the responsibilities granted us, infused upon us, given up for us of a citizen of a nation that holds certain truths to be self evident.

Now, this is rather preachy but should not be construed as a direct attack on Comedy Central. Afterall, they were afraid for their employees. Which is why this episode was so heavily edited. However, in their zeal, they ignored the promise of a nation. To not interfere with the creative impulses of the individual. Matt Stone and Trey Parker had a comment on our state of affairs. A comment that would not offend the rational mind. A comment laced with the reality that violence begets more violence.

What would Comedy Central have done if someone threatened physical violence if they DIDN’T air the episode uncensored? Where does it stop?

Such was the statement of this episode.

Episode 201, in viewing it unaltered, in no way is offensive to Muslims. (Outside of its ordinary crudeness and brash humor, of course.) But casts a light on the dichotomy that is our culture. Either we believe in our liberties, and are willing to defend it to the death, or we do not.

In this case, there is very little wiggle room in that a concise point has been made. Rather than give in to the threat of violence, Comedy Central should have trusted the commentary of the creators. In the end, they ironically proved the observation correct and prophetic in its insight.

I call upon Comedy Central, as do many of us, to officially release episodes 200 and 201 unaltered and make it available to the viewer at their earliest possible convenience and to not use this as an excuse to circumvent the liberties of the creators and the loyal viewers of South Park and Comedy Central. In so doing, we can begin to take steps towards a more rational dialogue. For if the corporation is willing to, cannot a country?

Violence comes in all forms and is not limited to a creed, to an ethnicity, or to an ideal. A dangerous mind will act. Let us not sacrifice ourselves upon the altar of extremism.

A Long List of Games Beaten

Maybe I should put some other things up on here from time to time. Since I don’t have much to say, how about a list of all the games I’ve beaten since I started playing? Well, I’m going to do it anyway.  Enjoy.

Home Again

So, I’m not sure when I’ll be blogging again. I moved in June back to Dayton Ohio and have gotten settled in pretty good. I’m in the process of developing my first video game and working on revising my Mass Effect Reimagined story so that I can put it up online. I’m also trying to find a new job given that Wal-mart sucks and refused to do a transfer for me. Fortunately, my wife is working and making pretty good take home pay.

Everything is going well but my hobbies have taken a hit on how often I can do them. Such as my Silent Cloud animation. I’m going to get them done. I just don’t know when. So if anyone is actually reading these blogs, I haven’t gone away just taken a prolonged vacation. Eventually, I’ll have more to say. I hope. Until then, stay toasty.
