Hey all, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. I keep meaning to make this site my primary online destination, but I end up embracing social media again and again. Every so often, there’s an industry shake up where platforms change, and sometimes grow, but often die. Over the years I’ve posted things to various sites that no longer exist, like Viddy, Tout, GetGlue, and so on, and the content I posted just vanished. That’s the primary reason I stopped joining every new site that came along (you won’t find me on TikTok, Discord, Mastodon, Zoom, etc). We now seem to be at another point where the social media landscape is changing. Instead of chasing another trendy site and trying to make it work for me, I’m going to start posting here more often while also continuing to fill gaps in the past here with content that originally appeared elsewhere. Most of the posts have comment sections, feel free to leave your thoughts, suggestions and feedback. Thanks for stopping by — smile
I used to be on Facebook. Technically, I still am, but I’m locked out of my account and it’s hidden from public view. I know my account hasn’t been completely purged because I still get emails from them; the ones that tell you so and so posted a new photo or whatever in an attempt to get you to log in, which I am unable to do. I can’t even unsubscribe to those emails because I have to log in to do so.
So what happened? I initially set up a Facebook profile — wow, it’s been like 12 (twelve!) years ago, at least. I don’t know what the onboarding process is like now, but back then, among the information you were required to provide was a username and your “real name,” which was defined as the name you go by in your everyday life and that people generally know you by. For my username, I entered the same one I use everywhere, and for “real name,” I entered smile from The Lower East Side.
When I was a kid, A Fistful of Dollars was on television a lot because westerns were still popular and Clint Eastwood was at the height of his superstardom in the 1970‘s. Also, it was only about 100 minutes long without commercials, so it fit perfectly into a two hour prime time TV slot. If Clint had a new movie out in theaters, Fistful of Dollars would be on The Million Dollar Movie all week, so I saw it a lot.
Today finally sees the launch of my first line of Digital Collectibles. It will be a series of non-interactive NFTs providing access to original art, photos, videos and other forms of media created by me. A lot of it wil be previously unreleased material from my archives, but I will also be creating new content as well.
Rather than flooding the market, I will be minting the NFTs to meet demand in order to minimize resource use. Each NFT will have a rarity level based on how many are made available. Initial pricing for the NFTs will vary based on subjective quality and rarity. The Rarity Levels are:
