Chadwick Boseman: Tributes pour in for Black Panther actor
He kept his illness private and that deserves admiration.
But words you say after someone dies mean nothing. Zero. Fuck all.
It’s just you doing the ‘social’ thing, the ‘expected thing’

Find the show I want to watch
Have to install the Filmrise App
Do so, search, find what I want
Moments after starting, because Filmrise assumes I have the attention of a rock, adverts

It is utterly brilliant.
Turns out that the Google urls in the two files listed here can be deleted and the site still works. Nice.
Spent some time earlier tightening up what I want automatically blocking on my home network.
Top of that, and it will always be top, is Google.
Fuck Google. In every way possible.
I checked this site.
It is a normal WP install with 4 plugins:
Email Subscribers & Newsletters (new addition so I do not have to use Jetpack)
Viper’s Video Quicktags Migrator (been here forever)
Among others I use the Firefox extension uMatrix to block nasty / privacy invading stuff.
This is what I see here in a Private Firefox Window:
I had no idea that giving Google data is baked into WordPress.

If anyone knows what I can edit to remove this I’d love to know.
