My Thoughts on "Straight Outta Compton"

Straight Outta Compton

1.  Jason Mitchell as Easy-E/Eric Wright was an Oscar worthy performance.  The young man deserves an Oscar nomination. He won't win but her deserves the nomination.

2.  I can't helped be reminded of Boys-N-The-Hood.  Great Movie. Great Story.  Show that stole the Summer.  Compton & LA.  Ice Cube. Straight-out-Compton.

3.  Why is Yella complaining!  "All publicity is good publicity".  Oh, he ain't complaining?

4.  Why is Ren complaining! "All publicity is good publicity".  Is he complaining?

5.  How Timely a Movie!  The fascism of now is playing out in just as deadly terms and it was then.  Now, we have more access to see and the cops massively out-gun the citizens.  #FuckThePolice  #BlackLivesMatter

6. @DruSonpn and I were at the Houston, TX show depicted in the movie.  We later got shot at during the after party.  I think that it was club Gucci on the "norf side" of town.

7.  I ain't mad at Jerry.   If I was N.W.A., I would be mad at Jerry.  I found him depicted sympathetically in the film.

8.  The violence against women / mysogony thing.  Dre owns it.  It's already been adjudicated.  The New York Times Article.  Lets move on, but I am a Man, so I think that way.  No, really, let's move on.
"Cube's answer to criticism is, 'Go make your own N.W.A movie and focus on what you want to focus on.' We focused on what we thought was important." 

9.  I forgot how dope "No Vaseline" was.

10.  I really did enjoy the movie!

On Encrypted Communication

11/16/2015 from my Facebook post: Since the Paris terrorist attack, I have heard a lot of propaganda critical of encrypted communication and encryption technology. A Few Thoughts... Encryption with back doors for law enforcement doesn't exist nor can it be created. Encryption doesn't work that way. If there were back doors to allow law enforcement access to streams of communication, the "bad guys" or corporations are just as capable of exploiting the same back door. Fake crypto isn't safe to use. I'm not willing to give up my right to privacy in exchange for security. If there is no real encryption then there is no real privacy. I'm amazed at how quickly our elected leaders are so willing to compromise the constitution and our rights in exchange for their "protection".
