The Quirks And Perils Of Social Media Versus Mainstream Media (Or - /the Search For The Humans Behind The Uniforms)
Every so often I find out about a new way of communicating with the universe.  This usually happens when my world seems to have had another bit bolted on to it.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Periscope, Blab.im, are all useful tools when I want to educate myself about something.  They are even more useful when I want to find out the truth behind some rather worrying headlines.

I don't know about you but - personally - I am getting rather fatigued and nauseous about reading the agendas of the Mainstream Media.

This means I keep searching for alternatives instead of the BBC, etc.

The best alternatives I have found are the people behind the headlines - or who have some clue as to the real story.

Last night I spent nearly two hours being entertained by three men who should really have their own talkshow on a TV Channel.

I get the idea that Blab.im is supposed to be some kind of video conferencing app (a bit like Skype but you can get more people on it on video).

What it turned out to be last night was a brilliant way to find the human side of Sgt TCS, Constable Chaos, and Nathan Constable, as well as learn the truth behind some of the headlines.  The broadcast was quite humourously called "Off Beat" - and that is exactly what it was.  Just imagine walking into a cafe and being allowed to sit down with a friendly group of strangers and join their conversation without being made to feel uncomfortable as a result.

The Mainstream Media are too busy trying to put a negative spin on everything - maybe you should try broadcasts like "Off Beat" if you want to know the true story.
