Tuesday Tunes

A trio of Tuesday tuneage for those of us who love music.

“There are two kinds of music: good and bad. There are no genres.”

Last Week Tonight: Astroturfing

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses the shady, deceitful practice known as astroturfing. This occurs when organizations hire fake advocates who then create an elaborate illusion of supportive numbers for their cause or message. This practice is something that a lot of bloggers utilize, from what I’ve observed.

Full Frontal Thursday: Bad Boy Roundup, Pregnancy Discrimination, & Crashing Sean Spicer’s Book Tour

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about Paul Manafort’s trial. Jackets made of ostrich or python skin which cost more than a small car? Classy.

Next, she talks about pregnancy discrimination in certain workplaces. I was never pregnant during or after being employed 15+ years in various office environments, but was definitely discriminated against. The women who did get pregnant had no problems getting time off or promotions, either. That doesn’t mean that pregnant women aren’t regularly given the shaft, but the corporations I worked for seemed to have no issues with pregnant women.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is working on the next chapter of his life by writing a shitty book about his time spent lying to the press and the American people on behalf of his corrupt, criminal former boss. Sam’s team followed him on his book tour.

Here’s a little trio of tunes on this hot summer day. We stay cooler here at the coast, thankfully. I feel for you who are enduring this coast-to-coast swelter!

Last Week Tonight: Prosecutors

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about prosecutors and the ways they use or misuse their powers in the criminal justice system.

Saturday Scenery: Woodland Friends

Here are a few pictures of the local wildlife paying a visit. They do so on a regular basis and I enjoy watching their activities and antics.

This is the final weekend of Midyear Mayhem, so today’s live-streamed gaming session begins at 1500 PDT. I hope that you tune in for the AvA action!

Foraging at the fence-line

Striking a pose…

…but she noticed the blinds moving, even though I was being cautious!

“Bob” the squirrel, raiding one of the feeders…

…a chickadee flew in to wait her turn…

…she jumped on the side opposite “Bob” to grab a seed.

“Easy there, greedy-guts! Save some for the rest of us!”

This feeder is just outside of my front door.

“Bob” kept a watchful eye as I got a bit closer…

Ready for your close-up, little buddy?

He finally had enough of me standing there, and gave me the stink-eye before hopping down and scampering away!
