5 On Friday: Songs for the Signs!

Happy Friday, all! In today’s installment of “Five on Friday,” I offer five songs which have the Western astrological signs in their titles. Some of these are familiar to most, but I think one or two might be a bit more obscure. Perfect beginning for the weekend, eh?

Full Frontal Thursday: 19 July 2017 Edition

In this newest installment of “Full Frontal” Thursday, Ms. Bee talks about the Drumpf’s so-called “Voter Integrity” Commission, Congressman Louie Gohmert’s free-style “history” lesson, and urges those who want to impeach the Drumpf to do more than just carry signs and chant!

Shameless Gaming Promo: Mid-Year Mayhem!

*** DISCLAIMER: As always, I wanted to clarify that I receive no compensation of any sort for these personal gaming promotions. I do these of my own free will as a dedicated gamer, and as a long-time subscriber to this awesome game! ***

I’m happy to announce the fourth installment of an in-game, seasonal event: Mid-Year Mayhem will be celebrated in the battlefields and war-zone of The Elder Scrolls Online! As you might recall, the first event was the Witches’ Festival in October of last year. That was followed by the New Life Festival in December, which began on the Solstice and ended around the New Year.

The Vernal Equinox was celebrated with the Jester’s Festival, where one of the mementoes that could be earned was a branch of Sakura (桜 or 櫻): you can festoon fellow gamers and guild-mates with a shower of fragrant flower-petals whenever you wish. If you’re feeling particularly salty, you can spatter others with a nice, wet, gooey ball of mud – watch their avatars grunt in disgust as they try to shake and scrape off the filth!

Anyway, the mayhem begins at 0700 PDT, and I will be streaming some of the gaming madness live throughout the weekend. Click the link here to bookmark my Twitch channel, then tune in to watch the insanity. I will also be testing out some recording in another attempt to get some new footage posted on my YouTube channel, in order to utilize that medium much more than I have been…so keep your eyeballs peeled!

‘Black Panther,’ ‘Black Lightning,’ ‘Luke Cage’ Highlight Rise of Black Superheroes

This is awesome news – I hope that these superheroes will soon be featured prominently in video games, as well! This sort of diversity in the gaming community is very much needed.

Diversity is on the uptick in comics-inspired TV and film. When “Luke Cage” exec producer Cheo Hodari Coker declared at his show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel last year, “The world is ready for a bulletproof black man,” the crowd erupted in cheers. So did the internet. “Right before I said it, I knew what I was feeling,” Coker later told Variety. “I had said variations of it during the day. It was coming from an emotional place, but I didn’t think it was going to reverberate the way that it did. But I’m glad that it did.”

The “Luke Cage” panel came in July on the heels of widespread protests sparked by the killings of unarmed black men by white police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota. When the show premiered in September, it became the first live-action series about a black superhero…

Midweek Memes: ROFLMAO!!! (Re-blogged)

This post just begged to be reblogged, so I couldn’t resist – happy Hump Day, everyone!

😀

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

This random mish-mash of memes covers everything that I’ve noticed happening since the beginning of the month: from gaming, to politics, to racist pseudo-science and the surging hatred against Muslims and those who identify with the religion of Islam. The psychotic word-salad the pseudo-scientists use is beyond laughable – it’s one of the obvious symptoms and identifiers of the ‘reasonable racist.’ They’ve been coming out of the woodwork more and more…they’re like cockroaches!

FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (KSPR) – Brigadier General Donna Martin recently became the first African American female ever to serve as commandant of the U.S. Army Military Police School. In a ceremony on Friday, July 14, Martin’s title was made official as Brigadier General Kevin Vereen relinquished commandancy.

Brig. Gen. Martin described herself as a quiet, small town girl from Virginia. She stayed in Virginia to attend college at Old Dominion University until she was sent on her first assignment with the U.S. Army in Germany. She said she didn’t know if she was going to take the military route at the start of college, but a group of ROTC members made her feel at home. “They were really a group of kids who were just like me,” said Brig. Gen. Martin. “We all had common goals…

A 19-year-old is making history and disrupting the wealthy white male-dominated sport of polo at the same time. On June 30, Shariah Harris of Philadelphia became the first black woman to play high-goal polo, the top tier of polo in the U.S. This summer, the Cornell University sophomore hit the field at the Tony Greenwich Polo Club in Connecticut to play for the Postage Stamp Farm team in the Silver Cup tournament. Harris told HuffPost that she’s excited about this barrier-breaking opportunity. “It’s great. Everything’s going by really fast, actually so it’s been great. This is something I’ve always wished I could do but never thought would happen. It’s pretty amazing.”

Harris became interested in the sport at age 8 or 9 after her…

Why I Don’t Promote Bloggers

I never have, and I never will! ROFL

1 – Promoting other bloggers through reblogs and pingbacks is an awesome way to network and grow your community.

2 – WordPress has a forever growing group of bloggers blogging on every topic you can think of. Promoting new bloggers and new topics helps to spread ideas and cultures around the blogosphere.
