Desperation & Neediness…

…used to be negative traits to be managed and overcome. Now, it seems as if they are encouraged, rewarded, and celebrated by many.

Meanwhile, I’m considered to be a heartless bitch because I’m just not interested in being around soul-sucking wastes of air, energy, space, and time.

Go figure.

Full Frontal Thursday: Climate Change

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam Bee talks about climate change and follows with a sweet little song. Climate change is something which affects ALL of us. Because, you know, we all live on this planet. It’s not something which MIGHT harm us. It has, it is, and will continue to. Batten down the hatches, folks! While you’re at it – learn to swim.

Fats Domino, the New Orleans rhythm-and-blues singer whose two-fisted boogie-woogie piano and nonchalant vocals, heard on dozens of hits, made him one of the biggest stars of the early rock ’n’ roll era, has died in Louisiana. He was 89.

His death was confirmed by his brother-in-law and former road manager Reggie Hall, who said he had no other details. Mr. Domino lived in Harvey, La., across the Mississippi River from New Orleans. Mr. Domino had more than three dozen Top 40 pop hits through the 1950s and early ’60s, among them “Blueberry Hill,”“Ain’t It a Shame” (also known as “Ain’t That a Shame,” which is the actual lyric), “I’m Walkin’,” “Blue Monday” and “Walkin’ to New Orleans.”

Throughout he displayed both the buoyant spirit of New Orleans…

His wife Donna Brown Guillaume told the Associated Press he died at their Los Angeles home of complications of prostate cancer. Guillaume often played acerbic, dry-witted, but ultimately lovable characters like the butler Benson Du Bois, which he created on the 1977 series “Soap,” before his character was spun off in 1979.

Last Week Tonight: Multilevel Marketing (7 November 2016)

In this 2016 installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the predatory practices of multilevel marketing companies such as AmWay, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Herbalife, and Youngevity, to name a few. One of my brothers has fallen victim to these pyramid schemes, in spite of the warnings from myself and other siblings. It is sad to see that he lost an excellent job at a very large company to devote his failing energy to these scams. It nauseates me when I see people doing the exact same thing with sites like WordPress or Facebook – which is why I avoid those pages like the plague.
