Midweek Music (Re-blogged)

I have a couple of busy days ahead so my blogging schedule will be slightly off. “Full Frontal Thursday” will be posted on Friday when I return from a small road trip.

Here are some tunes to tide you over ’til then!

Just a few tunes to get you all “over the hump” and sliding into the weekend.

Enjoy.

Last Week Tonight: NRA-TV (Re-blogged)

In light of the arrest of that pasty-faced, surgically-enhanced Russkie slut-for-hire who infiltrated the NRA, I felt that a re-blog of this “Last Week Tonight” episode was warranted.

I wonder what Colion Noir thinks about all this? He certainly had to be aware of it, unless he is being given the mushroom treatment.

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver educates us on a little-known internet channel called “NRA Television.” I’d only heard about it over the past couple of days.

I used to be a member of the National Rifle Association. I had a 3-year membership 20 years ago. Propaganda delivered to my mailbox on a weekly basis. I had a three-inch stack of their ridiculous bumper-stickers by the time I quit, which I donated to the local Army National Guard office.

This bears repeating: The NRA is not a gun-rights organization, looking out for the interests of gun owners in America. Colion Noir, their token Black representative, should really take a closer look at the history of the NRA. He won’t because they pay him too well. Paid shills tend to ignore the obvious facts, much like Omarosa did.

Three Songs on a Saturday! (Re-blogged)

Saturday sunshine means nice weather for beach clean-up!

The gaming continues in earnest, as there are a few events going on through the end of the month. These include an epic contest with awesome in-game and real-life prizes, the chance to earn three free crown crates whether you subscribe or not, a free mount for those who have the “full package,” and a free pet for everyone!

Enjoy the music, and be sure to check out my Twitch channel for the live-stream of in-game action. The caveat, as always, is the potential for crashes and other fun malfunctions when there is a higher-than normal in-game population stressing the gaming servers!

Belated Memoriam: Dr. Maya Angelou (Re-blogged)

Tribute post, re-blogged.

We miss you, Doctor Angelou. Your wisdom is needed these days. Now, more than ever.

Dr. Maya Angelou (née Marguerite Ann Johnson): 4 April 1928 – 28 May 2014

I literally shed tears when I saw the news…Dr. Maya Angelou – author, poet, songstress, honored recipient of multiple awards, and renowned “Global Renaissance Woman” – passed away on 28 May, at the age of 86. She died in her sleep at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Words still can’t convey the sadness I feel, even after watching re-airings of some of her many interviews – part of that sadness is due to the fact that I hoped to meet her and have her read my book. At the same time, I know that I should honor and celebrate the fantastic, rich, full life that she led. I feel blessed that I had the privilege to read her writings and glean some life-altering lessons from them. My most important personal motto, “Everything in moderation –…

Full Moon Music (Re-blogged)

Tonight’s full moon is the second one in this month, making it a “Blue Moon.” There will be no full moon in February of this year; the last time this occurred was in 1999.

There is also a total lunar eclipse, which will be visible before the moon sets in the morning hours. People in the Midwestern USA, and as far west as Hawai’i, will be able to view this beautiful sight.

To mark this astronomical event, I offer up three moon-related songs for our collective auditory enjoyment. Go ahead – do some dancing in the moonlight.

Friday Fun-Time…My Sweet Tooth! (Re-blogged)

No new “Last Week Tonight,” so I figured I’d re-blog this “Five on Friday” post instead.

It’s a Mercury Retrograde Monday!

😎

Eyrie Of An Aries

Anyone who has REALLY read my blog for any length of time knows that I am a relatively healthy, active woman. I enjoy exercising and eating right, but I also have my own personal pleasures and mild indulgences from time to time! One of my favourite mottoes has always been “Everything in moderation…including moderation!” Thank you to the late, great, estimable, epic, phenomenal Maya Angelou for that quote; I’d been using it since junior high school, but learned that she was the originator of it, only a few years ago. Great Aries minds think alike at times, I’d say!

Anyway, this “Fun Friday Facts” post is about my sweet tooth and five of my favourite sugary treats, followed by three syrupy-sweet songs! Let’s get the ball rolling…

Lindt brand LINDOR truffles: they’re simply divine, in my estimation…I only like the milk chocolate, and one 75-piece bag will last me…

Sepultura’s Saturday Screen-Shots: Steampunk City! (Re-blogged)

Eyrie Of An Aries

Here’s a small selection of some of my most recent in-game screen-shots, as promised! In these images I’m exploring the new, steampunk-styled land of The Elder Scrolls Online, the awesome game that I enjoy playing. I’ll be live-streaming some gameplay later on this evening, so tune in to my Twitch channel if you’re awake, grab a drink and a snack, and watch the fun!

Sampling a freshly-made batch of the old crone’s brew.

Flame-inspired meditation in the forest…very relaxing.

A new tree has sprung up in the garden of the grand manor…

It is certainly an interesting addition!

The entrance to the city of cogs and gears.

What the…? I’m shrinking!

Facing off against an army of automatons…

There – that should take care of them!

The new scenery is fascinating, and quite pleasing to the eye.

New quests and adventures await the intrepid explorer!

Paying due…

International Images for International Women’s Day (Re-blogged)

😎

Eyrie Of An Aries

I decided to post some multi-cultural images in observation of International Women’s Day. Other blogs and articles that I read today are strictly focused on European or Asian women, so I wanted to give those of us who are severely under-represented the spotlight!
