Before You Know It 2015 Will Be Here. Make 2014 Count!

 

Google Doodle

Hello Everyone. I’m still taking a mini-break (although you can go to the blog’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for real-time updates). I will share why I half-forced myself to step away for a breather after 6 years of non-stop posts when I resume the new schedule. [...]

David Bowie & Iman: Is This Love Or What?

Let’s all come together for a collective “aww shucks” because after two decades of wedded bliss, Mr. and Mrs. Jones seem to still be going strong. The examples of their shared values and similar goals are key for a relationship to thrive.

I was going to include this in my weekly breakdown post, but realized it was going to be longer than a few sentences. I’ve bumped it up to post level.

I tried to stifle a groan and move on, but there’s been a dozen articles in response to some [...]

I just want to piggyback off a recent post by Khadija over at Muslim Bushido,  African-American Slave Consumers’ Addiction to “Business As Usual” Vs. Escape Velocity.

That’s rowing jargon. Instead of using a simulated exercise gizmo, do the real thing. On the water. In a boat. Check out your local rowing club and join a class for beginner lessons.  Of course you might want to have some minimal swimming skills just in case. And you will socialize and mingle with the yacht [...]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPAat-T1uhE”

Namely, how much perceived beauty is a serious advantage. Hoffman reflects during an interview with the American Film Institute on his now iconic role in Tootsie. He also discusses the “interesting” women he personally passed on getting to know better (smh).  Live and learn, right?

The lesson I see here is:

Alrighty, I Could Have Posted This Yesterday

http://youtu.be/pXVlQTC2yB0

I logged offline a bit and see some people are still – and will forever be – focused on causes, plights, fights and drama that should never cross their mental thresholds. It’s interesting to have had enough distance from looking at the world a certain way to see what folly people engage in [...]

I Know It's Hard To Believe, But There Is More At Stake Than Defending Paula Deen, What KimYe Named Their Baby Or The Weekend Box Office.

Not even the never-ending battles for control of oil, precious metals and human cargo is new news. 1984-style monitoring was a) already predicted b) ongoing across several previous administrations (it’s a major plot point on The Americans and their timeline is the 1980’s).
