Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today is a sad day, it’s a sad day for anyone who knows ANYTHING about music, it’s a sad day for music itself.

Please join us as we pay tribute to “The Queen of Soul” Miss Aretha Franklin

FangSmith – 
Makeup, wigs, contacts and fangs. What is costume and what is glamour, really?

Is it illusion, a visual lie, a trick for the eyes of others? Is it a way to seek empowerment or to work out who we really are? What happens inside ourselves when we don costumery?

Or is the real costume the skin that you wear every day? Is the makeup, the wig, the glamour, more like who you really are deep down inside?

I feel I don’t recognise myself or feel at home in my own body until a mirror reflects eyes heavy with liner. It’s like my body sighs, “Here I am,” and I am home.”

…annnnd a way up from the rocky mountain way…

I have chosen a somewhat low key approach to this week’s piece, it doesn’t seem to be a time for jokes and for ribald tomfoolery. There are so many things in the world that seem to deserve worrying about and we spend so much time doing just that that we tend to forget to kick back and not think about anything. So many small dramas, so many unresolved disputes, so many, seemingly, insurmountable obstacles and then, every once in a while, an extraordinary person comes along that seems to speak, through their art, straight to the heart and to the most important “forgotten” things.

“We all require and want respect, man or woman, black or white. It’s our basic human right.”
~ Aretha Franklin ~

Thank you for sharing this time with us, be safe and well everyone.

THE WEEKLY BIATCH

 

Novelist Tom Clancy said it…
“The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.”

So, here we have this amazing, awe-inspiring, sprawling, global, almost instantaneous information system. On the many, many, many ends of it’s tendrils we have, within our culture, a large number of folks of whom others say… “Oh, you really need to get in contact with such-and-such, they know EVERYTHING about that…!!!”

Ohhhh… is that right… so… ummmm…where is this information? Locked in a cupboard in the cellar? Sealed in a airtight bag in the freezer guarded by automatic cannons and a pack of Rottweilers? Do they keep it all hardcopied and stored jealously away in some hidden self-store unit?
OR

Is it only shared with a certain “class” of associates? Is it kept within a small circle so that, “you can control people”, is this like the “1%” that everyone tells me owns and runs the United States?

Ever wondered where this information goes? Is used? Is circulated? Because I’ll tell ya one thing… seems like the great unwashed masses are seen as a…

YEP, HE FUCKIN’ WELL SAID THAT AND DON’T BE GETTIN’ ALL PISSY AND WHINY ABOUT HOW SO-AND-SO DID ALL THE WORK BLAH, BLAH, FUCKIN’ BLAH…!!!

YA WANNA SEE SOME ELITIST NARCISSISM??? SUCK ON THIS…

Well-ah, Well-ah, Well-ah… might as well finish off in the right frame…

Here’s one for some very fine people I have known in my life, amazing people who have a culture and spirit that dates back some 40,000 years or more, some people I have worked with, broken bread with, drank and danced with (Yep, I’ve been to a stompin’ ground) and I’ll tell ya what – some of the finest bruddahs ‘n’ sheilas I’ve ever known…

Go Warumpi…!!!

T.G.I. Frīge’s day

img. source: Marzec 2010, Pantheion

Thrown together for ya in a complete state of disarray but who really gives, right? Edited, roughly, Written, naturally and Perpetrated by
T.

Yep, yep, don’t worry, here it is…

First things bloody first…

Yes, yes, oh yea… it’s Frīge’s day…
“In Germanic mythology, Frigg (/frɪɡ/;[1] Old Norse), Frija (Old High German), Frea (Langobardic), and Frige (Old English) is a goddess. In nearly all sources, she is described as the wife of the god Odin. In Old High German and Old Norse sources, she is also connected with the goddess Fulla. The English weekday name Friday (etymologically Old English “Frīge’s day”) bears her name.

Frigg is described as a goddess associated with foreknowledge and wisdom in Norse mythology, the northernmost branch of Germanic mythology and most extensively attested. Frigg is the wife of the major god Odin and dwells in the wetland halls of Fensalir, is famous for her foreknowledge, is associated with the goddesses Fulla, Lofn, Hlín, and Gná, and is ambiguously associated with the Earth, otherwise personified as an apparently separate entity Jörð (Old Norse “Earth”).” [2]

 

…and you thought it was because you’re supposed to eat fried Chicken and Fries today…!!!

So… anyway…
Ma Parker and her son Carr are putting together a gang and they have four prospective accomplices together in a warehouse. Ma looks at the first one and says, “Whadda they call you kid?”

He answers, “Sammy Nineteen” as he lays a gleaming Smith and Wesson Model 19 on a table.
She nods approvingly and looks at the next one, “Whadda they call you kid?”

He answers, “Carlo Remington ma’am” and he lays a gleaming Remington Model 870 pump action shotgun on the table.
She nods her approval and looks at the third, “Whadda they call you son?”

He answers, “Thompson Ms. Parker” as he lays out a hand engraved walnut stock Thompson submachine gun on the table.
Again she nods her approval and then turns her attention to the fourth punk, a skinny, sharp dressed African American, “Whadda they call you kid?”
“Arlo Forteen” he replies but doesn’t make a move.

“Well, Arlo Forteen, whadda ya packin’?”

Arlo smirks and pulls his weapon out and slaps it down on the table. Ma Parker fainted…

THE WEEKLY BIATCH…!!!

Okay, here’s a scenario for ya…

A person is in an online group, said person is acting up a bit, making an ass of themselves and is gently told so, told that it might be in their best interests to calm down a bit.

Said person splits and makes own group, goes “member shopping” on everybody else’s “friends list” and drops them all in the new group, ZAP, Zero to 136 in a couple of hours…!!!

Next thing they are bleeding the original group they were in of material to fill up their own sad little effort…!!!

What’s a good name for a person like that? What about sycophantic little nut-sucking douche???

What’s that? “Don’t worry, it happens all the time.” Yeah, taxes and death happens all the time too and they ain’t pleasant things either…!!!

Obviously said Douche didn’t bother reading, “So, you want your own empire.”

Hey, amigo, break out the frickin’ Tequila…!!!

REMEMBER: RVL advocates responsible consumption of alcohol, DON”T DRINK AND DRIVE, RVL Warns that The United States Surgeon General has deemed smoking to be a health hazard.

Iz okay, you can have sex if you want… responsibly…!!!

Gonna get th’ FUCK outta here now and pour meself another one… until next time I remind you that if you do get caught remember the words to this song…
