I give all my homies an "A" for effort, but some things CANNOT be fixed.....cause they ain't BROKEN :)


Another year has ended and another begins....WELCOME 2014!

I wanted to take a moment to just say some things that weigh on my heart and in my head.

People delude themselves into thinking that heaven on earth means acquiring, chasing, or obtaining things or people.... but they are sadly mistaken.
HEAVEN, is not FAME, WEALTH , POWER nor does it belong to the person with the MOST BELONGINGS.

As someone who has suffered their entire life with depression and a mood disorder, I can assure you that YOU CAN have money in the bank, but if you still want to die, then the attainment of wealth and fame is not the way to heaven for ANY ONE.

LIFE is a walk, a journey...and NO ONE knows where their journey will END...all you can do is KEEP MOVING FORWARD, KEEP LOVING AND PEACEFUL COMPANY, run to those whose smiles warm your cold soul like a huge roaring fire, run from those who make you feel cold and lonely...even in their presence.

FIND SHELTER wherever you can thru LIFE'S STORMS....but always remember, EVERY STORM WILL PASS....along the road on your journey.... try to plant smiles on the faces of those who need them most and give hugs to others who have been left out in the cold.....your kindness and love will create more kindness and love.....even if it takes longer than you like....even with one pair of shoes on your feet and barely a coat to keep you warm...always think of yourself as a GARDNER OF LOVE as you continue on your journey and when you find your heart is low on love, or a smile is hard to find...this is when someone on their journey will WATER you with love and kindness...and soon you will have the strength to continue on...

NEVER WORRY about where your JOURNEY ENDS....focus every moment on making each step you take, each town you enter, each place you exit, every person you meet....LEAVE THEM ALL still feeling the sun from your smiles, the strength in your hand as you helped them up in when they were down, hearing your words of encouragement echo in their ears when no one had ever spoken them before, remembering the warmth in the embrace you gave them when their souls felt cold....THIS IS LIFE.....AND THIS IS WHAT JESUS DID time and time again...he worried not about the end of his journey but about the souls he could touch as he to those without, helping those unable to help themselves, bestowing kindness and hope to those who have never knew hope....this is what we all should do...

HEAVEN IS NOT A PLACE OR A DESTINATION .....heaven is a gift to be received....and all of us have the ability to share some of it with someone else..... and it is FREE......

CNN- Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?
Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E's "Duck Dynasty," won't be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after he made controversial remarks about gays and blacks in a magazine interview.
Robertson told the interviewer that he never saw "the mistreatment of any black person" during his 67 years living in the south.
In the January issue of GQ, Robertson says homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity.
"It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical," he's quoted as saying.

I'm black and grew up quite near to were Phil currently resides and this whole media blitz about his thoughts on gays, religion, blacks, the olden days. etc IS JUST NOT SHOCKING!! black church going father could have said almost all of the same things 70 yr old Phil said in GQ....that old man just spoke his Southern, confederate flag lovin, bible thumpin mind and all he wants to do is shoot birds out of the sky and and sharpen his knife all day anyway...hiatus is a gift to him, I'm sure  more folks just like him will continue to watch the show and A&E will continue to rake in advertiser's dough...I do not agree with his beliefs, but I don't understand the SURPRISE that some folks seem to have that he voiced them....look at him and if you watched the show you'd see he prob. has no Black or gay Bff's :)

DOG LOVER- Stephanie Mikles

This headline really says almost all you need to know about this SAD, SAD, ICK NAST situation. I just have 2 thoughts:

1. Who is representing the poor innocent canine who was molested by it's own MOTHER, Stephanie Mikles? ( animal lovers know what I mean) Will the animal receive some time of counseling or therapy or something? You can't have this innocent dog thinking all female humans are as huge an ANIMAL LOVER as his mom, or he'll be trying to wrestle and hump every female it sees.

2. After this TEACHER thought long and hard about the ethical and moral questions that arise when deciding to engage in sexual activity with your family pet and obviously getting the go ahead from her inner pet-o-phile, what made her think that having photographs taken of this momentous event would be the cherry on the top of this SICK AZZ SUNDAE??????

Oh, I do have another thought, 3. I think the rest of the family needs therapy as well, because it's not fair to the dog, if the family keeps it and the poor creature spends the rest of it's days being given the side eye by it's family members for an incident, I know "the dog" did NOT initiate!

Justin Timberlake might have brought "SEXY BACK" in 2006, but in 2013, R&B crooner, Robin Thicke, proves with his latest single, BLURRED LINES and it's accompanying video that "SEXY" is his middle name, his astrological sign, his user name for every website everywhere, what he has for breakfast, what was listed as his name on his driver's license. etc. I could go on, the man just IS SEZZZZY.

Now after viewing his new video directed by music video director, Diane Martel, some folks have found the visuals of the women in the video (DAMN, THERE ARE WOMEN IN THE VIDEO?) to be offensive and degrading to women.

I thought I would just share a few thoughts how important READING is to a person's intellect and how a book gives insight into topics, people, places, issues, one might not come in contact with in their daily personal life. BOOKS FEED YOUR MIND & YOUR PERSONALITY!!!

With this being said, here we go:

 (not specifically book related- but dang sure related to how important it is to Read)

 I watched the premiere episode of this new 1 hr reality show last night on LIFETIME, called PRETTY WICKED MOMS.

Due to the fact that I have worked in television production as a Researcher, Clearance Coordinator, Producer and Writer among other job titles, I will not give my true personal opinion of the show itself

Today is Good Friday and after coming across this disturbing video of some deeply religious folks in the Phillipines re-enacting the crucifixion of Jesus, well I just had to show you the video and add my 2 cents. Because we all know by now, I ALWAYS have 2 cents to share about every subject under the sun.

Why would anyone think Jesus is going to be touched and impressed by all these folks reminding him about the worst day in his life. I know if my friends wanted to impress me, re-enacting the day my marriage fell apart certainly wouldn't be the way to do it.

Let's accept the fact that I have not immersed myself in religious theology deeply. When I was growing up in the boondocks of Southern Louisiana, ( where my Southern Baptist momma forced me and my two sisters to attend church and Sunday school EVERY Sunday), at least once a month I would attempt to use my monthly period and it's accompanying cramps to get out of going to Sunday service.

update as of 10/2014
RIP my fave vintage used book store

630 E Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91101
Neighborhood: Pasadena
(626) 449-9541

I love, love , love books and every other weekend when I have a free Saturday, I spend hours in used book stores and thrift shops in my area, purchasing cool, old, out of print books that need new homes with people who will appreciate them. One of my fave haunts is CLIFF'S BOOKS in Pasadena.

Well anyway, owner, Cliff Gildart’s bookstore, CLIFF'S BOOKS  has been voted BEST USED BOOKSTORE IN PASADENA, L.A. AREA 19 times since the store opened 25 years ago in 1985 at the same location, 635 E. Colorado Ave.

The bookstore is dusty and old and perfect for spending hours for searching for that perfect book or author, that you haven’t seen in print in decades.
Cliff’s Books is specifically for folks who love reading and love the feel and smell of an old and well crafted book.  What Cliff’s books brings to the community is something that will not be missed until his shop is closed.

Cliff is elderly and ill and now they have a 50% sale on all books as they are looking for new owners or trying to afford to close down. 
My heart breaks.

Check out this ARTICLE on the store from January of this year.

Also go to KFI AM 640 and email Jon & Ken asking them to do a CASHMOB at Cliff's Books.

I applaud LIL POOPY'S parents ( using this term in the legal sense only), for  recognizing that your child is never too young to begin acquiring skills and training that he will need for his future career. This music video showing LIL POOPY acting like a mini drug-dealing, misogynistic pimp confirms his parents are thinking about their young son's future. Forget pushing your kids towards the fields of science, medicine, education or any of the hundreds of other BO-RING fields of study available for a young bright mind.

 NO, LIL POOPY was destined for FAME & FORTUNE.

 Like model "parents of the year" before them, LIL POOPY'S parents are taking a page from the PIMP YOUR CHILD handbooks of Lindsay Lohan's mom, that Khardassian mom, and thousands of other PIMPS disguised as PARENTS who see their children as nothing more than $$$. Unfortunately, if no ADULT who truly cares about this poor boy steps in and says ENOUGH, this innocent  child will be used by adults in horrible ways and have his little psyche traumatized before he exits elementary school and all for FAME AND MONEY. 

Luie Rivera Jr  is a child and should be allowed to speak, dress and play like a child with other children for the duration of the time he IS A CHILD! 
Sorry if that means, mom and dad have to go to work and carpool and cut coupons like millions of other parents who love their kids enough to allow them to be kids and not little moneymakers.

It's really sad to see Little Luie has been betrayed so young by his own PARENTS oops I meant PIMPS.

WAS ELISA LAM BIPOLAR? last update 10/2014

UPDATE AS OF 10/26/2014- more LINKS for you guys to read...

I had no idea when I first wrote a post about the disappearance of Elisa Lam that other souls from all corners of the globe captivated by her innocent smile, youthful sense of adventure, troubling back story and mysterious and haunting death would find their way here to my lowly blog.

I have been honored by the passion and concern that every reader who has come here has shown towards Elisa herself.

I wish upon a million nickels in a well, that Elisa could have known in her young troubled life, that she possessed something so enthralling and ethereal that in her death she would haunt the souls, hearts and minds of complete strangers for years all because of the strange and mysterious end of her young life.

If only she could have known how special she was.

Here are some links to several articles I have found posted in 2014, since I last posted my update last year, 2013. ( please let me know if a link does not work)
