Let's get this straight. I love movies and I love the Oscars. The Oscar Academy is made up of people who work their asses off to bring us escape from our pitiful, mundane lives. Many times, Hollywood takes us directly into the pitiful,… Read full post »
Why write a protest song?
This is in response to Samuel L . Jackson’s call for celebrities to join him by contributing protest songs to the cause. Only a few have done so, and we know why.
They have too much to lose, since most celebrities work… Read full post »
“There is no greater snob than a self-made man or woman.”
Someone else said it first and I stole it. That statement helps me to check myself. It explains how we tend to forget that our boots came with straps to pull ourselves up… Read full post »
Update, Dec. 7, 2014:
The Black response to this hashtag is #AliveWhileBlack . Black people responded by pouring out their life experiences, and it is heartbreaking. Check it out after reading this post.

This might be the most important thing you read this week. Take time to review your online photo situation. From here on out, use the easy steps to protect yourself and everyone else you post online.
The reality is this: Each digital photos has eight layers of data. One of those… Read full post »
I look at the protest movement today and flash back to my days at CAL. The local Communist party candidate for Mayor wanted to speak with the Black Students Association. He showed up with two White "handlers" who kept interrupting and taking over the conversation.
Fed up with that, I aske… Read full post »
Update November 26: Just talked with a friend who lives in Oakland. Yesterday, she got stuck in the traffic for hours and saw crowds of White people being arrested for blocking the Grand Ave. exit ramp. Go, Oakland!
Let's face it. Everyone is pissed off, and… Read full post »
Back in 2009, I fell in love with Coyote's recipe for Fruity Fun bread. I used to make that bread all the time.
I also love Coyote Old Style and the great things she has done at Open Salon. Today, I decided to return to my fun bread (and Pirate… Read full post »
I wrote about this under the title "Is it time to scream yet?" This is August 19, 2014. Since Amerikkka refuses to get the lesson, it is time to discuss the last teacher who shows up for class.
The phrase "When do we scream?"… Read full post »
NOTE: I actually get paid at the Kiddie Table of news, so here's half of my magnum opus on why isolationism looks good right now.
Please hit the link for the rest. It is a survey of places in the world where we are compelled to help... including at home.… Read full post »
I just had a hankering to write this today. It has been on my mind for decades, and Open Salon is the only place where I can write this. It is about a phenonemon that few people truly percieve and understand. When we are regularly the… Read full post »
What is this stuff about wealth redistribution? What is this Communist manifesto of social deterioration? Are we talking about, a situation where we will be sucking down vodka and singing the Marsiellaise? Eh?

You're just a cheap chump
Your open call tonight
Put me in a funk
My finest gift I bring
My very best words
And there's no PAY for me
And no unicorn
Just bad baseball
Ground ball to third!
So I'll flip a bird
I'll do… Read full post »

When it comes to getting PAID, I will not turn my nose up at the Kiddie table of writing, Bubblews. I have been making good money there as the site does a simple thing:
It shares half the ad revenue with the content… Read full post »
Just a normal day for me. I went over to Winco to shop for bulk sesame seeds and meat. After successfully toasting brown sesame seeds, I needed to find some white sesame seeds to toast for contrast. When I got to the bulk goodies at Winco, I just lost it and… Read full post »
I wrote this for the kiddie table of free-social-lance-writing at Bubblews. I will share a part of it to entice you to go over there and hear me now and later.
This is my thesis: Some British actors are ugly. They are just bone-buckling ugly and they distract me.… Read full post »
Real heroes who do not make our brains tingle with the idea of extremist politics behind their government whistle-blowing.

I have been following the Fukushima situation for two years. The other day, I was smugly informed that my cell phone gives me as much radiation as Fukushima does. I humbly beg to differ.
My cell phone has no Cesium-137, Strontium 90 or other Fukushima radiation.
UNLESS IT CAME FROM… Read full post »
I came over here because I kept all my true OS friends at Facebook. They send me messages to come here. I made a vow to ignore them and not to come here unless I got PAID. Give me 50/50 on the ad revenue now, you OS clowns!

Balance achieved after months of reminders!
I decided to go derivative tonight. I am so inspired by the months-long osmotic effect of seeing the same post in the left hand feed of a certain open blogging website that I have absorbed the desire to write about the topic… Read full post »
An old friend and I were having the random type of conversation that bordered on philosophically deep when I realized that my friend was not being random. That person was crazy, obsessed with assholes and asking why assholes cannot treat other people right. We had this conversation many times and it… Read full post »
Thousands of writers flounced their butts away from a lot of content mills last year. This was because certain sites were not working as they should have done. We checked in from time to time only to get the mop, the low views, the low pay or the low down.… Read full post »
California must prevail against mad crazy greed, a president who will sell out on any principle and fracking that is out of control.

King Richard III was one power
hungry, mean son of a beyotch. He was the younger brother of King
Edward IV. These were House of York jokers, or
Richard had a singular deformity, a twisted spine. Hang onto that.
