French TV

“Holy Shit!”
The only words spoken by a French television crew when watching (and capturing) the World historic “moment.”

September 11, 2001 — A French television crew, covering a broken water line in Lower Manhattan, was attracted to the loud hum of a screaming commercial jetliner as it passed overhead and seconds later crashed into the North Tower of The World Trade Center, and exploded into a ball of fire.

Ani DiFranco  — “It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad World”

The day I met Ani DiFranco before her show in Hollywood, Florida’s Downtown Circle Park, was the same day TIME magazine’s “special” Shock and Awe issue had just hit the stands. It almost seemed to celebrate George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq. Knowing Ani was always politically and socially active, I thought to drop a copy and a pen in front of her, and waited to see what she’d say. …

Rolling Stones

Bernard Fowler had been a Rolling Stone since joining the band for its “Steel Wheels” reunion tour in 1989. Since then, Bernard has been around the world many many times, regularly playing to audiences of hundreds of thousands. The difference in 2016 was that  such a show had never be seen in Cuba. The World’s biggest and most enduring Rock N Roll band was first into the country after its brief opening, and 500,000 Cubans were in Havana to see it.

((( protest )))

a “good” christian woman’s place is in the womb.
Why do you think they called it a Bikini?

So anxious to see Jesus when he returns, white nationalist christians, neo Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and today’s Republican Party, all Pray For Armageddon. Christians call it “The Second Coming,” and they’re Hell-Bent on being around to see it, and
There’s a Good, God-fearing reason they call it a Bikini. “Bikini” was the Pacific Island where the first nuclear bomb was exploded, and it was a clever creative director who saw the value in all those “i”s in selling a itsy bitzy, controversially small piece of optional clothing. 

So a woman’s place is in the womb, that is, unless she looks good more than half naked, selling fast food and cold beverages in a Christian-sanctioned, billion-dollar Superbowl Ad.

May the Truth be With You.

“The World Would Have To End Without Willie.”

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING: Since the Renaissance, Naked Women have proven to be the best artistic to sell whatever it was a businessman wanted to sell. Let’s think about it. Maybe something else … No.Yes.Coke.No, NAKED WOMEN IS IT. Open homosexuality, mixed-race marriages, and physically challenged athletes came later. No matter the content, it is sad to see that HONESTY ISN’T NECESSARILY THE BEST POLICY, especially for those WILLING TO LIE for MONEY, POWER, AND GREED. (Regardie’s) We know there are many criminally minded liars in the world, and we also know, IT ONLY TAKES TWO TO RUIN A GAME.
