I smoked em, luckys for the longest time
with that taste of spice and pepper
like the irishmen back then
swore em off a long time ago
you ask me why I’ll tell ya they’re easy
too easy to get used to wanting
like potato chips
and satin drawers
silken on the skin and salty in the mouth
21 years of service to this country.
2 days before he was scheduled to retire and receive his pension.
after months upon months of public humiliation and degradation of FBI.
where does this end? when does it end?
I'm no fangirl of law enforcement but I appreciate them, truthfully appreciate all public servants - especially those who work in services that run into situations the rest of us run away from.
they're not perfect, but they're honorable and…Continue
.... cause the evil incompetent clown who does not make us smile is on his way out the door.
No not Russia. God forbid the doucheroni congress does anything worthwhile in that dept.
Nono - this is about Stormy Daniels. Her lawyer - during an interview answering a direct question from Mica on Morning Joe - alleged Ms. Daniels was threatened with physical harm - not clear yet when or by who - but he claimed she was threatened in direct relation to the agreement and her sexual…Continue
this week has been hard. I'm sick - getting better but today I am exhausted, there are some family things - nothing major but when someone in my little family hurts, I hurt.
and then there are The Children - I am touched by how hard they're fighting, how earnest and trusting in the system...it's inspiring, but depressing, you know? why…Continue
theyre passionate and verbose and intelligent and committed to making the deaths of 17 count for more than another depressing statistic.
these brave children are determined to stop the gun insanity. now.
put some fire in your belly and support them!
Emma Gonzalez's speech may be the most powerful speech I've heard since the Obama speech at the '04 Dem convention. And apparently the president agrees. He's spent the morning tweeting, tweet after tweet, meandering and…Continue
we did you know - dance free, dance anywhere, there were no upscale restaurants, no parks with cast iron railings and ferrys on the river. what was on the edge of brooklyn heights were piers and ships that brought in our coffee and spices and the longshoremen who went into the holds to unload…Continue
Normay, cagey recipients of our sick advanced american game technology in the form of 52 "F-52 and F-35" fighter jets recently delivered via high end playstations and whatnots, today continued their world domination by kicking total international men's ass in the cross country skiathlon event - Simen Hegstad Krueger won gold in the most homeric fashion, falling initially, banging his head, having to change his poles, losing over 40 seconds,…Continue
little miss naked maja
this is the winsome pinkie, aka pinkster, aka the boss, little monster, and lately Svetlana because of her baleful very tragic russian expression. (if you look closely, she's actually smiling.)
she's a happy little dog but…Continue
The first three are in the works - the last of them is a major fail that I keep beating to shit...I don't think it's finished although it might be because I may have killed the shit out of it.
I've actually liked it in each incarnation but the next day I look and I think "UGH". I KNOW that's because the color sinks and it will be fine when I varnish...but if I'm honest, there's SOMEthing missing so I keep beating it. ("fine" never works for me.) (if I don't…Continue
I'm doin it - my thang. Today is my birthday. I can't even SAY how old I am, THAT"S how old I am.
Just started a new painting. I'm into the flowers. I'm also into working some old unfinished paintings. I'm painting the grandkids.
just below is a new painting - started yesterday. I like to work them until they scream. my…Continue
finally found the song I kept hearing in my head that inspired the above painting.
this painting is titled: take me to the river.
the story is, as I was working on other…Continue
when I'm in the studio I like to listen jazzradio.fr. they play music I haven't heard in years like sammy davis jr who lately blows me away like crazy, plus music I've never heard before - like this one (below) by Paolo Conte.
As an aside, there's a cut they play sometimes of "Take Me to the River" not exactly the al green version - the singer is white - you know the type of stylist, she uses an anemic…
I love gospel music, I sometimes think more than any other genre. It's pure love and you can't touch that. Edwin Hawkin's "Oh Happy Day" is a stellar example of great gospel - unbridled vocals, spiraling exaltations and shouting and ultimately what you are in the presence of is magnificence and rejoicing. I wish I had that faith because if I did, this is exactly where I'd be - singing in a choir.…Continue
the idiot fucker is a tank, as healthy as a horse AND he had a cognitive exam - which according to his physician, he PASSED with flying colors.
so it's not madness, it's simple stupidity.
oh...and he's an evil, miserable piece of shit, on top of it.
The beginning of FIRE AND FURY by Michael Wolff specifically focuses on Bannon. There are anecdotes about the idiot but the real picture is of Bannon the Believer and the idiot king as his vehicle to create the ultra right dream state.
But like anyone in mad love - and make no bones about it - Bannon was mad for Trump - he KNEW what he had which is a man with no allegiances, no philosophy, no vision but a great gift. Trump is an idiot savant when it comes to marketing…Continue
got my copy!
opens during the campaign - there he sits contented after polishing off a pint of haagen daz vanilla.
if the idiot's eating habits offer a clue - his brain is in a state of…Continue
Yes it is!
the black vote was pivotal!
This is the nightmare the republicans feared would happen nine years ago. This is why they tried to diminish obama - he inspired hope in the silent nonvoting people of color, the young, women.
It took a degenerate idiot to reawaken the sleeping giant.
Power to the people!
I'm not maligning or trying to diminish ME TOO stories because I've got quite a few of my own. as I wrote in a comment recently - I do not know one woman, NOT ONE who has not had a ME TOO moment or experience in the form of an errant tongue, words, or a hand put to the body in the most unexpected, unwanted, untoward and very uncomfortable manner.
and yet this wasn't that. but what it was, I have never been able to explain even to myself, except it bothered me that he went…Continue
