"I get very passionate about what I think is right."-Hillary Rodham Clinton

I can take it….I was a regular poster on the Etsy fora…

Well, I wanted to write some of my thoughts about the connection between Confederacy of Dunces and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?…but I have been distracted. Say what you will about the internet, it has definitely gotten people together in ways I thought would never be possible. (Seeing as I am a coming from a Medieval History background.) I think that the lack of facial connections and body language that many use to pick up on people’s feelings when they talk to each other is so lost when we interact online. It is almost as if everyone that interacts online experiences an Autism of sorts…in that they are unable to genuinely comprehend the tone or character of someone’s post…that there is a disconnect there…an inability to grasp at the emotional content.

That said, I do feel that I have grown thick-skinned over the last few years. Since I started becoming active in online community during the Clinton primary of 2008. Hell, I was a regular poster over on the Etsy fora, and believe me I have had my share of bullying from the fold. (Speaking of bullies, feral cat definitely comes to my mind…) You have to put up with a lot of shit over at Etsy and Artfire (those handcrafted/artisan sites) because everyone is so damn opinionated. Well, you can say that about any online community really. I stood my own over at Etsy, hell I did not get the EtsyBitch Award for Valor for telling the Etsy admin “Fuck you” for nothing….

So, as it is, believe me…I am in no way going to go through that whole thing of picking sides and bucking for any one particular person or blog. (Even if my “spirit animal” is a wolf, who protects its pack to the very end.) All this frustration from the thing called life is just exhausting. Well that is my rant for today….I feel better now.

  • Sunday Reads: Don’t expect humanity from a #ShitholePresident
        When talking about the racist president in the White House… (and I still can’t believe a year later that turd of a man is the president.) Whether, it be Asshole or Shithole, both words describe both his personality and outlook on and to humanity. Well, I should place a caveat there and state […]
  • Wednesday Reads: Need a Laugh
    Yeah, that image above is perfect. That about puts my family’s emotional state on display, “Fuck it all  Man.” My mom’s cancer is back and if you remember, surgery was not an option because of her blood issues and problems with anti-bodies…and chemotherapy was difficult because she could not tolerate the medicine cocktail that was […]
  • Sunday Reads: Make This Weird
    Do you think some people consciously start the day saying something like that to themselves? It’s going to get weird…I’m going to make this weird. I think tRump surrounds himself with people who have that sentence as their mantra… I would say that tRump also makes this his chosen path to follow, but I am […]
  • Wednesday Reads: Between a Rock, a Cock and a Hard Place
    Which way do you go? That is one tough decision… At any rate, things are getting bad over in the Northeastern United States. I mean, when sharks are becoming “sharkcicles,” it is time to take these cold mutthafukken temperatures for serious. Sharks are freezing to death in the US, due to a record cold winter […]
  • Sunday Reads: New Year 2018
    Hell yes, it is time for another fucking year to roll around. So let us start the party early with this kickass artwork by surreal artist Surazica. There is something about that poodle’s attitude that grabbed my attention. You can scroll through some close-ups here: I don’t know what 2018 will bring, but I do […]
  • Wednesday Reads: Go away, almost everybody hates you…
      The pick slip… If only, right? So did you hear the latest? The White House to cut back magnolia tree planted by Andrew Jackson – The Washington Post The enormous magnolia tree stood watch by the South Portico of the White House for nearly two centuries. Its dark green, glossy leaves shaded politicians and heads of […]
