Monday Motivation

Edina & Patsy

"Yes" I am here to confirm today is Monday. Thus your Monday Motivation assignment should you choose to accept it is to be Absolutely Fabulous.

When I woke up this morning I pondered the question "What would Patsy and Edina do?" why be totally, 100% Absolutely Fabulous!!!

So riddle me this, what makes you feel all warm and AbFab inside? Navigate to your happy place and enjoy the ride I say.

Thus I leave you with these immortal words via Patsy Stone:

 'The last mosquito that bit me had to check into the Betty Ford clinic'

Monday Motivation indeed!

Current Mood

Moody
Lady Gaga
So even though there was a ban on fireworks in Los Angeles County yesterday, plenty of them were illegally ignited. Luckily no major fires were started and no one (that I've heard of) was injured. 

I actually just heard one go off as I am sitting here at my keyboard clacking away. Thus this brings me to my Current Mood.

This image of  Lady Gaga sums it up perfectly. My mood is indescribable and sort of on edge much like this Pippi Longstocking  meets Orphan look that Gaga is sporting.

You know Orphan as in the horror movie Orphan and if you don't know Pippi Longstocking Google that, OK?

Thus I think I will sit with this feeling and make it work. Time to 5th of July Minions!

"Rock For Relief" Tonight!

Riding a new wave of critical acclaim from A Different War, her incredibly timely and most politically charged album to date, widely heralded Biracial blues-rocker DANIELIA COTTON has risen again into the light, fiercely and defiantly, to join a star-studded lineup for “Rock for Relief,” the star-studded benefit concert supporting Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund on July 3 at 8pm ET and again at 11pm ET broadcasted at www.rockforrelief.net.

Presented by United Stations Media Networks and Storic Media Podcast Network, “Rock for Relief” is the latest national spotlight event to heal this tattered nation for Cotton, following her performance at the Juneteenth Tulsa Block Party with Sen. Kamala Harris, Alfre Woodard and others.

“Rock for Relief” arrives as Cotton is entering a “new normal” touring mode with her “Virtual Album Release Tour,” which kicked off last weekend at Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA, simultaneously launching the theater’s virtual concert series as well. Her next stop is July 8 at Tanzman Park in Woodbridge, NJMore dates will be announced shortly.

The “Rock For Relief” benefit show, to raise awareness and donations for families in local communities across the nation, will be hosted by Lou Brutus and Riki Rachtman with talent interviews conducted by Alice Cooper and Joe Satriani. [View Trailer]Cotton joins a stellar line-up of performers that includes headliner Corey Taylor alongside Gavin Rossdale, George Thorogood, Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles), Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge), Lzzy Hale & Joe Hottinger (Halestorm), Jesse Hasek (10 Years), Filter, Lisa Loeb, The Dead Daisies, Chris Robertson (Black Stone Cherry), Starset, Brandon Saller (Atreyu), Ricky Byrd, Bobby Whitlock & CoCo Carmel, Joe Grushecky, Kathy Sledge, Bones Owens, BJ Thomas, Matt Bigland (Dinosaur Pile-Up) and more, with special appearances by Peter Frampton and Adam Gontier of Saint Ansonia.

Feeding America estimates that an additional 17.1 million people could be food insecure in 2020 as a result of this crisis – for a total of 54.3 million people, or 1 in every 6 people. This is a 46% increase over the 37.2 million people who were food insecure prior to the COVID-19 crisis.

Cotton will be performing an acoustic version, on piano, of “A Different War,” the title track from her latest album, which finds the woman whose music is “soulful enough to fill a revival tent” (The New York Times) and whose voice gives her songs “stunning power” (No Depression) speaking to these extraordinary times by unloading her sin while the world around her is gripped in a turbulent spin.

She will be joined for this special live performance by prominent Bronx hip-hop artist Mickey Factz, reprising his guest appearance on the original album track. “A Different War” examines how the reality of people of color getting called into battle as a result of being marginalized informs their entire existence. The song also urges us to press ahead because of the ongoing need for substantive change.

Michael's Musings

Michael Shinafelt
"Lift Your Wings and Show Them How Much Hell an Angel Can Cause" - Wisteria Andrews 

"Yes" this quote is the perfect summary as to what kind of angel I would be, and quite frankly am. Don't let those wings and the look of serenity fool you. Thus it's time to see how much Hell I can cause, ready set, wings in lift position and take off!!!

You ate camel meat and you're afraid of a roach?!

Not every flower can say love, but a rose can. Not every c#nt can read. but wow! Look at you having a go!

If you live in Florida apparently Meth Gators are a thing

Speaking of which, Carole Baskin is on Cameo, your welcome

Beavis and Butthead are coming back on Comedy Central...Yes!

Reality is a hoax, something to think about...

Vanilla Ice "We didn't have Coronavirus in the 1990's" this says a lot about him

Carl Reiner passed away Monday evening. This came as a surprise to me since mere hours before he was on Twitter calling out Trump.


Woman Crush of the Week: Katy Perry, because she is absolutely radiant during her pregnancy and because "Daisies hits the top 10 of the #AdultPopSongs airplay chart this week, rising 11-10. She becomes the fifth artist in history with 16 career top tens" Congrats!

BTW I have a friend named Karen, who isn't a "Karen"

Hump Day & Chill

Current Mood
Kyle MacLachlan
While on Instagram yesterday I spied this whimsical image of Kyle MacLachlan in my feed, obviously I follow him on there. It made me smile and I felt it captures my Current Mood quite nicely on this July 1st Hump Day & Chill Thank You very much.

It also got me thinking about one of my favorite films of all time Showgirls, in which Kyle played the powerful sleaze Zack Carey. A film which that was an embarrassment to him at the time, but he is glad it took on a life of it's own as a "crowd-pleaser."

One of my fond memories of Showgirls aside from MacLachlan's delightfully slimy portrayal of Zack is the many shots of his supple booty. "Yes" Kyle has a nice full fleshy bottom that is a joy to behold.

Thus I surfed over to Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things just knowing I would see those gratuitous images of the MacLachlan bum. Lo and behold I did! Turns out Tye revisited Showgirls this past April with many shots of Kyle's backside.

So let's celebrate July with some buns to Hump Day & Chill to, get your red hot MacLachlan Buns by hitting the link below!!!

Black Rainbow


Mike Hodges (Flash Gordon, Get Carter) wrote and directed this supernatural chiller as a meditation on the human race's ability to destroy the world, a gothic tale of suspense and the occult, guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. Martha Travis (Rosanna Arquette, Pulp Fiction, Crash) is a travelling clairvoyant on the road with her sceptic father (Jason Robards, Once Upon a Time in the West, Magnolia). During a séance Martha communicates a message from a dead man to his wife in the audience. Shocked the wife insists her husband is still alive. Later that evening the husband is killed by a ruthless assassin. As Martha foresees more and more tragic events journalist Gary Wallace (Tom Hulce, Amadeus, Animal House) follows the pair in pursuit of a hot story... with catastrophically eerie results. Sent direct to cable by its struggling distributor on initial release, Black Rainbow unfairly never got the exposure it deserved, newly restored from the original negative audiences can now discover the darkness at the end of the rainbow, as never before.
