We live in a police state, and we all accept this as normal until we see that it is not. How can we scale back on police militarization and over incarceration of people of color? There is a real problem all over the United States with public mistrusting the law enforcement officials. When this much unethical behavior becomes public it makes us start to examine how much of this kind of fascist activity is taking place where we live.
The games of today, both digital and physical demand creativity. Here is one that combines agility with costuming with insane French scenery. Are you into games?
I want to talk and compare an app that most of you don’t have access to: Facebook Mentions and compare it to the Pages App that anyone who has a Facebook page can download and use.
I found out about Facebook Mentions from a banner ad that was at the top of my Facebook account earlier this week…
I have just found out about Betty Bowers, Christian Crack Whore. How did I miss her all this time? She has a lot to say about the state of affairs.
Weird Al has nailed it. There is something so poignant about his sense of timing for me. I am here in the hippest (maybe the takiest) place on earth….Texas. You just go, Al!!!!
Austin has changed quite a bit since I came to UT as a freshman in 1968…and yet some thing remain ever the same
The Texas State Cemetery in Austin is a grand resting place for historically important Texans. Lyndon Johnson is not here, but Stephen F Austin and Barbara Jordan are. The gallery has a wonderful display that puts Texas history into perspective and shows some documents and implements used in the old days. I love the way the represent history, but it does have the feel of a segregated and corrupt society.
How do you relate to the selfie craze? I am not a selfie taker, but I do sometimes find those of others amusing. If you track a selfie history of someone you can do a fake psycho analysis of them. Do you think selfies will eventually lead to another even more narcissistic practice we have not yet conceived ( like all of us in full time reality shows)?
Dance Hall Girls was my anthem for many years because I spent those years dancing like crazy fire. My parents adored honkey tonks and danced everywhere they went. I am fixin’ to go to Austin to become a vacation dance hall girl by night. The choices bogle the mind, but I am looking forward to sorting them out and partaking in as many as possible. There will be two fantastic Blues on the Green concerts for free during my visit which will remind me of the Zilker Park of my youth. A friend of mine thought she would make me jealous saying she had just returned from Wyoming where she wore down vests and got cold. I told her I planned to do just the opposite. I am going to dance and sweat to live music in a place where I do not have to be afraid of the Mexican food. I am fix in’ to have a real good time.
