Basically I just copied/pasted this to remember why I'm not into "black leaders."

1-Marcus Garvey talking "Up, You Mighty Race" Black talk, while choosing to marry a light, near-White looking woman.

2-Complaints from BW that W.E.B DuBois only used light-skinned women with naturally wavy hair as cover models for The Crisis Magazine.

3-Walter White of the NAACP dumping his Black wife of 20+ years for a White South African woman.

4-Dr. King cheating on Coretta with White women. All of which was audiotaped by Hoover's FBI, which tried to use these tapes to blackmail Dr. King into committing suicide.

5-Elijah Muhammad cheating on Sis. Clara Muhammad with dozens (if not hundreds) of mostly light-skinned women (and underage girls).

6-The Black Panthers' focus on having sex with non-Black women, as well as their extreme chauvinism.

7-Rev. "Baby Daddy" Jesse Jackson cheating on his wife. My mother kept an old magazine interview with Rev. Jackson from the early 1970s where he's quoted as saying "variety is the spice of life" when asked about his marriage.

8-Ben Chavis paying out NAACP money to settle a sexual harassment suit from a female employee.

9-Kweisi Mfume's scandal at the NAACP involving his womanizing. Also, didn't he have 5-6 sons out of wedlock (or something like that)?

Another WOW!

I am a firm believer in posting things that I love and feel could expand someone's mind out there. This following quote is part of a reply to a post from an excellent blog that has opened a lot of eyes. Let's face it, black women better start waking up and begin looking out for their best interests, particulary in self-esteem and expanding their dating/marriage options. The 'nothing but a brother' shit is not working out too good:

"Even among professional circles in the BC, I'm seeing so much disdain and ridicule of BW who are focused on marriage, as if they're desperate and needy and have been "co-opted" by the patriarchy... when they're actually the smart ones. But no, the BC has to be so "different" and affirm countercultural mores that DO NOT WORK and we can't see the folly of our ways."

There are some people who deserved to be called out. I know I have issues, but at least I'm not a Apple freak. I went trolling in defense of those who dare to point out the flaws of the newest iPhone POS and submitted the following, seeming killing the thread (as per usual) :

I love the “ipod sucks” articles just for the iLoon replies. I have no problem with agreeing to disagree but there’s a special kind of defensiveness that comes from the Apple nuts. Just enjoy being a lemming and stop jumping down the throats of people who who dare to demand a bit of quality.

Have you figured out why I don't allow comments yet?

Quantum of Solace - what the hell is that?

Never was a freak for the 007 series. The only one I ever saw more than once was A View to a Kill, and that was because I loved the title song by Duran Duran and wound up not changing the channel. Now I love that film for the dated corniness, the wonder that is Grace Jones and Roger Moore's fopish creakiness.

Just ONCE I would like to turn on HBO or Starz and the Casino Royale that comes on will be the one with David Niven and Peter Sellers, I was obsessed with that film as a kid (apparently so was Mike Myers). Call me when they remake that puppy...

From a now-defunct incel board:

"I just can't picture being in a relationship or having sex at all. It's been so long it's like my imagination is tired of trying. I guess I always have a glimmer of hope; otherwise I wouldn't be on this board ranting about it all the time. But there is definitely a feeling of destiny to it all. As I get older, I'm beginning to come to the conclusion that its just never going to happen"

Yay, a Black President - now what?

Congrats to all involved!! Election night was a beautiful moment, but time will tell whether change really will happen or if we just sold another bill of goods. I like the guy, I'll give him a chance, what choice do we have? After all, Dubya was the guy everybody wanted to have a beer with (as he slashed our throats and sent kids to die), I really don't think Barak (or "Barry" if it makes you feel better) can do any worse. I hope he doesn't try.

P.S. - I adore Michelle but hated that dress too.

This quote is everything you need to know about me:

"I guess some people are just naturally out-of-sync with most's just one of those things that escapes explanation."

Once upon a time...

...being a single woman who didn't weigh 500 pounds, had no kids and kept a decent-enough job to pay the bills was considered marrying material. Now "men" just try to get over on them. I'm officially giving up on the so-called dating game. If I have to be on call for sex in the hopes that someone would consider having me in their life full-time, never-fucking-mind. I realized that I'm too smart and too full of self-respect to ever find someone to love me. The world can go to hell for all I care. I've spent too long making a fool of myself trying to win the favor of the dregs of the mortal world. I could blame it on the fact that no one sees black women other than the Halle Berry clones as worthy of anything, I could blame it on my too-high standards, but I refuse to kiss anyone's ass to get along with them in the hopes that they'll like me. Then there are the pieces of garbage that sees me as a "challenge," again, not looking for love, but to try to acquire bragging rights for something that is pretty rare, especially when nobody considers black women for anything other than video girls or typical ABWs (gee, wonder why when we're pursued by such high-quality "men") . I just called out some fuck this very week, he finally tired of the game and doesn't even bother to call or come over to say hello anymore like he did in the beginning when he thought he was getting somewhere (we work in the same building, on the same floor). I wore him down and he revealed his true intentions. The only reason he called was because he didn't want me angry at him (he prides himself on everybody liking him and not much else), but put me right back on ignore afterwards, what is THAT about?!!!! I hope he catches HIV from one of his hoochies he denies he has. At 34, I need a little something more from a guy other than dick.

NEW YORK (CBS) ― In what marks the end of one of the most high-profile police-involved shooting trials in New York City, a judge has acquitted three NYPD detectives of all charges in the shooting death of 23-year-old Sean Bell on Friday. Bell was gunned down in a hail of 50 bullets outside a Queens strip club on what would have been his wedding day in November 2006.

Oh no... DUH!!! We knew nothing was going to happen to these guys. I knew long before it even went to the judge instead of a jury. I'm so sick of these "injustices" that only seem to happen to black people. Before you go call Sharpton then forget about the whole thing in a week, ask yourself: how come this doesn't happen any other ethnic group of people? Did this ever happen to a Jew? It has not, not because they bring up the Holocaust or call you an antisemite whenever criticized, it's because THEY PROTECT ONE ANOTHER AND THEY KNOW HOW TO THREATEN WITH THEIR MONEY! The so-called Black Community has money, we are major consumers, but until we re-learn the lessons from the Civil Rights movement, grow some balls and dignity and start screwing with Wall Street, we will continue to be seen as expendable sub-human criminals.

I wish I thought of this.

Things you have to believe to vote Republican today:

1. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush’s daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a “we can’t find Bin Laden” diversion.

2. Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

3. The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

4. A woman can’t be trusted with decisions about her own body, but
multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation, especially so if they are paying women less than men.

5. Jesus is GOD (and all that implies, like omnipotent, omnscient, and He Created Everything!
He loves *You*…and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary

6. The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in flowery speeches while slashing veterans’ benefits and combat pay.

7. If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won’t have sex.

8. A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

9. Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

10. HMOs, oil companies, and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

11. Global warming and tobacco’s link to cancer are junk science, but
creationism should be taught in schools.

12. A president lying about an extramarital affair is a impeachable offense.

A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is
solid defense policy.

13. Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

14. The public has a right to know about Hillary’s cattle trades, but George Bush’s driving record is none of our business.

15. Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you’re a
conservative radio host. Then it’s an illness, and you need our prayers for your recovery.

16. You support states’ rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have the right to adopt.

17. What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the ’80s is irrelevant.

Friends don’t let friends vote Republican.

Yahoo Adult Profiles update.


This response from Yahoo Customer Service is in reference to the “Adult Content” removal even though the photo posted was “clean”. It explains it fairly well:

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Member Directory.

We have checked your account and it shows that one of your Yahoo!
profiles was set to Adult Profile even though your photo was considered
‘clean’. If you received our email on 3/26/2008, it was because your
profile was marked as adult, regardless if your photo was adult in
nature or clean.

Before, if you have adult material that you’d like to use on your
Yahoo! Profile, you were asked to set up an Adult Profile. This will give you
the freedom in choosing the content you’d like to place there.

However, as of 2008/04/09, mature content is no longer permitted within
Yahoo! Profiles. As a result, all photos in profiles marked as “Adult”
will be removed. We suggest you to change the status of your adult
Yahoo! Profile to a public profile."

Revolting isn't it? Once again it's all about dumbing down and catering to the "children," even if you don't have any. I should delete all of my info email and all, but... I've had it so long and it's comfortable and to change my emails around now would take - oh forget it, I'll just uncheck the damn box...

God, I'm an ass.

On a unrelated note... when did Bronson Pinchot get hot?

On my net travels, I find some weird stuff. On the heels of my decent into madness (via the TV Guide channel), I discovered season 5 of the Surreal Life a.k.a the Omorosa and Janice Show. Getting lost in the mix was Mr. Pinchot, Balki from Perfect Strangers. Oh, how many wasted pre-teen Friday nights spent goofing on my Mom for watching the TGIF lineup. Turns out he, unlike most of the people from those shows of yesteryear, is still working. He's a bit touchy-feely too, but lately, he's looking a hell of a lot better since SF5. And I think he had his nose tweaked because I used to think he had some Indian in him with that schnozz. This is the LAST guy on earth I would even think about that way, but since he is certifiably insane, he is cute and therefore gets a mention here. Hey Bronny give me a ring, I won't mind, it's been a while - could you tell?

...and don't tell my mom.

(Mr. Art Critic huh?, does anybody know when this is coming to dvd?)

Is this "adult content?" Yahoo thinks so. By the way, Penn can dance!

This morning I received an email from Yahoo stating:

"We're making some changes that will affect one of your Yahoo!
profiles. After April 9, 2008, mature content will not be
permitted within Yahoo! Profiles.

In accordance with this new policy, users will no longer be able to
designate an "adult profile," and mature content will be removed.

The profile for the Yahoo! ID loolablue is marked "adult."
The picture associated with this profile will be removed and
deleted on April 9, 2008.

This is my profile picture, Soft Watch at the Moment of First Explosion by Salvador Dali.

It's not like I put up this one (which probably says more about me than I should share)... This, coupled with the super-fast dismissal of Penn Jillette from that piece of Disney crap Dancing with the Stars, confirms the continued fear of non-conformist thinking by middle America and the Bush-worshipping corporations in control of the media. I'm not saying that I'm some great innovator, but for Christ's sake, IT'S A PAINTING, THERE'S NOTHING REMOTELY SEXUAL ABOUT IT, YET IT'S CONSIDERED "ADULT???!!!" I may have to protest this on the basis of logic. I have some calls to make (as soon as I find the customer service number Yahoo likes to hide).

I've loved Penn and Teller since I saw them at the tender age of 13, I believe my first Broadway show. I marvel at how taste and perception changes with age, because both of them have a special place in my heart. Penn's radio show kept me company, and I was seriously bummed when it got the ax. That said, I also was keenly aware that he is definitely an acquired taste. Loud, honest, openly atheist and freakishly tall, I knew he would terrify middle America. This theory first struck me long before with the even shorter-lived NBC game show Identity. I'm surprised he made it as far as he did, because he spoke his mind, talked back to the judges, looked great and had a blast, totally unaffected and just himself - I voted via phone and email til I reached my limit, but deep down I knew it was for naught. The guy is just too intense... and the tie gag (though sexy and cute), probably didn't help. Oh well, fuck 'em Penn, I've loved you for twenty years, YOU WERE GREAT AND I DID (and still) CARE!!

Individuality, free thought and a quarter will get you a bag of cheese doodles.

UPDATE: for queries about your account, those Yahoo pussies will only talk to you via email!

Gmail Older Version default/Gmail Skins fix

You're just minding your own business, just merrily bopping along with your Gmail and cool customization of Gmail. Then one day you login, and Gmail is FUCKED! This crappy new look that you can't do anything with, AAAAAAAUGH!!! Then comes the realization that Gmail Skins will NOT be updated with NO NOTICE FROM ANYONE!! And you can't even choose the better Older version as a default! Half-assed from all points! What about my nice look? What about the ease of use? What about Scarecrow's brain?! What to do, what to do??

You do the following:
1. Get Firefox, natch.
2. Get Greasemonkey extension.
3. Install this script.

Viola! Not only will Gmail Skins work, you'll also be able to use all the other extensions, scripts and styles for Gmail from Firefox! Oh happy day!!!

You're welcome.

Happy New Year and all that rot...

...I know I've been lax with this place, but apparently I've built a bit of a life - yeah, yeah, I'm as astounded as you are. I thought I'd take a break to wax a little poetic about a great man that was taken from us way too soon...

...but instead this is for those of you (including friends and family) that laughed at me because I had to work on MLK Day...

........('(...´...´.... ¯~/'...')
..........''...\.......... _.·´

That felt good. Oh, by the way kiddies, those amazing protest photos with the picket signs and such from way back when, are longer relevant. Money talks, bullshit runs the marathon. Police brutality, racism, black female misogyny, BET... all of this madness can be stopped simply by PROTESTING WITH YOUR WALLET! The Montgomery Bus Boycott was all about people doing exactly that, and that must be done again on a larger scale. Let's take a cue from the Jews, they know how to threaten with their money (well, that and Israel). The reason why this nonsense continues is because "they" know that when something horrible goes down, we'll pitch a fit, call in Sharpton to get some photo-ops, then forget about it after a week or so. They know we're lazy and spoiled, they know we have no solidarity, our kids don't even try to hide their worthlessness (see the Jena Six boys at some award show). I know no one will see this, but damn, it makes me so sad to see these little girls out here with babies, the boys with their pants hanging past their asses, emulating PRISON culture, as if their aspiring to get there. Where are the parents? Why can't we get it together?

The last good episode of the Boondocks was the dream Huey had where MLK never actually died, he remained in a coma for many years to awaken in our time. He was not happy. Unlike the surprisingly happy ending in that episode, it was just a dream, still a dream, the message has definitely been lost and probably never to be found.

So there's my tribute to Martin Luther King, if he hadn't been shot, he probably would have committed suicide. Happy birthday.

I'm so sorry.
