Women's March

We've Got The Power
Madonna & Cher
Washington DC
Yesterday were the Women's Marches heard round the world! While I was unable to attend this Historic Event, I did follow it throughout the day thanks to the wonder of technology.

My favorite sign of the day? "Carrie Fisher didn't die for this shit!" I am sure she is beaming with pride somewhere.

No one should have their human rights taken away. Women's Rights are human rights whether  you be gay, straight, transgender, bi-sexual or fluid. What's happening in our country now is utter bullshit. Who is a corrupt ego maniac/bully/narcissist/male chauvinist/prick whose married to a sex worker place to make these decisions for any woman?

I decided to gather images from the sacred event from yesterday, the most notable one? Madonna & Cher at the Women's March on Washington DC - the others? I gathered from my friends who posted them on Facebook.

Let's Celebrate Life & The Personal Power We All Have!!!

The Morning After

WTF?!
Michelle Obama & Hillary Clinton
"There's got to be a morning after, If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine, Let's keep on looking for the light" 

- Maureen McGovern Theme from The Poseidon Adventure

Well it's the morning after and although we didn't board the SS Poseidon it certainly feels like we are on a sinking ship.

The majority of you, like myself, are still feeling like they are in an alternate universe, an episode of The Twilight Zone to be more specific. Well honestly we are.

However I am going about my usual Saturday routine of drinking my smoothie and heading to my spin class at Gold's Gym. Life does not stop because a bigly bully is now our commander and chief.

With this being said I am going to leave you with the image above on the first day of what is for sure going to be a turbulent voyage to say the least.

Michelle Obama & Hillary Clinton looking at each other says it all without any verbiage.

Make the morning after awesome for yourselves and your sanity.

Time for my Blueberry smoothie.

Michael's Musings

Is The Sky Falling Yet???
Michael Shinafelt
"The sun'll come out, Tomorrow, Bet your bottom dollar, That tomorrow
There'll be sun!" - Annie

Remember that catchy/obnoxious/over optimistic tune from the Broadway Musical Annie? Of course you fucking do, who could ever forget it?! It really is genius whether you like it or not for that reason alone.

Well Annie, it's a Hard Knock Life and I'm not so sure about what tomorrow will bring, but the reign has come girl!

It's time for me to get in formation and sound off!

Lindsay Lohan converts to Islam. The only person that cares about this "news" is Lindsay herself since people are now gossiping about her again. 

Did any of you spread your legs for the first drop out punk that came along? Inquiring minds want to know.

You never know when someone is going to lick a cat, the threat is real.

Nihilist Thought Of The Day: Always remember you are somebody's reason to smile, because you are a joke



American Horror Story: Inauguration begins tomorrow! It's said to be the scariest season yet!

Can't wait for Lady Gaga to perform at the Superbowl half time show

Betsy DeVos=WTF?! They are now synonymous (given what I have witnessed I'm sure I am speaking over her head with that word)

Did you hear? It's all the rage to emote in public

I'm not a Socialist, but I believe Health Care is a right, not a privilege

Someday's you want to rock it like a heathen, that day is now!

Tomorrow is Black Friday, until next time!

"Belle is a Better Role Model Than Cinderella"

Ring My "Belle"
Emma Watson
Never did I think the day would come when I would take seriously a case being made that Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast is a better role model than their Cinderella is.

But and however, when the person presenting the evidence is one Ms. Emma Watson I listen. Her opinions are articulate, intelligent and immaculately stated. 

Ms. Watson actually turned down the role of the glass slipper losing princess in Kenneth Branagh's film, who was ultimately portrayed by Lily Collins. She was then offered Beauty and the Beast. The character of Belle resonated with her so much more. 

Here is the reason she feels Belle trumps Cindy any given day (source E!Online):

Watson argues Belle is a much better "role model" than Cinderella. "She remains curious, compassionate and open-minded. And that's the kind of woman I would want to embody as a role model, given the choice," she explains. "There's this kind of outsider quality that Belle had, and the fact she had this really empowering defiance of what was expected of her. In a strange way, she challenges the status quo of the place she lives in, and I found that really inspiring. She manages to keep her integrity and have a completely independent point of view. She's not easily swayed by other people's perspective—not swayed by fear-mongering or scapegoating."

Well, you can't argue this now, can you? You can try, but...

Working "9 to 5"

Trio
l-r Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin & Dolly Parton

Well this should be fun! Jane Fonda & Dolly Parton are going to present Lily Tomlin the 53rd SAG Lifetime Achievement Award at the what else? The 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 29th

OK, I don't get the 53 and 23 thing, but I do comprehend why the award is being presented on the SAG Award Show. It really doesn't matter anyway when it brings us 9 to 5 reunion, right?!

"Yes" Fonda, Tomlin & Parton have remained close friends all these years since their classic work place comedy 9 to 5 was released December 19th 1980, the day after my Birthday, there's a piece of trivia I bet  you didn't know before.

I was taken to see it that weekend actually (I wasn't old enough to drive yet and of course you know my Mother wanted to see it too) What a fun movie it was and still is.

This will make the SAG Awards a must see for me this year, well at least this part of the show, and I am sure this news has put a smile on all your collective faces, thus I have done my job.

Later and have a Groovy Tuesday

Shopping From A - Z

Poser
Jennifer Lopez
Today we are celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. and that means most of you out there are rejoicing as it is another three day weekend. Cheers to that!

So I thought why not celebrate it with the time honored three day weekend tradition of, what else? Shopping...!!!

Witness one hot Mama, Jennifer Lopez posing for photos while out shopping in Los Angeles. It appears that she ditched the swag to play mannequin for the paparazzi. She gives good face, you must admit.

You just know she can shop 'till she drops too! 

Since shopping has never been my thing I plan on doing some cleaning & organizing today.

What are your plans?

In memory of Martin Luther King Jr. and in celebration of having an extra day to yourselves, have a good one!
