I have not been as happy as I was all day, and all night yesterday after the VP pic was announced. I used to work for the Obama Biden campaign and I lived in California for a few years while Kamala was AG. she is just amazing and so is Joe Biden. They’re both really good people and I know can heal this country and the backsliding of the last four years together as one country country, Red or Blue to figure this out when we’re not being torn apart.
I know 100 years ago I would have been a suffragette as my Aunt Hazel was. It’s important to remember that women have only been able to vote for 100 years! We should honor all those who fought for that right and get out the vote! assumption about guaranteed wins is a mistake we all should have learned in 2016.
We must be vigilant and without complacency. Only winning by large margins will oust the swamp without a court battle.
It’s very hard for me to blog about these days without it seeming irrelevant?
All of these random thoughts keep coming through because I am by alone with my thoughts… and come before any actual inspiration to write does. They are observations and random philosophical thoughts. As more and more dystopian novels turn non-fiction I wonder about the true new normal… because we aren’t even close. we have yet to feel the full force of a Great Depression nor have we dealt with the grief of loss happening to us daily with this pandemic.
I am depressed. These are depressing times. I’m have to start selling collectibles to buy dog food.
I think I might live blog these stupid ideas, as at times they are not stupid at all. I also tend to wax poetic when I’m (legally) stoned. I forget them.
Maybe one day I’ll look back and say oh that’s a good idea! Maybe you should write a book or screenplay!
But I want to try to get my worlds together. Blogging, podcast, my writing and oh hell I may as well post my Fan Fiction.
I need an assistant when it comes to staying online and dealing with how ugly social media is. Okay maybe I don’t but I may go crazy.
Pandemic reading and watching? Tell me that some of these themes aren’t happening.
Warm Bodies (Social Isolation)
V For Vendetta (there is a little bit of our reality throughout.)
I am legend film with alternate ending (The Vaccine push)
The hunger games (Economic and Racial inequality.
The giver (I hope will not be the new normal)
Right now it feels like the Divergent dystopian future is preferable to today’s reality.
So I’ll write here often. That’s the goal!
I hope everybody stays safe! my Covid test results were negative! I’ll clean this up in a bit- this is written from my phone.
If public figures answered hardball questions and gave honest and brutal truth in return, that would be my dream job. I am not talking about Barbara Walters, or Oprah’s ugly cry questions. I am talking about holding so called role models accountable for their behavior, and trying to understand how this way of thinking came to be- when did the disconnect happen and why?
I seriously have a list of people and questions for them. Curiosity is burning in me like a forest fire. Not all questions are brutal. I’m curious about so many things that nobody asks!
This is likely impossible given that at a certain level of success most journalists don’t have the guts or permission to ask relevant questions. Media helps shape society- why is it that the most influential figures can distort progress without being asked why?
I am hoping to figure out copyright issues in order to read a very controversial story- the plagiarized source material turned into outrageously popular books and films and merchandise that glorify intimate partner abuse— and the ‘fictional psychopath’ women see as the perfect man. Let’s just call him Chedward Grullen.
Compare and contrast – deduct and vivisect. Toxic and dangerous books mislead women and signal that certain behaviors are acceptable. They are not. Also the misrepresentation of an entire culture, is just baffling.
I will be adding the audio over the weekend. I’ll find a way. And I’m looking forward to it. I would suggest anyone who is PRO E.L. James not partake. Feel free to gush over an abusive relationship somewhere else.
