There are no calories in food porn. Unless these photos compel you to head straight for your kitchen. 🙂

Learn To Walk Away

There are many different types of pain. Really, the things that can cause pain to the human body and mind are endless.

But be warned: Don’t give your heart away. My heart is my own and belongs to no one but me. Because there’s nothing like the pain of a broken heart. Believing it’s your fault. That there’s something wrong with you. Believing you aren’t good enough. Not worthy of love.

I see this beautiful woman singing, with so much pain on her face and in her voice. I think almost everyone knows that kind of pain. I hate seeing people in pain, but this is a beautiful song and video.

However, begging a man to stay in your bed only hurts you, and it gives the man an awful lot of power over you. I admit, I’ve done it. I begged a man not to leave me. Thing is, he was never really with me, so of course my efforts failed, making me feel a lot worse than if I had just walked away.

Most pain has a purpose. Ignore it at your own peril. And learn how to walk away from anything or anyone that causes you pain.

Dear White People

Imagine calling for help for your 7-year-old son and ending up in the back of a squad car. That’s what happened to a Fort Worth, Texas, mom when she called the police to seek justice for her son, who had allegedly been choked by an older white man after he littered, The Root reported…

This video is shocking. As a white person, I can’t imagine being treated like this by the police. As the mother of a white son, I can’t imagine a neighbor or stranger trying to choke my son because he littered. I think white people have a lot to learn about how people of color are treated in our society.

Holding My Breath

I want to hold my breath
Maybe that will stop death
Cannot control this distress
Such sadness must be expressed…

“Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit — so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.” Carrie Fisher

Thinking of you, Carrie Fisher

Little was off-limits in the show. She discussed the scandal that engulfed her superstar parents, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher (he ran off with Elizabeth Taylor); her brief marriage to singer Paul Simon; the time the father of her daughter left her for a man; and the day she woke up next to the dead body of a platonic friend who had overdosed in her bed.

“I’m a product of Hollywood inbreeding. When two celebrities mate, something like me is the result,” she said in the show. At another point, she cracked: “I don’t have a problem with drugs so much as I have a problem with sobriety.”

“She was funnier&smarter than anyone had the right to be,” Whoopi Goldberg wrote on Twitter Tuesday. “Sail On Silver Girl. Condolences Debbie & Billie.”

“Hail Hail! A genius has vacated this realm-RIP Carrie Fisher,” Roseanne Barr posted on the site.

Missing the 1980s?

Whenever I watch a music video where there’s a crowd, I’m always scanning the faces, looking for diversity. Seems like there’s quite a distinction between black people’s music and white people’s music. Do ya’ll think it has something to do with the way we dance?

I was listening to some 80s music on YouTube, saw this video, and thought: this is a perfect example of how white people dance. Like they ain’t got no rhythm. 🙂

I admit, I don’t like a lot of rap music. Is that because I’m white? I dunno. But I do know that I like me some awesome guitar riffs, like this:

My point? I like finding things that we all have in common, like music. But it seems like even with music, there are divisions. I was listening to a Night Ranger song and saw this comment:

Richard Breedlove (3 months ago)
Ahh…The good old days: I was 15, I wore a cool black Member’s Only Jacket with stone wash jeans and an Izod shirt, I sported a mullet parted in the middle, carried my Harley Davidson leather wallet on a chain in my back pocket, Ronald Reagan was President and didn’t take s##t from nobody, Miami Vice ruled the airwaves, David Lee Roth and Van Halen were the bomb, and Night Ranger’s Sister Christian was #1 on the charts! Damn I miss those days! Damn….(sobs)

Funny, I don’t miss those days at all. Do you? To me, Reagan will always be the president who refused to deal with the AIDS epidemic. He’ll always be the president who introduced trickle-down economics, a theory that doesn’t even make sense. Didn’t take shit from anyone? I don’t agree with that, but even if it was true, is that the measurement of a great president? Oh no, now I’m thinking about Trump… Dudes, it’s gonna be a long 4 years.
