Pompeii & Currie Graham

There's two good reasons why you should go see Pompeii tomorrow. One is because it's a cool, romantic, historical spectacle, and more importantly, it has one of the best actors in the business in it, Currie Graham - who plays Bellator. He's recently been in movies like Hitchcock and Total Recall as well as appearances in Stargate, NYPD Blue and numerous others. He's an actor gifted to play a villain with the same zeal and expertise as he would a hero, with a power on par with Philip Seymour Hoffman or Kevin Spacey, who he reminds me of.  Thumbnails from the movie: Pompeii

Pussy Riot Vs. Putin-On-The-Shits & His Pal, SNOWED-en

Like I said before, Edward Snowden was, is, will always be a traitor. He's chosen to live in a country run by a secret police oligarch, Russia, which gave him "asylum."  Kind of ironic since he ran, like a coward, to escape a regime, as he says, who monitors everything. I'd say there is a difference between monitoring and beating the crap out of unarmed young women who sing protest songs against a shirtless tyrant whose hatred for Jews, LGBT and anyone who disagrees with him is severely and very publicly punished; and the country he ran from. A big difference.

Dinosaurs Smarter Than Humans? Maybe.

What if some dinosaurs evolved to the point of reaching the stars? 

What if, 65 million years ago, just before the asteroid hit the Yucatan and spread a layer of iridium across the world, the impact of which vaporized a goodly chunk of the planet, thrown particulate of which into the atmosphere, causing climate change and the death of most of the planet's flora and fauna, these intelligent beings escaped to another world or worlds? 

What if these beings, resembling a cross between a veliciraptor and a bird, came back and tried to help humanity? 

What if, also, that humanity was a hybrid race created by stranded aliens who wanted to mine the planet for gold and ended up in a conflict with the "Returned" species? Wouldn't that be thought provoking? 

Some birds are pretty smart. Who knows, maybe some of them a lot smarter than humans? Hell, I know some chickens who are a lot smarter than some humans occupying positions of power. Anyways, just some bird food for thought. 

Quack, muthafeathers.

Why Progressives Need to STFU About 2016

I'm gonna say this just once, not that anybody listens to anything I say and takes it seriously anyway...if you want to change the status quo today, stop talking about 2016. It's 2 goddamn years away.

If you want to change the status quo, to maybe make a dent in the vast inequality that exists in this country, worry about TODAY. Take a stand in November 2014. That's THIS YEAR.

2016 doesn't exist. 

Procrastination is great if you want to keep shit the way it is. If you want to live in a better world, do something TODAY.

You could maybe run for office or help someone you believe in run for office. Help your community. Depend on no one but you doing something to change your world, even if it's to take a stand against a bully in your neighborhood or school or whatever.

Just some advice from an old, dying progressive feminist.
