My Christmas Receiving List

Well, we had a nice Christmas. I had some left-over turkey that I froze from Thanksgiving. Thank GOD I found another good use for it! I made turkey gravy with it, with packaged gravy and the turkey I had already cut into pieces. I cooked it and spread it over mashed taters, and it was good!!! A rare treat as we really do not eat turkey that much. I must say this year has not been a total disappointment. Christmas was fine!! In between this Christmas and the last one, a few good things happened, though not much. The best thing was when Eva had her 9th child! OMG! They are now officially going to need a bigger house! Anyway, when my father came over, he brought some good things, the best being my new coat. I love it! Anna has one like it. It's very warm and toasty when you put it on. He also gave me a nightgown, but I exchanged it. The material in the nightie had no stretch at all, and I don't like that kind of material. It was big enough for sure, but without the stretch I like in the material, I feel so confined! I got stuck getting these 2-piece PJs made from fleece. Hey! They keep me warm and toasty! It's cold here and I haven't even felt it! Except in my feet and hands.

Anna gave me a wonderful food processor that I have been eyeballing for a while. It even has a setting for bread dough! I like that! I used to have another food processor a long time ago, and back then I heard you could knead bread dough in it. And I did a few times. But the last time I tried it, it burned out the machine. So, I am hoping this won't happen with this one! It's a big food processor, probably has lots of power! I cannot wait to begin using it!

Well, my ma gave me a Walmart gift card, which I will be using next week. Katrina gave me a Sears gift card, which I will also be using next week. And Eva gave me another gift card from a store I never heard of before. Thanks a lot Eva! LOL! I don't think we have that store here. Well anyway, it was a good holiday. And I am happy. Which reminds me, I need to give my father a call! So, hope all my readers had a merry holiday! Thank you all for your interest in my blog! :) Whether or not you commented.

Do You Believe in Santa Claus?

Do you believe in Santa Claus? I do. I always do. Not as in him being a real live person, but I do believe there is a Santa Claus. Although I did meet a Santa Claus in a Walgreens once! Nice guy. But as far as Santa being a real person, no I do not believe in that Santa. The Santa Claus that I believe in is a metaphor of himself. I believe in the Christmas spirit. I believe in the spirit of giving. I sent out a few Christmas cards this year, all to people I have known either in life, or on the internet. It's fun to send out cards. More fun to send them and not expect to get anything in return. Nothing except maybe that person's friendship. Though I did get a lot of responses, nothing like what I got last year! There were some people I got cards from that I never would have expected. At the same time, some of my friends who usually send me cards every year, I have yet to hear from. But I'm OK with that. That there is part of the spirit of Christmas. :) But I want to know, do you believe in Santa Claus as a person, or as in the Christmas spirit? I just finally got my Christmas spirit back this year, I thought it was gone forever! I haven't felt it in years. This year was the first year I've had it in too many years to count back! If someone asks you if you believe in Santa Claus, do you feel uncomfortable when you say yes? Or do you just say no to be accepted? Don't feel bad saying yes. I know a lot of older people who do believe in him.

Christmas I don't think is all just about giving and receiving gifts. I always thought it was about being with family and friends and feeling joy and happiness. My father came over today, I don't get to see him that much. That to me was a big occasion. The funny thing is, I used to despise my father! If any of you had ever read my story "Hutchess, A Picture Diary", you'd know the kind of person my father was and how much we couldn't stand each other, and why. And that was only 12 years ago! But since we moved here, he's changed considerably. He thinks less about self-importance and more about empathy. Believe me, he has CHANGED!!

Well, today we finally told him about our imminent moving to Montana. Last time we tried to tell him, he began to throw a fit. But this time he was more understanding. Though the chances of us seeing him again once we do move there are very slim. We may never see him or ma again. We will be many miles away from all of our family. Even the friends I've gotten to know. Katrina keeps urging us not to move, but we have to. Dad finally realizes that he cannot keep holding us back here. We have to move on.

Well, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. Not sure if I will be back before New Year's Day. I never know when I am going to blog, I just do it when I get an idea of what I want to say online.

Peace, Love and Good Will

How many people are actually thinking about this at this time of the year? I do but only when I am in a good mood. I have just finally developed the Christmas spirit. I thought I lost it years ago. Moving here though has changed my attitude on a lot of things. I hated people when I first moved here, now I have cooled down. Yesterday's sermon in church was about love. We are supposedly to keep a month-long refridgerator diary (so they called it), and this week's subject is love. So I thought instead of keeping it on the fridge, I'd talk about love here.

What do I love? I love my family and friends. I love lemurs and wiggly little puppies. I love walks through the woods or up the mountains. I love a nice view of the ocean. I love the sound of the rain on the roof, or in my case, on the window. I love INXS, especially Tim Farriss. Though I wish I could say I love their new album, but let's not get into that. I love it when I, and my co-workers, complete a new book and put it up on the UMG Productions site. I love going to the marina here and looking for crabs and sand eels on the beach. I love long drives, though it is coming back after dark that gets me in a bad mood. I love sweet desserts. I also love a nice, juicy steak. I love my kitchen, period! I love my Metazoica project. I am very proud of it! I love jotting down little changes in my Facebook status every now and then. Though I wish I didn't have to keep refreshing it every week! I love having fun with the trolls on YouTube, since I don't go into forums anymore. Even if I did, I'd probably get kicked out with the kind of fun I enjoy having with trolls. hehe! I love having good dreams at night, though mine are getting fewer and fewer. I love getting Christmas cards in the mail, though this year, I didn't get as many as I did last year. Last year, I got so many I could not find a place for all of them! I even got one from a friend who was living with relatives in Nairobi in Kenya. She sent me a real authentic Kenyan-style Christmas card! I put all last year's cards in a box though, but I still have them. This year, I got a card from another friend who is staying in Okinawa in Japan. She sent me a real, Japanese-style card, and it is COOL!!

One thing is wrong though, I haven't yet heard from Giddeon's mommy. Usually by now I would have. Giddeon was one of my Groucho's babies, and he went to live with a family in Utah, and usually I hear from them every year, with new pics of Giddeon. But I haven't this year. Of course I was supposed to e-mail her and I didn't. I've been so awfully busy! I had all kinds of problems go on this past year. I kept saying at the beginning of this year, "I've got to write these people, I've got to!" But things kept happening, and I just couldn't. By the time things cooled down a bit this year, I was thinking by then "Is it too late to write to them?" I still have this person's new e-mail address. I'd like to see Giddeon again. He's all I have left of Groucho. There was another family that got Groucho's other pup, but every time I bring up Ray-Ray to them (that was what they named the puppy), I never hear back from them, and I am starting to get a wee-bit worried! I wonder if they even still have Ray-Ray! Part of the policy contract they signed stated that if they didn't want him anymore, that they return him to me. But they kept making out for a while there that they did still have him. But I am not sure! If they did still have him, they would not mind talking about him whenever I ask. I just hope nothing bad has happened to him! I should have kept him, but I didn't need another male back then, and I had no idea Groucho would die on me so soon! I thought she'd at least have one more litter, and then I was going to retire her.

Well, this month has been very busy, in more ways than one. Which is why I haven't blogged much this month. I've been battling computer problems. This computer overheats too quickly now, I think I need to discuss replacing this computer's cooling system! I've been trying to work on a book, but everytime I do, I hear the computer's fan going too fast, and then I have to stop what I am working on, shut down the computer and let it cool. If I don't shut it down and the fan starts to go crazy, the computer has begun shutting it's self down. When it does that, I lose everything! I have to save my work quickly. Everytime I add something to this new book, I have to save it very quickly. Or risk losing it without warning. This book is an illustrated dictionary of mammals. I started to create something like it back in 1991, but I never finished it. I only got as far as the first few pages, and only a couple of entries. This time I am doing it different! I am doing it by computer (the first one was done by hand). But it gives me an opportunity to use all the pics of mammals I have collected over the years without doing a "Walker's Mammals of the World" type deal. I don't want to put that much detail in this book! But I want it to have enough, and all in alphabetical order, so anyone looking can find what they want to know. I'm working on it, but because I keep having to shut down this computer, it's a slow process!

The Never-Ending Debate

Well, I've been going in and out of Youtube and putting up videos of myself, and I get the nasty comments about how I look in my videos. Which I do expect! I mean, I put my videos up, I'm showing myself to the world, I can expect to get both good and bad comments. I'm not afraid of them, believe me! But what is so annoying is when an offending person leaves negative comments saying "You're fat" or "You're ugly", or some kind of comment like that, and I go to their channel, and they don't have a single video or picture of themselves anywhere on that channel! I personally think no one has a right to say anything like that to anyone unless they have the guts to show their own face on the internet. Otherwise, what's your point? You're just making yourself look like an idiot! I put my videos up on YouTube, I now have over 80 videos! So I had the guts to put my face out there. And I know I am ugly!! LOL! For me, it's commonplace. I don't care if someone says it. Disgusting now, I think that's a matter of opinion. You can't really and truthfully say I am disgusting unless you've actually met me.

One time on one of my videos I made a comment to someone that haters have got to hate, no matter what. Someone said, "Not unless everybody hates you." I told him that fortunately that hasn't happened. I admit that I do expect that too. Anyone who speaks their mind as loudly as I do should expect some persecution from haters, and I do. But at the same time, I have quite a lot of friends. I'm not "popular" and I really do not care to be! I mean, I've seen what happens when an innocent person gets in with the "popular crowd", they become arrogant and flaky, showy and stuck-up, they can suddenly go from being someone I like to someone I don't like. I don't want that to happen to me. Popular people expect too much from people they call "friends", and I like to live my life the way I always have, and have people who will always like me for who I am. Popular people never really have "friends", even though they may seem like they do. The people that they call "friends" are simply just people that they agree with all the time, and that they can throw away when that person makes the mistake of taking a different direction that the popular person doesn't like. See, I don't want that in my life, so I tend to block the "popular people" and ignore them. I've blocked a couple on Facebook that I have some mutual friends with, and I am not completely finished yet! In the end, the formerly innocent person either changes, or gets hurt by the "popular" people. And their change is never for the better. I've honestly never seen someone who started out like me; innocent, with few friends (but are very pure and true friends), that has got in with the "popular" people and remained the same as they were before. I can honestly say I have NEVER seen that happen! They always change! And they always change into something not good. First comes the change, and then comes the hurt. Don't say it can't happen to you, because I assure you it will!

I have friends who have hundreds of friends, and I'm fine with that. But they are not what I refer to as being "popular". That is, they are not the typical "popular" people I've known who are stuck-up, and think the world revolves around them. They are actually very down-to-Earth, gentle, kind, innocent people. They don't forget or reject the "little" people like me. hehe! By "little", I mean what the "popular" people consider "insignificant". There is nothing really special about me. I'm not attractive, I don't wear make-up, I'm not rich, I'm not friends with INXS, never claimed to be, although I do know the last time I met Tim, he recognized me. Doesn't mean I am friends with him though. Not unless he says so. LOL! I don't have hundreds of friends, I don't go many places outside the USA's west coast, I'm just a pure, innocent woman who just says what is on her mind. I do original videos, I don't take many pictures, I'm not that bold or gaudy like some other people are. I don't stand out much in a crowd unless you're looking for a fat, ugly old hag. I won't say I am stupid, as I know what I know. I believe what is stupid to one, may be wise to another. I only think trolls are stupid, as they never have anything intelligent to say.

There is one person on Facebook that in all logic I should block. The only problem is I like her dog. LOL! I don't like her, but I like her dog. LOL! Looks like a shih tzu. I have a few mutual friends with her, she seems to only like people who have hundreds of friends, and she's probably the most judgmental person I ever met in my life. I generally ignore her posts, except when I look at the pic of her dog, if she has it up. I have a special knack for that! LOL! I don't read some peoples' posts, but I do look at their profile pics. Usually only if they have pics of dogs on them, because there aren't many INXS fans who have dogs. Most of them have cats, and almost always tabbies. Not worth looking at really. I personally think tabbies are ugly. Tabbies are about as close to seeing a truly ugly domestic cat as I've ever seen. Except maybe those pixie bob cats and those savannah cats which I think look absolutely hiddeous! I like siamese, and ONLY siamese. Well anyway, when I see another INXS fan who has a dog, it's almost like a valuable buried treasure, so I don't block them unless they get to be too much. Even if I don't like them. I just do what I can, totally ignore their posts, and just look at their dog. hehe!

One of the reasons I don't like this person, she says everybody who she doesn't agree with is "being unreal", or is "insincere". UGH!! I think everyone on the planet is truly realistic and sincere, except her! She's one of those types that will aggressively tear down a common person in order to defend celebrities. I don't like that type of person at all! They are unrealistic! Celebrities are the last people on Earth who need protection from insults and others disliking them! They should be able to handle that stuff. People bad-mouth Timmy all the time, I don't jump in to his rescue and tell common people to shut up for saying that shit. Well, I used to! But after a chat session with Timmy, he was asked what he thought about people saying that INXS were losers for recruiting a new lead singer by way of a reality show, and Tim basically said he didn't care. So I said if he doesn't care what others say about him, why should I. But I must confess, it does hurt me a little to see anyone talking shit about Timmy. I usually just chalk it up to it's only their opinion and forget about it. What matters is that I am always a fan of his, and I think he is beautiful inside and out! Even if I don't like this new album. But that has nothing to do with INXS, unless they really are becoming a rap/RnB band!!!

Well, another season of Hell's Kitchen is over with, and Nona won! She was the last person I expected to win. I actually thought Sabrina was going to win! But she was eliminated weeks ago. I think chef Ramsay thought her attitude was too bad, she was immature and all. But that type usually wins. Not where Hell's Kitchen is concerned I guess. The two finalists were Russel and Nona, and Russel wanted so much to win. But Nona won! I'm actually glad she won and not Russel!! Russel is such a sore loser! While everyone else was cheering (even Sabrina) and congratulating Nona, Russel was downtrodden and sad and cursing because he didn't win. He didn't even have the good sportsmanship to congratulate Nona in her win! A very sad, sorry excuse for a human being!! Honestly though, I think Russel didn't stand much of a chance, I think Vinni sabotaged him. Vinni too was a sore loser, and he was still holding a grudge against Russel because he said that Russel put him under the bus when he got eliminated. Geez!! Take it like a man! Stop being a baby!!

American Southwest In For A Major Draught!!

And to think my pa and stepma wanted to move to Arizona!! They won't after they hear about this! Best to stay here where the rains are consistent. It may rain a lot, but at least we are never without water. But I heard that the American southwest is beginning a major 60-year draught. That is, a draught that is going to last 60 years! This country has not had that kind of a draught since the 12th century! I feel for those in those areas! Mostly I believe places like Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, possibly Nevada and southern California, may be struck. This is kinda sad really. But it is nature. Those places may experience a major water shortage, which is not good! That's why I usually stick to the northern states, where we get a lot of rainfall. Falling rain may be a bit depressing, but it's good. I would not move from here for nothing on Earth! Though I will eventually need to move away and go to Montana. Anna will be going back at the end of this month, and going to school. I don't know how soon or how late I will be joining her there. It may be in the spring, may be in the summer. But I do know I will be moving there. I just hope this draught does not hit Montana. Though I doubt it seriously!!

I remember about 20 some-odd years ago, we had a minor draught in this state, and there was the threat of water shortage. However, we managed, and the following winter we no longer had that threat anymore. We had so much rainfall that year during the winter months, that we had some serious threat of flooding in some areas. That's Washington state for you!! One month draught, the next month flooding! LOL! Speaking of which, I heard Chehalis is under a flood threat. I sure hope Katrina and her family are OK. I heard from her this morning, and she seems OK. They do live up on top of a hill in Chehalis, and they got through the floods of 2008 unscathed. So I am sure they will make it OK.

Well, this is my busiest month, but I finally got finished with my Christmas shopping! Thank GOD!!! I've been hinting to everyone the things that I want for Christmas this year. hehe! But if I don't get the things I want, it's OK. I don't care. As long as I get some recognition from friends and family, I'm fine! I haven't made my Christmas goodies yet though. I would like to get to work on that ASAP! But I said I am not going to make that much this year, just my brownies and peppermint meltaway cookies, which are a Christmas tradition in this family. Though I don't know how I am going to do the meltaways without a mixer!! The one that I've had now for years just finally died on me! :( I need a heavy-duty mixer and I said after Christmas I am going to get one! Like the mixers professional chefs use. I usually like to make up different kinds of cookies and decorate them and give them to friends, family and neighbors. That too has become a bit of a tradition for me, and I make a lot of new friends that way too. But this year I guess I won't make a lot. Just enough to give to friends and family.

Ya know the best Christmas I can remember was one during a year when we didn't even celebrate Christmas. My ma had become a Jehovah Witness, and she said "There will be no celebrating Christmas in this house!" I was appalled by that statement!! But that is how the Jehovah Witnesses are, they don't celebrate Christmas or birthdays, so as long as ma was in with them, I had to go along with it, but it was so different than how I was brought up! Well, Anna and I didn't like the idea of not celebrating Christmas, so what we did was we planned a little fund of our own. We saved some money and went out and bought our own Christmas presents for each other, and when Christmas morning came, we secretly met in Anna's room and gave our gifts to each other. Ma and pa never even knew we did that! Well, the next year, I told pa that we did that. But I didn't tell ma until years later when she got out of the Jehovah Witness faith. I just couldn't convert to that! Everything they believed in, I didn't believe in; and everything I believed in, they didn't belive in. That year we didn't have an official family Christmas, but I think that was the best Christmas I can remember! It was fun, even though it was just between myself and Anna. That was the year I got my little plush ringtail lemur from the WWF collection, which they don't have anymore!! I took that little plush lemur everywhere I went, even to the White House!! hehe! Years later, I had to sell that little plush lemur, and it made me angry too! Long story attached there.

Well, I don't know if I will be making any more blog posts between now and when Anna goes back to Bozeman. So I hope all my readers here has a wonderful and merry holiday season!

Nicole Kidman Loves Snakes!

That's news to me!! I heard it this morning on a reptile news channel that I've recently become friends with. Nicole Kidman loves snakes and wants to own some! That's a surprise because Nicole Kidman is the very last person I would have ever expected to want to own snakes! She looks too "girly" to me to even give snakes a second glance! Not saying that is a bad thing, but most "girly" girls are either afraid or disgusted by snakes. I've always been something of a tom-boy, I used to play with trucks instead of dolls. LOL! I used to go out and catch frogs and snakes instead of playing dress-up. That could explain why I don't take too much care about the way I look and have let my looks go. Now, I think I look like an ugly old hag! But still adorable in character. hehe! ;) But anyway, physical appearance aside, I am the kind of woman I would expect to own snakes. Not someone like Nicole Kidman! Nicole Kidman is a fine actress and she's quite attractive! But I think it's cool that she loves snakes!

This guy was saying on YouTube that it could be good for snake owners if she does get some. A law is still pending to ban snake ownership in all 50 states. While I agree pythons and other large constrictors should become illegal in places like Florida, up here, I should be allowed to keep whatever I want. And I like having snakes! They are fun! Bandit is such a character! I am also so grateful I don't have to get rid of them. I've decided not to join Anna in Montana yet. She's living with a roommate until her schooling starts. So I probably won't be moving until summer next year. Anyway, if Nicole Kidman does get some snakes as pets, that may discourage the senates from passing this law against owning snakes. It's funny how celebrities can get away with a lot of things that common people cannot! But they can also help set the pace as well. Once they are allowed to do something like owning snakes without persecution, eventually the rest of us will be allowed to as well. That's good! So I say if Nicole Kidman wants to own snakes, go for it sweet-cheeks!!

I don't know what I would do without my snakes, I love them so much. People look at me funny when I mention that I have snakes, which I do understand because a lot of people are afraid of them. But fear comes from misunderstanding. People also believe that all snakes are venomous, which that is not true. There are some venomous snakes, but I only dabble in colubrids. There are only 3 venomous colubrid species. Only one of which, the boomslang, is seriously deadly, and I don't have any of those. One species, the green vine snake, their venom is only dangerous to small lizards. I might get some ball pythons later on, I like them. But the big burmese pythons and stuff like that, I'll likely never get into. Leave those to the experts. I have little dogs to think about.

Feeling Rather Sad Tonight

I wanted to post this. Though I am not sure if this is true or not, but I've been hearing that one of my Facebook buddies has passed away. I was thinking "Shoot! I was just getting to know her!" If it is true, it will make the second person I've known of on the internet, who has passed away in my life. I remember the same thing happened on the Pluba forum, to a woman who called herself Shih-happens. I think her real name was Christine. She died back in 2005, and one of her neighbors came into the forum and announced that she had passed away. Apparently the neighbor had known that Shih-Happens was going into the Pluba forum, and had some buddies in there. I don't really like to call internet buddies "friends", until I actually meet them, and we become friends. This friend told the forum that Shih-Happens died of cardiac arrest, and someone on the forum did say she's been suffering with heart problems all her life, so that was quite feasible. But I have no idea if it is true that this buddy, named Kelly, has really passed away. But I left a message of condolence on her facebook page anyway. I even told her I named one of my Metazoic mammals after her, an antelope. I called it Azema steini, in her honor. Well! Actually I named that animal months ago. But I am just letting her know it now, if she's there or not. The animal is not pictured on the site yet, but it will be soon. So far, nothing has been said about what she died from, and another one of my buddies looked in the obituaries for the area she was visiting, and has seen nothing.

Latest Development!

Yes, it turns out it is true. Kelly Stein has passed away. My Facebook buddy who was looking for it before finally found it. I'm going to miss her. We were just becoming good buddies. She told me she used to live in Portland, at about the time St. Helens erupted. I told her how we used to live in Toutle. Well, anyway, here is her obituary:



STEIN WITT - Kelly November 28, 2010, of Grand Island, mother of Nicholas and Aaron Witt, Evan, Oliver and Page Stein; daughter of Carole Tripi and the late Edwin Stein, Jr.; sister of Lori Sansalone and Tracy Peabody; aunt of Savannah (Paul) Getty, Kaitlin and Jenna Sansalone; niece of Charles and Karen Lenz. Friends may call Friday 7-9 PM at the KAISER FUNERAL HOME, 1950 Whitehaven Rd., Grand Island. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday at 10 AM at St. Stephen's Church. Memorials may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of WNY.

Having A Grand Day!!

LOL! Remember in my last blog post, I told you all about deskset24. Well, I blocked him. I figured since he blocked me from his channel, turnabout is fair play. So he hasn't been able to comment on any of my videos. Well, Katrina pumped life into an old YouTube channel she created but forgot about, so she told me. She came into one of my videos and said this to deskset24:

@deskset24 god damn i cant get over what a fucking nerd piece of shit you are. fuck you! why don't you go pop some fucking beef up your fat ass and stop being so fucking nasty you fucking twat!

That was before I told her that he's been banned from my channel. But this was funny as heck!!! Even funnier is the fact that Katrina told me that deskset banned her from his channel too. LOL! And she was just getting started. So, now Katrina and deskset24 are going around to each other on her channel. She hasn't banned him yet. She should, since he banned her. Katrina also wrote me a message on that same video she made that last comment to deskset. She told me:

tg, dont let these twats run all over you. you need to learn to give some people a good 'fuck-off'!

The problem is, I don't like cussing. I don't cuss. Katrina and deskset24 can do it because they are young, but when you reach my age, cussing does not become a daily thing every time you open your mouth! You begin to realize in your 30s how very disgusting cussing is. That's why most women don't do it at this age. So, I could never tell someone to "fuck off". I say "damn", "ass" and "shit" once in a while, but that's about all the cussing I ever do. I don't say the really nasty words like Katrina and deskset24 do!! I did when I was in my 20s and teens, but not now. I don't know why it is really when you reach your 30s, it feels uncomfortable to cuss. I admit I do need to learn to make some people back off, like Katrina says. I've always been something of a pushover. A little too nice for my own good!! I don't know how Katrina does it! She has a knack for getting people to do exactly what she wants them to do! Like now, she is playing deskset24 like a fiddle!! LOL! I don't know if he knows it or not. But I'm watching those two go back and forth with trying to come up with the most monsterous and vicious lies about each other! LOL! I think they're playing games with each other now, really. So, I have even joined the fun.

This morning, I noticed that deskset24 (of all people on YouTube), called Katrina a hypocrite piece of shit. I laughed and said to him "Look who's talking hypocrite!" He said I have no friends, and my ma and pa hates me because I killed some little girl back in 1993. LOL! I didn't really, but that's the kind of stuff he's saying. I mentioned that he was the one who said on one of my videos that he raped and murdered his own children, and that's why his girlfriend left him and decided not to marry him. Katrina, when on her lunch break, signed on and confirmed "He sure did! I saw his confession!" She added that deskset24 also admitted that he likes to have sex with pigs, cows and chickens, and that is why he stands up for their rights. LOL! I don't know if he really does, there are people out there like that. But that's the kind of things being said. So, Katrina, and myself (maybe even deskset24) are just kicking back and having fun, making up stories about each other. Evil stories. LOL! Well! Deskset24 started it all!!

He even called Katrina a homophobe because Katrina said Ingrid Newkirk is a faggot. LOL! I've heard so many teens and 20 year olds say that phrase, I don't think they just use it to refer to gay people anymore. I don't write to deskset on Katrina's page. I just write to Katrina. I said to her:

Oh Katrina look! Look who has all of a sudden decided he "cares" about minorities!! LOL! Lying, hypocritical douchebag deskset24. You hate gays, deskset, don't deny it. You told me yourself you'd like to see them bombed! hehe!
Deskset24 says he'd like to bomb everybody, not just gay people. But I've seen across YouTube where deskset24 has complained about Mexicans coming into this country and taking over. Blah-blah-blah!! I noticed he wrote to Katrina on the video where Newkirk was talking down at fat rights. And this is what he said to her:
@SuperKatrinable Everything you just said proves my point that anti-animal rights people are also anti-human. Everything you said proves my point that PETA-haters disrespect all humans.

And you hate America. I encourage anyone to mail you a bomb. That is MY right to support that political position, to make that legal.
You LOVE big government coming in and terrorizing great folks like Newkirk to steal their money and freedom. Hypocrite piece of shit.

And this was Katrina's response, get ready! She's good!!

@deskset24 and you proved my point that dickhead warthogs like you who love to have sex with pigs, sheep and goats hate everything in your path.
you hate the world. if you send me a bomb, i will just send it right back to you. and make it blow up in your big, fat, stupid, ugly face. simple karmatic economics. and it is my right to tell you to go fuck yourself. but knowing you like i do, you'll more likely go back to fucking a sheep like you did last night.

LOL! That's the kind of game these two are playing with each other! It's been this kind of thing back and forth all day long! But I am not worried about Katrina. She's a very tough little bugger! Katrina gives full meaning to the adage about dynamite coming in small packages!! Well, look at the kind of people she hangs out with! Besides me. LOL! Her husband has an accomplished black belt in karate (I guess that's good), and he teaches self-defense to others, from children to adults, even the elderly. He's even tought their oldest child karate! I can hardly wait till tomorrow, see what those two say about each other then! LOL! I'm having fun just watching!!

Bombing In Portland!

I saw this news article in my e-mails today, and it talked about an attempted terrorist attack in Portland, OR. Apparently the bomb was a dud, but still, I was thinking "that is so close!!!" Too close to home! The attack on 9/11 in New York was a terrible and sad event, but it was a long way from here. It feels very different when the terrorist attacks are so close to home! This came awful close! I go to Portland quite often. Well! More often than I go to New York, that's for sure!! I'm not at all saying that the attacks in New York are of lesser significance to me, it just feels different when I hear about it happening in a town I live so close to, and visit more frequently. I could have been there when it happened!! I'm just so glad that this time, no one was hurt. Apparently it wasn't even a real bomb! But just the idea that such a thing could have happened is a horrible thing to think of!

Unlike the attack on New York, this one was plotted by a teenager! This teenager was born in Somali. I didn't know the Somalians had such a problem with Americans!! But maybe it's not the Somalians. Maybe it's just this kid! Kindof like what goes through the mind of kids who plot school shootings. But anyway, what the heck is wrong with Americans?? Why does every country hate Americans so much? Is it simple jealousy because we have (a little) more freedom than other countries and fewer harsh punishments? Is it just because there are more fat Americans? Is it because we are not afraid to fight for our rights? I'd like someone to give me an answer to that question. But so far, I have never heard anyone from another country who has ever been able to give me a good, straight answer to that. It's always some kind of conflicting answers. Like everyone has their own reasons why they hate Americans, whether or not it's a good reason. But they all seem to only agree on one thing, and that is that they all hate Americans. Seems everywhere I go, people from other countries are always bitching about some little flaw they see in Americans. They seem to forget that there are a lot of intelligent Americans too. And the stupid ones no more outweigh the intelligent ones than they do in any other country. Only in redneck areas they do!

So far, the smartest people I've ever known of are from Japan! I'd love to move there, but I do not speak the language. But the kids there go to school for 9 hours a day, every day including Saturdays. Not sure about Sundays. I think Sundays are off for everybody all over the World. That was GOD's day off. I think it's traditional everywhere to keep that day free. I once dated a Japanese man and he was probably one of the most intellectual and stimulating people I've ever met. We only dated for a few months though. But he was smart as a whip!! I haven't heard from him in several years, I hope he is doing OK. My ma told me that we almost moved to Okinawa once when I was a little kid, I wish we had!! I see movies and videos of that city and it sounds sooooo fascinating!!

Well anyway, I think the World needs to learn to lighten up on Americans. As far as I've seen, Americans are no worse than any other country out there. You want to talk statistically? Fine! The reason we have more freedom is because we fight for our rights, if we didn't fight for our rights, we would have no freedom whatsoever! And we would have harsher punishments. Instead of condemning Americans for that, why not try taking our example if you want your country to be as free as ours is. As for Americans being fat, well, I heard the UK is becoming a fat nation too, and Canada. It's kindof ridiculous to hate a whole nation just because we have a lot of fattened up people. You just never know, your country could be next on the list of fattest nations! You may even someday outweigh us!! So don't be so quick to spout hatred based on that reason alone. You know what is said about karma being a bitch!

At The Bake Sale

Well, today my church had a bake sale. I spent all week preparing for it too! I wanted to make up different kinds of goods. I wanted to do my specialty cupcakes, and cookies. I made up about 4 different kinds of cupcakes, orange dreamcicle, key-lime, marble, and vanilla. I also made my special fudge-topped brownies which is always a crowd-pleaser. Also, I made my peppermint meltaway cookies which is another big crowd-pleaser, my chocolate-chip/toffee bit cookies, and my own brand of sugar cookies. One woman came and bought a dozen of my cupcakes! I was excited! I sure do hope she enjoys them. Also, my sugar cookies went almost immediately. They were all gone within 20 minutes after we arrived there. And I got rave reviews for my fudge-topped brownies. People kept wanting to come back for more. It was 2 days worth of baking, but I loved it! It's what I love to do. I usually bake my own bread, and stuff. I used to even churn my own butter! That takes a lot of doing though. This was special though, this was for the church. The money that was made is going to the missionaries, and also to the local food bank, which is awesome! So I was glad to participate. The fact my stuff sold and got rave reviews speaks volumes to me! Well, I said it before, and I'll say it again, no one cooks like a fat woman!!! LOL! I baked the turkey for Thanksgiving yesterday. My ma wanted me to use one of her roasting bags, and I told her I don't need it! I can bake the turkey, and it'll still be moist without the roasting bag. Ma didn't believe me at first, but I assured her I know what I am doing. It had to pass "the John Test". hehe! John is my stepfather, and as food goes, he is a hard one to please! Actually "hard" is an understatement! He's nearly impossible to please!! He's very picky. He's even pickier than I am, and I thought I was bad!!! LOL! Ma said that it was because she was so used to me being such a picky eater that she is now able to tolerate John's taste without wringing his neck every now and then.

So, I made the turkey. I didn't even think about "would this please John?" I just did what I usually do with turkey. I also made homemade turkey gravy, and it came out awesome!!! When I got the turkey up to ma's apartment, John took one look at it and thought it looked dry. He was looking at the outer layer, the skin, which he usually throws out anyway. I told him that when he cuts into the bird, it won't be dry. I assured him he'd love it. He and ma got into a little spat because I didn't use a roasting bag. He thought ma just didn't give me one. I told him that she offered me a roasting bag, but I turned it down because I don't need it. Well, when we finally served the turkey, it was so juicy, the juices were just oozing out as we cut into the meat!! Nice, clear juices too! And yes, it definitely passed the John Test!! hehe! He gave it 110%!! He went back for seconds! He would have gone for more, but he only likes the drumsticks. I usually don't like using those roasting bags. They are good for some things, but not for turkey! I used one of those once, and it took a long time to get the turkey to turn golden brown like I like it! And when it finally did turn brown, it was dry on the inside. The secret to getting a good, moist turkey, and attaining that lustrious golden brown color, is to coat the turkey with canola oil and seasonings (I use seasoned salt), and then cooking it for 25 minutes per pound of turkey. This was a 22-pound turkey, and so it took 9 hours to roast. The oven can start out at 350 degrees for the first 20 minutes, but then turn the heat down to 300 degrees after that, and the turkey comes out awesome!! It melts in your mouth when it's done!! Then for dessert, I made my lemon meringue pie, which John also loves. I make it with shortbread crust, which really comes together very well with the tanginess of the lemon custard. Gives the crust kind of a subtle sweetness.

Well that was my week! I even am having a little fun on YouTube with another troll. hehe! He came into one of my videos and just went "EWWWWWW!" So, I visited his channel. You know what I really love? I love it when the ugliest possible person tells me how ugly I am, when they need to look in the mirror themselves!! I mean, I never claimed I was attractive! In fact I don't think I am at all! But for this kid to say himself that I am ugly, it's the pot calling the kettle black. He's ugly himself! I remember when I was a kid, the ugliest person in the whole school was a boy named Paul. In fact, even the teachers admitted he was ugly! He not only was ugly, he had a nasty disposition! I remember he called me ugly all the time, but I just laughed at him when he did! He said it to try and make me feel bad, but it never worked because I knew something he didn't know. I knew he himself was ugly too! He was hydrocephalic, and he showed it too. He had the bugged-out eyes, and the oversized, oddly-shaped head you often see in hydrocephalics. Not only that, but his hair looked like it was made of straw, and his teeth were all crooked, and he often spat when he talked. I felt sorry for him (no, I never said he was ugly to his face, even though he always said it to mine!) But he was a nasty kid! And he always got in trouble for something. Even though he was a nasty kid, there were times he also showed a tender heart as well. He could be nice too. But those moments for him were rare.

Well, this kid on YouTube said I was ugly, so I looked at his videos, and let me tell you, he is no Adonis himself! He looks more like a twiggy CopperCab!! hehe! So, I told him so, just so he knows! He said I was a big, fat "diskusking" old woman and he pukes everytime he looks at me. hehe! I laughed and told him that he is much uglier than I have ever been or will ever be! He said this morning "You wish!" hehe! Then he challenged me to say it to his face. LOL! I love it when they get that pissed off! I reminded him that this is YouTube!! I told him when he can say his shit to my face then he can challenge me. No one on the internet (especially when they live thousands of miles away in Europe) should be making challenges like that unless they can actually carry them out. I never do. They just make themselves look stupid when they do. I think though that this guy knows I'm just playing with him. I looked in my e-mails today, and I also noticed this same person has actually subscribed to me. Oh well! One more sub, even one like this person, never hurts anything.

13 Years In The Making

Wow! I can hardly believe Michael's been gone for 13 years. It doesn't even feel like that long ago. It's funny how when you get older, 13 years doesn't feel like it's been that long ago, but back in 1997, when I was 23 (?) years old (I think!) 13 years was like a lifetime away!! It really does not feel like it's been 13 years ago since Michael died. I still remember every second in full detail. Truly I do! And in 1997, I couldn't tell you what happened every minute of any said day 13-years before. The news of Michael's death was such a shock to me, he was the very last rockstar I would have ever expected to kill himself! To be honest, I would more have expected Michael Jackson to succumb to something like that before Michael Hutchence! It was just impossible!

Well, I did a video about Michael Hutchence today. I was hoping it would be something much better than my fat-ass head talking into a camera about experiences I probably already mentioned!! I tried to do a slideshow at the end with video clips, and the song "Afterglow". But every time I tried to publish that movie so I could upload it to YouTube, my computer kept crashing!! I was supposed to have that movie finished last night. I tried to publish the movie twice, and I was tired when I finished. I was supposed to have it completed before 9PM!!! But ma called us up to her place at the last minute (just as I was about to edit the movie), to watch Avatar with her. Well, my partner said I should watch that movie, he said I'd like it. So when ma offered to let us watch it with her, I graciously accepted, even though I knew I shouldn't because I wanted to get that movie up last night. Had I known the movie was 3 hours long, I would have said "Maybe some other time". But then maybe not, because I did kinda want to see that movie too.

It wasn't until about Midnight when I was finally done with editing the movie. Then I had to wait because my movie software is so crazy!! Then I tried twice to publish the movie, and both times my computer crashed! The first time that happened, I said if it happened again I was going to just forget about this movie tonight and do something different tomorrow. Sure enough, it happened again, so I just said "F*** it!!!" and kept the computer off and tried again this morning when I got up. Last night I thought maybe it would work better if I just took out the slide show. So, this morning I tried it, and it finally published!! Thank GOD!! Now, I have it up on YouTube. It's late, but at least it's there!!

Are My Critiques Too Harsh?

I got a comment this morning on YouTube on my latest critique, all about Ben Harper doing Never Tear Us Apart, and it was an interesting comment. I accepted it, even though the commenter is pretty much slamming at me. LOL! Like he said I was doing to INXS. hehe! Well, like I said before I can expect conflicting comments every time I put up a video. Personally, I thought this last video was the funniest one of them all! But this guy basically said that because I said that I am not a particular fan of the original version of Never Tear Us Apart, that I have no right to critique this song. I just told him thank you very much for your opinion and left it at that. Because it is just his opinion. Nothing more. Doesn't totally mean the world to me. I mean, I looked at his channel. He deletes comments that slam him personally, and blocks people who disagree with him. But I just want to know what you all think. This poster however, does otherwise seem intelligent. Yesterday I think he put into words what I was trying to think of saying all along.

My critiques are probably kindof harsh, maybe I even do slam INXS in the process. I guess it depends on your point of view. I believe in telling it like it is. I don't sugar-coat anything. If I really don't like something, the only way to fix things is to tell the person. Not that I think my videos will actually make much impact on INXS. I'm not even 100% sure they are actually watching. But just in case, I think I speak for many other fans in saying that this version of INXS music really sucks!!

Ya know it wasn't until after I had already created the video, and made up my mind I am going to post it up on YouTube that I saw a link where Timmy did an interview, and he called INXS "it's own tribute band". I didn't even know who Ben Harper was, so I wanted to do a little background research on him. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw his pic was he's not a bad-looking dude! He's actually kindof handsome! He just cannot sing Never Tear Us Apart. On his own, I am sure he is superb. But his interpretation of Never Tear Us Apart, well, I didn't like it! And I'm going to say so. If INXS doesn't like it, then bring back JD and go back to making more original songs! Maybe do one or two remakes of classics along the way, but not a whole album! If INXS fans don't like it, well don't watch it then! Doesn't bother me if you don't.

People should just learn to take my videos for what they are intended to be, for entertainment purposes only. If they have a better method of critiquing, then they should learn to make their own videos and do it their way. The thing is many people are afraid to put their faces out there. I'm the only one who isn't afraid. I'm also the only one who is not afraid of telling it the way I see it. And just because I am not a big fan of the original version of Never Tear Us Apart, does not mean that I cannot mention well-known facts about it. I mean, I am the only fan I know of who is not overly crazy about that song. But at the same time, I know that it has been regarded as INXS's masterpiece, and I do understand the meaning behind the song. I mean I hate panthers. But just because I do does not mean I am not going to be dishonest about how they live their lives. It just means that I am going to call this cliche about lions being the "king of beasts" nothing but a bunch of bullshit. Well, basically it is!

Why Get A Pet?

I don't understand some people. I have a subscriber on YouTube, who has a kitten that her ma says has to go! Made me upset seeing the goodbye video. Now, I know I am not fond of cats, and personally I think they are useless, but this girl obviously loves her kitten. So, she should be allowed to keep it. The thing that comes to my mind is why get a pet, any pet at all, if you're just going to throw it away later on? If you don't really like cats, then don't get one! I remember when I had a rat problem in Olympia, I contemplated for a while getting a cat, but I put it off as long as I could, because I really don't like cats in the house either. I didn't want to get one, and then keep it just to get rid of the rats, then turn around and try to find it another home once it's job was complete. I saw no point in that! And that is not how I am about animals at all. When I get a pet, it's for life. The only thing that would make me release any pet would be only for the good of the pet! Like back before we were going to move to Montana, I had contemplated sending my snakes to new homes. But then I decided against it. I'd rather find a way to pack the snakes so I can keep them even when I move out. May take a bit more doing! But I always find a way. But anyhow, the only reason I would even consider getting rid of my snakes was because I didn't think I would be able to move them to Montana. It gets too cold. But since I probably won't be heading out there until spring now anyways, I think the snakes will be safe in the move.

But anyway, why get a pet, if you're only going to get rid of it soon anyway? I don't blame this young lady, it's not her fault. I blame her ma. I told her I would move out! I really would. Find a roommate, or an inexpensive apartment, if you have a job, or something that will let you keep your pet, but I would tell my ma I would be out of there so quick! I love my pets! I could never get rid of any of them. I had to live with a ma like that when I was little. To her, pets were disposable! Until I was 10 years old, the longest we ever kept a pet was 4 months. By 10 years old, I was better able to fight my parents for my pets' rights. My ma was easy to overcome, my pa was more difficult. But most of the time I managed to keep my pets. I remember one time my father and I got into a fight over my getting a new puppy, and we fought so hard, I threatened to leave the house! He seemed all for it. Then when I did find a roommate who would let me have the pup I wanted, my father was all of a sudden saying "Noooo! Don't leave the house!"

In fact my ma is trying desperately to make me get rid of my snakes and mice because she doesn't like them. LOL! She lives in the apartment upstairs, she doesn't even have to look at them. And if she gives me enough warning that she is coming over, I can have the mice put in my bedroom. But no, I ain't never getting rid of my mice or snakes! I love my snakes. The mice are jerks, but they have special little personalities I've noticed. Though I try never to get attached to their young. Because they are here entirely so I can breed my own snake food. Sad a fact as that is, it has to happen. I don't ever enjoy it, but I know the babies eventually have to be killed. Malcom especially seems to be quite a character! He seems to recognize me when I walk into a room. Ma was so disappointed when she learned I was not going to get rid of my snakes and mice, LOL! It's like she was counting down the days or something. Sorry to have to disappoint her, but I won't get rid of them. I just won't get anymore until we are all moved to Montana. Now, I am not sure where in Montana we will be moving to, we have sights on both Bozeman and Billings. Anna said Bozeman is more pet-friendly than Billings. But Bozeman is also literally surrounded by mountains! I'd feel like I am living in a cauldron! But I'd take either town, I don't care. There's good in both towns. And there's plenty of jobs.

When I am looking for a place, the very first thing I ever ask is if they allow pets. If they say no, then I say thank you very much and good bye! I would rather be homeless myself than to live in a home that does not allow pets! I cannot live without my animals. That's one thing in this life I don't even want to try doing.

Right now, I am in another debate of dogs vs. cats again on a horse forum. LOL! One person posted a pic and said nothing is better with a good horse than a good dog by your side on a trail ride. I agreed. But a lot of people said "I'd rather have a cat!" I said "What's so special about cats? Cats are dumb, useless and stinky! And they sure won't protect you if an intruder comes to your home. Dogs are MUCH better!" There ain't nothing a cat can do that there isn't a breed of dog for. You want a pet that'll catch and kill rats? Try a jack russell terrier or a rat terrier (or really any small terrier). Terriers do the job much better and quicker than cats too, and they don't torture the mice and rats before killing them. They just move in for the kill! No chance of the rodent escaping. Who wants their furniture clawed to death by a cat? You can train a dog much easier than you can a cat. Sure, cats can climb trees and a dog cannot, but if I want a pet that can climb trees, I'd get a monkey! And monkeys are more graceful in the trees than a cat is! And I don't like no cats crawling with their dirty paws all over my kitchen counters. So no matter what a cat can do, there's always something else that can do the job better. They're even coming out with doggie litter boxes now.

Wait!! There is one thing a cat can do better than any other animal I know of!! If you want a house full of fleas, I've found no animal does it better and quicker than a cat can. :) Personally I hate fleas, so I think I'll pass.

Some Numerical Facts

The most popular search engine right now is Google. But did you ever wonder where Google got it's name? It is actually a number. One "googol" is a one followed by 100 zeros. And believe me, it's not the highest you can count. I learned this when I was in the 5th grade. My sis Anna came home from school one day and told me "Did you know there is such a number as a googol?" No, I did not know this, I had never even heard of it. These were the days WAY before the internet took over everyday life. There was no such thing as a Google search engine back then, so this was the first time I've ever even heard the word "google".

You all know what a ten looks like: 10.

This is a hundred: 100.

This is a thousand: 1000

This is a million: 1000000

This is a billion: 1000000000000

Ever wonder what a googol looks like? Like this:

That is a googol!! Think about it. While our alphabet has only 26 letters, numbers actually go on forever. You can never stop counting. Though I have seen some people argue that the centillion is the highest number. A centillion is a one followed by 303 zeros. But I think there really is no "highest number".

So what brings on this subject? Just one of my random rantings and ponderings of the wonders of the World. I'm not even that great in mathematics! As a matter of fact, I think I suck at math! Though I've been told different on an IQ test! I guess there is a fine line in not being good at something, and simply just not liking that subject, and I think when it comes to math, I'm sitting on that line. But more on the side of just not liking math. Every career that I want to get into unfortunately requires a lot of math skills! Including animation. At this moment I am not sure what I want to study.

Another thing that brought this subject on: This is my 500th post!! YAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!!

Congrats to The Farriss Family

So I'd like to take this time to extend a heartfelt congratulations to Jon and Kerry Farriss on the birth of their new baby boy. I knew this one was going to be a boy!! People should probably hire me to tell what someone's baby is going to be, because I always seem to have a knack for knowing that! hehehe!! That's a joke, BTW!!! I wonder when the baby will be announced on inxs.com? Does this baby have a name? If so, what is it? hehe! Well, I know the baby must have a name by now! But why hasn't it been announced yet? When their little girl was born, the baby's name was announced right away. I hope this little boy grows to look just as nice as his daddy. Some people are suggesting he name the baby Michael. I dunno. Though it is a nice name, Jon may want to name the baby after himself (Jon, Jr.) I know the name James is popular with the Farriss family, but Tim already has a boy by the name James. Though I don't know about their family. In my family we have a simple rule, we don't use the same name twice. My sisters have had to be careful when they had their kids not to pick a name that the other was using. Katrina gets so mad at Eva because Eva keeps having kids and taking all the good names! LOL! I know Eva is not finished having children, but I think Katrina is.

This past weekend I made my usual potato-leek soup. It's good soup! Takes forever to prepare though. The only thing I admit I hate about this soup is after a few hours I start burping up gas that tastes the way burned rubber tires smell!! UGH!!! I know, too much info.

There's Always One...

There's always one in a crowd that is going to pop in and bitch about everything. A few days ago, I posted a video of myself critiquing INXS's new version of Kick. I still don't like it! Nothing that anyone can say to change my mind about that. I don't like it. Some people have enjoyed my reviews while others haven't. I understand that. When I put myself up out there, I can expect to get mixed reviews, it happens. Well, this piece of work on YouTube comes from Australia. I think I know who she is, but she calls herself Hutchrocks1 on YouTube. She's simply on there to do nothing but pass BS on my videos. The problem with this one is that she seems to think everyone has to agree with her. Such a shame! At her age and she believes everyone has to think the same way she does. I don't know her, but already, I don't like her! She reminds me too much of the delusional mods. Or like she's one of those mega-INXS fans who thinks her shit doesn't stink. I had a little fun with her on my Kick video. This was what she posted:

"Timmyfan if inxs are your favourite band, you wouldnt be ditching them and this album. And also if you think that the band will be watching your review your very much mistaken."

I'm not quite sure where she got the idea that I did that particular video thinking that any of the men of INXS would be watching. I didn't mention that on that video. Really, I did it for entertainment purposes. Just one long-time INXS fan giving her own opinion on this new version of Kick. But I did not do the Kick-critique video thinking INXS would be watching. I can say I got that a lot on my Joan Rivers video too, at the same time I got at least one individual who said he would always defend Joan Rivers, and I told several people that I really don't think Joan Rivers gives a damn what I say about her. LOL! So I believe I am fully aware that the chances of any celebs seeing my videos are very slim. It wasn't until after I did the Kick critique that I got that message from someone who does have some associations with INXS asking me to make videos critiquing the other songs on the album. But, I decided anyway to have a little fun with this person, like I do with all other trolls. My response to her was:

@Hutchrocks1 "if inxs are your favourite band, you wouldnt be ditching them and this album."
That's simply your opinion isn't it hunny. :)
"And also if you think that the band will be watching your review your very much mistaken."
Then I've got nothing to worry about, haven't I? ;)

Yes, Hutchrocks1 is a troll! She is the very definition of what a troll is. I searched for other comments made by this person, and she does nothing but gripe and leave negative comments on other peoples' videos. Apparently she missed the video I did critiquing "Drum Opera", which I did like. So far, it's been the only track I heard on this new album that I like. But it's good! But let me say this, just because I love INXS does not mean I have to love all their songs! I don't work that way. I can love someone or something and not like some of the things they do. I don't like Minnie eating deer droppings! But I still love my Minnie. I'd just wash her mouth with soap if I see she's been eating deer droppings!! LOL!

Well, chances are pretty good she won't even see my responses. Hit-and-run type troll! hehe! But just in case, here they are. I sometimes wonder what it is with INXS fans these days. Do we all really have to agree with everything INXS does and says? Maybe I am a lousy INXS fan because I have my own mind, and believe you-me I'm going to use it! I didn't like this version of Kick, and I am going to say so. If you don't like me saying that I don't like it, that's your problem. Make your own video telling your viewers what you think. When you do, you can bow down and ass-kiss all you want to. But I am not. Sorry. That's not how this Timmy-fan works. ;)

Forget About Michael?

So let's see, I've been cruising through Facebook and one of my buddies mentioned a young woman who went to an INXS concert, where JD was singing. The woman held up a picture of Michael and a security guard swiped the picture out of her hand and ripped it to shreds. I read that harrowing story, and I thought "Oh how terrible!!!" I really felt bad for the poor girl!!!! I don't know who she is, but that doesn't mean I don't feel bad about what happened to her. I mean, I know I would be totally distraught if someone took a picture of my deceased grandparents and ripped it to shreds! Same concept. That girl is definitely owed an apology from INXS!!! Hearing a story like that, I almost lost all my respect for INXS. The one thing though that I keep thinking is it wasn't INXS's doing. It was the doing of that one security guard. I would have MADE him apologize to me, because that was totally uncalled for!!

It brings a kindof big question to my mind, has INXS turned against Michael? Have they turned their back on him? A lot of people are believing they have. That isn't fair. It really was Michael who made INXS what it was. Another buddy of mine said that all the MH comments are getting deleted from the INXS fan page on Facebook, and even some from the website. What gives? So if I went in there and mentioned Michael's name and how I felt about his singing, would my posts then be deleted too? I have been giving INXS some of my most honest opinions of their music. I like the one original track from their new album, it sounds good!! But I have to say the re-makes of their old stuff really SUCKS!! It sounds to me like INXS is turning into a rap/RnB band!! If they are then I am no longer a fan because I can't stand rap or RnB music!! However, Tim is still Tim and I still think he's very handsome!!! Is it possible for a person to be a fan of one band member and not the music? If it is, then I've become that with INXS today. I want INXS back, if they must go on with JD then please do so!! Don't bring in these obscure singers to recreate these damn songs, most of them are bad, I must say!!

Well, I have been asked by someone, who is pretty well high up with INXS, to continue doing reviews of each of the songs of their new album. He's going to show the videos to the band and show them that the long-time fans like myself are not in approval with this new music. I love INXS, I have nothing at all against them, but this new music SUCKS!!!!! I just wish they would find it in their hearts to move on. That is what they are supposed to be doing. That was what they said they would do with JD. Instead, INXS have taken a step backward. Not just a step, but they've gone to the edge of a cliff with no way out!! It's upsetting. Yet they allow a thing like what happened to this woman to happen at one of their concerts. INXS needs to seriously take a good look at what the fans are saying. I am a long-time fan of INXS, and I am not mad at them by any means. I'm more worried about what has become of them. They don't even seem to want to meet the fans anymore, and that is sad!! Especially after hearing how they used to love their fans, and my own meeting with Tim Farriss was an unforgettable event in my life! He was so kind and generous. I hate to think that old age has turned him into a grumpy old bag!!! Not that that is what I really believe.

And why is Michael no longer allowed to be mentioned? Is that such a terrible thing to mention Michael, or even bring his pic, to a concert? Why did INXS allow something like that to happen? Why are comments about Michael being taken off the INXS website and Facebook page? It's not fair! Especially when they are already looking back with this new album. I felt bad about that story I heard. I hope they do not still have that security guard, because if he tried something like that with me, I would be totally pissed, no telling what I would do then. Nothing really bad! But I think I would demand a serious apology!

Playing The Martyr

I've often been told that I act like the martyr in many situations, some people have even accused me of being spineless or cowardly. I have to laugh at those people though. You can say a lot of things about me! You can say I am arrogant, stupid, a jerk, an asshole, I'm nice, I'm opinionated, etc, etc, etc. But to say I am spineless I would say is a complete oximoron to who I really am. For one thing, I've never been shy about putting my real name out there. Some strangers even have my home address. I've even begun putting movies of myself out there, and pics. Would a spineless person do that? I personally don't think so. But then I guess it depends on what the other person calls "spineless". I remember someone, by the name of Rhonda (on the Pluba forum), once called me that because I agreed with someone who she didn't like, and she could not get me to agree with her on anything. Rhonda was angry at me from day 1 because of that too! LOL! Basically I just laugh at Rhonda though because she was one of those "hit-and-run" trolls, which is the most spineless variety of internet troll there is. But anyway, if I were someone else, looking at me from the outside in, I would definitely not call someone like me 'spineless'.

You know why I decided to put movies up of myself? Because Dustin Grey implied that I was hiding myself. It actually made me look at myself and I said, "OK, no more hiding. From now on, I am going to put videos up of myself, just because my face annoys him so much." So that was when I began putting up videos of myself, talking into my camera. hehe! I do find that when I am struck by a troll, I tend to put up more videos of myself. Until then, I usually cannot think of what to put up. I don't know why. I think because I give my mind such a good workout with trolls invading my videos, it kinda 'jump-starts' my creative processes. The worse the troll, the more creative I feel! hehehe!! I gave my mind a darn good workout this past weekend with Travis, by keeping my cool. It's great excersize for my mind! I get all giddy, and giggly when someone like him tries so desperately to put me down! That kinda re-energizes my creative juices, and I create more videos. Like yesterday I did a video about INXS's new album. I love INXS, but Nikka Costa singing Kick really SUCKED!!!! I hated it!! I went to inxs.com to warn everyone not to listen to that song. Very likely my posts will get deleted, but here it is again (plus I have my video), DON'T LISTEN TO THE NEW KICK ON INXS'S NEW ALBUM!!! IT'LL HURT YOUR EARS!!!!!! I hate it! I like the old version of Kick much better! This version is so slow, it sounds like Costa is singing in her sleep!! What is with music today?? There's no more rhythm, no more beat. Everyone nowadays seems to like it nothing but slow and sickly!! That's why I don't listen to modern music! No one can sing anymore. I don't think Costa is a good singer at all!!! I liked Shania Twain better than this wench!!

Anyway, why do I sometimes act like the victim in some cases? Well, it depends on the case. I know I put myself out there and there is a potential to get targeted by trolls and low-lifes. When I "play the martyr", it is most likely because I have felt threatened by someone. Like someone has backed me into a corner and I felt there was no other way out. Now, simple trolls like Travis and dustingrey, I did not feel threatened by. Because they're just trolls! What can they physically do to me? Nothing! They didn't even seem like the types that would hack into someone else's computer. Trolls like Rhonda, from Pluba, don't scare me at all!! Even when Rhonda resurfaced as "the watcher", more often I laughed at her than felt threatened by her! Because what could she do to me? Absolutely NOTHING!! She was too spineless. Spineless trolls (I call them "hit-and-run" trolls) are the least threatening of all. I wasn't going to go to her house, and she knew damn well she didn't have a prayer of ever being welcome in mine, and she was too cowardly even to argue so I did not feel threatened by her at all. The people I do feel threatened by are those who I know have hacked into other peoples' computers, called their homes, threatened their families, or have had friends who have hacked other peoples's e-mail accounts, and did all that stuff, those are the most threatening trolls, and yes they do exist!! I have heard too many stories of people running into internet enemies, and actually being shot or killed in some way, that I take every threat people throw at me seriously. Nowadays, no one can afford to take any threat lightly! So I don't. Usually when someone on the internet says they are going to shoot someone, chances are they won't do it. Unless that person actually knows the person they are threatening! But most of the time the person threatening me lives hundreds, or even thousands, of miles away from me, it is very unlikely they are going to do anything to me!!

I remember some years ago, a few people from the Pluba forum hacked into my old Hotmail account, and I noticed on my MSN, all of my friends had been eliminated, and it was not by me! 2 of the people I accused claimed they didn't do it. I don't believe they were the ones who actually hacked into my account, but I do believe (and they can never make me believe otherwise) that they knew the person who did it. One of them was brazen enough to ask me to add them to my MSN Messenger list. She knows who she is! Even though she denies it with all her might to her stupid friends, and not oddly enough, they actually believe her. The only reason I know it was someone from the Pluba forum is because the Hotmail account's alternate e-mail had been changed to an e-mail address that I used on the Pluba forum, and no where else. I didn't even have that e-mail when I set up the Hotmail account. No one could access that e-mail address unless they were the moderator, or was able to hack into my old account at Pluba. And I remember one time, this same person who was brazen enough to request an add to my MSN messenger, announced on the Pluba forum that she receives all private messeges sent to the moderator of that forum. If she could do that, what's to say she could not see any other info that was otherwise private on that forum? And she was the kind of person who would kiss and tell! She told all her fukwit friends everything she knew. I personally think she had personal connections with the mod, and she wasn't telling anyone that she did. But hey! It's OK! Karma will come to get those who do evil. Trust me! :) It may be sooner, or it may be later. You just never know. Bottom line is just be good to everyone you meet, and no harm will come to you.

Well, to summarize, that is why I am sometimes caught "playing the martyr". I usually only do so when I personally feel threatened. A person should not be allowed to get away with making threats to anyone whether it be on the internet or in person. I never do. I don't believe in making threats over the internet, nor over the phone, so I just don't do it. I never have. My ma always says talk is cheap. I may say I'd like to do this, or that. But that is hardly a threat! Though some people do see that phrase that way. But just because I say I'd like to do something, does not mean I am going to do it. But that's me! I don't trust strangers, so if someone threatens me over the internet, I think it'd be foolish not to take it somewhat seriously. That's how I feel.
