My New Group

Well, I got a new INXS group now. A group devoted almost entirely to Michael and Timmy, my 2 favorite men of INXS. Though I don't care if the other guys are discussed on the group. It is INXS afterall. I invited all my wonderful, beautiful friends to the group! But I wanted to put it here too that this group is open. The link is https://www.facebook.com/groups/771537872956639/. I do hope to see many more INXS fans there.

Well, one of the rules is not to post too much of pics of other guys from the group besides Michael and Timmy. But I will give a little bit of leeway with that rule. I don't want to be too strict. They are a band and there are more guys than just Michael and Timmy. I just want most of the focus to be on Michael and Timmy. But I won't kick anyone out for posting pics of the other guys too. I love all the men of INXS, let's be fair. I also wrote not too much cussing. LOL! Like I never do it myself! LOL! I do it all the time. It was my co-moderator's idea to throw that one in. But I will overlook that rule myself. As long as it doesn't turn into a name-calling war. Like I don't want to see the word "cunt". I never use that word myself. I also don't want racial slurs, that I am a little more strict on. But I have no worries about that really. None of my friends do that kind of thing! No INXS fans I know of in fact do that kind of thing. Not even some of the really bad ones.

Though I remember back when I used to get into the chatroom back in 1998. One person who got in there, and called himself "Streetcar" used racial slurs on me once. He thought I was African-American. Only because one time I quoted one of my favorite shows (the Martin Lawrence Show) and called him a "sukkah". LOL! I was being my usual silly self. So next thing I know he's calling me the "N" word over and over again. I told him that I am not really African-American, and he still continued to call me the "N" word. I was young and dumb back then, just learning about internet etiquette. I wasn't even aware of what a troll is. Well, Streetcar told everyone that I was "a black person who wishes she was white". I told him I am not white either. I told him I am Hispanic. Its not white nor black. Its in the middle. That shut him up. LOL! I'm not sure what someone like him would call a Hispanic person. I don't know the slurs for them. I don't want to know either, I don't need to know. The only reason I know the N-word is because first of all, I hear African-American people calling each other that all the time. Also I used to hear it a lot from my grandma. Grandma was from the early 20th century in the south. They ALWAYS called African-Americans by the N-word.

Well, the first 2 rules I'd let slide now and then. No problem. The only rule I am very strict on is the rule not to crosspost pics or videos or posts from people to other groups. With that rule, I am mostly referring to personal posts. YouTube videos and other public pics and videos are fair game. I don't care if the members share those. But anyone caught crossposting personal pics and videos shared on the group, I will immediately ban them from the group. Like this video I did last night. I took one of the podcasts I had recorded from when Timmy hosted the radio talk show "25 Years In 25 Days" back in 2009 and made a video out of it. I didn't post it to YouTube, just to this group. So it's a personal video. That cannot be shared unless that person has my permission to. I worked on it myself, I worked hard on it too. So I would prefer to have someone ask me before sharing the video. That one cannot be found anywhere else, not even on the radio station's website. I kinda want to keep that video exclusive to my group. I'm really proud of it. Timmy talks about the year 1997 in that podcast, and mentions Michael at the end. He even dedicates 2 songs to him.

Other than that, I'm all for free speech, and encourage all INXS fans to join up and have fun!

My sis was here with the dogs a week ago, and now I miss them. Especially the dogs! One of the reasons I wanted to have her come over was of course so I could see my babies again. But also, I wanted to show her my favorite movie "Never Tear Us Apart". At first, she didn't want to see it. My mom, GOD bless her soul, told my sis that it is a dumb movie and that I watch it too often. So my sis had a fixed idea in her head that the movie was going to be stupid and not worth watching. Well, let me tell you all something about my mom. I love her to death! But she is not the best judge of movies on this planet. I told my sis to remember the quality of movies ma likes, and then tell me she's right. My mom (again, GOD bless her) watches a barrage of the STUPIDEST movies I've ever seen in all my life!!! They're not movies one can really get into. But then that's me. She likes corny fictional tales, I love true stories. Also, I think my sis expected it to be all concerts and interviews put together to make one movie. I know she's seen enough movies about rock groups that have been like that. While there are some concert clips, I don't deny that, and some interviews depicted, they are done in a theatrical way. It's not like these reality shows or YouTube videos.

Well, in the end, my sis said the movie was interesting. I wanted her to understand INXS and why I love them. I even gave her a bit of my own commentary throughout the film. I think she enjoyed it. She enjoyed it far more than she thought she would. But that's a good thing! I always believe in giving something a chance to prove it's self. I remember I used to diss the Lion King. Well, I still don't care for that movie. But at least I watched it from beginning to end and then I made the decision I didn't like it. My sis said she didn't even want to show that movie to me, but I asked to see it. I wanted to say I officially saw it and didn't like it.
