Fucka loo?

Have you seen this video? What is this teaching the kids of today?

I hope that most realize this is for some kind of entertainment and music fun only.
It does have some decent rock music to it but the message itself to the young people who might watch it is wrong.

This is not the way to go about following your dreams.
I hope Parents will teach their kids better than the one in the video.

Watch the video and you make the call leave your comments about your thoughts.


My Favorite Holiday Music

I love Christmas holidays and I especially love the music that you hear a lot more of during the season.  (Yes, I really am a music-lover!)  While many songs are religion-based, there are also many that are non-denominational cheerful carols you can sing to bring uplifting spirits to everyone around you.  Who doesn’t get their winter blues chased away after listening to timeless classics like “Jingle Bells” or “Frosty the Snowman?” What about the humorous classics “I’m Getting Nuttin’ For Christmas?” and “All I Want For Christmas Are My Two Front Teeth”?

When you take a moment to really try and take away the stress of modern day-to-day living, take away the cynicism of non-conformists, and take away the negativity of those who simply can’t stand to see others in celebration around them, you can feel the true meaning of “holiday spirit”. Remember – that’s the lesson that the Grinch learned after he tried to steal Christmas away from everyone in Whoville?

How The Grinch Stole Christmas

There’s so much variety in holiday music today that a music lover like me can have a favorite in almost every genre. When it comes to children’s holiday music, I really love the music from A Charlie Brown Christmas(TM). Perhaps those of you who enjoyed the cartoons of the 70s can remember the scene where Schroeder plays the piano and everyone is dancing happily around him. That was just so fun to watch – even as I grew up!

When it comes to religious holiday music, I really love “What Child Is This?” because it’s so endearing and mellowing. I love it sung acapella and I love it even when it’s played instrumentally. I can even play it on the piano!

Rock musicians have also created some pretty good holiday music or recorded timeless classics which they’ve adapted to their styles. My personal favorite holiday music from the rock music category would have to be the Band Aid tune “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” which was recorded as part of a huge fundraising effort by the musicians involved. That song always gives me goosebumps, reminding me that there are less fortunate people out there that need help. We – the more fortunate ones – should never forget that because life could’ve been the other way around and we could be the ones needing help.

There’s also a genre of music that has become very popular with the coming of the Trans Siberian Orchestra (TSO for short). It’s called the rock opera. If you haven’t already heard them, you really should. So I’m posting a YouTube video of TSO performing my favorite TSO tune called “Christmas Eve Sarajevo”. The music totally rocks!

Thursday Thirteen #22 – Working at Home

13 Thoughts about Working At Home

1. As most of the Wrongblog regular readers know, I found a possible melanoma on my knee. To explain my self, I’m very white, very freckled, and when I was little spent most everyday of summer burnt… so I’m a prime candidate for Skin Cancer. I knew that I would have issues, but I truely expected them to happen in my 40’s or 50’s not when I’m 27. Anyway, so I work at home now and I have become obsessed. I look at every freckle, mole, or “blotch” and they used to seem normal to me, now I look at them and think I’m infested with skin cancers. And Googling images of skin cancers doesn’t help either….

2. I love that I can go to work in my Jammies and without doing my hair. The hair issue is very important because we’re in a heatwave and the humidity is very high.. I have curly hair and the only look I can manage without serious amounts of hair goop is the AFRO.

3. I get to listen to my favorite music all day and I don’t have to worry about anyone being offended. In the coffee shop, most of my customers probably thought I really enjoyed listening to the oldies (My girl, the twist, etc.) Here’s an example of what I like to listen to.’

4. In addition to listening to my favorite music, I get to dance and sing along. No one can see me so when “Word up” or “Beautiful People” comes on I can just stand up and stretch and well.. shake my ass. Or I sit here knowing no-one can hear me so I sing as loud as I want… I’m kind surprised that the dogs don’t start howling. LOL

5. I’m in the end of a pole barn. Granted it’s new and all and we remodeled it to be my office, but grasshoppers still get it. I had a new leaf growing on my orchid and one of those bastards ate the whole thing last night! And let’s not even mention what they’ve done to my pineapple plant! Oh the horrors… the agony… not. I’m just happy that I haven’t killed the plants yet… I don’t have a green thumb.

6. Freedom. I’m not worrying about what I need for tomorrow. If I need anything it will either wait or I go pick-it up. Most of the time though, it can wait.

7. I get to sleep in. I could really sleep in as late as I want but I’m happy waking up at 7 and not having to get dressed in “real” clothes until noon.

8. I really look forward to Friday nights. The local licquor store has a wine tasting on Friday nights where I meet up with a lot of people I know, followed by going out for fajitas and Margaritas. I can stay up all night cause I don’t have to get up early on Saturdays anymore.

9. I cook dinner again. I’ve always enjoyed cooking dinner but while I had the coffee shop I fed people all day and the last thing I wanted to do was go home and cook. Now I’m back home and we have homemade dinners again. I specialize in Enchiladas, Stir-fry, and Chicken Parm. I’m a pretty good cook if I do say so myself.

10. I get much more work done at home. I sell books online and I list more books when I don’t have people to BS with… I do miss BS’n everyday though.

11. I have a confession to make. I was listing books the other day and I came across a romance novel written by Fabio the cover said “see inside for your Fabio centerfold” I looked and then I was curious how good a writer Fabio was. The book was hot with lots of really steamy scenes and a really easy read. I still can’t believe I read it, romance novels are not my forte’, and what’s more, I can’t believe that I just admitted reading it.

12. Now that I have more time, all the taxes are done, and the bills are up to date and all the paperwork is in order of all our businesses.

13. Did I mention I’m still in my jammies?
