I’m watching another show of back patting & celebrity glorification.
The outgoing POTUS, honoring a group of individuals with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. It was meant to honor exceptional civilian contributions. You can look it up via link -history on Presidential Medal of Freedom.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Presidential_Medal_of_Freedom_recipients
..not for being clever singers or athletes who broke backboards.
They already have chance to get recognition belly rubs with shiny plated toys like the Oscar, Emmy and the Stanley Cup, to name a few.
There is, however, one thing I can agree with. With the POTUS having received the Nobel Peace Prize for doing not a god damned thing..how apropos that he be the one bestowing honors upon, frankly, slightly above average folk who merely honed their talents for the sake of putting money in their pocket; the purposeful betterment of society, the furthest thing from most of their minds.
Yes, I scoped out a couple of individuals who deserved at least one medal-their conduct/actions being solid and admirable.
No, it was not Mr Gates nor his wife Melinda. I don’t have much time to explain why I don’t consider a founding prince of the tech age worthy of an award. I’ll place a link instead.
I will close with a reminder that the Presidential Medal of Freedom specifically addresses society of peoples living better. The evidence linking Melinda and Bill to the practice of forced sterilization, assembly line abortions and gunpoint vaccinations is NOTHING to be honored for. It spreads horror amongst helpless and poor folk who are being treated more like diseases to be catalogued and eliminated …not as human beings. It’s a Far flipping stretch from the snuggly, warm boo shaw we’re expected to choke down while watching these ridiculous and hollow ceremonies.
The inner Piglet (Winnie of the Pooh related) in me exclaimed, this time in delight not dismay..
“Oh d-d-dear..what simply d-d-d-delightful and adorably d-d-darling Disney D-d-ditties”
The following sampling of mash-ups are from POGO.
In the song “I’m Afraid of Americans” there is a certain refrain. It’s an upbeat suggestion of “God being an American.” (You’ll find the classic hit at the bottom of this page, alongside the fun project video I made to it)
Some days (not all, please mind you), nothing could seem closer to the truth.
When times are the very worst..a kicked back, corn chip inhaling slacker of an American god is what I can imagine-shooting and running countless video game characters to their individual destruction with adolescent glee.
SOME days, folks. Lol. Just some.
I’m happily ignoring the end of our presidential pep assembly of fools.
I’d rather present a reminder of a
15th anniversary (Nov 5th 2001)
The Murder of Mr. Bill Cooper.
Thank you and Bless you..wherever you are
Autumn deserves her praise. With her breathtaking reds and stunning oranges. Exquisite honey goldens and even the ashy browns. Heaven only knows how many poets have been inspired by Autumn doing her thing with the leaves.
But..Autumn will never have the honor of making somebody smile over the thought of finding her leaves to munch on from the top of his or her cake, that’s for sure.
You, on the other hand, can have the honor-color combos galore.
All you’ll need are
candy melting wafers and a silicone leaf mold.

Damn You (Thank you), Mambo de Chocobo!
Damn you and your entire nest of irresistible hip dipping beats.
Damn you for making me pause way too many times today and consider replaying FF2 or FF7 in their entirety; when it’s pretty well known that it took me way too many years to triumph over both..each.
Damn you for bringing a smile to my face as my heart floods with video gaming memories through the years with my boys and children I had the honor of meeting.
And finally, you sassy bit o’ music, if there was a most “damnable” aspect,
it would be in art-such as yourself- helping to make my stay on Earth, as a ‘pretty nerd’, a more joyful one..a much brighter one.
The following videos are highly impressive symphonic treatments of video game music.
Now that I am long safe from the hazards of the dance floor (and it from I), it’s still a joy to enjoy this album-The Sign by Ace of Base 1993

What a treat to see all four still working, still beautiful.
