George Ezra’s Budapest: Just Feels Right

George Ezra is truly an amazing artist, this is a feel-good song that you listen to while knocking back a few tall premium beers on tap at your favorite local hotspot sports bar…watching the San Francisco Giants sweep the Oakland A’s as you eat some Asian sesame buffalo wings and garlic fries… the Giants win 16-2, by the way, so you know already how this gig ends…don’t drink and drive, my friends…you know how that story always ends…

Animal Cruelty, Courtesy of Walmart

Change.org has become one of my biggest hobbies right now. I have a passion for animals, I grew up on what some might call a farm, but it was just a five-acre lot with a huge fence around nearly an acre of it, filled with goats, a horse, chickens, ducks, geese, guinea hens, peacocks and, most interestingly, a black and yellow rooster named Apollo. We also had dogs and cats. I have been around animals a lot of my life, but what I’m about to share with you is so disturbing that even individuals not particularly fond of animals, will be appalled.

Ask yourself this: why is it that Walmart is able to sell their meats, pork in this case, so inexpensively? The supplier of their pork products was recently discovered, by an undercover representative of Mercy for Animals, having the pigs living in filthy conditions, flies hovering over the disgusting stalls of hundreds of pigs; some pigs had serious wounds to their heads because of the abuse inflicted on them, no veterinary care whatsoever; the most disturbing part of this story is the severe and horrific abuse the pigs are forced to endure 24/7. Its bad enough that the pigs are kept in a metal crate barely large enough to fit them in, let alone to allow them to move around or sleep comfortably. But that’s not where the abuse even begins…

Employees of Walmart’s pork supplier were videotaped ripping off piglets tails and testicles ~ not even using a sharp knife, but a dull knife AND their bare hands. They take the piglets and beat their heads on the ground, leaving them there many times alive, but in severe pain, blood having been splattered everywhere. One worker found a live piglet in a pile of what was supposed to be dead piglets, but one hadn’t died as a result of the beating and was bleeding to death, barely moving.

Even worse: employees take their fingers and gouge out the eyes of the pigs, for no reason at all other than “because they can”. The pigs are beat over the head if they don’t move fast enough in line; one employee was videotaped throwing a bowling ball at one pig’s head. In the background you hear employees laughing at the abuse being inflicted on these pigs.

I’m getting sick to my stomach even telling what I have, but it gets much worse. You won’t be able to watch the entire video, it is that horrifying and gut-wrenching. But it will certainly get you involved in the cause, and the cause is this: every other large grocery store chain nationwide, including Safeway, Kroger, Raley’s, Bel Air and many others have stopped allowing any abuse to pigs by pork suppliers by changing suppliers and monitoring the condition of their surroundings.

Walmart is the only large grocery store chain still condoning the mistreatment of pigs by the pork suppliers, not to mention their horrific and filthy

living quarters. Pigs are actually very intelligent animals, can you even fathom the idea of treating dogs the way these pigs are being treated? It would never happen. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) would be all over that. Where are they now? Who is protecting the pigs?

Please, make this cause your cause, and show your support by visiting the following websites:

Change.org (please sign the petition)
PETA
Mercy for Animals

Take it one step further to help this cause and boycott Walmart until they stop not only allowing, but also condoning, the cruel, inhumane and barbaric treatment of pigs at it’s pork supplier. We don’t have to sit back and just watch the awful abuse and torture of these pigs, we can take action, and the petition on Change.org is a good starting point.

Thank you in advance for your support!

I Take Back What I Said About MiLeY

I have to admit–I was more than a little intrigued by Miley CyrusMTV Video Music Awards performance last month, in which she shocked the world with her raunchy dancing, tongue sticking out of her mouth (the entire time, no less), moving her hips as if she were having sex, making obscene gestures using a popular foam hand with a pointing finger, and last but not least–the infamous twerking. miley.cyrus3Emphasis definitely should be on the twerking Miley did up against Robin Thicke, which I think was most shocking, since during the performance, coming from the audience was a multitude of loud screams and shrieks. My recent post, This Terribly Lost Soul Was Once My Daughter’s Idol, was my initial reaction to the VMA performance; however, I basically bashed her, without digging a little deeper–and that’s not like me. Plus, my opinion has since changed dramatically since then.

Upon watching this video of Miley in her first interview since the MTV VMAs performance, I realized that, as much as us Disney parents don’t want to see the idol of our little girls grow up, or worse yet–to become a sexual being; knowing full well (though sometimes we don’t want to admit it)there is absolutely nothing we can do to stop it, just as there is nothing we can do to stop our own children–particularly our daughters– from growing up. This interview, as well as the many miley.cyrusothers on YouTube, truly shows Miley’s good-natured and mature side, and she definitely handles the backlash of her shocking performance with grace and class. She makes some really good points. First of all, the artist she was 5 years ago in the midst of the Hannah Montana days, was the artist Disney wanted her to be. She was a teenager, and she clearly feels frustrated sometimes at still being treated like a teenager. She is 20 years old, in November she will be 21. She seemed as though she wanted to scream it out loud when she talked about how she is finally the artist she was meant to be, the artist she has always wanted to be. And her other very good point was a reminder of past performers doing the exact same thing on the VMAs: Britney Spears kissing Madonna, then Madonna kissing Christina Aguilera, and so on. That’s the perfect way for a breakout artist or, in Miley’s case, an artist who completely reinvents herself, to get out there and show the world who they are. It worked for Madonna, it worked for Britney, and guess what…it’s really working for Miley.

She is a grounded, mature, down-to-earth young lady and, now that I have seen her in more video clips, the new image and style she currently exhibits looks fantastic on her, and I believe she is doing an awesome job being the artist and performer she was meant to be. I have a great deal of respect for her now, and I hope that more Americans will, like me, give her a chance. You know what I had to do? I have to think of her as a completely new artist rather than thinking of her as “the girl my daughter used to watch on Disney”..she’s no longer that girl. She’s all grown up now, she’s a mature young woman with a good head on her shoulders, and she’s only going to get better, more famous, and more talented. Miley is an amazing artist and I don’t think the world has seen even a portion of what she will become.

Watch out, world! Miley Cyrus is just getting started…

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s PAReNTs JuST DoN’t UnDeRStAnD

Remember these guys? I absolutely love this song, and I am able to rap it word-for-word, beginning to end. It was a good message then, and it is now. I love how their rap songs had absolutely no cussing or inappropriate language of any kind.

Anyhow, this song is about how sometimes, PARENTS JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND! I vowed to not be one of those parents, and I absolutely am (not one of those parents). I am the most understanding parent in the world and my kids tell me everything. Unfortunately for Fresh Prince in this song, he could not tell his parents everything. Or anything, so…he ends up in some trouble at the end.. it’s a fantastic song, I love these guys!

THIS…Terribly Lost Soul Was Once My Daughter’s IDOL?

miley.cyrus2

Who is this poor girl obviously trying to get back at someone!

Please take a quick look at the featured image: Miley Cyrus’ performance at the MTV Video Music Awards was, hmmm, how shall I put this? Picture Hannah Montana trying to be a “big girl” doing a disgusting, embarrassing dance routine that would make Jenna Jameson uncomfortable.

Miley Cyrus recently performed at the Video Music Awards 2013 in Brooklyn, New York, and…well, what can I say to accurately describe my disgust, shame, and at the same time, pity? To be quite honest, I am speechless. WTF sums it up pretty well I suppose…

Miley Cyrus is very different than all of the other headliners right now in her age bracket, can you think of how she is different? She has a father who was once a gigantic super star, despite the fact that he is responsible for one of the all-time biggest song bombs ever to hit the U.S. market: Achy Breaky Heart, sporting a mullet. I, and I’m not the least bit ashamed to admit this, thought that was a fantastic song, it had a good beat.

I remember like it was yesterday when there was controversy over THIS photo…

Do you want to hear my brutally honest and unfiltered opinion of his 20 year old daughter’s performance at the VMAs? I am probably one of the World’s most open-minded, nonjudgmental, sexually open and forgiving people on the face of the earth. But, come on! Everyone has limits! It would be a completely different story if this raunchy young girl {with one of the most unattractive haircuts I’ve ever seen} had not been on the Disney Channel and a major, MAJOR part of the life of my precious angel and the lives of every young girl I can possibly think of today..I know there are a lot of highly enraged parents right now; I am the open-minded one, remember? In my opinion, she has a moral responsibility to portray herself in a way that the one-time World’s Most Famous Adolescent for her portrayal of Miley Stewart (alongside her Country Rock Star Dad Billy Ray Cyrus) as a typical teenage girl living a double life; by day she’s a nerdy, picked-on by the popular kids, insecure 14 year-old teenager who spends every day with her two best friends in the world, Lily (Emily Osment) and Oliver (Mitchell Musso) who doubles as Hannah Montana, a super-SUPER pop star who wants to be able to live the life of a normal girl so hides who she really is, the only non-family members who know being Lily and Oliver. This show was wildly popular and I will never forget the first time my daughter discovered Hannah Montana. ANNOYING! Cute yet nerdy teenage girl who acts spoiled being the idol of MY precious little girl? However, she was not only disgustingly inappropriate, she went too far this time. This is just over-the-top. I have decided it might be much more beneficial to my baby girl if I were to just sign her up for a girls-only synagogue; she’d be fine with that right? (Ok, she would be hysterical. You’re off the hook kiddo.

I will say this much…I would take the cute yet nerdy teenage girl ANY DAY over the girl who appeared in the performance on the VMAs August 25th in New York, who claimed to be Miley Cyrus but, could it possibly be? Unfortunately, yes, it Miley Cyrus. And she gyrates her hips, makes out with girls, kisses with a barbie doll, slaps girl’s booties, shows her tongue constantly, but most shocking, in my opinion was the lyrics: “…to my home girls here at the strip club, shaking it like we at a strip club…” during which Miley, who appeared to be making an attempt to speak in ebonics, was bent completely over in what appeared to be sheer white capri leggings with no panties under them, and she was shaking her ass better than some strippers I’ve seen, and I’ve been to MANY strip clubs. Or how about these lyrics? “…remember only God can judge us, forget the haters, cuz someday loves ya…. everyone in line in the bathroom, tryin to get a line in the bathroom…” I literally felt sick to my stomach throughout most of this song just because of the lyrics, but you know what the worst part was? She sounded like she was trying to teach the world a lesson: I’m gonna do what I want, I’m gonna act like a disgusting, cheap whore and you know what? You can just sit there and like it or shut up! My god what happened to Miley? She is just a shell of the former self that was the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus… miley.evil2

I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS DISGUSTING PIG USED TO BE A ROLE MODEL

Bottom line, this performance screams “Spoiled Brat Daughter of Washed-Up Country Singer” making a lame, obvious attempt to stand up and scream “I will say or do what I want, when I want, and in front of who I choose, and be disrespectful and immoral and disgusting, and guess what Dad? There is nothing you can do about it! After all, we have an image to uphold!

I’m very disappointed in Miley. She is better than this. One day she will look back at this and she will get a huge pit in her stomach representing the disgust she feels for herself and for making such an inappropriate decision..not only did she spit in the faces of all of the kids and parents who made her famous more than a half-decade ago, but she made her parents look like the world’s worst parents on the planet! Somehow I have a strong feeling her parents aren’t the least bit upset about this; in fact, I would be willing to bet my extraordinarily pricey 2-karat diamond anniversary band that her parents, sadly (more like sickly), were supportive of this performance. Come on Miley, you’re not a 3 year-old trying to prove to Mommy you are big enough to be out of a high chair, or a 10 y/o trying to prove you are old enough to cross the street without Mommy crossing with you, or..better yet…a spoiled brat 16 y/o throwing a fit because she did get a fancy Sweet Sixteen party. “But honey we already celebrated you being 15 years and 364 days old! We are exhausted from the other 363 parties we have thrown for you this year Miley. miley.cyrus5

Wa Wa Wa! STFU Miley Cyrus and take a good look in the mirror sweetheart because you are making a complete fool of yourself, and you’re scaring people away! Hello! Record sales! Her parents oughtta take that little out-of-control, overdramatized little shit over their knees–yes, I said knees, first her Mom should and then her Dad should! You know what I picture Miley Cyrus having as her normal, every day attitude? Thinking it’s okay to talk down to people, even her parents, who have been nothing but supportive of her career, and each day she tries to outdo the shock factor of the day before. I wish her luck, because she better consider a backup plan (can anyone say STRIP CLUB?) because America is disgusted by this new image, and I think that’s exactly how Miley wanted it.
