Brandi Pettijohn: Doc the Artist - Jessica Care Moore

She's back!!!

Doc the Artist - Jessica Care Moore from Brandi Pettijohn on Vimeo.


Jessica Care Moore was here over the summer performing her latest work "God is Not American." It was more than a political piece. I was expecting a lot of that but it was much more personal. I enjoyed it mostly because it executed well. More than just a person standing on a stage. I wish yall could have seen it. More later.

Paz,

Brandi

LYRICS
Look what Sarah Palin done started
A bunch of candidates with the intellect of starlets
On the surface they seem like they're harmless
But what if they win and end they up in congress
The result would be carnage I'm just being honest
How high's your education if you can't name your college
I guess your resume needed polish
I'm you you not me that's y'all witch
Look what at what they'lll do to win a office
Pour 100 million dollars down a faucet
Now that's flossin but you cut cost when
Them undocumented workers you was bossin
And whose crazier than Michelle Bachman
And the loonies in that tea party caucus
Plus her wild eye ranting causes
More shame for Minnesota than all the texting Farve did


Republican Woman stay away from me
Republican woman you are so crazy

Don't come hanging ya signs on my door
I don't wanna see ya debate no more
I got more important things to do
That waste my vote casting it on you

Now woman I said stay away
Republican woman listen what I say

Dear God I wonder could you save me
Cause these republican women are so crazy
Like that Governor out west in AZ
Saying we got headless bodies but still come my state please
And she must have never heard of debating
Really, how do you mess up on ya opening statement
plus ya hatin made ya state look racist
The fact that your even governor's amazing
It's like they candidates don't even know the basics
but if you watch em they use the same playlist
every time they see the press they skating
unless it fox news where they can do fund raising
if they positions not popular they change em
hoping Rush, Hannity and Beck can save em
They faker than wrestling it's something to see
they even drafted the chick from WWE

THE Gritty Committee: Duck Down 15th Anniversary Show in Atlanta (Video)

shout to the gritty for this video. I missed this show tough!!!

words meedymek

Few companies personify New York hip hop better than Duck Down Records, who for 15 years have delivered to our eardrums music that personifies the gritty, lyrical, underground boom-bap style that became defined as NY hip hop. From groups and artists many would call classic, i.e., Black Moon, Boot Camp Clik and Smif-N-Wessun to current fan favorite Sean Price, underground grinders like Skyzoo, an acclaimed collaborative effort between KRS One and Buckshot and highly anticipated upcoming releases from the likes of Pharoahe Monch, few can deny the collective input Duck Down has had, and continues to have, on the hip hop landscape over the years, particularly in New York City.

Do You Suffer From Costly “Soft Addictions”?


by Dayana Yochim, The Motley Fool,

Zoning out for hours watching reruns, checking your smartphone every 15 minutes, spending a morning surfing the Web for bargains -- these are hardly behaviors that defy social norms. And, really, what's the big whoop about checking your messages or biting your nails a wee bit too much?

Nothing. Until it's not nothing, that is.


When done in excess, harmless habits morph into something far more sinister and self-destructive -- what self-help expert Judith Wright calls "soft addictions."And make no mistake: Soft addictions can run roughshod on your emotional and financial well-being.


The signs of soft addictions
Overshopping, overeating, watching endless amounts of TV, and sporting an impenetrable umbilical cord to the Internet are common soft addictions, Wright says.


The psychological signs of sufferers can be subtle, but the emotional drain is very real: They "rob us of time, numb us from our feelings, mute our consciousness, and drain our energy," she says. (You can take this quiz on her website to see if some of your habits have become bona fide soft addictions.)


When soft addictions involve money, they inflict yet another side effect: financial drain. Left unchecked, things like boredom spending, convenience shopping, and day trading can quickly balloon out of control and become emotional and financial cement galoshes.


All it takes is a few too many clicks and suddenly:

Convenience shopping turns into a mountain of credit card debt.
Trading in and out of stocks eats away at your long-term wealth.
Those winning bids on auction sites eat away at the money you've amassed for a down payment for your dream home.


How habits become harmful
You can be the most self-aware person on the planet and still suffer from a spending soft addiction. That's because the things that make it easier to manage our money also numb our brains to what's really happening with our finances.


Consider credit cards: Like poker chips, they only represent money. Studies show that when we put purchases on plastic we spend more because we don't experience the discomfort of parting with actual cold, hard currency. (This also explains why I've never walked out of Target with just the things on my shopping list.)


Online shopping, stock trading, auction sites -- same thing. Done in moderation, all is well. But it doesn't take much for our reliance on these tools to turn into a harmful addiction.


Break bad habits before they become addictions
Because of that fine line between "harmless habit" and "soft addiction," it's easy to overlook or brush aside budding problem areas. Don't.


If worry about the financial fallout of your everyday actions even occasionally breaks through the subconscious into the realm of acknowledgement, it's worth taking a deeper look.


1. Bring consciousness to your cash flow
You do this by tracking your spending -- but with a twist. This tried-and-true exercise is always an eye-opener. But we're going to add an element of depth to the spending analysis:

For at least three days (two weeks is even better), record the factual details of every dime you spend.
Here's the twist: Within the next hour, write down how that transaction made you feel (e.g., "a brief buyer's high, but I felt restless again 30 minutes later").
Extra credit: Try to identify any triggers that drove you to whip out your wallet.


After several days, you'll be able to identify some mind-money connections you might never have detected if they had gone unchecked. Quite often the overwhelming feeling people experience is numbness -- not even remembering or getting much of any fulfillment from these habits.

McDonald’s Happy Meal resists decomposition for six months

Oh! You are what you eat. Months later it seems. smh

By Brett Michael Dykes

Vladimir Lenin, King Tut and the McDonald's Happy Meal: What do they all have in common? A shocking resistance to Mother Nature's cycle of decomposition and biodegradability, apparently.

That's the disturbing point brought home by the latest project of New York City-based artist and photographer Sally Davies, who bought a McDonald's Happy Meal back in April and left it out in her kitchen to see how well it would hold up over time.
The results? "The only change that I can see is that it has become hard as a rock," Davies told the U.K. Daily Mail.
She proceeded to photograph the Happy Meal each week and posted the pictures to Flickr to record the results of her experiment. Now, just over six months later, the Happy Meal has yet to even grow mold. She told the Daily Mail that "the food is plastic to the touch and has an acrylic sheen to it."

Davies -- whose art has been featured in numerous films and television shows and is collected by several celebrities -- told The Upshot that she initiated the project to prove a friend wrong. He believed that any burger would mold or rot within two or three days of being left on a counter. Thus began what's become known as "The Happy Meal Art Project." READ
