Hello there, how are you doing today?! Well I woke up around 2 a.m. and just couldn’t go back to sleep and neither could Kyle….so we are up! Might as well be productive right?!
Well for starters wanted to wish the talented and handsome actor Jonathan Rhys Myers a Happy Birthday! Hope he is able to take some time out to celebrate and enjoy his day. This has been a big year for him and I hope the momentum continues for him (and Mara and Toccoa!) These pictures (all internet sourced) kind of show my journey of my fandom with Jon. The role that really brought him back into my sights was his portrayal of Alexander Grayson a.k.a Dracula in the 2013 NBC series (sadly only 1 season!). He has a lot of new things in the mill and I’m looking forward to seeing them. Jon has “Adopted the Pace of Nature, her Secret it Patience” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) and is reaping his reward. Well done!
This morning I found out Abby Martin, host of the show Breaking the Set (I was so moved by her farewell speech on the final episode I did a transcript on one of my posts!)
was arrested at the Democratic National Convention!!! She was hurt inside and out during this ordeal. I don’t understand why this happened or what point was being made but it sickens me. I’m glad she is ok and my prayers and positive thoughts go to her right now. Stay strong Abby! Thank you for your courage and making this video so we can let people know what’s going on. We are seeing some “true colors” of this country and I’m not happy about it but it’s all part of the struggle we are in and we must stay the course.
On a much lighter note, Kyle saw this sponsored video on Facebook this morning and I HAD to share! ZOMG! Finally something to lighten things up about politics and tell the truth at the same time. I give you, CLIMATE INACTION FIGURES!
The Koch brothers as one body with two heads says a lot doesn’t it?!
No matter what side anyone is on in all of this…..we all, and I mean all, Koch brothers too now, must decide what our priorities are and it can’t be on the material level. Money can do a lot of things but it won’t buy you a soul. I don’t know why, but this thought came to me and it is odd but resonates, “Even if you think money will buy you a way to live forever, who do you want to be stuck here with?!” *context of this comment is what I’m reading in Dune Butlerian Jihad. In this book the Titans brains are preserved in jars so they have eternal life. All they have left is their brains in a jar that can be attached to robotic bodies that do not have any of the human senses they used to have.
