I’d like everyone to read my new article!
Sometimes, I admit, I write about divisive and controversial subjects, and I never know if people are going to accuse me of theorizing about reality, or theorizing about speculative stuff, or theorizing about real things that are going on in the world that are known as conspiracies.
But not this time! Nope! This time my new article is all on the up and up!
It’s written for parents and youngsters – ninth-graders are welcome! No sensitive language here! It’s all about schooling our little babies and making sure they’re safe, and schoolteachers and people people trust. There may be a mention of some wayward children’s heroes who’ve already been quashed appropriately by big brother and the lefty goonies, like Dr. Seuss’s Benjamin B. Bicklebaum … but we’ll steer far clear of any underpants-themed children’s novels, which I confess I allowed my child to read.
There won’t be any gunslinging, no special treatment of white privileged “snow whites” by racist dwarves, no bigot Tom and Jerry types to tarnish our good souls, or the souls of our children.
So, go grab your little ones and gather ’round for today’s expression of DEEP love and unity. It’s provided by the progressive-thinking Loudon County (Virginia) school board, who are entrusted with the upbringing … oh, you know.
They take care of people’s kids. They’re teachers, educators, hugely respectable and honorable people. Them.
Now let’s learn.
Thanks for sticking around this far. You won’t be disappointed. The learning will be eye-opening!
As reported by Redstate and The Blaze, educators in Virginia (slogan – “is for lovers”) have hand-selected books for your children which will enlighten the kiddies to the wonderful world of sex. The new curriculum is devoid of dangerous predatory Mexican cartoon bandits and green eggs … AND ham. Instead, the little ones have been enjoying cute NEW stories about sex and violence, like this, as described by The Blaze, reporting on this week’s board meeting and input that came from local parents: “… The first mom reads from a book describing a domestic violence scenario where the narrator talks about a female ‘coming out of some car in these tight-a** little shorts … telling me she’s going to leave me.'”

I wrote today on Quora about YouTube, and wanted to share my article. It’s all about YouTube and how they’ve moved from ad-based to subscription … and it’s not a pretty picture for the average user!
Blame YouTube music videos!
The original question was … Why is Google’s YouTube increasing a number of ads shown per each video and what is your opinion?
Because after many years building the company based on giving everything away for free, supported by advertising (which worked well, creating a trillion dollar company) … Google is finally creating a subscription model.
Here’s The Background
YouTube is a video website.
It’s in the name – You-”Tube”
But there’s music on there. In fact, you’ll find what you’re looking for on YouTube when you can’t find it on Spotify or anywhere else. YouTube didn’t do this, the users did – they contributed James Taylor’s album discography without asking anyone’s permission, using still images of the album cover. At first the users were told, NO you can’t upload that! But a few years ago, YouTube started talking with artists and managers, Continue reading “The Evolution of YouTube; Dipping Toes in the Subscription Model”
A mesmerizing cover of 6 Underground (Sneaker Pimps). This is first rate, and I’m happy to be able to show people what these musicians can do! If you’re in the RI/CT area, look this band up!

The Weak Leadership in America
And its Consequences Around the World
An Australian political commentator thinks there needs to be a new President of the free world “soon.” Upon reviewing recent footage of Joe Biden, the make-believe President of the US, gaffing, groping and gasping, forgetting, fumbling and forsaking reality … broadcaster Alan Jones summed up his analysis by saying simply “God help me!” Continue reading “America Hits Historic Lows for Respect From Other Nations, Biden Stumbles Incoherently and Forgets Mid Sentence”
A group of local musicians have made the best of the extended hiatus from playing out; some of the area’s finest put together a new act, the five-piece “20th Century Kids,” bringing a wide variety of energetic and very worthwhile covers to the Phoenix in Pawcatuck, CT today.
The band, fronted by local favorite Rickie Louise Miller, who also sings with Sugar, staged a very successful debut this afternoon at the popular club.
I’ll give you this one first, showcasing Rickie’s voice. It’s a moody and delicious version of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good,” and it definitely proves this band is … quite good!
The restaurant was at less than full capacity for the Sunday afternoon show, Continue reading “20th Century Kids Live at the Phoenix”
Say goodbye to police brutality!
Finally, someone has solved the problem.
Police unions nationwide have unanimously adopted a new policy that will require officers to stop what they’re doing and check with professional basketball star Lebron James before proceeding, in the case of a deadly knife fight. The policy also extends to fist fights and gun fights. No action will be taken until Lebron understands what color each participant is Continue reading “Police Nationwide Adopt New Policy to Call Lebron James During Knife Fights”

This won’t take long. My friend Sean has the President on his talk show in a half-hour (Hannity), and I want to check that out, and my drummer’s coming by for a late night session of music! But I wanted to sum up the day, the beginning of a promising week.
It was 65-degrees in Rhode Island, the first sunny day that begged me to go outside and stay there!
I bought tickets to see my favorite band.
I know, you’re shaking your head in disbelief! But I did!
Sugar, in a month!
